Title: Todays fitba
Post by: TENEMENTFUNSTER on January 25, 2009, 04:04:32 PM
Looks like Killie's home form in the SPL continues.

Couldn't happen to a better group of cunts.  :thumbsup:

45:11 GOAL - Richard Offiong
Kilmarnock 0 - Hamilton 1

Tousy first half, 5 bookings!

Killie are fucking brutal.


As is the Merseyside derby in the cup... Toffee Men should have had a pen, but as it was at the KOP end didn't get it.  If they had, it'd only have been their second penalty at Anfield in 71 years...

the guy is a brilliant player, what would they do without him though?

111 goals for Liverpool from midfield and he's still got a good few years left in him.  I don't really mind Gerrard to be honest, seems a decent enough guy.  Of course I like Jamie Carragher too (but I'm really just sayin that so he doesn't get his mates to batter me in a shopping centre    ::)  )

I suspect most bin dippers wouldn't want to even contemplate that "what if".

I wouldn't go as far as saying they are a one man team but I do think they are as close to it as you can get. Torres is such a good player but they seem to have managed without him for long periods, Keane can't kick his ain arse just now (especially now as he isn't even getting the blazer off!), but take Gerrard out of it and suddenly Liverpool are a much softer proposition. Any team would be weaker without him but there's a difference between being weaker and just being ordinary.

Yeah, agree with that. Mascherano and Alonso are cracking footballers too, but they have to have a gerrard and Torres in front of them for them to be effective.  Torres' play for their goal today was lovely, very much the sort of thing you'd expect from Berbatov rather than Torres (that's not a slight on Torres), but it could only have been Gerrard from that team who went on to finish it.

Did you see any of it TF? Alves had three or four great chances, Given denied him each time. Really should have taken at least one of them.  there's no soul in Boro's team though, and i was really surprised Tuncay was only on the bench.

1620: Incredibly, Dougie McDonald has reversed his decision after consulting with his linesman and a corner is awarded to Hearts! That's twice that's happened today (see 1544)

1619: Penalty to Hearts! Dean Holden pulls down Andrew Driver and the ref points to the spot.

Never saw any of it but my mate was there and phoned me after, said they probably should have won it but for Given having an absolute blinder, he also said though that despite the saves, he should have finished almost all of them.

Nae baws. Tuncay has been off the boil recently but it's still a bit surprising.

aye, first chance in particular should have been buried.

Charlie Adam has just been sent off on his Blackpool debut for Serious Foul Play.

Apparently when they heard that Adam had come down from Scotland to sign for Blackpool, the Blackpool beach donkeys were outside Bloomfield Road with signs saying:

"Blackpool Jobs for Blackpool Donkeys!"

1641: Sending off at Tynecastle! Hearts defender Marius Zaliukas is given a straight red card after wrestling Carl Finnigan to the ground as the Falkirk man raced in on goal. Mickey Rourke would've been proud of that one in his new movie The Wrestler.

Also

1625: Sending off at the Caledonian Stadium. Kevin Kyle is shown a straight red card for an illegal challenge on David Proctor.

And

1638: Sending off at Celtic Park! Poor Adam Coakley is given a second yellow card for a clumsy challenge on Celtic's Lee Naylor. Queen's Park's goalscorer trudges off for an early bath.

Thought this was funny too

1621: Jambos boss Csaba Laszlo is apoplectic with rage and Bruno Aguiar has lost the plot, dancing about like a man whose hair is on fire!

Big time. United have had several away grounds in the Premiership that regularly bite them on the bum, Upton Park is certainly one of them.

West Ham are playing well at the moment too, as are United of course, but the Spammers like playing United and their fans are always well up for it.  Hope it's 4-0 United though.  :thumbsup:

Paul Scholes was utterly sublime all night. Wonderful footballer.

The huns won 4-0... Kris Boyd didn't score, so that's Sellick and Forfar he's failed to score against this season.  Watty will definitely be trying to get rid in the summer... if Watty's still there of course...

 :clap:

Was going to start a thread about him, an absolute masterclass in how to play midfield tonight. 

Scholes' passing was absolutely incredible, I lost count of the amount of times I shook my head after watching one of his passes.  The one with the outside of his right boot to John O'Shea in the build up to Berbatov's goal was just class.  As for the volley, genius, sheer genius.

United as a whole were awesome this evening.  I recommend everyone watches that game if they get the chance.  As Arsene Wenger said, "Man United are almost untouchable".  Ferguson has pulled a masterstroke in the way he still gets performances like that from Scholes and Giggs.  He knows exactly when, and who, to use from his squad at the right times of the season.

Still not conceded in the league since the day I went to Goa, November 8th.  Where are those clowns that say Ferdinand and O'Shea are sh*te?  :wave:

Motherwell are more used to the state of the ark pitch they installed after the severe damage the pitch suffered last season.

Here it is just after completion in July last year, impressive.

Hibs one up in the Edinburgh derby, Fletcher with a header.

Man utd - Liverpool game is pretty good so far.

1-1 now, Penalty by Ronaldo then Vidic cocked up tremendously to allow Torres through to equalise. Still a good game though, nice open football.

a draw would probably be better for us in that game.

We don't want hibs and motherwell getting too close to us. We still haven't sealed our place in the top 6.

Indeed, though a win for Hibs wouldn't be the worst result in the world. Just need to hope Hibs avoid defeat!

3-1 to the scum. Liverpool have played well but I think united have been poor today. Vidic (sent off) and Evra the stand outs. Don't know what's been wrong with the two of them today, especially Vidic as he's usually so composed. Oh well, I suppose it extends the title "race".

Edit: Flock me, 4-1, Dossena. Great finish.

Vida had a few poor moments, I think Evra's been poor for a while now as has Carrick. The sending off,  well, can't complain about that, wonder if Rafa will still be moaning about Fergie and refs though.  I'd said to a mate a while ago that I had a feeling that when United's unbeaten run was going to go, it was going to go in style, so to speak. Just wish I hadn't been right and wish it hadn't been against those classless cunts.  

Two victories now this season that United have handed Liverpool on a plate. Unbelievable.

It should still be United's title.  Still theirs to throw away, really.  If you're a bindipper though, you must be asking questions of how you can beat both United and Chelsea twice and still be way off the pace?

I actually thought Carrick had a good game. But yeah I agree with what you say about Evra, he's been very poor for a long time now. I certainly didn't see that coming but you knew United couldn't carry winning for that long a period, but as you said, just a shame it was to those scum bags from Liverpool. Hopefully United won't bottle under pressure!

I think Saturday highlighted just how frustrating it must be for Liverpool fans. Liverpool have a superb record against the "big 4" this season yet have stumbled against the likes of Wigan and Stoke.

They played very well on Saturday, not many teams go 1 down at Old Trafford and storm back like that.

A couple of wins in one season doesn't suggest that Rafa 'owns' anyone.  United have two trophies in the bag at the moment, are favourites for the league title, joint favourites for the Champions League, and have a FA Cup semi against Everton to look forward to.

Liverpool are still 3rd in the league, with this being the first season under Benitez that they've managed to come out top in the big four.  I think I'm right in saying that until this year the only player that'd scored for Liverpool against United in Benitez's tenure was John O'Shea.  At least at the end of the year they'll have a 4-1 win at Old Trafford to hold onto.   ;D

Robo, why do you speak such shite? It pissed me off United lost, yes, especially in the manner they did. However, do you for one second actually believe had United actually played to their capabilities you would have been anywhere near scoring a goal? No, and somewhere in your dellusional head you know that to be true. Despite beating the Reds from the right side of the NW, you still languish behind. You deserved to win on Saturday, and fair play to Liverpool, but in my eyes the only result that mattered on Saturday was Aberdeen 1 - Hamilton 0. Blips like the 4-1 we witnessed on Saturday very rarely happen but it happened and United will regroup from this and storm the league from here on in. It just amuses me that you even think Liverpool are a team capable of actually winning the league  ???

I've not heard any United fan say they didn't care.   :-\

Saturday was painful viewing, getting turned over by Liversh*te at Old Trafford was soul-destroying.  The manner in which we lost was the most annoying thing though, as every goal came from a f*ck-up.  Vidic not putting his foot through the ball, Evra giving away the pen, Vidic's red-card and sending off for the freekick, then poor defending for the fourth.  In fact, every goal United have conceded against Liverpool this season have been gifts (VDS palming the ball off Brown and Giggs dithering for Babel's winner).

Take nothing away from Liversh*te, they fully deserved the win but if you put everything into context it wasn't as clear-cut as the scoreline suggests.

However, in saying all that, there's good reason that the majority of United fans didn't take it as badly as usual.  We're still in pole position, 4 points clear with a game in hand.  Win that and we'll be 7 clear, with the knowledge that Liverpool and Chelsea only have 27 points left to play for.  Will either of them take 8 more points than United in that time?   ;)

Fergie connection and all that :)

Says the fan of Liverpool and Notts Forest.  ;)

You may or may not be aware, but Aberdeen and Man United had many connections before Sir Alex Ferguson (Robo should take note of that as well  :wave:).  Although like many Aberdeen fans, she followed Ferguson's career when he went to United after all that he did for the club/city.

