not that interesting but im passing time whilst the wife gets ready. Sounds like a good idea, adding a bit of diversity to the SPL but then only 2 Old Firm derbies (the only games really worth watching for a neutral). That said, maybe it would be even more intense because theres only 2 games. What d'y'all think?

Was talking about this with my father-in-law last night strangely enough.

 

Old firm games bore me rigid.....I'm all for a bigger league (like it used to be up to 1975, amazed it was that long ago....God I'm old :( ).

I'd be well pissed off if I was a Blackburn fan...much better ways of spending £20m than on a thirty year old in steady decline.

Also said that they were looking at trying to get Duff back too :huh:

 

Another great advertisement for getting taken over by people who have no interest in football!!

Edin Dzeko....City's £27m new signing...

 

"I was always attracted most to joining City. I have been linked with the club for a long time, going back to last summer...I am pleased to be at such a good club with such big ambition. They were my first choice and only choice.

 

Everybody speaks about City having lots of money but it is not about that. It is about ambition and I have spoken to coach Mancini and he told me 'this is the best club for you'.

 

:rofl:

 

Decent scoring record for Wolfsburg.....but the world's gone mad.

...QPR manager Neil Warnock after his side's exit at Blackburn. An absolutely livid Warnock claimed Rovers' El-Hadji Diouf taunted striker Jamie Mackie as the player lay on the ground with a broken leg: "He is calling him all sorts on the pitch. There was no need to put the finger up and call him a disgrace and even the Blackburn people were embarrassed. I can't abide people like that...I think he is the lowest of the low and I can't see him being at Blackburn much longer because I can't see Steve Kean putting up with someone like that in the dressing room."

 

Diouf really is probably the most unpleasant player in the league.

i dont think ive ever seriously wished harm on anyone, but that sack of shite is a disgrace. I hope the FA ban him indefinitely, but we all know they dont have the balls for that....

"The understanding from sources close to him is he's not finished with football and he still believes he has the desire and hunger it takes to manage at the top level," added Roan.

"I wouldn't be surprised if West Ham offered him some kind of short-term contract, perhaps a six-month contract, highly incentivised, trying to ensure that they do survive."

 

 

Kinda starting at the wrong end of the table then!

personally i think he is that good..he's just too much of a nobhead to realise his potential rather than talk himself up all the time..

 

 

as for bent he is probably heskey's replacement rather than a new partner if you ask me..and that gyan and welbeck seem to be keepin him out the side i think

Was thinking about taking Josh to the NBA game at the O2 arena (New York Nets v Toronto Raptors) but the cheap seats (£35) are already sold out....best price available is £88 :( . Plus £17.50 parking. And the wife wanted to come.

 

Looks like the Plymouth Raiders then :unsure: .

I love Question Time.

 

Just thought I'd put that out there.

Me also...was on it once (audience, not panel :lol: ). Didn't get to contribute but the guy next to me asked a question so I was on screen quite a lot B) .

 

Got a piss-boring panel though (Michael Winner, Francis Maude, Susan Kramer, Peter Hain and Marie O'Riordan [editor of Marie Claire]).

Torres wants out?

 

"...(Torres) wanted assurances over the future of the club when Liverpool were bought out by the new owners. Torres's camp believes that promises have been broken. Liverpool are not the club that Torres joined and the striker is pessimistic over the future and his patience has worn thin with the absence of investment or activity since the takeover."

Crawley must be just a little happy :) .

 

Be surprised if there are many (any) teams left from outside the premier after that sadly.

 

dunno Mike, Arsenal were lucky against Huddersfield as were City against Notts County. Utd stuttered against lower league teams, so its not completely all over.

Liverpool's new striker sounds quite a character :mellow: .

 

"The Uruguayan has just finished serving a seven-match ban for biting PSV Eindhoven's Otman Bakkal on the shoulder in a league match in November."

We can't even afford to make loan signings, nevermind a stadium!

 

true, but if we could secure the planning permission that should surely make us a more attractive proposition?
