Re: Euro 2020

It looks like it might be better for England to finish runner-up in the group - winning it means we will face either France, Germany or Portugal in the R16 (unless Hungary pull a miracle) Bit like in World Cup, finishing runner-up gave us a much easier route through If we finish runners-up, wouldn'...

Re: The generic transfer thread

Were I Mbappe, those comments alone would ensure I never signed another contract at PSG. Unfortunately I'm sure Minguella will negotiate something ridiculous and he'll end up wasting another two or three years in Ligue 1.

Re: The Manager Sack Race/Merry-go-Round

And Zidane gone from Real Madrid, for a second time.

And in WTAF news, Sky Sports reporting that Spurs are in talks to bring Pochettino back to the club. :shock:

Well, obviously then I want Cittadella to go up, even if they have cheated and built their stadium outside of the walls.

Re: New Kits 2019/20

New Liverpool kit got a run-out against Palace last weekend. Is smart enough, but just not sure where the pink comes from in the club's history. https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-CcUB8VWamo0/YKYGkx0yqII/AAAAAAACpUw/2gQGwd3oCL81_8LStcV4ixBvwiWUma-iQCLcBGAsYHQ/s600/liverpool%2B21%2B22%2Bhome%2Bkit%2B%25289%2...

Re: Premier League Hall of Very Good / Championship Hall of Fame

Won the PL, FA Cup and Champions League with United, and the inaugural Premier League golden boot, but no-one really talks of Teddy Sheringham as an all-time great. Only 11 goals for England masks his contribution to the side, and his partnership with Shearer, too. If he's not considered for the PL ...

Re: European Leagues Thread 2012/2013

Quirky stat highlighted by the Guardian - the Eredivisie golden boot winner, Giorgos Giakoumakis, was relegated. Giakoumakis won the award by some distance too - he scored 26 league goals (of VVV-Venlo's total of 43), seven clear of Feyenoord's Steven Berghuis. Last time this happened in England was...

I know this marks me down as a rabid Tory, or something like that, but until this sort of thing meets a six month jail sentence, it will keep happening. I don't think that's where you go with that.

Winston Biscuit This season was the lowest ever points total needed to stay up in the PL


Liverpool (who were top at that point) were mathematically safe after 13 games.

Re: The generic transfer thread

Appalling from Raiola. FIFA really need to get a handle on this. He is demanding a €20m fee as part of negotiations on a new contract for Gianluigi Donnarumma. He's demanding a fee for a player who has been at the club since he was a boy, and isn't leaving. Disgusting. As a result it looks like Mila...

Re: LOLiverpooLOL - Next Season

Such an odd season for Liverpool. Top after 16 games. And of their final ten games, they won eight and drew two (the not so shite Nat Phillips contributing to five clean sheets and just six goals conceded). So essentially their entire season was determined by that period of 12 games in the middle of...

Re: Weekend Football

Fulham seemed to pick up valuable points December/January/February time but aside from that, they’ve been pretty pathetic all season, especially at home. Weren’t thumped too many times but simply had an atrocious offensive record. Some stats to go along with that: - Just 9 home goals scored all sea...

Re: LOLiverpooLOL - Next Season

tbf, his best 3 centre backs have be out for pretty much the whole season and Fabinho did a decent job back there. Easy with hindsight after a decent run but Phillips and Williams looked really iffy to begin with and serious a lack of pace. Still not convinced Williams is ready at his age to be pla...

Re: LOLiverpooLOL - Next Season

Stat mentioned on Sky last night that Liverpool have played just ten league games this season with Alisson in goal, Fabinho in midfield and two recognised centre-backs. And they've won all ten.

There's a couple more of these, although this is the first pair of teammates. He played with Lilian Thuram and has played against Th...
