  1. I've met him before. He's actually a nice guy, funny in a dry humour sort of way. Typical bloke from Greater Manchester. He's terrible on twitter. Hates it. Only bothers with it because, well, it's 2021 journalism.

    EURO 2020

    I am well aware of this; but I do think football is unique in that you have working class fans that will literally go to every single game (home, away) who then can't get a ticket because of corporate sponsors taking up a ridiculously large % of the ticket allocation. How many other sports have fans that go to literally every single game, and then can't go to a final? It can't be many. The public viewpoint from a pure football perspective is a total mixbag. You've alluded to the things being said - bottled the final, didn't utilise the attacking talent, didn't use his subs properl

    Hmm. This isn't traditional hooliganism, as such. For those that don't know what is happening here - this is hundreds (if not thousands) of fans illegally breaking in to the ground via an entrance for disabled people. Affectionately known as 'jibbing' into the ground by match-going football fans. The stewards are completely helpless to stop them. There isn't enough of them and frankly, they don't have the necessarily jurisdiction to use physical force to stop the fans entering. The fighting that you see is angry fans with tickets trying to subdue the fans that broken in. Howeve

    Can't be arsed second guessing penalties. Young teams have beaten old, old teams have beaten old. Well done to Italy. I think they were the better team for sure on the night. Frankly, I think the decision to sit so deep after the goal was a bad one without pace to play on the counter. Like I said, well done to Italy. Worthy winners.

    Trippier in, Saka out. 3-5-2. A gamble to go to a team he hasn't played so far in the tournament by Southgate.
  6. ๐Ÿ˜‚ I'm going to be a nervous wreck on Sunday. I want them to win so, so, so much. Most likable team and Manager in my lifetime by an absolute mile.

    Not much talk internationally about how ridiculously soft the Danish free kick was, I see. Frankly, there just isn't enough credit going around for this team.

    Best team (by some distance) won. Sterling and Walker were immense.
  9. Well, I disagree. In that timeframe I absolutely do believe he was in the same bracket as those names. Maybe the bottom of that list, but in the conversation.
  10. You didn't just he was overrated though, did you. What you actually said was this: Don't start backtracking without admitting your first statement(s) were ridiculous. How on earth is it possible to overrate a player with the production in a 5 year span that Thomas put up? Who in here is saying he's a first ballot HOF? Nobody is. I am using his statistical output against Jerry Rice to show how GREAT (not good) he was for 5 years. That is a LONG time in the NFL. Clearly, nobody thinks Demaryius Thomas was close to Jerry Rice as a football player, but he was elite for 5 years w
  11. Tell me who else he has made look THAT good, that is massively overrated also? Well, nobody has put up those stats in a 5 year period besides Jerry Rice so good luck.
  12. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ Perhaps you didn't read some of the stats on page 3. To save you looking for yourself, here is one: Only 1 player in NFL history has equaled Demaryiusโ€™ production in catches (535), receiving yards (7,332), TD catches (51) and most impressively wins (64) over a five-year period (โ€˜12-16): Jerry Rice (1992-96). Oh, and Sanders didn't even sign until 2014.

    Twitter frequently tells me how big of a mistake United made selling Lukaku. Funny, he looked like the same old player to me last night. Balls bouncing everywhere off him, misplacing of simple passes and a failure to score the easy chances that ultimately make a top striker. For as much as Italy deserved to win, Lukaku scores that easy chance and it's 2-2 and momentum with Belgium.

    Obviously the sl*t and c*nt comments are obscene, and those people who would say such a thing are disgusting. ... But the girl crying is hilarious. I lapped it up, just like the German families that have mocked me and my family every single holiday to Spain/Portugal I have been on for my entire 34 years on this planet. It's football for crying out loud (pun intended). She will get over it. Stop acting like people are mocking death or something. Would I post a picture of it on the internet? No, I find that a bit weird. But when I saw it after the game, I laughed, as she will when
  15. Ogden is pretty reliable, too (his mocking of Harry Kane's voice didn't help his career). Big gamble from United in my opinion. He will be on a monster wage, and is he really going to enjoy going from being a star in a successful Madrid team (since he has been there) to bein in rainy Manchester, playing for a team that is swimming against the Pep tide? I have my doubts. Can't fault the ambition from United, mind.
