Jeez that's really scary, I was just flipping through CNN and Sky and there doesn't seem to be anything on.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

The nations cup going on has to be put into question and one more incident like this could de rail it all the way. I bet Angola don't get to host it for at least another 50 years after this.

On a brighter note whatever Billy D is feeding the players at Forest is still working as we beat 2nd place West Brom away 3-1 to leapfrog them in the table. 17 league games unbeaten and 18 in total though I doubt we will beat our record which is somewhere in the late 40's under Brian Clough .

QPR, Derby and Birmingham still to come in the month so I expect the record to come to an end sooner rather than later.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

^ As I type your boys are holding their own quite nicely against Birmingham, and there'd certainly be no shame in losing to them! (edit: okay, you lost despite better being the better, and unlucky, team, it seems.) My team threw away a lead again so replay for us as well. We could do with the gate money I guess but damn we could do without more fixtures!

So Sol Campbell is back at Arsenal, playing for the reserves tonight. Am I the only one who is amused by the irony of the opponents being West Ham, against whom he had his infamous breakdown back in 2006? Very surprised at Wenger bringing a player back though.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Hurrah we're in the 4th round...talk about taking it to the last possible second though!

Yeah that is interesting about Wenger/Campbell. Perhaps Wenger really feels they have a chance of taking the title and wants Campbell's experience. Be interesting to see if he is still up to the Prem. Actually reminds me of the sort of left field signing Ferguson would usually make...

So, Liverpool out...what does Benitez have to do to get the sack?

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Maybe he needs to consistently field a first XI of total mediocrity, as opposed to his usual 7 or 8 of the starting players. Oh, and play half of them totally out of position in a nonsensical formati... oh. He does that already? Then I have no idea.

I am amused by Big Four clubs failing and looking like idiots though, so they can keep him for all I care.

Does Liverpool even count as "Big Four" anymore at this point?

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Well you're still the Champions of your league until someone else wins from you, and you're still champions of a cup competition until you get knocked out, so on that logic you're still Big Four until someone officially replaces you in it at the end of the season.

Though Liverpool will be mathematically be out of it long before then, especially with no Torres for 6 weeks.

I can't figure out if its the fact that he hasn't lost the fans yet (somehow) or the fact that he's cost a bomb to replace?

I see Paul Hart has gone from QPR already! Jesus they really are a laughing stock of a club!

I didn't know that until I read your post, and even then I thought you were joking

I'm not sure which I like more - big club soap operas or Guus Hiddink. Tough one. I doubt there's a Liverpool fan in the land who wouldn't love to have him though. Wasn't he linked with Juventus that long ago as well?

I can't quite figure out if Hart was sacked or quit, either way it doesn't bode well. The QPR job is turning into more of a poisoned chalice than even the Newcastle job was!

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

It's been two weeks since the last post here and QPR haven't sacked anyone!

Crystal Palace have gone into administration though. Appalling timing considering the money they're likely to make by selling Victor Moses before Sunday night. They won't be the last to go into administration this season either - Cardiff are worryingly close to it. The perfect way to undo our recent revival and promotion push. Our stadium costs have really left us hamstrung in the short term - where else could all the money from the sales of players from Ramsey gone? Worrying times down here - there's a protest being planned for before the Doncaster game on Saturday. I'm going to that game so it's going to be interesting to say the least.

Chelsea in the Cup as well. Would have been perfect for us to get them at home, but a trip to the Bridge and the most lethal team in the country awaits.

So did you guys hear? Osama Bin Laden just sent a new tape to prove he is still alive. He said "man city were fucking shit last night." MI6 spokes person has dismissed it saying "it could have been recorded at any time in the last 34 years.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

19 League Games unbeaten Forest travel to Derby this weekend looking for our first away win against the Rams since the 90's and our first win at Pride Park

3-2 win for us at the City Ground but this could be even closer as the form book goes out the window for derbies. Personally I'd settle for a draw and I think it wil end 2-2. The PL beckons for 2nd place Nottingham Forest

Hehe.

They weren't even that bad though, but it was by far the most entertaining match between two English clubs I've seen in a long time.
