    @Kevin: I thought about it for a little while, and then I realised he’s just bored and has people to listen to him.

    I heard that the new owners are keen on rotating Captains!!!

    I laughed at that on here, can’t remember who it was?”

    Ah. That would be the late great Jesperfuglsang, sadly hung up his keyboard and took up vows an adherent of the Order of the Food Processor. A man of the cloth now, I hear. The Tablecloth that is.

    Betty I actually think the worst has happened and Welshie has run out of his famously side – achingly witty one – liners. It was always a danger because he was so prolific. I think prolific is the word I’m looking for. 😐

    @ Thump that’s a good point. It seems like a lot of celebs are doing similar things. They’re probably just bored and wanting to feel like they’re still relevant.

    Tsunki………I agree he is missed. I hope he’s OK . The last conversation I remember trying to have with him was about NDO’s . He became very stubborn and wouldn’t accept that he was mistaken . He subsequently took his bat and ball home and it’s been locked in the cupboard ever since.

    Re. Our Compatriot from the valleys he was last seen walking into a pole dancing bar and then realising it was in fact a kebab shop.

    Jesper, that’s the fella!, nice one.

    Watched all the games in his kitchen whilst doin the dishes, laundry, cooking and other household chores as detailed to him!!!

    Rotating Captains was a classic, thought he was on a wind up initially I recall, but it soon became evident he was earnest.

    Twas a proper belter, still makes me chuckle when thinking about it.

    Naptoon……… Aye it needs a bit of thinking about that one. I heard poor Welshie got fired from his job recently. He was working as a chef in quite a posh restaurant. He was summoned to the front of house where an irate customer asked him , ” How long did you leave this lamb to rest? ” ” Till it’s arse healed up “wasn’t the appropriate answer.

    No I don’t mind at all and neither would Welshie. Shame he’s not on tonight as he’s a game lad and likes a bit banta.

    You can always get in touch with him on his Website:-

    @ northumbrian

    I read that the other day. Left me wondering if Wolfgang Wolf ever met Gary and Phil’s Neville’s dad, who is called Neville Neville. Anyone within earshot when they introduced theirselves to each other would assume something just got changed in the matrix.

    In Forbes Middle East they have a story that it has been completed and another page that shows NUFC as part of PIFs recent investments. Strange that a lot of confirmation coming out of reputable middle East sources but nothing from the UK

    Same one I read ghost … Wouldn’t have a clue about money transfers at that level, or swapping ownership of companies but it is 5 working days away and you’d expect no official announcement can be made till all that is complete.

    Not sure how a deal of that magnitude would work either naptoon.

    Shame its from The Sun though and not a more reliable source.
