Only because they were the least populous country in the tournament, it's not like they were barely a football side. Iceland beat Turkey, Czech Republic and the Netherlands twice in qualifying and were unbeaten in their group at the Euros so they're a capable team.

That's a poor result for Leicester regardless of being champions or not. Hull are in absolute turmoil at the moment and only have about 13-14 fit first team players.

I can see Leicester putting up the worst defence of a title ever. They've had a poor pre season, I think they only beat Celtic and that was on penalties, shipped goals at an alarming rate and as predicted haven't exactly attracted any big name players. Two or three poor results in the league and a couple of spankings in Europe and they'll be all over the place.

Kolarov is good at running at people at pace and crossing the ball: so play him at centre back.

full backs are an important weapon in modern football, but he wants them to act as play makers in midfield. bacary sagna ffs.

dropping Joe Hart though, I'm fully on board with that :snigger:

If it is, I wish roberto had taken better notes when watching from his football bunker next to his wife watching TOWIE.

Just for me, you don't need 10 central midfielders. you can dominate the game and get to the very top with three or four. Sometimes it seems his teams (Bayern mainly) achieve things in spite of his tactics rather than because of them.

He seems to think about the game in a completely different way to everyone else so fair play that has obviously been central to his huge success.

Yeah, it does feel like he is a bit of a contrarian for the sake of it sometimes, and a bit too wedded to the idea of re-imagining players' positions. But then the Bayern lot also said his training sessions we're like nothing they'd ever seen before, and light years ahead of other coaches.

He's got a great squad and an unlimited chequebook as well, so really I think he should be pissing this league straight away. I almost think that's the reason he tinkers so much, because it's the only way to demonstrate his imprint on a team that should be winning it's domestic league.

Yes I agree with what you say. An example would be this interview I saw with David Alaba. He said Guardiola was amazing and before he came he 'never knew I could play as a centre back'. Yes it's a brilliant coaching achievement to have a player play comfortably in lots of positions but tactically it's a massive indulgence when Alaba is a world class full back and you have Boateng, Benatia and Martinez already.

I don't want to be that guy, but it would be interesting to see how he got on at a team without unlimited resources. At City he fuck off 40 million Mangala and play a full back ahead of him if he wants but at, say, Southampton he couldn't drop an expensive specialist from the team because he doesn't live up to very esoteric standards for each position.

Ok the full backs take up central midfield position: Sunderland have to go narrow so to not be outnumbered centrally and City's wingers are left one-on-one.

All good so far but then you end up with Sagna and Clichy at the centre of your passing game.

If he wants a solid square of four in the centre of the pitch just play a 4-2-3-1!

To be fair Defoe has been carrying an injury, I think they'd left him on as long as they could.

Have to give some credit to Moyes for how solid they looked for most of that game against and how they limited a far more talented City side.

But whilst i don't think the substitution was the reason why they conceded, and I think a lot of other managers would've done something similar in the circumstances, end of the day yeah it was a classic Moyes sub.

Yeah, it reminds me of what we used to do on the tram as teenage cunts: standing behind the driver's cabin we'd talk to each other very loudly about how piss easy it is to drive a tram and how even a monkey could do it, you turn the lever clockwise to accelerate, and the other way to brake.

Ever notice Liverpool always seem to play Arsenal when it is a good time to play them?

Or is that just me.
Arsenal seem to have the same mental block against them as us.  Well, they have done since Henry left.  Before that he rinsed them every game.

I don't think he's a very good manager anymore. He obviously was great once, and deserves to be treated with respect and all that. But the way he's left their squad so short, and refuses to improve it out of stubbornness is basically a dereliction of duty. They should've moved him on a couple of years back.

Consistency is obviously very important but I do find a great deal of satisfaction from Shawcross being pulled up for this more than other players. He's a disgrace.

I don't mind that pen being given, as long as it's given throughout the league whenever it happens (which I very much doubt it will). Need to get rid of this shithouse Shawcross/Sktrel pulling at set pieces.

You have the feeling that disproportionately the "big" teams will get those decisions while those lower down the totem pole will get bookings for dissent to the referee when they miss out.

