    Relevant, because seeing Shaqiri play today reminded me of when you used to get Subbuteo players with broken legs and glue them back onto the base, and they looked like stumpy midgets with no legs.
  2. Short corners

    The most annoying thing about the botched short corner that got Albrighton booked, was that it was the same short corner routine that ballsed up twice against Everton, once leading to an offside (especially braindead), and the second time resulted in Everton breaking and scoring after Chillwell's howler. Yet here we were today, trying exactly the same move and fecking it up again. Baffling.
  3. EFL, LCFC and FFP

    Could probably just refer to them as citizens of "the long distant past" as short hand to save typing the place names
  4. EFL, LCFC and FFP

    The rules were a load of shit anyway. No investing in your business, got to not make a loss. Right, so we just needed to reduce our wage bill - oh wait, we can't, because once you have the players, they've got guaranteed contracts for X amount of years, and you can't just make them redundant, you need to sell them to other clubs, which you might not be able to do because they can't afford it. We were never ever going to avoid falling foul of FFP, the expenditure had already happened in earlier years and we were stuck with it once the rules were introduced after the fact. The rules were written deliberately so that we would fail them. The reason it took this long was because the Football League clearly ballsed up their attempt to write the rules and left them too vague, so we've managed to get them to back down a bit on the amount. I notice no-one in the media bangs on about Bournemouth failing FFP, or Forest, or the many other Championship clubs that have failed them since. Its a set of crap rules which prevents a level playing field as it gives a massive advantage to ex Prem clubs with parachute payments whilst preventing smaller clubs growing by preventing investment.

    I hope there are loads of Wigan fans pilling onto Man City fans forum to tell them about Wigan's finances and demanding that their football and manager is treated with maximum respect, and getting all hysterical if anyone says anything bad about Wigan.

    Hope Pep sends a nice thank you note to the FA for that red card, after all, he did want bad tackles punished more severely. Or will this somehow not be what he meant, the giant ballbag hypocrite.
  9. The "do they mean us?" thread

    Sheffield United, big club? They're not even the biggest club in Sheffield for gods sake, let alone anywhere else, and one league win while Queen Victoria was alive doesn't change that.

    What the piss was that by Higuain? Max power, straight down the middle, awful penalty.
  12. Champions League 2017/18

    Kane was already falling over before the defender even touched him. Should have been booked for the dive, then booked again for the dissent imo. Also: WE HATE ROMA, WE HATE MILAN, BUT WHO THE **** IS TOTTENHAM?

  14. What is the point of Matty James?

    We were leading 3-2 when he was subbed off in the 82nd minute. He had nothing to do with the collapse that lost us that game. https://www.premierleague.com/match/22342
