    Geordie

    The porrigde mooth was wrong, and was probably trying to make some sort of fucked up nationalistic point. Try these for interesting stuff about the origins of how we speak today and local (mainly Nothumbrian) history, all by Alistair Moffat... http://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_ss_0_12?u...ix=alistair+mof

    Geordie

    Yeah, and many of them are the root of words used in modern English, so we're using the same words, but just pronouncing them differently, whcih means it's essentially the same language but a different dialect.

    Geordie

    The thing is, a lot of those words are just the way we pronounce words that are in use in everyday English spoken all over the world....."wor" is just another way of saying "our" and comes from the same root word, which technically makes the way we speak a dialect rather than an individual, stand alone language, regardless of how far back some of the pronounciations go. We did indeed all speak Brythonic (early Welsh) all over the British Isles until waves of Saxon and Anglian immigration, raids form Pictish and Scottish (ie Irish) pirates and of course the Roman invasion pushed most of the speakers of the language westwards into the mountains of what is now Wales, where the language continues to thrive, which in itself is a minor miracle, having been under huge threat for two thousand years, and from the two greatest empires the world has ever seen. Cornish, Breton,Scots,Irish,Manx,Galloway and Deeside Gaelic are all either extinct or dying, but Welsh survives, which I quite like Near where my old man was brought up in the Cheviots there's a place called Pennymuir: http://www.streetmap.co.uk/map.srf?x=37550...searchp=ids.srf its a very historic place: http://www.discovertheborders.co.uk/places/136.html not least for the actual name itself, which has survived in its original brythonic form, unchanged since someone first named it two millenia ago: penn= "at the head" y= "of" muir= "the walls".....(of the roman camp) for further confirmation look at the map of Wales where you find it unchanged as wel in Penn y ghent etc.... Makes you think doesn't it Stevie?....we're all fuckin taffs!

    Geordie

    "Geordie" is a dialect, which makes use of lots of slang words, many of them Anglian in origin. "Scots", better known as either "lallans" or "lowlands scots" is allegedly a language (according to the porrigde mooths), but it is a in reality just a dialect, with, in the south east of Scotland, many similarities to "Geordie". The western version, as spoken by Robbie Burns, is quite different in some ways, being influenced more by the Gaelic spoken in Galloway until (comparatively) fairly recently.
  5. Lucky more like Therefore by implication, the team has been lucky to get the results. Which is patently bollocks. Hardly, the guy's said we're going to walk the league with the squad we have, the squad is obviously too thin without luck having a hand in not getting injuries - it's got bugger all to do with how the first team has performed. Therefore the guy's been lucky that the first team haven't really had injuries, if they had it's doubtful we'd have got the same results during this start to the season and it's even more doubtful that they'd continue any further in to the season. It's easy to say that with our 'first team' we'd win the league, but with our 'squad' it's a different matter altogether. ... which isn't bollocks. Thats easy for you to say.....wtf are you going on about? whats " got bugger all to do with how the first team has performed"? Do you mean what the lad has actually said would happen?....he said we'd piss it, we have so far and thats wihout Shola in the last game, Guthrie for a couple of games etc....I do happen to agree the squad is probably too thin to sustain it, but no one else has said from the outset it would be this comparatively easy in this divison with the players we have at the club, so some credit is due surely? But if you mean the results we've had are nothing to do with how we've played (which is how I'm reading what you've posted) then maybe you need a lie down mate

