  1. "Ah yes, well....ahem... what's in it?" "Water, flour, and some barley and the last of the chip fat" "I can't eat it Stubbs. Looks like an Elephants Shag-snot" Thanks for that Snooty old chap....I've just wet my knickers
  2. What an absolutely pathetic argument you have put up there to support Campbell, and then to use the race card to try and stifle dissent. What a wánker you are.
  3. Can understand that mate...just look around Hillsborough on a match day and see how many black faces there are.
  4. If you can afford to go to football on that wage then you're getting too much
  5. "Football is simple but the hardest thing to do is play football simply." Johan Cruyff.
  6. What a coincidence... I saw a car on Friday as well.
  7. I understand what you are saying with regards the formation, but Rhodes will never be the player you describe. He's a finisher, pure and simple. He has the knack of being in the right place at the right time...so you either play to his strengths or play someone else. That's the reality.
  8. Fair enough, but when Rhodes has been scoring for fun it's mostly been in a front two with quality wingers providing him. So why would you want him to adapt his game. You wouldn't buy a Ferrari to go rallying or a Subaru to go track racing would you?
  9. The thing is that StudentOwl was correct with his ball in net opinion...but it wasn't very well thought out as he was having a pop at Rhodes for not doing just that in his time at Wednesday, but there are reasons for that. We have to deal with reality and the fact is that Rhodes is a Wednesday player who has proved to be very good at "kicking the ball into other teams nets" over a long period and with different teams. So surely the answer is to create a system whereby he can do that for us. It's certainly not to chuck the baby out with the bath water.
  10. So...what we need is a player who has proven ability to"kick the ball into the other teams net".......if only we had such an option.
  11. Not a big name manager, but the right manager...and it's absolutely crucial to a clubs success. Ferguson, Wenger, Clough, Nicholson, Robson, Catterick.....I could go on....none of these were big name managers when they went to their clubs but they were the right man at the right time and proved to be a perfect fit....and all went on to have huge impact on the clubs they managed. Much as it pains me to say it, our neighbours have got such a man ATM.
  12. Yet another veiled criticism of the Chairman. BTW...when did Brentford, Bristol and Derby get promoted recently... I must have missed it.
  13. Why's he there?... how would I know, I'm not his keeper.
  14. He's sat with his family at the Café Nero on Half Moon Street in central London.