Man Utd one down at half time at Fulham and lucky it hasn't been more. Scholes sent off for deliberate handball on the line and Murphy scored the resultant penalty.

United have been fucking woeful, only Park, VDS and Fletcher get pass marks. The rest have been truly awful. started with Rooney and Tevez on the bench and have just looked far too pedestrian.

Newcastle played well today, and maybe did not deserve to lose 3-1 but Arsenal were frightening in that 10 minute spell, and that goes for Gallas' 'defending' too.

Gera's goal was a phenomenal finish. I always think getting booked for a)shouting back to the referee or b) kicking the ball away are the two stupidest things you can get sent off for in Football. Rooney is an absolute tool for getting sent off.

To be honest, i've lost most of my hope for this season. We've been far too inconsistent and let down far too often, especially when we think the team can kick on and get a run going. Why this is, I dont know, but I think i'm waiting for the new season already. I can't believe i've said it, but I just don't see it happening for us this season  :(

I can't believe Liverpool actually won 5-0 today. Its absolutely nuts. The title race in England has been thrown wide open again!  :o

Was some finish by Gera but Ferdinand was miles off him, what the fuck was he playing at?  I know there was the possibility of the ball going to the back post but in the situation you have to get touch tight to the guy at the front and gamble that should the ball go to the back post that VDS will cut it out.  Ferdinand has been pish for ages and he really has to get his finger out.  Vidic was panned for his performance last week (and rightly so, he had a mare) but where was Rio then? He has to step forward and take more responsibility.

As for Ronaldo, what a whingeing cunt he is and again didn't kick his arse yesterday. Watched the game on Setanta Ireland and Lou Macari was giving him pelters all day which was actually quite comical.

Aye Ferdinand hasn't had the best of seasons by his standards. Really quite bizarre as I thought he was fantastic last season (or maybe season before that). Ronaldo also seems to have lost his way a bit recently and becoming more and more petulant. He really needs to sort that out and start scoring again. United's season is potentially about to turn rocky, so they need players to start stepping up to the plate! Two sendings off yesterday was not good at all, Villa's game next weekend shall be very interesting now as both teams will be looking to atone for errors made over the past few weeks.  :-\

He was exceptional last season, no doubt about that. Seems to have concentration problems as well as a crumbling spine.

It would really be to United's advantage if O'Shea, Ferdinand and Evra would stop trying to out-spastic each other.

I don't think it's anything to do with Rafa's rant - Vida's was an automatic red, as was Scholes, I'm not entirely sure about Rooney's right enough. And both penalties were stonewallers.

That guy knows how to play football, just wish he was still with us... quality in midfield and at the back, composed on the ball, could pass, tackle, head and read the game superbly well.  And to think Steve Paterson didn't want to sign him (Duncan Shearer insisted he did).

Yeah, I saw the game, and him. Like you it really did bring home how good a player he was and still is.

He totally commanded the midfield. God how much could we do with him back at Pittodrie now - mind you, being the excellent midfielder he is, JC would probably play him in goals  :-\

Not entirely sure about that, but it was a cracking game tonight.  It's probably better for United that they have to play for a win, rather than a draw.  Depends on injuries as well, Evans went off again tonight and if Rio isn't back, then that's bad news.

In the last two seasons, he's been in United's top five players in each of them in my opinion.  You look at how much better he is than Neville, O'Shea, Rafael... and the fact he won MOTM twice against Barca last season, set up the goal in the CL Final etc. And United have clearly missed him this season.

Haven't seen much of Rafael but he is a prospect from what i've heard. Never ever rated O'Shea or Neville but Yoonited fans seem to love Neville. Probably because he has always been a 100% player.

Rafael is a wing back, in my view.  Neville has always been a solid full back, but never really "that" good in the way his year was (Butt, Scholes, Giggs, Beckham etc). I'd pick Brown ahead of him every day of the week.  he's quick, reads the game well, he's strong, can tackle, cross, commanding in the air... cracking full back (considering he's actually a CB) for United and they've missed him hugely this season.

Strange how fans always have differing opinions but thats football. Saying that you'd see him a lot mroe often than I do. I know fans of other teams that still think Severin is brilliant  ;)

All I would say is "where have United looked most vulnerable this season?", and it's down the wings.  Brown's been a huge miss. 

I know for a fact that a captain of a top Scottish Club still thinks Severin is one of the top players in Scotland.



He's captain of Aberdeen.

You heard it here first.  ;)

Must admit that the United game last night was really open, surprisingly open especially for the first leg and to be playing Porto who have never lost at home to an English side, very tough task ahead.

The goals in the other match were amazing, both goalos that I would like to see more of in the British leagues sadly they never really happen.

I've put the bindippers/londonhunwanks game on cos the Barca one is dead now I think (cue another 4 goals going in!), but when did Skrtel all of a sudden start defending like a spastic?

"England's Brave" John Terry just headbutted Reina in the chest while going for a header and was booked for his troubles and is out for the next leg. Imbecile.

2-1 Londonhuns, ivanovic.

Atmosphere was brilliant though once again, just a pity its only the Kop that ever seems to the one in full voice! Pisses me off that plastic Norwegians walk around outside the ground with Liverpool / Chelsea scarves on though! Bell ends! Fair enough, European side, but another fuckin English side!!!! Fuckin shocking!!!

London next week though, I haven't cancelled my flights, so I'm pretty confident we can do them down there!

Tell me where the relationship is FJ. I don't get that. Are Everton now the equal of Dunfermline and Queens Park? And we're Man Utd? Queens Park, for fucks sake, seriously? Jesus wept.

Jesus didn't weep because he was hard as fuck.

It's a cup competition anything can happen.
I didn't watch the game because I couldn't give a fuck about English football.

Are you going to cry now?

We lost 4-2 on penalties and so did Man U. It was fake mock outrage. Knee jerk reaction. Call it what you want.
Jesus got a little bit of piss in his pants. ;)



I think you'll find he did.

You're right, it is a cup competition, anything can happen. But for the same shitey thing to happen three seasons on the spin?  That's not luck (on the good or the bad side of it). As much as you may wish to kid on to yourself, if you're a top level club going out on penalties to a lower league side, that is still shite, whether it's on penalties or not.

You can laugh at the "JMG" mob all you want (and we all do, of course), and laugh at the guys on here who have English teams (do you not have an Italian one?), but you can't argue that Calderwood's record in the cups isn't fucking diabolical. Believe it or not, that happens to hurt a few of us on here.  Don't have a go at us for that.  Cheers.

I do follow Roma but I am not banging on about them as some sort of consolation for Aberdeen not winning anything. Not that Roma have won anything for a while.

So your gripe with folk liking English sides is that those English sides may win something?  Crikey.

Anyway forgive me for banging on about Roma there but we all know that we have lost to lower league opposition. Just move on it happened. Put it out of your heads and live in the present. There is still stuff for us to play for and that is what you should be focused on. Aberdeen fans are always being told they live in the past. Well the Dunfermline game was in the past.

So how does that work exactly?  Be continually shite all you like, because as soon as you are, it's in the past and we'll forget about it? Really?  Sorry, it doesn't work like that for me, surprisingly enough.
I dearly wish we get Europe. If we get it I'll be up celebrating all night, no doubt.  That doesn't mean I should be happy with our lot though.

I thought it was clear the gripe was the banging on about it.

You move on. As will most JMG who are banging on about not going back next season. When we all know they have very little else to do with their time so they will be back. It's all posturing.

I move on anyway because it's not the be all and end all in my life, does that mean i'm then happy or even content with it? It doesn't change my opinion. It may just mean that my anger has subsided a bit (as it clearly has done since the QF).

Real 2-2 with Getafe, Getafe went 2-1 up two mins ago with a good goal on the break. Guti has just equalised with a brilliant free kick.

Pen to Getafe! Red card for Pepe for volleying someone while they were on the ground after bringing them down for the pen. What an idiot. Could have received 3 red cards at once there.

Casillas saves the pen! guy tried to chip it down the middle and Casillas was wise to it!

Great entertainment but I'd imagine that neither set of fans will be particularly delighted about their teams conceding 4 goals each.

Almost all of the goals were very well taken, although the very poor defending led to each one. I can't help think that if this were a SPL match we'd start getting ridiculed about having a 'mickey mouse league' (which on further thought it pretty much is!)

Quite possibly. I do have a feeling that Barca won't win the league by the margin they deserve to, and I do think Real may take them at the Bernie. Higuain is in fantastic form, he's a player I've liked since he signed but he's been criminally underused until this season (despite scoring the league winning goals in previous seasons). The problem Real have is midfield. Guti was tremendous last night, but he's too slow now, so unless he plays with Lassana Diarra and Gago/possibly van der Vaart I can't see him playing against Barca.  Problems now defensively too, wouldn't be surprised if Pepe is suspended, may mean Ramos in the middle.  Is Salgado fit for right back? Robben is out for approx two weeks, he may make it.  A lot could depend on that.

