  1. Yep, that did enter my mind when writing it. If that's the case, fair play for putting his family first, but would he be happy deep down. Know I wouldn't
  2. Have a lot of sympathy for Bale and the ways he's been treated by the club and its fans, but there comes a time when you just need to call it quits. Sitting out a contract will do nothing for his mental health, either in the next three years of when he's 75 contemplating his career, which he'll regret I can guarantee you. Nor would playing in the footballing backwater that is China for a mill a week. Anyone that puts money ahead of progressing their art through hard work and application needs to have a look at themselves. This guy already has all the money he could dream of, what he needs to do now is just go to a preferred club that would be most beneficial to further his art and accept 100-200k a week (if that's through RM paying parts of his wage, then so be it). Then he can dish out some retribution by dumping RM out of the CL if he gets the chance.
  3. Sure SU have bigger signings lined up considering what went into the coffers for winning promotion. If they haven't, Id be very worried. Freeman will turn out to be a bit part player if you ask me.
  4. @NickJ Mate, what a great tribute to your late father. Felt compelled to read even though long posts put me off so rarely give them time. Some great memories to keep hold of and remember fondly. Brought a tear to my eye reading the undying love a son has for his father and vice versa, which brought home the short time I might have left with my own father (now 76), so to make the most of it while he's still here. Sorry for your loss. You can never lose those special memories of time spent together, which I hope will make things a little easier to bare. Thanks for taking the time to post.
  5. Neither did Clough, didn't turn out to bad for him did it!!!!!!
  6. Not had a better team since. Saying that though, just knew Batty was gonna miss the penalty when he walked up. Looking back, it was a foul by shearer for the disallowed goal.
  7. Shame one of our free to air channels like itv4 or quest haven't signed up for a highlights program. Would defo keep up to date with it. Anybody know of a decent highlights show online, maybe from a yank broadcaster?
  8. Asking a stupid question, but assuming this must have been written into his contract when they signed him, so guessing the other two were with previous clubs. Is it a sackable offence to fire someone if they've been done for drink driving in any job? Obviously it is if they were driving a company car!
  9. Fair play to the kid, think this was the right decision by him. Gets a chance to develop with first team football, something don't think he'd have gotten from one of the top six clubs. Softly softly catchy monkey and all that. Think he'll iron out some of those lapses in concentration he tends to have, which I believe were in part to do with playing LB, not his natural position. 13mil for someone that is unproven at CB is a great deal personally, though would have preferred he was bought by a bigger club and loaned back to us. Pressure is on for Lloyd though, he's now mentally out of the comfort zone which was academy progression.
  10. I’m hoping for an Ajax win tomorrow personally. I’m not a fan of same nation finals for the pure reason described in your first paragraph, just not in th spirit of European cup history imo, the competition should represent the best sides from differing football cultures pitting their wits against one another. We’ve got the fa cup If we want to watch to English sides play each other. What a game though, love to watch Liverpool purely for the way they play football, and that would go for any team in the past.
  11. Its not about expectations, Im looking at the cold hard facts. Finishing 18th out of 24 in the home league table is the reason we are not in the playoffs. 2017-18 we finished 10th, 2016-17 14th, 2015-16 (near relegation season) 20th As for expectations at the start of each season, Im forever the optimist, comes with the territory of supporting a local team, so you always start a clean slate season with a feeling playoffs or higher might be possible. Guess thats why real fans stick by England because there is always one season that will buck the trend in your lifetime, a case of 'you never know'.
  12. How have we overachieved? Pretty sure its a given in football its easier to win your homes games than it is away. So in my books we've underachieved
  13. Think it was the Celtic 3rd goal yesterday....check it out, literally Sunday league defending. What an embarressment!
  14. Bit torn with their plight though. Of course wouldn’t wish it on their fans, but reckon they’ve been cursed ever since Gartside their former prem chairman seriously recommended a closed shop in the prem, so no relegation to and from. Reckon the football gods cast a spell on them at that moment.
  15. Watched bassini on ssn the other day....came across as a ‘billy bullsh*t market trader’ that would try and sell you a fake Rolex as being real. What a class A bellend, defo better off without him.
