  1. Things that piss you off that shouldn't

    I like it. I shall add that to my Mount Everest of useless but interesting information
  2. Things that piss you off that shouldn't

    That would be hilarious in Ireland. We're just a pack of messers really

  4. Academy General Topic

    That's precisely what I got from keeping the old VT reserves thread updated and I really miss that. You don't just learn about your own players - but by McGrath DO you learn about your own players - you also quickly learn about the hot prospects in every team and generally become familiar with the league as if it was the main one. Even moreso in fact because your own interest in a reserve or development league becomes one of your only sources of info into it, as the league won't have the array of websites dedicated to telling you everything there is to know about it, so you have to do your own digging. To this day I still see names dotted about the leagues of players I would have come across years before their debuts. You of course have the added level of being able to pop down and see them in the flesh, and for that I will always be jealous (in a nice way!)
  5. The Film Thread

    Do some of you still buy DVD/Bluray discs? I know some people like having a physical library that they can finger through (ooo err). I know people for example who still insist on buying their music on CD, sometimes because of the collectible packaging, or just for owning the physical original etc (no fear of deletion). Or have you all done away with that?
  6. Things that piss you off that shouldn't

    Whenever you feel useless in your job. Remember, it's someone's job to fit indicators on BMWs.
  7. Pre Match Thread

    Bree is back in contention after returning to training. Hutton has been doing well but this is good news all the same.
  8. The "Witton Lane" Boxing Chat Thread

    What's the thinking on Haye v Bellew? Both in terms of who you think and who you want to win it. Am I going against the grain in wanting Bellew to win? Or does everyone else think Haye is a bellend too ?
  9. Scott Hogan

    Injury prone does not at all mean feigning injury. It means he is 'likely or liable' to suffer from them.
  10. Scott Hogan

    Well I hardly expected you to agree with me Let's both call it what we like. It'll be interesting to see how many games he plays for us versus how many he misses. Then we can both call him the Terminator and decide whether it's an ironic name or not.
  11. Scott Hogan

    1. Brentford pre-season 14/15 injured ankle 2. Brentford 14/15 injured left ACL 3. Brentford 14/15 re-injured same ACL 4. Brentford 15/16 hamstring injury 5. Villa ankle 24 years of age and 70 games under his belt. Don't get me wrong. I've liked what I've seen from him and he looks a very good striker when he's on the pitch. My worry is how often he'll be on the pitch. This bad start is a continuation of his career to date and there's little rational reason for why that will all suddenly change.
  12. Scott Hogan

    Tell you what. You tell me why he isn't injury prone and I'll tell you why he is.
  13. Scott Hogan

    Good news that the injury prone striker we bought in January will only miss up to 5 games from February through March.
