Hmmmm Not heard that one over here .....

Don't think there's anything in it, seen it in a few places, but this is the first I could lay my hands on link wise, hardly any credability to it!  Although he was drifting in from 66/1 to at the bookies, Whelan keeping his cards close to his chest for once, one of the bookies apparently has 6 possibles tied at 6/1 joint favourites.

Holland made eleven changes to their starting line up for the final group game against Spain.

Strange very strange...now with the 3-0 defeat they face a decent Italian side in the semi final rather than the easier (on paper) Norwegians.

 

Still take the Dutch to win the tournament but how far behind are we when Holland can field TWO  competitive elevens in the tournament and we struggle to get one decent eleven on the park.

I was round my late bros house yesterday and his wife gave me a bag of his old football programmes. Mainly involving Spurs, and Bradford City from the late 60's to the late 80'.

Fascinating stuff and there's a cup tie City v Spurs at Valley Parade from 1970 signed by Jimmy Greaves. - and you should see the Spurs team, legendary line up....no playing the reserves here. Incredible to see how football has changed from those days. Oh and nearly all of them call it soccer , they must be yanks or something

Loads of stuff...Hudds v Spurs 1971, Halifax v Spurs 1984...great reading.

 

Martin Chivers, Alan Gilzean........................

WTF is the FIFA Confederations Cup?

Not sure about its histroy, but now its the dress rehearsal for the World Cup, I guess it makes sure the host nation has everything in place 12 months in advance.

Champion from each Confederation plus World Cup holders and World Cup hosts.

But, yes, it's a trial run these days for the World Cup to test out how good the Brazilian police are at firing rubber bullets at peaceful protests.

I can't work that one out, reading the interviews yesterday seemed Kinnear was going out of his way to upset Pardew, perhaps its Ashley looking for a cheap way out of Pardews 8 year deal!

They keep the real bullets for when they're off duty.

Glad they scored - they really gave it a go and played positive Football, despite being massively outmatched. The crowd were brilliant in their support, too. Tahiti face Spain next... :unsure:
