Cowart's Common Room
Man U

Okay, bit of useless information here but did you know that on this day in 1986, Sir Alex Ferguson was appointed manager of Manchester United?

I'm certainly not a football fan but people here in the North East take football very seriously. Hardly a day goes by when it's not discussed on the radio or splashed over the local paper. Why is it, that even though (I speak from personal experience only) the farmer only supports Sunderland, when he's able to he watches every other team playing too? Yet he can't stand Newcastle United and always watches them play Rolling Eyes

Exmoorjane's Avatar I just don't get football.....unless it's the World Cup and I'm admiring the French team's thighs. Rugby's my game (well, obviously not for playing!).

Faith's Avatar Better thighs in Rugby and the blokes roll around in the mud - yum!

Snailbeachshepherdess's Avatar What was that game where they whizz something down the ice and then they all go mad with brooms?...a bit like crown green bowling on ice with a stick - even that is more interesting than football - I detest it, I dread the 'Muuuuuuuum we are through to the final - you will come and watch wont you! Even lugged me from a hospital bed once to watch a final! Grrrrrrr! Overpaid and over rated!

Exmoorjane's Avatar curling, is that it, SBS? Bewildered by that, totally.

Snailbeachshepherdess's Avatar so am I! But it has to be better than football!

Crystal Jigsaw's Avatar Ironing's better than football Rolling Eyes

Exmoorjane's Avatar Very Happy Now I loathe ironing but even so I'd have to agree....

Posted by: Exmoorjane on 6th Nov 2008 at 01:56PM

Snailbeachshepherdess's Avatar about on a par I think!

Milla's Avatar ironing's hotter but doesn't take as long and there shouldn't be so much mud involved. Or silly haircuts.

FunkyMunky's Avatar I'm a keen football fan. I support Ipswich, hate Norwich ... it's a local rivalry thing ... and would absolutely NOT watch them play!! My parents both support Newcastle United, though probably haven't been to St James' Park since the 1950s. They don't understand the rivalry thing at all and always look for results from Middlesbrough & Sunderland in the hopes that they've won! Strange!
