"At Christmas I no more desire a rose Than wish a snow in May's new-fangled mirth; But like of each thing that in season grows."

Quote from: bgmnts on September 13, 2021, 02:02:51 PMOr i was being ironic but who could possibly know? It's likely I do really enjoy people hurting themselves badly and it turns me on. I wish I meant as much as you though :(
Quote from: holyzombiejesus on September 13, 2021, 08:35:03 PMWe had a similar season when we used loads of keepers. It was after our chairman had engineered the resignation of Rob Page by telling him his playing budget had been slashed by 50% (it hadn't). Page left, chairman advertised for a replacement and Jose Mourinho rang him, recommending his friend Bruno Ribeiro and hinting we'd be given first dibs on loads of promising Manchester United 'youngsters'. The United youth were not forthcoming so our chairman decided to buy a load of players from European 2nd and 3rd tiers, all touted by the same agent who doubled as a Coca-Cola importer. Some that we signed arrived in the UK, took a look round Burslem and then asked for their contracts to be cancelled. We got through 49 players that season (think we actually played Altrincham pre-season), got relegated and, just when things couldn't get any worse, gave Michael Brown the manager's job.

Quote from: Holmesy on September 14, 2021, 11:20:58 AMI'd maybe look up the word irony in a dictionary because you obviously don't know what it means you absolute fucking cock.

Quote from: monkfromhavana on September 14, 2021, 11:23:06 AMThink every club has a season like that. We had one in our earlier days in the Championship where we had Inter Milan loanee Raffaele Nuzzo let in 5 goals in a league cup game against Tranmere and all 5 were his fault. One of those players who technically "played" for Inter but was actually about 64th choice goalie and spent all his time on loan at Italian 15th tier clubs. We then got in Frenchman Fabien Debec who wasn't quite as hopeless but still 8th tier French football. Then we plumped for a 38 year-old Spanish goalie who hadn't played a game in about 3 seasons.Up front we had Angolan centre forward, Christian Yulu (never played again) and many, many more hopeless foreign signings.
Quote from: The Lurker on September 15, 2021, 11:38:19 AMYeah, I've watched the first two. Bit dull so far, I thought. Very Man United-centred. I mean, David Beckham is being interviewed about seasons that happened before he even turned professional.
Quote from: The Lurker on September 15, 2021, 11:38:19 AMNot exactly exclusive stuff either as Eric Cantona has definitely said in several interviews that he wished he kicked the Palace fan even harder. Had no idea the fella he kicked attacked a load of people in the court case so that was quite interesting.
