  1. Chelsea have been clever more than anything. They've bent some rules, certainly. Broken tons on youth recruitment as well. They haven't done anything like what City have though, and most of their huge spending was when there were no rules in place against it. I didn't know about the debt owed to Abramovich though. Interesting that. Basically means they can't be sold to anyone else. If he ever calls that debt in, they're FUCKED.
  2. They will have said that then, I've misquoted the question. I didn't know what year it was anyway, its one of the two Guy Ritchie films I know so I took a shot and got lucky.
  3. He'd probably get in trouble for that. Their sticklers for the rules here. Jobsworths. Agreed. Hendo was class yeah. That save from De Gea was unreal. He had no business saving that one. Goldbridge described him and Shaw as like a pair of knackered dogs in the park with their tongues out panting.
  4. The Ronaldo / Virg / Fernandes / Konate sequence was class!
  5. Taken me all day to edit this as it was complete carnage. As soon as anyone starts shouting the sound goes all over the place so you'll have to cut us some slack on that. Starting on the match report now, will be up at some point tonight.

  7. Since I stopped writing for ESPN I was looking for some other freelance work to make up for the loss of income. I didn't really want to do any more footy writing as I prefer just being able to write whatever I like and to not have to worry about editorial policies, so TLW suits me perfectly on that front. I don't think anywhere else is letting me use the phrase 'slobbering goon'. Anyway, I've landed a nice gig reviewing golf equipment for T3.com and I'm also intending to do a golf youtube channel. I'm working on that, but unless I can get more comfortable in front of the camera that's never going to see the light of day! Hopefully I can solve that problem as I've got good ideas for interesting content. I just don't know if I can pull off the presentation. So I'm starting this thread for any golfers on here and for anyone that wants to support me just by following the social media accounts and then - if and when the time comes - liking/subscribing/sharing the videos. I'll post some of the links for the golf stuff I've reviewed, so any clicks would be appreciated as if they're getting good views that's obviously helpful to me. The youtube channel is called Bang Average Golf TV but there aren't any videos on there yet. I'll post the link to subscribe if/when there's anything to subscribe to. There's an instagram account - https://www.instagram.com/bangaveragegolftv/ Twitter - https://twitter.com/GolfBang and the website which isn't finished but will be soon - https://bangaveragegolf.co.uk/

    Other Football 2021/22

    Palace are good to watch this year. Vieira is definitely better than I gave him credit for, they look like a well coached team. If he can add some better players (still loads of Hodgson's squad there) they'll be decent.
  9. With all the sitters he misses he does do a great impression of someone who is shit though.
  10. Depends how you define it and it's a subjective term. He's been Player of the Year and been nominated for the Balon D'or a few times. He's not Messi or Ronaldo but he's been one of Europe's best players for the last five years.
  11. He's not good one v one with the keeper and his shooting is generally weaker than I see at Adrianna's Sunday footy. That being said, he's quite brilliant at everything else and is a really intelligent player. He can play pretty much anywhere and his decision making is usually spot on. He's probably the least convincing looking world class player out there. When we play City I'm a lot happier when isn't playing because he scares me more than anyone else they have other than De Bruyne, and now maybe Foden too.

    Can Martin Samuel get any lower?

    Probably the worst of all the national writers, and he's always been an absolute cunt. The worst moment of my life was a few years ago when I'd grown a bit of a beard and @RedKnight said I looked like Martin Samuel. We lost the Champions League Final that night, but that wasn't half as bad as the feeling I had when he made that comment.

    Premier League Round Up (Oct 17-19 2021)

    Any time I see someone absolutely welly an opponent it makes me laugh. It goes back to when I was a kid and that kind of thing happened all the time on the school field. Its just funny. I always remember my mate doing it to one of our own team-mates after he missed a pen. It's a long story that I'm sure I've mentioned before in a round up. Can't be arsed telling it again, but whenever I see that kind of challenge it takes me back to that moment back when I was about 10 and that's probably why I always think its funny. I blame VAR more than Dean. They've got the benefit of replays so there's no excuse. Of course he should have got the decision right too, but he only gets one look at it whereas VAR could have had no doubt.
  14. I would neither welcome nor object to it. Can see both sides, don't really care much either way, not least because we wouldn't pay the salary he gets at City.

    Golf thread / my new project

    This week's round up https://bangaveragegolf.co.uk/2021/10/21/rory-roars-rahm-crashes-and-fitz-stays-the-course/ Bets for this week. I've had a couple of quid on Fleetwood, and a fiver on Xander/Fleetwood/Wallace all finishing in the top 10.
  16. It's a lovely gesture, he's just misunderstood.

    January 2022 Transfer Thread

    Is Aidy Ward still his agent or not?

    January 2022 Transfer Thread

    This is pretty much where I'm at. Football reasons, there's loads why it would make sense. He's City's most dangerous forward by an absolute fucking mile and I don't know why he's fallen out of favour. Financially though it isn't viable unless he takes a paycut, which he won't.
  19. I did used to call him "parsnip nose nan's hair" because that was my brother in laws go-to insult for him, but cabbage head is defo not one of mine!

    Atletico Madrid 2 Liverpool 3 (Oct 19 2021)

    Simeone running down the tunnel didn't really really faze me at all as I'd have been more surprised if he'd done the honourable thing and stayed for the handshake. I didn't mention it as by the time I wrote the report I'd forgotten about it. He's a horrible, snide rat and his team are a mirror image of that.
  21. Jules' breakdown of Atletico was so good I just wanted to applaud when he'd finished.

    I did shoot 87 on Monday. Missed birdie putts from 5 feet and 2 feet. Really thought I'd turned a corner with my putting but no, I'm still pure shit.

    Liverpool All Time 11 - Results

    Yeah this is the solution.

    Liverpool All Time 11 - Results

    There's no way John Barnes doesn't get into any best XI but he was a victim of the formation here. He's defo in our top five ever players.

    Geordie Arabia

    I heard he slotted it in the ballot box but it didn't count because he'd gone too early as he doesn't understand the rules.
