Title: Other Games - 2019/20

I'm going to go out on a limb and predict that the eventual winner of the Champions League will not be partaking in this.

Quote
Four teams - from Andorra, Gibraltar, Kosovo and San Marino - were in Tuesday's draw for the preliminary round, which will take the form of a mini-tournament in Kosovo.

The semi-finals - Feronikeli v Lincoln Red Imps and Tre Penne v FC Santa Coloma - will be on 25 June and the final on 28 June, with the winner earning a spot in the Champions League first qualifying round.

They have just shown the VAR room for the women's world cup game between France and Norway.

It looks like mission control on the day of the moon landings except there are twice as many people and twice as many monitors involved.

Argentina was every bit as dreadful as you can imagine. Messi invisible. Thatís why I feel Ronaldo all round is the better of the two players. Something that I believe personally will haunt Messi and diminish how he is viewed looking back on his career.

Apparently that bloke who just hoofed the ball into his own goal, having gone at it with his wrong foot, is wanted by Manchester United but Crystal Palace want more than £50 million for him.  I'd never heard of him before this evening.

And that tackle by Choudhury was truly a shocker!  Hopefully the French player who was stretchered off is ok.

Thing is heís worth what twats like Man U will pay for him. And Palace know that, just as Leicester know it with McGuire, or before that Mahrez and Kante. We need to be the club that finds these players and sells them on for stupid amounts of money as we ourselves establish ourselves in the league.

Ben Obi Wan-Bissaka looked anything but a 60m player last night, and actually stopped Henderson from easily gathering the flick for the second French goal with his wrong foot mis-kick.  Choudhuri , what an idiot. For all their skills, and despite exhortations from the bench to play it out, the England players resorted to O'Neill style hoofing when down to 10 men.  It was always going to end badly.

No posts in this forum for two hours?!

Anyway such a Scotland way to go out of a major tournament but thought the reffing at the end was disgrace. Play stopped at 86th minute so she consults VAR for penalty. Takes three minutes looking at screen, awards penalty. It's finally taken in 91st minute. Then retake is ordered and scored 94th minute.

Full time whistle blown 96th minute. They should still be playing now.

Retake was harsh as I've seen keepers pretty much on the six yard box saving penalties and play just continues. Most penalties will have to be continually retaken next season if it's as strict as that tonight.

Never really watched him before but Calvert-Lewin looks fucking shit, he's decent (at most) in the air from crosses but he offers fuck all else. The U21s look completely toothless because he's been utterly anonymous.


Hagi (I assume he has a more famous dad) looks a proper player for them though, makes the game look very simple.

He's a bit like Kienan Davis, works hard and can be menace to back 4s but not really instinctive striker which is reflected in his goal tally.

Have to say not saying any of Tammy, Wan-Bissaka or Foden for must win game is moronic management. I think this is best crop of under 21s for a long time particularly in the creative midfield area but again poor manager for them.

40 or so appearances the last season and 8 goals and the best ratio is in the league cup which could have been lower league opposition versus 40 appearances and 26 goals. So lets play the one because at least he played in the PL......

As I said, I've never seen him play before but on last night he's nothing like Davis, he played like he was waiting for someone to put it on a plate for him. Tammy came on and we immediately had a focal point and started creating good chances which hadn't happened for the previous 70 odd minutes.

I can confirm that Calvert or Calvin Everton bloke is shite. If he's the best u23 center forward we have we are fucked. Thankfully he's not and he's only in the team because Boothroyd is a twat.

JonJoe Kenny instead of Bissaka? Yeah ok

In a game that you are dominating possession no Foden to help unlock the door? Yeah Ok

Watching the ivory coast game (on the TV with the Windies in the cricket on the laptop), Bony was a great player a few years ago but he looks dreadful here, can't hit the target, doesn't hold the ball up very well and doesn't look all that interested to me, Man City seems to have destroyed him by paying him a fortune to watch the game. I know Kodjia is frustrating but I can't work out how Bony has got ahead of him in this team. Namibian keeper and defence are very poor though.

There seem to be a lot of female fans at the tournament mentally kicking every ball whilst watching their nation play. Some close to tears. Any passionate football fan must be like me and watching and thinking how often we ourselves have gone through that and looked like that at big games over the years.

Unfancied Madagascar through to the quarter finals 4-2 on penalties.

Assombalonga is wank, can't believe some of the fees shelled out for him. He's been absolute toss whenever I've seen him play.

We should have snapped him up when we had the opportunity. He'd probably would still have had 3 years left in his contract.

Those are similar stats to how they nicked a lot of points last season. Tight at the back and pinch a goal on the break. So much for the owners wanting to see a different and more attacking style of football.

Title: Re: Other Games - 2019/20
Post by: cdbullyweefan on August 05, 2019, 12:15:53 PM
Since 1986, when Liverpool won The Double, yes.

