  1. "I tend to agree"

    tend1 tɛnd/ verb regularly or frequently behave in a particular way or have a certain characteristic. Don't see the problem myself?
  2. Rooney goal tonight

    Not even sure it was a shot tbh, looked like his standard first touch to me
  3. Girlfriend wanted to go to the cinema so I intentionally picked a film that starts at 4:30 so I could watch...
  4. Who is that masked man?

    He had an x-ray/scan yesterday as required for the appeal, and the club knew yesterday afternoon it was rescinded well before it was released today. I don't think there was exactly a media circus around the incident to sway the Fa's decision, personally.
  5. Who is that masked man?

    No, and that's not what I said. I said he had to have one, which he did in response you saying it was all for the media.
  6. Who is that masked man?

    You have to have an x-ray in this situation for the appeal so that's kind of pointless really.
  7. City successfully appeal Taylor sending off (Merged)

    Where did you hear that? It's not what I was told.
  8. City to finish in the top 2 spots?

    This surely makes no sense at all because where you aim has no real bearing on where you actually finish. In fact, you could say your way is worse - if you finish just outside the top 10 after aiming for the top two that'll be a much bigger disappointment and knock to confidence than finishing there after aiming for top 10.
  9. Pick that one out

  10. Steve Bruce

    Some idiot was constantly shouting at him all game, particularly after the handball was given to villa. Bruce turned round and had quite an amicable chat with the guy and it was pretty good natured even though the city fan was being a semi literate idiot. Unfortunately he was clearly in control of the single brain cell him and his mate apparently share as his friend then got up and randomly started sticking both middle fingers up at Steve Bruce. To be fair to him Bruce then basically said "why did you have to do that we were just having a chat" and gave him a very disparaging look, shrugged his shoulders and turned back round. The pair still wouldn't shut up all game so then the stewards turned up and both started looking very sheepish.
  11. What does Lansdown see that most of us can't ?

    That's what I don't understand though. I thought the whole point was to decouple the manager/head coach or whatever from running of the entire club at much as possible, so you could remove one and you wouldn't be rebuilding from scratch, which has happened in the past and stops any long term progression. If we're apparently doing that but one specific man is so integral to the entire project he cannot be replaced it seems to me we've either incorrectly implemented the whole philosophy, or are merely paying lip service to it.
  12. Taylor

    I'm pretty sure it was a wedding with quite a few footballers there if it's what I'm thinking of. Not really surprising he's mates with some gas players still, and they were very supportive of his move so no reason not to be.
  13. Manchester Arena Explosion (Merged)

    Interesting report on the BBC now about this in fact: Very odd...
  14. Manchester Arena Explosion (Merged)

    Interesting picture of the guy is coming out: https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2017/may/23/manchester-arena-attacker-named-salman-abedi-suicide-attack-ariana-grande Some describe him as quiet etc. but others aren't so sure. A couple of bits stood out to me - and I have to wonder why he wasn't confronted or people weren't made aware if some of the things in that article are true? It mentions a senior figure at his mosque gave a sermon strongly criticising ISIS etc. and that while the majority agreed a few (this guy included) didn't like what he he said - so why was this not reported previously?

    Ok, but you have said "enough" for a while now and I have seen this said a number of times, but not so much about what to be done. Many followers of Islam have lived in this country for a number of generations now and consider themselves as British as you or I. I saw someone suggest locking up any criminals entire family - this is literally what North Korea does (for 3 generations I believe, of hard labour for their entire lives even if they weren't born when the crime was committed)... is that really the line we're going down?! I would be asking much wider questions about how we try and integrate cultures, why it is predominantly young men who later on convert to Islam (or this radical interpretation of it) who commit these crimes, about their socioeconomic factors etc. rather than thinking about Islam itself. Maybe if these people felt they had a better lot in life they'd be less susceptible to the brainwashing they undergo. Personally I believe if Islam didn't exist these nutters who orchestrate these things would just find something else to brainwash mentally ill or disillusioned young men through to do their evil deeds. As LB mentioned above, most of these people admit to barely knowing anything about the Koran itself as far as I am aware. Is Islam itself the root cause of this attack?
