Definitely.

When the next generation of hydrogen solutions comes it might be time to abandon all fossile use for vehicles.

Would just be typical if we were just bought by an Arab Sheik now and then 12 months later he goes bust because of noone wants his oil anymore! grin

I completely understand this and feel the same. Football has been my life since my Dad took me too my first LFC game at the age of 2.

I hate the way the game has changed, how diving is now accepted, how you can't tackle and most importantly how money has completely ruined the game.


I agree 100% old son. The worst thing is how spoilt and selfish money has made the players. Rich celebrities that dont even seem to care if they play or not - most important are cash, instagram and sports cars

What do you mean you can't tackle, players can still tackle as long as they don't break legs. I remember what Maradona had to endure in his days which was unacceptable.

Mike Ashley has just officially put Newcastle up for sale, so looks like some sort of deal is in the offing:

I guess we will see if Amanda and her Billionaire friends were really after Newcastle?

When was the last time you saw a proper full blooded 50/50 in the Premiership which didn't result in a foul one way or the other, if not both players rolling around claiming injuries? Players are scared to go into slide tackles now because opponents would rather fake injuries in the hope of getting an opponent sent off.

Remember the Roy Keane and Patrick Vieira battles, it was a same of weakness to stay down hurt and those guys used to seriously smash each other. Nowadays I can think of plenty of players who think they are hard but as soon as they get touched they hit the back like a sack of s**t. It's pathetic.

Liverpool are a prime example, when was the last time any of our players put in a thumping tackle? Who in our team is actually capable of doing it?

I see tackles every game and the last one I can remember is Lukaku on Gomes where he should have received a yellow card. Kante is nowhere like Viera and Keane physically or the way they play, however, he gains as many balls in the midfield without going to break legs.

So to answer my question you don't see full blooded 50/50 tackles anymore?

I don't recall Keane or Vieira aiming to break legs, with the exception of Keane's tackle of Haaland which was disgraceful. The point is these two were great footballers but also hard as nails when it came to making or taking a tackle, the modern footballer isn't of the same breed or mentality.
