Re: Something to make you laugh....


Recommended Posts

Hope its not a titanic moment but this made me laugh, if it happens then Hughes should be playing Champions League next month.

Oi....nearly wet myself laughing at that. Will this return to the Premiership :shock: be back to Wrexham, Port Vale, Us or the great Citeeee for which he managed 3 subs appearances and no goals.

 

Better consult Killens Physio about any move......

 

Anyway see hes added to his repetoire of a dodgy hamstring by adding a dodgy knee.

I'm probably in a minority of one here, but I rated Killen.

 

OK, he had his injury problems but he was criminally under used by Ronnie in his last season here (Chasetown away instantly springs to mind).

 

Corney then turned just about every fan against him with his ill timed 'shoe in gob' rant as he was leaving.

 

Good luck to him if he makes it.

I thought he was a good player too. He is just an easy target as he is perceived to have cost the club money in some evil manner. Facts remain that he did nothing wrong whilst here, he just got injured a fair bit whilst on alot of money (which we offered to pay him knowing all the risks that go with a football player). He then left when we wanted him off the wage bill.

 

Doubt he'd cut it at the top level, but that is by the by.

 

NB. I'd wish him good luck but he went to the wrong side of Edinburgh for me to do that.

No mate Killen was a class act "when fit" but a lot of people see unfit to mean rubbish.

I used to have my car MOT'd by Aaron Wilbraham's father-in-law and he told me that he was gutted that Latics didn't take him on after his 1 month loan back in 2004.

 

Partly because he wanted to stay in the area and not move to Milton Keynes but also because he was absolutely made up with the drinking culture at the club. Apparently the early-hours poker sessions before games were legendary and you can have a guess who was at the centre of all this (it wasn't Shez :wink:).

 

So, as far as I'm concerned, yes he did do something wrong while he was here and I'm sure we'd have seen a lot more of him on the pitch if he'd been a little more professional in his time with us.

 

Corney's rant = justified.

Very good player when fit. Does he hold the club record for scoring in consecutive games (I think it was 7)? He either broke it or came close to breaking it.

 

Injuries have prevented him from playing at a higher level* (his goalscoring record warranted the chance), and will prevent him from playing at a higher level now.7

 

 

 

 

*The SPL is not a higher level than League One, with the exception of Old Firm games.

Quality when fit is ok and agreed. But personally I couldn't understand how he managed to drive up to Newcastle for a night out, get breathalised and banned in the process whilst having a sick note for his left hamstring (yet again). How do you improve that condition by operating the heavy clutch on your Audi. Footballer yes professional sportsman no.

 

By contrast Paul Scholes couldn't attend a charity function at the White Hart, Lydgate because he wasn't fit to play he wasn't allowed out and accepted it.

Yet another footballer imo, who has had ability (probably still got a teeny bit!), however, he had the pain threshold of a new born baby and desire to match the finest sick notes.

Obviously had the ability and a very good goals per game......those games work out about 10 a season though!! :shock:

 

Owd sicknote.
