calling names just sums it up
Mainstand - just to clarify for you:
Me saying, for example, "Mainstand red is a dogshit-sniffing, panty-stealing groinal yeast infection of a man who wouldn't know a good defensive midfielder if he had to shit one through the second rectum he uses as a mouth" = name calling, and wholly unjustified too. Except for the panty-stealing bit of course.
Dodgydon saying the way you state your views on Mascherano makes you "come across as a bit of a twat" = blatant statement of fact.
You DO come across as a bit of a twat, that's why people keep pointing out to you that you're talking shite.
Now, we all love going against the world, and it's soooo satisfying to be proved right - like you were (in your mind, your mind in which no-one else was supporting your view) about Xabi and Sami - but sometimes that lone individual who everyone thinks is crazy and wrong-headed IS crazy and wrong-headed.
Like for example if someone on this board was trying to convince everyone that Tesco ready meals are the most delicious food on Earth - they would be wrong, and would come across as a bit of a twat.
The fact that every argument you make on this subject can, without fail, fit neatly into Suspect Package's flow diagram is surely an indication of your faulty reasoning.
Just admit the truth - you don't like Mascherano because you were once jilted by a stockily built Argie Gaucho with a winning smile and tons of enthusiasm and all will be forgiven. That kind of pain could explain your woes - as it is you do indeed come across as at least 'a bit of a twat'.
That just gets better the more I see it. Congrats to you Sir Suspect.
