Pardew could rest stars ahead of Saints game

ALAN Pardew could rest first team stars for his side’s decisive UEFA Cup tie with Metalist Kharkiv – to keep them fresh to face Saints.

The former St Mary’s boss welcomes his old club to St James’ Park on Sunday with the two clubs level on points just above the drop zone.

It is a big match for both teams, and not just for personal reasons for Pardew who was controversially axed as Saints manager in August 2010 by chairman Nicola Cortese, and who lost against his former side at St Mary’s earlier in the season.

But, while Mauricio Pochettino is enjoying the benefits of two weeks without a game for his charges, Pardew has the small matter of trying to reach the last 16 of the Europa League to contend with.

Newcastle drew 0-0 at home to their Ukrainian opponentsin the first leg of their tie and so travel this Thursday facing a tough test.

They won’t land back in England until Friday and then have a short time to prepare for Saints. That is why Pardew is considering changes.

He said: “We have to sit down and make sure we get team selection right. Southampton is a huge game for us and so is the second leg of this tie. We’re going to have to call that right.

“We know there’s a tail-off of energy from Thursday to Sunday, so we’re going to have to make sure the team’s good enough to get us what we want out there in Ukraine, and also good enough to beat Southampton.”

Newcastle already have enough selection problems to worry about with seven first team stars likely to be ruled out of the Metalist Kharkiv game.

Two of those – Yoan Gouffran and Hatem Ben Arfa – are touch and go to be available for the visit of Saints, who are expected to have a fully fit squad from which to choose.

Despite his selection problems, Pardew is confident of progression in the Europa League.

“They’ve got to beat us to win,” he reckoned. “If we play anything like we did, it’ll be difficult for them.

“We pulled them around and asked them a lot of different questions – there were a lot of good things about us.

“There were nice introductions from the bench – Shola Ameobi and Sylvain Marveaux made a difference – and that bodes well for the coming games. There’s a lot to think about.”

The Europa Cup must be an absolute nightmare. Newcastle have got no chance of winning it and it's completely messed up their league form.

I think we should try and shoot straight through to the Champions League.

I had one of my regular visits from a Martian chum last night and had to explain to him why I'm more tense than usual this week.

I said it was all down to a very important football match. "We have eleven men in Southampton who have to go to Newcastle" I explained. "When they get there, they will be in a contest against eleven men from Newcastle, within the strict confines of a marked 130 yard by 75 yard grassed area. Essentially, our eleven men have to get a special ball of air into a designated big net as many times as possible whilst stopping the Newcastle men getting it into another net as many times as possible - using any part of their bodies except their arms and hands (excluding one player each who can use his whole body but only within a small area) - providing of course a player in an opposing half doesn't receive the ball from one of his team, or interfere with play, with less than two opposing players between him and the target net.

I added that fifty thousand people would be paying to watch it and that many thousands of us down here and around the globe were also sweating on the result.

Anyhow, he said, wouldn't it be just as sensible to have a competition whereby men had to hit a 24" by 18" empty cardboard box into a Jacuzzi tub from ten yards using only their right arm and a special yellow painted metal bar with a big rubber handle?

Honestly, the bloke's a complete tosspot.

Ferg said earlier in the season that managers that moan about too many fixtures and tired players are in the wrong game.. unless I'm mistaken his first team turn out pretty much for every game unless injured.

One thing for certain our players will go and go and go and will be stuffed when they come off.. hopefully we'll have too much gas in the tank for Toon and we should get plenty of goals in the net..

Newcastle will be bricking it.. Pards knows that he lost the first encounter and we are a much much better side with more purpose at the moment.. they are on a hiding to nothing and his job could be at stake.

To be fare that’s easy for old red nose to say with the depth of his squads.
Fergie is the master at rotating players and staying in competitions, Wenger is not.
We will need to get on top early and take the crowd out, the Geordies can be a negative vibe on the home team in these pressure games if they are losing.

This is a massive game (*cliché alert*) we can bring many teams into the relegation fight... or maybe even start our way out of the fight. As you point out, half of the table would be involved in the fight, which means chances to get relegated are diminished. Not to mention, of course, that we may break free from this fight at some point, with the right results. Vivan Los Santos!

Anyhow, he said, wouldn't it be just as sensible to have a competition whereby men had to hit a 24" by 18" empty cardboard box into a Jacuzzi tub from ten yards using only their right arm and a special yellow painted metal bar with a big rubber handle?

