Cripes can we just send New Castle down now and save everybody involved the pain and embarrassment?

When you say "we" who do you mean ?

And when you say "everybody involved in the pain and embarrassment" who also do you mean ? 

 

New Castle or as i prefer to call them.. Newcastle United are going down, that fate was sealed when the cabbage faced prick steve bruce took over from Rafa. 

steve bruce as crap as he is, is not the problem mike ashley is. The national press will eventually suss it out.

Radio 5 amazing let one Mag sound off, doubt it will get that much publicity

Cripes ! :D

They won it a month ago.   I'll tell you what though: when the season gets played out (and it seems the powers to be are committed to doing just that) the ratings and attendance for Liverpool are

Yeah you have to feel sorry for these multi millionaire footballers who have to go to "work" ( play football) for £150,000 a week. If they don't want to play, fair enough, don't pay them. I'm sur

Hideous injury, nice to read this upbeat update

In this case the "we" and "everybody" means every football fan everywhere regardless of allegiance. When I was chatting w. a friend about the game I used phrases like "the roof fell in" and "it all went sideways" but yesterday there were commentators using worlds like "quit", "gave up" and "disgrace".  That seems a bit harsh IMO and I feel badly for the players and I feel awful for their fans. but... that was a painful performance and I certainly lacked any style or elan and that is on the manager IMO.  As for the rest... yeah, the ultimate responsibility is on the owner.  If Newcastle* get sent down I don't see how he gets the $300M for the team (the figure I've heard tossed around) and you would think the stupid bastard would grasp he's destroying his own asset.  Or maybe, like you seem to speculate, he's betting they coming in fourth from bottom and that's good enough.

Some potentially interesting matches there.  I think there is real hope for a good game w. Liverpool.

Pretty early yet but...

You look at Liverpool's last minute win yesterday and Wolves playing MC hard and maybe scratching out a draw and you come up with a four point swing this weekend.  Could be the league title right here.  I know, I know... but right now Liverpool have that look and feel and MC doesn't.  

EDIT: Well f*ck me.  Make that a 5 point swing.

In better news... over the last two seasons I have been slowly converting a hockey fan to the beautiful game (it translates pretty well actually) and have gotten her to regularly tune in to Premier League mornings (the WWC helped a bit as well).  Last night we were talking football and she told me that after two years she was ready to declare a team.  It would have been easy for her to pick MC or Liverpool or one of the bigger London clubs and fair enough.  Nope.  She's gone for West Ham.  

I was so chuffed I damned near cried.

I don't know but I did tell her about those pies in the green sauce and she was pretty enthusiastic about that so maybe.

A lot of the shops around the Boleyn ground closed when west ham moved to the commonwealth running track... when I went to the ground the pie and mash was one of the high points of horrible trip across london

I've never had pie and mash but the first time I saw it on TV I wanted it.  Just looking at it I knew I'd like it; I REALLY need to get to London for many reasons and that's near the top of the list.  I'd try the eels but I don't have much hope for them - though I do like grilled eel so you never know.

Maybe Arsenals glorious chaos will give us a show on Monday.
