  1. Past hour
  2. Looks like we have another 'Save Our Club' manager to go beside Pullis and 'Big Sam' Allardice, 'Roy of the Rovers' Hodgson, I quite like that guy and he did well at Palace when he was there at his age, I would love him to steady the ship at Vicarage Road and pull Watford to safety.
  3. While I think there is an argument for a rule allowing only one managerial change per season, Ranieri was quite a baffling one and not surprising he's failed and gone. I think there is a desperate hope that he can recapture that season at Leicester for any club that hire him but it's becoming increasingly obvious that that was a brilliant (well not for me, I support Spurs) one-off. A one-off he deserves full credit for. But the stars aligned, he and everyone else had the season of their life where they could do no wrong. The collapse the next season (no-one expected them to successfully defend their title but no-one expected them to be that bad either), the Fulham debacle and his nomadic wandering of the football world should really tell you something. What we have particularly learned, as well as it being a one-off at Leicester, that he cannot pick a struggling team up mid-season. Hodgson is the best appointment they can make. At times like this, if you're Watford, a ship-steadier is what you need. Whether that will be enough remains to be seen but he gives them the best chance.

  6. Crooks and Keys have this view of people like Kenwright as the good old English gent chairman, the local-boy-made-good, blue-blood-in-his-veins, dying-out-because-of-the-foreigners and regardless of whether their decisions have actually been any good, see it as a kind of betrayal from the fanbase that they could ever dare to even remotely criticize. See Keys really attack the people who flew the banner - it wasn't personally abusive, it simply expressed the opinion of whoever paid for it regarding Everton's future. I read Keys' blog (they can often be utterly hilarious at the sheer stupidity) and he has an utter pathological hatred and loathing of Benitez that goes way beyond personal and is obsessive and creepy. He works himself into a rage about what he's doing when he's out of the game, in China etc. I mean, Benitez deserved full criticism for his role at Everton, he did a bad job but Keys suggesting Kenwright should have come out publicly the day Benitez was hired and said he disagreed with it is laughable. He wasn't the right appointment but arguing that to undermine the new manager on his first day at the club by the chairman saying "I don't want him" is good for the club is embarrassing. I think he's bitter regarding Everton, despite claiming to love them, because his mate Gray is not particularly popular there despite being an Everton "legend". Although an Everton fan would know more about that than me. I get a bad feeling the club are going to fold to what Kia wants. I genuinely think they are in danger if Newcastle get in a couple of players they can easily afford in the last week and Hodgson (whom it looks like is coming in at Watford) can do his usual steadying of the ship.

    How do you save the games? I have played around 3 now and got a 100% but every time I complete the game it comes up as a first game played? I got today's in 2 and I am happy with that. Just screenshotted the game for today and added the correct games played.
  8. I'm not saying the kid is trash, but there was a comment that the video made him look brilliant. I just kind of hate that.
  9. Brits obsess with class like Yanks obsess with race. Mine came out as ‘middle class’ which is a load of shit because it was working class till I said I don’t walk or cycle anywhere because I can’t fucking do that because I’m in the USA and not only does the USA hate pedestrians and cyclists I’m surrounded by a half metre of fucking snow. Besides middle class doesn’t exist anymore. You have to be earning a fortune to be middle class these days
  10. Today
  11. True, but this is the second season now that he looks very good. 20 goals in 23 this season and 20 in 41 last, those are very good numbers. Haaland only had one and a bit seasons under his belt before Dortmund bought him.
  12. Yes!! I've just signed Haaland and overtaken Inga into first place in the league table standings! It doesn't get much better...
  13. The Stranger on Netflix, 8 episodes in total. Didn't fulfil the potential it built in the first 2 episodes - 7.8/10.
  14. I expected more from Senegal at this tournament. Senegal have not conceded a goal so far in this competition, but they've also only scored one goal so far. Defensively they look pretty solid but they are seemingly struggling to score goals. However, with a quality player like Mane up front for them, they should be scoring more goals. It will be intriguing to watch how they perform against a resurgent Cape Verde Islands side today, who are a very decent team themselves.
  15. Decent appointment to get them through to their next manager in the summer
  16. You could make a compilation of me playing football and I'd look like a god btw. Enough footage exists of most players to make them seem great.
  17. It's a direct quote from a newspaper i dont go on bluemoan, it's full of wums
  18. Halloween Kills - 5/10 Most of that score is because of how well done the flashback scenes were. I HATED the whole lynch mob plot though. Can’t say I’m at all interested in seeing the third. Face/Off - 2/10 I switched it off about and hour or so in. I know it’s mean to be over the top , but I couldn’t stand how over acted it was by both men. The pacing was terrible, the script was a joke and the action was forgettable. I really don’t understand the love this film gets from a lot of people. Fucking rubbish.

  21. Burnley have no midweek commitments so will probably be fine putting rearranged games in midweek later in the season. I'm surprised we're not playing Norwich this weekend to help avoid the congestion. I think I remember reading that if we progress in Europe and the FA Cup, we only have 2 free midweek options later to fulfil the postponed games (Everton, Chelsea, Norwich, Burnley). So I think somewhere along the line we'll have to play 3 games in a week like Man Utd did last season. Or sacrifice Europa Conference League which I don't think we should do.
  22. https://kotaku.com/esl-faceit-esports-public-investment-fund-saudi-arabia-1848413393 And they went and bought FaceIt too. Its a smart acquisition as they'll make a lot of money in the process, maybe not at first but eventually it will even out. Its going to be interesting to see how many people jump ship now that the Saudi's are the ones backing it.

  24. I'd never look down on anyone if I came into Millions. Remember your roots, I grew up in Wythenshawe, Manchester and its still where I consider home. The fact I've got a few quid in the bank to protect against unemployment doesn't make me middle class.
