:spit:

it is a good song like, although in it his wife is waiting at home having cooked a curry for him and set the table, bit odd after midnight if you ask me.


one of Wellers best imo- tho its a takeaway curry.

You're right of course been a while and memory warped. Makes more sense I suppose.

Great song. Tony Blackburn refused to play it on the radio at the time as it was “too violent”.

Probably my favourite Jam song. The lyrics are outstanding.

aye, wasn't it based on a real experience of mod Weller getting beaten up by skinheads?

“We have a manager now whose eye for detail is incredible. The injury record since he’s been here has been phenomenal and that’s down to his meticulous planning, when to use or rest players. At the same time, he has a depth of feeling. It means a lot. Some people have worked here who wouldn’t have a clue about tradition, about Geordie people.”

Rafa's class, like. He has one year to crank the pressure on Ashley, then his words after leaving can do even more damage.

Keegan would've quit about 3 times per week, if he was here.

Not sure why you need to have a go at Keegan like.

It was a stupid and needless dig. Some people are really thick.

Erm f*** off

From what I’ve been told, neither Rafa or Lascelles were consulted or were even aware the club were going to put out such a message via their website, it’s purely the work of Bishop and I even doubt Charnley had any input in it despite his ‘signature’!

I’ve tried to find out if Rafa and or Lascelles are unhappy or whatever about this and all I’ve got back is it doesn’t bother them, means nowt, actions speak louder than words and that’s what it’s now about for staff and players from now on, i.e. what they do on the pitch.

If they did agree to their names being attached mind, I’d agree it’s disgusting. The whole thing is. We know this is the kind of PR Ashley and co like to spin though so I’m sticking with the idea they had no input and don’t give a toss, like we shouldn’t. It’s yet more lies from the club. More fool those that buy into it.

Keith Bishop has his hands all over it no doubt but the actual side of the business that would prepare it and get it onto the website is all down to Wendy Taylor.

She’s head of the press office there and she’s the day to day handler.

Gets nowhere near enough stick given she’s from the area.

According to her LinkedIn she’s still head of press and communications.. not a mention of the women’s team on it.

*Edit, seen an article. No reason why it should have been news I guess.

Stand by my opinion on her, she’s been a paid shill for Ashley for the best part of a decade. If she’s been moved on I suspect it’s because Ashley expects things to get rough over the next year or so.
