    Samir Nasri

    He was a member of the side that provided us all with THE GREATEST moment in football history. Of course, I'm talking about QPR. For that he's a legend. On his day he was a great player and he played a big part in us in a couple of seasons. His goal against Sunderland in the League Cup final...

    If you could have written one of the great books, what would it be?

    I'd go for Freidrich Engels' "The Condition of the Working Class in England". It's an absolute masterpiece and gives an account of how people in England lived during the Industrial Revolution. A large part of the account is based around his time in Manchester and the conditions people suffered...

    All Time Top 1100 Albums : Violent Femmes (Violent Femmes) P137

    Well, this review is a bit unusual - for me anyway. I knew "Blister in the sun" as it was a staple of the indie clubs in the early 90s. I just assumed that Violent Femmes were one of those early 90s indie bands that had a couple of good singles, then faded away. In a way I thought of them as a...

    23rd September 1989

    I've dined out on this one for absolute years and it never gets tired for this bitter blue. Even though the 1-6 was a better scoreline, especially away from home, the 5-1 just really gets them wound up! In some ways, I wish the 1-6 was 1-5 just to repeat it! Every year I wish my red and blue...

    Southampton (H) | Post Match Thread

    Games like yesterday would've been wins if we had Harry Kane, it's really as simple as that. We knew last season we needed a centre forward, someone to finish the chances we create but we went for Messi, Ronaldo and Kane and ended up empty handed. We don't have a Plan B and most teams, when they...

    Clive Sinclair of C5 fame just died

    Completely agree mate. Back then bedroom programmers like Kevin Toms (wrote Football Manager the first ever football management game), Matthew Smith (Manic Miner, JSW) and Mike Singleton (Lords of Midnight and Doomdarks Revenge) were household names and responsible for some of the best games of...

    All Time Top 1100 Albums : Violent Femmes (Violent Femmes) P137

    I had a listen to this whilst working this afternoon and I'm amazed it's listed as one of the best 1100 albums. It's terrible. I don't mind Madonna's singles, they are catchy and decent pop songs. I'd put them up there as some of the best songs of the 80s/90s at times. That said, I strongly...

    Clive Sinclair of C5 fame just died

    Genuinely quite sad to hear about this. I do think in years to come he will be regarded as one of Britains most influential people in the modern era Whilst the thread mentions the C5, it's a bit disrespectful to think that is what he should be remembered for. He invented the ZX Spectrum and...

    Applauding opposition goals

    I'm another one who was there when Arsenal went 0-4 up in something like 20 minutes. They were absolutely unplayable and everyone in the ground knew they were watching something special. When they scored, everyone around me was clapping. By the time the 4tg went in and we were soundly beaten it...

    All Time Top 1100 Albums : Violent Femmes (Violent Femmes) P137

    Well, this review shows how subjective music is! I'd not heard this album before, but I LOVE Night and Day. I like Joe Jackson as a musician, he really knows how to play and is able to blend styles together and make it work. I think on this album it felt like he was trying to make another...

    20 year anniversary of 9/11 this weekend.

    I worked at a radio station and we normally had the station playing throughout the offices. I remember hearing that a light plane had apparently crashed into the twin towers, but in all honesty no one paid too much attention to it. The fact it was on the radio station was a bit unusual though...

    Who's the greatest American band of all time?

    A fantastic reply as usual @FogBlueInSanFran :) I take your points and of course, music is subjective. I think if it was who is the greatest "non band" then Louis Armstrong (I know he had a band behind him), James Brown, Duke Ellington, Little Richard, Robert Johnson, Muddy Waters, BB King etc...

    All Time Top 1100 Albums : Violent Femmes (Violent Femmes) P137

    It's a great thread this, plenty of food for thought and some interesting albums. Cheers for putting it together @BlueHammer85 :)

    Nothing beats the smell of coffee in a percolator when you come downstairs in the morning. It's absolutely amazing. If you took away my brew in a hot shower, you'd destroy me :)

    Who's the greatest American band of all time?

    I don't want to be controversial, but reading this list of 'best' American bands just shows how good the British bands are. You can't top this list of rock bands: The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, The Who, Stone Roses, Oasis, The Jam, T Rex, 10cc, Kinks, Dire...
