    Deloitte Football Rich List (merged)

    Not quite correct as company valuations are based on a MULTIPLE of earnings (profits), so the value mod all the shares in the company is calculated using X times profit. The multiple (X) used depends on the growth and prospects of the business. If the the multiple is 13 or above then overpaying...

    Title Race 2020/21

    I can’t believe I am writing this but I do think that Spurs could turn out to be our biggest title rivals this year. They have depth, with Kane and Son have the firepower up front and seem to be buying into Mourinho, who is by and large concentrating on the job of coaching them rather than...

    Title Race 2020/21

    Need to take advantage of the upcoming run of games and get our noses in front to prevent the red shirts doing a Donald Trump and trying stop the season at the point they are ahead due to Covid and fixture pile ups. If we carry on in all 4 comps then we have no slack for any more rearranged...

    Garth Crooks' Team of the week

    There is a glorious line in a Half Man Half Biscuit song that says “there is nothing worse than cleaning a sieve, with the possible exception of being Garth Crooks”

    Harry Maguire found guilty in Greece

    I don't blame Maguire for trying to put the best possible spin on events, who wouldn't. I do have a problem with the BBC and in particular its so called 'reporter' Dan Roan. During the exclusive interview Maguire said he was badly beaten on the legs and was being told that he would never play...

    Harry Maguire found guilty in Greece

    Just compare it to how other outlets reporting it, even the comic that is the Daily Mail has a headline that he has been arrested for attacking police. The BBC calls it 'an incident' and states 'no further details have emerged'!!! What are we paying our license fee for if they can't get the...

    Harry Maguire found guilty in Greece

    As someone suggested above, it's like they asked the Rags PR people to write it for them. But then they are really just an extension of that team anyway so not surprising it sounds like that. Interesting contrast with their spin when City were found not guilty of the FFP breaches by the...

    Harry Maguire found guilty in Greece

    BBC headline is "Maguire cooperating with authorities" which puts an ludicrously positive spin on someone having been arrested for being involved in a brawl. Trying to make it sound like the Greek police should be very grateful for all his help :) No agenda of course.

    CAS judgement: UEFA ban overturned, City exonerated (report out p603)

    To me it feels the whole FFP battle is only a part of a bigger war, and the reason that we are not being left alone to enjoy our victory is that that war is still going on. American owners (plus those getting fat from the unchallenged dominance of certain 'historical' European Clubs) want to be...

    Bluemoon Fantasy Football League 2019/20

    I am sure there was a Bluemoon H2H league last year, would be a shame if we don't have one this year, it was great as you could have a good score and lose or a crap week and still win

    Newcastle (a) post match thread

    Hugely disappointing, and we didn't do enough to win. The thing that I am struggling with is on what grounds was that a penalty? The Newcastle player didn't have control of the ball. Fernandinho didn't intentionally bring him down, he just turned into him without knowing he was there. It...

    BFS said he didn't watch it, but based on the stats it couldn't have been that bad (all that possession, all those shots) which is bad enough. Later when they played a clip of Cundy saying how he had seen PEG like this at Chelsea and it meant the end was near, BFS had the nerve to say "I don't...

    Is English Football reaching a tipping point?

    It looks like at the top end of the Premier League most teams are wanting to play a more progressive possession based technical style and can afford the players to do so. With Sarri now at Chelsea and Emery at Arsenal it is only our Moaning Neighbours out of the "Big Six" who choose to stick...

    Is English Football reaching a tipping point?

    We have just witnessed a season where City have utterly dominated the wealthiest ever premier league with more player and managerial talent than ever before, all done playing Pep's possession based football. The conventional wisdom from the press, pundits and old boys club of managers that this...

    Sam Allardyce: Epitome of why English football has lagged behind

    I don't think anyone would deny that Sam was quite modern in the sense of being an early adopter of statistics and analysis, but it was certainly applied to a 'traditional' physical approach to football where players are valued at least as much for their strength, power and size as for technical...
