  1. I'd agree with that. If things were going along fine, no one would care, but its when unpopular/stupid things happen the frustration rises and people want to know "how?" "why?" "What the fuck's going on?" Its understandable. I feel like that, I'm sure we all do. I think being rational, you can't ask the club to come out and explain every decision that's taken. But thats not to say that there can't be/should be some increased dialogue/forum. Thoughts from last night. I think it was largely positive, a lot of great points and enthusiasm for NUFC fans of all points of view to work tog
  2. My purchases in the last couple of days. Fender Mustang II amp (40w) Squier Classic Vibe 50's Telecaster
  3. Not a lurker so much, but it's been a while since I've posted on here.
  4. Got one of these a few weeks ago. Its a Yamaha Guitalele, and as the name suggests its a Guitar/Ukelele cross. It's the size of A concert-sized Ukelele and it sounds like a Ukelele, but it has six strings, and you play it like a guitar. In its natural tuning it's like playing a guitar with a capo on the 4th or 5th fret. It's great. Very light, very portable, decent quality and reasonably priced. Windows sell them for £65, but if you look online, you can get them even cheaper. And with it being a Yamaha, it's well-made. In fact, it'd be superb to give to young kids, get them started
  5. Tons of pet hates. Loads already mentioned like Cyclists riding on pavements, people going out wearing Pyjamas (in fact pyjamas in general are a pet hate), people saying literally when they don't mean literally (Jamie Redknapp on Sky does this, announcing how players are literally on fire, have been left for dead or only have one leg). As well as that, Checky Shirts are just wrong. Students who think that Heaton is an extension of the university campus. People who think it's perfectly alright to put their feet up on bus or metro seats. Stupid exaggerated pauses in every reality TV, qui
  6. Found out about midday. Gutted. Such a tragic loss. I don't think I've ever been as upset upon hearing the death of an ex NUFC player/manager. Probably because of his age, the fact that he was playing for us relatively recently and there were no (known) health issues. Then there's also the fact that he was such a fantastic player. The team was always the poorer when he didn't play. He gave his all, commanded the midfield, commanded the whole team at times, would battle and never shirk from physical encounters. And yet played with such style, flair and vision. He really was an incred
  7. I work in a benefits office and for about every 1 non-brit claiming benefits theres 39 brits claiming benefits. I don't get why people associate benefits and the majority of people being immigrants collecting them, baffles is tbh. quoted for truth.
  8. Feeling rather mixed. Had a shitty day at work as a load of us are getting moved somewhere we don't want to go. But at the same time it might be better off out of it, as there's a feeling more is coming. Feeling crap about it, but determined to turn a negative into a positive. And its also clarified what I was thinking anyway. That I can do better and should look for something else (not that its easy, but its easier if you have a job). Feeling canny about the match like.
  9. I made the step up to an SLR a few weeks ago and got a Nikon 3100. I've been out taking photos, trying out different settings and stuff. Mainly down by the Quayside/Bridges as its quite good to test different light settings. I had it up to SJP yesterday too.
  10. I've just got a Nikon 3100 for a few pence under £400. Very pleased with it.
  11. Bright Shiny Morning by James Frey. I was recommended it via Amazon, read the reviews/synopsis, bought it then never got round to reading it (I have literally have thousands of books). I've only recently got round to it, and it is immense. It's about various characters living in Los Angeles - from all different backgrounds - Film Stars, Mexican Immigrants, Teenage Runaways, Homeless people, Gang members etc. They don't meet each other, but it dips in and out of their lives. Some of them just the once, whilst others are followed throughout the book. It is just so diverse and very believable and
