    That feels a bit soon to me, I've only just recovered from what they did.

    Since the Hysel ban was rescinded in 1991, only SIX English sides have won the Champions' League. In the last 10 years that's 2, the same as German sides have managed, so it's hardly the case that we're outcompeting the rest of Europe when the clubs actually meet. In contrast, Spanish sides have won 6 of the last 10, and 13 since 1991.

    Thing is they couldn't lose by more than 1-0 because with 0 players, after the first Sunderland goal there'd be no Newcastle player to take the kickoff. Version I heard many years back was that Sunderland were playing really badly so their manager contacted ours and asked Howe (Or Keegan, back in the day!) for some tips. "What I'd suggest you do to get your confidence up is to just play a practice game with no opposition. Just put 11 dustbins out, in the right places for the opposition team, and practice passing through the dustbins, moving, shooting, getting into the right areas etc and it'll do your confidence the world of good to just focus on what you can do well." "That's great advice, thanks. I'll try that" says Mowbray. Anyway, a few days go by and Mowbray calls him back up. "We tried that practice match you suggested" he says "That's great" says Howe, "How did it go?" "Not great. Bins won 3-0".

    Surely you want this directly behind the goal, not at the back of the stadium? Packing more fans in (which will eventually happen) needs to be close in to the pitch visually and to better carry the noise out, not hidden away 5 miles up where you need a sherpa to get to your seat and nobody can see or hear you. I get that L7 has a reputation from years gone by as being where there's a lot of singers, but aside from that it's really not the best place in terms of acoustics or visuals to actually put a singing section.

    I mean thanks, but I imagine a great number will be standing anyway.
  10. Last minute stoppage-time thunderbastard, 25-yard volley off a dropping ball that's been headed clear, in off the bar to win 3-2 after being 2-0 down. Couldn't give a toss who scores it. Bruno would be nice I guess? I'd prefer it to be someone who will be part of our future rather than someone we're likely to replace soon.
  11. To be fair, that only differs from an Ashley window by 3 letters.

    Don't doubt it I remember hearing it sung shortly after I started going in the early 90s, and I remember being very amused as a young teenager when we first qualified for Europe under Keegan and we changed the words to "we're going to Italy".

    Christ we were singing that back in 1993/4 at least.
