  1. We got 3 points, but the gaps in our squad are obvious. A new RB, can't wait for Zouma to get back from his injury to partner JT. A Mid-Field General is desperately needed ( Lampard/Ballack type ) and another striker.
  2. Hazard still not getting the protection from the officials. Getting kicked all over the pitch. Think this will be his last season here in the EPL.
  3. I think that Utd's treatment of Van Gaal was shocking. For months, the vultures were circling with regards to Jose joining and yet the Utd board said nothing. If it had been us, Jeez!!! The press got what they wanted, Jose at a BIG club, the only club in England worth managing. HA! Watch the wheels fall off in 2 years time.
  4. You should have listened to NBC on-line, it was even worse. Shocking, Chelsea still the villains of football.
  5. The Manics are the one band that blew me away. I saw them in Cambridge a few years back and boy, the energy! Awesome live act. I've tried to educate my kids on Elvis and the 90's Brit Pop, but to no avail. Though I have got 2 of them into Heavy Metal, albeit, slowly. Still can't get them to like Lamb of God, but give it time. One band that I have discovered lately are these guys; Love the sound and feel of this album. You Tube can be a wonderful thing sometimes.
  6. Well, all I can say is "Conte, good luck." Our chickens have finally come home to roost. We've got away with it for about 5 years, papering over the cracks, touching up here and there, a dab of paint. But now, we have a major rebuild on our hands. We have been guilty of keeping players, key players/leaders, past their sell by date instead of selling them on sooner with another player coming in. So we are left with 4/5 leaders who's legs go, we sell them or allow them to leave which leaves us with no true leaders on the pitch. We have 10 out-field players looking around scratching their heads. I don't want 11 super stars on the pitch, just 11 players who are willing to go the extra mile, fight for each other and have 2 stand out players/leaders who can calm the nerves. A re-build is a must and if it means missing out on CL for another season, so be it.
  7. I didn't start until 4 years ago, so my knees,shoulders,back or neck aren't shot like most players around my age. But when I took it up, the first two months of playing I walked like someone who had just had a car crash. As for your hands and ribs, the recovery rate seems to take longer as we get older. Not fair!
  8. Do or die for England today against the Windies in the T20 Final. Will lightening strike twice? As for me, my rugby season finished yesterday. My team team finished 2nd in the Eastern Counties Greene King Div 4 South, so that is promotion for us. Be careful what you wish for! Time to give my aching 50 year old bones and body a rest....................
  9. What a win and talk about making the last over even more exciting!! Oh Lordy! And when Pakistan beat India tomorrow, riots in the streets, me thinks.
  10. Not for KIDS!!!
  11. Most people cherish the music of their teens, no matter what decade it was. I can still hear me old man telling me, "Call this music, in my day..............." He loved Elvis, skiffle, rock 'n' roll etc, so I imagine that his parents were telling him the same thing. But I also loved, loved the 90's Britpop. Some truly great music,bands and fashion. Really miss those days and I was 30 back then. True, it does feel like the Victorian era again, with the haves and have nots, the divide is greater than ever. Whether the youth of today take an interest in politics is hard to say. I know that my son (just finishing his 2nd year in 6th Form) studied Russia and Germany for 2 years and has made him a socialist at heart. We've had some interesting conversations! As for the quality music today??? Maybe that's down to the stations choice of music? Radio 6 is a must though. The music of the mid 70's were full of anger and resentment (The Clash, Stranglers, Billy Bragg to name but 3) where as now, there's just apathy.
  12. I think 1977 smashed the Establishment and the Victorian grip of this country for good.
  13. We won the Triple Crown after beating those chaps from the West of England, and still nothing on here?
  14. Norwich defended very well yesterday and were unlucky not to get a point. Hopefully they will be a bit deflated after that result?
  15. So, our choices at the end of the season are to try and beat Leicester and give Spurs a chance to win the title or to throw the game? If it comes down to the last game that is? Rather have Leicester win it and can you imagine lots of kids waking round next season with Leicester shirts on?
