  1. re arranged for 23rd Feb isnt it? They had more of a mob in the Elm Park days but watch that "Firkin" bar next to the station....seen the odd off in there
  2. Did Dennis Wise sign all of them? They're all too old for the U 18s anyway. If they don't step up to the plate in the next 12 months they'll be released. Spear isn't too old for the under 18's, he's only a first year scholar iirc. Vuckic is still only 17 as well so can play at that level but is currently injured. Spear didn't play last night but may well be injured or his cat might of died or something... Does anyone know what the word is on the U18s?...do they stand a good chance of winning it? I think we have a better chance than in resent years due to who is left in it. Liverpool, Villa and Chelsea would be the three strongest teams left in it imo but if Liverpool beat Watford they play Chelsea in the next round. We play the winner of Hull V Palace in the next round and the game will be at St. James' Park the week after next so if you can get yourself along. I'd love to mate but I live on the south coast now. Due to one thing and another tomorrow night is going to cost me 150 quid for a flight up north Do you watch the young uns regular like?

  4. Too right....here's their Metro Centre....cost me a fuckin fortune this place

  6. http://www.nufc.co.uk/articles/20100203/cl...2240137_1954580 http://nufc.com/2009-10html/reserve_apps_prem.html The only names I recognise are Alnwick (Bens brother?) Inman and Tavernier, who have all played in the reserves. This is an under 18 team which I think means they are in the first year of their first professional contract. So this is last years academy players.Which means that Dennis Wiae may have recruited some of them Good result,but we'll see how things go...who do they have in the next round?
  7. Arsenal a few years back? It pissed down, Titus made his usaul fuckin howler live in front of the nation and Bernard scored a cracker in a pretty good performance which we lost 3-2.

  9. Cannibals.....all of them...... http://www.irishtimes.com/newspaper/breaki.../breaking46.htm http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/worldnews/...needed-eat.html http://news.softpedia.com/news/Two-Russian...er-109566.shtml http://eeuropeanhistory.suite101.com/artic...he_soviet_union
  10. Quite possibly all true, but I wasn't aware that Afghanistan was part of either the Soviet Union or in it's sphere of influence at any time between the end of WW2 and 1979 when the tanks rolled into Kabul. And that is a gig thats still being played out today as we speak with hundreds of UK service men and women no longer with us because of it. Geroge Bush financed,trained and armed Bin Laden in the 80s and we're paying the price for that particular foreign policy fuck up to this day. A pox on the USA and Soviet Union
  11. Yeah but he knew she had before he got with her....same as that Danielle Lloyd....Spurs used to use her for wet whether training to keep them "sharp in the box" from what I hear....she's with Jamie O'Hara now
  12. Does anyone really want that though? As a football fan it should be all about the football, winning things, pride in your club, not merely ensuring the balance sheet works ahead of the team sheet. Manageable debt with a successful team is the only way to get on in this game. No club will ever amount to anything if it doesnt spend money. If we dont go up this season then I honestly believe this football club is destined to sink into obscurity and god knows what after that. Without the big money of the Premiership then we'll not have anything next season. We've had parachute payments and the sale of players this year while still retaining Premiership level attendances. Next Championship season would be a whole different ball game. No I agree with you, but our actions in the transfer window haven't really made promotion almost guaranteed as it could've done if we'd have recruited for August 2010 and not May 2010 only. But this is the road he's taking us down and for me theres little anyone, including NUST, can do about it. Can they apply enough pressure on him to sell up if he thinks that once we're fully coming out of the recession he may get more money for the club than NUST can ever hope to raise, excellent though their intentions and actions have been so far.
  13. The reason you've softened is that there are some signs of green shoots and whatever we think of MA he's one shrewd fuck, he's certainly turned our finances around and next year he'll go into profit. Job done. His few redeeming features for me have only come to light when you compare our situation to that of Liverpool, Man Utd and Pompey....he bought us with his own cash, didnt borrow a penny and he, for good or bad, attends games regularly and is a recognisable public face of the club week in, week out. I think some of us may be eating a huge slice of irony pie if he's still owner in 2 years time. Pity we'll be, at best, a solvent yo yo club with no real direction but looking at Pompey maybe we're better with the devil we know. For the events of last season though he's still a fuckin useless cunt
  14. Williamson looked solid-ish but slow even in this divison. He'll never be a premier league defender as long as he's got a hole in his arse
  15. I blame sky. It's just sabout to produce it's 2nd generation of fans who think they're all entitled to a completely arbitary opinion and are all entitled to voice it at the match , or to David Craig. Or their mates who treat going to the match the same as watching a match on a 37 inch plasma, something to be observed and not actively particpated in. The rest of us old fuckers have been anaesthetised into a slumber as well by anyone of a combination of events, chief of which a far as I can see is the saturation coverage of football by Murdoch in his attempt to have more influence on more households in the world than any other person who's ever lived, the fuckin cunt.
  16. Can I vote "despite the long term deals handed to 4 players this transfer window looks no further into the future than May 2010"?
  17. Don't go to Austrailia...its full of twats from here constantly slagging this country off.Before I went I didn't realise that the worlds most fuckin annoying twats are those whose chief obsession in life is how sunny the weather is. And theres about 3 interesting things to see in the entire country. If you want to see an interesting country buy an Amtrak pass here and fly to the USA and bum around there for a few months. Best thing I've ever done, fuckin brilliant time.
  18. How ironic I'm Scottish? Deflected as exepected. You know fine well what's ironic about your post. Well I've got no disease, what you on about now Craig? You get the benefit of deflecting things more than Frank Lampard you anyway. keep it going man.... Well am I the one who wears the opposition shirts of teams playing Scotland. Normally I want them to win. Murray is a disgrace. The thing is they do it just to get a reaction like this, fuck knows why you let it bother you. Murray made the greatest ever player play some of his best tennis..fair play to him. He'll never be forgiven by some for an of the cuff remark he made as an 18 year old......do you stand by everything you used to say at that age?
  19. He's gone to the highest bidder, which appears to be Wigan. Given Palace's financial state, the club who offered them the most money were always likely to get him Mike Ashley agreed 3 long term contracts last week.....he's probably lying down in a darkened room in the Priory as we speak

