See. Seeeee??? This is exactly the petulance I have come to expect of this lad.

Heh, also I forgot to ask but is this the right summary of your 360 purchase?
You ordered one from Amazon with FIFA 12. Your game was delivered to you but your console wasn't (which you anyway bought for more money than you should have) and by the time it arrived you had already told Amazon you wouldn't be accepting it thus getting a full refund. Then Chris sold you one for 50 pounds and it was dropped by some driver at your doorstep.

I'd like to say I'm done stirring.... But I'm not. I'm in that sort of mood today.

Me to:

EVERTON----------LIVERPOOL

Has the Olympic football team raised much debate in here?

.....Pretty much. The console I originally bought was only 127, it was FIFA that pushed it above 150.

From now on I'll be using Lill for all my gaming purchases though. Are you taking preorders on GTA5 yet?

Stimps, it has a bit, I personally think we'll do very well.

Morning all.

Heading off to see Example in a bit. First beer in hand.

Enjoy your weekends and remember 'use protection'.

Would be nice to see Becks, Giggs and Scholes as the 3 over 23's.
Immensly doubtful though.

Example? Your missus has you whipped mate.

RAB says:
I think it'll be Becks and Giggs, but I reckon the last one will probably go to a keeper. McGregor maybe. Hennessey would be my choice if he's back fit in time.

If my brother is my missus then yes, yes he does.

Prankster says:
Wow, I can't believe I got that right. I hope the console is fine without any damage. Also, GTA 5 is going to be DA BOMB! Can't wait!

Now friends, let's move on to the big questions:
El Clasico predictions?
Will Kaka start?
Will Ronaldo be substituted when he once again is having a bad game?
Will Madrid finally break the jinx?
Will Ramos & Pepe manage to stay on the pitch this time around?

Nah you're from Wales not Norwich.

RAB says:
The answer to all four is a resounding no. Sorry.

Posted on 20 Apr 2012 11:36:27 BDT
Is a shame its only being done now as there could of been some great GB teams over the last 20-30 years.
Yer McGregor would be a good shout.

Prankster says:
I am still going to say the first could be a yes. But if the 3rd is a no, I'd rather the first is a no too, heh. I do however feel, if the refereeing is a bit fair this time around, Madrid could get something out of this game.

I think the first is the most likely. Obviously Barca's a bigger test than Bayern so Mourinho might have been resting Kaka. I don't think Madrid will win though, Barca will be furious that someone managed a clean sheet against them.

Pepe and Busquets will collide and the world will implode because contact will have been made on them both.

EDIT: Wouldn't be watching it even if I wasn't away this weekend though. The Clasico bores me to tears. Really hope it doesn't end up being the Champions League Final.

90 minutes of play acting and the occasional bad tackle, fantastic

I hear Ashley Young will be attending to take notes

Prankster says:
Are you serious? That game is a blockbuster! There's always something going on and you can't deny there's good football played be it Madrid or Barca. As much as I hate them, Barca have played good football in these matches.

And yeah, Kaka probably will start this one. There has been an outcry over his continued exclusion and I am glad it's not just me.

I'm taking bets as to whom Pepe hurts this time. I won't be sad if it's Busquets though. He deserves a right kick in the backside.

In reply to an earlier post on 20 Apr 2012 12:50:50 BDT
El Clasico predictions? 2-1 Barca.
Will Kaka start? Yes
Will Ronaldo be substituted when he once again is having a bad game? No
Will Madrid finally break the jinx? No
Will Ramos & Pepe manage to stay on the pitch this time around? I dare say they'll come off around the 45 minute mark.

Wilshire > Clevs

You not thinking of getting a 360 Aamod?

I hope the 'El Classico' is just a massive royal rumble, rendering all players and managers injured for the rest of the season. Then I hope in anger the Real Madrid B team beat up the Bayern players rendering them also useless for the rest of the season.

Can't stand it. Not just the playacting, but the look of disgust when a decision doesn't go someone's way, all the whistling from the crowd every time anything happens... The pundits creaming themselves over Barca, being asked for the millionth time "Just how good is Messi?" That sort of thing. Just can't be doing with it.

Arsenal 2-2 Chelsea
Aston Villa 1-2 Sunderland
Blackburn 1-2 Norwich
Bolton 1-2 Swansea
Fulham 2-2 Wigan
Newcastle 2-1 Stoke
Queens Park Rangers 1-2 Tottenham
Man United 1-1 Everton
Liverpool 3-1 West Brom
Wolves 1-3 Man City

El Clasico predictions:
It'll look like a Wimbledon v Millwall game.
Plenty of bad tackles and bookings, with at least one red card.
Kaka on the bench, Barca winning 2-0.

Fulham 1-2 Wigan
Newcastle 2-0 Stoke

Prankster says:
I am surely not predicting a Madrid win but I dare say they might just come away with a point. I have to hope for that much being a Madridista.

Oh btw, you sure Chelsea can overcome Barca's B team at The Camp Nou? :P

I have a 360, man. Lent it to a friend's little brother last month and hopefully will get it back in a month or so. I have Halo Reach & The Gears Series waiting for me at home which I am itching to start.

Fair enough. But then the crowd reactions are actually quite a lot of fun in these matches. :P