The Real Madrid defender Pepe has been left "devastated" and "disillusioned" with football in the wake of Tuesday's derby clash with Getafe where he "lost control" after conceding a late penalty and being sent off.

Pepe was shown a red card and had to be escorted off the pitch by team-mate Iker Casillas after twice aiming kicks at the prone Javi Casquero, whom he had just pushed over to concede an 87th-minute spot-kick. He also struck Juan Albin in the face.

Pepe publicly apologised for his actions after the game but the Portugal defender is still facing a lengthy ban, with Spanish media suggesting he could be ruled out for the final six games of the season while the Getafe president Angel Torres has called for a 10-match suspension. Whatever ban he is handed, though, Pepe insists he is already suffering the worst punishment.

"I've been in football several years and it's been the worst day of my life as a player and as a person," he told Marca. "I've never felt like I did on Tuesday. Now I have to try to move on."

The incident came during a frenetic final 10 minutes at the Bernabéu and just moments after Guti looked to have salvaged a draw for the home side by firing home a free-kick to tie the scores up at 2-2.

But Casquero, having broken through on goal, went tumbling inside the box under Pepe's challenge and the referee immediately pointed to the spot, giving Getafe the chance to all but end Madrid's title challenge. Pepe then launched his attack on Casquero and Albin that has left him facing an extended ban.

"I'm devastated and very sad. I feel disappointed with myself. The only words I can find right now are to apologise to the players and their families, to the fans and to my team-mates," the 26-year-old continued. "I didn't recognise myself at that moment. I lost control for a few minutes. I wanted to win the game so we could continue fighting for the league.

"I've seen the incident repeated and I insist I don't recognise myself. I was only aware of what I did at the end of the game. That's why I spoke to the press immediately to apologise to everyone. I'm human and everybody has a bad moment in their life, but I can assure that this is not going to happen again. I also have a family and I wouldn't like them to suffer for what I've done."

Pepe also admitted that he had lost all enthusiasm to play. "If I have the opportunity to continue playing football, I'm going to try to do things in the best way possible. But if I feel that I'm not in the right state to return to playing, I will continue with my normal life and try to do something else to support my family."

When asked if that meant Pepe was suggesting he might leave football, the defender said: "At this point I have no desire to do anything. I've been deeply affected. I'm going to wait and see what happens with the sanction. It's been very tough for me.

"I've acted badly, but I don't think that my whole career should be judged by one action. I'm very sad and right now I have no desire to get back to playing. Nobody knows how I feel. I'm depressed and I don't have the words to describe how I feel. The biggest punishment that I could receive is what I'm feeling now."

The good news for Pepe is that Madrid still managed to beat Getafe despite that late penalty and the defender's red card. Casquero's poor spot-kick was saved by Casillas and then, as the game entered stoppage time, Gonzalo Higuain scored a brilliant winner to give Madrid a 3-2 victory that allowed them to stay within six points of leaders Barcelona with six games to play.

We are both kinda right and both kinda wrong, K?  Put it this way I would struggle to find another defender that suits Rio perfectly and i would struggle to find one that suits Vidics perfectly aswell.

Great news, also I posted at 0-2 down on two other forums United would wion 3-2, YAY ME.

I do actually agree with that, they're the perfect foil for each other and they are probably the partnership closest to Miller and McLeish that Fergie has had down there.

However, if you cast your mind back to when Roy Keane left United, what did he say about Rio?  That he wasn't the player he thought he was and in general that was the feeling at Old Trafford, there was a lot of grumbling going on about his performances.  His best seasons have coincided with Vida being there.  Vidic obviously feels more comfortable with Rio next to him, but I'm inclined to say that Rio needs Vidic more than vice versa.

My choice of celebration would be to throw an imaginary grenade in to the rangers end, hit the deck and cover my ears. Of course a real grenade would be far more substantial.

5-2, Berbatov

For me ferdinand has improved greatly in the past few years.  My biggest problem with him was he totally fancied himself as the next beckenbauer.  Vidic alongside him has been a big part in his improvement but i think as he's matured he's wound his ego in a bit and realised that playing to your strengths is way more important than for your own glory.

With regards to vidic and ferdinand being fergies best pairing since miller and mcleish agree, dont think its unfair to put pallister and bruce up there as well though, at least in the same ballpark anyway.

Whilst I agree, I thought at the time of his signing and think it has been proved that Vidic has been Fergie's best signing for United. But I agree, both play better alongside each other rather than one with another.

Some stats on the 4 different centre back pairings United have had, which hopefully backs up my argument to a degree:

Quote
Vidic & Ferdinand have played together 20 times and United have recorded 13 cleans sheets. Vidic & Evans have played together 8 times and recorded 7 clean sheets. Ferdinand & Evans have played together 3 times and recorded no clean sheets. Evans & O'Shea have played together once and failed to record a clean sheet.

I was having this conversation the other day and totally agree. However, earlier in the season Cheltenham were visited by Millwall. After one of their players scored he ran to the home end knocked the chips out of one of the lads who stands at the front before giving a really high pitched whoop. He never got a card but if that's isn't text book inciting the crowd...

So statistically, Vidic and Evans are the future?  :o  I rate Evans, think he's a fantastic player and certainly doesn't look out of his depth at all!

Baggy, I would expect nothing less from those South of the river cunts ;) Bit harsh knocking someones food in the opposing end anyway! Certainly more inciting than taking your shirt off.

Portsmouth hit the post with about ten mins to go. Three points behind Hull now, I reckon Hull will get pulled back into the bottom 3, so maybe the survivor will be the victors of Boro-Newcastle in two weeks time!

They were saying on SSN this morning that Fergie may start with Rooney, Tevez, Berbatov and Ronaldo.  Presuming Rooney and Ronaldo out wide, and would have to be one of Fletcher and Anderson in centre midfield with either Carrick or Scholes I would imagine.  Not sure how true that is, I thought he'd have started Park to help out Pat Rice Evra considering how Evra has been getting ripped a new one by all and sundry recently and if Walcott plays it could be another tough night for him.

Surely the minder is Nicky Butt, though, who actually played fairly well (and I believe he's been voted Newcastle's player of the year).  If you're a fan though, it must be hugely frustrating, as you say, a team full of internationals (and not Scottish Internationals) and they put in such an insipid performance especially when they are so close to dying, basically.

Well taken by O'Shea. Almunia has been tested a few times already.

Can't believe it was only one nil. Would expect the same line up except Park in for Tevez in the second leg.  Amazing how Sky have now spun it so that United are the underdogs and Arsenal are the surefire favourites!!

He's fucking garbage!  I watched the game with one of my best mates who is a Dandy but he's an Arsenal man too, he fucking hates Adebayor, totally hates him.  Adebayor said today that Vidic is the Hardest and toughest defender he's ever played against.  I believe that, Adebayor ran away from Vida all night.  Embarrassing.



When he can be arsed he's brilliant. He hasn't been arsed this season. Last season he was almost unmarkable.

Amazing how Sky have now spun it so that United are the underdogs and Arsenal are the surefire favourites!!

Indeed. Utd abosutely horsed them in the first half last night so I've no idea why Arsenal should be favourites next week just cos their keeper made some good saves. Can't see Arsenal keeping a clean sheet or scoring three goals in the second leg.

Was working and missed the game.  just watched the highlights and looked like utd didnt give them a sniff. You would expect arsenal to have a little more backbone but its instantly apparent that they missed arshavin a great deal last night.  Not that im complaining, i cant see arsenal being strong enough to score and not concede at the emirates.  Barca are still favourites for the other leg as chelsea did hee haw on tuesday, touch wood we might actually get a final with two teams who like to attack rather than counter attack.

Good win for Man United today. Keeps the pressure on the scousers, hopefully they will buckle this weekend.

I was going to watch the tim game in The Halt bar on Woodlands, walked past it earlier today and saw some dodgy characters that looked like casuals, so thought better of it.

Was always going to be a tough season and Boro had one of the tougher run ins, luckily not as bad as the zebras! Not over though and someone usually makes a late surge, I actually reckon Boro will stay up. Hull don't look like getting a point anywhere and the zebras have a cunt of a run in, the game at St James Park could very well sort it out.

They're only 3 points behind Hull and four behind Sunderland, but both of them have still to play this weekend. After this weekend there's three games left.

Birmingham are one up at Reading, if it stays like that I think they're promoted.

Villa one up at half time against Hell City.

Geovanni and Daniel Cousin had to be seperated by coaching staff on the way to the tunnel as Geovanni complained about Cousin not making a run to the back post towards the end of the first half.  Wouldn't expect Geovanni to stand much of a chance against him, but even on what he's done in the rest of the game and how was at the huns, it's clear Cousin has anger management issues.

It's a dangerous game for United tonight. Ferguson's hinted he'll sit back and hit them on the counter attack but I'd be loathe to invite Arsenal on to any team at the Emirates. An early goal for them could really get their tails up. If United get a goal it is surely over and would knock the stuffing out of Arsenal and open it up even more for United, so I hope they go at Arsenal from the off.

I don't think sitting back is the right way to approach this game at all. Arsenal will be all guns blazing. Look at what happened last time United sat back at the Emirates!

