Wait, so Liverpool in effect traded Torres for Andy Carroll+15 million pounds?

That's either the most ingenious or idiotic transfer I ever heard of.

Oh Arsenal, the first Premier League team to EVER throw away a 4-0 lead.

I'd still be laughing now if the South Wales Derby wasn't due to kick off in less than two hours and I'm bricking it.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

I just love when the mighty fall

Yesterday Bayern München, supposedly Germany's best team (and by statistics and won championships they are), lost 2:3 after leading 2:0 against a team that's threatened to be delegated to 2nd league by current standings.

The reason why i'm so full of joy is that the managers (and sometimes the players too) are so full of arrogance when it's going well for them when they start public flame wars just to intimidate their opposition.

It's sometimes like US presidential elections here in the 1st league.

They are having major problems now despite having a technically good team and a very good trainer yet they still fuck up now and then which gives me much fun.

Otherwise i don't really care about footbal but you can't read news on Friday and over the weekend without getting news about football too.

or another way of looking at it would be that Liverpool now have 2 forwards (Carroll and Suarez) who want to be at the club - instead of one that didn't.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Wow, does anything feel better than a derby win in your local rival's own backyard where you're comfortably the better team? I bet not! Cardiff's first win on Swansea turf in nearly 14 years! And what a beauty of a strike to win it!

Liverpool also took Chelsea apart - deserved winners there. Torres who?

That Munich story is also a great one - can't beat a big club fucking up like that!

Grats. Although I have to say, it's almost more satisfying to win a derby when your team has been clearly worse and just got lucky.

Hmm, I was recalling a Spurs Man City match where the same thing happened, but I suspect that was a cup game.

Irrespective of going down to 10 men and having two penalties against you, you should never throw away a 4 goal lead, especially not if you're a team with pretensions of winning the title.

IIRC, that Man City game was 3-0 wasn't it? Wasn't it 0-3 and then they went down to 10 men as well, and then they pulled it back and won 4-3?

^ Correct. Early 00s - 2003 I think, 3-0 at half-time in an FA Cup replay, think it was at the Lane.

Aha! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e58rdYk1rPE

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

England last night was ok, much better in 2nd half but still potentially crippling issues needs addressing...

Hart (7) - Two very smart saves but needs to marshal his defence better and not playing at the same level as earlier into the season.

Johnson (6) - If he had not been involved in the 2nd goal, he would of gotten a 5 because he was caught half asleep several times. Martin Kelly and Micah Richards should be ahead of him for the squad IMO.

Terry (7) - Solid game though clearly prefers playing with Rio due to experience of partnership.

Dawson (6) - Got better as the game went but too eafer to commit himself leaving us open at times. Good enough for the squad but most likely not the starting 11.

Cole (7) - Was left 1 on 2 sometimes but still managed to play well overall. Needs to be more clincal going forward but nothing wrong with his defensive game after all these years.

Walcott (7) - We didn't get the ball to him enough but when we did, looked very dangerous. Best cap he's had for ages and its about time too.

Lampard (6) - Should not be in the squad when Gerrard is fit, pace gone and doesn't suit Capello deep midfield mentality

Wilshire (6) - His 1st touch and passing game is solid but is clearly not the holding player Fabio thinks. Wanted to get forward and Capello should let Stevie aging legs take the anchor role. Can be our Xavi if let loose

Milner (7) - Typcial hard working shift with some nice play dow nthe wings BUT a few times was too slow getting back, can't do that against Bale come March.

Rooney (6) - Some wonderful passing that Beckham would admire, especially his pass in the build up to the 1st goal. However simply plays TOO FAR AWAY FROM THE GOAL.

Bent (8) - Finally looks the part and not only scored but had a few other chances to add to his tally of 2 goals in 6 caps. Kept making runs and playing off the shoulder of the defence, thast what we need. Will probably start agaisnt Wales in March barring injury.

SUBS
Cahill (6) - Wasn't really troubled and had little to do but looked more composed than Dawson.

Young (7) - Best cap to date and took his goal really well.

Parker (7) - Played well though was helped by Denmark playing at a slower pace in the 2nd half. Still not go the legs at his age to play all the time.

Barry (6) - Did his normal job, nothing more nothing less

Downing (6) - Nothing special, nothing horrible - cameo cap nothing else.

Baines - N/A

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Manchester derby today and I have a feeling Utd might lose this one, their less than stellar form might be starting to catch up on them though I think they will still win the title and maybe the FA Cup too.

My mighty Forest have QPR and its on telly too but away at their ground, I think might prove too much for us. However if we win with our games in hand then the Championship Title and promotion is ours to lose.

we have only 18 fit players at moment so I would wish Billy would stop buying Strikers.

Yeah Billy's like that. In our last promotion season we were top of the table just after Christmas but injuries were thinning our squad out. Needed replacements all over the place but Billy just brought in a load of midfielders which was really the one area where we didn't need anyone! Ended up unbalancing the team and we clung on to third and went up in the playoffs.

Leicester at home for us, on the telly, hence que defeat.
