LOL I've lost count of how much shite has been discussed re: Forest...will they won't they, can they can't they...being a fan of theirs might well still give me a coronary in my early 30s!!

Obviously being the original red army....we should be up there. And I'll defend them til I die. My Dad took me at 6 months old to stand in the Trent End terraces. Well he stood I lazily sat in my carry pouch with all the hooligans. If that's not a true fan not sure what is....and if we end up in the conference then so beit.

- Darren Bent should be at a top club. If Arsenal had spent money on him instead of Chamakh (who has been dreadful) maybe they would have battered a few more teams.

- Speaking of battering, Lee Bowyer is still shit.

- Apparently Roy Hodgson is being touted for Manager of The Year. No really. From what I've read Liverpool weren't very nice to Roy.

- Robert Green and Ben Foster are not very good are they? England quality obviously.

- I would give a good deal of money to see Wigan stay up and have Blackpool go down just so that smug twat Holloway will be shown up. Tit.

- Wouldn't it be amusing if Chelski fire Ancelotti and hired Wenger?

- UEFA are an embarrassing bunch of spineless *****.

- Man City have proven once and for all that you don't need to play anything like decent football to succeed. You just need £500 million pounds.

- Astonishingly almost every Liverpool and Spurs supporter I've heard on Talk Sport yesterday and today claim to not want their clubs to play in the Europa Cup next season. How freaking arrogant is that? Especially for a club like Spurs who never get to anything interesting except once every 15 years.

- Apparently the English FA don't give a toss about the FA Cup anymore either.

Is it any wonder, crappy Thursday night fixtures, Channel 5 and ITV 4, conflict with EPL and relatively little recompense compared to CL.........however that said I think you'll find the majority of Spurs fans DO want to be in Europe even if it means Europa League - the fans you get on Talk Sport are generally planks.......

Agree, agree, agree, agree and agree. Add that complete nutjob Joey Barton to the 2nd point. It shows the moral bankruptcy of football that these criminals keep getting very highly paid work. Scumbags.

Mind you - The FA only put the FA cup on after the United game because they don't like City either.

One final thing I've learnt - the worst United side in 20 years is still the best in England.

Oh I forgot - no one will have the pleasure of watching teen-tache uber-twat Gary Neville falling over as once again he fails to stop an opposing player from just walking slowly past him.

But we will have the pleasure of watching wife-bothering racist thug John Terry fall over as he realizes that once again he is completely and totally out of position, and doesn't have Ricardo Carvalho behind him to save his useless overrated arrogant arse.

I'm worried about that fence you have been sitting on...you really should let us know how you feel.

I do hope you're taking notes - I sometimes doubt whether you even know what shape a football is.

Just go ahead and use a marker-pen and write the numbers right onto your computer monitor.
