The Official Soccer (Or Call It Football If You Really Have To) Thread

I think we now have enough Brits and other assorted folks from places outside the US and Carada to start a thread dedicated to the World's Game. So here it is.

First topic of discussion: I got word form YouFirst that Newcastle have sacked Graham Souness. So what took them so long?

Not surprising. They finished 14th last season, and are now in 15th place. Bad luck Michael Owen broke his foot.

But this may pave the way for Alan Shearer to (possibly) become manager/assistant manager next season.

Ahhh, Cat. 'Bout time we had a thread for FOOTBALL, LOL!

I have no idea what took us so long, maybe they were hoping for a miracle turn around. But last night's match (terrible...) just made up everyone's mind, he had to go.

Now we have to find a replacement to get us somewhere! Some decent defenders wouldn't go unwanted either...

14th, the worst we've ever finished!

You're so right about Shearer, that's what the fans want!

Can't be a one man team though...we're talking about a huge Premiership club with a squad of what, 25 players? Can't blame the Owen injury. Souness obvioulsy knows his football, but doesn't inspire the players.

And I agree, an opening for Shearer...who I believe hinted he'd carry on playing now that Owen is on Tyneside?

ETA: Yes, a...it should be called the Football thread....but the title did make me giggle.

I just checked. Youth academy director Glenn Roeder is taking over "for the immediate future", and will be assisted by Shearer this Saturday at home vs. Portsmouth. Link to NUFC website

Hmmm, it'll be a shame to lose Shearer as a player, but we'd have a manager with first hand experience if he took up the job.

ETA: Thanks for the link camelsmoker!

No prob. I'm a Hammers fan myself (BTW Roeder used to manage West Ham). No offense to the Geordies.

Re: The Official Soccer (Or Call It Football If You Really Have To) Thread

Anybody see Man U v Blackburn? As a BBurn supporter I was loving it, those feckers knocked us out of the Carling Cup. I think all of Man U hate Robbie Savage as well, and TBH I can't blame em. Anyone else think that he wouldn't be so aggressive if his surname wasn't Savage?

On the subject of Souness, what do people see in him? He did crap all at Blackburn and Newcastle. Piss poor manager if you ask me.
