all footie banter goes here
The Premiership starts on Saturday =D to get this thread in the mood im gonna do details for my team Sunderland - These include Signings, Fixtures etc...

Please note - All teams welcome not just from the North east.

Sunderland

Today Sunderland have announced their tenth summer signing – Czech defender Ondrej Celustka on a season Long loan, hes a Right back but can play across the full defence.

Of course their are the 9 other players we have signed:

Duncan Watmore - Gone to under 21's
David Moberg Karlsson
Modibo Diakité
Valentin Roberge
Cape Verde Cabral
Vito Mannone
Jozy Altidore
El-Hadji Ba
Emanuele Giaccherini

Di Canio has confirmed he wants 3 players before Fulham now it looks down to 2... Huddlestone and Fabio Quagliarella look to be our next targets.
We still need a left back as Liverpool has being rumoured to off pulled out the race for Aly Cissokho, Who he was close to joining by everyone... Sunderland should make a bid as we were rumored to be after him.


This is my team for Fulham:

Mannone
Celustka Diakité O'Shea Colback
Cabral Giaccherini Johnson
Sessègnon
Altidore Wickham


Fletcher is injured.
Cattermole and Bardsley have no future with the Club

Yup, Berwick Rangers' season got off to a cracking start with a 3-2 win in the Ramsdens Cup over Championship side Livingston before bombing with a 5-0 defeat to Cowdenbeath in the League Cup, followed by 1-0 defeat in the League away to Clyde. Still, the good thing about Division 2 of the Scottish League is that you don't usually get relegated if you come last.

I was at the Greenock Morton v Cowdenbeath game at the weekend. Cowdenbeath were shocking (the plan was to see Celtic V St Mirren until Celtic decided to play Liverpool in the friendly). How they got 5 against Berwick going from Saturdays performance is beyond me.
Saw the Hearts v Hibs game on TV and that was poor too.

I'd love to go to one of the lower division Scottish games. Or even an English one. Love the atmosphere in the traditional style football grounds. Loads more character than what you get in the modern day.

Go watch Gateshead or Whitley Bay, they play some half decent football, unless wanna go see Hartlepool get hammered
Never been to Cappielow until the weekend, but it was great. Standing on the terraces, alongside the pitch, propped up against the advertising hoardings.
Inches from the action.
Coke, poured from bottles, served in polystyrene coffee cups. £15 for an adult, sure it was something like £3 for kids.

There was no atmosphere at all mind.

Livingstone and Falkirk all have decent stadiums and aren't that far from Edinburgh if your fancying a Scottish game. Obviously Berwick are even closer.
St Mirren are in the Spl, but dead easy to get to on the train from Glasgow, just like Motherwell is and some of the teams from within Glasgow itself are within spitting distance of Queen Street or Glasgow Central.

Hartlepool is a good day out. Gateshead are canny too, except your miles away from any action.

One of my brothers flew down to Cardiff to watch the Hartlepool Play Off Match v Sheff Wed a few years back and said the atmosphere on the way down, was electric.
I've always supported Gateshead since an early age. My Dad signed me up in the Supporters Club on the day I was born.

Anyway, we started the season on Saturday with a 3-1 defeat away to Kidderminster. It was always going to be a hard game for us. I'm looking forward to the new season though. We've made some decent signings over the summer who should do very well. I know the quality of the matches isn't as good as the Premier League but it is still good and there's always a very good atmosphere.

Tomorrow, we're home to Grimsby Town. Kick-off is 7:45pm. On Saturday, we're home to Barnet, therefore meaning we'll see Edgar Davids Smile
I've been to watch Gateshead a few times and the atmosphere is interesting to say the least. There's a hardcore of vociferous supporters but, as Andreos points out, being situated so far away from the action in a ground that is almost empty leads to a sense of surrealism in my view. You're there, but at the same time somewhere else, like an echo of football match as opposed to being at one would be best way I could describe it. There was some talk, a few years back, about building a new ground opposite the Civic Centre on Prince Consort Road. Does anyone know whatever came of that?

I was going to go to the two Berwick Rangers Vs. Rangers matches at Shieldfield last season. Unfortunately, I don't think that opportunity is going to arise again anytime soon.

We are still looking at getting a new stadium there but there have been a lot of unwanted delays. There hasn't been anything said for a few months now which is disappointing. However, I've heard a rumour there's going to be a big announcement soon.

I think they should go back to Redheugh Park.

That ground's had its fair share of history over the years.

Gateshead or Whitley Bay, sod that Tongue

Come and watch the best attended North East non-League, Darlington, won the Northern League last season, and about to tear up the NPL Division 1 North Big Grin
Anyone else been looking forward to England playing the Auld Enemy tonight...

14 years in the making...

I don't care for International games anymore, but there is no bigger game or bigger rivalry than that of England and Scotland
Gave up with England a long time ago.

When players give more of a toss about playing for their clubs in the money pit that is the Champions League rather than pulling on the whites of their country, then serious questions need asking about their attitudes.
I feel more affinity towards Scotland than I do the rest of England. Anywhere south of Ferrybridge services might as well be a different country to me.

Me as well, for the most part, there is only 2 games at International Level I like to watch or look forward to

England v Scotland
England v Germany

I have a soft spot for Northern Ireland these days as well
