Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Brann vs Lillestrom

Brann try to return the ball after a stop in play for an injury but inadvertently score instead! Then they gift them an equaliser.

2 points;

1) Love how everyone appears to blame the goalscorer when in reality it's clearly the keeper's fault

2) The Brann keeper appears to be having none of letting them score a goal back, instead doing his best to try and make the save!

I guess if you're a goalie instinct kicks in!

1. Man Utd
2. Chelsea
3. Man City
4. Arsenal
5. Liverpool
6. Tottenham
7. Everton
8. Stoke City
9. Sunderland
10. Fulham
11. Aston Villa
12. Bolton
13. West Brom
14. Norwich City
15. Newcastle Utd

Same thing happened with Ajax once, also pretty funny, because the guy trying to get back the goal misses initially.



re: 2) maybe Brann said "hey, you get a chance, but you've got to win the 1:1 against the goalie"

Rio set to be snubbed in favour of John carrying cracked ribs Terry and Kyle Walker set to miss out due to a broken toe, another example of the pathetic boots they wear these days.

Well much as I detest the guy Terry is probably fitter and in better form than Rio...

Rio's form 2nd half of the year been pretty good IMO, he's hardly been injured and Terry still got that rib problem. Looks like Andy Caroll is set to make the squad according to some sport writers on twitter.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Wasn't Fergie saying something to the effect that Rio would struggle to play games that close together?

I don't have a huge issue with Caroll making the squad, he's in form at least, and it is just a squad--personally I'd take Crouch, say what you like about him he scores goals at international level.

He managed the run in which saw Utd playing quite a few games in a short space of time and he looked fresh n fit unlike Terry who after that Liverpool game looks like hes ready to drop.

Squad should be announced in a few mins.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

FULL SQUAD

Hart, Green, Ruddy

Johnson, Jones, Terry, Lescott, Cahill, Cole, Baines

Walcott, Downing, Chamberlain, Young, Gerrard, Barry, Lampard, Parker, Milner

Defoe, Rooney, Welbeck, Carroll
STAND BY

Butland, Jagielka, Henderson, A Johnson, Sturridge
Jones is covering two positions RB and CB.

Richards switches off? WTF does Lescott and Johnson do then? am surprised they can get out of bed in the morning.

DOWNING So no Lennon clearly the most natural english winger in the PL and not even standby.

Barry over Carrick? how rigid does Roy want our midfield.

Carroll (can't score) Defoe (Can't get a game)

Group stage elimination.

Downing and Lescott - FFS, why?!

Should have been Adam Johnson and Shawcross for my money.

We might, repeat might, scrape into the QFs but we can give up any realistic hopes of getting any further.