If they've changed the way refs are interpreting penalties at this start of the season, and all the clubs have been told about it, as people are saying, I think it's a pen.

They're saying that you can't just look at the man you're marking and block him, with no intention to play the ball or even look at the ball whatsoever. That's what Sterling did, so the ref's right to give the pen imo. The way people just block runners in the box at the moment is basically American football.

I know it's a bit 'man down the pub' but I honestly think if this is put into practice by all refs, it'll stop happening within a few weeks.

It's been obvious to absolutely everybody (non Arsenal fans included), that they've needed to buy a quality centre forward, defensive midfielder and centre back for at least 5 seasons now. It took Wenger about the same amount of time to address the goalkeeping situation too.

They absolutely have the right to question the way the team is run off the pitch and Wenger's reluctance to address certain long-standing issues on it. The club is stagnant.

But let's face it if they're playing badly after 30 minutes at the Emirates their fans start booing them. They're a bunch of idiots.

I don't really get why they're using Ibe in the hole. He could be decent for them on the wing, getting past his man and getting crosses in, but no way is he good enough to be the creative pivot.

Both sides looked pretty poor. West Ham do have a couple of players missing but still wasn't impressed by them or the new ground which seems too far from the pitch. Home advantage is partly down to crowd pressure, the more you distance the crowd the more you add the potential to reduce that effect.

They're only paying about £2m in rent a year but the lease only covers about 20 odd games per season. I don't even think they're having to pay for the police. They got a very good deal, the tax payer got an absolute stinker of a deal.

Jordan Henderson copped a fair bit of flak in the wake of Liverpool's toothless display in defeat by Burnley last weekend.

Is he good enough to play at the base of midfield?

He shows off his range of passing as he strokes a 50-yard ball forward, trying to pick out Philippe Countinho.

It has too much on it though, failing to check on landing and skipping through to Michel Vorm.'

Kane's never scored a goal in August apparently, which is fairly shocking. Didn't see the Palace game, but he's not even got close to scoring in the two Merseyside games.

Are they just trying to make a point, and to slap him down?

Let him go, get the money in, re-invest it and move on from it all. It just makes West Brom look petty as fuck.

Cos Pulis will spend the money earned on players represented by his own agent, trousering a big percentage of the dough himself.

Same, but he's an asset worth some money. Pulis is going on about wanting players. Either play him and get value out of him that way, or get rid of the whole saga from the club and bring some money in to spend.

Allardyce didn't have much chance to change things around, what with no friendlies to experiment in and starting with what's on paper the toughest fixture. But he won't have been happy with the way England almost completely failed to put attackable balls in the box.

England manager Sam Allardyce on Wayne Rooney's position, speaking to ITV: "Today Wayne played wherever he wanted to. He was brilliant and controlled midfield. I can't stop Wayne playing there."

F that. He was pedestrian. A couple of good passes, but no drive.

That's not to single out Rooney, there were worse players. Just who he highlighted.

We shall see I suppose. I thought at the very least we'd have been more energetic.

I'm amazed with this whole Rooney in midfield thing that's been going on this past year. Yes it's impressive that a striker can play in midfield and do a decent job of it... But that's all it is, decent. There's far better midfielders out there than Rooney.

Don't get me wrong, I rate Rooney as a player, but he should never be played any deeper than "No. 10". England have very good players in every position, there's no need to try mad experiments with players just to fit all the favourites into the team.

Sort it out Sam, you massive faced bastard.

I do think he'll get it right as well, he's a good manager.

The Fellaini/Pogba midfield is out of its depth here and Lingard/Mkhitaryan are offering no threat from the wings.

City have been very good but this is a poor lineup from Mourinho. He would have been better served playing Pogba further forward while bringing Schneiderlin or Herrera into the midfield to help Fellaini out defensively. He also might have considered dropping Fellaini entirely -- he isn't really built for games like this unless you use him as a target man.

United's only chance to win was to be difficult to play through and they've failed miserably on that account, as demonstrated by City getting a second while I was typing this.