There is no danger that man utd are going there to sit in. ferguson is expecting arsenal to try and go toe to toe with them as opposed to hitting utd on the counter as they tried at old trafford but this is not the arsenal side of five years ago that was accomplished at dominating games from midfield.  Fabregas is great player but he is not of the same stature as viera who was the key to so many of arsenals wins back then and i've yet to be convinced by denilson alongside him.   Utd have so many more options in every department that i just cant see past them tonight

Shocking tackle from the elephant washers son ;) he should have been sent off for that tackle. I just hope they get that red card rescinded, because Fletcher had a great game, and that was a phenomenal tackle.

Funnily enough, I was comparing him to Scholes earlier on, seemed to be going in for a few potential Scholes-esque tackles. Could well end up missing his chance in the final too.

His studs were up from the minute his foot left the ground. He was fucking at it.  At least if he got a red it would actually have confirmed he had turned up over the two legs as he appeared to run away from Vidic in the first leg and just appeared to do fuck all in this one. ;)

Was never a sending off - would have liked Fabregas to stand up and tell the ref he got the ball but I guess that was never going to happen

Obviously not as honest as Arshavin then.

You have to take your hat off to man utd tonight.  The first five minutes was real back to the wall stuff and to go up the other end and score 2 goals so quickly (regardless of mistakes) was truly the mark of champions.  The third goal was a delight to watch, textbook counter attack.  Alas though you cant help but be gutted for fletcher, i truly thought he was the best player on the park tonight.   The guy was everywhere making tackles and linking up play, it was wee bit reminiscant of keane against juventus in the 99 semi final and he also missed the final of course.  The post match interviews are on the beeb website and worth watching, i was actually impressed with wenger for once as he showed some humilty.  Fergie says that the ref has the option to put down in his report that he made a mistake and that there might be a loophole for fletcher, we can but hope.  He's had the season of his life and changed all but the most retarded gloryhunting man u fans mind about him and if any player in that squad deserves the chance to play in that final its him.  Lets hope for footballs sake barca do the business tommorow

They're the rules unfortunately.

I thought up until Fletcher got sent off the ref was giving Man Utd absolutely every decision.  Take nothing away from United though, they thoroughly deserved their win.

If Barcelona make it through it should be cracking final.

I see that cunt Graham Poll says the decision to give a penalty was right because "when Fletcher goes for the ball he knows he will bring Fabregas down in the process".  ???

Answers on a postcard becuase I'm fucked if I know what that means.

If a ref looks at that (after the fact, on replay) and says it's a penalty then I no longer understand football.

At the time it was understandable that the penalty was given and he was subsequently sent off (angle and split second decision) but to have no right of appeal is beyond shit.

Seconded.  Tried to say Essien's goal was as good as Zidane's at Hampden! It was a cracking strike but was never as difficult as Zizou's.  He doesn't understand that by constantly over-stating things he actually leads to doing the thing a dis-service.

It has been reported that internet death threats had been made against the Norwegian official and that he had been "smuggled out of the country" under police escort and advised to change hotels.

"Following media reports claiming threats have been made against the referee of last night's game, Chelsea Football Club would like to make clear that it condemns any form of threat against players, officials or supporters," the club said in a statement.

"If provided with proper evidence Chelsea will take the strongest action against any season ticket holders or members who have participated in this activity.

"Everybody connected with Chelsea is very disappointed with the events of last night. However we would stress that we have received no evidence that Chelsea fans are involved in any of the alleged threats reported."

"As a result of these reports we have also been in contact with the police who likewise had not received any complaints."

Chelsea fans were upset Ovrebo did not award them a penalty, despite several strong appeals, during the 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge that sent Barcelona into the final on the away goals rule.

Several players, notably striker Didier Drogba, remonstrated furiously with the referee after the tie, which was settled by Andres Iniesta's stoppage-time goal.

Swedish referee Anders Frisk retired after he and his family received death threats following his dismissal of Drogba against the same opponents in the 2005 Champions League.

Ovrebo told Aftenposten that he had been informed by UEFA not to make any comment on the furore.

"Because of the circumstances after the match, Uefa has asked me not to comment to the press," Ovrebo said.

Former international referee Graham Poll commented: "This morning he's being smuggled out of our country under police escort - this is a referee of a football match. That is a disgrace.

"When he booked in a hotel they had to change the hotel he was staying at because of the fear that maybe fans would find him."

Thats just ridiculous. It sounded like he had a bad game, but bloody hell, its not like he was an SPL referee ;) Anyway, I think its shocking anyone should receive death threats for a sport! I mind the English ref getting plenty of death threats from Poles after he wrongly awarded Austria a penalty last summer.

Anyway, caught the last half of the Hamburg-Bremen game. Very entertaining! Was it Shaktar that won the other tie?

Turns out, at full time, about 30 odd folk had a brawl, bottles flying everywhere outside, police came along with a helicopter monitering the situation!  :o

From the BBC

Quote
Police have appealed for witnesses after a large street brawl involving rival football fans in Glasgow.

It is understood about 100 Airdrie and Partick Thistle fans clashed in Arlington Street in the west end of the city at about 1420 BST on Saturday.

A 38-year-old man suffered a serious head injury but did not make a formal complaint to police.

Officers are checking CCTV and speaking to local businesses in a bid to identify those involved.

Sgt Marian Maclean, from the Violence Reduction Directorate task force at Strathclyde Police, said: "We would specifically like to hear from any eye witnesses, those who may have taken any mobile phone or digital camera images of the disturbance, or owners of business premises with CCTV which may have captured images."

Then, perhaps the most embarrassing moment of the season... Carragher made a cunt of it on the edge of his box (he'll get his mates to batter someone for it later), and Di Michele takes it away from him and into the area, dummies as if to shoot and Reina sits on his arse and as di Michele goes to go round him he just kind of falls over. Then claims for a penalty despite no one being anywhere near him. Clown.

add another. Fine finish by Anelka.  I reckon there may be a fair bit of pressure on Wenger to sign some big names this summer.  The money's there and he has to put his morals (as noble as they are) to one side so his side has a realistic chance of silverware next season.  There are grumblings amongst the Arsenal support supposedly about his position (craziness, in my opinion, but that's modern day football for you isn't it?) and if he chooses not to spend this summer they'll only increase.  I hate to say it as he is clearly a magnificent manager and coach, but he is in danger of undoing his "legend" status if they continue on the path they are.  In saying that, a major bonus for him would be van Persie staying fit for a whole season and getting rid of that waste of space Adebayor.

Manchester derby was bizarre yesterday. Didn't have that derby feel to it at all, but it was great to see Tevez score. I'd love him to stay next season, but I fear that there is little chance of it. Just carried on far too long. Rumour is that he maybe going to Liverpool  :o

The Arsenal - Chelsea game was a great game to watch. Some really well taken goals and played at a lightening pace! I really think they need to get rid of Adebayor. Doesn't seem to do anything for the team and certainly is not the striker they needed to step up to the plate post Henry.

Relegation hyperbole reaches a new level of massiveness

The end-of-season must-win football drama is too massive for the English language to manage



This is the time of the year when football adopts the language of WWE wrestling, when every day is Judgment Day, when you switch on the TV to watch a bit of live football and find yourself witness to some of the most significant events in the history of western civilisation.

Scarcely had we recovered from the Scandal of Stamford Bridge, which was so scandalous the ref had to be moved to a new hotel (possibly a Travelodge, not for his own safety but because it is the Uefa-sanctioned punishment for underperforming. Want shampoo? You ain't got it), than it was time for Drama in the Docklands, commentator Ian Darke's label for the League One play-off between Millwall and Leeds at the New Den.

Darke, veteran of countless big fight nights, speaks this language fluently, but I am not so sure about James Richardson on Setanta, who has dubbed today Must-win Monday, a reference to the channel's live coverage tonight of Newcastle-Middlesbrough.

As the last six matches for both teams have been described as "must-wins", this did seem to be underselling the cataclysmic once-in-a-lifetime mustwinningness of the evening.

It is, of course, a "massive match", as I am sure James is aware, but then so are most of the games involving teams at the bottom of the table at this time of the year, so I was grateful to Setanta pundit Kevin Gallacher for rather neatly distinguishing tonight's clash from all those other "massive" matches by declaring it a "massive massive" match.

Under Fifa rules, two massives is the maximum number permitted to be applied to any game, although I believe Sky reserve the right to deploy the three massive option for the Championship play-off final.

I was wondering if there was a reference in popular culture James could have employed to encapsulate the massive mustwinningness of tonight's game, but beyond the old blues song Stormy Monday, I was struggling. Short of borrowing Monday Night Raw from the world of pro wrestling, we may be stuck with Must-win Monday.

To help us understand the dimensions of tonight's encounter in the north-east, Setanta's Friday Football Show had a report from regional station Real Radio, where Malcolm Macdonald hosts a phone-in show called The Legends, a local-radio term for anybody who played more than half-a-dozen games for the local club.

