  1. No you’re right, ‘waxing lyrical’ wasn’t appropriate - but you’ve said loads of times on here you don’t care about former players yet you still post about them - same with your views on Scottish football
  2. I’m assuming you’ve watched lots of ‘live’ games - but there are countless examples of modern players not being able to control a ball - do you really think they are all perfect and can’t fail to control a ball? Have you not watched Fammy? Not picking on him, there are loads of examples ...
  3. Woah back, woah back Robbored - you’ve constantly posted on here over the years that you aren’t interested in City players once they leave the club .... now you’re waxing lyrical about an ex centre half ... ?! You’re complex ...
  4. Fair enough - I appreciate your views. It’s difficult to compare players from such vastly different eras, I think many players back then in the ‘70s and ‘80s were better because they had much, much less protection from referees, they played on pretty appalling pitches, the kits were made of heavier material, the balls were a lot heavier (unlike the beach balls of today), they didn’t have dieticians and fitness coaches monitoring their food intakes and the fat content in their bodies etc etc etc - yet they still displayed astonishing skills and resilience in dreadful conditions with hatchet men trying to slice them in half - they earned about double what ‘normal’ people earned, they lived in semi detached houses and they drove Ford Capris - they were connected with the fans, far more loyal to their clubs and far more embedded in their communities - all this transferred itself onto the pitch where they tried their hearts out for their club. They were far more committed to their clubs and localities than players are today ...
  5. Fair enough, you’ve never seen a modern player mis-control a football or mis-place a simple pass. And I didn’t say a modern player has refused to play on a muddy pitch, I said players these days would take one look at a pitch like the one at The Baseball Ground in the ‘70s and they’d refuse to play .... you don’t think they would?
  6. No need to apologise - we just happen to have different opinions on the play offs. They are/were even more ridiculous in rugby union but I just don’t think they are fair in the football world - for a team in lower mid table to be in with a chance of promotion with a few games to go just isn’t right. If the table doesn’t lie then the top teams should go up automatically without having to prove themselves again (against teams they’ve already played) in a mini league. If the play offs were reformed I’d feel better about them. I’ve said for years that if teams in 3rd to 6th go into the play offs then it should go like this: 5th plays at home to 6th Then 4th plays at home against the winner of that game Then 3rd plays the winner of that game at Wembley for a promotion place This would mean that the team finishing 6th would have to work harder to go up via the play offs than the team finishing 3rd, they’d have to earn it Just a thought ...
  7. ....and breathe! I totally agree with everything on your list - I’d probably add playoffs though - it’s criminal that you can finish third in a division and not go up when a team finishing several places below you can waltz into the division above ... I remember way back when Wolves were in the depths, they lost to Aldershot (who’d finished 6th) in the 4th division play offs when they ended the season quite a few points ahead of the Shots and had beaten them home and away that season ...
  8. Agree - but I think this also shows how good the players back in the ‘70s were - they played on mud baths - especially at The Baseball Ground etc - but they still managed to produce huge skill and exciting games - these days players would look at a surface like that and refuse to play, yet the over-paid show ponies of today still regularly demonstrate how they can’t control a ball and play a simple pass, even on a ‘snooker table’ surface of a pitch ...
  9. Well that’s taken the mood down ... I now feel inclined to sit in a darkened room illuminated only by one pink lightbulb, listen to Jesus & Mary Chain b-sides and sip a mellow merlot while staring wistfully at the wall opposite ....
  10. I know you’re only joking - but when you see a player take a corner on MOTD and behind him you just see loads of people filming the corner kick on their phones and iPads, I don’t like that ....
  11. With the greatest of respect “ohhhshauntaylor” - doesn’t that line up suggest it was 3-4-1-2 ?
  12. Apologies, my response should have been worded more reasonably. The further a club goes in a competition they are more likely to draw a top club, drawing a big premier league club in the latter stages of a cup competition is likely rather than lucky. Leeds have drawn bigger clubs as they’ve progressed further - like we did in our league cup run as you rightly point out. Anyway, apologies again for my original reply ...
  13. Don’t the third round ties have to be played between the 3rd and 6th January 2020? That should help any London congestion ...
