  1. Good - I've always disliked D&D so it's the first one of the new vinyl I've bothered to buy. I'm sorta hoping it may give me a new appreciation
  2. Strange that........not because it isn't a brilliant album - it is, I bought it the day it came out and I’ve loved it ever since! After that they made one half decent album (FTATR) and after that? They pretty much made the same album ever since….to be fair, I can’t think of more than about four good songs since 1982. And there’s the thing…..their live set since 1981 has been Bon Scott era songs, Black In Black songs “FTATR” and maybe a couple off the latest album. AC/DC have made a 37 year career from one LP and a bunch of great songs from when they really were a great band. If AC/DC had played a live set from Back In Black and subsequent albums from 1981 onwards they’d still be playing the small halls UFO / Michael Schenker / Saxon & their other contemporaries are playing now. AC/DC are now Angus & a bunch of guys – almost a tribute band. They pretty much (apart from Black In Black and FTATR) died when Bon did. Strange, finally, because Back In Black isn't even the best AC/DC album..........it just about makes the top 5. RIP Bon Having said that............BITUSA is one of the top selling LPs and it isn't even in Bruce's top 5!!
  3. Mkhitarian hasn't been all that great for Arsenal...............I'm very surprised that Sanchez has been so poor though.
  4. Well, it usually does Liverpool good!! I''d like a new manager now...........fed up of watching crap, even if it's(slightly!)better crap than the Moyes/LVG years. I can live with Utd not winning stuff, I lived with it for nearly 20 years before 1990, but Mourinho is an embarrassment now and it's time he realised that he is the problem.....
  5. I'd like to see Eddie Howe replace Mourinho............I like the guy and he has done wonders. Keeping Mourinho will mean losing De Gea, Pogba, Martial, Rashford, Sanchez and more........and there is no way of rebuilding with the current owners who just take, take, take......
  6. And grew up in Wakefield.............I take it you were there last night?
  7. Oh dear, really? Just how far does your bigotry go? Citeh may have some great players, which do, and play some lovely football but they are also a bunch of dirty buggers..........especially when they're losing it seems.
  8. You were saying?? Chris Smalling!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  9. Ray Wilkins. RIP 194 games & 10 goals. Fabulous player. Who could ever forget "that" cup final goal??!
  10. And, tbh, if they hadn't had those stupid rules in the 90s I think Utd could have won it in 1994 or 1995......
  11. You can't exactly blame them for the draw!! Look back at all those European Cups Liverpool fans harp on about........they rarely played a big team til the semis.
  12. Yep, get that but as an armchair fan of many years now (and not ashamed, I paid my dues and am just priced out these days) I don't get those rushes and the majority of Utd fans don't either. That's true for most top clubs btw. Seems there may be a fire sale in the summer, which is ok as a lot of the squad are just not good enough and with the cash already reportedly available Jose should have up to £400M to spend. But he needs to stop pissing people off because he WILL lose the dressing room and if the board back him rather than the players who are good enough it will be a disaster for the club
  13. But you have to admit we are fucking awful at times, even when winning. He really needs to work out how to use Pogba & Sanchez.
  14. It took SAF 4 years to build a team and 7 to win the league.........Jose is doing ok. Jeez.........think what SAF could have done with an oily sugar daddy...
  15. If Jose had gone running up the touchline shouting abuse like that he would have been sent off and be facing a ban. Just sayin'.....
  16. Liverpool, lots of pressing and passing in the second half but no much created. Utd 10/10 in the first half......outstanding.
  17. The great Liverpool sides of the 70s/80s had to grind out wins..........they didn't win every game 4-0 Similarly the great Utd sides 1993-2012. Similarly any great side.
  18. Fair comment.............UTD have plenty of fuckwit fans who feel entitled, no doubt about that but they are usually post-93 fans. It's a shame. However the venom from 93 onwards towards UTD has been ridiculous. I loved that 20 years, it was astonishing and wonderful BUT I certainly don't feel entitled, although I will defend my team/club when necessary. The bottom line? It really is just a game, whatever anyone says. Lots of folks hate Bruce, but fuck them too
  19. Obviously not I'm afraid.....it appears to have coloured your rather biased opinions matey
  20. Frustrated? yep. UTD certainly have good enough players and maybe folks are right that it's Jose's fault, he is a bit rigid.
  21. It's disappointing but at times stunningly good - not enough consistancy but the players need to look to themselves too, it's not all down to Jose. Even so, 2nd in the league, still in the CL & in with a decent chance of winning the FAC........not exactly disastrous.
  22. I do, but you get sick of people rubbishing the club you have loved since you were a kid, especially since much of what is said is total crap by people who who hate UTD.
  23. As a Utd fan since I was 7 (so 45 years now) I hardly think that little jibe is accurate.
