British Band Tournament ... (Like the Sitcoms)

Recommended Posts

It's been on my mind for days that I'd (we all) missed someone out. Cast fully deserve to be in this. Might fuck Travis off for them.

 

I'll take a vote. 

 

Cast x 1

Travis

Neither of them should be anywhere near it. Put Elvis Costello and the attractions in.

Just make sure Fleetwood Mac are in the American one. Reckon I’ll cry if I can’t vote for Nicks.

Not easy making a list like this but The Courteeners, The Vaccines and The Cribs have all got a lot more quality and quantity of tunes than a load of the bands mentioned in the list on page 12.  They all go under the radar generally for different reasons.

The Courteeners, The Vaccines and The Cribs shouldn’t be anywhere near a top 64 British bands of all time, especially when the like of Buzzcocks, Elvis Costello and the Attractions and Deep Purple, didn’t make the list.

The Courteeners are fucking terrible. I can't understand how they are anywhere near the size they are. 

They’re genuinely not.  I was not remotely into them and caught them at Glastonbury in the John Peel tent one time About 10 years ago.  I thought they were brilliant despite not knowing a single song which is usually the sign of a good band.  I’ve listened to them since and been to see them live 4/5 times.  The first 3 albums are packed full of great songs.  Anyone who says they’re terrible clearly hasn’t listened to them or is making a judgement call on not nineteen forever or their recent stuff which is drab.  They’ve barely had any radio play either over the years.

 

Quite similar to the Maccabees who also aren’t on the list but are fantastic live as well as on their studio albums.
 

People get up the arse of bands like Pulp or Ocean Colour Scene and they’ve barely got 3 decent songs to rub together.

I've never seen anyone write so much shite about music. I've seen them live on the main stage at the Isle of Wight and they were shite. Pulp have barely 3 decent songs to rub together? You are chatting whallop. The Courteeners are garbage. 

 

I know its all about opinions but fucking hell.

I'd post the randomiser list mate but wouldn't most rather wait for the ties to appear rather than start discussing them earlier?

    • Whatever it's meant to be, and whether we've signed up to it or not, the key part in all of this is that we as a club are not seen as the main driving force behind it, as happened with Project Big Picture. The Mancs were as involved as we were with that, but they managed to portray themselves as simply following our lead when the shit hit the fan with the media. We're always going to be seen as one of the main players for a breakaway league but that is preferable to being viewed as the instigator.
    • Just leave the fucking game alone! Fuck VAR and fuck all this new bollocks. Oh and City aren't 'Big 6' they are lottery winning wankers who nobody is even arsed about. Wankers
    • It's just panic setting in that it undermines the fsg sell to buy model. The only people arsed about a sell on clause are those dreaming of one day selling him on and moneyballing it in the next transfer window. Everybody slightly normal would be thinking  1. He's a bargain 2. We want him to play his career here. So we don't need to care about sell on clauses.  3. If he wants to go to some mega rich club somewhere down the line, it means we've had a wonder talent on our hands and enjoyed his success for a initial tiny fee.  4. If he doesn't go on to hit the heights we all hope, it's still a tiny fee and we'll clearly still make a profit. It reduces the risk of the transfer should some of the fee today be linked to future sell on.  5. It's only right the club that develops him gets a reasonable fee for developing a talent that we thought was good enough to play in our 1st team squad at 16!    Bottom line, surely all anyone wants is him to be fucking brilliant and spend his career here? Who's arsed about a sell on?
    • They literally make it up as they go along. That offside was really tight yet they looked at it for all of 30 seconds yet Firmino’s last week was checked for about 3 minutes till they got the line right so they could disallow it   
    • Ok I really don't understand offside now, why were they checking that cash fella for firminos goal to see if he touched it to make Jota onside and just now checking the Fulham penalty to see if the Fulham player was offside despite it going straight to a defender?
