  1. With all the sitters he misses he does do a great impression of someone who is shit though.
  2. Depends how you define it and it's a subjective term. He's been Player of the Year and been nominated for the Balon D'or a few times. He's not Messi or Ronaldo but he's been one of Europe's best players for the last five years.
  3. He's not good one v one with the keeper and his shooting is generally weaker than I see at Adrianna's Sunday footy. That being said, he's quite brilliant at everything else and is a really intelligent player. He can play pretty much anywhere and his decision making is usually spot on. He's probably the least convincing looking world class player out there. When we play City I'm a lot happier when isn't playing because he scares me more than anyone else they have other than De Bruyne, and now maybe Foden too.

    Can Martin Samuel get any lower?

    Probably the worst of all the national writers, and he's always been an absolute cunt. The worst moment of my life was a few years ago when I'd grown a bit of a beard and @RedKnight said I looked like Martin Samuel. We lost the Champions League Final that night, but that wasn't half as bad as the feeling I had when he made that comment.

    Premier League Round Up (Oct 17-19 2021)

    Any time I see someone absolutely welly an opponent it makes me laugh. It goes back to when I was a kid and that kind of thing happened all the time on the school field. Its just funny. I always remember my mate doing it to one of our own team-mates after he missed a pen. It's a long story that I'm sure I've mentioned before in a round up. Can't be arsed telling it again, but whenever I see that kind of challenge it takes me back to that moment back when I was about 10 and that's probably why I always think its funny. I blame VAR more than Dean. They've got the benefit of replays so there's no excuse. Of course he should have got the decision right too, but he only gets one look at it whereas VAR could have had no doubt.
  6. I would neither welcome nor object to it. Can see both sides, don't really care much either way, not least because we wouldn't pay the salary he gets at City.

    This week's round up https://bangaveragegolf.co.uk/2021/10/21/rory-roars-rahm-crashes-and-fitz-stays-the-course/ Bets for this week. I've had a couple of quid on Fleetwood, and a fiver on Xander/Fleetwood/Wallace all finishing in the top 10.
  8. It's a lovely gesture, he's just misunderstood.

    Is Aidy Ward still his agent or not?

    This is pretty much where I'm at. Football reasons, there's loads why it would make sense. He's City's most dangerous forward by an absolute fucking mile and I don't know why he's fallen out of favour. Financially though it isn't viable unless he takes a paycut, which he won't.
  11. I did used to call him "parsnip nose nan's hair" because that was my brother in laws go-to insult for him, but cabbage head is defo not one of mine!

    Atletico Madrid 2 Liverpool 3 (Oct 19 2021)

    Simeone running down the tunnel didn't really really faze me at all as I'd have been more surprised if he'd done the honourable thing and stayed for the handshake. I didn't mention it as by the time I wrote the report I'd forgotten about it. He's a horrible, snide rat and his team are a mirror image of that.
  13. Jules' breakdown of Atletico was so good I just wanted to applaud when he'd finished.

    I did shoot 87 on Monday. Missed birdie putts from 5 feet and 2 feet. Really thought I'd turned a corner with my putting but no, I'm still pure shit.
