Well done to the Malaysian Red Dragons for gaining promotion to the Prem

Seriously, well done Cardiff.

Very pleased that Cardiff have gone up......means we don't have to turn up for our annual drubbing next season!

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Our absence could be the difference between your mid-table obscurity and promotion. Indeed, won't next year be around the time you were always planning to kick on after 3-4 years of building under Nigel?

On a fun note, I did the BBC's Predictor earlier. I had four teams all finishing on 55 points and Wolves went down on goal difference with Blackburn in 21st. I think the playoffs were Watford, Leicester, Brighton and Bolton. What a division. I might even miss it

Yeah so we're told. If there's any progress at our place then it's positively snail-paced incremental improvement year upon year. By our current standards we should hope to challenge for the playoffs in about another decade.....

I'd pay good money to see Wolves and Blackburn go down, t'would be positively hilarious!

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

I'm actively willing those two to go down. They, Bristol and Peterborough have been the worst teams I've seen (live) this season and deserve it. Bonus factors: Darren Ferguson is incredibly unlikable; Wolves going down would be hilarious; Blackburn going down might actually see the end of the Venkys and help them in the long run.... and would be hilarious; Bristol City getting relegated is beyond hilarious.

Burnley, Millwall and Leeds were all awful this year too.

I have a lot of time for Dean Saunders so I'd quite like Wolves to stay up if I'm honest.

We won't be in a position to challenge for the play offs until we sign a halfway decent championship goal scorer unfortunately.

Bayern is scary good this year...

eta: 4:0, fuck me. And Barcelona with maybe 1 1/2 chances to score in the whole game if we're being generous. When was the last time Barcelona has been so thoroughly dominated?

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

There was a bit of fortune around a couple of the goals (Gomez looked offside, just, and how was Mueller's bodycheck NOT a foul during Robben's goal?!), but the scoreline really didn't flatter Bayern, they were utterly brilliant from start to finish. TBH, I don't really think it matters who makes it out of the other SF, Dortmund or Real, I can't see either of them beating Bayern.

Edit: Just had a quick look at Marca, apparently only three of Bayern's goals were 'illegal'.....!

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

I don't know, Gomez may have been offside, but disagree about the foul at the third goal. The German commentator I was listening to was also very upset about it and called it clearly illegal, but I'm not so sure. Basically the Barca player just ran into him, I mean he can't disappear exactly. If I had been a ref I would have let it stand.
