Who knows the answer to the union jack question?

The blue 'of Scotland' will not be removed.

The union flag is the flag of the United Kingdom, it will not change now just because Scotland has left the union.

It would mean Australia, New Zealand and countless Crown dependencies would also have to change their flags.

Besides, the blue in the union flag isn't even the same shade of blue as that in the flag of Scotland any more.

The only time I'll ever see Morrissey again is if there's a reunion and there won't be one.

It's always good to hear him warble through some Smiths numbers, but fucking hell his solo output from the last 10 years is horrendous.

Let's be honest, Viva Hate, Your Arsenal and Vauxhall and I are his only decent solo albums.

So nothing in the last 20 years really, bar the odd decent track.

I don't give a shit if they vote 'yes' really.

The break-up of the union might be no bad thing in the long run. It might stop British (English) people thinking we're still a superpower who can hold our own and instead see the reality that we need to go all in and start co-operating with our European partners to build a federal Europe that will be as powerful as the US and China to guarantee future prosperity and maintain real power on the world stage.

Stones had an absolute stinker against Liverpool last season.

Looked way out of his depth, although experience will probably improve his positional sense and reading of the game.

Mystic Smalls strikes again.

Mystic Smalls - as certain as a no-show on the board from Fadas when United aren't romping the league.

They've proven last season that despite all the "we do things the United way" bollocks, they'll sack managers after one season just like Chelsea ... so will Van Gaal even have time to do an improvement job?

Pretty sure he'll be given time that Moyes wasn't given.

He has the reputation behind him that Moyes didn't.

Plus, who could they go for to replace him? Ancelotti is successful at Madrid, Klopp doesn't appear to see his future away from Dortmund. Would Simeone take it on when he can't speak a word of English and is basically God at Atletico Madrid? Who does that really leave?

Rooney isn't Captain material. He's no leader and he is the first to disappear.

I actually thought, as I have said before, van Gaal is a seriously good manager until I read about him making Rooney captain.

Seriously ridiculous decision and everyone (even United fans I know) can see that.

He's a petulant fucker who doesn't lead by example, and mostly seems to lose his head and scream at people for not playing the right ball. Not a leader in the Vincent Kompany or even John Terry league.

Serious questions about Man United after the first couple of games of the season:

1. Will van Gaal's 3-5-2 work with the players he's got?
2. They look very slow and ponderous. Will signing Di Maria alone solve that?
3. Is Fadas going to go missing for a year again now?

Interestingly, actually scrolling to the bottom of most reports would reveal the answer.

Including the BBC's:

Fadas, why don't you do some riffing on your relationship with your wife?

Then we'll get Jules to do 'the accent'.

Rhouses - that's the kind of post someone who enjoys one seafood dish a month would make ie probably you.

It's like saying lamb is better than beef which is better than pork.

Why not just eat them all, you mong?

Smallman, if you're ever in China and looking at a menu without pictures or English on it, the vocabulary you need is 龙虾 'Long xia', which literally translates as 'dragon shrimp'.

Yes, that's right, that's what the Chinese call the lobster.

Dermo, the crab claws Flaresy will have been referring to will not have been fresh crab claws but will have been the frozen variety made with shrimp paste, bought from a Chinese supermarket and lobbed in the microwave at his local takeaway.

Being from some Guangdong (Canton) backwater before arriving in the UK as bonded labour, I expect they will have transliterated this dish as Yeung Hai Kim rather than the Standard Mandarin Niang Xie Qian.

Hope that clears things up.

Millsy, have you ever done pretend-you're-working-on-a-laptop beers?

Even better than train beers for solo ruin.

Chelsea must be the least respected club and bunch of scrote fans in the whole of the UK.

At least Rangers have won stuff down the years.

Signing Off was a very good album.

They say every band has one good album in them.

Are we sure DR is an Indian? He sounds very South Beach Kardashian to me..!


I've just set fire to a pair of Y3s, a pair of Forest Hills and a silk 'school striped' Thomas Pink tie.

For being the same colour scheme as Rhouses' latest trabbs.

I once made the mistake of walking into one of those skater shops. I was greeted with a wall of what looked like corrective shoes and a couple of Eastpak bags each priced at the rather competitive £659.99. The clientele was mainly teenagers and their bewildered parents. And what's with the assistants in these places? I swear the one that walked up to me was from Mad Max. He had those horrendous earhole things in and I almost vomited on him out of principle. Nice enough chap though and was kind enough to let me know where the nearest burtons menswear was.

LOL. Assuming you mean Burton the ultra rad skateboard brand.
