"I'll have 20 hits of ecstasy please drug dealer". Yeah Dave, really nailed nuances of the sub culture that one.
I never said it was an accurate portrayal，merely that it was a reasonably good movie... because，y'know，it actually has things like plot，character development，tension，things that are generally seen as “basics” in most genres but no other clubbing movie actually bothers with.
Didn't Gareth Southgate do the same with Middlesbrough?
He was probably an equally mediocre manager.
But Southgate was a fairly dependable centre half who got a few runs in the national side at times when we didn't really have anyone that amazing available in his position, he was hardly the talismanic, world class, all-action midfielder that Robson was.
Er lads, Human Traffic was also dogshit (apart from the soundtrack).
The only decent clubbing movie that has been made was American and that was 'Go' (Doug Liman), which of course wasn't really a clubbing movie, it just had lots of scenes leading up to and during a night's clubbing.
What I most remember about Robbo is he managed to get a side that had Ravanelli, Barmby, Juninho and probably a load of other expensive buys on huge wage packets relegated and also the time the 'Boro chairman had to get Terry Venables in to 'help out' (ie manage the fucking team). That and Robbo's (alleged) 12-can case of Budweiser a night habit.
But yeah - you're right - Keane was even more woeful.
Pearson? Managers don't deserve manager of the year just for keeping a promoted team up, it happens every year almost, in fact there have been managers who've taken teams as weak as Leicester's to higher positions in their first season in the Premiership (think back: EVERY pundit was tipping Phil Brown's Hull and Pulis' Stoke sides to go straight back down, in fact I even remember an article predicting Stoke would be the weakest side the top flight had ever seen).
Sterling has shot his bolt. Cant see anyone wanting him in the top 4.
Well, £30 million seems to be the minimum figure banded about and he just rejected £100,000 a week, so he's gonna cost what? Close to £60 million for a 4-year deal (assuming £5 million signing and agent fees, which would be likely).
I also cannot really see anyone in the top 4 going for him for that kind of money, except City possibly.
