Re: Today I’m happy about...

^ that's feckin outrageous! Liking a pie does not a Wiganer make! Low IQ, incest and constant complaining are a better yardstick. Oi, you c*nt.

Re: What are you watching tonight?

The Crown, episode 3 of the new series about the Aberfan disaster. So sad. I visited Abefan some years ago whilst working down there. I sat on the other side of the valley and looked across to where the school is/was under a slag heap and where the kids are buried in the cemetery under white graves...

Re: The Dons visit the University...V Milton Keynes Home. 3-0'clock 15-11-2019

He was a fox in the box - snap chances type. Didn't run in behind much from memory. Though different style of football of course. ...a style of football which wasn't exactly averse to going long. if ALF were an in-behinder we'd surely have tried knocking it over the top a bit more, either via Madin...

Re: The Dons visit the University...V Milton Keynes Home. 3-0'clock 15-11-2019

Well, what's that lad called who's now in Australia? :conf: Memory's not my strong suit but I don't recall Alf scoring many one-on-ones. I recall him missing some, like at Reading in a night match. Which is not to decry the great man. He just seemed to get most of his goals from being Johnny Onthes...

Re: The Dons visit the University...V Milton Keynes Home. 3-0'clock 15-11-2019

I don't agree. For a 36 year old he gets in the channels well - see his goal against Rochdale for example - and away at Bristol Rovers. The problem when Dodoo puts the ball across is often DM is the only person in the box - I think its harsh to criticise him for that - and when he's the only one in...

Jaw-dropping cuntiness (even by their standards) by the Tories last night as they renamed their HQ Twitter feed "FactCheckUk" and started tweeting rebuttals to Corbyn as if they were an independent organisation.

Re: The Dons visit the University...V Milton Keynes Home. 3-0'clock 15-11-2019

We had Murphy, they didn't. At 36, he's still one of the best strikers in this league. We didn't have a difference maker last season, so it's nice to have one this time. In tight 0-0s, he's exactly the kind of striker you need. Agreed. Quite a few near me seem to moan about big Daryl. But I think h...

He'll be an unmitigated disaster. Levy's as tight as a duck's arse, so when Mourinho 4ucks up, he'll just blame the chairman for not sharing his ambition etc.

I wonder who his next Luke Shaw will be?

And of him coming out of a nightclub pissed wet through with sweat :lol:

Re: Today I'm happy about......

Wow. Imagine having those views from your living room! We stayed on the seafront on holiday this year and I loved hearing the waves as I was drifting off to sleep. Incredibly therapeutic, isn't it?! Whenever I go camping I always look to pitch as close to a stream / beck as I can for the same reason.

Not sure on that. If you're citing the safeguarding guidelines - they are FA guidelines not rules and apply to the premiership U21s as far as I know..... Ah, then I've been misinformed. Even SJM's labouring under the same misapprehension as I. What I do think they'll throw the book as us for, btw, ...

I see that old Bandwaggon Burnham's popped-up in relation to the fire in town. Absolutely to be expected given his role. However, once again he shows himself up to be the egregious, point-scoring feck* that he is. "In my capacity as Mayor of GM I've increased the number of Firefighters, however, due...
