    Jesus wept, saw this whilst I was on that Mirror link.



    Is this a fashionable hairstyle to have now or something?

    The bloke I mean. I'm almost certain he spends more time in front of the mirror than that girl to his right,

    Apparently after banning The Chronicle and The Journal we've now banned the NUST from talking to Newcastle. :S

    Liverpool have been jammy with a few of their results. Arsenal and City look like the two who, despite hiccups, have deserved every win so far. Expect them to win it.

    Btw Girouds finishing may be a little iffy but I've honestly never seen a player as good at winning headers, bringing long balls down and holding up the ball as he is.

    Please please please let this be true

    Newcastle director of football Joe Kinnear tried to sign midfielder Shane Ferguson after a scouting trip to Birmingham - only to be told the 22-year-old was already a Newcastle player and had been loaned to the Blues.

    He has been consistently excellent with his hold up play every time I've watched you this season.

    Touch and decision making have been superb at times and he's gotten some excellent assists. Deserved a goal yesterday I thought.

    Drogba would say something about that.
    I'm sure The Hammerite would've told you that if Chelsea had won today.

    But Giroud isn't a c*nt, and has some great flick ons.

    Do you know who is Stoke's joint top scorer in the Premiership? Do you?
    Asmir Begovic.

    Gotten is a horrible Americanism.

    Ha, I made the same joke at the game yesterday. Lead. Balloon. Wasted, totally.

    Anyway, best I've seen us play in a while that. Thought we zipped the ball about nicely, caused all sorts of problems for Liverpool and we deserved the 3 points. Suarez is fucking good though.

    I haven't seen the highlights yet, but did the keeper get a hand to his chip/dink?

    I didn't think so.

    Rosicky was awesome for me. I love his energy.

    Nah. Just dropped out of favour in England. Still have ill-gotten gains etc.

    And (@THFourteen) Niall Quinn is the best at winning headers, controlling long balls, and holding the ball that I've ever seen (at least in the second half of his career). Of course, he had a lot of practice.

    Obvious choice but I thought Ramsey was MotM. The bloke just never stopped running and closing down. I even thought his goal hadn't gone in for a split second, he belted it so hard, it pinged right back out of the net! Awesome.

    Even the curse of being put in my fantasy football team didn't stop him. He is literally unstoppable. Literally.

    As has been said here, it's archaic British usage which is still current in America. It's perfectly cromulent here too.

    Also "Aluminum" is actually the original name of the element, and it's the British who decided to change it so it would sound nicer with the other "-ium" elements. Although, to be fair, the Americans went back to that spelling once everyone else had settled on 'Aluminium'.

    It's complicated and the Yanks aren't always wrong, is what I am saying.

    This sentence would scan better if it just said "he has had some excellent...", gotten in that context is unwieldy, as it always is. As for ill-gotten gains, I hadn't really considered that but I would counter your suggestion by pointing out that there are loads of inelegant olde English words that have been disregarded because they don't flow well in the language, gotten is just such an example.

    Yep, but it doesn't make it an Americanism.

    Anyhoo, does anyone like that foot-the-ball?

    Yea fair point, I tend to use it conversationally myself and think it sounds fine.

    Definitely worth for km's comment though :-)
