Quote: Throckmorton Turdblossom

To your list, I'd have to say you should add:
Paul Brown
George Halas
Vince Lombardi
Tom Landry
Don Shula
Chuck Knoll

I'd be happy to let any one of them run my football team (even the dead ones).


Different game J-Man.

I've heard of all of them, and I'm sure they're worthy, but as we've said before - our game is truly global, whereas yours is parochial American.

Not that there's anything wrong with that. Your version of football can be great to watch, and probably good to play, but it really doesn't arouse the passion our game does.

The vuvuzela thing at the World Cup in South Africa must have put a lot of people off, and most of us found it really annoying - but that really is an aberration.

As Pele legendarily said: "The beautiful game."

Very few people would argue with that.

Kindest Regards

Skoob.

You're making this difficult JP.

I have to go for Sir Matt, obviously.

He didn't win as many honours as Fergie or Bob Paisley, but he took over a club that was down and out and on its arse and made them into an institution.

Plus when I was about ten years old he sent me a letter - it's at my mum's house, still got it. I wrote a poem and my mam sent it in. The man took the time to write back. Signed it with a fountain pen.

I actually went to Maine Road before I went to Old Trafford, but it wasn't quite my cup of tea. First time at OT was in 1969 as a nipper. Best, Law, Charlton, it's changed a bit since then.

It always feels like I'm really home whenever I'm there.

Oh, pass the frigging tissues.

You'll have me skriking in a minute.

Regards

Skoob.

Spelling mistake on nutritional though - nothing a quick edit won't sort out.

I'd never eat scouse on principle.

Black puddings are nice though. Boiled up, like you get on Bury or Burnley market, with malt vinegar and English mustard.

Bugger...I'm getting hungry now.

And I have a hangover.

Time to go on the wagon for a while methinks.

Work tomorrow.

Regards

Skoob.

Never met the man - although I'd have loved to.

Saw him at games though when I was a nipper. Always seemed to wear a grey suit and a pinkish to red shirt. Not much dress sense but certainly a top man.

Kinell JP - you'll have me queuing for a season ticket next...nah, not happening.

Are you old enough to remember the lads pen in the corner of the kop, and they had one at Goodison too?

There's a place over here in Newcastle where they serve what they claim to be the hottest curry in the world.

Similar deal - if you can finish it, it's free.

It often gets mentioned in Viz Comic, but very few ever finish the curry.

I saw the chef there making this dish on a TV show - and he said that anybody who tries it is mad. Said he wouldn't touch it, let alone try eating it. Apparently it's pretty hard to keep down.

I once saw a lad try to eat curried eggs that were so hot that his top lip literally turned pink as it burned.

I recall telling you Gents that a company I worked for had a plant in Texas. My then boss went over there and went to a restaurant where they cut your tie off with scissors as you entered. He showed me the pics. He had a massive steak too, and finished it so got it for free. Don't think it was the same place as the one on TV yesterday though.

Think I also said that my wife is a fully qualified chef, and she quite fancies visiting Texas, mainly for the food on offer there. Not so much the giant steaks, more the spicy Tex-Mex stuff you chaps do so well.

It's been slowly catching on over here too - you can get fajitas, burritos, nachos and stuff and we have a Tex-Mex restaurant chain called Chiquitos, but the main fast staples here are still Indian, Chinese, Kebabs, pizzas and of course good old fish and chips - which if done properly is delicious.

The best fish and chips I ever tasted were in Brighton on the south coast. Big thick, chunky cod done in batter and lovely golden thick cut chips.

Mmmm - delicious it was.

Regards

Skoob.

He was a character Shanks - even our lot loved him. Joe Mercer was a cool half-back too.

I remember Alex Ferguson in an interview saying how he once went to Sir Matt for advice.

"What's up son?"

"It's the press boss - they're doing my head in..."

"Don't read 'em."

Simple.

One story about your man Shankly I always loved was when your mob were playing an away leg somewhere in Europe and the players couldn't sleep properly for the constant ringing of church bells.

Shanks went out to try to put a stop to it - even though it was a thousand year old tradition. He didn't succeed but the old bugger certainly gave it his best shot.

Great bloke, and a legend to all true fans.

Regards

Skoob.

Sandhills, Everton Valley - I was the one who wouldn't ever run away.

BTW - the Shitty/Shameless line was well below the belt.

Just what I'd expect.

I found you. And you'll do for me. Even if you lived in Bury for a bit.

You always make me smile,

And you've always been kind to me. Love you for that geezer. (Not in a gay way - obviously) Can you help me out with these stroppy Scousers?

Terrible they are.

You always get respect from me mate - mind you I am as pissed as a fart on me Spoofday!

Quote: Jeremy Paxman

How can you stand on the Kop and then defect to Manure? Did you have some trauma in your life that resulted in a complete mental breakdown?


With all due respect to NMC - yes, whatever.

To JP - Yes, I really have stood on the kop in the wet legging days.

I was an away fan at all times. Saw Kevin Keegan, Stevie Heighway, Ian Callaghan and Emlyn Hughes - respect to those guys, And to Tommy Smith - nails he was.

Had to keep me gob shut because the accent was a dead giveaway.

Anyway, I'm not grovelling to you any more you Scouse bastard. I bet you were one of them gobshites trying to kick my head in at Lime Street Station.

They never took to me, them Scousers.

You're alright though JP - I'll make an exception in your case.

Knowing how you love Gary Neville and that...

I live in Portsmouth these days, and I talk like a right proper Southerner, nearly Cockney.

If you don't believe me, ask Colonel Juan. Lynton. or QM - they'll set you straight.

You make me laugh you bad Mickey Mouser

JP

I'm not going to fuck about with you.

Honest.

You're a Scouser and I'm a Manc. (Salford to be exact)

I can't extend the hand of friendship more effectively than I offer it to you.

You're a great writer with a great deal of insight, and although I hesitate to say this, you do have a proper scouse sense of humour.

Cutting, even vicious.

Reading your stuff makes me homesick.

Man I miss that humour.

So if you'd be so kind as to let me be your buddy, I'd be honoured.

Except on match days. I promise I'll only hate your guts on match days.

You scouse bastard

Deal or what?

Skoob (You'll never take the Stretford End)

And yeah - I stood on the Kop back in the day

Hey Abel

Just between you and me...strictly on the QT...

That Scottish chap on the walking sticks was effin brilliant.

I think the locals thought he was a bit bats in the belfry.

Seemed like they all knew him - but he was as good as gold and it was a pleasure meeting him. That's what life really should be all about.

Communication.

Wish you could have been there dude.

Ooh er!

Mark, behave.

Take this as a warning. If you insist on putting your finger in it and leaving biccies, I can no longer be held responsible.

Any more of this and I'll ban you forever from this esteemed website.

You're not too old to get a good kick up the arse young man. Just ask my wife if you don't believe me.

Oh bugger...I think I just made a right arse of this. Truth is I'm a slave to the wife and Mark Lowton's website...

Sorry...I'm so sorry...really repentant...

I am. Honestly...

I'll get me coat...

I like you a lot - as does my Mrs (but not in a lesbianite way, as our esteemed amigo Abel might say) but really...

These constant attacks by your good self on organised religeon and politics are just unfair.

You wanna watch it young lady...

You might just end up in a suitcase in a bathtub somewhere.

Jill Dando was controversial too.

You know what I mean

And there was me, believing that we only have pervy paedo priests in the Catholic church...

Five big bruised thumbs for ya by the way.

Get on the Rooney story right now JO.

That's an order.

Eric would want you to do it.

You never know, Mark might give you a speedboat as a mystery prize.

Still looking for Eric...
