    Aye looks like it judging by the time penalty and ex drivers commentary. Didn't really matter though did it. He finished first.

    Karma is a bitch, how many accidents has verstappen caused inthe past because of his aggressive unpredictable driving. He has improved it has to be said but what goes around comes around. Glad he is okay, it would have been better watching a full race, but judging how Hamilton's car reacted to turbulent air I'm not sure he would have taken him.
  3. So matter of fact, just like various members of my family when saying they had cancer. A message really hiding the turmoil he will be going through. Wishing him the best, hope the testicle removal nails it it and all the cancer cells are encapsulated within said testicle. Good luck Mike
  4. Ain't that the truth. I think he may bring us stability, but I am not sure he is our long term manager. I will be happy to be proven wrong and hope he is a success. His brutal honesty seems to be hitting the right chord with many at the moment. As long as we improve it's okay, if we don't that brutal honesty will be seen as bullshit and the fans will turn quickly. I've seen it all before.
  5. Yep I seen you have gone off the boil. You tend to get a load of great players come in at the same time, I just don't see that at the moment with Romania, I guess your time will come again.there was time I could reel off 6 or 7 Romanian footballers that were top quality. I'd be hard pressed to name 2 now unfortunately! Personally I like Soutgate's approach, he appears to have tactics and plans for various eventualities, of course he is only as good as his last match. But I like him as a person, and he seems to know how to galvanise a squad. Re Pearson, I can't help but think we are going to be bored to death while he is in charge, he is very pragmatic and we will be hard to beat. But I like to be entertained,as many other City fans do. He may be being treated like a messiah now, but fans won't put up wit dogged performances for long if we are languishing.i have been a City fan long enough now to know what our fan base are like. He will get backed from the rafters for 6 months before the crowd will turn if the football is crap and the position in the table is not great.
  6. Oh I didn't think.you were being rude. And I like to see other people's opinions especially when they are more neutral than I am. I just think if people think we are shit and play bad football now, they really haven't been watching us for the past 40 years. That said you will be judging england against other European sides and Romanian sides, where certainly for years the skills and technique of your countrymen were far higher than English. I think we have caught up after years in that respect. Where we fall down for the neutral is attacking flair. Don't get me wrong, I think we have it when we want to use it, we just don't use it enough, and from a neutral perspective it doesn't make for great watching. Personally for my club side I'd prefer attacking style over results if I had to choose as I want to be entertained, but at international level I want results. So I am currently happy with 50% percent of my supporting options :laugh:
  7. I think the problem is we have rose tinted specs. For me England have generally only ever played well In the plucky losing games at big tournaments, and we live off that game. Biggest example italia 90. Now it was a great tournament in terms of being there, but lest be honest we were shite, and then.played well against Germany and lost. That is England in tournaments for me. Rose tinted spectacles say we were great, reality tells us otherwise. Likewise 96, we live off the Netherlands game, but the other games were tight against with average quality football For me this tournament we have played well without being spectacular, but certainly consistently better than any other tournament in my lifetime
  8. I can see that. There were at least 5 players there who could have got it.
  9. Can't agree, first time I can remember in my 47 years where we look like we can play football rather than just hoof and run merchants of the past. I agree it probably was not great watching for the neutral, but for a England team to be able to pass and trap a ball is something of a bonus,add to that not leaking goals and creating I'd say we look good, but not great. I so wonder how you think our teams of the last 20 to 30 years look better. In my mind they have looked poor for years. But good to hear a neutals view so keep posting. For once we look like a European team I.e. can pass, can control and can go down and I've for decent game management
  10. I thought Phillips followed by sterling. Yorkshire pirlo had a cracking game
  11. Interesting, you like at the defence you think bang average, you see the attack you think cracking yet its our defence which has given us the platform to get here. Golden generation maybe, first time I have seen a England team where the whole team can control a football and do the basics correctly most definitely
  12. Dear God no. More yankeeisms in our game I can do without. Drink up thee cider all day long, along with some moaning and groaning about how shite we've been No sweet Caroline and soccer ball from me.
  13. Correct Turner 2 Gavin 1 (a few mins after Chelsea made it 2-1 Taylor missed a sitter

    270 mins with a a defence being the weak component, defence rotated in every game. Never really looked in trouble in any game. I think people complain too much.
  16. No it was g + t (x2) unless I am going completely senile
  17. This is true haha. I would doubt anyone can reading his history, fair play to anyone who did remember him. Bloody trialist
  18. Looks like a fat afroed Dominic Purcell

    Without doubt, great for a 0-0, defences for both sides look very poor. Great neutral match

    Well you can make things as safe as you can, but you can't legislate for some people who want to join the Darwin awards hall of fame. You have to assume its is someone being a dick, if not Wembley surely will lose its safety certificate! I will get my apologies in early if it was not someone being a dick.
  21. Googled him, he was on trial after being released by Liverpool in 85. Went to Torquay. I have to say I can't remember him
  22. I don't want to appear a nob, but he has autographed himself on that pic and it clearly says David West :laugh:

    Luck is not permanent, at some point all that luck must be something else, unless of course you don't like the bloke that much
