So in an hour long build up to Spurs v Leicester we've had extended interviews with Higuain and Silva. So glad I don't pay for sky anymore, absolute joke.

I never watch the build up when we play the top sides anymore. In fairness, the beginning to Super Sunday is more general because they'd only have 10 mins to preview Man City v Chelsea after analysing our game.

 

I heard people slagging off the Liverpool v Leicester build up and I could bet that it was 90% Liverpool and 10% "Leicester are where they should be, why are they angry at the manager" etc.

Like Todge, I avoid any of the pre-match, half-time, and post-match analysis. It's never particularity insightful and frequently infuriating. I don't need anyone else to tell me what to think about the match, and teh experience is more enjoyable for it. Anything that is worthwhile can be found on social media afterwards. If I've got mates round, we pretty much perfectly time a game of Fifa during the half-time time break :thumbup:

Puel being compared to Peter Taylor. Any Leicester fan who lived through March-October 2001 and even suggests that should have their season ticket taken away.

still on the fence with Puel,but when people on here and especially on FB pages saying

Fraud Puel

or clown 

 

just seems like sheep mentality, as you are definitely not the first to say it,and it wasn’t remotely funny the first time.

 

While we are on that sort of thing

 

Wet Spam

Man Ure

Florist

Direby

Spuds

 

Can get in the bin too.

I agree with all of those except Wet Spam, which is right up there with Colin willy puller

I set an alarm for a 2pm poo, if that impresses anyone?

Awards season. Just a bunch of insincere, right-on luvvies and industry insiders slapping each other on the back telling each other how much they love each other. But we know it's just an excuse to drum up more sales for their mediocre film/terrible new album.

To be fair, that advert get it's message across. 

 

I mean Marcus' data self is actually interesting and funny. An obvious case of identity theft if I've ever saw one.

Yeah agree with this, build up is the absolute pits these days. Of course I gobbled up every second of the World Cup build up, but general regular season stuff is just guff.

 

Tune in as the teams come out. YouTube/other stuff at half time. Switch over as soon as the whistle/table has been shown. I even do the same now for most of Match of the Day.

 

It's part of a wider issue of punditry being terrible, pandering to the audience (hence smaller teams getting brief mentions) and my general impatience. Genuinely don't get how people can sit and watch an hour of build up to two normal, regular Premier League games...

Having a wank at half time helps when we are playing like shite. Give it a hand.

Parents these days :rolleyes:

 

My U10’s team always start the game well then fade 2nd half cos they’re fvcked. I ‘suggested’ to the parents on WhatsApp that the kids have a half time orange to give them a boost, like we did back in the day.

 

Responses from parents included:

 

> My boy won’t eat oranges!

> How about you give them a Red Bull or Lucozade sport?

> Can you as the coach please tell them to eat thier breakfast cos they won’t listen to me!

> Jelly Babies?

> Jaffa cakes or some sort of chocolate?

 

FFS. No wonder we’re turning into a nation of fat fvckers.

Show them pictures/videos of dressing rooms where they have orange segments laid out and tell them why and hopefully they will want to be like their idols.
