See i'm not so sure mate.  The football landscape has changed and money doesn't have the influence it once did.  Clubs don't necessarily have to sell anymore.  Money will only get you so far, building a group that want to play for each other and work well together isn't easy to find and certainly isn't something you can just go and buy.  which is wonderful for the game and exactly what it needed.

I think the Spuds will be there or thereabouts for a while.  IMO

Is that the Hovis ad music I hear in the background? Christ on a bike, Yant. Will you have word with yourself? Money doesn't have the influence it once did??? What parallel universe are you living in?

2 more seasons max for Poch at Spurs.

Merely a stepping stone for bigger things.

That's what Spurs are, a rung on the ladder.

An absolutely horrendous one at that.

Lol - what was that I was saying about people being gullible? Cos that football lot always stick by their words. Renowned for it.

Just for you Yant, I read his comments. He has managed to crowbar in the "massive club", tick, "potential", tick. Lol
I'm sure he goes on to talk about world peace and his love of the literary works of Nabokov but I am taking a stab in the dark here and going to say that it was the usual page-filler bollocks.
I'm also wildly guessing that if Barca offered him a job tomorrow he'd be on the next Easy Jet out of Gatwick quicker than you could say "what contract?"

And any fucking cunt who uses the word "massive" - unless it's David Attenborough musing about the size of the Blue Whale. We will allow that. Not Thierry Henry saying "wow" and nothing else for his entire shift on Sky Sports. Literally nothing else. Just "wow".

No. I don't read any comments by any manager and/or player because they are aimed at gormless fucking idiots who hang on their every word. The same cunts who turn up at Stoke on Transfer Deadline Day in full kit, hoping that the bog-standard plodder driving through the gates in his 200k jammer might just sign for them, so they can pay him 80k a week to play alongside Glenn Whelan. The same cunts who buy the Daily Mirror and regurgitate to their equally brainwashed colleagues in work that Jurgen Klopp says that the Liverpool fans can play a big part in their next game, as he talks EXCLUSIVELY to chief sport reporter Harry Harris, who has just rehashed an old interview he did with some other cunt of other. The same cunts who talk about football stats like they actually mean anything. The same cunts who actually listen to what Jamie Carragher has to say, instead of walking around the house making animal noises. The same cunts who don't look at Gary Lineker's coupon and wonder how long he has left or why a grown man is sporting a goatee.

I actually enjoy this time of year as a Leeds' fan because another season of abject, abysmal football is coming to a close. A team full of numpties, managed by a numpty, hired by a fucking coke-addled lunatic who has spent more in compo to unfairly- dismissed staff than he has on players' fees. I don't need to worry about the play-offs, or cup finals, or qualifying for Europe, none of that nonsense. I don't even have the last day win to escape relegation stuff. Nope, just another mid-table finish to a season that was over in October.

I will be cheering on Millwall in the League One play-offs so they can come up again and we can get back to what we do best: vitriolic hatred and wanton violence.

Love this part of the season...  Nausee scours the divisions for who he wants relegated cos they chanted against Leeds 20 years ago or issued the coup de grace ....

He runs out of hatred. Lol.

Lol - I'm over all that, Tom. I now read all the red-tops everyday and watch Sky Sports News for hours on end. I think the Premiership is the bestest in the world and Thierry Henry offers a clever, insightful and yes, sometimes controversial input into the world of football punditry.
I also believe that children are the future, if we teach them well and let them lead the way. Perhaps show them all the beauty they possess inside. Give them a sense of pride, y'know.

As much as I admire Atleti it's difficult to like Simeone. Calling for a free/yellow card for every tackle.

Stringer Bell will be ringing in a few more, I'd say.

I watched London Has Fallen on the train home last night. 1/10 worst fucking film i have seen since Olympus has fallen. It was so effortlessly racist and terrible plot/acting effects all round

Strudders will love it

I heard Bastille Day would give it a run for its money.

Footy fans were (and still are) treated like scum in the 70s and 80s and not undeserved either, considering the aggro at matches. And the SYP had a bit of previous with the miners. Throw in a clueless idiot like Duckenfield and a load of pissed up fans arriving late for a match (which would be the norm) and you've a recipe for what happened. As Dermo pointed out, it was on the cards for years, especially at Hillsborough. Leeds were there two years' previously and also got the Leppings Lane while Coventry got the larger Kop (I think this may be to do with geography - easier to give those ends for travelling fans). By all accounts it was a similar situation: ironically the only thing that stopped a similar disaster then was the Leeds' fans rep at the time, which was pretty bad (Telford Utd refused to play us at their place in the 3rd round and it had to be moved): they were being stopped and searched etc at regular intervals which staggered the arrivals at the gate.
How it hadn't happened before is incredible.

And just a note that The Currant Bun is still the best selling newspaper in the UK.

If Hannu likes it that's normally reason enough to give it a swerve.

There's no getting away from it, i'm gutted Ed.  But there you go.  It is what it is.  Still a hell of an achievement where we have got to and it's been a pleasure following a great club like Spurs throughout the season, playing great football.  What's more pleasing is that we have a group of players that are going to challenge now for a few years and hopefully a manager that will stick around.

But i'm a little distracted today by other stuff so sorry if i'm not here to defend myself.  But just in case i'm not around here's a general *fuck you* that you can use.  Hope that helps.

Isn't football wonderful? Forever duping gullible eejits like us into thinking "yeah, this is that start of something".  And then your manager does one somewhere or other and half your squad is sold.

Spurs had their chance and fucked it. I would've preferred them to win it than plucky little Leicester and all that bollocks. Fuck Leicester.

Are Liverpool playing at home this weekend? Dear Christ there will be an horrific display of banners on the Kop - even more than usual.
Hopefully as a club they can now turn their attention to the murder of 39 Juventus fans which they brushed under the carpet.

The Game of Thrones book (first one) is easily one of the worst I've ever read. A poor man's Lord Of The Rings.
Badly written to a laughable extent.

And no, I don't watch the series either.

I haven't seen Entourage. Or Sex and The City. Or PS I Love You. And I never will. However, having read the blurb for Entourage it sounds fucking awful. Quite amazing that anyone would actually like it. But then again I haven't sat through it so maybe iI've missed a gem. I'm gonna go with my gut on this one and never ever watch it.

Always good to see the lesser clubs in an FA Cup final. You would get sick of the big clubs winning it all the time.
That's the beauty of the Cup.
