  1. What happened to the obstruction rule

    That's not actually true. Indirect free kicks are given for offside, shows of dissent, ungentlemanly conduct, and a few other things. Not all free kicks are direct.
  2. Uefa nations league

    B-B-B-B-bbbBUT Lampard scored!
  3. England

    Dier and Winks aren't really competing for the same role. They both started Spurs' last match. Winks is more of an energetic box-to-box type, Dier is definitely a more defensive option. In a midfield two, with one holding and the other being asked to get up and down the pitch, Winks is the latter. It's more like Dier/Wanyama and Winks/Dembele/Sissoko competing. Obviously they're a bit interchangeable if needed as and when but on the whole they're not competing.
  4. Gareth Southgate

    Qualifying from that group should have been an ABSOLUTE MINIMUM. Do any of you get a bonus at your work for achieving the absolute minimum? Ridiculous to offer that, especially as he was basically the bottom of the barrel option for the job anyway. If Ancellotti would accept the job right now, I would do what is required to get him in before the WC personally.
  5. Josh Brownhill

  6. Fam

    Funny how people's opinions can differ so wildly. Someone on a different thread described him as 'brilliant' last night. I'm with Super, though I wouldn't use the word 'poor' - The whole team just did what was needed last night and not really any more.
  7. Oh what a feeling

    20 shots? I'm amazed at that statistic. Their keeper (who actually was excellent for them) did make a few saves but the vast majority of those shots must have been very tame or way off target as I barely remember 5 shots. It wasn't a dire performance, it was 'efficient'. We saw off an awful team and were totally comfortable doing so.
  8. EFL

    Is there much point in 'closing' the transfer window but allowing loans? Clubs would just do loan deals with the obligation to buy, it's exactly the same as signing a player. There will always be a way around it unless the rules are black and white. Shut the window before the season starts and that's the end of it.
  9. Eni Aluko / Mark Sampson (Merged)

    Can you not think of anything that a male manager could do whilst in charge of female players that would not be a crime but would be completely inappropriate? It doesn't have to be anything to do with the Aluko allegations. Everything is wild speculation obviously until anything actually comes to light, but by constantly defending the man and making claims like it's a witch hunt you're running the risk of seeming very silly when the true extent of the situation is revealed. Why not wait and see.
  10. In the Courts

    Hence the reason fines for these sorts of offence will soon be proportional to income. Imagine earning £300K a week - Looking for somewhere to Park? 'There's a nice Bus Stop over there... £30 fine? GREAT value, I'll take that spot'. If that fine was proportional to your income, you'd think again.
  11. Nathan Baker - Discipline

    When you consider that a lot of us were worried in the stands, the reading fans/bench clearly thought it was a red, and numerous write ups afterwards have described us as 'lucky' not to be reduced to 10 men - I think calling my statement 'absolute nonsense' is, in your own words, absolute nonsense. With the pressure of a home crowd screaming for it, I could see many referees giving that as a red. I never offered my opinion on it, I'm just saying, on another day that's a red card, and there's plenty who agree.
  12. Nathan Baker - Discipline

    On another day, he could easily have been sent off against Reading for his yellow card challenge.
  13. I wouldn't wish three nights in Wolverhampton upon my worst enemy, so that's probably why.
  14. As remarkable as it is, and it is, there's no question about that, I think it is being slightly mis-reported. They're still very much odds against to reach the world cup. They have to beat Australia over two legs, then beat the fourth placed team from CONCACAF over two legs too. They will be fairly large underdogs in both of those. They've done fantastically well against the odds, but they most likely will not reach the world cup.
  15. Nice Touch

    @iamalagerdrinker - Do you have to have two large images in your tag? - This comes up every time you post, bit annoying, especially on mobile!
