They just gave him two bathrobes, the holy hand grenade and a single glove. How can the Liverpool fans not respect the monarchy later?

They made the children’s choir sing something called “Zodok the Priest” who I’m pretty sure is a Dr. Who villain.

Pity they don’t have pop up thought balloons … “Christ this fuck’n hat is heavy” , “are we done yet? I really need to pee” , “thank god I didn’t drop the sceptre. It’s worth more than several commonwealth countries”

This feels like elder abuse - dress up the old man, make him try to balance a big funny hat while carrying a bunch of shit, parade him around the neighborhood, don't trim his eyebrows. Very awkward to watch.

Watching CBS and the British commentators are trying so hard to give this event gravitas and mystique.

Obsessing over William's kids and everyone trying to project their feelings onto Harry? It's really fucking weird.

I mean, it’s really hard to take any of this seriously but it is great theatre. The Brits are really, really good at this. It must cost a fortune.

The Guardian floated the number £125m. Which is less than one Jude Bellingham, to be fair.

Having a king seems like something you can generally ignore in daily life, but it must be so embarrassing at times like this. To look and see that the old man they're handing a big hat to is in some technical way the leader of your government. That an eighth of a billion pounds are being spent to give him the hat instead of on literally anything else.

This is the one global context where I do actually hate that Republicans were arrested protesting the governmental transfer of power, I'll give it that.

I know it’s City, but this seems like a weirdass line up for Big Sam to roll out. Maybe he really Pep’s equal…

They’re running him in the Derby later too, I hear.

It’s not just City playing 4 forwards, it’s Ake pushing up into the final third.

Apologies .. you should have told them to get stuffed when they asked for the Stone back for the coronation.
Yeah, that was a bit subserviant. But to be honest 'Stones of Destiny' - it's a bit dated. I'd be up for selling it if it means so much. or dig up some rock and make a fake one and fob them off with that.

Isn‘t that the (ancient) rumour anyways ? That the real one is hidden somewhere in the Hebrides?
I'm not too sure. I used to frequent this really good pub on woodlands road in Glasgow. Called the Arlington. They claim to have the Stone and i always thought it was a joke...a few years ago there was an article in the paper. The Arlington is a good pub by the way.

This is better from Chelsea. There's a few players in their team that look like they can play together. Having Kante back has given them a shot of energy. Mudryk and Madueke have been decent. A bit of craft and quality in the box and they could win this.
