Re: Euro 2020

That's a penalty.....not that I want it to be. Why no VAR check? Yeah I was surprised at that. Not a clear and obvious error. All been a bit shit tonight. Been like watching a top Championship side away to a lower end PL side in the 3rd round. Away team raised their game, home team surprised by it ...

Re: Euro 2020

I suspect that number isn't that much more than the entourages of the G7/D10 held in Cornwall last week; didn't see President Macron or Chancellor Merkel having to spend 10 days at the Heathrow Travelodge.............. Agreed but it is more the fact that they have said no once to UEFA over this, ri...

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

Scott Parker now being rumoured. Shambles. Ouch - from sideways move to Bournemouth to current favourite for the Spurs job - I guess just because he played there. Will screw up Bournemouth's plans though, so that'll be fun. Think they should have been going for a wise old head for a season, give th...

Re: Euro 2020

See UEFA are threatening to take the latter stages away from Wembley and move to Budapest unless the UKG exempt around 2500 delegates from quarantine rules. They said no for the CL Final and it got shifted but numbers a lot lower in Europe now than the UK, so imagine they will make the exemption ra...

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

Possibly, but ended the summer with Mason in charge again, when you made it clear it wouldn't be him and Kane gone, would not be a good look. Even with the Kane money it'll be hard to attract the sort of players they may want when the club looks like such a mess and the chance to play in the Europe...

Re: Copa America 2021

Sutekh The intention is to make the Copa every 4 years played in the same summer as the Euros so why can’t they just wait to 2024 for the next one given the current mess ?


Probably as they would have had to pay money back to broadcasters, sponsors etc. So money.

Re: Earliest WC memory

'86 tournament for me - have a really vivid memory of being a bit confused that the scorer of the first Argentinian goal was called Brown.

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

So it now won't be Gattuso for Spurs.

This is getting beyond embarrassing for them - taking time to get it right is one thing but for it to play out in public so much makes it look farcical.

They'll offer to Harry Kane before the summer is out.

Re: European Leagues Thread 2012/2013

Cattadella went 1-0 up in the 2nd leg making it 1-1 on agg. Venezia then had a player sent off in the first half, Venezia then had another player sent off on 70 minutes, 2nd half was apparently just wave after wave of Cittadella attacks, Venezia then scored in injury time to make it 2-1 and they we...

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

NathStPaul Gattuso the favourite for the Spurs job.

And their supporters moaned about Mourinho.....


Given he quit Fiorentina today due to an argument over transfers, am not sure he is exactly the fit Spurs need.

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

That's an odd one for me. Unless Fulham were looking to get rid anyway. Think Fulham have a lot of players out of contract etc and he wasn't exactly loved there. Surprised Bournemouth want him as he has been average to be honest - they should have gone up when they did and never looked like threate...

Re: Contract situation at end of 2020/21 season.

You do have to acknowledge just how insane the Championship is and the levels of spending involved. There is no 'sensible' way of turning a club like Reading into promotion candidates. Either you throw a ton of money over a few seasons and hope you get promoted before FFP hits or you basically just...

Re: Euro 2020

Very glad Eriksen is alive. I didn’t see the incident, but the photos tell the story. Will he play again or is that it for him, like poor Muamba? Read this morning that if he has had a cardiac arrest, which seems likely, it will be illegal for him to play in Italy again so in the unlikely event he ...

Going to be quite tough next season for the play-off winner, I would think.

Final not till late June with first game on 6th August, so will have half he break between seasons and time to build the squad as everyone else.

Re: Euro 2020

My only annoyance at this tournament is that the 3rd placed teams can go through. Really takes away some of the drama of a big team going out when they don't get a win after just the first game And then as per 2016 go on to win the thing. Weren't Portugal the first team to win a major international...