In 1971 Leicester were invited to play Arsenal as Second Division Champions. Arsenal were already on tour, though, so Leicester played FA Cup runners-up Liverpool instead. In 1961 Tottenham played an FA XI (effectively England minus Tottenham players).

From 1971 to 1973 neither the Champions nor the FA Cup Winners chose to enter. Villa were invited in 1972 for reasons which have become obscure. We lost to Man City, who finished fourth in the top flight and were chosen because... I've no idea.

The competition had a variety of invitees in its early years but had generally settled down to League Champions vs FA Cup Winners format by World War Two. The exceptions were those years above and 1950, when England's World Cup squad played a Canadian touring XI.

That was a good win for Leeds, Derby at Huddersfield tomorrow.

I think Leeds will do it this year
Bielsa is a good manager in his second term there I think they will have enough



Unfortunately, I suspect they will, too.

My accumulator is Liverpool (gut-wrenching), Leeds (gut-wrenching), Portsmouth and Salford (mildly distasteful)

I have gone for Liverpool, Albion, Sunderland and Plymouth.

I've gone for us, Cardiff, Portsmouth and Mansfield.

Not going that well so far. I'll feel better when we win on Saturday evening.

I honestly think a good season for them will be avoiding relegation to league one. When you lose so often in premier league it's hard to then switch to winning 20 odd games in championship.

We only won once in our first 12 championship games in 16/17 and that was after spending 40m.

You can be unlucky to an extent and get relegated with a reasonable points total but Huddersfield had the season from hell last year and needed snookers by the new year, similar to us when we went down and like Derby a number of years back. It isn't easy to bounce back quickly after such a terrible season. We definitely suffered from the hangover of relegation in the first few months of our first season in the Championship.

He was trying to make himself look special, by shouldering the ball back to his goalie when a simple header would have sufficed.  Huddersfield fan I work with was beside himself today with Elphick's performance, who looked to have put on more than a few pounds over the summer.

Got my SKY signal sorted out in time to put the Small Heath game on and find out they are two down to a team a division below them. From what the commentators are saying Small Heath have played a few youngsters. I don't know much about their squad so I don't know who are or aren't the experienced players and who are or aren't the rookies. Surely with the ins and outs of the summer they would have wanted to bed their new players in and get used to playing with other. I had to have a look on Google Images to find out which one of the strange faces on their bench was their new manager. Before the game I had a bet on Portsmouth to win 2-1 at 8/1 so in the second half I might well be in the unusual position of wanting Small Heath to pull a goal back.

The first time I heard 'The Pompey Chimes' was when they came to Villa Park in the League Cup in 1983. They had just spent a lot of money on the likes of Kevin Dillon, Neil Webb and Alan Biley. Their away support was magnificent that night. I think they filled the away end  and sang all game. I think we won 3-2.

Just checked. We did win 3-2 with goals from Withe, Evans and Walters.

Best way to to to silence the doubters and please the fans, get a good away win against a decent side in the first league game of the season. Then go and win a tricky away cup tie.

Or go and select a weakened side in that cup game and lose heavily when you could have gone for it, qualified for the next round and a possible money spinning tie and built on the confidence from the first game.

If their policy is to introduce the kids then he did right. I saw the game and up until the point to Portsmouth getting their first I would have said Blues weíre slightly on top, in an attacking sense anyway. I think their plan is to stay in the division if they can. Theyíll need to do that with some of the kids they played last night as they have no other choice. They are in for a difficult season.

Surprised more hasn't been made about Norwich not signing any defenders, they conceded nearly 60 goals winning the league last year. We were much better defensively than them once Mings was signed.

Obviously can't judge too much on tonight given who they're playing but they won lots of high scoring games last season (often with 98th minute winners) and that's going to be very hard to replicate this season.

Gagging to watch a bit of football after the long break, and Sky choose this tedious mismatch. Thanks a fucking lot. At least there is Jags v Arabs on BBC Scotland.

Monaco-Lyon is pretty good although you've missed Fabregas getting sent off which is always an amusing sight.

Norwich got Chelsea and Man. City as two of their first three home games. Ouch.

That's one thing you can't really control as a newly promoted team, the fixture list.

Would rather have plenty of winnable games in first 10 as ourselves and Sheffield do than Norwich playing lots of the top 6. Leaves the goal difference in ruins and having to play catch up to those above.

I doubt it, they look pretty good going forward but their defence is pathetic, Liverpool could have 6 or 7 here and haven't had to work all that hard for it, it's just like our defence last season. They just look like they're going to need to score 2-3 every game to stand a chance, and it won't happen.

As I'm typing they've scored but that's also a sign of how much liverpool will miss Allison, really poor from Adrian.

