    Glad to hear it.

    United thread 2020/21

    Off topic, I know but ogling a dead woman's arse on something called Forces TV is a wonderful metaphor for post Brexit Britain.

    Past Managers you would have liked to see at City

    Giles, a clogger!? I can only assume you're too young to have seen him play and are working on some crude national stereotype? If it's a thing you are old enough to have seen him play, all I can suggest is the next time anybody asks you if you know anything about football, look down at your...

    Why are England so toothless as an international team?

    A lot of good points in this thread but something that appears obvious to me, from the outside looking in (in just about every sense, being Irish during these Euros) is that getting capped for England appears to be an end in itself for a lot of these guys. They'll do all the interviews, say all...

    Not really City-related, this (although there is some glowing praise for KdB) but worth a read. A sideways glance at how the football media (or the TV side of it, at least) conducts itself...

    It was modified a few years ago, as people who didn't particularly need a tax break to make ends meet, were moving in solely to take advantage of it Now, only the first 250,000 is tax free. In reality, very few artists make even a eighth of that amount from their art but it's a great idea. It...

    United thread 2020/21

    They don't think that. They have the figures to prove it doesn't happen. What they do believe is that there's a cohort of people who think their logo/crest on noodles or whatever product will encourage their kids to eat up or brush their teeth or whatever. Probably, there are adults in parts...

    I had been thinking that he might be a good replacement for Vardy at Leicester (even if he's nowhere near as good a finisher as JV, he has great pace).

    United thread 2020/21

    Which one of them was it a few years ago, that the media spoof was he was the sharpest brain the coaches at St George's Park had ever encountered, even they were learning off of him etc etc blah, blah, blah...? I think it might have been Schooled or Giggs? Laughable shite, it really is. If they...

    You're right. Don't know how I got that into my head. Although, I must admit too that I haven't read either Gregory or Georgy. I did read her "Precious Lives" and remember it was good. I promised myself that I would get round to the book that preceded it, "Hidden Lives" but, it of course, me...

    I didn't hear the programme but from what you have said I will nearly guarantee Davies knew Boyle is a spoofer. The evolution and transmogrification of nursery rhymes is a serious branch of study amongst folklorists. Characterising Boyle's contributions (eg Knick-knack, being one he has laid...

    FOUR YEARS since United's last trophy. FOUR DAYS since City's. Put that on a banner, why don't they? "Not in my lifetime", my arse.

    #SOO Save Our Olé Season III Ole, The Trilogy.

    At this stage, it might be for the best to see Ole get the chop. Why? Because he's not the problem. Their problem is recruitment. United have spent as much as City or Chelsea or anyone in the last few years, yet there wasn't one player the manager could turn to with even 50% confidence that he...

    Special shout-out this morning for Ireland's Virgin Media Sport who complained at full time that Villarreal were allowed to make five substitutes, thus negating all of United's valiant efforts to tire them out.

    Media Thread 2020/21

    To be fair to them, their Champions League win was overshadowed by Aguerooo and they got more ridicule over John Terry's fancy dress than praise for being the first (and so far only?) non-G14 team to win the Champions League. That said, fuck them. They were well-positioned to speak up for what...
