Re: A happy picture before I go to bed!

And a happy picture to start my day off. I'm smiling now, thinking of those great times. I miss them (plus I was a hell of a lot younger then!).

Re: Rant about Carragher and Kisnorbo

Big Jack used to stand on the opposition keepers foot at corners! "Booga cudnae jump then"!!!! :lol: That's true, but it was slightly more subtle than what they do to each other today. This blatant "arms around, grab the shirt" tactic at corners and free kicks ought to be penalised and then it woul...

Rant about Carragher and Kisnorbo

For several years now, every time I watch a Liverpool game I get really pissed off seeing Carragher leaning into/falling all over his opponent, arms around him, hands full of his opponents shirt, holding them down etc etc, and never getting called for a foul by the referee. Not to mention when he ne...

Re: o/t Smart phone

My current mobile contract has just expired. Time for an upgrade. I've rejected the idea of a smart phone in the past but am now thinking of getting one. Anyone recommend one or say that one should definitely be avoided? Cheers My daughter loves her Iphone. My wife hates her Samsung Vibrant. I have...

Re: To everyone pm-ing me about the ITV docu on now.

Thanks again for all the love....I just had a weird but wonderful moment I want to share. I was wondering if life was really worth it. When I've been laid off in two job redundancies this year and nobody wants to hire an old twot like me, it seems...wife and son pished off with me as I'm not earnin...

Re: O/T Joey Barton

If that was ever given as a penalty then it would be a crime against football. going down under such minimal if any contact would be embarrassing to any male playing the game. The fact that Barton went down abit easily aswell is embarrassing. But the ref in this occassion is following the letter of...

Re: Nostalgia

I wish we could get that back Leon - at least for home games. The sea of scarves on the Kop was a joy to behold from the Lowfields. At Wembley that afternoon, it was incredible to see. :thup: And that was one of the few games in that period, where I never saw any trouble after the match. Ended up s...

Re: Andy obrein

I agree,
Anyone who saw the game yesterday should be appalled by the team's performance in general, and OBrein's in particular.
No blame on the keeper. It would have been 5 without a couple of exceptional saves.

Re: Are we screwed? Footbal Gov.Report

Surly the whole idea of the governance report is not to 'screw' over clubs but to get to the bottom of offshore ownership and clean up club ownership for the sake of and protection of the clubs themseleves. While Bates' dealings are dodgy I am fairly sure we are not the murkiest club in the footbal...

Re: Johnny Giles Coming To Town

if you were to compare him to a modern player would he be similar to scholes who despite being scum was class If you were comparing him to a current player I'd say he was more like Fabregas than Scholes. Giles had that elegance about him that you usually associate with a top class Spanish or Italia...

Re: Johnny Giles Coming To Town

Gilesy was my favourite player of the whole Revie era. Arguably the best footballer we've ever had at the club...tho I never saw John Charles play. Yeah, mine too (along with Norman Hunter). What I liked about Giles was his incredible skill and vision, mixed in with a little bit of nastiness. Oh to...

Johnny Giles Coming To Town

I saw this announcement and it got me thinking about all the great times I had watching this man play. Then I remembered an incident, but now I'm not sure if this really happened or my memory :? is playing tricks on me. (It really does suck getting old!) So if any of you 'older gentlemen/ladies' rem...

Could be finishing with 9 men a few games this season then. :(

If Smith does sign it may not be for midfield.

Oh good. A striker who can't score!
