Might as well kick off with a nice gentle one !! What's going on a Reading don't understand making that decision whats anyone's thoughts on the new manager ? Di canio early fave but he's surely to weird for for them ? Robbie matteo has surely got to be the sensible choice ? Long shot but any reading fans got any thoughts ?!!!!

Seems that it's often the case that any past success counts for nothing. So much money involved these days that its far more important than anything else sadly...

... I think it would be interesting if Managers could only come and go in the transfer window... then the Chels would only be restricted to 2 managers a year...

Well aren't Western Sydney Wanderers doing well. I have waited 34 years to have a team I actually identify with and at the moment they are top of the ozy A-League. I know they are going to be down years but they have me hooked. About the only time I ever wear a fully synthetic top, outside work. Even then I normally wear coordinated FP underneath. C'mon you Hoops.

Remember my club Bristol City going to Reading back in the early 80's when they were at Elm Park (a right old dump it was) but that had a good centre forward in Trevor Senior. I got a feeling it was when we were both in the 4th Division. Got a little heated on the terraces if I recall. Look at the Club now and how they've progressed. Wish my club had progeressed along the same lines.

Yes, I think so and in looking forward to it.

However, to be fair, I wasn't complaint during our recent "glory years" but for a while there seemed no reason to be suspicious. Enjoyed about 5 trips to wembley for fa cup semis and finals and a charity shield too I think.

Won't be back for a good while I think.

Always amazed how footie fans constantly demand more and more spending on players, but then moan about the price of tickets.

It's as if they expect the 'money fairy' to come along and pay all those transfer fees, wages etc.

When Morgan was in for buying Liverpool I wasn't thrilled but to be fair I think he's done a decent job at Wolves. You can't keep expecting him to put millions of pounds into a club losing money. Also clubs aren't that easy to sell now.

I don't expect Morgan to keep splashing money at Wolves, but I do expect him to take some responsibility for shambles that has happened over the last few years. His managerial decisions have been attrocious!

It annoys me that the semi finals are at Wembley. Look at last season, all of merseyside travelling down south when they could of been going to Old Trafford/Villa park.

You're right though all the FA are bothered about is sitting in their boxes at Wembley for the final once a year.

Does anyone else apart from me refrain from referring to their chosen team as "we" or "us"? To me they're "they".

Despite being a season ticket holder at QPR since I was a kid I don't feel I (or my fellow sufferers) are part of the club.   This may be down to the way the club treats its fans and the separation between the two. Interested in how others feel. I know it's only words but always feels weird to say "we lost/we won" (not that the second one crops up much).

i still say "we" too .... and as posted before, we're going through that community ownership programme.

i can fully see how you can start to feel less part of it ....... especially when large sums of money start to get spent. i started to feel a bit uneasy when we started to spend big money on players that clearly weren't interested ...... jermaine defoe being a prime example.

Title: Re: The official Modculture football thread
Post by: carllalala on March 19, 2013, 10:13:42 AM
I thought it was a harsh sacking, looking at the money the manager has had to spend.

A good sensible choice would be Nigel Adkins, and the club should look to consolidate the squad, and be ready for a promotion campaign next season, but I think theI hope for the fans they dont get into too much trouble (Leeds style).

You rate him, Dave? He has a decent track record in the Championship, but he seems to get sacked quite a lot?? It's a difficult one, we need a long-term plan to get back into the Prem and be able to compete there. But is a manager with Prem experience going to drop a division or, if he's not in work, was he sacked for not cutting it in the Prem?  :-\

No, I loathe and detest him. I'm just amazed how Bolton fans got loads of crap for getting on his back, yet no other club (aside from a brief Wednesday stint) have given him a look in.

If he was good as the media said he was at the time (and he said he was himself), would have thought he'd have been on everyone's short list!

Saying that, he could probably do a job somewhere, if getting the fans onside and attractive football weren't a priority,

I don't like him or rate him and, as you allude to in your final comment, he generally fails to get the fans onside. Whoever takes over at Leeds needs to do that, and get the side playing decent football. 5000 off our average gate this season suggests the fare on offer isn't attractive to any but the most die-hard

I always use "We" when talking about football..
It is silly I suppose , but I do feel part of a big family , the same sense of belonging I enjoy as being a Mod.
No matter where I've been in the world I can seek out fellow Mods and fellow Celtic supporters..

a big run of games coming up, will we fall away like we did for the last couple of seasons under Redknapp? I hope not but as a Spurs supporter, you get used to these things! Anyway at the start of the season with a new manager - and I do rate AVB - and Modric and VDV leaving and Kaboul out long term injured, many thought that this would be a big transitional year and to be honest to still be in 4th and where we are in Europe, more than happy. Missing Sandro, who up until his injury, had been excellent. Like Holtby and hope  that he gets more playing time

Big summer for Spurs coming up, keep Bale and bring in a couple of world class players especially a striker and I think they could challenge for everything. I watched them against Liverpool (my team) and for about 40 mins they were the best team to play at Anfield since Rafa Benitez's Valencia.

Another Leeds fan here, of 20+ years! Good to have a manager who singles out a young defender, who has been one of the few shining lights of the season, for one mistake, and tells the media he "could kill him". Unbelievable stuff.  I am based overseas but have watched 90% of this season´s games through LUTV/Sky/streams and the football is terrible, there seems to be no real gameplan at all, Paddy Kenny and the defenders just hoofing it, hit and hope. The way he treated the 9th best LUFC goalscorer of all time was, to quote Becchio himself, "f**king unbelievable". Horrible horrible man, Colin Wanker.

Watching the Derby game on a stream today, it´s a completely meaningless game now though. Hope the supporters give him grief, fortunately he will be gone very soon. Now that Adkins has gone to Reading, Poyet is someone I´d like too, plays football the right way. A lot depends on what happens with the ownership thing, the current owners appear to be completely potless.

Well put, Pekko, Warnock rates one of the worst I've experienced in almost 40 yrs as a Leeds fan. He should have been sacked in January, but this board are clueless as well as potless. Supposedly, Poyet would be interested but could GFH sell the club to him? Big challenge, but he's on a good thing at Brighton, so I'm not convinced he'd come. McDermott maybe?

As a wee aside oan how supporters get treated these days - some heavy handed treatment gettin' meted oot regularly under the fitba legislation passed in Scotland.

Celtic's Green Brigade supporters group planned a peaceful demo against the polis methods a couple ay weeks back n' here's how the polis reacted when they tried tae assemble fur a silent march tae the stadium.

No sure how much publicity it goat doon here.


Hearin' that supporters ay other clubs includin' the 3rd Division winners huv faced harrassment fae the polis oan a regular basis n'aw.

Although I am a Spurs supporter (and we are getting to the time of year when it all goes wrong) I have been living the life of the non-league supporter over the last few months by following Tunbridge Wells in the FA Vase. It is great to be able to go to the pub with a few mates before the game, turn up 20 minutes before kick off and just pay at the turnstile to get in and then stand and watch the match. Following some nail biting games little old Tunbridge Wells have made it to the FA Vase final at Wembley on May 4th. It has been a great experience following the cup run and it appears most of Tunbridge Wells will be at Wembley and just shows you don't need the Premier League, Champions League etc to enjoy football.

Ah wis bringin' up heavy handed policin' & attempts to clamp doon oan a supporters group that helps create an great atmosphere in the stadium.

Surely that comes under the "strictly football" category?

They wur also responsible for the best stadium display seen aw season anywhere - paid for by the Green Brigade themselves, no the club.

Ah'd hoped the days ay treatin' supporters like scum might've gone for good in the light ay the Hillsborough enquiry - but auld polis attitudes obviously havenae changed much.

The Celtic situation is interesting. I dunno how often this happens but when we played Pompey last season it was a "bubble" match. When you brought a ticket it included a "coach" ticket. That was the only way to get down there. Once there you had no opportunity to enjoy the scenic delights of the city or enjoy the hospitality of the local alehouses.You were "kettled " into the ground and the same on the way back. Obviously no booze you were over thoroughly searched on the coach many of the girls had there various sprays confiscated and not returned (they could be used as mace-lite or turned into lethal flame throwers) and so on. Apparently our friends from the East were given the same treatment on the way here.

No a member ay the Green Brigade but they ur gettin' constantly filmed, stopped, searched, etc.

At the end ay the day they ur an Ultras group, no hooligans - songs, banners, stadium displays, etc. is thir game.

Worst hing they huv done is set off some smoke bombs & flares which ah believe led tae a debate wi' the disabled supporters group - cos they wur catchin' the effects fur longer than wis comfortable.  That unforseen situation noo sorted as far as ah know.

Save the heavy treatment fur actual criminals.

Cheap match and season tickets, safe standing, beer in the grounds etc leads to full houses, great atmospheres and two CL semi-finalists. You're right, the German model looks a winner, but would it work in Britain?

I agree about the German model being the best all round for fans but I too can't see anything changing in England for the foreseeable - Sky and the Premier League have it sown up too tight. Conversely due to clubs overreaching themselves to reach/stay in the Prem/Footy league and going bust it has lead to the fan owned club - congrats to Pompey supporters on that one, it was disgusting to see what was happening to your club - which can only be a good thing.

On a lighter note, and one for all fellow West Ham fans, I read something in the Standard last night that made me chuckle to myself. Apparently Big Sam is 'considering' whether to play Andy Carroll over Carthorse Cole. If that's true then he's surely not fit to run my Vets team - even our gaffer could work that one out and he's gash - surely a no-brainer?

I'm not a West Ham fan Iain so haven't seen much of Cole this season but really didn't think he was that bad?! Remember the time before last West Ham were relegated I thought he looked capable of playing at least in the top 6.
Being a Liverpool fan I wasn't keen to see Carroll leave but like what Rodgers is doing, although it will take a while longer.

Any other Stoke fans on here or am I the only one?

Anyway it's getting a bit too close for comfort for us now and we are in genuine trouble and with Man Utd today I don't hold out much hope, apparently according to several newspapers this morning if we get badly beaten today then Pulis could be sacked, personally I am not an admirer of him but I think it would be harsh at this point to get rid, he's done a hell of a lot for this club, it may not have been pretty but he's brought us into the top flight and until this season been fairly consistent, F.A cup final, Europe etc.

I think we'll be safe this season, I'm sure we'll get some points from either QPR, Norwich, Sunderland or Southampton but I think at the end of the season I'd like to see a new manager come in, maybe put Pulis upstairs in a different role because if we do stay up it'll be by the skin of our teeth and I don't think we'd be so lucky next season with Pulis still in charge.

I'm a tim, but I'd still like United to hold on to their team for a wee while, they're a really good team to watch. Their second goal on Sunday was a cracker.

Aye, Stokes deserves a wee shot in the team for a bit. See to be honest, I'm not massively convinced by Watt. Barcelona aside, he's not really done enough for us. Plus Lennon seems quite happy to leave him out, which maybe tells its own story.

My club is FC United of Manchester, anyone from around the NW and fancies taking their nippers along , kids go free.
For the adults there`s a scooter exhibition and some nice bars in the ground with some nice ales on the go.
FC are right up amongst the play off places so a big match tomorrow. Details below -

YOUTH UNITED DAY
This Saturday 20th April 2013, FC United will once again be hosting the ever popular Youth United Day at Gigg Lane.
This is a tremendous event and another occasion that marks FC as an inclusive, forward thinking club. It will be a fun day out for kids of all ages (that includes most of the Main stand then...) and, in addition, allows free entry for all under 18’s for the home game against Worksop Town. The following events for children will be available for free on the forecourt at the ground from 12.30 pm until kick off at 3.00 pm:-
- A climbing wall (with no age or height restrictions, perfect for the Main standers mentioned above)
- A clown/circus skills act (Got anything lined up for us, Vinny?)

well ..... a strange couple of days for us. relegation confirmed on tuesday, the trust confirmed as owners and we're out of administration on friday. 10 points deducted saturday ....... followed by our biggest crowd of the season (18500) against sheffield utd who i think are in the playoff part of the table .... beat them 3-0 with probably our best display of the season and a fantastic atmosphere. shelf utd fans not happy!

Ha Ha .... yes. It was strange really. They had been allocated a whole end of our ground, holds about 3000 or so I think. It seemed about two thirds full, which is not bad ....... although well down on the time i remember years ago when they filled the end (terraced) and there were people climbing fences to get at each other, pitch invasion etc. I thought they seemed a bit subdued bearing in mind they're at the good end of the table. But they dod also have a shocker, pretty much nothing came off for them .... stray passes, miss-controlling easy balls into touch etc .... and some pretty poor efforts on goal.

