Wow, that's cool about your Grandfather. My brother is a United fan, so naturally the only team that I hate more than ManU is Arsenal (I am a Spurs fan, after all)

I figured it best not to quote the ultra long-post.

Edit: I just remembered the reason I came over to this thread was to suggest that a new member name themselves MeanMrKetchup. I would have done it myself if I had thought of it.

At least you can brag that even Spurs can beat us at Old Trafford now, like everyone else, EXCEPT Arsenal :)

It's been about 20 odd years since I saw us play this badly, hard to go back to those bad old days again - that's what comes of getting a manager who has never won a thing in his life.  I'd love to get such a high paid job on the basis of a CV with no accomplishments on it.

 

And I have. Nonstop. Meanwhile, our manager sacking seems to be working out pretty well.

Can't be fun being a Spurs fan having Tim Sherwood as your manager. Goodbye Europe. Man U need 3 or 4 really good players or their season will end disastrously. It isn't just Moyes who is to blame, the team Ferguson left is filled with too many ageing players and/or duds (Anderson, Ferdinand, Nani, Young, Smalling. Wellbeck is nowhere near as good as the media build him up to be.) and desperately needs midfielders who can create. The fact Man U won the title last season was more down to the manager, the signing of van Persie (who's currently injured), and the lack of decent opposition challenging. And don't forget Fergie's first few years in charge, the stories go that he was one game away from the sack.

Me, i'm a happy neutral who supports a Junior side in Glasgow (not kids playing but men who are paid either very little or nothing normally - we don't do the naming thing simple in Scotland, think non-League in England). Costs less than a £5 to get in and its well worth it.

Yeah, um, I can't think of a single Beatles song with a spider in it.

Who will be your knight in shining armor to take care of this problem for you?

Being in the country spiders i like, tho not crawling over me, it's moths and the like that fly about at night in your room. I totally blame the stories of how moths eat your clothes.

Since it comes to mind. Was in Glasgow today and went into a huge shop that had it's windows filled with signs saying things like "Sale" & "Up to 60% off". Out of everything available to buy in the men's department the sale items consisted of what was on 2 small railings and you knew were only on sale because nobody would ever buy them full price. And £3 off a £25 item is not a great saving. 

Where does the logic come that £4 off a £50 dvd set is a bargain by the way? 

Was once in a supermarket that had shampoo on sale. They got their pricing on the discounted item wrong by having the new price higher than the original. I took a photo of it at the time.

Right, who's bored senseless thru this post?

Hey guys, 

I think some of my posts from right before the forum "disappeared" have disappeared. I'm not positive, though. Has this happened to anyone else, or am I just crazy? Either way, I don't really care about the posts I've lost. I'm just curious. That is why I'm not posting this in the forum help section.

I believe a handful of posts were lost during the switch to a new server just over a week ago, Parlance mentioned a few vanishing.

That's sad ahdn_paul_01 if some of yours vanished, mmm. You will have to work a bit harder to get to that elusive number.

Tim Sherwood's working out pretty well right now, he's at least solved the problem I had with AVB, which was that we had about 6 goals in 10 games.

It was hilarious to watch Spurs against Man City and Liverpool as the performances were clueless. I have no idea if the players had given up or just didn't have a clue what they were supposed to be doing but it was terrible. Goal scoring was also a major factor in that in so many games i doubt Spurs would have scored even if their opponents were in the changing rooms.

Spot on there mmm.  I think it all goes back to the 'new' owners and the sale of Ronaldo to pay their debt and line their pockets - I expect many tough years ahead unless they prove me wrong.  Would love to have them make me eat my words :)

Ha ha  - nice one.  We could talk about the fact that the mailman delivered 13 letters to me yesterday, he must have been saving them all up after the holiday break, and of course more than half were bills.  Oh for the days when we used to write letters to one another and I looked forward to mail deliveries (well, apart from the 51 ebay purchases I made last year which kept him busy and me happy).

Yip. I suspect the debacle in last summer's transfer window was caused in some part by all the money that needs to be repaid thru the loans they have to service their debts that they created to buy the club (have i got that right?). I think Ferguson had such a legendary status that if he caused enough noise inside the club (never out in the open) then players would be bought but Moyes doesn't have that - tho he did act like an imbecile in the press when they were going about trying to conduct their business.
