Re: Euro 2020

That was like watching Jaap Stam's second season. Can anyone explain why Foden, literally the only one showing movement or taking someone on with a degree of skill, got hooked instead of any of the other England midfield or forwards who were all absolute pish. Kane looks like he's nowhere near match...

Re: Rumour - Jack Tucker

5 centre backs would be optimal surely ? If there are no Academy grads ready to do a Holmes then adding a cheap 5th is not daft. All of the current 4 missed games through injury last season and towards the end both Morrison and Tom Mc were missing at the same time. It's not where I'd spend the majo...

Re: England - the future....

I'd actually consider SF to be the racist one for considering a nation to only include a single race and therefore disregarding the ethnic minorities in Scotland from being Scottish. Etc. :shock:

Snowflake Royal It's hard not to be arrogant when your nearest neighbours are best know for angry alcoholism and low life expectancy, sectarian violence and religious extremism, surrendering and strikes, and sheep and flem.

Re: Euro 2020

6ft Kerplunk There's no way Pavard should've been allowed to play on straight away, definitely looked like he was out cold for a few seconds and that should be enough for the medics to stop him carrying on.

I thought the protocol was any sign of concussion and you get auto hooked.

Re: England - the future....

IMO Scottish (and Welsh) comments about arrogance are generally aimed at the English as a nation. As with much of other people’s opinions about the English, it’s generally based on historical colonial empire-building attitudes, rather than current attitudes. Any Scot who is too blinded to see their...

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

yeah will be interesting on the wages in next seasons accounts (for the season just gone) Guessing those mentioned were all on 20kish. genuinely could be close to 150k a week with the players we've moved on in the last 2 years. Trying to think of dates, but would the last set of accounts also had t...

Re: Euro 2020

The xG comparison for the Scotland/Czechia game was 2.29 - 1.25; so on that matrix, Scotland should have won. As a comparison, the England v Croatia xG was 1.5 - 0.54. I read this morning that Schick's 2nd goal had an xG of 0.01 - in other words, a 1 in a hundred chance of a goal....... I find that...

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

Brentford have spent years and years getting their approach right, and fair play to them. They do it, they do it very well and have committed to it. Its very simple to say follow the Brentford model, but it really aint that simple. Brentford have actually spent an absolute wedge in the last few yea...

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

Brentford have literally just been promoted through good scouting, sensible signings and knowing when to sell up. Which is absolutely the model, the "problem" is if/when more clubs move to follow it, then you likely have a lot more clubs uncovering similar players, so the pool of players ...

Or just better stranded. There will always be clubs pursuing bonkers approaches or just plain making poor decisions / getting unlucky.

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

How on earth is the ITV co-commentator calling that an excellent strike.

He's scuffed it into the ground and then back off his own shin to dribble in past a keeper who could have walked over and picked it up but instead dived short and missed it.

Also, her accent makes her sound thick as pig shit.

Re: England - the future....

Here is a hypothetical question; if we get through to the quarter finals without conceding a goal, and then Maguire is declared fit - do you change the side to accomodate him? Depends. How fit is fit, how ready is to play is fit, and how well have the others been playing? Fit isn't a lot of good if...

Re: England - the future....

I think Sterling offers a nice alternative that gives us a range of threat, so I'd definitely stick with him. Defend deep? Mount and Foden can pile on the pressure, high line - Sterling will run you ragged. Grealish will have to settle for deputising for Mount / Foden I think. Don't want too many t...

Good result? Well done.
Awful result? Lol.
