In the war between millennials and baby boomers we have forgotten about the work-hard, play-hard Generation X

[This article was first published in 2017]

Don’t you know there’s a war on? It’s being fought right now, all around us, between the baby boomers and the millennials.

Opinions differ as to the exact parameters that define each group of combatants, but the boomers are generally thought to have been born between 1946 (the results of the post-war baby boom, when people were so happy to be alive after six years of conflict that they jumped, en masse, into the sack) and the early 1960s. The millennials, on the other hand, take their name from the fact they came of age at the turn of the new century, so are usually defined as being born in 1982 or later.

The boomers don’t like the millennials because they think the younger generation are feckless, whiny snowflakes who are scared of ...

Liverpool transfer news LIVE: Ismaila Sarr, Kylian Mbappe, Ousmane Dembele, Rhian Brewster and Georginio Wijnaldum


Liverpool are not done yet after signing Thiago Alcantara and Diogo Jota last week in a frenetic week that culminated in a big win at Chelsea to remain perfect after two games as they bid to defend their Premier League title.

A long-term, dream target is Kylian Mbappe, but Watford’s Ismaila Sarr is a more realistic addition before next month’s deadline. . Barcelona’s Ousmane Dembele, too, could be an option, though surely only a loan agreement could be reached for the French winger given the time frame and the Catalans still hoping to recoup most of the £124m they spent three years ago.

The Reds must also decide on the futures of Georginio Wijnaldum and Rhian Brewster, who is reportedly of interest to Crystal Palace and Sheffield United...

Spitting Image: ‘Gross and explicit’ trailer for BritBox comedy series released following Greta Thunberg criticism

The first trailer for the BritBox reboot of Spitting Image has been released, and has been met with a mixed reaction from viewers.

Reaction to the clip has been varied, with many people on social media stating that they “didn’t laugh once”.

Kevin De Bruyne: Man City targeting all four trophies this season

The Belgian playmaker insists targeting silverware is City’s prime motivation – not making up for last season’s frustrations.

City’s 2019-20 campaign ended disappointingly as they crashed out of the Champions League to Lyon at the quarter-final stage after finishing a distant second to Liverpool in the Premier League. They were also beaten in the FA Cup semi-finals by Arsenal.

De Bruyne insists that has now been put aside with fresh goals set for the new season.

“I think the motivation doesn’t change if you win or you lose,” said De Bruyne, who was typically influential in City’s impressive season-opening 3-1 win at Wolves on Monday.

Arsenal transfer news LIVE: Thomas Partey and Houssem Aouar latest, Matteo Guendouzi, Folarin Balogun – plus Premier League updates


Mikel Arteta is eager to strengthen still, though the Spaniard is also in need of slimming down his squad ahead of the transfer deadline on 5 October, with negotiations dragging on over several deals to freshen up his midfield.

Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi look set to be moved on, which would clear enough space and, hopefully in the eyes of the Gunners, raise enough funds to move for their midfield priorities: Thomas Partey and Houssem Aouar, who are both expensive.

Neither Atletico Madrid or Lyon appear willing to be flexible over their valuations, meaning the Gunners must sell first, though interest in Guendouzi has failed to pick up and Serie A clubs appear reluctant to offer more than an initial loan for the Uruguayan Torreira – here are the latest news, rumour...

ometimes, there’s just no beating a good plot twist. David Fincher’s grisly 1995 noir Se7en, which marks its 25th anniversary today, is celebrated for many things, among them its shocking final twist.

But even upon repeat viewings, many people don’t notice the subtle clues left earlier in the film, which tipped their hand towards Se7en’s climactic reveal.
