Alex Fergie alcoholic?

Post by Hard Cell » Tue Jun 26, 2012 1:36 pm

I've always thought he was for a while... Watching that documentary about Messi last night on ITV 4 actually confirmed to me that he indeed looks like an alcoholic and he looks like your typical homeless alki bum

He's got the nose and cheeks of someone who has drank at lot of Alcohol in his life. If his liver is knackered his blood will not clot very well when vessels burst etc and this shows mostly on the nose and cheeks.

Or he could just be old with bad skin?

He's known for liking a glass of Scotch as most Scotchmen are!!

Look at his eyes though, if his liver was badly damaged his eyeballs would be a shade of yellow and I've not noticed they are!!

How about instead we discuss whether 'Hard Cell' is the sort of username a drug addled peadophile would use?

What was wrong with Soft Cell anyway?

Questionable use of eye liner aside.

Andrea Pirlo doesn't like them. According to Phil Brown, anyway...

My username is a reference to "Splinter Cell" which is a huge popular game on consoles such as Xbox 360 & PS3... The original games appeared on PS2 and Xbox :P

I would not admit to being enthralled by kids games. Time to grow up? ;)

Growing up is surely circumlocution - it just means you're no fun any more.

Sitting in front of a screen forever playing call of duty and then musing about talking to people in 'the waiting room' like they are real buddies is just sad.*


*My limited knoweledge of call of duty is from hearing a sad and lonely work collegue bleat on about it endlessly (like me and venkys on here I suppose)

I went round to a mates house last night with a couple of mates, we system linked two 360's and had a nice little LAN left4dead party with beer and chilli.

My sister lives in Edinburgh and we quite often play Red dead redemption as a way of catching up. A gaming phone call really.

The only time gaming gets sad - as with any other activity, when it gets to be an all consuming obsession. Your attitude to it is the childish one Moon. :D

I am talking about an all consuming obsession. Give me a pair of boots, a map and a fell any day. There is nothing better than standing on the summit of a mountain with a sense of satisfiaction.

No pop, no pizza boxes, no stains on my t-shirt, no zits just tranquility :D

I'm not sure how referencing a computer game in a user name betrays an 'all-consuming obsession'? :yeahright:
