Re: Best player you've ever seen play against us

Ronaldo had blistering acceleration and exceptional ball control, technically the best player I have seen playing against us, but he was wasteful in possession, a bit too heads down. What made Henry in particular so good was his awareness of everything going on around him. I guess that's the differe...

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

Couldn't give a shit about the InFirm. A plague on both houses.

But since you ask, wouldn't surprise me if they went for an ex player. Henrik Larsson, maybe.

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

are you suggesting Vic is talking shite? :wink: Again. Apparently 5 is 50% of 12 if you count Neil Lennon twice. Hardly them tending to go for Catholic managers. Add that to his recent assertion that Liverpool-Everton being a fundentally sectarian rivalry, which was news to pretty much all of Merse...

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

So when you include Burns and Lennon twice it takes it to 50% so yes they do tend to go for RCs. Interestingly (or not) people often assumed that King Kenny was RC, because of the Celtic connection when nearly every player was, but his first choice as a Protestant would have been Rangers who didn't...

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

They tend still to go for RC managers so I think that rules Fat Frank out. Of their 12 managers since Tommy Burns, 7 have not been Catholic (incidentally, neither was Jock Stein), 4 have been Catholic (all Northern Irish as well), 2 of which were Neil Lennon, and the other (Billy Stark) had a Prote...

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

Lampard? Not sure he'd be the right choice, but he does strike me as someone who might do better 'motivating' under-performing teams than managing high profile ones. I'm hoping he ends up at Celtic for a nice rivalry with Stevie G. They tend still to go for RC managers so I think that rules Fat Fra...

Re: Rival Watch

Stranded Bristol have won their last 3 at home but haven't picked up a point away since December 1st. They are the dictionary definition of inconsistant.

Re: Best player you've ever seen play against us

Not the best player, but best performance -- Brian Jenson the Burnley keeper at Turf Moor in the 2008 / 2009 season pulled off save after save with a little bit of help from the woodwork . He was phenomenal in that game. We should have been about 10-0 up and then Robbie Blake and his stupid fcuking...

Sutekh
tidus_mi2 Wait, there's only 3 sub windows right? This is the 4th.

1) Holmes
2) Olise
3) Swift
4) Tetek + Baldock


The first was at half time so isn’t a game stoppage.


The FIFA website confirms this. 3 Windows plus half time

Oh yes, good shout on that one. :lol:
