LOST POTENTIAL

Lost potential. We've all seen it in some young players. Players that were 'giving it as good as they could take' at an early age. Players that were on possibly everybody’s lips in there breakthrough days. Players that were placed in possible future world elevens. Basically players we all had high expectations of. Players that have now unfortunately been plying there footballing skills at a much lower level than we once didn’t expect from them.







The idea for this piece was… Continue

Random topics: Bayern interested in Jennings; Charlie Adam?

Good day fellow witnesses. First article (i think i am doing this wrong) anyway first topic is bayerns interest in a young 18 yr old striker named Jennings. Anyone seen him play? More importantly, if scouts all the way in germany have identified him as a talent worth "taking" why aren't other english teams hovering as per usual?



Second topis is charlie adam. Still yet to move from blackpool. Many know my stance on buying a new midfielder but there is a worry of lack of depth in this… Continue

ENGLAND VS SPAIN: THE DIFFERENCE IN THE FOOTBALLING CULTURE



The premier league is adored and followed all around the world but as we have seen in the champions league there was only one English club in the semi-final and they were humiliated in the final by their Spanish counterparts. The English national teams flatters to deceive each time they appear in a major tournament and are many times booed off the pitch by their own fans. It can be down to the difference in the footballing culture between the…

Support Mcleish Support Aston Villa

With the news that Aston Villa fans are protesting about Alex Mcleish potentially being appointed manager of the club, I thought that they should get behind the team regardless of who is the manager. After all, they support Aston Villa not whoever manages the club.

Ireland’s Euro 2012 destiny in their own hands

With just Tuesday’s friendly in Liege against Italy to negotiate before their Summer break, Giovanni Trapattoni’s Republic of Ireland squad can feel satisfied with their weekend’s work. With six games played and four left to contest in their campaign in Group B of qualifying for the 2012 European Championships the Irish squad know that their passage to Poland and the Ukraine is entirely in their own hands.
That said two of the four remaining games are against their rivals for…

A Bridge Too Far?

As Li Na slumped to the red dirt raucous applause rose up around Phillip Chatrier, a court that’s played witness to tennis’ greats, and Paris saluted its new champion. The French crowd recognized Li for her skill in defeating last years’ winner Francesca Schiavone 6-4 7-6 in a dominant example of power and consistent shot-making. The 29-year-old secured not just her first Grand Slam singles title but overcame unimaginable pressure to become the first…

Just another 606 forum site

I'm sure some of you have explored that site before however does anyone know what happened to it? It was a brilliant clone of the original 606 so I started to get attached to it whilst more members were joining in.

BZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

This looks like a good place to land after the disaster of JA606. 12yards is also a great site and you can switch between their format and classic 606 style. Of all the ones I flew around yesterday these two were the best by miles. C'Mon Randy...................make my day.

anyone think de gea is wrong?

Just a thought really.  I was never overly impressed with de gea and there is no confirmation he will join.  so far i have heard he will, he wont, he will decide later

 

But it occurred to me that the goal keeper position took us a long time to sort and not just after the big dane.  If you look at the history of utd over the last 30 odd years we have struggled before

 

Now with a possible major restructuring taking place do you feel we may have been better going…