However, it was a particularly good atmosphere for us ..... with all the crooks we've had dragging us down in recent years it was great to be free, even if it means we're back down in the (old) 4th division again. and most of our team played really well (even Johnny Ertl who I've been wondering most of the season how he ever became a footballer! Anyway, onwards and upwards!

Well done to United on winning (running away with) the league.

Sickens me to see them win the league on the same day our best player is once again in trouble with the FA. Fair play to United, they lost the league on goals last year so went out and sorted a quality goal scorer. Just hope we can sort ourselves out this summer and make a serious assault on the league next year.

As a supporter of a Community owned club (Chester FC)  how do other fans of other clubs see
the future of football?
With Portsmouth now joining this band of community clubs it will obviously become more high profile media wise.
I know from my perspective for us to continiue with our success (we have just been promoted to the Blue Square Bet Conference) having won three Championships in the last three years we are going to have to find more revenue streams if we are to challenge in this league.

Personally I think we will have to consider selling some  equity (under strict controls) if we ever want to get back to being a  football league club as I dont think our fanbase can sustain us financially to make a challenge.

I am an FC United of Manchester founder member and season ticket holder, not been back to OT since the Glazer take over. Love what we`ve got going on with focus on the community as much as on the field. We are a one member ,one vote set up and it is written into our charter that we will remain that way.
I came over to Chester FC for the game last year and enjoyed the rivalry. It would be a shame if you started selling your equity to some money man purely to keep progressing through the leagues. Surely you would rather have a period of sitting in the same division rather than letting the money men have a say again ?
I respect Pompey fans for doing what they have done, good luck to them.

I'm looking forward to next year with great optimism, but also realism. We are not going to be the FA Cup winning Pompey of recent years and we're not going to have a packed ground every match like the premiership years. However, Its great to be rid of the leeches and I think we'll still draw a decent crowd every game, around 12000 or so I reckon. Which is not bad for what is essentially the 4th division!

So, we've got locals running the club and an ex pompey "hero" managing it, with a few of our other "legends" seemingly involved in the set up too!

Hi Laird.....we've just released him,looked okay at times but just didn't train on......wether that was down to Arfield being in and out of the side or just that he wasn't good enough I don't know but in three years he was with us he's probably the same player that walked through the door. He's still young enough to have a decent career and i'm sure someone will snap him up as a free agent.
Callum Woods,who we got from Dunfermline (I think) is doing okay for us and kept Paul Dixon out of the side for the last few weeks of the season.

If he's a freebie ah'm sure he'll appeal tae most ay the teams in Scotland cos he'll be within the right price range.

Agree completely, now would be the best time to get someone new in too, with the over haul the squad needs its perfect for a new man come in and put his own stamp on it.

Looking forward to Sunday though, it seems the club has finally pulled their finger out with regards to our 150th anniversary, still not sure I'll be able to bring myself to actually wear the free shirt though  ;).

I'm suprised you are having a go at your manager.....from an outsiders point of view he looks to have done an excellent job keeping a club of your size in the prem for a few seasons without ever looking like going down aswell as an FA cup final.

He has done a good job but the football is dire and we've been going backwards for the last 12 moths, for 100mil spent he should be doing better imo. Thankful for what hes done but its time to part ways and get some new ideas into the club.

As there have been this season - Fuilham, the Man U games, the 2nd half against Chelsea etc.

Sure the long ball up to Carroll/CFC has been employed as a weapon this lazy journo led nonsense that we play "hoofball" all the time is a load of BS!!

The   football this season had been nowhere near as dire as some make out - we mix & match & after being everyone's soft touch for years, I feel no pain in knowing this West Ham side are nobody's pushovers

However you can't play like Barca unless you have the likes of Xavi & Iniesta to make it work (& to be honest that tippy-tappy stuff can be pretty boring til Messi explodes into action) and we are playing the type of (percentage) football that we have to given the level of players we can afford

If Large Samuel really only wanted to play the type of hoofball we are (unjustly) accused of, would he be signing the likies of Jarvis, Vaz Te, Joe Cole, Diame etc ?

As a Hammer for nearly 50 years - I'd have to say the last 2 seasons have made a refreshing change from the "nice" (i.e. losing) football we've had to put up with for years. There's a reason most fans of other clubs used to like West Ham as a second club, summed up by Shankley in the 60's "'I love coming down to London to play West Ham. You get a great game of football and two points"

I for one am glad to see a West Ham team with a bit of fight & team spirit that are nobody's pushover any more!

Fair point Ian and well made, unfortunately I am only basing what I said on what I've actually seen this season which hasn't been pretty and from reports of long-time season ticket holding mates - one of whom is notoriously pessimistic.

I'm all for playing the percentages too when needed and as I said I'm glad that we are staying up and if we have to play a certain way for a while to stay where we are so be it. I'm also really hopeful we can keep hold of Carroll as I really rate him, and I've got a suspicion he really enjoys it at WHU, I'm just hoping that over the next few seasons we start moving towards a bit more flair in the team.

There's a reason most fans of other clubs used to like West Ham as a second club, summed up by Shankley in the 60's "'I love coming down to London to play West Ham. You get a great game of football and two points"

I for one am glad to see a West Ham team with a bit of fight & team spirit that are nobody's pushover any more!

From what I've seen of you I didn't think you were that bad, not Stoke bad any way (this season) you're right about the journos though, they seem to have to label teams either tippy tappy or hoof never seems to be an in-between with them.

Note about today, how poor was the ref, hope we don't have him ever again.

Any Brentford supporters oan here?

We've goat a pre-season game against youse - whaurs the best area ay yir stadium tae watch fae?


Choices will be as below:


Brentford supporters will be given exclusive use of The Brook Road Stand for the match against Celtic but can buy tickets in all four sides of Griffin Park.

 
Celtic supporters will be allowed to use the other three sides of Griffin Park – The Bees United Stand, on the Braemar Road side of the ground, The BIAS Stand terrace, at the Ealing Road end of the ground, and The Bill Axbey Stand, on the New Road side of the ground.

Read more at http://www.brentfordfc.co.uk/news/article/celtic-psf-ticket-info-846094.aspx#j7Kkx4uRqrlmscBk.99



The terrace sounds good, but if the Lady Laird comes along she'll probably want a seat.


Cheers in advance.

I've been to Griffin Park more times than I'd care to mention, mainly in the 80's and 90's. The away fans get stuck behind the goal which is a pretty poor view if I recall. The ground was a bit of a pit back then. Not sure if it's changed much. The only redeeming feature being ample pubs all around the ground, most serving London Pride which is a decent pint.
Title: Re: The official Modculture football thread

Aye seemingly a pub at each corner ay the ground - which is nice.


Fae whit ah'm hearin' the home support ur gettin' the normal away end wi' Celtic havin' the rest ay the park.


Should be a good day oot n' hopefully Brentford make a few quid oot ay it.

Let us revitalize this thread.

I´ve been getting into the groove big time with the CC Cup, it´s f**king great love it, very entertaining, fills the "no WC/EC" summer hole perfectly.

Love Tahiti, 5 siblings, 3 unemployed, 1 truck driver, 2 factory workers and still were very near to scoring against Spain and did very well for the first 30 mins!

May put some money on them scoring once agains Uruguay...

Yep and Leeds United will not be playing in the Premier League for many many years. Lou Rawls used to sing about the start of a beautiful friendship, well I bumped into the perfect one 20 years ago, would fly over once/twice e a year to beautiful Beeston. LUFC has been destroyed and raped during the past 10 years by a sick twisted criminal and these potless disciples of his. I´m sure some here will take great delight in LUFC`s current demise, but it´s all very sad considering it´s easily the biggest club outside the PL top 4 let alone the Championship.

I still think of Leeds as a 'big club' purely because they have a big set up, catchment, heritage etc etc.

Exactly. Big set up, massive supporter base, Don Revie & his legendary team, only club in one of the biggest cities in the UK, if you´d ask people like Beckenbauer or Platini etc they would say Leeds are still one of the biggest clubs in England.

Third most supported English club in Scandinavia, thousands of Leeds fans in Norway in particular.

Stokes away is shocking, and from the teaser picture the home looks like its going to have a god awful collar on it. Adidas has been awful since we signed for them, the only thing they got close to getting right was our 150th year away top.

stoke remind me a bit of pompey though. tight ground, great atmosphere .... not everyone fancies going there. i did start to worry for you last year, looked like you were going the way we did ..... spending silly money (relative to the size of club) on players and making the mistake of trying to go to the next level and the european spots. it happened with us .... crouch, defoe etc.

As most of the banter on this thread is focused on Scottish Football I will add to the debate, it appears to me that Celtic have become a bit of a selling club despite average home gates of almost 50,000 qualification for the Champions League (well the qualifying stages but they had a very good run last year) and healthy season ticket sales.

Are some of Celtic's players getting so bored of competing in a domestic one horse race that playing for teams in the bottom half of the EPL and in the Championship is more of a challenge or is it all down to money and they can get more lucrative contracts in England?

I don't know much about Scottish footy but the fact that Wilson wants to return to Forest seems odd to me. Granted Nottingham is his hometown and he's apparently struggled to settle in Scotland, but to move from a team getting gates as high as you say, and playing against the likes of Barca to coming back to the championship, it seems a bit odd. Still hope he does come back though!

It's a combination of a number of things. First, the greatest Celtic team of my lifetime was the team that got to Seville. A team full of big players on expensive wages and long-term contracts. It was fantastic while it lasted, but when the players left, we got no money for most of them because they were too old. This meant that we had to muddle along for a few years and rebuild a whole team for absolute peanuts. The successive wingbacks of Lee Naylor and Paul Telfer still give me shivers... Basically, there was a lack of forward thinking on the part of the club.

Now the club seem to be taking on the model of Porto and Lyon, where you can achieve European success through being a place where you bring through excellent young players and sell them on for a large profit. This ties in with a lot of the 'Soccernomics'/'Moneyball' ideas floating about football just now.

When you combine this with the crazy amount of money paid by EPL clubs, you can see why more and more of our players would end up there. The Ki transfer to Swansea is a great example of this, where we got £6m+ for a guy who had never held down a place at Celtic.

So far, Wanyama is the only guy that I really wish we had held on to. A phenomenal player.

I'd be surprised if he left just now. He had a pretty ropey first season, but was much more settled last year. Along with Charlie Mulgrew, he's our most reliable CB. Did he not get messed about quite a bit towards the end of his time at Forest as well?

If he's homesick, it's a different story though.

There were rumours that he got messed about, but I heard from a young lady 'friend' of his that the reason he didn't play much in his last system here was he'd already agreed terms with Celtic before he discussed terms with us... who knows. Apparently he's told a few sources he's coming back next week... but rumours sites are just that, so we'll see...

Been waiting to jump in on this one but not had the guts - its what QPR does to you. You couldn't make up what has gone on the last few years. Every time it looks like things are going better someone always pulls the rug from under your feet! It's a real merry-go-round seems to be about 3 in 3 out per day at the moment. Anyway 2 wins is a great start for us, especially considering what is going on. Think I would enjoy success more in the championship rather than hovvering around the premiership bottom 3 for the last 2 years. Here's hoping

qpr are one of the few teams I, as a forest fan, am fearing this season. Think we got a decent signing in mackie from you though

and now kelvin is back from celtic we must have one of the best back 4s in the league

Yep, Mackie did well for us in championship, never gives up and scored quite a few. Thought he would have played a part for us this season. Hope he does well for you (except when you play us). We have a trend of giving you decent strikers - used to like dexter blackstock, always scored for us.

Another one gone today, Antonio Ferdinand, who will be remembered only for the John terry incident than his performances on the pitch.

We have got you on boxing day at your place. Had that fixture a fair few times on boxing day for some strange reason (bring back local derby's) some of my family went up one boxing day in the snow - got all the way there and game had been called off!

i got to the accrington v pompey game on saturday as i was nearby in blackpool ....... 2-2 draw, although we had enough chances to win. looked pretty good although dodgy defence. just over 1000 pompey fans in a 2500 crowd ....... pretty good bearing in mind its the other end of the country and it was a 12.15 kick off!

our first point!!

another big game this weekend ...... 16000 in for the visit of chesterfield (1000 form chesterfield - a good turnout). better crowd than all of league 2, league one and most of the championship.

sadly, lost 2-0. david connolly sent off at the end of the first half for "violent conduct". he was denied what looked like a clear penalty then pushed one of their players who went down holding his face (i'd hoped we'd left that sort of thing behind in the premiership!).

after that we had the better chances but couldn't score. they caught us in the last few mins with two goals. fans were great throughout the game .... although sadly i'm reading reports that our keeper has deleted his twitter account due to being abused by morons who are so called pompey fans. obviously thickies without the intelligence to realise that we are now in league 2 and have league 2 quality (e.g. not very good) players.

