Re: MATCHWATCH : Blackburn Rovers (h) sponsored by a point off Europe

the live updates imply we're having a load of shots but remarkably few threatening ones.

Re: Weekend Football

Scummers looking absolutely woeful against everyone’s favourite plucky funded by shit tons of dirty Russian money underdogs Bournemouth. They’re playing like they’ve spent the day in Scuttz Gak Garage. They were alright, until they hit the Bournemouth penalty area when they seemed to have no idea. ...

Re: Champions League/Europa League 2019/20

Alf-Inge Haaland's kid. This year I’ve only grown five centimetres,” Erling Braut Haaland said in an interview in November 2017, a statement which, understandably, led the journalist to query the “only” part. “Well, last year I grew 11-12 centimetres,” came the reply from the then 17-year-old. He's ...

Re: Champions League/Europa League 2019/20

Liverpool lost at Napoli last year and have done this year. They qualified out of a group that also included PSG - they will pick up 10 to 12 points from the Salzburg and Genk fixtures and likely beat Napoli at Anfield to top the group. https://d2x51gyc4ptf2q.cloudfront.net/content/uploads/2019/09/...

Re: 2019/2020 FA Cup

I presume one team will get a bye in the 1st round proper after Bury’s demise rather than there being some “jigging” about by the FA like having a “lucky loser” be re-instated from the 4th round qualifying. you know what, I'd not even clocked that. They are speaking to stakholders at the mo - I wou...

Re: 2019/2020 FA Cup

3rd QF is 40 ties 4th (and final) QF adds the conference to the 40 remaining sides, to give 32 games and then things get serious.

2nd Qualifying Round and, as far as I can see, its still quite regional. 1 Marine v Dunston or Sunderland RCA 2 Southport v Scarborough Athletic or Marske United 3 Chester v Altrincham 4 Curzon Ashton v Blyth Spartans 5 Bradford (Park Avenue) v Morpeth Town 6 Irlam v York City 7 Tadcaster Albion or ...

Re: This is Poor

However, as a side point, there was a line I do agree with - "if you don't get near the ball for the first 30 mins or so (v WBA and v Huddersfield) we will be 2-0 down at half time with the game gone. I hope this happens at the moment due to the team still settling in." I have a fear that ...

Re: This is Poor

Yeah, can easily cope with poor when we've been utterly diabolical within the last 18 months. Since relegation in 2013, we've had two play-off or thereabouts campaigns, one mixed bag (safely midtable until the end of the cuprun and the arse fell out of the side), and three relegation fights. The las...

Re: England - the future....

It'll be players, like Sancho, who are brought up away from the English game that will get there first, imho. Germany may become a good finishing school for young English talent but for the likes of Sancho their formative years are still over here. Interestingly I think Germany have suffered a simi...

Re: England - the future....

Actually, even in the recent youth game I watched (England vs Italy), you could see a step difference in how the Italian kids approached the game. They reached the final, iirc, while England lost on penalties in the semi - at least they're getting their practise in! Bobby Duncan, now at Fiorentina, ...

Re: England - the future....

I mean, we don't have a Xavi, Pirlo or Modric. But I just feel there are better options than what we choose to pick. I guess Scholes was in that class and was criminally wasted by England It's not about the individual players, but about the lack of technical ability and mental strength endemic to t...

Re: England - the future....

Makes you wonder just how shite the Czech Republic are. not at their best, that's for sure. with any smaller country, your strength in depth is lacking, so while you might have one or two talents, most of the squad are going to be journeymen and your subs bench an accident waiting to happen. Take K...
