Title: Derby Day Memories
Post by: Vamps on September 25, 2017, 11:16:15 am
OK - we've waited some time for this so let's have a thread for your memories and funny quips.

I spent the day racing round the Solent, trying to get glimpses of the score between races. Saw the line-ups and wasn't confident. Next update I got was 2-0 up and couldn't believe it. Heading back into Cowes was hoping to get back for the 2nd half in the pub but didn't make it - got an update at 2-2 and was swearing like a good'n with my crew thinking I'd gone slightly crazy. Got back in and saw the final score and was in complete Euphoria.........what an up and day gown and Im not talking about the waves......

It was a great display from us but not unexpected because we didn't raise our game, we always play like that. That shot of them two mascots had me cracking up, very funny and Duffy springing their defense and scoring from such a Fjortoftesque angle was awesome. Oh and Clarke who wasn't good enough for them had a blinder of a game.

 Spending loads of money is ok and easy if you have it but it takes a genius to blend a team no matter what is or is not spent. Porterfield, Bassett and Warnock both had that ability to find players from obscurity and blend a great team, and Wilder has it too. Fergerson had money in droves but he bought the right players to suit his style and used academy lads also and he was a master at blending a team. This is what most fans fail to understand and all pig fans go on about is how much their team cost so they should beat us.

The fact that somewhere in a remote part of Kansas, the Australian outback, Estonia, Poland, Germany, Turkey, Dublin and Timbuk-fooking-too there's someone watching the Massive Bouncing Twats suddenly stop and cry makes me warm inside...  :ok:

Wednesday really are massive now.  Global in fact  :DD :DD :DD

Van Aken getting quite a slating in both Holland and Sweden as well from what I can see - assuming Google translate works correctly, since I speak neither language!

If you've seen Carvalhal's meltdown on Twitter where he screws up a 20 pound note then says it's still worth 20 pounds... This is what he should have said...

Saw that mate, unfortunately for Carlos when you screw up an entire £69m football team it's suddenly not worth £69m any more. I mean, who the fuck's ever going to give £10m for Rhodes again? Hahahahahahahaha - did he actually touch the ball after he came on?

We all know the Pigs' lovely new kit is made by one of Chansari's dodgy offshore companies called Elev8 right...?

We all know Duffy stopped them bouncing right?

Look what other company is also called Elev8....

A short poem about the Bouncing Day Massacre, written from the perspective of a Wendy...

So the tale that I tell thee,
Is of the Blades agean't Wednesday
It were on a Sunday in S6
We were gonna mek them blades cry and shit bricks!

We were so full of ourselves, confident!
We'd not started bouncing when we had to relent
Free kick out er't box and up stepped Fleck
Curled into the corner, Mi Dad shouted "OH FUCKIN 'ECK!"

All me mates said this'd be a walk in the park
Then he walked through t'defence, that donkey, Leon Clarke
He only made them two to the good
stepped through out defence like they was made of wood

United goal scorers the Mc weren't s'posed to announce
Let's blame the manager, whose name we can't pronounce
This shun't be 'appening, I wanna lose my temper
We said they'd be relegated by the end of September!

We're Real Madrid, but playing in a stupor
But we got some hope, before the break, with our Hooper
He nailed us a goal, against the run of play
You'd 'ave thought the Blades were at home, not playing away!

Just after the break, the balance stated to sway,
And we scored again, with a player whose name we can't say!
'Ere we go, we're up and 'ere comes the trouncing
Then 'ere it comes, the infamous Hillsborough bouncing!

We can only say that them Blades had been lucky,
But we'd not paid attention to that young ginger lad, Duffy.
I'd just put a tenner on us, on 365 and Sky Bet
When that little ginner hits the back of the net!

He turned to salute his once bouncing abusers,
We're all turned to stone stone, like we'd looked at Medusa!
Three sides of Hillsbrough in silence, stood STILL
And me dad looking puce, like he'd choked on some swill.

This can't be 'appening, they've not read the script,
Three sides er't ground as quiet as a crypt.
We shout "CARLOS OUT!" and that sort of malarkey,
Then he's through again, you know that reject Clarky.

Ghosting through, like the defenders are dips,
Then beating Westwood, with the subtlest of chips.
We're being beaten by a pub team from the Dog n Duck!
I think its abaht time I logged out of Facebook!!!

Sean the Blade....
