Re: 7 years

Obviously these things become a bit romanticised in the mind as time passes, but one thing that still stands out for me was how silence seemed to fall round the ground when that ball fell to Tiote. The aftermath is hard to recall; one of those moments where you're intoxicated by the atmosphere aroun...

Re: FA cup match thread - Chelski v NUFC

Feel like we've been saying we need an actual striker for about 5 years.

Re: Match day - NUFC v Swansea

One of the things I will criticise Rafa for is his persistence with Joselu in the first half of the season, he let him get progressively worse in a hostile environment which really destroyed his confidence, he really wouldn't be hated as much as he is if he was taken out when he clearly was off for...

Re: Match day - NUFC v Swansea

The club isn't gonna be sold. We're gonna sell Gayle, because Joselu gets us the goals, but we don't get a Gayle replacement 'over the line'. We'll survive by the skin of our teeth and then Rafa will walk and HMS Ashley will chug along providing a steady flow of dolla dolla.

Re: Match day - West Ham v NUFC

Stream was showing all players in tunnel for a couple minutes before walking out. Lascelles just stood their chatting at front as captain next to Antonio next to him. All rest behind didn't look particularly arsed. Probably means sod all at end of the day, but it was a million miles away from that ...

Cos the tall man is spent? Maybe use Gayle on the break to stretch them. They can't commit as many forward with that
And Perez isn't?

Was quite sure I spotted QWOP at the Angel of the North a few months back. I'm also pretty sure I spotted him on the night we played Bordeaux. <scratch> So either you're stalking him or he's stalking you?
