  1. Shaw has come a long, long way through much adversity - hats off to him!
  2. Took the foot off the gas a bit.
  3. I can happily get behind Scotland and both the Ireland sides, but never ever Wales.
  4. Vlad will be sending his team to the salt mines of Siberia at this rate.
  5. 5 Live this morning made me think I had missed a late 2-goal flourish from the Taffs.
  6. Why do I get excited every time just to end up watching the same dross and mediocre performances by players who are performing well for their clubs week in, week out? It never changes. Southgate perfectly encapsulates the emasculated nature of 21st century football.
  7. Long: It was predictable that his physical type of play and hence form was at risk of imminent, permanent collapse and hence why the long contract extension seemed like madness. Males lose their fast twitch fibres significantly from the age of circa 32 which is why you hear their "legs have gone" and in general you don't see explosive athletes at the top level much beyond 34/35 (unless they use anabolic drugs). Endurance athletes can go on further into older years, and technical skills can be retained. Hence Ronaldo's subtle positional changing as he enters the autumn of his career.

When they started, the footballers clearly thought it seemed like a good thing to do and I am sure, like many, they were ignorant of the associations with BLM and their radical and racist political agenda. A week of the kneeling would have got the message across in a powerful, dignified manner.

The kneelers and their supporte
  9. Interesting to observe that the abusive language, intolerance and name-calling on this thread comes almost exclusively from the #bekind, pro-BLM and kneeling types.
  10. Never mind padded seats for prawn sandwiches and fogies, they need to reduce the prices dramatically behind the goals and if safe standing won’t be allowed then have long benches (think Dell side stands before seating proper came in) and significantly increase the fan density and capacity of those areas, attracting back the 15-25 year old fans along with some soul and atmosphere.
  11. Liverpool are proper crap, mid-table outfit.
  12. Liverpool gone up a gear. We are leaving too much space for them just outside the 18 yard box.
