  1. And what if this guy turns out to be not good enough? Do you then **** off another parent club and break promises?
  2. I genuinely think, under the Ashton Gate lights, with a roaring atmosphere, assuming Liverpool played a similar team (which I think they would have) we would have won that or at least equaled Shrewsburys result. It's a bitter pill to swallow. Klopp has said that he and the 1st team wont be involved in the replay at all as they will be on their holidays and he wants to respect the winter break (but doesn't want to respect the FA Cup and Shrewsbury) I used to like him before those comments. He fielded a weakened team in order for his players to have an extended winter break and now that that gamble has backfired he's going to disrespect the competition and their opponents? I can see Shrewsbury winning the replay now, what a great opportunity for them it is. People are constantly speculating if this Liverpool team can equal what the Arsenal invincible team did, what the Man Utd treble winning team did but my answer to that is no, those teams didnt achieve what they did by playing the kids, they didnt have a winter break, they didnt even moan about the amount of games like Liverpool do, they sinply loved playing and winning. No doubt Liverpool will win the league but their arrogance is starting to grate on me, how they are now looking down on clubs like United who were winning multiple titles whilst Liverpool were finishing below Everton in the league. One good season and suddenly they have forgotten about just how shite they were? I have a feeling that due to the high intensity they play at, due to their absolute obsession with winning a premier league title, they will not win it back to back (which is one of the most difficult things to do) they have given it all to win it the once (in a year where Man City have been blighted by injuries) just like Rosberg and Hunt in F1, they will win it the once and that will be that, unfortunately Liverpool cant retire like those drivers did after they won the title. Those drivers retired immediately after winning because they put so much into winning that one title, they knew they didnt have the motivation in them to win it again as they had already won it, I get a similar feeling about Liverpool. Whilst I'm on the subject of F1 drivers and I moaned about Klopp moaning about fixture congestion, how many F1 races are there now? 21? 22? I know Libeety eventually want to increse it to 25 race weekends a season. That's 25 Thursday-Sundays per season. 3 days of driving a weekend so 75 days of driving a season plus the insane amount of physical training they have to do in order to drive those cars, plus sim work, plus all the briefings, sponsorship and media commitments, whilst travelling all around the world every week yet they rarely moan about it, it is what it is, they just get on with it. Yet footballers need to be wrapped in cotton wool.
  3. Pretty shite atmosphere from the Shrewsbury fans tbh. Ashton Gate would have been a cauldron and from what I've seen so far I'd quite of fancied us to have a real go at this Liverpool team.
  4. Nor me. I seem to have erased the game from my memory, I can remember very little of it.
  5. They will still be free to seek unskilled work in their own country and other EU countries, Just not here. Surely more unskilled jobs for the unskilled British people is a good thing? The money they earn also stays right here in this country and spent in this country instead of being sent 'home'
  6. We are in January, 6 months away from any concert. You would imagine that means there is definitely talks ongoing about another concert otherwise surely at this late stage it would have been ruled out by now?
  7. Can someone tell me what the difference between gambling companies and alcohol companies is? There has been this big issue recently about betting firms but why not alcohol firms? The FA themselves last year signed a multi year contract with Budweiser for the England teams and the FA Cup, why hasn't that recieved the same attention as the gambling firms broadcasting FA Cup games? We can also include airline sponsorship in this, Emirates and Etihad are heavily involved in football, in this day and age, with the publics focus on climate change then why are these firms being allowed to advertise to such a wide audience? The FA cant just pick and choose what it wishes to be associated with, it's either all or none imo.
  8. F1 survived without tobacco sponsorship, football clubs will also survive without betting sponsorship. But it is a tricky one, unlike Tobacco gambling isnt always bad. I have a healthy relationship with gambling, never gambled more than I could afford and only ever do a couple of bets a year, mainly on the national. So for me advertising and offers can be beneficial as I can get the best offers for the little money I do spend. Whilst betting firms are involved in football, that gives football the chance to reform the betting industry, if you start banning it from sports then those reforms may not happen and the problem continues. Football shouldn't just wash its hands with the problem, they have the ability and standing to make a difference. Football has the ability to change and influence societies so imo it's best to keep them on board, allow them to advertise but only if they meet set conditions set by the football authorities.
  9. Hes in the right place. I'm delighted hes scored. Hopefully he can continue that progression until he becomes a Championship player.
  10. I'm sure Matty is professional enough to understand that his parent club may need him for a few months. Whilst hes at Oxford it's likely we are paying a percentage of his wages. Hes had a chance to go away, get himself match fit, play games and score goals, he is ready to be thrown in. In the summer when his contract expires he is free to go his own way, I dont think a few months here is going to majorly piss him off.
  11. This. If we bring in 0 or 1 striker then we need to bring Matty back simply for his impact off of the bench. I can almost guarantee in the remaining games he would get a late winner/equaliser and that could make the difference. Him coming off of the bench also gives the crowd a lift and the effect of that cant be underestimated.
  12. I didnt know this previously but heard on the radio yesterday that when a player is injured it is ultimately up to him what treatment he does and where he receives his rehab, ultimately many choose to do it with their clubs but the likes of Pogba etc who have endless amounts of cash can go to go wherever they like for their rehab. I just think with the motivation Afobe has, he will be back before the end of the season. It's almost like it's written in the stars for him to come back and score a last minute winner in the play off final!
  13. Where as it seems LJ does the complete opposite these days...
  14. Be prepared to be surprised. He will be back by the end of the season, no doubt about it.
