lol Ryan, I honestly don't know, i've been shaving my head for the last 10+ years. I can't remember how weird it felt the first time.

RAB wait till you try and take the hat off you will wear to keep your head warm when you go out, it's the velcro effect mate, also makes removing a jumper a much more entertaining task.

LOL, best wear a beanie or get a bandanna ryan. ;)
Heard nothing from Dave yet, i've got the image of him crying into handfuls of his cut hair in my head!!

After getting home I put on a Man United top and a beanie and you're spot on with the velcro effect. Gonna take some getting used to this...

"Heard nothing from Dave yet, i've got the image of him crying into handfuls of his cut hair in my head!! "

Funny you should say that mate you should see one of the pictures we've taken. It's exactly that!

I only have my skiing hat and it's not really cold enough for that just yet. When I was outside though I didn't really notice any difference.

I have a massive issue of keeping my hair primmed. As it's a mohican when it starts growing it will look shocking so i've got to keep it up, and then when I want to grow it back i've got to shave my mohawk down to match the hair.

Ryan you look good with no hair, keep it that way! :p I've been nicknamed McTavish already by those who have seen me. Stew's sticking with Stripe though, I guess I am a little gremlin at heart. Anyone got my predictions from the other day or am i going to have to do it again?

Posted on 17 Nov 2011 19:18:08 GMT
You'll have to do your predictions again Stripe, I did because I couldn't remember mine!!!
But the fresh start it gives me a chance to recreate the Jelly wrestling. :)

Heh, cheers mate. I am warming to it but I'd still prefer to have long hair. Get some pics up though you slag!

To be honest I didn't even realise you'd done any predictions yesterday. I did mine again this morning though.

Just watching the reserves vs Wigan. 1-0 at the minute, brilliant goal from Ravel Morrison. 40-yard through ball from Darron Gibson, Morrison charges it into the box and then suddenly pivots and lashes it into the net. Pogba had a freekick Ronaldo would have been proud of that was only kept out by an outstanding save from the Wigan keeper. And as I type this Morrison's just scored another goal, a couple of intricate passes at the edge of the box, Morrison pretty much passed it through a Wigan defender's legs and it trickled into the net, keeper rooted to the spot.

Jelly wrestling is and will forever remain FTW.

Yes, my second greatest contribution to the forum "Jelly Wrestling" is coming back!!!
I won't stand by and watch amazon destroy all we've created, so i'll do my best to remember the rules and the fighters. Any disputes between us, or if there's a draw in the prediction scores then it goes to jelly wrestling.
You each choose your champion and have them wrestle for your honour. ;)

Watching Children in Need Rocks. All I've gotta say about it is... I f*cking hate celebrities preaching people to donate money.

That is all.

Oh and Tulisa off Ndubz is RED HOT! Soo chavvy but there's somin' about her that tingles the old penis.

The thread's gone, can't remember the name of the guild now either. Sorry mate. Might be worth searching a couple of names on the site.

Hopefully pics will be up tonight boys. My sisters boyfriend took the photos and is uploading them. I tried with my camera but it's just blurry so didn't think there was much point.

Anyone see the story about the Irish fan who dressed himself up in an Estonia tracksuit and a clipboard and blagged his way to the Estonia dugout to watch the game at the Aviva because he couldn't get a ticket? Brilliant!

Blatter really is a moron and a relic who should have gone ages ago.

Sad thing is that even if he does go it'll only be Platini who takes his place and he's nothing but Blatter's puppet anyway so things'll be no different
