Re: Rival Watch

Hound Fulham being a bit useless again

Suspect that 2nd promotion spot is between them and Leeds - difficult choice there

Quite how Ben Pearson stayed on the pitch is a mystery for that awful tackle but as it’s against Fulham will let him off

It’s ok, one of his mates has helped even the numbers

Re: Record Watch 2019/20

Quick Update : Liverpool are still looking amazing, but only need to drop 7 points because of the lower number of games. 7 looks a lot to drop at the moment :shock: West Brom are 2 points behind the required run rate. They can still get 123. Ipswich are 4 points behind the required run rate (and ye...

Re: New manager Brendan Rodgers *confirmed*

There's plenty of managers that organise good players well to get the best from them, but struggle with those that are no so competent. Rodgers seems to be one of those. Can't deny he's doing a great job at the moment and he's not relying on a Suarez/Sturridge style partnership falling in his lap th...

Re: VAR

Yeah no VAR cock-ups this weekend. Interesting to see the red card overturned. Though it isn't going to be long before on-field yellow cards are also overturned. And quite rightly if the FA are already saying they are happy to correct the decisions of the refs, why are yellow cards exempt? A defend...

Re: Weekend Football

How good are Leicester looking ? Good football, lethal upfront and solid at the back Yeah like last time they've got me watching MotD again. Really enjoy their counterattacking Massive Christmas for Leicester. The play Norwich next - so would expect a win there but then: 21/12 - Man City (a) 26/12 ...

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

Hendo
genome Wan-Bissaka was epic.


Proper defender.

VAR spot on to give Utd the pen in the first half as well.

As everyone is well aware I'm not a fan of VAR, but got both decisions right in this case.
Only real surprise is that the penalty wasn't given in the first place.

Re: ArsenaLOL

I don't think it'll take half that amount to fix it IF they get in a manager who can organise and put the structure in place to provide a half decent platform for their attacking players to perform from.. You only have to look at how Rodgers turned round Leicesters form, or Hasenhüttl sorted out So...

Re: ArsenaLOL

They are a real broken team that has cost hundreds of millions. None of them seem to have any idea about team play. I suspect they've been ripped off with those transfer fees as well. How can a club let their best player, ie Ramsay, just walk out like that? I wonder if any top manager will want tha...

Re: VAR

Can we just get rid of linos now and be done with it. There is no point having a linesman now. None at all. He has to keep his flag down in any tight situation to avoid this kind of thing happening, so may as well not be there. Can't be far off not needing refs either. At least that way we get a VA...

Re: FA Cup away day memories

Has anyone mentioned the 4-0 defeat at Swindon in the late 70'/early 80's ? Cold, wet, lost, seriously concerned outside the ground afterwards. 1974. All I can remember is Robin Friday looking like he was dying of asthma attack / hangover on the halfway line. Totally gubbed but they were a division...

Sheffield Utd players stop completely because of linesman. Play the whistle, I know, but it’s just another shambles


To be honest, I really can’t stand VAR but that’s down to the players 100%. It’s schoolboy stuff not to play to the whistle

Guess so, but still a nonsense

FC Saarbrucken, of the German fourth tier, sacked their manager despite being top of the league. Dirk Lottner was given the boot after two consecutive league defeats, with his record prior to that having been 13 wins and one draw, as well as the side beating FC Koln of the Bundesliga in the cup.
