Stop bullying him.

Just cos he had the audacity to swim against the tide on one issue, you pick on him for everything.

Unlike you and your boring mates, at least he's posted something to pique interest.

You just post nothing, repeatedly, which is what we could expect from places like Oxford and Edinburgh etc.

Tory voting sick whackjob nothings.

"Swimming against the tide" is not the same as spouting sensationalist, alarmist, factually misrepresentative pish.

McLean's personal support is irrelevant in a professional setting (sensationalist), he is unlikely to have upped his form in the last few months just impress Sevco (alarmist), and his contract is not up at the end of the season (factually misrepresentative).

Incidentally, i suggest you check the political demographics in both Oxford and Edinburgh before you unwittingly fall into the same trap.

Saw Kenny McLean in a supermarket today.

Unfortunately by the time I had recognised him, the moment had passed as I had walked past him.

I should've said well done for last night... rather than I know a guy (on DT) who hates you.

It would have been good to say something positive to him whilst passing. I'm sure they appreciate stuff like that.

As opposed to the sad pricks who ask for selfies or who think they have a right to stop and talk to them.

:dunno:

Ok I got to spell it out. It's a nightmare for professional sportspeople getting stopped for autographs and selfies all the time. I would only have said well done whilst passing, without stopping to take his time, without expecting that he's got a duty to converse with a total stranger. What's so fucking difficult to understand?

McLean said: “Nothing has changed although I am now playing with a bit more freedom because I felt previously I was playing for my future.I had four months left on my contract and sometimes you can put too much pressure on yourself.On occasions I was probably doing that and trying too hard. It wasn’t bringing the best out in me but now I have my future secured I can relax and enjoy my football. That’s when I am at my best.”

Have noticed that McLean has upped his game since he signed for Norwich.

That quote is fantastic. I've just copied it and sent to a client.

Can I ask where you found it?

AFC Chat Forum

Thank you for ploughing through thousands of posts to find something that good, that interesting and for me, so relevant to a current situation.

And thank you for being able to discern the difference to pass on interesting stuff rather than ham and cheese bagel, a glass of water or whatever the fuck they had for lunch.

Pretty sure Kenny doesn't give exclusives to the hat though.

You are correct, joking about AFC Chat.

To be fair, the Sun probably did get it from AFC Chat.

Indeed. Aboot the only possible source of the quote that's less reliable than the Hat.

If you had bothered to read the article you would have appreciated that there was nothing unreliable about Kenny's words. And Bill Leckie doesn't have form for just making shit up about Aberdeen players.

Yes we know that Kelvin McKenzie is one of the worst reptiles ever to have breathed but he's moved on and unless we are scousers (who have an excuse for not moving on with their rigid unconditional unforgiveness and a predisposition for victimhood), we shouldn't just write off everything that appears in that rag of a publication.

This is an attitude that betrays great stupidity.

That's not "in my opinion". It factually does reveal an arsehole nature.

I know, I know, you weren't being serious but I've started so I'll finish...

It's called cutting ones nose off despite one's pineapple.

That was one of the most interesting and revealing articles on an AFC player that I can remember, ever.

Yet you won't read it because of the publication it appears in? Whack job.

It didn't cost me any money to read it either. I do confess to once buying a Sun but in mitigation, it was the bestest ever headline in any newspaper ever.

Do you mean "portrays"? Because I'm fine with betraying stupidity tbh.

I was of course being completely serious. I'm not interested in reading anything that's available in printed media. If the odd nugget of slightly less abhorrent "journalism" should slip through the net then that's just something I'll have to live with, isn't it. And I think I'll be OK. After all I am a member of an AFC forum which is apparently happy to sift through the shite and provide us with any interesting nuggets that do come up. The system works.

The problem there is that all the info we get is from said media. Usually starts in The Sun followed by the Daily Record than last of all BBC Scotland site. We also get other little gems on Twitter or Facebook from rumours heard from "someone in the know".

Quoting from either source is take it or leave it but does usually start some sort of discussion on a football forum.

Not true. I haven't bought a newspaper this decade. If I read one in a cafe or whatever, any decent "news" is only repeating what the TV have said this morning or what my wife told me was on Twitter/social media the night or day before.
