    Chelsea (A) | Post-Match Thread

    Brilliant performance today. And a team shape that may have got the job done in Portugal for us... oh well. Was having a bit of a panic when Pep took so long to drag Phil and Kev off, they were blowing big time and becoming sloppy which, after their injuries is no surprise. Rodri was...

    The Boxing thread

    I think there are a lot of AJ fanboys who genuinely think he is a good boxer.

    The Boxing thread

    I don't know why people want to see Fury v Joshua. Fury is a different league and would win easily. Yes it's two British champions (or was) but Joshua isn't a good boxer by any stretch. His best performance was against Klitschko where he rose to his feet and pulled it out from nowhere. Fury...

    Chelsea (A) - Sat 25 Sep 12:30 | Pre-Match Thread

    Time for some revenge on these fuckers. 3-1 City.

    Etihad Atmosphere - 2021/22

    Pricing has always been the key with City attendances. Fans are generally from the local area and it is and always will be a family club. Generally we have always struggled to get big numbers in for midweek games. I remember going to watch us play Juve in the UEFA Cup and there weren't many...

    Next Manager after Pep

    Someone from the Bundesliga. Nagelsmann or another that impresses over the next couple of years. German managers adapt well in England and are happy to play young players and seem to be successful.

    Tennis Thread | Emma Raducanu US Open Champion

    I think the loss was more to do with the pressure he put on himself this year to try and win the lot. I think that pressure told in the end and the occasion got to him. He was obviously taken aback by the support - the crowd cheered his missed shots at the US Open a few years back I read! I...

    F1 Season 2021

    Absolute bollocks. He knew he was never getting past Hamiton around there. He said afterwards Hamilton didn't give him any space... he didn't have to. He was ahead and could do what he wanted to defend his position but Verstappen just couldn't accept he was ahead so just kept driving at pace...

    Kalvin Phillips

    I'm not convinced he'll be a top top player yet. But I thought the same about Grealish until a year or so ago. Rice is a much better player at the moment.

    Running thread

    I've got a half marathon on 3rd October which I booked when I was running consistently (pre-Euro's). Got far too drunk and fat over summer and have lost any pace I did have. Was targeting a sub 1hr45 but now just finishing it will be a challenge! 5 miles is as far as I've gone so far. Been...

    Leicester City (A) | Man of the Match

    We might not have signed a striker but keeping Bernie and Laporte when teams were rumoured to be looking for them on the cheap... business that has done us well. Both are working hard, both are playing well. Bernie was incredible yesterday. Was everywhere.

    Tennis Thread | Emma Raducanu US Open Champion

    I don't watch a lot of tennis but do tune into the odd game, usually the finals of slams or a Murray game (if I want pain and drama). That final was really high class and a far better standard than most of the women's finals I have watched previously. Huge hitting, excellent range of shots...

    I hate the Aussies but India are really challenging them for most hated in my book. They're the Liverpool of cricket.

    #21 | Ferran Torres - 2021/22 Performances

    I think it's a good bet. We've got Foden and De Bruyne to return but it looks like Torres will be the preferred no. 9 this season so he may end up playing more than we'd expect and Sterling, Foden, Grealish, Bernardo, Mahrez and Jesus all compete for the wide/no.10 position. We'll still field a...

    ******Cricket Thread******

    There's no way England challenge for the World Test Championship finals anyway but realistically you'd expect it to be re-classified as a 4 game test by the ICC. India had some positive tests within their staff and although the players tested negative I think they'll convince the ICC it was a...

    The Keeper - Trautmann film Sunday 5th Sept on BBC

    Just watched it tonight with my wife and mother in law. Had all three of us crying! It is an exceptional film. I have read through the posts so recognise some elements have been dramatised. Seeing Maine Road, seeing the FA Cup final and then the tragedy... too much for me. The fans ripping the...

    #21 | Ferran Torres - 2021/22 Performances

    I agree. Naturally going from winger to a centre forward will take some getting used to. You see with Gabby in the central position he wants to get on the ball where Sergio only really wanted it if he could then look to get a shot off or play a 1-2 to get on the end of something. Torres'...

    Poland v England | World Cup Qualifier

    If Southgate can improve his game management then we'll take some beating. I only watched the last ten minutes and with about 5mins to go I could see they would have a chance to score. Rice was a one man wrecking machine but Philipps was completely blown. Getting surrounded and losing the ball...

    Jude Bellingham

    Yeah I know what you mean, and that's not necessarily a bad thing as long as it is well managed and he is well advised by those more senior players and his manager/agent. To burst onto the scene at such a young age, I mean he used to be 17!
