Re: Best/Worst Pundit

So for cricket it is the reserve team rather than the first team of Nasser, Gower, Athers and Botham but for Premier League football Alex is alongside top ex-managers and players. It takes a bit of getting used to and I have no objection in principle and Alex is as good as or better than some of th...

Re: Best/Worst Pundit

Genuine question. Are there any male pundits/commentators for netball and women's cricket? For netball, I don't think so, but then let's not be silly enough to suggest equivalence between women's football and men's netball. On women's cricket - yes. Certainly Sky's coverage of the women's game gene...

Look away sandman, but Messi's hat-trick at Betis was a thing of beauty.

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

They have basket case ownership down at Oldham judging by what has happened there in the past two years, not shocked he won't put up with it. Oldham will do what they always do and just appoint John Sheridan. Anyone know what the most number of times one person has been permanent manager of a singl...

Re: Champions League & Europa League 2018/19

Spurs or Man City v Ajax or Juventus
Barcelona or United v Liverpool or Porto

Juventus v Barcelona final, for me.

Re: LOLiverpooLOL - Next Season

From an English club perspective, Juventus v Barcelona in the QFs would be useful.

Have a weird feeling that the English clubs are going to be drawn against each other.

Re: The generic transfer thread

Winston Biscuit Militao signs for Real Madrid from Porto for €50M. Joins then in the summer.


21 years old, one Brazil cap, half a season in the Portugese league. €50m. Football has gone mad.
Mind you, that's only €4m more than they paid for a then 16 year old Vinicius Jr.

Re: England - the future....

Just Rice as a new face - the likes of Sancho, Wilson and Chilwell keep their places. Surprised to see RLC in there, didn't think he'd really been playing for Chelsea. Rice called up four days before he will rather awkwardly receive the Irish Young Player of the Year award. :oops: :lol: Southgate l...

You're not putting yourself in the shoes of the FA Sangers, you're not trolling ignore that cretin.

It isn't a matter of opinion it is a matter of what the FA will do. I just told you why Birmingham will get a heavier penalty but you choose to ignore it in order to reinforce your point. The FA will not have faith in them to provide adequate protection of players firstly due to the punch and then ...

Re: Brum Done?

Nope. The end results were different. A Birmingham supporter went on to the pitch to cause harm to an opposition player and did so. The level of stewarding/police was not sufficient to stop him and it is negligent on Birmingham's part. Don't forget they then had a steward nicked for assaulting Grea...
