Can't say I remember you either Conman and I've been posting on here since 2008.
Don't post much on here myself these days - and this "new look" format defo gets a thumbs down from me :-( If it ain't broke don't fix it - but Yahoo do love tinkering with things when they don't need to.

Don't get to that many away games - but do get to every PL home game though :-)
This season I've only been to Manchester City and West Brom (my daughter is at uni in Birmingham so I stay with her). Went to Villa last season but as the game was on Boxing Day this season we decided to give it a miss. Will try to get to a couple more away games this season if I can as a number of my friends travel to every away game too - I met up with a few of them this afternoon.

We may have Ade back for the Newcastle game - Togo lost to Burkhina Faso in the ACN QF this evening.
Defoe's injury could actually be a blessing in disguise - I heard he's damaged a metatarsal so could be facing 6 weeks on the sidelines. Knowing he could be the sole out-and-out striker available may help Ade concentrate his mind and thus up his game - he simply doesn't play well alongside Defoe.
Have to say I'm very impressed thus far with Holtby - he was a real livewire when he came on today and was unlucky not to have got a goal in the 2nd half.
Was up at The Hawthorns today and it was great to see the team acknowledging the away support at the end of the game - Benny gave his shirt to somebody sitting at the front, though I couldn't see who. Nice gesture.

Delighted that our lads delivered what I asked Santa for! 9pts from 3 games to take us in to 3rd place and start of 2013 with a bang.
Not only that, but to top off a brilliant New Year's Day the Goons could only draw at St Mary's - and but for an own goal by the Saints were lucky to get their 1pt, if reports of their game are to be believed.
Life is currently good in the blue half of North London :-)
Happy New Year folks.

I really can't see us David Moyes allowing Baines to go this coming window, and I'm sceptical about us having any chance of signing either/both Llorente & Moutinho, though I'm happy to be proved wrong naturally.
More likely are potential short-term loan signings - though who they might be is anyone's guess.
Of far more concern is the rumour about Benny going, if those doing the rounds have any traction - though naturally I sincerely hope they're total cr@p.

"We'll sing what we want, we'll sing what we want, we're Tottenham Hotspur, we'll sing what we want".
Believe you me John, at WHL and at City last weekend we were pretty vocal in response to this whole furore. Without a doubt it's made us all the more determined not to let him, Baddiel or anyone else stop us using the Yid word (I will not cop out by saying Y-word!).
I have to say I find Baddiel to be somewhat of a hypocrite considering he castigates us while supporting a team whose fans regularly make hissing noises when they play us. Being part Jewish myself I have nothing against the word, except when it's used in an offensive manner - which clearly is not the case when we chant it.
The Met Police have said the won't arrest or prosecute anyone using it. Despite Herbert's threat to make a complaint if we continue to use it after 20 November, I'd like to see how the Police would cope if they were to arrest upwards of 30,000 fans at WHL.

The dearth of quality players able to be called upon to play of England is sad to see.
Seems like club before country prevails in today's mercenary world of football.
Shame the FA can't go down the route of rugby and cricket and have players on a central contract thus ensuring they're available for selection. But that's a can of worms I doubt anyone would want to open ...

Definitely not dreaming Sledge :-D
Cracking win at OT, despite the poor 2nd half performance. The Mancs often win despite playing badly but I'll take all 3 points at OT all day long however we play.
Another Vertonghen goal - I reckon he'll be our Player of the Season. He really is a cracking player. Glad to see Dempsey opening his account too.
COYS - let's hope this is the kickstart to the season we need to maintain our push for CL footie.

Give the guy a break this week please - his mother died a couple of days ago and being Jewish he and his family are now in a 7-day period of mourning for her.

With you all the way Rambr0. I'm going to be a fully-fledged Bayern Munich supporter tomorrow night - take a look at my avatar ;-)
Altogether now "Ein Bayern München, gibt es nur ein Bayern München, ein Bayern München, gibt es nur ein Bayern München".

