  1. Northumbria's "Finest"!

    I know that there two sides to every story but please look at these threads, two from the SMB and one from their own website and then see what you think. I was not there, so cannot comment on that incident but, having seen these thugs in action before, I can say that the cancer that seems to be ingrained in Northumbria Police needs cutting out! http://www.readytogo.net/smb/showthread.php?t=431176 http://www.readytogo.net/smb/showthread.php?t=430927 http://www.northumbria.police.uk/details.asp?id=16929 Some of the stories are horrific, along with the video evidence of large pools of blood, together with sight of an "officer" kicking a guy on the ground! No doubt, as the SMB threads claim, that all of the C.C.T.V. cameras will have have, either, not been operating or that there was a "blind spot"! Bassas!
  2. Tim Krul - How good is he?

    I know that the guy received "rave" reports after the West Brom game, but I've never seen him play. Of course, newspaper reports are never reliable. But, if there is anything in this I would appreciate an appraisal of his strengths/weaknesses. Thanks in advance. http://www.shieldsgazette.com/nufc/Arsenal...-off.5546827.jp

    Me a "wind up" merchant? I don't think so. You, on the other hand, don't know when to stop!
  4. Lee Cattermole

    Not at all, because I will never defend any hooligan either. What I do recognise is a keyboard warrior who is not fit to be a mod/administrator. Please combine sex with travel, in short jerky movements and (unless you have something constructive to add) please don't reply to my posts in future! I find you an embarrassment!
  5. Northumbria's "Finest"!

    I shouldn't ask but I will. Who looked confrontational?
  6. Northumbria's "Finest"!

    I take your points on board marra, but I've been to Cardiff & Swansea, without feeling intimidated by the police. Never have I been to Glasgow (for a match) but I hardly think that 2 -3,000 SAFC supporters would be classed as "small time", as it is far more than a large number of SPL teams get playing at home. It would, I think, be intereresting to see the average number of away supporters attending Rangers/Celtic matches, in the SPL. Also, if Strathclyde can handle (around) 3,000 without problems (no herding and with smiles) how come Northumbria could not handle 40 to 50, without confrontation?
  7. Lee Cattermole

    Good god, I am shocked and need to lie down. That has to be the first sensible, none hate filled post, I can remember seeing from you. Welcome to the Damascus road. We'll, presumably, be seeing you in an SAFC top, as the next stage in your conversion!
  8. Northumbria's "Finest"!

    I'm glad someone finds it interesting Anyway, don't you live in Thailand? Therefore anything you hear is 2nd hand anyway. Bit of a myth to suggest Celtic / Rangers and Cardiff etc. don't have loads of bother as well. Cardiff are notorious for it. Aye marra I live in Thailand but have found this crazy! I made my position clear, in my opening post - http://www.toontastic.net/board/index.php?...t=0&start=0 I have, though, seen "first hand" the way certain police forces treat people, with their only (apparent) crime being that they support a football team and if an INDEPENDENT investigation finds that any of "our lot" were responsible then I will be the first to condemn them. Regarding your latter points, about Celtic/Rangers/Cardiff/Swansea, it seems that you missed my point. Why is it that they, very rarely, seem to have problems on their "home turf". Only away? SAFC supporters were praising Strathclyde to the eyeballs, for their (seemingly - I can't believe that it, really was) relaxed attitude. No "herding", no "confrontation", just good seemingly good, old fashioned, policing! Whilst, no doubt, utilising all of the modern facilities available, without them being used in a "confrontational" manner.
  9. Northumbria's "Finest"!

    What I find interesting is that Northumbria Police are now changing their tune, whilst attempting to hold the high moral ground. 1) They are now claiming that they had officers injured - Yesterday their press release did not make that claim, stating (only) that Earl, Cleo and her two brothers Floyd and Diesel were battered and bruised after they were kicked by fans intent on violence and stamped on while on the floor. 2) They have, also, now started to claim that They had "intelligence" (contradiction in terms maybe) that there was a planned "meet" between SAFC and NUFC supporters, at Central Station. Now, that is, really, a wierd one as the only SAFC supporters on the train expected it to go directly to Sunderland and not Newcastle - It had been announced that it would at half time, adding that all SAFC supporters were urged to change their previous arrangements and utilise it! 3) They have referred it to the IPCC. They have done that knowing that it was being referred anyway. Why is it that other police forces seem to have learned that successful managing (policing) is best achieved by adopting a friendly, smiling, helpful approach? I refer, particularly, to Strathclyde who have to handle Celtic and Rangers fixtures, together with South Wales Police (Cardiff & Swansea). They don't seem to attract negative publicity, nor have major problems. Northumbria, South Yorks and The Met seem, though, to have ongoing problems. I wonder why should that be?
  10. Northumbria's "Finest"!

