Re: VAR

There was quite a telling bit in the build up to the Merseyside derby where they analysed a Crouch goal from 2006 and showed that VAR would have likely found him offside. As has been shown again and again, the offside rule is being implemented more strictly than it has been for decades. Good to see ...

Re: BFTG - Blackpool

Bowen really should have identified that Burley vs Gnanduillet would be a complete mismatch . Blackett and Miazga at CB, Ejaria and Meite on the bench to get a winner if required, and we would have avoided an unnecessary midweek trip to Blackpool. Obviously he is doing a very good job at Reading, b...

you've spelt 'thundercunt' wrong.

You lack the intelligence to debate the game, you're the one being abusive not me.


I'm not so sure chief, he nailed it for me.


cheers skipper!

Re: MATCHWATCH : Blackpool (h) sponsored by cup fever

I hadn't really realised how much of a tit you are. Anyway, were chasing a play of spot. Would like us to progress here though. You don't really have a clue. We aren't good enough to finish in the top 6, we are ending up firmly in mid table. Its "playoff" not "play of"........ J...

Re: BFTG - Derby

I thought we were really sloppy for great spells but had enough to beat an increasingly tired and ill-disciplined Derby side. Penalty 1: two handed shove, correct decision, and glad Adam notched. He was mostly good, but a few issues with pace and positioning. Well-worked second, crisp passing. Penal...

Re: LOLiverpooLOL - Next Season

Liverpool did seem a bit rusty - might have been trying to play it safe with two games in a week in a desert?

Also, Monterrey a wee bit better than I thought they'd be. Well organised.

Re: Champions League/Europa League 2019/20

Surely splitting into divisions would make more sense.

CONCACAF had something like this for the Gold Cup

genome I thought Haaland played for RB Leipzig, turns out no, that's RB Salzburg. Does anyone else mix those two clubs up?

Re: LOLiverpooLOL - Next Season

There was a decent piece on the 1981 one, where Liverpool got spanked by Flamengo, here: https://www.theguardian.com/football/blog/2019/dec/15/flamengo-liverpool-club-world-cup. Post-2000, I would certainly agree with the whole thing is just an elaborate corporate branding exercise for the bigger cl...

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

According to my Boro supporting colleague Warnock has always said that missing out on managing Boro is something he's always regretted. So basically add Boro to a list of about 91 clubs Warnock has always been desperate to manage. We may well be the only club he doesn't want to manage. He would of ...

Re: LOLiverpooLOL - Next Season

I liked the lobbed goal - very well taken - and the fifth went from defensive header to goal in, I think, 10 touches.

BLYTH - the longest day (and a half!). Did you go?
