just been sat looking at my screen for 30 seconds. can't think of anything to say.
*checks Guardian football*
Nope, me neither. Better than all the other threads though.
“Robin wants to compete for trophies and everything this year looks out of sight. It’s very disappointing for a player of his quality. I don’t think he’s enjoying the football United are playing. He’s a team player but he likes to play beautiful football and that isn’t the case at the moment. Man United need to refresh their squad. Some of their players have had fantastic careers but it’s time to move over and let some youngsters come through. Robin feels that, if this is happening, he will of course stay. But, if there’s no investment in new, young, great players from other clubs, then he will move.”
Bit more spice to it is that Rovers keeper hasn't conceded in the Cup this season, Lee McCulloch is going to have to be on top form to beat him
If my dog dies, I get a new dog but call it the same name as the old one, is it still the same dog?
Is it harder to score against joiners or plumbers?
Which do you feel is your strongest elbow? Left or right?
Maybe a decent subthread? Reason to post some youtube videos?
if anyone's up for that?

It was noticeable on Wednesday night, and I've spotted it before, how much Wilshere struggles playing with England's cloggers. He was the only player trying zippy short passes in the final third, and he was the only player who tried to start attacks through the middle. More than once (twice, I think) he tried to string together one of those pass and move attacks, like his goal against Norwich, that stumbled as soon as he tried to involve another England player. Or he tried to drive through the middle and was crowded out without any support from the bozos waiting for the ball to be played, slowly, out wide. The rest of the team couldn't keep up with him. That's right, he's TOO GOOD for England.
Probably should be dropped then
With midfielders, it is always the case that they can't play with another midfielder. Just as with defenders, the go-to issue is that neither has assumed a dominant role.
He'll be in his mid twenties before he knows it, so it really is time for Wilshere to settle down and figure out which midfield partner he is not going to work with.
make a sitcom out of it. Jack n Jord
But when he gets dropped Hodgson should make it clear that it's because he's TOO GOOD. Tom Cleverley should be sat next to him during this particular press conference.
which is strange.
he was the only player in the first half who looked dynamic, and the only reason nothing came of his play was because nobody else was on the same wavelength.
1979 - Sunderland
1980 - ???
1981 - Villa
I can't remember which one but it's a Trevor.
Though I might be getting that confused with a question about [REDACTED]
this appears to be the first and so far only video in the series.
."97 days to go" - why didn't they start when there was 100 days to go idiots.
first one ( the 100 days to go one) was Bergkamps goal in 1998
One suggested he was the closest thing to Gazza we've had since Gazza, and one made the claim that the Wembley crowd oohed and ahhed with his every touch when he came on the other day.
Am I going mental or is this the biggest overreaction to a performance in years?
after being absent for years. It feels similar to that
love the guy.
"10 jagers, 3 heart attacks"
at least we know he died doing something he loved.
And at a very competitive price of just €10."
I'll chip in to get the extra lines chiselled into the headstone.
Haven't been even slightly worried about them all season ... So maybe I *should* be worried?
with a bunch of Spurs who burst into open fits of laughter when comparing the respective benches. More innocent times
Spurs are having a decent season, even by recent standards, but without droopy chops then all the seismic shift bollocks has died a death.
Fully expecting to hear all the usual guff next week though; "better squad", "closed the gap" etc. Oh how we'll laugh, right up until they win the derby with a 45 yard Soldado netbuster
Craven "tell my wife hello" Cottage!
Does anybody actually like any England players anymore?
Say since 1980, who is the most liked England player?
Gazza obvious choice?
Then he spoke with the same diction as John Terry on camera and did a shampoo advert and it was all over for him.
Does anyone dislike Cahill or Jagielka?
Cahill and Two Jags are just two of the many who are a bit boring to have any strong opinion about one way or another
and I can't find anything to dislike about him.
He's practically a modern-day saint.
He talks only in cliches and a Yorkshire accent
Everyone loved Beckham once we'd got the effigy burning out of our systems, right?
and everything he's involved in having to be solely about him. Perhaps not his fault, but it sure is tiresome
if only he spoke like a cockney stand-up we'd all love him.
but if it makes you feel better I'm personally okay with Hart speaking with whatever diction he's comfortable with
is because of the way he talks.
It was a joke.
