  1. I think that the 1995/96 season was Fowler's best year. He was absolutely brilliant for us, and both Collymore and McManaman were excellent too for the most part, so the 3 of them in attack made us lethal. We still had a tendency to drop stupid points at times, but to me it seemed as though that was the first time since we'd last won the league where we had a consistent spell and a long unbeaten run. And it came after a month bookended by defeats to Newcastle, losing the derby at Anfield for the first time in ages, and getting knocked out of Europe by Brondby.

     

    Collymore proved to be a problem behind the scenes as his 2-year stint went on, but the biggest disappointment was that the players simply didn't turn up for the cup final. Unless you count the white Armani suits. Man Utd were shit that day, but we were even worse. I can't even recall us having a chance, and we'd dicked them in the league that season. That was the first time I felt truly gutted after a defeat. Not even the 1989 anticlimax hit that hard.

    Wasn't BCG compulsory in this country.

     

    It was when I was in secondary school. We had the heaf test (6 needles), and if you had a reaction to it within 7 days, you had to have the full BCG jab. We heard all sorts of stuff about it, such as the needle having to be driven deep until it hit bone, and that you'll be left with a massive scab. People were bricking it. My heaf test showed fuck all until day 6, when it turned purple and bled out into my school shirt. That was a fucking relief, let me tell you!


  3. The owners have a history of making unpopular decisions that they end up backtracking on. Our current group of players and coaching staff have a history of doing things for the benefit of the many rather than the few. There is still a chance for all sides to come out of this looking a lot better than they currently do.

  4. "Ooh, spiders are great because they eat all the other bugs in your house!"

     

    A few questions. Why are there so many other bugs in your house? Why are there so many other bugs in general? Why are there bugs whose sole purpose seems to be to eat other bugs and multiply? Mother Nature with its £20 solution to a £10 problem right there.

    Been thinking about subscribing to The Idler recently, but I'm waiting for a trial offer.

     

    That was great when it first came out, but then, like Empire, they basically sold out to the big studios to get the big exclusives for the biggest films. Empire took a downturn when they basically championed all things Star Wars, banging on about the films for about 6 months before finally awarding 4 or 5 stars for a film that even the review couldn't mask the mediocrity. They overdid it with Harry Potter and LOTR franchises too. Anyway, I digress.

    FourFourTwo was good for a while, as were Evo and Top Gear.

    If I don't watch the first series won't that mean I'll be missing out on getting to know the characters?  I felt, from the small amount I watched, that it was ones of those shows where you had to know the character in order for the situation to be funny. 

     

    Being a spin-off, Frasier did have a head start in that respect. The character of Frasier was known to audiences, and I think his wife Lilith appeared in Cheers too so she wasn't a new character. The others, like Marty, Niles, Daphne and Roz were created specifically for the spin-off, and it was easy to do because they shifted the setting from Boston to Seattle.


  7. The thing about the Belgian top division is that it's a regular round robin competition for about two-thirds of the season or something, then gets split into top and bottom halfs, where they have play-offs. What happens is that all the teams carry over 50% of their points total accumulated over the regular season, and the play off system determines the champions, the European spots and the relegation spots. So it isn't necessarily the top side in the regular season that wins the whole thing. The thing is, the regular season was only a game away from completion, and the vast majority of the placings were set in stone anyway so play off places were pretty much already decided, and Bruges were miles clear at the top (Mig gets a winners medal!), so to declare the season complete at this point doesn't affect a whole lot.

     

    It's trickier to do the same thing in countries where the league is a round robin format all the way through, even if certain teams are miles clear at the top or miles adrift at the bottom.

     

    Nulling and voiding should be written into league statutes so that a solution is set in stone for any future event where a season gets curtailed. However, it should only apply if, say, less than two-thirds of the season has been completed. There should be something to state that the season should resume after a certain period of time, and only call a halt if that isn't possible.

     

    There is no ideal situation, because we are living through circumstances that have not been encountered before. There is now, however, an opportunity to put contingencies in place.

    It's the nagging gene, they're all born with it & with some of them it's completely out of control.

     

    I sometimes wish I was bent for this reason but then the bloke who takes it up the shitter in a gay relationship is probably even worse than a woman. No tits for a start.

     

    If that was you, he'd have to dodge all sorts of flotsam and jetsam.
