He Bangs the drums

The past was his, the future’s his, you’re all out of time…

Photoshop wizardry…


What do you get the man who has everything? That’s the question that will have plagued the Manchester United boys when deciding what to get Ryan Giggs to commemorate his 20-years of service at Old Trafford.

In the end – according to the Daily Star – they clubbed together to buy him a £5,000 drum kit because he loves The Who, Deep Purple and Black Sabbath.

Anyway, The Spoiler vaguely recalls a story about Giggs meeting The Stone Roses (or maybe Happy Mondays) in a club (the Hacienda?) in the early 90s(ish)  and one of Fergie’s minions (or a doorman) appearing from nowhere to drag Giggs away from the troublemakers. Or did we make that up? It’s a possibility…

Help us out, please…

    Yea it was New Order at a bar in Manchester — Barney Sumner and Giggsy were in the toilets… ahem… when the doormen rushed them and kicked them out. Controversial.

    I meant New Order…

    But Giggs is the golden boy of English football… He wouldn’t possibly be sharing hoovering tips with Barney, would he? You’ll be telling me that his career total of zero red cards is a load of bollocks and that he actually got sent off for Wales next.

    There’ve been suggestions here and there but I never heard or read any ~alleged~ details so I always tossed (heh) them aside…

    How about a “Sorry” card to send to Davina?
