Everything Mike Ashley says can be boiled down to: "I bought the club without doing proper due diligence. I'm an idiot."

Ah well, now Derby have finally won a league game again (yay) hopefully the media will leave us alone and just concentrate on Newcastle as the biggest joke club!
I understand that Barazite is looking pretty useful.

^ I've said it before; I'll say it again.

When Robert Earnshaw is the key to your club/country's success, you are fucked.

I want Nigel Clough who unlike CC has earn't his way through managment taking Burton up several leagues and was denied in the playoffs last season in the Conference.
Hands off. Eventually, when he's finished cutting his teeth in the lower leagues, Clough jr. will be returning to the family's spiritual home.

One of the reasons that I love the East Midlands derby, despite a fierce rivalry between the two clubs, at the heart of it all, there's a deep respect between the two clubs and their fans, largely down to one man, Brian Clough. He did more for East Midlands football than anyone else ever will.

You have to feel sorry for Leicester fans, he firmly planted Derby and Forest on the footballing map, establishing them as the pinnacle of East Midlands football. Leicester, have never been, and never will be, a major force in the East Midlands.

Re Barazite, a very useful player. I'd be very surprised if he doesn't start tomorrow night at Swansea. Think we've got him until Christmas, hopefully we'll be able to extend that until the end of the season.

Re Earnshaw, I never really thought that we got the best out of him TBH. I thought that he'd bang in a load of goals this season. Just keep him off the pop and out of the bookies and you'll be alright.....

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Interesting comments from Eric Gerets and Emilio Butragueno ahead of this season's opening CL matches;

http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/foot...pe/7614900.stm

http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/foot...pe/7615673.stm

Geret's opinion can be respected. Butragueno can just shut the fcuk up. Didn't hear him complaining when Real Madrid were assembling the Galacticos.

Someone from Real Madrid complaining about massive amounts of money in the game. I can barely see to type this through the tears of squealing laughter.

Real Madrid's alternative means of bringing investment into the club's coffers;

Could only sound dodgier if George Graham and Terry Venables brokered the deal, complete with brown paper envelopes stuffed full of cash!

What a joke. So it's ok when the Spanish and Italian clubs spend huge, but once England enters the fray, we've got "uncertainty" for the future and might have to look at altering the current system (ie salary cap).

The anti English bias in football get more prevalent as time goes by, I have to say.

Instead of "prevalent" I think I would say "obvious". It's always been there, as far as I can tell.

On a lighter note, Spurs lose again. Only team on one point rooted firmly to the bottom of the table.

Selling Defoe, Keane and Berbatov probably wasn't the best idea. Hindsight is 20/20!

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Speaking of English dominance of CL, it also comes ot having tactics and using them...

Rijkarrd complained how Utd were more defensive but they won, why because going gung ho with your players running out likk headless chickens for 180 mins does FUCK ALL

You should play to win and not to look good though having both is good.

4th ? They'll be lucky to be 4th from bottom by the end of the season.

Don't read too much into that, imo it's just the usual whining of football managers who couldn't keep up with the times. If the same thing were happening in Italy, they'd complain about that too.

I think Garak is talking more about FIFA and UEFA. They do tend to target us with rule changes more than anyone else. This 6+5 rule, for instance, is targeted squarely at Arsene Wenger's Arsenal. You'd think FIFA would have better things to do. We're hardly dominating English or European football, after all. We've won f*** all for years.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

And that's another erroneous assumption from you; neither FIFA nor UEFA are anti-English so much as they are pro-their bank accounts. All Blatter, Platini and their cronies are doing all day long is making up weird shit for the media to get excited over so noone looks into their corruption. And they've been doing that successfully for years.

Yeah, and their bank accounts are filled with money from major international tournaments. A strong, powerful Premier League endangers that.
