Not Drowned in Football.
If you say 'DiF' it sounds like 'DiS' with a lisp.
theres nothing "spiritual" about football other than the whole "team" thing.
but music is pretty gay right?
You're right, it is TOTALLY gay.
*sells cd collection on amazon marketplace, buys replica shirt*
homo comes under that category.
i really find it hard to choose, but there's more good music than good football so i'll go with the music
like for us, we find some of our favourite music by spending a lot of time finding obscure things.
How do you know the same can't be said for football?
Fucking hell I'm really drunk.
that's pretty damn indie, footbally speaking.
You're nothing without the 2005/06 Havant & Waterlooville retrospective DVD.
compared to finding a "banging" Peruvian psych record

Football can be so predictable, not so with music.
You can like any band, but not any team. If your team is doing shit, then you're trapped in a cycle of predictability.
See: Newcastle since 2004.
1-1 draw after extra time for me.
As long as Stuart Pearce can take the first penalty...wearing a Forest shirt of course.
but it's a harder choice if you say world cup football. I find the England team v v boring, I mean they play dull football as he world cup showed. Free kicks from Beckham weren't going to win it plus the team and its fans have a very smug superior attitude. If they left their mannequins behind in England they might have kept their minds on the game at hand. I supported them and will next time around but jeez.
The premiership bores me. So music wins.
Life-affirming (i think).
Both can be shit too.
winner on points - Music.
I realise this includes myself.
Even though you are a homophobe.
speak for yourself, it's a serious business and owns all the other football threads you lot have going.
Music Music Music Music.
See it's end to end stuff
But seriously though.
Messi against Sociedad earlier > Thom Yorke's solo LP
owning mika's album > owning a Bolton season ticket.
That's not even football is it.
Bolton = The Fratellis.
Dirty, dull and in a position they never should have risen to.
an affront to the senses, oblivious poser fans, and only where they are through outside influence and money.
completely loaded, predictable, popular and not without their charms, but desperate to stay releveant and interesting despite having the same ego-maniac at the helm for the last 100 years.
secretly the greatest exponent of everything, but never quite getting the mass adulation they deserve?
And even then its generally pretty monotonous.
I want people running the length of the pitch, doing backflip volleys and doing tricks like in that nike/adidas addvert ages ago.
try harder, football.
that only buy ten albums a year max.?
Perhaps they feel the same in reverse?
Nothing about them, theyre boring.
Music enthusiast > football enthusiast
They're just as passionate about football as we are about music. Sometimes moreso.
It's in the terms and conditions of using this forum. You have to change the font size to 2, then squint to see it, but its there.
bottom line is, music is creation for any goal you can think of, whereas football is just people doing the same thing better than someone else, to reach the same ends.

unlike your FACE AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! DEATH LAUGH!
I LOVE AER LINGUS!
A long, long, long, long time ago
Before the wind, before the snow
Lived a man, lived a man I know
Lived a freak of nature named Sir Psycho
Sir Psycho Sexy that is me
Sometimes I find I need to scream
He's a freak of nature
But we love him so
He's a freak of nature
But we let him go
Deep inside the garden of Eden
Standing there with my hard on bleedin'
Theres a devil in my dick and some demons in my semen
Good God no that would be treason
Believe me Eve she gave good reason
Botty looking too good not to be squeezin'
Creamy beaver hotter than a fever
I'm a givin' 'cause she's the reciever
I won't and I don't hang up until I please her
Makin' her feel like an over achiever
I take it away for a minute just to tease her
Then I give it back a little bit deeper
Sir Psycho Sir Psycho yea he's the man that I met 1 time
Sir Psycho Sir Psycho yea he's the man that left me blind
Sir Psycho Sir Psycho yea he's the man he's the man he's the man
I got stopped by a lady cop
In my automobile
She said get out and spead your legs
And then she tried to cop a feel
That cop she was all dressed in blue
Was she pretty? Boy I'm tellin' you
She stuck my butt with her big black stick
I said "what's up?" now suck my dick
Like a ram getting ready to jam the lamb
She whimpered just a little when she felt my hand
On her crotch so very warm
I could feel her getting wet through her uniform
Proppin' her up on the black and white
Unzipped and slipped "ooo that's tight"
I swatted her like no swat team can
Turned a cherry pie right into jam
Hello young woman that I love
Pretty punk rock mamma that I'm thinking of
Hold me naked if you will
In your arms in your legs in your pussy I'd kill
To be with you, to kiss with you, I do miss you
I love you
Lay me down ....
Descending waves of graceful pleasure
For your love there is no measure
Her curves they bend with subtle splendor
Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray the funk will make me freak
If I should die before I waked
Allow me Lord to rock out naked
Bored by the ordinary time to take a trip
Calling up a little girl with a bull whip
Lickety split go snap "snap"
Girl gettin' off all in my lap
The tallest tree the sweetest sap
Blowin' my ass right off the map
Ooo and it's nice out here
I think I'll stay for a while
I don't like the premiership. When I was little my brother supported Liverpool, he still does and I got into the games (in the days when there was just sky sports) anyway now I don't like league football, it bores me.
Anything that isn't Newcastle is boring at times. You need an emotional connection.
Should I commit suicide?
I was only saying. Also my vote goes to Music.
Where you listen to instruments and musicians getting the crap kicked out of them by David Villa.
what barbarians do?
Not that there isn't any fun to be had watching Sunderland go up and down, up and down, up and down. Wheeeee!
from television, film, art or books?
there may be a 'pantheon' of different sports, but there's a wealth of different forms of entertainment. I think your argument is flawed on that basis.
but that wasn't your argument.
no record has ever made me throw a traffic cone over a wall and lead to my flatmates avoiding me for 45 minutes
changed my entire outlook on life.
you're shit at semi-proverbs
football + music = three lions.
music + football = charity kickaround with rod stewart and ant and dec
three lions > charity football game
so maths says FOOTBALL
You wouldnt like football if you live in a city where theres a possibility that you'll be stabbed for wearing a green/blue shirt.
but mainly because a charity kickaround with rod the mod sounds much better than the thought of three lions.
however football violence is not cool
And ive not even been.
What grants me the permission to make judgements about places ive never visited?
My massive ego, that's what.
i'm going to have sex with you too.
i'm going to have sex with you.
i'll even let you score against me at evo
i thought we had something.
robyn won't mind!
i'll bring a candleabre.
i maintain that eto'o was offside and that manuel almunia will pay for his sins in hades.
as my flatmates and my local's landlord can confirm.
no one saw that
MOTD ON NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
deportivo v valencia.
1-1 if you're interested.
Silva just scored.
and you just wouldn't have any access to it? Cause I couldn't say no football if it would hurt Kaka.
And what about football manager? Are you banned from that also?
Could we work out some kind of deal do you think? Where, say, I get to keep footballer and Kaka, but then only get, say, music from one particular decade? Would that work okay?
but football has the almost unique ability (with other sports obviously) to send people from depressed to ecstatic instantly.
As in shit Rovers aren't in the play-offs = depressed
to FUCK ME WE ARE!!! Please let me kiss you fat stranger man
