Re: European Leagues Thread 2012/2013

They've had some success before - a couple of Norwegian Cups - and they last made the first round proper of the (then) UEFA Cup in 2004-05. What I can't find though is why on earth they have a forward slash in their club name! Is it not as simple as the team representing two towns or districts? Bod...

Re: European Leagues Thread 2012/2013

AC Milan play against FK Bodo/Glimt in the Europe league later this week. Listened to Norwegian football journalist Lars Sivertsen today who explained that FK Bodo/Glimt are a historically small club from a very small town in the north of the country inside the arctic circle, yet after 18 games of ...

Re: Generic clubs in financial crisis Thread

I am never normally in favour of large clubs helping out small clubs in financial difficulties but they simply have to if supporters aren't allowed back in to stadiums soon. The National League and the couple of leagues below will simply fold if they are not given financial support.

Re: CheLOLsea

Just having a look at some stats and Rogério Ceni has 1152 appearances for Sao Paolo. Mental. They have state championships and national championships in Brazil so, although the big clubs tend to play reserve teams in state championships against weaker sides, there's potential to play 80+ games a s...

Sanguine
Old Man Andrews Sanguine deliberately removing me from the quote. Pathetic.


Get a grip pal, I just quoted the last sentence, as it was the bit I was replying too.

Apologies, it is a very interesting conversation.

Re: CheLOLsea

Jeez, that's insane. Got to be on track to break the all-time football record for most appearances? Will have to go some to beat Paulo Maldini who is on 647. Of course it is doable if he stays at Milan for the next 7 years or so but I can't see him not going to one of the elite clubs eventually. I ...

I did not clap for the NHS because it was cultish bullshit But I have told my family that I want to give my 6,000 book library to the NHS if they can find a room for it, as a long term thank you to NHS workers and support staff.

Re: UEFA Nations League

The "had that have been different then you wouldn't feel like that" argument is well beneath you Sanguine. The fact is it wasn't different and Argentina have been largely poor whilst Messi has played for them, he doesn't have the ability to lift others around him imo. Ronaldo has that attr...

Re: CheLOLsea

how are they going to shift him? he cost £71M and is on 150 bags a week he has been a little bit 'shit' into the bargain They send him out on loan somewhere and hope he impresses enough for someone to come in for him next summer I guess. That or they find a club who are just as big of a bunch of mu...

Re: CheLOLsea

Chelsea have agreed a deal with French club Rennes to sign goalkeeper Edouard Mendy. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/54238075 You'd think that would be the end of Kepa now and they'll be doing everything they can to shift him. how are they going to shift him? he cost £71M and is on 150 bags a ...

Hope more teams do it, it`s a bloody choice not mandatory. keep politics out of football. It isn't political, it is a social issue that everyone who isn't racist should be in support of.

Re: Rumour - Rodrigo Riquelme

Don't remember the twitter reaction, I can imagine the kids getting giddy over us spending a load of cash, but on here I think the general consensus was why the fcuk are we spending that kind of money on a player we don't need. A bit of yes and no on that one, I think. Most recognised that he was a...

It is comparable in terms of everyone getting overly excited and then it turning to shit which was my point.

He's on loan; if it doesn't work out he goes back to Madrid. Not remotely comparable with a record fee and 4 year contract for Aluko.
