Re: Basketball

I'd be surprised if curry or Thompson leave, but KD could. He's only on a two year deal with the second year being player option. If they are still having chemistry problems by end of season he could walk. If GSW are looking for a 5 then Nerlens Noel would be a great fit with them, although I reall...

Re: Basketball

Watched a lot of games this season and it appears many of the top teams haven't quite settled into "play-off" mode yet. Quite a few upsets and unexpected victories/losses on the very long road to meaningful basketball. In my opinion GSW will miss Bogut more than many predicted and i though...

Re: What would win a fight between a tiger and a hippo

Another great thread. Ive given this one a fair bit of thought and i reckon this fight could take a long time to reach it's final outcome. Both combatants have fearsome weapons but in my opinion both would struggle to deploy them effectively against each other in the decisive areas. Tigers are aweso...

Re: Who would win in a fight between a chimpanzee and a kangaroo?

This is a difficult one. I once saw a documentary where a group of chimps attacked other chimps in lesser numbers. It was brutal. The speed and strength was unbelievable but it was the sheer raw aggression that left it's mark. I'd say it was a frenzied attack at it's most extreme. I always knew kan...

Re: NUFC and being a Geordie

There's quite a few Geordies who are Sunderland supporters. Can't understand why they sing "we hate Geordies?" Not all do!! I can absolutely guarantee a very good chunk of Sunderland's singing repertoire was "Geordie based" in the 70's and a fair bit of the 80's. Some parts of t...

Re: NUFC and being a Geordie

Just for balance i'm a Geordie and i support Sunderland!! I know a chap from Hampshire and he supports Sunderland through no familial association with the region at all. He just remembers watcging a cup final highlights as a kid but he's red and white and devout and has been for over 40 years. It j...

Re: The 'Let's Embrace Relegation' Thread

If it's any consolation at one stage i wasn't too bothered if we'd gone down. Being involved in relegation battles every season is/was starting to become boring and in my opinion slowly strangling the fanbase. Going to many PL games is/was becoming a very expensive chore. In a nutshell i was starti...

Re: The 'Let's Embrace Relegation' Thread

I suppose the downside would be relegation at the hands of local rivals but the "punishment" of a potentially enjoyable championship season wouldn't be the worse fate to suffer. The only thing that's changed my mind is Big Sam has started to make me feel we could scrap our way to mid tabl...

Re: Newcastle Utd vs Manchester City - 19/04/16

Two points dropped. Only one team deserved to win that game and it wasn't city. A draw flattered them. I was glad to hear the final whistle. On the flip side what's happened to Man City? All that highly paid talent and it looked like they couldn't give a flying f*ck. More a case of us not letting C...

Re: The 'Let's Embrace Relegation' Thread

It can all change again in 1 or 2 games. This race is far from over. The real damage was done when teams like Swansea and Palace(just about*) slipped the noose turning it into a 3 horse race. At the moment Sunderland are playing better than a relegated team but that'll count for nothing after we sta...

Re: Combined Eleven

Elliot Janmaat Mbemba Kone Van Aanholt M'Vila Kirchoff Borini Khazri Townsend Defoe Goalkeeper wise I think it's close (Krul is injured). Kone seems the best defender of both our teams, Mbemba has quality/potential and I don't know enough about your right backs to comment, but Janmaat is a good...

Re: Combined Eleven

Don't know enough about the Sunderland team to be able to form an accurate XI, but I know I'd have Kirchoff, Khazri, van Aanholt and Defoe at least. Also, I do love the huge difference in responses when a mackem posts on here compared to if it was the other way around. If I posted on a Sunderland f...

Re: Combined Eleven

Mbemba is the best centre back I've seen at Newcastle since Woodgate. He was clearly lacking sharpness at the weekend, but he's streets ahead of Kaboul and O'Shea. I'm yet to be convinced on Townsend - but I definitely wouldn't have Borini in there. I might be tempted to have Mitrovic instead (for ...
