I don't think age comes into it.

None of the three, four. five or seventeen-year-olds I know would consider behaving like this!

Age is no barrier to being a dick. Either you are, or you're not. I've seen 50 year old men acting like utter twats at football matches...

That is because Newcastle owner Mike Ashley won't let Rafa buy any new players.  We got a good result against a considerably younger Watford side on Saturday!

Living in a densely populated estate as I do, this weekend was a reminder of just how many people are obnoxious, inconsiderate dicks.

Fireworks going off sporadically from 5pm to 3am Friday to Monday. Stick them all in a leaky boat.
