I noticed one of the journo's for the times commented how surprised how little discontentment there is amongst the fans at OT; The majority of them probably weren't even huge football fans when they were younger judging by the majority of the people I know who go whilst the majority of knowledgeable reds I know just don't go.
I reckon a lot of United supporters quietly seethe to themselves rather than publically vent. Most know the game is up with Mourinho but for a game like last night they'll still back the team against big rivals. A lot of them see booing their own as something that other clubs do.

I was there last night and heard a couple of conversions where older fans who made reference to being relegated in the 70s when they were in conversion with younger ones who were feeling grumpy about the current maliase. Basically I don't think there is a deep sense of entitlement in the club DNA.
Take out the Ferguson era and the club has won only 7 league titles. Even in the Ferguson era several trophies were left behind and others were won the hard way,

Last night may have seemed poor for some viewers, but the fans appreciated the extra bite shown by the likes of Rojo and Bailly. They might have been firefighting at times, but at least they earned their paychecks. It felt a bit more like the Arsenal battles of old before Wenger had managed to completely castrate the gunners. The bit of dirt thrown in by both teams spiced it up nicely, Arsenal seemed happy with a draw for most of the night with their rolling around and timewasting. Thankfully they left it late to really start trying to exploit United's disorganised defence.

Ha! I'll see you in the tunnel, Keane.

Regards
Viera.

2-2 draw while not playing very well, with a young team and Iwobi. He drives me bananas some times, for all his quickness of feet he often belabors the ball, or just hoofs it against the first defender in his way.

Really liked the look of the Guendouzi lad this evening. Showed for every ball he could and think he was a fantastic presence in the middle of the field.

Mickey Targaryen should have scored at the end, and the one he did ping in from the end line was some rattle.

A long long time since we've seen passion like that from players and supporters.

Different feeling time!

Theyíve released him for being untruthful about the incident. The chiefs released a statement at the time if I recall, based on media reports and their talks with Hunt.

Stupid boy.

Sphinx was great also. I worked in Benedicts for a few years and we always grabbed something from Spudz after work.

Bishops was ok, Julies Armpit was to be avoided at all costs. The KamWah was mighty. Sign of a good night.

Turns out that kinda dietary carelessness catches up with you and before you know it you're jiggling on the bus on the way home.

Was a damp squib for me. Watched it with a bunch of lads and the only craic were our random
Bets on fairways, KPs, birdied etc.

The announcing was poor, the sound was poor, the PGA tour limited the side bets with their own money, and the finish was shit. Why they didnít Start it earlier is beyond me. Itís not as if we didnít know the lights are going on at 4.30 in Nevada!

Came face to face with the realisation Iíve mice in the shed yesterday when I turned off the sprinklers and winterized the pipes.

They get to enjoy thanksgiving but the traps and poison are going down today. Based on the droppings there could be multiple colonies.

No sign of them in the garage or house thankfully.

Iíll be wearing an N-95 face mask, Hanta virus is a concern over here.

I find the bag interesting, the podcast interesting, and the fact that Iím still subscribing to his patreon - interesting!

The bag: I get it. B list celebrity who doesnít want to be noticed.

Podcast: interesting. Some nonsense, plenty of interesting and well thought out positions.

The Patreon: I think he correlates well with many people, but he is not an expert. There are many fawning on him on Twitter (I challenged him on a topic I thought he was incorrect about), and many think he is God in relation to psychology. I think thatís dangerous.

He is, absolutely. But he's a necessary pantomime villain in the narrative. He's our very own window into the mindset of the average MAGA Hat wearing folks, sitting at home watching fox news wondering if they should buy silver during the commercials, or a new med alert bracelet. While also struggling with the Big Pharma commercials that the same news station keeps running.

No Iím actually stuck at Phoenix airport waiting for a delayed flight bored out of my brains

My point is what your viewpoints represent. Not what you're doing.

Absolutely not


CL stepped in front of a reporter and if you relied on the MSM for your information youíd have thought heíd be up for GBH for that encounter

Again, in the real world there is no equivalence.

Tats where we disagree

In my opinion if a Fox or Breitbart reporter did that in an Obama press conference thereíd be holy blue murder

So, In your opinion the physical coming together of the 2 people in each situation is the same?

Same in intent
Same in situation
Same in the physical contact
