  1. This is the biggest thing to me. As a fan of a Championship club, hosting a big team in pre season was something to look forward to as a fan, and a bit of a (in Barnsley's case, much needed) financial boost. It already feels like the big clubs are monopolising the money in football, and this is another blow to the smaller clubs down the pyramid.
  2. Can I ask the ones who support the Premier League teams, do any of you actually give a shit about these "prestige" friendlies everyone is playing out in America/China/Other money spinning place???
  3. You might be right, and a decent colour announcer on Smackdown might be the answer to explaining and getting his character/gimmick over...
  4. I've said it before on here, but I have no idea what Nakamura is supposed to be. I've never watched any Japanese wrestling, so barring small clips had never seen him before NXT, but all I hear is him called the "Rock Star", but no explanation of why he is a rock star. he doesn't sing, or act, like one and the only link is that he looks off his head all the time. He hasn't even got a rock music entrance theme, so I'm completely lost. For me, he needs some vignettes or sit down interviews to explain his character to those of us that had no knowledge of him before he moved stateside....
  5. I'm not a fan of all the tippy tappy stuff either. Both Keith Hill and Lee Johnson tried it when they were manager of Barnsley and it was just turgid and frustrating to watch. Paul Heckingbottom, our current manager plays an attractive, quick direct game using quick wingers and full backs and it's great to watch...
  6. Completely agree, It's one of the aspects of the modern game that I'm not a fan of. The link up play between the likes of Sheaer & Sutton or Sheringham & Kilnsmann was brilliant watch. I think it's one of the reasons that I enjoyed Leicester's title win so much(despite a strong dislike for them because of the underhand way they have overspent and cleared debt in the past), because they went back to the 442 with some proper strike partnerships...
  7. Nice one, thanks! I had a look and couldn't see any with the logo's on the photo's and thought I was doing something wrong. It makes sense not to include them in the photos though... Is there any particular sellers on there to go for, or any to defiantly avoid?
  8. Are they actual fake Ray Bans? With the logo on and shit like that or just shades made in their stye? Reason I'm asking is I'm after some sun specs for my holiday next year where my brother in law is getting married. He's a footballer, so most of the guests will be the same, and so pretty well off financially. I want something that won't make me look like the peasant I am, but don't fancy paying full on Ray Ban or Oakley money...
  9. I know you being an Arsenal fan, it's not the sort of thing you want to hear, But Kane has got to be one of the best "old school" strikers around hasn't he? Certainly the closest England have had to Shearer-esque striker for a long time anyway...
  10. Could it be something to do with it being on the performer's skin before any contracts etc were signed? Or could it just be that the copyrights don't extend to tattoo's? Again, I've no actual idea and just throwing these out there, as it seems that WWE in particular have had loads of folk with band/brand tattoos over the years and nothing has ever come back on them as far as I am aware? Strowman is the latest I have noticed, with that Superman tattoo on his arm. With the company having experience of dealing with comic book trademarks from back the the Hulk/Marvel days you would think they would know if his "S" would cause an issue... P.S. I know that it isn't actually supposed to be a letter "S"...
  11. Thats a shame, I remember me and the mates loved the Max Headroom show as kids. I remember the origin story TV film freaked more than a few of us out at the time...
  12. One of the best sights in cricket that...a part time bowler that comes on to bowl a bit of filth and ends up breaking a big partnership. Brilliant!
  13. Samson has quickly become my personal favourite! The lad is great... One guy I'm not getting at the minute is Big Cass. I mean, his feud with Enzo is decent, and he and 'Show might have an entertaining big bloke match but he doesn't come across as a monster heel to me. Not sure if its the shit facial hair, or wanky stringy, slapped back long hair but barring the size he just isn't intimidating enough to me. Better gear might help though, as those big, Simon Cowell high pants do nothing for him...
  14. I'll give that a try! Thanks garynysmon!
  15. We have to book for Santorini in Greece for next June as my Mrs' brother has decided to get married there. Not been abroad in about 9 years, so I'm a bit out of the look with websites etc. A few questions though, if someone would be so kind as to help: a) Where is the best online to book? b) If anyone has been to Santorini, is there any recommended hotels? We will be a family of 5 going(2 Adults and 3 Kids), and I am disabled, so have mobility issues, so a kids club would be ideal, and we would like half board at the very least...
