  3. This one is a bit special. Usually, staff would hold a vote towards the end of the month for the best 3 members, and the member with the highest amount of votes is crowned MOTM. This month, we're doing something a bit different. Earlier this month there was some unexpected and unforeseen downtime thanks to some hackers on the server we're on. While this was temporary, it was only that because of one person that carried out a hell of a lot of work in the background to retain some sense of normality to the site. It's perhaps underestimated just how much needs to be done behind the scenes to get a forum functional, not least this one with how fresh it looks compared to some other football forums on the Internet. As a result, instead of the usual 'top 3' members, us as staff have decided to honour this month to @Rab . Even when the old site became unworkable, thanks to him we now have this site, and thanks again for getting it back up and running. An honorary Member of the Month which I'm sure we can all agree is fully deserved and well-warranted Rab didn't want to give us a celebration video, but little did he know we already had one. Also, in 2nd place was his dog, Whisky, for no doubt being the real brains behind everything and not just moral support Of course to all other members, keep up the good contributions and roll on the new football season!

  5. You can't "train" what Sancho and Saka had to do. I understand picking the order up to a point, but once Rashford missed, everything changed. The Saka pen especially. It's not a talented cocky young lad hammering them in top bins after training, it's a 19 year old kid with the weight of a nation and a world class GK in front of him. That penalty was about nerve, not ability, and England got it dead wrong.

  14. No need for this as it never helps but @ASF if you're going to believe a YouTube video about the knee stuff over the players and manager saying repeatedly what the point of it is you're basically disagreeing with it for made up reasons. The video you've posted is by a guy called Paul Joseph Watson. A quick look at his Twitter feed... ... reveals him as someone who feels more upset about people showing solidarity to Marcus Rashford getting abused online, than he is about the racism itself. In fact he appears to spend so much time tweeting each day complaining about masks and denying the existence of racism in the UK that I'm surprised he's got time to make a video. I mean how stupid is this guy that he blames the actual racist graffiti on the mural in Manchester on social media accounts in Asia? Absolutely desperate stuff. Why do people find it so much easier to believe that a bunch of multi millionaire footballers who see their team mates get racially abused on a regular basis, are secretly conspiring with the Marxist BLM defund the police group than they are to make a simple gesture in solidarity? Paul Joseph Watson has probably never met a single one of these players. Is he really better qualified than them to explain why they're making the gesture? This isn't a matter of opinion, the answer is no. Come on mate. It's tempting to think this and I did for a while. It remains true that the gesture alone is only a gesture but they've been vindicated in continuing to do it. See the conversations that have occurred around these issues over the past months. See the polling that says the majority of English football fans support the gesture even in the face of all the bed wetting from the Murdochian type newspaper columnists and and Paul Joseph Watson types tweeting from their Mummy's basement. See the way this England team mobilised the decent people of this country to rally around the lads who were racially abused by a dumb minority over the past few days. See the way the juvenile booing at the gesture reduced throughout the tournament. Despite all of this, action is needed to combat racism, not just a gesture, but it's hard to argue that the protest itself hasn't had some positive impact over the last few weeks.

  15. Marcus Rashford is an impressive human being. Everything I've heard, read and seen of him (off the pitch at least) is pure class.

  18. Much of England will continue to write-off penalties as this mystical curse they have, and won't connect the dots with the fact that they hide all their experienced players and turn the whole team upside down about 10 seconds before they start. "It's a lottery". Tell Italy that.

  23. England was the better team and deserved to go through, but nevertheless, it's a pity to see bad referee decisions essentially deciding the outcome of the match. Even more so when VAR is a thing.

  29. I´m currently writing a novel. I have already around 100 pages, it´s a historical fiction novel, set in Rio de Janeiro during the Getúlio Vargas dictatorship. It´s written in portuguese. I´ve always wanted to do it, started multiple times but always gave up due to insecurity. This time around though, I´m taking it to the end.

  32. @Tommy @Coma @Eco @Dr. Gonzo @Mel81x @Batard According to this it looks like Viacenza and Sassulo are exempt because it only applies if green is the dominant colour, like Lazio's away kit. Sassuolo wear black shorts and socks so it wouldn't matter to them. The article in OP is sensationalist. https://www.calcioefinanza.it/2021/07/15/serie-dal-2022-23-vietate-le-divise-di-colore-verde/

  36. ROUND 7 REGULAR STANDINGS. The table after the final. Thankfully only @Dan predicted a draw so outscored everyone; it also meant I finished top and no-one was able to pip me to the post! Very close in the end with @Redcanuck, @Viva la FCB, @Tommy, @Lucas, @MUFC & @DeadLinesman all within 3 points of the lead. Now, for the table after the BONUS ROUND predictions have been taken in to account. Firstly, a list of which teams finished where in group stage, tournament winner and which player was top-goalscorer. Group Standings Group A - Italy, Wales, Switzerland Group B - Belgium, Denmark Group C - Netherlands, Austria, Ukraine Group D - England, Croatia, Czech Republic Group E - Sweden, Spain Group F - France, Germany, Portugal Tournament Winner - Italy Runner-up - England Top Goalscorer Patrick Schick / Cristiano Ronaldo - 5 Lukaku, Benzema, Kane, Forsberg - 4 Dolberg, Sterling, Lewandowski, Morata, Shaqiri, Wijnaldum, Seferovic - 3 The table below is after the Bonus Round points have been allocated. @JoshBRFC's predictions gained him a mammoth 70 points and shot him straight up to top spot! @Redcanuck was the definition of consistent as he remained in 2nd place despite all the movement around him. @Tommy takes bronze for finishing 3rd. Special shout for @Devil for going from 23rd all the way up to 8th! Thank you everyone for taking part! The tournament itself was very entertaining; thanks to all of you who predicted all the way through. A summary of the winners... Euro Prediction League Regular Standings - Stan Euro Prediction League After Bonus Round - @JoshBRFC Euro Prediction League Cup Winner - @Lucas

  40. I'm not even a massive England fan, I'm more along for the ride than anything, but it is funny how upset people are getting about them having some success. 55 years since the last major final, it's not like dues haven't been paid. Anyone can see that Italy and England have been the best and most consistent teams in the tournament. It's the right final, and may the best team win.
