  1. My Mrs loves it, so we both watch it. Quite enjoy it really. Can't say I could do ANY of the eating challenges
  2. My allergy has suddenly come back. These guys are so hard to replace
  3. It would end up like our pool league, as money would talk.... We'd be playing Man Utd away one week, followed by Man Utd C and Man Utd B at home.
  4. A Matter of Life and Death, with David Niven.
  5. Which one Gem, 1950's or 1990's? Either way, I think the 1950's one was groundbreaking. But watching it now may not be as rewarding, as the concept has been done to death since.
  6. Watched the 1949 Whisky Galore at the weekend. Not seen it since I was a teenager. Enjoyed it so much more now, as I actually enjoy whisky :) Can't believe Gordon Jackson's been dead 25 years!
  7. Just checked IMDB, last major film was The Good Shepherd in 2006. He's 72 now, so probably taking it easy. Fantastic in Goodfellas, Casino and Home Alone 1&2.
  8. So glad you've gone.... such a plastic
  9. I do think he gets a fair amount of support from some pundits, although it's usually followed by a "but". Shearer loves him, I'm sure he see's himsrlf in him. He, of course, rarely got criticised when acting in a similar way. Even Keown gave a veiled compliment after the Arsenal game.
  10. Probably posting on it too, although strangely, this account was registered this month!
  11. How did he do yesterday, I've only seen the highlights on MOTD?
  12. I think it's time we got behind this guy. Yes, he's part of the problem when we get to the box and just tap it round to the other side, but that's not entirely his fault, I think he's being managed that way
  13. My point entirely. Put a free kick, angled, over the top like that. It's perfect. As Zola did, so many times. The keeper can't go for it, as he'd leave an open goal with ANY contact. Horrible to defend. Willian's got it right this season, on that front. Jammy he is not. Oscar got a similar one, but I think (from his reaction) that it was a cross.
  14. A touch underated this season, probably because we've lost a lot of the games he's scored in. His free kicks have been very Zola-ish. Does that mean they are strange?
  15. That's really sad. The way he destroyed England in the 1970 World Cup filled me with awe as a 10 year old, even if he made Peter Bonetti look daft.
  16. I posted these on facebook, along with my favourite about the 'heavy shirts'. One of my Liverpool supporting FB friends commented that he felt "Brendan looked like he was close to a nervous breakdown". I tend to agree.
  17. Typical self rightous lot. Sad day for me though, I've never enjoyed a thread more. Can anyone list his trophy haul whilst at this huge club, full of heavy shirts?
