Yeah, we’ve never been the same again since Jamie Vardy was lured away...

He had a bad season after, but what about those who left.

 

If you think Barnes would pick us over Manchester United, Manchester City or Liverpool I think you in the land of fairy tales.

i have been backing this at about 500/1-1000/1 every week for over a year now. so i’ll let you know the day that i forget. cos that’s when he nails it. 

Where are you getting those odds if you don't mind me asking, I've only got 250/1 for tonight. Totally agree with you though this lad is awesome, and getting better, the way he rides tackles reminds me of Gascoigne of you're old enough to remember.

just check oddschecker. 500s out there, even 1000/1 at william hill. has shortened a bit over the last few weeks obviously now he has remembered he is allowed to score.

Interesting article about both Chilwell and Barnes.

Nothing particularly new there, not normally one to shit on women's football (mostly because it's incredibly tedious when people do it) but the pressure and speculation of a transfer in women's football is absolutely nothing like what'd it be for say, Chilwell being linked with Chelsea. The difference in fee, pressure, column inches, expectation, profile etc are all vastly higher. 

 

Barnes and Chilwell haven't really linked up particularly well either, it's been a bit better recently but hardly a flourishing partnership.

Havent you been following the BBC's coverage of Womens football?  surely you've had enough of it forced down your throat by now to understand that its EASILY as good as mens football.

I've watched plenty of women's football on the Beeb, and it is utter 5h1te. I'll continue watching, cos any football is better than no football, but it really is Sunday League at best. As for them expecting to be paid the same as men, you have to be joking. It's entertaining, same as Emmerdale is entertaining, but serious, passion inducing football? Never, and never will be.

All men don’t get paid on any kind of scale either though, it’s based on many variables. That for a start makes it a non-argument.

This is precisely the tedium @Stadt is talking about.  You live in one of the most free societies in the world, with almost unlimited personal choice, yet the way some moan that the occasional appearance and promotion of womens football is having it "shoved down their throats" is a joke.  It's about a 0.1 on the zero to ten scale of first world problems.  Watch or stream the footy you do like, or read a book, or get something else done.  And spare the rest of us your rants.

Disagree.

It is immensely frustrating how the beeb do try and force women’s football down the throats of people. Perfect example is having women’s football stories at the top of the bbc website with misleading headlines. Ie United in for Liverpool striker. 
Total rubbish. The quality of women’s football is less than non league standard and the interest in it is about on a par with non league football. 
Boils my piss.

   Most any website will have stories that don't interest you, and it takes seconds to scroll past them.

 

   But if that's a big, big problem in the context of your life, I salute you.  You must have a hell of a good life. 

 

   Though one's piss boiling at room temperature ... I could see where that could be quite painful.

In what way do you feel it's being forced down your throat? You're under no obligation to like it, watch it, read about it or ever even think about it. Something appearing in the news that you're not interested in doesn't really constitute it being forced down your throat, does it?

Most visit sports websites to read about mens football. Sometimes I mistake the womens football for the mens. It can be annoying. I really don't care about womens football honestly. I'd rather they mark the articles as womens so I don't get mistaken. But I cba to shake my fists at someone trying to raise the profile of womens football in england.

As far as I can tell they do exactly that on BBC Sport, it's all marked with the fairly unambiguous "Women's Football" tag. Like you say, if the price to pay for getting people who've traditionally been/felt excluded more involved in sport is that people occasionally click on the wrong piece of vacuous transfer gossip by accident, I think it's one worth paying.

I tend to read the headline before seeing the tag. Would be nicer if I could skip the headline altogether. Still, I'll call off the army of oppressed football fans terrorised by the bbc's attempt to redefine society and rob the working man of his dignity.

In the fact that I go to the main page of the bbc to read about real football. So let’s say the bbc push men’s homeless football like they do women’s. How long until people are pissed off when they go to the main site of the bbc and the headline is City striker linked with move away, only to find its homeless Barry from Basingstoke thinking of going to Corby In the men’s homeless premier league. Not interested in homeless football nor am I interested in women’s football. For some reason the bbc try to make out everyone is and push it as real football.

Am fairly sure c4 have made a homeless men’s football documentary. Social problems are great viewer pullers. I’d read the shit out of those articles. And watch the matches. Might be more effective than donating to food banks. The homeless Jamie Vardy. Imagine it! The league would be infinitely more authentic than the money driven premier league. I ****ing love your idea. Do I want to read about 100m Pogba or Leicester homeless left back’s crunching tackle against Stoke’s winger who rumour has it actually owns a home? ****ing sign me up now!

If he can sort his finishing out a bit he's capable of getting 15 goals a season

He's becoming a hot commodity in the fantasy football community for this very reason.
