Right choice of words there - Chelsea will be no doubt looking to defend their title.....

With Derby ever keep a clean sheet this season, place bets now.

Clough seems to have turned into Ossie Ardiles...

Don't mind how many goals we concede, providing we keep scoring one more than they do!

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

A fine day's football yesterday:

History at Old Trafford. Did anyone ever believe any number of leads would be enough for Spurs until the whistle finally went? I wouldn't have believed they were safe if they had had a 5 goal lead in the 85th minute but there we go, it's Spurs!
Does any manager express his joy at winning as emphatically as AVB?
Arsenal and Chelsea spending 90 minutes seeing whose weaknesses would show up first. A fine goal from Torres.
City pulling it out the fire. Again. They're becoming more like their neighbours by the week, aren't they?
Norwich and Southampton showing why they are going down before the trees have leaves again.
Demba Ba scoring both an incredible running volley and with a volleyball-style slap shot. Shameless!
Blackpool, possibly the best team in the division, put to the sword at the Cardiff City Stadium. Glorious. Maybe promotion really is just a red kit away after all

And now Forest v Derby where nothing ludicrous, insane or out of the ordinary will happen at all....

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Football is so great right now !*

The 1st period of Valenciennes-Marseille is over and Marseille (leader of the Ligue 1) is losing 3-0. Everything is of course possible during the 2nd period but for the moment, just a week before the classico Marseille-Paris, it's very exiting.

* since the sorry excuse for a team we had in Paris was bought by Santa Claus.

Edit : 4-1 for Valenciennes, it's good, it's very very good

Makes up for two disallowed goals by Twatwell. What comes around......

That's how you beat 10 men.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Do Derby get to keep the Brian Clough Trophy now - that's three in a row isn't it?

Shaytan - always good to see a thumping win over the bigger sides. Are you concerned PSG are just going to romp to the title now though? After the first three games where they looked like a complete shambles, they seem to be hammering everyone in sight these last couple of weeks. Ominous for this season and more to come? Will anyone do a Montpellier and stop them (because Montpeillier certainly won't on current form, sadly).

Especially against Marseille but I'm biased

As a parisian, no I'm not concerned
But it's still only the beginning of the year and everything can happen. There is always some surprise after the winter break.

On sunday, it's Marseille against Paris, the 1st of the Ligue 1 against the 2nd and THE French clasico. And because it's not enough : PSG-Marseille on the next round of the Coupe de la ligue.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Divide that number by 0 to find out how many Wales and Scotland score between them.

Really though, I doubt England will get more than 6.
