I didn't realize Bear didn't post since that last one. I hope he's alright, could be just on holidays or something. I know he was one of very few who seen what happened as a bit bizarre in how things went which was nice.

I thought Denny was taking over, either way this is as good a place as ever to start.

I love Kelly Cates, I'm gutted herself and Ian Wright won't be doing 606 on Sundays anymore, they worked really well together.

To be fair to Kelly Cates, she plays down her Liverpool supporting routes very well. If you didn't know she was Dalglish's daughter I don't think you'd class her as a Liverpool/Scotland supporter.

Probably best I don’t take it. I’d only get in trouble for being mischievous. Or for proliferating the ‘cesspool’.

Still can't quite believe Karl wrote that. Unbelievable really. :fp:

First time I’ve read that. Quite offensive really. Best to take it as a compliment.

I twice typed out, then deleted very angry and wordy responses to the cesspool comment on the basis that I was being a sensitive snowflake. I thought it was a really offensive comment to make about a large portion of the forum's user base. :lol:

From a man who gets upset at the terms 'triggered' and 'SJW' you'd really think he wouldn't go around referring to a large group of people as a cesspool

Can't blame him, everything else at Madrid will be a failure after 3 consecutive Champions Leagues.

he's not wrong though; it seems like this one section of the forum generates most of the complaining and drama (aside from fanboy Sony/Nintendo trolling in the games section).
im not absolving myself of that either :shifty: :fp:

Seems strange to resign now, I thought he'd have wanted to give the league another shot after how awful they were this year. Wonder were he will end up and who will replace him.


Also Frank Lampard has been hired as Derby manager, will be interested to see how he gets on

Imagine if the next boss wins 2 in a row, then loses the third. Fans will be fuming! ;)

he strikes me as an intelligent guy from his interviews and punditry so it will be interesting to see how 'safe' he plays it with his first few matches and selections

He’s fed up with proliferating the cesspool.

He does seem very clued in but then good punditry doesn't also equal good management, just look at Nev but all the best to him and hope he does a good job as he seems like a genuinely good guy which is unusual for anybody related to Chelsea

The problem Lampard (and Gerrard) may have is that they might not understand if a player doesn't put everything into every game, I know Roy Keane had that problem when he managed.
