    Jeez, looks like at least a couple of people missed the joke in my post about Wilshere.

    Its not just the price, its the fact that you have played awful football for nearly three years.

    But, yeah, the dwindling attendances are a worry. We weathered the storm by having loyal fans and nearly filling the ground every week. If you have a load of fickle bastards, you really will struggle when you go down.
    Well yeah, that's also a factor, I think three years is unfair, we were fucking dire under McLeish but Houllier was moving in the right direction and under Lambert we're playing some decent football but defending exceptionally badly and not getting the results. The attacking players have actually been pretty decent in patches this season.

    If ticket prices stabalise in line with the championship then I wouldn't be surprised if a whole bunch of fans come back to the club. I'm under the impression that a lot of the problem is not so much fickleness but rather that people can't afford the luxury of football. The midlands is a bit fucked at the moment from what I understand.

    You are a factory of sadness.

    True dat. But then, their turnover is miles ahead of the others.

    Depends on the match and there's various deals but it's around 20 to 50.

    Which is why a leech attached itself to them.

    It's quite hard to come to a conclusion on wether Man U are in a good or bad position overall. It's good but precarious I think is the best way to sum it up.

    "Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas says that striker Emmanuel Adebayor is in a race against time to get back from the Africa Cup of Nations to play for Spurs against Newcastle on Saturday.

    He is set to be play even though he has still not left South Africa after Togo were knocked out on Sunday.

    "We are trying to establish the best flight connections for him," Andre Villas-Boas said. "He will be selected for sure.""

    What. The. Fuck.

    Why is he still fucking over there if they were knocked out on fucking SUNDAY!

    Twats.

    Ha, I said he'd go missing, always happens. One player (might have been Toure?) went missing for weeks after one of them - although in fairness, they did win it so went back to their home country for some parade etc.

    Reports are that Lampard is being offered a new deal at Chelsea after all.

    There was some nonsense about the private jet that was to take them from SA back to Togo never turning up. None of the Togo players are back yet.

    Shame, he's been a good servent to Spurs for a long time now. We'll miss his goals.

    I just get annoyed by people thinking players should be blindly loyal to clubs.

    Of course we do, we're fans and want the players to feel the same about the club as we do. It's naive and irrational, but hey, that's being a football fan.

    Carragher has scored three league goals for Liverpool, and seven own goals.

    He scored more for Spurs than our strikers Postiga, Rasiak and Saha combined.

    Even scored an own goal in his testimonial when he took our penalty (quite funny to be fair).

    @kalel That is a depressing fact for those three strikers.

    Funny as fuck though.

    I had Postiga in one of my teams on champ manager - scored 3 goals in 3 minutes in injury time against Liverpool for me, won it 5-4!

    Postiga scored for Portugal last night in fact. Took him a while to come good but he does seem to be fairly highly rated these days.

    If the club can handle the transition from SAF to the next manager we'll be sorted. There really is no shortage of money for investment which the Glazers have proven, they'll spend enough to keep us very competitive and spend the rest servicing the debt or lining their pockets. Debt is hugely reduced and even the much criticised IPO is looking like a good call, shares up from $12 opening point to $17.50 and some big name investors getting behind us. Club valued at $3b at present.

    As I said, changing managers will be a huge task but I like to think Fergie is one of the best paid managers in the world so should be able to attract another top name (or nick AVB). :)

    ssn is getting pundits to make comparisons between Wilshere an Gascoigne???

    He doesn't even dribble. Nothing like him imo.

    For all of Gascoigne's troubles, he was entirely another player altogether (compared to Wilshere), as in blooming incredible!

    And here's a projection of the next few years.

    Big time. His movement and balance when he ran with the ball was close to Maradona.

    This is sort of like saying "if we can just nail cold fusion that the world energy crisis will be sorted". It's more than a huge task.

    There really is no shortage of money for investment which the Glazers have proven

    Have they? Even RvP was cheap compared to the fees that City and Chelsea have been paying. You're spending in recent years has been relatively frugal.

    Overall it's a far from doom and gloom picutre, however, the Glazers appear to want to spend little more than absolutely necessary, which thanks to Fergie isn't much. The next guy has a hell of a task on his hands.

    You're bang out of order. Gazza can't help the dribbling, he's got serious mental health problems.
