    I remember being genuinely nervous all week leading up to these sort of games in the past and I really miss that. I think the knowledge that we were almost certainly going to go through the motions like we did last night, the contempt the club has for its fans, not being able to go to the ground and the lack of direction we have in general just makes it impossible to get emotionally invested in it. What if we did win it? We'd only waste all the money anyway. Arteta and Edu's recruitment has been dreadful and KSE haven't the first clue about how to run a football club. It's easy to

    Absolutely pathetic to the point of being almost funny. Just need to limp through to Christmas before putting Arteta out of his misery now.

    Good thing this isn’t a European semi final or it would be really sad.
  4. I wish more bio-pics would take wild dramatic license with the material. It seems like a no-brainer when the artists have spent their whole professional careers creating a larger than life public image to just role with it and make something big and fantastical. Prince did it a couple of times with Purple Rain and Sign o' the Times – admittedly the second is a live show, but kind of strung together with vague narrative. I remember watching Get on Up the James Brown one and thinking it was a missed opportunity. They skirted the line between fact and fiction so it was just a plod through his car
  5. Grease is another great musical I refuse to believe everyone doesn't like. It's quite unsavoury and rough around the edges but like in a good way, and mainly it's just a lot of fun. You're so used to seeing it parodied and hearing it at DJ Dave's mobile disco you forget every single frame is completely iconic. Travolta is absolute box-office too. While we're on the topic, Bohemian Rhapsody on the other hand is crap. It does that thing I hate where they reimagine what must be quite long and complicated moments in history and package them up in such a way that makes everyone look ama
  6. Kylie had a nice redemption story of going from Stock, Aitken & Waterman tosh to universally enjoyed and pretty interesting pop, whereas Madonna went the complete opposite direction. Everything she's made in the last probably 20 years has been dire. I'd always wanted to start a discussion on who was better: Madonna in the 80s, Mariah in the 90s, Beyonce in the 2000s and Robyn in the 2010s, but didn't because the answer was probably Roisin Murphy and we'd all squabble.
  7. I will say Ghost Song by The Doors is pretty good though. Jim Morrison’s ridiculous poetry seems alright when it’s just plonked on top of the noodly disco jazz-funk light whatever was left of the band decided to pair it with.
  8. I've not added it to them but it's quite straightforward through the distributor I use. I'll pop it on this weekend.
  9. Haha, thanks. Might be a bit of a step down for them though!
  10. I think it’s important that they stick to the essence of the original content which is having every single last episode involve Fred worrying about getting fired from work and then that not happening in the end.

    All worth it to see that Spurs reject getting a red as they’re stretchering his old arse off the pitch. Would watch again.

    Fuck me have this lot being doing glue on the bus.
  13. When I said white people make bad music it was just trying to be a provocative statement. The wider and more accurate statement is that lots of credit is given to white artists for revolutionising music and inventing genres and whatnot, and a lot of the time the absolutely crucial involvement of black culture is just missed out entirely. Now, I don't think that's as bad as it used to be, but it's certainly a thing. When Elvis' music is described it's still 'the clean and holy sound of Bluegrass mixed with the gritty low-down Blues' or some such. I mean we can all read between the lines. Look a

    The way he's gone about it certainly isn't filling me with confidence and it just seems like a load of PR from where I'm sat. I find it very difficult to believe Vieira and to some extent Henry would be part of it too. Big Pat has been firmly part of the City machine in his post-playing days and incredibly distant from the club, and Henry wants to be a head coach so it makes zero sense to be on this theoretical board at Arsenal. Swapping one billionaire for another shouldn't be anyone's ambition because there's looming problems for all clubs that it won't solve. In any case I think Kroenke wou
