Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Looks like renowned Dutch coach Staaf VanClaren's team is out. Didn't see it, but from the audio feed from the Arsenal site sounded like easy work.

Pool still struggling.

Edit: and at the very second I type that ...

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

I've seen teams win undeservedly before, but tonight takes the ****ing cake. Poor Belgiums. Played Liverpool off the field for nearly 210 minutes and lost. Sickening.

And Arsenal sounded like easy work? I assure you, if RVP remembered how to shoot and Walcott and Bendtner were any good, it would have been 12, not 4. Twente didn't have a credible attack all game, and the left back was as useful, as said by Lawrenson, as Nickelback.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

ENG are in more trouble...

Liverpool's Steven Gerrard is set to miss England's upcoming 2010 World Cup qualifiers after being booked in for groin surgery.
With Hargreaves a doubt, we could be left with Barry/Lampard starting but those two struggle together. We might as well forefit the Croatia game at this rate

Bendtner was superb as the big man striker. They kept trying to use him as a playmaker which he can't do. I like the guy a lot. He just needs to work on his close control but he's young and he'll learn.

Naturally, the op is timed to ensure he misses as little league as possible. Hopefully by the time he gets back they'll have lost to Villa and United and Benitez will be gone.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Rafael Benitez playing someone out of position!? The only player he plays in position and for more than 3 games in a row is his goalkeeper!

Actually maybe he needs to start rotating again. Can't get any worse than the current line-up can it?

Also, why on earth did Mascherano not play? Sergio Aguero was part of the Olympic team too, and he played for Atletico and was absolutely fine!

They will win the CL again this year and everyone will be happy. Next year will again be their year in the premier league.

^They say that every year.

They've got everything going for them. A huge fanbase, billionaire owners, a good manager, their best players are loyal, Champions League football bringing in the money, a massive squad and not such a bad injury list. They have no excuses for going getting on for twenty years without a league title.

As a fan of a club that's going to be skint for the next 17 years, has to make do with kids, sells its best players every summer and still manages to compete, I am not going to feel all that sympathetic to their plight.

billionaire owners
This is the biggest problem because they don't seem very rich, god knows what buying Liverpool did to there account balance

some major news today...

SWP has signed for Man City today after leaving the club in 2005.

Real and Juve in the same group. Those games should be fun.

Well, it's soon to be announced that they are shelving plans for a new stadium, so the ownership bullshit is going to start up again. With no stadium, Hicks will hopefully decide to sell. The Dubai group are still very much interested.

This could be the reason they didn't sanction the Barry deal, as it would have required another loan.

We are fucking abysmal at the moment, but fortunately we're scraping through with results. Basically the wings are shit, and the midfield doesn't work. The fullbacks weren't giving enough either. Other than that, we're brilliant. We should be signing a winger soon, Mascherano will be back to run midfield, and Gerrard can push forward. Well, after he's recovered.

Also, why on earth did Mascherano not play? Sergio Aguero was part of the Olympic team too, and he played for Atletico and was absolutely fine!
Masch wasn't registered in the CL squad because we have too many foreign players for the UEFA quota (which is another reason Rafa wanted Barry and Keane), and the squad was still in flux at the time. He'll be in for the group stages without a doubt.

I'm reasonably happy with the CL draw (and I'm delighted we're in it at all!) - Marseille and PSV have both been on the recieving end of some thrashings in the last couple of years, and Atleti are very beatable. They were outfoxed by Gery Megson last season. Will be interesting to see how Torres performs against his old club, and great to see Luis Garcia back at Anfield.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

ENG U21 squad has been picked and Micah Richards is in so he won't play in the senior team WC Q/F's. Also Fergie has said Hargreaves will not be match fit for ENG even though he is due to play a part in Utd next 2 games so thats total B.S...

We have no one left with Gerrard & Carrick injured leaving us with 3 recognised central midfielders in Lampard, Barry & Jenas so that means if Hargreaves can run and kick a ball, he is going.

For the 1st time ever I will call on a ENG defeat in a major competitve game, such proves just low my confidence is for ENG, capello was never my 1st choice, I wanted...

Mourinho, O Neill or Big Phil.

ENG to beat Andorra but lose 2-0 to Croatia.