Everyone knows JT is at the heart of an Illuminati media bias conspiracy
Hoddle (quiet and non threatening)
Merson (makes funny noises)
Le Tissier (endearingly lazy)
Heskey (tends rabbits)
Hoddle (spiritual mentalist/awful 80s singer)
Le Tissier (gambling cheat bastard)
Heskey (really rubbish)
He has that Shane Warne factor of being a top athlete for ages despite having a chronic aversion to running.
Anyone who doesn't like Oxlade-Chamberlain has obviously not seen the episode of Ox TV where he made a Soufflé.
Or the one where he painted a watercolour of a Citroen
What's likeable about Peter Beardsley?
looking like a melted waxwork of Ringo Starr counts in his favour? Is that it?
(he played for England once)
who were never really England regulars.
Plus I just found out it's Ian Wright MBE to the likes you and me Royter. MBE!
Ashley Young has 30 England caps. Wes Brown has 23. If you're not in at least the 50s, I don't want to know.
Can't be arsed to list the strikers we had in the mid-late 90s, but there were loads and loads of them who would have walked into the teams that played Young and Brown.
just don't really regard him as an England playa.
Chris Woods seemed nice
Actually this is just a list of players who were good when I was twelve
Teddy and Macca are good shouts
and there's *a lot* of people that hate Paul Ince.
Terrible bloke, but *that* gif...
Love that story
when everyone loved Owen Hargreaves?
When he was the only one who gave a shit. Against Portugal he might as well have been the only England player on the pitch
What are all the little code box things though?
then a hand with an index finger pointing to the right. Then what appears to be a squirt of water.
and then gave up because i thought it wasn't working
someone had to tell him it was a term of endearment.
i thought the G was for giant
Top, top striker who kind of gets overshadowed by batigol, del piero, fat ronaldo, vieri etc etc
was Jonjo Shelvey after his first game against Liverpool for Swansea when he scored a goal and made a really bad mistake handing Liverpool a goal. I don't think I've ever heard such a sad voice
where they showed a quick compilation of Jonjo-looking-sad moments from the first half. Except it was all live, and he was just really, really sad.
punched the tv interviewer, and subsequently resigned:
And when Martin O'Neill showed his wrath and fury:
(Tbf, we were totally robbed.)
And some genuine fury,
The German Gazza
david moyes is tony blair
David Moyes writes open letter to fans saying sorry for everything.
forgets to seal the envelope, puts the wrong stamp on it and then drops it in a puddle.
then take out a full page ad with a picture of the Community Shield
and unsuccessfully fling it at the hole for 90 minutes
Start acting like the Man Utd manager ffs
apropos of nothing open letter? Or just a regular editorial feature on United's website or in their magazine that focuses on their poor form this time round?
Really pathetic if the former.
It's in the magazine. Titled 'Open Letter'
blame the FA or summat Dave!
The letter is ok. It's just nice to see them humbled
Moyes's letter in the club's 12th Man magazine read: "While I knew that this job would be a challenge when I took it on, the difficult season we have experienced was not something that I envisaged, which I am sure is the case as well for you supporters - and my players, staff and I are desperate to compensate for that.
"You are accustomed to seeing a successful Manchester United and the backing you have given the players and me throughout the season has been incredible.
"Away from home the travelling fans have remained the best in the country while at Old Trafford your unwavering faith has been noticeable and hugely welcomed.
"Supporting your team when they are winning is easy but much harder when things are not going as well, and the loyalty you have shown us has been magnificent.
"Everywhere we turn people outside the club have a lot to say about Manchester United, but we have all stuck together through some tough times this season and I firmly believe that, in the long run, we will all come out at the other end, stronger for the experiences.
"Everything we have been through will make us a better, stronger team and club in the future.
"Over the years you have seen great winning sides here and, in time, I have absolutely no doubt that we will see great winning sides here again.
"A big step towards that will be transforming Old Trafford back into the fortress it has long been renowned as, and we will do everything in our power to get the positive performances and results to do that, so that we can give you season ticket holders and all of our supporters something to shout about."

Berbatov (can't remember his first name)
would be my guess.
implanting Viduka in a list of naturally gifted footballers?
it's just less noticeable/interesting
i.e. Tevez & Aguero
They all play for Stoke
Hard-shitting work players?