    I never said that, because (as, previously, stated) I was not there, so could not pass judgement on this, particular, incident. You, however, seem happy to continue making a prat of yourself, despite having the same restraint. C'est la vie! Looks as though the other side of the story is getting into the papers: - http://www.chroniclelive.co.uk/north-east-...-name_page.html I think that the "journalist" responsible for the article (Sophie Doughty) is an absolute disgrace to her profession. All she has done is to take the NP PR statement (which I linked in my opening post) and then embellish it, but then embedded a video (on the website version) which negates the "thrust" of her own story - witness the "officer" kicking a guy on the floor, the size of the pool of blood (approx. 2/3 feet across) and the attitude of another "officer", late in the video, when he realised he was being filmed! I would repeat that I have no sympathy for any hooligan (SAFC, NUFC or any other) who sets out to cause trouble because he (or she) deserves everything that comes back but sometimes the police "screw up" and allow their own thugs to run riot. As I said in my opening post, I was not there but I think that what happened last Saturday is going to have major repercusions for NP. I just can't see how they can wriggle out of it, no matter how much "spin" they attempt to put on it! p.s. Ketsbaia, please don't feel too "dirty". I think most genuine guys would feel the same way as I certainly would if "yours" had been subject to the same treatment!

  12. Northumbria's "Finest"!

    I couldn't agree more but, if you had bothered to read the accounts before you attempted to pontificate/make cheap points you would have realised that there were only around 50 SAFC supporters on the "soccer special", who were faced by 20/30 police plus unmuzzled dogs. I think that negates just about every word you have written!
  13. Northumbria's "Finest"!

    Ok marra, I am going to bite - You've been fishing for long enough! Please read the threads and then you will prevent yourself looking, repeatedly, like a moron. Your last point (regarding transport) was asinine - the SAFC supporters were told (announcement at half time) that a "soccer special" had been laid on, from Edinburgh to Sunderland and requested that all SAFC supporters utilise it. This turned out to be a complete lie - it ran to Newcastle and ONLY those that boarded it had a problem. Fortunately, the majority of the 4,000 or so SAFC supporters attending the game chose to ignore the offer/request and continued with their previous arrangements. Those arriving in Newcastle before (or after) the "soccer special" walked through the Central Station without any hassle from the police, or anyone else. The "soccer special" (which contained only around 50), however, seems to have been targeted. As I said, please read and learn!
  14. Northumbria's "Finest"!

    Only reason there's any coverage is cos it happened in Newcastle. I've seen that photo before it was used in the thread on the SMB and then used twice on here. I could be wrong but is it not something to do with the Roma Ultras? Nobody will ever get me to condone any form of football violence but something (for me) smells here! So many first hand accounts, so much video and then the police put out a statement accusing fans of attacking police dogs! Can anyone, seriously, believe that? Sure, 40 Sunderland fans decide to attack 20/30 police (with unmuzzled dogs) and succeed in damaging/injuring the dogs, with no mention of the 4 guys put into hospital, the others with dog bites and the pools of SAFC fans' blood on the concourse. I could be wrong but I think that (finally) Northumbria's Finest are going to get what they have deserved for many years. This case WILL (despite their attempts) make the courts, with the resultant media coverage - The SFS are now heavily involved! Strathclyde & South Wales Police have to look after (police) games involving, arguably, some of the most passionate/volatile supporters in the U.K. (Rangers/Celtic & Cardiff/Swansea). It seems that they have learned that the best approach is to be friendly, smile, be helpful and only as a last resort confront. Northumbria & South Yorks, it would seem, have much to learn. My attitude would be exactly the same if it had (with the same, apparent, evidence) involved supporters of any club - Including NUFC!!
  15. David O'leary

    Total rubbish That had better not happen, its my worst nightmare FFS!!!! Even I would not wish him on you marra. I would love to be a fly on the dressing room wall if it turns out to be true. He will command no respect and then continue with his normal trait of blaming the players (publicly) for his own failings!
  16. Carroll next?

