  1. That's you in the spotlight, losing your religion
  2. Not being big-headed, but I'm the Elephant Man
  3. An pot-holed road surface of a man, ripe for tarmac. I tell you who definitely cares about what Richard Keys has to say: Richard Keys.
  4. I met Steve Harmison at a game between Knaresborough and North or South Shields (I forget which), as his brother Ben was playing and he was, at the time, banned from attending Ashington matches after some sort of fracas whilst he was managing there. He did not want to talk about cricket at all, but talked so much about football that we were trying to get away from him in the end. Nice bloke, about as suitable to manage a PL club as Wincey Willis.
  5. I thought they'd signed Dave Benson Phillips
  6. I like it, but I also don't give a sh*t. Hope this helps.
  7. It's odd, Benito Carbone is seen as a mercenary and Di Canio as a misunderstood genius, when Carbone contributed far more to us than Di Canio did.
  8. Other German Wednesday players include Chris Beard-Williams, Steve Pumpernicol and Jerry Jung (for two)
  9. Well, their European games were often on Sportsnight; I remember the floodlight failure game against Milan, where Waddle beat half of the team and then fell over. Also, Waddle is held in an extremely high regard by Marseille fans,
  10. Whilst I don't want to give the comparison too much time, anybody who watched that Marseille team did not think that Waddle was a spent force.
  11. Gordon used to work at the 6th Form College here in York, lovely bloke. He'll be absolutely delighted.
  12. If we sign Stewart Downing on loan, I'll bite my old chap off, spend the rest of the summer in a specially-converted green house growing it back, then run onto the pitch just before our first home match of the season, bite it off again, give it to Stewart Downing on a necklace and then die. To be fair, if I could bite my old chap off, I wouldn't be posting on Owlstalk at quarter past midnight.
  13. Unfortunately, Jake Bidwell has ruptured his epiglottis on his biro whilst signing and is out for life.
  14. Like: Exeter City Newcastle United York City I dislike all the obvious teams, with a special distaste for Rotherham United Dislike because their ground looks awful on television: Birmingham City Dislike because of flags: Crystal Palace Dislike because of unfortunate incident in North London snooker club: Arsenal Dislike because of fans actually trapping York City players in a stadium: Luton Town Dislike because of Paul Devlin: Any club for whom Paul Devlin has played Dislike because Gillingham is an absolute sh*thole: Gillingham Dislike because of large number of fans holding up relevant numbers of fingers to indicate the score: Watford Dislike because of the accuracy of the term 'Scouse Mackems': Everton Dislike because of wretched plasticity: MK Dons Dislike because 3000 of you turned up in the PL but somehow maintain this aura of self-righteousness: AFC Wimbledon Dislike because of being in same venue as Christmas Party, 1999: Barnet
  15. The poor man's Franz Carr, and believe me that man is very poor indeed.
  16. That's how good it was, top corner from 110 miles.
  17. Yep, our old groundsman was a real Desso conner
  18. Great to see somebody finally giving Ray Parlour a chance
  19. I heard he'd been caught doing three other grounds at the same time, a very four-lawn situation
