TLW Second Club

Recommended Posts

To be clear, the idea was to have a thread where we can chat about some foreign team and its results, players and goings on.

 

Could have been a team in the Bolivian league, MLS, Swiss league or something. Just thought it would be interesting. It's not like we would be supporting them like we support Liverpool.

Dulwich Hamlet is a lovely club to follow. Partly owned by fans, real big and active on anti-racism activities. Champion Hill is a nice ground with good food truck options and watching the footy from the bar drinking proper Guinness is a very enjoyable. Crouchie played a couple of games for them when he started out.

I know a few of us will already have favourite second teams or teams we have soft spots for, but I thought maybe somehow we could pick a team to follow and talk about through the season. 

 

Not sure how we'd go about it, whether a poll would be best or not. Could we whittle it down to a league first and then pick from there? 

 

Any thoughts? 

I’m sure every one would agree to care for Brest….

Absolutely fucking no.

 

A strange, strange concept in my book.

Whats strange about showing an interest in some team in a completely different league that will never play Liverpool? I think its an interesting idea, could have a boss "away" every year at some 4th division Portuguese league and baffle the locals

Brechin City

Bad.

 

It was/is Celtic,but with the SPL now being largely pointless I probably don't have one any more. 

My Son in Law supports,and watches,Bradford City so I follow their results with mirth.

When we decide, can we get Half & Half scarfs done?


Better than that, half and half shirts. Better still, half and half full kit including two odd boots that are both different sizes.

Used to see a lot of Dulwich Hamlet in the late 90's when I followed Aylesbury United around the non league pyramid. Whilst a well known club, they didnt have the following they have now but I do remember one of their fans who did look like Jocky Wilson. Sadly I dont think he is with us anymore.

    • Why did she not pull him on air why go to Twitter? That Euro womens tournament had 3/4 good teams, cream of Europe. 
    • Another strange case of Desperate feeling the coins click.       Whisper it gently but he's 100% correct. Energy companies should really be given fuvk all. Lucky not to be in jail.
    • Well, I'd say capping yearly cost of the bills to 1.9k instead of the 4.2k at a cost of 29bn counts as helping people to be honest. I don't think it's an ideal plan - I'm not sure there is one that doesn't involve major policy changes as a fucking lot of debt - but this plan would go a long way to protecting people from serious hardship an debt, which I think is decent, and it does it at the expense of both the energy companies and by reducing inflation. So it's not terrible in terms of helping people or in terms of actually being implementable.  
    • I'd say that's part of the problem. Maybe I'm wrong, but suggesting that a player who captained Liverpool at the highest level, during its most successful era, should defer to someone who got 100 caps for England's women, when the standard was still far, far, far, inferior to the equivalent in the men's game, in comparatively low pressure games and events, is just delusional. If Souness was guest pundit on a women's game, and he was more capped and successful than the female pundit, would she be criticised in the same way for not deferring to him??    I like Carney, I think she's one of the best new pundits of either sex that's arrived in recent times, but she's no more the authority on the men's game that Souness would be on the women's game.   The writer of the above article blatantly benefited from the need to recruit women at the Echo. Without showing any significant writing or reporting ability, she got fast-tracked, got added to the Echo podcasts (where she spoke as if on a sponsored wafflethon) and then, astoundingly, got taken up by the Athletic. It's a tad cheeky for her of all people to make this kind of lofty denunciation.
    • Yeah it's a bit much to not only throw him into the team with little time to adapt but to throw him into a back 2 in a dysfunctional defence.   In a 3 at least you can compensate and shuffle him out wider instead of him just getting abused by taller players.   That's why I think giving him a Mascherano style role in the midfield would be a decent half way house for him. Takes the absolute defensive duties away for him and gives him license to be snapping into tackles further forward, if you want to move him further back down the line you still can.
