No, he'll waltz straight back in and Gerrard will be shifted out to the left and everyone will be left scratching their heads wondering why Gerrard isn't playing well.

Y'know, like what's been happening for the past 3 years.

Milner, Defoe, Rodwell and Walcott are unabled to be called up for the next squad plus the U21 have there crucial playoffs so Pearce will not want to lose any of his players like Wilshire and probably will want to recall Richards and Gibbs so his next squad will be interesting.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Well, I don't know where half our first team was yesterday so it was a very welcome win over Hull and a surprisingly comfortable one. Hull play very much like a team with no confidence judging by their performance yesterday - I expect their cataclysmically bad away form really must be praying on their minds after so long. They stay down fighting relegation with Pompey, Boro and Swansea (and Forest at this rate - did I hear it's the worst start to a season since the 80s!?).

Tuesday will be interesting - Cardiff travel to Leicester. Bottom vs joint top.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Another game, another 1-1 draw though to be fair we tried everything bar shooting the Millwall Goalkeeper in the 2nd half so he would let us score

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Just saw the highlights myself- you could have had a sackful!

I'm not looking forward to playing Millwall - they're our next visitors. Family-friendly kick-off at 12pm gosh I wonder why...

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Another disappointing defeat yesterday to Swindon. But tonight we've appointed our new manager, Nigel Adkins. Not the most high-profile but he did well with Scunthorpe so hopefully Saints can still at least make play-offs this season.

Well another home loss, and by all accounts Sheff Utd could (and possibly should) have had a hatful! Still at least we should get another striker in on loan today apparently...rumour has it its Craig Beattie from Swansea who I expect HappyDayRiot will only have good things to say about

Craig Beattie's at Swansea? First I've heard of it, and already he's going out on loan? He's a bit of a non-entity wherever he goes. I can't imagine he'll rile the CCS faithful too much!

Oh how the mighty have fallen...we'll be re-signing Steve Howard at this rate

Actually scrap that now they're saying it's Shefki Kuqi, who I always remember being a good player...if a bit old (but the team could use some experience). I think I prefer him to Beattie!

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

You got Kuqi huh? Barn doors of Derbyshire breath a sigh of relief, because he'll never hit any of them Better than Craig Beattie though. Not the worst loanee.

Anyone want to hazard a guess at how long Strachan has left at McBoro?

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

I hope we can beat Tottenham tonight. It would be a very good start to the CL group. I think this will either end in a convincing victory, or a convincing defeat.

I'm nervous!

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Tottenham are a very dangerous team at home and even Inter will struggle there but away from home there average at times. Spurs may get a draw and probably need to if come the end they are to pip you to 2nd however...

I think 3-1 to Bremen

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Well, that's weird.

Inter Milan, Werder Bremen, Tottenham and Twente, all equal at 1 point and 2 goals each after the first games.
