  1. Last week he said that this years pre-season preparations are so much better than last years because the players did not have to put up with the heat and a grueling schedule. He was on that trip with them and he knows that is not true. To be sure, they had transatlantic flights but just about every other PL team did and quite a few went to the far east. He is defending his buddy McWally whose excuse for the slow start was the pre-season. I don’t know if Ryder is doing it on purpose or if he can’t help himself, but he is saying the same thing today.

    I was at the Milwaukee game last year and conditions could not have been more perfect. They then flew to Portland where it was about 20 degrees at kick-off and took a 2 hour flight to Sacramento where again it was 20 degrees.

    Ryder is lying. They also stayed at the Pfister hotel, the best in Milwuakee, and Lee was there with them. The poor lambs had to put up with perfect weather and 5 star hotels but that doesn’t fits with Lee’s recollection that it was a terrible pre-season schedule.

  2. Kimtoon: Ryder is a lying sack of sh!t and is still making excuses for McClaren because he was his biggest fan and cannot bear the fact that he was wrong about him. You might remember I did a write up on here about the Milwaukee game and then a California guy did a great piece about taking his son to a NUFC game for the first time to the Sacramento game.

    I am sure Wor Lee would never think he would be caught in his lies but that was about as easy a pre-season tour of the States as could ever be set up.

  3. I am not going to dwell on it any more but I looked up Man U’s pre-season just to show what a pathetic excuse it was from McClaren and Ryder last year. In the next few days they play:

    Dortmund in Shanghai on July 22
    Man City in Beijing on July 25
    Galatasaray in Gothenburg on July 30

    You know they will not get a minutes peace either with mobs of Chinese and journalists at the hotels and training. By comparison our little jaunt last year was a little jaunt !!!

  5. Sorry Icedog.

    I still can’t see this partial swap deal with Liverpool happening as I have never seen a swap deal in the PL. Ever.

  6. Just looking at total transfers in PL compared to Championship so far. The PL spends £2 for every £1 it makes in sales, whereas the Championship is 1 for 1. Even Newcastle, who I would consider as having had a good window so far – has only made a net loss of about £5m so far. We are likely to be in big profit by the time the window closes, with a much more balanced squad.

  7. Aston Villa spent £5m this summer on some 21-y-o kid from Reading (a midfielder) that only played 12 Championship games last season with no assists and no goals…

  8. Sissoko – I’d rate myself 10 out of 10 for the Euros.

    Well young man, you’d be lucky to get a 4 out of 10 for last seasons efforts in my opinion.

  9. It gets worse. The £5m Villa signing has only 6 Championship starts to his name. Ever. Only 13 Championship appearances in total. Ever. He only has 36 senior appearances ever – mostly in League 2!

    To make matters even worse, he missed almost all of last season thanks to two serious injuries – first his knee and then 10 minutes into his comeback his hamstrung went.

    I appreciate he has shown ‘talent’, but £5m for an untested, injury prone youngster is absolutely mental!

  12. Gini will get his move to Liverpool because he has talent and even though letting it be known he wants away has so far acted the model pro. Contrast with Sissoko who cannot keep that arrogant gob shut for more than 5 mins and it’s interesting how Gini has seemingly interested more parties than the god that is Sissoko. He should be careful what he wishes for, he may go to Palace for a knock down price if we get no takers.

  13. I know I go all Eric when it comes to Sissoko, but hells sake, the bloke makes me wanna smash the pc screen everytime I read one of his interviews or quotes. Can’t remember the last time I disliked a player this much. Please please please hurry up and flog him.

  16. From the sounds of it, a lot of Reading fans were gutted to see him go.

    But yeah, their transfer policy is akin to me in a casino after 5 pints. It’s either all or nothing, and so far it has categorically been nothing.

  17. From Paddy Power RE the England job…

    “Looks like it’s now Steve Bruce v Big Sam for the England job.
    The worst two horse race since Susan Boyle took on Diversity for the Britain’s Got Talent title.”

    😆

  18. Ice, I cannot believe Manure are willing to pay out all that, he isn’t anywhere near as good as that value. He paled into insignificance compared to Sissoko at the Euro’s and that'[s some achievement up against our serial underperformer.

  19. All these sinkholes that keep appearing, why did we never hear of this before the 1990’s? and why can’t one appear under Sissoko. 🙄

  22. ANDY just follow on with scum,they must be in real bother,i was reading a storey in the press in Italy the reason the Santon deal broke down was because scum wanted to pay the transfer fee over three seasons,i mean it was only for 3 or 4 mill ffs

  23. Ice they have huge debts, no wonder they were desperate to stay up. They probably need the £100m tv dosh to clear some debts

  24. Finally the news every England fan has been waiting for …. The FA have finally saw the light and approached Steve Bruce for the top job.

    So it’s a 2 horse race – Fat Sam or Fat Steve.

    SSN are reporting that Brazil, Germany & Spain have already pulled out of the next WC – well what’s the point if England have either of those big guns leading our charge 😆

  25. Very interesting Trump supporter letter there. Hmmmm. And his wife plagiarized her speech from Michelle Obama. They make a wonderful team Donald and Melania do. 😆
