Oh my. He was indeed awful. I remember when Mido joined Boro on loan or something and he and Alves used to fight each other for goals. It actually got to a point where it looked like they were just going to tackle each other. Me and my cousin would just be watching MotD bending up laughing when the Boro highlights came around.
Mido - Another Eredivisie Premier League flop.
I would just say forget buying from the Eredivisie, but then you can't really say that, because this HORSE had no problems at all:
THE BIG MAN beat up two burglars who broke in to his home.
THE BIG MAN isn't a bitch on the pitch
And last but not least, THE BIG MAN is fucking solid.
Of his four convictions for assault he butted a Policeman, attacked a man on crutches and head butted somebody on the pitch which resulted in a three month stretch. Oddly enough he was never done for all the other times he twatted somebody on the pitch or grabbed them by the throat etc.
I did laugh when I heard the bugular story though.
Without trying to look over what is obviously a very painful time for the families, what are you thoughts re. the possibility of safe standing progressing what with the Hillsbrough report emerging? Prior to the clearing of the supporters from any blame, a lot of average fans when asked about sage standing would just blindly cite Hillsbrough as an example of standing=unsafe and leave it at that. In fact that Margaret Aspinall on more than one occasion (without trying to be overly disrespectful) was pretty dire in terms of putting forward a legitimate argument in her opposition to safe standing proposals aside from "asking for the reintroduction is disrespectful to the 96" (total bollocks imo but I appreciate her position will always lean to the other side for perfectly understandable reasons).
It's a weird one. Most of the families are against it and rightly so because it's probably the only way you can guarantee that something like Hillsborough won't happen again by having all-seated stadia. But when you look at it the problem was with the Police and the organisation. Properly organised I think standing could come back and be safe*. Germany (as usual) seems to have it right with seats that can come out.
*Having said that I don't think I trust the Police all that much even today.
