Oh FFS, it pisses me off to have to keep trawling through post after post about ITK to find posts moaning about how this thread has gone to the dogs :(

Seriously though, we've tried several ways of going about it. If we run it like the Gestapo, then we're ****s. If we try to strike a happy medium, then we're ****s and if we let it run riot, we're still ****s.

However we roll and whatever we try, basically, we're gonna be ****s. Then people moan if the words dildo, Nazi, buttplugs, cream cakes or whatever their pet 'issue' is happens to crop up. Others moan if images/video are posted because they use mobile devices and the multi-quoting makes pages a bastard for them. Complaints about avatars, signatures, the permutations of complaints are untold. Some of the moans i've had in my box are astonishing (hehe), please don't use this word, I found that word offensive and so on. It ends up driving you insane (Cue some herbert whose third cousin sixteen times removed went batty in 1834 sending me a PM)

I wish we could keep everyone happy, but we can't and we never will do. So if there's something you don't like about this thread we're sorry, we really are, but however or whatever your magic fix is, it's almost certain that it actually isn't. :(
Well said Sir.

Seriously, it's like the childish crap I get at work. But that's slightly different. They need to be there, it's their livelihood. In most cases they don't have an option, so we have to deal with it and compromise. This is a forum. A bloody good forum. A bloody good forum about a bloody good thing.

It is what it is. If you don't like what it is to such a degree that you have to get on your high horse and publicly moan about it, then laters; you won't be missed. FFS.

(I love it by the way, even though I don't get the chance to post as much as I'd like)

That would be nice, but it's more likely to end up another "Moody Monday" with everyone waiting in anticipation to see who is going to model the new kits, and out steps Dempsey, Ade and JD :D
Reckon it will be Super Jan, The Beast and Bale modelling the new kits.

Him and Emre Can. Both would cover a few positions for now and be epic in the future.
Having read up on him after the initial link, I was quite keen on the prospect of getting Emre Can. A technical skilled midfielder, capable of playing in the advanced role (no 10), but primarily played deeper in midfield. Also capable of operating at the back, having already played LB for Bayern Munich, and CD regularly for their 2nd team. Young, but with huge leadership potential according to a report from our very own Steffen Freund, who managed him at youth international level. There was talk at the time about AVB wanting a couple of utility players in his squad, so Can seemed to fit the bill.
Seems like a more cultured version of Livermore.

Sorry if like me you"ve been watching Vic and Bob, that line gets thrown in from time to time. Realise now it was pretty random.

EDIT: I had no idea the quote I replied to was a girl. I apologise for that (bows head as he shuffles backwards out of room).

It's a real shame that for the first time in however many windows I have no enjoyment in this thread anymore. A few laughs ok but I find myself scrolling quickly through more and more shite each day. Why do people think they have to be the funniest **** on the Internet?

Sorry guys but this is the worst this thread has been and that includes the days when it was run like the Nazi party.


Mmmmmmmmmmmm just imagine A&C in jack boots with a horse whip....................:barefoot:

Add to that young, huge potential its the bell perfectly. He doesn't sound quite as good when you describe him as "a more cultured version of Livermore" though, I prefer to describe him as a young German Steven Gerrard, it scares me less.

I'm guessing that Daws, Friedel and BAE (if he's supposedly staying) will all probably be there for the kit launch as they are all sponsored by UA.

Thanks for almost clarifying..........

Two questions that i have given my limited social life away from SC:

What is a buttplug?

Why the fuck isn't everyman and his dog got a cellphone with 4G by now?

Seen as though we're short of ITK i might as well throw in some banter.

Latest transfer news... Cavani spotted at West Ham!

Oh, no, sorry, Caravan, a caravan spotted at west ham.
You stole that off Twitter.

Tea-leaf.
