Seeing as our ruddy brave boys are in Bruges, I actually watched In Bruges (2008) for realsies. Crivens, there’s a lot of swears in it. You’d never think the main actor was the same guy who wrote the hit song ‘Happy’, although he did look quite pale and a lot fatter than I remember.
Club Brugge are Belgian so obviously the first thing that comes to mind is the classic Dad Game: Famous Belgians. The problem is that if you exclude Jean-Claude Van Damme, Hercule Poirot, Enzo Scifo, Sir Anthony van Dyck, Hergé’s Adventures of Tintin, Peter Paul Rubens, Kim Clijsters, Romelu Lukaku, Audrey Hepburn, René Magritte, Adolphe Sax, Georges Lemaître and Eden Hazard, you’re only left with Marouane Fellaini and Adnan Januzaj and apparently these both play for United. I’ve forgotten what my point was.
Vangle to mix it up by playing his 10 as an 8, 6 as a 4, 9 as a holding 7, his 7 as a progressive 11, the 2 and 8 as a pivoting 3 and 5 but with funnelled support from the 5 who is now a 2 but would secretly like to be a 6 that used to be an overlapping 10. PHILOSOPHY. 0-0 United.
My review of Secret Wars so far: pretty good but think Doom is gonna get his comeuppance sooner than he thought. Despite all his good intentions.
My review of United’s season so far: pretty good but think LVG is gonna get his comeuppance sooner than he thought. Despite all his good intentions.
My preview for tonight: pretty good but think we may get our comeuppance sooner than we thought. Despite all our good intentions.
(In all these scenarios I see myself as Old Man Logan, negotiating his way through the sometimes baffling things he sees i.e. an Age of Apocalypse where his “dead” X-Men are alive and kicking, a United side that seems determined not to play Ander Herrera. I should clarify I do not have an adamantium skeleton/claws but by typing ISIS, sure the CIA will flag this and get in touch)
Prediction: Logan to end up with young Jean Grey, Miles Morales to become *the* Spider-man. Never to use the word ‘comeuppance’ again. Di Maria to score his customary brace in a 0-0 home defeat.
I preferred Calvery and The Guard, the ones that the other brother did or something film knowledgey. I only use my telly for watching DVDs if the TV licensers ask you Mum, kay?
Note to self: Bloggerer idea… Some mileage in developing this Mum character; representing the comedic dichotomical counterpoint. No-one has ever thought of it. Mav. Love you. Love you more. Gedouddahere. No, you Gedouddahere. Etc
So long as Brugge also philosophise their strikers not to score, we should be alright. Unless you can get minus goals.
Just Wikd and nothing on minus goals.
Note to self: Business idea… gap in the foot sport market for minus goals. Genius. xx. Etc
Prediction: Danny with his cussing too. Vangle to philosophormorphise his boys into a team of awesome winners by playing the Rocky switcheroo. If he gets the VHS and notes my imaginary friend Kermit sent him in my dream. 0-0.
