  1. Unfortunately there are idiots everywhere. These CRS obviously won't be shortlisted for a nobel prize.
  2. You really have to ask the doubters who they would really prefer to have in charge. Klopp could only scavenge a draw from the bins of WHL, whoever loses in Manchester today will be bleating the same fickle nonsense as JM's critics. Maybe they would prefer to have Real's manager? now that would be Bartonesque
  3. Sad to see anything but outright condemnation of this incident. Anybody who saw the footage can plainly see the black guy getting pushed, physically, repeatedly off the train which was not crowded by London or Parisien standards. The fellow did not incite the yobs to abuse him (he speaks no English). Sure, he didn't get a beating on the platform, but that doesn't make it normal or acceptable. Anyone who suggests he is somehow to blame for this is as bad as those singing that pathetic song of theirs.
  4. Always loved yellow for the away, but it has to be banana & not lemon. I'm choosy when it comes to fruit!
  5. Seeing as I'm going to have to buy a beer for every single one of Saturdays revellers, it looks my account's going to be crippled. I wish a great party to all !!
  6. Looks like that fat, sweaty, irritating bloke with the stupid beardy thing has taken control of the darts team. The guv'nor really ought to be more choosy about the riff-raff he lets in.
  7. Please, not tubby Benitez...
  8. They don't make 'em like that any more. That was a nice little bit at the end, I sense a ressurection coming.
  9. Barry White.
  10. Wrong Duffo, the totally neutral Raffa I just blew my only chance at the title Benitez, is quoted as saying that the difference between these two clubs is the "gulf" in spending - the old spendthrift even managed to mention Chelsea!. Some people just don't know when to recognise that they are on the roll of their life. Having said that, the Scouse have enjoyed remarkable success this season, all the more reason to "lip-up fatty".
  11. I saw SMV (Stanley, Marcus & Victor) last night, three very happy slappers (definitely for you Grahame). Stanley Clarke seems to have some kind of pick-up truck man thing going & proved my suspicions by nearly physically pulling a double bass in half, the student crowd loved it. Marcus Miller seems to be getting more & more humble with age (he's big on his religion thing) though it didn't seem to slow him down in the thick of the action when the boys weres howing each other just what they could do - a bit of a biggest willy competition, but who cares when the music is that exciting. Victor Wooten, what a musician. That man can play the whole orchestra on his bass, he (like Miller & Clarke) just walked into each piece & stayed until he was pushed out! & no, I'm not talking about ego driven solos here. The guys were playing fabulous music& having a real craic at the same time - isn't that what it's all about?. There's just a few more dates left in Europe - Paris 27 oct - go there if you can. It's the best gig I've been to in years.
  12. I think the point you missed about the quote you used was that the term 'Indie' is misused. When this term first appeared, it described a musical movement opposed to (or without access) to, the major record companies. Like a lot of the so called 'rediscovered' fads, it's all about lazy, unimaginative image ripping & nothing to do with taking on the fat cat's - more like shamelessly sleeping with the enemy. Where I live now there is a strong trend for the 'Techno' - boom da, boom da, boom da - music. You get these pimply chavs with their weekend, fake mohican style spiked hair (Ã la Beckham circa 1998). Salon cut if you please. To top it off, they are now wearing rotten fakes of Boy & Seditionaries, tartan, bondage gear, bum flaps... Not a solvent filled crisp bag in sight though & not a hint of even the most naive political badge or tee shirt. In a way it reminds me of the X-Ray Specs song 'germ free adolescents'. It would be a lot funnier if they took to wearing fake army medals topped off with S.A.S. emblem tattoo's. The only 'indie' thing about that would be indie casualty ward.
  13. Do any of you know a London ska/punk band called Deadlines? They are coming my waysoon and I would be interested in your comments.
  14. Maybe it's a drink for transvestite German teeny-rockers.
  15. Anyone seen Alex Han ? he's coming to Europe this summer with Marcus Miller. The kid looks like a diamond. I'm taking the trip to Marseille & possibly Montreux to check it.
