Re: World Cup 2018

Some intriguing results in from Asia: Guam 2-1 India. This is quite possibly the biggest population differential in the history of World Football, in terms of the smaller nation (I mean, Guam isn't even a nation) beating the larger one. 120,000 vs 1.3 billion or so :D Japan 0-0 Singapore. Shocking r...

Re: Rochdale trophy room

Love this. Surely one of the most obscure and strange places one can visit in world football is the Rochdale Trophy room. Imagine if they pulled off a miracle and won the FA Cup of something. It'd be like walking past the few shelves in Burnham Public Library only to find a Guttenburg Bible encased ...

Also Justin Fashanu for Norwich vs Liverpool in 1980

brilliant understated commentary, 'one of the best goals at Carrow Road this season' :lol:

How about like, ever?

Ark Royal Personal favourite is Mickey Walsh, Blackpool v Sunderland 1975 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XnKBwYHAbE4



Love that. And of course Ronnie Radford for Hereford in the Cup against Newcastle

I don't even need to link to it. You've all seen it a thousand times

Re: World Cup 2018

Guess the European section of the 2018 qualifiers will have to be delayed until the criminal investigation over its award is complete as if it is revoked then Russia will need to qualify. Yes, indeed. I don't buy into the official line about 'well, the draw's about to be made so we can't change 201...

Re: World Cup 2018

Re: FIFA

this is the news story that has bought the biggest smile to face this year, by far :lol:

Grauniad:

Prince Ali bin al-Hussein, his rival for the presidency, has arguably misjudged the public mood by calling this “a sad day for football”.

Re: World Cup 2018

What was that book posted on page 1? Cannot find what everybody it talking about, and sounds like a good 'un.

Re: World Cup 2018

Montserrat didn't make it :cry: They battled bravely against Curacao and held them to a 2-2 draw but bowed out 4-3 on aggregate. It was a bad night for the UK overseas territories, with the Cayman Islands crashing out on away goals to Belize, and Anguilla unsurprising unable to overturn their 5-0 fi...

Re: World Cup 2018

I'm detecting a distinct lack of interest in the very early qualification stages of the 2018 FIFA tourney :P Nonetheless I plug away with the news that Montserrat face Curacao today in the capital Plymouth in an attempt to overturn a 2-1 deficit in this all-Caribbean first leg CONCACAF tie. Kick off...

Re: England - the future....

Rooney giving it the 'England displays are frightening' is getting far too carried away I think it's unlikely many of the squads in the top European national sides can name more than 2 or 3 England players. Here's Rooney's stats: http://www.englandstats.com/players.php?pid=1126 Looking at the list,...

Re: World Cup 2018

CONCACAF is off the mark now too. Some early results in as baseball-loving Nicaragua thumped Anguilla 5-0 and everyone's favorite tax haven the Turks and Caicos Island falling 6-2 St. Kitts and Nevis.

last-gasp equalizer for the Irish in Germany. Hun-believable. When was the last time all of the home nations were doing so well in qualifying? Wales, England and Northern Ireland all top their groups, and Scotland, its only the defeat to Germany keeping them out of the top two. The Irish have been g...
