  1. Yep. I remember watching this on TV and the room erupting around this point.
  2. There is nothing childish about schadenfreude. Unless you are eine kind der garten.
  3. He's shown glimpses of real talent, got heaps of potential. And he scaplula'd us up into the PL so he'll always be looked upon with affection and gratitude. But he really needs to find some mean and harden the **** up sometimes. He's a big, strapping lad who's **** rapid but he's got to find his beast mode to get to the next level. He's got to go to bed tonight as his usual Jar Jar Binks-like self and wake up as Zlatanaldo. Full of running, piss taking, fire and vinegar.
  4. He would? Smith has a machine that will do that? Something like that one in The Fly where he has two pods, sticks the late twenties, shit, venal, lazy, useless Benteke in one pod and with a couple of zaps of electricity and plasma out springs a seven years younger, fit, hungry, loyal Benteke from the other? Yeah, OK.
  5. And that, dear reader, is the primary reason B€n£€k€ isn't worth a **** light, especially to us. He doesn't give a **** because he's always been about the money.
  6. AFAIK, from what has come out of the club, he'll be permanently sub-100% now. Or to put another way, his current and future 100%, however often or rare he's in that condition, will never be pre-injury level. So, yes, Macca and Ledley type managing and nursing is how it'll go, it seems, but I don't recall ever reading exactly what the injury was or how exactly it did and does affect him. It seems the club are being a bit quiet about all that and possibly for good reason. There's been stuff said about him playing when he very much shouldn't have and the club may very well be seriously embar
  7. He was on the bench in at least one of the last two games, wasn't he? Edit: He was on the bench for Wolves 10th Nov but not against the Barcodes.
  8. Really, just stop it now. That's a joke that hasn't been funny for about three years.
  9. As has been mentioned but can't be repeated often enough, we got hugely lucky twice. Not because that charlatan "steadied the ship", many managers could have done that. When RDM was blown out, we had a pretty good squad that hadn't delivered results and Bruce was given plenty to change the squad in his own image. And because he only got us to the cusp of the big time and failed by stinking Wembley out with the team and tactics in his own image. The double stroke of huge luck was his failure directly lead to Xia being exposed as a total chancer. The second stroke of luck was we d
  10. So that's us playing an OGS Manure next week, then.
  11. Second most stylish gilet-wearing Hotspur changeling his inner Tactics Tim. He even said a couple of days ago he'd be seeking to inject pashunn into the players.
  12. OK, I look forward to that. "OK, Little Danny - I can call you Danny, can't I? OK, Little Danny, I know this is going to be hard for you but do you think you can stop crying long enough to show me on the doll what Nas and Wes did to you when you tried to take their favourite toy off them?"
  13. Well, I did sort of cover that with the "savvy club or business" caveat.
  14. AFAIC, Spuds can sign Benteke now with my blessing. As Poch's replacement.
  15. The replacement negotiations were finally concluded, maybe? They wouldn't have sacked him without having someone lined up. All the bollocks about "the search starts now" that clubs come out with after a manager is sacked is just that, complete bollocks. Any savvy club, or any business for that matter, doesn't leap into the dark like that.
  16. That's true. Three times the karm charm, eh? The universe isn't done with you yet, blue nose, you utter word removed. Not by a long way.
  17. Just shows how many chances we are creating if he's scored as many and as frequently as that whilst being simultaneously disappointing. Imagine how many he'd have if he could keep his feet or head a ball.
  18. It's a very common for actors to do that "scouse brummie" accent, I've been hearing it since the days of "Crossroads". Years ago a mate of mine went off to uni and pointed out the only good aspect about the shite brummie accent was no bugger could actually take the piss out of it properly because nobody could actually do it. The best they could do is what actors who manage to avoid scouse brummie - or scummy, if you prefer - do and that's the yam yam midlands accent. Despite it being an utterly bone accent and sounding simple to reproduce, it's actually hellishly difficult for a
  19. I'm hoping for Norwich, Newcastle and WH (in perpetuity). I doubt the latter will go but I'll happily take two out of three.
  20. Which is just not true. He gets stick for his application, attitude and, to a slightly lesser extent, his actual ability.
  21. TBH, I'm amazed Smith keeps picking him. Surely he sees every day Wesley getting out muscled, dispossessed and nutmeged by the more mobile training cones?
  22. But apart from that, he's **** deadly.
  23. Not a bad set of PL results for us. Of all the teams around us who played - which was all of them - none of them got much closer or pulled away. In light of today's predictable loss it's the best we could hope for from everywhere else. It was looking even better until BHA snuck a late winner against Everton.
  24. If I were JT I'd be bombarding his old mate Didier to name his price for a couple of weeks 1-1 coaching for Wesley.
