URZZZZ Hopefully the era of dull tika taka is dying. Arsenal are struggling, City are struggling, and hopefully it's now gearing towards faster, higher tempo play, hence Liverpool and Leicester doing so well

Finally a decent post from you.

Where was any aggression in that?! And yes, we do - huge fraud.

Traore is one of my favourite current players, he’s just so different to the standard player nowadays, really refreshing to watch

Absolute tank. Wouldnt look out of place as a rugby winger. He has also improved so much as he was pretty bad at wolves and Boro

Think that’s a bit unfair, he did quite well at Boro under Pulis

Infact I think Traore said Pulis completely transformed his career

Did struggle at first at Wolves but it was a completely different style of play, wasn’t surprising

Looking forward to a Super Sunday starting with Rangers trying to keep tabs on Celtic.
Rangers were far superior in the recent League Cup final but that was on neutral territory.
What price neither Scott Brown nor Morelos getting sent off.?

Come on the 'Gers.

Cracking game which Rangers have edged but that could be the killer goal for the season.
With a name like Clancy and a first name of Kevin is the ref a Fenian? :wink:

I wonder if Edouard and Morelos will be playing in the Premier League next season but Morelos might be too big a risk making Luis Suarez seem like a saint.

Good to hear biased pundits for a change rather than the fence-sitters we get down south.

1999 - Accrington Vs Burton in the Northern Premier league with John Coleman and Nigel Clough managing the clubs respectively.

Not that it made any difference but LOL at Newcastle making all 3 subs at HT only for a defender's hamstring to go at the start of the half. Oof :lol:

Undeserved despite being 1-0 up for the majority of the game and playing well?

They played OK Villa but they rode their luck and anyone could see 21 shots to 3 shouldn’t result in a draw whatsoever
