I hope Celtic get fucked over the park, the ambulance-chasing c**ts....


I support all British (and Irish) teams against foreign opposition :thumbsup:


I very much doubt Celtic fans would describe themselves as "British" and most of them have never been to Ireland.....


I know, it is very strange indeed.

Second win sorted having smashed Derby 3-1 away following on from the 3-1 win against Stoke. Two games gone and one point behind the leaders with a game in hand.
Looks great but having gone 10 games without losing and running away with the lead last year Leeds fell apart, I do hope the same doesn't happen this year.
This new manager has them playing full on attacking football and it is very good to watch, even the Derby fans were impressed.
These goals would have looked good in the World Cup, inc Derby's scorching free kick...

Liverpool looked good today. If they can cut out losing points to shit teams they’ll be close this year. Man City went to Arsenal and didn’t even bother playing Silva, De Bruyne, Sane and Kompany. Even without their best players they strolled to a comfortable victory. Arsenal are going to struggle to make the top 4 this season...

Agreed, Arsenal played with no strategy whatsoever and overall they were woeful.

Sterling makes me puke! Why couldn't he have scored goals like that in the World Cup?

Yes Jeff Astle injured his brain doing it but the ball was heavier then and it's still only one player out of thousands.

Tell that to his wife and daughters why don't you? After all they were the ones who watched him die.

I take it you didn't watch the documentary that Alan Shearer made about this problem, it interviewed other players who were suffering the exact same thing Jeff Astle had. It was a really interesting and informative documentary.

Try researching the whole thing before making comments like that. :hand:

Well it was a nailbiting 90 minutes for us on Saturday, but really good to get the first three points on the table. JRods second goal was brilliant. Norwich have us a couple of scares though, just glad we held on.

Carabo Cup match tomorrow night at The Hawthorns and I'm going. Looking forward to it, hoping to see some of the younger fringe players get a game and possibly a couple coming back from injury. Not to underestimate Luton though, hope they give us a good game.
