Ace. I love the transfer window. It makes people go CRAZY.
Also, while we're on about football: Souness BUYING Wolves?!? What the hell is that about?!
he'll get another managerial job.
Pompey are the Primal Scream of the Premiership, picking off the dregs of famous bands that once had great potential - a sort of pikey Bolton really.
Apologies in advance to Colin, before I'm had up on the carpet!
and are you talking about Little Barrie?!
if so then Bugger off again!
blah to you young lady with your fancy ways! (insert smile)
Little Barrie are simply awful!
Oh dear this is like the old days - sorry, bird!
them then.. They're not awful, they're just not your bag baby. I don't see why you dislike Portsmouth so intensely anyway, they've done amazingly well recently, I though you liked a poor man doing well?!
he's bitter :)
it wasn't in bonuses from managing Liverpool
have paid us nearly one million pounds for Jonathan Stead. He averages one goal every 17 games.
It's a non-stop rollercoaster of fun today. Jon Stead: most Premier League clubs on one CV with fewest goals?
Blackburn where he was good then faded, and a rubbish Sunderland team where he was crap. Ten goals in 77 appearences is his record.
Surely this must be awarded to Emile Heskey or Aliadiere or someone.
good at blackburn for a couple of months and then shocking afterwards.
he actually put in some decent performances for us in the premiership but he can't finish and he's soft as shite
He's played for Arsenal in the Premiership. Maybe West Ham too. Neither Wolves or Celtic are in the Premiership
And scored once.
Of which 20 were off the bench. So that's a little unfair.
liverpool on tuesday so for this week i am willing to let him off my harsh words.
You must have scared him or played him out of position or summat, because whilst he was on loan to us this year he's been brilliant.
he got 3 goals in 15 games. which is shit.
3 goals in 17
He was playing as a link man, and his all round play was outstanding.
He was nominated for Novembers player of the month.
with someone who got 16 goals in 18 games in the SPL. I'm really not too upset to be rid of him...
Stokes appears to be a class act.
to be suggesting that his goalscoring record was vastly superior at derby. as i said below, he's a technically gifted player but can't finish, won't fight and is way out of his depth in the premier league.
He's an enigmatic one. I think he could bloom into an Andy Johnson type late developer, but as you say, he needs to learn to fight.
"he needs to learn to fight"
you've either got it or you haven't. i spent a whole season of watching defenders knock him over and him sitting on the ground pleading with the referee. it was embarassing.
He just stood there looking dopey while Stevie Howard and Lupoli bagged the glory.
quite skilful, good first touch, decent range of passing ... which suggests he should be playing in midfield, rather than upfront.
"He did not cover himself in glory in his 13 games under three different managers"
Of course they are faithful to ALL the clubs they play for.
in the land don't you think?
players who you have to wonder how they are still professionals. And at this level. Traore would be awful in the Conference.
Is that Traore is a European champion. And not just any old champion. Remember his clearance off the line in the final? Crucial to Liverpools win.
used to look quite promising, though ... back in the day
and remember Dudek making those saves?
that was funny as.
they just lack the common sense, timing, judgement that should be intrinsic to a pro
and yes they usually go to Bolton or Portsmouth!!!
oh dear again!
MegaLOL. It's like being in a pub-rock band who once headlined Glastonbury
who's won the CL.
no that was harsh of me
On his day. Although he is also a complete cunt and I'm still not entirely sure he didn't fake his injury in the final so he could have a nice sit down.
one player who should be stripped of his medal. Spose I just dislike him A LOT because of the above.
Barry Fry is my stepson
He's actually younger than his own stepson.
League 2', if you please!
I can see Traore being a good signing. How many of you expected Kanu to be up there with the Premierships top goal scorers this season?
Also, worst player to have a Champions League Winners medal: Jonathan Greening?
yeah, I was trying to think of someone crap on the subs bench in 1999.
Re: Kanu, he has always had the ability but just somehow ended up at a couple of crap teams.
But it's kind of less notable as he didn't even get on the pitch during, let alone start, the final.
I thought he'd come on, for some reason. David May was also on the bench that night!
Also, out of the eleven players that started for Bayern that night, ten of them were German. That's pretty impressive, no?
That's the fucking answer. In every photo of them celebrating, that cunt is in the front middle. Stealing the limelight. 'kin David May.
In other news, Steve McManaman has won the Champions League twice. TWICE. In terms of honours achieved overseas, he is the most successful English footballer in history
That's just... ridiculous
was a good player
I guess it's just more to do with the lack of English players going abroad. You think of some of the players England have produced over the years. It's just weird thinking that McManaman is technically the most successful English player to play overseas
although M.Owen actually came out of his real madrid spell with a decent scoring ratio.
and paul "black managers need more respect" ince cant seem to stop going on about Italy.
has signed for Norwich! Hurrah! *dull*
