  1. I was home from Denmark a couple of years back and the wife and myself went to see Ricky Gervais at the sunderland empire. After the gig we got lost for a while trying to find where we'd parked. My wife, who's Danish, made my night when she casually said that she had been in East Berlin before the wall came down and she thought that sunderland look more deprived.
  2. Bit of advice for the pair of you. Straighten up your baseball caps, untuck your tracky bottoms from your socks, it's not a good look, and get a life
  3. Fucking hell this thread has made me seriously homesick. Left Newcastle in 1989 at the tender age of 22. This has brought back so many memories of simpler times
  4. That should endear them to the Leeds fans.
  5. Don't get why we keep going for defenders where that seems to be the best functioning part of the side this season.
  6. You cant really blame the players for that though can you? If you were told you were going to get £100k a week for doing what you do would you say "Nah" of course you wouldnt. I don't blame the players. You're right if some bugger would give me that kind of cash I'd rip their hands of as well. I blame TV and the governing bodies for allowing it to spiral so far out of control.
  7. Can't argue with that. Sums up pretty much why I've fallen out of love with the sport. I watch very little if nothing that isn't Toon related. Money has fucked up footall. Apart from the hooligan element the sport was much more fun in the 80's. Thickets earning 100 grand a week because they can kick a ball is fucking mental.
  8. .....and who are we going to play in defense pray tell?
  9. beckham had a huge hissy fit at the end of the first half... walked over to the supporters section of the galaxy and told them to fuck off... he then asked one fan to come down to where he was... the fan jumped the barrier and was escorted out... Yet some smart arse still took their kids with them wearing the Milan Beckham shirts!!
  10. I reckon without sounding pessimistic it's possible (no I haven't been doing drugs) we are coming to the end of everything, and the sad thing is if that's the case we never got to see us winning a trophy. Everything is bad in the world at the moment, 15 years ago everything seemed better, and a lot of the ills of the world are seeping in to football. When you're talking about £40m for an unproven Argentinian who I thinks shite anyway (Aguerro) you know it's fucked up. The only way football will get better is if wage caps and budget caps are implemented, otherwise football is dead officially. The whole point of football is competition. Between 1950 and 1980 there was nearly 20 different champions of English football, 1980-2009 there's been SEVEN, I don't mind when clubs win it like Liverpool did in the 70's, but when the whole thing is driven by greed at the very top of UEFA and FIFA you just think what's the point. The Champions League shouldn't even exist in my view. Agree totally. Everything that i loved about going to games over the last 30 year is slowly but surely being taken away. This money situation is fucking ridiculous, the world is in a recession then Real Madrid pay 80 million for one player who then claims he's worth every penny, BOLLOCKS. I still go games and watch and read all the news but i think it's the moth to a flame syndrome. I follow because i always have done and always will do but the love of the game of football for me is slowly dying. Money is killing the game and sooner or later it will all come crashing down
  11. Not holding my breath
  12. I wish this bollocks would sort itself out soon I'm getting bored.
  13. Something really fucking stinks about all of this
  14. Aye! You might be looking at our potential first team squad for next season. Wee Ken Jyn General Manager - Thailand I wonder if he's Scottish ? Litttle Scottish african bloke
  15. A big bet.