    I would be surprised if the story was true, given the story in the Daily Mail today (I know! Daily Mail) Thai time. This one, though, sounds as though it could be based on fact. Premier League clubs on alert as West Ham set to lose £10m Upson By Rob Draper Last updated at 10:49 PM on 08th August 2009 West Ham are set to lose England defender Matthew Upson after the club’s cash-strapped Icelandic owners ordered them to raise £10million from player sales before the close of the transfer window. Despite previously stating that Gianfranco Zola would be under no pressure to sell players, Icelandic bank Straumur, who own West Ham through CB Holdings, have told chief executive Scott Duxbury he must raise cash in the coming weeks. Straumur are desperately trying to stave off bankruptcy by pacifying their creditors and Upson is the most bankable asset at Upton Park. The former Luton and Arsenal defender, 30, has previously been linked with Manchester City, in the event of Mark Hughes failing to prise Joleon Lescott out of Everton, and with Tottenham, but he might also be an attractive option for England’s four Champions League clubs. Duxbury will have 17 hours longer than previously expected to raise the £10m because the Premier League have decided to extend the transfer window to 5pm on September 1 to take account of August 31 being Bank Holiday Monday. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/...-10m-Upson.html
  17. Taylor talks to the Times

    I don't think so marra! Please read the article again. He talked about training - sure, but then went on from that to say "“When Alan came in with Iain Dowie, he got us playing with a smile on our faces again. We had a bit of fun, but when it came to the serious stuff, we did it". If training is the "serious stuff" then, yes, I am a "twat". I, though, think training is a prelude to the "serious stuff", where points are at stake. We, obviously, will have to agree to differ on that!! He's clearly talking about Shearer sorting out the ridiculous state the club had been brought to morale, discipline and training-wise by the series of Keegan leaving/no manager and up for sale/JFK and still up for sale/JFK getting ill and no manager (although if rumours are true JFK was basically the same as no manager).... which, of course, goes on to effect results on the pitch. Not stating that Shearer's run of games was somehow "successful". So yes you are a twat. It seemed, for example, bizarre how they kept fucking up set pieces in the same way and giving really soft goals (and even did under Shearer IFRC), but given what he's saying about training it's probably a miracle we didn't concede even more like that. Cheers marra. One question though. When is it serious for you? Training or matchday? A one word answer will suffice. Quite clearly both, why would you think otherwise? It'd would be fair enough to have a piss around whilst just doing general fitness work (and would in fact help the monotony), but pay quite serious attention when you're being drilled not to let another ridculously soft corner in, even if it's not "fun" doing it 50 times till you get it right. Or do Sunderland players habitually dress up in Laurel and Hardy outfits and only slip out of them for competitive games? I dunno marra, but that bit made me not only smile but giggle - girly, I know but! I reckon that we both know what it's like to have players extracting the water, as both clubs have had their fair share of them. My thoughts on serious, though, still stand. If this board (or any other) were to conduct a poll on what supporters considered to be the serious business, I think that, probably 90%+ would agree that matchday performances/results are considered serious in their eyes - training only can facilitate that and never be an end in itself. On the other hand, if I'm wrong this could be another Fine Mess You’ve Gotten Us Into!

I can see where you are coming from but, I would repeat (with qualification). When does it mean more to a player/should it mean more to a player? When does it mean more to you/should it mean more to you? Training or matchday? I know my answer to that. Matchday!!!!!! RK (allegedly) fell into the trap of selecting the "best" trainers, who then showed no balls on matchday! For me, everything else is/can only be a preparation/preliminary for that.
  19. Mark Viduka

    Hart issues Viduka warning Saturday 08 Aug 2009 Portsmouth boss Paul Hart has warned that he will not wait much longer for striker Mark Viduka to complete a move to Fratton Park. The 33-year-old Australia international has agreed a one-year contract with Pompey, but has yet to join up with the rest of the squad in pre-season training. Hart told The News: "We'll be trying hard with getting players in over the next few days. Expecting is a word I don't use anymore though! "We are trying and hopefully there will be something we can do before next weekend. "Mark Viduka has not come back from holiday. I'm not sure how much work he has done, but we can't wait until November to get him fit. "We made him a good offer which has been accepted, so I'm just waiting to see what happens with him." http://www.4thegame.com/club/portsmouth-fc...ka_warning.html This guy is a joke! I remember his escapades with Celtic - "Too upset to report for training, because of the war"! BTW, every team he has played for in England has been relegated! He has to be wank*r of the century!
  20. Mark Viduka

    I can see exactly where you are coming from BUT If the wank*r had taken the p*ss out of my club (as he did yours) I would hope the fecker died a slow, slow painfull death! Surely anyone with an interest in football could have seen that, following the Celtic "drama", he does not posess a heart (for football) the size of a pea!!

  23. Matchday

    Matchday, One thing Ashley can't fuck up Don't be so sure! Mind you, Taylor seems to like it as he seems to be developing a "semi stiffy"!! On a serious note, how many of your guys (supporters not players) do you think will be wearing it?
  24. Taylor talks to the Times

    That's the bit that gets me! If he thinks that by getting 5 points from 24 that they "did it" then he is suggesting that by obtaining 28 points (20.833% of those available) that would be acceptable too. I think not, daft tw*t!!!
