Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Perhaps Derby should write to the league and ask for a 4-goal headstart every game - 2 and 3 isn't enough

Swansea must really miss Brendan, huh? 3-0 against him, 5-0 for them. I almost love it - thank god They are not top of the league

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Hmm, anyone would think QPR were suddenly desperate...you'd think Hughes would have known his defence was poor, though obviously he thought he'd stiffended it with the purchase of...er...Robert Green!

Hughes will have been swiftly disavowed of the notion that Green is a good keeper. First shot of the afternoon, Michu. Goal. And one that he really should have done much better with.

Dawson and Carvalho as Hughes' dream partnership at the back? Oh dear.

Clearly Green has his plus points, but he is prone to howlers and you would have thought Hughes would know that! Hell even I know that!

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

So far my predictions for WBA to drop like a stone and for Hazard to flop like a salmon have been proven astonishingly wrong.

The Premier League is shaping up very interestingly. It's a good job I ignore tables until the 11th game though, isn't it....

Lambert was a fool for taking over that sinking ship.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

I would be considerably more worried if I were a QPR fan. They are a shambles that relegation would probably kill off for the next decade or so. Utterly bizarre transfer policy - if you can call it a policy - of buying buying buying some more and then panic buying journeymen on reportedly big wages.

They'll probably stay up but will make it hard for themselves. Villa....who knows? Big job on there, that's for sure. It's unfathomable they could go down, and yet....

No team's too big to go down, but yeah QPR don't look v safe, and Norwich haven't started well either. Still long way to go yet...

Forest should be ashamed. Letting a league cup home tie to Wigan slip. Honestly. Wigan lose at this stage to lower league opposition annually!

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

I still can't believe they've signed Landsbury....

I appreciate she has a near 100% crime solving rate, but isn't she a bit old for the Championship?

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Lansbury's a great signing for them, especially for £1m. Sadly, that defense all but guarantees that they'll be playing Championship football against next season.

Collins is average, Halford and Ayala are awful, Moloney isn't as good as Freeman, Lascelles is completely untested at this level, Hutchinson has obvious injury concerns, which leaves Harding as the only decent defender IMO.

If they don't sign another defender or two before the deadline on Friday then they'll struggle to get into the playoffs come the end of the season.

I don't understand why Lansbury isn't playing PL football but dam that is a GREAT signing for Forest. Hopefully McGugan will be sold now because he is a fucking lazy bastard . I agree that our defence is CRAP and Why the hell we let Freeman leave and kept Moloney is beyond me. Simon Cox looks techinally a good player but he won't score more than 15, were still looking for that 20+ goals a season striker and we need a creative FAST winger.
