Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

LOL Yeah, can't remember if it was me, or my brother, but one of us definitely had that one too.

Think my favourite one was the 90-91 away kit, the black and grey striped with red shorts - awesome!

Does look good....



Bit like an old Roma kit, especially with the red and orange.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

The Liverpool kit looks good though the Utd kit looks good and bad depending on the angle of the picture, can't work it out .

Roy or Woy as the dickheads of "The Sun" like to call him is picking his ENG squad on wednesday and am surprised he seems to be picking a final 23 man squad instead of a 28-30 man squad and then using the training camp + Norway match to skittle it down to 23 before UEFA's deadline. Who would be in your squads ?

My Squad
Hart
Green
Carson

Richards
Walker
Ferdinand
Jagielka
Cahill
Jones
Cole
Baines

Young
Lennon
Chamberlain
Parker (c)
Gerrard (vc)
Milner
Carrick
Lampard

Rooney
Welbeck
Sturridge
Walcott

Agree with most of that list.

Glen Johnson will undoubtedly go though, although personally I'd take Martin Kelly and then drop Richards.

I'd also drop Carrick and take Defoe.

Didn't they cause 'controversy' by consulting the wrong Hillsbrough Support Group or something, because they've moved the commemorative flames to the back (surrounding a 96 emblem now)?

Poor club can't win anything can they?

The United kit is hilariously bad.

Defoe lack of game time concerns me + Carrick's form since December and we need a good passer in the middle with Wilshere out.

I have a nasty feeling about Roy's picks to be.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Let's be fair, Roy's almost certainly going to start with Gerrard and Lampard, with Parker most likely holding behind them.

Given that, I'd rather take the additional striker. Defoe's not been playing much, so I'd play him the friendlies to start with. The problem without Defoe is that there's very little experience there. Plus Walcott's likely to start on the right of midfield.

Just wonder if Roy will be tempted to pick Carroll?

Parker, Gerrard and Carrick/Milner would be my preference over Lampard as I think it would increase England's tempo. The problem with the loss of Wilshere & Rodwell through injury is our midfield may end being as static as it was in 2010 especially if Barry is part of Roy's plans.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

I think the temptation to have Parker-Gerrard-Lampard will be far too great for Roy. I can see him playing 5 across the middle, with Young and Walcott playing out wide. Of course this leaves one striker up front with the hopes of either Gerrard or Lampard pushing up quickly to support.

All this sounds great, but it's essentially been the England plan for as long as I can remember. Hasn't worked before......

Well Man City prove money can buy you happiness...

I'm glad, but not in a wholehearted kind of way, I think it was more about not wanting to see Utd win again than wanting City to win it.
