Parlour games – Arsenal, 1992 Getting drunk just after a match is a bad thing. Getting drunk on a Tuesday night before a match is also a bad thing. Getting drunk immediately before a match that you're quite likely to have to play in is clearly, an extremely bad thing - not that Arsenal's Ray Parlour let that stop him. In the 1992-93 season, having been told he was not part of the squad to face Liverpool, Ray Parlour saw no harm in spending the afternoon in one of the hospitality lounges at Anfield necking lager.

You can see the man in his work just as clearly as you see Hemingway in A Farewell to Arms. . . . Critics had been attacking him for years over how little he did onscreen, but Eastwood may have known something they did not.” The Los Angeles Times noted that women in Eastwood’s movies have always been strong, interesting as both heroes and villains, and that “Eastwood may be not only one of the best, but the most important and influential (because of the size of his audience) feminist filmmaker working in America today.” The French film review Cahiers du Cinéma noted the “self-parodying subtlety” in Eastwood’s movies, while the London Daily Mail noted that Europe was discovering “hidden depths” in Dirty Harry.
