  1. Perhaps we should ignore the par for the course banalities the bloke has trotted out to the media and look at how he's actually played?......he's not exactly been found wanting has he? Man of the Match in a couple of games for some people on here. Good premier league centre back iyam.
  2. Game of the decade. Get the fuck in shola I fuckin love you........always have done like
  3. They just said on the radio Terry and Anelka start and there is a 15 year old on the bench...
  4. Tiote quite literally didnt put a foot wrong on Saturday...not sure how much you can go on statistics alone, but on the face of it this is very impressive...... http://www.guardian.co.uk/football/2010/se...kboard-analysis
  5. Quite plainly paid off. Very few cities with as much civic pride. But its always the same. Planning commitees are the most corruptable fuckers in public life. Its going to be obscene
  6. They played the clip of this on the radio yesterday.....he starts out as if he's being toungue in cheek and the press folk he's talking to are laughing along...then they seem to realise he might actually be serious when he's banging on about winning the double every season and they soon shut up sharpish I don't think he was being entirely serious....well I fuckin hope he wasn't...
  7. Somebody should ask him: When did the Catholic church excommunicate Adolf Hitler? For how many centuries and how recently did the Catholic church withdraw the "warrant" against all Jews for Deicide? If he really wants to try the old Hitler was an Atheist bullshit it proves he's not the intelligent man his fans claim. The area that the modern day nation of Germany occupies was called the Holy Roman Empire for a millienium up until about 1800....go figure folks...
  8. Tony Blair was on the right tracks but got it wrong....if he'd said "everyone's middle income nowadays" he'd have been more accurate if you ask me. You can have done the university thing, got a graduate traineeship, made a meteroric rise through the ranks of a ftse top 100 comapany, married Jemima, the Roedean educated daughter of the finance director, got the townhouse,got,got the villa in Tuscany,got the Porsche Cayenne and dozens of immigrant staff to look after the two of you and your 2.4 children and your fuckin golden retreiver....but if you were brought up in Wallsend where your old man worked as a light plater in Swan Hunters and your mam as a dinner lady theres still fuck all middle class about you I disagree tbh But there are very few people working class these days. To put it in perspective, when I was a baby my dad used to have to ride his bike from CLS to Bishop Auckland to get to work as he couldn't afford the bus. Seriously. He used to steal coal off the slag heap to keep the house warm when interest rates went up to 15%, and used to hide from the gas man behind the sofa. These days the 'working classes' have the full sky package, broadband, flat screen, 3 takeaways a week, 2 cars on the drive. Times are easier nowadays, no doubt about that. And a lot of traditional "working class" industries have gone forever. But the word "class" is a bit of a red herring for me. I'm capable of and do earn a salary that would definetly put me in the "middle class" bracket....but I get my hands dirty every day for it (sparkie), my old man was a chippy and my mam was a home help for old folk. I'm also part gypsy and part Irish and my grandfather and all his 5 brothers were mole catchers Now if I was from a long line of doctors, accountants, lawyers or high acheivers in general you could say I was middle class. But as you can see thats not really the case. I'm middle income though, same as a lot of people I'd imagine. Maybe not the ones with cleaners or au pairs...they're just lazy fuckers who've forgotten where they're from
  9. opening lines... "this is the second time today I've got up off a warm seat with a peice of paper in my hand....." "I prepared some lines earlier....but you'll be pleased to know I snorted them all in my hotel room...."
  10. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/newsbys...t-carriers.html And I need to keep my job too ....all will become clear on 20th October when the strategic defence reveiw is published. But my graft at the BAE shipyard in Portsmouth is pretty small beer really................ there are lads putting their lives on the line in Afghanistan as we speak who will be out of a job this time next year...like cheers then George, thats the thanks these poor fuckers are going to get because you have to prove a point to us frightful plebs about government spending and not to trust those New Labour types ever again, lest they try to build new hospitals and schools etc etc....and why we're at it why the fuck is there a need for "Help for Heroes" concerts to raise millions for the returning wounded when there is an estimated 40 billion quid "tax gap" between whats in the exchequer and what should be in there, mostly due to tax the tax evasion of the top 5% of earners in the U.K.?

  12. Everton average league attendance 1983/4 Division 1 19.343 Newcastle United average league attendance 1983/4 Divison 2 29,811 Didn't that massively successful huge club Everton win something that season? http://european-football-statistics.co.uk/england.htm
  13. Hughton isnt going to drop Nolan for an away game at Everton in favour of Ben Arfa folks, forget it. And he contributed well at Wolves in that posistion. Regardless of missing a sitter, I thought he played well.
  14. Youre right they do. I think it was always going to be difficult for him to have that austerity and assertiveness with some of the senior players as his initial relationship with the players was as a coach. Its like one of your work colleages has been promoted as your boss. Anyway, hopefully this defeat will give him more courage in dropping the senior players and making braver decisions. Did anyone find out why nolan was shouting at the bench today? Thats rght they do......ask Smith how many times he started in front of Guthrie last season after xmas.....no need to drop Nolan as he was scoring half the teams goals it would've been a bit of a bad move really For fucks sakes this is Newcastle United man...this is what they do, the same as most other football clubs...anyone remember Man Utd 0 Burnley 1 from this time last season?... He couldnt just bring 3 new players in today. After the events of last season and so far this season it would've been as disrespectful to the dropped players as a manager could've been. Its got fuck all to do with lacking guts,bottle or anything like that. Its called respect. And in the dressing room its vital he maintains it. If Smith, Williamson and Nolan had been benched today what would their and their teammates reaction have been?...would they have wanted to play for Hughton in the future if they felt that whatever they did they were always going to play second fiddle to the new lads?...look at what some of the Villa squad playes said about O'Neil after he left.....it certainly wasn't a happy ship, as we witnessed last month. Very few managers would've changed the side that drastically today. Away to Everton I wouldnt expect too many either....Tiote for Smith?....away from home we're going to play Nolan in front of Ben Arfa because he's a lot more defensive by nature. Don't know about Campbell, but he hasn't signed him to sit on the bench I wouldnt have thought so Williamson might give way, which is hard on him as he's been one of our best players so far this season, but this weeks result does make these decisions a lot easier. In the meantime stop fuckin whingeing. If anyone thought this season wasn't going to be full of ups and downs then they've not watched NUFC very much over the years.Wigan,Hull and Portsmouth have come out of the 2nd division and beaten us at home within a season or two, it does happen. Its mid Sepetember and we're mid table. Did anyone expect any different?

