Re: LOLiverpooLOL - Next Season

Tore Everton apart at times last night - then coasted for long periods. Everton defenders looked like the proverbial rabbits in the headlights for the first 20 minutes. Without a Gylfi or a James - they're lacking a killer ball / bit of creativity. Not sure Townsend or Rondon are top drawer forwards...

Re: BFTG Swanse(a)

Yep convenience is definitely a major factor and one of the reasons he was still available - helps that Scott Dann is one of his best mates by all account too. We definitely are in pole position (if we can afford it) for him to stay for either 6 to 18 months given he can commute easily, not disrupt...

Re: Do you sometimes think you`ve had enough.

Yep - happened to me after the PO final - even the preceding season was an unbearable slog at times. The quality of football (and match day value/experience) has deteriorated over that sort of period IMHO - and therefore so did any 'connection' i ever felt to the club. Coincided with moving further ...

Re: The Manager Sack Race/Merry-go-Round

Ole Goner Solksjear What a shame, I wish they had kept him for the whole of the season as they scramble for a place in the EUFA Cup. Thoughts are with the missing Brobot. What is the EUFA Cup? Wasn't there a footie game from the mid-90's that had to rename all competitions for licensing reasons - a...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Nottingham Forest (h)

NathStPaul Why would anyone think Andy Carroll is fit enough to start this game? :roll:


I think it's more hope than belief. As in an unfit Andy Carroll for 45mins could have more impact on the game than a fully match fit Puscas over 90mins.

Re: The footballer gets arrested thread

From what I recall, the release of Mendy's name in the media only came after a second set of sexual assault allegations - Mendy had already been questioned and bailed with regards to the first. The subsequent second set of allegations (and charges) relate to gatherings at his house that, irrespecti...

Re: The footballer gets arrested thread

Benjamin Mendy charged with two additional counts of rape, now six in total. Just read that him and his co-accused have been remanded in custody since early August - and have had multiple bail applications turned down. Guess they see him as a flight risk? That's not usually the process in these kin...

Re: SpuROFLs

Selling Kane for mega money last month was Levy's get out of jail free card for this (and possibly next) season.

Surely one look at the squad would have shown that they are still in decline and need to rebuild - thats what Nuno could have done - with a free hit of a season and 100M in transfers.

Re: England - the future....

Is Kane undroppable? He's offered very little so far.

Was hoping for epic, torrential rain tonight. 90 minutes of tense (arguably boring) stalemate followed by a last minute, scuffed winner from some absolute carthorse (Maguire or Mings).
