Only just found out we don't have a match tomorrow


Recommended Posts

I've struggled to find interest in a lot of football for a couple of seasons now - When you can place a bet on a defender to make two tackles in a game, and get a decent return, that suggests to me the game is no longer exciting. Same applies on strikers, decent odds for a main striker to have 2 shots on target? Not even score, just hit the target, suggests the game as a whole lacks entertainment.

 

International football is a whole different level - I'd rather they just did little qualifying tournaments, during the summers when the world cup or Euros isnt on

Don't get it and never did, champ. clubs in England stop playing league football for two weeks, cos England are playing Wales in a friendly.

..kin nuts.

All should carry on as normal even the prem, if a team is full of foreigners, and they all need to go and play in an international...tough shyte...

Exactly, then they complain of fixture pile up later in the season.

 

Just leave the game alone, get the feeling some bigwig somewhere is trying to justify their jobs with stupid ideas.  VAR being the pinnacle of their stupidity.

Same, think when things are properly back to normal I will do groundhopping rather than watching Wednesday every week

I've only just realised the season has started.

 

Not for us it aint... No bloody forwards, I ask you which club would start a new season with no forwards?

Looking forward to the England-Pasturesgreen v Belgium game though.

 

Bit of a derby game. UK v EU. Going to be a bit tasty.

Ha, looks like you are after fishing rights..

I only watch the 3 England games each World Cup (sarcasm intended)

Not particularly interested in the upcoming Qatr one because it really just makes NO sense to put the tournament there unless you are Blatters bank manager.

I already hated international breaks.  It's unconscionable to still have them with the current state of world affairs.

 

Capitalist money grab for the biggest scum, parading behind the ugly spectre of cheap nationalism (playing for country).  Barf.

Was just sat at my desk and wondered who we were playing tomorrow, googled it and - I think its an indication of just how much the enforced absence from football is affecting interest levels that I had no idea it was the international break, and I had no idea England played last night.

 

I'm off to Cheshire on Sunday to watch Swallownest in the FA VAse though. Its great to be travelling to away grounds again.

 

Is it just me - or is anyone else no longer fully up to date with fixtures? (Apparently its Birmingham next week. (AWAY)

I remember you goin through a swallow nest phase a few years ago..it dint last long tho

Let me finish that off for you: "Here endeth the sermon. May the love of our Lord jesus Christ, the peace of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you and remain with you now and always." 😄

I wonder if the love will return when crowds do. Or will people have lost the habit?

i also wonder if sky subscriptions have gone up or down during the closure.

For me an International break is the same as the been no football on at all. 

 

Il have a look at the England result and laugh at the Scotland one. that's how far my interest goes tbh
