  1. Very good points @Olé. One of the Real Madrid reasons for this "creation" was that young fans are not coming to football because it is not good enough - so the answer is to create an elite league to which they will flock to the stadia in Europe, probably with games played in Asia and USA to drag in mega dollars and of course by TV. Perhaps the fact that the Spanish league, like many others in Europe (Portugal, France, Holland, Scotland etc) is a three or four team league with the rest not standing an earthly of winning titles/cups. Germany and Italy have a reasonable spread of qualit
  2. I certainly don't want more VAR. But I'd like refs and linesmen to go on immediate first reaction. After all that is what happened before tv. Mistakes made but in the large majority of cases, they got it right.
  3. Were you watching on live tv? If so what was your first reaction immediately it happened? Not 30 seconds after or after several different tv replays? I'm asking not criticising. @Steve Watts My reaction was no penalty. Ref had almost same sort of view as live tv and certainly did not react immediately it occurred. However it's rumoured that it was the lino, approx forty yards away with a totally different angle and unable to hear the ball bouncing off the bar, who was the one that insisted to ref that it was a pen. The red is overturned but could we have got all three
  4. So will the League do to Harrington what the Rugby did to a ref that goofed up big time by giving a penalty try against Bristol Bears that wasn't? Rugby did not use him for at least another full season. Bet Harrington will still be out there next Saturday!
  5. I fit this scenario at this time. For football reasons, I'm considering whether to renew or not because with three years of complete dross and minimal entertainment, it's not an attractive proposition. I also feel that our club is not ours anymore. Those who run it, in the main, seem to treat us as if we'll keep coming back whatever happens. The employment of Nigel Pearson or another with similar experience and achievement, may well encourage me to renew. Now add to the above the other influences on renewing or not. I am approaching 78 years, relatively fit and healthy, except
  6. As the Lansdowns may have been in isolation since last week and could now test to come out, does anybody know or think that we may soon have a meeting with Nigel Pearson to settle whether he comes or goes?
  7. Let the greedy sods go and it will benefit our league football. No longer a half a dozen mega rich clubs creating a league competition in which only one of them will ever win the title (yes I know Leicester City performed a miracle as the first non biggie since Blackburn). Matches will be more even and the competitiveness of the Championship will be added to those in the Premiership. It might even minimize the manic fear of relegation that has existed since the Premier League Megabuck TV deals began to spoil the beautiful game.
  8. No, No, YES! He's been taking the pi$ all the time he's been here.
  9. My goodness, how you have aged since I last saw you @Abraham Romanovich
  10. And before anyone days it, that isn't a criticism of Kalas. He's a very good footballer but not the leader type personality.
  11. The goals would flow from a couple of ten year old kids if we had creators in midfield. John Atyeo might have managed 35 in his career instead of 350 with our current attacking attitude. I look at every team we play against and I regularly see twenty to fifty metre passes to players in front of the passer. We play one per game, so many of ours are sideways and backwards. Our squad has been brainwashed over the last 3/4 seasons to play keep ball among the midfield and defence. Bentley receives more passes than any other player on the pitch. That is the problem!
  12. Unable to change hands at 99? @ReadySteadyGo
  13. Don't be silly. Football clubs are a hive of nicknames that having absolutely zero influence on whether a player stays or goes.
