I could spend all morning listening to Ed Sheeran. But I’d better not.

Southern rail users face more strikes as drivers reject Aslef-backed deal

February 16, 2017 3 comments

There’s a psychologist woman on Sky News trying to tell older people how to be happy. She’s telling me I should sing and dance. Guess what I’m telling her?

In Fergie’s era Man U had Hughes, McClair, Giggs, Cole, Yorke, Van Nistelrooy, Rooney, Cristiano Ronaldinho, Scholes, Beckham, prolific or regular scorers all, and great club men.

Today we have a 35 year-old football tourist and nobody else who even knows what shape the goals are.
