Them beating our total even with a points deduction might make it even more embaressing for us!

I think you're spot on about Nigel, he does seem to be a very good man manager (and not just with lower league players, Savage was practically heading off to Beirut and seen as ready for the scrp heap before he came along.)

He's transformed the fortunes of a few players who looked like they were going nowhere;

Savage, Bywater, McEveley, Pearson, even Teale last season for a brief while.

Yeah surprised Teale has gone off again. McCevely always seems to have bright spells (even under Jewell) then slip back again. Does seem more consistant (but might be playing for a contract)

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Capello is supposed to name his squad tonight though hes taking his sweet time. Personally this would be my 23 man squad...

James, Robinson, Hart
Richards, Brown, Terry, Upson, Dawson, Lescott, Warnock, Baines
Walcott, Beckham, Barry, Lampard, Gerrard, Carrick, Milner, J.Cole
Rooney, Defoe, Crouch, Heskey
I would also start Hart and Baines.

Ugh. Poor Aaron Ramsey. I really hope he recovers okay, Diaby and Eduardo have had a really hard time coming back from their breaks.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

I can understand Wenger's frustration and anger, but I believe Shawcross when he says that there was no malice in the tackle. It was poor, and unfortunate in that he made contact just after Ramsay had planted his standing foot. There was just no give. I can't see the FA doing anything to increase Shawcross's ban, and rightly so IMO.

Shame about Chelsea.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Frankly, I couldn't care less about Shawcross and whether or not he felt there was no malice, I don't feel anger towards him, but I think he has to take a good look at himself. Ramsey's the one in hospital with a potentially career threatening injury, so Shawcross gets little sympathy or time from me, he'll be playing next week for England, and for his team again very soon.

Chelsea? Well what can you say, they'll definitely drop more points before the end of the season, their run-in all but guarantees that.

0:3, hm? Ouch.
My club had a painful defeat today too. Only 0:1, but it probably cost us a realistic chance at winning the championship.

Yeah, I understand, that hurts. Alcohol helps though.

I'm fine with just winning it once a decade anyway, I'm not greedy.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Ah crap, another day another Man Utd trophy.

I'm sure the ref will be able to explain why two Villa players got carded after Vidic comitted a similar foul that led to a penalty (and when he might even have been the last man) and didn't even get a yellow? Then again much how Rafael got a mere warning after two fouls in quick succesion.

I'd have loved to see Villa win this. I loved the coment from one of the commentary team though..."Well Capello's probably glad that Owen's injured himself, that's one less hard decision."

Yes, a shame. Villa looked good until United scored. After that, I didn't feel that the result was in too much doubt. Villa only really looked dangerous again after United went ahead.

Vidic I would say deserved a yellow card. I don't think that you could justify a red. If the foul had been committed when Agbonlahor was clean through then yes, but as it was, the lad lost the ball in his feet and had to check, giving Vidic the chance just to get goalside again, which is when he brought Agbonlahor down.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

I'd agree it didn't warrant a red, and I think you'd have to be a brave ref to send off a player mere minutes into a Wembley final, but he definitely should have had a yellow, especially considering what happened not long after to the Villa players, and the fact Vidic got a yellow in the second half as well.

Yeah unfortunately Villa didn't keep up the tempo of the start, which is a shame as they made Utd look vulnerable.
