  1. The ISIS threat to Europe

    Remember to change your facebook profile pic to a flag of the country as well.
  2. Media and punditry

    Are the BBC on some crusade to shoehorn female commentators into every sport?
  3. Villatalk deadpool 2017

    I always get Jerry Lewis and Jerry Lee Lewis mixed up! Which one married his 13yo cousin?
  4. The ISIS threat to Europe

    Don't worry, we know how to cope now - light a few tea lights and carry on as normal and wait for it to happen again.
  5. What you eatin' there then?

    I've always wondered how much money these places make. They seem to be a goldmine. Our group spent £160 in a hour and a half or so. The Soho Tavern is constantly busy and does takeaway as well. A few of us in the crew have jokingly thought about starting one up. You can buy leaseholds of pubs in the black country for £30k - £50k and then convert it into a desi pub. If 5 of us put £20k in each that should pay for the leasehold and full refurb and relaunch.
  6. Things you often Wonder

    I've been 'online' about 20 years. I first used the internet in about 1998, in my first office job. It was a place of awe and wonder. I think the first site I used was Autotrader as I was looking for my first car! The online world was a much friendlier place back then in my opinion. Mainly because of the lack of social media and as a result you only really interacted with people you had common interests with on forums/message boards. These people would often become quite close online friends that you could chat to on MSN Messenger/AIM/ICQ/Yahoo for hours every night - I know I did. The amount of hatred spewed online now is staggering. Anyone famous who has a Instagram page or Twitter page is usually subjected to torrents of abuse at some point. This forum is a calm oasis in the rough waters of the online world and I'm grateful for it. Other forums I have been one, I had one person say they would kill me and another person who wished I would die of cancer. Charming!

  10. Arsenal

    Like night follows day, as soon as Arsenal lose, Wenger starts blaming the officials.
  11. The Film Thread

    The Sweeney Passed a couple of hours. 5/10
  12. Anyone Watching A Good Tv Show?

    It was the right length for a show as well. 4 seasons IIRC. Not keen on shows that outstay their welcome.
  13. Steve Bruce

    Maybe i'm a bit more forgiving but I don't think constantly changing the manager/coaching staff/players is conducive to success on the field. History has proven that. I do agree, the last 40 games have not been good enough but i'm perhaps an optimist when I think that yesterday may be the turning point. I'm not suggesting we stick with him forever but 4 games into this season is a little bit too early, after Bruce's first pre-season. We've got the players and we've the manager with the record of promotion so i'm clinging on to that at the moment. He does have to deliver this season though.
  14. Steve Bruce

    A philosophy that has won 4 promotions before? Lets hope this result is a springboard for the season. I'm happy to have Bruce in charge if we can replicate performances like that for the majority of the remainder of the season.
  15. General Chat

    Ha, I don't go out anywhere near as much as I used to! Saturday will be my first all dayer in a while. But yes, I will be moaning about that next Sunday!
