    Kappa Innit

    Anyone notice how the shirt seems to have a 2-inch wide extra section sewn on to the sleeve? I mentioned in another thread about the new handball rule referring to the "sleeve line" as the deciding factor. My conspiracy theory, that clubs will instruct kit makers to make the sleeves longer, is...

    These Villa Fans Aren't Impressed With Wesley Claim

    Selling him now would be madness in my opinion. Yes, he struggled, yes he fell over (and stayed down) too much, but to discard him after half a season in the league is far too early. He's come into this league as a 22 year-old and whether we like it or not, it's going to take time. Not only...

    So what next? Who stays? Who goes? Who comes in?

    I'll go out on a limb and say we won't spend that kind of money. We know the owners can afford it, but I just can't see them sanctioning the purchase of a player or two in the Robinho / Ravanelli category. I do think they'll spend on what they see as the "right" players, probably somewhere in...

    Stop kidding us Fear, you'll never lose the passion, and in fact it will increase as the years pass. You'll just become more bitter... :lol:

    I see your point, but money-spent is only part of the equation, and let's not lose sight of where we were 12 months ago, and just as importantly 2-3 years ago. Foundation made out of quick-sand and all that.... I don't agree with everything Smith has said, but he's spot on in saying that we...

    Platt's goal in the Everton 6-2 game, Big Rodney gets it out wide, runs at the full-back and does a little shimmy and half-stepover to create space for his cross.... Classic moment that won many of us over....

    Case of mistaken identity.... Sir Graham: I want that Millwall lad, Sheringham. Doug: Yes, no problem we'll get the lad from Millwall, Cascarino. Sir Graham: No, Sheringham. Doug: Right then, Cascarino it is....

    so-so = what we used to refer laughingly to as yo-yo clubs, while we comfortably competed in the top tier of football... Sad that we are now in that group....

    I know, he doesn't rank highly for me, biggest mistake that Sir Graham ever made was bringing him in and derailing that 89-90 season, but I still think he'd have scored bags of goals in Division 2....
