NOT THAT it's any of your business but I emailed him this morning to congratulate him. I'm taking a client to the match against Reading on Tuesday. Luckily my client is a toon fan so he won't be cross when we get tonked again.

Hopefully your client enjoyed himself, TG...
Of course he did - he had sparkling company
He also enjoyed hearing some songs he hadn't heard before (even at Newcastle) - such as:
"We're sh*t, and we're sick of it"
"What the f***, what the f***, what the f*** is going on?"
To be fair, once the crowd got on their backs the players suddenly ran faster, jumped higher and tackled harder, so it was down to us that we got a two consolatory (as it turned out) goals in the space of a minute. They need to take a good look at themselves. They wear the shirt that Billy Bremner wore.
jim we miss you on here. yeah enjoyed arsenal game. cdnt work out if it wouldve been better for bayern to get a third or for arsenal to get two then bayern scorw a cruel third. in the end 1-1 and a missed penalty was enough to watch it slowly ebb away from them. not good enough. ha ha. i could hope for tott to go out tomorro but dont think its goin to happen.
I saw it last night. It veers from very good to very bad, but overall, if you're a koppite, you would probably enjoy it. I must add that's my niece (Rachel) who plays the youngest daughter TIA (= This Is Anfield) and does a fair bit of singing. She's very good.
I am indeed Kev! I'm going down for the weekend (12-13 April) with a few mates to see it, always good to see these sort of things. Looking forward to it, and we may also have a pint or two of the black stuff while we're there. I'll let you know what I thought of it.
Another great win for the Reds, who look like a young team, hungry and on the rise, while Utd just looked old, tired and without any tactical nous. I will say one thing though, I applaud their fans who SUPPORTED them all through those final 10 minutes, which must have been tough, under the circumstances. That wouldn't have happend at Arsenal or Chelsea. Just a chorus of BOOS! (in fact, I think Chelsea fans booed their team for going top of the league not that long ago!!).
in fairness kev, their fans are having to discover normal fan experiences because theyve lost tgeir workplace bragging rights - in fact theyre finally getting slaughtered after years of cockiness! so theyre also realising the power of the sarcastic chant and ironic singing etc. as a fan of club who sings the loudest when we are 4-0 down in a cup semi final i can testify that its because when your team is shit togetherness is the only thing you have.
Aye Bill, they were just doing it to drown out our gang and it was almost a mantra of '20 Times' about their two more titles than ours! They're already starting to hide behind their HISTORY, just like we've had to for 20 years. Swings and Roundabouts I suppose that sound was even sweeter to us than anything else.
