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.

Still not sold on Chelsea... They have good attacking players but they still look soft through the middle and at the back. Mikel is piss poor (their version of Neville), Terry & Lampard are on the decline, and Luiz is decent but inconsistent. They still arent even close to the Mourinho squads.

When Ambramovich or however you spell it, gets bored and goes back to Russia with his cash, they'll most likely fall apart and go back to where they were under Hoddle in the mid 1990s. May be a slow decline, but I can see this occuring, clubs like these don't stay at the top forever.

Wigan - Fulham. Sidwell and McCarthy sandwiched the ref Lee Probert. Only watched the last 10 mins and it's all Fulham, Rogdella and Berba causing problems.

 

0-1 Rodgella, a few boos but he doesn't celebrate.

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.

We need united to be dropping points - it could be the difference between 1st and 2nd for us come may!!!

 

Exactly why I'd rather a shite win or a draw ;).

 

We may not be competing with United come the end of the season but we are right now so I want the results that best suit us.

Can't agree. I thought that was a poor red card.

 

He went in feet first. 2 dirty tackles in a row and mouthed ofthe ref. Red card straight away. Deserved it fully. If you go in feet first you deserve a red, no questions about it in my opinion

United still look rattled. Liverpool still the better team, even with 10 players.

 

They could probably have done with a goal to show for it. I would imagine United will come out the 2nd half a lot better!

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!

Self defence if he just took the tackle he'd be in a hospital now, similar to Fellaini with the big Greek kopite.

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

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.

Everton would destroy both of these teams on this performance.

 

Proper crap match.

 

I agree, but fairly entertaining. Cause its quite scrappy.

 

Looking forward to City vs Arsenal, think its going to be an entertaining match. Hopefully with better quality tho.

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.

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 .
