  1. It occurred to me that with AS & MG exiting the stage it leaves Eddie Howe ‘s position a lot more vulnerable than it has been. They appointed Howe, but now Howe reports ultimately to Eales and who in turn reports to “his excellency”….say If we spend as much as we can this summer and we’re 13th at the beginning of December we could see a change a lot more quickly than if AS & MG were there as a buffer..

  2. Well done England 😆 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 I had to work tonight then drive nearly two hours home 🥱so a bit knackered but just seen Watkins goal what a fuckin player man. His performance at Villa Park the season before last was the best I’ve seen from a striker since Ageuro used to regularly bum us to death . Lots of people phoning 5 live still not happy with Southgate and Kane though :lol:

    I hadnt heard that about investment being proportional to shares held. However, you're right that the Saudis have probably said if you're leaving now, this is the extent of your contribution to the growth of the club, and you can take your share now. 


    I'm sure they've made out canny for their efforts. As they should cos they've grafted their tits off. 

    They obviously did the first transfer window in the January after they took over but did they do the following summer too? 

  4. She’s very much had the overwhelming support of everyone. Maybe part of it is the next phase of what’s in store for us will be less popular with the supporters ie the installation of chaise longes in the East Stand where women in full burkas will sashay into the exclusive roped off areas baring bowls of olives and dates accompanied by pots of hot sweet Arabian coffee (nee beer like) :cuppa:

    :lol: what the fuck is happening here? 


    The lasses have signed Liz Kershaw’s daughter to play in goal. Hope the mother doesn’t appear at SJP

  6. 24 years of age… tbh I can’t think that I’ve seen him play (did he play for Canada in the World Cup?) but this sounds like the sort of signing that we’d make ie he’d help us get top 4 but perhaps not one to properly bridge the gap to Arsenal or Liverpool . We definitely need more backup for Isak.…scored the winner at PSG last season when Lille finished 4th…so there’s maybe something in it rather than him telling his agent to start agitating for a PL move..it is possibly both tbf :cuppa:

    Has anyone noticed btw that she's had to moderate her accent? She used to call schools skewls. For a while, even after she got the shadow education gig. 


    They're now schools. 

    She should get security minister at the first reshuffle. Anyone working regularly on Wearside and being able to remain in deep cover, giving away absolutely no hint whatsoever of their blatant black and white tendencies is a natural for the role.  Tbh she’s probably missed her true calling in life ie head of MI5 :cuppa:

  8. Imagine being this triggered :lol: TBF as these things go it’s fuckin legendary but he must’ve been seething for years..

    So you weren’t born in England, but lived in Newcastle as a lad?…

    mrs tbd gets hyper watching england play, odd really as she's generally not particularly patriotic. 

    anyway, for the greater good I kept mime internal!  :)

    I’d like to see England win but I always laugh when they get knocked out…. most folk on here are realistic but there is so much misplaced entitlement across the country that I just can’t hide my amusement….