No firm conclusions so far, they're certainly using his attributes a lot better. Feel like he's been poor for two seasons so I don't think 3 or 4 good to decent games is enough to draw a definitive conclusion as to whether he belongs in this Man City side if they want to be competing at the very top level.

A much better start to the season than I expected from him though.

I'm not sure where to put this so I'll put it here. It's Guardiola on Mourinho ahead of today's derby:

Quote
“José was my coach when he was assistant to Bobby Robson. The last meeting in Madrid with Barcelona was not easy but we met each other two or three weeks ago at a Premier League managers get-together and we spoke with each other, and with Ronald Koeman and Tony Pulis. So it was OK. The rivalry between us is more in the media.”

Not unprecedented though, look at Chelsea last year...they spent most of the season bottom half.

It's a little hard to say with Leicester, I think the European football will make it difficult but they've had some tough fixtures to start the season too. They picked up one injury today though, if they get as unlucky as they were lucky in that regard last season they could easily get in the mix of teams threatened with relegation. That would be a stretch, but they did beat the odds last year...it might work both ways.

The way Klopp has them set up I can see how some weeks they will score a hatful and the next they'll get pumped for 3 or 4.

They play very wide at times and it leaves lots of space to run in between the wing backs and the centrebacks. Can drag some teams all over the place with their movement and pace though on the other end of the pitch.

Just depends who they play and how they set up.

Then again he didn't actually concede any goals by dicking around with the ball like he was doing, Lots of teams will probably get frustrated by how much possession city have and end up trying to chase down Bravo everytime he has the ball, creating more space for City and tiring out the opposition

As if Pep doesn't rate Bravo. @Ross (http://www.nsno.co.uk/forums/index.php?action=profile;u=2316) was bang in the money IMO. Same way the media picked out every part of Stones' game last season.

The pundits put on there subdued voice in a pathetic attempt to appear analytical in the hope that we overlooked them salivating at every mistake with their pitchforks at the ready.
Title: Re: 2016/17 Today's Football
Post by: Bluedylan on September 11, 2016, 05:03:41 PM
Yep, Ross was right for me as well.

Pep was at pains to point out that for the passages of play that City completely overwhelmed Utd, Bravo's contribution to the play and build up was essential, and it wouldn't have been possible without him. Geoff Shreeves' head nearly exploded.

He might be over-stating that a bit, to support his new player and his way of playing, but the point still stands.

The English media are suspicious of Pep and his methods, in a very obvious and insular way. They go with what they know, and what they know is Mourinho. That's why barely any of them mentioned what an abomination Utd's tactics for the last 60 minutes were. In reality, it was Tony Pulis football and nothing more. But instead of pointing that out, they focused on Bravo and Pep's strange, exotic ways that'll 'never work in the Prem'.

They've already been saying for months that Pep's in for a rude awakening when he comes to our amazing league, where everyone beats everyone. 

As I've said from the start, I think City will piss the league. He was without Aguero yesterday and has been without Kompany, Gundogan, Gabriel Jesus (who by the way looks amazing). Sane's nowhere near upto speed yet. They're still only just getting to grips with his style of play, and they're still beating everyone in front of them.

Once they click, and start playing for 70/80/90 minutes a game, and when they get more clinical in front of goal, as they surely will, I think they'll run away with it.

(In contrast, it's only taken Mourinho 4 games and 1 defeat to start blaming some of his players, criticising referees and playing horrible anti-football with a collection of excellent players. I'm not sure Pogba came back to Utd to have 60 yard diagonals pumped at him).
Title: Re: 2016/17 Today's Football
Post by: ally2 on September 11, 2016, 05:18:55 PM
Yes I have also noticed a general media theme which is suspicious of Guardiola. Even in the game yesterday they were talking about how this isn't like Barca or Bayern where those teams were supposed to walk the league (anyone heard of a couple of little teams from Madrid?), then how a 2-0 score is a scoreline then won't guarantee a win in 'this league'. As Guardiola responded with appropriate tactics and regained control once again, Martin Tyler was left a little bit lost. With no more ammunition he gave up and remembered what used to be. He began reminiscing about Alex Ferguson clinging to the idea that there might be enough 'Fergie time' like in the old days. The old days when United used to win all the time. The old days when Sky owned football too.

