OK, you're making me have a bit of a cry here. :,,,,(
It IS the kids I've been thinking about since Friday. Old lads like me have seen it all before, I'll get over it in time, no matter that I don't understand what happened, and probably never will.
But seeing another little kid crying over this one is just not fun. I'm sure there are plenty in Newcastle as well tonight, so I'll spare a thought for them as well.
Oh, and fellow Reds - please don't burn your shirts, it's just not on.
You can choose to believe all players talk bull and there's no point having a connection but that takes away from the game.
Will be interesting to see what he has to say.
It's more than just emotional investment - it costs me a fortune to take myself and my two boys along to St James' Park on a regular basis. Andy Carroll was supposed to be the Newcastle United number 9 for the next ten years or more, the replica shirts that I bought,(my lads have both got 'Carroll 9' shirts) will now be thrown away and I have two deeply upset little boys crying their eyes out - trying to understand why their 'hero' has just asked to go to Liverpool. I have explained that he wanted to get paid more and their upset turned to anger.
Torres/Carroll/Tevez/Rooney the name changes but the story remains very much the same.
Good riddance to one and all.
That's exactly it, GLIB, and really, it's just brutal for the supporters. None of us want to turn plastic, changing our allegiance depending on who's sitting on top of the table any given week (no offence there TCIR).
I know we can't go back to the old days, but I certainly wish all of this money was kept confidential, I just don't want to know anymore. And of course, the modern marketing makes the individuals such big stars that it's no wonder people want to buy into that. For me, it's more about the club. After all, just like Kenny, I don't believe anyone is bigger than the shirt.
Oh, apparently there is a bid in for N'Zogbia from NUFC now.
I remember that. Joe Kinnear, LOL.
Wigan have turned it down, so you're safe from N'Zog.
Would you like N'Gog? <whistle>
Is this to be expected, accepted or tolerated? the protracted part of the financial terms are over image rights, he wants to know exactly how much money he'll get by making lfc kids cry.
Turns out he is just as cynical as the idea of santa claus.
You know what? It's like he has an evil twin who has taken over his body for the last 3 days.
It goes so far against what we thought we knew of him, it's untrue. That in itself is going to make it a lot easier to see the back of him.
Last 3 days? Makes you see the last 6 months in a whole new light......
You know what, the emotions in football are just like relationships! The love, hope, faith, trust, doubt, betrayal everything.
When we finally signed Suarez I was on Facebook like "right, that's it!", proceeded to write a monologue about media rubbish and how many times did Reina and Torres have to come out and declare allegiance?... then was swamped by other fans with the dreaded transfer request!
I'm hoping Reina doesn't do the same! You think you have the bond and I have more faith in Reina, always have, but still... right now betrayal rears it's head and makes you wonder.
