General Weekend/Midweek Football


Recommended Posts

I think Chelsea look better than they did last year. They've got players like Hazard now who have really shown what they can bring to the game and IMO they have a better chance of winning the title than they did last year, I do however agree with you on the fact that they probably won't. I'm tipping either Barcelona or Real Madrid for the top prize after their dissapointing Semi-Final bow-outs last time round.

I love this comment on the BBC website: "If Southampton are to compete for a Champions League place then they really need to be beating these mid table sides."

I wonder how long it'll be until a big club snaps Januzaj up?

I don't know hardly any other results from yesterday apart from ours, and not all that interested to be truthful, my interest in soccer is no longer what it used to be. Today there will be Manchester United and Liverpool and another big game that I can't remember. No love lost for either opposition but I'm hoping United edge a result, can't be too impartial on this.

IMO United set up to defend for the first 45 minutes because they knew Liverpool would come out fighting with the whole Hillsbrough thing. SAF will give them a boot up the arse and tell them to push forward for the win and with Liverpool at 10 men I can see them taking the three points.

It wasn't a red IMO. If you're sending Shelvey off then Evans has to go as well because he did the same bloody thing!

 

Didn't see the challenge originally but after the benefit of seeing it several times I'd agree. Tough call.

 

 

Self defence if he just took the tackle he'd be in a hospital now,

 

Disagree, you can't claim self defence; there's no chance Evans is going into that challenge thinking 'I've gotta go in here or I'll get hurt'

I absolutely guarantee that if that red had gone against us you'd both be crying your eyes out.

 

The bias of some blues against all things Liverpool is laughable.

 

I still think it was dangerous play and that he deserved the red. Perhaps evans should have a red too but that does not take away the fact that Shelvey went in 2 feet first. Red card.

If I was playing football and someone (either team) made a tackle like that I'd be pissed off at them. Shocking challenge that can easily break someones leg. The only player we have who does them stupid challenges is Pienaar, but he lacks the weight to cause any real damage, but he still shouldn't be risking it. There's absolutely no need to go for the ball like that.

If someone dives in at you like that you need to get in the air yourself, take it planted and your legs a gonna.

 

Edit: I haven't got the commentary on either, 4 mins of F1 to go before I start listening to the footy.

Everton would destroy both of these teams on this performance.

 

 

And this is Liverpool playing well compared to their performance at Arsenal!

No doubt, but I don't think that went threw Evans' mind; his eyes were fixed on the ball the whole time, it was a genuine attempt at the ball, which to be fair to him he did get. However, both feet were off the ground, stoods up, warrents a red Red%20card.png .
