  1. Yeah, I agree. If I was a fan of one of these clubs, I think I'd most want to draw Spurs. Regardless of the route the take, I can't see them going all the way. I have a funny feeling it could be United's year given the feelgood factor they have at the moment, as well as the momentum they have behind them (aside from their loss last weekend!)
  2. Lucky scousers? Having got through a group of PSG and Napoli, to then go on and beat Bayern Munich in the last 16?
  3. I don't think I've seen a stronger u21 side than this for quite a while. When you consider that youngsters such as Jadon Sancho, Alexander-Arnold, Rice and Rashford are all 21 or younger, we really do have some fantastic players for the future.
  4. I don't think anyone really knows this aside from the EFL themselves who appear to be making it up as they go along. What is quite interesting, is that in the Premier League, they hold our hand pretty tightly and require pretty regular reporting. If there are any areas of concern, they will know they are coming and flag them before our final FFP reporting and strongly advise us on how we should act in an upcoming transfer window etc. This method is quite good and will give a clear indication of a club's attitude with regard to compliance as it's quite hard/brave to ignore their advice. I'd be intrigued to see how this differs in the EFL where, in reality, the FFP rules are far more likely to be broken. The short-term cost control (STCC) rules in the Premier League have never been breached, whereas it's not uncommon for promoted sides in the Championship to go over the limit. As we know, when this is flagged it is often far too late and the team's are now promoted to the Premier League. In my opinion, the next club to break them in the Championship, and not get promoted, will be made an example of. Villa look like they could be heading that way but it sounds like they may wriggle their way out with the HS2 money.
  5. Aside from the own goal, which was unlucky, he was our best player tonight. This was also picked up by Sky at half-time who stated that he was the best player on the pitch. I'm not even the biggest fan of Lloyd Kelly but recognise how well he did tonight.
  6. On par? I remember Diony's debut, and whilst he didn't grab any headlines or feel me with any excitement, he struggled to make a mark on the game. I don't think I've seen a keeper less comfortable with the ball at his feet. You don't really realise how difficult goalkeeping in the modern game is until you see a performance like that. If this is the best of the free agents at this time, there must be some absolute dross on that list.
  7. You've nailed it @Mr Popodopolous. I was actually going to put together a short piece together in the FFP thread on the ins and outs of it. As mentioned in the other thread, I'm an accountant at a football club and I'm currently working on their FFP submission which is due to the Premier League at the end of this month. Whilst it's a different league, I have an understanding of the process from a club's perspective.
  8. I've made mistakes mate - maybe lashed out too soon or said some pretty harsh words to undeserving people. I've never hopped a fence, ran 20 metres and thrown a punch at the back of a man's head in a stadium of 25,000 people, whilst being filmed by a dozen cameras and being broadcast on Sky Sports. They've made an example of him but I feel that this will not have a massive impact; as those inclined to do such a thing do not have the IQ to register the implications of committing such a crime.
  9. I'd actually be pretty interested to hear you on it Dave. You always come across as a sensible poster, pretty rational and you enjoy a bit of analysis.
  10. Just out of interest, if nobody is allowed to comment on poster’s friends, does that mean we’re not allowed to criticise City players? I’m sure that every player has a tenuous link with someone on here?
  11. Anyone know of any streams floating around for this evening?
  12. I don't think you're a City fan. Plenty of 'true' City fans on here would walk from Tallinn singing 'Drink up Thee Cider' all journey just to see the reds lose 6-0 away to Grimsby.
  13. ******* hell. You want your team to be fighting near the top of the table every season but a mid-table battle is a lot better for your health. Checked my heart rate just before half time and it was a 120bpm. If you don't hear from me in the next hour or so, call St John's Ambulance.
  14. Below is an interesting video released this week which analyses how Norwich set up under Daniel Farke, whilst also giving an overview of his managerial career:
  15. With all due respect @Robbored, you've spelt 50% of the words in the title wrong. If every post on here was made in the same manner, it would be ridiculous. You have the intelligence to spell the title correctly and you knew his name is not McCarthy so why try and be pretentious. Not everyone is lucky enough to have a grasp of the English language and others may struggle with spelling so use the tools given to you. Oh, and by the way, the carpool karaoke came out in August.
