  1. I got to be totally honest here, forget all his mistakes a minute, I'm actually glad for his mental health and wellness he's gone and out that situation. You could see him having a breakdown which could be potentially fatal at his age. When you have a constant barrage of abuse, majority of people showing such hate towards you, reading negative words about you in the media everyday, being hounded everywhere you go....I think human empathy kicks in. All that pressure isn't healthy for anyone, especially not his age. Yeah he's Ex-Scum, yeah he's done a poor job and Ashley should have booted him a lot earlier but the bloke is fucking human, and been a defensive shield for Ashley, the real cunt in all this. You'd think he'd run over a litter of puppies some of the things said about him. All rivalries aside, fan or not a fan of him, go take a break Steve. Go on a couple nice holidays in the sun and spend time with your family and loved ones. If anyone needed it, its you.

  5. We had someone in our group who was exactly the same... back in my youthful days about 5 or 6 of us used to get up to London on a Friday night and spend the night on pub crawls and what not and for the most part he was ok but once he had a few beers in him he used to get a bit silly and one night when we were coming back from a night out we were sitting on the platform at Waterloo waiting for our train to pull in and a couple of platforms over was a train waiting to pull out with a bloke leaning out the window and our mate couldn't help himself as per usual and started mouthing off at this bloke for no reason... We were all telling him to shut the fuck up and this bloke turns to the inside of the carriage and next thing you know there are about 20 blokes all up at the windows, built like brick shithouses as well, I think they might have been rugby players they were that stocky.. anyway we tried to gag our mate who was shouting even more abuse and they started opening the doors to get out but thankfully their train started to pull out.. We were so worried about it that as we went into each station before our stop we were ducking down near the floor in case they had got off the next stop and wanted to pursue it with us... funny thinking back but what a pain in the arse he was sometimes.. I did have another mate a good few years later that was exactly the same, great bloke but once them beers were flowing any excuse for a row and he would be there.. You just always knew at some point in the evening you would be playing either peacemaker or getting in a ruck..

  9. RESULTS - MIDWEEK I forgot to do a midweek results post so I've separated the two lots of results up. From the midweek games, everyone who played won their game except for myself who only managed a draw. - @Khan of TF365 extended his unbeaten run to 5 games with Nottingham Forest - Another win for Salzburg was good news in the Champions League for @ROBBIEFC - @Stan and @RandoEFC enjoyed a 4-0 win against Malmo - @Lucas stayed with Rennes as they won 2-1 in the Europa Conference League. - Marseille drew 0-0 so I decided to flip sides to Lazio for the weekend games. RESULTS - WEEKEND - Hertha BSC faced Monchengladbach which pitted @Coma, @Bluewolf, @Toinho and @CaaC (John) against @Dr. Gonzo and it was the home side who prevailed meaning 4 becomes 5 at Hertha! - @nudge chose to move to Stuttgart who drew so now another choice - Stuttgart or Union Berlin? - 16 points from 8 games with Nurnberg now for @Tommy as he attempts to move away from the bottom two - It's back to Wurzburger Kickers for @Rucksackfranzose, @Viva la FCB and @Eco as Turkgucu let them down - @Mel81x loses top spot as Portimonense lose out to Estoril, but they face Benfica again next... - @Khan of TF365 couldn't extend his unbeaten run to 6 with Nottingham Forest but the silver lining is they were beaten by Fulham so he returns back to his beloved team - @ROBBIEFC won again too so 3 more points to keep the challenge on in the top half of the table - 7 Chelsea goals were enough to keep @RandoEFC and @Stan at Chelsea - I swapped to Lazio and now I move to Verona after losing 4-1 and remaining at the bottom of the table! - @Lucas won again with Rennes Table Fixtures

  10. Neville was embarrassing. He was contradicting himself like crazy, constantly saying that this had been coming for a long time but he really liked the way the team had progressed over the last couple of years. When Carragher, who was making sense, called him on it and asked what he meant, he got himself in flustered knots. Van Gaal and Mourinho, as stated a few posts up, were diminished when they got to United and it would not be the same if they hired Pochettino or Conte. It seems like Solskjaer and a fair few United ex pros have taken complete leave of what made them such winners during their careers and are too obsessed with some abstract about "values" (they went out of top level football a long time ago) rather than actually being successful. I mean, Abramovich takes a lot of shit but he realized there were major issues with Lampard, made the tough call, got in a world class manager and now Chelsea are CL winners and probable title favourites. United are so married to the concept that every manager must be the "next Ferguson" (who was completely unique) that they have forgotten what sustained success actually is.

