^ Was he? All I remember about Reyes is how awful a diver and actor he was.

My most enduring memory was in one match, possibly CL, where he was tackled around the penalty area, flew off the pitch, was absolutely fine but managed to roll all the way back onto the pitch so he could playact injury to get the ref's attention.

Everton v Standard Liege

No massive concerns for British clubs all round really - except Everton, who've got one of those ties that makes me wonder if it really is a fixed draw I'm sure King Louis will despatch them with ease...
Standard must batter them, or we'll never hear the end of it! If the bitters lose, no doubt they'll blame us somehow. They usually do.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

I really enjoyed the Super Cup - Scholes' goal was the icing And I wanted United to win hahaha glorified friendly indeed.

I like that CC draw too, although ti would be great if a season could go by without United getting Boro and Arsenal getting Sheff U!

Blimey, Joey Barton comes on for five minutes and gets booed off the pitch. Within seconds he'd tried to hack down Samir Nasri. Nasri had a little go back and Barton made the most out of it.

Then he got nutmegged by Gael Clichy.

Nobody shook his hand at the end either. He got a chorus of "You're supposed to be in jail" from the fans too.

TBH to the little dogshit that is Barton, he won the ball fairly and then Nasri did a clear off the ball challenge, which in a more high profile game might of landed him in deep water just because it was way way of the ball and he mean't it.

But it was funny to watch .

Arsenal were back to there normal level though on a small bright note for ENG, Owen while he only had 2 chances took them well (so looked sharp at least) and was unlucky that his own striker was a idiot and blocked one of them.

^All bets are off as far as Barton is concerned. He should count himself lucky that two of the players up in the stands (Mikael Silvestre and Patrick Vieira) weren't playing - they're both good friends with Ousmane Dabo.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

I would just like to point out who are currantly sitting proudly on top of the SPL tonight, why it's my Kilmarnock!
4 games played, 10 pts, and not a goal conceded!

Yes, it will probably only be for 24hrs until the Old Firm game tomorrow, and indeed, we are more likely to be fighting of relegation than challenging for Europe come May. But BRG cares not! Killie are top and all should know it!

Danny Invincibile - has there been a better name, ever?

I defy anyone to prove me wrong.

I always found Danny Higginbottom and Wanger Love to be quite funny names .

Fabio not to bright Capello names his 1st ENG squad for the World Cup Q/F's and with no Gerrard or Hargreaves you would be forgiven to think whats the point but you never know, Croatia might forget how to play football for at least 10 minutes .

Here is what I would pick personally but I know that Capello will choose something different. If you were ENG manager who would YOU pick for your 23 man squad....

Known injured players...(Gerrard, Hargreaves)

MY 23 man ENG Squad...

GK - James, Kirkland, Robinson
RB - Richards, Brown
CB - Terry, Ferdinand, Woodgate, King
LB - A.Cole, Shorey
RM - Beckham, Bentley
CM - Lampard, Barry, Jenas, Huddlestone
LM - J.Cole, Young
FW- Owen, Rooney, Crouch, Defoe

Personally I would play a weaker team against Andorra in a 4-4-2 system...

------------------James--------------------
Brown---Ferdinand---Woodgate---Shorey
Bentley----Jenas-----Lampard---Young
--------------Rooney Owen-----------------

However against Croatia since we lack quality, I would go for numbers and play 4-5-1, which is the reason I left Heskey out of squad.

------------------James---------------
Richards---Ferdinand----Terry----A.Cole
----------------- Barry----------------
Beckham---Jenas------Lampard---J.Cole
-----------------Owen----------------

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Any squad containing Beckham would be an abberation. In light of the last trip to Croatia, a Neville/Robinson combo should probably be avoided at all costs.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

I edited my squad to include Shorey since he has overcame his injury and played today for 65-70 mins, played good as well.

Capello should name his squad within the next hour
