Re: BFTG Bristol

Teams simply wouldn't do zonal marking if there was no advantage. Where man-to-man marking does have a massive advantage is in the lower leagues - teams have less preparation time of a less focused nature, they have less able or less fit players, and its an easier job to communicate. Set pieces all ...

It would be, you know, not unexpected that they end up alright but really quite, quite far from being the best in the world.

Re: Weekend Football

Considering the bloke wasn't exactly dawdling off it seems a bit much to give him a second yellow, the ref's got himself on national telly though so I'm sure he's delighted It was about him not going to the side of the pitch the ref told him to go off on. He ignored the referee's instructions and t...

Re: LOLiverpooLOL - Next Season

The only team that can stop Liverpool winning the title now is ……. Liverpool. They'll have to cope with the pressure of leading from such an early stage, but barring miracles, they've stopped the rot of their (league) winless run. Now they just need to win three in a row to shut the Manure fans up ...

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

When Ole Gunnar Solskjær was appointed Manchester United manager, he wanted to emulate some of Alex Ferguson’s achievements in the job. But mirroring the start of the 1989-90 campaign was probably low down on his list. United’s disappointing 1-1 draw with Arsenal at Old Trafford on Monday night lef...

Genuine question, andrew - if that is your real name, how many cup finals does that leave us with this season?

Re: Worst start for many years.

If the OP is arguing that a teams performance over the first 10 games (or indeed any 10 games) is strongly correlated to your performance over 46, then I don't think you need to delve too deeply into the stats to agree. Soz, Green, not sure that holds up. Take 2011-12: After 10 games, we were on a ...

Re: GOMES OUT!

You see, part of me thinks the strikers are an issue (after all, they aren’t scoring). But having thought about it, how many times have “poor strikers” gone on to be successful elsewhere? Grabban is class for Forest and was for Sunderland, couldn’t score for us. Vydra for Derby was scoring for fun,...

stealthpapes The similar case I can think of would be Manny Omoyinmi, which lead to a replay of the game.


Was a little different - he had played for another club in an earlier round in the competition.


aye, this is less severe than that, I think.
