*grumbles*

Football. Bah! Couldn't those Britons have used their time for something worthwhile instead of football. Bah.

*walks away grumbling*

Well, an American football player testing positive for Covid-19. Then they found a dangerous heart condition so he is out for the season. Potentially extending his life.

in a rather changed world, its so good that Scottish football continues to be a complete farce (apart from the wonderful Highland League of course):

Well as a Rangers fan there is a very large part of me laughing my butt off, but as you know, I get no pleasure from Scottish football being so dire.

Sad state of affairs. Do you think there is any possibility Spurs could apply to join the SPL? I mean the gulf in quality may close over time and hopefully Spurs won't get thrashed too much in the meantime.....

I have to say well done to England on two fine performances... in the bedroom.....

I don't know what is worse, English football or English footballers (with a few notable exceptions of course).

Pathetic.

That is an easy question. The answer is, of course, the honourable performance of the Swedish team.

didn't expect Mourinho to try to get sacked quite this early in the season

Well I feared it would be bad (on the basis that maybe, just maybe it would be okay). I was not expecting that SoS. I mean what was that?

I didn't know much about Holberg (although wasn't impressed when he eventually came on for Denmark last week) but he was..... I mean if this guy has been brought in to strengthen the tackling in midfield then once again we've been robbed - whatever he cost. He really wasn't very good - and that is the kindest way I can put it.

Doherty showed promising signs going forward, and Harry tried as usual, but the rest? I give Mourinho no more than a couple of months.

This is going to be a relegation battle. That was just so bad.

Just finished watching the ninth and last of All or Nothing. The fact is, all the things that we lacked in the Everton game, in terms of performance, Jose has been trying to instil in the team over the last 19 months. Fact is - his team are not listening to him.....




wodin -> RE: All things Football (soccer) related (9/18/2020 9:39:45 AM)

I want Mourinho out asap. Ruining Spurs and how they've always played football win or lose. Now they play boring and still lose




wodin -> RE: All things Football (soccer) related (9/18/2020 9:41:19 AM)

Did we loose against Everton? We never loose against them, ever! I have said I wish we had got Evertons manager




wodin -> RE: All things Football (soccer) related (9/21/2020 12:43:13 PM)

5-2 win that's better. Plus Bale is back.




wodin -> RE: All things Football (soccer) related (9/21/2020 9:39:54 PM)

Watched the highlights, beautiful play between Kane and Son. With Bale back in October they say there is no reason why we can't have a top four season, what a difference a week makes. Bale could bring alot of experience in the dressing room regarding big games including big European games. Plus he is bound to win us games during the season, hopefully Son stays fit and on the form he is, Bale slots in good and Kane has a good season. I think we have the strongest line up we've had in recent years.




RangerJoe -> RE: All things Football (soccer) related (9/22/2020 1:35:59 AM)

Why do you want experience in the dressing room? Can't they dress themselves properly? I would think that it would be more important to have experience on the field if you want to win! [8D]

Indeed. Even one match can make all the difference in the world. Our season is down the drain. A complete waste. And then a good match against the local rivals, and somehow the season doesn't seem all that bad. [:D]




loki100 -> RE: All things Football (soccer) related (10/4/2020 4:09:38 PM)

ok, I retract everything, Mourinho is clearly still a genius (or Man Utd are a wee bit over-rated?)




warspite1 -> RE: All things Football (soccer) related (10/4/2020 7:22:57 PM)

Well, as I've always said, football is the greatest game ever. FACT.[:)]

After the Everton shambles, the thing about the Southampton, Newcastle (which we should of won) Chelsea (second half) and Manchester United games is that, for the first time in two years we actually weren't stinking the place out - we actually played quite well....[X(] It can't last [:(]




RangerJoe -> RE: All things Football (soccer) related (10/4/2020 7:34:41 PM)

Personally, I think that the game of LIFE is the greatest game ever!




Piteas -> RE: All things Football (soccer) related (10/5/2020 3:41:10 PM)

You trust Bale a lot.
Remember that the Real has sold him because he played more golf than soccer in Madrid. [;)]

I think the jury is out. We know how good the player was that left us, we don't know exactly what player has returned.

But let's put it this way. He will need to totally arse things up at Spurs not to be considered a footballing god at White Hart Lane. If he is half the player he was in his final season then he will still be 10 times the player Dele Alli is and the White Hart Lane faithful will worship him.

Taxi for Maicon......

It seemed to me that at the weekend the top clubs in the premier league had some kind of challenge.





loki100 -> RE: All things Football (soccer) related (10/6/2020 2:46:10 PM)

och if you want a challenge, lets see if anyone can come up with a more awful kit design than this.

For the unitiated (ie everyone else), Queens Park are an amateur side that occasionally reach the heights of the Scottish 2nd div, play to crowds of 2-300 at Hampden Park (capacity around 60,000). It is a pretty surreal experience to nip along for a home match

Yes indeedy. The FA Cup has only left England once - and that was when the mighty Cardiff City beat Arsenal 1-0 in 1927(?). I don't know if its true or an urban myth, but the Arsenal goalkeeper that day was supposed to be Welsh (Lewis?) and the conspiracy theorists believe he let the goal in on purpose...... [8|]

Who cares? Arsenal lost so all is right with the world [:)]

exactly Arsenal losing can never be a conspiracy, merely the correct order of the cosmos ..[8D]

I understand that one of the teams let their mascot go. I wonder if the mascot is going to be replaced with someone in full hazmat gear? [;)]

to be fair one of the Arsenal players has just offered to pay for the mascot out of his own earnings. Now I'm sure % wise its not going to hurt him but it is a decent gesture at a time when losing your job is going to have real consequences

Thanks a lot for this wonderful information. It was really helpful.
