Why do all Mancunians sound thick as pigshit?

That guy has the IQ of a mollusc and the voice of the Sale equivalent of Joe Pasquale.

For once,a competent footy post from Struckwit.

Reina and Agger looking like idiotic losses. Don't know what Rodgers had against them. Reina is way better than Mignolet and both him and Agger can distribute well from the back and you'd think that's what Rodgers wanted.

Here you go Rob...

06.05 Wake up, having emptied my bladder of Carlsberg mid sleep. Oops. Shouldn't have had that third pint last night.

07.05 Wake up again. Check the computer. Someone acknowledged one of my posts on Bedrock without telling me to "fucking do one". Have a wank at the momentous glory of it. Go and piss out the dregs.

08.00 Should I have a shower? Nah, had one yesterday. Turn the undies inside out. Quick spray of Lynx Java on the socks. Ready to go.

09.05 Breakfast. Coco pops.

09.20 Leave the house. Catch the bus to the DHSS. It's Giro day.

11.45 Finally got to the front of the queue. Talk to Brenda at the counter about the Gunners. She's not interested in whether Ozil plays in the hole or as a shadow striker. What a let down. Customer behind tries to nudge me out of the way. Not moving until I hear whether she thinks Gibbs or Monreal should start left back next week.

13.00 Back home. Postman calls. Tries to sell me some gear. Says it's his extra income earner on the side and given I'm at home in the day I look the type. "Sorry pal, I don't do gear, I used to have a problem. I must tell you about it sometime. In fact, come in for a brew and I'll tell you all about it." "Fuck off, not interested," he says.

14.00 Write some new comedy material for the Bedrock board. Gonna drip feed this stuff at the appropriate moments, too good to lash it all out there at once.

15.15 Hang around the local hospital for a bit. Help a boy in the toilets who has his ballbag caught in his zip. Good deed for the day.

16.00 Post some of my finest material on Bedrock. People telling me I've had a 'reg'.  Think that's good because people say that to Smallman all the time and he's a board legend.

17.00 Beans on toast.

19.00 Crack open a can.

19.15 Fucking hell, this Warsteiner stuff is strong. Mental stuff.

20.50 Finish the pack of four bottles. Pissed. Start trecking down to the Polish offy. It's cold so I put on my Arsene-esque bench coat.

21.30 Wake up dazed outside the Polish offy. Remember taking a punch of a 15 year old, but he was a really hard 15 year old. Called me a cunt for not buying him and his mates beer.

22.00 Go home. PM Liquitech but he's not replying to me, even though he appears online. Must be this board and its rather lackluster manner of highlighting incoming PMs.

22.15 Fall asleep.

Never mind welcome back. Not been anywhere. Just busy.

Where is that fucking cretin Bedrob?

Utter spastics.

Yeah, sorry Smashdad, I don't like unmixed electronic comps at all. And mix CD wise, pretty difficult to ever top Hawtin's Decks EFX and 909 and Danny Tenaglia's Athens for me, really.

Good thread idea though.

Get your plastic flags out.

Loved watching last night.

Liverpool getting shown up for the embarrassment they are.

You should be embarrassed even showing your face in a footy thread when even your own manager is banging on about how pointless you and all your team's other 'fans' are.

Bit embarrassing being a middle aged man trying to keep up with teenage stuff imo.

Is that a comment on people following the Mercury Music Prize?

It's a more appropriate comment about Mercury Music Prize panel, which is a load of beardy wankers trying to be relevant and consistently getting it wrong.

eg M People winning in 94.
Portishead, just about the least interesting Bristol act of the time, beating Tricky's superior Maxinquaye in 95.
The Contino Sessions not winning in 2000.
Antony and the Johnsons anyone? Fuck knows how MIA's Arular didn't win it in 2005.

What a load of bollocks.

And what's "cuisine" got to do with it?

Pretty fucking high up on the list of things to commend or condemn a place I would say.

There is no Michelin Guide for mainland China.

But Michelin reviewers don't have a clue about Asian cuisine anyway,they've already made a laughing stock of themselves for their choices in Japan and HK.

Sorry to burst your bubble Beijing Dave but the food in hk is shite. It's good in Beijing I'll give you that though.

Canto cuisine in my opinion is great. Unless you just eat the shit they serve up in those plastic, luridly-coloured diners they have in shopping malls. Even if it's not to your taste, it is still better than British or any northern European grot.

Having decent cheese, bread and sausages (or just sausages in the case of Germany) doesn't mean you have a cuisine. The 'food' is the only thing I don't miss about back home.

Best place to live: Buenos Aries. Definitely not Hong Kong.

Hong Kong,Beijing and Shanghai make a joke of most cities when it comes to cuisine though. That's a simple fact.

Loopy making this thread all about Canada. And himself. As per.

Loopy,as nice as your plate glass cities and healthcare systems might be,no one will ever put Canadia at the top of their lists because you'd have to be surrounded by Canadians,all of whom are just plain weird.

And you can fuck off if you think poutine is food.

So does London you complete rem.

And you don't have to be near anywhere near as many Canadians if you live there which is a bonus in anyone's book.

Stephane Guivarch was hilarious... IIRC played the whole of the 98 World Cup without scoring... despite having Zidane,Djorkaeff,Deschamps and Lizarazu supplying the bullets. Utter dogshite

Who was that brutal looking cunt who played for United?Prunier?

Does anyone remember Jean Ferri?Utter shit signed as a staunch Houllier loyalist (his mole in the dressing room)to find out who was leaking team selections. Apparently it was Ince who was duly fucked off and Ferri never played another game.

Aquilani should be in there aye,for the cash spunked on him and because we sold fucking Xabi Alonso and got HIM. But he has won a whole load of caps for Italy so he must be alright (and indeed was in Serie A).

I think to be classed as great you have to have some longevity, therefore Fowler over Torres and Owen for me.

This sticks in my mind when i think of Fowler.

That and the mental hat-trick against Arsenal (at the time boasting an impervious back-line).

I agree it's difficult to consider Torres a 'great', especially as he pretty much fell off a cliff from 2010, but he had absolutely fucking everything as a striker and it's a shame we all didn't see a few more years of him at his slaloming, Vidic-terrifying best.

Would you say Owen in his prime was better than Fowler, before he got fucked by injuries i mean?

I don't reckon so, no.

Fowler got fucked by injuries too, of course.
