  1. From an Agent of one of the Spurs first team players. All alleged. Levy and Jose have been at breaking point since January. Owner telling manager who to play. Wants Dele and Bergwein playing to be in shop window. Want Bale playing not sat in bench at £200K a week. Bombshell was owner telling manager to play strongest team against Southampton as still chance if making top 4 and didn't care about winning Cup. Manager wanted best team for final. Final nail was manager telling owner he had a good business, but priority in wrong place and would win nothing and to stop interferin
  2. As a fan of any of those Clubs involved, it would show real power if they refused to attend games or buy season tickets until those owners have left. If SL had gone down this route if in that position, that's what I'd do. He wouldn't though. For all the flack they get, SL and JL have decent intentions when compared to other owners. On a side note...I think we as fans in our keyboard warrior state have driven JL out and will eventually with SL. For all their 'faults'...no one is perfect...I think as a fan base we are fortunate to have them. Looking at the bigger pictu
  3. Well City are doing it now also with kids shirts. Good initiative. Doesn't say what they are doing with the Manure shirts though.
  4. I don't think they've thought this through properly. I can see the face of some young African kid being given an XXL size shirt and thinking ' have I got to play in this or live in it?'
  5. This has all the makings of a 'SoD' moment happening again. NP like SoD doesn't suffer fools...
  6. That's all well and good...but what we all want to know is did you polish in between games and if so...how fast?
  7. I'm kinda glad I'm older all that was after my time. Fair play though...if it brings back happy memories why not
  8. No...this could develop into a great thread...it's how conversations develop...like a river meandering I'm showing my age as I haven't a clue what WWF figures are or N64 love it though. What I'm gutted about the most...is I had that Panini sticker that sold for half a million...and threw it away when I had a clear out years ago. If only I'd known
  9. If you had it as a kid up until the very early 80s, you'd get it. Nearly every kid owned it. It was the biggest selling game for many years. The inventor was a great businessman, because it wasn't just a game...the idea to collect hundreds of different teams and stadium accessories was a master stroke. That is why it's still so popular now. It's pure nostalgia and escapism. Men of a certain age have a disposable income and now recreate memories collecting all the teams, building stadiums or meeting with other collectors and playing along with a few Beers, BBQ and plenty of footy
  10. So if this was to materialise, would Sky reduce money paid to Prem and go searching for contract to television rights for Super League? Would the likes of Gary Neville pundit on such games? Interesting that Super League are taking this to court to get it going as they have to, due to £4 billion grant given by JP Morgan. On behalf of shareholders so grant can be decided amongst them.
  11. Agreed...as our own Mr Bakinson promoted today...quote...( Why should anyone be surprised, football is a business ) refering to the super League... For the present player and owners...it's a business only. Nothing more nothing less. For fans and players of a certain age like us it means a little more. As for Bakinson...re NP saying he's complex...I'll put it in simpler terms. He's a bit of a knob.
  12. I probably didn't put across my point very well mate. If a club sign up to the SL and Uefa stop a player from plying his trade under Uefa competitions...which a contract will adhere to, then surely a player will have every right to terminate contract or renegotiate as it goes against what he signed up for.
  13. Apologies if this has been mentioned before, but not had time to read everything. Has it occured to anyone that players of these teams could have a way out of their contracts? They signed up to play in competitions already in place. Surely a super League would contravene the clauses in their contracts? Any contract would have to be re nogotiated or paid up.
  14. Uefa have already agreed to a new format of Champions League today. It will increase to 36 teams and allow big teams to join if they fail to qualify. Their statement was no better than the super League. It highlighted teams that hadn't qualified but were 'big' so would be included, and that it would enable greater revenue. So no better than super League. I'm all for football imploding I'd love fans to not buy season tickets and sky. Go and do something else for a year. It won't kill us I blame fans as much as the greedy clubs. Many are just lemmings..
