The Ryder Cup...
Started by: jarvo (28593)  Report abuse
How embarrassing.

An opening ceremony for a golf match?

At the millionaire's garden party: eleven hundred baseball caps, some well drunk, and some American...Say no more.

The wives look on, as their mega rich men rub shoulders with each other at golf's biennial highlight.

In the next 48 hours or so, the French will boo the yanks into oblivion...Or try to.

I'd rather not watch this hyped up pantomime. Just looking at the yank's dress sense on Ryder eve is more than enough for me...

Bring on Super League...Please?

Ugh!

ďIíd rather not watch.....Ē. Well then, why did you? Youíre obviously very anti-golf, so stick to your midlands football club!

I'm with jarvo. Golf to me is like Formula one. It's all about big money and a sport for those with money. That's why I like rugby league. It's open to anyone to have a go and make something of it.

Terrific victory for Europe in the Ryder cup against the Americans..

Superb team play at a great venue.

Riveting television,sport at its best.

Kath...itís cheaper to have a game of golf than going to watch wigan rugby....donít try and compare...I know it seems elitist...I donít like that either

Posted by: Anne (3341)  Report abuse
Do any of you know of the quite good golfer born in Wigan who won the Portugal masters a few years ago along with several well placed finishes? He retired several years ago owing to the severe disruption to family life.
His parents are on occasions two of my cruising companions, not the mega wealthy at all.

Could it be Paul Eales?

Posted by: Anne (3341)  Report abuse
No, not him Roy. Try the initials D.L.

Posted by: kathpressey (4656)  Report abuse
roylew , Im taking about getting actively involved in the sport. My son plays golf and apart from the clubs and club fees he has to wear paricular clothes. . I suppose if your lad joins a boys' rugby team you ahve to cough up for the kit though....

Kath .


I play golf and have done for donkeys years .Tony Jacklins father worked at Scunthorpe steel works and look what he acheived from a working class upbringing.

I dont wear particular clothing ,just decent trousers and polo shirt and a pullover if cooler.

One reason why i play golf and love playing is that i can play at all the top courses in g b on payment of a green fee ,including at St Andrews the home of golf

Grimshaw,
Apart from a change of footwear you can wear the same clothes that you shop in or go to a football game or the pub.

Posted by: kathpressey (4656)  Report abuse
My son can't wear jeans or waterproofs. No sports tops - not even a Wigan shirt!

Posted by: grimshaw (1198)  Report abuse
Spot on broady.

25 sovs and you can be kitted up .its only to look half decent on the course .

Imagine the uproar at say wimbledon if a player walked on court looking as though they had been dragged through a hedge backwards .

B t w broady whats your take on the utd situation.

Posted by: laughing gravy (3850) Report abuse
grimshaw want to know the trafford situation ask me!! for two years now i've said pogbad is crap and moanio would not win the title at trafford yet you laughed at me and said i know nowt abot football!! WHO'S LAUGHING NOW?

Posted by: jarvo (28593)  Report abuse
Utd fans should put up and shut up.

The club has no right to success.

The have 'roughed' it before in the second tier under the Doc, and they came out of it stronger.

Stick with one of the world's best coaches. What's the alternative at the present moment?

Posted by: laughing gravy (3850) Report abuse
trouble is jarvo they keep parking said coach on the pitch..

Posted by: jarvo (28593)  Report abuse


Maybe.

Posted by: broady (13699)   Report abuse
Grimshaw,
I find it all difficult to fathom out. Is Pogba a disruptive influence or has the manager lost the dressing room? I have to admit I have never been a Pogba fan. Bailley and Lindelof look out of their depth. Having said that JM was responsible for signing them all. Is the manager talking rubbish just to divert attention from a poor team? I do know that apart from City last year I donít recall getting too much enjoyment from watching them and their style of football. Was always impressed with Sanchez at Arsenal but he looks completely out of sorts. They are too big a club too let it go on much longer.

Posted by: grimshaw (1198)  Report abuse
I agree with your sentiment that it is difficult to fathom out .

If player power is the reason for recent results then it is essential that the board back the manager otherwise his position is untenable and a form of anarchy will reign.

Fergie sorted out the dressing room when he took over with the backing of the board .

We had dark days in the past and came back stronger .

No reason why it cant happen again.

"We had dark days in the past and came back stronger"

DARK DAYS?!!

yoonited are just five points off the top four, have some of the best players in Europe watched in an almost full stadium, they are in the Champions League coached by a supposedly world class coach and a couple of wins away from back in form.

AND YOU THINK THESE ARE DARK DAYS?!!

Heaven help you if you drop to division three and play in the Autowindscreens Trophy.

Those days would be pitch black to you....but were good fun to some of us.

Forgot to ask how things are in Hoffenheim today ,imagine you are looking forward to the berties v a village team.

No doubt you will have taken the an flight from M C and taken advantage of the German hospitality and sink some local ale.

My dear old dad visited the area in the early 40s to sample it .

Bit different then .

Posted by: laughing gravy (3850) Report abuse
grimshaw you have no excuse for not going to trafford theres loads of tickets left and there on sale till kick off,so you had better get your skates on...

Posted by: grimshaw (1198)  Report abuse
The Hoffenheim club are completely mystified at the lack of interest in the game by the bertie supporters given that they are always shouting they are a big club.

A load of tickets returned apparently .

Its obvious the bitters have stayed at home so they can watch Utd on t v .

Bitter berties .big club my arse

Posted by: laughing gravy (3850) Report abuse
a man whos stayed at home claiming people have stayed at home ARE YOU BACKWARDS GRIMSHAW???

Posted by: grimshaw (1198)  Report abuse
Just had a coffee at the lowry.

Bet you cant wait for 7.45 to come round just to re- fuel your sad obsession .

The bertie game is on t v and nobody was taking the slightest interest in it .again..

Posted by: laughing gravy (3850) Report abuse
I BET YOU WONT MENTION ALL THEM EMPTY SEATS YOU'LL SEE INNABIT...

Posted by: grimshaw (1198)  Report abuse
JUST leaving the lowry for the short walk to the stadium.

The talk here is that a crowd of 65.000 + is expected.

25.000 more than the crowd at the council house last C L game .

So laughing stock .predict the crowd at O T THIS evening .

given your extensive knowledge you should get it spot .on,

Posted by: jarvo (28593)  Report abuse

If I were City fans I would be beware....when a team hits the pits big changes will come...enjoy while you can

Posted by: laughing gravy (3850) Report abuse

Posted by: 0 years (2936) Report abuse
The last time yoonited "hit the pits" they panic hired MoaninhoÖ....now he really IS the pits!

Posted by: grimshaw (1198)  Report abuse
The last person who should be passing judgement on clubs hiring managers is oyears given the number of managers the berties have hired over the years during which time they sunk to the third tier of English football and in one season alone hired 5 managers and seven in the 80s..

...He hated golf as well.

Posted by: grimshaw (1198)  Report abuse
Lots of golf haters .normally they cant rise to the social scene in the 19th .

You are clearly not alone .

Its all about opinion re Horton.

Mine is different to yours .

You can come caddie and earn a few sovs .

So, what do we have here, a managerial version of Top Trumps?

Much of what Chatty and LG have said is fact, as is the fact that Moaninho is bobbins.

However, I for one think he is doing a great job.

SAVE OUR JOSE!!
