    Worst you've ever felt after a defeat?

    Aye that’s the one. I couldn’t actually remember who scored and who was playing but it’s come back to me now. We had that quite nice black kit, dudek in yellow. Dudek dropped it and Southgate knocked it in. We all thought it was going to get disallowed as we thought it’d be kicked out jerzys hands at the time.

    Worst you've ever felt after a defeat?

    All the obvious games have been mentioned but one that also sticks out for me was a 1-0 loss Away against Middlesbrough in the early noughties, the season we signed Diouf and Diao (in fact they were on the way to be coming legends at the point of the day). at that stage me and my cousins were going to every game home and away, absolutely loving it. We’d been to Maine road and Elland road in the games before and we were winning well and I think top at that stage heading into a prosperous winter. on the day we rocked up to the riverside after a great 2 hour singalong on the coach, full of beans, ready to cement our place back in the league elite. We watched on the concourse before kick off united lose the early game which made it even better. what followed was a cold, windy frustrating afternoon, shit performance and a shit 1-0 defeat. the coach journey home was one of largely silence and the odd slightly nasty bickering. In fact I had seen a few uncomfortable and unsavoury incidents that day from some idiot reds that made me question whether going on the away days would be worth it going forward. I guess I just wasn’t ready for handling a defeat, this was meant to be a guaranteed win, and it felt like the end of the world. the game wasn’t particularly significant on its own, but after that I think we went on a massive run without a win which put the nail in coffin of the houllier/Thompson era. This was the start of it.

    Fabinho

    Rag arse not tag arse my phone predictive test and beers don’t help

    Fabinho

    He’s such a class act. What a player we got there, and totally from out of the blue. We’ve missed that type of player since Didi left. Being in the middle of the park you see much more of the game and you pick up a bit of wisdom about game management. He’s a smart cookie for sure, knowing when a short simple pass, or a defence splitter, or a cheap foul, or a shot, is the right decision to either speed up and keep the tempo flowing or slow the game and buy a bit of time and have a breather. him and Virgil seem to run the game at the easy pace they dictate and allow the others to run tag arse doing the damage. it was a big statement that he got dropped against villa to avoid the suspension for the city game and hope to god he stays fit and available for the rest of the season.

    Joe Gomez

    One thing about Gomez that stands out is that he is rapidly quick. but on the other hand the fact we see him doing a fair bit of sprinting per game (as opposed to virj) is possibly that he is having to run because he is usually in the wrong place. i feel there is a great player there but he needs to master his reading of the game, sense of positioning and gain his experience on the pitch and not from the stands. Id actually trust him in a big game too where he has no choice but to be ‘switched on’ and feel the pressure from minute one. I think the lower, lesser games are counter productive as the switching off is more likely to happen when the ball is largely at the other end of the pitch. risky but I’d play him ahead of lovren on sun

    What sauce do you have with steak?

    Peppercorn but only to dip your chips in. When I was cheffing I used to make a nice sauce with Demi glacé and bone marrow and parsley. though if you choose the right steak (I.e. ribeye or sirloin) and the fat is rendered properly you’ll ruin it with sauce. fillet (the last steak cut I’d choose) then you do need a sauce, or half a knob of butter, to give it any chance of flavour

    Italia 90

    The kits in 1990 were ace too. That Germany one

    Italia 90

    Was chatting to a few old miserable arses in work today about footy generally being shit these days etc and we harked on about the good old days. My contribution was that football for me pretty much started dying for me from from the autumn of 1990 onwards, not just because we haven't won the league since but because, for me, Italia 90 was the pinnacle. I was 9 going on 10 at the time and naturally your first 'World Cup proper' is always a memorable one. I had the full sticker album and ran home from school to watch the games. Footy then for me was like watching my arl fella or my hard uncles playing. The likes of voller, Klinsmann, gullit, etc. They seemed to be the type of fellas who could score worldies during the day but still be able to have 7 or 8 pints of a night in the boozer and would to knock you out if you got tricky. Back then boots were black, muzzies were muzzles and the music and telly graphics during the World Cup were unbeatable. There's some boss YouTube videos of the tournament. Make me cry almost. Football is a bit different when you're idolising spoilt millionaire teens who can't speak properly with boss teeth and shit hair. Anyone else love a bit of Italia 90?
  9. That Traore fella looked quite decent last night. Great pace. Not sure if the end product is all there yet but I could see him in one of our red shirts.

    Sorry, this was for the match thread!

    The result ruined my weekend but hey it's not the end of the world. The Burnley match was a shock too but we bounced back and turn things around for the good and have done really well since then. There's nothing wrong with a kick up the arse and a reality check now and again (and in all honesty we were 80% great in the game) and I think in terms of this young teams' development it will help us rather than hurt and there is a lesson to be learned that games are 95 minutes long and you can't switch off, hell its worked our favour too before. But it must start with a good performance and convincing win against West Ham. We have the capabilities of dry bumming them good and proper if the attitude and spirit is there. Chelsea aren't going to stay on that run forever and we still need to be in the mix to pounce when it does (hopefully end). We go again etc

    Kelly Brook has ace nipples

    I would crawl bollocko through a mile of broken glass just to make a stock out of one of her used tampons

    What would you do with Stevie if he returns?

    I remember thinking during the Burnley game, 'we're missing stevie here' as we were clearly lacking someone to just put their foot on the ball and take charge. But that was Burnley. Obviously things have changed, and sadly I don't think anything good can come of him being anywhere near the dressing room in this period. Maybe in the summer, yes, in a coaching role.

    little things that annoy the shit out of you

    When you open a pack of ciggies and the plastic wrap stuff sticks like static to your fingers and you can't get rid of it
