  1. Help a Fellow Football Fan

    I need to get back to work now, but thank you all for your thoughts and offers so far. I'll speak to the others involved in helping and see what's needed most right now etc. I'm sure most things will be accepted and I'll update and speak to you all about it when I know more. Until then, thank you all once more, bless the lot of you!

    Cheers Davie, when I know, I'll let you know, but won't keep you waiting too long if possible. We he needs it and we come to get it, that'd be brilliant. Much appreciated mate.

    It could be of use. I won't know properly until this week gets out of the way of imagine, but if it's needed, collection won't be a problem as I've got a couple of mates with vans. Appreciate it Davie. Though if you've already got a plan for scrapping it, don't let me stand in your way, there'll be other opportunities and ways we can hell him. Yea I thought that too. One of the guys set it up yesterday in a bit of a quick tizz when it all really started to come to light, but if/when we surpass it, then so be it. Thanks for kind words, I'm positive he'll appreciate the help as much as I do!

    He's spent the last few days trying to go through all the things like that, but until the fire inspection report is completed, we don't know precisely what the cause was etc so I imagine the insurance will wait until that's completed. He's mainly just keeping his head down with family at the moment and trying to sort things out, so most of us are giving him space for now really, but thought I'd at least try here to see if anyone can help. If people can't etc, it's totally understandable, but worth a try. Appreciate that strokes, top man!
  5. Help a Fellow Football Fan

    Alright everyone, I've not been around here for a while due to changing jobs (again) and not really having time, but I'm making a point of coming back on today to ask for the wider football communities help. A very good friend of mine and a massive football man who has played for, still plays, and has run clubs in the south of the county (mainly Lutterworth Athletic and Broughton Astley), has suffered a horrific set back in life after his entire house effecrively burnt down on Sunday night in lutterworth and he has lost litterally everything. On the off chance anyone can help us reach our target to help get him back on his feet, it would be hugely appreciated. There's a just giving link below if anyone can spare anything. Or if there are material goods you no longer need which might be helpful, drop me a message. Or any local businesses who you think may be able to donate any raffle prizes etc. We are trying to organize a huge football tournament which will be more than likely be at the Lutterworth Athletic football ground in the coming weeks. I'll confirm on here when it's sorted if anyone wants to enter a team or just come down for drinks and buy a raffle ticket. Sorry for scrounging, but it's worth a try and I know how the football community can come together sometimes. Thanks in advance to anyone who can help.

  7. 2017-18 third kit release?

    About 6 years ago, I'm sure I read a study on footballers & kits etc which found that green was the worst colour to have as it doesn't stand out in your peripheral vision, therefore making it harder to follow your own players and pick out passes.
  8. Similarly to the NHS, there is plenty of money going in to it etc but it's just spent incredibly poorly within a shit system really. The police have been pushing the 101 number for years and rightly so. They shouldn't be pulled away from real problems to deal with something which isn't an emergency, then they go spouting this nonsense and having dedicated units set up for mean words.
  9. Well Sadiq Khan set up an online hate unit hub just for the police in London earlier this year at a cost of nearly £1 million per year, so thats a starting point for perspective. Seriously though, encouraging people to ring 999 if their feelings have been hurt. Get a fvcking grip!

    Eder. Went to Inter instead.

    Federico Bernadeschi on the verge of joining Juventus for just over £35 million after completing his medical. Great signing!
  12. Premier League, 2017-2018 Season Thread

    Most teams struggle with the integration of big new signings, even ourselves. Looking back at some of their good ones, they've had players like Yaya, Fernandinho, Silva, Aguero, De Bruyne all hit the ground running and that's not a bad list to have. Stones obviously hasn't but that's as he's not that great anyway. I still think they'll be considerably better this year. As things stand, I think Chelsea are in a worse position.

    Value or not, Walker, Danilo and Mendy are huge upgrades on Clichy, Sagna, Kolarov and Zabaleta (though I always liked him). Man City will be considerably stronger this year. Whether they'll win the league though, I'm unsure.

    I've not seen the offside decision, but I'm in total agreement with regards to everything you've said about the handball. It was a penalty, no argument. If I was playing and that happened to the opposition team, I'd be going mad for a pen to be given. Then if it had happened to me, I'd be expecting to have a pen given against me. Absolute madness that such a key part of the game can be taken in two such different ways. It's a pen, end of.
  15. European Football 17/18

    Having read up more about it. Before the tournament, they all had meetings saying that if the ball is deflected or played on to the players own arm, then the penalty doesn't need to be given. It was pointed out that the ball came up off the England player's own thigh on to her arm so no penalty was given. It's absolutely rubbish and I don't agree with it, it should have been a pen, but apparently those are the rules as it's classed as unintentional EDIT: Explained slightly better in this BBC article http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/40701230
