Re: CheLOLsea

They've got previous for this, havn't they? Pretty sure they got a transfer ban for the signing of Gael Kakuta?

Re: CheLOLsea

Whilst the William one was technically a penalty, it definitely crossed the line between the defender giving away a penalty and the attacker "winning" a penalty.

Pedro's was such blatant attempt to cheat, he deserves an additional ban.

Either way, gutsy refereeing.

Re: Speculation - Tom Bradshaw

Roughly 1 goal in every 4 league games at Barnsley, did have a stand out 2 years at Walsall though, where his strike rate was almost 1 in every 2. 11 in 29 this year I think (inc cup) Which is pretty good in a rubbish team. They seem to quite like him on their forums Barnsley have new owners now do...

Re: LOLiverpooLOL - Next Season

also, as a general point, it seems a bit silly to try and point out that a team only did well because the opposition made mistakes, when the aim of the game is to apply pressure on the opposite team until they make a mistake, at which point you hope to capitalise. You could literally look at every ...

Re: Rumour - Chris Martin

I imagine we're waiting for them to sign a new striker first. Apparently Cameron Jerome is having a medical there today, after which I imagine he will be on his way. Bit of a weird one that, Jerome is hardly an upgrade on Martin... :| Alan Nixon said something on Twitter about Derby wanting more of...

Re: RIP - Cyrille Regis

I was too young to understand the racial context of his emergence with Batson and Cunningham, I just saw a fantastic footballer, who along with Kenny Dalglish was my favourite player. As I got older, I filled in the gaps and my admiration forvhim just grew. I've got a soft spot for West Brom and it ...

Re: Which was worse

Sorry Spizz because I normally agree with you but the last 12 months of Ian's hoofball was worse than Ian porterfield's two years old mid table meh. People tolerate hoofball if the results come and there seems to be a plan, the right personnel and there is 100% commitment shown by limited battlers....

Re: RUMOUR - Yoann Barbet

And much like our sadly departed kes, if you link every player to every other team in the league, you'll eventually get one right. IIRC, that numpty from Norwich who was as on here last year linking Reading to every player in the Opta top ten wrote for HITC. Anyone who claims Oliver Norwood is one o...

Re: European Leagues Thread 2012/2013

No League 1 thread so will put here. Darren Ferguson had a post match radio interview where talking about the referees in the game vs Plymouth where one of the Doncaster CBs was fouled for a goal, he first said "they are part time, fitness levels are a disgrace... they are rubbish etc etc"...

Re: Which was worse

I'm not old enough to remember the 70's but it always makes me laugh that Branfoot's hoofball always gets a mention in these sort of polls but never a mention of Porterfield's 2 years of unadulterated bum gravy. Believe me, Stam's team is like watching the 1970 Brazil team in comparison.

Shrewsbury spent most of the 80's in a league above us and we were a bigger club than them then as well.

Re: Rumour - Reise Allassani

It doesn’t matter if the signing worked or not, we still spent the money and smashed our transfer record, which kind of ruins your argument Smashed our transfer record for the second time in 7 months. As far back as I can remember (we're talking early 80's), our track record with spending big is pr...
