It's a bit of a silly conversation really. It's a lot easier to say which footballers aren't scumbags.

Leighton Baines and Steven Naismith is the answer BTW.

Wanna buy a Football Club?
Who will start the bidding?
Blackpool's owners the Oyston family have put both the club and the company that owns Bloomfield Road up for sale.

Blackpool FC and Blackpool FC Properties Ltd are both available to buy as Owen Oyston and son Karl look to end their 31-year relationship with the Lancashire club.

As a very young child I spent many a time at Bloomfield Rd watching players like Jimmy Armfield, Tony Green, Alan Suddick, Paul Hart, Peter Suddaby, Mickey Walsh and a few others.
After the Oyston family destroyed the club they are just another team sad to say as in the 1950's they were perhaps considered one of the bigger teams who had the likes of Sir Stanley Mathews and Stan Mortensen plying their trade.

I know scamp won't be interested as its a peasant club Oop North.

Couldn’t pick either out of a lineup.

I always had a soft spot for Evra - until he beat the shit out of a fan, of course.

I’ve met a few players and most are twats. GNev and Jamie Redknapp being big exceptions. Absolutely brilliant. And Norman Whiteside - who I had a pee next to in Cardiff, who was, and is, a legend.

In related lower league news this put a smile on my face and did cause coffee to snort out of my nose.
Honestly, if this was from the Onion or Mash it would be funny, but this is an actual real thing!

Should we start a list of other clubs he probably should not officiate at?

BTW, I hate Swiss-bought referees... if thon's a "penalty" last night, there'd be about 30 penalties in the PL every weekend....fckin' chopper, that Romanian b'stard.
Can I block posts, emails and messages from specific users?

There you go.

Welcome back Ian and that could be perceived as the Scouse Wit coming into play. I admit it took me 3 times to say the refs name to fully appreciate where you coming from. It helps if you say the name fast.

Now imagine him reffing a Citeh and Chelski game. Which brown envelope would he take?


FFS Jones possible hamstring injury in the friendly. This should now put him with more minutes on the treatment table than on the pitch.

True. Wish I was an armchair fan who was as wise as an Evertonian who’s never been to Evertonia. Chomp.

I’m sure. At least you aren’t a Scouser.

Who does Abrahams play for? Half an eye on the Engerlund game, and every time he seems to have the ball he falls over or gives it away. Hilarious. Hoping it’s a Mickey Mouse club.....

Why he's one of our bright young hopefuls, like Lukaku and De Bruyne.
Probably end up costing some astronomical fee and playing for one of the Manchester teams'

"Since meeting up with Gareth Southgate’s side, Rashford and Lingard have made an impression on Abraham.

‘The lads are very bubbly and when you look at players like Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard, you can see that they’re confident lads and it gives you that nice belief in yourself as well when you get to play with top talented players like that."

Dont worry Ed, I never was a "proper" scouser, at best I was a wool from the wirral, and even then I was a transplant from the home counties, so you dont have to hand in your ManU membership card just yet.
Hows that one year transitional season coming along

I've just had an epiphany.

Welcome back son. Just reading your news in the Canada section.

Finally getting out of this hell hole.

What are you worried about? You look much better defensively when Jones is injured
