No surprise. You can live with Pulisball when it is winning games but when it goes wrong it must be depressing to watch. Just 29pts from the 31 games played in 2017 apparently.

No JVDB for this one, so would imagine Bacuna will move back into midfield with Richards potentially coming back in,

Re: European Leagues Thread 2012/2013

Benevento lose in the last minute again!!!! Currently 0 points from 13 games. Pretty sure they won't get more then 10 points all season. Apparently the first team in any of the major European leagues to lose their first 13 games of a season. Were previously tied with the 1930-31 Man United side. 3 ...

Re: Relegation

Just 5 points above the drop and Bolton and Sunderland away in the next 4. If we lose those and fail to win at home in our next 2 then il be very worried. I'm already pretty worried in that this side struggles to make chances and score goals Or - Just 8 points off the play-off places with a game in...

Re: FIFA U17 World Cup

We need a big attitude change in this country. Maybe the success of the under 17 to 21s will help That? They certainly seem a good enough crop. Foden, Brewster et al. But will those two really get the minutes needed? Jesus Gabrial Is only 2 years ahead of those players in years (I think) but miles ...

Re: England - the future....

Daily Mail website (I know) has "revealed" Southgate's plan for the WC and his preferred formation and XI

Hart

Walker (as wing back)
Stones
Dier
Jones
Rose (as wing back)

Lallana
Henderson
Winks

Ali

Kane

So a 3-2-3-1-1 formation of sorts.

Re: Pure Speculation - Tshibola

Question on this - as MK terminated his season long loan, could he play for Villa now or will he have to wait until the Jan window at least? Not that he'll play anyway but interested if anyone knows the rules around that.

Re: World Cup 2018

Shouldn't ranking only be based on competitive games as friendlies are generally used by nations for experimenting and generally the higher rank you are the less interest and desire you have about the things. Certainly explains why England continually play the same old faces in their friendlies tho...

, they didn't help themselves by having a poor world cup as well as draws against Luxembourg. if you look at Luxembourg's recent results you'd be surprised, for a mini-country.

Re: World Cup 2018

Italy out, how the hell did them and Spain get drawn in the same group? I heard someone put it down to them sending a scratch side out to a friendly to some very weak side, that they lost, and that had quite a negative impact on their ranking and so they lost their seeding for the qualifiers.
