    The Beatles

    Just stuck them on for the first time in ages. Sounds strange, but I'd actually forgotten how good they were. I reckon in 50-100 years time, they'll be placed alongside the likes of Beethoven and Mozart in terms of reaching musical perfection. Revolver is an absolute masterpiece. No two ways about it.

    Frasier

    Is this, or is it not, the greatest sitcom of all time? Am in a huge phase at the moment whereby I'm going through every episode like Eamonn Holmes goes through Doritos. Am in the middle of the second series- comedy genius.

    Bedroom Horror Stories

    Seeing as this place seems to be inhabited by a percentage of sick-minded fuckers ("have you defiled a bird in their sleep" thread) I thought this thread would make interesting (and amusing) reading. Probably the worst thing to happen to me was a few months ago when I got absolutely hammered one night and ended up shagging a bird who's got a bit of a reputation for being a bit of a slag. As I was fucking slaughtered, I didn't use a condom when I've always been very careful regarding contraception. Anyway, the next morning I took her round the local cafe for a bit of breakfast and I was determined to gauge an estimate of her sexual history and if this slag reputation was warranted. I asked her how many people she'd slept with including myself and she stared into space while she totted everyone up, took a sip of her tea and nonchalantly remarked "about 30." Fucking hell, my jaw nearly dropped into my fried brekky and then went off to get tested. I was absolutely convinced I'd caught something from her and was in agony waiting. Thankfully, when the results came back, I was all clear and I don't think I've ever been so relieved in my life. Was a bit of a lucky escape as well because apparently now, there's a strong rumour going around that this unnamed young lady has genital herpes. Absolutely horrible experience.

    Poetry

    Anybody into it? Anybody got any favourite particular poems or poets? More to the point- does anybody want to admit they've written some in the past or still do? I'll get the ball rolling with a favourite of mine: This Be The Verse Philip Larkin They fuck you up, your mum and dad. They may not mean to, but they do. They fill you with the faults they had And add some extra, just for you. But they were fucked up in their turn By fools in old-style hats and coats, Who half the time were soppy-stern And half at one another's throats. Man hands on misery to man. It deepens like a coastal shelf. Get out as early as you can, And don't have any kids yourself.
  7. Anybody seen this? Going the pictures tonight to have a look at it and can't wait. Got some excellent reviews and the trailers for it look class.

    Sven-Goran Eriksson

    Sven back in football as manager of the Ivory Coast. I know he's not the most popular, but I love it the way he goes from job to job taking a pure wedge and getting his end away in the process without caring what anybody thinks of him. Fucking legend. Eriksson hired to deliver 'honourable' Ivory Coast World Cup - International, Football - The Independent Eriksson hired to deliver 'honourable' Ivory Coast World Cup Former England boss Sven-Goran Eriksson has been charged with ensuring Ivory Coast deliver an "honourable" performance at this summer's World Cup after he was last night appointed to lead the team in South Africa. The veteran Swede succeeds Vahid Halilhodzic, who left the post in the wake of the Elephants' disappointing quarter-final exit at the hands of Algeria during the African Nations Cup at the start of the year. Former Real Madrid boss Bernd Schuster and former Wales and Manchester City manager Mark Hughes were both recently linked with the job, however 62-year-old Eriksson's experience worked in his favour. A statement released last night by the national federation, the FIF, said: "Aware of the great expectations of our population who have taken a keen interest in the matter, the executive committee focused its choice on Mr Sven-Goran Eriksson. "The Swede has been, among others, coach of England and Mexico. He is an experienced technician who has been proven. "His mission is to lead our team during this World Cup, and to ensure that there is an honourable participation in a competition reserved for the top 32 football nations in the world, and it obviously will be difficult. "Therefore, the executive committee of the FIF appeals to the sacred union between the 'Elephants' and their coach." The FIF have not decided on the future leadership of the team beyond the World Cup, with Eriksson's appointment likely to be a short-term measure. Eriksson's last job was as director of football at Notts County, who he left in February, but he has recent international experience having been boss of Mexico until being sacked in April 2009. He led England from 2001 until 2006, twice steering the team to World Cup quarter-finals. Ivory Coast have been handed a difficult World Cup group draw against Brazil, Portugal and North Korea. Their World Cup squad will include Premier League stars Didier Drogba, Salomon Kalou, Emmanuel Eboue and Kolo Toure, plus a host of other players playing at a high level in Europe, and they had been fancied to make a big impact in the first World Cup to be played in Africa. Their draw has lowered expectations, though. They begin their campaign against Portugal on June 15 in Port Elizabeth, before playing Brazil on June 20 in Johannesburg. Eriksson will hope his team remain in with a chance of reaching the last 16 by the time they take on North Korea in Nelspruit on June 25.

