  1. Exactly, not a case of manager telling players to give up but when your coasting 4-0 up the intensity and urgency simply isn’t there, although you could argue a sense of freedom can improve play but it always felt in the second half that Liverpool had more gears if needed. Rather than take a false comfort from thinking we ‘won’ a half I personally prefer to take comfort from the comments of their players staff and fans who on the whole seem impressed with our display and think we will do fine. They play relegation candidates often but we rarely play current euro champions so while it’s only 1 game we can take the compliments as a good sign. They will see teams leave Anfield suffering worse score lines this season but not many having created so many chances.
  2. Playing with confidence was so important for the younger players last year, this result could be pretty damaging for sometime if they lose that. They haven’t been helped by the supposedly defensive midfielders but also Farke who I guess is responsible for asking Lewis to man mark VVD at set pieces... honestly it’s a mis-match that could of been avoided and should of been avoided

    Ruddy

    [quote user="ZippersLeftFoot"]gooners also interested in vorm so they are on a keeper hunt...[/quote]

    Julio Cesar is no doubt looking for another club today, Arsenal could do alot worse than picking him up.

    Ruddy

    [quote user="BWE"]Ruddy over Szczęsny?[/quote]

    I think so..just, but it doesnt matter what i think, its what wenger thinks and Szczesny only got back into the team last month due to a rib injury to fabinski so he obviously doesnt have complete faith of his manager.

    Ruddy

    Well it wouldnt be a massive surprise, he''s got the ability to play for a top 6 side but i had hoped that 6 months out injured would have put off any suiters for another season. He wouldnt go somewhere to sit on the bench, he''s had enough of that but I do think he would walk into the arsenal first XI and therefore if they did want him fear he would go.

    Will turn his back on football and become a goat herder in southern somalia, wont play for NCFC again this season.

     

     

    (my information comes from a gut feeling, where did yours come from?)

     

     

  7. [quote user="Alex "]I WAS really looking forward to RVW joining us - BUT, since then, he''s said more than enough to suggest to me that NCFC are just a ''stepping stone'' to him...

    So....

    Bring back the real Grant Holt please...

    Al x[/quote]

    that would be the same Grant Holt that handed in a transfer request pre season and wanted to play for another club that would pay him more money I guess :)

     

    If he scores 10 goals in the prem for us next season he will be considered a failure/waste of money by every canary caller, if he scores 20 goals in the prem for us next season he will want to play for a bigger club (ie michu) so as long as he scores 12-16 goals next season we are golden!

    Maggie: What would be an apt tribute?

    In the same way Gordon Brown did more to boost the conservative vote than Cameron ever could, Morrissey must surely push help push the arguement of those showing respect in the death of Thatcher. If he really believes that Nazi Germany, North Korea and Syria are better places to live than I would gladly help him pack a bag, what an abolute Ipswich fan.

    Nutty - not that I particually disagree with the dangers of generalisation which you have rightly highlighted throughout this thread, but it is really difficult to have any sort of opinion without some degree labeling. If you are to pull someone up for the phase left-wing guys what do you want instead? all the names of the Labour party and their supporters? Im sure you have used generalisations in your posts too, have you never said for example Stoke are a ugly long ball team dispite the fact that the majority of passes are short balls?.. well you get the drift dispite the appaling anaolgy

    One good thing pre-Reading is...

    Yeah thats a fair point GP, I hope you are right, the idea that he will slot back in and perform the same way as he did 5 months ago is a big ask and a risk. Is it worth taking a risk in such a massive game thats all.

    One good thing pre-Reading is...

    I not entirley convinced, Ruddy is of course the better Goalkeeper, but to replace one goalkeeper who is in great form with one who has been out for 5 months injured is a big call to make.

    Brilliant, then do prey tell Larson of Whipsnade, the arson, looting, mugging, assult and murder of the 2011 riots was not a result of a political statement nor by criminal opportunism but by..........  Is this where you tell us they all personally knew Mark Duggan?

     

     

    [/quote]Do some reading instead of loitering on here . Every single aspect of the riots was extensively researched  by the London School of Economics and the Joseph Rowntree Foundation. I am much surprised they did not just contact you instead and saved themselves a year of painstaking investigation .....after all you seem to know everything with out even leaving your armchair.http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/series/reading-the-riots

    [/quote]

     

    So you believe this extensively researched report when it says

     

    Many rioters conceded that their involvement in looting was simply down to opportunism, saying that a perceived suspension of normal rules presented them with an opportunity to acquire goods and luxury items they could not ordinarily afford. They often described the riots as a chance to obtain "free stuff" or sought to justify the theft.

     

    Yet when Rock the Boat says

    The riots were an opportunist criminal act where homes and local businesses were destroyed simply because people thought they could get away with it

     

    he needs to see a Doctor specialising in mental health.

    Its almost as contridictory as, I dont know, maybe telling me I should leave my armchair and read more. In my opinion the people involved in the riots did not all have the same reason for doing so, some like Rock said just wanted to take advantage of the situation and travelled miles to do so, others were making a statement about government or policing, some had other reasons. Do i need to be an expert in the social sciences to hold such an opinion, nope. Am I going to publish my opinion? nope. Will I let one report fully dictate my opinion without question? nope (although is very broadly in line with my thoughts on the matter).

    Maggie: What would be an apt tribute?

    Wouldnt blame you Rock for not wanting to return to the thread as the debates are turning to insults but I just wanted to check that i understand you right. If 5% of a community (and thats being generous, probably more like 2%) riot and turn the streets into a war zone, then we should abandon the other 95% of law abiding and tax paying citizens? and that I am wrong to say we should use tax payers money to help rebuild instead leaving them to live in what has been left?

     

    the reason way Nutty jumped on you is because effectively by saying we should not help rebuild you are punishing those people in the community who did not riot, treating everyone from that city or community the same (undeserving of help).

     

    While not part of any strike action (school age at the time) my understanding of it is very similar to Rocks in that there was no middle ground for workers to occupy, either you were with the union or against. being nice to fellow workers you did not strike was not an option, those that did work were outcast, the enemy. In this sense the unions acted more like Thatcher than Thatcher herself, as long as we get what we want to hell with the consequences for everyone else, not our problem!

    [quote user="Javiers Deaf Translator"]but as I said earlier, I''m also not sure if this is the way to go, I do think a simple ref mic hooked up to the stadium sound system would solve most issues.[/quote]

    Really? I can''t see how this would help at all. Would make it even harder to get a decision away at places like Old Trafford and the Emirates.

    [/quote]

    Agree. In most cases where a poor or incorrect decision is made, we as the watching public know why hes made it. We knew at the weekend why arsenal got a penalty (the linesman saw kel pull him to the ground) and having that conversation available for all to hear would have made no difference would it?
