Goths in Home & Away in my lifetime (darraghmac), Sunday, 5 December 2010 12:40 (eight years ago) link

need nominations for a a poll of players upon whom commentators confer the hororific 'big' like

chrissy samba
richard dunne
emile heskey
john carew
john hartson

afaict it's a special honour awarded to players with a certain special aura of solemn clumsiness cuz it's seldom applied to dider drogba for instance

~honorific~

might also write some horrorfic about big ryan nelsen and big chrissy samba savagely killing a passing brontosaurus

basically martin o'neill's managerial career was a cover for capturing and taming these strange creatures, for reasons still unknown cuz the cia called time on the program due to cost overruns

1606: GOAL Tottenham 1-0 Man Utd (Van der Vaart Penalty)

― Sgt's Laughter (Sgt. Biscuits), Sunday, 16 January 2011 16:07 (2 weeks ago)

Spurs goal Absolutely fucking shocking. Bit of head tennis in the United penalty area and the ball falls for Gareth Bale, who takes a touch after collecting Crouch's deflected flick on from Modric's centre and rifles a shot towards Kuszcsak's goal. The United goalkeeper saves well but spills it and dives in at Bale's feelt, completly upending the Welshmen. It's a definite penalty. He. Must. Be. Absolutely. Thick. As. Fuck. Rafael van der Vaart steps up to confidently stroke it past Kuszskasks's despairing dive.

― Sgt's Laughter (Sgt. Biscuits), Sunday, 16 January 2011 16:11 (2 weeks ago)

1614: Dimitar Berbatov puts Wayne Rooney in with a slide rule pass, but the inept potato-faced little cunt can only slash hopelessly wide.

― Sgt's Laughter (Sgt. Biscuits), Sunday, 16 January 2011 16:15 (2 weeks ago)

From MancFan on Twitter: "Just put dinner in the oven and settling down to watch the match. Get in!"

― I see what this is (Local Garda), Sunday, 16 January 2011 16:15 (2 weeks ago)

1618: Wilson Palacios embarks on a magnificent, rampaging individual run and is crudely brought down by Michael Carrick. It's a terrible challenge by the former Spurs man and his wife will be literally unable to look at his contemptible, rodent-like face without being physically sick. Rafael van der Vaart fires the resultant free kick straight at Kuzczszak.

― Sgt's Laughter (Sgt. Biscuits), Sunday, 16 January 2011 16:21 (2 weeks ago)

1632: Presumably nothing whatsoever happens for 14 minutes. You may think I went to get a cup of tea but more likely our Content Production System broke (again) or I had to fill out five editorial clearance forms to make a witty comment. Those of you who watch Match of the Day or follow other streams will know there were three penalty shouts, a two footed tackle, and a goalmouth scramble during this time.

― I see what this is (Local Garda), Sunday, 16 January 2011 16:24 (2 weeks ago)

From StepneyGaz via text: "I'm in the middle of my final exam to be a doctor, but can't resist craftily checking the score on my mobile! Utd to win 2-1."

Not a bad predo Gaz, we shall see.

― Sgt's Laughter (Sgt. Biscuits), Sunday, 16 January 2011 16:29 (2 weeks ago)

1629: Wayne Rooney finds himself in space on the right, but can only drag a hopeless, aimless ball across the front of Heurhelho Gomes' goal. Oh dear, oh dear. Watching that back on the replay, you have to think his whole family must be crying with rage at his performance as they watch this, quietly wishing to themselves that he had been killed when he was a younger man.

― Sgt's Laughter (Sgt. Biscuits), Sunday, 16 January 2011 16:32 (2 weeks ago)

1637: ROONEY STARE! MAN UNITED Wayne Rooney looks at a section of Tottenham supporters and his face instantly causes several thousand people to melt, killing them instantly. This is one of the worst disasters ever to happen at a football game. Try telling that to Alex Ferguson though! He will be absolutely delighted.

― I see what this is (Local Garda), Sunday, 16 January 2011 16:35 (2 weeks ago)

1638: Things getting a little feisty here, as Patrice Evra and Raefael surround Aaron Lennon and beat him into a coma with Luka Modric's left shin. I should point out that Modric's leg had already been severed during an earlier clash with Michael Carrick. Mike Dean facing a job to keep a lid on things at the moment - still goalless at White Hart Lane.

― Sgt's Laughter (Sgt. Biscuits), Sunday, 16 January 2011 16:40 (2 weeks ago)

1643: Noel Gallagher appears to be in the stands. However it's not a happy day for the former Oasis man, as he appears to have soaked himself in urine and is ranting delusionally about a noise nobody else can hear. Try telling thtat to Alex Ferguson though! The Man United boss will be delighted.

