Do you mean the miles and miles of Mismanaged Motorway that seem to be everywhere south of Cannock? I wonder how people down south can drive anywhere without going out of their heads on these things. Absolutely maddening.

They've built one in Glasgow now but they haven't switched it on yet.

Bloke with his GF in the supermarket who looked like he had just got back from his steriod injections. Grabs a can of deodorant sprays each armpit fully and tosses the can back on the shelf. She didn’t bat an eyelid at this. God knows what little gobshites of kids they will bring into this world. I hope his steroids make him childless and her tubes get blocked.

American soccer "experts" who think it's all about technical skills and training of systems and etc., etc...

Guy on the radio today who holds seminars on the art of soccer coaching had me banging the steering wheel in annoyance. The US will never be a soccer power if guys like this are coaching. The guy wouldn't shut the **** up either!

Oh and the knives are out for Gregg Berhalter already... apparently he is not pushing the players to follow systems or be tactically smart. I hope Zaha never ends up playing in the US!

He had a point to a certain extent, but I had this vision of him coaching all enjoyment and expression of skill out of the game at grass roots level. I even heard him admit that most kids leave soccer at 13 or so as they don't enjoy it...

Other peopleís kids at campsites.

Decided to take our 2&5 year old camping. First time weíve not gone in the VW van and went for a tent instead. All was great with the kids racing around, getting covered head to toe in mud and generally loving the outdoors. But come time to put them to bed we had kids screaming and charging around until nearly midnight. Playing football against our tent. Tripping over the guy ropes. Shouting back and forth. STFU already. Learned a lot of valuable lessons ahead of the next time. Thank god for blackout tents though. Canít believe how long it took to invent them.

Hedgehog 16-06-2019 10:02 PM

People who ask you how much you paid for something. I guess I'm old fashioned, but I've always considered this bad form, and certainly something in general I don't think I have ever done.

To compound the annoyance, when you do tell them what you paid for something they then go on to question your judgement in paying that much (reading between the lines... isn't that rather a lot of money?), regardless of your circumstances, the source of the money, and the logic behind your thinking.

Pisses me off royally.
