  1. I always walk slowly, sorry. I hate people talking with their mouth full. Fucking hideous and very ill-mannered.
  2. Benwell and Durham
  3. Surprised you don't claim to have seen them tbh. I did. Very good live too!
  4. So besides super7 no-one remembers the triffids? And yes Bury me was probably their biggest hit, that album Calenture was their first on a major label. Nothing Can Take Your Place was a great song. Didnt like Calenture etc. Debut album was excellent though. Got that on vinyl somewhere. Might dig it out.
  5. He is. Never heard of the fucker.
  6. Or his right for that matter
  7. No he never played in the Champions League for is, Ginola made his name in England for us, but many across the continent already knew of his talents. PSG weren't fantastic? That team could well have walked away with the European Cup back then. They had Weah, Rai, Ginola, Roche, Djorkaeff and Gomes, one hell of a team. Leonardo came just after too Ginola left. He was some player for them too.
  8. Thats quite a range............ Forgot about her
  9. Howay man. Carrot and stick. You're going to beat the players up after the commitment they put in yesterday? Win things? Are you in cloud cuckoo land? what happened to a few years of consolidation? We never "won things" with Keegan or Robson either, and they'd built some canny nifty teams over more than 15 games. No I'm not in cuckoo land. And I think you're over simplified what I meant. Win things as in be competitive against our opposition. By the way but wasn't one of Sam's aims/targets to challenge for the League and/or FA Cup??? To be honest HF, I just can't believe we've lowered our expectations so much that we applaud a performance because they played with a bit of effort and commitment, the very same effort and commitment they should giving to the club regardless. Are you disputing that this isn't the case? I'll always applaud effort and commitment. If players continue to put in that kind of effort individually, the cohesion will come with time. Sounds like basically you've decided Allardyce has to go and nothing he gets out of the squad will convince you otherwise? If we're only happy ragging on the poor performances and can't find it in us to acknowledge any improvement we don't really have the best interests of the club at heart and are writing the tabloids shite for them. I'd rather have a talented waster than a grafter anyday. I hate the 'commitment' shite some pedal. Thats why we are stuck with shite like James Milner etc
  10. True, but I dont really believe in those sort of things. I doubt he takes his foot off the pedal.
  11. I'm not demanding instant success, nor am I calling for his head. What I've said is that what I have seen thus far has been very worrying, especially considering the quality of opposition we've faced. We've seen no sign of effective tactics or team selections, something which should be fairly basic for a decent manager. What I have seen is a manager trying to implement a system that was successful with his previous club but simply doesn't translate to the squad of players we currently have and this has been evident in the performances and results this season. 14 games should be more than enough for any decent manager to see the mistakes he is making and rectifying them, if results and performances don't improve between now and Christmas then I'll be calling for his head. Well said, one thing that does amaze me is how poorly drillled our defence seems, virtually all of our senior coaching staff were defenders and recent performances aside, we have bought some quality defensive players recently, I just find it so hard to believe that we have seen no improvement with our problems at the back. We've not been playing with a fixed back 4 though, have we? Due to injuries there's had to be a lot of chopping and changing. When you combine that with the fact that they didn't know one another a few months back, I think you can expect us to be dropping a few clangers. EDIT! If there's one thing you could say about Bolton, it's that they were well drilled. They probably weren't 14 games after he took over there though. Bolton used to go on a run of not winning before going on a run of wins. They've never been consistent. Seems we're going the same way. is that right ? That is what I have heard when he first took over but have no idea cos I havent looked it up. They still did pretty well with him there. Just not sure about him at all.
  12. Bouncers are canny enough in hifi. The Asian one with the dreads is a good fella. The network of bouncers is small enough I guess. You up by the corn exchange when this happened?Sorry to hear about it. Rugby lads are generally a bunch of gay tossers anyway. Another public school game where folk bend over a lot - just like cricket "boy, get in the slips" Hope it sorts itself out.
  13. Played well, fair play to them.
  14. Might be taken out of context but he's still a horrible horrible man! Why? Because he supports a party which you don't? No, because he's a horrible fat baby who spits his dummy all the time and walks around with his head up his own arse What a load of bollocks, as usual. Both as biased as each other tbh. Bias implies lack of fact. Factually, Frank Lampard is a despicable cunt. No class, no style and an ego-centric tosser with no top lip.
