  1. He is still diving around in Turin trying to save a penalty.
  2. Totally f@cked of with Cricket this summer, the test format is not supported and the County Championship is totally devalued for a version of rounders.
  3. I used to dread playing this lot way back when, always under performed and didn't get the result we wanted. Lets hope we get three points here so the doom and gloom merchants have to stay quiet for a week. A chance to get those two defeats behind us, fingers crossed.
  4. I take my hat off to you pal, if I was back home I like to think I would do the same. I hate that motherf@cker with a passion that surprises me as I felt that I was getting further away from the club. I suppose when someone hurts someone or something you love it just comes back to the surface. Boils my p!ss when I see people on here giving that clown the benefit of the doubt.
  5. Love to see them fall by the wayside, not more than a club now eh? I really dislike how the bigger clubs think they matter more than other clubs, Libpool are the worst at this. We all love our clubs, no more and no less because of how they are doing on the pitch.
  6. Funny watching Texas getting blasted by Arkansas last weekend. Some Power 5 teams are poor and I it would be good to see some programs get swapped out but that's never going to happen unfortunately.
  7. I have to say that is pretty much how I see it. If Hamilton gets in front on points then knocking both cars out can no longer be a strategy for Max. I find Max hard to dislike, Horner on the other hand is a different animal.
  8. Its starting to get a little concerning here, if they continue to collide and put themselves and others in possible danger then the FIA has to take action before someone is seriously injured or worse.
  9. Wow, you need to check your sources? Was Bielsa working in Austria between the war when some of the teams from that country kept the ball and dragged opponents around for fun, I also don't remember seeing Bielsa on the touchline when Hungary passed us to death in 6-3 and 7-1 wins. You also need to re-assess your language around the idea of pressing. Pressing is linked to cues and triggers, not something that is a continuous state, that would would be defending higher up the field with a higher starting position for your back line. You certainly have some balls suggesting that the current England manager and the manager of a premier league team are under a misconception about this topic. You cant chip a ball over a high press, or any press for that matter because if the press is initiated correctly on cue you simply don't have the time to get in position to chip the ball away as you will be under severe pressure: the City keeper is chipping the ball over a high line, there is a significant difference.
  10. Has Horner stopped crying yet? I wonder how much the F1 lawyers have already billed getting ready for appeals on the half point race?
  11. Totally agree pal, the ECB are playing their part by prioritizing every other form of the game over the test team. Lets get the Yorkies back with the County Championship team and win that now.
  12. Absolutely no idea how this one goes, I still don't really have a handle on this division yet. Its a long trip, we will have a lot of fans there and we usually dissapoint when the expectations up. In the words of Alex Turner I'll settle for a draw.
  13. I think Guardiola has been, and remains a revolutionary coach, however I do think that in the really big games he just tries to be too clever. How on earth he did he think he could get away with his selection in the CL final against Chelsea is beyond me. Of course these coaches know much more about what is going on in and around the game but if you are going to make a statement like that you need a good plan B that you can move in the game without using subs. To not have won the CL with the resources he had at Bayern and the resources he has at City is a big mark against him for me. Fergie left a few CL' s on the table, 97, should have beat Madrid in the early 2000's and I still think they could have won the first final against Barcelona if they had gone in front early, should have also beat Bayern in the game at OT when the Brazilian full back got sent off.
  14. If you want someone to really f@ck it up in the big games then Pep is your man, the bottler of the big game!
  15. just dropped two points in Poland, historically a difficult place in World Cup qualifiers and its time to change the manager, wow. I have yet to see anyone come up with a reasonable alternative.
