    Steve Bates says ‘you know’ in most of his contributions

    He’s a journalist, I thought they are supposed to have a supirior command of the English language. Saying ‘you know’ to par his sentences out doesn’t seem fitting to his profession

    It's called a straw man falacy· The straw man is a logical fallacy that occurs when a person argues against a misrepresentation of an opponent's argument rather than the actual argument itself. In effect, the person is building a false argument (the straw man) that is easier to knock down than the actual argument.

    Watching this morning and as usual the first section was dedicated to talking all things raggish , apparently the current United team dont have any leaders on the pitch , unlike back in the good old days of Roy Keane , Gary and Phil Neville , Cantona ,Vidic and Ferdinand etc . Jason Burt made the point that "not only did Fergie " but also those " leaders on the pitch" took the young Christiano Ronaldo " under their wing and convinced him to cut out the diving and theatricals "
    Leaving aside for a minute that this a complete re writing of history that would have made Joseph Stalin proud , the thought of holding up the likes of Cantona , Roy Keane and Rio Ferdinand as some shining beacons of fair play , let alone Fergie is laughable.
    Thing what got me most about it though , was how the rest of the panel , rather than calling him out for the utter bullshit he'd just come out with , remained silent as if this was already the new accepted "truth"....