― I see what this is (Local Garda), Sunday, 16 January 2011 16:42 (2 weeks ago)

1645: A fire engulfs most of the away fans end and a tannoy announcement urges fans to head towards the exit. Try telling that to Alex Ferguson though! The Man United boss is hard of hearing.

― I see what this is (Local Garda), Sunday, 16 January 2011 16:44 (2 weeks ago)

mike dean books the stadium announcer for clear attempt to gain advantage by preventing mass slaughter

― all i gotta do is akh nachivly (darraghmac), Sunday, 16 January 2011 16:47 (2 weeks ago)

1651: The game's gone off the boil a bit in the last ten minutes, but there's plenty of entertainment off the field, as fighting breaks out between separate factions of heavily armed ultras near the commentary booth. A stray grenade lands next to TV commentator Martin Tyler's foot, and unfortunately for him - it's liiiiiive. Tyler explodes in a shower of bone and gore, drawing ironic cheers from both sets of supporters. A terrible tragedy for Tyler and his family, but I have to say the look on Andy Gray's face is priceless.

― Sgt's Laughter (Sgt. Biscuits), Sunday, 16 January 2011 16:53 (2 weeks ago)

1658: The game becomes scrappy, prompting a discussion in the office about which biscuit we ate most of in 1997. Custard creams are my vote. Try telling that to Man United boss Alex Ferguson though. You can bet there won't be any biscuits featuring in his halftime teamtalk!

― I see what this is (Local Garda), Sunday, 16 January 2011 16:58 (2 weeks ago)

1659: Half-time Tottenham 0-0 Manchester United
BBC Sport's Phil McNulty at White Hart Lane: "Spurs just shading it but as tight as it gets. Harry Redknapp and Sir Alex Ferguson will demand greater quality in attacking positions after the break."

― Sgt's Laughter (Sgt. Biscuits), Sunday, 16 January 2011 17:02 (2 weeks ago)

"Spurs may be the home team but a word for Manchester United who have gallantly agreed to play away from Old Trafford. Harry Redknapp and Sir Alex Ferguson will have been thinking of the half-time team talks, but ultimately on a cold day in North London it's all about Wayne Rooney's continued reluctance to assume the mantle of United Legend that his talent deserves. Whether it's a dignified refusal to take centre stage or his bashfulness in scoring the goals he is certainly capable of, we can be sure that the second half will bring further intrigue".

― nakhchivan, Sunday, 16 January 2011 17:08 (2 weeks ago)

1714: David Beckham looking on to see his team needing a creative spark. It is that vision that should hopefully convince Mr. Capello to cast aside his foreign ways and let him get the caps he needs to make England great again.

― "jobs" (a hoy hoy), Sunday, 16 January 2011 17:18 (2 weeks ago)

From Hizal9802 on Twitter: "The lads at Nottingham Trent Uni send our regards to BBC Liveblog Legend Stevo, just had a nice bit of banter about seeing this tweet on the BBC!'

Thanks lads, I try to please.

― nakhchivan, Sunday, 16 January 2011 17:20 (2 weeks ago)

From srebrenica_aryan_arkan88 on Twitter: "the ultras in NOVI SAD SERBIA send our <3 to big nemanja vidic, keep on killin it out there brother."

Haha, great banter from those Serb ultra lads – Stevo

― nakhchivan, Sunday, 16 January 2011 17:31 (2 weeks ago)

1737: The look of anguish on Wilson Palacios' face after he skied that shot said it all. Whether it's his brother's prolonged abduction and murder or the pressure of playing in the Champions League, it's been a difficult 24 months for the Honduran.

― nakhchivan, Sunday, 16 January 2011 17:37 (2 weeks ago)

1740: Half-hearted penalty shout as Rafael van der Vaart tries to turn Nemanja Vidic on the edge of the penalty area, and the big Serbian manages to get his wrists locked around the Dutchman's shoulders and execute a flawless Tiger Suplex '85. Haven't seen that one for a while. It only gets a two count, however, and Utd breathe again. Eighteen minutes left on the clock at the Lane, but do of course bear in mind that the title can't change hands on a time limit draw.

― Sgt's Laughter (Sgt. Biscuits), Sunday, 16 January 2011 17:44 (2 weeks ago)

1742: SENDING OFF Rooney, Manchester United The young tyro at full-back trips Bale and he has to go. It's been a brave performance for Rooney who makes up for his lack of skill with the passion you expect from a United Legend.

