He’s only benching around 20KG on each side. Nothing to be ashamed of, but nothing impressive either.

To make it even more irritating, he’ll sing out loud, between sets and when finished he does a little jig between different equipment like he’s Justin Timberlake or something.

Oh, an shadow boxing the mirror while making noises like “pah, pah, pah” or “bam, bam, bam”.

Leave it out, you ****.

He just sounds like an attention seeking ****

Substitutes celebrations
Running onto the pitch and swamping the goalscorer.

Goalscorers

Running off pitch to celebrate with the manager and all the substitutes.

Book them all once and problem solved.

Managers running down the touch line with arms flailing like a whirling dervish. Known as Dad dancing here ��

I've woken up in a really bad mood this morning. Shocking nights sleep. My upper right leg is buggered, has been for about 3 weeks, it's like a bad back but in my leg. The thing that annoys me, lipoma's. My upper right leg is covered in them and because of it, physio can't really get to the problem area. The NHS (who have in the past removed 8 of the things from various other parts of me) won't touch them any more, they don't have the budget, which I get. Other things are more important.

At the last count I've got about 60 of these things which are visible, ranging in size from a pea to a squashed tennis ball (that little beauty is on my back). Anyway, they annoy me. I know there are more important things in the world...

Coming back from Sheffield I boarded the train 25 minutes early to see the message flashing that there would be no full power until shortly before departure.

This meant low lighting, no charging of phones or laptops (no big deal) but all the seats were showing as not being reserved so basically a free-for-all.

When full power was booted 10 minutes before departure all the reserved seats came to life causing much confusion and people wanting their occupied pew.

Madness I tell ya.

I was thinking more about the odd poster who was hoping that Olise never recovered from his hamstring injury - or something along those lines.

Should comments along those lines, either on here, or X (or somesuch) get read by a player, what influence does that have on their decison about who they may play for in the future.

We were all disappointed when this story was developing, but people should be able to rein in their thoughts a tad as adult contributors.

People who tailgate you when you are doing 25mph in a 20mph zone (most of Lewisham) and then overtake you on wrong side of pedestrian island or on inside coming up to zebra crossing. Inevitably you catch up with them at next traffic lights. Dangerous idiots.

I was getting the reputation of being annoyed at everything, which really is not true. Annoyed is far to strong of a word... more like observations.

Anyway, my post count was getting to close to yours ME, so decided to cut back from this thread, and hopefully PeterH can catch up with and overtake me for second place!

This trend for football bellends to start sentences with “understand” as among the div community it seems to lend gravitas to their claim of being ITK.

As bad as Redknapp starting that “top, top” word soup for which his wife rightly left him.

Tacos?

Probably too delicate an eating process for ham fisted Brits. Hedgehog probably knows a couple of Mexicans who could help.

Proper tacos shouldn't have crispy tortillas.

Tacos are not crispy. Baked tacos are, but they are called tostadas. I have not seen a U shaped tostada in a Mexican restaurant, or in Mexico.

Those are generally the most vocal if you have a poor result. Most true fans know that a crap performance can easily be a game away and are reasonably humble. I generally ask those people how many games they've been to and where their season ticket is in the ground. When they then admit to not going I just tell them they are a follower, which generally shuts them up. It' a bit like all the African 'followers' who constantly post on BBC Sport and refer to clubs as 'we'!

Their live YT channel has almost 8million viewers.
They are showing telemetry from the lander and equally as important, a shot of the Prime Minister who is watching the event.

Kinda says it all

I very much doubt they would get 8million viewers on YT for the live announcement of some project to tackle poverty.

Cost 75million. Which in grand scheme of things is not that much. When you think of circa 45 trillion that UK helped themselves from the subcontinent which would have caused more poverty than a space programme.

They also had help from EASa and NASA and Russians so I hope it goes well.

I have actually thought of something that irritates me intensely, and I wonder whether it is mostly a Chilean thing. Certainly something that always happened in Santiago.

On the rare occasions here where we get a nice refreshing downpour that for a few hours or half a day clears the smog, it is often followed by some massive plastic factory having a huge fire.

Santiago was founded and constructed within a deep bowl surrounded by mountains and hills. Thus, modern pollution just sits on top of the city. This is true of various cities in Chile situated in valleys between The Andes and what they call the coastal hill range.

In winter we have the rare treat of the sunny, blue sky morning following a down pour. You can go up to one of the city's high points and get a fantastic view of the city with a backdrop of mountains with fresh snow, and you can breathe.

But almost as sure as night follows day, that morning a huge plume of smoke can be seen somewhere to the west of Santaigo with prevailing winds taking it across the city. Then the news confirms that a plastics factory or a tyre depot has gone up in smoke.

You just want to find the owners and slap them about. Maybe the rain shorts the electric or something.

It's either that or the poor immigrants or some dozy old fart leaves a parafin heater running for the damp and cold and half a block goes up.

On the rare occasions here where we get a nice refreshing downpour that for a few hours or half a day clears the smog, it is often followed by some massive plastic factory having a huge fire.

Santiago was founded and constructed within a deep bowl surrounded by mountains and hills. Thus, modern pollution just sits on top of the city. This is true of various cities in Chile situated in valleys between The Andes and what they call the coastal hill range.

We were in Maipu (a western suburb) attending a funeral today. Not a tyre or plastic factory fire in sight. Having said that it wasn't really one of those clear blue days either - still a lot of post "systema frontal" cloudage. The mountains did look stunning when the cloud thinned.

And one annoyance from the day. Priest giving the pre-burial service.. taking advantage of the fact that he had a captured audience to preach about the horrors of being gay - he really went off on one. I walked out.

Jeepers.

And what else could you do. If it was a regular sermon, you could stand up and have a go. At a funeral, or wedding, you can't say anything.

Probably worth getting involved if the c nut is overseeing a baptism, though.

There's got to be a 50/50 chance the priest is a wrong un.
