That picture neglects the fact it was a 50/50 the ball was in the air of course hes going for it with his foot and he got the ball first, if anything Alves pulled out of the challenge but left his leg there and I was always taught pulling yourself out of a challenge mid way can be more dangerous.

Adebayor was a clear red no doubt.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Great advert for Spanish football.....

I just wish that Fifa/Uefa would take a harsh stance towards simulation. As bad as some of the Madrid team are at times, they were made to look like complete amateurs by the likes of Busquets and Pedro. Barcelona are the best team in the world, and they play some of the best football that I can remember, so why the fcuk do they need cheating twats like that anywhere near their team?!

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

UEFA/FIFA really need to start using retrospective evidence to target cheats and ban them, they would soon stop it if they kept missing games because I doubt their own clubs would be happy.

The UEFA CL last night was turned into the 2006 World Cup where diving and simulation + bad refs wrecked that tournament and threatens to derail the standard of football in the CL.

Great game between Real Madrid and Barcelona last night.

Looking forward to Liverpool's game against Newcastle on Sunday because it's been a little while since I've been to a Liverpool Newcastle game.

Great? no am sorry that tarnished football in such a bad way that both clubs should be thrown out of the CL next year it was horrible.

Great games are Arsenal 3-3 Spurs or Man Utd 4-3 Man City, Liverpool 4-3 Newcastle. Great end to end football with goals, passion and mistakes...not diving every 20 seconds.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

See the Fabregas speculation is sparking off again. He's clearly too honest for La Liga. Greaseball going to Madrid was appropriate, but genuine players should stay well clear.

Forest are in the playoffs barring a huge win for Leeds and massive defeat for Forest due to our 6 goal advantage in the goal difference. Now for the crushing 2nd leg wipe out

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Phew, might finally be able to finish my Forest Playoffs Implosion DVD trilogy. The Yeovil and Blackpool ones need a bookend......

Besides, it's common knowledge, we're the only side that Billy can get promoted through the playoffs.....

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Good chance it'll be Cardiff acting as your bookend!

So QPR are promoted... until Friday at least. I want a proper promotion really, rather than a hollow one. Then again, they shouldn't bloody cheat, should they? So it's their problem, not mine, and I'll toast our promotion.

I'd rather go up having won our last two games and Pompey/Marlon King making Norwich slip-up.

I just read an interesting comment on this actually - is it fair in the slightest to drop QPR into the play-offs? All of sudden it's not some inconsistent team involved, it's the best in the league. Wouldn't it be fairer on Swansea, Reading and Forest to take enough points to make them finish 7th instead?

Sorry, but since the 15-points rumour started, it's all I can think of without a game to go on a Saturday! The letter of the post-Tevez law says they have to have a deduction, and the FA are hardly known for doing anything sensible/proportionate!

Edit: and why the hell wasn't this sorted out months ago!?

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

They needed to wait and see how many points they could dock them without it affecting their promotion.

It'll be a symbolic punishment. I imagine that what they really wanted was to dock them enough points to drop them to second - they get promotion but not as champions. Sadly, as Norwich and Cardiff are neck and neck the FA can't do it.

I'd pay good money to see QPR shunted into the playoffs. I know what you're saying about it not being fair on the other clubs in the playoffs, but it'll give Colin a coronary, and that's well worth it.

This is what baffles me.

Anyway, one more win (hopefully today against Plymouth) and Saints are back up into the Championship

^ Well done the Saints!

Whereas we lost 0-3 to Middlesbrough. A more depressing way to fall into the play-offs I cannot imagine.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

And then Norwich beat Pompey to get automatic promotion. Very good achievement for them to have successive promotions.

And in The Championship next year we'll have (barring a miracle) Saints, Brighton, Pompey and possibly Bournemouth if they win the play-offs. A south coast revival!

I'm quite pleased because my best mate's a Brighton fan, also another friend is a West Ham fan but obviously it'll be a bit of a come down for him next season...probably!

At least he'll have the immense joys of the West Ham-Millwall derby.
