Just to put you all right. Newcastle will be winning the league this year. I know this as it will be the first time in 15 years that I can't get to the match!!

Why can't they get a team that matches the passion of the fans?
My wife is a makem and loves it!

They never let Harold Shipman continue to practice after he got locked up...but they still allow Risdale to own a football club.

Amazing, isn't it?

Ahh the mighty makems, them with the best supported team in the north east,

Still good to know that will only be bothering us for one year at a time!
We did work out that the main reason they have a problem is no one knows where sunderland is..

Conversation goes like this..

so where are you from then??

Sunderland..

Where's that then??

Near Newcastle.. (normally said with a red face through gritted teeth!)

Newcastle's problem has always been defense, but big Sam has changed that around, now its the strikers he has a problem with.

She loves what Danny ????

The fact she left the place!!

Oh and our defence isn't that bad. Had the best home defensive record in the 2 or 3 years ago, just old andy grey on sky would never tell you that!

As for big Sam.. is he really that big?? He'll have to be careful not to get stuck in the nice shiney bucket seats in the dug out!

Last seasons home game against Leeds was fun especially after Risdale was banned from Elland by the New Leeds board.

We won and they were virtually consigned to relegation.

There was what could be called an interesting atmos in the ground that day

Risdale got out of Leeds unscathed unlike the club......they spent on the back of the Champions league money of years back when they seemed to be the next big club. Then failed to get a CL slot and thats where the problems began.......

A good mate of mine is a die hard Leeds fan who used to travel from Sputh Wales to virtually all their games and he just cannot believe the fall from grace of the last few years. We waved as they passed by on the way down......

hmmmm Cardiff, interesting one there, unsure if I like them or not.

Saying that they did make me smile when they went to Darlington in either 92 or 93 and supporters in one of the pubs started baa'ing.

Dave Jones got some seriously over the top abuse from the leeds fans that day..............

Not 100% sure about him and the accusations mind.