18,000 at Ashton Gate last night for the 1st round of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy (must be a record).

The 1st Bristol derby for several years and a cracking atmosphere. As a City fan I thought we played well in the 1st half and deserved to go in 1 up. 2nd half was much tighter, with Rovers closing down more quickly. As a result we played the long ball far too much. A lovely winner from a Bristol born player who has come through our academy.

So bragging rights for the red half of the City for months to come  :)

Game against ukraine was poor all round I thought. Ukraine had a lot of pace and skill out wide but nothing up top to finish chances, and while I like lambert, englands final ball was constantly poor.

Really do not rate milner as part of that front 3 at all. Yeah, he's steady and works back but England shouldn't set out with that negativity in mind. Should've let Townsend have a go at that full back and pinned their wingers back that way.

Well that was dissapointing, Arsenal create next to nothing yet we still conceded 3 goals, some really poor mistakes, can't complain though we weren't great apart from totally controlling the midfield in the second half.


Would be interesting to see Arsenals song book, atmosphere was shocking apart from the Stoke fans, it seems all Arsenal fans could do was boo one player when he had the ball for something that happened  3 years ago.


Anyway, onwards and upwards.

not a a great weekend for us either ....... home to fleetwood (big spenders in league 2 i believe!). a fairly even game but we lost 1-0. bit unfortunate for the goal as there was a foul on one of ours in the build up. however, we didn't really look like scoring wither which is a worry.

on the plus side .... almost 16000 in .... including 187 from fleetwood (actually 185 as 2 of them were "scummers" i know paying on the day to watch us lose!). i think we'll need to start winning at home though as the crowds might start to wane a little (well, down to the 10500 season ticket holders at least).

and to cap a bad weekend ... southampton beat liverpool!!

As a long time Gooner, I have to agree, Highbury had a great atmosphere but a lot of the games I have been to at the Emirates are attended by tourists, corporate visitors etc. I know this is true of other premiership clubs, but that and the design of the stadium don't help much.
Depending on where you end up getting a seat, there are pockets of noisier fans, but I have to agree we could do better!

think a lot of big clubs struggle for atmosphere these days for that reason. Look at united introducing the 'singing section'. Then again, maybe they'll need it given their recent performances!

Regardless of noise levels you must be pleased with Arsenal's recent performances? Good character shown in most games since that opening day defeat. I reckon for you lot though squad depth could be the problem, having said that though Gnabry looked good, always wanted the ball and willing to run at players.

Re noise levels, mediocre performances didn't help over the last couple of seasons, I saw better games at my local Luton Town ground! Ozil is a good playmaker and Ramsey is coming into his own I think. Gnabry is looking good, he was always impressive in the under 18 games. I think things are looking up for at long last (although I say that every season)!

A slight change of topic but as you mebntioned a couple of players, I wanted to ask what you think of Whilshire, for the life of me I can't figure out why hes so highly rated, all I've seen of him so far is that hes able to run into players and get free kicks, no killer pass, not great in the tackle and doesn't score many, is it purly because he's English and players for a top for club, or am I missing something?

I think he's probably been over-hyped for the reasons you stated but believe he has great potential. His injury problem last season really put back his progression and now he is fitter, his confidence could grow. He had a good debut season and was a great play maker. Unfortunately for him Ozil has the same qualities but is a more experienced and rounded player so unless he ups his game quickly I can see him on the bench more often, especially when Cazorla is match fit.
He's also probably playing in the wrong position at the moment but his ability to run at players and shake things up makes him essential to the England squad but probably not so much to us given the quality of the rest of the squad at the moment.

I have also posted this is the Books and 'What are you currently reading' thread on MC but it is also relevant to this one too:

Through my work I got chatting to a fellow who had also written a book, so he kindly agreed to swapping one of his for one of mine....

His book is The Theatre of Silence by Matthew Bazell and is a fantastic read for anyone old enough to remember terraced football and who agrees that the modern game is blighted by any number of things - not least the obscene amounts of money involved. It's a witty and engaging read and I felt compelled to read the whole thing over just a few days. It has a foreward by Rod Liddle and a chapter by John Lydon (who's autoboigraphy; No Blacks, No Dog's No Irish is also a great read).

I've written a review for Amazon (as follows) as a favour to Matt but it is genuinely a great book - although to be fair he is preaching to the coverted somewhat with me.

Do you despair at what has happened to your football team?
 
Do you think that anybody is worth £100,000 a week… a week?!?!
 
Do you think that footballing success is now measured more by profit rather than silverware (where else do you celebrate coming fourth… not even on primary school sports day my friend)
 
The Theatre of Silence will have you agreeing whole-heartedly with the impassioned plea from the author that the heart and soul has been bled dry by those who stand to view what was once the beating heart of the community, a brand and a business… you are no longer supporters, you are consumers!
 
It’s one thing to be asked to sit down by a steward, when you’re asked by fellow supporters that’s quite another… The only place you can watch football standing up now is in a pub or in the lower leagues… not that they are that much lower these days. League Two? It used to be Div 4 in old money… how’s that for progress?
 
I must confess to repeatedly interrupting my wife’s enjoyment of the evenings t.v. with many a ‘listen to this bit… it’s just so bl**dy true!’ I laughed out loud many times, not least regarding the ‘native greed’ of Jamie Brown the Spina Bifida sufferer and probably ruined another highly emotively charged bit during DIY SOS and yet I can’t recommend this book highly enough.
 
These days I rarely do the Prem unless I get a freebie or corporate jolly but now I’ve read this book I will turn down the next offer of a corporate freebie and state this book as the reason…
 
… It’s easy to shrug your shoulders and say ‘but what can I do about it?’ but as is so often in life (not just football) that’s exactly what they are (quite literally) banking on!
 
I am happy to watch lower league stuff, yes it may lack in foreign flair or guile occasionally but it’s worth it for that great hands-in-pockets roll of your body when you lean back and then shout out forward whatever song is doing the rounds… you simply can’t do that sitting down… I also love a witty terrace song (and a rude one or two to be fair) but times like at Aldershot when they played Morecombe a couple of years back in the pouring rain on a miserable Tuesday night when from somewhere on the terrace comes a chorus of ‘Bring Me Sunshine’… That my friend is true genius!
 
Buy this book but be warned you may just well upset your other-halves by laughing out loud during a particularly traumatic part in Downtown Abbey!

Great review by the way Suave.  Have to agree with the sentiments. I went to Chelsea week in week out from a very young age for about 20 years, through that era where we had great fans and a sh**e team. It's now the other way round.

I'll always be a Chelsea fan but I've got to say I loved the club then in a way that it's hard to do now. Success comes at a helluva price literally and metaphorically.

I'm planning a trip over Leyton Orient next week where I can take two little kids without a second mortgage.

Laird - Dutch fans have always been a bit like that. Strange as it's a country I've got a lot of time for with its "liberal" approach to certain things. Mind you Celtic fans are no angels and I've got an old scar to prove it!

Is this the same Glen Little who played for Burnley and Reading? If so, I remember him playing for Glentoran in the Irish League, scored goals like that on a regular basis

Yep, it's the very same Glen, DrG.  He's now playing for my local side - Wealdstone F.C. That came about after a conversation my mate (Glen's brother) was having in a pub. No large cuts for agents, I'd imagine.  ;)

Yes, he has had his moments:   http://youtu.be/T4GGWz7mmng

Excellent, that's worked out nicely for Wealdstone. Whilst he's obviously lost some pace, and looks a tad(!) heavier than in his halcyon days, the footballing brain and feet are still there. As you can imagine, he was the stand-out performer that season he played for Glentoran and, even taking into account the poor standards of the Irish League, you could see he was going to cut it at a much higher level. Shame injuries took their toll.

Enjoy him whilst he's there, Bill; I'd wager you'll see a few more 'specials'!!

I used to play with Gary for a couple of seasons when I was about 11/12. Outscored him both years too! haha

Played this weekend for the first time in a year, my ankle lasted for an hour and then I subbed myself off but pleased to get back out on the pitch! Shame we lost 2-0.

Far from be it me to comment too much on somebody elses football club but...

It's one thing to change the colour of a clubs shirt after the best part of 125 years, defiling both tradition and undermining your nickname as the blue-birds... after all red is a lucky colour in the far east and is a colour synonymous with Wales...

...it's possibly another to bin the manager that got you promoted to the 'Richest League in the World' (copyright, the F.A. putting aside perhaps other richer leagues from American Football to the IPL) and beating possible champions in waiting Man City, drawing with current Champions Man Utd, leading at the Chels before having your goal-keeper quite literally mugged by a Chelsea centre forward whose grasp of the finer points of the rules of association football probably misplaced along with his moral compass... and narrowly losing to The Arse in the last few minutes away from home...

... but when you start to tuck your jumper into your trousers... Vincent Tan you're a goon!

How bad? I think I shortened my life by about three years. Was watching in a sports bar surrounded by Mancs. When we scored in the last minute I thought it was all over. Roaring like a man possessed. Felt like a right nob when they scored a minute later. Horrible pennas, was having flashbacks to the Charlton playoff final but Mannone was immense in goal. Absolutely mental night and I'm still buzzing this morning. Barely slept. Haway The Lads!

Poor pen, but at least he can play football! Phil Jones is nearly as overrated as Wayne Rooney. Both would've been ideal in the 80s, but aren't modern footballers. State of Rooney, he's 28 and looks 48. £250k a week we pay him to kick up a fuss every couple of years and demand more money, people forget how sh*t he was prior to getting that new contract. Nani carried us that season. Rooney is an absolute mercenary, can't wait to see the back of him.

As a neutral though, was glad a bit of excitement was had. Ki looks like a real player in midfield and has the last few times I've watched him. Don Vito looked solid in goal too.

Curious to see how mata will do at united, he's a fantastic player... not sure if its what united really need but its a statement. Hope moyes can get him playing with the freedom he was afforded at chelsea over the last couple of seasons

I don't think he's been great this season, people get blinded by his supposed "work rate" - the last place I want to see my no10 is defending in our own corner, you don't see the worlds best forwards tracking back like that - they conserve their energy for counter attacks - Rooney is so brain dead that he plays like a kid in a playground, chasing the ball like a headless chicken - usually resulting in a booking - 7 of which he has this season. Mata will be a great signing, finally time to switch to the 4-2-3-1 inverted wingers style which many of europes great clubs have already adapted to 3 or 4 years ago. Sir Alex was certainly slow on the uptake there.

While I do agree, Rooney tracking back does help when Evra does sweet FA on defence. Not ideal, I know. Another 3-4 transfers and we should be on track.

I agree Evra has been poor for a while now, mainly due to having nobody to challenge his place! A new LB, CB & CM and I'd be relatively happy with the squad - not that bringing that many players in will be easy, but getting rid of Fabio, Buttner, Young, Valencia, Rio, Evra... would help.

True, new players are needed. However, in the meantime, try a new strategy. Cross into the box appears useless.

That should've changed years ago, 4-4-2 is SO outdated, need 3 roaming players behind a forward, not wide players hugging the touchline. That's 90s football...

More players like mop head? How did that work out?

And would that be the dead wood that won the league nine months ago?

One of the funniest things this season is whenever united have under achieved on TV the camera zooms in on Moyes with his sour, miserable trouty face like a slapped arse, then scans over to Fergy looking down from on high, still hanging around the club like a bad smell. Cracks me up every time.

Noticed that as well. To be fair, mop head is not a bad footballer, not much time on the pitch this season. Does not play our style football, however.

"mop head" was a panic buy due to 'fans' pressure. Ed Woodward as much to blame for not acting in the traditional United way - but again left in the lurch a bit due to David Gill leaving.

We only won the league last season as RvP was fit all year and everything he hit went in. Also we still had Scholes to dictate certain games tempo. New methods always take a while to get used to - the only thing that concerns me is we have a fair few English players now, and most English players play in an English way - not technically gifted. The best teams in the league are largely made up of foreign players - no surprise.