Honestly, the bloke's a complete tosspot.
I think you need to be very careful here.Too much information is a dangerous thing !!!


Your explanation of the off side rule in three lines brings the whole concept within the understanding range of women. Worse still it may make it clearer to referees and we can't have that !!

The whole point of the off side rule is to give the home fans a reason to scream and holler when the away team scores a goal. It also gives defences a reason to stand still with their hand in the air and use that as an excuse for their lack of pace in catching the bloke with the ball .. who by now is doing victory cartwheels behind the goal.

Now what you really need to do is add an appendix with the 465 sub clauses and subtleties that make this rule difficult for women, referees and of course ..... Americans.

Fair point and duly noted Alicesdad.

My friend from Mars, who visits me in the middle of the night every few weeks, told me they would never have refs there, as they are by nature 100% honest and 100% forgiving.

With that level of tolerance I presumed he'd be just as happy to call on chums in Portsmouth as the likes of me in the Forest.

But no! Even them Martians won't go near there. In fact he told me they have a song about it....

Apart from the fact that Mars isn't in Europe that song has all the makings of a Eurovision winner.

You are also right about Martians steering clear of the muddy naval estuary. The inter galactic highway code clearly identifies such dangerous areas and places approriate signs warning travellers of the Cosmos. From the latest version of that publication it is quite clear that the large erection known to local earthlings as the Spinnaker Tower is in fact nothing more than a "No entry Hazardous Wasteland" sign.

It all makes sense now. Tall building, a lift, and a glass floor, what else could it possibly be?

Read this everyone!

Nicola has unearthed a bit of a gem, hasn't he? And he was right - it was perfect timing to bring MP in when he did, given all the breaks in the schedule at the moment which have given him the time to really mould the team to his liking.
Still, he could have done it taking the fans into consideration and without humiliating the guy that won back to back promotions. Just a good explanation would've sufficed.

I was thinking much the same. Once liquidation takes place, we should send the martians in to munch happily on the liquidised mush the process will create. After all, they're probably able to digest things which would be condemed and unedible to humanity, especially as most skunts probably contain horse meat.

Anyway, once the martians have fed themselves, their parting message to the world could be, 'so long and thanks for all the fish.'

Anyway, once the martians have fed themselves, their parting message to the world could be, 'so long and thanks for all the fish.' Strasbourg Saint

Read this everyone!

Nicola has unearthed a bit of a gem, hasn't he? And he was right - it was perfect timing to bring MP in when he did, given all the breaks in the schedule at the moment which have given him the time to really mould the team to his liking.
Still, he could have done it taking the fans into consideration and without humiliating the guy that won back to back promotions. Just a good explanation would've sufficed.
I don't think Nigel was humiliated. I think he was fully expecting to go in the summer but Nicola said to him he'd let him take the team to Anfield before replacing him. Everyone's a winner.

Anyway, here's some food for thought: Pompey have just over two months to complete a sale or else they'll be thrown out of the league. I can't see their court hearing happening within the next month. Therefore, even if the judge rules Fratton Park is indeed worth f*** all, they'll have a maximum of one month to convert all those pledges and sort out all the legal business or else they're done for. And that's assuming Keith Harris doesn't cause more delays to the legal process.

I would wager it's mission impossible.

The judge is fully aware of the various deadlines. He will seek an early hearing otherwise there will be no point in having one. The barrister for pkf (operating on behalf of pst) will also stress that point. The only think that could possibly stop the skunts winning this - is the skunts themselves or Channers has a fantastically strong argument that just cannot be ignored for a higher value on FP.

There's not a lot of laughing happening on The News, that's for sure.

Mind you, there's not a lot at Arsenal either. At least they can console themselves with the fact that ITV has just had the phrase "Ars-Bay" in the top left corner for the last 90 minutes. What a fantastic idea for a website!

I never got why they didn't just have the court case to set the value anyway. But I now understand that they needed to be in a position to actually do it and because of Stuart Robinson (top bloke) they weren't able to do it. Hence the council loan. They are now ready, but it's down to the value of the place.

Personally, all jokes aside, £3m sounds cheap to me.

However, I bet they find something else to prevaricate about, they just can't help themselves.