    You've missed the point Mr Kunt.....If the US had been doing their job properly theyd have gone into Afghanistan in the 90s when the world and his wife knew they were hosting Al Qaeada who were in turn attacking the World Trade Centre in 93 and US Emabssies in Africa. The threat was real and they ignored it. You getting all gobby about the US shutting the door after the horse has bolted is a bit rich really.

    1. Very good. 2. Right. We're in agreement then that some form of action against al quaeda/Islamic terrorism was a necessity post 9/11. Getting certain Islamic countries that harbour/export terrorism to cooperate via talks I believe would be a very unrealistic proposition for various reasons. For one thing the worldwide sympathy you talk of doesn't exist as China and Russia do not view this issue in the same light as the U.S. and Britain. Secondly the talks didn't work with Middle Eastern players (Iraq) and still don't (Iran). You joke that you wouldn't get a second term but that is a point worth taking up as anyone who adopted these policies wouldn't gain a second term. It's just not a realistic proposal unless we live in an alternate universe. With the Taliban occupying significant territory and harbouring Al Quaeda operatives in Afghanistan I don't see how the NATO mission in Afghanistan could have been realistically avoided. I'll assume you are ignorant of the situation in Afghanistan prior to 2001, because if you have knowledge of it and advocated leaving it in that state then you are guilty not only of moral cowardice but gross stupidity also. Any 'manhunt' of Al Quaeda would have lead there anyway, and with the hopelessly fragile and corrupt government in place and in the midst of a civil war, any diplomacy would have been an exercise in futility; the UF needed military support urgently. I would like to hear your arguments that non-intervention in Afghanistan would be a good strategy for the region/world. Given your statement 1. quoted there, your opposition to intervention in Afghanistan seems illogical at best. So we were going in before the planes hit the towers were we? Tell me why we didnt invade Saudi Arabia again?

    The union of the crowns was in 1603....Scotland and England had the same king during the civil war. The civil war was a nationwide punch up to establish an evil old bigot as ruler of Great Britain, as opposed to a bunch of inbred Scottish aristocrats. It was between two factions fighting for control, not two different nations. Canadians...I wouldnt say you're all thick but one half of the country speaks French and the other half fuckin let them There were conflicts between England and Scotland after the union between the two kingdoms though. Both before and after the English Civil War, which you refer to. The clue's in the name there btw The conflicts were in a similar vein to the civil war though.....the 1715 and 1745 rebellions (which I presume you are referring to) had a hugely (overwheimingly Highland) Scottish flavour to them, that is undeniable. But they were in essence just more skirmismishes about who ruled Great Britain; the Hanovarians or the Stewart dynasty. At the last ever pitched battle in the British Isles at Culloden in 1745 there were more "Scottish" soldiers (recruited from the heavily Anglicised lowlands) in Cumberland's army than there were fighting for the Jacobite rebels. And if Cromwell fought the "English" civil war why did he spend large parts of it in Ireland helping to open the gaping wounds that are still bleeding almost 500 years later? I can see what you're getting at but for me the wars of the 16-1700s were religion-inspired power grabbing by men who wanted control of all of what is now the U.K. and Ireland.

  20. Shola must've been fuckin close to an England cap around 2002/3......banging them in for the under 21s, at Leverkusen, Anfield etc...at the time Sven was regularly picking no more than 3 strikers in the squad...Owen,Heskey and Darius fuckin Vassel The most frustrating player I've ever seen, even before his hip problems...with his size and athelticism he couldve been a sort of poor mans Drogba but he's often looked as if he'd rather be anywhere on earth than on a football pitch.....fuck knows why, is it just the same side of the "Help I've been burgled!....no hang on, my flats just a fuckin shititp!" coin?

    Well in that case I suggest that the history of your mother country isnt that high on the curriculum in Canada then.....the land of the Scots has never been inavded and conquered by any other nation.....it's been colonised to a small extent by the two greatest Empires the world has seen but conquered by no fucker. Bit like Thailand

    Yanks It's International Burn the Koran day actually. Love the way the American's like to get us all involved in their retarded activities and sports. Re: Canada. If we compare the US to England, then that makes Canada Scotland. Which is pretty accurate imo. ummmm...no, A. canada has never been conquered by the US and is a sovereign state of its own B. while we share geography, cultural differences are far greater than similarities "conquered" in what way Mr Mooseshagger?
