  1. Bobby Reid, CAM?

    Bobby Reid isn't twice as effective in midfield, he's half as effective. There's a reason he's been a revelation this season and it's all to do with narrowing his responsibility to attacking and pressing, not marking or positioning. Moving him back into midfield would be an epic mistake.
  2. Messi

    He is without doubt the best there's ever been. He's eclipsed Pele, Maradona, Best and even Bob Taylor.
  3. Harry Kane - Dive or fouled!

    This is sometimes true when someone is running at full sprint speed and the touch catches them at the wrong point in their stride. It is not true with anything like the frequency that it is used to excuse blatant diving. Otherwise you'd see players falling over like this everywhere else on the pitch but they seem to do it around the opponent's 18 yard box about ten times as often. Funny that eh?
  4. Harry Kane - Dive or fouled!

    He chose to go down, and when a player does that they are cheating and should be banned.
  5. Harry Kane - Dive or fouled!

    You did, above. "GK did touch him so he was fouled." Not true. Contact does not mean there is a foul. Going down when you could carry on is cheating, which is what happened here.
  6. Harry Kane - Dive or fouled!

    And Deulofeu dives again tonight for Watford in a match where they've already benefited from the softest second yellow you'll ever see. Mind you any side with Hazard and Fabregas in deserves it.
  7. Harry Kane - Dive or fouled!

    100% dive. Every player should be making every effort to stay on their feet at all times and carry on. Any little bit less is cheating. I hope he's punished retrospectively but I suspect he won't be. I still think the only way to stop this will be to put massive retrospective bans on it. It's a shame Alli got booked rather than punished retrospectively, his embarrassing dive was worth a good five game ban.
  8. Leeds manager sacked!

    That club is absolutely ******* hilarious.
  9. Twitter - Liam Walsh - hmmm !!

    Lost count of the number of times I've hit like on something when trying to scroll a touch screen because designers make the hit box huge to get accidental clicks.
  10. I'd never before realised that Zac Clough was previously an extra in Mars Attacks! **** me he makes Robert Earnshaw look like Brad Pitt.
  11. Baker's ban could force Flint to stay .

    The only source I can find for that is the S*n which isn't reliable. Violent conduct is definitely three games, serious foul play seems far less clear.
  12. Appeal Baker’s red?

    If it's a three game ban I would appeal it, there's a reasonable chance they'll do a Bailey Wright given the exaggeration and holding the wrong part of his body.
  13. Baker's ban could force Flint to stay .

    I think it depends on the referee's report and it's not a given. I can't find anything on the FA site mandating ban lengths but FIFA say all red cards must mean at least one game suspended. There are examples of one game bans.
  14. Baker's ban could force Flint to stay .

    Since when?
  15. Baker's ban could force Flint to stay .

    No, there isn't and wasn't. There's no chance of a £40m offer from Liverpool and if in this fantasy it came in Flint would be gone in about 30 seconds whether Baker had a ban or not. Since when was this going to be a three game ban?
