  1. Strangely, regardless of what stats say (and it seems wrongly in this case), I've always imagined us to have terrible record against them; particularly down there.
  2. Probably goes along with everything you hear about him being a bit of a d!ck. Means that when it's going well everyone can laugh along but when things turn against you it makes situations spiral and get harder to recover. Aside from this, anyone who loses to us probably deserves the sack.
  3. Best you could give to Umbro is that maybe they didn't get what it was when Linfield suggested it? Although I'm pretty sure these larger companies use local contractors in the design process. At some point of this process someone should have realised at least. And if they did then that's beyond shameful.
  4. Surely action should be taken about this? It's so blatant that it goes beyond a joke!
  5. https://www.theguardian.com/football/the-agony-and-the-ecstasy/2020/jun/01/crystal-palace-relegation-liquidation-10-years-ago Written by a Palace fan, looking back at their miraculous escape... We were absolutely rotten at this time and truly deserved to go down but I still have a special hatred for clubs such as Palace and Leicester who took the administration route before returning to spending beyond their means and now live it up off the back of that.
  6. It was pretty entertaining watching most of that - him and Nuhiu seem like a proper double act. All of a sudden it became genuinely touching when he was in the cemetery. Also, give it 3 years and his kid is gonna be taller than him.
  7. People keen to put an asterisk next to Celtic's title were less keen to talk about the actual tainted titles given out in the 90s. The title isnt the main thing here; not sure why someone was going on about Sevcos performances against Celtic, have you looked at the league table? The main issue is the relegation and I do feel for Hearts. Flip side is that someone was always going to lose out and why should that be a promoted team missing what they earned? It's a tricky situation and honestly my gut instinct for all the leagues is that null and void would be the only way to go, but we still see teams losing out in that case too.
  8. Is that how you would choose to headline an article with him? Or would you mention the club he's most known for playing for and with whom he won the league?
  9. "Former Man City goalkeeper"; he played 8 times for them and won the title just 4 years ago with Leicester.
  10. You should all cancel your memberships for them somehow allowing this through. Ironic they mention "lazy punditry"; this is shocking journalism aimed at those for whom life revolves around the "top 4/6/whoever has the money"
  11. The Simpsons SPFL page and Scottish Football Memes accounts are gold. Take the Mickey out of the play all you like but some of the self deprecating stuff Scottish fans come out with is pure gold. And, for what it's worth, I'd rather they divvy up prize money as per current standings but with no titles/promotion/relegation.
  12. Beheadings, public executions, a devastating war in Yemen in which innocent civilians are being slaughtered, the export of the ideology which has given us modern Islamic terrorism and the murder of a journalist, among other things, are one thing but...RENAMING A STADIUM?! Outrageous behaviour.
  13. Couple of things bugging me more and more about the coverage of this, really highlighting the media love-in we've always known exists with that club: Firstly, on the sportswashing side of things; while it's being mentioned, they are somehow making Ashley out to be as bad - or even worse - than the Saudi regime. Now, I dont like Mike Ashley and he runs a horrific business model and treads all over the weakest people he can find to get where he is, but let's not pretend he's even in the same league as the Saudis. The brushing over of this is absolutely sickening to be honest. Staveley herself is also no angel; she is comparable to Ashley in terms of everything you could possibly hold against him. Secondly, is this idea of Newcastle coming "back to the elite". If this is in any way base in fact then we are one of the top 6 clubs in the country (spoiler: we're not). They've won nothing in decades and their most recent top flight title was even longer ago than ours. They are in no sense an elite club and the only basis of this is the fact that the Keegan side of the 90s will be held in misty eyed nostalgia by the generation who currently dominate journalism. They were entertaining, yes, but they still won nothing. Supporters groups are moaning that they've twice been relegated under Ashley, and yet in reality they are a yo-yo club just like us.
  14. Still tracking back...at Hillsborough.
