Wow. Jamie Carragher is an angry man.

Angry at John Stones, to be precise.

I thought he was going to explode a couple of times tonight.

Enough to be spitting venom?

smiley - whistle

Barkley and Walker were at it too. That must be the Tottenham and Everton.

Football has been treating me badly in recent times, Mac.

So what possessed me to invest in a ticket for Ireland v Gibraltar? smiley - grr

Jack, it doesn't sound like it was a classic.

McCarthy is upbeat though, which sounds like it is very unlikely to really be Mick McCarthy. smiley - erm

Fixtures are out at 9am Jack.

Given a kind start this year and a horrendous end to the season presumably. smiley - grr

I'm predicting we'll be about 15th after the first six games. smiley - grr

Some cash rich sheikh buys Newcastle, no doubt intending to fill the tram with expensive superstars, so naturally we get to play them first. smiley - grr

The festive period will be ruined too Jack, Chelsea and Man Utd 28th Dec and 1st Jan respectively.

What's that about?

And on your point, we then have Liverpool away late August.

A game against Barcelona has been lined up.

So we've decided we want to get stuffed in pre-season friendlies as well as actual competitive fixtures.

Lovely. smiley - grr

We've got Bayern Munich also Jack.

That Barca match is for a trophy too. As if it wasn't obvious enough we'd lose that one in the first place.

Looks like we're bidding for Tierney. That'll be him going elsewhere then.

Apparently we've bid 15 million for him and Celtic have turned it down.

No doubt we'll be back in soon with a bid of 6.3 million or thereabouts. smiley - grr

Sounds enticing Jack, why would they not take that deal?


The Flying Headbutt

Post 22652

jack white

Well Mac, as the Tierney deal flounders, I'm reading that we've made an offer for Wilfried Zaha which is only 60 million below the asking price.

What could possibly go wrong?

Jack out entire transfer strategy seems to be 'help us out why not, we make bucket loads of money but we're broke really'

In better news, last day in work today for 8. Of course this means today will be especially horrific.

Talking to the public all day. smiley - grr

Nice, Mac.

I am off for two weeks on the 15th. And every single day between now and then will feel like it's lasting a month. smiley - grr I have mountains of work to get through before then. smiley - grr

Heading for the South of France. And they'd better cancel that sodding heatwave. I mean, 45.9 degrees celsius?? smiley - grr That would sodding kill me. smiley - grr

Anyway, work is depressing me in the meantime. And reading about Arsenal's frankly ridiculous transfer masterplan is driving me even more mental. smiley - grrsmiley - grr

Jack, it would be fairly typical if your holiday is ruined because the weather is too bloody good.

Imagine that. smiley - grr

That's the thing about work Jack, great to leave but I can't disconnect because I have left a big pile of work behind. smiley - grr

O

Out transfer strategy seems to be baffling on the account of there not appearing to be one.

Well mac, I'm off on holiday on Monday. In a couple of weeks you can tell me all about our plethora of new signings.

Although I suspect it'll be a short post. smiley - grr
