Re: New Kits 17/18

Don't know if I like this or not. Velez Sarsfield have gone very old school in design and plain colour for a special edition kit.

Re: European Leagues Thread 2012/2013

Aves beat Sporting Lisbon to win the Portuguese cup for the first time after being promoted to the top division last year. It's confirmed after that due to an admin error Aves didn't register themselves to be able to compete in European competitions and so they cannot take the Europa League place o...

Re: New Kits 17/18

So they have run out of shirts but can afford to get a one-off produced for the final? Have they not heard of doing the laundry? Not quite - brilliantly, this is in fact generic striped Nike top, with the sponsors and badge stuck on. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DdvIfBkU8AAjJxn.jpg

Re: World Cup 2018

Icardi left out of the Argentina squad. I know someone good has to miss out up front for them, but Icardi?! Would have been braver of Sampaoli to make 'the Southgate call' and indicate to Higuain, as good as he is, that his international career might be winding up. Icardi is a strange one though. F...

Medium-sized rumours that Liverpool are interested. Can't see it though, as Buffon would only join as first-choice, and I don't think Klopp would want to set an improving Karius back a season.

Re: European Leagues Thread 2012/2013

Buffon to leave Juventus. Italy knows how to do football legends, doesn't it. He is up there with Maldini. He will play his 656th and final game for Juventus this weekend (and 876th club game in all). he's not retiring though - says he is considering offers to play elsewhere (not in Italy). Given Do...

Made this point earlier, but it's a defence that has conceded just once from open play in eight games, including clean sheets against Germany and Brazil, and just that penalty against Italy.

Re: England - the future....

Whilst admittedly on paper the defence isn't going to trouble many opposition managers, this is a team that has conceded just one goal from open play in eight games since we lost 3-2 in France this time last year.

Re: England - the future....

As above, pretty happy with the squad. Are we not heavy on defenders though? You've got Maguire, Stones, Jones and Cahill as centre-backs, and Walker who can play there. Then you have Walker, Trippier and Alexander-Arnold who can play right-back, and Rose, Young and Delph. Surely we could have lost ...

Moyes gone too.

So that's Pardew, Allardyce and Moyes back on the managerial roundabout. Wonder where they will end up next?

Re: European Leagues Thread 2012/2013

I quite enjoy the madness of the Serie B play off system with the amount of teams involved not even confirmed until the season is over If the team finishing 3rd is 10 points or more ahead of 4th place then they are automatically promoted and there are no play offs. If there are less than 10 points ...

Was at Craven Cottage last night - Fulham were back in irrepressible mood, having had a couple of weeks off at Birmingham and in the first leg of this play-off semi-final. Derby turned up determined to waste time from the off - bizarre scenes where Scott Carson was warned by the referee for time-wa...
