    That Simpson kid at right back looked ok, but wasnt impressed with the trialist - think his name was King, Welsh lad apparently.
  2. Cant remember which day/game this weekend, but a pundit either on 5live or motd was encouraging a player to go down to get a free kick/penalty. Totally unacceptable, pundits should be actively discouraging play acting. While I'm here, my pet hate is the shirt pull when a defender has been beaten, usually happens in the middle third of the pitch, and is done solely to stop play so teamates can recover to a defensive position. First noticed it years ago in the AFCON, they do it as simply a part of the game. Its cheating, as much as diving. Rant over, back to Countdown!

    You should have moved to the back row against Saints. We had bags of space to STAND in, even though me and wife are officially old. Yesterday I had a ticket for SK2, but still managed to stand at the back of SK1. Basically, your ticket is just an entrance, once you are in go where you want - well, it works for "someone I know" anyway.

    EFL Cup - Wolves (A) - Tues 25th Sept

    For those suggesting resting Kasper - wtf? He did diddly squat yesterday, he's a goalkeeper, he should be able to play a game every day of the week. My guess is, he works harder in training than a match day. Play him, he needs the practice!
  5. Morgans first yellow was a joke. If thats a booking we may as well start playing netball. Pawson has had a mare today, thought so at the ground, motd has just confirmed it for me. Starting to think Jon Moss is a decent ref.
  6. Get a divorce mate, obviously the whole family are criminally insane
  7. Ok, we'll have to agree to disagree on this one. I fervently hope you are right and I'm wrong, and he goes in to be a City legend.
  8. I'll ask again, did you see his 5 minutes today? All opinions of course, dont want to start a war or summat, but imo, he was dreadful. Seen him twice this season, today and against Wolves. And if he's a PL CB, so am I!
  9. Evans!! Did you see his 5 minutes today? WBA have had us over on this one, he's never played football in his life. He makes Wes look like (insert name of any decent defender here). I had high hopes for Evans, but I'd rather play Benny tbh.

    Pleased for Ghezzal

    Were you there? Or basing your verdict on a shitty TV stream, or even worse a radio commentary? I was there, and the lad has quality. Shame it will be drained out of him by our 'fans' demanding Mahrez MK2.
  11. Thought the referee was excellent, a 10 from me - so my friend Cherry Red Eddie wanted to say.
  12. Maddison is NOT the new Messiah. He can run with the ball sure, but his delivery today was woeful. 48 corners kicked straight to their distinctly average 'keeper. Vardy was awful as well, how many times was he seen ambling back to an onside position with his hands in the air giving it the "dont pass to me" sign?Looks like JV is still on his fookin holidays. Maguire, horrible as well, Matt Elliot comes to mind, turning circle of an oil tanker and zero pace. On the bright side, Ghezzal looks promising - why the fook was he taken off and replaced with workhorse Albrighton? Chilwell was excellent, Mendy as well. Fans were ok, at least where I was, all standing. Pawson is a car crash of a ref though, spoke to a Bmth fan walking back to the car, he said he was crap for both teams. Nice to be home by 6 though, thats what I call an away day.

    Oh dear, we are touchy mate.

    2 hours ago, Bunyip said: I want to view the game but often as not there still are idiots who still sit behind me. ask them to stand up and you get the neanderthal response from the kind of people who want to sit regardless.  Corrected it for you mate, knew what you meant though.

    John Moss unfit to ref?

    I beg to differ. Its one of the most hateful of tackles, you get beat by a bit of skill, so deliberately grab your opponent to stop play and allow your team to regroup. Saints did it several times yesterday, really pisses me off. In my world it should be a yellow every time, perhaps even a red. Thought Moss had a decent game yesterday - never thought I'd admit to that.