When they were in the prem, a business acquaintance who was a big time skate fan sorted a financial deal for me which saved me a lot of money. I had a friend (fellow Saint) who worked at the training ground at Eastleigh so I arranged for the skate to get an autographed shirt. I had it all framed up for him but I had the Saints crest and the words 'Supplied by Scummers' etched into the frame which couldn't be removed! Priceless!

Torch the place. Covers up your crime and deals with kunt. Double whammy!
But I so want him to read it ....... I'll go back and torch it on friday .
I hope you remembered to clean the inside of your btm with his toothbrush! Slug?
If you go back Friday please complete this mission.It also helps to find a camera in the house, take a pic (or even better, video) of such actions for the skate to discover at a later date!

I'm not a fan of the toothbrush up the 'arris ...... too great a risk of personal infection .......... a favorite response to a horrible customer is to "top up their listerine" if you know what I mean ? ...... never ever pee off a person who has access to every room in your home is my advice ;o)

I had one of my regular visits from a Martian chum last night and had to explain to him why I'm more tense than usual this week.

I said it was all down to a very important football match. "We have eleven men in Southampton who have to go to Newcastle" I explained. "When they get there, they will be in a contest against eleven men from Newcastle, within the strict confines of a marked 130 yard by 75 yard grassed area. Essentially, our eleven men have to get a special ball of air into a designated big net as many times as possible whilst stopping the Newcastle men getting it into another net as many times as possible - using any part of their bodies except their arms and hands (excluding one player each who can use his whole body but only within a small area) - providing of course a player in an opposing half doesn't receive the ball from one of his team, or interfere with play, with less than two opposing players between him and the target net.

I added that fifty thousand people would be paying to watch it and that many thousands of us down here and around the globe were also sweating on the result.

Anyhow, he said, wouldn't it be just as sensible to have a competition whereby men had to hit a 24" by 18" empty cardboard box into a Jacuzzi tub from ten yards using only their right arm and a special yellow painted metal bar with a big rubber handle?

Honestly, the bloke's a complete tosspot.
I think you need to be very careful here.Too much information is a dangerous thing !!!


Your explanation of the off side rule in three lines brings the whole concept within the understanding range of women. Worse still it may make it clearer to referees and we can't have that !!

The whole point of the off side rule is to give the home fans a reason to scream and holler when the away team scores a goal. It also gives defences a reason to stand still with their hand in the air and use that as an excuse for their lack of pace in catching the bloke with the ball .. who by now is doing victory cartwheels behind the goal.

Now what you really need to do is add an appendix with the 465 sub clauses and subtleties that make this rule difficult for women, referees and of course ..... Americans.

Pandoras box must remain closed !!
Fair point and duly noted Alicesdad.

My friend from Mars, who visits me in the middle of the night every few weeks, told me they would never have refs there, as they are by nature 100% honest and 100% forgiving.

With that level of tolerance I presumed he'd be just as happy to call on chums in Portsmouth as the likes of me in the Forest.

But no! Even them Martians won't go near there. In fact he told me they have a song about it....

Uuul lk ghakal butrrghtdly Pompey
Cgbakkar han gruokl getto hu
Jhansdhga banhgsje shs sjdjfhe
Jifhjf dhjdo Poo!

Obviously, he's not a bad sort at all really.
Sounds more like Vogon poetry to me, one of their construction fleets could do a world of good in the Nottarf area.
The aliens favourite chant at the moment is "Oh when the Saints go Martian in".

In the replay we went 2-0 up and I have never to this day heard a roar like it..

...then the ref mindful of his Anderlecht obligations allowed a goal from them which was at least 30 yards offside...

Nicola has unearthed a bit of a gem, hasn't he? And he was right - it was perfect timing to bring MP in when he did, given all the breaks in the schedule at the moment which have given him the time to really mould the team to his liking.
Still, he could have done it taking the fans into consideration and without humiliating the guy that won back to back promotions. Just a good explanation would've sufficed.
I don't think Nigel was humiliated. I think he was fully expecting to go in the summer but Nicola said to him he'd let him take the team to Anfield before replacing him. Everyone's a winner.
only the way it was announced nigel knew he was going before the chelsea game .forren deal had already been set up .mp had been watching the team for 5 weeks .it was only sudden to the media not privatley .nigel will be paid off well .now lets move on .i hope sky blues sort there club out and get nigel there .they were brilliant on promotion day
OK, that's all speculation from you guys. The hard fact is that there was no explanations to the fans, not even a press conference (same as MP did in Espanyol to say goodbye, with the Espanyol chairman acknowledging work done). I have moved on, but please don't present NC as a genius because he isn't. He is good, yes, but not perfect. Having said that, I am very happy with Pochie and think he is even better than NA.

