Yep, it's a great point. Those with a particular agenda will go on as if our squad is only fit for relegation and/or the division below, as if we haven't had comfortable seasons in this division with the likes of Peter Ramage, Alan Smith, Amdy Faye, Celestine Babayaro, Andreas Anderson - to name just a handful off the top of my head - playing dozens and dozens of games. I don't think there's a single player in our current first team squad who, talent-wise, I'd put in the bottom rung of players we've had over the last twenty years. Maybe Jeff Linton.

Is that not a sign of the league improving as a whole

I suppose it has, but even relatively speaking. Like the example given; Ramage/Huntington et al vs Defoe/Berbatov is a bigger mismatch than anything our current players have featured in over the last couple of years. Overall point being, this is miles away from the worst squad we've had at this level yet, when it's useful to, it gets labelled as such.

Is it bad that part of me thinks this is deliberately done to fish for a signed version as usually happens when stuff like this occurs?

Edit: didn't mean to also put the link in :lol:

Nah, he’s effectively paid for a bit of attention.  Just another form of paid advertising.

Completely forgot this fella existed, but was just what's the deal with Saivet?

Not registered in PL squad, neither sold nor loaned out. Would guess he's sitting out his contract, but his whole signing and never featuring seems shady asf - can barely recall how bad he was. Last I remember that free-kick away at West Ham.

State of our midfield going into this season, and the club thinking signing Hendrick is any sort of answer it seems odd he hasn't featured at all.

He’ll be on £30k or thereabouts. Can’t blame him sitting on that sort of money when his next contract will be on a fraction of that elsewhere. Doubt he’s ‘rich’ rich compared to other Premier League footballers, we’ll have set him up for life.

Just went to look at how we went from top at xmas in 2001/02 to being 4th and 16 points behind Arsenal by the end of the season. (Remember the Bellamy injury and everything, but still). I never realized til now that Arsenal didn't lose a single game after we beat them in that 3-1 at Highbury, and they only drew three.

I used to have it like 15 years ago. But gave it to a kid in Thailand who was collecting football shirts. Almost regret it.

Back in the day when we were bigger than City, Chelsea and Spurs. Anyone who wasn’t around during this time can never appreciate how big this f***ing club can be.

Didn't realize they were with the team then, since all the footage came from following season.

Aye, I know Ferguson once said if Bellamy had stayed fit we might have won it but I don’t think anyone would have stopped Arsenal that second half of the season, they were something else. Won 18 and drew 3 of the 21 after that.

Literally everywhere you went, and I mean anywhere in England, Europe or further afield you bumped into someone wearing one of those tops. If you had one on and were in another part of the world you were stopped by locals constantly wanting to talk about Alan Shearer or Kevin Keegan. We were absolutely massive back then, not just making up the numbers. I still remember a Daily Mirror article circa 1996 which displayed a league table of the top selling replica kit sales in the UK and we were top by miles (Rangers 2nd, Man Utd 3rd).

The bloke Bridges talks about being sat next to on the plane also missed out on the part of Aragorn in LotR. Nightmare.

Not that it was a masterpiece or anything (:lol:), but I wonder how different the film would have been if they'd used the UEFA cup stuff?

I get adverts on facebook for the modern replica version which looks f*** all like the original. I made a comment to that effect and they deleted it.  :lol:
