To be honest I don't think John Terry is even that good - his performances of late look distinctly average from where I'm sitting.

Yeh Terry's best days are behind him I would like to see Cahill, Dawson, Jones and Jagielka to be our 4 central defenders (Smalling over Jagks if he plays more in cb).

^^ Possibly Shawcross as well, but no, definitely not Terry. Should have been dropped a long time ago, on form alone.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

I think it's fair to say after all this Terry/Capello/FA/Evra/Suarez/Redknapp stuff, that English football is in complete meltdown. It never seems to be about two teams on the pitch anymore - and certainly not in any game between clubs from the top 6 of the Premier League. Can anyone remember the last one that didn't have some whipped-up controversy in it, probably involving a refereeing decision? The whole thing is a soap opera to sell papers and fuel Sky Sports News, it seems.

I'm also pissed off that Cardiff's PA have started playing music when we score a goal at home. A practice I despise and has actually prompted me to write to the club and complain. Is there any more soulless, atmosphere-crushing practice than to drown out the sounds of cheering and applause of the vast majority of the stadium? Just awful.

^^ Get yourself down to Forest mate, they have a similar set up there, but yesterday was the first time they've heard any music since November......!

Surely they can't play it often enough to piss anyone off?

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

^ nicely played We're the division's second top scorers at home though

I'll probably have to just put up with it... at least it means we're scoring goals at least!

Football?

Sorry, I'm so sorry

So Rangers and Pompy heading for administration? I'm guessing Rangers will survive, and might not even end up needing to actually go into administration, but Portsmouth?

I'm amazed they're still breathing to be honest, can't see them being in the championship next season and they may not even be in the league full stop at this rate.

Bit of a lifeline for either Forest or Donny though...

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Any other season I'd probably applaud Pompey's demise. until an example is made of someone then teams like Leeds, Leicester etc will continue to take the p1ss by using administration as a form of shirking their debts.

That being said, not this season though, not when Forest might go down.......!

Rangers - they threatened administration yesterday as a tactic to safeguard them against them losing their current case with the HMRC - I see that today though that HMRC have fired back by trying to put the club into administration themselves. The difference being that if HMRC puts them in then they get to choose the administrators rather than the club.

I'm not sure what the song actually is but it's one that the fans nicked the tune from for our Kevin McNaughton song. Doesn't matter now - no music last night* and rumour had it there were lots of complaints!

Pompey are truly screwed. How the hell they haven't been liquidated already I have no idea. Rangers is a total mess...but 10 points off and they're still about 10 points clear in second place. Hardly fatal.

*we won 3-1

Congrats. My club has been playing stupid shit after goals as far back as I can remember (almost 20 years by now, I'm getting old...). I like that there are still clubs that do some things old-school, especially in Britain.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

I can't believe that Arsenal are as shambolic as they were last night.

Wenger really needs to sort that defence out, they're just far too lightweight. T'was literally like watching a professional side playing my lad's U11 side.

Fair play to Milan, they were brilliant, and great to watch. Wenger really needs to stop d1cking about and sort that squad out. Take RvP out of that side and they're very average. Too many players who shouldn't be anywhere near their first team.
