Re: Colonoscopy

Anyone had the pleasure of drinking Barium sulfate suspension? Tastes of Orange rubber! Yep. I had that as an eight year old up at the old Victoria Hospital so that they could x-ray my kidney function. Except the version I drank wasn't flavoured at all. It just tasted like rubber.

I think you'd better guard the touchlines, Sausage, when United visit the Turf, as we don't want to upset Pogba when he's taking a penalty... That's not fair. :-) It's perfectly fair to give a player some stick, e.g. "Paul, you're s**t" "Paul, you overpaid primadonna" But "...

Re: Crewe Statement

Aside from it being hugely insensitive to the victims of abuse, the club's obvious lack of remorse and current cavalier attitude to safeguarding means no sane parent would ever let their boy join Crewe as a youth player. I wouldn't let my son anywhere near the place.
