Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

If Inter wins this one they'll have won Serie A and beaten the new champions of the Bundesliga, La Liga and Premier League on their way to the CL title.

Now that does sound like a deserved win if it happens.


I'd still rather have that fourth CL spot next year though.

Shouting for Bayern or Inter? Talk about 'rock and a hard place'!

Doubt I'll watch it to be honest, just can't generate any enthusiasm for the game.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

How can you not generate enthusiasm for the European Cup Final? I always follow the latter stages of the Champions League, and I think this year's competition has been one of the best I've seen. I think it will be a great final. I'll be watching from 6 o'clock tomorrow.

Haha, nice, Nike is really good at this usually. It really captures how much often hangs on a single shot or tackle or save, etc. in football.

btw. time to open a World Cup thread, eh? "UEFA" football pretty much ends tonight until next season.

I'll be the first to offer my commiserations to HappyDayRiot....

Bad luck mate, I'm sure the fact that it was a great game for the neutral will meaning nothing to you at the moment, but it was.

Chin up mate, next season.

Aww thanks. It was truly horrible I must admit. I wanted to be the good loser and stay for Blackpool's crowning, but I just couldn't do it. They deserved it, but I thought we could have at least forced ET. That said, by about 80 minutes I couldn't take any more. I think I had my head in my programme at one point. Hit the post twice, micro-offside goal, about 10 minutes of non-stop pressure... It's gutwrenching to even think about at the moment. Knew it was going to be an uphill struggle as soon as Bothroyd went off.

It's an incredible occasion to be a part of to be fair. I watched the CL final as well and it was rubbish in comparison. I'm glad we get to send Etuhu back to Citeh now and hopefully ship out some others. I imagine we'll fade like all play-off losers next season and finish top 10 or so, so I'm prepared for an unexceptional season.

Saving grace is that next season's Championship is quite weak - only Burnley are a well set-up relegatee and they have a dodgy manager. I'm thinking Reading, Boro, Forest and maybe Doncaster and Ipswich will be the ones to watch out for.

Right now, my main thought is that we have the chance to smash Leeds. It's not the £90m price, it may not happen, but my god if it does... Oh and probably Swansea. I genuinely forgot about them until this very moment!

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Bad luck, been there and losing a playoff final's never a pleasant event. Be very interesting to see how Holloway's attacking mentality goes down in the Prem...

As for Cardiff, will Jones stay and where does this leave you financially?

My side split, the only thing that you will want to watch Forest for is to learn from the masters of SCREWING UP so you don't repeat our same mistakes we commit yea in year out.

I think I would say 12th place next year for us.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

^ I was being generous. I'm only worried about Reading frankly, but Forest and Doncaster overachieved this year and sometimes that spurs teams on and they do it again. And Boro will be playing for their lives as it's their second year of parachutes.

Will Dave Jones stay now? I hope so. But if he keeps making subs like Paul Quinn and Kelvin Etuhu, and playing Hudson instead of Gerrard, and not using McCormack, maybe I wouldn't mind some new blood.

After a setback like this, maybe new blood is the best way forward. If it weren't for the weakness of the league next year, I might have considered that DJ won't repeat this feat, he's taken as far as he can, say thank you and let him leave if he wanted to. But... I'd rather keep him for now.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

I've got memories of winning and losing at Wembley. Felt sick all the way through both of them.

Losing's bad enough, but we managed to lose to one of our closest rivals, after going ahead and frankly dominating the majority of the game. Paul 'fcuking' Williams suddenly forgot how to head a ball and that was it, we'd lost.

Still, beating WBA a few years ago was unbelievable. Sadly, it turned out to be a false dawn, and ended up being more trouble than it's worth.

Next year does look pretty weak. Personally I think that Norwich could do well, and I hate to say it, but so could Leeds. Steady rebuilding for us again over the summer so we'd do well to sneak into the playoffs, but to be honest I think midtable.

Forest, I don't really expect Davies to be there still come the new season. Love him or loathe him he does know how to build competitive championship teams. Without him, I think you'll struggle. This season just gone was a bit of a gamble with Doughty throwing more money in that he really wanted to. Failing to gain promotion was a bitter blow, it'll be interesting to see what he does now. More money or cut his losses.

Yeah the 94 Play Off final was annoying. Josie thought he was being clever cos he obviously planned to flick the ball over the bar...instead it sailed over his head! I was at uni and in the middle of my exams...not a great aid to revision that!

I predict Derby to finish anywhere between mid table and the bottom of the playoffs next season! Defensively we look more solid, if we can get a bit more creativity and certain players can stay fit (I'm looking at you Kris!) then it's possible.
