  1. Not overly so, says he has a decent relationship but wants to play more and if it means a loan, then he is up for it. sometimes we tend to be a little hard on young players if they have a poor game but if he cracks on, whoever is here when he gets back may want to include him in squad... still has a way to go and experience will do him good. If he can't deal with Scottish forwards, then he may not be as far along as we hope, but next year or two should see if he is going to make it and I think he will not be found wanting.
  2. I know it is still a bit early for the pantomime season (or maybe not considering Watmore's miss) but "Oh no it won't" 🙂
  3. Just watching highlights of Bodo v Roma.. what a night for those lads.. it is results like that which makes being a supporter of a "little" team worthwhile.. in 50 years time, they can say "I was there when"... good for them
  4. Can just imagine how it might have been if Harold Godwinson had won the Battle of Hastings and decided to make Gateshead his new capital.. No more corgis, all the aristos would have whippets and the Queen would have a ciggie in her mouth, Curlers in her hair and a fur coat (but no ....), stottie cakes would be served as the main course at all the banquets and Christopher Robin would be Poet Laureate.. only snag is national anthem would be something by Jimmy Nail 😞
  5. They do.. its spoken by everyone north of Watford.. distinctly remember Shearer on about his Christmas turkey being bootiful 🙂
  6. wonder if Blanco has ever been mistaken for an Irishman 🙂
  7. When I used to go to away matches on a regular basis, one of the funniest things was the looks of confusion on home fans faces when they started to chant "We hate the Geordies" and our lot joined in
  8. With regard to pronunciation SD, it has reached the stage where we are so mixed that there are no real standard pronunciations in a lot of cases, wife came over here in the eighties and she was amazed by the variations of accent in the country and often in the same town or even the same family (apparently I am not as cultured as my sister). The so-called standard English that was taught in schools in the past is understandable to most but there is no consistency to pronunciations in reality and word meanings change very quickly. I am old enough to remember when being wicked, filthy and bad wer
  9. Very enjoyable game after we settled into it.. bit ropey at start, but after first few minutes, it was a case of how many are we going to win by rather than can we win and we really should have been out of sight by half time. A few poor decisions with regards to shooting instead of passing and vice versa but on the whole, a decent performance. Barnsley unrecognisable from last year and could be in real trouble if they can't sort things out quickly but fair play to them, still tried to play football rather than spoiling. Solid display from Peltier, good midfield linking with Matt and Mart and
  10. if Eddie Howe couldn't keep Bournemouth up, what makes their fans think he will do better at a team with much less ability, their weakness is still at the back and they need an organiser for their defence.. still can't understand why the Capsignal hasn't lit up the sky..... 🙂
  11. I'm glad the puns have finished.. I was beginning to flounder On a serious note, does anybody else feel that in January we should look to find a ball-winner in midfield to feed Tav/Martin/wingbacks. May be a false impression but we are picking up bookings and injuries through players making tackles at inopportune times through bad timing or rashness
  12. skating on thin ice .. I'll be found out one of these dace.. think I keep going just for the halibut
  13. salmon should stop these awful puns before I fall off my perch
  14. nearly had him till he misheard someone talking about grouse shooting 🙂
  15. seem to remember that the consensus was that he was a permacrock and not someone that could be relied on, but good luck to the lad (except against us)
  16. last I heard he was doing well and very likely to step up to U23's sooner rather than later, but early days yet
  17. Payero, fitness and money 🙂
  18. Local Cup Draw Marske/Gateshead v Altrincham Hartlepool v Wycombe Harrogate v Marine/Wrexham Sunlun v Mansfield York/Morpeth v Kettering/Buxton games in three weeks
  19. Sounds like it got a bit fractious at Glentoran. Can see that lad being suspended for a while
  20. Now if you'd said that they did the work on "Canyons of Your Mind", I would have found that more believable ...
  21. Shush... they still think I'm dead 🙂
  22. Definitely an experience... think there is a little more attention to Health and Safety since the well-publicised accident. Very lucky that copious amounts of beer were close by to put him out. Read somewhere that he was one of Bowie's inspirations, so in his own way, a bit of a pioneer
  23. Birthplace of Arthur Brown... Bringer of Fire 🙂
