Yes,Manchester United have the first trophy in the cabinet,
the community shield after thrashing Portsmouth 3 v 1
and the season does not start until next week.
LSemmens - 11-8-2008 at 11:50
If the season hasn't started, could it be that MU were the only team playing? The fact that Portsmouth scored a goal even when they weren't there
doesn't say much for MU's goalie!
charles - 12-8-2008 at 10:49
No there was two teams, this is the seasons opener.....
LSemmens - 12-8-2008 at 14:25
But, Charles, you said
I rest my case!
charles - 12-8-2008 at 14:38
LSemmens - 12-8-2008 at 15:17
Then it wasn't a game, it was just practise! If the season doesn't start 'till next week, how can it be an "opener"? Gee! You MU supporters are
thick! Either it's opened, or it's closed, how can a season be opened if it hasn't even started!
charles - 12-8-2008 at 16:32
Ask John to explain, you seem to have trouble grasping the nettle
John Barnes - 12-8-2008 at 19:46
Please leave me out this debate , because the bragging has only just started and it is fairly muted at the moment but it still grates on my eyes and
ears. I am trying to be a neutral observer this season unless THEY don't perform well jmb
charles - 13-8-2008 at 08:43
Get ready,it all kicks of this weekend.........
John Barnes - 13-8-2008 at 09:38
LSemmens - 13-8-2008 at 14:35
The only nettle that I choose to grasp are those in our yard as I uproot them. Probably another pest introduced by the Poms!
John Barnes - 13-8-2008 at 17:14
I have just met the Yorkshire equivalent of Charles, whilst watching the Olympic super heavy weight boxing heats the English contender stopped the
Russian European champion in the first round(the ref stopped the fight) and I heard one bloke say we did it and was jumping for joy, not only was this
guy about 8000 miles from Beijing he was not even in the ring, so he had nothing to do with the verdict, some thing like Charles makes us endure when
MU win on a Saturday, I just smiled to myself and shook my head in sympathy and said nothing > jmb
charles - 13-8-2008 at 21:42
When he said " WE" he meant us Brits. you thickie...
marymary100 - 13-8-2008 at 22:31
Do you go to many matches Charles? I'm just an armchair fan of the Accies.
Daz - 14-8-2008 at 01:05
Any reason you don't pop along to the odd game or two Mary...?
Fully fledged season ticket holder here btw, for the last 28 years. (IIRC. There, or thereabouts anyway!)
Not with the Accies I hasten to add, that would be a helluva round trip for me on a Saturday!
Just wondering like...
John Barnes - 14-8-2008 at 13:19
Don't start getting abusive and name calling Charles the season has not started yet, and who are you to comment on if I am a thickie as you so
politely term it, whats your IQ ? jmb
Katzy - 15-8-2008 at 09:07
Funny how any Moan U victory is described, by Charles, as "A thrashing", innit?
charles - 15-8-2008 at 10:58
Well it usually is......
charles - 15-8-2008 at 11:01
About 6 whats yours ?......
charles - 15-8-2008 at 11:02
Oh, I would say about 6, whats yours?.......
charles - 15-8-2008 at 11:04
I used to have two season tickets for the shrine, from 1957
to 1996 then I packed up going when TV started to dictate
kick off times,I can still see all United games on my telly.
John Barnes - 15-8-2008 at 14:08
I31 on the Catteral scale.jmb
Here is a rough guide to IQ Charles
Table 1 - Practical Significance of IQ
>1% >1% below 30 Illiterate Unemployable. Institutionalized.
30 to 50
>1%? >1% below 50 1st-Grade to 3rd-Grade Simple, non-critical household chores.
50 to 60
~1%? 1.5% below 60 3rd-Grade to 6th-grade Very simple tasks, close supervision.
60 to 74
3.5%? 5% below 74 6th-Grade to 8th-Grade "Slow, simple, supervised."
74 to 89
20% 25% below 89 8th-Grade to 12th-Grade Assembler, food service, nurse's aide
89 to 100
25% 50% below 100 8th-Grade to 1-2 years of College. Clerk, teller, Walmart
100 to 111
50% 1 in 2 above 100 12th-Grade to College Degree Police officer, machinist, sales
111 to 120
15% 1 in 4 above 111 College to Master's Level Manager, teacher, accountant
120 to 125
5% 11 in 10above 120 College to Non-Technical Ph. D.'s. Manager, professor, accountant
125 to 132
3% 1 in 20 above 125 Any Ph. D. at 3rd-Tier Schools Attorney, editor, executive.
132 to 137
1% 1 in 50 above 132 No limitations. Eminent professor, editor
137 to 150
0.9% 1 in 100 above 137 No limitations. Leading math, physics professor
150 to 160
0.1% 1 in 1,100 above 150 No limitations Lincoln, Copernicus, Jefferson
160 to 174
0.01% 1 in 11,000 above 160 No limitations Descartes, Einstein, Spinoza
174 to 200
0.0099% 1 in 1,000,000
above 174 No limitations Shakespeare, Goethe, Newton
So if you have told all the forum that you have an intelligence Quotient of 6, on the scale shown above, it advoctes you are -both unemployable and
should be instutionalised.
this is the Mensa scale . jmb
Katzy - 15-8-2008 at 18:14
So, if Moan U win 2-1, it's "A thrashing". Yet, if they lose 2-1, it's "Unlucky".
If there really IS a god, Moan U will be playing in the Championship, next season.
charles - 15-8-2008 at 18:31
And maybe shot as well ...........
charles - 15-8-2008 at 19:31
Like my Ar***, btw,I have been a member of Mensa for the last 10 years,put that in your pipe and smoke it........
Daz - 15-8-2008 at 20:52
Charles, you need this smiley mate, 'cos it seems whenever you post, most people take you serious, and don't get your sense of humour at all...
Add this to your posts, it might help... [badimg]http://www.mysmiley.net/imgs/smile/sign/sign0157.gif[/bad img]
John Barnes - 15-8-2008 at 22:13
Well you said you had a IQ of 6 not me, and we all know you dont tell lies, so it must be true also I dont and never have smoked , jmb

They still would not understand it Daz........
Katzy - 16-8-2008 at 10:33
You know, of course, that there's only one team in the Premiere league that's never been out of the top-flight, since the war?
Not Moan U.
charles - 16-8-2008 at 14:53
Yes I do,and its not West Ham.............
Katzy - 17-8-2008 at 16:06
Katzy says, as MoanU's preicted "Thrashing" of Newcastle is, currently, 1-1.
Smug grin@Chelsea's REAL thrashing of Portsmouth, 4-0.
LSemmens - 18-8-2008 at 14:07
I heard on the news today that Moan U couldn't even beat a lowly team in their first match of the season. What was the final score, Charles? 1 - 1?
charles - 18-8-2008 at 14:55
Yes it was 1 v 1 but United had all their goalscorers off, the ref denied a blatent penalty and they always are slow starters.........
