  1. @LucasAs I've been saying, Bielsa is nothing more than Ian Holloway on a bucket.
  2. I have had the privilege of watching him live and he spent the game being shut out by Danny Granville.
  3. It is what it is. We've been progressive, we've had our chances, we've just lost to a better team.
  4. I know it's very early, but this new Wigan team seem to have gelled very quickly and Lee Johnson has been able to mould Sunderland in to a team he's happy with. That last spot could be a lottery given there's about ten teams who thought they had a realistic chance of automatic promotion and none of them are vying a playoff spot at present. Could be a very interesting season in League One that's proving to be more difficult to get out of than The Championship in recent seasons.
  5. Man City's average attendance didn’t drop below 26,500 between 1997-2000 when they were in the second and third tier which is extremely good. Have to feel for those fans at times like this.
  6. The last three fixtures against Liverpool have been extremely underwhelming so I'm expecting a massive improvement in that regard.
  7. Twitter's outraged again. This time over "The Plane Ride From Hell", you know, that thing that happened almost 20 years ago which got settled out of court. All of this woke and cancel culture in the Wrestling Twitter community feels so fake at times.
  8. God knows what ideas Vince Russo would have pitched to him in the alleged "golden years" of TNA.
  9. Given CM Punk hasnt wrestled since January 2014 before arriving in AEW, I don't think it's in anybody interest to throw him straight in to the main event.
  10. Huge relief. They seem to be getting along just fine.
  11. Steve Cooper would make most sense given the direction the recruitment team want to take the club but id rather he didn't as the job seems like a poison chalice for anybody willing to take it over. You look at the names of managers that have been there in the last ten years and its a "who's who" of proven managers that have failed and had reputations damaged significantly as a consequence. I think the most appropriate use for the new recruitment team would be looking Overseas for a young manager who encourages a forward thinking style of football as the DOF repeatedly did at Barnsley successfully.
  12. By the time he's 18 Brian will hopefully be running the firm so he can show him the way.
  13. Any club that actively seeked and are still actively seeking the formation of a super league because they knowingly and irresponsibly ruined there own clubs finances and are now scared of competition. I look forward to seeing these fragile egos that run these clubs crumble over the next couple of years as there legacy gets ruined in the eyes of the idiots that still follow there every word as if they're a cult following a chosen leader. A tier below these ignorant skidmarks are those clubs who voted in favour of this new Champions League format which rewards history because sides like Arsenal and Juventus are incapable of creating a structure that can beat progressive forward-thinking set ups at clubs like Atalanta and Leicester City despite having a ridiculous financial advantage. Its Atalanta and Leicester now, it would be the likes of Sassualo and Aston Villa shortly after. The heart beat that makes football such a beautiful and captivating sport to follow is competition. I have tried to get in to American sports before our baby arrived as something to watch at stupid times in the morning and have come to the conclusion they all fucking suck. In Basketball Utah Jazz won 52 of 72 matches last season and finished top of the Western Conferance. None of that mattered though because the top eight teams in the Western Conferance have to play each other in a playoff anyway. What was the fucking point in the first 72 matches? At least the English football pyramid there is a sense that almost every match in a football season matters. Any fucker that wants to move away from the competitive aspect of this sport is far worse than an irritating fan base or a team full of detestable players.
  14. Late Saturday night my partners waters broke. She blames me creating a party atmosphere after Odsonne Edouard's debut. Anyway the waters broke but my partner never went in to labour. They gave her Oxytocin Monday afternoon which led to abnormally painful contractions. She was in the very small number of people that Epidurals have zero effect on. After 13 hours of being witness to what I can only describe as a live exorcism she had just dilated 3 centimetres as the baby wouldn't put his head in the engaged position and he was now very distressed. The doctors called for an emergency C-Section and thankfully that's where our luck changed. The spinal worked on my partner and Noah entered the world at 0718 weighing 6.7lbs. Him and mother have been doing very well and they're hopeful they'll be released tomorrow.
  15. It's been over since January and he's done nothing since.
  16. That's a fair point.
  17. Spot on. Tony Khan has Meltzer, Alvarez, LaGreca and all those losers in his pocket but they're too excited to recognise it.
  18. With respect to those guys, WWE are looking to produce stars that are far bigger than anybody NXT have produced since 2016.
