  1. I get what you mean. Maybe it’s because he’s doing it in the German league - or that people can’t relate to his Polish character…. Apparently he is quite ‘fun’ online, doing videos, not taking himself seriously. I’m thinking mainly that it’s just his absolute robotic way he bags goals like he’s putting sweets in a jar or something.
  2. I get that feeling too. I also think their idiot ‘fans’ will care that they miss a game or two - in the hooligan world it feels like they all live for the ‘big day out’ that they can tug themselves off to and remember fondly.
  3. Hungary have been ordered to play two matches behind closed doors by Fifa following the racism English players experienced at the World Cup qualifier in Budapest on 2 September. However, the second ground closure is suspended for two years. The Hungarian Football Federation has also been fined £158,400 (200,000 Swiss Francs). "Fifa takes a clear zero tolerance stance against such abhorrent behaviour in football," read Fifa's statement. The governing body added that it remained "firm and resolute in rejecting any form of racism and violence as well as any other form of discrimination or abuse". https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/58642558
  4. Robert Lewandowski has received the 2020-21 European Golden Shoe, having scored 41 Bundesliga goals for Bayern Munich. The award is given to the top goalscorer in all domestic leagues across Europe. Lewandowski, 33, is only the second Germany-based player to win it, after Bayern legend Gerd Muller in 1971-72. The Polish striker's tally last season was the highest since Cristiano Ronaldo claimed the award in 2015 with Real Madrid after netting 48 goals. Lewandowski comfortably outscored Lionel Messi (30) and Ronaldo (29) in his 29 Bundesliga appearances.
  5. Ronaldo at the moment looks to be relying more on clever short movements to get a toe/tap in etc… although he can still dart into the box too… he just can’t sprint down the wings etc much anymore Hopefully he isn’t too isolated against the best defences. I think having pace and movement round him is a good idea - like Mason Greenwood wider to put it on a plate for him
  6. In that case… I don’t like this guy. Close thread.
  7. You’ve got to respect these guys. Their fitness routines, diet etc etc must be incredible.
  8. Windass could be higher. Good squad though !
  9. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/58622433
  10. Is it the ref that sent of Luongo once ? Possibly vs Stoke Which was then rescinded ?
  11. Wolves have recorded a Premier League first by launching their own music label. The club have partnered with Warner Music UK to start Wolves Records, whose signings will also receive airplay at their Molineux Stadium and across the club's digital productions. Russell Jones, general manager of marketing and commercial growth, said it would "provide talent with life-changing opportunities". Football has long been associated with music, and anthems such as 'Three Lions' and 'You'll Never Walk Alone' are iconic among fans. Wolves' new venture aims to initially support artists in the Midlands area, but hopes to grow globally. They have already teamed up with Wolverhampton-born fan and singer/songwriter S-X, who has previously worked with Lil Wayne, Childish Gambino and Skepta. Peter Rudge, who managed The Who and the Rolling Stones, is another supporter on board as a strategic consultant. "I am deeply passionate about giving talented young people from this area the best opportunities and the rich musical talent that the West Midlands has to offer," said S-X. "I am genuinely looking forward to seeing how Wolves Records can impact the music industry and support new artists." Label boss Ricky Hill added: "This is not just about supporting local artists, but a genuine and authentic move by a football club with a vast audience to penetrate the music industry and develop new and emerging talent across the world." While Wolves are the first UK football club to venture into the music business, French Ligue 1 club Marseille partnered with BMG to launch OM Records - a label for pop, hip-hop and rap.
  12. Jarred Gillett will become the first overseas official to referee a Premier League game when he takes charge of Watford v Newcastle on Saturday. The 34-year-old Australian was promoted to Select Group 1 by the Professional Game Match Officials Limited (PGMOL) before the start of the season. Gillett has been on Premier League VAR duty this season and has refereed two Championship games this term. He began officiating in England in 2019 after leaving Australia's A-League. Although former Premier League referee Dermot Gallagher was born in Ireland, he was considered an English FA representative - and was even able to officiate in a Republic of Ireland game against Russia in 2002.
  13. Ronaldo gets some stick that Kane wouldn’t.
  14. Great support. Team needs to step up.
  15. Oh right ..! Phew. However, that should help make things more amicable with his ex wife…
  16. If you want League One chips you need to pay Premier League prices.
  17. When you think about West Ham, and what a few signings along with Moyes has done - why can’t that happen to Newcastle ? (Moyes must be better than Bruce tbf)
  18. Spurs actually looking decent. Tanguy Ndombele can really play when he’s not fed up.