As a Leeds fan, this goes against the grain, but I have a degree of sympathy for Moyes. I think he was sold a pup by old bacon face! Ferguson knew that team need gutting (I'd personally only keep RvP, the granny shagger, Mata, Carrick and the keeper in the current first team), and he had neither the desire nor, I suspect, the funds to rebuild a team. The much-vaunted youth system appears to have dried up and they cannot compete with the mega-rich. People say 'oh, but look how long Ferguson got to stamp his mark', but that was a different era. Clubs demand instant success these days, and a couple of seasons outside the CL could leave Utd as also-rans for seasons to come. Oh dear!  ;)

P.S before anyone has a pop, I know just how sh*te Leeds are. Watching our most hated rivals from across the Pennines struggling is one of the few crumbs of comfort we have!!

A lot of truth in that mate! Roy Keane has always said SAF was only out for himself, and this time I think he's spot on. Imagine Pep would've come in, won everything for a few years - it would overshadow what SAF achieved? Weird scenario but wouldn't surprise me...

I'll happily give Moyes time, he now has a full summer to reshape and clearout as he sees fit - the only positive from this current slump is a lot of the glory hunters are going away! Granted I've been spoilt in my 27years alive but at the end of the day you just have to support your club regardless, sounds cliche but it really is like a religion?

Keane seems to have something of an axe to grind, but I too think he's been on the money with a lot of what he has said about Utd, and Ferguson in particular. I've been told by a few fans that the idea that Moyes was hand-picked is nonsense; Ancellotti was the first choice, only when he turned it down did they turn to Moyes.

Moyes deserves time, and I think he'll get it. However, a second season without CL qualification (you're not going to do it this time, imo) might be too much for the board, and especially the Glazers (the real malaise at Utd) to take. And you're right; irrespective of how good or bad your team is, when it's in the blood, you can't let go. I should know, I've been a Leeds fan for 40 long, LONG years!!  ;)

Excellent points gents. Agree, my concern is who Moyes buys. Happy to give him time in but would like to see a change in strategy from him. Same each week is not working. Several of the lads out on loan should have a chance, see how they play. They are doing quite well it seems.

I expect M.Keane, Powell & Lingard to be a big part of pre-season and probably blooded next season. This year they needed loans to get them used to a decent level of mens football - all have played in good footballing sides on loan too so hopefully they'll make it. James Wilson in the u18s is another who could be brought in, cracking player - maybe a loan next season would do him good. Team shape does definitely need to change, 4-4-2 is so 90's, we need to be playing 4-2-3-1 with inverted wingers/roaming players as the '3'.

Anyway, I'm rambling... :)

The problem now unfortunately isn't one of football but the share price. I understand from the radio a few days ago that their share value in the US has dropped alarmingly and the "men at the top" are worried.

If they fail to turn the Greeks over at Old Trafford I can see him getting the push sooner rather than later, although personally he should get at least 3 seasons at the helm.

Yes mate for my sins. It's my home town club, and never followed anyone else. Saw my first match stood on an old stool which my old man carried in for me when I was 6 or 7. Season ticket holder since 16 and been all over the country supporting them. Not too many highs, but I did catch the 3 seasons in the old first division, along with being at Anfield when we knocked Liverpool out of the FA cup 20 years ago. Lots of lows, including the last couple of seasons, but I always tell myself the pain makes the joy greater still.

Yes I did see the story about the fan with terminal cancer. Very moving and seemed to help inspire the team to a much needed 3 points.

Very unfortunate and it seems they gave a good account of themselves last night although they were beat 2-0.
Laird....I seem to remember a "conversation" we had about Scotty Arfield (me being a Hudds Town fan).....it looks like he has found his mojo at Burnley and having a very good season.

Amen to that brother. I'll admit my reasons aren't perhaps the same as Steve's and date back to the late 70's and 80's which were I guess my formative years for following football. At that time Liverpool would win everything. The League, the domestic cups and European ones too, and I guess that's what put me off them...they just won everything! Oh, that and the fact the white collars on their jerseys went pink after a while  ;D

I guess the same probably applies to guys in their late 20's early 30's with Man Utd, having dominated (domestically at least) the last 20 odd years.

As a supporter of a Div 1 side I don't really have any preference for who wins the Premiership, although I do have a soft spot for Arsenal & Man City, mainly due to the sides they had in the early 70's...as I said the early years can help to form your likes and dislikes.

With Arsenal self destructing over the last month I'd like to see Man City pick it up again.

I'll buck the trend here and state that I think Liverpool would be worthy winners. Steven Gerard is one of, if not the, finest players of his generation (sorry, SteveP!) and to retire without a league winners medal seems something of a travesty. They also have the best player in the world right now in Suarez and are very easy on the eye. Added bonus is that Rodgers is from wee Norn Iron!

Having said that, I could really give a sh*te. As a Leeds fan, I have far more pressing concerns such as will my club continue to exist given the shambolic way it's currently being run. Admin and automatic relegation are a real worry  :(

I like Rodgers too, and I like the way Liverpool play - it's just the Gerrard love-in I can't deal with, he seems to be immune from criticism which does my head in!

Can't agree, guys. Gerrard's best days are past him, undoubtedly, but he carried a poor Liverpool side for 10 years almost single-handedly and was instrumental in them winning an FA Cup and a Champion's League in that period. If he has a flaw, it's that he was too loyal to LFC; had he went elsewhere, he'd have won a lot more, and there isn't a club in the country that wouldn't have wanted him in their side at his peak (and that includes Utd, despite Ferguson's denials in his book!)

Smicer & Alonso changed the CL final in my eyes - no surprise that Liverpool weren't as good when Alonso left, he made Gerrard look good. And "too loyal" in my book means you don't hand in a transfer request. He's been heralded as "world class" over the years but that tag is banded around far too easily in my eyes - he's lightyears away from what Zidane et al were. THAT is "world class". Same goes for Rooney, he's just the same - a typical media/Ingurland fan lovechild because he grafts. Don't get me wrong Gerrard is a good player, but not one I rate that highly.

I'd also say that 'too loyal' could be seen as prefering to stay a big fish in a small pond (although I suppose you can't say LFC were a small pond but have been fairly unsuccessful lately). When Chelsea were sniffing around a few years ago he decided to stay at Liverpool. To me that looked like he would prefer to stay where he was and where he is the adored player who can do no wrong, rather than move to a club where he would have to justify a massive fee and be playing with a better quality of player, where the supporters would start getting on your back if you didn't cut it.

Stevie G was not allowed to leave Liverpool..he sold his soul to the Mersey Mafia who told him that 'you are staying put soft lad' when he was on the verge of signing for Chelsea.

Steve G has had a lot of good moments for Liverpool but I groan when playing for England he will always try the 50 yard diagonal ball with a success rate of about 8%. In terms of long range passing he is no Glen Hoddle.
Title: Re: The official Modculture football thread
Post by: StevePWilliams on April 03, 2014, 12:57:48 PM
I agree there's not been a world-class English player for years. Gone are the days of Charlton/Hoddle/McManaman/Gazza types - proper world beaters on their day.

Scholes closest to it in modern times, but stuck out on the left of midfield due to a certain someone being "automatic" first choice...! Arguably Owen at his peak was up there too, and Rio.

Baffles me that people say passing is one of Gerrards strengths, I'd love to know his career pass success rate. He'll be more suited to this "sitting" role once he can get used to the positioning, he still chases the ball too much, we've had so many headless chickens in this country though, still cringe when you think Scott Parker used to start CM for England and Carrick couldn't get a game? No wonder England are years behind technically/tactically. Kick & run 80s mentality, quick wingers and "lionheart" spirit. Actually ability wouldn't go amiss.
Title: Re: The official Modculture football thread
Post by: MWC on April 03, 2014, 01:25:34 PM
Gerrard and Scholes were world class at their peaks. I'm a Liverpool fan myself and have been going to Anfield since I was 5. I can't see how Gerrard hasn't been world class! He's by far the best Liverpool player I have seen play, and the majority rate him as the 2nd best LFC player ever behind Dalglish. Look at the teams Dalglish was in he was surrounded by quality, you can't say the same about Gerrard. Admittedly his England form has not been brilliant but as you say they don't really set up to get the best out of Gerrard. You can say that about a few players with England.

Also you talk about players making Gerrard look good but how many players has Gerrard made look good? Look at Torres now, he's way off the form he was in at Liverpool. IMO the majority of goals scored by Torres had a lot to do with Gerrard. I can only go off what I have seen but he was THE major influence in us winning in Istanbul and dominating Milan in the final in 2007. As for that FA cup final he undoubtedly won that on his own, albeit against West Ham. I've had the pleasure to see the majority of world class players at their peak and I can honestly say Gerrard has at least matched them.

This is what Zidane had to say about Gerrard:
http://www.theguardian.com/football/2009/mar/13/zinedine-zidane-steven-gerrard-liverpool

As for the title, this is actually the closest we have been to winning it since I can remember. That probably tells you a lot... I can only remember a couple of times where we've been within touching distance at this stage of the season, 6 more wins will do me...
Title: Re: The official Modculture football thread
Post by: DrGonzo2411 on April 03, 2014, 02:05:49 PM
I agree about Scholes, smashing wee player (though every tackle he made was a free-kick!) and maybe Owen for a couple of years. Ferdinand, no way!!  A good player in space but was always exposed when he came up against genuine world class players, both for Utd and England. Thought he was the new Bobby Moore, he was more like the new Bobby Ball!!  ;)

The home nations, and England in particular (by virtue of being the only one to regularly qualify for competitions) are light years behind the best on the world stage. You can almost see the fear in all but a couple of players eyes when they get the ball, 'F*ck, get rid as quick as possible'. I don't know whether it's mentality, coaching, the influx of foreign players or a combination of these factors but even the lesser lights of the European nations are streets ahead of us in technical ability. And I'm not sure what the answer is in terms of trying to catch up. Or if it's even possible to??
Title: Re: The official Modculture football thread
Post by: StevePWilliams on April 03, 2014, 02:51:12 PM
Bang on the head with the "get rid of it" mentality. A few factors come into play, firstly 'keepers aren't taught to play football so they hit everything long, other nations use their GK as a "player", which he should be. Too many lunging/desperate tackles, too much ball watching in terms of defending - attacking wise as a nation we pick pace over skill/technical ability. Players like Lennon, Townsend, Zaha, Redmond etc are 10 a penny but each time one breaks through they're lauded as "great players", but they only succeed at the start 'cos they're relatively unknown. As soon as clever defenders work them out, that's it. To get to that next stage you need to develop your game but that doesn't happen in this country, players are given too much money/fame too soon so they think they've made it. Look at the likes of Ronaldo & Bale, once you add a different dimension to your game you succeed. They both now dribble past players both ways which makes them unpredictable and hard to defend against. Anyway, I'm just off to my interview to succeed Roy Hodgson after the World Cup....haha, sorry I'm rambling but it frustrates me.

its a problem at grassroots and junior level. kids up until recently were playing competitive 11 v 11 at u10 level, on proper sized pitches, absolutely ludicrous. Emphasis on winning in kids football, so the biggest, physical kids get more playing time, and kids dont get a chance to play without pressure, and thus they dont learn to take care of the ball. Europe and Spain in particular are lightyears ahead of england in coaching kids because they dont worry about children winning, they are taught to enjoy playing, take risks without getting an earful. By they time they step-up to proper scale football, they want the ball, are confident on it, and the winning mentality comes from playing, not 'win for wins sake'. That's why even poor spainish sides still play football. Luckily England have finally bucked there ideas up and kids under a certain age cant play on full size pitches, and scores arent published online or in the paper before a certain age either. The focus will hopefully be on developing players now, rather than grinding out results anyway possible.

Amazing how many years it's taken for England to recognise it though.

They were nowhere near as good as me technically but they were strong, powerful and quick so they got the desired results which kept the Head of Youth Development in a job. And that was about 15 years ago.

