hmm

Massive face loss. Proof I can't mix it with the senior members.

Boring, you are a senior member in my eyes. Not just because you nearly had the big C either.

I think Durgals are banned under the new regime.

Cheers Dave. I appreciate the sentiment but like Fadas I don't post in GU Music so my prog credentials can never be validated.

I'm not a senior member but I believe Glen has escaped on a technicality - the captain can only be used if the thread is a repeat.
Saying that, it's a nonsensical convention given that Captain is an abbreviation of Captain Yesterday.

Dave should have played safe and went for a Durgal.

Is Loopy clearing out all his unread threads after coming home from a holiday?

I thought people only did this with work e-mail?

Didn't Spurs's Gary Lineker throw a hissy fit because he got subbed for Alan Smith?

There was never any need to stop. Everybody else just did it via PM so they didn't look bad.

My favourite was the person wanting to know my real name - "What does it matter, you're dying anyway."

Always fancied one in the Red Admiral, in Hulme (inner city Manchester). Never had reason (nor the balls) to go in though.

There's nothing to fear in a Flat Roof Pub. If you're feeling a little nervy then challenge one the locals to a relaxing game of pool. Be sure to ask how many shots they play on the black and then insist upon the opposite - they love that.

ETC, next time you're going to Loftus Road stop off at the Kenilworth Castle on Latimer Road for a pint of watered down Fosters, warm. If you time it right you might catch the Saturday night disco.

£8.5m for Remy. It looks like they've learnt from Torres/Caroll debacle.

Skylight -  5/10

Good in parts but a bit too lefty for me.
Mulligan's performance was disappointing.
Nighy was spot on with his comedy timing.

Oh come on. You're a Liverpool fan proliferating unfounded rumours of people looting dead bodies. Surely you can see the irony of that.

Pro-Russian separatists preventing access to the site and looting the dead. Fucking scumbags.

Reports that they've also removed 38 bodies from the site and are destroying evidence. Fucking hell.

dutchy, you're a Liverpool fan - repost that on RAWK and see what happens.

A man with a cannibalism fetish planned to kill a 14-year-old girl with an axe before eating her, a court heard.

Nurse Dale Bolinger, 57, used the online Dark Fetish Network (DFN) to discuss beheading and eating women and girls for sexual gratification, Canterbury Crown Court was told.

Hannu, can you lock this thread and the Stay of Execution one. I'm thoroughly bored of all this (but feel compelled to click on anything with a green square).

Sportswear giant Adidas has signed a £750m deal to make Manchester United's kit for 10 years from next season.

The huge sum involved is only £40m less than the Glazer family paid for the club in 2005.

It begs the question - would Adidas have been better off buying the club 10 years ago?

I imagine Adidas knew a lot more about merchandising and enter new markets than the Glazers did. I also suspect they would have been able to borrow at far lower interest rates.

Not sure if there would be any conflict of interest rules laws applicable.
