    Most overrated band ever?

    Definitely Coldplay. How a substitute Geography teacher has managed to make millions sitting in front of piano and churning essentially the same song out for the last 20 years is one of lifes mysteries. No imagination, dire lyrics, and to top it all off he is apparently teetotal and a vegetarian. At least throw a TV out of the window or summit!!

    World Cup 2022: Qatar

    There are no brown paper bags full of cash for FIFA if we win it though, which is why I think it will never happen in my lifetime. England could host a World Cup tomorrow if it wanted to. There are easily 10-12 stadiums in England alone that would maybe need a lick of paint at the most, and the transport infrastructure, although unreliable, is already in place. You can add the Millennium Stadium, Ibrox, Celtic Park, and Hampden to that if we fancied a UK bid as well. Qatar are building a World Cup from scratch. 5 brand new stadiums, the other 3 being upgraded, and planned second terminal at Doha Airport give FIFA multiple opportunities to negotiate many lucrative backhanders..Part of me hopes this is just the last breaths of the Blatter legacy, but I'm not so sure.

    Careers cut short through injury

    Not sure if it really counts as an injury, but the one that always sticks with me was Fabrice Muamba having to stop playing at 24. Another one is Adrian Doherty. He was supposed to be the best of United's 'class of 92', but suffered a career ending cruciate injury just before he was due to make his debut. He then moved to Amsterdam with work, and died after slipping and falling into a canal at 26. There is a book about him called 'Forever Young' .

    Villa Kit 2018-19

    No more Under Armour then.......
  5. It was Full Throttle on the PC for me. Some of the puzzles in it were so inconsistent, and I refused help from anyone else. It took me weeks.......

    Players you've completely forgotten about

    Jocelyn Angloma, under rated fullback, and probably should have played for a bigger club during his career.

    General Chat

    This is one of the weirdest things I've ever read....... #ballsin all of the way. Without wishing to open another can of worms, it seems that a majority of the people in here go 'over the top' of the boxer shorts (i'm in this group as well). I've always wondered whether anyone uses the front flap/fly/Y in the boxer shorts, and if not, why do they always have them?

    January Transfers

    Maybe he wanted to ensure Everton saw some benefit. Delph signed a new contract with us to ensure we saw some money from the deal. Either that, or he realised that being a squad player at Chelsea gave him a better chance of going to the World Cup than being ostracized at Everton......

    Jack Grealish

    I don't know whether it is just my hungover eyes, but does he seem to have grown taller and filled out a lot more whilst been out injured? Particularly against Boro, I thought he seemed to impose himself physically a lot more than I've seen before. I remember Ronaldo doing something similar at United, one minute a gust of wind could have blown him over, and the next he was built like a brick out-house..... If he can add a bit of pace and power to the footwork and skill, then he could run the show for years to come.

    Formula One - 2017

    I understand that Verstappen has essentially broken the rules, but why give the drivers that option in the first place? Every driver is going to try and find corners to cut and shave a few seconds off, and that track layout gave him that option. If he had to put 4 wheels onto the grass to get past him, firstly he may think twice about doing so, and secondly, if he did go for it and got through, then he'd deserve that place. Also, if cutting that corner gains an advantage, why were cars not doing it there for the whole race? As far as I'm aware, there were only two corners that the stewards were looking at for the whole weekend, and that wasn't one of them.

    I do think that was because he wanted to check that Ederson was okay. To be fair he did look gutted about what happened, and had a look of genuine concern. Extra games on top for refusing to leave the field would be harsh....... (but this is the English FA so it wouldn't surprise me!!)

    Things You Don't "Get"

    I drive around 30,000 miles with work every year. I can pretty much say I've never had any sort of near miss from Monday through to Friday. Typically, everyone on the motorways in both rush hours knows the motorway etiquette and has experience of driving them. However, it scares the s**t out of me driving on motorways at the weekend, its like Wacky Races. (particularly Sunday mornings....)

    Irreverentad's Relationship Advice Thread

    My two pence worth..... I had the perfect girl, as well unwanted advances from a hot girl at work. I thought I did the correct thing by telling my girlfriend that this girl at work was laying it on thick, and that I wasn't interested (and wanted marriage, kids, the works with her). Unfortunately by doing this, the GF got paranoid, jealous, unbearable to live with and we ended up splitting up any way! So sometimes even doing the right thing can royally screw things up! Probably not helping you @Stevo985, sorry!!
