"You're a cunt!"
Newcastlol - hard done by
Apparently not a penalty or a red card.
It's the Sunderland game i'm worried about
he got the faintest of touches on the ball whilst completely taking out the man
but the red was super harsh, it was a genuine tackle - nothing cynical about it at all
It's Rrrob Stiles. I'm sure he just does it so he's on everyone's tv screen a bit longer. Still as a Sunderland fan I can't complain
however my flatmate disagrees.
it looks awful
same old city.
for my sins
but you need some killer instinct
i'm hoping for 3-2 ($)
City are fucking awful
What's Hughes doing in training? certainly not organising the defence.
Dunne has regressed to where he was 3 years ago.
just thinking out loud
as a neutral I have been far more impressed with Newcastle in this game
but MCFC are clearly the better side in terms of quality - they just lack any kind of drive or physical presence and they're more than prone to switching off
oh well - a fairly entertaining draw
I was impressed with newcastle's resilience
yes it was a good way to spend a couple of hours on a cold and rainy Monday night in October
I can't stand Joe Kinnear though
I'd like to see him do well, he will inevitably be replaced with the keegan/shearer dream team or a more glamorous manager but just the fact that Joe Kinnear is the manager of Newcastle is still brilliant.
I wouldn't want him in charge of my team though.
but Newcastle winning fucks over Spurs just that little bit more :-D
on their game they are spectacular, but if things aren't quite going their way then it all falls apart. It's a razor's edge between the pathetic and the sublime, and most of the time nowadays we seem to be dropping into the former category. It doesn't help that EVERYONE now knows how to play against us - a bit of muscle, plenty of closing down and we're fuckoed. In another country's league we'd be amazing. In a league full of bovver boys and high tempo beefcakes we're pretty hopeless
Oh yeah, and the less said about our defence, the better. Schoolboy stuff
Roll on January
Hamann should be pensioned off to the knackers yard now.
Joey Barton? Maybe...
but his performances have slowly gotten worse and worse. We definitely need more steel all over the pitch, there's just no balance to the team at the moment
and yes, Hamaan is an ancient motherfucker. Good footballing mind, but the body is unwilling
you've got a Kazillion pounds - who do you want?
no superstars please, just some up and coming talent from somewhere. I'd like to say "premiership experience" for the above reasons, but i can't really think of anybody who would fit the bill
Tough time for City at the moment though. Despite being the same team of wimps and fluffers (with a new £30 mill wimp/fluffer) we're now a scalp for every team we play against. So yes, ANYBODY would do. We're fairly short of options in most areas
i fucking hate you
Then Ireland scored. That'll teach me to be optimistic about the Toon. Oh well, it could be worse. We could be Spurs.
him and Butt in the middle of the park is pretty no-nonsense
who have you got next?
but I'd have Guthrie over Butt every day of the week.
It was half rugby tackle, half gay embrace.
