I just think it's a shame that yet again after a week of great football from the Prem, CL, Uefa Cup and the rest of the League, the attention is focussed yet again on sodding referees or their assistants.

It happens every time.
It'll keep happening until they're made accountable. Managers get sacked, players get dropped, referees collect their mileage allowance.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

I'm sure you guys have seen it by now, so... what the HELL is Platini talking about!? Attacking Wenger over careful money management and wanting video replays for questionable refereeing decisions!? Does that man even listen to himself!?

Three things:

1. Platini is a fool.

2. He is also, for some reason, violently against the introduction of any technology into the game. He was the one who harpooned the chip in the ball technology which would with 100% accuracy tell when the ball crosses the goal line (needed, as we've seen this weekend) after it was all set to be introduced.

3. Platini is a fool.

Platini wouldn't have had the guts to say that a couple of years ago when David Dein was in charge of the G14.

The man is just insane. How on earth can his comments about Wenger's money-management be reconciled with his comments on teams operating and winning on massive debts!?

He obviously didn't see the £36m profit Arsenal just posted. Sure, we owe money, but that's the cost of real estate in London. We have a sound, sensible business model.

Howard Wilkinson gets it right:

LMA chairman Howard Wilkinson said: "Platini has made serious and personal comments about one of football's greatest ever managers, who is also counted among our most respected members.
Not so sure about the Sheffield thing, but I'm dead certain Platini is made of Fail and Mimes.

Getting beaten by Swansea hurts.

At least we didn't chase them into the sea though. Those Jack bastards

Platini's a parasite. He won't be happy until he's president of Fifa and had Association football banned in England.

But what's this? Tottenham winning a game? Okay, it's Newcastle in the league cup, but they'll take it.

Owen scored again Mr Capello...

Well he's certainly doing better than Crouch at the moment... which says very little.

Brighton are leading 'el Citeh' in Extra Time. If there's a god, he'll prove himself in the next 20 minutes. I love nothing more than cupsets.