  22. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Football-Against-E...r/dp/0752848771 Yeah the superclassico is very much social division fought out on grass as opposed to ethnic hatred
  23. Caransa?...named after this gadgie no doubt, Maup Caransa, a big player behind the Ajax sides of the 60s & 70s: http://translate.google.co.uk/translate?hl...ADBR_en___GB328 so can I...when we played Herenveen one of our lot thought it might be a good idea to try and get in there to be fair he'd been drinking Warsteiner for about 8 hours....
  24. Manchester derby the biggest? For me, and I take Stevie's points completley about Boca v River Plate (these things are entirely subjective), this is the daddy: This is where a decade of civil war in the Balkans started, Dinamo Zagreb v Red Star Belgrade...obviously a lot more to it than football; WW 1 starting in nearby Bosnia and all the history of the peoples of the Ottoman Empire being at each others throats.....Serbia's traditional support of Russia and Marshal Tito, leader of Yugoslavia from WW 2 till his death in the late 80s....the subsequent collapse of communist power in Eastern Europe in general and the old emeneties and hatreds re surfacing....which all led to this game in 1991. The Red Star Ultras basically became the warlord Arkan's paramilitary militia " The Tigers", similarlary the Dianmo's "BBB's" (Bad Blue Boys) went off to join the Croatian army. This game kicked it all off. Couldnt find any footage of the Dinamo players having it with the Belgrade riot police, but theres a legendary shot of one of them doing a flying kick into a fully armoured goon and flattening the fucker..Bosko Balaban? Don't know if you'd call this a "derby" (as I say very subjective) as such but there was a terrific rivalry between these clubs during the years of the Yugoslavian league and at it's culmination it kicked off a decade long civil war. Thats wat I call a derby (If anyones interested, Simon Kuper's "Football Against The Enemy" gives a very good account of what happened)
  25. I think Ashley likes someone who owes him a favour, or is grateful for the job...see also JFK. Makes them easier to manipulate, or easier to "persuade" to see things his way, accept budgets etc. And there is this talk of a player's "comittee" (Smith,Nolan...anyone else?) Caulkin and Bird have both alluded to this, and Hughton is quoted as saying he likes to do the job with a "light touch" in the changing room. All of which suggests to me we've got a yes man who is largely cowed by the players he's supposed to be in charge of. As someone has said we're top in spite of not because of him. So how much better could we be if we had someone else in charge?...Shearer?.....Mark Hughes?....
