  1. Man City Post Match Thread 0-2

    They were too good for us, but one man stood out in their team De Bruyne was immense. He even got a warm round of applause from the home fans when substituted. Ok, the referee did seem to bottle it on Kompany and maguire should have scored, it seemed harder to miss; but aside from that, it's been years since an away side has made us look so ineffective. Man City have the perfect balance at the moment, the best defensive and midfield players in the league giving their forward line / wide players so much time and space.
  2. What grinds my gears...

    People who use the word "austerity" in the Politics thread, but don't know what the word means. Ok, I am an old timer, from an era where you worked for a living and didn't expect something / everything for nothing. But it really gets my goat, when well healed agitators with the latest iPhones pontificate about how they are disadvantaged.
  3. Demarai Gray

    He was fairly eloquent, hopefully now he will STFU and let his feet do the talking.
  4. Championship 2017/18

    Fair comment, although pretty brainless move. Must be the money on offer. He will probably get them to stay up just, but he's on a hiding to nothing. Turning to who's going up, would prefer Fulham or QPR, can't beat an overnight stay in the smoke. Apart from Leeds, everywhere else is rubbish. But both these teams look like middle table finishes.
  5. England v Brazil.

    Only saw last 15 as watched ROI. Looks like Maguire played well, wonder if Neymar asked him to swap shirts. Could have nicked both games in 90th minute, so Southgate will feel he s on the right track.
  6. 2018 Russia World Cup Qualifying

    Gutted for my Italian mates, but even they accept Italy lost their way over last two / three years - just got no talent coming through at the moment. People like having a go at England, but at least we do win against lesser sides unlike Italy and Holland. Could be a tough few years for the Italian team who just got too lazy and need a massive rethink.

    HTF did the ref see that handball, TBF that is an Italian penalty. With some good refs around why are idiots put in charge of such key games?
  8. 2018 Russia World Cup Qualifying

    FIFA normally shafts the smaller teams with less TV revenue etc., just hope Sweden don't suffer like both the Irish teams have in recent times. You have to fancy Italy going through now the ref has shown his ineptitude and inability to apply the rules. Compulsive watching, can Sweden hold on?

    Can't get much clearer hand to ball, gutless referee.

  11. Surprised you still care?

    You can't stop caring about the team you love. it's impossible. The only thing that gets to me is the massive amount of negativeness, which I perceive, rightly or wrongly, emanates from the the younger generation of fans. I suppose that's the way with social media, which is a fundamentally negative vehicle; it's so easy to slag the players, owners, management off, under a false name. Any delay in signing a player, announcing ticket details, upgrading the website etc., is seized upon gleefully and dissected to death. Yes, nothing changed in my love for the club, but the so called fans, that's a different matter. We do have more than our fair share of doomsayers who seem happy when we lose and can then come out with their "I told you so's.." Anyway, I am not surprised I still care, after 54 seasons of supporting the team, over a 1000 games, it's in your blood. If you lose interest or stop caring, then it was never really in your blood in the first place.
  12. Northern Ireland v Switzerland

    Swiss played more attacking fluid football, but didn't really have any cutting edge. You could say the best chance fell to the Irish with the free header. Clearly, the referee was a disgrace, favouring the away side big time. That leg breaking tackle he let go was frankly unbelievable. He seemed to target Lafferty, who is obviously not up to this standard, but he seemed to get wound up by the decisions going against him and stopped contributing anything. The ref did the defenders job. No doubt FIFA will give the Ref high marks and he will get another crucial game soon - Blatter might have gone, but nothing has really changed, the luck of the Irish does seem to desert them when they reach play-offs.
