    That was the planetary Kris Commons.

    That period every season from 2009 to 2011 where he would come out in the Record some time in April predicting that celtic were going to run away with the league, only to see the league come back home to Ibrox is one of my favourite times as a football fan.

    Yeah, I remember that. I think it was papaguy.

    Really? They didn't win at all in the groups and he scored once in the knockout stages. I (maybe unfairly, I don't know) remember him being pretty average.

    I wonder if he might score more than 1 in every 100 free kicks if he decided not use the Juninho technique more often.

    Defending is vulgar.

    Who would have thought that Ronaldo would finally have a good tournament at this stage of his career.

    Oh man, I don't know how long you've been on here but it used to be ridiculous. Cunts saying Xabi Alonso and Javi Martinez were better and stuff.

    I see Sergio "Only makes two yard passes, why did Pep get rid of Yaya?" Busquets has set up two against the European champions and is literally fucking everywhere.

    Struggling to see how anyone who doesn't have a passion for cock could think ITV has any male presenters or pundits who are noticeably better than Oatley and Aluko.

    I'll have you know I loved Savicevic and Boban equally.

    I was 7 when the Croatian war ended, what sort of weird kid do you think I was? Papac was my favourite.

    Plenty of fighters with boring personalities hit the big time though, Canelo being one.

    Can't get my head around the fact he isn't a bigger star. He only has 100,000 followers on Twitter, even. Mental.

    Isle of Man TT (Adam Lyon)

    Sure, but they aren't typically taking place in a officially sanctioned, commercial, profit-making event. A mountain doesn't have a duty of responsibility towards a mountaineer. There were 80 something entrants this year, there have been 2 deaths already. There are multiple deaths almost every year. That is an astonishingly high fatality rate for an organised event. I don't say ban it, but I can see why some think it's ridiculous.

    Isle of Man TT (Adam Lyon)

    255 fatalities on any race course is ludicrous, to be fair. I think consenting adults should be entitled to risk their lives if they want but there's no doubt that is indeed "dangerously daft". The roads are simply not designed for racing, which incentivises the more daring riders to push the limits beyond any sensible level in the knowledge that the less daring won't.

    Isle of Man TT (Adam Lyon)

    Used to live on the TT course at May Hill in Ramsey, not far from the hairpin. Have never been able to wrap my head around those who come back for more after winning it.
  19. He was stylish and fun to watch during the most highly commercialised era of football yet seen (that could, for example, make a cultural icon out of Edgar Davids, a defensive midfielder, and Pierluigi Collina, a fucking referee).
  20. What a strange sentiment. When he says "I've been there" surely he means he has also failed to do his job (ie, score or set up a goal) in a Champion's League final? But then he should be gutted for Karius.
  21. I don't know, his achievements (not his ability) as a player are matched by plenty of players, and exceeded by many too. He also came up short at least as often as he rose to the occasion (it's strange the way everybody forgets that in his prime he was anonymous in back to back Champions League finals while he was the star player of the strongest team in European, who also happened to be off their tits on performance enhancing drugs). He had one great international tournament (Euro 2000), one overrated one (France 98, where he did pretty much nothing until the final, and missed two games) and one good one, Germany 2006, where he decided his temper was more important than the team). He happened to play in absolutely fantastic teams in both 1998 and 2000, but gets all the credit. Winning three consecutive European cups, in contrast, has never been done by any manager. He is bizarrely under-praised as a manager. It seems that just because he has a team of stars this means he deserves less credit, even though the Real Madrid habit of collecting individual superstar egos rather than moulding a cohesive, balanced team has ways been considered a hindrance to success, not a road to it. Mourinho, the "best manager of his generation", couldn't win it even once with Real, Zidane does it three times in three seasons. He has no equivalently ridiculous achievements as a player.
  22. His managerial career has been more impressive than his playing career.
  23. How would you ever get over this?

    2018/19 Football Shirts

    Because they want people to buy each top. Clubs and kit manufacturers have to rely on our loyalty to our clubs to fleece us each season, rather than our loyalty to Betfred or Pampers or Vagisil or whichever sponsor is on the front of the shirt.

    He said he got over it a long time ago and was proud of taking the team to the final, so I didn't feel too bad about it
