He looks like the farmer from Babe.
away from being the old road salter in Home Alone.
Nani cost Man Utd £22.4m. Anderson cost £27m.
Stroke o' luck for whoever they're playing next!/"Just when I think I'm out, they pull me back in" Kevin Nolan, 1896
when he was clearly fucked, but then I remembered Nolan is a week or so away from coming back from injury and it all clicked into place.

Arsenal v Southampton, League Cup 3rd Round
Should be a humdinger. Excited at the chance to see Diaby injure himself in real life, plus just how prevalent the Soton cut is these days. Oh, and that World Cup goalie who was decent and Joel Campbell - WIN.
"I know United have spent £150m, I think there’s another two transfer windows of similar amounts of money needed – maybe £100m – before they can even think about winning the title.
There are still key positions in the team that need filling. I think the centre-back position is obviously the key area. Holding midfield or centre midfield needs addressing too.
There were no world-class centre-backs out there [this summer]. I think that’s why in the next two transfer windows, United might still be looking for that world-class defender.
I am certain Chris Smalling will come good and I have full faith in Phil Jones as well. They’ve bought of a lot of foreign players, you don’t get rid of your English spine."
No need to panic then.
seen this kind of thing before.
without looking it up of course. Extra points if you knew who they were playing
I'm guessing 2-1 to Ipswich.
I'm going to be in a corporate box at Ipswich in a few weeks. Might wear a tux
I like Roy but he's such a big four whore.
will all eventually end up at Sunderland. So average.
#TC23 could be the first of many.
I caught extended highlights of the Leicester game last night and I really am going to have to try and watch every United game until January when presumably the fun will stop. I don't think I have ever seen a more top heavy side in the Premiership...ever, it's like a turbo-fuelled Kevin Keegan City. Win or lose they will be incredible to watch. Whatever the price, Real Madrid were nuts to let di Maria go.
dont think that can be coached out of him.
but don't think Evans, Jones or Smalling have a Philipe Albert special in their locker.
While the odd fan is complaining about the results, "worse than Moyes" etc., I'm just glad our games aren't painfully fucking boring this year. Moyesball was unbearable. We've already got enough quality tied down to long term contracts that we'll be back eventually, and we're playing some sexy football at times.
I might as well just buckle in and enjoy the ride, even if it does mean another mid-table finish.
When we need a calm head to lead by example he's running around headless, screaming at everyone for their mistakes and spooning shots into the stands from 40 yards.
Their defending is terrible and their obvious weak point.
Blackett can play for England, Jamaica or Barbados. They did the same for Welbeck for his first cap. Just brought him on for five minutes at the end to tie him down to england duty.
I'm so glad of the warm, safe, nurturing arena that this thread provides.
That everything went dead batshit out there during the international break.
massive game for NCFC against Shrewsbury away
Last week they told him that he had one game to save his job otherwise he was goneburger, now they're blocking him from even talking to a club which would be a huge step up for him
They've got some nutjob Italian there now
I was meaning this tops even his knobbery
That bloke at Leeds, the ones who own UdiWatford, Berlusconi. With Serie A in the pits they've decided to focus their particular brand of corrupt insanity on the Football League, and I for one welcome them with open arms.
It's all going to end in tears, isn't it?
He's going to be a journeyman scumbag like Diouf or Marlon King.
I'm predicting 13 professional clubs and retired at 29. Will be very pleased if we never see him in a West Ham shirt again.
Actual criminals please, not just players you don't like.
No keepers spring to mind.
Now back at Plymouth Argyle with two child killings to his name.
Looking more for criminals who did some time then pottered around the lower leagues for a bit.
Check out Peter Storey's unique rap sheet though: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_professional_sportspeople_convicted_of_crimes#English_leagues
Leyton Orient could welcome back defender Gary Sawyer, who has been sidelined with tendonitis since the win against Aston Villa in the last round.
Goalkeeper Adam Legzdins (finger) and forward Kevin Lisbie (shoulder) remain unavailable through injury.
Sheffield United have no new fitness concerns.
do you reckon said player brings in a box of choccies if they've been of for a bit? What if they have a game abroad? Bring back some foreign sweets for the reserve team?
These prices all seem a bit too long to me given the home sides will all play weakened elevens, and the away sides are all in okay form (i guess, can't be arsed checking).
Southampton to win at Arsenal - 3/1
Boro to win at Liverpool - 6/1
Sheff Weds to win at Man City - 18/1
Forest to win at Spurs - 5/1
Forest beating Spurs must be at least a better than remote possibility?
If West Brom can do it - given they're probably only about a handful of places above them in the current league ladder, and will probably be swapping leagues with them come May - they can probably do it.
p.s. I know nothing about odds
though would probs do win by +1.5 goals thing. assuming soton play strong team and arsenal play the kids (plus diaby, good on him)
that's what we're talking about here: cupsets.
the word 'cupset' again.
So you best hope there are none tonight, because otherwise it's cupset ahoy up in this slab tomorrow
"Worth" throwing a tenner at.
Probably won't happen actually.
Also I know Liverpool have been shit recently and this is the opposite of a cupset but I'd say the 13/20 on them to win, even with a second string side against a decent second tier team is actually pretty generous.
Shame they're going up against invincible Wanyama and co
arabic commentator just went BOOMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM when sanchez scored
like the latino guy in that simpsons scene
well annoying listening to someone that amped-up for every minute of the game, according to my mate
He's a massive, MASSIVE Arsenal fan. Used to talk about Joel Campbell before anyone had heard of him. Loves the guy but has never seen him in a first team game. And being inside he obviously doesn't get to see the Gunners as much as he'd like to.
He's finished his last meal but the stiffs have stopped his privileges there and won't allow one last hurrah watching his beloved Arsenal on American TV. He's been left alone with his laptop though and I've promised to do all I can to find him a link to watch the game. It's his last game, so obviously we're talking HD.
Can anyone help this guy out and post a link?
Oh, and he's in for murdering a few Mexicans - hates the Latin languages with a passion - so please don't post any links with Spanish commentary, something bad might happen in Texas.
"Our back-up back four are DREADFUL."
It's definitely not still_here on Death Row then...
the other teams in Spain must be so bad.
even after having played a game more than anyone else bar Elche
For the 'Thinking Man's Charlie Adam' Award. Going to be a big ceremony this year too.
(Ignore what I said about Liverpool, they're really rubbish aren't they?)
my dad's a Norwich fan and it feels like every time they play a lower league team I get a chance to go on the wind-up
Guess we can look forward to getting pumped in the PL again next year
I've been basically stockholm syndromed into always looking out for your results. Think we're going to some sort of fancy hospitality thing to celebrate the old fellas 50th.
is there hockey on tuesday nights at half 10? (don't answer).
It sounds hilarious.
Liverpool v Boro is gonna be an all nighter. Tenth takers each! Radio 5 are loving this...
I wanted that to go on forever...
big grin on his face.
that annoyed me.
