  1. They haven’t got two games in hand ...
  2. I bet Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could give you a list ...
  3. Eh? Sampdoria hardly wear ‘plain’ and ‘unique’ blue and white if you’re including the ‘stripe’ (hoop?) - zillions of clubs wear blue shirts and white shorts - Sampdoria ain’t special ...
  4. ... and if this was Nathan Baker he’d be ignorantly slagged off relentlessly as being ‘always injured’ - I just think we should afford our best defender the same ‘slack’ as we give other players rather than get on his back all the time ...
  5. No worries mate, I was wanging on about the 2013/2014 season when Liverpool narrowly missed out on winning the Premier League title by two points to Man City even though both teams scored over 100 league goals that season! Then I respectfully realised you were talking about a much more recent season - hence my humble edit! Apologies ...
  6. Edit - apologies, ignore, got it totally wrong!
  7. Yep, I reckon that’s how much they’ll spend on it ...
  8. Yep - a geezer stood behind me got into The Gate about five minutes after kick off for that game - at the end he said ‘decent point that’ - his face when I told him ...
  9. 1980 - 1982 makes those eras seem highly successful - thank God there wasn’t an online Forum when we plummeted from the top division in England to the bottom of division 4 ... but we are still here and we are still right behind them - a bit of perspective is probably needed - yes the fans’ expectations are soooo different now but we are currently competing in the fifth best division in the world and we are doing ok - don’t give up on our club just yet ...
  10. That’ll be a track on the next Half Man Half Biscuit album ...
  11. I’m out the loop on this - so lots of clubs have boycotted the competition?! That is big news ... haven’t seen that reported anywhere
  12. It wasn’t bad refereeing - kicking the ball away after the whistle has blown is time wasting and a yellow card offence ...
  13. Further to my post about Eddie McGoldrick being well into his 50s now (decent player at Arsenal back in the day tho) I thought I’d point out that, despite your thread title, the Blades play at Bramall Lane - I only pointed out these two mistakes as you are probably keen to promote your podcast - but credibility could suffer if you make basic errors - good luck
  14. Well, we’ll probably have to see Chris Martin perform in snowy conditions soon - how will he get on? Has anyone seen his Coldplay? ...
  15. We could ask Bielsa for a peek at his files? They may be a bit out of date but could give some interesting insights
  16. Childish and pathetic as always - I’ve only just logged in so forgive me for not devoting hours catching up on loads of posts featuring other posters picking you up on the guff you posted - I read your initial post and decided to reply - that’s the function of a forum - it certainly doesn’t warrant your response ... no worries, I’m off to converse with adults now ...
  17. I remember that - December 1990 - Ron Atkinson was their manager and for us it was Martin Scott’s debut - I clearly recall the hushed silence that fell over the Owls’ usual superb away following when it was announced over the tannoy that the M32, M4, M5 and M1 were all shut due to the weather - and City fans just laughing at the announcement wouldn’t have helped their mood - the Sheffield Wednesday squad had to check into a Bristol hotel that night as they couldn’t get home and a fair few Owls’ fans headed straight to Weston super Mare to seek solace at being marooned in the West Country
  18. Very poor post and utterly clueless - Bakes played in every game bar two this season up until his serious injury at WBA - and one of those he was on the bench. Then three matches later after he’d recovered he was straight back into the team and stayed there - today’s injury was another serious one - you obviously don’t know how long he was given treatment on the pitch - so you thought you’d post a lazy, ill informed and presumptuous load of guff
  19. Fair enough, if that’s true, but it still shows that the advantage many seem to think that Rovers have on a weekly basis just doesn’t exist - Rovers have had five players sent off against opposing sides this season and, according to you, opposing sides have had five players sent off in games vs the gas - so ‘nothing to see here’ in terms of the way some believe Rovers are somehow ‘favoured’ by referees - and, as I stated above, they’ve only been awarded one penalty this season - so that one falls down too - and it has to be borne in mind that the five opposing players sent off against the gas can be forgiven, after all they were all playing in a Cup Final so were undoubtedly pumped up and full of adrenaline and aggression ...
  20. Obviously I have no affection for the gas whatsoever but everyone seems to think that Rovers’ opponents get red cards every week and Rovers get awarded a penalty every week - the reality this season is that Rovers have had more players sent off than any other league two team and they’ve only been awarded one penalty ... I apologise as I know this doesn’t fit in with the widely held perceptions on here but I just thought some facts would provide a bit of balance ...
  21. Weimann hatrick - Blades 2 City 3 - immediately after an international break - Sheffield United were promoted to the premier league that season too - cracking result
  22. He’ll be using a Zimmer frame before he considers managing that mob
  23. The counter press (or gegenpress) tactic can be traced back to the 1960s in England and the Dutch National team used it at the 1974 World Cup - also Sacchi used it with his AC Milan teams in the 1980s - I’m not sure Rangnick can claim to be its inventor but he may have opened Klopp’s eyes to its effectiveness as Klopp’s Mainz and Dortmund sides seemed to revive the gegenpress ...
  24. Well they could live in leafy Cheshire - as do most of the footballers who represent Manchester and Liverpool clubs ...