Many matches have become organised bullying where the biggest kids steamroll everyone else, no wonder kids have enough of it and don't keep on playing as they get older. I refereed a junior (U15) match a couple of weeks back, one team was winning 10-1 (and you can guess which team was giving backchat if they did not get a decision their way) with about 5 minutes to go when I waived play on when their striker was challenging the centre back for the ball and despite getting his shirt tugged about 25 yards from goal he maintained control of the ball shrugged the defender away and got a shot away from about 15 yards out. His shot went wide and he immediately turned around and swung a wild kick at the defender knocking him over. I called him over and told him that kicking out deliberately was not on and  I was going to get his coach to substitute him and he would not be able to play the last few minutes. He then told me I could F off so I officially dismissed him and he stormed off the pitch. When I restarted the game with a goal kick someone on the touchline started shouting at me for not awarding the dismissed player a penalty. After the game the individual on the touchline started berating me again and I said I was not going to debate the decision with a spectator. He then told me he was one of the team coaches. I was saddened that winning 10-1 is was not enough for the lad and he thought it was ok to kick an opponent and abuse the ref and then the icing on the cake the coach condones his actions and is aggrieved that no penalty is awarded. Who in their right minds wants to put up with that week in week out.

Amazing how many years it's taken for England to recognise it though. I was released from PL club academies because I was "too small", huge kids twice my size in my age group would be signed on, some from abroad too. They were nowhere near as good as me technically but they were strong, powerful and quick so they got the desired results which kept the Head of Youth Development in a job. And that was about 15 years ago.

Size doesn't seem to have hindered Messi so far eh?


Ye should've gone oan the growth hormones like he did.

I'm hoping Liverpool win the perm league …. mainly due to the fact that we stand to receive £1m as part of the deal that took Johnson to Anfield apparently (how far we have fallen!) …… and we need it. Also, it would make a nice change from recent years. And I like the football they are playing …. even Suarez has won me over.

As for Pompey, things have picked up since sacking Barker as manager. Two wins in two since Andy Awford (a pompey favourite as  player)  ….. crowd are behind him too!!

Kelly probably not mobile enough or good enough going forward for Rodgers' liking - Johnson is the sort of player that could be converted to a Lahm-style holding midfield player, not bad on the ball and two footed. But his awareness when he's playing at the back is awful, it was acceptable when he was 19 at West Ham as he had time to learn, but he's still doing it at 29!

Good point, but that rigid adherence to all-out attacking football has cost them the title. The very best sides mix a hard and disciplined back three/four with the sexy free flowing footy from the front 6 or 7. Spot on re Johnson; good player going forward but a liability at the back. The amount of times he loses his man is ridiculous

Possibly not, but there's a balance and I think they've tipped the scales in the wrong way slightly. A 6-3 win might be more exciting to watch but a 3-0 is a better result.

You're right, but that should come with time. Rodgers is a very young manager who is still learning and the squad is still very inexperienced.

Even being in with a shout of the title this late on in the season is unbelievable when you look at what other sides like Chelsea and City have had to spend on managers and players. I think this summer and next season will be interesting. Rodgers needs to bring in some decent signings and probably a decent defensive coach I think...

Maybe not. Don't get me wrong, they've been a joy to watch for the bulk of this season and I would have quite liked to have seen them win it. But defensive frailty and, I think, a lack of run-in experience looks to have cost them

I'm sure he will learn - he's got the attacking methods down to a tee so can probably bring someone in defensively to aid him like you say.

We're definitely heading in the right direction Steve after 3 or 4 dismal seasons since we lost to Hull in the play off final which would have seen us in the Prem, the first time since 1976, when our first game was away at Arsenal and we won 1 nil against a quality Gunners side. I remember it well as I went to the game with my dad.

Been a City fan ever since I can remember and apart from the spell in the old Div 1 back in the late 70's we've not had much to shout about, which is a shame really as it could and should be a great club. Odd trip to Wembley for the Freight Rover/Leyland Daf final, promotion to the Championship a couple of times, but that's about it.

Had a season ticket since I was 16 but jacked it in 3 years ago after Gary Johnson started to lose the plot, and not been to too many games since. Used to go home and away and had some great laughs (not to mention a few rucks) when I was young and daft...weren't we all.

I think it was the 89/90 season and I didn't miss a single match all season...away to Millwall on a Tuesday night was fun, especially after we'd won 2-0...getting back to the car still sends shivers down my spine to this day. Thing is supporting them in the 80's & 90's the grounds I got to see were all lower league sides (a lot of them are conference or below now) but I loved it all the same, and I thing since then that little bit of edge has gone out of it, which always added to the excitement. Got a right kicking away of Hartlepool one Saturday afternoon. Can you believe it! Hartlepool of all places. Made walking around Newcastle in the evening where we were staying a little difficult to say the least.

Next season I should be going down a little more often I hope. Still love them as I always will, and it helps to blow of a bit of steam after a week at work. Come on you Reds!!

Yeah Gary Johnson to me has always been a bit of a Harry Redknapp of the lower leagues - "chummy" when it suits him, and then a bit of a prat when it's not going too well! Very old school and I think "old school" techniques are often found out once they get to a certain age.

Hartlepool surprises me! haha, Millwall doesn't of course! I don't get to go as much as I'd like to either - mainly due to costs. Plus I can't stand Old Trafford these days, it's just a circus/tourist attraction for idiots with their brand new shirt/jester hat/plastic flags! More focused on taking photos during the game instead of singing/watching the game. Most threatened I've felt was Cardiff away, somehow managed to get to the front of our lot with my mate and lead all the away end into the stadium? Was a surreal feeling! Especially since I'm 5ft10 and think as a rake!

Shame to see a lot of those big clubs drop out of the football leagues, Barnet/Luton etc - was quite strange seeing Luton fans walking around in Braintree a few months back, mental thinking I played a couple of games for Braintree's 1st team and now they're playing Luton?!

Exactly - City are the lesser of the 3 evils at the top! ;)

van Gaal would be exactly what we need. Doesn't take any crap, has a great philosophy and understanding of the game - plus if he has someone like Giggs working alongside him, ideal way to learn the ropes. As Moyes learnt, United job isn't just being manager it's manipulating the media etc also - van Gaal is a master at that. Giggs looks like a rabbit in headlights at the moment but he'll learn. If it is van Gaal, I've got no worries for next season. Should mean more game time for Kagawa, and hopefully less for Rooney, unless he's converted to a CM (which he would already be if he wasn't so arrogant!) - in an ideal world for me, Rooney would be sold but I can't see the board approving that as he's a massive PR vehicle for the club.

Agree though van Gaal will wear thin within two seasons, as he does. Giggs isn't ready, one day he may be. If it is van Gaal I do hope he has proper transfers in mind for midfield and defence, no more strikers or attacking midfielders please.

Exactly 2 years would be ideal - bed Giggs in alongside him and then natural progression for him to step up. Yeah no strikers needed, just another CM plus a CB & LB. Plus lots of dead wood to get rid of! Then just promote 2 or 3 from  Wilson, Lawrence, Lingard, M.Keane, Ekangamene & R.James.

Was he definitely having a go on Moyes' daughter? I thought there was a bit of the urban myth about that one but will bow to your greater knowledge!

Luke Shaw and possibly Adam Lallana (I know hes another CM!) would be worth a punt IMO

Normally keep out of this football thread but can't pass up the opportunity to say witnessing Bobby Zamora's 89 minute 50 second goal at Wembley on Saturday was the greatest experience of my Queen's Park Rangers supporting days. It wasn't the promotion, it was just winning a final at Wembley (albeit a play-off final).

Been a season ticket holder for roughly 32 years. That spilt second made every cack moment worthwhile. Still buzzing from it.

Now I think he's tried to play up to that persona so much that it's made him quite vulgar - also you can't give it the "I'm a geezer, one of the lads" attitude and then moan when the Spurs players throw water over you in celebration!

Missed this and echo those words exactly. What an amazing feeling and an amazing day. From central London beers prior to the game, the build up, the stadium full (no prawn sandwich brigade missing the first 15 mins of each half) of passionate fans, completely half and half. The qpr fans with the flags (good gesture qpr) snatching victory from the jaws of defeat and going mental when 'oh bobby Zamora' scored. Unbelievable. Singing qpr songs all the way along Wembley way, at the station, at baker st and every time you saw another qpr fan well into the night. My 4th trip to see QPR at Wembley the best the draw in 82! Coming back from Cardiff after they beat us in the last play off was a real low, this was a high. Let's hope we don't repeat the same mistakes as two years ago. Unfortunately you feel disaster is lurking just round the corner when you are a qpr fan!

In fact two weeks later I am stil buzzing!  ;D

I fancy Spain to win it and be the first non South American side to win a World Cup in South America.

England will go through with Uruguay and get knocked out in the quarters. That's if he plays who he should be playing and not bottle it, which is very unlike Hodgson.

I'm going for Aguero as top scorer...

Hard to look past Brazil due to climate/fans, but there's 5 or so that could win it - GER/FRA/SPA/BRA/ARG being the obvious ones.

Think France will do well, solid in all areas. Belgium have a fantastic team, but their tournament inexperience will count against them I think, would love to see them do well though - some cracking players.

Top scorer I'll say Higuain.

Oddly I'm listening to the test match on Radio 4 (living dangerously I know) but in the lunch break they were talking about John Arlott, probably the greatest sports commentator ever. Perhaps the ITV "crew" could listen to this guy talk (more importantly the art of not talking) and they may learn something.

They played this clip which made me laugh out loud. Genius :

Croatia wuz robbed. Looking forward to Spain v Holland tonight. hope the dutch decide to play football this time.if they do I think they'll win.

Keep an eye out for Jordy Clasie - absolute player. If he plays well, Holland play well - dictates the tempo and has unreal fitness levels, constantly pressing.

On the Man. United radar as well.

The entire ITV "team" should be sacked, they're so abysmal. A drain Chiles (see what I did there) is a joke. Was ok on the One Show with Lampard's bint, but then got sacked from Daybreak as no one could understand a word he said, but then lands a cushy number as the frontman for all of ITV's live football matches. And as for Hoddle, lord give me strength  >:(

Agree, Steve! The commentary duo of Tyldesley and Townsend are excrutiating, and as for the studio team???? All they offer is a reason to go for a p*ss and a fag! And then Chiles tries to tell us that the stoning of the studio windows was part of the political unrest. Was it f**k!!

Steve, if you ever get the chance to see him being interviewed by Mike Brearley ,its highly recommended.
It was originally a series on the early days of Channel 4 but was repeated on C4 last year.

LVG loves RVP, he'll be the main man at united... and lets face it, Rooney has work rate but for a number 9 you can't get much better than RVP when he's fit.

RVP recently said he wants to play until he's "40 or maybe 42"... think thats ambitious for a bloke made of glass.

Okay cards oan the table time.

Whit's yir world cup predictions?

Ah reckon Argentina will win it.

Belgium will dae best oot the teams fae europe.

Joe Hart will be sidelined when his dandruff comes back wi' a vengeance.

I fancy Spain to win it and be the first non South American side to win a World Cup in South America.

England will go through with Uruguay and get knocked out in the quarters. That's if he plays who he should be playing and not bottle it, which is very unlike Hodgson.

I'm going for Aguero as top scorer...

Well this was my prediction... You might as well just ignore anything I say from now on  :-X

The system didn't suit any of the players. Why play Gerrard in a two man midfield? He can't cover ground like he used to, hence Rodgers playing him defensive midfield.

New young manager with a clear philosophy in the mould of Rodgers/Martinez is what's needed.

It was Sturridge who created the opening for Johnson to cross for Rooney. A great wee spin and took 2 men out. He also scored your other goal.
England were naive against the Italians. When they equalised they should have consolidated rather than rampage up the park. You don't do that against an experienced Italian team who are used to hitting on the break. Hodgeson should have been more clued up as he used To manage Inter. This was England's most important game and the objective should have been not to lose. They could've then built on that and still been there. The Uruguay game wouldn't have been so pressurised.
For what it's worth I'm Scottish but was shouting for England. Dunno who to support now....maybe Chile.

True, but he also gave the ball away cheaply on several occasions, not that he was the only one, and that includes breaking down what was developing into a promising build-up by shooting miles over the bar from about 35 yards. Having said that, it's still good they're getting the experience.
I would like to think something will now be done about the whole set-up of football and coaching in this country but just like 2010, as soon ad it's finished people will forget about it and start banging the Premier League drum again and all thr nonsense that goes with it.
Title: Re: The official Modculture football thread
Post by: Woody 64 on June 21, 2014, 06:46:46 AM
Can't believe Hodgeson keeps his job. Football is changing and He is old school. In both games after going behind his subs were just out of panic and showed no technical nous. If the young guns are the future then he is not the man to get the best out of them.

