yeah,

they are alright really, but in the one experience I've had with young newly qualified reds it's a case of 'get on with it'.

I guess they don't have the resources for mentoring

Looks like we've done our team photo with the Wiltshire air ambulance and putting them as back of kit shirt sponsor. Nice touch for a good cause.

It's a great pint and we never lose when I find it on an away day. Smiley

You be careful, mate of mine moved down there and in 3 years has turned into some manner of sycophantic Nigel Farage/Waxy-Lemon fan boy!

Eric Cantona. So much more than just football.

I take it all back: reports that several Premier League clubs are backing the idea of increasing solidarity payments to Football League clubs as a way of bridging the gap between the divisions:

I quite like it when ex-players come out and just say what they think but I'd suggest Michael Owen cancel any plans he may have for a relaxing city break in the Northeast:

Especially enjoyed:
"This kind of blind delusion is especially true of Newcastle United - which, as I reach for the nearest tin hat, is only a big club in the sense that it has a lot of fans and a big stadium."

TBF they fucking hate him up there already and have done so since he rolled up and made very little effort for them.

They already hate him.

He's not wrong either. Even we've won more trophies than they have in the last 50 years.

Now he's got into a twitter spat with Shearer:

"Not sure you are as loyal to Newcastle as you make out mate. I distinctly remember you being inches away from signing for Liverpool after Sir Bobby Robson put you on the bench. You tried everything to get out."