    The shitness of modern football

    Thought Agnelli's comments about 'modernising' the current formates were pretty telling. Obviously this is just speculation, I wouldn't be surprised if this in some way a move towards a European Super League with the two other tournaments being of an equal stature offering token promotion slots to the winners as a form of lip service to competition or some kind of jeopardy involved. The removal of jeopardy from the sport is obviously an imperative aim of the big clubs because it severely impacts on their ability to make money. Rumenigge said it was disgraceful- or words to that effect- when Bayern drew Juve in the last 16 of the CL a few years back, meaning that one of the big hitters was going out, while other ties in that round included Wolfsburg v Gent and Zenit v Benfica. Similar to the late 80's when the movement towards the CL started on account of Real Madrid drawing Maradona's Napoli in the first round and Berlusconi thought it was mental because one of the big draws going out so early would have an impact on TV viewing figures. The irony is that it's the element of jeopardy that keeps us going back in the first place. Really, who the fuck is tuning in to watch, say, PSG v Juve in what could conceivably be a midtable dead rubber in a Super League format? Plus, a whole host of gimp fans at clubs have grown not used to seeing their club lose, so could see a load of fairweathers jacking it in easily. Plus, all you'd need is for Barca and Real to suffer a string of defeats- again, perfectly conceivable in such a format- and the toys would go out the pram and demands for further rejigging would grow.

    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    Today's edition of Marca: 'Barcelona should build a monument to Everton for spending 50m euros on Digne, Mina, and Gomes.' From the Camp Nou to the Camp Boo...

    He'll have a job. Lanzini's out injured for at least the season.

    Other Football - 2018/19 Season

    "The famous Anfield atmosphere is a myth. As if it'll affect our lads. They've played in Buenos Aires, Sao Paulo, and Clasicos. They're way more intense." Obviously not a patch on a few scals lobbing a couple of cans of Dark Fruits.

    Russia World Cup 18

    I think the main issue re VAR is how the 'clear and obvious' remit has been interpreted somewhat arbitrarily at times, particularly on handballs. You could argue, by definition, if you've changed your mind after looking at an incident from five different angles in slow motion, it wasn't a clear and obvious error in the first place.

    Russia World Cup 18

    Fucking sick of seeing the South Americans whinging. Emotionally unstable tarts. The Brazilians, in particular, always look like they're on the verge of tears. Get a bloody grip.
  18. Fair enough, I was more trying to convey the fact that it's a ball ache heaving your luggage about to the bus stop and waiting around. 'Mission' was probably the wrong word to use in that respect!
  19. Couldn't agree more about South Parkway. It's just an absolute con effectively labelling it as the airport's train station. Reminds me of that Simpsons episode where they redevelop the waterfront and Moe looks to have a flashy bar there, but it's really just an attractive exterior for a big fuck off tunnel that leads to his normal dive. You get off at South Parkway and it's still an absolute mission to the airport, never mind a complete faff! It should be a source of embarrassment that you can get a train from Lime Street direct into Manchester airport, but there's nothing similar available into the city's own airport.

    I'm actually 100% sure he would get cheered in that scenario.

    No tactical analysis at half time, just talking about the refereeing decisions and the Colombian coach being a div. No wonder we're a thick country.

    Russia World Cup 18

    Superb from both keepers but, fuck me, some players don't half run up to the ball stupidly. Unless you're Also or Hazard levels of brilliance from the spot, why break stride? Just fucking daft.
