    What a final, dont think I have seen anything better in cricket (except the kolkata test, natwest final and SA chasing 434). Incredible match but felt very very sad for NZ, they didnt deserve to win at all. Congrats to England for fighting it till the last minute and a little bit of luck also helped them but very deserving overall. Im pretty sure majority of the cricket fans are more unhappy about NZ than happy about england, such a cruel match this was. NZ can keep their heads really high and be proud of what they have achieved, hopefully they win one soon.

    Maybe, but the general trend of the cricket has definitely moved to big hitting and bowlers dont get much help starting from the pitches to free hits to the number of overs in T20. But yeah agree, I havent watched much cricket in the last decade, just been following some test matches and the world cup thats about it so maybe Im missing something that you mentioned above.

    not really.... teams will value the wicket more, they wont try to hit every second ball for a boundary or sixer, granted the scoring would be lower but I believe that will be more balanced than what we see now with a scoring range of 160-200 in 20 overs... I thought the goal of the T20 is to shorten the playtime which Im fine with, but the current format gives batsmen too much advantage. Where is the value for the wicket? Every batsmen can more or less throw their bat at everything not worrying about getting out in most cases since there are so many more behind him that can come in and bat... EDIT: Also, the 4 wkt thing is an arbitrary number but you get the point im trying to say. Maybe 4 or 5 or 6 wkts for 20 overs is good but having 10 batsmen bat in 20 overs is giving the batting side way too much power in the match.

    Im fine with reducing the match time and making it a 20 over game but there should be an equal platform for the bowlers too... 50 overs cricket was good with 10 wickets, why dont they change the format to 20 overs and let each team play only 4 batsmen? Once a team is down 4 wkts means they are all out, otherwise its all smashing the sixers at an RPO of 10 and im with TAD on this. I stopped watching cricket after about 2009 or so, I dont follow much and the reason for that is T20 in general and IPL especially.
  5. Well thats probably the only reason I can think of too, that emery didnt like him. But im surprised Emery didnt give him much chance at all either, he is definitely not a bad player and can bench some of the midfielders Arsenal currently have.
  6. So Denis Suarez who was with Arsenal on loan (not sure how many games he even played and I dont remember seeing him play at all to be honest) was sold by Barcelona to Celta Vigo. Always liked him as a player when he played for Barcelona and probably was not at their level but why havent Arsenal given him enough chances to play while he was there on loan and why didnt they try for him for a permanent move?

  8. definitely can do a better job than courtois at Real
  9. How is that even called handball when the ball didnt hit his arm? It was only his chest/armpit where the ball hit, isnt it? Maybe the ball bounced off onto the arm after hitting his chest /pit but as per the rule if the ball bounces onto the arm its not a handball, atleast thats what I thought the rule was.
  10. Congrats to all the Liverpool fans here, every single one of you are great posters as I know. Im happy for Klopp and would have been very sad if they didnt win it so I can only imagine what you all could have gone through if you didnt win. Klopp is easily one of my favourite footballing personalities and I did mention that before too here so really puts a smile on my face to see him win the european cup. Spurs were proabably the better team that night and Liverpool didnt play their usual game but I can understand why Klopp did that after a series of losses in the finals. Spurs can only be proud of what they did this season and if they can keep Pochettino I can only see them getting better and stronger. And for the game, how was that a penalty? The rule is if the ball bounces onto the player's hands after it hits its body part its not a handball isnt it? Or did I miss anything there.

    If money was no object, what club would you buy?

    He isnt south Indian
  12. Yeah I get that mate, but my question is. Will there be special flights (additional flights) just to cater to the fans from london? Because, if thats not the case I dont see why it should be a problem as the airport is not seeing any additional flights on that weekend. Lets assume 200 flights fly into Baku every day, if there are no additional special flights for the final then there should be ~200 flights on that weekend too, how is that going to affect the airport handling capacity in this case? However, if its a norm in europe to have extra flights for events like this then that could be an issue for smaller cities/airports.
  13. Arent the number of flights that fly into the city are the same everyday? Or do they fly extra flights for events like this in europe? If they dont schedule extra flights, how does that matter to the city? There should be same number of people coming via airports just like any other day? isnt it
  14. who would be a tougher opponent in the finals... Frankfurt or Chelsea?
