That win felt good. Actually played a bit of ball.

Missed it as I was up in the in laws place.

Spank Luxembourg and put it up to those handsome Portuguese (the women not so much, strangely) and we might give him another run at it.

Yeah I'd be happy with 4 points in the next two, surely would get us third which was the aim at day one.

Meanwhile, the US somehow managed to beat Costa Rica thanks to an own goal. Absolute joke of a campaign. In the six games they've played in the qualifiers, 25 players have made their debuts. Never mind the fact there's already been the CONCACAF Nations League, and the Gold Cup this year, nah, let's start bringing players through during an actual qualification tournament that means something. And then wonder why we lose to Panama. Oh wait, bcause we're more interested in playing our third rate MLS players than the guys who actually play in proper leagues in Europe.
Get qualified first, then you can start pissing around handing Chuck Kickaball his debut.

Steve Bruce gets the chop - hardly suprising, not entirely without reason but yet I feel the man is a bit hard done by. Seems most NUFC fans had the knives out from the start - hard for a local boy to deal with but he also managed Sunderland at one point so...

Some deluded lads on Twitter reckon that Zidane is on his way there. Can't see it.

In other football news - Liverpool tried their best to give me a heart attack again last night. Serious nerve from the referee to reverse the penalty decision.

This statement from Newcastle about the fans wearing Arab headdress at matches is not surprising, but absolutely pathetic.
