The look on this steward's face (far left):
Understandable you didn't recognise him though, been a while since he's been seen.
Both fan and steward seem to be going "Weeeeeeey!". It's nice that they can share the good times.
And these lads; http://ballsoutinpublic.files.wordpress.com/2012/03/aoiuqzvciam4psg-large.jpg
“Young players categorise themselves these days on how good their toilet bag looks or on what design and make it is. They see someone with a £1,500 toilet bag and think he must be a good player.
“There are a lot counterfeit and copied toilet bags out there. It’s the same with the players. Some of them look the part but the foundations aren’t there. The players have to take some responsibility for that because to get better at something you need to practise your craft – and I don’t think there’s enough of that in the modern game, either collectively or individually.”
He's genuinely terrifying looking in the flesh
any time something like this happens.
As if the tubby, drowsing ring of steel that encloses most pitches is somehow impenetrable unless someone's cracked a special code or something.
all media outlets must remain po-faced about this sort of thing.
when that fella ran on at upton park and took a free kick last year
"Nobody wants to see this, terrible shame..."
because 70s streakers are still allowed to be hilarious.
Yes we clearly do so position the camera on them pronto.
It was "pranksters". Everyone stop enjoying it.
What's the point where you would exclude a player from taking part for being a dick with late tackles? We've got a guy who does it far too often but is always really apologetic - "I'm just really slow and was only going for the ball" etc. He's massive though, I think he might end up injuring someone.
Potential for awkwardness if I just remove him. I'm going to have to deal with an awkward social situation aren't I. Fuck.
give him a warning: don't go for big tackles you think you won't make - one/two/three more and we'll have to stop inviting you as the lads are worried about injuries
happening in a DiS match once.
Something that ends up with his knees on the back of his legs.
you've played with in the past. Bonus points for outing DiSers as shithouses.
seen some nasty injuries at 5-a-side though. Proper nasty.
their captain got sent off for a knee high horror lunge, then shouted on to the pitch offering £50 for someone to break the ref's legs
Where do you play?
that game was against Heeley old boys. truly awful pricks, most other teams in our league are fine though
I play at Goals in Norfolk Park, seriously low stakes. Not that you'd know from some of the bellends who rock up yelling about "wanting it more" and "getting fucking stuck in". It's division 6 on a thursday night you fucking moron, calm down.
I'm looking to play more. once a week makes it pretty hard to last 90 minutes given i don't do much exercise outside of it
if you wanna play 6-a-side on a wed. we're sometimes short.
I stopped playing Goals at Norfolk Park, and Pitz, because it was just getting fucking stupid.
If you wanna play 6-a-side in Sheffield in a pretty chill league then this is good on a weds:
Stick your name down on the reserve list for when a team drops out. it's cheap too (like £3-£4 per person for a 50min game).
Pitz is a battleground. Last time I was there I saw a guy being restrained from fighting a ten year old boy on the other team. So many things wrong there.
that kind of shit is just ridiculous, and you stand there feeling pretty helpless.
My mate is a self-employed plasterer and had to move home to his mum and dads because some meathead swung him into the boards at Pitz and broke his arm, for no reason.
One of my team got his nose broken by a "supporter" of the team we were playing, who ran on and headbutted our guy, who incidentally was a complete bystander in a bit of pushing and shoving. His vision is still impaired 5 years later.
Another one where they brought a massive dog and the supporters and subs were smoking joints by the side of the pitch. That was pretty nasty too by the end.
my local u-18 club travelled to this really rough (rough as in anti-social rough) place for a game. late in the match i went in with a ridiculously pointless late tackle. we had to beat a hasty retreat after the final whistle and the bus got stoned on the way out. i'm not sure if it was cos of the tackle or not. let's just say for the purpose of the sub-thread that it was
Seen some pretty awful stuff.
Baseball bats chasing us out of the car park, one guy narrowly escapes a serious head injury.
League threw them out, and I think a couple got convicted for GBH. So ridiculous for what was essentially a fucking kickabout.
Some of the small villages used to treat the opportunity to kick the university team up in the air as some sort of annual celebration and everyone would turn up pitchside to cheer them on. Plus the general standard of refereeing meant it was physically impossible to get sent off.
One of my team-mates got punched in the back of the neck and head right in front of the referee once = yellow card and a warning not to do it again.
Only time I've ever been scared on a football pitch was when some twat pulled up next to the pitch in his BMW halfway through the first half and demanded to be sent on. He was clearly coked up to the eyeballs and just ran round trying to kick lumps out of everyone until even his own team-mates wouldn't go near him. Bet he was fun to play with every week.
in one game, the other team got 2 players sent off/straight red for punching my mate (same guy both times lol) and another 2 players sent off for two bookings over the course of the game for consistently violent behaviour. We still lost haha (tbf we just didn't want to play and were just standing around really) then the team started on the ref/ we stopped him from getting beaten up after the game and they all started on us so we had to leave pretty sharpish. This was on canvey island (bomb the shithole please)
most of the time players dont get booked for punching and stuff though, think it's because refs know that sort of thing happens when you send someone off.
the fact they're winning all the time means we hear much, much less from Mourinho. It's really nice and I'm enjoying it, cheers.
literally looks like hell on earth
now that 'rough' has been banned?
like the Wild West mixed with GTA http://goo.gl/maps/rqUTk
cool mountain/sea interface
NONE. It's just dust. Might as well live on the moon.
Apparently everyone gets cancer too cos it's there's copper mine and power plant there and the pollution is terrible.
but they're all puny and pointless
This being finished, all the dusk champaign
Trembled so violently, that of that terror
The recollection bathes me still with sweat.
The land of tears gave forth a blast of wind,
And fulminated a vermilion light,
Which overmastered in me every sense,
There were hardly any plants, man.
"But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the future Arsenal forwards, the idolaters and all liars - their place will be in the fiery lake of burning sulfur (with no plants). This is the second death."
maybe you could live in a world only very sparsely populated with pygmy plants, but let me tell you something; i probably wouldnt.
In San Pedro called Valle de la Luna (Moon Valley, basically) which is amazing:
as in over 300 km away
In terms of landscape. All much of a muchness.
"London is really nearby, and the whole English region is more or less the same. All much of a muchness."
"Si, Mario, it's basically like London, just a LITTLE further north".
Twice he's been done with that schtick.
At least at City he was working with some decent players/coaches.
that mysteriously lead nowhere
Which is where Cobreloa (Sanchez's first club) are based.
So dry, all the wealth's in Copper, and there is so little to do, aside from the few overpriced air-conditioned Americanised malls that exist there.
It's not particularly poor though, despite the desolate scenary. Everyone's just there for the mining, really.
Would be pretty hard playing football there on a regular basis, I'd go insane there, like.
getting all needlessly defensive seeing Nathaniel Clyne staking a convincing claim for the England right back slot.
assumed he was a full #manmountain
If Kyle Walker and Glen Johnson were getting picked over me for five years I'd probably develop a bit of a complex over it too tbh.
Papa bouba diop used to go by 'the wardrobe' at Fulham, for his mix of bulk and mobility
when you think about it.
This does not seem right.
after a hard day's work.
