    Questions for those running for the board of directors of the North Melbourne Football Club

    Oh, hi there. Some of you may remember me, but most of you won't. Since it is election time, I'm back. For now. I think we're at a critical stage of our club's history. There has been a bit of media lately about the upcoming elections for the board of directors for the North Melbourne...

    The Italian and German clubs might struggle in European competition, but the domestic competition is still the bread and butter for clubs. And I think there's a good case to say that the Bundeslegia is the best in Europe for the fans. They get great crowds, have terraces, great atmosphere...

    That's the ridiculous thing about the takeovers of United and Liverpool. Both clubs were debt free, and both got taken over, using debt, and that debt was whacked onto the clubs instead of the owners. :mad: Great post.

    On the Liverpool situation, if the holding company goes broke, then wouldn't they start the season on -10 points? That is what had happened to Southampton when their holding company went broke. The same Galactico era that failed to win any silverware in its final three seasons?

    Now that you guys mention it, dental nurses are hot. Even the dental nurses who are clearly MILFS are hot.

    I didn't have much of an issue with what Fergie was trying to do against Barca. We failed due to poor execution and Barca's brilliance. The Fergie tactical abilities is an interesting debate. I've never really rated him in that regard, and yet, he's delivered a river of silverware for...

    Hate to lose, but...

    This is why the chronic injuries to JWS have killed us. Add him into the midfield, and suddenly, we've got options - Wells, Ziebell, and JWS is a damn good midfield trio. Add McIntosh feeding the ball, and it's bloody magnificent. All sides can shut down one gun midfielder, and most can cover...

    Oh, hell no. It was just about Liverpool fans. In the 80s, they had the attitude that if they didn't win silverware, it just meant that it was on loan to someone else. They also used to say that their season started with the Charity Shield and finished with the European Cup final. Okay, it...

    If the biggest disappointment we have to face at the end of the season is finishing with only the Premier League trophy, then we're doing fine. The way the scousers have whinged and whined after we won the title, those bastards have no idea of what disappointment is. Disappointment is what...

    That's the thing, it's hindsight. What if we got a goal after our first ten minutes? We may have gone on to win and Fergie would have been hailed a genius. I think most of us understand that Fergie isn't a great tactician. To me, he's more of a gambler, willing to take a risk to get 3...

    It's funny and sad at the same time. Over the years, the Liverpool fans have bagged the Everton ones for being bitter, laughed at their lack of success, telling them to know their place, and abused them for laughing at Liverpool's failures. But of course, it's a different rule when they want...

    It's probably a small consolation, but I think we would have lost if we played Chelsea. Simply, Barca were hungrier than we were, and Chelsea would have been the same. In the end, I'd rather lose to Barca. When clubs get to this level, it just comes down to desire. We won it last season...

    Three seasons of **** all, and the only thing they can celebrate is United finishing runner up against Europe's best club side. I'm happy with the EPL. And it's the only thing I want next season too. As always, anything else is just a bonus. But it was a weird season. I didn't think we...