We seem to pick the right kinds of players (by and large, there were a few complete duds like Jose Baxter or George Green), it's just that not all of them can perform on the top level.

Really good game in Mainz (except for the part where Mainz aren't still winning). Mainz was up 3-0 early, then up 4-1 before Hoffenheim scored 3 in around 15 minutes to even it up at 4-4.

Hoffenheim have a fair chance of winning this now.

Said this to the arl fella.

It's a bit like jockeys who ride on the flat now who just keep their toes on the edge of the irons instead of effectively being flat footed in them.

A 3 yard run up, stutter and trying to stroke the ball into the net is all about the bloke taking the penalty trying to earn style points and make the keeper look a bit of a clown.

When you're 1 down at Barcelona then you take 5 or 6 purposeful steps back to the edge of the D, wind your run up, cock your leg back and when you get to the ball absolutely fucking welly the cunt and hope for the best!!

I haaaaate those penalties. Yes, certain players can pull it off with a decent amount of regularity but as a professional footballer...why take away power from a shot and giving the keeper more of a chance to save it? With a combination of power and accuracy your 99% going to score as we saw with Baines in his earlier days and the likes of Le Tissier, or our very own James Beattie.

He's the same age (6 months younger, actually) as Pogba who is just as inconsistent in my opinion. The only reason Pogba has such a reputation is because he was playing for such a big club in a league which is barely seen by mainstream media.

One thing I would say in defence of Pogba is that Mourinho hasn't been using him in the right role (imo). He's not positionally disciplined enough to play in the 2 deep lying midfielders, in a 4-2-3-1.

He needs to be in a midfield 3, as the most advanced of the 3 with a license to roam and effect the game in the final third, with two more intelligent, disciplined players sat in behind him.

My theory is he has a touch of the Beckham about him, i.e. obviously wants to be a decent footballer but the true goal is to be a global fashion icon/celebrity and Man United is far better suited to these needs than Juve. Not that theres anything wrong with that i mean thats why people watch football these days.

Then again i am basing this theory almost entirely on this photo

I've still yet to see why he's the most expensive player in the world. Apart from the obvious, that United wanted to make a statement by spending stupid money and all the really good players turned them down.

I think there's much better midfielders out there for a fraction of his price, there's even one in the same side as him that's better.

Fiorentina are in maybe the worst Europa League group I've ever seen -- Fiorentina, Liberec, FK Qarabag, and PAOK Salonika.

UEFA might as well have placed them in the knockout rounds and had the other three fight it out.

For example, they've got a segment coming up with Flintoff, Whitehall and Corden (or as I like to refer to them 'the three cunts'). Sack all this shite off and just do a Monday Night Football show on a Friday, and people will be happy.

Conversely Chelsea looking pretty average. Maybe we're getting a better sense of them now. They rescued a lot of points via late Costa goals.

Their main problem has been beating shit teams who set up defensively, and so far the only one they've played beat them 2-0.

If they overcome that hurdle, I do think they're probably in for a very strong season, with no Europe. I'd probably say they'll finish 2nd, and that every Evertonian will be thankful for Pep and City come the end of the season.

Can we rescue Schneiderlin from United's bench this January? He's one of the better Barry-like midfielders in the league around and he's barely getting into their team this season.

I like Herrera too but I'm not sure he's the right style of player to complement Gana.

Edit: I really like Capoue as well but he's essential for Watford, which means he'd probably be hard to get.

The difference there for that Man Utd goal. The ball goes over Rashford's head, hits the defender at the top of his arm/shoulder (not a pen). Rooney stands there, arms raised appealing for a penalty. Rashford tries to score from the fortuitous drop and does.

Glad we didn't get Mourinho....

His success is built on two pillars -- (1) devising tactical plans to frustrate opponents without the ball and punish them swiftly with the ball, and (2) protecting his players from criticism.