  7. True enough, I think it's vital if we have any chance of winning it that Rooney, Rio and Gerrard are fit, if any one of them is missing I think we'd give a good account but definitely fall short. Reading Ant's comments, and yours it's always struck me, despite Britain's murderous past in Ireland, a large portion of the Irish people don't actually hate England when it comes to football, certainly no where near as much as the Scottish, maybe it's better education I don't know. Parky, Agbonlahor is one of the worst capped players in England's history, we have no alternative to Heskey if we want a strong cunt to win balls in the air, I think Carlton Cole's recent performances justify a squad position. Aggy can play on the right or in the center mind. I like the idea of bringing him on when Lennon is knackered. Just don't see CC as international class. I was thinking on the bog this morning that if we had a Drogba upront we'd be unstoppable. Thats the thing about big Emile...Drogba is the player Heskey could and should have been......but in the system Capello is playing Heskey does his job and creates space for Rooney to play in. It works, and he's found the key to playing Gerrard and Lampard plaing together i.e. Gareth Barry. And the players are shit scared of being dropped, no more "caps for the boys", unless you're Beckham. This is a very good England team with the right man leading them. If they win the World Cup it will be a great team. But they're going to need a bit of luck for that I like how he uses beckham though, put in some quality after one of the quicker lads lennon/walcott etc has worn down the fullback Yeah one ball Becks played when he came on was brilliant...sort of scooped it up and bent it round for Rooney...and I think he's definetly on the plane for SA...I don't think he'd be anywhere near the squad if he wasn't. I think Wes Brown should go as well, and could well start at right back....their goal last night came because Johnson allowed the cross to come in too easily. And he's a better player in the middle than Upson for me.

