    Shearer | Owen

    I don't see Shearer scoring Saeed Al-Owairan's goal for Saudi Arabia vs Belgium at WC 1994, but he still clearly better than Owen.

    Trump: 2020.

    If he was an actor, his performance would be far better than that. Where did they hire him from, the hospital in Garth Marenghi's Darkplace?

    Shearer | Owen

    A maximum of "2" in a major finals tournament isn't incredible though.

    Shearer | Owen

    Owen was a fine goalscorer and could net at any time, like Lineker, but Shearer was the complete centre-forward, who you'd be confident playing alongside any creative player, target man or poacher. This poll is as one-sided as the "Cher vs Raquel Welch' one.

    Great songs by mediocre bands

    Yes, some ace tracks- Heads Will Roll, My White Devil (and The Cutter of course). I like Crocodiles even more. Their 1st four records were excellent. Ocean Rain was voted Album of Year in Melody Maker beating The Smiths debut into 2nd place and hardly anyone argued (I certainly wouldn't- it's...

    Rat Trap was good too. I quite liked She's so Modern but maybe it's because my elder brother had it on single (and the album A Tonic for the Troops), so good memories.

    Great songs by mediocre bands

    You've redeemed yourself with this...also "It's My Life" and "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood" were excellent singles.

    Terrible shout. One of the best bands of the 80s.

    Joy Division V The Clash

    Yeah, I agree, it's hard to compare them, totally different styles. I love some JD songs (Digital; Leaders of Men; She's Lost Control; Shadowplay) but the Clash's first 3 albums are so exciting and hearing them in their pomp just makes for a great listening experience. I have their cover of...

    2019 Albums, Songs, Gigs etc.

    Nice one. I saw them live in their pomp a few times (Manchester twice and when they shared the bill with Pavement in Liverpool). A really solid live band- and they didn't disappoint this time round either (went to the Leeds gig in June).

    The Doors v Velvet Underground

    The VU debut is definitely the best album that either band did, but the Doors overall body of work is better for me... but it's thisclose.

    CONSPIRACY THEORY: Moon Landings...

    So if we weren't there at any event, we can't be 100% it happened. So did the Titanic not sink then? Because I wasn't there either. You are some fucking dumb I can't believe it.

    CONSPIRACY THEORY: Moon Landings...

    You have to realise that the hapless wesshaw is a decorator who is so obviously desperate to be more intelligent, he thinks that some "alternative" opinion is the best way forward- and he looks even more stupid.