If he stays he has to have the bottle to make big decisions. No more Gerrard, Lampard etc. Have more of a plan B besides chucking Lambert on for 5 minutes. To be honest, I think Hoddle has been speaking a lot of sense as a pundit and he has done well with youngsters at the academy he was running in Spain. Maybe time for him to have another go.

Why is Germany white, Australia yellow, etc etc? They chose a prettier blue to pair with red and white. Modernize it a bit, we're mods aren't we?

I was on holiday in France during the first 2 weeks of the World Cup in '98. Watched quite a few matches in a bar in Bordeaux. My good lady really liked the French top of that time, so much so she bought one from a sports shop at half time during one of the France matches. The locals watching the game in the bar liked it so much we didn't have to buy any more drinks during the remainder of the match. Suffice to say a great evening.

Would love Lennon to come to us but think that is a tad unrealistic. We need someone who will give the players a kick up the arse.....too many have been on automatic pilot for too long.

Another reason tae make me feel auld.

Apparently the Scepovic fella Celtic huv signed (after a lengthy drawn oot process) is the son ay the guy wha' scored the crucial 4th goal fur Partizan Belgrade when we beat them 5-4 in 1989.  (4th goal meant they went thru oan away goals).

Ah'd had a job interview in Lahndahn that mornin' n' belted back up the road tae get tae the match.  Frantic game wi' a disappointin' sting in the tail.  Celtic oot ay europe.

Next mornin' ah wis cheered up a bit when ah took a phone call tae say ah'd goat the job n' so ah had tae start makin' plans tae move "dahn sarf".

Mixed feelings for Welbeck leaving but a striker who doesn't finish isn't worth much.

We got Falcao, Di Maria, Blind, etc. We needed a CM and two CBs but that don't happen.

Think welbeck is a decent signing for arsenal, his movement is good, should make space for players like alexis, walcott, ramsey etc

Excited to see Falcao on MOTD but if i was a Man Utd fan i'd be concerned the team has been strengthened in its already strongest areas.

My team, Forest, we did our business all before the deadline. Please with new signings, especially Asombalonga, Fryatt and Antonio all scoring goals already.

Surely Utd buying Falcao and Di Maria is a bit like given a heart attack victim breast augmentation - looks good but probably focussing on the wrong area?

Don't get a break down in League 1

Managed to get down to watch my local team climb to the dizzy heights of 2nd in the league. First time I've seen them this season and was quietly impressed. Ball on the deck, nice crisp passing and plenty of off the ball running which we've sadly lacked for the last couple of years. Too early to say if we'll get automatic promotion but the play-offs should be within our grasp at least.

A lovely sunny day and a few beers too. The ground is being re-developed and the old "East End" where all the nutters used to stand (including me in the mid 70') has been demolished to make way for a new stand. Seemed odd kicking towards nothing more that a few hoardings and a buildings site  :D

In the 80's at Boothferry Park, they sold part of the land that the north stand was on so a Grandways could be built on the back of it. This ended up being a Netto which just about sums up Hull City during those years.

Haha, Johnny or Billy would have let him get up and then took him out properly all over again. Man's game back then, and Revie's side could play 'the game' better than most. Though I'd argue they warranted the 'dirty' tag no more than the rest

Yes I would agree with that. I saw my team play Leeds in Feb 1974 at Elland Road in the FA Cup.  I was only 9 but my dad took me for my Birthday. A great atmosphere made even better as we won 1 - nil. I was a little disappointed as Leeds were my "other" team back then and avidly collected all of the team cards that used to come with a stick of bubble gum back then.

Bristol City, right? Vague recollection of that, but I would only have been 5 at the time

I do remember those cards, as my mum worked in a newsagents and me and my brother used to get a pack every Friday. The bubblegum was rank, and I suspect was the basis for the yet-to-be-invented superglue!

Post by: Red Steve on December 04, 2014, 04:24:19 PM
Yes Doc. I saw the home game at Ashton Gate. Bremner got the Leeds goal in front of a packed house. We won the replay. I recall having to get up early as there were power cuts going on back then, and got dressed by candlelight in the front room. Your right about the gum. Flat pink stuff that was really hard and tasted awful. Spent all my dinner money for several months on the damn things until I got the set. Alan Clarke was the last one I needed and I think I traded half the Arsenal side to get him.

I think Leeds went on to win the Div One title that year so for us they were a major scalp.

The Mighty Red Army keeps rolling along  :) Would be nice to keep the top spot until the end of the year, but I think we need to be more clinical in front of goal as we missed a hat full of chances on Saturday, albeit Crawley came with a game plan and stuck to it really well.

Decided to treat myself to a VIP ticket which included a ground tour and lunch etc. Well worth £60 given a standard ticket is around £25-£28

The ground is being redeveloped with 2 more stands to come down over the next couple of years, but the results will be well worth it.

I have to assume other Bosses of spfl teams have made it clear that Ashley's propping up of the new club creates an unfair playing field.

 If the other clubs are struggling cos they're playing within their reasonable budget why should Scottish football rules be bent (again!) to accommodate the rangers in their insane march back to their "proper place" ahead of Shellic?

 Will  boards just quietly accept yet another fudge (and relegation via a playoff match against illegally subsidised sevco) in order to let ra peepul be happy?

 I, have seen trouble at t'Big Hoose but heard no complaints that they're still operating on borrowed money, with no way of paying it back and ALL assets stripped. Yet they still pay huge wages so their players (and even HUGER wages for a manager on gardening leave) can try to win another diddy league. How is that acceptable?

Coming from Norn Iron, I get the whole Celtic/Rangers rivalry and hatred of each other. The second question you got asked growing up here was 'Rangers or Celtic?' (always f**ked them up when I said Stenhousemuir!!). However, doesn't Celtic, and Scottish football in general, need a strong, competitive Rangers? As things stand, the SPL is a walk in the park for Celtic season after season. As a result, you're not challenged or stretched and then when you play in Europe, the wheels come off. I can't see that changing for as long as the rest of the SPL are unable to mount any sort of serious challenge. The fact of the matter is that only a financially stable Rangers have the infrastructure, support etc to do that. Glory in the enemy's misfortune, certainly, but be careful what you wish for.

P.S for clarity, I support neither. Have enough problems being a Leeds fan!!  ;)

For clarity , the club , formally known as rangers , no longer exists . They are now , effectively Newco or Sevco. Now for historical reasons the club would still like to be known as rangers but for financial reasons i.e so they are not liable for any of the debt , the club wish to known as  a new venture.
Are they needed in the top league in Scotland ? I'm sure many a owner of a Scottish Club would tell you that they miss the revenue their fans used to bring but beyond that no , although , I'm sure most Shellic fans would have them back in a heartbeat , just for the OF excitement. .
I'd also say that Hearts and even Hibs are probably missed , financially , from the top league as much as Sevco.

I don't think Shellic are going to see a competitive Sevco in the top league anytime soon . They are still beleaguered by financial problems with some people running the club that fans are not happy with as they think they are dubious. They are now struggling in the league they are in , after getting rid of the manager ,with a succession of defeats , including their biggest one in 14 years , at the weekend .

Maybe Mick Ashley wants to buy it but he might have to wait until the club folds again , before he can do so, ,

PS for clarity , I support neither . Even tho' I was regularly asked the same question as you , I'm not from N I , either. . ;)

In ma lifetime Scottish fitba wis actually at it's maist competitive in the early 80s when Celtic, Aberdeen & Dundee Utd aw competed fur n' won the league title.  The "New Firm" (Aberdeen & Dundee Utd) wur also forces tae be reckoned wi' in Europe at that time.

Coincidentally Rangers (under John Greig) wur complete garbage throughout that era n'aw.

The fact that Celtic dinnae huv league matches against whitever team play at Ibrox has adversely affected the telly revenue money, but apart fae that ah dinnae miss them at aw.

Simon, Laird, thank you for the informed replies. My knowledge of the whole set up is fairly thin and mine was merely an observation from someone on the outside looking in. I still reckon Celtic will continue to struggle/fail to qualify in Europe whilst their league is a stroll. No matter who it is, they need a strong rival to push them domestically. No coincidence that the usual suspects in the CL come from leagues which are genuinely competitive.

We (Celtic) did qualify for last 16 of Champs League 2 years ago beating the mighty Barca at paradise on the way. In saying that we are poorer now in Europe but still qualified for knockout stage of Europa. We are only 2 points ahead of Dons and 4 of Utd. We are getting pushed but thats probably down to our downsizing in part and also better organised opposition to a lesser extent.

The last time we were there was for the play-off final v Hull and we blew it on the day, which was a shame as we'd played really well all season, but did fade a little towards the end, and dropped out of the automatic promotion spots which we'd occupied most of the season.

This is just the "Mickey Mouse" cup but a day out at Wembley is always enjoyable. We've been in the final of the same competition three times before. In '86 when we beat Bolton 3-0 and then the following year when we lost on penalties to Mansfield Town. In 2000 we lost again to Stoke 2-1 which I believe was the last game played at the old stadium. I think it was named the Freight Rover Cup and then the Auto Windscreens Shield. It now carries the catchy title of Johnstone's Paint Trophy  :)

This season is shaping up nicely. 2nd in the League and still in the FA Cup too. If we beat Doncaster in the replay we'll be entertaining either West Ham or Everton in the next round. Good times back at Ashton Gate at last.

Don't worry. I had to put up with 3 years of the same that followed. City offered a three year season ticket deal when we got to the play-offs. Thinking we'd be in the Premiership and it would save a shed load of cash I duly handed over my credit card. One of the worse decisions I made.

I must admit I was keeping an eye out for you on the box - did you keep the scarf?

Dennis wises hair on Santana sports when he was a pundit the other day.
Mod or not. Discuss.

Surely you mean 'mad or not'?? Looks like he's gone to a fancy dress party as a certain Austrian fascist and his moustache has fallen off. It HAS to be a wig, or a really bad transplant. Another example of why he is the most inappropriately named man in football!  :o

Off to Ashton Gate to see if we can continue the success of the lower league clubs yesterday by turning over the Irons. Got £25 on us to win which I don't normally do, but it's the cup so had to be done. Hopefully it should be a good open game on a good playing surface. I'm predicting a 2-1 win for the Reds.

It is about 35yrs since I saw BCFC playing , they were pretty good then. .

I gave the scarf away to a chap sitting next to me who had a couple of kids with him, but it was a nice gesture by the club. We looked bright for the first 30 mins or so but lacked the killer punch when the few chances we had came our way. You wouldn't have seen me as I was in the Williams Stand which is where the cameras are located. Just the league and a trip to Wembley to look forward to now.

Any Wolves fans on here?.....your forwards looked good last night as you hammered the mighty terriers 4-1,full of pace and power.....or maybe it was our defenders making them look quick and powerful!
The scoreline flattered Wolves as Town had plenty of chances and your keeper had a good game but they will pick up plenty more points if they continue to play like that.

 This is from a paper , that , normally I wouldn't look at , the Daily Telegraph , I though the Laird might want a read. .

Friday February 27

Falkirk v Rangers (19.45), Scottish Championship, BT Sport 1 VM 547 / 549 HD, 19.30

Our weekly chance to check on what chaotic nonsense has befallen Rangers and what havoc Mike Ashley has managed to wreak north of the border in the last seven days carries us to a Friday night in Falkirk. Inevitably all the coverage, and most of the crowd, will be interested in the UK's most farcical club (settle down fans of Leeds and QPR, you've got nothing on these guys) but spare a thought for Falkirk who used to yo-yo up and down out of this league quite a bit before they suddenly found Hearts, Hibs and Billy Smart's Travelling Circus joining them at the second tier.

Currently fifth, Falkirk have a great chance to claim a famous win here given how abysmally Rangers are playing football, conducting their business, treating their wives, tending to their gardens, behaving on the way home from the pub and everything else besides.

Looks like league reconstruction has reared its ugly head again after a certain team fail to get promotion. .

From the BBC:
Scottish football could be set for its most radical shake up ever, with discussions ongoing between the Scottish Professional Football League and Scottish FA aimed at league reconstruction in time for the start of the 2016-17 campaign. Serious consideration is being given to a switch to two top leagues of 12 - split into three of eight - after each team had played each other twice.

Anyone see poor old Chelskis Willian get t**tted in the face twice on Sunday! Won a free kick, Fabregas tried to take it quick kicked it in his face, then later a spurs player kicked the ball hard at close range trying to keep the ball in play, smacked Willian full pelt from 2Metres in the face, made him cry, then Jose subbed him 5mins later!

