RE: Football discussion thread


I absolutely agree. ITV let the fans down on that front. Even the TV magazines had it scheduled until 10.30 so its not as if people were tuning in for it. They should have spent more time on the reaction.


I feel really sorry for Arsenal but actually think the ref did ok. Henry was just angry about his yellow card. He didn't take any of Barca's diving which most people would have expected him to do, and he gave Arsenal a dodgy free kick that they scored from.


A few more yellows for Barcelona should have been given and Henrik Larsson should have been sent off for deliberate handball, deliberate obstruction and time wasting when he tried to rip the ball out of Almunias hand in the last minute.


But it was fair enough on the whole.

the othern thing that got me was only 3 mins extra time!! 3mins you have to be kidding, when arsenal were leading they were constantly wasting time then when barcelona where they were wasting time. if it had still be 1-0 to the arsenal there would have been a riot at such a short allowance.


i had forgotten about that player delibertaly knocking the ball out, that should have been sending off cause it was a cynical foul was it not?

So Thierry stays at Arsenal. The way he spoke about Barca after the game I didn't think he'd leave.


Next big problem. Will big Davie Weir stay at my club, Everton?

we have a great team coming through, the legendary theo, rvp, reyes (my fav) cesc, eboue, toure, flami.


a set back, but the feeling of injustice etc will only make the kids fight harder.


we need a good young keeper really, and maybe a few depth players, but  ithink arsene's got a lot of cash to splash as well

yes i think he'll make a few quality buys After watching the world cup (not a rash buy like SAF over Rio after the 2002 WC).


Fran Merida looks set to the club ... he's younger and meant to be even more of a wonderkid than theo!!!!

I think Kuschak at West Brom could do a job at a big club (in goal)

Listening to the England game on 5 live....you have to laugh at Alan Green and company....they are almost screaming at the team....."why are they not doing this....why not that....isnt that awful...." you would think that they are playing against a pub team and should be winning 12-0 within the first 5 mins....thank heaven Im a Scot

GO SCOTLAND !!!

(Bye the way...we won...we won..we won 2-1 !!!)

England were abysmal.

Back page of the Sun today. John Terry:

"NO EXCUSES. WE MUST WIN"

After the game. Steve Mclaren full of EXCUSES. "Ball in the box, created chances etc. etc." B*****T Steve. If you really love your country you will resign and give us a chance of qualifying.

I've got a mate who went to the Andorra game. He wanted me to go with him, but the initial expense was too much for me to do it.

But after watching that and the Israel game, I was glad I didn't. I came close to switching off the TV after the first half on Wednesday night.

And, in answer to the question that kicked off the thread - Tranmere Rovers and NEWI Cefn Druids.