I think he's still good at the tactical stuff but I'm starting to question his man management. The players seemed to turn on him rapidly at Chelsea and he was quick to throw some of this current batch under the bus after the City loss (and they've responded with lackluster performances against Feyenoord and Watford).

These last three games are probably just a blip and United will probably be fine. But I'm curious to see how he handles this today because if he keeps blaming the players, I wouldn't be shocked to see the apathetic/mediocre performances continue.

True. Especially with no pressure on the ball, just letting United stroke it around on the edge of Leicester's box, not winning headers from corners, barely posing any threat yourselves, even though United are massively vulnerable at the back.

It's all great winning the league and that, but this is a new season. Just going to Old Trafford and Anfield and rolling over like this is lame as fuck. It'd be poor from a newly promoted team, nevermind the current Champions.

It's the first game I've ever seen at that level and it was great fun.

A tenner entrance, a chip butty that didn't cost the earth (£1.60), you can wander round all 4 sides of the ground as you please, no more than 2ft from the byeline, plenty of colourful language perfectly audible from the dugout and pitch and players getting up as soon as they can after some meaty tackles.

Everything that it lacks from watching sky tv football is exactly what makes it fun. No Martyn Tyler/ Graeme Souness etc. No repeats from every angle of marginal offside calls. No managers arranging key note speeches in the Far East for 400k and slagging off his employers and predesescor with unbelievable arrogance!

1-0 to the mighty bucks in front of a crowd of 289!!

I'm a big fan of non-league football, sadly I rarely go to cheer the Shaymen nowadays.

And for exactly the same reasons you listed. It feels more real, and while most of the supporters are die-hard fanatics (you have to be to go and watch a non-league reserve cup game on a freezing Tuesday night in November, I'm soft so only did it once by accident), but there still isn't that feeling of deadly seriousness you get in the Premier League.

Like when Colwyn Bay came visiting and they put their fans slap bang in the middle of the home crowd. There was no aggro whatsoever, they sang throughout the game, living up to at least one of the stereotypes about the Welsh.

Or when during the last game of the season the referee picked up an injury. This was in the 7th division, no fourth official who could replace him. So they asked on the tannoy whether someone in the crowd is a qualified referee. A forty-something bloke from the home crowd volunteered, he was given a flag and got to run the line.

It was all fine for the next few minutes but the first time he flagged one of our players offside (correctly, by the way), the loudest boo of the afternoon went up, and someone shouted "We know where you live", then everyone burst out laughing.

The Corby fans were in the middle of the home fans tonight. They just stood behind whichever goal it was they were attacking.

It's largely kick and rush but there are actually some lads playing there that could easily cut it in the football league.

And they're was also a lad there that probably weighed as much as Bally. And he actually scored the winner!! Jamie Jackson.

I remember his name, he was at Halifax a few season ago, he's the half-brother of Kevin Davies. :)

This is the other thing I love about non-league, players with individual life stories.

On the one side are the lads who later go on to be professionals, but you sometimes see a blast from the past too. We had Scott Phelan playing in midfield for us for a couple of seasons, he's a former Everton academy player. released, wandered around a lot, he's now back with Everton, coaching kids.

Femi Orengua was playing for Corby last night. I recognised the name immediately but thought he was one of the kids Arsenal had let go when they had a conveyor belt of youth 10 years ago.

Just googled him now and he was on our books back in 2009. Which sort of just goes to show the point that the difference in making it big time and ending up somewhere like Corby is pretty finite.

Unfortunately the rules are pretty clear in this case: a handball has to be deliberate to be an infringement. Just a minute before the goal the ball bounced up on Keane's arm in a similar fashion and that was rightly waved away as not a penalty.

Completely unrelated but me and my mate were watching the dvd of all our goals in the premier league a few months back.  There was a period between 98-2000 where it seemed everytime we scored it was met with the goalscorer picking the ball up and running to the centre circle after obviously grabbing a consolation.

Pretty much every single Kevin Campbell goal after his loan spell was this.

Bleak times.

Don't really understand the slagging of Townsend. He's a far better player than Walcott.

Can beat a man, end product although not brilliant tonight is often decent and he's far more direct than anything we've got and doesn't seem to freeze like everyone else does.

