    Things that piss you off that shouldn't

    I did think it was odd the drop the name of the brand like that, I assumed they had patented it.

    "If you can fix your bike then you can fix a type 2 destroyer or a Samsung radar system"... I'm not convinced tbh.
  3. I was thinking the same. Millionaire premier league footballer in a Magaluf chav bar. Was never likely to end well.

    John Terry

    That seems very odd, players have a contract until the end of June but they also have to be paid for July even though they are not under contract or providing any services to the club.

  6. From what I've seen of Russia they seem to be incredibly clinical in front of goal.

    Didn't someone on here get rid of his ex-housemates mattress recently? Possibly dried out by now with this warm weather.

    Time for a takeover

    The problem with the talk of next owner must run us sustainably is that like Tony, the new owner will have to deal with years of neglect and players being massively overpaid with several years to run on their deals. Tony could sell the club for £1 tomorrow and even the most savvy owner will have a massive challenge to balance the books and avoid going backwards.
  9. The Salah love-in was a disgrace during that game. I didn't understand one of the many, many lines "its such a shame for Salah after the season he has had with Liverpool". What is such a shame? I honestly don't understand what that means at all.

    I thought this, find someone to report them to. I’ll give them another 24 hours and see what comes of it.

    Things that piss you off that shouldn't

    Regular readers will know that early May a car went into the back of mine on the motorway. The car was a rental and the rental company referred the repair and resolution to third part company to manage. 6 weeks later they are still pissing about. Initially a car repair centre asked me for pictures etc so they could prepare a quote for the fix. I understand they submitted the repair quote and it was approved. I'd be contacted once they had the parts (bumper) and repair would happen. It then took a twist as they put that on hold and asked an independent engineer to check the car over. He came, took some pictures and then left. What I suspect is happening is that they think that the damage might not of happened in the accident (it did). Anyway, 6 weeks on and I'm still waiting. I called twice last week and again yesterday. They just say there are enquiries ongoing and that I need to wait. I'm rapidly getting furious with all of this. Yesterday I asked to speak to a manager but there wasn't one free so I sent them a strongly worded complaint email... still nothing. What can I do? Can I bill them for the stress and anxiety they are causing on top of everything else? Should I appoint a solicitor to go after them?

    The Video Assistant Referee (VAR)

    I agree there was a small grey area and the referee chose to let the game go. In related news have the linesmen gone back to flagging for marginal offsides? It seemed like they were letting them go only for a couple of days now gone back to normal business.
  13. I think its fair to say that the premier league is more competitive than the Bundesliga, especially as a Bayern player.

    The Video Assistant Referee (VAR)

    The ref did the gesture after the second one to suggest Kane had dived... so not sure why he wasn't booked.
