Apparently the worst album ever is Thank You, by Duran Duran.



Hey, I just bought Thank you last week. It's not too bad. There's a great version of Diamond dogs, an ok version of Success & a few other pretty good covers. Much better than Bowie's Pinups.

Don't read unless you know who Darren Huckerby is new [re: eraserhead]  

In reply to:

I was under the impression he was one of the top-managers


I think that's just about his only achievement since he hung up his boots: the creation of that impression. I can't think of any other obviously useless manager who has managed to keep that impression going for so long, and so much moolah.

And still there are people who think "But he's still a good manager". Look at the facts, people. He inherited the finest crop of youngsters in the English game since the early 90s crop at Man United from Howard Wilkinson. George Graham had started to forge them into a decent side and they were climbing the table when he decided he preferred the restaurants back in London. So O'Leary, who was "learning the trade" by saying "Yes boss" and "Right away boss" several hundred times a day to George Graham (a damaged indiviual who has never recovered from Arsenal's 92 Cup loss to Walsall, an event which caused his views on football to melt down and crystallize into a belief that you'd win nothing with fancy Dan foreigners with flair and creativity, so he sold off all the skilful players like Stefan Schwartz and brought in "battlers" like John Hartson), took over. A flashy Champion's League run notwithstanding, Leeds got steadily lower in the Premship every season under O'Leary until they got relegated (and liquidated). The crop of youngsters never fulfilled their potential, and ended up spreading like wild geese to other clubs, while true to type O'Leary alienated and forced out skilful players like Hasselbaink and spent tens of millions on duffers like Huckerby.

After that, you'd think he'd never work again, but somehow he got handed Villa and on a massive salary. And then, well, you know better than I do what happened next.

In his latest interview, O'Leary treats Villa's problems like it was a personal tragedy, saying how he deserves to be at the top of the table, it's where he belongs etc. etc. He's a child of Thatcher (the politician he says he admires the most): an individualist to the point of virtual sociopathology.

In reply to:

So, guess what my new favourite Premier League club is?


Arlequino's already spotted that it should be Arsenal if you are true to your core beliefs. But he's also right when he says you're not allowed to switch allegiances. It might be okay when you're 5 or maybe 6 at a stretch, but we have a name for people who switch, and it's a name no serious football fan ever wants to be hear: gloryhunter. So while you're allowed to admire from afar the "all my own work" genius of Thierry Henry, or the intelligent brilliance of Cesc Fabregas, or the mad voodoo witchdoctor juiced up on magic mushrooms look of Adenbayor, you have to suck it up and continue to support the Villains, waiting for the day when the sun shines on them again. I started supporting Arsenal in 1977 because they were at that time the English club with the most Irish players (six first teamers). Guess how many they have now? That's right: big fat zero. But I found other reasons to love and stayed loyal, unlike my brother who jumped ship after Ipswich beat us in the 79 Cup final. He got his just deserts too: a lifetime of fretting whether Ipswich will ever escape the clutches of the Nationwide Coca Cola Mickey Mouse league, with the occasional mirage season praying for a miracle to avoid relegation back to same.

Slan libh,

Dara

Switching teams is the most heinous thing you can do. It doesn't matter how shite Man City do, to abandon them would be to drown myself in ignomy. Shame on you.

Hmmm. Odd. It's of no great importance but that's the second time in a few weeks that you've mistaken me for Arlequino. Either it's a sign that we're closely matched as posters, you've over-indulged on the black stuff recently or it's about time that you invested in a pair of reading glasses!

I think we all get that feeling “what can I do to help the human race” then you probably like me say fuck it theirs something on the TV - JamieSim
