Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

My two teams won today.

Rangers beat Motherwell 2-1.

Bayern Munich beat Nurenberg 1-0, keeping them in the hunt for the Bundesliga title.

Well whilst I'm amused to see the house of King Kenny come tumbling down, I hope Perch gets some kind of fine for that play acting that got the goalie sent off, he clearly makes zero contact.

Still what can you expect from a former Forest player

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Are Derby looking to be rid of Chris Maguire or is he just on loan with Pompey for experience/development? What a goal. If you don't want him, I think I would definitely take him down here.

Also if Derby could give their annual capitulation at our place this month and help with our goal difference, that would be great I thought it might be better to miss out on the play-offs this season but what the hell, got to have a chance in the lottery. If we're going to fail for the fourth season in a row, just as well do it properly!

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Lord knows...the prevailing wisdom appears to be that he hasn't been doing it in training, Nige seems to only have time for players who give 100%, or else Maguire critisised Clough/the coaching staff. Some players just don't fit in certain set ups. To be honest I'd rather have Robinson and Steve Davis (god if that guy could just stay fit for a season!)

I think Clough said it best yesterday, if there were 10 games left the playoffs might be a possibility, but barring some other teams massively falling off I don't think its likely this year.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

7 points clear with 12 poins on the table though our next 2 games are Blackpool & Reading so its not over just yet. Hull City n Pompey being the last two games should see us get there should we need another win to make sure of it. Just checked foxtures of Coventry and we might need one more win since they play...

* Burnley
* Millwall
* Doncaster
* Southampton

Millwall & Donny are winnable games for them and Burnley can go either way maybe a point at least. Southmapton may be promoted by then so Coventry could even give them a run for their money. Bristol City who are 3 points behind us have much tougher fixtures so they may go down instead of Coventry despite beating them last night.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Doncaster and Pompey are gone. Beyond that it's between Forest, Bristol C and Coventry - all three of whom have come into a bit of form of late.

Personally, I think it's Coventry who're going to take that final spot in the drop zone.

Maguire - probably depends on what happens with a few of the other players we've got around the squad. I'd be inclined to give him another chance.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

I think it's going to be Coventry as well - they look like their luck will run out before the finish line, and losing to Bristol hasn't helped them in the slightest.

Please, please....if we don't make the play-offs, please don't let it be Leicester who take our place. Boro or Brighton fine, but not them. Two wins and a draw from Barnsley, Derby, Leeds and Palace should be enough. And whilst we're not winning much, we're not losing either. We could yet have a chance. I would happily fancy us in a one-off with any of Brum, Blackpool or West Ham (though Blackpool would be truly horrible to go through again).

I truly hate this part of the season

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

I think you'll make the playoffs, and after that it's anyone's.

West Ham will finish 3rd, and you may well finish 6. Over 2 legs I'd probably fancy West Ham to go through, but you can't underestimate the crushing disappointment of so narrowly missing out on the automatics.

Reading and Southampton will be the two automatics, and then I'm not overly bothered about who goes up in the playoffs - providing it's not Leicester. I wouldn't mind Cardiff or Blackpool going up.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

I'd like Brighton to go up, but mainly because my best mate's a Brighton fan and I like what Poyet's done there, and it'd be a great story for a team who not so many years ago only avoided dropping out of the league on the last game of the season and who spent years playing in a small athletics stadium.

Of course one of my other friends is a Hammers fan...

What I would dearly love is to finish above Leicester, that's my only requirement now!

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Play off final 1994...

Also

1# The money being thrown about, sorry but it's true. Trying to buy their way to the Prem and it isn't working.
2# They're a local rival
3# They think they're a bigger local rival than they are. They imagine they're part of a triumverate with Derby and Forest, but Derby/Forest fans don't see it the same way, a victory against Forest will always be sweeter, same as a loss against Forest will always be more depressing. I suspect Jax will say the same from a Forest perspective.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

^At least your local rivals aren't the current media darlings of the Premier League And they're in the same league for you to play against. We have Bristol City, which is a million miles away from a proper derby and grudge with Swansea.

I'm sick of the sight of Leicester - we've played them about 10 times in 3 seasons since they last got promoted. And our record at their ground is abysmal. That's their stupidly renamed stadium, too.

It also annoys me that their manager left them to go to Hull, and then went back for the money that poured into the club just after he left. Really shitty to ditch Hull in my opinion.

Also, Jermaine Beckford, who did much the same thing.

Yep, Forest fans don't care about Leicester they aren't rivals.

Derby is the big showdown we all like to see twice a season.
