Re: RIP Diego Maradona

Personally , I think Pele was better but that's just opinion.....different era's, different styles etc . Nearest England have had was Gascoigne . Shame he tarnished his career with that goal but necessary great , helping Napoli do the near impossible . Far more footage of Katarina over Pele so far e...

Re: The Jam some good songs but rather boring imho

Hear me now you Jam haters! (only kidding, your entitled to your opinions .... sort of) As a kid I really loved The Jam, all their singles back then in the 70’s were such great songs and great examples of mature songwriting for someone so young as Paul Weller. I bought most of the singles but only ...

Re: RIP Sir Sean Connery sad news and loss.

Did some excellent films . My fave would be Man who would be king then Robin and Marion . Not a Bond fan , in fact only ever seen Connery and Moore in the role , never bothered with the rest as IMO if you've seen one Bond film you've seen the lot , but it's what he will be remembered for mostly . W...

Re: Things you fecken hate..........

The word " narrative " . Everything you hear these days is fucking narrative . Well , fuck off . Anyone saying narrative should be given a damned good thrashing .

Re: Who is britians best ever punk band!

I was/am a big follower of punk and have been since around 1978 . The first wave of bands were very innovative , but a lot moved on elsewhere very quickly or disbanded after a brief flirt with fame , for some maybe punk was a flag of convenience to achieve wider fame . There were bands in that first...

Re: Who is britians best ever punk band!

A lot here are missing the second &third generation of punk bands . Maybe of the first if you say Stranglers and Jam dubious , Pistols and Clash contribution to punk limited , one and two albums respectively , The Damned also quickly moved on . I'd say of the first then Buzzcocks , Chelsea and U...

Re: The Jam some good songs but rather boring imho

The thing with very early punk is that there wasn't a uniform . Forget the clothes and the Jam were punk through and through . Great singles band and unlike The Clash , Weller knew when to call it a day , when the band were heading into sounds that weren't The Jam. Punk, mod or whatever......great b...

Re: Last book read

A new history of Leeds United . Covers all including Bielsa era so far . Only disappointment to a previous one (1989ish I think ) is it doesn't have stats , tables or players etc . Purely a season by season review . Got the 2029/20 season Champions book on order too .

Re: Is BUT the death of Facebook?

Forgive my ignorance but what is BUT? I was going to ask the exact same thing ...........from the answer though , let's hope so , but I fear BUT will be long gone before Faceshite . Given events this year ............. Maybe 2 or 3 left in this , we can't dwell on the past forever , can we ? I don'...
