    Aston Villa Thread - 2021/22

    Andres Townsend with better PR Scores a couple of worldies a season but otherwise average, as seen at Barca and Bayern. He was overhyped as he played for Liverpool, Villa is probably his level.

    MOTD 2020/21

    For me there is no conclusive proof in that picture that it didnt hit his arm. Therefore it's the VAR version of umpire's call. It didnt surprise me that this decision was talked about more than the other penalty decisions for other clubs that day as it would then mean them having to focus on...

    Media Thread - 2021/22

    I've left non City podcasts alone for a while, but thought i'd dip in to see how the coverage was after we trounced Leeds 7-0. Listened to the Totally Football show...all the focus, for some reason, was on Leeds...a nod to City and how great we were but the discussion was focused on Leeds. My...

    Do you celebrate a goal immediately or wait incase VAR rules it out?

    I don't get why anyone wouldn't celebrate straight away. Celebrating a goal and then finding out it has been disallowed happened before VAR. The extra time goals for England; Campbell's v Argentina and Lampard's v Portugal had everyone celebrating wildly only for it to dawn on us a minute or...

    Paris Saint-Germain (H) | CL | Post Match Thread

    What performance, has to be up there as one of the best under Pep. Bernardo is surely the best player in the world at the moment.

    Next Manager / Pep's contract

    Ten Hag's contract expiring same time as Peps? The way we operate that can't be a coincidence, City wouldn't have to pay Ajax a penny for one of the most sought after manager's in Europe.

    A ‘new’ City?

    Most football journalists and pundits in the UK know very little about the game of football. They grew up liking it but don't really understand it. It's like asking someone to review a bottle of the most expensive and complex bottles of red wine when all they drink is jaeger bombs. Pat Nevin...

    United Thread - 2021/22

    Ferguson has really ruined that club. Whenever I hear a pundit say "This is Manchester United we're talking about" I have to laugh. As if their place at the top of the footballing table should always be set for them. What they forget is that United were also rans for decades before Ferguson...

    Yorkshire Cricket Club

    A flippant remark by me, I should have said Root seemingly had no objection to Ballance's selection but that is conjecture on my part. I'm sure selectors would listen to the captain if he said a player shouldn't be selected because they are a racist, then again this is English cricket and I have...

    Yorkshire Cricket Club

    I thought you were you stating his general interactions, as alleged from the letter, were important (leading to him being racially abused). I might be a bit off with the time lines but wasn't Root made England Captain in early 2017? and Rafiq raised his concerns with YCCC the same year and...

    Yorkshire Cricket Club

    But you stated "but general social interactions throughout his time there are important". The letter should be completely dismissed. It should be incredibly hard for Root to stay of it, he's the England captain and there should be huge consequences for an England captain that hears racist...

    Yorkshire Cricket Club

    His general social interactions during his time there are not important. You seem to be putting a lot of stock in a letter from unnamed and an unknown number of staff about Rafiq's character. Yet having been confirmed that racism was/is an issue at YCCC you believe Joe Root's statement about...

    VAR Thread - 2021/22

    I don't believe Clear and Obvious is for offside, all goals are subject to offside checks. What I'd prefer with offsides is like in cricket where you have an umpires call, depending on how tight the margin is if the on-field decision is goal then it would stand and vice versa. Having the refs...

    #10 | Jack Grealish - 2021/22 Performances

    He does make room for Cancelo, he's the reason Cancelo is looking so good this season. Mahrez plays with an overlapping fullback which affords him more space to cut inside as the pass to an overlapping Walker is usually always on. Grealish ends up, more often than not, being doubled up on with...

    #10 | Jack Grealish - 2021/22 Performances

    This! Defenders are drawn to Grealish as they fear him, this offers Cancelo so much space to exploit and also means that his defensive duties are easier as fullbacks are less inclined to push on. This all reminds me of the Foden criticism during the Euro's...Foden was often doubled up on in...

    It was the 2014 game at Anfield where he was at his absolute worst. I remember having to double check Silva had actually scored due his lack of enthusiasm, then spontaneously combusting when Coutinho scored and then glossing over Skrtel's clear handball.
