Poised? 1st post in yonks!
As for turning forums into wasteland............The evidence on multi multi boards all points squarely at you Jan. Maybe you like wastelands because it reminds you of your native Scotland. As for sending spam. I actually said to Drummer a couple of weeks ago that I might post something just to prove a point. That point being that you would crawl out from behind your rock and accuse me of sending spam or messing your e-mail account up.
HEY JIM....................I WASN'T WRONG!!
FFS, where is the guy, he is on FIRE! He is a valid Captain's pick for the remaining games. Come on Yahoo get it together!
No winter here, John, just a hot dry season and a hotter wet season. The wet season is just finishing, and the cyclone season with it.
Checking the weather over there over the past few months it's no wonder the main topic of conversation there is the weather!
Talking of Dodge, did you see his comment the other day to Govinda?
" I welcome good thoughts and enjoy comments no matter how far fetched."
I nearly choked on my mango lassi when I read that!
It seems hard to imagine that no deals will be done before the WC. I think Wenger likes to wait till the last moment of the transfer window and that has never worked well for him. There are plenty of players who could consider their future now. Bayern are done with their season so there players could consider their future, Loic Remy is finished with his loan spell for all intense of purpose, Bony at Swansea is finished (no relegation battle - btw I was right we should have gone for him he scored 25 goals for Swansea in his first season).
I think it looks like we will lose Sagna on a free, so that is one addition we will need, can't gamble on Jenkinson not get injured, I think with Arteta, Rosicky, Carzorla and Flamini all getting on in age we could use some young blood in that department (Bender?). We need a striker and we need an other winger. Vermaelen might want to leave.
It is a safe bet that Ramsey, Ozil, Wilshire and Walcott will all be injured again next season question is will it be for 6 games (or 18% of the season) or much longer like this season. We need a deeper squad as we saw this season and can't be surprised if we have an other season with many injuries.
Also many players will get a few weeks of after the WC so that doesn't seem like a good time to get their attention either does it?
It is hard for me to accept teams won't do deals before the WC and not all players go to the WC either.
Cheers lionel, erm, yeah I guess I could start a league for us lot next season, Anthony kind of did that this season, problem was it's only 100 and so many gave up that I've been stuck at 7 (just moved to 6) for about 15 weeks! lol... Somehow moved up to 876 globally, so panicked and added a couple of strikers to me XI, but I'm not wrecking the Palace themed XI to fit SAS & Dzeko in. Well played LFCW, you were my benchmark, not gonna catch you... unless... lol :) gla

yeah yeah....that was funny the first couple of times..."Kel"....
...got any new material....? ....or are you hoping to sell it to the BBC as a sitcom...?
....actually...that could work...:D ..
Thanks for the thumbs up re Arsenal & the FA cup win. As for the outback bare back rider Altree, he was last seen down Black Nellies Old Soaks Bar outside of Cairns telling anyone who would listen that he's just back from a 'Black Ops' mission with the Seals in Nigeria. Apparently he broke the place up, and no one could get a gl#$%$ down their necks for laughing. Honestly, you couldn't make it up...the mans a walking disaster, and a tied on certainty for a good #$%$ kicking.......every time he opens his mouth. But we shouldn't be hearing much more from him Manure have hired another Dutchman to take them to the cleaners......gluttons for punishment.
I think Arsenal signing both Remy and Benzema would be good business, no disrespect here but Arsenal lacked on firepower last season, I hope they do better next season.
"English kids have a right to play for English teams, whether their local team or not, and English supporters like to see English players in their team "
Most English local teams are predominantly occupied by English players. It is the PL which contains many foreign players. I think the goal of the PL is to put out an international product. Most big PL teams have probably, in numbers, more fans abroad than in the UK and want this. That is why they go on these ridiculous foreign trips playing in Asia the US and other parts of the world, to promote the brand. Not too many Arsenal fans complained about winning the FA cup with help from foreign players. No Chelsea fan would have complained had they won the PL and no City fan, as you stated, complained about winning the PL with foreign players. Not too many Man U fans complained when RVP won them the title. Fans want results first and foremost.
Why not try to give English players a system, a youth system, that allows them to earn a place on top teams, across the world, based on merit rather than rule? Why should they not be able to be as good as foreign players. By the time they make it to the PL it is more often than not too late to teach them the basics. They should learn the basics from ex-players, when they are 5-15 years old not when they arrive in the PL by then it is too late.
It is my opinion that just as in economics, tariffs and quota's tend to adversely effect competitiveness.
Fix the problem at its origin not on the level of symptom.
...and here's Kipper...buddying up to the last troll on a board killed by trolls because Kipper can't debate anything...

Ultimate Dream Teams have a simple looking WC game now open, looks good and easy to use. McDonalds/FIFA isn't open yet, but you can register. Both free.
"A Dutch oven is a thick-walled (usually cast iron but also ceramic and clay) cooking pot with a tight-fitting lid. Dutch ovens have been used as cooking vessels for hundreds of years. They are called casserole dishes in English speaking countries other than the USA ("casserole" means "pot" in French), and cocottes in French. They are similar to both the Japanese tetsunabe and the Sač, a traditional Balkan cast-iron oven, and are related to the South African Potjie and the Australian Bedourie oven."
No doubt you and that feeble excuse of a wife of yours, (Gill isn't it?), have a different version, probably involving your habit of spoiling yourself whenever you see something you find amusing.
