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.

Don't forget fitting in losing the FA Cup and League Cup final in the same season.

LOL, same here!

He's manager of the year to me - he balances the books like the best of them.

How Jose won manager of the year having bagged the double is beyond me.

World's gone mad.

It would've been a shock if he hadn't have won the league, Koeman has done a genuinely incredible job and deserves it far more.

Allardyce will be massively motivated to beat Newcastle, I wouldn't be surprised at all if West Ham turn them over.

It is the entire point of football, there's nothing hysterical about it.

What a joke, eh?

My Cyrus Series 7 CD player hasn't worked properly for two years and I get it back tomorrow fully reconditioned by Cyrus. Just finished a load of shit in the house and all my CDs go back up at the weekend too (alphabetical and / or compilation series order, natch). I can't fucking wait.

First up is gonna be The Winning Ticket, not heard that in ten years.

I'm sure Gary Megson's available

They played Space Face as their final song at the last gig I went to, it is one my favourite live music moments ever. Fucking superb.

Will give it a whirl.

Black Rivers' album is as good as anything The Doves have done, a little bit more electronic if anything.

I am embarrassed for him, he's in the industry and should really know better.

Some of his musical opinion is excellent, but like his football opinion, some of it is diabolical.

No, it's not really like that at all  ... genre classification describes the sound and style of the music.  "Hipster" is more of a cultural term, not really linked to any one type of music.

It's still wrong.

I tend to wait till the film has been on a few weeks as you don't get as many dickheads in the cinema, when we went to see Avengers we had to put up with two stupid girls giggling and chatting through most of the film

I can't believe you're criticising the audience at a cinema whilst watching Avengers.  You get what you deserve right there - a fucking shit-fest.

Music is about opinions, Grant.

If someone comes along with one, you can't really respond like this without looking bitter or hateful.

I've argued about music matters with NCable recently, in the Maceo Plex vs Metallica debate.  But I would never take anything said as personally as you seem to and reply like this.

"Dismal hipster shit" isn't really an opinion, is it?

Yes, just as much as "always great live" is.

The Doves were always great live - saw them at Brixton Academy a few times - bang out their hits early doors and then play a load of gems from the their albums and b-sides.  Not in a Sparklehorse way.

Only got onto this after joeyp mentioned it in The Arches thread.  Heard the album for the first time yesterday, had another go this morning and it's excellent - went to see when they were playing London and it turns out it was at XOYO last night.  Shit-house.
