  1. West Ham 2 Chelsea 1

    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
  2. Beer Prices

    Went to a match at Carrow road in the home end with a Norwich mate. all the taps were keg - poor show when you consider that East Anglia is considered the real ale heartland of Britain. But right at the end there was a polypin of Wherry. They had to open it especially for us & we only had a couple of pints each. I'm guessing the rest was simply wasted, so it was probably more PR than a genuine retailing decision. I imagine that the thought of unfinished casks would frighten the life out of - or at the very least completely baffle the wallies that work the SB bars
  3. Ghost chllis

    When I mentioned destroying my lower bowel, I meant to do it with ingested food I.e from the top downwards. Not the opposite.
  4. Ghost chllis

    I'm thinking about destroying my lower bowel this weekend. Anyone know where to buy them in West London? preferably Acton, Ealing, Chiswick area. Cheers.
  5. Media / Press

    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.
  6. PSG Away

    There is also the Bombardier opposite the Panthéon. They sometimes have Fullers in stock for those of us from West London - fish & chips too!
  7. New Kits

    Always loved yellow for the away, but it has to be banana & not lemon. I'm choosy when it comes to fruit!
  8. The Earl Of Cadogan

    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 !!
  9. The Earl Of Cadogan

    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.
  10. The Earl Of Cadogan

    Please, not tubby Benitez...
  11. Musical Tastes

    They don't make 'em like that any more. That was a nice little bit at the end, I sense a ressurection coming.
  12. Musical Tastes

    Barry White.
  13. The Earl Of Cadogan

    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".
  14. Musical Tastes

    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.
  15. Musical Tastes

    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 (à 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.