All in all though. Piss poor. Once again.

As has been mentioned, the rise of the premier league has a direct effect on the fall of the national team.

Waddle was always overated internationally for me. Rarely played a good game for England and it used to piss me off he got in ahead of Trevor Steven despite the right wing not even being his position. John Barnes was another failure at international level.

It's funny, England have always struggled on that left hand side. In over 30 years, they still don't have a quality left sided player.

agree They finish 4th in 1990 but the 5 previous World cups They failed to qualify twice and only reached the quarterfinals twice The same as After the PL started. I know more teams qualify now but still poor. The European Championship record was terrible before PL now it's just poor.

Credit to Thierry Henry for pointing out how shit Gary Cahill is. Sky trotting out the usual cliches about David Luiz making mistakes and switching off, and Henry stepped in and said 'hang on, the one making regular mistakes is Gary Cahill'.

It's almost like Henry is actually watching the games, rather than running with a pre-prepared narrative like the other Sky fuckwits are.

I can see them getting dragged into a relegation battle again, absolutely mad how last season panned out for them. I don't think they'll go down this year but in a couple of years they probably will when they're no longer attractive to players. They're going through something they never did last season, a run of bad results, heads will drop confidence will go and all momentum will be lost. They're doing alright in the Champions League but even then they got lucky and couldn't have hoped for a better group.

Keep going like they are and he might not see January.

It's inevitable, they flirted with this for years now and sacking Moyes isn't going to change that. Changing managers all the time has't really worked for them (I know Allardyce leaving wasn't their choice) the best they can do is stick with and if/when they go down give him a chance to bring them back up.

He came way out of his area (unnecessarily as the ball would've come into the box), did get to the ball but played a really limp first time pass that went straight to Suarez. Suarez chipped it towards goal (was going in) and Bravo put his hands up to stop it going in...but he was still outside the box. So red card.

Days like this are a reminder of last season. As good as Stones could be, right now I don't think he has any business being 1st choice CB for a CL and PL title chasing side.

That's not meant to be sour grapes or anything. Players come and go, I was a fan of his from early on but he's been off the boil for a while and still has a big mistake or two in his locker. You could've potentially put down a lot of last season to sulking after not getting the move, but there is more to it than that and he's carried over some of that form into the start of his Man City career.

No, but it's one game more game. I just don't think he's quite ready to be PL/CL title winning CB yet. Man City are in pole position to win the league, so maybe it won't matter and he'll get a PL winner's medal anyway.

I'd not be surprised to see Stones get more games on the bench as the season progresses as Guardiola works on smoothing out his issues.

We shall see.

Agree with Hill, it's not really surprising seeing Stones struggle against the best front three in the world and possibly in the history of the game. Very few CBs are going to come out looking good against them.

If he's judge by how he plays against teams at a more comparable level (chelsea, spurs, Utd,  the shite, arsenal) then I think that's a better reflection of how he's performing.

There is a difference though with Michitarian I think because want he was already there when mourinho arrived?  And the Armenian isn't even making the squad after testing it up last year.

Nice to see Man City and Guardiola struggling, six games without a win the longest in his managerial career.

I wonder if he'll be all fidgity in his press conference like he was last week when asked about their run of form. Swivelling on his chair, rubbing his nose, itching his ear and generally looking ill at ease.

I think if he fails to get a win against Bournemouth or Hull they will bin him off

The image a lot of people have from Moyes sides is that they are hard working, well organised defensively and hard to beat but lacking in flair

He's managed to lose all the positive points and regained the negative!

I Think mentally the United shambles has messed him up forever and that he won't ever recover

Not far off

“We had to hang in during the first half, because I thought Arsenal were good in that first half. I said to the players at half-time, ‘We’re still in the game here – keep it going and keep trying to stay with it’.

“As it was we got back into the game, and I thought at that time we were actually the better team. We had just grown into the game and made a couple of opportunities.

“I didn’t think we collapsed after that – I thought we lost to quality goals and (Arsenal’s) ability to bring Giroud off the bench.

