  1. Sid in talking out his ass shocker. Van Gaal left Bayern so destroyed they won the champions league the season after he was sacked. He also tore the team apart, persisting with young, no-name players like Muller, Badstuber etc.
  2. Caulker is one of the more baffling signings of the month. Is there really no one better? Could cut and paste this for a few of MLG's posts.
  3. So is he still with you or not? Also agree with Dion and themadsheep and felt a little sorry for LvG had a point re. the media antics, especially just a few days out from Christmas.
  4. How to quickly become more likeable, by John Terry: http://www.bbc.com/sport/0/football/34709899
  5. I might choose to remember something that has some relevance, like the players and off field team that produced a perfect qualification record.
  6. There's something here. If you want something for the community, it has to be from the community. Maybe it's because I'm not from the city so don't get the context, but I don't understand why people put themselves into a depressive spiral over the ownership rather than doing something constructive, especially when the owner couldn't care less about those people. I'd really love to understand that mindset.
  7. And BG wonders why no one takes him seriously. Newcastle did well last week, had a good first half today then Aguero went crazy. It happened to Wolfsburg with Lewandowski too. You just move on, quickly.
  8. This. HBA has never had consistency, regardless of formation, team or manager. It's a huge assumption to say a better manager would mean a better performing HBA.
  9. I like that shirt and it got me thinking, when was Newcastle United owned cooperatively or by community? Wiki tells me it's never been community owned, which got me even more curious as to how people of the city became so attached to the club that has seemingly always been privately owned and controlled. Anyone got a short history?
  10. Yet people from very other country will move? Give it a rest. I think it's more to do with pay than reluctance to forego bangers and mash.
  11. Tele, calling it a fact doesn't make it so, neither does posting an essay make your opinion anymore valid. Here's my observation: you could have done a much better job but opted to play the man instead of the ball. Much like the Brazilian team vs Colombia.
  12. Messi, Neymar, Robben and even James Rodriguez have been great, but were expected to be great. Valbuena has been at that level too, but more so Asa creator and comes without the huge expectations of the aforementioned.
  13. Make up your mind! Penalties are part of the game and a skill, both to take and save.
  14. It's probably somewhere in the middle - poor planning from Ghana meets Boateng's petulance. Maybe he also doesn't really care about the Ghana NT. He did retire after the 2010 World Cup for similar reasons, though without the falling out.
  15. Suarez and Armstrong are both high profile sportsmen, both cheats. Commentary on both referred to psychological issues of both. But you find them incomparable, with the only explanation offered been that Suarez was instinctive or primal. Clearly you're not going to expand on that so let's leave that. My intent wasn't to misrepresent you, just to understand the difference, in your opinion, between the punishments for people in sport.