― nakhchivan, Sunday, 16 January 2011 17:46 (2 weeks ago)

1748: I don't...is this...? This match is threatening to turn into a farce. Javier "Hercules" Hernandez, who was not scheduled to be here, is walking down the tunnel and onto the pitch at White Hart Lane. Fans we apologise for this, w...can we please...can we get him out of here please?

This is not good.

― Sgt's Laughter (Sgt. Biscuits), Sunday, 16 January 2011 17:52 (2 weeks ago)

1753: Hernandez is just standing there, nodding quietly. Chilling mind games from the big Mexican. It's turned into a real game of human chess out there, in stark contrast to the carnage in the stands, where there are now almost no survivors.

― Sgt's Laughter (Sgt. Biscuits), Sunday, 16 January 2011 17:55 (2 weeks ago)

1754: That's Big Les Ferdinand texting in the stands, his stubby digits worn down by years of pachinko and numbed by cold, he hits the sleek iPhone 4 repeatedly against the skull of Tim Sherwood, who looks to have taken a knock judging by the cerebrospinal fluid running from his nose.

― nakhchivan, Sunday, 16 January 2011 17:58 (2 weeks ago)

1801: Neat! Gomes smothers at the feet of Giggs as easily as Mike Phelan compressing a pillow over the snoring Brian Kidd.

― nakhchivan, Sunday, 16 January 2011 18:04 (2 weeks ago)

1802: A rare foray forward for this depleted United side. Giggs carries it forward in the centre circle and tries to release the isolated Javier Hernandez, but his listless through ball is screwed hopelessly wide of the Mexican and dribbles towards the left touchline. That was just pathetic. Absolutely fucking pathetic. What's the fucking point of this when all you end up with is this deadening, pitiful shit? Fuck off, the lot of you. Just fuck off.

― Sgt's Laughter (Sgt. Biscuits), Sunday, 16 January 2011 18:06 (2 weeks ago)

1807 FULL TIME The cornrows of Benoit Assou Ekotto smothered with the viscera of the late Darron Gibson, United's players to a lap of honour for the travelling fans who saw their brave rearguard action here today. Harry Redknapp will have been disappointed not to have got the superinjunction, but for once his purple complexion today was more the result of shame at his team's sorry performance than the effects of autoerotic asphyxia gone wrong.

A: As tight as Scrooge Mc'Ducks Arse (Contains a duck reference, a Scrooge McDuck reference (a famously stingy character), a common phrase relating to being penny pinching which relates to Arsenals famous policy of no big money signings and also contains the word 'Arse' which features in both the name of the club and it's manager.

true enough about mollycoddling, idk tribal self-mythologising nonsense probably but i've long felt there to be an interesting frisson whenever a top bloke geezer comes under the fannying aegis of the kewpie platonic poodle kennel. and now austin is becoming a hybrid fancyman

plus look no further than former petty thug karl henry now a responsible asthmatic piano playing chessmaster with a penchant for orlebar brown swimwear

thought occurred during wolves birmingham and reminiscing about blues ledges of the mid 90s who i could never tell apart but were thoroughly of the grim piece - grainger, devlin, tait, legg... all unthinkable in a hoops shirt

like hill and derry are the types who anywhere else would do their two year bid or month's loan and become a footnote, here as ott realness darlings we clasped them to our bosom for 5 years until their ears fell off and button eyes came unsewn

hi guys

for the last year and for the first time in my life at thirty whatever (seven i think) ive been involved in a sports team, a load of struggling dept ed penpushers of varying experience and silhouette togging out once a month or more under floodlights against lads with coaches and clipboards and a ref looking on and shaking his head at us

we havent won yet but we havent given up yet. our goalie would rather be our striker, our striker would rather be anywhere else, our best player has forty years done and is likely running down his contract and we're only taking it too seriously in the ten mins before and after when tge blood's up.

highlights include:

- the ref blowing up ten mins early against the prison service and refusing to divulge the score

- getting a man sent off for running away from a fight against the fire service (and being let back on out of pity ten mins later)

- holding justice to a two goal win and running to the bench celebrating as they looked on nonplussed

- our bruiser (seconded to defence since, unrelated) launching into a legbreaker against dept health and the victim berating him while prone with "dyou fuckin know how long the ambulance will leave me waiting once they know who i work for?"

its been a joyous experience, almost totally positive without the pressure of performance or competitiveness and while i wish id done it years ago i think maybe the magic is coming from the maturity in actually enjoying the participation and the camaraderie and all the things that wouldve been and sounded like placatory cant back when we were young enough to care.

are ye sporting yerselves and isnt it great