Seems to me that it was a simple case of a wild pool party were the windows became a little steamy, weather was bad so everything meant for a barbie was cooked on the hob, Frannie did not get invited evidently complained and it was therefore inappropriate to allow him to continue as an 'ambassador'..a grand title if ever i heard one.

Finally the bad weather meant the only thing to do was watch television...

The moral is don't have a pool party.

Still, he could have done it taking the fans into consideration and without humiliating the guy that won back to back promotions. Just a good explanation would've sufficed.
I don't think Nigel was humiliated. I think he was fully expecting to go in the summer but Nicola said to him he'd let him take the team to Anfield before replacing him. Everyone's a winner.
only the way it was announced nigel knew he was going before the chelsea game .forren deal had already been set up .mp had been watching the team for 5 weeks .it was only sudden to the media not privatley .nigel will be paid off well .now lets move on .i hope sky blues sort there club out and get nigel there .they were brilliant on promotion day
OK, that's all speculation from you guys. The hard fact is that there was no explanations to the fans, not even a press conference (same as MP did in Espanyol to say goodbye, with the Espanyol chairman acknowledging work done). I have moved on, but please don't present NC as a genius because he isn't. He is good, yes, but not perfect. Having said that, I am very happy with Pochie and think he is even better than NA.
I'm not saying he's perfect. For thing he's blatantly a very messy chef.

(Allegedly etc etc etc)
OK, yes, in the end we pretty much agree... I just think he should improve his ways.

I think the comments are closed on the Benali story in order to prevent it (and, indeed, us) from being in contempt of court.

But I don't know if I see it as anti-Saints. If anything, in reporting what Franny is actually upset about it stops all these rumours about NC trashing his house or ripping up the carpets or whatever. There's been all this fuss about a messy hob and a 12 grand a year job. It's insane.

It can't be both a private issue AND a matter for the courts. The courts are in the public domain. You and I can sit in the public gallery and listen to both arguments if we so wish. The media can report on it if they so wish.

One things for sure - unless they reach an out of court settlement - we will know who is right and who is wrong come judgement day.

I regret to report that I have just finished briefing my lawyer on my prospective suit against the club.

Two years ago I negotiated an ambassadorial role to represent the club on this site - at £4.20 per month plus a free coffee and twix bar on match days.

After six months, the money stopped and I was refused my coffee and twix at the Kingsland refreshment bar.

The club is claiming that whilst my posts on here have been markedly more intelligent and perceptive than the average contribution, I nonetheless put the club in a bad light in two posts made in 2012...

1. Saying that the"cheapskate" mens' urinal troughs projected only 4" from the walls causing even blokes with normal sized willies to fall short and pee all over the floor.

2. Suggesting that all fat supporters (especially those with wind issues) should, for the comfort of regular sized fans, be confined to a 'Jumbly' ' Stand at Itchen North where a giant fan should be installed to blow co-ordinated mass f@rts at the away support.

My case is that my constructive criticism was compatible with an "ambassadorial role" and that I am therefore owed £58.60 and 21 free coffees twix bars.

I have written to Le Tiss asking him to permit and endorse the following quote which would be attributed to him:

"This is an outrage. Confucious is a Saints legend and yet he's being treated like a big lump of sh!te found and sat upon by the Queen herself on the back seat of her Rolls Royce. He's worth at least £28.70 a month plus six coffees, ten twix bars and three sherbert dips or a box of licorice allsorts."

I have not heard back from Le Tiss yet, but have no doubt he will rally to my cause. Us legends stick together!

I think a private meeting between you and NC over a coffee and biscuits which as a matter of honour should be off the table as regards any potential outcome but on the table for issues of practicality..

Be-twixt and between the lines, i think your case has legal precedent..

In the case of 'Freebie and the Bean' versus Hoblers old boy's...judge Leef-Peek- Frean in his summing up
adjudged that a promise to supply free coffee beans in return for a fortnightly packet of Hob Nobs was by it's nature and intent a binding contract..

