  2. Pre match chat

    Difficult to predict the formation from that line-up..... Lets hope it becomes apparent come Kick-off ;-)
  3. Pre match thread

    I think he's picked all those he knows will battle for the ball and not get bullied off it.... it's this 'earn the right to play' philosophy of his again...... bring the flair players on later to run at tired legs?? hope it works.... MUST win imo!
  4. Pre-Match Thread

    I like this, but thought Guzman played for Napoli - is he any good in nets?
  5. January Transfer Speculation 2015

    might be a daft question, but who is the player with no. 25 on his shorts, pictured training on the official site? i don't recognise him and the squad list has no number 25...

  8. Lambert says he's hopeful Vlaar is back in for tonight's game on the O.S. "I think there might be a chance. I will see how he feels." "I can't risk him. He has to be comfortable. But if he thinks he can play, we will look at it"
  9. I think Benteke is out injured what makes you think that Paul? first i've heard.... :-( bad news for me - I'm still expecting Christian to come good again, soon.
  10. Ratings and Reactions: Fulham 2-0 Villa

    At least our possession stats have improved since the Southampton game
  11. just think it needs a natural left footer there! the defence is weakened enough without Ron
  12. Can't Delph do a job at Left back? playing Bacuna there seems desperate, having never seen him play in that position...
  13. Nelson Mandela Dies 1918- 2013

    Self-defence is no offence. If you're attacked in the street i'm not going to moralise with you about which tactic you use to defend yourself! There's not much talk about the violence of Apartheid from those criticising Mandela's stance. To be clear, the minority of young ANC members who formed Umkhonto we Sizwe (MK: ‘Spear of the Nation’) of which Nelson was one, were on a hiding to nothing. Terrorism is the last desperate defiant act of the defeated, In this case borne out of the frustration of demands for simple democracy being met with extreme violence and mass murder.from the state. MK were quickly arrested and imprisoned, along with the ANC leadership. It was the wave of Mass struggle of the 70's, the 'New Union Movement' in '73, the student & community revolts in Soweto and the other Townships,leading to the Mass struggles and strikes of the 80's, for which Mandela became the figurehead from his cell, that finally forced the regime to negotiate with the ANC.
  14. Nelson Mandela Dies 1918- 2013

    I think we all have a bit of reading to do! He did a lot of good and will be remembered for that, but let's not rewrite history. His sins were not minor. If you're so sure, why not point us in the direction of this reading that we have to do? Mandela was convicted of sabotage, and always denounced terrorism against individuals, despite the horrendous violence of the Apartheid state. He only turned to this tactic in desperation after Police massacred 69 unarmed demonstrators in 1960.He attempted (unsuccessfully) to blow up a couple of pylons if my memory serves me correctly - it's many years since i read 'the long road to freedom'. I think now would be a good time for a re-read. I remember it had a massive impact on me as a young man.
