  1. I thought Frank handled it perfectly, just enough to hint of sheer enjoyment whilst appearing to be neutral..
  2. TBH I couldn't see us winning this, Spurs were the team in form and frankly we weren't. Stand out performance and kept going both times they equalled . That was a blow to them and a moral boost to us. beating your main rivals by that margin cannot be underestimated Fair play.
  3. he was still praising Costa at the weekend which was rather surprising considering his form for some time has been poor
  4. No I guess my point is that he does all this stuff for the gullible who lap it up. which in turn feeds his ego..
  5. So in your opinion he's a serial badge kisser ? :-)
  6. no JM is about JM first and foremost.
  7. we haven't been 'good' for some time... JM would know this and set up to go at us..
  8. A hospital report sent to the GP gave a diagnosis of "minor head injury" and "concussion". so who leaked the report or is it fiction?
  9. It's a very toxic methodology. It works in the short term because but in order for it to continue it must by definition have a continuous supply of fresh scapegoat. Then chances are at some point the 'wrong person' is selected and the whole thing implodes. Which from a distance it seems ,to do
  10. what on earth is costa doing???
  11. has costa got his boots on the wrong feet?
  12. Ufffff nice one.
  13. the sun announced it wasn't an April fool which they wouldn't do if if were..
  14. de-mob happy, he's ready to go....
  15. ufff I wonder..........
  16. except it didn't so apology accepted hey-ho https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Generation_Snowflake Background[edit] "Generation Snowflake" may be derived from the term "snowflake",[3] which has been used in referring to raising children in ways that give them an inflated sense of their own uniqueness.[3][4][5] This usage of "snowflake" may originate from Chuck Palahniuk's 1996 novel Fight Club, and its 1999 film adaptation. Both the novel and the film include the line "You are not special. You are not a beautiful and unique snowflake."[4][3][6] In January 2017, Palahniuk claimed credit for coining this usage of "snowflake", adding "Every generation gets offended by different things but my friends who teach in high school tell me that their students are very easily offended"; Palahniuk has called it "a kind of new Victorianism.”[7] The term "Generation Snowflake", or its variant "Snowflake Generation" is thought to have originated in the United States.[5] It came into wider use in the United Kingdom in 2016,[3] particularly after Claire Fox, founder of the think tank the Institute of Ideas, published a book called I Find That Offensive! In it she wrote about a confrontation between Yale University students and faculty Head of College, Nicholas Christakis.[8][9] The confrontation arose after Christakis' wife, Erika Christakis, a lecturer at the university, had suggested students should "relax a bit rather than labeling fancy dress Halloween costumes as culturally insensitive", according to Fox.[8] Fox described the video showing the students' reaction as a "screaming, almost hysterical mob of students".[8] Fox said the backlash to the viral video led to the disparaging moniker "generation snowflake" for the students.[8] The term "snowflake generation" was one of Collins Dictionary's 2016 words of the year.[10] Collins defines the term as "the young adults of the 2010s, viewed as being less resilient and more prone to taking offence than previous generations".[10] Similarly, in 2016 the Financial Times included "snowflake" in their annual Year in a Word list, defining it as "A derogatory term for someone deemed too emotionally vulnerable to cope with views that challenge their own, particularly in universities and other forums once known for robust debate" and noting that the insult had been aimed at an entire generation.[2]
  17. In one way it was ever thus. It was only a vocal minority who campaigned to get programs like love thy neighbour, the B&W minstrals show etc banned. On the other hand the remainers over played the racist, bigot, little Englander card too much and it blew up in their face Best comedy moment recently was all those snowflakes crying after Article 50 was invoked :-)
  18. "build em up and knock em down".. did the same when he was here tbf.
  19. JM has only one true love =JM Everything he says and does is to further his own self. When he wins it's his 3 titles, when he loses it's their loss.. However he is clever and manipulative enough to be able to ensure devotion of an almost religious zeal. I expect at every club he's managed to date there is a hardcore group who truly believe he only loves them and will return like the prodigal son to lead them to the promised land Saying that he's done well at ManU to get them to resemble a decent team but last night was poor by anyones standards
  20. Of course the real number 1 is that he coverted the job for many years Missed a lot of the game due to internet issues however within five minutes it was a repeats of JM's Real Madrid V Barcelona. Seems pretty obvious (to me) JM sent them out on a 'if you can't beat 'em , beat 'em ' ticket. However the ManU fans are adiment there wasn't a single foul by them during the whole game and the ref was bent :-)
  21. uffff
  22. yes he was frustrating at times..
  23. revenge is sweet :-)
  24. agent Cech :-)