  13. I really think it is a reasonable professional expectation that anyone in an executive position in football should know who all of the managers are in the top few leagues are. I could probably name a fair chunk of them, and I have a full time job which isn't to do with football. It is incredible how low the standards are in an industry which is so over-saturated with cash.

  16. Whilst it's not nice to see somebody recieve the level of abuse he did at times, Steve Bruce knew exactly what he was walking in to and the level of payoff he would receive if it didn't work out. It's not like he showed the likes of Sheffield United, Huddersfield Town, Crystal Palace, Birmingham City, Wigan Athletic, Hull City or Sheffield Wednesday when he walked out on them either. For his physical health and mental wellbeing a long break is possibly best but let's not all get the tissues out so quickly for him.

  20. Results 3 out of the 9 games ended in draws so no points gained or lost from those. Only one game where one player took on the rest and it was one of those that ended in a draw. Everybody chose PSG to beat Angers and received 1 point. Everybody also backed Inter to beat Lazio but that one didn't work out, with us all losing 2 points. The highest rewarding game was Swansea v Cardiff which saw a swing of 3 goals in favour of Swansea. Table @Rucksackfranzose still leads whilst @Lucas is second, both scoring the most points of the round with 6 points alongside @Mel81x and @CaaC (John). @ROBBIEFC was the lowest scorer of the round and drops down to 4th place with a loss of 6 points. @nudge and @Eco earnt 2 points whilst the rest of the players, @DeadLinesman, @Stan, @Khan of TF365 and myself all failed to score or lose any points in total.

  22. It's one thing having had a traumatic personal experience with a vaccine in the past. It's quite another spreading deranged and baseless conspiracy theories on the internet. You might think you're having a laugh, I genuinely don't know, but when we're back up to 100-200 people dying a day in the country, many of them that would be surviving if they'd taken the vaccine and haven't, often because people like you are peddling nonsense like this on much bigger platforms than this one. Bad information is literally killing people and it isn't a laughing matter. You don't want to get vaccinated, that's fine, but what I don't understand is how anti-vaxxers are obsessed with the "I won't be told what to put in my body" line yet can't shut the fuck up trying to scare other people about what to put in their bodies. It's irresponsible and dangerous. The science speaks for itself. If you have good personal reasons to ignore the science and not get vaccinated then keep it personal, chance it yourself and let everyone else make the personal choice you claim to be such an advocate of. We've all heard you say your piece now. Why are you still going? What do you have to prove here? People on this forum have lost loved ones to this virus and your patter about the vaccine is so ill-informed that it's hard to take seriously and comes across as a wind-up. At some point you're going to seriously offend someone. Having a different opinion is fine but none of us need to be reminded of it every 5 minutes when it comes to sensitive topics like people's health.

  23. I watched your game earlier. You can only beat what's in front of you but I honestly thought I'd make a point to come on here and say how well Chelsea played today. You really played supurb. And I'll say this too. It could and should have been 9 or 10. Best all round I've seen you personally since the Arsenal away game. I had a funny feeling with Lukaku and Werner out today might be one of those frustrating days for you, stuttering to a 2-0 win because the players would take their foot of the gas. Fuck that. You set the tone early and I think that was down to Tuchel. He must have drummed it in that you had to win that game early doors and you were truly relentless. The pass and move was really sharp, great energy and drive by Kovacic today especially I thought in the middle of the park. I think credit also has to go for playing Thiago and Rudiger, two players that would keep the intensity of the team high from the back, not letting anyone rest on their laurels. I actually found it hard to fault anyone bar Havertz. He struggled to find space and I don't think his movement off the ball was great. On another day his performance might have frustrated a few but then again for me, he isn't a striker. Doesn't get in the box enough. Ironic that Broja scored his 2nd goal for Southampton today. On the face of it, he'd have been ideal in today's situation.

  29. This season’s push by Verstappen has given F1 one of its most enthralling title races in years. And yet Verstappen is a bit of a mystery in the U.S., in part because he’s chosen not to participate in the popular Netflix “Drive to Survive” docuseries that has captivated American racing fans. “I understand that it needs to be done to boost the popularity in America,” Verstappen told The Associated Press ahead of Sunday’s race. “But from my side as a driver, I don’t like being part of it.” Verstappen said when he participated in interviews in earlier seasons of the show, the quotes were later applied to situations he was not discussing and “they would fake a lot of stuff.” “They faked a few rivalries which don’t really exist,” he said. “So I decided to not be a part of it and did not give any more interviews after that because then there is nothing you can show. I am not really a dramatic show kind of person, I just want facts and real things to happen.” So are Verstappen and Hamilton even rivals at all? “Probably in the Netflix show we will be,” he said. “We one time bumped into each other walking, so probably that will be in there.” https://apnews.com/article/sports-austin-texas-north-america-formula-one-1d9773b69ee9bd62d47a27d81310549a

  31. It seems much easier to compare Benzema as they play the same spot but I havent watched Real enough in the last few years to really say much on that front. What I can offer about Lewy is not only are his numbers what they are its just how he scores. Take last weekend against Leverkussen as an example, he scored 2 in a 5-1 beat down. His first goal off a cross was a perfectly executed back heel flick. Second was a poachers toe poke in the box as it was bumbled accross the goal right into his path. Point is the guy scores all types of goals, he literally doesnt have a weakness. Headers, inside the box, outside the box, backheels, volleys, you name it hes scored it. These last two years in particular hes been nigh unplayable.

