    Convert that 110,000 into a stadium, please.
  2. Soldier killed

    Nice to see the Help For Heroes website shop has been crashed for 2 days now. Assuming it's because of the sheer volume of hits.

    Lee Rigby. Leaves behind a 2 year old kid. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-22644857
  5. Summer Transfers 2013

    Tried to check them out on Wikipedia. "In July 2009, Ricardo Gomes was replaced by former Cannes and Rennes coach Guy Lacombe, inheriting a youthful squad featuring numerous highly lauded youth team prospects, including Cédric Mongongu, Serge Gakpé, Vincent Muratori, Frédéric Nimani, Nicolas N'Koulou, Park Chu-Young, Yohan Mollo, and Yohann Thuram-Ulien.[12] Lacombe led Monaco to 8th place in Ligue 1 in his first season in charge, but he was unable to replicate this performance in his second season, and was sacked in January 2011, with Monaco in 17th place in Ligue 1. He was replaced by former coach Laurent Banide, who was unable to turn around the club's fortunes; Monaco finished the 2010–11 season in 18th position, thus becoming relegated to Ligue 2. They still are the worst team in France" Helpful.
  6. That's what it boils down to. I'd rank Gerrard, Scholes and Beckham and the top 3 in my lifetime. And they all came through in the 90's/early 00's

    Who's running the show there these days?
  8. Carroll`s career so far in Liverpool

    I'd have him back for £10m max.

    Her player of the season has been there since January. "Louise Taylor Journalists reporting on Premier League teams being invited, as happens at certain European clubs, to eat training ground lunches with players as part of an obligatory extension of current weekly press conferences. With increased trust unlikely to be abused it could only erase paranoia, increase understanding and enhance coverage." Her change for next season is to be invited for dinner at training grounds? THAT'S what needs to be changed to make football better next year. Mind, Barney Ronay's "Relegate five teams" and Jamie Jackson's "Cameras in changing rooms, please" aren't much better.
  11. Giggs, Scholes, Keane, Beckham. That was a decent midfield. Technique wise he's probably the 2nd/3rd best England's produced since I started watching football in the late 90s. He's got a lot of admirable qualities but I reckon he falls just outside the "great" player bracket.
  12. Ashley's £1m givaway to non-players

    They're the cunts for getting their hopes up in the first place. Cunt maybe harsh. They're idiots.
  13. Vlaar scored a canny goal.
  14. Newcastle V Arsenal

    Didn't see a single Hulk out there today.
  15. Newcastle V Arsenal

    We've beat Chelsea and Tottenham at home, so it wasn't impossible. 10 goals conceded in the last 3 games at home. Ironic our away results kept us up.
  16. Newcastle V Arsenal

    I'm not sure what you were expecting from todays game. Arsenal were the disappointing team.

    Who's wearing the Uggs? Torres?

  20. Player of the Season 2012 / 2013

    Most Improved. It's more of an insult than a compliment.
  21. Other Games Other games

    Torres made hard work of that.
  22. New Strips?

    No point in changing clothes for a photoshoot if you're shoulder is fucked. Raising his arm above his head will still cause agony.
  23. Alan Pardew - Poltroon sacked by West Brom

    True, but he'll be 3rd once Wigan are relegated.
  24. So it hasn't increased? What should we have paid for him?
