Yea, 'cos everyone is dancing in the streets aren't they?! Reckon you could give the hyperbole a miss for a wee while?

There's nothing wrong with trying to be positive, enjoying a couple of wins and looking forward to what might happen. We all wanted better than where we are, but this is the reality of it.

But carry on with the miserable ol' bastard routine. It's not grating, not in the slightest.
Thereís nothing wrong with expressing negative feelings either. There is no rule that you must be positive about things.

Donít see any call for insulting someone who clearly canít jump on board with positivity about Allardyce. Disagree, by all means, but insults? Thatís just crass.

1. No, there's nowt wrong with expressing a negative opinion. After near 18 months though it starts to get dull.
2. Where's the insult?
Point answering? Ok..

1. Simon is clearly seriously unhappy that the club has gotten to this point. While he wasnít in love with Ron, itís beyond a stretch to say itís been 18 months of ďhyperboleĒ as you put it.

2. You donít consider ďmiserable old bastardĒ to be insulting? The whole tone of your posts to him in this thread have sounded quite insulting to me in tone, even if the language used was mild. Youíve basically called him out for not being positive, when there isnít actually anything to be positive about yet. If anything, our last two performances have suggested the negativity that led us to Sam was the hyperbole. But suddenly some are talking about us winning the derby and the FA Cup..

3. Telling the guy who provides us with a forum to give it a rest is just.. lacking class really. Just like Big Sam lacks class, which may be why some canít just say ďoh well, onwards and upwards!Ē over this.

I haven't said it's 18 months of hyperbole, it's 18 months of negativity.

No, not really. It's just a saying. If @Simon Paul offended by it, apologies. I doubt he is though. Maybe you are? Not sure why, as it wasn't directed at you.

It's not lacking class in the slightest, it's the same conversation as I'd have with anyone here, which is what makes this forum great. None of the admins or mods lord if over anyone (apart from @Gash ... the miserable Scottish bastard ;) ) and we can all have conversations here as you would do over a pint down the local. That's why I've been coming back for pretty much 13 years. So save me the appreciation lecture.

Actually, I wasn't lecturing, I was trying to reflect back the condescension dripping from your posts.

Fair enough on the 18 months thing, my misunderstanding.

And no, I didn't find it particularly insulting, and I was reasonably sure Simon wasn't crying about it. But my lack of class comment stands, as you've pointed out the mods and admins are very liberal. Which is why telling them to give it a rest because they appear to be harshing your buzz, is not classy.
