Re: WEEKEND FOOTBALL - 19/21 SEPTEMBER 2020

And having it retaken was a bit harsh as well. Double dose of medicine and zero sympathy from me. Man U fans reaction is hilarious <laugh> How many soft pens did they get last season? I doubt i've got enough fingers and toes to keep track of them. They are so entitled it is annoying. One season a d...

Re: Match Thread - League Cup, Blackburn (H)

So 4th round away to Newport or Watford in the unlikely event we get past the mighty Morecombe in the next round.

Re: The Message of Hate Thread

Almost. <laugh> It's a well paid part-time job for most of them which is why it is a popular thing to stand. Earn enough to make a decent living but little enough work you can do it part time, which is what most of them do. 90 odd percent of them are completely unqualified for the job as well (whic...

Sheffield United could be in trouble this year, their only tactic seems to be 'cross it'.
I was thinking the same. I know 2nd season syndrome is a bit of a cliche, but I think it might apply in their case this season.

Re: The Message of Hate Thread

Referendums, I swear the population at large just does not think things though well enough to vote sensibly. Guernsey general election coming up on 7th October. A referendum has changed the voting rules. We used to elect 38 politicians from a number of districts, but the referendum returned a change...

Great win and great performance, can't think of anybody that didn't play well. Special praise for Carroll, Hendrick and Wilson.

Re: The Callum Wilson Thread

Yeah i'm pretty happy with this signing, certainly an improvement on what we've got, so long as he stays fit, which as biggeordiedave says is a potential concern. But fingers crossed and all that. Also happy with Fraser, Lewis and Holding, so if those come off as well will be an unexpectedly good wi...

Re: NUFC Takeover Petition

Haven't read the petition (got better things to do with my time), but if the complaint is that the EPL didn't just dismiss the takeover out of hand then yes I will sign. Otherwise not a chance in hell.

Re: Toon Takeover Thread - PIF Pull Out

People need to think twice before celebrating this, if the stuff coming out is true, the delay was constructed to keep power balance, not an ounce of blame has been put towards Piracy claims, they are even on record saying it was never put forward as an issue but the consortium tried to help solve ...

Re: Toon Takeover Thread

Even ignoring for a moment the issues relating to the tv broadcasting or human rights violations, there are purely footballing reasons why the FA should block this deal. The Saudi regime bans women from participating in football, either as players or as supporters. A position which is in direct oppo...
