Seven pages in and the Swansea thread has been completely hijacked into a BRC one. Harry has it right time for everyone to take a brisk walk outside in the rain to wash away the nasty taste this thread has got.

Erics Inner Monologue using Fergie-style distraction techniques as United manager and team escape Scot-free.


You're a one. Life must be very frustrating for you if you get so wound up about stuff like this. FOOTBALL. DISGRACE. SHAME. YAWN. It's pantomime season, Nef. Just go with it.

More documentaries on the varying pitches of foghorns and From Our Own Correspondent.


When Radio 4 does sport in a proper Radio 4 style, it is fantastic. " Touchline Tales ", for instance, is genius. The non-sport version, " Freedom Pass " was on on Christmas Eve and that is brilliant as well.

'Assisting in amputations'
Wow.

I'll admit to hastily switching off / tuning into Classic FM/ R5L whenever the Archers or one of those hideous short plays comes on.

But we all know it's entirely different for fans of smaller clubs, and in particular you ton-ton. You're so special, that we await your dismissive utterances, like lowly dung beetles look forward to the visit of a particularly incontinent elephant.


The thread wasn't about your stuck-up superior plastic BRC shit or "your" tedious wanker of a manager fellated as some kind of psychological genius by the morons who pass for senior football journalists.

It's the same fucking shit over and over and over and it doesn't stick to its own little backwater of "wank off over Murdoch's cash" - it pollutes every fucking thing about the sport we love and you haven't the slightest fucking clue about.

The problem here of course is the amount of coverage the Premiership gets in proportion to us mere mortals down in the lower leagues.

People like me can probably have just as much as an ‘opinion’ as a follower of the BRC’s who watch it on MoTD or live on Sky.

As for Williams we’ll never know what he intended and he’ll never tell the truth. As for the rest I tend to switch over before they interview the managers because it’s all tedious bollocks. Fuck, I don’t even read or listen to Graham Turner anymore.

But anyway fair play to Swansea. Eight years ago Shrewsbury beat them 2-0 at the old Gay Meadow.

Mind you they went down to 9 men before we managed to score the first.

How do you know he hasn't?

And we do know what he intended, don't we? He intended to boot the ball at Van Persie's head. Still, no biggie. No one died. Someone nearly died though, obv.

It is UNBELIEVABLE that a thread about Swansea City drifted into a discussion about Man United, for no other reason than the teams playing each other shortly after the thread started and producing a major talking point. It just defies sense!

Sometimes, in football, people like to talk about what happens on the pitch. It's weird I know.

It's pretty tedious, but one can put up with it when it's actually talking about something real, and not some pseudo-incident wanked up by over-indulged maniacs and overly indulgent hacks.

And plastics.

I've never understood when people go crazy about an internet thread drifting a bit off topic. This one started off as Swansea v Newcastle, then it turned into Swansea v Man Utd, and today a Newcastle fan brought it full circle to Man Utd v Newcastle, by noting that Ferguson had lost his rag again for the second time in four days. And so what? Nobody's week has been ruined as a result.

I once started a topic about the wretched AA Gill and his leisure pursuit of shooting baboons for the hell of it in Tanzania. Within a few pages -- not unamusingly -- it had been consumed by a succession of people swapping their favourite recipes involving certain species of wildlife. Now that's a thread hijack.

Hey! Some of the greatest art of all time has been created by over-indulged maniacs.

yes, of course you can. As long as your opinion amounts to a little bit more than periodically passing judgement on the people who partake in such threads.
