  1. All a great idea, and love the slogans everyone of them, but how many will actually buy a teeshirt?

     

    To make an impact, especially amongst 40-50,000 fans there has to be a majority of fans wearing them.

     

    Will the majority of fans buy and wear one, seriously ask yourself that question.

     

    You are dealing with a huge cross-section of people from all walks of life, the young and the old, the not so well off to the better off, and the list goes on.

     

    IMO you will be lucky to sell 5000 and even if you do that number will just not make a difference.

     

    The black and white cards that we held up at the start of a season, the shearer masks for his testimonial made an impact,

     

    I find it hard to think of something that really could make an impact, maybe something like a plain red card and a slogan to be raised just before the start of the Everton game. My personal view is boycott because that would be a resounding message but that has been ruled out.

  2. Fair enough cos we have nothing better, but we should be able to mothball him and bring him out to play when we are desperate.

     

    But as things are we have to rely on Nicky Butt to play every week.

     

    Since he came back from his loan spell he has been great but just lately he is not putting too many good passes together and is very very slow.

  3. The rumours about Wise getting the boot seem to be getting some credence.

     

    Maybe the Bruce/Shearer stuff is just a way of sounding out the fans' thoughts?

     

    If Kinnear does get the push (here's hoping) we are in no position to expect any top class manager to come here, so Bruce would surely be 'in the frame' (sorry for that expression).

     

    Believe it only when it happens, yet more bullshit, wonder who the PR person is this time?

  4. We were awful today and really 2nd best all over the park, with a few exception,

     

    Jonas was running all over the park and had a great game, but I wish he had the confidence to have a shot at goal. Enrique had a very good game along with Bassong and Taylor was ok and much better coming forward.

     

    After that I struggle with, Ameobi, apart from the pen he was shit, and IMO never be any good, Butt is feeling the pace and gets worse each week, Duff was also crap and I fail to understand why he is on the teamsheet.

     

    Finally the manager, Kinnear is just out of his depth, IMO clueless, and poor role model for some of our "special needs" players.

    This is my attempt, a tad optomistic.

  6. "I don't think there's a problem there really because I've got a three-and-a-half year contract on the table that I myself haven't signed.

     

    "I could have signed it three weeks ago but I'm prepared to leave the situation as it is until the end of the season and take stock then.

     

    started as 2 years then 2.5 now it's just gone up, if you tell lies Joe you really need to remember what you said in the first place.

  7. Didn't the players have a nip of scotch under Cloughie if things were bad at half time?

    I think Big Ron was an advocate of a nip of brandy or whisky before a big match. You might be right though about Cloughie. He had one regardless.

     

    ...or two.. :rolleyes::crying:

     

    The game has gone to shit.

     

    And Big John MacNamee and co would have the odd ciggy, even when sitting on the bench, never mind waiting till half time.

  8. Ashley and Wise at City, the only reason they are making an appearance is to finalise the Given deal. Given won't play tonight for fear he is injured and stops the transfer going ahead.

     

    Really pissed off that we are selling Given, back to the bad old days of selling our best players, hope we get decent dosh for him, got to be £12m +.

     

    Can't see that mesel, like. Any deals wouldn't have to have Fatash and the dwarf at the game tonight?

     

    However, memories of Beardsley, Waddle, Gazza and Cole are refreshed. Memories of walking past the fans boycotting the games in the eighties and thinking, 'they must be mad' are refreshed, as we approach the same scenario today (I'm now contemplating a boycott of all the games myself, not that my absence will be of much significance - except to my heart B) ).

     

    Maybe, maybe not, but after the long absence, why all of a sudden decide to go to this game. Last time Fatash was at a game was when KK was here.

  9. I feel sick.

     

    Just sick to the pit of my stomach.

     

    At the club behaving like it used to do for years, which is the reason he is going.

     

    I'm gutted man.

     

    Excuse my ignorance of NUFC in the 80s, and correct me if i'm wrong - but that money was never re-invested properly into the team was it?

     

    We'll be getting £20m ish from Milner and Given and seeing absolutely fuck all from it. Fuming.

     

    no, it wasn't. They always gave the excuse as "strengthening other positions" [just like now] but in reality all it did was buy a couple of players who weren't good enough with some of it and the rest disappearing down a black hole.

     

    Back to the dark old days, time I remember so well. Why not bring back Gordon Lee, he's been out of the game since 1991, good match.

  10. Ashley and Wise at City, the only reason they are making an appearance is to finalise the Given deal. Given won't play tonight for fear he is injured and stops the transfer going ahead.

     

    Really pissed off that we are selling Given, back to the bad old days of selling our best players, hope we get decent dosh for him, got to be £12m +.

  11. Sad to say, but I think we'll get nowt from either game. Despite the injuries to the players they will not be wound up enough and TBH I don't think they give a toss or even how important it is for fans and the need to stuff the Makems!
