Irony, thy name is Shearer

A certain musician's name is only two letters off a certain Geordie super hero...Hmm...From today's Fiver... "It was very disappointing to see you award Cormac Purthill the football yesterday. Either I'm missing the joke or his understanding of irony is confused. Surely it would have been ironic if Shearer's elbow had given out, whereas it is not at all ironic that it's his knee that's knacked?" - Mike Hinchliffe. [That's the last time we leave Alanis Morissette in charge - Fiver Ed].


  • Some more "irony" for you:

    The Bellion transfer is a cautionary tale of how not to conduct a transfer but also yet more evidence of Peter 'Kunt' Kenyon's utter incompetence. All United had to do to get the 'promising' Bellion for a small fee was acknowledge that Sunderland had offered the striker a contract and offer some reasonable compensation. Instead, to save further PR embarrassment, United shelled out.

    This was the same summer that Beckham left and the club failed to sign Ronaldinho. In fact it is a sad irony that they very amount United were short on the Ronaldinho deal - Kenyon offered £18m, PSG wanted £21m - was the amount they handed Sunderland on a plate.

  • Thank god for Peter 'Kunt' Kenyon, had Ronny D ended up at ot it could've been very depressing.

  • He would never have gone in truth, he came, he visited, he wanted a private copter and would have hated the weather - he would never have done it, just as well as he is sheer class.

  • Not only that, he would have had a difficult chore finding a proper dentist in Manchester (see local lasses/lassies for clarification).
