  1. Slightly unrealistic - only becuase Cloughie didn't mention his goalscoring record once !!
  2. Shame on you, overlooking your short brethren !
  3. Have you been there before - or could answering that question compromise national security?
  4. Kimberley gets my vote, as she's got great curves, and probably bangs like a privy door in a hurricane. Nadine sounds like Ian Paisley. Cheryl's done well recently, but as Simon Amstel puts it, eveyone's forgotten what a violent thug she is. Plus, she's probably caught a dose from Cashley. Poor old Nicola. Let's face it, she's nobody's favourite. Sarah would normally get my vote, until I thought that in 5yrs time she'll look like Michelle Collins !!
  5. Given Wenger's obsession with fitness, and that Arshavin hasn't kicked a ball in anger since November 2008, it'll probably be a couple of weeks until he plays a full 90mins. That would make it the Fulham game, and there's only 11 premiership games to go to make up the 7 point game, and they've got Man U, Liverpool and Chelsea to play. Also they've got Boro and Stoke towards the end of the season, and that's the time that bottom teams start to pick up points. I think it's a lot for one little Russian to accomplish.
  6. Yes, very much so. But rather than suffering from blind patriotism, I'm acutely aware that the Brits at various times, have pretty much been a bunch of words removed to most nations.
  7. Interesting. If you could answer the following questions, I'd be most grateful: 1) How much is the unlocking, or can you do it over the interntet? 2) Do all the features that are available on O2 work on Orange? The O2 people say it won't but they would say that. Given that under "Settings/Carrier" you can pick the network (mine worked on Vodafone in South Africa, and Vodafone, T-Mobile, Orange and 3 all appear to be available in the UK), I suspect they're telling porkies. I've got an old 8GB 2G iPhone I want to sell, and it would be easier if it's available to all networks. Its free done at your own risk, only bad thing that can happen is you lose contacts, rarely will it turn it into a brick if you do it properly using QuickPwn etc. Mine just picks up my Orange sim and works fine, i have the same as the one you wanting to sell so couldn't comment on 3G but everything else works fine on mine. Txts, calls voicemail. You dont get id voicemail thats just for O2 other than that its fine. The 1st Gen iPhone has been able to be unlocked for a year or more now, the 3G one has onnly been hacked recently. Basically you download alittle program and put it DRC more i think it is and install the software on it. It will also be jailbroken, meaning you can play Playstation,NES,SNES emulators etc on there. Remember the iphone is basically a computer running Mac OS X, so needs to be hacked differently than a normal phone. Cheers fella - much appreciated.

  9. 1) Prior to becomming a professional footballer, James Milner was the boy in the Hovis adverts. He also had a tough childhood. He had to get up out of the shoebox that he lived in at twelve o'clock at night, and LICK the road clean with his tongues. For breakfast he had half a handful of freezing cold gravel, worked twenty-four hours a day at the mill for fourpence every six years, and when he got home, his Dad would slice him in two with a bread knife. 2) A single piece of coal can sustain James Milner for up to a fortnight....and that includes him doing lots of running about, and shit 3) In an early episode of "Reeves and Mortimer", a man asks Vic and Bob "Got any booze f' baby?" That baby was James Milner. 4) When not turning out for Villa, James likes to return to his native 1940's, don a flat cap and retire to the safety of the bomb shelter at the end of his garden 5) It's grim oop north and James Milner likes it that way. 6) James Milner can out-pace a whippet over 50 yards (none of that metric nonsense, neither !) 7) James Milner is on the right: 8 ) Adapted for a London location, Charles Dickens' "Oliver Twist" was based on the early life of James Milner. James is very proud of this, but doesn't like the musical adaptation as singing and prancing about is stricly for ponces. 9) James Milner doesn't like long trousers. 10) There is a clause in James Milner's contract that, apart from 90mins on match-days, allows him to smoke woodbines at all other times.
  10. Apologies if this has been covered before. Just thought of this (well, credit partly goes to Ianrobbo actually), what do people think of some sort of reward scheme for season ticket holders, coming in the form of a discount for long-standing or intensive support? For instance: 1) You could have a sliding scale of discounts, say 50% if you've had a season ticket constantly for 20+ years, less if your membership has been on and off over a period etc 2) Other factors, such as how many other tickets you've bought, how much you watch Villa away etc, could be applied. 3) Discount is personal to the fan, and not related to the seat, so you couldn't have a ticket handed down over generations. Come to think of it, you probably wouldn't need to. Obviously corporate tickets would be excluded.
  11. Timmy Tourette's [**** off] He plays in our nets [**** off] I'd like a 5-0 Everton victory, comprising a Worf hat-trick, and a Phil Neville Brace. Topped off with "Aaaaaaaaaaaaaiiiiiiiiiiiiirm" Steven Gerard getting a red card, and Benitez being spotted with paella down his front.
