  1. Tuesday, where ever, pitch 22 on Wednesday
  2. For the first time in a while this is actually advantage aggy
  3. Maybe Elmo and Muff would like some of Herman’s left over piss bottles and instructions on how to dig a pit from Charlie.
  4. In on page 100 to say fuck the Brock’s!
  5. In most cases it’s the system and var rather than the refs. They make the right decision a high percentage of the time regarding offside and for stuff like sendings off and possible handballs they wait for var to tell them what to do. The whole Arteta thing was ridiculous, his usual whining. no clear and obvious error on the header, it’s already been calculated and shown the ball was in and there was no way to discern offside. More controversial was Havertz and Bruno not getting sent off, strangely he didn’t comment on that. there’s comments like “ it doesn’t matter how long it takes as long as it’s the right decision.” That’s complete bollocks. It’s terrible when you are in the stadium; very little info is shared and you sit around puzzled for minutes on end. VAR should be binned, it solves nothing and makes the game less enjoyable with constant stoppages. Goal line technology, great. I’d be fine with retrospective punishment for egregious fouls that are missed but remove var. the Championship does fine without it, things aren’t at a point of no return
  6. Impressed he’s so highly rated with no fingers on his left hand
  7. Think you’ll be lucky to get 100 mil for those four but we’ll see. Seems like the market has shifted a bit. 35m for Mcalister and Bellingham for less than 100 surprised me. I think Jwp will end up being about 35 as well. You lose negotiating power when relegated. I was also surprised to see you as promotion favourites, tough to tell until transfer window closes.
  8. Playoff final pics. Everyone goes on about the Kenny being tough to play at but Luton were better away from home this season. The ground used to hold 30k with people clinging halfway up the floodlight pylons and kids sitting on their parents shoulders. The tunnel is small but the dressing rooms are worse; I don’t know how all the premier league support staff will fit. Teams will enter the ground through a tunnel that goes beneath the railway. I’m told season ticket prices won’t go up, reward for all the fans who filled the ground when the team was in the football conference. Other things that people don’t mention, the focus is on the 30 point deduction. The club was about to go bankrupt in the 70’s and stayed alive at the last minute by selling a player (could sell players anytime back then). All the fans contributed money to keep the club going. Then there was the attempt to move the club to Milton Keynes by a shite owner; it was vociferously opposed like only football fans can. They eventually moved Wimbledon instead of Luton.
  9. I’d say it’s commitment and passion. Fans live for the game and the club, it’s all the players have done since they were five years old; all they ever wanted to do. It means something to everyone involved. Not sure what is meant about how Wrexham players are paid but they get paid the most in the division and probably the league above too. I can’t tell if you are saying there’s more professional respect in mls? Yes in a way since some players in the national league won’t be full time professionals, but also the further down the leagues you go the more it’s like old fashioned English football. Highly physical, constant attack, long balls, strength over technique. Effort is heralded, which includes kicking your opponent up in the air.
  10. 70’s. It was still a game for regular fans, brilliant awaydays without being shifted around like cattle, enormous terraces, European cup was just for league champions, fa cup was the biggest match of the year, only 1 substitute, pitches that were complete bogs, no moving of fixtures for television. Brazil team of 70 and Dutch team of 74 incredibly exciting. Only thing it was missing was 3 points for a win.
