Sounds like you may have got off lightly.

We all love a happy ending.

You mean when Charnley scored?

Fond memories of this fixture from last season. It was quite a warm day if I recall correctly.

Well it was certainly in the eighties.....

The pied piper ,Josef Goebals, the bigger the lie the more they'll believe .

I think perhaps "wake up and smell the coffee" might be more appropriate.

LEY please,it is important

As important as spaces after commas, spaces between words, apostrophes where letters are missing and the letter "I" being a capital when on it's own perhaps?

 

(And that's just your sig.... :tongue: )




#2974039 Pub Near London Victoria

True. You can never go wrong with a 'spoons. :)

If going in earlyish for breakfast, be sure to be appropriately dressed so as not to stand out from the regulars.

 

I would recommend...

 

1. An old black leather jacket that's seen better days.

2. Either a pair of trousers from an old pinstripe suit that used to have a matching jacket, a pair of shell suit bottoms that used to have a matching jacket or any pair of tracksuit bottoms that used.....etc,etc..

3. A pair of old brown/blue trainers bought from one of those bargain buckets outside shoe shops.

 

Also, you need to sit close to the entrance doors so you don't have to walk too far for your regular ciggie and you also need to possess your own key for the disabled toilet so you don't have to walk too far for whatever your regular need for the toilet is.....




#2968370 From 'When Push Comes To Shove" to Sierra Leone

Posted by Old Frightful on 31 July 2014 - 05:54 AM

Absolutely loved those two books....them were't days... B)

 

But you're quite right of course, we've certainly come a long way since they were published.

 

Still, nostalgia is a wonderful thing, especially if you're a Hull FC fan.  :rolleyes:




#2967287 Ben Crooks

Posted by Old Frightful on 28 July 2014 - 08:56 PM

Another player who's had his confidence destroyed by Lee Radford's style of coaching.

 

Like has already been said, he went alright last year, good enough to be the dream team centre, but you can't tell our super duper coach that.

 

Of course, he knows best it seems.




#2964713 smoking at stadiums

The non-smoking fascists

Why destroy any credibility you may have had in this discussion by typing the above?




#2964482 smoking at stadiums

Posted by Old Frightful on 24 July 2014 - 06:14 AM

I think l'ang's point is that, unless a smoker stands about 50 yards from the nearest person, people will always be affected by any smoke produced directly or second hand passively from them. Unless they're a clumsy bleeder, you're not likely to get splashed by alcohol, even if somebody is drinking right next to you.

 

Like has already been mentioned, if you willingly attend a none smoking facility, you should be prepared to do without smoking for as long as you're on the premises of said facility.

 

I once saw a bloke take a child of around 18 months old into one of the traps at the KC stadium. You could see the smoke coming out over the top of said trap for the duration of his cigarette. He then emerged stinking of smoke, still carrying the child who, presumably, had to "enjoy" the smoke as well. I found this behaviour appalling and an utterly selfish act.

 

(and before anyone asks, I was suffering with a touch of food poisoning at the time and, rather desperately, needed to spend a little time on my own... :ph34r: )




#2964427 24/07/14 - Hull FC v Castleford Tigers KO 8pm (TV)

Posted by Old Frightful on 23 July 2014 - 10:14 PM

No Huby, Carney or Webster in the Cas squad so not that confident.

Hardly anybody that gives a sh it in the Hull squad so even less confident.

 

Finally there seems to be a fair bit of collective unrest amongst the Hull FC faithful so, with this game being on Sky, we may expect some anti Radford stuff quite often during the game.

 

In fact, it's all I'm looking forward to, rather sadly.

If "sigesige00" wanted to wind more people up under a different persona, "davidhubball" would have fitted the bill perfectly.

 

Just my opinion.




#2962394 Bradford officially relegated
