Surprised the Yanks haven't stepped up yet, must be because Steve Parish is insisting in staying on as Chairman as part of any Sale.
It's irrelevant if you go all out or not, the noise that St Mary's will make to ensure we beat that scumbag Pardew should see us to victory.

If we don't win, I'll blame injuries and bad luck....

No ta on the Mirallas thing, can't even put away a penalty, even Soldado can do that.

West Brom looked solid last night, we have them next, we are going to have a tough time trying to break them down.

NOTE: The kid brought in nothing, the Mother brought in nothing, the driver, the maids and the helpers brought it all in.
That sounds truly ridiculous!

There is definitely a lot of one upmanship with kids' birthdays here in the UK but nothing as extreme as what you describe. A lot of schools here won't allow kids to bring food in for other kids anyway because of little Johnny's or Jane's nut/gluten/lactose/citrus intolerances!

FIFY

PS: Scamp as regards your lot v Palace I am a neutral. I don't care who beats a team managed by Pardew, I just hope to see it every time

That's going to be interesting, Allocation of 5200 sold out two days ago. The games a complete sell out according to the Palace fans trying to get tickets in other areas.

Don't get me started on Mirallas. If you're going to grab the ball off the designated penalty taker, then it's a good idea that you score. Otherwise you look like a prick.

As for playing West Brom. You could try playing an extra striker and give Lloris the night off, as he's not going to have anything to do anyway.

The swine...I have Baines in my Fantasy team, and HE would have scored, too...

Roberto needs to kick some butt into line, there.

Same, here, missed out on some points as well.

If there was any attempts to kick butt, then the way things have been going, he would have missed and snapped his hamstring.

Looks like a classic "he's lost the dressing room" situation. Why the hell didn't Jags tell Mirallas to stop fannying about?

Honestly, it's tragic. This and trying to buy their fat ****wit kids medals on sports day. Honestly, the best offer my fair lady got was about £85.

Yeah, I think the players are all frustrated because the way they're playing obviously isn't working and Martinez won't or can't change it. I think that's why Eto'o is on his way out as the rumours are he said as much in the dressing room, but you know what would Eto'o know about winning stuff.

To be fair to Jags he was down the other end of the pitch at the time, so I don't even know if he saw what was happening.
