  1. General Election 2017

    Cue more anti Corbyn posts on FB from dumbass Tory voters trying to deflect the flack. Theresa May must be one of the most stupid PMs this country has ever had, in fact DC wasn't exactly Brain of Britain either.

    After the glory of the Radiohead set last night, I thought I'd give Foo Fighters a go I ended up watching Radiohead's 97 Glasto set. I dunno, maybe it's Dave Grohl, just can't get into them, always preferred Audioslave when it came to rocking out.
  3. General Election 2017

    2 days on and social media is still doing my head in. I didn't realise I had so many facebook friends who were tories, or hypocrites as they're otherwise known.
  4. General Election 2017

    Well done Theresa May and to think of all the people branding Dianne Abbott as thick. Tory arrogance explodes in their faces again.
  5. General Election 2017

    Erm, yes and no. Many moons ago someone lent me a book about bawdy 17th century verse and there was a line in one poem that went "he pulled out his budget and gave her a dose" It helped me get though many a Chancellor's speech.
  6. General Election 2017

    In the 16th and 17th centuries, budget was a slang word for penis. Puts it all into perspective really.

    Quote from the BBC story on Rock AM terror alert An hour later Good work, the BBC.
  8. The Bundesliga Thread

    So Tuchel goes, which is a bit of a shame, TT cites the fallout over the Monaco game as the reason, i.e neither he nor the players were consulted over playing the game less than 24 hours after the bomb attack, something which the BVB chief executive denies. They've been linked with former Gladbach boss, Lucien Favre, who's 59. So much for young managers then. Still rate Dembele's Pokal Final goal, BTW.

    Anyone see Dembele's goal against Frankfurt in the Pokal final yesterday?
  10. Manchester Arena Explosion

    At Twickenham today the extra security was conspicuous by its absence before the game, just the usual frisks and bag checks. However I did see a number of armed police after the game and there were extra security personnel stopping and searching anyone trying to get into the ground. I guess the main focus was on Wembley, understandable I suppose and let's face it, the cops are spread pretty thin these days.

    Aubamayang scores 30 goals and doesn't get picked. Gott und himmel!
  12. Manchester Arena Explosion

    We're at Twickers for the Aviva Premiership final (COYW). It's reassuring to know that there'll be extra security measures, but having seen armed police and sniffer dogs at last years Redskins-Bengals game at Wembley, it all feels a bit surreal too.
  13. The Bundesliga Thread

    So Aubamayang (or yung or yong depending on which BT sport commentator it is) hits 30 league goals for the season. Interestingly, a third of them were assisted by Ousmane Dembele, that's some statistic.

  15. The Bundesliga Thread

    BVB seem to be running out of steam (not surprisingly in many ways) and there are mutterings in the German press that Tuchel could be on his way out. He was a bit vocal over playing Monaco so soon after the bomb attack (which I agree was a daft decision), which I gather (from the ropey google translation) didn't go down too well. Some of the players have been anonymously complaining about the boss too. Add in the rumours about Aubameyang, Reus and Dembele and it adds up to what looks like a period of turmoil at Signal Iduna.
