Yanks take over the EPL!!

10 08 2010

I love Aston Villa. I love the US…. to think that I may get my two favorite things in the same bottle brings a tear to my eye. It’s like being able to drop a deuce in Vegas while I smoke a cigar and nibble on shrimp cocktail. Tommy likey. Tommy want wingy. Hey Chuck, you know that new sound you been lookin’ fo? Well, listen to this…

United States head coach Bob Bradley is being considered for a career-defining move to the English Premier League with Aston Villa!!!!

Oh, and screw Martin “Shizzah eater” O’Neil!!!





Villa’s in our blood, right Mr. Hanks?!

13 06 2010

I would first like to apologize for my long absence from posting. My only excuse is that I was busy fighting Chelsea fans from luring young boys into their vans down by the river. I’d like to say I fought the good fight and saved every innocent child… I did not. Chelsea has proven again that money can buy you wins, players, and apparently pre-pubescent kiddos. But I digress, yes that is THE Tom Hanks holding up his villa scarf proudly. Even Tom Hanks swears by the mighty villains!! Tom Hanks is one of the most successful actors of our time. He is known for his movies BIG, CASTAWAY, and PHILADEPHIA where he won an academy award for his portrayal of a Chelsea fan, and what its long term effects can be.

I just wanted to say that Mr. Hanks has class, charm and good taste in football clubs. Villa is in our blood. Much like Newcastle gets in your blood from sharing needles or inter-species mating.

So all I have to say is…

UP WITH VILLA!!!





Year In Review

9 05 2010

WOW what a season!!! As much as it hurts to say it but congrats to Mark and Chelsea FC on winning the title a few hours ago. But with THAT low point of the season this year has been filled with many wonderful moments for all of us here at Among The Thugs. This being our first season writing this blog I would just like to kind of recap some of those amazing times.

Remember when:

1. Andy came on board with Aston Villa and actually predicted the out come of a few high-profile matches. His crazy brand of wit and stupidity took us to new worlds. {what ever happened to Andy?}

2. Mark also came on board and chose to support the one team that he knew would receive the most hate from the rest of the Thugs. But Mark also added a great dimension to the site. Though not as witty and stupid as Andy, Mark came with his own sense of intellectualism that no one really understands and really doesn’t make a whole lot of sense. But now we get to hear Mark’s bla bla bla for an awful long time now so for all our dedicated readers I do apologise.

3.Among The Thug Radio!!! Brilliant!!!! Although we have only had a few shows it was an amazing find. You may all look forward to many for episodes of us trying to sound smart but really just making fun of Mark and Chelsea.

4.Sean……the brains behind this life fulfilling journey. If not for Sean and his posts on game play strategy and British definitions this site would simply be videos of Japanese game show where guys get hit in the balls and Man U fans named Benny.

5.Jason…..you posted the recipe of what has become one of my most favorite beers in the world…..and for that I owe you my life.

6. Shawn…this season saw you and me take the verbal abuse week after week after week of being in the Championship League. But through all that you and I have come out victorious my friend!!!! NEWCASTLE IS BACK AND BEAUTIFUL!!!! Thanks for being there with me…..

7. Louie………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Seriously, from all of us here at Among The Thugs we would like to thank all of you that have shown interest in our site. Thanks to all of you that have helped us become what you see today. A very special thanks to everyone at Pitchslap, EPL Talk, We Don’t Know Football, Just Arsenal.com. Thanks for all your support and feedback. We look forward to bringing all of you some interesting post during the World Cup.  Thanks again….





Aston Villa Changes Ownership

10 04 2010

Breaking News!!!  Aston Villa has had a change in the owners box, which now belongs to… Chelsea.  After a 3-0 victory at Wembley Stadium to advance to the FA Cup Finals it is clear that Chelsea FC is in charge against the Villains.  Aggregate score for the last 2 weeks?  10-1 Chelsea.

If we don’t own them, I don’t know who does.





Carling Cup Celebrities Give Back To Community

Last Saturday Manchester United defeated Aston Villa to retain the Carling Cup for a second year. All week we have seen the Man U stars appearing in various sit down interviews, speaking at schools and charity events, and also showing up on local and world wide television spots. Wayne Rooney spoke at a charity event to help raise funds for Portsmouth FC. Michael Owen talked to a local Manchester community arts and crafts association group that focuses on glass blowing. Patrice Evra got the honor of cutting the ribbon for a new acting school opening up right out side Manchester. Ji-Sung Park  was a guest contestant on a Japanese game show. He was playing for his favorite charity. Here is a clip of Mr. Park {he is the one in the pink robe}

The Poll Has Closed: Who is the fan favorite and best around?

8 02 2010

After retrieving  all our backed up data here at Among The Thugs and de-coding all the schematics that we acru on a daily basis, I was able to decipher the results of our “Thugs Fans Support…?” post. With an amazing response and surprising number of viewers, this post has been one of our biggest and most popular todate.

With over 11,500 voters here are the results:

-Arsenal comes in dead last with 2%

-Other 4% {wow….other beats Arsenal….maybe Louie could post about that!!!}

-Liverpool 6% {…..lemon juice to an open cut…..ouch}

-Man U 10% {suprising}

-Aston Villa 14% {with a side show like Andy I’m sure the villa numbers will continue to rise}

-Chelsea 28% {proves that there really are a lot of stupid people in this world}

-Newcastle United 36% { Not really suprising at all! We are the peoples club}

 With just over 4,100 votes supporting the magpies it is safe to say that the people have spoken…… and the best around is………..NEWCASTLE UNITED!!
