Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (January 2017)

Next - 5 things we've learnt from this discussion <whistle> 1. Don't express your opinion of a local newspaper on a football forum. 2. COT works for The Chronicle <roll> 2.I do have zero charisma on camera, so I could qualify for the auto roll videos they do <roll> Don't have a parka coat though

Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (January 2017)

Driving readership/clicks is not sufficient to prove a paper is 'shithouse'. You could lay that charge at The Economist, FT, Wall Street Journal etc. Look I don't like Ryder's style at all, but to be fair to the Chronicle, they usually report rumours as rumour (not fact) and there's demand for spec...

Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (January 2017)

Of course a newspaper's purpose is to drive readership/clicks. What a bizarre criticism. Like saying Tesco's sole purpose is to get ppl to buy stuff. It's not exactly a bizarre criticism when people still exclaim their surprise at certain "reputable" journos getting involved with a non-st...

Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (January 2017)

<ok> Disappointed the local journos are engaging in the s*** stirring mind. Thought they'd know better. The Chronicle is a shithouse newspaper, they have one purpose and that is to sell as many papers or get as many clicks onto their horrendous website. Of course a newspaper's purpose is to drive r...

Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (January 2017)

Sometimes a young player bursts through with a first season and is great, but then gets worked out/ it was an unusually good run of form and never hits it again. I hope this isn't true with Perez but I fear it is

Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (January 2017)

I can't believe people are wanting Cleverly in , he only played at Man Utd because he had good players around him , they made him look decent, but he can't get a game at Everton , so what does that tell you ! It just shows me how bad our midfield is , i.e. Colback , if they think Cleverly is good !...

Re: The Message of Hate Thread

People in relationships that combine their names. A guy at my work called Liam is in a relationship which someone called Adam. They (and other people) refer to themselves on Facebook as 'Ladam' <puke> Ladam sounds like someone from a rugby team who is 'King of Banter'. Chugs pints of beer mixed wit...

Re: Holidays

MiniOT's school announced they were going to have to amend term dates for 2017 so held off for a bit on booking. Spoke with her head teacher yesterday as the new term dates amounted to 4 days less of an Easter half term and told her that if I was forced to I'd pay the fine for taking her out 1.5 da...

Man, right after running around and traveling for the holidays, my wife and I find out that her grandparents from Columbus, OH, are coming into town for 5 days. Not to mention I'm already heading down to Tampa, FL, this weekend for the College Football National Championship. I guess that means my s...

They'd be daft to let him go for thrice that. He's vital to them staying up and his chance creation is right up there, given how little Sunderland create.

Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (January 2017)

I'd take a permanent deal on Cleverly. He's a mediocre PL player, but still a PL player. We'd get him relatively cheap and would improve us Rather get Carrick. Contract expires in the summer. Would do a job in the centre. And can actually pass a ball. Promoted teams often have little of the ball an...
