Re: PL Relegation

Three of the four Ws will go. I reckon the one to survive might well be Wolves, much as it pains me to say it. I just think McCarthy has got enough nous to keep them up.

Re: City a MASSIVE draw in Manchester

To be fair, they did say 45k, but there were definitely less than that there. I would say about 38k at most. Tickets sold, not the number in attendance. I thought it was automatically done via the turnstiles though? Thought it was Premier League rules that state 'attendances' have to be done as tic...

First one demonstrates why you should always preview picture posts before putting them up.

Re: Carling cup 1/4 finals

Elmer Park Ferguson needs to look at his second string defenders. Evans is not good enough


The way Cole turned around Evans for his second(?) goal was just amazing. It was like Evans wasn't there - not what you'd expect even from a second-string defender at a club like Man Utd.

Re: Football Arrests Decrease by 10%

Also, comparing the SA World Cup to the Dutch/Belgian Euro 2000 is a bit disingenuous, given that one was a hell of a lot easier to get to and wasn't held during straitened economic times. Is it any wonder that casual hoolies didn't make it out to SAfrica, but could easily hop on the EuroStar to get...

Re: Generic clubs in financial crisis Thread

Yes, I was trying to simplify the maths TBF.

And like I said, I don't necessarily agree with the argument*, just thought I could explain where I thought it was coming from.

* - Actually, I doubt it would work out like that at all.
