I chuckle a lot too. The amount of posters who "know" what is happening in the minds of players, managers, directors, etc, is endlessly amusing.

Then there's the amusing phenomenon of posters latching on to words or phrases. Like sheep, they blindly repeat. The most recent key word is 'turgid'. It is used daily, and by posters who I thought were more educated. None of them even bothered to find the meaning. "That sounds good, I'll use that!"

But hey! No worries, it keeps me chuckling.

In usual circumstances I’d agree with you both, but only ever playing the same players? Roy did this when he had alternatives. I’m not saying sack him with the current finances available, but to say he picks the same formation and nearly always players based on what he sees changing each week and in players’ lives and minds is stretching it a bit in this case.

Wife beating may be socially acceptable in Sheffield, but it is a different matter in Cheltenham

You got me off on that bribery, perjury and extortion charge. I owe you one.

Strange, I thought the word turgid is quite applicable to our style of play. To quote Collins: “ If you describe something such as a piece of writing or a film as turgid, you think it is boring and difficult to understand.” I think you could describe our performances as boring and our tactics difficult to understand without too much bending of the meaning of the word.

But if it keeps you happy, that is the main thing:-)

Quite possibly, but much will depend on the team he puts out and the way the team plays. One can already hear the "one swallow doesn't make a summer" should that unlikely event occur.
Our last home win against them was in May 1991. I don't see today's squad changing that statistic, despite our first and surprise victory over them in the Prem earlier this season.

Agree,we have a very bad record against them over the years,save that fantastic 5-0 home win in '72.( I was there to enjoy their complete demolition)

a couple of years before my time. My first win over them was the 1-0 with the 'team of the eighties' when Peter Nicholas (I think) curled one in at the Holmesdale Road end. I was behind the goal so was one of the first to raise the hands in glee and yell.

Oh I see. So you think turgid means boring and difficult to understand. I like that. Look up synonyms of turgid.

Or alternatively, keep 'em coming. You're cracking me up.

 


Systematically dragged down by the lawmakers

The guy who serves my mixed Shish is Turgid.

 


I used to put the manager's name in front of Red and Blue but got fed up with changing it. If someone cool becomes our manager then maybe..

Red and Blue Army!
