ToonAle
In attempting to pick myself up after ANOTHER freakin loss by the Magpies on Tuesday against Scunthorpe United, I came across a site that once I clicked onto the home page I swear I heard angels singing. TOON ALE!!!!! Now this is something that every supporter of every football club dreams about. Some clubs though may choose something other than beer.

For example
-Chelsea: Zima or a glass of Chardonnay
-Aston Villa: Arrogant Bastard {great beer and perfect name}
-Arsenal: ……they don’t get any beer until Louie posts!!
-Man U: Budweiser {they think they are the kings too}
-Liverpool: Ale Nino {a Thugs favorite}

And now Newcastle United has ANOTHER beer! Check out the site at www.toonale.co.uk.

GO NUFC!!! Now get your ass back on track!!!!!

Thanks to an inspired pre-match smack by Andy (see post below), Aston Villa picked Chelsea up early Saturday morning (remember we are West Coast stateside), put them in their golden high chair, got out their diamond encrusted silver spoon, and fed them a warm bowl of shutty stew.

This opened the path for United to sit at the summit of the league again. 2-1 victory later that is where we are.  Why bore you with the details, just enjoy the peace and quiet of the view.

It’s a nice view up here boys, a nice view.





PRE-SMACK: Chelsea vs Aston Villa

First of many installments of pre-smack. A chelsea fan did the sound to this one trying to stop a brotha from speaking. He failed. He is fired. Better sound in the future…





NEWCASTLE GAMBLES; recruits new blood. HOPE AT LAST!!!!!

Newcastle coach, Alan Shearer said Wednesday that the Muddled Magpies are in negotiations to acquire Habib Miyan as lead striker for their ailing team. When pointed out that the 137 year old New Delhi man had never actually played football in his life, and was in fact stone-cold blind, Shearer responded, “What he lacks in vision he makes up in speed. If we can land Habib “the terror” he’ll be the most athletic, talented player on our team. We’d be lucky to have him.”

Among the Thugs will keep you posted as the story… hold on, this just in… Habib Miyan has just passed away at the age of 137, just 3 weeks shy of his 138th birth—Hold on… we are now hearing that Newcastle is NOT rescinding their offer and are in fact still hoping Habib will start for them this weekend, despite his death.

Good luck with that Newcastle. Wish I could watch your games but Aston Villa relegated you to the depths of loser hell. Suck it.

Jacob sucks. Newcastle sucks.

refs

One of my biggest gripes with the game of football generally focuses itself on the performance of the referees.  Ferguson’s latest rant about this topic is priceless.  I wasn’t going to initially post on this subject (his comments were made immediately after the match versus Sunderland, read more here) since I felt that what he said was classic and didn’t need further comment.   I knew that his comments would cause a stir, and that eventually Sir Alex would offer an apology.  I thought that it would end there or maybe a bottle of wine and a few good laughs later it would all be forgotten about.

This was not the case.  After Ferguson offered his apology, Alan Leighton, the head of the refs, or also known as “the national secretary of the union Prospect that represents match officials,” claimed that the apology was “half-hearted”.

First of all, what a horribly gay title, and second of all of course it is half-hearted!  He didn’t mean it you utter moron!  This was the best quote from Ferguson:

“I was disappointed with the referee. He didn’t add on any time for the goal. He played four minutes and two seconds. He was also walking up the pitch for the second goal needing a rest. He was not fit enough for a game of that standard.”

Freakin’ classic.  Classic, because we have all yelled this at a ref sometime in our career no matter what sport we play or follow.  This caused quite a stir with referees and apparently caused Mr. Wiley to consider his future in refereeing.  Who knew they were so sensitive?  Leighton went on to react as if Ferguson called his 8-year old daughter fat:

“Referees are very fit…they have sports scientists who test them regularly throughout the season. They don’t just pass a fitness test at the start of the season. Their body fats and BMI are regularly monitored, there are get-togethers every two or three weeks where they are put through extensive training and testing.  I think the punishment should be a UEFA-type coaching ban, which is rather more than a touchline ban. Referees always accept decisions are going to be pored over – they have no problem with legitimate criticism.”

I can almost hear his high pitched defensive tone.  My daughter isn’t fat, she has a glandular disorder which causes her to retain water when she eats food that is high in sodium.  Sure Mr. Leighton, all of your children are in perfect shape and make no mistakes.
