General Weekend/Midweek Football

Recommended Posts

Arsenal 0 - 1 Chelsea Free kick misses everyones heads and falls low, Torres puts his leg round Koscielny and scores a neat tap in.

Arsenal have been the better team, but it's been more open since the goal. Torres dilly dallying when he was one on one gives Koscielny time to get back, should have been 2-0.

Ahahahaha what a full blown tosser.

 

I watched the game and I can honestly say, there were minimal stoppages in the 2nd half, even to warrant the 4 minutes.

 

What he fails to note is that the game wasn't lost because of the additional 1/2 minutes, that weren't added to the end but rather the 37 minutes prior to that, after Kagawa's goal.

 

What a bitter c*nt.

That's Derby and Nottingham Forest isn't it. Think it all started back in the 1970s when Clough moved from the Baseball Ground to the City Ground, and won titles with both clubs, I don't believe there was any tangible trouble between clubs before that. People up there may think it's a lively event but I would say Cardiff/Swansea, Charlton/Crystal Palace or even Ipswich/Norwich would be a more lively affair. I hope Derby get a result maybe.

Well it was a 50/50 decision but I was pleased enough that County got a result, think I just prefer them over the two, and the Baseball Ground was a classic stadium if anybody had a visit before it was closed down and demolished in 1997

 

Tonight there will be Queens Park Rangers and West Ham in a west meets east all London fixture, I hope QPR get a success. Can't be impartial on this.

 

I think it's about to commence any moment now.

Never really had an issue with Queens Park Rangers and don't know where the animosity comes from.

 

Hughes was a very good player, but as a manager he's totally fucking inept. Merely joins a succession of former Manchester United players who tried their hand at management and failed dismally. Yes he wanted to stay involved after his retirement from playing, but some of these people need to be aware that management and playing are two totally different things, I don't think Hughes, as with a great many others, are too aware of this.

 

Genuine disappointment at tonights result, but no surprise maybe with the relevant people in charge. Could be a long season.

I would have thought maybe Wimbledon would have surpassed even that for a spell in the 1990s before they went under.

 

They shouldn't even be in the EPL this season, did you see the Blackpool play off game in May, the Oranges were all over them for long spells, should have been 2 or 3-0 ahead by the time the opposition got ahead, didn't deserve to lose, were by far the better side, and just couldn't finish off a load of chances that day and the London club took advantage to win the game. It was a few days after the plastics "won" the European Cup too. It was a week to forget and no mistake. I do hope they can be relegated again next year. No ill feelings from Elland Road 1980 or subsequent defeats at crucial stages, just not a club I have a lot of time for, but we all have our preferences don't we. Only above, there was some berating of QPR... Fair Enough.

I'm surprised they haven't won the European Cup again since 1997 the fine soccer they invariably play, and have been a very good side for the most part in recent years. I have nothing against City, and wouldn't favor either side tonight, so whoever got a result, I would feel totally indifferent.

 

Most people would be unaware that MCFC even won a Euro trophy in their history, a bit like Leeds even, but they took the European Cup Winners Cup back in around 1970 I think, not 100 per cent on that, but they did win it long before we ever managed. (1985)

Walcott has just put Arsenal ahead. It's been a pretty even game, I wouldn't be surprised if there is another goal.

 

 

Edit: and it's gone Arsenal's way. Carzola with a sexy curler away from the keeper.

Liverpool fans moaning about Stoke's style, because the lump it, foul, and hope for a lucky goal. Criticising Stoke is very short sighted of them, as I'm sure that was their tactics last year if you replace foul with cheat. Now it's poor mans tika-taka, cheat, and hope for a lucky goal.

Understatement of the year?

 

"Luis Suarez doesn't help himself sometimes. He drives into the Stoke box with the ball and looks to cut back, drawing an attempted tackle from Marc Wilson. There is no contact at all but Suarez throws himself theatrically to the ground. Nobody in the ground is fooled by that."

 

No yellow again though sadly rolleyes.gif.

I truthfully don't know of any other results this weekend apart from the Wigan Athletic fixture.

 

I don't know who Liverpool were playing, but it says 'got a draw' so I guess I can live with that, hopefully it was against someone they really should be beating. That's still only one win in all games thus far this season in the league by my math.

 

Keep it up Rogers.., first Benitez in the league, then Dalglish, and now this, and long may it continue. Bet they'll sneak off with the FA cup though..

Iniesta stuck out his leg to try and con his way for a pen. The commentator says "I've seen them given for less, both teams have now had genuine shouts for a pen". The whole game is a farce, there needs to be a complete overhaul, players, managers, refs, commentators, and most of all the FA's. All playing part in ruining the beautiful game.

 

Edit: Messi waving for Alonso to get sent off for a common foul, didn't deserve to score off the resulting fk.

Suarez's doesn't look to bad tonight, Bale with a criminal belly flop. Ref shit it and never gave the yellow. Really need bans imposed for these type of incidents.

 

But Bale didn't appeal, which kind of says "I was a twat and fell down thinking there may be contact but there wasn't and now I feel like a prat" while Suarez did a laughable dying sawn and then did appeal. Not sure why you think it doesn't look too bad...was completely hilarious for me.

They are both awful, just Bale dived before he got near the keeper rather than after making it a bit more blatant Not that Teeth doing the cockroach was acceptable more that Bale will take a share of the media coverage.

Walcott has just been clattered. It didn't seem a bad challenge at first IMO but after watching the replays it could have easily been a red card, the goalkeeper seemed to have no clue what he was doing and hit Walcott hard in the upper body to knock him down.

 

San Marino look shit too, could easily be about 8-0 tonight.

meant to say U21's sorry and basically England U21's scored late on, then the fans started throwing missle's and the serbian players kicked off, throwing punches and kicking (players and staff) and then danny rose got sent off, but just seemed to take it and as he was walking off the pitch, gestured to the fans a monkey signal and a thumbs up, as to say yeah okay kind of thing, then the England staff were in the tunnel and the serbian players and staff are clearly seen kicking the staff whilst in the tunnel, its pathetic.

 

AND NOW the England v Poland game might be called off for a water logged pitch when there is a fucking roof on the stadium!?! are you taking the micheal!?

It does Marco, and its been raining In Poland for a good 4-5 hours. Pathetic

 

They had some polish spokesperson on before and after being asked about the roof, she said "We knew there was going to be heavy rain, but we didn't know there was going to be a downpour"

I can't make what of that, has Rose fouled number 20 or is the commentator on about him taunting the crowd when referring to him getting booked for a foul? Fair enough if its the latter (that he taunted them back, not the booking for it).

I've lived in the Balkans for a few years and ignorance, corruption and racism are rife around here (thankfully the fact that most people are very genuine and kind makes up for that). Serbia seem to be particularly bad for it.

 

I hope UEFA through the book at them, although I won't be holding my breath.
