Re: We're ManchesteROFL United, we do what we want

CL semi-finalists last season, just four years after their promotion to the Bundesliga. And they have won of the best young coaches in the world in Nagelsmann. This is no fluke.

Re: European Leagues Thread 2012/2013

Winston Biscuit In his resignation speech he says

“The Board of Directors has approved the acceptance of the requirements to participate in a future European Super League of Football Clubs, a project promoted by the big clubs in Europe.”

Yeah, quits and then sets fire to the curtains on the way out.

Re: Best Player in the World Ever

I think he's saying that the players Maradona played with in '86 were no mugs, not least the '78 World Cup winning captain.

Re: Weekend Football

Agreed on Brentford - they looked good for a playoff spot from the middle of the season, but grabbed third by virtue of winning seven or eight in a row from March. Sadly for their fans I'm not convinced they've got another run at promotion in them this season, not least since losing Watkins and now ...

Re: Man CitHEHEHE

I'm taking a pretty wide view of world-class, i.e. not the dull 'would they get into a world XI'. Aguero, De Bruyne, Sterling, Mahrez, Laporte, Ederson would get into most or all first teams in the PL. Additionally, I don't think any club would turn down a reasonable chance to sign Foden, Gundogan, ...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Blackburn Rovers (a) sponsored by Paul McShane

Seeing a lot of people claim we’ve not played anyone decent yet, do they not realise we’re the only side to beat Watford? That doesn't necessarily mean we played that well. Watford were very poor and we were workmanlike and solid. We have been extremely solid and robust, better than any other team ...

I think the red button picture quality relates to it being streamed, rather than piped direct to TV.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Blackburn Rovers (a) sponsored by Paul McShane

I'm trying to take a wider view of our excellent start and the fixtures ahead. We have four games in 12 days, starting tonight at Ewood Park. If we have seven wins at the next international break, we'll have a minimum of 22 points from our first ten games, which would be an excellent return. Eight w...

Re: Best Player in the World Ever

Maradona for me. I've always liked Argentina. And he played for Napoli. He was riding tackles in the age where you could go out and maim people. Amazing footballer and an absolute twat as well. So much more interesting than Pele. ^ This. One of those people who is a complete bellend but somehow als...

Bit concerned for Wycombe (0-0-7, two goals scored) that they might threaten Rotherham's miserable record low 23 points in the Championship.

Re: VAR

Ooh, a maths question. I like. There's two things going on with penalties. First, that more are being awarded. Second, that the continual 'refinement' of rules around the penalty kick are making them near impossible to keep out. So first, number of penalties, 30 so far this season in roughly six rou...

Old Man Andrews The scoreline isn't the funniest thing about the game either when you look at the name of the player red carded.


The match is a stain on VVV's history.

Re: European Leagues Thread 2012/2013

^9 goals in the last 37 minutes. :shock:

Ansu Fati is now the youngest scorer in Barca, La Liga, Spain and El Clasico history. Also the youngest in 40 years to be sent off.

Re: Best Player in the World Ever

Not seriously putting him forward as the greatest ever, but I'm always surprised Zlatan Ibrahimovic isn't at least talked of more as a genuine 'all-time great'. One of the criticisms levelled at Messi is his being a one-club man (not one I agree with, same as I don't think Giggs' career is denigrate...

Re: Weekend Football

Everton, Leipzig, Milan and Real Sociedad top of their respective tables after the weekend. Which is excellent. Shame PSG has regained top spot from Lille after their dodgy start to the season. Six wins from six, 20 goals scored and one conceded since!

Remarkable from Bamford - as many goals in his first six PL appearances this season as in his last 21 in the Championship last time.

Re: VAR

We've ended up in a situation where now instead of referees not being accountable for their decisions, it is VAR that is not. Where is the official statement on the Pickford incident? And the Maguire foul? Where is the acknowledgement that the VAR referee got it wrong? Or an explanation as to why he...

Re: Best Player in the World Ever

Opinions are opinions of course. Not sure how anyone can ever have Messi at no. 7. As for 'he always scores the same type of goal, and when Barca are 2-0 or 3-0 up', I almost don't know where to start with this. First, he has over 700 career goals. How many goals do we think Barca score? Second, he ...

Re: Football - The Covid Years

My point above about it not being exciting when these clubs play each other every week got me thinking about how it does feel exciting and a novelty when some big teams in Europe meet having not done so for years, and so I wondered which giants of the game have not met for yonks? For some reason th...
