Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Didn't see that coming!

Be interesting to see if Utd suddenly start buying the sort of players Rooney was talking about...I'm guessing not which suggests it was all about the money.

Be interesting to see how the United fans react next home game...

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Well didn't expect that though to be honest I think his agent is a biggr dickhead, he would sell Rooney's kid for a commision and probably has already sold his mum ...I really hate football agents.

As for Bale, I expect all the major clubs to go after him, hes top class on that left wing...God if he was English he could light up a Euro or World Cup.

Fcuking Wales, always get the best left-footed players, Giggs, Bale.....

We end up with bloody Wayne Bridge and Stewart Downing!

Still, at least we have Cole and Johnson I guess.

So Pompey might be going out of business.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

I can't see it happening...someone always steps in at the last moment...always...

Although we all know that eventually a team will die, if it isn't Pompy it'll be someone else.

Part of me thinks football won't really get it till a big club goes under, but frankly I wouldn't wish it on any set of fans...that's right, not even Forest!

I hope they survive.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

At the risk of sounding incredibly harsh, I hope they go. No one takes seriously the threat of not controlling your spending, and living within your own means at that level. Until one of them bites the dust then we're going to continue in this downwards spiral until the whole game implodes.

I feel sorry for the fans, but the club has no one to blame but itself.

Speak for yourself, I regularly sacrifrice virgins in the name of any dark demon with the power to end Derby County ...Sadly one of them backfired and Billy Davies came to us.

I always knew Forest fans were in league with Satan!

Billy D is a fairly minor demon, although I'm sure he beleives he's Lucifer

Looks like they're safe

Good. I wouldn't like to see any club go under (except the Jacks obviously, we actively pray for that) but I especially don't want to lose our 3 points and 2 goals we scored at Fratton in August!

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Anyone see Lewis McGugan's 35 yard wonder strike for Forest .

One thing thats always annoyed me was we never played him enough, first time I saw him 3 years ago I thought next big player from the Academy. Hes had an amazing start to the season with 7 goals from 12 games and his Forest career

23 league goals in 108 League games from a 21 year old central midfielder in 4 years, not bad at all Plus hes excellent at set pieces and his passing game is top notch.

Yeah, great goal from him. Doncaster got a couple of nice goals yesterday too.

God damn I'm annoyed with myself! Dropped Hernandez from my fantasy team and he hasn't stopped scoring since!
