  1. If you'll allow me to ramble a bit, aw man, Big Jack is pretty much the only man in football history to have been both an England football legend AND an Ireland football legend. I'd heard the stories before which people have repeated today about him walking into pubs here and ordering everyone a round which he 'paid' for by cheque safe in the knowledge that the cheque would never be cashed so you have all these pubs in Ireland with framed cheques behind the bar, kept as souvenirs from the day Big Jack visited. Yeah, there were probably jibes about the whole granny rule and half the team then having English accents and the style of play not being great but ask anyone who was there in Stuttgart when they beat England or Genoa when they beat Romania or the Giant Stadium when they beat Italy in front of a sea of green if that mattered? True story, my dad was there when they won on penalties against Romania (my mum's never let him forget allowing him to go) and he's told me all the stories before including when O'Leary walked up to take the decisive penalty half the crowd went 'DAVID O'FUCKING LEARY?!?' but then it went in and it was the greatest moment of his life and I'm pretty sure that includes getting married and his children being born. Jack Charlton not only changed Irish football but he pretty much changed Ireland in general for a time. When he took that job the country was in the shitter and that team, particularly during Italia '90, at least brought optimism and made the people happy. He's unquestionably respected and revered through winning the World Cup with England and from his time at Leeds but he's as revered as you can get in Ireland and he's an honorary Irishman. I remember as well his stinging condemnation on the pitch of the absolute shitbag hooligans at Lansdowne in '95 who didn't five a flying fuck about football and were only there to cause trouble and who gave the rest of the English fans a bad name. I'll have a pint of stout and go fishing in his memory.
  2. So, I watched two recent films today. Onward? Really enjoyed it. That damn Pixar and their damn feels kicking me right in the feels. Capone? Holy shit, what a turkey. You figure, hey, Tom Hardy and he's playing later years Al Capone and that sounds pretty good, right? Yeah? Nope, nope, nope, nope. It was 1 hr 40 mins and felt like 6 hrs 40 mins of pish and I still haven't decided if Tom Hardy is good or bad in it. No, fuck it, he's definitely bad.
  3. Holy forking shirt balls, The Last Dance is so so so fucking good. I wouldn't even call myself a basketball fan in the slightest, I mean, obviously I'd heard of Michael Jordan because I'm a human being who lives on planet Earth but I'd legit never heard the name Scottie Pippen until I watched this which might seem crazy but still. But some of the stuff Jordan used to do? Jesus, that was some Matrix type shit; dude seemed to walk on air. Amazing, amazing documentary that makes me want to hunt out all sorts of basketball footage.
  4. Legit once saw a dude attempt a Stunner in a real life fight and I only wish I was joking. Landed on his arse and didn't hit shit which was a shame because I wanted to see the other dude do some Scott Hall or Rock style bump off it. Again, legit, I am not joking. Now if ever see some fucker do a People's Elbow or a Worm or some shit in a real life fight, well, shit...
  5. In what is my all time favourite thread on this forum, that Imagine entry is my favourite so far. I've laughed ever since. TREMENDOUS. And I like Lennon as much as the next guy but Imagine? Nah, fuck that noise. I have to say though, I dig the absolute fuck out of Into The Mystic, it's legit one of my all time favourite songs.
  6. Yeah, being from Derry myself, Derry Girls ain't happening this year. Even before all this, the whole of Derry would know instantly when Lisa McGee even scratched her arse so we would know when they started filming anything for it because every nosy fucker in the town would find out 67 days in advance. I have no idea how old the cast will be by the time the new series starts, Nicola Coughlan is literally 33 years old playing a 16 year old. It's basically Derry 90210.
  7. So, yeah, add Dave to Atlanta, Mr. Inbetween, Barry, Killing Eve and The Good Place as shows I decided to check out based on users on this very forum talking about them. I'm only 3 episodes in but, holy shit, what a great little show. Saw the Thrift Shop gag coming a mile away at the end of the 2nd episode. Still laughed. Nearly fell off my chair at the end of the 3rd episode. Not that I knew what that particular table was before I watched that episode.... Dave/Ally are also, incidentally, my wife's new favourite couple on TV...which means they're totally going to split up, right? Yeah? Knew it.
