    I remember back in the old days of IRC when the occasional Turk used to come on.

    The comments would be along the lines of...

    "Turkish fans are always fisting. We fist anybody, we are not scared".

    Me: "Really, so do you like fisting men"?

    "Yes we fist only men, never women".

    Me: And does fisting men make you hard?"

    "Yes, Turkish men are hard when fisting!"

    etc.

    Ronaldo won the Ballon D'or for the World's best player while at UTD.



    Wanted to go to Real Madrid, the manager said give us one more season and I'll let you go, if it is as the most expensive transfer in history.

    After scoring around 42 goals, some of which were just ridiculous, he was sold for a World record transfer.

    I remember the scene from the movie Euro trip - the Man U fans in their own bus and engaging in a fist fight later in the movie. So were those scousers, chavs or pikeys? (To those who have seen the movie)

    Again, thanks in advance.
    Errr. Not quite Katie. Scousers and Manchester football fans hate each other with a vengeance like no other. Man Utd fans would rather lose to Man City than drop a point against Liverpool and vice versa. Chav or pikey scum. Not much to choose between them, and not true fans in either case. Supporting a football team should not be an excuse for violence.

    The Roman chavo has been around as long as all the strolls here together thoogh the Manchester Grauiniad invemted a a nice retro definition used in the area of Thornton Heath and Croydon where the failed of London are "parked". It is is where PEEP show was filmed .

    COUNCIL HOUSE AND VIOLENT, for thos unWhitgifted a council House is where white peasants were stored in case gun fodder needed , Housing Benefit Hill is similar to the projects of teh Bronx or the ultimate Houso in New South Wales Blackalsl Park Toronto a living museum of the transported !

    The Croydon Ladies pulled back mane has itself been named the CROYDON FACELIFT

    In Englishslang, a Croydon facelift (sometimes council house facelift,[or in Northern Ireland a Millie Facelift) is a particular hairstyle worn by some women.[ The hair is pulled back tightly and tied in a bun or ponytail at the back.[3] The supposed result is that the skin of the forehead and face are pulled up and back, producing the effects of a facelift. traction alopecia, a type of gradual hair loss, can result from hairstyles that tightly pull the hair in this manner.
    This hairstyle is frequently portrayed in the media as belonging to young women from the lower social classes, particularly the Chavsubculture (Ned in Scotland, Millie in Northern Ireland). The term is thus considered derogatory because it portrays people from Croydon as being lower class. Croydon can be replaced by the name of any other unfashionable residential area.
    The Croydon Guardian newspaper jokingly suggested that the style may have originated with the ancient Egyptian Queen Nefertiti.

    On a personal note may I add the ladies of Croydon are keen and grateful, and excellent target practice for us as schoolboys who found the Addington and Roundhay variety less refined and a longer walk home

    In the era of young gifted and black , Whitgift boys were the creme de la creme and include Derren Brown and The school was also home to sport stars such as Victor Moses (professional footballer), Danny Cipriani (one of many professional rugby players) and Lawrence Okoye (2012 Olympian and current San Fran 49er).

    Chavs = Uneducated wannabe gangsta white trailer trash.(example chitty)
    Pikey = Uneducated caravan travelling peasants who want to tarmac your drive or fix your fence very cheaply whilst repopulating by inbreeding .(example djpat)

    I read about Ronaldo some years ago, because he was my celeb crush at the time. Then a guy friend told me that he's gay (or at least bi). Minor heartbreak....

    There's prolly a YouTube vid about the Man U fans in the movie Euro trip. The protagonist waking up drunk in the Man U bus - that was a hoot, as well as the Man U fist fight. Cheers.

    Or he could be laying down muttering in a pool of his own piss in a Piccadilly pedestrian tunnel, clutching a bottle of Archers in a brown paper bag in one hand, and his other hand out begging for coins to try and raise funds for the journey home.

    Just sayin'.

    If they go out tomorrow we may not see him again until opening day.

    I would imagine Sheikh Yerbooty won't be too chuffed either. Have to go out and buy another manager and another shitload of players.

    Plus all the Qataris will be ringing him up and taking the piss if Barca win it again.

    There's just so much shit to throw at them today. This is Paul Lake at HT:



    Anyone would think they were repeat champions over about 20 years the way they'd been going on before the game. They've won 4 fucking titles and a couple of cups despite the millions of oil money they've had.

    Similar to Wolves and Huddersfield, but these clubs had actually earned it.

    Nope, unlike kitty; Lake 'the City Legend' (who also represented England at B team level) has been quite classy about it


    Yep, getting a fair bit of flak from my Red friends (!) for my half-time comments yesterday. Guilty as charged. Got a bit giddy. Lesson learned

    Its very probable that Our Cockwomble friend will have more than Teakdoor members feelings on his plate
