Between the two main chronicle journos, is one of them more senior than the other? I have it in my head that Douglas is Ryder's boss. Is this correct?

For anyone who knows more about how football on TV and Premier League/Champions League scheduling rules than me.

The Sky announcement from February for April matches https://www.skysports.com/football/news/11661/11644173/live-sky-sports-premier-league-fixtures-announced-for-apri has the Liverpool/Huddersfield match moved to Friday with it possibly changing again due to CL participation. The Premier League or Liverpool site don't mention this at all. The CL fixtures during that time aren't until the midweek after, so if LFC were even in the semis moving this game would just mean moving it closer to the CL match.

Is there a reason for this, or should I just expect the Huddersfield match to be played on Friday like currently scheduled?

Aye. Douglas is NUFC editor. Then it's Ryder and Waugh.
Had a few dances off her when I've been in Blue velvet with friends. She's one of the ones who will push her fanny in your face, usually I like that but hers smells f***ing rotten. Only had dances off her because she agreed to take less money for the dances when me and my mate said we were skint.

I was a pure creep when I was a kid tbf. Used to spunk in deoderant can lids too

I'll show my bias and suggest Kevin Muscat was exactly in the English tradition of Julian Dicks and Razor Ruddock. Timmy Cahill did a pretty amazing "England's Frank Lampard" impression, too

Never played football at a professional level so pardon my ignorence.

What do defenders do while strikers and midfielders do shooting practice? One on ones? Practice long balls?

Who do you reckon is the worst player from our past that would still improve us now if they came back?

First team or squad? Squad would be pretty much any striker we’ve had as they’d >>> Joselu.

First team off the top of my head; probably Bernard, Domi or Bezzer, Tomasson (if you go off his form here, he was actually class).

I was thinking first team and any player's fine, but it has to be their NUFC form that comes, so Tomasson's fine, but it would be NUFC Tomasson and not AC Milan Tomasson. Same with Saha for example.

I'm thinking maybe Lee Clark, Acuna, or Abeid. Thinking along the lines of a better midfielder or potentially a number 10 if I can think of one.

Janmaat’s way better than Yedlin IMO. I never thought he was s*** though

Rafa would get a tune out of NUFC Tomasson plus he’d be played correctly off the big man. He was a workhorse n all. Acuña is a good shout, Janmaat too.

If it's left backs you're after I reckon I'd go Paddy Van An or Pearce. I wonder if Pistone would even be better.

I’m playing wingbacks so I’m not sure a 75 year old Pearce playing LWB would be healthy for him.

Bowyer might be a shout, precisely because he was never that good but we could do with a centre-mid who can push up and support the attack a bit more.

That is a good shout aye. I hate that he played for us, wasn't very good for us, was worse than my next choice Acuna, but was still probably better than what we have. He ticks a few boxes.

Acuna was very underrated imo.
