Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

From what I've seen/heard about the Scottish Premier League, it seems kind of like La Liga where unless you're a fan of one of the top two teams, you're probably not going to see your team win the league very often.

Yeah, that's probably just about the only conceivable way in which you could compare the SPL with La Liga without p1ssing yourself laughing.

I can't speak for the quality of either league, as I've only seen a few matches of La Liga and pretty much only one match between Celtic and Rangers about two years ago. I'm more familiar with the EPL and Serie A because that's mostly what Fox Soccer Channel shows over here.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

As far as my knowledge of Scottish football goes I'm afraid it begins and ends with Celtic and Rangers.

All I know is Liverpool just got beaten shit out of by fucking BOLTON WANDERERS so I'm not a happy chappy!!

I support the Scouse but I'll give an honourable mention to Fulham for beating Toon 5-2. Hell of a result for them.

I have a similar reaction when I hear people commenting how Swansea City are like Real Madrid!

Yes, I heard on the radio this morning someone interviewing Hugh Jenkins, the Swansea chairman, and referred to them 'playing like Barcelona' - presumably that's Swansea like Barcelona, like how The Beano is like The Times because both are produced on paper.....

Yep, and my boy Dempsey got himself a hat trick in that match.

Mario Balotelli is a fucking lunatic who deserves to be out for the rest of the season.

The locals refer to their team and area as 'Swanselona'. And they think everyone agrees! I dunno, they have one good season in about 25 years...

We're in the Carling Cup final. Bloody hell - would never believed that if you'd told me at the start of the season (not to mention still sitting pretty in 3rd in the league!). And after the most one-sided match I've ever been to as well - defeat on penalties seemed inevitable!

Que sera sera - Wembley's become our second home!

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

I think most Cardiff fans seemed to be expecting the worst this season, but Malky looks like he's doing a great job there. In fact, two very good managers at work in that semi final. Freedman's done a great job at Palace as well.

Nice that there are two teams doing well that I have no axe to grind with.

It's usually Leeds, Leicester, Forest etc......!
