Re: Next Manager

Harvey Elliott's got a couple of weeks off, maybe they should get him to do the punditry for the Bulgaria game.

Re: Ex Players

AthleticoSpizz Sooooo

who else was there?


Trevor Morley hat trick up the other end IIRC.

Unrelated but I swear I remember Trevor Morley scoring a penalty with his head. OK, it was a rebound but it was near the penalty spot and the ball was about 3 inches off the ground.

Re: The footballer gets arrested thread

He went for the Wayne Hennessey defence.

It's a breach of FA rules and, as Liverpool have stated, a breach of their code of conduct. It's not that big a punishment, he'll miss 1 game which in all likelihood he wouldn't have started anyway.

Re: Manager v luck etc

I don't really hold much sway with the whole luck thing. Better teams generate "luck" by controlling games and applying pressure, forcing the opponent into taking risks. Luck can play a part in individual games but not in the overall standard that a team is capable of achieving. Under Stam...

Re: Next Manager

Have you seen Sparky's record at his last 2 clubs ? You have to be joking. :roll: 5 wins from 27 at Soton - yep crap. 71 from 200 at Stoke - isnt that actually pretty impressive? We're talking Stoke here - in the Prem — And it's an almost identical win % to Pulis' second spell at Stoke and he had 2...

Re: Next Manager

I honestly think that if the new manager can sort out the defence, we have enough quality elsewhere for the rest will follow.

I think we'd be quite an attractive proposition, we've got a more than decent squad

Re: Next Manager

Mark Hughes' overall managerial record is steady if unspectacular but you have told take into account that he's generally managed smaller Premiership teams.

Tbf, I'd take steady and unspectacular at the moment.

Past caring who the next manager will be, it's like picking what socks to wear when you've 10 identical grey pairs.

Whoever it is will get my support for as long as they deserve it.

Re: GOMES OUT!

I'm disappointed that he's been sacked, but not surprised. If he's lost the dressing room then it can only go one way. That's disapointing considering that the team spirit he instilled last season was crucial in us staying up but tactically we seem to have the same issues cropping up each week, and ...

Re: We're ManchesteROFL United, we do what we want

Have either of them done that well though? Gerrard has finished 2nd in a two horse race and Lampard has landed a job way above his level of experience in the back of 1 season where he achieved the absolute bare minimum with a team bulked out with loaners. OK, I'm playing Devil's advocate slightly bu...

Re: We're ManchesteROFL United, we do what we want

Mark Robins has done all right for himself.

Surely though, it's a question of great players not necessarily making great managers.

Yep. 1:30 on this clip. Clearly already on holiday and barely shaken out of his daydream by Brian McClair trying to break both his ankles in the aftermath.

Re: Ex Players

It's not a condition where symptoms are consistantly evident either. Also, if you look at some of the symptoms; joint pain, fever, fatigue it can so often be misdiagnosed at first. As for the medicals, I'm not sure an endoscopy is a standard procedure during one. I see them as a bit like an MOT in a...

Re: Ex Players

Chris Martin was suffering from ulcerative colitis whilst he was on loan to us.

In fairness to him, that would go a long way towards explaining his poor form.

Re: LOLiverpooLOL - Next Season

I think also in Sunderland's case the player played in League games where a points deduction was a possible punishment. I really can't see Liverpool getting more than a small fine if found guilty. Assuming the paperwork was submitted correctly, I can't understand how a returning loanee can still not...
