  1. Blimey didn't even realize I had dear old Reg.... Looking at my list am confident of getting more points - Bernadette Nolan god bless her doesn't have long left and be amazed if Mandela lasts the year....
  2. points for me too but lots of us had her down, think its time for a points update please....
  3. this April fool from FM amused me! http://www.footballmanager.com/1888/
  4. oh well on checking Mandela is on my list but on a lot of others too!!!!
  5. Was thinking that the other day and I regret hastily assembling my list this year... only one success so far Frank Thornton and he was 92!!!! Don't even have Clive Dunn to fall back on anymore.... come on celebrities start dying. I think Nelson Mandela is seeing out his final days though that's one for the news channels to make an awful lot of fuss about....
  6. an 8 hour ferry ride to Ireland tomorrow means lots of FM, 60 million to spend can I emulate the success of my first season at Real Madrid or suffer second season syndrome???
  7. a rather successful first season in Spain, won everything I entered even sweeter beat Barca in both Spanish Cup and Champions League finals, AVB is not so lippy now! I was gonna quit and try my luck in South America or Mexico but then realised I have the prestigious Club World Championship to compete in next season so will stay for next season plus its a challenge to try and emulate the success of my first season in Spain!
  8. Get in there Thornton at last some points on the board
  9. Clive Burr formerly of Iron Maiden has died. Still nul points for me, I am blaming injuries and the bloody Europa League
  10. bloody hell gutted at the passing of that legend the Gubba, he was ace!!!!
  11. That annoying little twerp AVB - now manager of Barcelona - kept mouthing off in the press but I stood firm and said nothing. My boys did the talking on the pitch and we fucked them over 3-1 which means should the teams finish level come the end of the season I'll finish above them as they only beat me 2-1 at their place. So with 12 games to go am 4 points clear with a game in hand as Barca been dropping points to the likes of Getafe whilst I am on a 12 game winning streak in the league. Ok so its quite easy to assemble a fantastic squad at Real Madrid given their resources but its still a challenge to win the league from Barca and the Champions League and I quite fancy overhauling Sir Alex's points tally so reckon I'll stick with them for a while...
  12. Those Manchester United berks are actually a bit crap.... get used to it cos once sir purple face steps down you'll be as good as Liverpool!
  13. 15 games into the season and joint top with Barca predictably, only lost three games all season and one of them was in the el classico meaning I have to get a result when I play them at home. Breezed through my champions league group and drawn my old employers Schalke in first knockout round. Should be tasty.
  14. Out of nowhere before I'd even got my budget for the new season Real Madrid came calling for my services.... yeah why the fuck not I thought. 50k a week in wages and a cool 93 million to spend. No pressure though expected to win everything in sight of course. The Schalke fans were not too happy when I poached a reserve keeper and left midfielder from them, bought a couple of players from Man Utd. Still loads in the bank but the squad is in pretty good shape and shipped out some dead wood.
  15. won the bundesliga with three games to spare which was good since the title was bagged before the trip to Bayern! Got a massive injury crisis and ended up losing the german cup final to Stuttgart, still a productive season all round.
  16. beat Barca at home 3-1 in champs league 1st knockout round, reckon that late away goal from the Spaniards might come back to haunt. Just lost my first league game in 20 away at Dortmund, still 9 points clear with 9 games to go, the away trip to Bayern my nearest rivals is coming up soon...
  17. Things going quite well at Schalke second season. Top of the league after 14 games on goal difference with a game in hand over nearest rivals Stuttgart. Even better just dicked Bayern 3-0 and seven clear of them. Manager Frank De Boer keeps dissing me in the press but I don't respond... silly Dutchman, my lads did their talking on the pitch De Boer you knobend. Qualified for knockout of champions league with a game to spare although those pesky French poofs Lyon, not content with knocking me out of last years competition with an injury time goal beat me home and away both deserved wins as well. They appear to be becoming a bogey team. Still can play a team of kids and moaning bench warms for my nothing final match against Panathanikos as finishing 2nd whatever the result.
