  1. Things that piss you off that shouldn't

    You can always try and get even with him later.
  2. Things that piss you off that shouldn't

    I could be wrong, but I think @Amsterdam_Neil_D 's odd comment is in reference to 7 being an odd number. Regarding the painting @Seat68 posted, not sure. But the bloke holding the leather jacket looks like someone I haven't heard of.

    An unsubtle attempt to resurrect the confessions thread there

    Belated happy birthday for yesterday mate. It'll be no consolation for you, but I'm fast approaching 34 and I can say for certain my life is not how I envisaged it.
  5. Championship Fixtures 17/18

    You may want to re-read those two fixtures.

    Best for all concerned that he goes. I like him but don't have time for players who don't want to be here. A few lovely goals and some good performances, generally I think they were from off the bench. Never really established his best position, for various reasons. Clearly he doesn't fancy the championship. But the lack of stability at the club has played it's part. It's not helped that in the relatively short time he was actually part of the squad (around 18 months I think?) he was onto his fourth full time manager, not forgetting the stints of K-Mac and Eric Black. Obviously he wasn't the only one who had to deal with that turbulence. But I can understand why that and other factors would leave him a bit disenchanted. In short, I wish well but won't miss him greatly. Well, maybe his boy-next-door smile.
  9. What Album Are You Listening To Right Now?

    My top three Beatles albums 1. Rubber Soul 2. Abbey Road 3. Revolver I also think the Help! album is very undervalued. Would probably have that along with maybe the magical mystery tour to complete my top five.

    Yeah, I end up doing that but I'm always slightly irked by having to do so. Soapy towel.

    Getting out of the shower and discovering I haven't washed away the soap from under my arms.

    Pretty sure Emu's been living with Orville for a while now.
  13. General Election 2017

    Been to the polling station this morning. I normally don't vote, as I find myself sounding exactly like the moderator in this sketch.
  14. Players who you just don't like

    I remind myself of the quiet, dignified humility of someone like Kante to try and temper the excessive narcissism found amongst other top professionals.
