    Newcastle (A) - Sat 30th Apr 2022 (12:30pm)

    Season 85/86 we were needing Everton to drop points for us to win the title. Oxford beat them & we beat Leicester on April 30th. Nice if we could see a similar swing today

    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    Grimsby, Chris Kirkland at his statuesque best
  3. Felt the game had hints of that Roma home leg in 2001 after we'd won away 2-0. Not the worst omen in the world given the trophy haul that followed

    TLW History Thread

    More history you were never taught in school. Battle of Bamber Bridge Jun 24, 1943 – Jun 25, 1943 On this day in 1943 black American soldiers faced off with white American Military police during World War II on British soil. Yes you read correctly black American soldiers had to fight their own white American soldiers, while in England, where they were fighting for the world. Why? Because the English town of Bamber Bridge in Lancashire was not segregated so they treated the black soldiers like all other races, aka blacks were free to eat, drink anywhere, BUT back in America segregation of blacks and whites still existed. So essentially the American army went to someone else’s country and demanded they adopted America’s racist practices So when the American Military police found out that their own black American soldiers were drinking at the same pubs as white people they went in to arrest them. The people in the town got mad about the treatment of the black soldiers and decided to then turn their pubs into “BLACKS ONLY DRINKING PUBS” the very opposite of what was taking place in America with their WHITES ONLY businesses. Of course this pissed off the American military so guns went blazing, and when word spread back at camp that black soldiers had been shot, scores of men formed a crowd, some carrying rifles and by midnight more American military police arrived with a machine gun-equipped vehicle, so the black soldiers had no choice but to get rifles from British stores while others barricaded themselves back on base, so now it was American white soldiers versus American black soldiers. This lead to the death of one solider, injury of 7, and 32 convictions. Back in America the battle was hushed up because they didn’t want the country to find out that they were fighting their own soldiers which would anger the black population and weaken the morale in the country. You may read about the ill treatment of black American soldiers by their own army in the book FORGOTTEN.

    Silly or Annoying Things Done in Films or TV

    People getting punched in the face & being instantly knocked unconscious. Midnight Run is a prime example, De Niro’s character goes ‘Marvin, Marvin, look out’ & then when Marvin looks away he knocks him spark out. On, like, three separate occasions. And his hand isn’t sore. So, that, & when people go to sleep their bedrooms are never dark

    THE Sopranos thread

    Just finished re-watching season two. See when they go out in the boat to whack Pussy, why didn’t they just do it up on deck? Big bloater weighed a ton so they had to drag him up the steps & then clean up all the carpets & shit. Just a thought

    I was a guest on Soccer AM back in 2002 (Hearts fans were the supporters of the week) & Tinhead was on too. He came across as a bit of a twat if truth be told
