Re: World Cup Punditry

Silver Fox Why would being top of a list of BBC earners preclude you from suggesting the list should be more diverse?


Well lets wait and see what Mr Lineker says.

Re: World Cup Punditry

Gary Lineker is the host of the BBC World Cup team and Alan Shearer is one of the senior pundits. Given than this thread is about World Cup punditry I would suggest it's relevant.

Re: World Cup Punditry

I wonder if Mr Lineker will moan about the lack of diversity in this list? Or will he keep shtum.

Re: England’s World Cup Finals 2018

Silver Fox I get where that tweet is coming from, I'm just surprised TheSpread hasn't posted it on here already. However, the suggestion that Henderson is some sort of shit player is just more football ignorance frankly.


Not sure why you have mentioned me here?!

Re: The idiots of Twitter thread

I suspect some of you may follow Courtney Friday from The Chronicle on Twitter?

I was bemused by the fact he called Yann a 'legend'. (After one good season).

He was good that season, but legend. You're 'aving a laff.

Re: World Cup 2018

Jeez Belgium were shite.....utterly clueless. Was that really a "golden generation" De Bryne looked like a championship player....and what was with Felani playing out wide? All their top guns, with the exception of Hazard who was MOM didn't show up last night. That was Belgium's main prob...

Re: Season 2018/2019

What would we be happy with this season? 12th spot? After we win the World Cup I don’t know how I could deal with the most likely mundane midtable mediocroty of a crap football team so I’d probably find it hard to get actively pleased about anything less than a playoff fight. I should have added th...

Re: England’s World Cup Finals 2018

I think Andy Carroll in the squad would have a been a good idea. Even more so after seeing Vardy being pretty poor thus far. Not against Carroll per se, but they are entirely different players. Vardy is in the squad as an option against teams playing a high line, and against tired legs. Carroll wou...

Aside from the spazmo's damaging cars, wrecking IKEA and various other things, this was totally brilliant. This is how it should be done.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Croatia (n) sponsored by two big badges

I think set pieces will be the key again here. Croatia look like quite a small team - even Russia did them on a set piece. The lovetrain will be all over them. Also, I keep thinking back to when Kane absolutely murdered Lovren last season - so badly that he was taken off before half-time. Let's see...
