  1. Removing all intent from the handball rule would be the worst possible outcome; as Roy Hodgson pointed out, the aim of the rule is to stop players cheating by intending to control the ball with their hand or arm. Penalising accidental contact would be/is farcical.
  2. No, no. Rhodes is in Greece; bronze signifies third place. Third place in the Greek league at the moment are Olympiakos. Simples.
  3. The only sensible rule is the old one - handball has to be deliberate and the ref uses his common sense to judge intent. No defender commits deliberate handball in the area unless preventing a virtually certain goal. Making rules about where your arms are - that’s a nonsense.
  4. I think a lot of fans start from the default position of hoping & expecting us to be dominant. When we're matched, they say we've been rubbish. I watch a lot of cautious even first halves then hear this reaction.
  5. Tomlin gives Cardiff hope. Suddenly I want him to do well.
  6. Alan Carr, m’lud, is known as a popular entertainer amongst the hoi polloi, though he has no discernible talent. He is the son of the obscure sporting trainer mentioned.
  7. There are hundreds if not thousands of posters on here. Most are reasonable but a significant number are not. The original post in this thread (I haven't researched Bat Fastard) is brief and fairly bland.
  8. I don't think the OP misrepresents anyone - it just calls out those who DID spout over the top personal criticism; a minority, but not a tiny minority.
  9. http://redirect.viglink.com/?key=01868f92fbfbe96767e14b485522ccc4&subId=800541&u=https%3A//drive.google.com/file/d/12vniGeSIEQj3FOmJD68QQya6U1gW_Snq/view%3Fusp%3Dsharing This is a link from the Oatcake for the full match. Warning - naff biased Radio Stoke commentary involved.
  10. I think it’s pretty clear the board communicated what they thought at the time, but sensibly kept quiet during the interview process while their views changed. When they sacked LJ they probably thought an interesting outsider would be the likely appointment, but as time went on, either the other candidates didn’t impress them as much as they expected, or were too expensive, or wanted more control than they were willing to cede. Its far too early to say whether DH will be successful, but at least the early signs are good. Like most people I was tempted by the track records of Hughton, Cook
  11. That’s easy - no trophies leaves us on zero!
  12. I just don’t see how you can ignore history when assessing size of club. Stoke have spent 62 seasons in the top flight of English football. Compare that with us. They are a top club on that basis alone.
  13. For the pedants among us, it’s Tangier, not Tangiers! A common error.
  14. They obviously gave me yours. If you can find my gaffe I've got a spare chair in front of the PC.
