    Def needs a watch, thought the guy from the first series played such a good part it took me a while to get used to the new one but eventually thought he played the role well. Crixus is still my brother and my favourite character, some of his lines are brilliant.

  2. Andy I really liked Agron and I came to like Crassus in the end odd as it might seem ,I think cause he was a worthy adversary to Spartacus ,and there is nothing to beat a good baddie .

  3. Kim – I started reading it then realized, so please don’t be offended but I didn’t read on. 1st of your posts I’ve ignored but with good reason 😉

    Andy – Gannicus was/is my favourite mate, good in a fight and a bit of a ladies man – he’s joining Geordie Shore next week 😆

    Hope not as they’ll die (be relegated) 😆 . Agron was good but had nothing on crixus, who died at the hands of that little tit 😡 . I actually liked Crassus more at the start and enjoyed the fact I’d heard of many of the generals/senators that they talked about reading a lot of roman his/fiction.

    Gannicus is pretty beast and made season 2 bearable with it just being a prequel to waste time.
    Back to football 😆
    See Marv and toto are out of tomorrow, limits are creativity somewhat. Hopefully Benny will start, but will be back to full fitness as it was clear he wasn’t on Sunday.

  5. I’m with Sharpy Gannicus is the best in the whole show! Is it just me who felt a little sorry for Battiatus?

    I like Game of Thrones better though.

  6. TLR – he’s playing at a level equal to his ability mate 😉

    Dave – 😆 he plays for Bordeaux and is available on a free in the summer – another one of Carrs gems 😛

    Battiatus, the guy who screwed over everyone (sometimes literally) and was thusly killed off?
    G.O.T is beast though, I’ll give you that 😉

  8. Interesting read Premand. I would think we compartmentalize our support for a reason. We can all love supporting the club but over the last 5 years there have been some huge ups and downs. So each of us begins to analyze and look for problems. It’s a fairly scientific, systematic way of doing things. I think the owner has focused attention on himself many times and at least half of what he has done has caused negative reactions. The same goes for Llambias. Lawsuits lost, drunken rants, lact of activity in windows, foolish antics at the ground, the list goes on and on. It’s a similar situation with the manager of the moment. Once a manager makes a statement to the press or a poor sub or no sub at all when one is needed it will be analyzed by the supporters and poorly thought out statements will be criticized. The players have to face criticism for poor performances as well as praise for good or great ones. This all goes in to being a supporter of the club, not just someone who praises everything the club do.

  9. Many thanks for all your kind contributions to this article.

    I was especially impressed by B&B @ 18 for the clarity and conciseness with which he expressed his concept. Hopefully this will set a precedent.

    Not that owd gits like me pay any attention to young whipper-snappers like him as I hope I made clear in the article. 😆

  10. Santii – aye to be honest I liked Battiatus as well. 1st series was my favourite like, but Game of Thrones is a good watch as well – especially the dragon lady.

    Andy – do we know how long Marv and Tiote are out for mate?. Think Pards has to go with Benny tomorrow now like.

  11. As frustrating as he may be, thank flock Cisse is like the bionic man, is seldomnly injured, and played in almost ALL our games over the last months. We would be in deep shit without his goals, and that the club allowed us to get into that position is quite pathetic really. What a grave risk to take, and it’s still not yet over.

    Don’t bloody jinx it mate. Wait and see he will fall out of bed and break his wrist now 😀

    I’m already getting nervous for tomorrow.

  13. I have to say overall I think the owner has tried since the last relegation to improve the playing side of the club. This season has been a real setback but last season was brilliant to watch. The owner is part of the group that is responsible for both seasons. It’s rare to see a team slide so wildly up and down the table though. It makes for wild swings in supporters hopes and attitudes and you see it on here as well as all the other related blogs. Unless and until we see a team that is consistently in the top 6 or 8 in the league and actually playing well in domestic cup games the criticism will continue and I would say rightly so. Ashley collects a huge amount of money from the club’s supporters every season and we all have an opinion about how to improve the team or at least how to avoid disasters and pitfalls. Long may it continue.

  14. Santii ….I know mate…..don’t tempt fate and stuff I know…. 🙁

    By the way, I’m still freaking jumping after our makkem defeat. Does anyone have any idea how long I’m likely to feel like this ? 🙁

  16. Aye [email protected], interesting stuff too it is…….

    “In second place is Anita Zabludowicz, a well-known art collector and wife of the millionaire property tycoon Poju Zabludowicz.”…. (she’s really well known I would imagine …..who is she….?)….does she support the toon and does she have some spondoolicks to spend on our team ?

  17. “What is a club in any case?

    Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it.

    It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses, marketing departments or executive boxes.

    It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city.

    It’s a small boy clambering up stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his father’s hand, gawping at that hallowed stretch of turf beneath him and, without being able to do a thing about it, falling in love.”

    Bobby Robson

    This is what I support and when I feel people are not giving it their all or are not pulling their weight then I feel it is right to speak up about it. I agree booing isn’t right however in my opinion there is nothing wrong with commenting on things that you think would help the team. Supporters should be allowed to have an opinion. We all just want the club to do as well as possible. I think burying your head in the sand and pretending everything is rosey also has a negative effect on the team as they can become complacent. I think you can criticise aspects of the team and still not want it to fail.
