French Sub-duo-ed

Cabaye impresses for Les Blues
So England go and draw their opening game of EURO 2012. I’ve heard this one before!!

After 90 minutes the draw was probably the fair result. Naturally England weren’t the better of the two sides but they held their own and put in a battling performance with some well disciplined/last gasp defending.

The French always looked like this could slip into a higher gear but in the end they seemed to be happy with the draw. England looked tired, after a performance that was similar to the way that Chelsea faired against Barcelona in the Champions League semi’s when the Spanish giants passed and passed, over and over again. Much like the Spaniards, the French couldn’t break England down. Gerrard and Parker both put in excellent shifts, and looked shattered by the end of it.

On to Monsieur Cabaye. Our man in the middle put in a great performance for France and was subbed off after 80 minutes to be replaced by Hatem Ben Arfa. Tyneside for Tyneside. How long has it been since we’ve heard that!? Yohan did well to avoid a booking but really he didn’t do much wrong and it was hardly his fault that the ref was poor was it?!

Ben Arfa didn’t have much time to impress but did have some good touches to showcase and seemed to be deployed up front with Karim Benzema as Laurent Blanc set his team up to try and grab a winning goal.

As much as I love seeing NUFC represented on the biggest stage, it does make me worried about two things. No prizes for guessing injury is one of them and the other is the potential for great form so leading to bids from other clubs.

Now I cant remember bids for one of our lot after a good showing in the European Championship or World Cup but I do remember all too well that night in Germany when our Β£17m hitman did his knee, and we all know where that ended up.

I wish HBA, Cabaye and Timmy all the best with the rest of their possible participation in the Euros…. Stay fit and play well…. just not that well!

Onwards, Upwards.

    That gomez looks brill, shame he’s got a douchebag face ( πŸ˜• ) πŸ˜† . Its annoying me that the commentators are talking about players that could sign for Man U ect… Especially when they were talking about Hummels, ridiculous, why would he want to go to Man U? Massive stadiums in Germany, just won the bundesliga title, guarenteed CL football and is playing with great team mates, what can Man U offer that Dortmund can’t.
    And with that RVP scores 😑


  2. Andy – The GB one? I was keeping it until the squads are near enough ready to be announced πŸ™‚


  3. Toonsy
    Cool, thought that might’ve been the case πŸ˜‰
    That Daily Fail Article that thinks there’s a 4/5 chance of us getting Debuchy is saying we’re thinking about moving for Defoe, why would he move from one teams bench to another πŸ˜• ?


  4. Kim – fingers crossed, 13 times sounds alot in one day like but good that they are short ones, hope he gets through it soon, can’t be nice like.

    Ice – just a bit, I felt like a right knacker thinking bad of the poor kid, when all he was doing was offering his fans/followers the opportunity to win his shirt, and he’s working on Debuchy for us … Always liked that lad me 😳

    Toonsy – a broken boiler is just what you need with a baby in toe like, remember ours broke when Ryan was 6mths, it was fixable but off over the weekend and it was a reet f*ck on!!
    Mr knob cheese is going crackers now tho πŸ’‘


  5. Andy, it just says …”Jermain Defoe has also been mentioned”, yeah, by them. πŸ˜†

    As much as I think he could do a job for us, any journalist worth their salt should know his profile/potential is diametrically opposed to our transfer criteria.


  6. Rodz
    I think you’ve just answered yourt own statement, no DM journo is worth their dandruff, let alone salt 😑 πŸ˜‰


  7. Bats, hhmmm, indeed you could be onto something. He’s hardly renowned for speaking the truth anyway. Just read the BBC article. He’s probably just pissed off the rumour had spread so fast. Makes a pleasant change for that c*nt to be on the receiving end anyway.


