Wherever needed just click on 'show', it's well worth it.
Don't make the same mistake twice, there's plenty of new ones to choose from.

Those who choose to preach would do well to take note of their own sermons.

16 views. I didn't know there were 16 of us on this forum.

Ha, silly me, there aren't. 8 of them were me checking my spelling.  ;)

this guy called it right -      More of a Jimmy Stewart or a Martin Landau.
In the midst of winter, I finally learned that there was, in me, an invincible summer.

There’s no next time. It’s now or never.

classic!!   Great photoshop work!

 :D :D :D

That was funny, so was the statued one of him checking his watch. The actual staue looks like a peudo in a raincoat, and does have an uncanny resemblance to Mark McManus, raincoat and all.

yes it does.

the real statue is a very poor likeness.

the reality is, that Fergie will be hard to replicate in a statue, unless one goes for obvious things like his wrist-watch watching, or his chewing of gum.

and the club will not want such an official statue to go down that route.

Another case of modern - bland and politically correct.  Then again, Taggart has no positive posture or pose they could have used, unlike Shanks. That was just pure emotion. No gloating triumphalism, another favourite of Taggart's they couldn't use.

yes, that's the key problem, no positive memorable emotion from taggart.

maybe they could use the image of him walking along the touchline, pre-games, where he raises one arm in salute to the United fans.  I have seen him do that a few times.

he does actually smile for a few seconds each time.

It sums him up when attempting to find a positive pose to use. Great manager, utterly devoid of any positive or likable personality characteristics or traits.

Poor old Mark McManus, what ever did he do to deserve that.  ???

"I despair at our club we didn't get knocked off our perch we slowly whittled it into a serviceable dildo and f@cked our selves with it."

Every time I read that it's as funny as the first time.
