Re: The generic transfer thread

Disagree. You can buy a player for £50m, he turns out to be rubbish, you let him go for £25m. That isn't a good signing. For me that's just a bad outcome, not necessarily a bad signing. If that £50m player was the best young centre back around, potentially worth £75m, and your side was crying out f...

Re: CONFIMRED - John Swift

Scored a cracking goal in that game and took a decent penalty in the shootout as well from what I remember.

Re: CONFIMRED - John Swift

throw the famous Pirlo Panenka loss into that against Italy. I remember watching us lose a league cup tie away to Stoke on pens, Leroy Lita cleared the crossbar by 1km. That was awful. He ran up to the ball like duck with diarrhea. I think that was the only game I saw Dave Mooney play for us and he...

Re: Sunderland Crap

I've been to Sunderland twice. First time (a 2-0 loss) I was spat at and had stones thrown at me on the way back to the car. The second time (a 2-1 win), a full 8 hours after the match I was threatened by some Sunderland fans at a petrol station on the he A19 because "you may have beat us on th...

Re: Summer Ins and Outs

It's a similar story to 2006 where players like Jonny Hayes were left behind by the rapid strides forward made by the first team. He's the perfect example really, drops down the leagues but is now at his peak and could be playing Champions League football next season. Being released isn't the end of...

24. Stadium of Light, Sunderland The Stadium of Light, home to the infamous Weirside Whine, the sound of thousands of over expectant home fans sucking the life out their team although in the Championship, the Weirside Whine is dampened by the sound of 20,000 empty seats.

FourFourTwo is just an unashamedly piss poor rag.

Who shall we put on the cover this month? Messi, Ronaldo or Messi and Ronaldo?

Re: The Academy/Development squads watch thread 2015//16

Kuhl never had an "attitude problem". The only thing he said that he'd been ravaged by injuries and became somewhat disillusioned with the game at times even at one stage contemplating giving it up completely to pursue other career interests. This sounds much more plausible than him trans...

Re: Mubarak Wakaso

Nice highlights reel where the clips mostly cut out before we see the cross spooned into the car park and some nice "forward's" tackles thrown in for the giggles. Reminds me of Michael Gilkes and there can be no higher praise than that.

He's more a winger/attacking midfielder isn't he?

Re: The 2017/18 season preview/expectation and build up thread

Far too early to speculate but my expectation at this stage is top half. That may change depending on who comes and goes and how the other 23 clubs shape up.
