Liverpool youngster Clayton to miss the rest of the season

Liverpool youngster Clayton to miss the rest of the season Liverpool youngster Tom Clayton will miss the rest of the season as he undergoes surgery, the Liverpool Echo reports. The defender, who currently plays for the Reds’ Under-18 side, has been troubled by a foot problem this season and will now have work done on the injury. The 18-year-old signed his first professional contract in recent times and the club appear to rate the player highly. Clayton has been in Liverpool’s academy since he was eight-years-old and the versatile defender made his debut for the U18s under Steven Gerrard during the 2017/18 season.

Catastrophe is a British television sitcom first broadcast on 19 January 2015 on Channel 4. It stars Sharon Horgan as Sharon Morris and Rob Delaney as Rob Norris

We ’re heading into season three now, premiering on Prime on April 28. But if you’re late to the Catastrophe party and need some speeding up, the A one night stand turns into a week-long fling, resulting in… conception. The two figure out how to maneuver through this life -changing event together.

Tonight’s season finale of Catastrophe is going to make you cry. With laughter, as always, but also with emotion, as this is the episode that pays tribute to the sparkling, hilarious, late Carrie Fisher. As Rob’s mother Mia, Fisher played an extremely unlikeable Bostonian who spent her time bidding for useless trinkets on eBay, refusing to learn her granddaughter’s traditional Irish name and trying to convince her son to abandon his "foreign baby". But for a comedy whose very name warns just how calamitous the storylines will be, Fisher’s character fit in perfectly and offered the light and dark for which we know and love Catastrophe – when she wasn’t kissing her dog on the mouth (Fisher’s real-life pet, Gary), she was offering her son sombre, sincere warnings about the effects of domestic violence. She is – and will be – missed by everyone, cast and viewers alike. As will the show itself.

Janice from Friends finally reveals the inspiration behind THAT laugh

Janice from Friends finally reveals the inspiration behind THAT laugh 'That laugh was a really organic life-saver because Matthew Perry was so funny'

in female friendships, and made us laugh until we were sick; with Catastrophe she showed us the terror of love, and made us laugh until we cried. If you’ve missed it , Catastrophe is the story of two potty-mouthed 40-somethings, Rob (played by her co-writer, US comedian Rob Delaney) and Sharon

Zeuxis, a 5th-century BC Greek painter, is said to have died laughing at the humorous way he painted the His widow later sent The Goodies a letter thanking them for making Mitchell' s final moments of life so The curse upon him, he begins laughing uncontrollably, and is later mentioned to have died

Because tonight also marks the end of Catastrophe itself. Airing for the first time on Channel 4 in 2015 after the BBC turned down the script, the show was an instant hit and a second series commissioned almost immediately – series one began in January of that year, with series two following nine months later. Since then, the show’s creators and writers, Sharon Horgan and Rob Delaney have been nominated for and won an impressive number of BAFTAs and Emmys. Going by the usual markers of success, Catastrophe was a phenomenal comedy triumph, opening the doors for the likes of Fleabag and Horgan’s other creation, Motherland.


It’s rare that a comedy – or television show of any genre, for that matter – about parenthood focuses more on the parents' lives than how they relate to their children, but we knew Sharon and Rob’s innermost thoughts. Their relationships to other characters, such as the incomparable Ashley Jensen as uptight stage mum Fran, and her sweary husband Chris, gave us access to another dimension of their lives, showing that a family is made of more than those who share DNA.

But it was Sharon and Rob and their honest, stitch-inducing humour that kept us tuning in, whether they were cutting each other down – "Is your email address still impatientsh*[email protected]?" "Is yours still [email protected]*nt?" – or professing their love for one another in a way only they could: "I was really touched seeing you go apesh*t at someone for me." Theirs is the sort of relationship we all hanker for (although perhaps without the alcoholism and the money troubles), best summed up by Rob himself: "Even if I wanted to kill you, I wouldn’t kill you. Or have you killed."

Reggie Bullock is a Laker but woes over Davis continue for LA

Reggie Bullock is a Laker but woes over Davis continue for LA The LA Lakers have acquired Reggie Bullock as the Anthony Davis trade saga drags on. The Detroit sharpshooter arrives in Los Angeles in return for Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk and a 2021 second round draft pick. Bullock has grown into a starter under new coach Dwane Casey, averaging 31 minutes a game and shooting almost 40% from behind the arc. He will provide some much-needed depth for a Lakers team who are set to trade the likes of Josh Hart in a possible deal for Anthony Davis. This trade – while not the one many Lakers fans were waiting for – should still fill them with optimism, as the Front Office appears to be preparing for life without the Lakers’ young core.

Desperation can make many of us singles too serious. We see every first date as a life -or-death situation. We tense up on meeting new people, terrified If you can, you not only lessen the degree of the catastrophe if something does go wrong, but you also greatly improve the chances that the new

Of course, it wasn’t perfect — the representation of BAME characters was mostly dismal, and the only trans character we met throughout the whole series was stereotyped as a sex worker.

It’s hard to pinpoint why we all fell in love with two dysfunctional adults who accidentally started a family. Perhaps it’s because they made us feel better about our own mistakes – we might text our ex every Friday night after too many post-work drinks, but we’ve never been impregnated by an American man we don’t know and may not even like, beginning a relationship that Sharon described as "like a heart attack or seizure or something". We might accidentally call our new boss "mum" but we’ve never loaned our brother-in-law thousands of pounds only for him to invest it in dodgy overseas real estate. We might have been horrendously late for work and blamed it on public transport when in fact we were in bed scrolling through Instagram, but we’ve never accused a colleague of sexual harassment because he left a wet patch on our desk – only for it to transpire that the roof was leaking. Or have we? The brilliance of Catastrophe was that we could channel our embarrassment, blunders and our darkest opinions through a medium that wasn’t only validated, but loved. It made us realise that really, we’re all Sharon and Rob, just doing our best with the catastrophe that is life.

The final episode of Catastrophe airs at 10pm on Tuesday 12th February on Channel 4. Series 1-4 are available now on All 4.
