  1. Past hour
  2. Well, I don’t think he mentioned Hicks and Gillet in negative terms even once in the media, that’s what I mean by not supporting. But anyway I don’t blame him for not wanting to do that, because really you don’t want your players mouthing off in the press (maybe unless the actual future of the club is under threat?) Still it all worked out well in the end with our beautiful new owners.

    So the only real problem is the leaking roof, which has been fixed? And it once had a mice infestation which has presumably now been resolved too. Apart from that it just sounds like it needs a bit of cosmetic work so it looks a bit nicer. It's just all about the image for them. Superficial spoilt twats.

    We’re all guilty of it. I mean Rachel Riley came out with an anti-semitic comment but that was allowed to pass. So she thought fuck it and then falsely claimed to find anti-semitism just because people disagreed with her. The world is full of hypocrisy. Oh and she’s a cunt.

    A slight prick stung a large one is the natural conclusion drawn here.

    Is Allan still there? I dunno why, I thought they'd fucked him off.

    Looks like he's recovering, thank fuck. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-62537389

    Train wreck is the obvious conclusion.

    On paper, they’re a lower mid-table side. In reality, Calvert-Lewin appears to be made of paper, their manager isn’t very good, they’ve sold their best player who got them out of trouble a few times last term, and they still lack a second-choice striker. It doesn’t matter how many sides ought to be worse than them if they keep losing football matches.
  11. Sure Reina complained about them, but it didn't stop him using the situation to double his wages as the side was getting dismantled. I don't really know what "minimum to keep his local boy image" means. He either supported SoS or he didn't. And I know for sure he did, because he attended at least 2 events, maybe more I don't recall. He was never going to be complaining in the press every day. They all still had jobs to do.

    I got stung by a wasp yesterday. Not a full on sting I don’t think, more a slight prick. It hurt a bit but I remained stoic so as not upset my wuss friend who is scared of everything. An elderly lady examined me and pronounced me ‘not going to die’. Not sure what medical qualifications she has, but she does make nice sandwiches at the cricket club I was at. It came about as I was drinking a Blood Orange Cider and said wasp tried to fly into my mouth. I swiped the critter away but it managed to get a jab in beneath my lower lip. It’s not wasps I’m annoyed with though, it’s the wife. I told her my story of near death and she made no effort to even hide her disinterest. She is also little.
  13. If they set up like yesterday we *should* beat them, but you have to imagine will be looking for a reaction and up their game. ETH will have to change approach to avoid a severe beating. I’m expecting a tougher game.

    I think Starmers plan is a panic driven load of hogswill. The brains have been working on this for fuck knows how long and the solution is....pay what you did before? Hmm, excuse my cynicism, especially after the strange announcement the other day which would've compensated energy firms. Sounds like he's been shamed by Brown and shocked into action by the velocity of the public mood.. but as other posters have said, he's at least addressed the situation and has offered an alternative..so it's definitely a big move in the right direction... The real long, medium and short term solution is renationalisation. Anything less is the philosophy according to Nero.
  16. I always thought Carra did the absolute bare minimum to keep his local boy image with the fans. He said absolutely fuck all in the press. Whereas Reina, for one, actually criticised the owners. I don’t blame Carra and Gerrard, who was the same, for wanting to keep things in house, and maybe they didn’t really understand the criticality of the situation we were in. Supported? Not for me.

    Agree, sacking Moyes too early was the start of the imbalance. Top managers are very wary of taking the United job now.

    The toilet does seem to be in a pretty bad state... Obviously the rodent infestation refers to the 70,000 rats who attend games there! Apologies for first source - but seemed most thorough. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-9540559/Manchester-United-Glazers-left-Old-Trafford-decay.html https://www.theguardian.com/football/2019/dec/11/old-trafford-symbol-manchester-united-faded-grandeur-tired-worn-tottenham-stadium

    And he delivers. I reckon there's probably something wrong with you if you go to one of his shows and don't find at least one thing deeply offensive and at least one thing absolutely hilarious. He leaves standing any other comedians (right or left wing) who fancy themselves as brave or edgy.

    Let's face it, the Glazers are not the perfect model of how to run a football club. Does such a thing exist anyway? Ferguson was holding it all together just like Klopp is for us (imo). The problems arise when the genius/once in a generation manager goes, and they just can't fucking hack it. Chopping and changing managers like they're going out of fashion because of dissent amongst a spoilt fanbase. I said at the time it was a massive mistake to sack Moyes so soon into the job. I don't believe he would have turned it around for them but that's not the point. The point is they set a precedent that the manager will not get enough time, and round and round they go.

    I don't think Micah has any choice regarding his role. He's an imbecile.
  23. Of course the glazers are comparable to C&A. They both took millions out of the club, bought the club while loading the aquisitional debt on the club. The only difference is the glazers are better at it where c&a fucked themselves with their greed and ultimately got fucked by rising interest rates caused by the 2008 financial crisis, so couldn't refinance their debt. We have a lot to be thankful for with subprime.

    Yup. Sky loves it because when they have 3 or 4 pundits who have valid opinions they need 1 joker to balance things off. Otherwise it will just be too boring with everyone being sensible in the room. They need a Neville. They try to tell him directly and indirectly that he is talking rubbish without actually making any point but he doesn't get it because he just doesn't listen. Others then shake their heads and give up. I am sure if similar conversations happened somewhere without live cameras, Keane would have decked him a few times.
  26. It does have a De Boer feeling. It's not just they've lost 2, but the manner of both defeats, just completely shambolic and the manager looks like he's on mushrooms. Carra supported SoS and attended events while we were trying to get rid of C&A. He wasn't in the press every day, but he wasn't completely passive either.