    82cm Rat

    trying to pull myself up on to a wall at a farm once and one that looked as if it could have been saddled and made to carry young children around ran across my fingers...I fuckin crapped myself and fell the 6 feet or so to the deck, badly spraining my ankle....fuckin hideous creatures
  10. Its strange you say that, at 43 I am the youngest of 7 so there was all sorts of music being played and lying around the house from my older brothers and sisters but I cant really remember any Beatles stuff. You're not one of them then. Imo, to appreciate a musical revolution you have to have not heard any music that came after it or is a derivative style before listening to it. The only way to fulfil that criteria is either to have spent your life listening to music pre-1962 and then at the age of 17/18 listen to the Beatles for the first time. Impossible if you have a radio or TV. When my dad (a professional musician) talks about listening to The Beatles for the first time, he talks about the first moment he heard it and the difference to anything he had heard before. His love for them comes from this moment, one which you can not re-create for later generations. I was old enough to see punk supposedly revolutionalise music but it was all exaggerated despite the enthusiasm of the fans - punk was supposed to kill disco/dance music but the 70s ended ruled by garbage like the Bee Gees and Michael Jackson - just like now the charts are still dominated by populist shite. Music to me is always divided between stuff that "proper" music fans - people who take it seriously - like and stuff bought by and listened to by more casual listeners who are often influenced just by the notion of popularity. I've always considered The Beatles to be on the latter side of the divide. Not really....John Savage's critique of punk rock "Englands Dreaming" basically says punk rock came out in a significant way as a reaction to the overblown prog rock/heavy metal excesses of the 1970s....why have three artics full of gear for ELP's mid 70s stage show or Led Zep travelling in seperate private jets when all you need is 3 chords an amp and some enthusiasm i.e. the much quoted "do it yourself" ethos of early punk....which is ironically where the Beatles pretty much started in the clubs of Hamburg, but after Shea Stadium they decided they didnt really want to go to where the likes of Led Zep ended up and they became a studio band as mentioned above. This suited all except George Harrison, who was later quoted bemoaning the chance to compare his skills against the likes of Jeff Beck or Tom Petty, and quite possibly paved the way for the frankly awful Travelling Wilburys
  11. Weeelll....it could be argued that The Kinks "invented" heavy metal with their track "Girl I want to be with you (all of the time)"......the use of choppy guitar chords which are left hanging in the air...this hadn't really been done before, and that particular sound went on to influence the up and coming heavy blues gutarists of the West Midlands around that time (Tommy Iommi of Black Sabbath,Ritchie Blackmore of Deep Purple etc) and also ex public schoolboy Jimmy Page (Led Zeppelin) who collectively it could be said laid down the basic style for every heavy metal cock/poodle rocker thats ever donned a pair of spandex leggings
  12. You mean he doesn't actually show that much support for the team?.....who'd have thought it?
  13. I'm going to the match, but I'm only going for a pint with you if you can guarantee Stevie's attendance
  14. possibly...Costa Rica at the moment....Honduras top, but its very tight. The top 4 teams qualify for the FIFA World Cup™. The 5th placed team enters a home-and-away playoff with the 4th placed team from North,Central America & Caribbean. http://www.fifa.com/worldcup/preliminaries...ings/index.html Honduras 7 4 1 2 14 7 13 USA 7 4 1 2 13 9 13 Mexico 7 4 0 3 11 9 12 Costa Rica 7 4 0 3 9 12 12 El Salvador 7 1 2 4 7 10 5 Trinidad and Tobago 7 1 2 4 8 15 5 http://www.fifa.com/worldcup/preliminaries...ings/index.html
  15. on the bench Argentina: Andujar; Zanetti, Dominguez, Otamendi, Heinze; Maxi, Mascherano, Veron, Datolo; Messi, Tevez. Subs: Carrizo, Papa, Gago, Milito, Schiavi, Coloccini, Aguero. Brazil: Julio Cesar; Maicon, Lucio, Luisao, Andre Santos; Silva, Felipe Melo; Elano, Kaka; Robinho, Luis Fabiano. Subs: Victor, Dani Alves, Miranda, Lucas, Ramires, Julio Baptista, Adriano. Referee: Julian Oscar Ruiz Acosta (Colombia) Maxi,Veron,Heinze...no wonder the argies are struggling....Messi might miss out on a world cup finals....bit of the George Best scenario about this campaign for him...let down by poor team mates.....and a very poor choice of manager...
  16. 2 scoring passes/assists v Palace, the first for Nolan was worthy of any league in the world (obviously a good run by Nolan too) suggests he'll be effective at this level. And whats the point of moving when Maradonna has said he's not bothered what league him and Colo are playing in?....not forgetting his premier league wages etc..
  17. Exactly. NUFC.com did a piece the other week showing all the quotes from players who went on to leave. They were along the lines of: "NO WAY AM I EVER LEAVING NEWCASTLE, MAN. THIS IS MY HOME. NO WAY, MAAAN, NO WAY." And, it's only my opinion, but I think Enrique is woeful. He was shocking in the Premier League and can barely cope at this level, though I will admit that he has had one or two flashes of competence this season. He just can't pass a ball or pick up a man. Sorry like but Enrique has been very good so far this season and rarely does anyone get past him - as well as the excellent cover he provides for his centre backs (like last night - were you there?) Apart from Leicester's right winger about 3 times in the first 10 mins last night....so much so that fuckin Geremi of all players had to be moved on to that flank to help Enrique out....he's done ok but is exposed by anyone with the barest hint of pace...has been from the moment he stepped foot in the club. He's not likely to be up agaisnt pace like that every week so he'll probably do ok. He's still the only left back at the club
  18. I've got a t shirt with it on...got it from here: http://www.goalhanger.com/ as you can see, it appears apple's lawyers have been in touch
  19. He was 4th official at the semi final on the Saturday before ours at Cardiff in 2005............I think my mates daughter tore any hair he had out that night
  20. Yeah, still wouldn't take him back though. I would. In this division he's lethal. When did he sign permanently for Cardiff?...was it around the time Shearer handed Ashley his blueprint for this season?....you can be sure Chopra was on his list I reckon... Looking forward to going to Wales in a few weeks...one of the games of the season for me
  21. I thought he left Celtic because despite having in many ways a better record than the likes of Martin O'Neil, he was never truly accepted by the support as being "one of them", and with Rangers winning the title last season it provided a convenient point at which to go. He strikes me as a realist, so I doubt he thought he was going to get a job at one of Europe's top sides, but who knows?.....deluded?
  22. Gordon Strachan is ideal for NUFC in our current situation, he's got recent good experiance and if backed properly and given time he could be a success, but thats not going to happen, regardless of who is running the club after next week. So Hughton it is then.......... him being the least worst option
  23. Well there was Kenny Wharton... This is a whole different ballgame.....Ashley didnt look at the books, crapped himself when he realised the state shep had left us in and has been basically floundering ever since. He's only interested in getting his money back, and if it means selling the tea lady and the ball boys then so be it. He doesnt want to plan for the future, he wants his cash and will leave us up a certain creek without a certain rowing implement when he finally gets enough to cover his costs/losses. Cunt
