    New music festival where you choose the bands

    Have you guys all seen this? Now Triptych is finishing, Tennents have launched a new music venture in Scotland. I've been heavily involved along the way with the branding of it, but I think its an absolutely superb idea (provided loads of ****ty Kooks fans don't get on there). This is the...
  2. Ref Watch .... Carlisle

    Whilst Leeds have been appointed their umpteenth SG referee of the season, the stand-out match of the division has been entrusted to the fast-tracked wunderkind, Anthony Taylor from Wythenshawe, Greater Manchester. In only his second season he has done 10 Championship matches and two last season...

    Arsene Wenger will have just one question on his mind

    As he surveys the wreckage of a promising season that has gone horribly, horribly wrong, Arsene Wenger will have just one question on his mind. What changes need to be made this summer to avoid ever having to go through that again? The first thing everyone connected with the club needs to do is...

    The Gunners

    Just occasionally, maybe once a year at most, there comes a football match so beautiful, so intense, so frantic and so scoop-your-jaw-up-off-the-floor exciting, that it's all you can do not to fall to the ground and openly weep in thanks that you were able to watch it. This was an epic struggle...

    Semi-match report

    I thought I may as well put my thoughts on the game up as I've barely been on since the game. As I mentioned before this match, the form of the home team compared with that of the away team and the relative league standings pointed only one way: Away win. Sure enough, the form book wasn't...

    Liverpool won the battle for fourth place more comfortably than their 1-0 scoreline suggested with a confident, accomplished victory that will send them to London on a high. The fact that this mighty club was fighting for such a lowly league position is a searing indictement on this season's...

    Trouble In Merseyside

    They say that lightning doesn’t strike twice, but with momentum growing at both ends of Stanley Park, it looks like now might be a good time to run for cover. Everton are more than capable of finishing fourth and, at the same time, no-one would be surprised if Liverpool snaffled a sixth European...

    Dirty Leeds

    Not sure its been mentioned on here, but the Football League have agreed to go to arbitration over Dirty Leeds' 15 point deduction. I know there is still a lot of football left to be played this season, but as things stand we'd have the most to lose from this when the Football League back down...

    Hounds of Hell

    I used to get these horrible recurring nightmares when I was a teenager. It was every single evening and it was absolutely terrifying. I’d drift off and be transported to a cold, dark forest where I was being chased by a pack of dogs. The dogs were so real and no matter how fast I ran, I could...

    Spurs Superior To Baffling Blues

    We all chuckled when Jonathan Woodgate claimed that he joined Tottenham in order to have a chance of winning trophies but, appropriately enough, it was the former Middlesbrough centre-back who delivered the long-suffering club their first silverware in nine years at Wembley Stadium. “Scoring...
  11. Are our players as fit as they should be?

    MOTHERWELL gaffer Mark McGhee has promised his hard working squad a mid-season break abroad but not until they've clinched a top-six finish. With their fixture congestion easing McGhee says his men deserve the trip for reaching third place eight games before the split. He said: "When we're no...

    The A-League

    Here is an article from a Queensland Roar fans website I go on now and again. They go into the last game of the regular season (they have playoffs, or 'finals' over there) with 4 teams (out of 8 in the league) level on points at the top of the table. Quite an amazing finish, half of the league...
  13. This Season's Aims

    I feel the majority of this board are wanting promotion again this season. I, for one, am not entirely bothered about going up. This season all I want is the stadium to get the go-ahead and us to build and improve as a side, finishing in a solid position. Let's face it, we won't last in the CCC...
  14. Chalk and Cheese

    Bizarre how we can have played so badly these past two games and yet tonight play so well.....I didn't think Udders were a bad side ..lacked the finishing touch but played quite good football...With Leon back and Morgan up front we looked threatening every time we went forward ..they created so...

    Can't believe McCarthy is up for this ...... McCARTHY SET FOR KOREA CHANGE? Wolves manager Mick McCarthy or former Lyon coach Gerard Houllier are set to be unveiled as the new coach of South Korea, the Korea Football Association announced today. The Taeguk Warriors have been searching for a new...

    The Matt Harrold WTF thread

    As in WTF was that second half display all about ? Average first half and a revelation in the second, other than the finishing, but without doubt the finest 45 minutes he's put in since he joined us. Nice one Matt. More of the same please. I like the taste of humble pie !

    Week 12

    Big big big game for me today. I sit 5th and play the team who are 4th. My hardest game of the season as my last 2 games seeing me play 6th and 7th. Win today and i shouldn't have to bare the relegation decider and could end up finishing in 3rd!
