    Confirmed Signing Conor Coady

    Off topic, but….. where does the ‘Osman is a Grass’ hail from? I see it on here all the time but Ive never heard the story behind it! I vaguely recall reading an interview or something with Van der Meyde where he said Neville used to snitch on him to Moyes when he’d been out drinking, but...

    Confirmed Signing Conor Coady

    Surprised Wolves are loaning him out. Always thought he was decent whenever I’ve seen him play. Re. The ‘Kopite background’ - basically, if he does the business for us then I’ve no issue. I was the same when Benitez took over even despite the comments he’d made about us in the past. Hopefully...

    Transfer Rumour Ross Barkley

    I thought he would go on to be a top player and he was brilliant at times for us and overall very good. He’s just never kicked on though and as others have questioned, I’d he all that arsed about football anymore ? It’s a massive NO for me

    Announcement of TV schedule

    I certainly don’t think it makes everything hunky dory mate, merely that I thought there’d come a point where fans would vote with their feet and that hasn’t really happened in general - you are obviously an acception. The PL showed during the initial Covid outbreak that they don’t need fans...

    Confirmed Signing James Tarkowski

    Don’t know why I had it in my head that he van dyked someone 😂. I know I’ve derailed the thread with nostalgia but as I said above I genuinely miss European comps, no matter the standard, different teams different players and trips away with your mates etc. To link the nostalgia to the topic…...

    Takeover bid by Peter Kenyon

    Always puzzled me that he didn’t sign permanently- definitely up to the standard and genuinely seemed to develop an ‘affinity’ with the club. Though I suppose we don’t know his personal situation (family life etc). I agree though, I’d love to see him involved.

    Confirmed Signing James Tarkowski

    I’m sure Rooney tried to lob their keeper from 40 yards at 0-0 on about 60 minutes. Yeah I had the same feeling , although I tried to tried to convince myself that ‘we’d gel’. That had to be the worst transfer window in the history of the sport - hindsight obviously

    Confirmed Signing James Tarkowski

    Yeah prob fleecing Sunderland at that point. I’d take any European competition… conference , whatever. Different teams to play against and obviously the trips. Can’t believe some fans turn their nose up at it

    Confirmed Signing James Tarkowski

    Ruzemberok that was it. Won 1-0 with a scuffed Baines shot when we should have battered them really. Was split who we beat 4-0 and Rodwell scored two worldies and then in the second leg hibbert booted someone up in the air and got sent off?

    Confirmed Signing James Tarkowski

    Europa qualifier… forget who the team was but we scraped through. Yeah I was in the top balcony… massive anticipation when he came on… then, first involvement in the game the ball sprung off his shins and like you say the collective ‘oh no’. Bit like kroldrup at Villa and the ‘sliced’ header...

    Confirmed Signing James Tarkowski

    I can confidently say that he won’t be a ‘he’ll come back to haunt us him, watch lad’ Then again, there’s the Everton That factor so 😂
