Re: New squad after potential takeover

What's the general consensus on Rafa potentially coming back? I'm not too sure about it tbh, I'd prefer him over Bruce but if people like Poch or Allegri are available I'd be inclined to go with 1 of them for a fresh start. There will always be the argument that Rafa could have been excellent with ...

Re: Coronavirus

Too many people don't see just how disgusting this government is. They really are like the Mike Ashley of politics, 'You guys don't understand how f***ing horrible we can be'.

Re: Mackems

Is it? I lived in Dover for a couple of years and there were a fair few Liverpool fans there at the time and most had familial connections to Liverpool. Never saw a Mackem in Dover though. Too close to Yewrope? Hope you've recovered from that. I know loads of Liverpool fans and some claim a family ...

Re: Mackems

First step would be for them to stop worrying about who should support who. Feels smalltime to be so petty and territorial like that (and I know every club have fans guilty of it). I totally agree. I mean a Liverpool fan from Dover is a bit of a stretch , but a Sunderland fan from North Shields sho...

I gave up on episode 4, it's just bizarre.

Re: Toon Takeover Thread

That Bruce interview is strange, at least it acknowledges that things are going on with it all now unlike in the past where there have been no comments from anybody.

Re: What is your favourite beer brand?

I've drank s*** loads in the 9 weeks I've been on lockdown, much more than I would ordinarily drink. I'm not getting shitfaced or anything (parental responsibilities etc.), just enjoying maybe a few cans of beer or a few glasses of wine in the evening and a little bit more on weekends, but it's nea...

What has everyone been drinking throughout lockdown? My lockdown has mainly consisted of Heineken.
I started with Heineken as it was on offer. Have also had Bud and Amstel. Had plenty of ales as well and a few ciders. And a litre of Honey JD.

Re: Toon Takeover Thread

Think a lot of the opposition(not from our fans obviously) is from people who don't want rivals. BeinSports and PSG are linked, 10 Premier League clubs don't want another PL powerhouse. There's probably 19 PL clubs that wouldn't want this to go through. The PL have also backed themselves into a corn...

Re: Football Set to Return?

Squeezing a season in from September before the Euros won't be easy, what if it can't be done safely then? Scrap that season too? For me the sensible option would have been to keep all leagues "open" in the sense of unfinished, then make a decision as the safety picture becomes clearer. If you can'...

Re: Football Set to Return?

A Brighton player has tested positive apparently. Just can't see how the season can end and I can't see what the point of trying is now. Just focus on a safe way to start next season in September.

I've got a theory and it's a bit "out there" but, I think that Boris Johnson is a bumbling, clueless, dangerous f***ing idiot. He hasn't got the first idea what the **** is going on or what to do about it and neither do the people who are paid to advise him on these things. He's struggling because ...

Re: Coronavirus

Once lockdown is over I'm thinking of self isolating an extra week or 2, got few people in my family that need shielding and I don't trust the government or people in general, so I'll wait it out before I decide on getting back to normal. Be a step or two 'behind' the government. I'm not letting th...

Re: The Most Embarrassing Moment of Your Life

I hope not... A couple of weeks ago, my flatmate's boyfriend and his mates came up and we went on a night out, where I was bought drinks for the entire night. After drinking an obscene amount we went through the park to get home and I went to bed. After a few hours of sleep I woke up to see s*** al...

Re: New squad after potential takeover

Both back up goalkeepers could easily be moved on. Darlow definitely should go but Elliot should be given a choice. If he's happy to be third choice then stay. The full back areas will probably get a huge overhaul. Manquillo is out of contract and nothing appears to be happening and Yedlin apparentl...

"Only" 500 deaths in hospitals today.
Wait until Tuesday - that’s when it jumps back up after the the weekend.
I remember hearing this last week but did it ever jump back up that much? Feels like at the moment we've reached the peak and are gradually on the way back down.

Re: Toon Takeover Thread

Let's face it, football seems to exist in its own moral bubble when it comes to the fans. The majority of protests against Mike Ashley haven't been because of his dubious ethical work practices, his use of zero hours contracts or his exploitation of foreign workers - they have been about his lack o...
