  1. i believe he knew. it is also said that wwe knew something as they had extra medical care for him to make him confortable over the mania weekend. i am so sad though as Harry is 4 and he just started to love Ultimate Warrior, so he was a bit upset when we told him too.
  2. i have learnt that no matter how happy you feel, within an instant you can feel depressed i have learnt that i need to let my emotions go and stop holding them in, as it makes me unwell i have learnt that it is those you love who hurt you most with their venom
  3. oh dear....i bet he was popular! what is it with all of these injuries at the moment?
  4. i am of the opinion that there is no need for people to go snooping from the other site and posting things on there for no reason than to cause trouble. i have never understood this for as long as this site has been running it is an issue. also, i don't see why there should be disagreements on the site to make it better....it makes no sense to argue and be hurtful
  5. i dread to think what would happen match day if there was a problem, especially in the kop.
  6. it seems like a common thing Florist not paying their bills....money troubles? or just proving they are scub lol
  7. i dont tend to watch it. however i did when Joe and co were on. I find some of the presenters annoying
  8. no doubt there will be plenty more will be sacked before the end of the season. My predictions are: * 3 more from the prem * 4 from championship * 5 from League 1 (including Derry knowing NCFC and their manager/sacking ratios) * 2 from League 2
  9. glad judgey played well. but can we still stay up????
  10. ive been over at my parents in derby. had a fun day and took harry to a new toy stop opening
  11. i am glad you joined. i was on the MAD site but left after a short period, as I don't like the way members are always attacking others rather than being a supportive "family"

  13. Cameron demands a 'rethink' on England World Cup kit which will cost fans costs up to £90 Premier wades into row over launch less than a year after last new kitUrges Nike and Football Association to think again about costsSports minister Helen Grant says price is 'not right' and punishes fansJoey Barton says the £90 costs it is 'taking the mickey out of the fans' The Prime Minister said fans would 'welcome' the Football Association and kit makers Nike reconsidering the hefty costs which have been condemned as a 'rip-off' by fans. The government has insisted the charges are 'not right' and risk punishing loyal supporters who are 'the bedrock of our national game'. Scroll down to watch the England squad modelling the new kit +7Problem: Supporters fear they are being priced out of purchasing England's World Cup strips +7Worth it? The home and away kits go on sale for as much as £90 before the tournament kicks off Fans are unhappy that the new, costly kit has been launched less than a year after the last new strip went on sale. It was only last May that the previous home kit was released, which has been worn just seven times. The red away kit, released even more recently in June 2013, has had just two airings. The £90 shirt is identical to those worn by Roy Hodgson's side, while an adult 'stadium' England shirt is priced at £60 and shirts for children aged between eight and 15 cost £42, with mini-kits priced at £40. Sports minister Helen Grant took to Twitter to say: 'On £90 England football shirts for fans, it's not right. Loyal supporters are the bedrock of our national game - pricing needs a rethink.' +7Prime Minister David Cameron called for a rethink on the prices after a backlash from fans Mr Cameron's officials spokesman said the PM backed Miss Grant and called for Nike to think again. He told a regular Westminster media briefing: 'I'm sure all fans would welcome a rethink.' The spokesman said it was 'clearly not' for the Government to set the price of football shirts. But he added: 'It is a matter for the manufacturers and the FA, but does he agree with Helen Grant that £90 is a great deal of money for a replica shirt? Absolutely. 'Would a rethink by the manufacturer be welcomed by all fans? I'm sure that would be the case.' Labour's shadow sports minister Clive Efford said the price of the shirts was 'disappointing'. Justine Roberts, founder of popular parenting website Mumsnet, said: 'With the previous kit less than a year old and the away shirt worn only twice since then, it's not hard to see why some people might just think the FA are exploiting England fans by churning out yet another expensively priced version. 'When we asked our users about this this issue, an overwhelming majority thought football merchandise was a rip off. 'Instead of charging £60-plus for an 8-year-old’s kit, the FA could lead the way and produce a fairly priced kit so all England fans could afford to buy it and show support for the national team.' The latest shirts - to be worn at the World Cup in Brazil this summer - are going on sale on April 3, less than a year after the previous ones were released. Mark Perryman, a member of England Supporters Club, said: ‘They certainly don’t help themselves the fact two new shirts were introduced well before the 18 months. ‘They seem to have broken that rule. I thought it was a legal requirement. ‘The FA are in a difficult position, they can’t have a Nike home kit and Umbro away kit. ‘I suppose the FA’s excuse for releasing the kits so early is that it’s a World Cup year, but I’m sorry they should’ve thought about that when they signed the contract with Nike. It’s crazy.’ Watch Gerrard, Rooney and Co model England's World Cup kit +7Added on top: If fans want to get added lettering with their shirt they'll need to pay more money +7Not happy! Queens Park Rangers midfielder Joey Barton isn't best pleased at the price of the shirt In the mid-2000s replica England shirts were on sale for £30 almost as soon as they were released.The prices have since risen steeply, but they are dependent on results on the field. Following England’s 4-1 defeat to Germany in the 2010 World Cup the price for the replica shirts worn in that tournament plummeted. Perryman, who has been a member of the ESC for 18 years, added: 'At the end of the day people will vote with their chests. If England are doing well, people will buy it. ‘If they lose to Italy in the World Cup it will drop to a fraction of that £90 price.’ Outrage from punters and those involved in the game poured out across social media websites. Joey Barton said on Twitter: ‘£90 for the new England shirt is taking the mickey out of the fans. When will it stop? ‘I wonder what ‘magic’ technology it has this time that forces the price up but doesn’t actually work. +7Coming thick and fast: These are the second new kits to have been released in the past year by England ‘Also [it’s] technology that the supporters don’t need. When will brands start to listen? Fans just want to feel a part of it. Part of the tribe. ‘[it’s] appalling, in my opinion. Football again allows commercialism to eat away at its soul. Something has got to give. ‘Its literally a white sports top with an England badge on. Costs about £2 pound tops to make in some sweatshop in the East.’ Stan Collymore added: ‘Nike have gone down American route. A “Match†shirt and “stadium†shirt, like NBA do. A joke, just make one please, £90 is a rip off.’ The FA are not allowed by UK and EU law to get involved with setting the price of the replica shirts. A spokesman said: 'The FA is a not-for-profit Organisation that puts £100m back into the game every year. 'It is through relationships with partners such as Nike that we are able to maintain that level of investment in football. 'The FA's policy is to avoid any involvement with how its partners or licensees set their prices, so as to avoid any risk of or implications of price fixing.' Nike have pointed out that the £60 replica kit is the one aimed at fans, whereas the £90 shirt is the exact one worn by the players with the full technological additions. The prices are recommended to retailers who are able to set their own value. A spokesman also confirmed that the kit cycle would return in future, saying: 'The previous kit marked the start of the partnership between England and The FA and the timing of the agreement put us in an unusual circumstance with regards to kit cycle. 'A normal kit cycle will resume with the new kits – the home kit will stay the same for two years, and the away for one year.'

  14. nope were not buying it. maybe once it drops after we lose. but we plan on getting Harry a kit from H & M, every world cup year they do good "copy" kits for England, Spain, Brazil, Portugal, Holland and Germany. They are abit plainer but they are only £8ish for shirt and shorts....And when kids fall over and he is enjoying playing football at the moment (so mud and grass stains will be everywhere) it makes NO sense paying those sorts of prices. Tony: I heard it was going to be £90 also
  15. ok, glad to see interest. I was offering to take on the job of setting it up, but if someone is already doing it I shall leave it in their hands
  16. Gosh this week is a busy one. We have a family wedding on Saturday....I have my dress but still need shoes (darn it shoe shopping ) I also have my nieces and nephews easter eggs to pick up....and Harry's easter present (Which involves going to an opening of a new toy store....it's not like it is going to be busy is it ). But to de-stress I plan on doing some more smash booking (abit like scrap booking but more fun) as well as crochet. Which I have been doing like mad. I also have orders from my son, nieces and nephew to make some more goodies for them on my loom....mainly minion keyrings and bracelets. What are you all up to this week / weekend?
  17. I was wondering are we doing a world cup prediction league? Once the 'main' season is over I thought maybe we could do a world cup league...plus it keeps us all remembering the site and non-NCFC footie fans may fancy a go aswell
  18. So what do we all think of this one? I read this an was abit puzzled at first but I don't really know what to make of it. See link Below: - David Beckham and Class of '92 stars 'to front £2bn takeover of Manchester United bankrolled by Arab oil cash' - Manchester United stars said to be involved in multi-billion pound takeover - The players may be used to front bid funded by oil-rich Qatari royal family - Consortium are hoping to purchase 90% stake from club's US owners - Joel and Avram Glazer are said to have lost interest in Manchester United - But the club says it has not yet had any formal approach about a takeover http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2590555/David-Beckham-Class-92-stars-2bn-takeover-Manchester-United-bankrolled-Arab-oil-cash.html
