Liverpool And Arsenal Waiting For The Punchline

Neither are good enough to win the league says the Diary, as it ponders what has been so great about this season. Mourinho nailing Wenger is certainly up there...

@ray_bandana - satire doesn't need logic or reason. Often its angle is based on the ludicrous and illogical. Journalism is meant to do one of two things; inform, and inspire dabate and discussion. That you don't find this article to be rational or logical doesn't make it any less than what it is. I can generally tell the difference between a serious article, and those that are perhaps toeing the line a little. Some, it would seem, cannot.

Loving the diary yet again. It along with Big Weekend and W&L are the best things on here. Why on earth people still take it so seriously and react as if they are slagging off your mum rather than poking fun at the football clubs and their players and managers who we are all guilty of taking far too seriously, is beyond me.

@megabrow, if only, we drew 4-4 against the Germans, thanks in no small way to Sylvester Stalone (although Paul Cooper was in fine form that game too). Agree with everything else you say mind.

@HarryBoulton - the problem with these Diary365 articles is that it isn't an alternative argument that's put forward, but simply a series of controversial statements with absolutely no logic or actual arguments to back them up. I can get an unlimited supply of those on Twitter. The other F365 writers actually offer an opinion with some background, always interesting and often amusing, which is why they are much better received. I personally don't find much humour in something being written simply because it's untrue and fishing for arguments. The reason I read the Diary this week was because it was referenced in the mailbox, otherwise I've steered well clear. On the other hand, some of Andi's Profile articles have been pretty great reads, but then others slip more to the standard of the Diary.

@3pmuh...all things are relative of course..Colchester far exceed Ipswich in terms of failure, although the last thing you won was Escape to Victory wasn't it? Anyhoo...I generally very much like Andi's writing, although I accept that by the very nature of trying write something funny to a deadline there will always be an element of hit and miss. Andi Thomas is F365s Paulo Wanchop, and hooray for that.

Thats Harry, calm, unflustered and reasoned as usual. Bang on the money. Have you at 365 considered a column co-written by Harry and Andi to combine the best of both worlds. You could call it 'When Harry met Andi'

bobsy (Liverpool) says...

what makes me laugh is that people seem to think its related to the club you support that you don't find it funny. actually i am perfectly happy laughing at my club. there have been times over the last 20 years where laughing has been the only option. this is just not funny and actually the comments are usually much funnier than the column itself,. which is why i come back week after week. got to get my entertainment from somewhere...

I often get irritated with how people change their perception depending on how they choose to interpret these articles, and which clubs are to be the subject matter. For instance, if this were satirically written about City or United, I have bno doubt that the Scousers and Gooners would be queueing up on here to tell us all that it was funny and clever. But the fact that their teams are being psuedo mocked has some foaming at the mouth. I ask you all, if you have not "got" this website by now, what are you all still doing on here? You know the drill by now. This website, and its writers, love nothing more than playing devils advocate. They live for finding the alternative argument. That is why they love to fly in the face of the general medias opinion that Harry Redknapp is brilliant, instead taking what facts they can find and USING them to form an alterntaive argument. One that I happen to agree with, actually, but that's by the by. If you cannot understand or abide by the satiricial nautre of this websitem, go and read the Daily Mail. They love to take themselves very seriously, and so do their esteemed readers, who bicker and quarrel endlessly at the bottom of every article they publish.....

@megabrow. Conditioned to failure? You cheeky %&@#£$. You're absolutely spot on though, we're not one to 'wah wah wah' when 365 claims neither of us are in contention for the Premier League title.

I think the issue here, is that far too many people take football far too seriously. Liverpool being compared to a mullet! What's not to like? I honestly think, if you read the same thing every week, and get so angry about it that you put negative comments, there is something very wrong with your life. Interesting that those of us conditioned to failure (Col U, Ipswich, Wimbledon) tend to see the funny side of these articles....

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