  12. SDPH's Beer Review No. ! Bud - Muck Bush - Muck Michelob - Muck half of Corona - Not half bad a quarter of Tsingtao - Odd Brahma - Muck Labatt's - Muck Bass - Not Bad Beck's - OK Stella - OK Boddington's - Not bad Hoegaarden - Mmmm, special King Cobra - Not bad Leffe - Mmmmm, double special (Radiuse in particular) Lowenbrau - Tar tastes better Rolling Rock - Muck Skol - Double Muck (council lager) Spaten - ?? St. Pauli Girl - Dunno Tennent's - Muck
  13. Oh, and the biggest brewer of beer in the world isn't American. It's South African Breweries (SAB), who pretty much are the biggest player and have the market by the short and curlies.
  14. A combination of factors: * Prohibition basically killed American alcohol tastes for close to 50 years... it took decades for whisk[e]y and the other dark spirits to recover (since bathtub gin (which eventually created the demand for vodka) was a lot safer than moonshine). On the wine side, it allowed Gallo to become dominant. And it killed most of the breweries that were flourishing beforehand. This allowed the American adjunct/macro lager to become the dominant style as opposed to more authentic versions of Pilsners etc. * Schlitz, the dominant beer after Prohibition, had a couple of years of disastrous marketing (I'm pretty sure that (I can hear the Who fans reading this groaning...) was after that)... and let's face it, in the cheap lager category, it's generally more about marketing than substance. But probably most importantly: * Bud took quality control its apex, to the extent that a Bud brewed in New Hampshire was identical to a Bud brewed in California. Going to a regional brewery model while Miller, Schlitz, Pabst, etc. stuck to massive breweries in the middle of the USA helped. Distribution muscle also helped... AB has religiously tried to keep their market share at 50%, which allows their local distributors (who are provided with generous inducements to not carry anything but AB-approved product) to strongarm retailers into giving them the premium slots. I managed a package store (Massachusetts-ese for a liquor store) years ago, and about once a year or so, the local AB distributor's marketing team would come in and (with the approval of the owner, obviously) arrange the entire beer department according to the plan from St. Louis. In return for this, the store got a few bucks knocked off the price of every case. I think the reason most US drinks can't compete with everyone else is that with the following exceptions, they all taste like piss. Miller - the only US beer I can tolerate. Bud/Coors all taste like fizzy water that've had a drop of beer put into them. Flavourless wee-wee. If you like beer, come to England, or go to Belgium. End of. No spirits make the exceptions list. Jack Daniels and the inventor of Southern Comfort ought to be ashamed of themselves. For goodness sake, even the Japanese can make a good malt these days. So really, wine is the only alcoholic tipple that I'd consider drinking from the US. On the plus side - the US' contribution to the world of cocktails is pretty much unsurpassed.
  15. I used to be a Nokia fan, never touched any of those Samsung or Motorolla things. I'm now on my 2nd iPhone - a 3G one. No, there's not a fat lot of difference between the previous model, but it all comes down to what you want a phone for. I used to carry around my own mobile, an electronic diary and an iPod. Now I don't have to - as it's all in one. There are a few pro's and cons though. Pro's: 1) The internet feature is brilliant - 3G is sometimes nearly as quick as WiFi. 2) iPod is great 3) Can now use normal headphones as the jack plug will fit 4) You can flog your old 2G one for about £200 on ebay Cons: 1) Got to buy a new dock for it as its a different shape to the 2G one and it doesn't come with one. 2) You need to buy a good case / screen protector to keep it in any kind of decent condition. 3) Sometimes the touch screen doesn't respond that quickly - but most of the time its OK 4) The 3G signal coverage is still a bit patchy.
  16. Just to be absolutely clear, "stealing" the trophy doesn't count as winning it. And "No".
  17. Just read that to sprog No 1 before his bedtime. He thinks you're a bit sad !
  18. What is nice is that all the Villa transfer talk is of us adding to our squad, whereas for other clubs (e.g. Les Arse), there's talk of swopsies going on.
  19. A big budget version of "Sink the Bismarck" please.
  20. Hmmm interesting. The Smiths really weren't my cup of tea, but I'm a bit of a How Soon is Now fan. The Cure. There's so many reasons to laugh at their fans; those floppy haired gaylords appearing out of the woodwork everytime the DJ plays "Lovecats" etc. But in fairness, they were the first band I saw live and played a 1.5 hour encore of requests. Top drawer and mucho VFM. As for Morrissey, I used to hate him, but tip my hat to the fella following his comments about Madonna adopting that Malawian baby: "I'm surprised she hasn't had him made into a coat, worn it for 5 minutes, then thrown it away." ****' full respect Mozza.