“When you play Arsenal, they’re really good at cutting you open. They’ve got great combinations and they can play through you so the biggest thing for me was to lose goals from crosses. We lost the first two goals from crosses and then the third goal was from a corner kick.”

I'm not too sure but I think they've already started the process of knocking WHL down and the building work etc meant that they could not meet uefa requirements.

I also think Tottenham are due to play all their domestic home fixtures at Wembley next year too so hopefully it'll have the same impact on them in the premier league :)

I'm not liking this season so far. I fear it's only going to get worse, as their run until the end of the year is pretty nice looking from their perspective.

They have to play:
Southampton
Sunderland
Bournemouth
West Ham
Middlesbrough
Us
Stoke

Finally Man City Dec 31st (at home).

They're not losing any of those games, and they may well get maximum points too.

Going to have to get used to them being at the top of the league I fear.

Just really have a horrible feeling they will do it this year, there should be enough quality at the top to ensure they wont walk it but I just think there is a certain sense of inevitability about them this year sadly.

I don't think anyone is going too overboard, but like Leicester last season early form can't be discounted purely as an aberration.

They've been the most consistent team in the league...hence going top today. Plus you can't discount they've played a lot of tough away games already.

I'd feel far better if they dropped points sooner rather than later. The pressing style might well be an issue and we can hope that like Tottenham of last season they run out of steam by the end.

Ugh. You can almost map out the next few years of English football.

1. Gareth Southgate gets the job.
2. We get through qualifying, because there are shit teams in the group.
3. We play like shit in the tournament and get knocked out because the fact is we've been playing shit all along but we finally have to play one or two good teams.
4. Let Gareth Southgate stay in the job.
5. Repeat steps 2 and 3 until sacked.

I think international management will suit him, I've said it before. He ca concentrate on his footballing philosophy and won't ruin the player by neglecting set pieces, defending etc because they will have that for 9 months of their year at their respective clubs. It could be a win win. Plus, he's a really nice guy so I wish him success.

Stones going on walkabout there and should have done better for the first as well. Hoddle commented earlier how good it was the Dier just drops into defence when Stones brings the ball out, probably because Dier knows it's coming straight back and there would be a big hole in defence if he didn't.

Spurs finances have been way ahead of ours for years, it's more their poor use of funds and management appointments and our better use of funds during the Moyes years that kept us close. I'm pretty sure our turnover with the new TV money is now only about the same as Spurs was before the TV money?

Toronto won 5-2 with 2 goals in extra-time (7-5 on aggr) and will face Seattle in the final December 10th in Toronto. A first for the MLS.
Crowd were amazing. Full house. 32 thousand last night. 62 thousand in Montreal last week. Millions watching on telly.
Non-stop singing/chanting from both sets of fans for the duration. Flares/Ultra's/megaphones, the lot.

The birds a 'soccer' fan now after watching that, no time for the Premier League after watching Everton et al. Hilarious. Granted Altidore was the best player on the pitch but who gives a fuck.

I'm really starting to dislike Dele Alli. Spurs with another non penalty and Kane gets another goal for his tally that'd look far poorer without all these penalties they're getting.

Back to Alli though, another dive by him. No media scrutiny though.

4-0 now.

If Swansea are still in the bottom 3 come Jan (looking likely) I would tempt them with a cheeky £20-25M bid for Siggurdson.

He will most likely want to move.

Burnley vs Bournemouth yesterday

Took me back to a few years ago working that fixture in the Bournemouth end.

Was talking to a manc who moved down to Bournemouth who decided to follow them instead of united as he had enough of modern football.

He was telling me Bournemouth will be in the premier league and Eddie Howe will go on to manage England.

Didn't think much of it at the time, but he was spot on.

At the time of that game both teams were bottom of the championship. Good to see them both get to where they are now.

Just watched the Vardy incident. I don't think it was malicious by Vardy, he was clearly going for the ball...however would be filed under reckless as he both feet went off the ground (by some distance) and had the timing been even slightly off it could've been a really bad tackle. Don't think there is enough to get them to overturn the decision, he'll get 3 games off for that.

The Roho one against us was far more cynical though for me.

