So in a fortnight where a horde of bands split up; The Music (who finally took the long road and walked it), The Bluetones (until they make a slight return), and TheHolloways (erm..Generator?);idle gossip moved this week to the reformation of the greatest band from my youth, the mighty Stone Roses.
They are even bigger United fans than me and their seminal tune “This is the One” proudly blasts out of the speakers in the Theatre of Dreams, drowning out the sound of Glazer groans and the munching of prawns from the boxes. Those corporate fans don’t keep it real like me, I’m even growing a G-Nev goatee this weekend. I will update you all next week.
Mani was once quoted as saying: “Sure we’re gonna reform, as soon as City hold up the European Cup.” THEY have been on form but they should stop playing online bingo, if they haven’t already, as their luck will run out surely. For a kick-off, they’ve never released a tune that matches Come on You Reds, saying that, neither has The Music or The Bluetones.
My son Eric7 is too young to appreciate The Quo, but he was once too young to appreciate the taste of Bitter Ale and that soon changed. Talking of change, there’s been a lot of chopping and changing in the pundit world. No one really misses Sky’s very own Tweedle-dee and tweedle-dum but we need an authoritive anchor, I love Stelling as much as the next man and sexually-harassed woman but his mind seems to be elsewhere, probably that Countdown bird. My facial hair apparent, G-Nev is cutting his crooked teeth now but Andy Cole would be great for the role, as this shows, he is a man of many talents.
