    Saw The Stranglers last night who were supported by The Ruts. Both were banging!! The Stranglers player a Classic Setwhile The Ruts played old and new. It's the 6th time I've seen the Men in Black and it by far the best. Old men 50+ going loopy in the crowd,oh what fun!
  2. But surely, it's the same paper thin squad that improved under a different manager when Jose left??
  3. Maybe a reporter should ask Jose "Why is it that certain players or the team as a whole, seem to be playing for Conte but weren't willing to play for you last season?"

    How the heck has Ozzy still got his Brum accent, albeit, a bit slurred? Great band, great tracks, great lead singers over the years too.
  5. Frank Lampard: Legend.

    I think the best praise will be from former opponents. Nuff said.
  6. Taking The Pee Out Of Liverpool (For Khobar)

    The Anfield crowd are as a bad as the French crowd watching their Rugby team in the 6 Nations. Get on top of them and the go very, very quiet.

    Trouble is, they usually turn up and put in a shift against us.

    Went to see Avenged Sevenfold, Disturbed and In Flames at the London O2 last night. Av 7 were ok, very slick, but a bit too slick. I like an edge to bands when they are live, I don't want it too choreographed as to who goes where on stage etc. Disturbed were bloody awesome and should have been top billing not 2nd. They really know how to work a crowd. In Flames were tight as a ducks arse and got the crowd warmed up nicely. The vocals for all 3 were excellent, but the crowd?? The crowd were vocal, knew the songs and tried the odd circle mayhem. But no jumping lunacy or surges. I've seen more at a Stranglers gig, where the average age of the crowd are about 65. And rucksacks!! Who takes a bloody rucksack to an indoor gig?? Next, you'll see mothers with prams!! Next up, The Stranglers in Cambridge ( with crowd jumping and surges ).

    More to the point and more importantly, Ozzy Osbourne used it for an intro for one of his tours. Bark at the Moon I hting?

    Got myself a ticket to see The Stranglers again at Cambridge next year performing their 'Classic Collection'. At the front for that one.

    Think it's going to be a grower. Can't wait to see them again. Saw them at Hammersmith for their 'Justice' and 'Black' album tours. On the plus side, I managed to get a ticket to see Iron Maiden in Nottingham. Haven't seen them since the Powerslave tour in Ipswich.

    Ah, denim cut-off with patches sewn on, bullet belt ( which is nowhere near big enough now ) dandruff flying about. And denim jeans that faded with time and grime. Great days.
  13. Media / Press

    I think that Utd's treatment of Van Gaal was shocking. For months, the vultures were circling with regards to Jose joining and yet the Utd board said nothing. If it had been us, Jeez!!! The press got what they wanted, Jose at a BIG club, the only club in England worth managing. HA! Watch the wheels fall off in 2 years time.

    The Manics are the one band that blew me away. I saw them in Cambridge a few years back and boy, the energy! Awesome live act. I've tried to educate my kids on Elvis and the 90's Brit Pop, but to no avail. Though I have got 2 of them into Heavy Metal, albeit, slowly. Still can't get them to like Lamb of God, but give it time. One band that I have discovered lately are these guys; Love the sound and feel of this album. You Tube can be a wonderful thing sometimes.

    Most people cherish the music of their teens, no matter what decade it was. I can still hear me old man telling me, "Call this music, in my day..............." He loved Elvis, skiffle, rock 'n' roll etc, so I imagine that his parents were telling him the same thing. But I also loved, loved the 90's Britpop. Some truly great music,bands and fashion. Really miss those days and I was 30 back then. True, it does feel like the Victorian era again, with the haves and have nots, the divide is greater than ever. Whether the youth of today take an interest in politics is hard to say. I know that my son (just finishing his 2nd year in 6th Form) studied Russia and Germany for 2 years and has made him a socialist at heart. We've had some interesting conversations! As for the quality music today??? Maybe that's down to the stations choice of music? Radio 6 is a must though. The music of the mid 70's were full of anger and resentment (The Clash, Stranglers, Billy Bragg to name but 3) where as now, there's just apathy.
