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

    Definitely worth for km's comment though :-)
    I massively over use the word like when in conversation, I am fairly sure I use gotten on occasion too. Something about it in written form just reads wrongly. Seeing it makes reading Stephen King quite difficult as he uses it all the time!

    You are a factory of sadness.

    and he's gotten some excellent assists.
    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.
    Scans better with gotten in my opinion. I think this is a cultural thing though. I reckon it fits in better with the flow of how the Irish speak English.

    The spurs zippy tops look quite nice. Apart from the obvious cock on ball logo.

    Is that Townsend's 5th shot? It's only been 12 minutes!

    Ralph from North London: AVB took over a top-four team. Spent almost 200m since and I still can't see us qualify even for Europa League this season. All we need is a proper manager. Please come back Arry.

    Lukaku's booking was harsh. Didn't look like he left his leg there, more the GK sliding into it.

    Nice bit of time wasting afterwards mind. Shouldn't it be the manager who decides whether you're taken off or not?

    The passing is just dreadful. Two teams trying to play football that's an entire tier above their capability as a squad.

    Or 2 evenly matched teams unable to impose their style of play?

    Poor Tottenham, they can never get a penalty when they need one.

    Fair result, tho robbed of a penalty and Soldado is a lucky boy. Some really poor reffing, but it was a poor game.
