Re: Football

Not a good season for me, everything won by Man U scum (again) and the mighty Leeds failing to win promotion (again) sad

Still, come on Barca and Everton in the finals smile

Re: Football

I am visiting most home games of FC Dordrecht, so I am very excited that after being last during this winter break, we ended 8th in the competition, won 10 games in a row and are playing Roda JC tonight for the play offs.. Roda has a budget of

Re: Football

Oh now your asking last day of the season in Scotland on Sunday its a bank holiday weekend and Rangers have to win the final game to win the league.

We have been terrible all season the club is in financial trouble and we might just end up winning the double of League and Cup. Kommah !

+1 for Leo wink


in order of importance for me:

1. Sunderland staying up (yes, I support Sunderland)

2. newcastle going down

I've been to the Sunderland - Newcastle game last October, the first win of Sunderland over Newcastle for 28 years or something like that, great atmosphere at the Stadium of Light and what a mighty important three points

Re: Football

@ Starborough: good luck, tonight!

only a budget of 2 million, that's indeed very small..

Re: Football

just out of curiosity, how does someone from rotterdam end up supporting sunderland? smile

two mates, also Dutch, were supporting Chelsea and Arsenal, through them I became interested in English football

they said: "you should choose a club", but I didn't want to choose, I thought that was lame, you don't choose a club, that's something for fate to decide

the following year, in 2000, I was working for an English company and they gave a big party, I was getting pretty drunk over there and after ordering another wodka the bartender said to me: "you look like Kevin Phillips from Sunderland"

"yeah, whatever," and I wandered off, but I suddenly realised that this must be the sign, the English club I've been waiting for, but I didn't know what club he was talking about, so I went back to the bar

"who? and from where?"

never heard of Kevin Phillips and Sunderland

so I came back to Holland and told my mates what club it would be

they laughed their ass off: "good luck..."

well, they were right, it has been a bumpy ride the last nine years...

Re: Football

haha what a story that is.

i'm not too into football myself, but i have a whole bunch of friends who follow st mirren - they go to every game every week, even the away games. st mirren have moved up and down from the 1st division to the premier and back again over the years, so i can understand that you've probably had similar experiences over the years smile.

actually though, the scottish premier deciders are going to be exciting this weekend. rangers need to lose their game for celtic to have any chance to win, and i don't think rangers have won the league for a few years now, so it'll be a nail biting time for their fans. it will probably be absolutely crazy in glasgow this weekend if they do, lots of potential for football related violence due to annoyed pissed up celtic fans neutral.

Re: Football

dordrecht lost with 1-0 from Roda, maybe a draw was more deserved. Anyway, a nice end of a great second half of the season.

Re: Football

@ jacderida: can imagine the atmosphere in Glasgow this weekend, they're expecting the same in the NorthEast of England on Sunday, depends on how things go, I'll be nailed to my computer from Sunday 5pm, already very nervous

@ starborough: too bad they lost, ah well, at least you can enjoy the summer break now smile

Re: Football

and it would be a bit harsh for Limburg to see Roda relegated, while Fortuna's already out of business (sort of)

shame the Midden weren't relegated this year, I've been waiting on a regular Renfrewshire derby in the league for too long! big_smile Fair play to them though, it always should have been Caley Thistle going down this season. Morton's season improved after from Decemebr onwards, but fans and manager were left a bit pissed off when we lost the last four games of the season on the bounce. Maybe just as well cos we've some prime chancers to get rid off before making a go of it next time. wink

Otherwise want Newcastle to go down too, glad I'm not in Glasgow this weekend, and hoping for a better-than-average Champions League final...it'll be sweet if both Barcelona and Man U can play flowing football for some of the match, most European finals turn to utter shit before half time (Bremen vs. Shakhtar was fucking painful to try and watch)

So glad 'Arry turned it around for us, who knows we could be in Europe next season if we beat Liverpool (hello Byron smile ) tomorrow. It' ll be the North East getting relagated tomorrow with Middlesborough & Newcastle along with The Baggies. Shearer never had a chance in 8 weeks to turn what has happened over the course of 2 years around but if he stays on who knows what magic with the right investment he could weave. Gareth Southgate will be sacked pre-season imho.

Re: Football

Tomorrow is gonna be a traumatic one for me.
My favourite team against my favourite London team...I can't watch this game.

Re: Football

cmon, woody, being a liverpool fan is absolute, like unique or infinity, you either is or you ain't.
and just remember if the yids didn't bear us back in november we might still have a chance or a kicking at the title today. i suppose spurs did us a favour though in taking robbie keane back.

crazy season for us. we won more games than united, scored more goals than united, beat them twice and we still come second. guess we are the al gore of this campaign to united's george bush.

like someone said above good luck to everton and barca
see all you guys back here in august

keep hackney crap

Re: Football

fucking brilliant! Sunderland survives and Newcastle sunk to the Championship!

bloody brilliant afternoon

Re: Football

You made a good point there Byron. No fuckin' mercy, and none was shown today...
Now it's back to the drawing board. Tevez, Pranjic, Barry? Who knows who will come in through those doors this summer?
