  4. Agree All the fun and spontaneity has been taken away It's no longer a sport for the average person
  5. Good win, that. Was expecting the usually injury time collapse. Maybe some grudging optimism starting to creep back
  6. He seems to be mentally struggling after what went off in Greece. It would be wise to take him out of the limelight for a bit
  7. A career path you've definitely turned your back on
  8. Pope didn't cover himself in glory today either

  11. Off the field stuff may have had an affect. Wasn't he robbed?
  12. I think that's a slippery slope in football. Allowing 1 now will soon morph into 2 or 3 or 4 as managers/club owners/sponsors and whoever else continue to tinker with the game and its rules. The game today is not even close to what it used to be 20 years ago. Not much changed in over a 100 years and yet we've seen more change since the Millennium than in the previous century.

Or was it players chas
