Chemistry eh?

Second para reads like Charles Hughes’ understanding of football rather than George Best’s. I don’t consider it relevant, but then I don’t fancy myself as some kind of arbiter.

Anyway, balls to this, can you stop stalking me now please? Maybe focus on your other weird obsession with telling PWS off for telling us we’ve scored a goal.

Article on the main man in The Athletic;

"...owners who back him to the hilt, even a regular charter flight from Birmingham to Spain whenever he wants..."

But can he have a bacon sandwich whenever he wants?

Wouldn't the restrictive clause only apply if the sentence were transposed? Or does the definite article act to specify an exact manifestation of the wider o'level concept and the subject's participation therein?

Not being funny, genuine question, no offence.

Or can he ring up reception and order an Irish Coffee at 3 in the morning?

I make a mean Irish Coffee, if they send the plane to me I'd be happy to get it for him.

What on earth has that got to do with Emery? He works in just about the most capitalist, least egalitarian industry on earth.

Two dozen extra staff just cos they speak Spanish? Fuck sake, we'd all be amazing coaches with that kind of luxury.

How about he improves his English so that he answers reporters questions directly instead of his round-about, philosophical way? Lazy Dracula-lookalike. Emery out.

And no mention of their being able to understand Spanish, or read and write it either. I think this could be problematic.

Chemistry eh?

Second para reads like Charles Hughes’ understanding of football rather than George Best’s. I don’t consider it relevant, but then I don’t fancy myself as some kind of arbiter.

Anyway, balls to this, can you stop stalking me now please? Maybe focus on your other weird obsession with telling PWS off for telling us we’ve scored a goal.
Dear oh dear! Stalking? Bit of a leap there.

Telling people off? No. I have given my opinion regarding his obsession with being the goal monitor and I hardly ever go on the match threads any more so why you would bring up ancient history I do not know.

It has everything to do with his origins as a Basque; but you don't have to read it ...
