Off the Ball on Newstalk


#1

Ken Earley read out my jacket analogy from the Champions League thread on Off The Ball just now.

I am therefore delighted to announce that Newstalk are now the official radio partners of TFK.

With all due respect Bandage, it was shite. Laboured, didnt flow naturally at all. And you called it a parable!

TBH I thought for ages before I started posting here that yourself and rocko were the lads from off the ball

Fook You dancarter!

Analogy. That’s the word I was looking for. It wasn’t meant to be sharp and snappy though. It was a diatribe using the analogy as a basis to defend Celtic and get stuck into Manchester Utd.


#6

did they acknowledge the source of the analogy/diatribe/parable/fable/essay/myth/bedtimestory? or did you email them the link?


#7

Anyone care to link me to the jibe in question?


#8

Hey its a credit man
Stop knocking it.

Will you be applying for NUJ membership Bandy?


#9

truly a gold star for TFK to be mentioned by such an august institution.
surely you deserve a walnut whip at the least Bandage?

now if only they’d stick it to giles more often…Eoin

P.S. McDevitt ran a pretty good marathon last month too.


#10

Surely worthy of a book from the Off The Ball offices?


#11

Anyone know what’s going on here?

Anyone listen to the Podge Collins interview a few minutes ago? Fuckin hell if it had been Canice, there’d be all kinds of abuse fired at him.


#14

Jesus, it was like a bad horror film.

I caught the tails end of some rogbee pundit trying to explain that Irelan are in with a real shout on Saturday.

Was he for focking real or was it a sketch of some sort?
