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

Time to add Sampson to your death list I reckon. The FA appear to have chucked him under the nonce/sex offender bus based on their statement about his time at the Bristol academy. Will it be suicide or pedalo vigilante squad?

Re: Under 23"s Supposedly not ready for first team football.

Huddersfield's loss will undoubtedly be Bradford and Halifax's gain. Not sure it will make that much difference. Bradford's reputation was better than Huddersfield's anyway (based on what my colleague tells me, her son having bounced around most of the academies in the area). Man City seem to be ab...

Re: Best/Worst Pundit

Glenn Hoddle doing the England games is almost making me wish Andy Townsend was brought back.

Or they are just average at international level and its highlighted without their much better foreign clubmates to make them look good.

Seems plausible given the Keita transfer has been reported for next July.

Re: Best/Worst Pundit

What's the wording of the rule? Technically he didn't go into the crowd did he, didn't even get as far as the advertising boards. The fans were the ones encroaching. Or does it come under 'inciting' the fans. ALOL at the steward claiming he was assaulted by Aguero somehow forgetting that there were ...

tbf I glanced at the photos from Saturday's game and thought that it was nice to have a decent kit for a change. Then I remembered we were away.

Re: LOLiverpooLOL - Next Season

Take £150M for Coutinho and waft some of it in Spurs' direction to tempt Alli away would be my advice. Spend whatever's left over on rescuing Gylfi from South Wales and some kind of a left back.

Re: Penalty Shoot Outs

They've been trialling this recently haven't they, can't remember which tournament it was in. It was fine other than I'd been flicking channels so missed the bit between end of extra time and being of penalties where they probably explained it so was a bit wtf when a team took two in a row. Which ma...

There was lovely footage, that I'm too lazy to find, where all the players had to shake Ronnie's hand as they walked past him as part of that whole shaking hands with refs and opposition thing.

Re: The generic transfer thread

Mooy to Hudds for £8M That's a lot of money for them to spend and not actually improve their squad. He was their main man last year when on loan. If they didn't sign him their squad would've been significantly weaker and its a signing with no real risk as they know exactly what they're signing. The...

Nice shirts but the sponsor's logo placement makes it look a bit sunday league and sponsored by the local Chinese restaurant.

Re: The generic transfer thread

I think its just because I'm getting old and can remember when anything over £1M was a big deal.
