    The reason supporters still go

    Cheers Mc. Yeah going everywhere in the 80s - mostly second division - when your local derby was at Oakwell. Thumped there 0-3 by halftime once. Fuck me - imagine that?! Did it stop me going? Was I a sheep? Was anything different then to what it is now? “Why you wasting your money and time on...

    The reason supporters still go

    I was never good at football. In fact I’m not good at any sports. Which is a bit of a killer for me cos I love most of them. This is why I relate to Mc’s post about falling in love with the supporters. I was actually a little late in going to away games on my own - 1983 (first home game being in...

    The reason supporters still go

    Despite everything that has been thrown at NUFC including a semi-permanent (that is turning to concrete) split in the supporter-base, deliberately engineered by one fat man, this is a brilliant piece about what it means to supporters who go and does take you back to the days before...

    New Kit ??

    I didn’t like either of them 2bh. The first one I saw Newcastle get whacked in at Leeds so double reason to dislike it there. I remember you had that other one OM- when I saw you in it I thought you’d got a part-time job at Delaval Ices.

    If fatty fucks off and the hitman and her get in I might purchase for me laddo.

    New Kit ??

    As much as it’ll be cheap and I prefer Adidas - I think it looks ok and best since Ben Arfa days. Some will say not very creative, no doubt, but I prefer kits leaning towards the traditional...

    The NUFC Takeover Thread Saga - Qatar Influenced Premier League Protecting It's Investments..

    This is why they’re interested in a English football club UKR - because they’re in hock to their eyeballs with Qatar. https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/snp-urged-to-break-qatar-relationship-pp88sdqmp https://theferret.scot/scottish-government-fire-keeping-quiet-human-rights-abuses-qatar/...

    The NUFC Takeover Thread Saga - Qatar Influenced Premier League Protecting It's Investments..

    Another Friday. Tick to... oh what’s the fucking point?! Lost total interest in this now 2bh. It’s abundantly clear the PL have been bought by Qatar. Just like UEFA and FIFA. And indeed, the SNP according to various reputable newspapers, whose MPs have been particularly vocal in bumping their...

    The NUFC Takeover Thread Saga - Qatar Influenced Premier League Protecting It's Investments..

    Makes no sense to me whatsoever KK but I hope you’re right! To me, I can’t see why prospective buyers - intrinsically linked to a devout and stringent Muslim state that practices Sharia Law - would wish to be associated with, and effectively have their hands tied to, a banned organisation in...

    To add- all forms of gambling are BANNED in SA. I think this is going south lads.

    NUFC v Spurs

    I get you’ve got your issues with each other OM - that’s abundantly clear - but all I’m asking is try not to let that antipathy manifest itself in such posts like that - Howay marra!

    NUFC v Spurs

    Yes - anybody on £40K a week should be proficient at what they do UKR but this is the world of football where average players earn a fortune. I agree re your over reliance point on the keeper and yes - it’s no coincidence.

    NUFC v Spurs

    I’m sorry OM - and it’s not my spat - but really? Disagreeing* about a player is one thing - but, Howay man? Sorry like - and I am - but this is piss poor and you know it. Please stop. * indeed, if there actually is that much of a disagreement anyway. You reckon he’s shite. Period. Mc gives me...

    Well - another week. Tick tock. However, seeing all the measures The SA state seem to be putting in place regarding safeguarding intellectual property actually gives me a degree of hope I erstwhile didn’t have. They seem to be going through a lot of hoops, which shows they are very persistent...

    I do Mc. As far as tv companies and world media is concerned the only circus in town is the PL and I share your concerns. It’s all about #1 for the PL and that’s what their whole ethos has been based upon since it’s inception, I’m afraid.

    yeah I remember the avatar for Mc! on the subject tho I agree about the subs and would be worried if this came into the game on a permanent basis for the very reason Mc points out. Another worry for me would be keeping drinks breaks as well. It’ll be one step away from splitting the game into 4...
