They'd be better simply paying him off and cancelling his contract. This kind of thing really is a shit part of the modern game.

Just watched the 73 Cup Final on the BBC’ iPlayer when the cup meant something and at a time when a second division side could have that dream that they could win the oldest cup in the world .
To think they beat City in the quarters , Arsenal in the semi final and then Leeds , Shows how much the Premier League and Sky money have fucked up the joy of football 
 

Loved the trophy Ian Porterfield  got for scoring the winning goal

I love the ‘73 Cup Final. Bob Stokoe was ace. 18 years earlier, Stokoe and Don Revie faced each other, as players, in the 1955 Cup Final.

Remember it well. Just about the whole country except Newcastle and Leeds was rooting for Sunderland.

 

Still, it was the exception rather than the rule that a 2nd Division club got to the final back then never mind won it.

Southampton and West Ham, as well, of course.

I watched a bit of the BBC 1 stuff today about the FA cup. Cracking bit where they were taking about the reporters on the day during the build-up and one of them was on a Lime St to London train for one of the Liverpool / Everton finals. He stood there surrounded by blues and this kid was decked out in Blue. Shirt, scarf the lot. About 13 years old and the reporter goes "Whose going to win today then?" The kid looked at him like he was a nobhead then went "Who do you think" hahahahaha 

 

 

The BBC can play a big part in making the FA Cup special again. Fuck all these starting the broadcast 5 minutes before kick-off right off. Have 3/4 games over Cup weekend on and replays mid-week. Then Final day should be like it used to be. Start the coverage early and make it a full day, a proper event. get the kids who are footy mad looking forward to staying in. Film the coaches as they travel to wembley from the hotel etc. It didn't matter to me who was in the final, I was always sat on the floor in-front of the telly for 5/6 hours on cup final day then straight out the door with my ball once the cup gets lifted. Sky/BT have monopolised the league and european footy so the BBC needs to make the cup its baby. The fucking snooker gets more airtime and broadcast effort (Not that I'm complaining, I fucking love the snooker me) than the cup. 

 

I ate my words in the end (Thankfully) but I was absolutely raging when I saw our line-up before the Everton cup game. Not only was it the cup but it was a fucking derby as well. We all probably expected to at least get to the champions league final this season the way we are playing but fuck me wouldn't you just love an FA cup final day? 8 years since we lost to Chelsea in the final, we should have got there until we decided to let villa piss on us the other year. I fucking love the Cup.

The FA Cup needs a lot of work to make it relevant like it used to be.

 

One of the things that absolutely MUST change is to jib the 5:30 cup final kick-off and move it back to 3pm.

Alan Smith is a cunt.

 

 

I used to do OT in Fords most nights, so had to get this done that night, went to the car radio and said we're a goal down, anyway got back to the pub where I was staying and where it was getting watched, as I was going up the stairs to put my gear away I heard them all shouting, I knew what had happened and I actually fell on my knees in despair absolutely gutted and then faced them cunts in the bar

Still sickening, that free kick towards the end, think it was Aldridge who passed to someone in the area instead having a go, then if only Houghton got over the ball a bit more instead of firing it over bar. 

If only.

Germany midfielder Mesut Ozil, 31, was offered a move away from Arsenal on transfer deadline day which manager Mikel Arteta was willing to approve.

Former Germany midfielder Mesut Ozil wants to see out the final year of his Arsenal contract but the Gunners want to offload the 31-year-old, who is on £350,000 a week, this summer for financial reasons.

Having to listen to yet another manager on Mesut fuckin Ozil:

 

The 31-year-old German, who has a year left on his current Arsenal contract, does not appear to be part of Arteta's plans at the Emirates, having not played a single minute since the Premier League restarted.

Huddersfield have sacked the Cowley brothers after 10 months in charge, 2 days after they beat West Brom to stay up! Hope they finish bottom next season!

They have previous,  sacking Jurgens mate for getting relegated from the Prem rather than giving him a blow job for ever getting them there and having them there for 2 seasons. He's doing alright at Schalke I believe.

    • Interesting.   I've been having a little think about who we could potentially target, outside the obvious and those we've already been linked with in the past. Buying from the Premier League appears highly unlikely for me, what with the astronomical fees that Premier League clubs will want in the Winter window.   I've also ruled out clubs playing in the Champions League, as they'll be less inclined to sell during the season, especially if they progress beyond the group stages.   Here are who I think could be intriguing potential targets that I like the look of:   Nikola Milenkovic at Fiorentina Kristoffer Ajer up at Celtic. I'd also consider a flyer on Connor Goldson at Rangers as he ticks the homegrown box, without the ridiculous price hike.   Milenkovic would the be most expensive of those 3, but with Fiorentina not in European competition this season, and in all likelihood they won't be again next season, the young Serb ticks a lot of boxes for me. Contracted to Florence club until the end of the 2022 season. I reckon he could be had in the region of £25-£30 million.   23 years old, but with good experience at International level having won 23 caps for Serbia already. He's a fraction taller than Virgil, so would help cover the loss of Virgil's aerial ability. He's also very comfortable playing at right back too, as he's played a number of games there for Fiorentina, so offers a touch of versatility if we ever did consider changing to a back 3, or if we ran into injury issues in that position.   Ajer is a player I've seen a fair bit of over the past couple of seasons, and one who to me needs a move to a better league to kick on. Again, he has some versatility about him, as he's very comfortable playing further up the park in a defensive midfield role.   Very composed on the ball, and another 6'5" lad who is more than decent in the air. Just 22 years old and is contracted to Celtic until the end of the 2022 season. Quite surprised that he didn't move on in the Summer, as there were plenty of rumours floating around that he wanted to move on from Celtic Park. A fee of £12-£15 million would be more than enough to secure his signature.   As for the flyer in Connor Goldson, I considered homegrown players outside the Premier League, and barring a few young potentials, Goldson ticks a number of boxes.   He's 27, so is more experienced than those above in terms of age, and has played in all tiers of the Professional Leagues in England. He's also a leader, having captained Rangers on a number of occasions.    A touch smaller than Virgil, he's still very good in the air, though he lacks the ball playing ability in comparison with the others. Again, he's contract until the end of the 2022 season, so I reckon he could be snapped up for £10 million at the most. A big plus for Goldson is his homegrown status, and I reckon he'd jump at a move down South to give any aspirations he has of playing International football that little more of a push.   I've gone off to Squawka to grab their comparison matrix to compare the domestic seasons of the 3 above, as well as Caleta-Car that Ne Moe mentioned.   https://www.squawka.com/en/comparison-matrix/?compare=hU63Iyjx1EX1vtv0ZtyK7  
    • It's like Rocky blaming Spider Rico for damaging his brain.   If his injury was that that bad he played 85 minutes and almost set up a goal with his cross. Didn't look like a player who was injured or struggling after a nasty challenge. 
    • A happy little celebration dance, because he's got 100% confidence in Fabinho preventing the goal.
    • This guy makes a pretty compelling case to take a look at Duje Caleta-Car.   Marseilles already agreed to sell him for 20m to West Ham in the summer, he rejected the move, but at least the price is reasonable. Only 24, but best of all, he's a great passer, which is something we're sure to miss with Virgil out. Also wins a good percentage of his duels, a bit of a poor man's Virgil in his style if you'll forgive the comparison.   One to keep an eye out for, maybe.
