  1. Nuts game. Thought we had blown in with two overs left, thought we had won it with two balls left, then in the super over thought we had won it after our over and lost it with two balls left. Has a real stroke of luck with the defllected six, and got to feel for NZ, never beat them on runs in 50 or 1 overs. Not sure why you go to the tie breaker after a super over, either decide it that way in 50, or have another super over with new players. Felt a bit like going to penalties, both sides score then decide it on corners in the match. Simply fantastic match however.
  2. Apparently the fans are getting a bit annoyed by their strikers since they have been wearing this stuff. In training it appears all they are doing is knocking back junk food, taking a shot at goal, and knocking off early. Or as a fan said to me all their number 9 does now is ‘eats shoots and leaves’. ...will get my coat.
  3. No, really... https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/48869499 Not an obvious one to me having no real understanding of different materials, but a further statement of their green credentials, so fair plar to them I guess. Certainly going to carry on doing it their (or at least their Chairman’s) way.
  4. I have a funny feeling it might turn on how any loans turn out. At the moment, we look about the same, albeit it’s our team, rather than including the loans: the good loans of last year are now in the main ours, so ‘our’ team is stronger. The loan market will be tighter this year, but a couple of good ones on top of our signings and we are in a good place.
  5. At half time did not see us getting as close to them as a missed penalty. Dang it.
  6. Thought overall the score was a bit flattering, could have well finished 5-3. No idea how they kept a clean sheet really, but some lovely play going forward. Random fact, there might actually have been the odd Scot or Welsh person cheering. Randomly, the Europeans are using this WC as the qualifier for the Olympics, abd the top 3 Euro sides qualify, which we must now be. We qualify as GB & NI.
  7. Offensively, as good as we have played so far. Still think both sides defensively are leaving gaps, and we have just exploited them better. Bronze and Bright for me playing really well.
  8. Good news if true. Just me being a pedant, but heading needs a question mark. Read it as confirmed, got excited, then, oh, looks good but not confirmed.
  9. Model professional. Many times when he was on the bench he continued to have a positive attitude without complaint, always ready to step back in to the team, often then earning an extended run. Must have seen off three or four others who all for a period looked like the next chosen one, always having in time to fall back on steady and reliable FF. Wish him every success.
  10. The worry is that this is a sign of things to come. Blasted at her from about a yard, is clearly taking her hand away from the ball, and the deciding penalty is given. Japan played some lovely football, and have been robbed. 26th pen of the cup, basically any contact with a hand is given. VAR and this rule are just making it a lottery.
  11. I agree, but although I hate it, there was in fairness a ‘good’ use of VAR just now in the Brazil France game. Brazil put the ball in the net, flagged for offside. In seconds it was shown she was onside and the goal was given, What gets my goat is when a minute after the event, they go to VAR and then can literally take 3-4 minutes to get a decision.
  12. It’s going to become a bigger and bigger issue in all tournaments I fear. Again six minutes added to the first half here because if VAR, and it’s still debated whether it was the right call or not. Spoils it totally when it takes three minutes to make a call.
  13. Awful and brilliant second half really. Ref lost control. Might be being very unfair, but this team reminds me a fair bit of the men’s team in the last WC. Cannot knock the results, but left with the feeling when they come up against one of the top teams they will really struggle. Hopefully they can find that extra gear or two they are going to need.
  14. Very lucky it’s nor 2-1. It’s like they forgot how to defend. (psst..’rout’)
  15. Agreed. Bloody stupid in both cases in my book.
