Re: The generic transfer thread

Hendo Talk about wasters, he has got to be top of the list.


You should know you're doing it wrong when you sign your first professional terms at Manchester United, yet at 25 years old you are on your 9th club, and are only being offered a one-year deal.

Re: Next seasons kit choice?

Delay in receiving the kit, i.e. modelling it etc is because of a balls up behind the scenes. Otherwise we’d have seen the kit on Monday as was planned. Is there a balls up every year? Wouldn't surprise me tbf. We usually see the kit by second week of July and it tends to go on sale for the home fr...

Re: The generic transfer thread

Talking of youngsters, Liverpool apparently set to win the race to sign Fulham's 16 year old Harvey Elliott - he was at their 6-0 pre-season win at Tranmere last night, where Rhian Brewster scored twice on his first appearance for the 'senior' side. Elliott is 15 in this photo, the old looking chav....

Re: European Leagues Thread 2012/2013

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/48958963 As good a place as any for it - Marseille started their pre-season last night at Accrington Stanley. And lost 2-1, despite fielding a strong side that include Dmitri Payet. https://ichef.bbci.co.uk/onesport/cps/624/cpsprodpb/C8EA/production/_107843415_ca...

Re: VAR

Wasn't quite my point re protocols, so I'll repeat what I've written in earlier posts - DD actually makes a good point for one, if a referee can't make their mind up after a minute or so, then a 'clear and obvious error' has not occurred. As I said months, or maybe years, ago, clear and obvious is ...

Re: The generic transfer thread

Ndombele from Lyon to Spurs for €72M (€62M basic + €2.5M for each season they qualify for CL in the first 6 seasons he is there until €10M is reached) That's €62M then. I think they are spent, and this sort of transfer proves it. In what sense does it prove it? Ndombele was statistically one of the...

Joao felix signs for Atletico Madrid for 115 million, fifth most expensive transfer in history :shock: .Jesus wept. For a 19 year old who has had 1 okay season in a piss poor league. Football has officially lost the plot. I’d say 20 goals and 11 assists in 43 games is a bit better than okay in your...

It's not offensive, or threatening, it's cheeky and wasn't directed at England fans but just a nod to who she had scored agains...

Re: VAR

Another bad night for VAR last night, White's goal should have been given, there has to be a margin of error and the advantage given to the attacker when it's that close, the pictures and frame speed literally aren't available to definitively say she was offside there. As for the penalty, absolutel...

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

Good on Lamps - he had a very decent first season as a manager, I just hope Chelsea give him some rope, because it's a massive step up, he won't be able to sign anyone, and they've just lost Hazard. Do you think he had a very decent season? Surely he just achieved a par result for Derby, who've don...

Re: VAR

Replays can help a referee be more informed, which is a good thing, but it doesn't make the decision less debatable in matters of opinion. As I've tried to express before, this is the cultural acceptance problem when it comes to VAR. It doesn't matter whether or not you agree with the decision, and...

Re: European Leagues Thread 2012/2013

Hendo It wasn't that long ago that Deportivo were in the Champs League and getting beyond the group stages.


Mallorca weren't awful either - Samuel Eto'o spent a few years there, and I'm sure they picked up a cup or two.
