  1. That’s an entirely fair and legitimate comment and my normal prejudices are once again exposed! I genuinely think Orr was better as a full-back and Carey was far better as a CB than RB but forgetting to mention him was a glaring error! Yeah... Bailey, Scott, Barnard, Bell, Brennan, McAllister, Cunningham, Bryan and now Dasilva... I’ve probably missed a couple of useful ones there as well!
  2. Do Blackburn supporters still hate Bradders? If they do, I suggest if they listen to this podcast they might reappraise his time with them. His loyalty to their club in accepting the potential risks to play when he did is mental. Especially when others were making the demands that they did*. Slightly off-topic, having more time than usual, my brother and I did a draft somewhat like Stanley did on a rival podcast month or two back. Our rules were anyone who played for us from 1988/89 to 2014/15 due to "reasons". With the caveat of Luke Ayling (who never really played right-back for us but probably would have been excellent (see, Leeds United)), Orr is so far and away the best we have had in that time period, it's not even close. I was furious when my brother got him as the alternatives really are honest but limited (Llewellyn, Locke), utter shitehawks (Hunt, Foster) or in Liam Rosenior's case a bumbling balls up...
  3. The finest football programmes are inevitably parodies. Eleven Men Against Eleven https://m.imdb.com/title/tt0127535/ Bostock’s Cup https://m.imdb.com/title/tt0201378/ Both absolutely worth a watch. Though 11 men against 11 probably hasn’t dated well!
  4. This was so, so hard. To pick a team that can actually defend as well as attack is mindbendingly difficult. I figured I had to pick Messi and Ronaldo who are the best I have ever seen and everything else was just working around that. I had Neuer in goal for ages, but just couldn't think of anyone better than Mattheus to complement Gazza and Dunga in the middle. The drop off to Akinfeev isn't that big... is it? 1. Igor Akinfeev CSKA/Russia 2. Dario Srna Hadjuk/Shakhtar/Cagliari/Croatia 3. Paolo Maldini Milan/Italy 4. Dunga Internacional/Coirinthians/Santos/Vasco Da Gama/Pisa/Fiorentina/Pescara/Stuttgart/Jubilo Iwata/Brazil 5. Virgil Van Dijk Groningen/Celtic/Southampton/Liverpool/Netherlands 6. Vincent Kompany Anderlecht/SV Hamburg/Man City/Belgium 7. Cristiano Ronaldo Sporting Lisbon/Man U/Real/Juve/Portugal 8. Paul Gascoigne Newcastle/Spurs/Lazio/Rangers/Boro/Everton/England 9. Kylian Mbappe Monaco/PSG/France 10. Lionel Messi Barca/Argentina 11. Lothar Matthaus Monchengladbach/Bayern/Inter/Germany There are at least 3 Manchester United players in there, mate.
  5. As far as the 10 year season ticket - Wasn't offering something along those lines, one of the contributing factors into Rangers' financial meltdown?
  6. Absolutely Go. The issue is more to do with finding someone who is happy to work within the parameters of the Head Coach role that City have created. It limits who we can recruit if we’re not looking to alter that in any serious way. By and large, I did think most of us were happy with that template and honestly I think there is even less likelihood of Lansdown ripping that up than he is letting LJ go. For what it’s worth, I have a sneaking suspicion that McAllister in charge might actually see us sort ourselves out. I reckon it won’t be continuity aimlessness which would be the fear. Though equally understand people’s fear of that.
  7. As his accent travels slowly along the M5, it's clear he's currently just south of Worcester. He'll hit Cheltenham in 2023. Addition of 'L' to then end of words during the transfer window in the summer of 2025.
  8. (Freeview Channel 67)3: Babestation
  9. Though I had Subbuteo and played it a fair amount I never really took to it. Really, I was a great adherent of Tomy’s Super Cup Football. What a game that was.
  10. Not much more to say here other than: Yes!
  11. Nats bats gone completely to sleep. Was a hard watch last night. Game 3 we looked as good as Houston, just couldn't drive the runners in. Not the case last night. We looked exactly like we were portrayed in the media before the series.
  12. I was reading about this. It seems like ridiculous hubris (and of course they lost game 3 last night (damn it all)) but basically the in house crew just have to do what MLB tell them during the post season. Bearing in mind everything that Manfred has had to deal with over the last few days I reckon he'd prefer the stage to come together than fall apart!
  13. I was absolutely bricking the last 3 innings. Rainey got so scared after Springer took him deep he just couldn't bring himself to throw a strike. Then it all went weird. Robles throwing the wrong base allowing a runner to move up to 2nd followed by Springer's opposite field shot that Eaton couldn't snag that he only got a double out of when it should have been a triple because he was watching it instead of running. Still, it went our way. Need a bit more from Kendrick and Rendon tonight as it's unrealistic to expect Soto to be able to carry the offence all series.
