Arriving very soon

Post by ellis9 » Tue Sep 06, 2016 7:22 pm

Arriving very soon at Welford Road is Ben Youngs and Tom Croft's speciality coffee and doughnut bar called 96.

Without trying to sound like Homer Simpson, mmmmmmm doughnuts!

I suppose that a similar bar from Messrs Harrison and McCaffrey would be called 910678? (I dread to think what it might be if Thacker was involved!)

I feel Youngs and Croft missed a trick in not putting the 6 and 9 the other way around!

Then people could say they are going for a 69 :smt003

I suspect that is the reason why they went with 96

But you always sound like what the marketing department of Tigers would sound like if they were not constrained by the law and good manners. Just what would it take for you to criticise Tigers; abduction of an opposition player, murder?

Huh? Where's that come from? All I've said is that a new coffee and doughnut bar will be at Welford Road soon. I like coffee and I like doughnuts. Put those together with Tigers and it's a very good experience.

It has come from every other post you have ever sent. My employer does stuff; they have people trumpeting it. We also get things wrong and spend some time admitting this and apologising. Ellis9 is clearly a child of Doctor Pangloss and Pollyanna who was given a "nothing LFC do is ever wrong" injection at an early age. This post will be re-sent after a 67- 9 loss to somebody when Ellis 9 claims it was a rebuilding exercise.

Please can we stick to topic rather than criticising the opinions of users. All users are entitled to an opinion, whether it is negative or not. Some users may only be negative, some only positive and some who give both views.

Old Hob I don't see your issue here at all?

No need to cry about it.

Old Hob, I am guessing you don't like the idea of the 96 coffee and doughnut bar then?

Presumably if Ben is in charge of service I can expect to have every other coffee either thrown over my head or at my feet :smt025

No, Ben won't be in charge of service as he is too busy being Leicester and England's first choice scrum half.

This is my issue; Dr Pangloss here will not allow any negative comments about LFC. Even jokes. It is insane; the Lubyanka occasionally criticised earlier Poliburo members

The comment was thrown up in the air and was waiting for me to hit it. That's what I did! That one was set up perfectly for me and you responded exactly how I knew you would. :smt005 :smt005

Lighten up a bit. This is a discussion board and me commenting just keeps the discussion going.
