Other Games - 2020/2021


Recommended Posts

Do these fucking players know are all cooped up craving entertaining football?

Cannot remember watching so many dull games. Like Serie A in the 90s. Leeds excepted

Am I seeing things? Pogba blatantly kicked the back of his own calf there. 🤨

Never a penalty. What's the point of VAR? Just as biased as the ref on the field. The Sky justification was ridiculous. "The defender was too close to him so Pogba just hit the deck'

Why have they got halfwits discussing the VAR decision today. Everyone knows that it’s not where the foul starts, if it continues onto the line it’s a pen (as the ex professional ref explained to them). They must be deliberately trying to create controversy, because it’s fucking obvious. Why do they never ever say “ok fair enough I didn’t know that”, it’s always “it’s so confusing” when they’re wrong. Planks.

All commentators and pundits should be made to study for and pass a referee theory test in order to be allowed on air. It is their job to discuss incidents involving the rules of the sport... so they should prove they know the rules they are paid to discuss! 😎

For all of Leeds attempts to play football, they have the worst team organisation and defensive discipline I have seen at this level for a long, long time. They'll be ok, but they need to sort that out or they will never progress.

That’s a bit ott, but they should know the basics. They should also listen to the referee in the studio, not act puzzled and say they’re confused.

They are paid a decent wage, spending a few hours learning, revising the rules and passing a test isn't particularly OTT. Sunday league refs can do it.

I assume the tv payments have been reviewed since Covid but think Leeds would be the most popular pick for a TV game in ordinary circumstances. Yes gets bit yeah yeah when hearing pundits going on about them all the time but they play the game how fans like to watch it. Need more teams like this and Burnley can fck off

I agree with that.

Is there any basic set of requirements or process for appointing soccer pundits or is it all a carve up between Lineker and his mates MeMe Shearer & Ever-Wrong Wright? Don't get me started on Jermaine Jenas........ expletive deleted.

Sadly none of them seem to have even the faintest idea of English grammar, ostensibly their native language!

None of them speak as poorly as Clinton Morrison, how has the gibbering idiot got a job talking for a living, it’s like getting Stevie Wonder to comment on a painting competition.

At least we all know who finishes 20th this year.

Derby's total is genuinely at risk here. They are gone, I doubt we'll see them back at the top table for a very long time. Seasons like this can kill a club.

Great goal by Eze. That is exactly the kind of run we are crying out at Djenepo to do, we know he has it in him but he’s not really trying it anymore.

MLG notes: Yes I know Djenepo scored a great goal against Sheff Utd. Yes I know Sheff Utd are winless and not very good.

I think Sheffield Utd are definitely in a relegation scrap

They might be if they win their next four consecutive games. I just want them to score so that our proud record of being the only team who couldn’t so so against Palace stays intact.

West Brom look worse since Fat Sam has taken over. Certainties to go, 4–0 down now

The bottom 2 aren't putting up much of a fight, it'll be all over by the start of Feb down there.

I see Charlie Austin is still pretending to be a PL footballer.

Odds looking better for us if there's only 1 relegation spot left.

I reckon we'll be okay.

Always a pleasure to watch Charlie wandering around the pitch pointing to where other players should be , but more comfortable now he's the on field traffic warden at another club.

I did smile last night Big Sam said”...we don’t have a proven goal scorer up front..” 

How to motivate the pub level player 🙂

Amazed there wasn't more interest in Eze (maybe there was), he's a very talented young player and they paid a relatively decent price for him.  Great signing for them.

My Boss is a QPR season ticket holder (I was sat alongside him when Mane scored the winner at the death in our last game up there - thankfully as Mane got the ball he muttered "oh dear here we go" so I was able sit on my hands and curb my spontaneous glee - which was a good thing as the chap sitting behind me had eaten his family for breakfast that morning!!).......... Anyway I digress, he was so pleased last season when the transfer window shut and Eze was still with them. Like you I was amazed that he ended up at Palace as after a stuttering start to his QPR career, last season it seemed to click for him, and £17m could well turn out to be a bargain. I am quite surprised at how little Roy has used him, but then I guess there is quite a bit more to be squeezed out of £32m Benteke.

Spurs get to the Carabao Cup Final, they play us 3 days before it on the 22nd April having played Fulham on the 20th apparently. Might be good for us, that one.

Spurs most boring team in the premiership to watch

I seem to remember there was lots of interest but he didn't want to move away from London.

Has Ian Darke taken on the role of depressing the football watching nation? He, in his whiney- baby voice, likes to talk about covid for 20 minutes of every commentary. Step down mate, hide under your bed, do whatever you want, but stop spoiling one of the rare opportunities to escape from the shit that surrounds us. And as for Dean Ashton calling for the suspension of all football on TalkSPORT last night, go and do one. You live in a different world to the rest of us, those of us continuing to fight the good fight need an escape which football provides.

What if you support Sheffield United? ;) 

Not sure they are enjoying their escape!

Isn't Ian Darke a skate supporter?
