    They were talking cricket, (had Lamby on the phone) mentioned Steve Bruce was favourite for Newcastle job but also that Steve Harmison was an outsider in the market.  Just nonsense chit chat really, hopefully the Bruce rumours will also turn out to be just that.



    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.

    Where did you watch that Marseille team in the early 90’s?


    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,

    Waddle was thought to be done and a spent force, He was out of the England fold at the time.


    Nobody was looking at Waddle and thinking he could hack it back in England.


    Diame has tore this league a new one every time he has had a run in it. 


    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.

  4. 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.
