  1. Does BEIN's rights cover Saudi Arabia though? If it doesn't then this would be the same as France getting upset with people watching British Sky there. Allowing piracy is one thing but why should they tolerate them if they don't have those rights.
  2. Yes Gemmill...

    She was Arnie's girlfriend in Twins - I think that her most memorable.
  3. Yes Gemmill...

    No, you're right, it was that relegation fight year - I think he equalled it and it was 7 games. The record was later broken by Sir Les in 95.
  4. Yes Gemmill...

    I'm actually quite saddened by Charlton's death though I understand he's had dementia for a while so sometimes it's a bit of good thing if they go. I hated him when he was our manager, I'm honest enough to say and was glad he left. Then a few years later I say him speak at my mate's cricket club dinner and he mentioned that despite playing his entire club career for Leeds, there was only one club team he would get out of his seat for when they scored and that was us. I think the contrast with his "Mister Man United" brother was what made the comment for me.
  5. Coronavirus

    I've left the house properly for the first time since the 4th of March and travelled into London to spend the weekend with my lass. The train was fine at this time of day as I'd planned but I walked from Liverpool Street to Barbican which stressed the fuck out of me due to the proportion of non-distancing cunts. Hotels are a bit of a fuck on but they seem to have it sussed generally - I might see how the restaurant experience is later.
  6. Two kids who'll come on for a traumatic debut at 6-0 down.
  7. I get the feeling it's continuing to be on message and act on piracy until the end of the season. At least if it is as "simple" as that it's only another 2 or 3 weeks.
  8. Coronavirus

    "Didn't follow procedures" says the cunt who shook hands with patients, caught the disease and nearly died.
  9. Europe --- In or Out

    One of the indicative votes would have been something like that but lost by a couple of votes - mainly due to the Change UK and lib dems opposing it as it wasn't remainy enough.

    Imagine being happy to see people die for the greater glory of the lads.

    What his cousin's stepdad didn't mention is they're one of the 14 teams going tits up.
  12. NUFC Pictures - from days of old.

    It was a bit early for the scouse hatred for me but I remember a few tears at the end.
  13. Politics

    Always disliked him for his brown monarchy tongue - not surprised by this.
  14. Was it the season before last when we did the same and drew 2-2?
  15. That's about his third attempt to spell it - all wrong
  16. Coronavirus

    No, data you have which you have to share is less valuable - its a contract sweetener.
  17. Daft thought - maybe that Masters didn't fancy defending the decision in front of this committee so decided to wait until after it was done. Clutching at straws but you never know.
  18. Coronavirus

    They aren't sharing the pillar 2 data with GPs either - probably a condition of the fucking private contract.
  19. Politics

    It's Trump allover - talk absolute shite which sounds good to the people who support him who'll watch the first story on the news and think "he's sorting it" but will switch off before the analysis (if there is any) takes it apart as nonsense.
  20. I always hoped there was a really junior British bloke on the writing staff that suggested it and has been laughing his cock off ever since.
  21. Precedent Trump

    I have a sneaking suspicion that if he sort of accepts that he'll lose he'll scale up what already looks like a scorched earth policy to do the most damage he can so either he or one of his horrible kids/son in law will have more of a chance against Biden in 2024 if the latter hasn't had the time to undo the damage.
  22. Coronavirus

    It comes back to personal responsibility again though - if I had been going out and about but was told there was a local cluster I'd be more than happy to go back to almost isolation. As I've said before it's about respect/fear of the virus rather than obeying rules.
  23. I realised yesterday I didn't really know who was left in the cup. Now I realise if by some miracle we get through today, we'd have Man U, Arsenal and Chelsea left. What's the fucking point.
  24. Politics

    Problem is like with Blair, in order to keep power you end up toeing the line that doesn't upset the "reasonable" people who are scared of anything major. Not that Blair wanted to do anything major but he could have pushed the boat out a bit beyond the half-decent stuff.
  25. Politics

    I thought the thrust of Peakes remark was that they were training them to see the people they deal with as expendable because of race which is worth a debate. Still stupid to retweet it though as Starmer has obviously taken the nuance-less approach to AS which I can understand.
