The Football Thread

Post by Si » Wed Feb 06, 2013 5:44 pm

Who do you support? How's it going?

I'm Hull City. For a few times this season i've seen the best football City has ever played. Other times we've been very, very poor.

At the moment we're joint 2nd in the Championship and a couple more Egyptians are on their way to strengthen our squad. Hopefully they'll be the final piece of the Premiership promotion jigsaw.

And hopefully old sockface (nice one, Dan :) ), and his Leicester mob will have a bad run and lose in the play offs :lol:

Brighton on Saturday. Up the Tigers :)

I support Aberdeen. This season has been rubbish, as per usual.

Liverpool Fan Brendan Rodgers needs time and patience not that you get that these days in football things are moving slowly in the right direction :)

Plus today's news is rather gutting thanks for the memories Carra :)

Being in Nottingham there's always the obvious two teams to choose from.. but Footy isnt in my interests im afraid.. a mate of mine is a big Forest' fan.. that team has been taken over more times than a grandad driver!

Sunderland supporter, exiled in the Midlands. We've been a bit hit and miss this season. Our current league placing is roughly where I expected to be though, so can't complain too much, unless we have another slump.

Watford 2 - 2 Crystal Palace (Fri)
Huddersfield 0 - 0 Cardiff
Peterborough 2 - Leicester 1

A late kick off for us and we could have made the most of it. But no, we didn't. 1-0 to Brighton. They owned the first half. We improved in the second. But Evans gave away a free kick, our wall was wrestled out of sight and it's 1 - 0.

I was typing a rant, but oh well, one defeat don't equal a disaster.

Well done, Brighton.

I'm off to Wembley in a few weeks, to watch my Dads team Bradford City hammer Swansea in the Capital Cup. My parents don't live in the UK, so they are flying in just to go watch the match, and as my Mom wants to spend time with my kids, I'm off down for the day in her place..........

Good luck. I really mean that! Would love to see you guys beat a Prem team to win a trophy. Also have a big soft spot for Phil Parkinson. Lovely man.

My dads old company used to sponsor Bradford City, and his old boss is now a director of the club, so could be a great day out. The last time I went to Wembley it was the older one which has now been relocated elsewhere.. :lol: ....to watch Halifax get hammered by Wigan in the Rugby League Challenge Cup back in 1987/88!

Anyway, how'd Hammers do?

Ha get supporting Hull FC.

I went to new Wembley for the 2008 play-off final. Awesome weekend that.

Ha, I love wayne, don't like the Hammers at the moment after reading some total toolheads (no pun intended) blog on them :|

Glad Liverpool got beat last night though, ha.

Now if only Leicester can go on a beaten run....

But like the Murphy's, i'm not bitter :lol:
