Re: MATCHWATCH : Luton Town (a)

Meite isn't a winger and he's not there to cross. We don't play with wingers who cross. We have forwards who cut inside. We could do with more crossing from the left for Meite to bully a LB on the far post, mind. If anything the fact they like to cut inside shouldn’t be a bad thing because Richards...

Re: Ups & Downs 2020/21

So Norwich up and Sheffield United will be down tonight with a defeat. Assuming it’s West Brom and Fulham who join United, and let’s say for the sake of it, Bournemouth and Watford go back up (which is fairly feasible), the 21/22 Prem will be the exact same as the 19/20 one with the exception of Le...

Re: THE BETTING THREAD

£10 at 50/1 for: Brentford Middlesbrough Blackpool MK Dons Burton Shrewsbury All BTTS £5 at 10/1: over 1 goal in each 12:30 Chanpionship game Don’t tend to go with teams to win as the unpredictability nature really kicks in now whereas there does seem to be more goals around so tend to stick with that

Re: England - the future....

Last minute Croatia consolation sends them through at the expense of us - another disappointing campaign overall and it’s hard not to look at it being the end of Boothroyd Decided to walk away rather than see out the end of his contract. Think he’ll struggle to get another job IMO badly failed with...

Re: SpuROFLs

With all the talk of there being discontent among certain players within the Spurs’ squad, I wonder what Kane thinks of Jose For all the talk of them being defensive, I don’t think I’d be incorrect in saying this is Kane’s best season so far in a Spurs shirt - with arguably Jose improving him as an ...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Cardiff City (h)

Fairly disappointing performance, lack of real intensity, lack of chances created and a fairly defeatist attitude all around Still, we have a strong core to the squad in key positions with Holmes blossoming again (plus McIntyre with positive signs). Laurent and Rinomhota have complemented each other...

Re: Champions League/Europa League 2020/21

genome Well. Their semi final is on the Tuesday after the final, on the Sunday. Wonder if City will rest some players for the final.


Perhaps so but given many of their “second” team lost to 10 men Leeds, perhaps Pep will reconsider

Re: LOLiverpooLOL - Next Season

Liverpool lacking a goal scorer at this moment - Firmino will get the bulk of the stick but not sure how much his role has changed from last season - IMO he only stands out more because Salah and Mane aren’t scoring Whilst I thought they played well, found them to be quite disappointing in the last ...

Re: Where do we go from here 21/22 season?

Good start aside, there are still some pretty big red flags flying when it comes to this team. Both Brums games, Preston, Stoke and Millwall at home in particular were old school games of the kind we've got much too familiar with in recent years. Add to that Pauno doesn't seem to have a plan b once...

Marcus Maddison has had his loan spell cut short at Bolton Cited his reasons as “not enjoying football any more” and that football has “broke him” - to the verge of possible retirement.

Re: VAR

Are the PGMOL trying to get VAR scrapped ? This weekend has been an abomination. And so it goes on in the WBA v Southampton game where they 'couldn't put the lines on the screen' so disallowed what looked like a perfectly good goal I just can’t believe how poorly it’s operated Although it had seeme...

Two separate bets of Pereira to score first (£1 at 6/1)
And West Brom to win (£2 at 9/4)

Looking good, wish I’d done it as a double though!

Re: European Leagues Thread 2012/2013

Just perception, probably a recency thing because Dortmund came close in 18/19, and also because broadly speaking the head to head matches between the sides are normally close. The Bundesliga is arguably the least exciting league in Europe - in chronological order since Klopp's second title win wit...

Re: European Leagues Thread 2012/2013

I’d argue with two teams fighting for the title, on average you’d expect them to be neck and neck for the title - maybe it doesn’t work that simply In comparison, the Bundesliga (which is usually presided by Dortmund and Munich) seems to be fairly close most years - although I was alarmed at how far...

Re: European Leagues Thread 2012/2013

Rangers four games from an unbeaten season in the SPL, recording their 17th consecutive win at the weekend. Hardest of those games with me the final Glasgow derby of the season at Ibrox on 2nd May. Also close to setting a slightly ridiculous goals conceded record, at just 11 so far this season in 3...