It looked an entertaining show, and it was instructive to see how outspoken the Legends were compared with the mealy mouths on TV. Bernie Slaven, ex-Middlesbrough, summed up the state of play in the north-east perfectly ("They say this is a hot-bed of football. It's more like the sickbed of football") while a caller to Micky Horswill, representing Sunderland, cheerfully described Craig Gordon as "a bag of spanners". I am not sure what he meant, but it is the kind of muscular invective you rarely hear on Match Of The Day, for instance.

Supermac, himself, was uncompromising on the subject of Joey Barton: "It doesn't do the dressing room any good when you bring a convict into it," he said, "I wouldn't want one in the studios here where I work."

If hyperbole is not your thing, however, how about bathos, my favourite figure of speech? Looks like bath, sounds like one of The Three Musketeers, what is not to like?

My guaranteed destination for bathos is Transworld Sport on Sky, as in: "Berlin, one of the world's most captivating cities. While Berlin's architecture and open-air spaces reflect a city at peace with itself, the German capital's history is more turbulent. Captured by Soviet forces at the end of the second world war, the city was split into West and East Berlin by the allies. In 1961, amid the tensions between the two sides, the Soviet-controlled East built the Berlin Wall, a 140-kilometre structure that would divide the city for the next 28 years.

"Twenty years after the wall came down, battle lines are once again being drawn ... ", wait for it, " ... as the final four of European basketball's top club competition come to town."

I am a bit of a collector of Transworld Sport intros, which is a game you can join in with at home, even creating your own. An intro to tonight's match, for instance, might go something like: "As international capitalism goes into meltdown bringing with it the threat of widespread civil unrest, and the swine flu pandemic threatens the health of millions, Steven Taylor faces a late fitness test for Newcastle."

Not, you understand, that I am in any way underestimating the massiveness of the evening.

The commentary was nauseating.  Yeah I get that they like their football in Newcastle but the sycophantic bullshit about their passion outstripping that of any other set of fans in the country is just that, bullshit.  Didn't sound so bloody passionate the other week and other than deluded messianic hysteria for the likes of Shearer and Keegan I don't see what makes them any more passionate than Liverpool, Aberdeen or even Stenhousmuir fans.

Watching the Barca-Osasuna game, 17 year old Muniesa of Barca has been given a straight red for a tackle that was no more than a yellow.  It's ashame for the guy, he'd only been on for half an hour and is in tears going off the pitch.  You really need to wonder what games refs watch a lot of the time.

EDIT: A Barca fan just ran on the pitch to remonstrate with the ref! He got right up to him and starting pointing at his own head as if to say "You're bonkers!"  ;D

They certainly upped their budget this season.

Their previous finishes from 2000-2001 onwards are:

9th, 10th, 8th, 10th, 9th, 15th, 15th, 5th, 1st

The title is their first honour.

£10m on Barzagli, also brought in Zaccardo and Benaglio to name a few.

They've spent money but judging by some other teams that are up there, maybe the Bundesliga is the most competitive league in Europe right now?

Falkirk were very pretty but effin' toothless. And yet still managed to make RFC look less than average.

It's a sad indictment of the Huns mentality that 1 -0 up in a cup final , against a team that barely escaped relegation, they have their striker playing right back, and then bring on a OAP defender and stick him up as a forward.

Have to add that group 9 is the only group with 5 teams so don't be fooled by the points that other second place teams have because not all their results are taken into consideration.

Indeed, many of the huge totals accumulated by other second placed teams, include 6 points registered home and away to bottom ranked teams like San Marino, Andorra, Leichtenstein, Malta, Faroe Islands etc, etc, which will be eliminated from the calculations when deciding the 8 highes scoring second placed teams.

Winning at home against Macedonia and away in Oslo, would give us a final points total of 13 (assuming we are raped by the dutch), with no points lost.  In reality you'll be pitching our score against the second placed, from the groups which include whipping boys like Malta(group 1), San Marino (group 3), Liechtenstein (group 4), Andorra (group 6), Faroe Islands (group 7), who will all surely lose 6 points from their total.

For example, Northern Ireland finish second in group 3 with 18 points - however, Scotland will qualify for the playoffs ahead of NIR, as they will have 6 points, won against San Marino, removed from their final total.

Phew!

Michael O'Neill is the manager of Shamrock.

According to the commentators, Shamrock can be proud of keeping "the world's current best player" from scoring.  Have Real signed Messi?  ::)

Post by: BobbyBiscuit on July 20, 2009, 09:17:25 PM
Reigning doesn't necessarily mean current.

I would imagine the reason the commentator said "current" is because he won the World Player of the Year the last time it was decided. So from that point, he is correct.  I don't agree that Ronaldo is the best player in the world at the moment, Messi would be my choice too, but as long as he holds that title people will say things like that because it can be backed up.  Anything else, to a degree, is just opinion.

According to Hibs.net some hibs fans broke through to the Bolton section of the concourse and attacked families leaving the stadium early.  Also chucked some guy through a thorntons window.

Don't think too many Scottish sides will be getting invited back down next year

Eredivisie is a good watch, generally better than the Ess Pee Hell. The Bundesliga last year was tremendous, looking forward to seeing a lot of that again, fantastic stadiums with amazing crowds and brilliant, exciting football.

I would like to know what's going on with Carrick. he's been honking all pre-season then on Sunday before the match Fergie was asked why he wasn't picked, Fergie said "You'll have to ask him that." which suggests he's been up to something he shouldn't be. Anderson has a lot of energy and is generally good in a midfield 3 but is pretty annonymous in a 2.  If Hargreaves is finished (I reckon he is, you don't get rid of tendonitis and he's missed so much football already), Scholes is older, Carrick is playing like a big girl... he needs a strong midfielder in.  Fletcher is United's best midfielder at the moment, and no disrespect to the guy because he is a good player, but that shouldn't be the case.

Didn't see the games tonight, but Fletcher is not first XI United quality. And I know thats what you're getting at BB. But Fergie was kidding himself on that he wouldn't need to dip further into his budget this season. I actually think Ronaldo papered a lot of cracks by scoring a lot of crucial goals. But I have confidence in Fergie to do this. But he needs to get on it as soon as!

Not at all manc, I think Fletcher has been outstanding for United in the last year or two and it's getting to the point now where I would say he's first choice but it's more to do with who's playing next to him where the problem lies.  They miss Ronaldo of course, no team in the world wouldn't miss him, but United are better placed than most to cope... but the balance of the team seems all wrong at the moment.

Don't agree at all. Did you see the game against Chelsea at Old Trafford last season, or the Champions League semis? Fletcher's absence was a big reason for Utd's poor performance in the CL final.

What Utd need is a creative, goal-scoring player to play alongside Fletcher. Or get in a time machine and go back 10 years for the old Paul Scholes.

I just don't think he's consistent enough. I've always thought he was a good player and certainly worthy to play for United, just not been convinced. I do agree though, they are crying out for a creative midfielder ala Scholes.

Apparently the back up generator for the flood lights decided to go up in a puff of smoke, get the impression that the fire brigade are still in attendance purely as a precaution due to the crowd etc.

I'd imagine Uefa questioned whether the game would go ahead purely because one set of the flood lights aren't operational.

Watching the Besiktas-Man Utd game. Pretty poor, but what the fuck has happened to Michael Carrick? He's having a horrible season, even this early into it. Confidence and touch looks shot in equal measures - each is partly linked to the other of course but he's looking really like a shadow of his former self. 

Antonio Valencia is having a very good game though, think he could be a really good player.

Real Madrid 3-0 up away to Zurich, Wolfsburg 2-0 up against CSKA and Milan 1-0 up away to Marseille.  Everything else is goalless.

West Ham 1 Scousers 1

Carragher is having a mare, for a change. Almost cost his side a goal in the first couple of minutes then got skinned and gave away a pen, which West Ham scored but it looks like the taker slipped when hitting it and it came off his standing foot as well as the foot he was kicking with.

Torres scored a cracker for the scousers.

Never that confident about derby matches to be honest Manc, and the midfield worries me tomorrow. Scholes has been playing well but is obviously suspenders, Carrick has been fucking hellish this season and Anderson often goes missing in a 4-4-2. Maybe a midfield of Fletcher and Giggs? Not sure. United should win, but wouldn't be a surprised if it's a draw. As long as that wee prick Tevez doesn't score!

Aye it does worry me. But does Giggs play well for the whole 90 mins these days? Certainly not a bad option of him and Fletch. What gone wrong with Carrick this season? He's been woeful! I'm really not sure what sort of reception Tevez will get tomorrow. As much as I liked him, he's a city player now, and spoke a fair amount of shite in the press!
Title: Re: Todays fitba
Post by: BobbyBiscuit on September 19, 2009, 08:03:01 PM
I don't think Tevez will get a good reception at all. His bitching about not being played and then saying they'd have won the CL if he had started in Rome, the running to Ferguson with his ears cupped when he scored, the pish in the press he was spouting etc has turned a lot of people against him.

As for Carrick... he's been a slow starter in a couple of his three seasons there but he's never been this poor.  Needs a drastic turn around otherwise he'll be kicking his heels on the bench a lot this season.

