make that £50
Nash, Bramble, Sibierski. Stellar stuff.
on his way to newcastle?
they're seriously seriously fucked.
lower score than sunderland's record?
you are lucky you are my co-captain on saturday.
are all relegation candidates for me.
Pompey, Sunderland, Villa, Newcastle, Hammers, Blackburn and Reading. I wouldn't be surprised to see the others in the bottom half.
got himself a £24,000 A WEEK contract!!
'Premiership is the best league in the World' thing falls down. Because no club in their right mind on the continent would pay such a mediocre player that amount of money.
These are the sorts of players who annoy me. Why sign Sibierski on that kind of money when you could find an attacking midfielder of his quality for a fraction of that salary in the lower divisions.
But you can trawl through most Premiership clubs squads and say the same thing, even Liverpool, who seem to sign anyone who was brought up on a diet of sangria and paella.
you talk about Josemi and Nunez like that!
derby, wigan, fulham.
birmingham and man city not too far away.
the only teams I wouldn't put in the "potential releagation" bracket are the obvious big four plastic clubs and Everton and Spurs, who seem to have become fairly stable over the past couple of years.
The rest? A bad start and anything can happen.
What a phrase....ha
about Bolton then, by those criteria. Although I'm not sure Little Sam has the same charisma as the big version.
But Pompey will be nowhere near going down. Just as before last season started I said they'd push for Europe, I shall back the up again. They'll finish top 8 this year, especially is Muntari turns it on.
will struggle now Allardyce has gone.
Whether they'll go down depends on their first 7 or 8 games.
Same with Portsmouth, and any number of Redknapp's dodgy foreign imports won't convince me otherwise!
In an ideal world of course, as long as the scum from the dump up the A52 finish bottom, I couldn't really give two hoots!
Bolton struggling. As you say, will Sammy Lee be able to attract the calibre of player Allardyce did?
a lot of it was down to the calibre of player.
Henrik Pedersen? Like, who?
Tal Ben Haim? Like, who?
Stylianos Giannakopoulos? Like, who? (remember he signed for Bolton WELL BEFORE Greece were European champions)
Abdoulaye Faye? Like, who?
Lubomir Michalik? Like, who?
Kevin Davies! Perennial reject
Gary Speed - best days behind him
Nicholas Anelka - born troublemaker
El Hadji Diouf - born troublemaker
Nope, Allardyce is a master motivator, simple as, and for a man whose managerial skills were reared on the barcoded side of the Trent, it pains me to say it...
but then Djorkaeff, Okocha, Hierro, Campo etc. Players the calibre of which (even if they were pushing retirement) Bolton would never have had before.
that is down to Allardyce's growing reputation, but to be fair he's a chairman (Phil Gartside)that backs him to the hilt, even if the nature of some of the dealings do raise an eyebrow or two.
"backed him to the hilt"!
see Fulham go down than anyone this season
but Lawrie Sanchez is a bigger fool than anyone at Wigan
lawrie sanchez is really fucking shit.
Dave Whelan over that history-raping asset stripper Doughty any day of the week.
That Wigan Warriors with an out of retirement Martin "Chariots" Offiah would stand a better chance of survival in the Premier League?
Also, is Lawrie Sanchez the only Premiership manager to have scored a winning FA Cup Final goal? My dad is adam ant he is, but what about Mark Hughes?
He scored twice in '90 and once in '94, at least. And he won, innit?
as the goal that wins the game. Sanchez versus Liverpool ius a classic example.
scored in a 4-0 win against chelsea, but none of the goals should be called the winner.
he scored twice in the 3-3 draw versus palace.
My playlist is almost complete by the way.
But I see what you're saying. The final goal when one team wins by only one clear goal.
I've not even started mine yet. I can't stop singing Suede songs though.
as I couldn't choose a single song. Having said that, when I get in, I'm sure I will find some beauties that will ruin my ideas of a playlist.
And it gives me the chance to listen to dubstar.
... did he?
