    An unlikely candidate to be a successful manager, never looked like a student of the game when playing and seemed hell bent on compromising his career through ill discipline off the pitch.


    I still wonder what Rooney could have achieved with something near the work ethic and discipline of C.Ronaldo, given his record breaking stats anyway. 



    he was a hell of a player though. Someone sent me a video of his goal when has was crying at the ref for ten seconds, then smashed a volley in to the top corner.

    akinfenwa is a sex offender

    over and over

    just because it rhymes

    apparently he had it at another game and thought it was funny

    That's abhorrent. I doubt he found it funny when ever it was sent

    What are peoples views regarding supporting or just following a second club. Through work I've come into contact with a lot of away fans at both Hillsborough and Toy Town this season and heard a lot of them discussing their "other" club. The club is usually a top Premier league side and it seems a more common phenomenon amongst the younger element. One of the strangest moments was seeing two scunthorpe fans giving each other grief with one being a fan of Manchester United and the other Liverpool.

    I find it all a bit weird as it doesn't seem that common in our fanbase, probably due to us viewing ourselves as a big club. Having Said that I do look out for the results of another Club (Millwall) but the results don't really effect me at all in the same way that Wednesdays do. 

    I don't think it really matters. I look for my home town club, Northampton and Wednesday who I grew up supporting.

    A well done for backing his manager in the this window and the one before.


    We’ve signed some very good players for this level, tied first teamers down to new contracts and utilised the loan market to bring in quality,


    Over to you Darren and team. 

    Solid post.

  5. You may well be right. It maybe takes Newcastle four or five seasons to challenge for the title. Relegation delays this by a year or so. 


     A mid table side will lose out on the revenue from being in the prem so short term it suits them more having Newcastle not being able to buy tried and tested players. Example they could buy the two Burnley center backs and Burnley are now close to certs to go down.

    You can't be seriously suggesting that corporate meals aren't as good as pub food

    Whilst not the best food ever of all time, the corporates I've experienced have all been better than pub food. Every time.

    Besides this is stadium/concourse we're discussing - not the corporate stuff - that's for prawnsandwichbridgetalk.co.uk




    maybe pick your pub better?


    the grounds I've been to are in the top tier of hospitality and the food generally sucks. 

    im sure this has a cross over.


    going back can you provide examples?

    There are some clubs who do catering really well and get praise for it

    Surely if you're a football club you'd nip along there, sort a contract with their suppliers and do the same as that club does with the same offerings / food etc as a starting point?

    Which clubs do catering really well? I regularly have corporate at Spurs, Arsenal, Chelsea, o2 and Wembley. None of these are better than a pub close.

    If true that's ridiculous that the game was stopped for that, this is going to be a regular thing every game now all over the country if you stop it for a few numpties. 

    sorry if this has been asked before, Just catching up. With everything that's been going on recently, stopping the game should be normal?

    It is but there is an Essex cricketer who says he was racially abused in 2001 he reported it and nothing happened 

    Essex haven't tried to pass it off as banter. For me this is where the case has blown up. 

    I fully expect other counties, once players come forward to held accountable.

    Hopefully, it will bring it out into the open fully and clean up the game as a whole. Yorkshire seems to be all that's being spoken about at the movement and the other accused clubs aren't being talked about and if they are not in any great detail. Instead of just looking at Yorkshire look at all the counties asking anyone who feels they have been racially abused to come forward anonymously if they want.

    isn't that due to how it's been handled?