Totally! Played with a bit venom, skill and attitude. Obviously the goals helped a lot. I couldn't believe how much extra extra time play was allowed to continue. Not that i'm complaining. Both of Bellamy's goals were corkers, albeit, the second from a stupid Ferdinand cock up. Really thought united had blown it until out of no-where Owen scores the winner! Have to say, this season Fletcher has improved immensely and was my motm for united. Driving runs, good tackles, and obviously the two goals. Giggs showed that he's still got it and was a joy to see, even if he did scuff one of his attempts.

That's the problem with Ferdinand, still making the same mistakes he did when he was a 20 year old. They've become less since Vidic came into the defence, but in the past 24 hours we've seen him and Carragher mess up. Had Vidic and Skrtl made those mistakes they'd have been hung out to dry by the media for it, but because it was the Englanders it's briefly mentioned and then not mentioned again.  Ferdinand is past his best, his pace has gone and that was his main redeeming feature.

Giggs and Fletcher were immense for United today, Fletcher is now United's mainstay in the midfield.  brilliant game, but the old ticker was fairly going towards the end!!

Craig Burley is a fanny, freekick with Rooney in the first half "why did he not have a pop from there, crying out to be hit at the keeper"

Now, on Giggs last freekick from similar distance to Rooney freekick "the shot was never on, poor effort".

Absolute FUD.

Aye, superb goal and Burley still moaned at Berbatov's involvement in it. Fanny.

Good to see Carrick has stopped playing like a big girl on downers.

I reckon that'll be Leonardo getting the tin tack at AC, they've had a horrible start to the season.  There are also a lot of rumours going around in Brazil that Ronaldinho is retiring at the end of this season. Some in Italy are shocked at that... they thought he'd retired some time ago...

Bobby, I thought Burley had a wee point with berba nae scoring there but he showed how GREAT a player he is when under alot of pressure, got the pass away one pass later the ball is hitting the net, I thought Berba coming on was a blessing, United started playing when he started with his tricks and flicks.

Too right, I was surprised to see Owen start to be honest. Especially since he didn't train yesterday, but as you said, United started to play, then I think Berba got marked out of the game in the second half. Was a highly entertaining game, end to end. Some frustrating moments such as Valencia's shots or united just lacking that final touch. But an enjoyable game and a fitting finish from Carrick. I hope he carries on playing like that and not how he started this season :thumbsup:

No, he didn't.  He just wants a moan so that he sounds like Andy fucking Gray.  There was absolutely nothing wrong with Berbatov's touch, at no point did it look as though he wanted to shoot. He laid the ball off well, but according to Craig "average player with a big mouth" Burley he still deserves to be slated for his play?  It's ok thanks, i'll make my own mind up.

I was agreeing with "he should be looking to score there" nothing more, nothing less Burley is far from the best.

berba mis-cued I thought, recovered well like.

I thought Carrick looked a bit suspect in the opening exchanges but certainly came on to a game later on.

Anyone else reckon Ferdinand looked far from solid last night?  I had an argument in the pub with my mate about it. I reckon Ferdinand's best days are behind him, surely it won't be long before SAF starts Evans in central defence with Vidic?

Totally agree about Ferdinand. Look at the 3rd City goal in the derby and how slow he was in chasing Bellamy, by the time Bellamy was in the box Ferdinand was grimacing with pain. I think his back is truly fucked and if his pace is gone then what does that leave you with? He's not a dominating centre half and it's not as if he reads the game exceptionally well and as last night showed he gets out muscled far too much.  Ferguson has Evans and Brown who can step in so they're not short of good centre backs.

Also think Vidic is looking like a player who hasn't had a pre-season, not quite as sharp as he should be, yet.
Title: Re: Todays fitba
Post by: manc_don on October 01, 2009, 09:53:32 AM
Agree with both the previous posts. Ferdinand looked suspect again, and when he did that pirouette in the box, my heart stopped, especially since United were pretty much dominant at the time. Hopefully Evans will make the step up permanantely soon.

BB you are also right about Vidic, looked a bit suspect at times, in particular at the start, which he acknowledged, but didn't exactly fill the team with confidence, especially when Ferdinand is playing the way he is.

Bent and jones have been in very good form recently and i'm not surprised that they got goals today against a poor Utd defence. As good as Berbatov's goal was, he was awful today only eclipsed by Nani - total poof!

Have to say i thought Berbatov was one of United's better players today MM.  Rooney was woeful.  Nani was even worse, how did he survive the hook?  I'm told that had Ronaldo stayed in the summer, he was to be sold to Inter.  Fergie is not convinced, and going on this form (he's been picked against the "easy" sides mostly) he'll be sold next summer.
As much as I love Paul Scholes, he's a red card waiting to happen these days and that's why he was subbed at half time.

There was very little attacking threat from Man Utd, and it showed that they missed a Tevez type player who will just run at the defence. I agree about scholes, but i'd say that in no way did he deserve a yellow for a rather innocuous 1st foul.
Title: Re: Todays fitba
Post by: BobbyBiscuit on October 04, 2009, 12:01:55 PM
When you see the replay of the Scholes yellow card you may change your mind MM. He tried to kick him twice, made sure he wasn't getting past him.

1718: What an incredible start... The Ukraine fans greet the kick-off by lobbing a load of lit flares into Rob Green's penalty area. The referee has no option but to stop the game as smoke billows across the Dnipro Stadium. Madness.

1729: PENALTY TO UKRAINE

1730: RED CARD England (Rob Green)

1732: Shambles, absolute shambles. Horrible mistake by Rio Ferdinand gives Artem Milevskiy a clean run on goal, and he pokes the ball past Rob Green and draws the foul. Clear penalty for Ukraine, and Green - largely thanks to Ferdinand's moment of madness - is sent off.

1732: MISSED PENALTY Ukraine 0-0 England

1733: David James comes on for the unfortunate Aaron Lennon, another player who might be cursing Rio Ferdinand right now. James goes the wrong way for the penalty but Andriy Shevchenko's effort clips the outside of his left-hand post. A huge let-off for England. Cue more flare-throwing.

1746: GOAL Ukraine 1-0 England
Ukraine goal: Glen Johnson gets in a decent tackle on the edge of the area but the ball comes out to Sergiy Nazarenko, whose ferocious shot comes off Ashley Cole (I think) to beat David James.

I know they lost a few, but it doesnt seem to have had a negative impact! (so far at least).

Listening to Sportsound on the way home from work.
Apparently Rangers two most valuable assets are Bain and Wattie if you listen to Traynor.
Chick Young also went fuck tits when it was suggested that the press were more than a little prostrate last night.  I never heard last nights press conference but apparently Chick asked a few mundane questions then went to let some other journos chip in only to be met with stoney silence, so Wattie asks if that was it, gets up and leaves.  You imagine if that was afc?  The first question would be about whether the manager was going to quit.  Traynor at least admitted Smith gets a far easier time than most managers, essential because he is "nice guy"

2-0 Liverpool.  Probably deserved victory for the professional grievers, United not really at the races today.  Vidic sent off for a third straight game v Liverpool, but I thought he played well today.  Rio on the other hand... man the fuck up Ferdinand.  Not the first time this season he's been out-muscled.

The ref was an utter joke.  Apparently Lucas is a "yellow card free zone", committed a shit load of fouls but was never booked.  Carragher should have been sent off (through the back of Rooney twice and then a foul on Owen when it looked as though he was through) no matter how you look at it.

West Ham v Arsenal coming up which I think could be a good game.  Although West Ham are down the bottom of the league they always have a go and play decent football.  If they get the first goal it could be a really open game.

Bolton beat Everton 3-2...not sure if that's a shock or not!

Also Ferdiand, I knew he was going to make a fuck up today, and Nani is just scary bad.

I thought the ref got the big decisions right. Owen being brought down only a yellow because he was going away from goal. Vidic committed a very similar foul minutes later and got the same punishment. I don't know what he was complaining about.

I hope this shuts people up somewhat about Liverpool's reliance on Gerrard. If Liverpool can do that without Gerrard surely to fuck Man Utd can function without Fletcher.

I agree, Carragher's yellow was prob just a yellow, but what about the TWO times he went through the back of Rooney? At least one of those was a yellow, if not a red for both of them. Refs are supposed to book players who go to ground and then go through the back of players. Carragher did it twice but wasn't booked. Joke.  Lucas must have committed about 8 fouls and yet was never booked. Care to explain that?

Vidic deserved to be sent off, he took one for the team (at 1-0 down), I think he was probably complaining that Carragher was getting away with murder, as he seemed to suggest after Carragher's booking that had it been him he'd have been off.

Liverpool beat United last season at Anfield without both Gerrard and Torres. Does that mean that Liverpool don't need torres and Gerrard? If you think it does, you're tripping. Over the course of a season, Liverpool need Torres and Gerrard, simple as that.

I thought the booking for Evra and Vidic were very soft, Vidic, only got booked because he kept trying to win that ball after he had fouled Torres, he may not have heard the whistle, Evra got a warning for Torres falling over his own feet and then booked for his second foul, Lucas made ataleast 5 tackles that all went unpunished.

