    League 1, 2, Non League Football 2018-19 Season

    What a fucking waste of £10 that was. Lost 3-1 after going ahead. We're now one point off the bottom four. What a bunch of dickheads.

    We're away at Gillingham today in a real six pointer. We're three points off the bottom four and Gillingham are four points off it. I've bought the ifollow match pass - never used it before as I go to the non-Saturday home games and our away form is usually terrible so I have never been tempted. £10 seems not too bad really as I'll invite my Dad up to watch it. If we play like we did last weekend, we'll get a hammering. We've got Barnsley at home on Monday - not looking forward to that if we don't get a result today.

    I'm in the defenders club as an ex semi-pro centre half (despite being 5ft 11).

    It's probably just our own English media and the pundits trying to whip up hype but did anyone genuinely believe that Man City would win the four titles they qualified to compete in this season? I didn't. I thought they'd win the Premier League and possibly the FA Cup but wouldn't have put them as favourites to win the Champions League (the League Cup is a weird competition as the vast majority of teams rest their players - even League 1 and 2 clubs do this and anyone can win it, Burton Albion got to the semi-finals). Even if they'd beaten Spurs yesterday, Barcelona are still in the competition and Liverpool can beat Man City in a one off game. To win everything, you have to play 6 FA Cup games and win them all, Premier League is 38 games, League Cup is 6, Champions League is 13 and you have to win almost every game to win all four competitions. That's 63 games starting in August and yes, they have a very big squad of very good players but to win 90-95% of those games is a massive challenge. Yesterday, picking Kompany and Mendy in that back four was a mistake - Mendy's distribution was really poor and Kompany just hasn't got the pace any more. Having said that, Spurs never gave up and the VAR probably gave the right result but in real time, I was convinced that was handball - the angle the ref had wasn't conclusive and I do feel there needs to be some kind of written rules for it - i.e. if you aren't 100% sure, you favour the defending team and do not award the goal. What a game though, it had everything.

    How are Ajax in the semis? If they win this, it'll be like Leicester winning the league or Wimbledon winning the FA Cup. They're probably paying players less than most League 1 clubs pay their players.

    Watched the first Bear Grylls episode yesterday - it's interactive. It is aimed at kids and feels like a CBBC series. My middle child was angry with it as you can't kill Bear Grylls.

    Ashley Barnes got booked yesterday for kissing Joe Bennett on the nose. Cardiff are virtually relegated. 5 points off Brighton with 5 games left and Brighton have a game in hand. and the goal difference is hugely in Brighton's favour so that's another point. They play Brighton next Tuesday and anything but a Cardiff win won't be good enough as they've got Man Utd and Liverpool still to play. Cardiff were a surprise promotion last season and I think Warnock will likely retire at the end of the season. Love him or loathe him, I think he's the last manager of his type we'll ever see.

    3rd time lucky? We need to win a game soon. We've crept closer to that bottom four over the last three games and we're 3 points off it now. We finished last season in the play off places and slumped in the last 6 and history tends to repeat itself at Plymouth Argyle. If we finish this season like we did last season, we'll be playing in League 2 next season. We need a win - we've got Accrington and Gillingham away and Scunthorpe at home left, we need 5 points from those 3 fixtures to be properly safe.

    I'll have a go. Liverpool fans are known as the LDF (Liverpool Defence Force) as they're insufferable in their support of the club - they're like religious zealots but worse. Arsenal fans think they have a divine right to win trophies and when they beat lesser teams with dodgy goals, they see it as morally right as they're ARSENAL - the best news and views available on Arsenal are on Youtube - just search for Arsenal TV. Chelsea fans never admit to being a Chelsea fan if they aren't surrounded by other Chelsea fans as, like the EDL or UKIP or Leave Voters, they're partially ashamed of themselves in polite company. Man Utd fans don't really enjoy football any more now that Fergie left - they're a bit like old people who just sigh a lot when they remember that they were young and vibrant and healthy. they like Ole though - the baby faced assassin. Nobody likes any commentator at all, ever - regardless of who they are or what they've said. If you admit to liking any of them, you'll be pilloried in this thread so don't do it. Even if you like Jonathan "Robot Wars" Pearce on Match of The Day, just keep it to yourself. There are only 25,000 real Man City fans left in the wild - the new ones who fill the Etihad are like a splinter group and not one of them remembers players like Jon Macken. There is no other football than the Premier League - apart from some posters who go to great lengths to describe the machinations of obscure leagues in places you didn't know existed. Ask @Fry Crayola about the second division of Bhutan and he'll probably give you a comprehensive history of teams you can't even find on a Google search. Steve McClaren has a hair island and Sean Dyche has a disc beard. Nobody collects Pannini stickers any more got, got, got, need, got, got Don't ever listen to anything Jermaine Jenas says. Garth Crooks is a high functioning serial killer. That's about it. Who do you support?

    That's awful @wullie - when you were forced to move to Northampton, it was just horrible to see a proud old club who were, not long ago, a perennial top flight side having to traipse to what is very much a lower league ground to play 'home' fixtures.

    That looks bad in a still shot. In real time, Kane shouldn't have even gone for this challenge and he put himself at risk being late and in an area where he didn't need to be making a challenge. Kane last night was trying to hammer La Porte and Otamendi at every opportunity. Delph didn't really do anything wrong and that still shot is Delph following through a clearance/pass and then Kane arrives after the ball had gone. If either were booked for this challenge it would have been Kane. I thought Spurs were lucky last night to meet a City side who just looked wobbly in possession and didn't go forward enough. Sane and De Bruyne should have come on with at least half an hour to go. I was impressed with Lucas though, really direct and powerful and he caused City some problems. The game also confirmed my suspicions that Kyle Walker is rubbish - I'd be surprised if he was there next season. Delph didn't shine either. I'm looking forward to tonight though with a knackered Man Utd side facing Messi and co. I can see this being Ole's first big humiliation.

    Yes. 2001/2 in League 2, Graham Coughlan scored 11 in League 2 for us and we won the league.