  8. Andy – sorry mate, I’ve just seen ya post, wasn’t ignoring buddy. Do you know what, when he said Hummels to Utd I thought, he and Kompany at City would make one hell of a partnership in defence.
    The Germans just looked outstanding going forward. Took them to win before the tournament kicked off and would be amazed if they are not in the final after tonights performance like


  9. Harry Redknapp handed in his letter of resignation last week. It’s taken the Spurs board this long to work out what it said.. πŸ˜†


  10. Toonsy bad news on your boiler lad, if I was you I would go for a worcester combi boiler, super job, tis just a pity you didn’t live near me πŸ˜‰ my son in law is a Plumber and a guy I tattoo is warehouse manager for a plumbers suppliers. My heat exchanger went on my boiler 2 yrs ago and instead of fixing it as it was 10 yrs old I got a new one cheaper than the parts.


  11. …and he said this only last night:

    “No, I haven’t resigned and I have no idea why it’s being suggested I have.

    “This is an outrage – an absolute liberty for people to be putting around this kind of rumour on the internet.”

    !!!! 😯 😯

    ….what a complete and utter cunt. Why do the press even bother speaking/listening to him, when they can make shit up just as well themselves.


  12. Aye Dave, Worcester Bosch and Alphas are the daddies. I think Worcester Bosch used to rule the market, but Alpha caught them up on the quality stakes. That’s what my mate said anyway. I think it all depends how big your hoos is really, and which one suits your requirements best.


    My Alpha would chin your Worcester, hands tied behind its back. 😯 😈



  13. I’m off anyway, all this boiler talk has got me pretty excited 😳 πŸ˜†

    Neet neet ladies and gents, take care of yersells, and each other. 😎


  14. Rod be good,
    Ice yer right mate she has more decorating planned for me soon, but she will have to wait till I clear my diary which might be a while as im still taking bookings πŸ˜† even though she thinks im going to clear it up for a week or 2 πŸ˜‰


  15. DAVE sure you can feel a frozen shoulder comeing on mate,its hard to lift your hands above your head πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰


  16. Haaaahaaaa
    the floppy-chopped [email protected] is leaving πŸ˜† πŸ˜† . Know loads of people have already commented on it but thats the first time I’ve seen actual evidence of it 😈 .


  17. Ice πŸ˜† I think my carpal tunnel is going to start playing up, and when it does it’s hard to hold a paint roller.
    The funny thing is a guy I tattoo is a painter and decorator and he would do it for me but I couldn’t lower meself to get someone else to do it as I would feel real bad. 😳 I didn’t mind getting a plasterer or a tiler in as they are different skills, but any deorating or joinery stuf I have to do meself.


  18. Awesome news πŸ˜€ Come and nick Demba Ba off us now you vomit-faced cunt! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

    Richie I heard Danishtoon IS a daft Lad As for Stroppy he seems to have a soft spot for you

    Someone seems a tad jealous πŸ˜† πŸ˜† I’m sure Richie still loves you Big Dave, not to worry πŸ˜† πŸ˜†


  20. Old Harry is like a cat…. no matter which way he is bounced around he will always land on his feet… funny stuff though… a master manipulator of the media gets some of his own back πŸ˜†


  21. Aussie πŸ˜† …as I said, I am really loveable πŸ˜†

    Much as I hate old floppy chops, he is a decent manager. Sounds like he’s been sacked rather than resigned as Levy said “it’s not a decision I, and the board have taken lightly”…….Joe Kinnear to Spurs? πŸ˜†


  22. Anyone see The Moose on Twitter? Reckons Moyes to Spuds is nearly a done deal and compo has been agreed.

    Until the Director of Communication of Everton replied to his Tweet branding him a liar and that he can expect legal action.

    To which The Moose apologizes and then withdraws his “insider knowledge” πŸ˜† πŸ˜† πŸ˜†

    Dropped his arse much? πŸ˜† πŸ˜† πŸ˜†


  23. good luck Harry, thats what happens when you start talking about Newcastle players contracts too much and too loud – Cheick didn’t like that and now you off. πŸ˜€ good luck by the way, you will need it and one more tip – keep your mouth shut.


  24. Good old twitchy weedled Β£3 million compo out of spuds which after tax comes to about Β£3 million…

    Best news ive had in ages lets see you get Ba and Krul now you rubber faced fecker 😎


  25. Can’t converse with you Rich 😎 – people are starting to get suspisious of us :mrgreen:
