  1. Sunderland and Wigan with two golden oppertunites to drop us right in the mire. Of course that brings its own pressure on those teams. No doubt Wigan can handle it, got to hope its too much for the mackems. Astonishing its coming down to this.
  2. We're out the bottom three on goal difference, potentially in it by kick off. Nine games to go. We need to be winning football matches and we need to have our best footballers playing. Simple as that. Owen, regardless of his match fitness, needs to be starting. Martins up front on his own... we'll never see the ball. Same as last week, just when you manage to convince yourself that the team can get a positive result out of a game, Houghton manages to crush your hopes in one team selection (witness the ludicrous decision to play Geremi at Hull).
  3. If by a man’s work shall you know him, then you are a steaming great pile of horse manure
  4. Aye. I'm sure Freddie and Glen have one last gasp panic you've never heard of him X million pounds unsuitable for the Premiership that we'll never get rid of signing up their sleeves.. maybe even two. We might even lose a player in the deals, obviously depending on how time's getting on.
  5. That's what our defending does to you. 187753[/snapback] Our fullbacks need changing, not our centrebacks. 187756[/snapback] Yes, Bramble obviously fancies Babayaro, that's why he can't concentrate when latter is on the pitch... 187770[/snapback] No Premiership team with any intent on trying to win trophy's or consistently challenge for European competion would let Titus Bramble anywhere near there defence IMO. I would have happily had Woodgate at NUFC even if he was only going to play 10 games if it meant 10 games without Bramble playing. It concerns me that Glenn Roeder has such a high opinion of Bramble and has done for some time, even so far as recommending him to Sven a couple of season ago when scouting for the FA. Right Back, Left Back and both Centre Back positions all need attention. I would stick with Taylor and Moore. The rest I wouldn't be able to get out the door quick enough, as soon as suitable replacements were found of course! Not sure Huth was the answer (especially at 6 million). But then I've seen nothing in his in-frequent Premiership appearances to have formed that great an opinion on him. Our handling of the transfer market this summer has been nothing short of shambolic and IF this story today about Viduka (and offering Milner) is true its now hit new depths of absolute desperation it would seem.
  6. I see Anal Obnoxious in today's Evening Comical is saying that it is his 'understanding' that Martin O'Neil has NEVER been offered the Newcastle United managers position. (Its part of the story where he's trying to make a drama out of Allardyce's comments re Roeders coaching badges). And he expects O'Neil to confirm this when he breaks his silence after the appointment as the England manager, dont know if that's to Anal personally over tea and biscuits. Strange how a couple of months ago (sure it was a Saturday) he ran a front and back page 'exclusive' saying that O'Neil was a cert for the job and it was telling us that he was offered the job on the night of the Man City defeat. Quality journalism. Just quite how the red tops haven't come calling for his services is a mystery.
  7. Well Roeder has certainly done an excellent job so far, transformed us from relegation candidates to a team with chance of qualify for Europe, dropped Boumsong and has shown willingness to trust young potential such as N'Zogbia, Pattison etc. Got us winning the games against the mid-table trash we should be beating (apart from Charlton!). But, like most of us during the dark days I used to wonder what Shepherd was thinking of when he appointed Souness, after all, what had he done in his previous managerial career to suggest he could ever turn a Premiership club into a team constantly competing for Champions League football and hopefully winning trophy's. You have to ask the same of Roeder. What's the real difference? Is there one? If its true I cant help feeling underwhelmed, its not very ambitious, but then again we've unfortunately proven in the past that appointing the big name manager isn't always the guarantee of success we hoped it would be. But I just dont think this will be the right choice. Also, if it is to be Roeder, can we just wait until the end of the season. Sod's law dictates that as soon as the caretaker get the full time job the results go pear shaped!
  8. apparently Chelsea are to appeal against Boumsong's red card.
  9. Howay man, he'd just got us back in the game and you're basically having a go at him for celebrating the goal. 108263[/snapback] Not so much with Shola celebrating the goal, although he did seem to be very pleased with himself. I was just saying that as far as I was concerned I dont see the fact that none of his team mates celebrated with him to be much of an issue. Perhaps they just wanted to get on with the rest of the game, we weren't playing very well and still losing after all. Sometimes we can be too quick to read something sinister in something totally harmless. Of couse his team mates may well think he's a talentless third rate footballer.
  10. whilst shola was off dancing round the corner flag like he'd just scored the winner in the cup final, his team mates were quite rightly getting back to the half way line ready to carry on getting themselves out of the mess that their previous forty minutes worth of effort (or lack of) had got them in. nothing too shocking in it as far as I'm concerned. we were still a goal behind and there was a game to be getting on with.
