    Danny Murphy

    Making a formal complaint about a football pundit's totally non offensive views on a player? What an absolute load of nonsense. Our fans really have inversed right up their own backsides. We wanted to join the elites, looks like some of us are up there with Man Utd et al in terms of delusion and self importance. Murphy's views are silly, ill informed and at best populist drivel, but complaining formally to the BBC just because he's said something you don't like. Something that isn't offensive, illegal or even politically charged? Behave yourself. Here was me thinking it was millennials who were the soft ones easily offended.

    What grinds my gears...

    The hold music of Santander cutting in every 20 seconds with "I'm sorry to keep you waiting," which is 100x more annoying than actually being on hold!
  5. Sorry to run into the thread like a thirsty dog, but I'd be very interested in the VHS tapes. My channel (www.youtube.com/lcfcseasonreviews) is designed to keep these tapes alive. Would be more than happy to take them off your hands

    Akhisarspor Match Thread

    I literally came here to say the same thing. I went to the Notts County game on Saturday and instantly regretted it. I try every season but I can't do it. I give ZERO shits about friendlies. They matter absolutely zero for the season ahead. ZERO. Still to this day I remember us losing 2-1 to Northampton Town and everyone losing their heads just days before we began a 102 point Championship title winning season They're glorified training matches that mean the square root of naff all and have no lasting impact on the season ahead. It's quite humorous how much people try to place emphasis on these games, people are so pathetic. Get a life and enjoy the heatwave everyone. In this day and age where the club have the ability to broadcast every training match before the season starts it only perpetuates the silly season of fans desperate to over analyse and take things too seriously.

    The Heat

    Got married on Friday, good lord my back was sweaty, and the journey in the wedding car was like a sauna. Should've gone with the shorts and t-shirt attire. Shirt, waistcoat and suit jacket makes a man sweat. Who'd get married in the summer

    What grinds my gears...

    We could probably all write a book about partisan politics on Twitter, but specifically those who get so hypocritical over local election results. Their party does well in a local election, vote count ticks up, swing to them and they're giving it the big'un, waving their metaphorical willies at how THE PEOPLE HAVE SPOKEN. Their party does badly in a local election, vote count down, swing away from them and they're on the defensive. Local politics isn't representative, look at the turnout, still years from an election, THE PEOPLE WILL CHANGE THEIR MINDS. I do find it slightly funny, the gall and lack of self awareness, but mainly quite annoying as this is what we have to deal with.

    Local journalism, the last bastion of 'free speech' and holding local authorities to account, which is essentially as in the clickbait gutter as the national titles. Specifically the Leicester Mercury and their willful misrepresentation on Facebook of an article they wrote yesterday. The article was actually quite balanced, but the whole premise of the FB headline was to whip people into a frenzy, bear-baiting style. It's very frustrating. (Yes, it's been going on for years, but this article in question just pushed me over the edge into the GmG thread!)

    I genuinely haven't watched Mock the Week for years. It always came across as so forced and like others have mentioned, too many unknowns who really weren't funny. Like HIGNFY, some guests would make minimal contribution with a bit of canned laughter. It felt worse on MtW because when they did the 'jump in on the mic' style comedy they'd really be shown up for how utterly turgid they are. If you like Widdicombe I'd recommend his 90's football podcast, which is insanely good. His humour (along with his co-presenters) on their is just brilliant.

    Man United (A) - Friday 10th August 8pm

    I know they're barmy times, and hindsight is a wonderful thing, but it is a Friday afternoon where the M1, A50 and M6 need to be used. They might be there by 5pm but it only takes one accident on one of those arteries and suddenly you're in trouble, (Still agree broadly about the fact it's so early, mind!)

    Man United (A) - Friday 10th August 8pm

    Yeah I experienced this too. Says I have 308 points on my dashboard but I should have 358. Emailed them earlier and got a reply on something completely different! But glad to know they're sorting it out.

    Losing an interest in football

    I promised myself I was going to cut back on the away games last season, ended up missing only one game Promising myself the same thing this season. If it's an away game that doesn't have much riding on it in the league and on TV I won't go... we'll see if I keep that promise to myself. The comment above is right, it's an addiction. But I'll be honest regular football is just dull as dishwater now. If it's not a "big game" (we can debate the definitions!) then I'm not interested in watching it tbh.

    Just gone a bit mad at reading this line about England's World Cup campaign on a thread in another forum... Wound me right up. I know it shouldn't, but it did.
  17. Jesus, if you're really that riled by it and think they've just blatantly lied log an official complaint with the club on behalf of the affected individual, don't just bitch about it on a forum.

    Heard they're going to crown the winner of Rafa-Novak the champion and award the trophy. Whoever wins that will mash either of these in the final.

    France v Croatia - World Cup Final

    Modric playing for a reduced/suspended jail sentence with his ongoing court case? No way they'd bang up the inspirational World Cup winning midfielder, if he's not already played his way into freedom already...

    What grinds my gears...

    Yep YES! Drives me insane, this. Also disappointing to see the official Channel 4 account getting involved with this sort of absolute buffoonery on here, too. Of course, notwithstanding their embarrassing miss of the younger age teams, this type of talk it probably more likely to set those you want to capture into being behind the women's game against you than for you. Baffling that this sort of thing has any kind of popular support, though I'll go out on a stereotyping whim and say any male or female agreeing with this doesn't like football.

    Post Match - England 1 - Croatia 2 (AET)

    It's a weird feeling. I'm really gutted and pleased with the whole experience, but I'm not absolutely devastated... there's a strange calmness on the knowledge that France would have absolutely battered us in the final, so I don't get to witness that,
  22. Someone gonna get back to the game, or are we going to have 20 more pages about who likes who and why people should/shouldn't like certain nations etc etc??

    Championship 2018-2019

    Let's be honest, as soon as we saw Redknapp come in and they started to spend the money they did, 99% of football fans could see what was going to happen. Deluded "love is blind" fandom was likely the only thing that stopped Birmingham fans realising the same. It's like Bielsa. We know he won't be manager this time next year, but Leeds fans will be imagining the UCL trophy parade in 2021 as a crowd surfing Bielsa carries the trophy in joy.

    Current LCFC Players Quiz

  25. look at these Daily Mail readers desperate for Sterling to be dropped. I've dropped all my nervous pessimism and am 100% buying into the positivity. Croatia are knackered, we're a great team unit and we'll never have a better chance. They've already fulfilled my dream of seeing a country come together in the sheer anticipation. I cannot wait. Same team and a good performance and we'll come through. Sterling to score two and blow up the heads of the lowkey bigots and know-it-alls across the country.
