    Can’t say I’m that fussed about Longstaff tbh. He’s looked alright, but nothing amazing. If the right offer came in, I’d probably accept it too at this stage.

    Grrr….

    Weirdly enough Dubai invented a cocktail – the Bullfrog, now I’m sure ctommo will back me up on this cos I’m fairly sure he’s been to Rockbottom in Bur Dubai – where it was invented.

    Loads of ice then equal parts vodka, tequila, rum, gin, Blue Curaçao, then a touch of lemon juice, top it up with Red Bull.

    I’ve drank it, I don’t mind it, I’d rather have a Long Island Iced Tea as I’m not a fan of Red Bull.

    Right offer?
    That’s the point he’ll go for 400k…. that’s not a right offer for him.

    I think matty has more potential than his brother. Can’t believe we’d want him to leave….. premier league dragging their feet is not helping the running of our club at all.

    Thump, he’s not world class by any means but he’s only just turned 20. Even looking vaguely competent in the prem at that age is impressive, and Matty has had some moments where he’s looked like he’s ready to step up. Needs to find some consistency and maybe a bit more of an understanding of the game and league, but that all comes with experience. With the right coaching and enough hard work I think he could be a great player, realistically though most players don’t make that next step, and most likely he will still turn out to be a good squad player for us.

    There have been reports circulating that Ashley has refused to allow the consortium access to the players, via Bruce, while the deal is not approved. There is a few players out of contract this summer. The PL dragging their heels is preventing these players and the club from sorting their futures. No good.

    Novocastrian,

    That wouldn’t be good news at all. Could backfire very badly. I hope he’s got a plan in place.

    IrishRob last thread,

    B&S is Barker & Stonehouse, a posh furniture store next to SJP. Used to go to the Companions Club a few doors along for a drink after the match sometimes.

    Gothmog’s pjs,

    Can’t say I have any strong opinions on him compared to other sports journalists, but they are all in the same industry, and it requires them all to fabricate and speculate pretty wildly to keep the stories coming. I try to take it all with a pinch if salt unless they have some solid evidence to support their claims.

    Micky, we really must meet up for that beer when we find a new watering hole.

    Long Island iced tea is absolutely my cocktail of choice.
    Rockbottom, christ. I first sampled the bulllfrogs in the ramee rose tecom. That was a night with a story to tell. In fact pretty much every night on those bulllfrogs has left its mark on me in one way or another.

    Jibberly,
    No room for Matty because the squad would be full of internationals??? As Muz pointed out, we’re only allowed 17, you really should leave this blog to people who know what they’re talking about or at least willing to learn, blaggards and conmen have no place!!!

    Don’t get why the consortium are not putting pressure on premier League for an answer the process has to come to a conclusion so that everyone can move on
    They must have plans in place and everyday that goes by the plans would have to be put back
    The pl can’t just put bid on back burner while starting season back up
    Ashley wants his money

    Bitters is lethal. Don’t recommend drinking it from the bottle. I think there’s a reason it has those slow pouring lids on there

    I thought it was invented in the Double Decker bar not Rock Bottom? But happy to be educated on it.

    The Friday brunches at Double Decker used to be INSANE

    We should not be losing players like Matty for a pittance and before we get to see his real potential. No strategy, just incompetence. Get the new people in so we can start making some sensible decisions.

    Nozzle I should say, rather than lid. I don’t think the makers considered that a mischievous drunken me might remove that nozzle.

    Just a note on Matty L

    Looks like the top earner at Udinese is on around 28k euros, so if the offer of £30k is accurate, they would be making him the highest earner at the club. A 20yr old with 7 appearances.

    smells a bit off, almost like an agent trying to pressurise the club into paying him more by exagerating his alternative offers…

    Kev, Obviously that’s why it’s used by the drop lol. But jokes aside it is only an alcohol extraction of herbs and orange peel around 40-50% if I’m not mistake,. For Angostura.

    Think it’s clear as to your thoughts as to what’s happening in US, not surprised by your misinformed comment as I think it comes from a more sinister agenda you may have (in my opinion)

    I think Yedlin hit the nail on the head, taking a knee is about the words you’ll read toward the end of yedlin’s statement, the national anthem or flag isnt what they are refusing to stand for, it’s the injustice toward minorities who feel they’ve been let down by the country as a whole. I’ve copied and pasted it for you below

    I remember being in elementary school, and having to recite the Pledge of Allegiance which ends “.. with liberty and justice for all.” Every American needs to ask themselves, is there “liberty and justice for all” and if their answer is yes, then they are part of the problem.

    Take a look at the planned demonstrations, nobody turned up and out of embarrassment were cancelled