@manc_don - See the betting thread in football chat, free money at half-time from the bookies.  2/1 for Alcorcon to win at -2 goals when they were 3-0 up.  Crazy.

The Real team playing tonight - Dudek, Arbeloa, Metzelder, Albiol, Drenthe, Diarra, Guti; Granero, Van Der Vaart; Raul, Benzema

Pellegrini to be sacked shortly, Zidane will be manager there I think.  Unless they go for Scolari or Mourinho?  This Alcorcon are in the third tier of Spanish football.

I agree, Carragher's yellow was prob just a yellow, but what about the TWO times he went through the back of Rooney? At least one of those was a yellow, if not a red for both of them. Refs are supposed to book players who go to ground and then go through the back of players. Carragher did it twice but wasn't booked. Joke.  Lucas must have committed about 8 fouls and yet was never booked. Care to explain that?

No not really. I don’t remember either of incidents you mean. Unless you mean the one inside the penalty box where Carra got the ball quite clearly? Player gets ball = good tackle and therefore no foul. It’s not complicated.


Liverpool beat United last season at Anfield without both Gerrard and Torres. Does that mean that Liverpool don't need torres and Gerrard? If you think it does, you're tripping. Over the course of a season, Liverpool need Torres and Gerrard, simple as that.

It’s not me but everyone else that is forever harping on about how Liverpool are a 2 man team! Of course Liverpool are stronger with them but can operate without them. How is that not clear?

But what is their real average crowd.  There is no way they have had an average of 58,000 so far this season.  There have been big gaps in any game I have seen them play, yet strangely the come up with 96% capacity.  Don't know why they insist on counting season ticket holders who aren't there as everyone knows they are at it.

Thing is, both Voronin and Babel are examples of Benitez's inability to get the best out of players. Both are actually very good footballers, but for some reason or another its not working there.

Babel has been fucking gash though. He promised so much and delivered so little. I guess you could blame the manager if you really wanted. He's good at adding to the goal tally when Liverpool are already winning but he can't come on and make a difference when it's needed.

Personally I'm not calling for Rafa's head yet. I think he's been unlucky with Injuries. He could really do with getting Aquilani fit and Gerrard is a miss for any team long term. Degen's sending off didn't help which was never a sending off.

I think you can blame the manager for playing him out of position. Babel is a player who plays through the middle but Benitez continually plays him out wide.  Why buy the guy if that's what you're going to do?  Appears he wants another version of Dirk Kuyt...

Dirk started his Liverpool career plying upfront thought and he proved himself to be useless. He's better where he is. Babel does get opportunities upfront though and he simply doesn't take them. He could well do with a sustained run in his favoured position though.

I have a fair few Liverpool supporting mates down south, I usually go down a couple of times a season to Anfield.  For about 3 years I've been saying Liverpool won't win the League under Benitez. I'm not saying he's a poor manager as he's clearly not, but I just don't think he has enough know-how to win the League in England.

Babel should be better. He cost a hefty sum. Voronin is the type of player that Rafa had to get in because he was available for free and money is toight. Whether it's Rafa's fault or not my patience with Babel is running out.
Title: Re: Todays fitba
Post by: BobbyBiscuit on November 02, 2009, 04:41:06 PM
Voronin is clearly a good player though, scored a lot of goals in the Bundesliga last season. Babel also looks like a much better player in the few times i've seen him with Holland. A lot of it points to  Benitez not being able to get the best out of the players he has.

Jermain Penant said last week that although Rafa is a good manager, he tries to control every little thing and never lets players play to how they like to.  He's so obsessed with this ProZone stuff too. Kenny Dalglish has said that if he was a player under Benitez he'd never get a game because his ProZone stats wouldn't be good enough. Science will only do so much for you, ye know?

Gutted, nae fighting  :( But a cracking strike for the equaliser  ;D

Huns are in the denial:

Quote
Trouble at the match between Unirea Urziceni and Rangers was described by supporters chief Andy Kerr as a "minor incident''.

There was unrest as Gers fans attempted to enter the Steaua Stadium before kick-off, while reports suggested some away fans ripped up seats during the match. Kerr, president of the Rangers Supporters Assembly, blamed poor organisation.

He told Sky Sports News: "There was a bit of pressure at the front. Spray was used, which was used before the start of the match, and I think people reacted to that. I wouldn't say the Rangers fans did anything wrong. The organisation was very poor.

"(Before the match) they had two cordons of barriers to let people through. They used the spray there on more than one occasion and people were quite distressed by that.''

Kerr did not see any fans ripping up seats, but stressed such behaviour was unacceptable. "We don't condone it, we don't want to see it, but the vast majority of people behaved impeccably,'' he said. "In the big scheme of things, (it's) a minor incident.''

Kerr recalled a similar incident at an away game in 2005. "The last incident I could remember was in Bratislava when we played Artmedia,'' he said. "They almost seem surprised that we all turn up about a half hour before the game.''

Based on that display, if Fergie does eventually move to sign him (as the commentators were saying would happen throughout the match), I reckon ManU would finally have found the quality keeper they've been craving since Peter Schmeichel (although I would say Barthez was equal to Schmeichel, but in different ways in that his strengths were in different areas to Schmeichel's strengths)

Van der Sar has been a fantastic keeper for United. I thought Barthez was next to hopeless for them.

Barthez was amazing when he was up for it. Admittedly some of his performances were shocking, including his attempt at out-witting Di Canio in the FA Cup.

But there's countless times Barthez has simply been unbelievable. He's one of these keepers with the ability to catch the ball in situations where the vast majority would be forced to punch the ball away or turn it round for a corner. Barthez just had a knack for making the ball cling to his hands like velcro.

Barthez's best days certainly weren't in a United shirt. Seemed to bottle it in a few big matches, one at Highbury in particular. He was a good keeper in general, just not at Old Trafford.

I remember thinking at the time that was one of the few transfers that Fergie got wrong.  Should have signed van der Sar then, barthez was far too unreliable.

yup apparently Sky muted the volume during the mins silence and you didn't even hear the whistle go to mark the end of the minute.  On the radio, from about 10s in, you could clearly hear celtic fans singing one of their dour, monotonous dirges that passes as a folk song.  Apparently those fans inside the stadium observed the minute silence but it was folk outside the ground who were making the noise.  No doubt the excuse will be that they were outside and didn't know what was going on but clearly they avoided heading in for that very reason, and it's hardly like the mins silence will have come as a surprise to any of them

I agree with the first bit - there was no contact but great tackle? Fuck off. Carsley A; never had to go diving in because there were people queueing up block NGog and B; never got anywhere near the ball either.

Not denying it was a dive but Carsely should have shown more experience there. Stupid attempt at a tackle in a stupid area and never got near the ball.

This result isn't a good one for us. Thats for sure.

Table as it stands:

1     Rangers             11     13     25
2    Celtic            12    11    24
3    Hibernian            12    8    22
4    Dundee Utd    11    8    22
5    Motherwell            12    3    19
6    Aberdeen       12    -1    15
7    St Mirren        12    -3    13
8    St Johnstone    12    -5    12
9    Hearts            12    -5    10
10    Kilmarnock            12    -9    9
11    Hamilton             12    -11    9
12    Falkirk              12    -9    8
   
Really needed a win against Motherwell, I'm wary of a sizable gap building between us and 4th place. Still though, Hearts for relegation anyone? :D


I'm starting to feel that any team beating the OF is good for the league this season. We are not going to do to much this season as we are in a process of rebuilding so I want to see the OF kept close to the rest so we can put to bed any notion that they are significantly better than us. That way, they may get dragged back into the pack psychologically and players, young ones particularly, will be less inclined to jump to them so quickly.

I watched it on TV (part-time Fulham fan me!  ;) ) I've enjoyed watching their UEFA Cup run, reminds me of watching Middlesborough's Cup run a few years ago. Craven Cottage looks alot like Tynecastle on TV, all the fans right up at the action, wouldn't mind a pre-season friendly there next season!! (I can dream)

They were saying on TV that the CSKA boss wasn't there for the first half as he was held up due to some problem with his passport? He got there at half time and I think we both see what that did for the team!!

And, why the fuck do they have a player called Michel Platini!!

You decide.

I've evaluated the situation.

I don't really think you'd sit in on a Thursday night and watch CSKA v Roma, so I don't think thats true.

So, you must have just made it up.

I suspect you may have got lucky though and be right.

FJ has a soft spot for Roma. But aye its like Tynie, though Topcorner thought was like Tannalice :\ The Putney End (which was where we were sat) was the Shed he said, just bigger, better and so therefore clearly not! Did I mention all I had to pay was £7.50! :D Oh and we had the best pies ever! Full of steak meat and actual thick gravy. Only downside was having to wait about 20 mins for them.

I'll try and post a video of the CSKA fans later this weekend, they were quite amusing.

Quote
Rangers chief executive Martin Bain has hit back in the increasingly hostile row over prices for their rearranged fixture at Tannadice.

Dundee United are charging half-price on 15 December after the abandonment of the clubs' meeting on 1 November.

Rangers had hoped ticket stubs for the original match would guarantee free entry for fans.

