  1. ...at full time Sky Sports reporter Geoff Shreeves informing Ivanovic he would miss the final thanks to picking up a yellow card...nice!I didnt know whether to laugh (confess I did)...or cry for the fella: he looked shell shocked (judge for yourself here): http://whatculture.com/sport/barcelona-v-chelsea-watch-geoff-shreeves-break-ivanovics-heart.phpTell us about witnessing your own verbal faux pas. My own contribution is a week after a job interview once my boss said "You should''nt have turned down that job offer last week...we have to make you redundant" I swear he had a smile on his face.
  2. Good article, thanks; I have been impressed with Neville''s analysis this season...
  3. Tevez''s general demeanor and ''golf swing'' celebration is a real piss take. MC fans have too quickly forgotten that his selfish golf sojourn to Argentina will probably be the primary reason they fail to win the title. I salute their manager and the team performance but have contempt for him. I hope he goes to another country to wallow in own arrogance and self importance...
  4. Anyone would expect the current top 8 to be above city. But...that makes us Top of the 2nd tier...incredible...hats off to the management team, the players and the support!
  5. I acknowledge we are doing much better than expected in the Premier but do people believe the overall standard is dropping?I note Athletic Bilbao are in a similar position to us in La Liga yet they looked fantastic against Man Utd home and away and played them off the park with skill and speed.I think the current top four in the Premier are good but even they would struggle to get in the top 4 in La Liga. There is not really that much to choose between the rest in the Premier League, including us. Wigan outplayed Chelsea at times yesterday and are a good footballing side yet look where they are.Anyone have ideas where it is going wrong for the Premier League? Some of the games (i.e. Stoke v Wolves) are dross.On a positive note I am sure NCFC can progress next year but its such a thin line between success and failure in this league cos everyone but the top 4 are similar.
  6. A proper footballer...http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/17598979
  7. Am I the only person who cringes at OTBC...its unique because its shite and nobody else wants it. I also hate the choice of music before the game and after each goal...there, said it!
  8. Agree with Jas...most chants are just way past their sell by date including OTBC. We should have more originality and take a leaf from some of the European Cup teams that play in this country. Most English chants sound so tame these days; we need more that intimidate opposition teams and fans alike.
  9. Good article on a good blog site...http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/kevin-graham/grant-holt-the-hard-yards_b_1386562.html?ref=uk-sport
  10. I too expressed concerns at this tactic last year, we will give too many goals away this year if we persist. Legend, you say ''in theory'' this works but it does not unfortunately work in practise because we simply do not have the players in defence skilled enough to play this passing game across the back; they look as nervous as hell when they are doing it. Not only that but premier teams are wise to this tactic and will just refuse to be drawn in, allowing the supporters and then the team to lose patience, leading to the inevitable mistakes. Also, as you rightly point out we do not have the right movement in midfield. Maybe its work in progress, but they need to get it right quickly!
  11. Unusually for a footballer, its a very interesting read...
  12. I agree with WSC...he is going to be that good...
  13. Why keep him until the end of August? Even with the best ethics and intentions surely he will have one eye if not both on recruiting for his new club...
