Of course, van Gaal is a complete lunatic too, but at least you'll get decent football with him.

I know a fair few United fans who say they wouldn't want Mourinho anywhere near the club.

They might just be toeing the party line/masking disappointment that they didn't actually get him, but I think they're being honest. Shit-on-a-stick football and a complete cunt of a man who's lost his comedy value.

Think Mourinho's losing the plot. Looks a completely different man compared with pre-Madrid.

Burger King breakfasts have always been appalling, strangely.

McDonald's for breakfast, Burger King for lunch, Carl's Jr (Shanghai)/Fatburger (Beijing) for dinner. The 'Triple Crown' as it should be known.

MTV (Europe) in the 90s was boss.

There was clubbing tunes/videos all night from about 1am-5am IIRC. They also had Alternative Nation for two hours on a Sunday evening, which although basically an 'indie' programme would play Chemical Brothers, Lionrock, 808 State, LFO etc - was superb. Prodigy and Leftfield, meanwhile, got regularly played throughout the day.

Did I not mention that I use Parma Ham with Grana Padano shavings on my muffins, BF?

My objection towards McDonald's is their largely shit, unimaginative food and overly salted fries.

Would have to agree, their sausage muffin is the only thing I will eat of their menu though I have to bin the egg as it looks rancid

I have sometimes seen that blue/green effect around a cooked egg yolk. In fact, (I am told, I am not a chemist) it is because eggs contain sulphur which can react with a hot iron pan/grill to create sulphides and sulphates. It is not likely that the egg is rancid. McDonald's have fairly stringent hygiene, much more so than your average 'greasy spoon' would have.

English muffin, Lurpak or other quality butter, ham, an egg, cheese slice.

McDonald's admittedly pull this off fairly admirably (breakfast is really the only thing on their menu I can be bothered with).

Yeah, I'm with you there, Ed.

Slightly more boss, though, is a muffin (English, not American variety).

Not really... see the non-surgically enhanced North Koreans for evidence:

Korean birds are about the roughest of the East Asian birds IMO. Massive faces. Chinese and Japanese are fitter on average.

There are some great new bars and underground nights opened up recently.

G.R.O.T. on Beak Street is a plush gaff with downtempo grime, breakbeat and lush r 'n' b. Justin Timberlake hung out there with Tyler The Creator last time they were both in London.

Parallax Scroll is a converted pub in Hoxton square where djs produce, edit, remix and then play deep progressive beats in on almighty production line simulcast. Renegade beats facility!

Then I'd move on to Lick Your Lips on Old Street, which is the brainchild of Fischerspooner and Todd Terje. Don't forget to wear your spangliest denim or you're not getting in to this trustafarian androgynous orgy seemingly set in a velvet-plastered dungeon.

Finally, take a walk down to Farringdon where you will find Linked MOVEment, the new venture of Orthoscopic Beatssss head honcho Sandy McHugh. It is in a dingy basement under Furness & Teague Solicitors, but it's very much on the right side of the law where it's tunes are concerned! Rumbling bass-heavy tribal breakbeat slams off the concrete walls, while a single naked electric bulb crackles and fizzes, creating an unmatchable ambience for the wretched K-holers dribbling and gurning below. Imagine the 414 with more casualties and crackheads.

Happy clubbing!

Yeah, it's shit and pointless. I just ended up getting frustrated by the total apathy towards the scene and what was actually being played.

These days I would just rather go the pub or to a gig (Beijing does at least have a punk/alt-rock scene where the locals behave like real people who are into the music and a bit different).

This is unfortunately symptomatic of clubbing in Asia.

I used to go regularly to White Rabbit and Lantern in Beijing. White Rabbit used to bring in people like Ben Klock but couldn't survive and was never full because there was no velvet rope/bottle service type shit and therefore the only people who would go down were foreign expats in t-shirts and beat-up trainers. You can't survive central BJ rents if you're only bringing in 60 or so expats who buy maybe 6 bottles of beer each (on average) throughout the night. Lantern was the other extreme. They had decent djs but utter fucking cunts hanging around on the edge of the dancefloor, not there to enjoy the music but just there to show off that they were in a place that is seen to be 'in fashion', ordering bottle after bottle of champagne and then vomiting in the bogs, requesting cheesy hip hop be played and clumsily bumping around the dancefloor not knowing what the fuck they're doing (one example, a Chinese bloke in a suit 'dancing' by thumbing through a wad of notes thinking it would attract the German birds me and my mates were dancing with - hilarious and sad).

Not actually that many stickers is it? Probably about 100 swaps if we're talking about a 7 year old child's fist.

As soon as BedRob piles in here, btw, it's over - deleting the thread.
