Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Forest look set to sign the left winger who scored the opening goal at the 2010 World Cup...

South Africa World Cup star Siphiwe Tshabalala is set to join Nottingham Forest in June after impressing on a week-long trial at the City Ground
We've needed another winger for a long time.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

I thought it was a left back you needed!

Absolutely mate, modest investment, that's all that's being asked for.

Look at the players that Clough's actually paid money for; Barker, Brayford, Bailey, Davies, all solid signings IMO.
Even Porter would fall into that category if he was fit! Ok so Croft was a dodgy signing but at the time it looked a good move.

Apparently as well as Waghorn we're interested in some Kilmarnock striker who turned down Scunthorpe last week...and there's mutterings about Commons and Rangers again. I say sell him, then at least we make a profit which is more than Forest did when he pulled the same shit on them!

Apparently Rangers have bid £500k for Commons. I'd take it and get him gone. Save the money on the wagebill and gives Nigel half a million to reinvest.

Croft was a freebie btw. Odd, the freebies, like Croft, Roberts etc have been hit and miss, yet the players he's paid money for have tended to be a bit more of a solid signing.

Bennet is back but Bertrand is back at Chelsea now, hopefully we can sign him, that would be a big blow if we don't get him back.

My annoyance with Forest is we seem to loan in some decent players and then they bugger off else where

Andy Gray sacked after new 'offensive' behaviour comes to light.

Having heard the first, and seen the new evidence, Sky are taking the fcuking piss.

Can't agree with that. As big a bellend as Gray, and Keys are, Sky are taking the p1ss. We employ about 12,000 people across our offices, if behaviour like that seen in the microphone video is enough to get you sacked, then we'd likely have no one left by the end of the week.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Yeah, most of the banter going back and forth in my office (from men and woman) isn't much different! I guess it's different as it's back and forth, not comments made behind someone's back. You'd think people in the media would know better!

Suspect this is a handy way for Sky to get rid. Still the guy is a knob! They're suggesting they've sacked him because other evidence has come to light...as Peter Reid points out, apparently Grey was looking into possibly sueing the NOTW over phone hacking...now who owns that again?

BTW, 500K for Commons? Bite their hand off, Nige!!!

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

On the plus side, Andy Gray is gone. If Keys, Redknapp and Merson could follow that'd be great. Then we can started on the BBC punditry cull.

So, that Manchester United eh? They're like the footballing version of the Terminator.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

I think what's scary about United is that they're clearly a weaker team than they were a few years ago, yet are just as unstoppable!

Pity the fool who follows Fergie...

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

United are benefiting massively from the decline of Chelsea, and to a lesser extent, Liverpool. Arsenal are closing the gap again finally, but aren't the finished article yet, and you have the new pretenders, Man City, who again, aren't close enough yet.

I expect Chelsea will come good again. Saw they had a £53m bid for Aguerro and Godin turned down yesterday, a sign of their intent at least.

Keys has just walked and actually said on Talksport Radio he deserves to be battered for his words. I don't mind Redknapp too much but he does sound like a school boy on crack at times and if I had a wife like Louise Redknapp I would be at home with her and not on the TV

Paul Merson is a laugh, I can't stand Dean Windass when he's at a match because I only understand every 4th word . I wonder if Ben Sheppard whose good at his job will get the main role with Dave Jones who tookover for Monday Footy, to get Sheppard's job as number 2.

I do wonder who will get the co-commentary job with Tyler though ? Several years ago Graeme Le Saux did that job for BBC and he was brilliant at it, I would love to see him back in the box.

Actually yes, Windass is awful - he can't talk about a headed goal without butting the camera

Peter Beagrie can also go - he's Sky's Football League version of Redknapp. Not annoying per se, just dull through overuse.

Perhaps when Fergie retires...

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

I suspect Keys has jumped before he was pushed, notice he mentioned dark forces at work behind the scenes. It looks increasingly like this has nowt to do with sexism (interesting how further information about Gray came to light in the wake of this) and is Sky's way of offloading the pair of them on the cheap. If Gray is as sexist as it appears you're not telling me bosses weren't well aware of this some time ago (always assuming he wasn't already down the diciplinary path and this was the final straw which doesn't appear to be the case) I wonder what his lawyers are advising?

Commons off to Celtic then, which is annoying given they've offered 200K less than Rangers, but Rangers wouldn't pay his supposed 20K a week salary demands!

Ah well, he cost us nothing so we made a profit on him at least (signing on fees aside!) just hope we get at least one striker in before the deadline!
