    AC Milan (H) - CL, Wed 15th Sep 2021 (8:00pm)

    Lo Squalo.... And for anyone of another Milan era; Il Genio... https://thesefootballtimes.co/2018/11/01/dejan-savicevic-the-outsider-still-fighting-for-recognition/

    VAR Thoughts?

    It's the same shower running VAR in this country......it's not going to be a lot better, and not as good as it could be.

    Gerd Muller RIP

    In the early 80s I was given a collection of some mid/late 70s Shoot annuals; and there was a feature in it: 'Gerd The Goal', aka Der Bomber. He was always in the right place, and his record was astonishing. I also recall a statement, "his work rate isn't very good, but he certainly knows were the goal is".

    Euro 2020(21)

    That 2nd half reminded me of the WC semi v Croatia; couldn't get hold of the ball, sat too deep, and hardly had a shot on goal...... When Italy equalised, it was hard to see were an English goal was coming from.

    Euro 2020(21)

    I actually think there are some decent players there - but as already said, they're anchored by a managing 'no mark'. Plays it too safe, plays not to lose. Why pick two DMs against Scotland? Really??

    Their lack of knowledge is predictably depressing.....Imagine them actually doing a bit of research, like they should be doing. Is it really too much to ask? The answer is obviously yes....

    Euro 2020(21)

    Same thing happened 6 months earlier in the final qualifier v Greece. He was lauded for a MOTM display, but he was anything but. His tactical indiscipline meant he was all over the pitch - leaving gaps down the right. And the last minute free kick was as soft as it gets.....and he duly delivered......sadly.

    Alberto Moreno

    Was never convinced he was a defender - he was far better going forward. But, he was never better than actual wide midfielders/wingers......

    Man City - the new bitters?

    Doesn't matter how many trophies they 'win' - to me they'll always be Maine Road, and Peter Swales regularly sacking managers.....

    Other football - 2020/21

    Dortmund being Dortmund, losing at home to Koln 1-2, all the while Bayern come from behind to beat Stuttgart 1-3.

    VAR Thoughts?

    It could/should be a good thing - overturning 'shockers', etc However, when you're drawing lines for mm offside decisions, then the system is wrong. Other sports implement their systems well, and are transparent. No reason football can't do the same; and it seems to be better in other countries. We have a problem in this country, it's called Mike Riley.......

    Nike deal

    I'm another for this; clean & simple. And green for the goalie top.....(yeah, I'm showing my age)

    The GF's favourite sport - an OFFICIAL STUDY

    Ah yes, you mean Downhill MTB?? Not the XC version? Which is no were near as good.

    Six Nations / Lions

    The ref who used to be a Kiwi, but is now an Aussie - how long before he's Welsh? He is abysmal, he 's been conning England for years, saying that, most refs do seem anti English. As expected, he got the scrum wrong...... 9/10 times I'd expect England to win, but I find it hard to accept a defeat like that, somethings not right.
  15. They obviously didn't expect Liverpool to take action, so decided they would..... Cretins!! Did Enrique or anybody complain about a tongue in cheek comment...
