    uttoxram75 got a reaction from I know nothing in Worst gig you have ever been to. Comedy or music.   
    Siousxie and the Banshees at Victoria Hall, Stoke around 1977 ish.
    Awful, she was off her head and screaming abuse at the crowd. The crowd were throwing tins of beer on stage and they were lobbing them back, the bouncers were getting more grief than they could handle and it gradually descended into total mayhem, full on fights, the concert finished early as the police raided the place, running battles in the streets around the venue.....it was pretty much like attending a football match in Stoke back then.

    If enough people are prepared to pay to watch this circus then it will happen.
    The advertising campaign for people to sign up will be phenomenal, millions and millions will be spent on huge, glossy, advertising with famous players and managers fronting it.
    I don't care personally because I will not be subscribing to it, unfortunately, millions of others will.
    Will enough Man United, Man City or Liverpool fans rebel? I would love to think so but seeing how we have given in to the greed is good brigade in all other aspects of our lives I'm not holding my breath.

    Arghhh the man that ruined my childhood. 😂 One of my first Shoot posters, turned darts target. My Dad promised me we’d win the league again, my hopes were pinned high on the bearded goal machine, how life can torment you when you’re young.
    You have just forced me to go looking for alcoholic comfort to blur the memory again.

    If people didn't watch these channels/visit their websites/buy their newspapers/follow their social media, then they would all stop being overblown, scare-mongering, frenzy-driven PR machines for the World's biggest corporate/political interests.
    Unfortunately most people do at least one of these things. I, unfortunately, read the BBC website every day at work and it's just as bad as the rest. But you learn to sift out the 90% BS and take away the 10% of the story that is true/useful to know.
    What's the old saying? Believe none of what you hear and half of what you see... unfortunately encouraging critical thinking and independent thought is not high on most Government's to do lists.
    Last thing the Governments of the world want is the plebs getting ideas above their stations.
    COVID is real and awful, however like most things, it has been weaponised by political parties on all sides, and perpetuated by the media to further divide society and help pit the general public against themselves - "Covidiots" vs "Snowflakes", rather than allowing a post-Brexit/post Trump media vacuum to be created which might be more dangerous to those at the top.

    Pointless debates about Rooney as a player. The generation aspect will always make it difficult to compare. Rooney was the best of his generation, no doubt whatsoever, not just his incredible goal scoring record but his overall contribution to the team. His workmate for United was phenomenal.
    Shearer was similar, worked his socks off and contributed to the team.
    Players like Lineker, Greaves, maybe even the greatest England forward of all time, Steve Bloomer, were out and out goal scorers, poachers, hitmen, predators, goal hangers, whatever you want to call them. quick as lightning over ten yards, intelligent, read the game well and found themselves in dangerous positions by instinct. I'd put Bobby Davison in that sort of group, (not saying he was as good as those but he had that instinct).
    So, Rooney as a player? Pretty faultless, up there with the best as a prolific goalscorer but also contributed numerous assists and defensive work to his teams. Created a lot of his own goals.
    Rooney as a manager? He most certainly must want to be a manager. He's a multimillionaire yet he's spending his time in cold, empty stadiums trying to get players who are a million miles below his standard to perform as a team under horrendous circumstances.
    He faces the flak in interviews, doesn't hide, he seems to understand the responsibility and the expectation of managing a club like ours.
    He's taking it seriously and prepared to put the hard yards in, do his apprenticeship and learn his trade.
    He'll keep us up and make us competitive next season imo.

    The saddest part about Prince Phillip was that it's the 70+ years of marriage ended for an old lady. Queen or not that's just sad. 
    Some celebrities bring you joy through what they do and I can understand it effecting you if they conjured up nice memories etc. Like Bob Mortimer has made me cry with laughter over the years and thinking about him makes me smile. If a celebrity like that dies then it will feel like a loss. 
    Caroline Flak I felt was bullied into the grave. Her being a celebrity only made the case easy to learn. It was a shocking case of bullying that the media constantly get away with. It happens in school playgrounds, constructions sites and factory floors and bullying pisses me off no end. So that death with all its coverage made me angry
    But then ones like Nikki Graham. I saw her in Big Brother and thought she was embarrassing herself. I didn't like her. I wouldn't wish any suffering on her and I'd rather she still be here. But if I was to say I'm sad about it then it would be a lie to gain likes or attention. 
    Alan Rickman was a good one mentioned. For my Mrs he played a small part in some happy memories spent watching Harry Potter with her family. He's a small part of her childhood and it's natural to feel a sense of loss. 
    Never felt a great sense of loss for Prince Phillip but the idea of a widowed old lady does make me feel some sympathy. But she has a better support network than most so its actually less sad than some peasant!

    Pretty much the same when hearing of the death of a celebrity. I can never understand the grieve shown by the general public for someone they've only seen on tv.
    I found the none stop coverage of the death of the Duke of Edinburgh, that was spread over the Friday, Saturday and Sunday a little OTT.
    He may have played some role in the life of our nation but with having no direct connection to him or his family, I don't feel any personal loss when his death was announced. 
    As for his funeral on the Saturday, I'll probably give it a passing interest but it will be more to it's historical significance. This will be more than I gave to the funeral of Diana. Which I spent on Mablethorpe beach, building sandcastles with my kids.

    The record of both sides since Rooney was appointed manager:

    The inexperinced 34 year-old Rooney, missing half the squad due to injury, (including one of the best players in the league), with a bunch of kids to fill in... vs the experienced and one of the best managers in the league, with one of the biggest squads in the league, with very few if any injuries.
