  1. When they ask who they should get in, I just get a mental image of thousands of fans of other clubs crammed into a street calling out names like that scene in life of Brian. Give it, Dawwen! "Have we got a Dawwen?" "We do, sir" "So be it, Dawwen it is!" *Everyone laughs*

    Steven Gerrard - Aston Villa Manager

    Found a 2010 list of the 100 biggest clubs in the world, Rangers are 81, Villa are a footnote in FC Basel's entry. Right from the glory days of bleacher report, that. Beyond reproach.
  3. Hadn't heard of it before, gave it a listen. Thought it was shit. Magnum and Ski Sunday. Weak group.

    The QAnon Thread

    I think it's good stuff to be fair. I mean, it doesn't compare to real chicken, but it's nice enough and takes on flavour well. The peppered steak one is nice. edit: sorry, thought this was the quorn thread.

    The Foodie thread

    That pasta is a bleak statement on the post-pandemic world. In many ways it belongs in the Art thread. Mayogeddon

    Boyata looks out of it here, nasty collision with Moore. He's up now he's been patched up. Still looks a bit dopey but, Boyata...

    Ramsay has been a liability for Wales today, just decked Neco trying to tackle him for some reason. Just focus on getting a late run into the box, Aaron. Also got to love that fairly sizable contingent that always shouts "SHOOOT" whenever some hard-working holding midfielder gets hold of the ball 45 yards from goal. Thought you wanted to score, lads...

    Steven Gerrard - Aston Villa Manager

    Trophies, Europe, showing leadership. Earning a job at a big club in Europe? I don't know for sure, but how do you rule out the possibility entirely. Even if he flops and goes elsewhere, I don't think it would rule anything out. Doesn't have to be taking over Klopp anyway, can be down the road from that.

    Steven Gerrard - Aston Villa Manager

    I don't think anyone wants Gerrard to be given the job without having proven his credentials as a manager, but I can't understand people that dismiss him outright. Like even if he does well you'd not want him? I guess there's Dave's view, which makes a bit more sense. But don't get it otherwise.

    The BBC

    The coverage of the astroworld tragedy is getting a bit much. Essentially laying it all on the performer, multiple stories about fire, security and police chiefs blaming him, but it's not clear he did anything in particular (but as they keep reminding us, has done in the past). When it first happened there were medical and security personnel saying it was clear things were going awry for a while so why wasn't their process to report and take action? Along with the failure to manage a rush on an entrance (released after the tragedy - blaming the attendees essentially), ugh... I don't know, not thread worthy, but hate seeing this unquestioning acceptance of events from the mouths of people who are most motivated to cover their own arses in cases like these. It'll all come out in the wash and maybe his team did ignore warnings and he did stoke the situation, but the reporting is kind of depressing.
  14. Considering premier Inn charge you £9.50 for their breakfast, that's good value. Needs some black pudding and another rasher though.

    Should the UK remain a member of the EU

    What does slavery have to do with that story?

    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    First club to shower their fans in shit both figuratively and literally.
  17. Yep, come prove yourself with us, we will sell you and you'll get a much bigger pay packet in a couple of years time.