A little over 10 years ago today, the greatest footballer to grace the British Isles died after failing to defeat the demons that beset him. He was given all the chances he could have wished for and all the help he needed... But sometimes in life, it's just not enough. He was also not alone, many hundreds of thousands face similar battles - some will win, some will lose... such is life and it goes on just the same.

Whilst George Best penned his own epitaph 'Do not die like me!' Perhaps it's a better tribute to remember him in his prime and appreciate that rarest of talents he possessed. All those who have lost others to their demons should also remember them in their prime too, for we all have that rare ability to truly touch someone.

Maradona good, Pele better, GEORGE BEST by acclaimed author Pete Mckenna tells the story of the fond remembrance of those lost, in their prime.

He's joining his brother Phil who is already coaching at the club. Apart from that as a connection the owner of Valencia also owns a 50% stake in Salford City with the other 50% split between Ryan Giggs, Nicky Butt, Paul Scholes and both Neville brothers.

Few waterlogged pitches this weekend!
To my relief my Alfie boy's Cup match wasn't cancelled for a second time, they got a great scoreline in their away win.

Happy Hammer this wknd, good result against Man Utd. Could have been several goals,good game for us,
Loius Van NoGoal had his Team booed off at the end!

Anyone seen the Ronaldo documentary film yet? I will be watching it with my boy in the Xmas Hols.

With a total of two away wins (no home ones)this season, the pressure was on him yesterday to get a result against his old club(pert-timers) . He was unable to get a result and tabled his resignation after the game , in the dressing room . .

Had Chelski had some creativity and a striker who looked remotely interested, they might well have one the game last night. That said, Leicester did everything that was asked of them and, in Vardy and Mayrez, they have two guys who know exactly where the rigging is. I don't think they have the legs to go all the way, but they have every chance of CL football next season. Some turnaround from last year, Ranieri has worked wonders!

Don't forget we won 7 and drew 1 of our last 9 premiership games last season under Nigel pearson.

But Ranieri has done brilliantly so far.

Poor old Goalkeepers get slaughtered if they make a misjudgement/mistake! A lot of players work hard on corners. Doubtful if Lee Holmes intended to score, some players practice whipping balls into the box. Check out the F2 Freestylers scoring from corners= https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=85DT46qGRuk. Had trouble with Youtube this morning!
Unlikely Exeter will beat Liverpool at Anfield in the replay recken they missed their chance at home, LFC played well against Arsenal. The next round against West Ham is live on BT Sport-get to see my Hammers in action.

West Ham's Payet and Valencia did some class free kicks midweek=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RE5YwpgN-xM.

My father-in-law was a professional goalkeeper in the 60s, he played in Valencia CF and a lot of lesser teams afterwards, and later he coached teams like Deportivo de la Coruña, Sabadell, Levante... Well, his wife has always insisted us she wouldn't like any of her grandsons playing as goalkeepers, even in amateur teams; talk about pressure!

Class player, Noble.  A classic box-to-box midfielder who always gets stuck in and has an eye for goal.  We had him on loan at Ipswich as a youngster and you could tell then he was going to have a good career.  Nice that he's a 'one club player', too.  Becoming a rare thing these days.

Not really, if you believe 'innocent until proven guilty'. He claimed he was innocent, the club and fans supported him. Then it turns out the law has him bang to rights so he fesses up. Club and fans drop him like a bad habit, understandably pissed off that we took him at his word and he was guilty all along. Totally understandable.

Getting this thread back on track, it's FA Cup tomorrow. Interested to know if fans of lower league clubs, and Prem also-rans, still get a buzz out of the cup, or has it lost its magic? We (Leeds) go to Watford tomorrow, but I'd happily trade a win there for a top 6 finish in the league. There's so much money in the Prem that, year on year, it becomes more and more of a holy grail. And increasingly difficult to get into, and stay in. The cup has become secondary to the pursuit for promotion and the money that brings. Without money, it's an almost Herculean task. Great to see what Leicester are achieving on a relative shoestring, but they're the exception rather than the rule.

Don't think the Top Boys of the Prem are too fussed, they are more for winning the League and Champions League. Mid/Lower Prem Teams seem to be up for it, a chance for them to get some Silverware when the Top Boys don't go for it.

Good chance for lower League Teams to earn more revenue, players make a name, possibly putting themselves in the shop window for Transfers. Always good to see Cup upsets against the Prem Teams as long as it's not your one!

The question surrounding the FA's wealth has been asked many times before. Spain and Germany are, I believe, smaller associations but are light years ahead of Britain in terms of how they invest in all aspects of football such as grassroots, officials, facilities etc. And no coincidence they are way ahead of us in purely footballing terms, too

Back on the pitch, we went out without a whimper to Watford yesterday, and our season is over before the end of February. Possibly a record, even for Leeds! Maybe next season the mad Italian will get it right, and give our coach (whoever that might be) the tools to get us back to the big table?

Spain and Germany are, I believe, smaller associations but are light years ahead of Britain in terms of how they invest in all aspects of football such as grassroots, officials, facilities etc. And no coincidence they are way ahead of us in purely footballing terms, too

Back on the pitch, we went out without a whimper to Watford yesterday, and our season is over before the end of February. Possibly a record, even for Leeds! Maybe next season the mad Italian will get it right, and give our coach (whoever that might be) the tools to get us back to the big table?

Unlike most fans outside of Leeds I always want them to do well, such a huge club and your just rotting in the championship with no real investment or change to get them back in the premiership.

If true, then Deschamps is a fool!

A lot of gooners on social media bemoaning the defensive-minded formation Wenger went with last night. against a team like Barca, it would have been madness to have tried to go toe-to-toe with them. As it was, they got done twice on the counter. Game over, I think. First goal was a peach!!

Celtic's first ever European match wis against Valencia in whit wis called the Fairs Cup in them days. (Noo the Europa League). Prior to managin' Celtic, the great Jock Stein wis in charge ay a Dunfermline team that beat Valencia 6-2!

Great European night we had at Celtic a few years back against youse. We won 1-0 tae make it 1-1 oan aggregate before losin' the penalty shoot out, but the atmosphere that night wis up wi' the best.

You are right , 1974, what a team. .we could scored more goals . .

We don't have players like him anymore, guys that were not concerned about how their hair looked or the colour of their ponsey boots . You wont see the kind of commitment that guys like Jinky had either . .

I'm more relieved that no Hammers will get injured playing in meaningless "friendlies"

Having international breaks at this point in the campaign is sheer bloody lunacy imho, although hopefully we can use the time to get everyone fit for the push for 4th!!!

Dr,

Neil Lennon was hounded out of Glasgow by bigots who didnt like him because he stood up for what he though was right.Bombs and bullets in the post and 24hr security for his family.
I can't figure why he wants another go, unemployed or not.

For me that ship has sailed and we need fresh blood...Lennys a legend and I don't want him tarnishing that.

For the record I've been in his company a few times when I stayed near him in the west end of the city.A gentleman and a very intelligent one at that.
Just because you snarl when managing your team disny make you a bad person.  ;)

I was aware that he got a bit of grief, Woody, but not to that extent. Threatening a man's family, whatever his beliefs, is unacceptable. In fairness to Lennon, he came across really well when he was an analyst at the last World Cup.  And I have no issue with a manager showing a bit of passion, rather that than sitting po-faced like Wenger!

Big Mick made a better fist ay managin' Sunderland n' Ipswich than Roy Keane did - n' ah worry that Keane might be appointed. 

Let's face it - Sunderland havenae had a successful manager since Stokoe.  Ma mate's a Makem n' ah watched a succession ay terrible performances fae them the first few years after ah moved tae London.  McCarthy wis decent in charge ay the ROI.

Malky McKay wid huv been a decent appointment at Celtic if he wisnae such a disaster oan the race relations front.



Title: Re: The official Modculture football thread
Post by: Rod on May 11, 2016, 02:37:48 AM
Sorry but your first statement is absolute bollocks at least as far as Sunderland is concerned. We got relegated with McCarthy in charge at the end of that season with a premiership nadir record of 19 points. We got less points with him in charge that season than we did with the disastrous Wilkinson. We then got promoted out of the championship at the second attempt which was dogs**t quality at the time, and then he beat his own premiership record by getting us relegated again, this time with only 15 points.

As for the rest of your post I'm not sure what point you're making. We're on about McCarthy and his merits or lack thereof in taking Celtic to some kind of next level, so why make the obvious point about Sunderland being s**te?  I make the point that as the Scottish Premier is a one horse race and you're likely to qualify for Europe most / every year, if you're looking for a manager to take you deep into the champions league, a serial failure like McCarthy is not the man to do it IMO.

As for Sunderland's managers, why is that relevant? We've had a series of disastrous appointments with only a few rare moments of hope for the last several decades and anyone saying anything else is purely delusional. Keane showed some promise before his mental instability reared itself again, but I reckon you'd be hard pushed to find many people who would disagree that accepting his failings he built a team that played with a lot more fight than any team McCarthy had with us. Comparing points per game and win ratios McCarthy and Keane are very similar with Sunderland but Keane only had one season playing crapper opposition in the championship while McCarthy, who managed us for more games (142 vs 100) had two. Granted Keane had a bigger budget than McCarthy, but what has McCarthy done since? Got fired with Wolves who were relegated soon after and then blundered around mid table championship with Ipswich. What in the world would make anyone believe he's the man to take a team deep into the champions league and compete with the likes of Real, Barca and Bayern? If you think he's the man - good luck to ya, but don't say you weren't warned!

Tae get back tae the proper fitba talk - ah wid love Celtic tae try n' sign up John McGinn for next season.

Ideal replacement fur "Broony" whose legs look tae huv gone. N' we could sweeten the deal fur the Hibees by offerin' them Henderson or Stokes oan a permanent basis.

The Belgium footy and cycling shirts look decent but I'm really surprised that they are happy to tip their flag over on its side so it looks eerily close to the German flag. Having been trampled by the Germans twice in the last century maybe they're just preparing for the inevitable again?

Could you see the Frogs doing something similar and ending up with a Dutch flag on their chests?

Seriously though, yes it's good to see you performing at a reasonable level now. I like Monk, one of the new younger managers with different ideas and methods. Similar to Lee Johnson at my club. 5th now, and playing some nice football too...just hope Aston Villa don't come calling now, although I'd hope he'd tell them where to go if they did.

Good game last Tuesday night, Steve, thought we were worthy of a point but poor finishing let us down. We've been crying out for a young manager for years, hoping Cellino doesn't f**k it up for us. City going really well and playing good football, too. A well run club, I always look for their results as I like to see them doing well. Except against Leeds!! Hopefully Villa will look elsewhere

Not too many Leeds fans on here, but we moved into the play-off spots for the first time since Boxing Day 2013 by beating Norwich in their own back yard today. Particularly pleasing since they poached player after player from us over the last few years. Wouldn't be surprised to see Alex Neil as the next managerial casualty, lots of their fans not happy. Conversely, there's a feelgood factor around Leeds at the minute; players, management and fans all pulling in the right direction. ER sold out for visit of Newcastle in a fortnight's time, and that's for a televised game. Even our mad chairman is staying out of the headlines, long may it continue!!

Particularly pleasing since they poached player after player from us over the last few years. Wouldn't be surprised to see Alex Neil as the next managerial casualty, lots of their fans not happy. Conversely, there's a feelgood factor around Leeds at the minute; players, management and fans all pulling in the right direction. ER sold out for visit of Newcastle in a fortnight's time, and that's for a televised game. Even our mad chairman is staying out of the headlines, long may it continue!!

Glad your team is doing well Doctor. .

Per Alex Neil , I always thought he was a bit of a thug as a player, though he did seem to make a good job of managing Hamilt*n . I suspect he has now found his level of incompetence . . 8)

Tough times at St Mirren Park this season, Mr B, hope you can turn a corner. I'm not gloating, Leeds have an awful habit of shooting themselves in the foot, so I'll just enjoy it while I can!

Not a fan of Neil, he comes across as an unpleasant wee sh*te. I think his days are numbered if they don't pick up shortly.

One of those things, Daz. Everything clicked last season, and you built up a momentum that was unstoppable. This season, teams have got wise to your tactics, don't play a high line etc. Doing well in CL, so it's not like you've become a bad team overnight

You're right..  I expected us to struggle a bit this season.  I'd be happy to finish mid table and get through the CL group.  That's still very possible.  But how we're playing this season we could well be in a relegation battle which would be a disaster after the highs of last season.

