  1. Think I have only been the once: Sunday FA Cup game mid-late 90s. I recall it being generally a miserable day out.
  2. If someone messages me that a UFO has landed on the centre circle and the aliens have come for one of our players, I would be tempted to switch over from The Repair Shop to see who we gave them.
  3. The league position would clearly good. But, I struggle to give a toss.
  4. What do I expect? Another defeat. I honestly have near-zero sense of engagement right now, I'll most likely be swerving it.
  5. Farewell Frank, enjoy snorting cocaine off a dominatrix's backside with the angels. You will be missed.
  6. It doesn't even have poppies on it.... I still don't think this can be legit.
  7. Not read the full detail, but my immediate thoughts are: F>ck Liverpool F>ck United F>ck any other club involved
  8. I am sure I have watched worse on telly, Euros 88 and 92 spring to mind, just I had the misfortune to be in the stadium v Algeria. We were about 60 metres away from the German goal and it looked to have crossed the line clear as day.
  9. That was the worst England game I had attended up to the fiasco v Iceland in 2016. Absolute shitshow of a match.
  10. I am sure that Liverpool will want to sell the rights of their humdinger away at Stoke in place of, say, their games v United, Everton etc ensuring that the lion's share of revenue is included in the "25% to the peasants" pot.
  11. I recall Hornby wrote about this too: basically detailing all the levels that Gus would have excelled from school teams, through district and county levels, through to being a stand-out apprentice at Arsenal. And despite all that, he was still nowhere good enough.
  12. One of the things I like about being a City fan is something Nick Hornby touched on in Fever Pitch. He mentioned a friend of his who is, IIRC, a Luton fan. And is the only Luton fan he knows, compared to all the Arsenal fans he knows. So, everytime he thinks of his friend, he thinks of Luton, and similarly every time he hears a reference to Luton he thinks of his friend. Outside of my circle of friends who support City, I have friends who support a vast range of clubs (Premier league, Football league, foreign clubs), and for many I am likely the only City fan they know. Whether or n
  13. I agree, stripping a relegated team of that funding makes the 2nd tier a more level playing field for the rest. But I'd see that as tossing some baubles to get clubs onside to their power grab.
  14. Based on my current understanding of the plans, I hope we oppose. They might be luring us in, with a stunning picture of our bride-to-be, Scarlett Johansson, but once we have signed the contract, we will get led around the corner and meet the new wife, Ann Widdecombe. As with the reason the Premier League formed in the first place, the big clubs are concerned about what benefits them, not what benefits everyone.
  15. Understood. Thanks for the added info.
  16. I presume this comment was in jest: I guess the return fixture will be an equally soulless behind closed doors pseudo-training match. I don't see any advantage being gained by the home team. I was amused yesterday by the commentators talking about how great it was for the Belgian players to play at Wembley: they could have played it on a training pitch at St Georges Park or a school playing field down the road and still have achieved the same atmosphere.
  17. I wasn't particularly clear what the protected status was at first, but my understanding is that it changes the votes needed for passing a resolution from any 14 clubs to any 6 of the designated 9. Basically handing control to the big 6 clubs. An unabashed power grab in my eyes, and stinks like weeks-old rotting fish.
  18. The cynic in me refuses to accept the Premier League clubs, particularly the big 6, would do anything that benefits anyone but them. Defo voting for the Leopard Eating Faces Party, and then being surprised a leopard ate your face, scenario.
  19. Not sure why they are electing to scrap the Charity Shield, basically a one-off pre-season friendly. Though I guess it frees up the calendar for an additional fixture on some money-spinning tour of the USA or Asia.
  20. Had a similar conversation the other day: (admittedly copied from the fount of knowledge, Wikipedia), the purpose of VAR was to provide a way for "clear and obvious errors" and "serious missed incidents" to be corrected If it takes slo-mo replays and overlaid graphics on a screen to check whether a forward's boot had strayed into an offside position, then to me that was not clear and obvious, nor a serious missed incident. Similarly, taking several angles to decide a ball glanced off a defender's arm having been struck towards him at a close distance. If it spots someone getting lamp
  21. A friend of mine is Uruguayan and supports Peñarol: we agreed some years ago that when Bristol City play them in the final of the FIFA Club World Cup, we'd meet up wherever the game is played. Still waiting.
  22. Similarly you can't make an omelette without putting the horse before the cart.
  23. To be fair, I don't sing it either. It is a dirge, and involves an imaginary being I don't believe in saving an institution I think should be scrapped.
  24. Did we play the "no easy games in international football" card in the post-match presser?
