Would be better in Shaka Hislop voice. One of my favorite pundits out here.
Ah interesting, was at Midtjylland a few years back when they were **** hot on set-pieces, but don't know how much of it was actually his doing - he was there Jan 2016 to March 2018 and I know Midtjylland themselves had a set-piece coach (Mads Buttgereit) who was there from Jan 2017 to June 2019... Funnily enough Mads was also the Danish set-piece coach at the Euros over Lars. Can't help but think you've hired the wrong Dane!
I'm absolutely devasted that I foolishly allowed myself to pour scorn on this unfortunate lady in what I misguidedly thought was an opportunity to rip the p*** out of gently mock the new owner of the much respected Premier League giant that is Newcastle- Riyadh Utd. I implore fellow forumites to ignore my earlier post and forgive my reckless attempt at humour. I can confirm that its sackcloth and ashes for me now.
Helpfully AS herself has sent me a private e-mail and offered an olive branch by way of a signed note with a picture of herself reacting to the original post, proving that she took this in her stride. She was perfectly happy for me to post that photo. Well done AS, truly 3 dimensional, you can see the glint in her eye here...
Hornets and Geordies United!
They have. Feel for Brighton. On the cusp and they have their manager and his staff disappear. He for one does not seem to care which leaves me hoping he falls flat on his face and Boehly has the finger out again. Then again he'll be richly compensated for 'failure'. Most Albion fans are very displeased.
I'm surprised I must say. It's a very big risk for both Chelsea and Potter. There is a chasm between managing the expectations of Brighton and that of Chelsea.
Moyes and Hodgson spring to mind. Very steady (well apart from with us) managers that couldn't handle the pressures at the top end.
Brighton are very hard to beat, but they've also struggled to win games. His win percentages for Brighton are surprisingly low - around 30% plus or minus.
Yes but he seems to have established them and they were signing some very decent young talents and building a very decent future. Do feel for them. Yet again one of the so called big six come in with money and do what they want to wreck another club. When you look where we are and they are after that memorable Vydra winner one is a well run club and the other is a shambles. Potter could have stuck with them and seen if he could make Europe and he would have his pick of jobs next summer. He's already lined up as a future manager of England and he's far more astute than Gareth Plank.
The biggest difference is that Brighton invested in this little-known part of the pitch called "defence".
I know, I've never heard of it either!
I can see Giaretta and Duxbury poring over the crossword right now. Begins with d ends with e seven letters across.
Not defending the Pozzos, after all, you can't say they have made the best use of their limited resources, but Brighton's owners are far richer, arguably we had already over-extended ourselves even before we had signed Sarr for big money
30% of wins is enough to stay in the league. Usually enough
Maybe their goal is to play in such a way that they don't get relegated.
Dennis might be getting a sense of deja vu .
To make it worse for him Sam Sturridge is ahead of him in the pecking order .
Bournemouth on the cusp of being bought by an American consortium, days after Norwich got significant investment from another US investor. Meanwhile Pozzo either can’t or won’t attract new investment for our club…
Not even Elton getting a few of his American friends involved .
Having said thar US owners have been patchy with their record here.
Just ask Sunderland fans tomorrow!
US investors are not always the best as they will generally want to see a profit made and dividends paid.
Middle East or Asian investments are generally more about ego and wanting to be the best so more likely to invest without expecting to see a financial return.
Just need to hit the magic 14 premier league clubs to be owned by Americans and they can vote away relegation. To make it a proper professional sport. Bournemouth could (if still in the league) relocate to somewhere with a bigger potential fan base - like Belfast.
What is the record for goals in a season because it’s going ?
Haaland hasn’t even got a World Cup to worry about either so will be well rested .
Calm down @Filbert
If Mr Rodgers had any integrity he'd walk away...
34 I think they said on BT Sport after the City game earlier. And that was with 42 matches per season. Or 0.8 goals per game - Haaland is on 1.57 goals per game at the moment!
Genuinely, could the Premier League unilaterally decide to scrap relegation? Surely the EFL would have a say too?
Not sure, as Andrew said - 14 is required to vote through any changes to the league format. But all the founding clubs signed a founders agreement on the formation of the league, I think from memory that relegation/promotion was a necessity but I'm not 100% sure.
Just a perfect storm of yet another humiliating defeat, nationwide grief and the big Morrisons near the ground running out of cheese cobs and Stella.
Yes but he doesn’t, so he won’t.
We’re down if we don’t do something about Rodgers soon. We’re still in big trouble even if we do get rid. Assuming our cancelled Villa game gets played soon, that makes 6 winnable fixtures in a row.
Rodgers should be absolutely nowhere near those games because the complete absence of basic effort and attention to detail is frankly, completely disgusting.
Chelsea owner Todd Boehly pitches Premier League All-Star game (msn.com)
Has he lost the dressing room ? No tears to be shed here for Todgers. Mr.Integrity and his horrible son.
Eddie Howe complaining about Bournemouth breaking up play and time wasting ..
Wonder where they learnt that from ?!
shood do anover Len Cantello Testimonial m8
The tactical genius that is Steve Cooper being bankrolled by simplistic billionaire megalomaniac Evangelos Marinakis.
"Hey Steve, who do we need in the transfer window to keep our place in the Premier? How many???! Enough's enough surely. No? OK, just one more and that's it."
They basically have nothing else to do but finance. Bored people
But I wonder, if Olympiacos and Nottingham Forest meet, who will win?
Evangelos Marinakis owns both clubs, as we know.
Mark Lawrenson the latest to criticise the BBC for being ageist and woke ..
Or was he just sacked for being no good and out of touch ?
Sorry original article was in the Times but you have to pay to read that .
I got in a crazy argument on Facebook over this the other day with a random guy who said:
Idiot: I never want to hear a woman who has never played the mens game do commentary as it's a completely different game"
Me: Lawro last played football over 30 years ago, the mens game now is completely different compared to then. You also don't have to have played the game to be a pundit or commentator
Idiot: I wouldn't ask someone to teach me to drive if they couldn't.
Me: Hold on, so you implicitly trust everything Lawro says about football simply cos he played the game 30 years ago to a high level and you haven't?
Idiot: Like I said, I wouldn't ask someone to teach me to drive if they couldn't.
What a world we live in.
Everton next team to be taken over by Americans?
Oh dear - poor Nath!
No not that one .
RED CARD - Nathaniel Chalobah (Fulham)
Fulham 0-0 Newcastle
Lol Brighton winning at Anfield... (so far). Have to say they have been a breathe of fresh air this season. I have no quarms with them as a club (even if their rivals are Crystal Palace for an odd reason). Has Klippety Klopp finally run out of tactics?
It's the A23 derby I believe.
All down to Mullery and Very Terribles when they were in charge at BHA and CP respectively.
Mullery had a bit of a problem with VT as he had been made captain at Spurs over AM.
When the two played each other at SP Palace received a few questionable decisions and AM threw coins on the pitch at the end,the implication being the ref was biased.
I think that's it.
Meanwhile a chap I coach,a big Spurs fan, who together with his brother did a lot of the building of the new White Hart Lane is in the Bahamas.
He's working on Levy's house and watched the game with him earlier.
An interesting post match game of Cluedo perhaps?!