Furthermore this contractual position could not be offset by the introduction of a lesser biscuit offered by the defendant, namely a tesco value digestive with every coffeee consumed.

Inter alia your claim having a clear denial of service sets a dangerous and worrying precedent which the courts must resist.

Anything that refers to the case would be probably considered sub judice, so it is best to let the case run its course in the Courts, who will get to the bottom of it and make a decision. As in most of these cases both sides are probably in the wrong and any decision will be decided on the facts, the only people that make money out of these things are the legal eagles, who no doubt will be raking it in.

I'll try and phone my lawyer at Wilson Wilson and Wilson this morning to put him in the picture - though it does mean going through that boring kerfuffle again and again every time I ask for Mr Wilson.

I'm surprised they didn't give me the good info you've got and I've a good mind to change legal firms. They let me down last year when I lost my case against a big grocery chain. Somehow they got off compensating me by claiming that the trout I found in my carton of milk was 'purely circumstantial evidence'.

Good luck Confucious, we're all with you!

One question though .. Why were you in SMS toilets with a tape measure?

STID
I needed it to measure the urinal depth. The statistic on the average length of Saints supporters' willies, however, is based on a question survey I conducted at the exit with a sample of 327 blokes. The average willy length claimed was seven inches, but this was adjusted to four and a half inches, as there's a known overclaim factor of 65% on all self declared willy length surveys. A further adjustment of 4.2% was made as the survey was done on a slightly colder than usual day. I checked this myself in a controlled experiment showing that my own eight inch willy contracts by one eighth of an inch with every degree centigrade below 31.

I consulted my own lawyer at the celebrated firm of Sue Grabbitt and Runn.

In short he agreed that the basic circumstances can be summed up as follows.

Rich bloke 1 from abroad needs a place to live for a while.

Rich bloke2 (ex-sportsman) has big house that will do for the time being.

Rich bloke 2 agrees to rent it to Rich Bloke 1

Rich bloke 2 also sees oppoortunity to make a few quid out of his former employer by being an "ambassador".. i.e. hanging out on Corporate hospitality on match days with free vino collapso and a few tortillas .. and getting paid £500 a go... Nice work if you can get it.

Then there's some stuff about not cutting the grass and damaging a work surface and some stuff t do with "chattels" ( a word that indicates that lawyers are in there somewhere already).

Rich Bloke 3 , a mate of Rich bloke 2 , sticks his oar in and demands to talk ot talk to Rich Bloke 1. Nobody cares what Rich Bloke 3 thinks so he appears in a paragraph in a an Echo article just to stir things up a bit.

Rich Blokes 4,5,6,7,8,9 etc (all judges and lawyers) become even richer sorting out the mess and awarding someone a few thousand pounds .. with 3.5 million in court costs.

I welcomed this clarification from my legal counsel, its all clear now, buit it all seems a bit rich to me.

Thanks Warrens, much appreciated.

I'll try and phone my lawyer at Wilson Wilson and Wilson this morning to put him in the picture - though it does mean going through that boring kerfuffle again and again every time I ask for Mr Wilson.

I'm surprised they didn't give me the good info you've got and I've a good mind to change legal firms. They let me down last year when I lost my case against a big grocery chain. Somehow they got off compensating me by claiming that the trout I found in my carton of milk was 'purely circumstantial evidence'.
Bizzarely, I have had an old trout milk me.

I have it heard that self declared willy lengths are more accurate when declared in centimetres as this has less impact on the ego. Lucky that your survey was at SMS, if it had been at Fratton, you would have needed a reel-tape as I understand they are the biggest "c0cks" on the South coast.

As far as the court case is concerned, please be careful if they settle out of court, they may try to palm you off with Aero's which simply do not equate to the value of twix's. However, if they offer Dairy Milk, snap their arms off, they are worth double! Hope this helps.

Following an urgent tété a tété with my lawyers Humphrey Bogart Bacall the coffee issue is apparantly of relevance here...

..a suggestion to prevent further loses on either side is that SFc make a once and for all payment for commercial Jura coffee maker and a years supply of illy beans...

Whilst a substantial up front compensatory payment it relieves SFC joint and several or quite a lot ally of future increases and allowing for the price of a coffee and twix at st Mary's likely to exceed your mortgage within 5 years they are getting of lightly roasted, you have bean given an item of impeccable good taste and moreover the coffee tastes good..something that no other supporter will ever receive..

