  1. Absolute cvnts of our time Pt.MXXVI

    These evil bastards dragging a shark behind them whilst speeding in their boat. Sick fvcks, that's wound me right up! http://news.sky.com/story/investigation-as-evil-men-film-shark-being-dragged-by-speedboat-10963825
  2. 2017-18 third kit release?

    About 6 years ago, I'm sure I read a study on footballers & kits etc which found that green was the worst colour to have as it doesn't stand out in your peripheral vision, therefore making it harder to follow your own players and pick out passes.
  3. Similarly to the NHS, there is plenty of money going in to it etc but it's just spent incredibly poorly within a shit system really. The police have been pushing the 101 number for years and rightly so. They shouldn't be pulled away from real problems to deal with something which isn't an emergency, then they go spouting this nonsense and having dedicated units set up for mean words.
  4. Well Sadiq Khan set up an online hate unit hub just for the police in London earlier this year at a cost of nearly £1 million per year, so thats a starting point for perspective. Seriously though, encouraging people to ring 999 if their feelings have been hurt. Get a fvcking grip!
  5. The ones who got away

    Eder. Went to Inter instead.

    Federico Bernadeschi on the verge of joining Juventus for just over £35 million after completing his medical. Great signing!
  7. Premier League, 2017-2018 Season Thread

    Most teams struggle with the integration of big new signings, even ourselves. Looking back at some of their good ones, they've had players like Yaya, Fernandinho, Silva, Aguero, De Bruyne all hit the ground running and that's not a bad list to have. Stones obviously hasn't but that's as he's not that great anyway. I still think they'll be considerably better this year. As things stand, I think Chelsea are in a worse position.

    Value or not, Walker, Danilo and Mendy are huge upgrades on Clichy, Sagna, Kolarov and Zabaleta (though I always liked him). Man City will be considerably stronger this year. Whether they'll win the league though, I'm unsure.
  9. European Football 17/18

    I've not seen the offside decision, but I'm in total agreement with regards to everything you've said about the handball. It was a penalty, no argument. If I was playing and that happened to the opposition team, I'd be going mad for a pen to be given. Then if it had happened to me, I'd be expecting to have a pen given against me. Absolute madness that such a key part of the game can be taken in two such different ways. It's a pen, end of.
  10. European Football 17/18

    Having read up more about it. Before the tournament, they all had meetings saying that if the ball is deflected or played on to the players own arm, then the penalty doesn't need to be given. It was pointed out that the ball came up off the England player's own thigh on to her arm so no penalty was given. It's absolutely rubbish and I don't agree with it, it should have been a pen, but apparently those are the rules as it's classed as unintentional EDIT: Explained slightly better in this BBC article http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/40701230
  11. What grinds my gears...

    I used to have an ex girlfriend who did this all the time. Stressed about something, asked for advice then never ever took it, then got stressed again. It was infuriating. There's a name for idiots like that.. Askholes
  12. Let's have a TV shows thread.

    Finally got round to starting Stranger Things. 5 episodes in and loving every minute so far!
  13. President Trump & the USA

    Good reply. I can see it from the other side, how he was brought up being kind of brainwashed, but the payout and official government apology is ridiculous. It's potentially set a dangerous precedent now.
  14. He said the most disgraceful thing about it all, was people on here, and I disagreed as I think the media furore over it all was worse than a handful of idiots on here who (luckily) don't have the whole of the nation listening to them. Unfortunately, the media had the whole nations ears to spout absolute bollocks and slander our club, our players and us fans, rather than a few on here in a relatively closed environment, if any of that makes sense? We're all entitled to our opinions so it's no biggie, even if my first sentence of me previous reply seemed a little narky. Something we can all agree on though, was that those going overboard on here about him with some of the insults was not justified and they can fvck off indeed
  15. No, I have to disagree. The biggest disgrace was the media over reaction, claiming all the players were snakes, saying the supporters (who were actually close to the club and could see what was happening) who agreed with the sacking were all back stabbers, were ruining football etc. The sports media showed themselves up to be clueless wankers, especially the way they all turned coat and said how good the decision was 4 weeks later after Shakey started winning. The media lost all respect then.
