General Weekend/Midweek Football


Recommended Posts

Just been looking around the forum to talk about the Chelsea game at the moment and I realised that there's no specific thread for other teams matches on the weekend. Of course there is the 'Longest Thread for Sport Talk' but seeing as that is full of other sports it's not that convinient for people that want to discuss whats going on during the weekend. I've started this thread so that people watching Sky Sports can discuss what is going on with other teams around us in the league and discuss the days events - hope you enjoy.

If the Mod/Admin don't like this thread then feel free to delete it.

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."

This was clever.

I hope this is the beginning of the end for QPR, don't like them at all. They played woefully yesterday and could have been rolled over by Accrington Stanley, they were terrible all over the pitch and if they play like that each week I can't see them surviving a second season.

 

Wigan meanwhile are still 2-0 down to Chelsea, Ivanovic scored first in the second minute (which Torres was apparantly fuming about) and Lampard put the visitors 2-0 up with a seventh minute penalty, it's all going wrong for the Latics and I have to say I'm not dissapointed.

45 minutes gone at the Etihad and Manchester City are only 1-0 up against newly promoted Southampton. They've missed a penalty too (taken by David Silva), have the Premeir League champions lost their swagger? I'd expect them to be at least 3-0 up by now and have this game in the bag, I just hope the Saints can hit back and snatch a point.

No team has any divine right to win a fixture. Annoys me sometimes when a big team with all star players are involved against lesser opposition and people expect a landslide victory. Adkins obviously went there today with a Moyes type strategy to frustrate the opposition and with prudent attitude. They're no pushovers. Manchester City don't have a license to just steamroller any opposition that gets in their way now.

 

I don't care much about any other fixtures this weekend, have lost significant interest in soccer the last few years. Setting sights on the game tomorrow night which hopefully should be a successful event. Any other games are out of mind more or less.

Well, Manchester City 3 Southampton 2 is the final score and this makes me happy. City conceding 2 goals to a piss poor team shows that they are not un-beatable andf by only winning it in the last 10 minutes shows that they can be beaten. I hope this season they crumble, crash and burn - fucking idiots.

Is it on Sky Sports?

 

Been begging my Dad to get Sky so I can watch the likes of El Classico. FC Barcelona may dive and cheat and times but you can't take away the quality that they posses. I'd say that they are the best team I have ever seen in my life.

How much is it for just one box? My Dad dosen't seem too keen on the idea because he dosen't think that he'd get value from money seeing as him and my Mum don't watch too much telly. As a student with no job money can be a bit of a pain to get, do you know how much it would cost to set up Sky with Sky Sports bundled in? I'm sure I heard somewhere it was around the £40-£50 mark.

Cheating is cheating, takes a whole lot away from Barca. TBH they bore me, some lovely goals but not enough entertainment.

yeah i watched all of that game this afternoon, and they don't seem to have anything upfront, Giroud doesn't look much, and i would never put Podolski anymore than a 'good' player, also their midfield seems like a collection rather than a unit, i agree i think they may struggle, it will be a big week for them this week

19 min: This is farcical. Tevez is released down the inside-right channel. Reina comes to claim, but can't get to the ball before the City man, who tinkles an effort past the keeper from an exceptionally tight angle. The ball looks like it's going in, and rolls right across the face of the goal, hitting the inside of the left-hand post - but coming back out, allowing Reina to claim. Why the nearby Balotelli didn't chase that in is anyone's guess. But the woodwork, so cruel to Liverpool last season, has done them an absurd favour there.

 

It does sound as if Liverpool are taking a beating, I tell you Sky Sports coulden't come any sooner! Can't wait to be able to watch these games in my room without having to follow the Telegraph online for whats going on.

Would it be too much to ask to suggest the author of this, changes the title from 'Todays Footy' to something more appropriate. Maybe one or two don't like the 'soccer' terminology but it would be far more appropriate. 'Todays Footy' FFS !

 

Apparently one or two shite supporters were quite pleased with this result, would have accepted it before start of play. I heard whispers of 'this can be our season' and 'we really can go places now', etc from some sources. Delusions of fucking grandeur quite possibly after getting a draw against the league champs and playing admittedly, quite well here and there, but if supporters think there's glory ahead on the basis of one decent result or endeavor against a side that demands it, then people should give their head a shake.

 

To anyone who seriously wanted a draw out of this, or even favored Liverpool for a result ahead of time, simply on the basis of any City animosity, I really don't know what you were thinking. I wanted Manchester City to win, bottom line. Is a draw game a good result for me?, maybe, as the shite didn't get their first victory, or any victory, but by god I would have much prefered it if they had lost, pure and simple. Sad day for these pages or any Everton fansite when our supporters decide they would rather enjoy a Shite win than the opposition involved.

You could ask....as long as you don't mind people asking you to change whatever they might find irritating about your posts/titlessmile.png .

Mentioned this in the shoutbox;

 

Watching the Champions League qualifiers penalty shootout and some tit has just tried to do a cheeky chip and its been caught by the goalkeeper. Now he's lost his team £15 million in winnings and looks a total bellend. The game was Udinese versus Braga and was level after two legs and 120 minutes, I don't feel any sympathy either as he was booed off the field, in games like that you should put your laces through it and smash the net.

 

Video below.

But (as posted elsewhere) Pirlo was proclaimed a genius for taking the exact same pen v England in the summer. 'Keeper moves you're a god, if he doesn't you're an arsehole.

I know, kinda' annoyed me that because IMO it was just lucky that Joe Hart dived, had he not done it would have been an easy save. In my opinion nobody should go for the chip, it's not needed and whilst it's 100% bullet-proof if the goalkeeper dives its not if he dosen't (and will make you look a right tit).

TBF Pirlo's was disguised well, I thought he was putting it into the bottom corner. The Maicosuel one is very poor.

Soccer ? dont%20know.gif

 

Why would you want either of our rivals to get 3 points? I'd rather they both got nothing if it was possible. I'd also prefer it if we played both right now, as I think we would beat them both at the moment,.
