  1. The man who we all love to hate, Southgate, made Billy Gilmour. It was Southgate's dour tactics against Scotland when we forfeited midfield to make sure we kept a clean sheet that gave Gilmour all the room to express himself with room to play. That performance by his opposition gave a very wrong assessment of the player. The moment he played against proper teams who had competitive midfields he was lost, and still is. His long term home will be the Scottish Premiership if he is lucky.
  2. Did you watch the Formula 1 yesterday? It was in Abu Dhabi I believe. Not too much heard about the oppression of LGBT rights there. Still that's the elite sport of motor racing not the working class game football. Hypocrites. Abu Dhabi Article 80 of the Abu Dhabi Penal Code makes sodomy punishable by imprisonment of up to 14 years. Several news reports have revealed how the law is typically enforced. Cross-dressing is also likewise illegal. In 2005, 26 young men were arrested at an Abu Dhabi hotel after police discovered the men engaging in cross-dressing and homosexual practices. In discussing the raid, Mohammed bin Nukhaira Al Dhahiri, Minister of Justice, Islamic Affairs and Auqaf stated, "There will be no room for homosexual and queer acts in the UAE. Our society does not accept queer behaviour, either in word or in action".Initial reports suggested that some of these men were ordered to be given experimental hormone treatments, although the Government subsequently backed off from these statements. The men were all given a five-year prison sentence. On 9 August 2017, Emirati police in Abu Dhabi detained two Singaporean nationals in a shopping mall. A court convicted them of crimes and sentenced them to one year in prison "for attempting to resemble women". The UAE deported them on 28 August after they spent nearly three weeks in custody, much of that time in a cell they said was designated for "effeminate" people.
  3. No, he is being honest. Yes, it was a very good goal but that does not make Bali a good defender. I would much rather see him as a winger than a full back. Bali has always seemed to be a reactive player rather than a proactive one, hopefully he now gives his game a great deal more thought and will blossom into a very good player ................ for us.
  4. Don't bank on Mumba being a full time replacement. He is very much a wing back and not the large, muscular full back that Smith prefers.
  5. I felt the same until I saw Swansea's style of play, now I'm undecided.
  6. Yes, it seems quite obvious to me that Norwich have, overall, the better players. But Luton were by far the better team, and that is what it is all about.
  7. Why do referees hold up play to warn players about what is happening in the penalty area before corners. Let the corner be taken and if there is a foul penalise it. Surely it is as simple as that?
  8. I fully agree with you, it appears that many people watch the game but see very little.
  9. I am not a Kenny lover, and I wish he wasn't good enough to get into the team, but the time to drop him isn't when he has been better than most of the team he has been playing with. I agree that we should have better, especially after the money spent trying to replace him. But at the moment we haven't.
  10. And Krul, Aarons, Omobamidele, Nunez, Ramsey and Gibbs were all better?
  11. Amazing really that McLean was as good as most last week but people still want him out and complain about Smith picking him every match. Probably the same people wish we still had Daniel Farke, but what do you know, Daniel picked Kenny every match as well. Perhaps this should tell you he isn't as bad as you think.
  12. For Dowell to get onto the pitch before Sara is very concerning.
  13. Admire that touch, admire the way the ball is protected the moment he has control, admire the coolness of the finish but most of all admire the player.
  14. Remember it well, I was in the River End and even from there Gordon Banks looked very formidable. It was no surprise that Terry Alcock failed to score, Banks was at the time the best in the world and was enough to intimidate anyone.
