I read an article about why we don't have 'troffs' as the Manc calls them.
Its to do with the psychology of standing with your cock out right next to other men, stage fright (the time it takes you to start pissing) is much reduced with our urinals, making people piss quicker and therefore less queuing.

Plus no one wants to feel the splashback of the massive bloke you're shoulder to shoulder with at the troff, who's blasting out 12 pints of hot carling.

Cant remember where I read it but it was gripping stuff.

Edit: Found it in case anyone is interested in urine:

You’ve gone up in my estimation lad. Proper intellectual 😁

This... he's a complete fucking hypocrite.
TBF Catalonia is one of the richest places in Spain. It's hardly a struggle of poor oppressed people. Though what the police did there with the arrests is brutal.

But I agree that his support for certain states is abhorrent they are distinctly separate issues with you can easily support one and not the other. You can easily support the rights of Catalan politicians and hate the guts out of minorities and women.

Furthermore, there is a difference between caring about what's happening in your own region than caring about situations outside of it. Guardiola is Catalan, he would see it as part of fighting for his own situation, his own nation. It's a very different thing to support others struggles than your own perceived struggles.

In any case guardiola, who is a fantastic manager, hardly paints himself as some wonderful human being. But I really don't see his actions as hypocritical but just unethical!

I've been to most of the champs league games at WHL and Wembley, but the Seville game was something different. Singing down the high road, the pubs were mad. Think we had pretty much lost the tie after 20 mins, but the fans stayed with the team. We drew on the night, lost by one goal over all. I remember the chant of "4 times, we only need to score 4 times". Those that were there will remember.
I always go back to this game for one of the best recent atmospheres at the lane. Place was rocking, we sang Martin Jols for about 30 mins none stop.. I had no voice by the end of that game. Was a corker

Agreed. No matter how much they may have suffered in the past (which, to be fair, they have) I can’t bring myself to have any fellow-feeling with Man City fans. I know they're only human, but their loyalty comes with an association with one of the most appalling and despicable sets of people (in the loosest sense of the word) in the world and they, as a fanbase, have directly benefited from that regime. For me, that makes them complicit. My apologies to anyone who thinks that may be harsh, but that's the way I see it.

I’ve been asked before how I’d react if that sort of oil slaver bought Spurs and started pouring money in to win us titles. In that scenario, I hope I'd have the courage of my convictions. I genuinely believe I would because ultimately the magnitude of what the likes of Man City's owners do regularly, for me, far outweighs any loyalty to a football club. It would devastate me if I had to turn my back on the club I love, but I would have to withdraw my support from any organisation whose owners perpetrate the sort of enormities the Emiratis do.

I cannot get over what Man City do and I can't help but view their supporters as enablers of tyrants. For me, by continuing to support the club, they validate the Emirati's attempts to sportswash their murderous regime.

I do feel a little pity for a Man City fan who chooses to abandon their club on that point of principle, because it can't be an easy decision, given the way that club loyalty comes about and most of them won't have chosen to be associated with human slime. But they still have a choice. And it's not as if they arent' aware of what their owners do. It's unkind, but I can't bring myself to be kind in this situation.



I agree, except with the analysis that Guardiola is a great manager. I will concede that he's good but, in my view, he will never be great if his record of winning is only with clubs with enormous resources. Were he to consistently take the likes of Forest or Derby (I chose those because I have a particular manager in mind) to League or Champions League titles, or he delivers 13 titles for the same team (again, a particular manager in mind) then I'd be willing to argue the case for greatness.

Beyond that, the fact that he prates on about Catalan independence and tries to paint himself as a man of principle while taking the money of a bunch of tyrants and murders totally undermines any possibility of according him respect. If I'm being completely frank, I can't even stand the sight of him.

Sorry guys, went on a bit of an anti-City rant there. There are few things that really elicit outright hatred in me, but City is one of them for what they do to football and what their owners do to innocent people. For me, that club has absolutely no redeeming features - everything about them is tainted. Apologies for the unburdening.
Sorry but can you maybe bullet point actual facts on this regime please.

Agree on Pep and his billions by the way.

Huddersfield fans:

Not too much on the forum about our game. Just some grumbling and the resignation that they might get hammered:

-We could be a laughing stock next Saturday if spurs are on there game

-Laughing stock? The weird thing is no one laughs any more. It's just taken for granted that another defeat will take place. Anything else would be a huge surprise.

Forgive me, COYS, but I’d argue that one is either opposed to oppression or one isn’t.

I’d further argue that Guardiola does try to paint an image of the man of principle as evidenced by his refusal to remove his yellow ribbon when told to by football authorities.

Although I vehemently disagree with the FA’s stance in prohibiting gestures like that, the point is that Guardiola is making the gesture as a symbol of solidarity with Catalonian political prisoners and described it as “a humanitarian gesture”.

I would question the integrity of someone who makes statements about humanitarianism on national and international media platforms but takes the money of individuals who engage in the bombing of civilians in Yemen, who perpetuate the oppression of women and gays, who forcibly disappear dissenting voices (the equivalent of those the Spanish have jailed in Catalonia), who conduct extrajudicial murder, who codify serfdom in their labour laws through their kafalah system.

If claiming to stand on the side of humanitarianism while your living is funded by those who are fundamentally opposed to it isn’t rank hypocrisy, I struggle to think what is...

What I haven’t seen anyone mention is just how pathetic their support was. Barely audible. Contrast that to what would have happened if we were playing Dortmund for example.

Plastic fans of a plastic club.
You cant polish a shite.

Give a scumbag the winning lottery ticket, and they are still a scumbag but with money.

You forgot the most horrid reason that Guardiola is a ****.

According to claims, he never visited his former assistant and successor at Barcelona, Tito Vilanova who tragically died of cancer in 2014. That for me is unacceptable and just shows what kind of bellend we're dealing with here.

Nah fuck City. Disgraceful owners and club. However, theres something semi respectable about their supporters. Most know they’re plastic and came from money. So for that reason, i’d much rather them win the league than those fucking bin dippers

Interesting that West Ham fans are the only set of fans who appreciate a good stadium when they see one and admit that ours is brilliant.
In all fairness, any football stadium is absolutely brilliant compared to their track stadium.

Expect nothing more, tbh. Pep’s a scum bag. Always has been. Always will be.
