    All responses to points that were never made. I'll leave it there. I see what we're doing here
  2. Jack Grealish

    Concede the point though. You said a lot of younger players. There simply weren't. Stop demonising him. Yes he's his own worst enemy but he's had a terrible environment. He's hiding under being a youngster until he's no longer a youngster. He's still a youngster whether his critics like it or not.

    Guess how many younger players were even remotely regular in the first team in 14/15 or 15/16 ? 14/15 - One player. Grealish. Next youngest regular was Okore, 3 years his senior. 15/16 - One player. Grealish. Next youngest were Okore, Veretout & Gil, 3 years his senior. So while the environment may have been just as poisonous for everyone, there was only one youngster having to develop and perform in the spotlight of that omnishambles of a first team in that environment and being judged accordingly by everyone. Sometimes they're not excuses. Sometimes they're just reasons.
  4. Things that piss you off that shouldn't

    Sounds like the kind of person who has their priorities all wrong. Superficial stuff and public perception of her being disproportionately important. Oh well. Not an attractive trait in a person at all.
  5. Things you often Wonder

    How anyone could work full time in a shop like Yankee Candle without being at least partially anosmic.
  6. Paddy's "Things that cheer you up"

    I'd say the first one there looks right
  7. Paddy's "Things that cheer you up"

    I'm always at it. Playing with words. I've always just liked vocabulary in general, but sometimes my messing inadvertently spills over into normal everyday conversation. I remember having some traffic-related conversation with a colleague where, before I even knew it, I had referred to a roundamebout.

    It's up there with The Exorcist, The Shining and Norbit for sheer horror value

  10. Things that piss you off that shouldn't

    I used to be like that at the previous one I went to. Such anxiety! There were about 6 of them and I only liked 2. But eventually I got to the point where I said **** this, it's my haircut, and I just used to let people skip ahead of me until one of mine was available. Turns out it's quite regular for people to do that. Now where I regularly go there's only 1 bloke. Proper old school. My rant the other day was because I had to pop out during lunch to get one and I went somewhere I'd never been before (and never will again).

  12. Gym Routine

    So I went back yesterday for the first time in a few months to see what I could and couldn't do. I started with a 10 minute jog. That was OK. Then very gingerly did an empty bar bench press, then 1x5x40, then 1x5x60 and it was just about OK, but I was just concentrating on not re-injuring. Did some skull crushers and had to stop half way through 2nd set and then managed to do a full set of dumbell curls albeit at a lower weight. I didn't even have the range of motion in my shoulder to properly grab the bar for a squat, so I left content that I did what I did but that I'm going to have to see someone about this. No bueno.
  13. Pre-match thread

    Suspensions are fairly easy to find, but I'm struggling to find anywhere reliable regarding injury lists

    Fulham, and shock horror it's away from home. We've had 4 home games on TV this season compared to (what will be) 12 away from home