  8. So, ah, yeah, this thread remains my all time favourite on this forum. I mean, you shouldn't have to feel compelled to complete the full list, Liam but, I mean, you pretty much have to now, right? That being said, it's already popped up but Marvin Gaye's I Heard It Through The Grapevine is pretty much the greatest song ever, no? Or, at least, it's almost certainly the main one that horrendous singers in my office try to sing along to when it comes on the radio.
  9. Aw man, a lot of that shite Evolution run was pretty much the nadir for me at points. I mean, I like Big Dave and Ric Flair is my all time favourite wrestler but that boring as fuck Triple H cosplaying as a Flair/Race hybrid run was fucking tedious. And, again, it's not a case of me somehow having to justify myself for slagging him off, the whole Triple H is holding everyone down talking point died out 15 years ago, I just never ever found him at all interesting as an on screen talent.
  10. Welllll...The Big Show Show is fucking terrible. I mean, I like Show as much as the next guy and it's inoffensive I guess but, yeah, it's really not very good. I have though recently started watching Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt for the very first time and it is very, very, very, very, very good. What I'm trying to say is it's very good. That being said, the Xan/Kimmy interactions are the best part of the whole show and I don't know now if Xan has been completely written out of it. Hopefully not.
  11. Triple H has always been legit dull as ditchwater to me. I was never one for the whole 2003 Smark Triple H is holding down Shelton/RVD/Booker/whoever glass ceiling malarkey; I'm speaking purely as an on screen talent and, as an on screen talent, I always found him boring as fuck. Probably didn't help that I detested D-X even as a 13 year old back in 1998 when you would think 13 year olds would be into that shit. I recently re-watched a lot of the 1998 Raws, most of it was absolute shite but the Austin/Vince stuff still holds up and I still love the shit out of Austin but D-X were insufferable.
  12. So, yeah, football is pretty irrelevant right now but we can still talk about it. This gets done every few years on here but, hey, why not, your choices can change down the years. YOUR TEAM'S ALL TIME FAVOURITE XI Man United: Schmeichel G. Neville Vidic Stam Irwin Ronaldo Keane Scholes Giggs Cantona Van Nistelrooy Actually, okay, mine hasn't changed much in years. Most of those speak for themselves and are automatic picks but could easily have gone with Rio at centre half but for the, frankly, fearsome duo of Vidic and the big Dutchman there. I'd be faking a hamstring injury in the warm up if I was a centre forward having to line-up against those two. Unless I was Fernando Torres, he used to have Vidic on toast, he never could get the hang of that fucker. I could flip a coin between Ole and van Nistelrooy at centre forward but I'm on a Ruud kick lately. Weirdly, I'm never inclined to include Rooney even though I haven't much idea why. It would be quite the team nevertheless.
  13. Holy shit, that was great. Wrestling needs more hysterical shrieking and old as fuck ladies in the front row. It can't be stated too often but, god damn, Dick Murdoch was just a tad bit good at this whole pro wrestling thing.
  14. I honestly don't know what's going to happen, I mean, football is just a bunch of dudes trying to get a football over a line and is only a game and as beautiful and amazing it is, it is just a game which, in the grand scheme of things, means nothing. But if we have to talk about it, Liverpool are pretty much the champions, they were never in a trillion years going to throw it away and, yet, they can't simply award Liverpool the league and, I'm not just saying that as a United fan, because it would always be the asterisk against it, Liverpool won the league but they didn't win the league and you don't win the league until you've won the league and on and on. But it's only football. And yet we need football. But we don't need it because it's only football and, yeah.
  15. I would be classified as a key worker for the NHS; I'm still in work and haven't been sent home yet. This is unquestionably serious and the mob in government has spent years making cutbacks to the NHS so the workers in it are underpaid, undervalued and overworked so now, when something like this happens which could never have been predicted, the shit hits the fan and it shows how underappreciated all these workers are and, yet, from my dealings with them, the vast majority I've dealt with down the years are basically saints. But when this is all hopefully over, the cynic in me would suggest, they'll still be underpaid, undervalued and overworked.
