My dad hates him. Mentions a story how in his first training session he told Supermac ‘this is how you take a throw in’. :lol:

My dad is the same.

My dad hates him too. For Supermac alone though. No idea what transpired to leading him being sold but he was my dad's first hero.
But...6 in a row. But...Calciopoli.

Another member of the David Batty fan club (not literally) here. Such an effective player. Win it and give it.
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

Batty was last into training, first to leave and spoke to no one. Shearer even speculated, "I'm not sure if he liked football."

Every time I see David Batty play I realize how much better he was than given credit for.

Batty was a super super player @Kanji. I had a ST during his time with us and he was a top player. A great addition to the team. He really moved us on a level imho.

Mad how he's gone completely incommunicado now. Literally, career finished, disappeared.

Iirc he didn't particularly enjoy football in general.

Strange that because he seemed very popular amongst his team mates etc.

I'd heard he would go to training, work his bollocks off, go home and very rarely socialise etc.

Shearer talked about it a bit on one of the MOTD podcasts. Basically said he drove an hour and a half each day to training, didn't really say much and would leave the second they were allowed to. Never once stayed behind or did anything extra he didn't have to do. Didn't keep in touch with any of his team mates and nobody knew what he was up to now.

Keane mentioned not long ago he was in the top few toughest opponents he's even had to play against too which is decent praise.

Apparently regrets not taking the job here in 2009, dunno if that's pre or post Shearer, mind.

First time I’ve heard of this?! Assume it was after KK walked out?!

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-8971383/David-OLeary-reflects-exit-Leeds-boss-Mikel-Arteta-right-man-Arsenal.html

After close to 10 years in the shadows of this sedate parish, are there any regrets?

‘I should have taken the Newcastle job in 2009. I’ve always loved the fans there. It reminds me of Leeds. I loved the Friday night in Newcastle before the game, the banter they had about them. So yes, that is my one regret.

‘I would have loved to speak to Mike Ashley and make an opinion of him. I didn’t know if Derek Llambias (managing director) was telling me everything about Mike. Something just didn’t add up.’

Keegan left in 08. So this would probably be the summer after relegation, unless he's got the year wrong.

About time we had some of this, even the Sunderland one shows the real people supporting the club, the fans, this looks very similar . O0   Can’t wait .

Read that interview yesterday, it’s mad that we agreed to it, so basically Rooney said he’d sign on the proviso that if Man Utd came in for him 1 year later we’d let him go, I mean come on, would’ve been crazy to have signed him then sold him after 1 season, obviously Man Utd may not have come in or we’d have got a good price etc but it’s a strange one, not much commitment from the player when he’s thinking of leaving before he even signs!

Didn’t Rooney’s agent have an office at SJP and was very pally with Shepherd? Paul Stretford?

Wasn't it all a ploy to get Rooney the money he wanted and financially struggling Everton the fee they wanted?

 Freddy Shepherd was best man at Rooney agents' (Paul Stretford) wedding and Im sure Rooney and Shepherd himself ended up being close.

Would have been worth it even if we only had him for 1 season