  33. Well, when we got promoted to 3.Liga the goal was to be promoted to 2.Liga within 5 years. Nobody will moan, if we succeed fulfilling that aim beforehand. Although we were expecting and expected by most experts to finish this season in the first third part of the table second spot is better than most of us thought we would do so far this sason. As for the vibe, all home matches sold out within the corona restrictions so far. And finally you're right, if BVB II finishes in one of the two direct promotion spots, the third placed team will be promoted directly and the fourth placed team will play the promotion play-offs, since 3.Liga is the highest level second teams can possibly reach. Oh I forgot: Under this scenario the fifth placed team will automatically qualify for next years DFB-Pokal, since second teams are banned from participating in it as well.

  39. Results - Gameweek One Casualties (13) A difficult opening round of fixtures is reflected in this week's set of Last Man Standing results as more than half of our entrants fall at the first hurdle. The victims began to fall as early as Friday as @CaaC (John)'s Koln were smashed 5-0 on their visit to Hoffenheim. @Rucksackfranzose was amongst the first to fall foul of this week's results, the only man to back Frankfurt ahead of their 1-2 defeat at home to Hertha Berlin. @Rick was also eliminated having backed Wolfsburg to win at Union Berlin, only for them to lose 2-0. @6666 was another one to plough a lonely, and ultimately unsuccessful, furrow, due to RB Leipzig being pegged back at Freiburg and only coming away with a draw. Borussia Monchengladbach were responsible for one of the larger LMS massacres in Saturday's final game, their failure to defeat Stuttgart at home spelling an early end to this round for no less than seven entrants - @Khan of TF365, @Tommy, @Redcanuck, @Dan, @...Dan, @nudge and @Viva la FCB. Sunday brought no respite for the TF365 Last Man Standing crew, as @Eco and @Pyfish saw their pick Augsburg stutter to yet another 1-1 draw against winless Arminia Bielefeld. Unlucky folks, you may be pointless in this round but there are other opportunities to come. See you in the next one! Survivors (11) Of the six Bundesliga sides who bagged three points this weekend, just two of them saw any backing from us this weekend. @ROBBIEFC was the only one to back Hoffenheim ahead of their emphatic 5-0 win on Friday night, and has the advantage of being the only one to progress with a Dortmund chip still to play at a later date. Erling Haaland's brace was the key factor in his side's 3-1 win over Mainz on Saturday, and it was Dortmund that carried the other 10 survivors into Gameweek 2, including the top three from the previous round - @Michael, @Storts, @Bluewolf, @RandoEFC, @DeadLinesman, @Stan, @The Palace Fan, @Mel81x, @Whiskey and @Lucas. Congratulations to all for making progress and getting on the board for this round. Please read ahead for the Gameweek 2 Preview. Preview - Gameweek Two Below is the current Bundesliga table along with the next set of fixtures. Remember not to pick the same team again! My pick for Gameweek 2 is RB Leipzig. Good luck!

  40. RESULTS The international break meant we had to wait a while for our fixtures but here we are, and we have a change in leader! - Last round's leaders @Coma, @Bluewolf and @Toinho (grouped with @CaaC (John) further down the table), lost their game so are on the move again to Hertha Berlin. - It meant that @Mel81x had a chance to leapfrog them and go top of the table, which they did with a win with Portimonense. - Further down the leagues in Germany, it wasn't @Rucksackfranzose, @Viva la FCB and @Eco's day as Wehen lost out to Turkgucu Munchen! - A change in clubs again for @Stan and @RandoEFC too as Chelsea is their new destination after they beat Brentford. - A couple of draws so @ROBBIEFC can choose Altach or Salzburg - The other draw came for Monchengladbach so @nudge and @Dr. Gonzo can move to Stuttgart or stay with Monchengladbach who play against Hertha next time out. - @Khan of TF365 continued with winning ways with Nottingham Forest, as did @Tommy at Nurnberg - In France, Lorient lost so I stay bottom but move to Marseille, and @Lucas won with Rennes.
