Ouch! 13.3? Hmmm... gets you Negredo! ESPN are speculating his calf injury will keep him out for the whole Christmas & New Year period. Not too bad if you've got him @19/20, but 13 is tricky, maybe try to beef up the midfield to 5? And ride it out? Or take the hit and back Negredo. Best wait to see what the damage is.
Well done, Kipper, keep it up, I couldn't possibly have done as good a job as you at showing people just what a piece of work you are, you must think everyone here is as thick as you!
So, out of all the allegations against you, you only dispute being a Celtic supporter, and being sick, (apart from in the head), the rest you own up to.
PS: My avatar pic is of you, I got it from your Facebook page!
Where to start .... there are NO Graingers in Urunga, where my daughter DOES NOT live, and no-one ever said she did, more bullshyte from you.
There are NO Graingers in the Urunga phone book, none on the electoral roll, and none paying rates, even more bullshyte from you.
If you think you, or anyone else can "find" me, try it!
Maybe I should find you, it costs $500 from any one of a number of closed hacking sites I belong to, they trace your IP address from Yahoo, get the name of your ISP, then hack them for your name, address, and phone number.
Are you worth $500?
Maybe you should have stuck to your pretend ignoring, be careful what you wish for.
No, you don't get their points unless they get subbed in/ They get subbed in if a player in your main XI in any position does not play any part. They are subbed in in the order that they appear in your bench preference BUT only as long as it does not result in an illegal team formation (eg, 5 defenders or 2 keepers).
"PS. I am not Jack...But Jack is clearly a bright lad"
...pure Kipper...right down to the sweaty socks...I do hope that doesn't offend Drummer...but then again...it's not directed at him...so he won't care.....
...still looking forward to you "Eddy" having a debate with "Jack" on Nelson Mandela...he's very forthright on his opinion....which is diametrically opposed to yours....and yet you're already being really ambiguous....
...bring it on...Jack and Eddy...clash of the Titans on views of Mandela...
What was this post in response to....you didn't answer that bit..?
..selective as always...Kipperfisherroy....7***
...ohhh, and I guess you'll deny mailing Drummer the link to this place...calling for backup...because you can't beat a little woman into submission...not even with all the sock puppets at your disposal...
...you little looser...
....and it's in the hand of BT for the moment.....:)
Welbeck takes a heck of a lot of stick, even from Utd fans... Important to remember he's (surprisingly) only just turned 23! He's had injuries, not had a good run in the side, been all-too-often played wide left! We all saw how Ramsey - 23 on Boxing Day - went from a poor holding midfielder last season, to something approaching genius this season... maybe, just maybe Danny Welbeck is another that has suddenly become a much better player than we all thought possible? The next few games will tell us more, I'm giving him a chance, up top with Rooney, let's see what he can really do. With Kun out for at least a month, the goals at Man City, Chelsea, Everton been spread around everyone, worth the risk for Week 17, at least.
I posted this before, but Yahoo has a smart editor and decided not to publish it.
Although I dislike AVB and his 'style', he still has the best win percentage of virtually all the managers we've had. And irrespective of the two big losses, he has still got us to a reasonable points total - and achieved the highest in the club's history in the previous season. Could he have turned the 2nd half of the season and actually achieved 4th? Not sure, but giving any manager a season and a bit, IMO just isn't enough to see what they can do. Levy made the gamble when he sacked 'arry and appointed AVB - it does not say much for his and the board's decision making to have had so many managers anyway - and to then not stand by the latest decision that he made. He was under no pressure to sack 'arry.
Personally, I don't think AVB would have turned it around - but my crystal ball is no clearer than anyone else's - and to me the man should have at least been given the chance.
I don't know why some people are shocked.
They beat Newcastle 4-0, Utd, 4-1, Spurs 6-0
They have a massive and very expensive squad that had an extra day rest in between games.
We were always going to be the underdogs for this one.
Personally the score in my mind was wrong. We had offside goals called against us when they weren't offside and a penalty shout that was ignored. Milner's penalty was a joke.
Forget this game. Chelsea is the big test now. We NEED this to restore the points gap. Liverpool have got a Cardiff team on the slide this weekend, at home.
As usual John, you have not answered my question. I agree that there are people you can dislike but respect, Fergie is one for me, but you said you disliked him AND didn't think he would turn it around and my point was - if you didn't like him and didn't think he would make a success of it then why would you give him even more time to make an even bigger mess of it? Its just not a sensible thought process other than for the sake of being "fair". Being "fair" would probably mean losing more games and wasting even more time and money. Sensible.
And 1) Of course any new manager is going to make changes. What, you would prefer we have a new manager that follows exactly what the previous failed manager did? That makes sense. Yes shame about the £100 mill but unless ALL of the players we bought with it fail, which is very unlikely, it has not all been wasted. As for giving AVB time to see if those new players worked out, well, he wasn't playing them all the time was he and even when he did he played them out of position so you would never have known that.
2) Everybody has a different view of what success looks like and we have not achieved what, by most peoples standard, could be regarded as success with any manager. Only Arry did what many think was a good job. My point was that a new manager very often has an initial good run, bringing in new ideas and trying new things - think Di Mateo at Chelsea. I am not over optimistic either but I do know that IMO AVB was never going to work so anybody new has one over on him straight away.
You said with conviction that we WOULD be taking a step back. I asked how you knew that and you have failed to answer with anything other than more empty words. Only time will tell if we have or not unless you have a crystal ball.
Just some more questions we need to know the answer to..
And looking at the behaviour and accusations of certain people, I thought I would keep it light hearted today. One or two people might need to look up the term 'light hearted'

I hope Wenger will get Costa or Michu in January. We are not far from having a squad that has a serious chance of competing for titles (that is not to say that the current squad can't win a trophy) but we need most of all a better striker. This title race will likely come down to a few points between 1st and 2nd and a striker who is more clinical can make that difference.
Using common sense and deductive reasonings to logically conclude that we cannot win the league this year is NOT lazy, it is sound critical thinking that separates us from every other life form on the planet of which we were born to use. It is CERTAIN that the league will end after the 38th game is played by each and every EPL team and when that day comes we can only hope arsenal will be in the top four finishing places, that however IS an uncertainty!
