Grant Hanley categorically not ready.

ShariVari, Friday, 9 August 2019 19:14 (seven months ago) link

Norwich really don't deserve this

Number None, Friday, 9 August 2019 19:30 (seven months ago) link

This is going to be one of the better performances by a team that loses 8-0 isn't it

Dadjokke (Sgt. Biscuits), Friday, 9 August 2019 19:33 (seven months ago) link

Hold on, Grant Hanley's playing in the Premiership?

Euripedes' Trousers (Tom D.), Friday, 9 August 2019 19:37 (seven months ago) link

In a manner of speaking.

ShariVari, Friday, 9 August 2019 19:38 (seven months ago) link

The own goal was pretty hilarious.

But there was a span of ten minutes when it was 2-0 where Liverpool should have conceded

Plucky Pukki pulls one bakk.

more footage of Delia Smith and Alan Hansen please. i wonder what theyre saying to each other

Windsor Davies, Friday, 9 August 2019 20:32 (seven months ago) link

o rite

Hansen on Delia: “My wife and I met Delia and Michael through the Radio Times. The Radio Times used to take readers to New York and back on the QEII and that's where we first met, and we've all stayed in touch and we're really good friends.”

slightly more confused/intrigued than i was before

Norwich manager looks like a bad guy from a Steven Segal movie

The World According To.... (Michael B), Friday, 9 August 2019 22:23 (seven months ago) link

He's a mean looking dude, for sure.

Euripedes' Trousers (Tom D.), Friday, 9 August 2019 22:31 (seven months ago) link

he looks a hardened Wehrmacht commander when he dons the full length leather jacket.

Norwich manager looks like a bad guy from a Steven Segal movie
so he looks like Steven Segal?

Steven Segal isn't bad, he's ABOVE THE LAW

The World According To.... (Michael B), Friday, 9 August 2019 22:41 (seven months ago) link

Has long enough passed that I can post this?

Norwich return to the Premier League. The Championship, like all good parents, will keep their room just as they left it for when they come back home next year.

i just like a good game (match)

alomar lines, Saturday, 10 August 2019 03:01 (seven months ago) link

Welcome all.

I’m not sure Norwich are much better equipped than Fulham to cope with the Premier League but it’ll be fun to see them try. Pukki and Leitner should score goals. I suppose it only requires Newcastle, Villa and Sheffield United to be worse.

ShariVari, Saturday, 10 August 2019 06:08 (seven months ago) link

this whole ozil/kolasinac thing seems so weird to me. are they actually being threatened by an organised gang with regard to their testimony or something?

Didn't watch a ton of Spurs last season but thought Eric Died was as poor as Trippier, be interested to see if he lasts the season as a regular

Ooh good chance for lucas

Actually watched a snide broadcast of everton v palace in an everton pub... never felt in much danger of exposing myself with extravagant gloating goal celebrations.

Glass half full: we gritted out a point we didn't deserve

Half empty: we played shit and should have been stuffed and are definitely going down if that's the best we've got

Aston "Family Court" Barrett (Bananaman Begins), Saturday, 10 August 2019 16:39 (seven months ago) link

wanna hear darragh on that goal

Lol, starting like we ended last season.

One punt down the middle

Sweet pass, way too easy. Spurs will still win I think but hella shakey at the back.

They're in a tough bind because like, obviously normally they would need to kill some of their workers in order to continue to make some money, but their workers are like actually worth a lot of money? So if they die it's bad??

RIP MSK Zilina, first club to fold "due to coronavirus outbreak"

Let's hope Newcastle's next!

still hoping for Leeds, i'd take Bielsa when Nuno gets bribed away by one of the wrong'uns

A rat done bit my sister Nell with Biden on the nom (Noodle Vague), Tuesday, 31 March 2020 13:52 (one week ago) link

not only is Bielsa a brilliant maverick manager he is also a committed socialist, it's horrible that he rocked up at that ugly oversized skip on Elland Rd.

calzino, Tuesday, 31 March 2020 13:59 (one week ago) link

Otm. Bielsa's one of the good ones; I wouldn't ever wish him on bloody Leeds.

a combination of Leeds friends and Bielsa has softened me over the last couple of years. I kinda love the idea that he'd rather play his way than take a lazy promotion tho.

Steve Bull was brilliant on a recent episode of Quickly Kevin: https://play.acast.com/s/quicklykevin/a113b5e6-ae34-45bc-8aa1-94e017c1a209
(The whole podcast is great if you haven't heard it - 90s football, extended interviews with the likes of Tony Dorigo, John Moncur, Darren Huckerby, in-depth readings of the Steve Bruce novels, which are just astonishing. Will depend on your capacity for extended Josh Widdicombe.)

Unfortunately my capacity for podcasts and Josh Widdicombe is pretty low, but we've all got time on our hands at the moment.

The idea of listening to Widdecombe talk about football revolts me, he'll only go on about The Snot and their filthy ways and I'd rather just go on pretending they don't exist.

Tim, Wednesday, 1 April 2020 13:55 (one week ago) link

Belgium becomes the first European league (I think) to make a decision: rest of the season cancelled, and effectively the most recent standings declared final. So Club Brugge are champions, and Gent go into the CL as runners-up. Relegation still to be decided.

They've basically finished the first part of the season anyway. They're just cutting out the clausura bit aiui. That's not going to be as easy to sell in leagues where everyone hasn't already played each other twice.

ShariVari, Thursday, 2 April 2020 13:34 (six days ago) link

Well, everyone's played each other twice (at least) in Scotland, so give the title to Celtic.

FIFA is to confirm an indefinite extension to the season.

It means each country’s football association can choose when the campaigns ends.

They'll also alter the dates of the transfer window & allow contract extensions for players out of contract in June. pic.twitter.com/DhtgokoVZT