Why were you in SMS toilets with a tape measure? STID[/p][/quote]I needed it to measure the urinal depth. The statistic on the average length of Saints supporters' willies, however, is based on a question survey I conducted at the exit with a sample of 327 blokes. The average willy length claimed was seven inches, but this was adjusted to four and a half inches, as there's a known overclaim factor of 65% on all self declared willy length surveys. A further adjustment of 4.2% was made as the survey was done on a slightly colder than usual day. I checked this myself in a controlled experiment showing that my own eight inch willy contracts by one eighth of an inch with every degree centigrade below 31.[/p][/quote]I have it heard that self declared willy lengths are more accurate when declared in centimetres as this has less impact on the ego. Lucky that your survey was at SMS, if it had been at Fratton, you would have needed a reel-tape as I understand they are the biggest "c0cks" on the South coast. As far as the court case is concerned, please be careful if they settle out of court, they may try to palm you off with Aero's which simply do not equate to the value of twix's. However, if they offer Dairy Milk, snap their arms off, they are worth double! Hope this helps. STID[/p][/quote]Cheers for that. I might ask for that nice Kenco coffee too. I have a nice big mug of that with milk and two lumps every morning - the wife and her mother.[/p][/quote]Following an urgent tété a tété with my lawyers Humphrey Bogart Bacall the coffee issue is apparantly of relevance here... ..a suggestion to prevent further loses on either side is that SFc make a once and for all payment for commercial Jura coffee maker and a years supply of illy beans... Whilst a substantial up front compensatory payment it relieves SFC joint and several or quite a lot ally of future increases and allowing for the price of a coffee and twix at st Mary's likely to exceed your mortgage within 5 years they are getting of lightly roasted, you have bean given an item of impeccable good taste and moreover the coffee tastes good..something that no other supporter will ever receive.. warrens 76

You know I have some sympathy with young Oscar Pistorious...

..surely he cannot be the first man to wake up legless on Valentines day and shot all over his wifes face while imagining she was someone else...

I had one of my regular visits from a Martian chum last night and had to explain to him why I'm more tense than usual this week.

I said it was all down to a very important football match. "We have eleven men in Southampton who have to go to Newcastle" I explained. "When they get there, they will be in a contest against eleven men from Newcastle, within the strict confines of a marked 130 yard by 75 yard grassed area. Essentially, our eleven men have to get a special ball of air into a designated big net as many times as possible whilst stopping the Newcastle men getting it into another net as many times as possible - using any part of their bodies except their arms and hands (excluding one player each who can use his whole body but only within a small area) - providing of course a player in an opposing half doesn't receive the ball from one of his team, or interfere with play, with less than two opposing players between him and the target net.

I added that fifty thousand people would be paying to watch it and that many thousands of us down here and around the globe were also sweating on the result.

Anyhow, he said, wouldn't it be just as sensible to have a competition whereby men had to hit a 24" by 18" empty cardboard box into a Jacuzzi tub from ten yards using only their right arm and a special yellow painted metal bar with a big rubber handle?

Honestly, the bloke's a complete tosspot.
Some people!

Back in the mists of time we were in the old Cup winners cup which to many was as big and a **** sight more exciting than the European cup..

Corporate interests ie Europes elite wanted everything to themselves..still do and therefore removed the CWC..

For those too young we would have won the **** thing had the ref not been bribed...

..seriously Anderlecht were found guilty of bribery two years later..

We had a goal disallowed after 9 minutes over in Brussels, a penalty denied on 85...

In the replay we went 2-0 up and I have never to this day heard a roar like it..

...then the ref mindful of his Anderlecht obligations allowed a goal from them which was at least 30 yards offside...

First time a referee had to be given a police escort at the Dell..crowd would of lynched him..
I was there too that night! Fabulous fabulous atmosphere until Anderlecht scored. The Dell was rocking like I had never heard before.

Yes, our fans are in excellent form these days after years of reduced capacity at the Dell...however were someone to have recorded that night fans today would be gobsmacked...29.000 officially.....not an inch of room they reckoned 40.000 crammed in somehow for Mike Channon's testimonial...as many were there for Anderlecht thousands locked out...noisier than a jumbo jet taking off...
