No, not llort. Don't even think it.
I'm waiting for RTT to have a go at you now.

Nah, if I was trolling, I'd probably say something like "Kean's record is unacceptable, and any attempt to show that a comparable record was considered acceptable under a different manager will be treated as irrelevant and ignored".

But I'm not after going round that argument again, so I'll continue to contemplate the deeper meaning of the circular sentence instead... :hyper:

You look a little active for contemplating.

I would, but it's pretty crappy material to work with. Good to see you getting into the spirit of things and picking out these little anomalies, though... 8)

That's what you get for doing an edit to address the inevitable monkey business. However, a grammar error is probably not the same as suggesting that we shouldn't talk about the variables of the season based on some other unknown variable of the season. The first is a typing error, the second is a logic error. And RTT is never wrong, everyone knows that. Never never never.

Erm, what? You appear to have added a spurious comma into that quote and coloured it red. If anything, it should be "Then you're coming to the wrong place".

"You're coming to the wrong place, then" is just fine.

Not really. 'Then' being a preposition, it should really be at the start of the sentence (although common usage isn't strict on this now) and you certainly wouldn't put a comma before it.

But it's not only a preposition since one of its meanings is "in that case", which was the intended usage by the chimp fella.