Big shame - I was hoping he'd stay and keep Liverpoo languishing in mid-table mediocrity.
I reckon they'll look at Lambert, Rogers, Martinez or Poyet (who might be able to handle Suarez better) or maybe abroad, though they're pi$$ing in the wind if they think they might attract Guardiola or Mourinho.
However, I hear that Benitez is currently out of work ... ;-)

There you go, still talking down to me like I'm a stupid schoolgirl. Par for the course with you it seems.
You can argue it's "easily the most logical, commen sense & rationale decision to make" until you're blue in the face. I just don't happen to agree with you as I've said.
So answer me this SB - if 'Arry had gone all out for the 2nd goal but Villa had gone on to win the game instead would you still say it was the best plan of action? Or would you have condemned him for it and complained he'd lost us at least the 1pt we had while it remained 1-1?
Losing at Villa would have meant we'd have had no choice but to go all out for a win v Fulham on Sunday, with the dangerous consequences that could have had. Lots more pressure on us for a start and it could have backfired big time and seen us either lose or draw. How much more gutting would that have been if the Goons had only drawn at West Brom?

"sometimes people just dont understand simple things no matter how hard u explain. or they dont want to see it so they can stick to their poor illogical answer.
u just have to feel sorry for thos people ed"
Don’t insult my intelligence SB. I just don’t happen to subscribe to your opinion of the Villa game. And that's just what it is - your opinion so there's no reason to be so condescending. We all get it (and probably the whole world does too) that you think 'Arry should have gone all out for a win because you've repeated it ad nauseam. I don't happen to agree with you, but that's my opinion and one to which I'm entitled as much as you are yours.
At Villa Park last week it was obvious Villa had decided to park the bus and settle for the point, but I don't recall hearing anyone around me question why we didn't go for the win. Would you say they don't understand either? As we've seen a few times this season, it's difficult to break down a determined and stubborn defence with 11 men on the pitch let alone 10.
How many times have you been to a game at WHL this season SB? Were you there yesterday? It's not always easy to gauge the mood of the crowd when you're listening on the radio or watching on TV. Yesterday the crowd was behind the team. I've only missed 1 home PL game this season so maybe I'm better able to comment than you - but of course that's just my opinion; don’t let that get in the way of things ;-)

1) Scott Parker & Emanuel Adebayor – without either of them I don’t think we’d have even got 4th place
2) Kyle Walker
3) Losing to the Goons at the Library – the belief went and started the rot that allowed our 10pt lead to slip away
4) Either of Walker’s goals v the Goons and Blackburn
5) 4-0 v Liverpool
6) 5-0 v Newcastle
7) Hearing that the new stadium would be built at WHL
8) Seeing the sheer joy on Modric’s face when he scored v Liverpool
9) To get back to playing the attractive attacking football that had all the pundits raving about us earlier in the season
10) To beat Manure - home or away

Thanks for your earlier apology SB, but when you said "also its highly unlikely this pt gained will have any bearing on where we finish" surely that's admitting the point gained isn't useful?
I really don't know what the 7 out of 9 or 8 out of 9 is about and TBH I have neither the time nor inclination to trawl through all the posts on this thread to find out about it.
As far as I'm concerned, although it frustrated the hell out of me at the game on Sunday watching us unable to break down Villa for that elusive winning goal, I'd far rather the point we got than have come away with nothing. Not having it would mean we absolutely have to win on Sunday and hope the Goons lose, rather than the additional options we now have.
- Kentish Maid Kentish Maid May 11, 2012 18:02 Flag
"also its highly unlikely this pt gained will have any bearing on where we finish" and "there is no way this pt will have any effect on whether we finish above or below newcastle".
Sorry SB but that's a load of bollox. The only way that point won't count is if we lose and Newcastle win.
As long as the Goons don't win on Sunday, if we win and they draw, or we draw and they lose by more than 2 goals then we get 3rd (and the Newcastle result will only then matter to the Goons); if we lose and Newcastle draw we get 4th.
So that 1pt MATTERS VERY MUCH! How many on here would be howling with fury if we missed out on 3rd or 4th by that same 1pt?
OK, we should have secured all 3 points on Sunday against a poor Villa team, but we didn't. Everyone can debate the rights and wrongs of what 'Arry did or didn't do until they're blue in the face but doing so will make fcuk all difference to our points total as it stands today - which is one more than we had before the game last Sunday.
I don't like it any more than the rest of you that we have to rely on other teams' results on the final day of the season, but I fervently hope I'll be shouting for joy at WHL when the fat lady sings on Sunday afternoon.