United chairman Stephen Thompson claims Bain's attitude has been "disgraceful" provoking an angry response from Ibrox.

"After being accused that I used the AGM as a platform to criticise Dundee United and cover up the club's issues, the reality is that the volume of complaints and the tremendous ill-feeling that was being vented towards Dundee United's decision was a matter that simply could not be ignored," said Bain in a statement.

"It is very disappointing as our position could not have been made clearer at every stage since the game was called off.

"There is obviously written correspondence between the clubs that confirms this.

"I deeply resent the suggestion that I misled shareholders at our AGM. That is wrong and offensive and I will be taking the matter further.

"I still maintain that football fans have been considered last by this decision."

The visitors were leading the Premier League match 1-0 at half-time when referee Mike Tumelty called a halt to proceedings due to a waterlogged pitch.

Thompson insisted fans were never told their original ticket stubs would be valid for the replay and reduced pricing for the rescheduled match was a fair reflection of the operational costs incurred by the Tayside club.

Rangers quickly released a statement expressing their disappointment at the decision and followers of the Glasgow side have been slow to purchase tickets for the rearranged date.

At Rangers annual meeting on Monday, Bain was quizzed by shareholders about the on-going squabble.

"We did take up the fight because I was disgusted and angry at the attitude of Dundee United," was his reported response.

"The game was called off at half-time and I was standing beside the chief executive of the Scottish Premier League (Neil Doncaster) and the chairman of Dundee United (Thompson) and I said to them at that time, 'I hope that you will see sense and make sure that our supporters retain their ticket stubs and get back in for nothing'."

Thompson denies that Bain ever said this in his company, which appears to have outraged the Ibrox man.

"It is interesting that Martin Bain was disgusted and annoyed with Dundee United over tickets but never used such strong language after Manchester or Bucharest about his own fans," added the United chairman in reference to crowd disturbances involving followers of Rangers.

Im wondering how he is going to take this further? Encourage his hooded hordes to trash dundee perhaps?

Spanish football - Barca ahead in the Barcelona derby thanks to a very dubious spot kick. Only 12 mins left. 

Tony Adams is in the studio and he said:

"Ibrahimovic is as good a forward as Marco van Basten was".

Ach, always thought he was a good if inconsistent player.

Just never had him as one of the best in the world until I'd saw him with Barca this year.

2134: FULL-TIME Liverpool 1-2 Fiorentina

 
Fiorentina goal: Young Liverpool defender Stephen Darby is caught in possession by Juan Vargas who crosses for Alberto Gilardino to seal victory for the Italians - and top spot in Group E. That is Liverpool's worst points tally in Champions League group stage history.

Surely Thomson has just prepared Avril's speech for him today with these comments? Whilst probably not far from the truth, its surely going to fire the arabs up?

Quote
Thomson sees no Old Firm contest

Old Firm still clear of rivals - Thomson

Rangers midfielder Kevin Thomson expects the Old Firm to finish well ahead of the chasing pack by the close of the Scottish Premier League season.

"I certainly do think teams have got better in and around the Old Firm," said Thomson.

"And if teams want to talk about challenging that's an incentive for us.

"I'm not going to say that Celtic and Rangers will finish 20-25 points clear of the rest, but I'd be pretty surprised if they're not."

Thomson's former club Hibernian are just four points behind leaders Celtic, while Dundee United are four adrift of second-placed Rangers.

But the 25-year-old was dismissive of a sustained challenge from Tannadice or Easter Road.

"I don't think many people would be betting on any team breaking the Old Firm this year," he added.

"I've been in a situation, at Hibs, when we've had good seasons and the hype goes on 'the Old Firm are in a crisis, blah, blah'."

Rangers can go top of the table if they win their rearranged match at Dundee United on Tuesday.
   
This season we might find it a fair bit closer than it has been in previous years

"We are eager to get to the top of the league and stay there," added Thompson. "And if we can get a run going and points in front going into the Old Firm game at the start of next year, it would be a psychological boost.

"We want don't want to be chasing. We've been in that situation over the last couple of years and it's tough. It means added pressure going into games."

Like Thomson, Rangers boss Walter Smith has been impressed by Hibs and Dundee United and he is taking greater heed to the threat to the Old Firm's long-established dominance.

"I don't think we'll see that kind of gap," said Smith when asked to comment on Thomson's thoughts.

"This season we might find it a fair bit closer than it has been in previous years.

"I said earlier that the challenge to both Hibs and Dundee United was to keep going and you've got to say that both teams are doing that. They're doing exceptionally well.

"At the weekend, they both got draws and people are saying 'that's it', but that will happen to all the teams.

"If it's going to be tighter, then there will be more points dropped by all the teams."

I think you may be right. Its traditional for them to blow this period is it not ? Post NY fuck ups left right and centre. I suspect Hamilton will beat them on Saturday and Sir Craig will be crest fallen....again. Its a pity really because, petty hatred aside, we should be looking for anyone who can to break the dominance of the OF to do so. Despite laughing at UTD I did not want to see the huns beat them last night.

Yeah, around Christmas and into the New Year it all starts going south for them. They look a typical Levein side though, if they don't score from a set piece then they're pretty screwed and fairly easy to get the ball in behind them. Makes it all the more frustrating we never took our two exceptional chances against them at Pittodrie when it was 0-0.
 
However, I'd love to have Bauben and Gomis playing for the Dons. Gomis in particular is a cracking player.

1754: Now, about the idea that this match is meaningless... Scottish teams have performed abysmally in European competition this season and the country's co-efficient has taken a hammering. Celtic need to win to earn the two Uefa co-efficient points that might just keep Scotland ahead of Belgium.

1757: If Belgium's representatives continue to gather points in the Europa League and Champions League, they could move into 15th place in the rankings ahead of Scotland, meaning Scotland's league winners would have to play two or three qualifying rounds the season after next. Celtic v Arsenal again, anyone?

1846: Half-time Rapid Vienna 3-1 Celtic

1848: Sorry if I'm boring you with this co-efficient malarkey, but Anderlecht are winning handsomely at half-time at Ajax. This is not good news for the Scottish Premier League winners in a few years' time.

1849: My colleague Richard Gordon, speaking on Radio Scotland, has informed the listeners that Scottish teams have now conceded 49 goals in European football this season.

Both teams were pretty awful, the first goal was a joke from the ref but there were some pretty honking decisions going against Boro. That said, yes, they were fucking awful after that goal, there's nothing about them at all, all the senior players that were worth keeping are gone and that process had started even before relegation.

Rumours of a few signings down there and cash getting chucked at it.

Weekend before Xmas and it being -5 outside might have caused that. The fact that Zaragoza are at the bottom of the league too.

Have been to both StJames.com & the Riverside this season, and I reckon NUFC will win that league by a country mile (they still aint at permiership standard thou) and Boro, unless they invest in Jan will struggle to make the playoffs.

Apparently that was Aquillaini's second start in 3 days.  He signed for the dippers 5 months ago and hadn't started a game until 3 days ago (or so I'm told)... so maybe instead of blaming the player, Benitez wants to have a look at himself...

When i went to the carling cup game against arsenal, he looked decent enough. But that was only one game and i don't like watching the bin dippers as it is. I was more raging because it fucked my fantasy football team :( i thought torres was supposed to go under the knife?

McGhee will say something. The Arabs caretaker manager will pin McGhee's comments up in the United dressing room. They'll beat us, and they'll say "I didn't have to do much in the way of motivation - my counterpart did that for me"

However, it's about time we got revenge for the 4-0 thrashing they gave us back in the day when Deano got sent off 17 times. I'm still smarting from that defeat

Really? They are shocking attendances! Good to see Vidal making the bench for the second game in a row, was it a full strength City team? I always treated as cup games as a nice break from the regularity of the SPL. Would have thought the City game would have attracted a few more through the gates.

He can dismiss it all he wants but the facts are there. Has the SPL become a dirty league suddenly?

It is bad enough when players make a cunt of it (Grassi/Ifil/Miller) but when refs seem waaaay to keen to send players off, and they fucking have, it really is very disheartening and makes me want to stay in the house. No point in watching fitba where the ref has some sort of desire to become a prominent part of procedings by completely ruining a game. A good ref would be next to fucking invisible.

BigAl, my biggest worry is, that no-one with any power or sway seems to be bothered?!? So if the ones in charge won't/don't do anything about it we're pretty much fucked for the time being. Dallas and the SFA are being ridiculously pig headed. Call me cynical/realistic but until both cheeks of the infirm get done with the same inconsistent hand we seem to be getting dealt every game, there is even less likely of anything happening.

I've said this repeatedly this season, I don't think it's a coincidence this is the case considering Dallas is the ref boss now.  He was the most guilty of that in his last few years as a ref to the point it ruined matches on a consistent basis.

Agree BigAl, I think that cunt Lafferty was more deserving of a red card today than any of the Aberdeen players sent off this season.
But he only got a yellow. ???

On the same subject, what was Weir up to when he dived to the ground holding his face near the end of the OF game, and why did SKY refuse to show even one replay of the incident, and then choose to omit it from their highlights?
