Haaaaaaa grin It was accidental apparantly. A 'technical glitch'. All those men really dissapointed (haaaaa).

YANBU, there is something really gratifying about pissing football fans off smile

CarGirl Thu 05-Feb-09 22:25:18

There is something gratifying about pissing football fans off, you are so right!

Who are Merseyside ??

spongebrainbigpants Thu 05-Feb-09 22:26:53

PMSL at your total lack of footballing knowledge!!

I HATE football! It show's doesn't it! grin

CarGirl Thu 05-Feb-09 22:27:51

DH wants to add that Derby played in a derby against Nottingham last night too grin

scrooged Thu 05-Feb-09 22:30:29

Ahh, we won! That's where I mixed it up.

I still hate football. I can't see the point in watching a bunch of overpayed monkeys kick a ball around a field. grin

MaryMotherOfCheeses Thu 05-Feb-09 22:31:01

LOL at Derby and Merseyside.

But why so vindictive?

I don't like football. But I can see why showing ads during a game is stupid.

spongebrainbigpants Thu 05-Feb-09 22:31:35

Yes scrooged, it does show, but it cheered my dh up no end when I read out your thread title to him! grin

(He's a Liverpool fan, btw, one of those pesky Merseyside teams! grin)

scrooged Thu 05-Feb-09 22:31:56

Not stupid. Funny!!!!! grin

Amapoleon Thu 05-Feb-09 22:33:40

Hahaha fantastic thread title grin

CarGirl Thu 05-Feb-09 22:34:34

I don't mind watching a "good/interesting" match but that only works if you're watching recorded stuff and someone tells you it's worth watching! All the diving and wasting time passing irritates me.

scrooged Thu 05-Feb-09 22:35:33

Ok. I screwed up the thread! blush

They should ban football from the TV. Not everybody likes to watch it. smile

2shoesformyvalentine Thu 05-Feb-09 22:36:30

no sorry yabu
imagine it was something you were watching and enjoying

scrooged Thu 05-Feb-09 22:38:11

Virgin do this all the time. Especially when I don't pay the bill on time. Bastards!

They interviewed a grown man on TV last night who looked like he was in tears.

What a life....missing a goal....boo hoo....

i'm a huge football fan and did enjoy this story. mainly because itv have been so awful already in their football coverage that this was the icing on the cake.and the idea of liverpool supporters in all the pubs looking up at the sceen in dismay screaming for the football to come back on only for it to happen and then their jaws hitting the floor trying to figure out what happened.

oh and because i watched it on setanta so my viewing was uninterupted.
