Fixed for you.
May I ask what your addition of the interval between his accident and his final demise has to do with the observation I made?

The two may or may not be related, while the way you wrote it implied direct causation.
and that is relevant to the point in what way ?

I heard a snatch of Shay Given on some programme or other this week saying his muscular problems were related to his back.

Still love Vinny but he's like an elastic band that's been left on the window sill for five months.

That's a terrific analogy KS and, sadly, one that sums it up perfectly.

As a point being made that's the 'ne plus ultra' in this particular thread.

I have two masters degrees and I constantly hear I'm the thickest person some have met. They all happen to be Utd and Liverpool supporters, but that surely is just a coincidence. Well, so they say.

O Kaptain! my Kaptain! our fearful trip is done,
The ship has weather’d every rack, the prize we sought is won,
The port is near, the bells I hear, the people all exulting,
While follow eyes the steady keel, the vessel grim and daring;
"You sir, will either be hung as a traitor or die of the pox"
"That sir, depends on whether I embrace your principles or your mistress"

Carl's favourite!

Btw, Smallding should have been double yellow and red carded because he was hanging onto Vinny's shirt-tail, threw himself to the ground in an act of clear spurned lover simulation and is a useless cunt to boot who should never ever have been selected for England. Plus he was offside for his goal even though he shouldn't have been on the pitch in the first place by that time.

I am super happy for him and how he came back from the dead, so what it is next for the captain?
Is he staying? What you reckon?

I’m beginning to think he will still be here next season. Played well when called upon this season.

Whats this all about....of course he will stay.
Has someone (Vinny or a person actually in authority in the club rather than some bluffer on twatter) said he is leaving, didn't hear it myself.

We saw what the club did for Yaya as a sendoff - imagine what they will do for Vinnie when he eventually leaves... (kind of tells it's own story that he's staying)

With Peps rotation policy in defense it would make sense to keep him as a squad player. Aside from all the other reasons to keep him
