  1. Done. Best of luck to your other half.

    I think it means you believe you're buying quality, but it soon transpires that you haven't. You end up with a cat rather than a pig. I think it works in this case, although normally the villain of the piece is the person who's sold you the cat, not the cat itself. Probably overthinking it now.
  3. The Film Thread

    It's. Just. "Boris".
  4. The Tim Sherwood Thread

    To begin with it was all laughs and good intentions about turning around a terrible situation. But disorder soon set in, disharmony and anger followed, resulting in tears before bedtime and a sudden demise. Essentially, Sherwood's reign at Villa was the managerial equivalent of "Lord of the Flies".
  5. Things you often Wonder

    I think, with age, I've become more relaxed regarding being nude in public, getting changed etc. But there will always be part of me that will empathise with Bean.
  6. Ratings & Reactions: Wigan v Villa

    Nice one BOF. I'd add Green as another candidate (hopefully).

    Screw Blockbusters, screw Bob Holness and screw your gold run.

  9. Jack Grealish

    @mikeyp102 Not sure if it's at that point yet, but I agree looking at how the team is set up, it's hard to find an obvious starting place for him. In all honesty I've not managed to watch a great deal lately (hence why I rarely comment on performances). But from the sounds of it, the left side is between Green and Amavi, I don't see him replacing anyone in centre midfield. Maybe for now he'll be deployed as an impact sub, drawing fouls against tired legs when we need it. I think Bruce isn't done with Jack just yet.

    I had a feeling that either you or Ruge might bring that up. I remember being quite surprised when I first heard about Chuck's "interests". "C'est la vie", say the old folks, it goes to show you never can tell.

    Hearing that Chuck Berry has gone, aged 90.

    Forest with a late equaliser. All finished 2-2.

  14. Irreverentad's Relationship Advice Thread

    Sorry to hear that @Ginko Definitely the right move in drawing a line under it, it's good that you see it that way. I've been in the same position with a girl from work and tried to win her round, it just made it worse. Just be pleasant around her, keep it friendly, but make sure you allow yourself space from her. Onwards and upwards.
