Re: Nations League & Friendlies

[b]The complicated bit is that the Nations League doubles up as a repecharge tournament for teams who don't qualify for the Euros (replacing current play-off) - 1 spot is available to each league, so means a smaller nation will qualify for Euro 2020. If the league finished today, one of Georgia, Ma...

Re: The Football League Thread 18/19

Impressive record. Their last football league win was 31 December 2011 at home to Port Vale (and that was their first win in eight). LLLLLLLLDDDDDLLDLLLDLLLLLLDDLLLLDDLL is their complete record since. 36 games, 11 draws and 25 defeats. Scored 27, conceded 66. Just 2 clean sheets, and have failed t...

Re: Club 1871 - the What, When, Where, How, Who & Why Thread

By the way, not heard the Bill Oddie chant for about 18 months - perhaps there's a connection between singing that regularly and getting results in the pitch. Club 1871 should give it a go, a whole 90 minutes to make up for it's absence.

Re: Gourlay

We know so little yet complain so much! It’s been said that the Meite deal is very dependent on performances; a 4 year deal could be dependent on 20 appearances per season, 10 goals, adherence to a pitch positioning strategy... who knows! Let’s just remember that everyone who slated Novakovich for ...

Re: Clement

Simeone aswell. Warnock. Many more. I think most manager are nuts. How did I forget Simeone? He's probably the most nuts of all! I'd argue Alex Ferguson was on the edge of nuts too. Bob Paisley was not nuts and look what Liverpool achieved under him so I'm presuming having to be "nuts" to...

Re: The Football League Thread 18/19

Macclesfield equal the British League record of 36 games in the league without a win matching Derbys record from their abject 07-08 season. They haven't won a league game since 2012. Impressive record. Their last football league win was 31 December 2011 at home to Port Vale (and that was their firs...

Also Omar Richards apparently has a long term injury

Now just waiting to see whether Ezatolahi, Jaakkola, Bacuna, Gunter, Meyler and Yiadom (plus youngsters Loader and McIntyre) will get any injuries from their international duty.

Re: Solutions to problems (instead of moaning)

No one gets relegated in October. Of course they don't but we have all seen with our own eyes how dreadful we are this season, particularly at home, and with the poor points tally earned so far it is probably going to take mid-table form for the rest of the season to avoid relegation. As I see it, ...

He wasn't the £800k star performer we signed him to be but I've always been mystified why Asaba was put on the outs list by Burns when he had proven pedigree in the third tier. It's an even more strange decision considering our options at the time were Fleck, McIntyre, Williams and Brayson :oops: T...