  18. Got offered a job at Schalke 04 in Germany so thought 'fuck' it and left my beloved Cambridge United after over 10 seasons in charge. Schalke were predictably doing shit (14th in the league) but went on a massive winning run and ended up finishing 2nd in the league. Was knocked out champs league in first knockout round by an injury time winner from Lyon and league winners Bayern dicked me in the cup semi final. Still board and fans happy with my work so far. Fuck all of a transfer budget (8 million) but expected to challenge for the title. Team has a good youth set up and some very promising youngsters coming through the system. Quite a challenge to topple the mighty Munich though and win the title. Not playing nearly as much as I'd like but hope to get my second Schalke season underway this week.
  19. That's the world cup coming England's way now they have beaten Brazil, the other teams may as not bother showing up and the trophy should just be given to Woy Hodgson and the lads....
  20. a plucky 0-0 in freezing conditions against high-flying Grimsby Town this afternoon, good to see us bouncing back after losing our last home game to that football giant Nuneaton Boro. Great result for Luton in the cup away at Norwich, much as I hate the club and their supporters still nice to see a BSP team go to a Premier League club and turf them over!
  21. thing is though they beat Lolpool away and Man City in the league cup though not sure what kind of side City put out that night...
  22. the worst lyric of all time has to be this although Stuart Jester will disagree with me.... "Let's Get Rocked" Def Leppard Do ya wanna get rocked? Let's get, let's get, let's get, let's get Rocked...... I'm your average, ordinary, everyday kid, Happy to do nothin' In fact that's what I did. Got a million ways to make my day, but daddy don't agree 'Cos when I try to get away he says He get plans for me Get your butt right out of bed - Stop buggin' me Get up and move your sleepy head - Don't shake my tree. He said Mow the lawn - Who, me? Walk the dog - Not my style, man! Take out the trash - No way! Tidy your room - C'mon get real! Sorry dad, gotta disappear, Let's get the rock outta here. Seven-day weekend, Up all night, In at the deep end, Hang on tight Won't take a minute, Won't take long, So get on in it, Come on, come on, come on Let's get, let's get, let's get, let's get rocked Let's get, let's get, let's get, let's get rocked Let's go all the way, get it night'n'day C'mon let's get, let's get, let's get, let's get rocked. I'm your average, ordinary, everyday dude Drivin' with my baby, To get her in the mood She's dialin'through my radio and I'm ready to make my move, But what she got ain't rock'n'roll and it really blew my groove It was - Chopin, Mozart, Beethoven It makes me wanna scream - Bach, Tchaikovsky, violins Turn it off! - That ain't my scene Well I'm sorry girl, here's my confession I suppose a rock's out of the question? [Repeat Bridge] [Repeat Chorus] Oh, all I wanna do is take a ride into the blue Ev'ry time I want to love you I get stuck inside my room Heaven knows I'm sick'n'tired of dancin' with this broom I feel lucky today Hey, look at that man! Do ya wanna get rocked? Do ya wanna get rocked? It won't take you a minute, It won't take that long, So get on, get with it, Oh, c'mon Everybody! Let's get, let's get, let's get, let's get rocked Get on top, baby Let's get, let's get, let's get, let's get rocked Do ya wanna? Do ya wanna? Let's get, let's get, let's get, let's get rocked Get on top of it Let's get, let's get, let's get, let's get rocked Love to rock your body, baby Let's get, let's get, let's get, let's get rocked Let's go all the way, Let's do it night and day, Let's get out and play, Rock the night away C'mon Let's get, let's get, let's get, let's get (rocked) Oh, Do ya wanna get rocked?
  23. I fear a right royal stuffing is on the cards at the Abbey Stadium tomorrow afternoon by high flying Grimsby Town!
  24. Well done to Bradford, nice to see a lower league side doing so well in a cup, hope they play Swansea depends which Chelski turns up tonight I think! That Peterboro supporting buffoon Adrian Durham was banging away on Talksport how for the good of English football it would be ridiculous to have Bradford playing in the Europa League as they would get knocked out instantly and it would be a waste of a European space. Bet the shoe would be on the other foot if it was Peterboro in the League Cup final the stupid little scum supporting man! Lambert must be fearing for his job now but in reality who could Villa get in who could do any better???