Losing kante has been the biggest factor, we practically gave him away too.  He wasn't replaced and our defense now is totally vulnerable.

Plus the surprise factor has gone, no-one knew how to play us, now they do and  and we can't play any other way.

I knew we'd struggle this season but I am still slightly hopeful we can recruit well in January and stay up.  There are some poor sides this season in the premiership.

But it would be typical Leicester to win a title one year and get relegated the next.

Kante did all the donkey work, allowed the crative players to do their thing, was never going to be easy replacing him. And you're right, you've been found out to a certain extant. but still being in the CL is a big plus for January, should allow you to get some decent players in. Hope so, be a shame to see the fairytale champions relegated the following year

Still buzzing from Leeds' display against Derby on Friday night. We only won 1-0 but, bar a 10 min spell at the start of the second half, we absolutely destroyed them. And that was with a makeshift defence featuring 3 RBs! Garry Monk has done a sterling job; we're not the strongest squad on paper, and we've spent little compared to others, but there's a real togetherness and synergy about the place. After 12 years of grief and disappointments, we are finally moving in the right direction, both on and off the pitch. Genuine contenders this season, it's a good time to be a Leeds fan.

We wur poor first half n' GMS oan the right wis as good as a man doon.  Substitutions made the difference tae us. In Scotland we only need tae play well fur aboot half an hour tae beat embdy this season.

Yes , a couple of Sellic fans at the end said pretty much the same as Rodgers. .

http://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/celtic-boss-brendan-rodgers-says-9969970

Celtic supporting buddie of mine says we are the first Scottish team to go in ahead at half time there since September 2014. Doesn't matter a great deal when it pans out 4-1, but shows how hard it is to go there and achieve even that.

Leading up till the 50th minute was not what I was expecting against The Scottish champions who have not lost a league game. We were very well organised and kept a good shape , worked hard and just tired towards the end. The St Mirren support were magnificent. Celtic were up the tunnel when Saints were walking back from the Saints support I saw many Celtic fans in the main stand applause our team heading for the tunnel. That in itself tells you all you need to know. 

The Ayr game was the turning point , Ross has now got the players he wants playing the way he wants . Kirkcaldy on Wednesday is a must win as we now focus on safety and winning the diddy cup when we face the Arabs later this month . .

Any of you porridge munchers interested in buying retro Celtic tops before I put them on eBay?

I have two unworn short sleeved, size appears large or XL.

One is home with the embroidered badge front and center. Umbro in big letters below and a white patch on the back for a number. White collar with two green stripes and a closed v neck and 'Celtic' on a green stripe across the top of the V. The green stripes have a diamond pattern in them of darker green.

The other is away, solid green with white v neck piping. 'Carling' on the front in that felt stuff they used to use with a few small cracks otherwise mint. Mesh panels in the sides, yello Nike swoosh on right chest and yellow star above embroidered badge front and center. Size L

Haven't snooped around to see what they go for but thought I would offer them up here first. Pics if you're interested. Cheers, Rod.

Last Celtic jersey ah bought wis tae wear at the 2003 UEFA Cup Final.  Used tae wear then fur fives but ah havenae played in years.

More ay a t shirt wi' a Celtic print or polo shirt man these days.  (My Da had a cousin wha' wis wi' the Celtic n' ah managed tae get a t shirt wi' him oan it at Christmas).

The shirts urnae particularly retro tho'.  Nike didnae make any shirts until aboot 2006. n' the Umbro shirt sounds like it dates fae a few years earlier.

Wis a sore point when we had tae start puttin' numbers oan the jerseys cos we'd always had the numbers oan the shorts before that.

So thanks fur offerin' but the shirts urnae fur me.

In October last year we sacked Alex R*e as manager and brought in Jack Ross who was an ex-player. In January Jack shipped 11players out and replaced them with 11 new guys , then he got them to gel together , stopped losing silly last minute goals and principally, got us,  the fans right behind him and the team . .

Jack Ross is a young inexperienced manager but he has proven he has got what it takes and has convinced decent players from far and wide to join a team rooted at the bottom of the table to join him in his Great Escape. . :D

Indeed , Doc. With the big team getting promotion this season and no big team coming down , if we do escape which is likely( it isn't over until the fat lady sings) , then there is a strong chance he will take us to promotion next season which would be fantastic . We have already beaten the top team and a Premiership team in the Cup and even gave the Premiership Champions a run for their money for about 50mins . . 8)

You are right , it is never a penalty and the Mothercare "goal" is never a goal but that is Willie Collum (more of a job title than a name) for you. .

The stramash after Broonie gets the red should not have been allowed . There should have been more cards , in particular for the guy that pushed Broonie to the ground , he started the stramash. .shocking behaviour

The good news is that you have won the League anyway and Broonie will still make it for the Cup game. .

Collum shouldnae be allowed near any game , he spoils it . .

There should be an investigation into the tuechter game as the obvious dive should be punished and also a wee look at the stramash needed too.

Plus side is , there were some good goals , in particular the Robert's one was a peach. .


ETA; looked at it again . It would appear that Van der Weg shoves Roberts to the ground just at the edge of the box just prior to the red  card and then he runs over to push Broonie to the ground. .after the red card

 The Great Escape (06/05.17)

Well the time is right, to sit and reflect,

About a season, we would rather forget.

The first few games, were a waste of space,

And showed that the manager, should be replaced.

But many cried, “Not Jack”, without hesitation,

He won’t save Saint Mirren from relegation.

The team was in freefall, so far behind,

To not see our fate, you’d have to be blind.

At Christmas we were, a team who were dead,

We were gone no matter which tabloid you read.

Come January Jack started, to ring the changes,

By the end of the window, a team full of strangers.

And then what we saw, from that day on,

A brand new ethos, the team was reborn.

Suddenly we could beat, all in our path,

But it still seemed unlikely, you do the math.

By the end of April, we all could believe,

That Jack could save us, and a sigh we would heave.

Yet due to our manager’s, tactics and cunning,

By the end of this day, we were happy and sunning

So I say that this year, and I say it with reason,

Should be recorded, as the Lazarus season.

Time fur a wee poem. . 8)



It is time to sit, ponder and muse

About the team recently managed by John Hughes

At Christmas they were 19 points ahead

Of St Mirren who looked totally dead

What a margin, oh what gap

Raith were fine, St Mirren in the crap

Big Yogie a' down on us he could look

Us for fools he mistakenly took

They got lazy, over confident and tardy

St Mirren even managed to offload them Ryan Hardie

For St Mirren did what you guess?

They kicked on, transformed after beating TNS

Raith Rovers they started to stall

And about it big Yogie could do eff all

St Mirren's hopes they remained alive

and when Raith came calling, the Buddies scored five

On the last day Raith needed to beat Ayr

But St Mirren were playing the champions could we possibly expect mair

And on that day St Mirren drew one each

and a lesson toYogies  Raith Rovers the Buddies did teach

So onto the play offs the Kirkcaldy men went

and on survival they were surely hell bent

But by now Yogie had a team that were oh so reeking

And Raith Rovers went and lost on pens to Brechin

So will Yogie stay, manage and fix his mistake

Nah he's away already the man's a fake

With St Mirren's fortunes he toyed

And his team ended up relegated and he is now unemployed

An iconic pic Laird.

Big Billy was the first captain to lift that trophy as Real Madrid kept the other one which was donated by L'equipe.

Have you watched the 2 documentaries yet..BBC and STV

A wee tear in ma eye watchin them thinking about my Mum and Dad and how much it meant to them.No memories of it as I was 3 at the time.


No seen the STV documentary yet, but ah watched the BBC yin which wis great.  Also the BT Sport show oan Iron Man Sean Fallon (which is bein' repeated at the weekend if ye missed it).

Like yirsel' ah wis jist that wee bit too young tae really remember the Lisbon game.  (First match ah really remember watchin' oan telly wis the 1969 Cup Final n' ah wis taken tae ma first games the followin' season.)

Feel especially sentimental aboot Lisbon tho' (apart fae the obvious reasons), cos my Da's cousin wis a member ay the official party at the time.


Let's hope fur daein' the treble the morra as the perfect tribute.

I remember it vaguely . I remember my old dad telling me that the streets were deserted that day as it seemed the whole of the country were watching the match. What a week it was 50 yrs ago with Glasgow Celtic FC lifting the cup and the following day The Beatles released Sgt Pepper album. .

Of course the first team in Scotland to win a European trophy were Paisley Saint Mirren FC when they lifted the Barcelona Cup in 1922. . 😎

The best thing about that team was that IIRC all but one of them came from within a kick up the arse from Glasgow, and that one player was only from 20 miles away or something. Players and fans both equally invested in a team's home town. How sad things have changed so much since then eh? Progress!

Statement from Jack Ross

    Club News   

Jack Ross has issued the following statement to St Mirren supporters on the back of speculation linking him to the Dundee job.

"Following speculation regarding my position as the manager of the club, I can confirm that I remain focused on continuing to build on the momentum we created in the second half of last season.

"James and I have put in a lot of hard work already and will continue to do so as we strive to prepare a squad capable of challenging in what will be a hugely competitive and demanding Championship.

"It remains my responsibility to reward the loyalty and passion of our supporters with a team which they can be proud of."

 España have always been good to watch . The last time our two countries met I think was about 7 years ago at Hampden and it ended 2-3 , Scotland came back from being 0-2 down after Whitaker caused Spain to get a pen' , Whitaker was later sent off . Nowadays Whitaker isnae good enough for a game for Scotland , infact , he isnae even good enough to play for  Hib's  ;D. However , more recently the Scottish chicas met the Spanish chicas and it ended 1-0 to the Scots lassies  :D

A couple of years before that Scotland faced Italy at Hampden , it was 1-1 until the dying minutes , then Hutton was barged off the ball by an Italian .The Spanish ref' gave Italy the foul just ouside the box and Italy scored . . >:(

Not sure about that Simon, Spain have been terrible to watch in more recent times.  It's not necessarily their fault though as a lot of teams play deep, so what you get is a 1000 Spanish passes going side to side for the majority of games.

Michael O'Neill has worked miracles, bud, we are together as a squad and the synergy he has created is taking us to new heights. 7 clean sheets out of 8, and we've only been beaten by the world champions. We could, of course, draw a big gun in the play-offs and that might well be that, but it's a long time since we've had a realistic chance at WC qualification. GAWA!!!  ;)

. .meanwhile , in Northern Britain Scotland are hammering Malta 1-0 :D

Good results all round last night. England beating Slovakia did us both a favour, Mr B; gives Scotland a chance at the runner-up spot and helps Norn Iron in terms of what pot we'll be in for the play-off draw

I watched the Norn Iron highlights and per that , your team played very well and looked very much like a cohesive team . . 8)

Michael O'Neill has worked miracles, bud, we are together as a squad and the synergy he has created is taking us to new heights. 7 clean sheets out of 8, and we've only been beaten by the world champions. We could, of course, draw a big gun in the play-offs and that might well be that, but it's a long time since we've had a realistic chance at WC qualification. GAWA!!!  ;)
Indeed the guy has done a great job and got the team to come together like a gang , all fighting for one another , you can see the camaraderie . Think the last I saw a team like that from these islands was when Charlton was at Eire . .

Be great to see all home nations + rep ire get through, I can't remember the last time that happened....has it ever happened?

Not in my time, Daz. Only Scotland were absent at the Euros, but I think that's maybe as close as it's came in the modern era

Scotland were posted missing for a while but we might have turned the corner if we can find a couple of centre halves and maybe a decent RB , then world domination could be possible. . ;) 8)


Tierney is a decent right back - even if he is really a left back.

Ralston might be an option soon n'aw.


The centre half options ur shockin' tho'.

Wid be the same logic that saw Danny McGrain play left back fur Scotland even tho' he wis a better right back than Sandy Jardine (who wis a decent player n'aw admittedly).

Arses well & truly felt in the Champions League last night.

Thought we showed PSG too much respect n' didnae get stuck in enough.  Also we played too open a style n' shoulda jist gone ultra defensive.

Totally outclassed tho'

Only highlight fae a Celtic perspective wis Neymar gettin' booked fur divin'.

A phenomenally talented laddie, but a despicable, classless little pr1ck ay a human bein'.  A fact highlighted by his refusin' tae shake hands oan the final whistle.

Ah wouldnae shed any tears if somebody ended his career wi' a leg breakin' tackle.  (After he's smashed some goals past Anderlecht).
