We are uncomfortable with "happy". And not me. I tend to make things uncomfortable with my need to grind on others.

But in general, we get a bit happy and we find a way to disrupt that. We would rather chase a rumor that makes us mad/sad/etc. than listen to truth that is good.

I imagine a lot of clubs have supporters like this.
yeah, us Spurs fans ... doom & gloom is in our DNA. thats why our club crest is chicken-little standing on a ball when the sky is falling.

Dawkins will be given an opportunity to prove himself he is a personal fav at the club of a few coaches and was very impressive in December 2012 when he returned for training. Really hope he makes it, real deserving person.

Funny story about Dawkins loan to Villa. Villa originally contacted San Jose as nobody realised Dawkins was contracted to us. They then contacted us and asked us for him on a real cheap loan (at this stage Dawkins was due to move back to San Jose permanantly they even had interviews and press conferences complete! You can find these online im sure.) We worked everything out in about 45 minutes as it was against the clock and we were getting a 100k loan fee. After signing him one of their officials said they were ecstatic to get a young right winger to cover injured marc albrighton.

Turns out Aston Villa signed Dawkins off of an internet scouting report! They had no idea he was 25, no idea he was actually a central midfielder and no idea he is left footed! This is why he got so little game time as they did not need a player in that position.

Not as funny as George weahs "cousin" who played under Souness but funny all the same.

Loving your input mate. Fantastic to have someone adding some anecdotal colour to this forum. Hope you'll hang around for a long time.

Just to be clear I am not here to irritate anybody or step on anyones toes. I chat football aswell as sharing info. If I irritate anyone I will leave no questions asked but you all seem like a great bunch. :)

Well, perhaps not all of us... most of us though.

Hell, who'm I trying to kid... some of us!

Is that some sort of new and fancy approach to replace the substitute boards? :eek:
Now your know why I don't post much, to dangerous driving and too tired when I get through all the days post, hence my plea for the spam and arguments that start all because people have their differing opinions
