  1. I think bringing new players in over the summer offers a psychological lift to the players at the club, and I think Man City might be case in point. They just haven't been as good, even though they easily had the quality not to have to buy. I'd put it down to lack of competition/assuming they'd made it/etc. You could maybe argue something similar for our lot due to our relative over-achievement last year. I don't think Pardew is the greatest manager, but he's the first one in a long time I've been happy to just let get on with it, feeling reassured that he wants to win as badly as we do.
  2. How is this still going? Also, I'd go for LBT though I know nothing of his political beliefs. It's the use of Bells that does it. I just don't get what point is being proven here. You've argued this point against almost the entire forum, pretty consistently, for 24 hours. Why?? It's not even as if this is a wind up, these are clearly deeply held, heartfelt beliefs. Also, the continuation of Nissan on our shores has more to do with favourable trading relationships caused by the EU than Thatcher. They would leave us in a heartbeat if the EU weren't part of the equation.
  3. How are you guys still working out who each other are? That'd be enough for me like, paternal club pass downs are legit.
  4. It's getting a bit scary now isn't it? 41 posts dedicated to the defence of Thatcher...
  5. My friend, Thatcher is not well loved in this country. I don't think a majority would profess to love her, and our comments here along with the thousands like them all over the country should be enough to show you that we are refusing to accept revisionist history. As long as we refuse to do that, she has not won. I mean for one thing, the Tories collapsed without her and allowed 13 years of Labour, which she was conscious for, and will surely have hated. She was demented by the time the Tories were in power again. She created the 'everyone in it for themselves' culture that has lead to ma
  6. She was a bitch for how many lives she ruined, not because of her funeral. The state funeral would have been from the Tories. But thanks for allaying my concerns, now I can return to my indifference to her death, and constant revulsion at her regime.
  7. Given that we got relegated not long ago I think it fitting that they go through it now. It's been four years or something for them hasn't it? Surely overdue. They yo-yo back up regularly enough anyway, they'd be back.
  8. Indifferent to her death, she was a bitch but meh. Better not be a state funeral though... given how many lives she destroyed it wouldn't be appropriate at all.
  9. That's true, but having watched with a grimace so many of Cabaye's set pieces, I think that for me personally, Marveaux is putting the ball into better positions. I think Marveux could come good, he seems to be working harder and he looked useful to me today (probably would have scored had Cisse not been selfish in the first half). I'm not saying he's anything special but he worked hard for once.
  10. I prefer having him to not having him. I think he offers us something in an attacking support role and he has the pace to break quickly. Obviously it'd be good if he scored occasionally. Looked pretty good against Fulham for the most part.
  11. He's a massive improvement on Cabaye for corners and set pieces, even if we still don't really get anything from them. Good player, enjoying watching him right now.
  12. He's scored 8 goals this year in the league which isn't great for a lead forward; but then perhaps you have to consider that he played the first half of the season out of position. I think he does work hard, he was running around everywhere and he always really wants to score. I'd want him to stick around too, he's an ideal forward.
  13. QPR are never going to recover from that. About time they finally gave up the ghost, especially as we still have to play them.
  14. Yeah maybe you're right. He's a liability in general, I wouldn't miss him. I don't think I've watched a game this season where I've thought 'Fuck me, wish Tiote was playing'. Would take him as a squad player but that's just wishful thinking really - I doubt we'd sign an upgrade.
  15. I dunno, I'd take a draw. I'm really torn in this relegation fight to be honest, I want all three of QPR, Wigan and Sunderland to go down. Reading look beyond help though, so I'd probably have to settle for QPR and Sunderland.
  16. I'd be all for getting shot of Tiote but I doubt anyone would cough up 20mill. Maybe 10 if we're lucky, he's not exactly had a strong season.
  17. I think beating Sunderland would do it actually. We'd be 8 points up on them with 5 games to play. Don't see them picking up 8 points in five games... plus that would be devastating to their confidence. Lose however, and we're right back in it again, making today all the more vital.
  18. From my point of view, the important thing is that we've just hauled Norwich and Stoke into it as well. Sunderland starting to look a little adrift down there now actually.
  19. Fucks sake, that could not have been much closer...
  20. He has scored 6 goals this campaign...
  21. I still think we'll win this although it'll be through good fortune rather than good play. And I can't see Chelsea sitting back against Sunderland for the second half either. Fulham haven't exactly made any convincing attacks, save for Berbatov - and even then, he's been marshalled pretty well.
  22. Why Cisse didn't square that to Marvaeux, I will never know...
  23. Can you imagine the shit we'd be in if we hadn't strengthened in January?
