The rolling Football thread for Season '12-13 might as well start off with the same intro as did the original rolling Football thread:

There are quite a lot of football fans on MN, and also loads of football-haters. If we hide here in Dadsnet, none of the detractors will find us. But if they do, they are welcome to come here and moan.

You don’t have to be male to post here, of course. (No-one would say women can’t post in the Dadsnet section, just like no woman would EVER say men aren’t welcome on Mumsnet…)

Footy fans please sign in with

1.Which team you support.
2.Which team(s) you loathe.
3.How you are getting your kids to follow the correct team.
4. A thought on the season (Premiership/Championship/Champions’ League/FA Cup/League Cup/(el clasico?)/(Euro 2012?)

Utd should get to the safety of 40 pts today.

Pan Sat 15-Dec-12 17:44:26

On BBC - Anfield, not so much fortress, more gift shop.

SomeTiggyPudding Sat 15-Dec-12 18:30:18

I think you'll find that Liverpool won the statistics!

77% possession.
27 shots compared with 11.

Pan Sun 16-Dec-12 08:51:16

ok. More a gift shop, with some very hard-working

Tasty European nights coming up? Read that the end of the world tomorrow has been postponed, as God wants to see Man U v Real Madrid.

BelfastBloke Fri 21-Dec-12 16:30:19

I thought God played for Real Madrid?

Pan Fri 21-Dec-12 17:44:19

No, that's just one of the angels. God plays for Barcelona.

Sorry guys - I've been off line for a few months. Only just resurfaced. I'm still here.

Hi, GiveMeSomeSpace.

I am mourning the loss of Christmas footy, as Arsenal v WestHam has been called off due to the Boxing Day tube strike.

Usually at Christmas me, my mates, and the elderly racists who sit behind us, all pass around whiskeys. S'nice.

KenDoddsDadsDog Sun 23-Dec-12 10:24:01

That's rubbish!!
Man City for us ......,.

Pan Thu 27-Dec-12 11:47:34

Well that was all very entertaining, wasn't it? SAF - you've gotta love him, haven't you?

KenDoddsDadsDog Thu 27-Dec-12 11:50:03

Christmas Party with Marty!

Pan Sat 29-Dec-12 13:12:12

And doing pretty well against Tottingham. What's going right??

fwiw there was a really good piece on R5 Live last night on the work of the Hillsborough Panel, chaired by the Bishop of Liverpool, pointing up how at a time when police, politicians, journalists, judges cannot be trusted, the Church steps in, and could this be a blueprint.

ManU - it'd be really nice to totally slaughter a team some time....

Pan Sat 29-Dec-12 15:34:47


KenDoddsDadsDog Sat 29-Dec-12 16:30:27

Balls! Need Arsenal to slaughter that wee North East team now !

KenDoddsDadsDog Sat 29-Dec-12 19:34:31

7th Heaven !

BelfastBloke Sun 30-Dec-12 06:15:30

Now that was delicious. Naturally it was that game I let my friends have my tickets. But I still saw it in the pub. Theo can definitely play as a striker, and as the Guardian said, Thierry Henry should sue him for copyright over that first goal. I actually think that signing Henry for a few months, like last year, would strengthen Theo's desire to stay at Arsenal. Henry loves the club so much, and Theo admires Henry so much, that it could help.

See what depths I've sunk to over our best players leaving; how pathetic I've become?

KenDoddsDadsDog Sun 30-Dec-12 20:18:47

Walcott's goal was unreal. Pure instinct to keep going . Loved it.

Pan Sun 30-Dec-12 20:29:39

Which sort of brings us to the speedo-wearing Bale. At 6 foot of muscle and bone, having the slightest of 'contact' does not warrant falling to the floor.

KenDoddsDadsDog Sun 30-Dec-12 23:09:55

He went down like a sack of spuds against Gardner - says it it to 'prevent injury'
On a lighter note, looks like Ba is going to Chelsea. Another issue for that wee NE club.

DanFmDorking Thu 03-Jan-13 18:03:38

Hands up those hoping that Demba Ba would sign for Swansea, so when he scores, thousands of Welshmen would scream


BelfastBloke Fri 04-Jan-13 07:11:09


KenDoddsDadsDog Fri 04-Jan-13 08:56:06

I want hom to sign for us and score our derby day winner.
I have had massive fun at work though talking to all of my colleagues about their "wee north east team"

I am assuming GiveMeSomeSpace is otherwise engaged today.
