Didn't realise you meant the member on here, I thought you were on about a player.
You mentioned 'Ronan' and 'member' in the same sentence!

Do you realise what you've done????

Re: What do we need for next season? Signings etc.

Charlie Adam's legs have gone. After watching the last Old Firm game, I would love it if we could poach Scott Brown. A real nasty b*****d, who opposition fans could hate, but has a lot of skill as well, and is a real leader. Just what we need in our midfield. He will be in the last year of his cont...

Is he any worse than Diouf, Bowyer or Saiz spitting who we didn't mind? Who is Ronan?
Tell him who you are, Ronan.

Re: Virtual Lowfields Road - on your mobile device!

The game was often secondary, Norm, but it was a blast in that anarchic crazy house.

A lot of the fun was in trying to keep up with multiple simultaneous conversations.

Often answers appeared out of context with predictably hilarious results.

A competition-free poll-free feast of fun.

Re: What do we need for next season? Signings etc.

But lets be honest, he is exactly what we're missing and every team in the league will want him. I hate to say as I dislike him immensely, but I'd even take Joey Barton, as he would improve us massively. Heck I hated Diouf and didn't want him here, but warmed to him after a while. He's not going to...

Charlie Adam is on record saying he wants to play at Elland Road, so is certainly not unlikely he'd join. He's just what we're missing.
Like Ronan he is fat and slow.

Unlike Ronan he is a dirty ex-Rangers barsteward.

No thanks.

2-1 Preston . .Sean Maguire.
A player we should have signed having watched him light up the League of Ireland. One of several more than decent Irish players ignored.

VLR in it's day was absolutely brilliant.....live commentary on in the background and at it's peak had about 50 people on board during matches....it was a joy !!! I think live TV coverage of Leeds kind of killed it....but we used to have some great craic there...I look back on it fondly. :tup: It w...

You start a new job and aren't given good enough tools you won't do a v good job Same with Heckinbottom Numerous examples of a manager coming into a club performing badly and turning it around with the same players. And turning individual players into world-beaters! The players probably are not res...

Re: Negativity

Why is it considered negative to judge a manager on results? My whole working life in sales was based on results. I lived/died by them. Same with what I'm doing now in 'retirement'. If I don't produce, then, I'm not successful. Doesn't matter what else heckingarse is doing as results suggest he is ...

Re: Mick McCarthy

Did really well at the 2002 World Cup and probably would have done even better had Keane not spat the dummy.

Plus he is a mick.

And we could do with a few more of those about the place.

His personality not to everybody's taste, but it works for me.
