clumsy

  1. Clumsy or sinister ?

    Why do terrorists always leave their documents at the crime scene ?? 9/11 Everything was obliterated,yet a pristine passport was found. United 93 ....nothing remained at the crash site apart from the red bandana. Stade de France suicide bomber's passport was by his body. Lorry attack in France...

    Freddy's strike partner

    It's been briefly discussed in another thread but I thought this deserved a discussion of it's own. So, who is best suited to play alongside Freddy? I see Harris and Benyon too similar to Freddy as the 'fox in the box' style forward. In my opinion there are 2 options. 1. Bilel Mohsni -...

    Question SZ first ever French POTY awards.

    As sadly for them it seems highly unlikely that any of the lads from across the channel with feature in the actual POTY awards this season I thought it only fair to give them there own awards. Its a tough call so here to help you out is our Gael with a quick reminder. "Ladies and Gentlemen...
  4. Xavi Takes Centre Stage in Football Spectacle

    When two teams of the highest calibre collide, it wouldn’t be beyond the realms of possibility that they negate each other and the feature becomes something of an anti-climax. Not when Arsene Wenger and Pep Guardiola are around. No. This was special. Barcelona flew out of the traps as if to...
  5. Shut Up Wenger...

    When Ryan Shawcross trudged off the field in tears, the last thing the lad needed was to be hounded by a sense of indignation from Arsene Wenger and a loud collage of journalists and Arsenal fans alike. So, imagine the disgust when the pitch forks and stakes came out... The challenge itself...

    Leeds Live The Dream

    DID LEEDS GET LUCKY? Absolutely not. This was a fully deserved win by a team who paid for their victory in blood and in sweat and in tears. Leeds United may have spent the last two and a half years in the third flight of English football, but if this result is anything to go by, they're on...

    I Heart Peter Crouch

    I have to confess to a guilty pleasure. I love Peter Crouch. I really do. I don't want to go and choose curtains with him, you understand, or look into civil partnerships or anything like that. No, my affection towards him is more of a paternal love. When fortunes turn against him, it burns me...
  8. Haye Prays For A Giant Killing

    When I was at School, there was a bully who was a freak of nature to everybody else... Primarily because he stood at least a foot taller than everybody else with arms bigger than most peoples legs. One day, he took offence to my football hitting him and pushed me to the ground, So I know a...

    Could JFC play CB.

    Just an idea. I know JFC has played there at various points in his career. He is big and strong, good in the air and fast, great reading of the game. Sounds potentially like a good centre back to me. My only worrys are its a bit of a waste of a good skillful player and also he can be a bit...

    Spain Stunned By Yanks

    USA 2-0 Spain Altidore 25 Dempsey 73 Last week the American football team could have been forgiven for packing their bags in advance of an early exit. Beaten in a tight encounter with Italy and then thrashed to within an inch of their lives by Brazil, their only hope of qualification was to...
  11. GWR and Hooper

    Just back from GWRFC. 2-0 to SUFC, stroll really. Second half looked very comfortable without really looking sharp in front of goal. First half looked very poor up top with Revell and Walker. Thought Furlong looked a bit slow and clumsy but it is far too early to judge anyone really. The...

    Avram Grant

    Avram Grant arrived here at White Hart Lane looking for the win that would set up an unexpected assault on the title, but when he left shortly before midnight, the only thing that had been assaulted was his own reputation. The Chelsea heirachy continue to insist that the Israeli coach is the man...

    The fbm view and ratings - Tranmere

    TRANMERE GO TOP AS SOUTHEND SLIP TO SEVENTH Southend's unbeaten 5 match run came to an end this afternoon as the visitors from the Wirral deservedly ran out winners at The Hall. Sometimes, Southend play well and sometimes they don't. However, on some occasions, credit must be given to the...
  15. Wolves view on Leon Clarke

    Hello, thought you may be interested in a Wolves point of view on Leon Clarke, after your helpful insights on Freddy Eastwood. Leon Clarke came through our academy system and played for us until January ( I think ) when he was sold to Sheffield Wednesday for £250k. Since then I believe he has...
  16. JCR and the Goat

    I know that I am likely to get berated for this but I was aghast that Tilly brought off JCR on saturday. He was the one who, particularly in the second half was causing Barnsley problems. As soon as he went off, we lost our balance. Also, as much as I love the guy, I think the Goat needs a rest...
  17. a few thoughts on this and that

    the teams done really well this season it makes a change to have something to go to roots hall for instead of just a pointless mid table end of season game, atmosphere was really good! a point on the team, the only thing that we lack is some creativity and ideas going forward. eastwood...

    The fbm view and ratings

    There is something about a fixture against Swindon that conjures up special memories for me.  Two of the finest games I have ever seen at the Hall have been against the Robins, a 5-3 victory in the early 80’s and a 3-2  victory in our first season in the old division 2, with Ian Benjamin laying...

    Some Jokes....

    The train was travelling along when a beautiful young woman entered the compartment which was deserted except for a businessman reading his paper. The man peered over his paper and asked "Would you let me shag you for a pound?" "Certainly not!" exclaimed the young woman...
