  1. Past hour
  2. VAR - yes or no?

    It's been used in the Australia league this year and it's been an absolute disaster. We keep hearing it's only to be used to clear up "obvious errors" but week after week we're seeing VARs sticking their nose into incidents they're not supposed to and quite frankly making just as many baffling mistakes as on-field referees. Be careful what you wish for.
  3. Boxing

    Decent fight, the lack of game plan from Eubank was shocking; Groves dominated and deserved the win. He was 4/1 to win on points, should have put some money on. As for Junior, he really needs to get a trainer in. Why is Ronnie Davies just being a water carrier?

  5. What Are You Listening To?

    This blows me away
  6. Yesterday
  7. 1-1 would be a great result. I'd like us to be brave and go for some away goals, as they don't travel very well. A 2-2 would be absolutely perfect. Then all we need is a 1-0 or 1-1 at home. Keep it tight.
  8. I think the league standings don't have much meaning here, at least not without context. One more year a team with a lot of new pieces that every year takes a lot of time to start functioning; weren't playing well for a long time, had their previous manager sacked, and have been with the new manager for not too long. They are also a team that is very different in league competition and cup competitions; for example, they have knocked Atletico out of the cup and are in the final. Except for last year, they've been awesome at knockouts in Europe. It is also a team that is very different when they play against a smaller team in the league, or when they play against a big team. They always compete vs every big team in Spain. And the Pizjuán is a very, very complicated place to play in for everyone. Liverpool started 0-3 after a pathetic start by Sevilla, but it ended 3-3. They are going to win us in intensity and desire, there's no doubt about that; just playing at home, in the CL and against a big, big team gives them that edge, it always does. The stadium will be amazing, one of the best atmosphere's you can get anywhere, pitch is usually not too perfect, and they love to make the matches extremely intense in every sense at their place. I would gladly sign for us to get a 1-1 there right now. Specially if Banega and Muriel are back, as they are 85% sure to be. Joaquin Correa is a doubt, and it's a very important player, but a piece they can more easily replace. They have Sarabia who's red hot and who is playing great and given confidence (which he needed) finally by a manager. They have N'Zonzi getting back to his best, and Mudo Vazquez is finding form too lately. They are a bit suspect in the back, Lenglet and Mercado are likely going to play at CB, with Escudero in the left, and probably Navas (or Layun) in the right. Then they have various options and a diverse team from midfield on. I think they'll go for Pizarro and N'Zonzi in the middle, Banega a bit higher up, and then Sarabia, Mudito Vazquez and Muriel. Who could be in that stadium on Wednesday...
  9. You are such a miserable individual.
  10. Serie A Thread 17/18

    His dad was a decent player, played for Parma and La Viola back in the 90s. He was very good against Bologna in the derby dell'Appennino. He's pretty much nailed down a place this season.
  11. They have 39 points from 24 games in la liga with a negative goal difference. We should be winning this comfortably given our squad. But then again, it is us that we are talking about.
  12. VAR - yes or no?

    All I can I say, is this to cater for the upper middle to high class eastern fans,like every transfer is. Money has certainly come too light in football ,over the last 10/15 years. Why I say that is ,with no malice,football in the UK is ,or was for the low working class fan.,it's changing here also,and now we have quite a lot of working class ,middle to high class type of fan also,but in the middle east and even easter it takes money to indulge in football,and for the working class and middle to high class,the economy is good,so asides from booze and women,they need to impress their colleagues, what Football team they support, and which world class footballer plays for them, how much he cost more than others,Arsenal, Chelsea,Real,Barcelona obviously Us,and other teams also,are supported passionately there,and merchandise, advertising, and TV rights are sold for vast sums of money,this football interest easily quadruples the amount of money that is gambled.. This summer we will get a £200m player. How about sensors,on their heads ,and legs,that would stand out ,or /could trigger a light ,that can attest the player is offside,when replaying Btw..I'm not pissed off truly with Var, in time it will grow on me ..like it has in cricket.
  13. La Liga 2017/18.

    Betis are nuts. The 3 of the 4 highest scoring matches of the season feature them I think, so this was 100% coming. Don't think they'll sit back now tho. That's the good part. They never do.
  14. La Liga 2017/18.

    Fucking Ramos.
  15. Romelu Lukaku 2017/18

    So what you saying 😂
  16. VAR - yes or no?

    VAR is the only way forward and slowly with it improving and adapting to the game we will see its advantages. That being said the system in its current form should undergo many changes before being implemeted in all large competitions. It looked harsh yesterday but the correct decision was made ultimately.
  17. La Liga 2017/18.

    First 15 minutes are going to be key now. Let's hope Betis don't concede.
  18. La Liga 2017/18.

    Wouldn’t be surprised if Leganés beat them on Wednesday too.
  19. La Liga 2017/18.

    I'd love to see them finish 5th. Ahahahaha. It's going to be a tough second half though, because Betis and Setien in particular have a problem; they play the same no matter if they're 2-1 up or 4-0 down. They will continue exposing themselves and trying to have the ball and create a lot with it, even if it means sacrificing a bit more in defense. Some of us (United fans) almost begging the manager not to look at the scoreboard at all times, and some others begging their manager to take into account they are winning and don't be that crazy. Love to see them play, though. He made miracles with Las Palmas. He's a great manager, and a top guy too.
  20. The FA Cup thread

    Apparently the VAR contractor supplied BT Sport with the wrong graphic... http://metro.co.uk/2018/02/18/hawkeye-apologise-juan-mata-offside-gaffe-var-replay-manchester-united-win-7323047/amp/?ito=amp-trending2 😳
  21. La Liga 2017/18.

    Real are so bad. They have nothing to gain here, so hopefully Betis get the job done. Would love to see Real finish 4th.
  22. La Liga 2017/18.

    LOREN MORON. What a lad. Playing in my division until 2 weeks ago, had scored 16 until Christmas for Betis B in the division, was given his debut as a starter two weeks ago and scored two the first day; was given another chance last week after his debut brace, and scored again. Today he's playing against Madrid with the confidence of someone that's been there 3 years already. Almost scored too. What a guy, making us all proud! ahahhaa. Also, Joaquín and Boudebouz playing like angels tonight. Joaquín, apart from being the nicest and funniest character in the history of football and deserving a statue just for that is tremendously good at football. What a monster. What a nice team Betis are under Setién. And what a mistake Athletic made appointing Ziganda instead of him. Unforgivable.
  23. VAR - yes or no?

    Offside ,has not been a problem throughout football. .it's the penalty decisions that kill you,the vital corner given that should not have been,or not given when it should have been...the 2nd yellow not given when it should be,the list is endless. .if your trying to fix one problem ,then fix the lot, if not..then leave it be.
  24. Phil Jones 2017/18

    We need to get rid of him. Liability because of injuries. He gets paid a good chunk of the season just for recovering from his injuries. Maybe in a buy one get one free deal with Smalling.
  25. The FA Cup thread

    Yid cunts.
  26. Snooker

    Snooker Grand Prix starts tomorrow, if anyone's interested. On ITV4 in the UK. Afternoon and night sessions.
  27. Tennis

    Federer wins Rotterdamn :) 97th tour title. 2nd placed behind Jimmy Connors (109😮).
  28. The FA Cup thread

    But they've already shown the line that BT sport used which was much clearer and cleaner so it wasn't them who put them up.
