Ajax facing Europa League exit, with a 2-0 loss to Getafe, which is quite a marked contrast to last year's heroics. They were never going to be the same force with their best players being picked off, but it's going to be interesting to see how long it takes them to rebuild again to the point where they're in the knockouts of the Champions league.

What a goal from Neves.

 

He does that now and again but in general he's had a shit season, also loses the ball in important area way too often. Annoying player, as he clearly has the skills.

Haji (who'se been very good) gives Rangers the lead with a deflected free-kick.

 

Harsh on Braga, but Rangers deserve credit for not giving up.

 

 

That hagi looks really good unfortunately the bastards.

He's on loan from Genk, which has me wondering what are Genk that they can loan out a player of his quality?

I know. Decent loan fee I'd imagine.

Lads, Getafe are playing Ajax. It's a decent game between two sides better than Club Brugge and United. Fuck watching United.

 

Babel just got booked. It was a bit soft. The Getafe player was rolling around on the deck and Babel jumps on the floor and starts rolling around taking the piss out of him, then was basically pretending to carry him off the pitch. Funny as fuck.

Shithousery doesn't generally bother me, but had to draw the line with Getafe. They are a nightmare. Can't imagine there being a more cunt team than them.

They're what Atlético used to be, but with worse players.

 

To be fair, they were just better than Ajax this evening.

The ball was in play for 42 of the 90 minutes in that Getafe game apparently. Having never seen Getafe play, I'm oddly intrigued by them as it sounds like they are the ultimate anti footballing side, and completely brutal to watch.

Red Bull Salzburg been ransacked even more quickly. Lost their first leg 4-1.

I honestly think that the best way to combat this type of shit is maybe to start the game as 40 minutes per half and stop the clock each time play is stopped. It would stop the time wasting shithousery overnight.

And still people bitch that VAR takes too long. At least the concept is trying to improve the game. Just a shame the implementation thus far has been a fucking shambles.

Not sure about that. Shithouse teams would use stoppages to check any momentum their opponents try to build up. It's just another way to break up play.

Sadly the best way of combating shithouse anti football sides is by having really good refs.

Basically this. Games dont need lengthening or shortening, it just needs the officials to get a grip with game management.

 

Last I heard, refs were not supposed to stop games for injuries unless it's a clear head injury. Yet in our last two games, Norwich and Atletico, both refs stopped the game while we were in possession when an oppo went down injured. Both were injuries to the leg and foot.

 

Since when has a player's head been on their lower fucking body? In the norwich game, the player actually pulled up off the pitch then walked back on to waste more time because the sub wasnt ready to come on.

 

Neither are subbed players leaving by the nearest touchline and instead, they are all walking over the pitch as before. Goalkeepers seem to be allowed to waste as much time as they want in the first half especially at Anfield with impunity.

 

How often do you see a player go to take a throw in then drop the ball and wait for a team mate to come over and take it? Either make the nearest player have to take the throw in or, once a player touches the ball after it goes out they have to take the throw.

 

In a 45 minute half, roughly 20+ minutes the ball isnt in play. You'll never get that down to zero because teams have to be allowed to organise for corners, free kicks etc but a lot of th eblatant time wasting could be cut out quite easily, I think.

    • And the next round of objections to be raised, with Brighton once again appearing at the forefront of objections now the resumption of the league is in sight, are:   The Premier League are facing dissent from several clubs over a number of proposed rule changes for the resumption of the season. Sportsmail has learned that plans to increase the number of substitutes from three to five, to allow clubs to re-register players not named in their 25-man squads in January and to introduce a multi-ball system all have detractors. There is also unhappiness at some clubs about the Premier League's unwillingness to reconsider the use of VAR, which FIFA ruled last month could be abandoned for the rest of the campaign.   These issues are likely to lead to a fierce debate at Thursday's meeting of club executives, ahead of a formal vote on any rule changes next week. Each change would need 14 of the 20 clubs in favour to pass.  Many clubs support increasing substitutions to five due to injury fears in a congested schedule after a lengthy break, with Chelsea submitting a proposal to increase the number of substitutes on the bench from seven to nine, as revealed by Sportsmail on Monday.  But several other clubs argue making such a major change mid-season would damage the competition's integrity, while those with smaller squads feel they would be at a disadvantage.   Managers who pride themselves on their players' fitness and work ethic are also concerned at losing such advantages. Brighton coach Graham Potter went public with his opposition last month and many relegation-threatened clubs agree. Aston Villa would be obvious beneficiaries of allowing clubs to re-register players.  Goalkeeper Tom Heaton and striker Wesley were originally omitted due to knee injuries, but may now be fit to play.  Villa's relegation rivals are likely to oppose such a move, however, and could be joined by clubs who are still to face Smith's side, such as Wolves and Manchester United who are chasing European football next season. Some clubs feel the multi-ball proposal will deny players the time to recover from fatigue when the ball is out of play, which is particularly problematic with games being played in the middle of summer. The rationale is to limit lengthy stoppages when the ball is kicked into empty stands.   https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-8378005/Plans-increase-subs-five-register-players-lead-dissent-Premier-League-ranks.html
    • Dont remember too much thuggery about 1970 , but even at League level in England it was very difficult to get sent off without committing a criminal offence at that time. The strange thing was that Brazil were a beautiful side and probably the best international side ever, yet within 4 years had become a shower of mediocre cloggers in Germany.
    • Also on the old tournaments and away games in Europe, I love how the commentator sounds proper muffled, like he’s in the middle of nowhere where they barely have transmission. Makes crucial away goals seem so cool and important. i read recently that Barry Davies used to do it by phone. Does anyone know if that’s true?
    • It was the first time red and yellow cards where used, there was a particular woeful decision to allow Mexico a goal against El Salvador, apparently when the ball was placed on the centre spot for them to kick off again they kept kicking it away, and as it was close to half time the Ref decided the best course of action was to blow for half time, I wonder how that would go down today?  Didn't El Salvador and Honduras go to war after, maybe 69 so plenty of shithousery there I expect.  It's always been there, was it Portugal who kicked Pele out of the 66 tournament?