That's top end with add ons but considering his age and ability he's worth the gamble.

I'd much rather see that sort of move than say £25m on a 27/28 year old journeyman.

Decent game this South Coast derby. Bournemouth's ground has something about it that makes the pitch look small, and the goals look massive. Feels like every attack at both ends is going to result in a goal.

The kinds of players and characters they buy, I'd guess. As Ram alludes to, Xhaka is meant to be the new gritty, solid player that makes them a more robust team but in reality he's a faux hardman who goes missing a lot.

And Ozil is frankly embarrassing without the ball. It doesn't matter how talented you are, you just can't let one of your players walk around and let people run past him. Sanchez is just as talented and look at the work he puts in every single game.

Yeah Sanchez was the only one pressing, Neville alluded to it in second half, the midfielders were walking around the pitch. Not good enough, again.

Dunno if people saw Sunday Supplement this morning, but it's a brilliant watch. G Neville going toe-to-toe with 4 journos about the quality of sports journalism, the Karius stuff, his time at Valenica etc, and it gets fairly heated and adversarial:

No, the question is whether a genuine attempt to win the ball had been made. A mistimed tackle is yellow, but a tug of the shirt is a red.

Fair play if you're confident there. I'm never that way where Liverpool are concerned...but that's my own hang ups.

All I'd say though is Chelsea were dire at the start of the season and I think they already lost to Liverpool at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea have clearly turned things around but Liverpool have pretty much matched them...and who is to say Chelsea won't regress a little? Or maybe in the second half of the season other managers will figure out their current system a second time around. I mean even just as far as Everton were concerned you'd be hard pressed to not think we'd be more competitive next time (hopefully). Much like Man City seemed like the likely front runners in the first 10 games, but I'd not place money on them now as more teams have worked out ways of getting points off them.

Chelsea are only 6pts ahead after winning 13 on the bounce. They clearly will drop points at some point...and then that divide could be tested. Plus Liverpool pretty much played all their direct rivals away from home already.

I'd rather be cautious where Liverpool is concerned. I'd be much happier once they drop some points.

They've faced all sorts of different tasks during this winning run and passed every one with flying colours. The only reason they lost to Liverpool and Arsenal earlier this season was because it was before Conte changed systems.

He went unbeaten in his first season at Juventus (they finished 7th the season before) and broke the 100 point barrier in his final season.

The league is his bread and butter. They don't have a performance like that of Liverpool's Bournemouth away in them in my opinion and I think they'll have it wrapped up in April.

Don't get me wrong, I certainly hope so and I'd certainly agree Chelsea are playing the best of everyone in the league right now. However, they've just equalled Arsenal's 13 game winning record, they wobbled a bit at home against Stoke(!) who haven't been tearing it up recently...there is a reason runs like that are difficult to achieve and maintain as even if they don't lose they'll drop points before long as it's a tough league particularly away from home. I mean it'd not be too surprising with Spurs' defensive solidity for them to get a point would it? Or what if Costa gets injured and their focal point to most their attacks goes away..?

That said Liverpool are certainly capable of dropping points too. I'd just be far happier for them to do so before Chelsea.

It's going to be a close top 4 this year. The Spurs v Chelsea game will probably determine whether Spurs can stay on the periphery of a title race or the periphery of a place in the top 4. Man United are getting their stuff together and I don't think Arsenal are out of things yet...they need a big performance against the likes of Liverpool or Chelsea to put themselves in proper contention.

No wonder Blackburn are in trouble with Charlie fucking Mulgrew playing for them.

That's not a red for me in the West Ham game.

Both players went in the same way.

Honestly, video refs or something...there needs to be an experiment. So many poor decisions already this season.

They've benifted from some shit referring over bad tackles recently.

Think that could go either way but Jones reaction probably swings it like Gana's did for Rojo.

Jones goes in worse.

Yeah, in his favour is he got to the ball but yeah he went in off the ground too and with more force.

Mike Dean having a shocker.

He's weak as piss. He just gives decisions in response to players' reactions or how loud the crowd is. It's pathetic to see a man with so little personality and will.
