  1. Football Thread 2017/18

    Murray is 34. Barnes is.. not suited to international refereeing.

    City can be amazing to watch. Liverpool have more than a punchers chance, Anfield in the first leg and no idea how to defend. It's going to be a fun watch.

    At least the general reaction seems to be "that's not a squad packed with quality" as opposed to "he's picking the wrong players". The only ones that stand out as not good choices for me are Hart and Welbeck - perhaps not coincidentally, players who have previous for being picked on club rather than performance. Even then, as you say, Welbeck has done good things for England. Cutting that to a 23 for Russia, I'd drop Hart, Bertrand, Gomez, Livermore.

    You mean look competent and like they might get through the whole thing and then are completely massacred halfway through? Sounds like they are perfect.

    Pope! Tarks! Brilliant!

    Well, it’s not as if there is likely to soon be a vacancy at a mega rich club which guarantees domestic trophies and a bottomless budget is there?

    So he’s claiming to have been responsible for knocking Manchester United out of the Champions League three times, then.
  8. Three series deal, wasn't it? New New Top Gear is showing them how it could be done, to be honest.

    Nah. He's likely got a relegation clause in the contract and the board know that whoever they appointed wouldn't get them out of it anyway.

    Dear God, no. FH is about seeing the sunshine, not having it blocked off by skyscrapers.

    Sigh. It's stuff like this that makes me miss being in the Championship. You get to this point of the season and if you are in the top 8-10 then every game matters.

    I'm not a fan of current Lamborghinis, but I never realised that the reason I didn't like them was that they weren't outrageous enough. That one with the neon lights and yellow wheels looked all kinds of awesome.

    As for the Hammers, I don't usually have much time for fan protests but then this is a fanbase who have been served up some utter mediocrity while having their ground sold out from under them and replaced with a terrible football stadium. Everyone knew that Upton Park was doomed the moment the Olympics were confirmed.

    Well, the goalie who should be Englands No 1 was playing in the match, at least. Seriously, if Nick Pope isn't at least on the plane to Russia then there is no justice. Who is the competition? Butland? Pickford? Popes beaten them both (with two clean sheets out of three to boot) and notched up the most clean sheets. If you had said to me at the start of the season that a Burnley keeper had a chance of going to the World Cup, I would have considered us to have had a successful season. For it to be our reserve keeper, I would have said you were crazy. Also Ben Mee and James Tarkowski ought to be in with a shout. And Ashley Barnes is attracting interest from the Austrian coach. World's gone mad.