I think with the bringing it out from the back thing, their defenders weren't good enough to do what was being asked of them.  The more they tried to work it out from the back, the worse it got.  If those are his first choice defenders, their manager might need a rethink.  At least when away at a top six club.

It wasn't just the defenders, they were all getting caught in possession.  That said they did improve in the last half hour and when they did keep hold of the ball they created chances of their own.  They did that all match actually.  Could easily have scored three themselves.

Norwich got promoted because they were the highest goalscorers in the Championship. They  scored 93 goals. The next highest were Albion with 87 and Villa with 82. But Norwich conceded 57 goals, which was more than Sheffield United, Leeds, Boro, Derby, Bristol City and Forest. You can concede a fair few goals in the Championship and still do well as we ourselves proved but you won't do much good in the Premier League by leaking lots of goals and just hoping you score more than you concede.

To be fair to them, it's not quite as straightforward as that.  They probably finished first by winning more away (12) games than anyone else, which was largely based on only conceding 23 away goals which was fewer than anyone else.  (We weren't too shabby either, only conceding 25).

So they simply had to strengthen because you cannot rely on that at a higher level. Thatís why Iím so glad we did what we did.

The outstanding team in our division last season went to Anfield, played pretty well and still got dicked.  A salutary lesson that there is a time and place for playing out intricately from the back and there is a time and place for keeping it simple.

And yet, Bournemouth have been successful in that division playing good, passing football. Tony Pulis kept teams up playing anti-football.

It's probably best to play the style of football that best suits the personnel.

FWIW, I don't think we are ideally suited to defending in numbers and trying to scrape nil-nils and one-nils. I'd rather see us go for it, and reckon that would be our most successful policy. Even if, inevitably, we suffer the odd hammering along the way.

That was my point really: do it if you have capable players.  On that evidence (admittedly only one game) Norwich don't.  It was funny to listen to Carragher, who you assume wouldn't be averse to seeing Liverpool score a hatful, tearing his hair out every time Norwich gave the ball away outside their box.

I think Norwich might now be in danger of retracting so far into their shell that they'll struggle to get back out, given their opening fixtures. And from the dodgy highlights reel I've watched, that 'pool penalty area wasn't exactly impenetrable.

Tighten up at the back and be more clinical in front of goal and they'll be alright.  Easier said than done.

Nah, I meant more that there will inevitably be occasions when getting the ball as far away from our area as possible as quickly as possible (not as a means of getting the ball to the front man but as a means of clearing danger) will be the smart choice and I trust the players will be smart enough to recognise that.

For all of the money they have spent in the past few years and including this summer on players who are actually very good, West Ham just aren't at the races versus Man City. It's going to be like that for almost every side vs them this season with the exception of Liverpool and Spurs. The jump in quality is a little frightening and those sides are just ruthless in front of goal. That and their discipline in doing the basics really well.

They often seem to ignore the fact you can't legally score a goal with your arm so an arm can't be offside. Also the old 'ball to hand' seems to have gone out of the window. If you get a ball blasted at your arm at point blank range with no chance of avoiding it there is a fair chance you will have a penalty given against you. I have seen those given even after a VAR review.

Two men have been charged with a public order offence connected to an Arsenal player, police have said.

Ferhat Ercan, of Highgate, and Salaman Ekinci, of Tottenham, were arrested on Thursday outside the north London home of Gunners star Mesut Ozil.

Ozil and Sead Kolasinac were not in Arsenal's squad for Sunday's Premier League opener at Newcastle due to "further security incidents".

Both players were targeted by carjackers in north London last month.

According to reports, the men were arrested after becoming involved in an altercation with security staff outside Ozil's home.

"Two men have been charged under Section 4a of the Public Order Act following an incident in Camden on Thursday, 8 August," the Met said.

Mr Ercan and Mr Ekinci, both 27, are due to appear at Highbury Corner Magistrates' Court on 6 September.

Mattťo Guendouzi plays his midfield role , hair and all, superbly. Passes and moves . And is composed in possession. You want your midfielder on that ball to have that. That's a thing.
It's highly impressive seeing his movement . I'd like the deepest lying Villa midfield to play like this. Just have a watch of how Guendouzi operates it's very impressive.

On composure it's the same with taking big chances.
The top scorer ,and arguably the best striker in the league , Aubameyang has just shown composure with an accomplished finish.

Entertaining game so far

Chelsea look decent when going forward but Tammy not offering much.

Both sides are bang average so far. Decent inter play but neither goalkeeper troubled too much

No wonder Wolves did so well last season if this is the supposed top 6 quality

I have never really had a problem with Spurs. My memories of them are of them winning FA Cups at the same time we were winning the league and the European cup and the 1981 FA Cup final replay was a classic. Plus in the early eighties we tended to do well against them at Villa Park and in the early nineties I saw us win a few at 'Ver Lane'. We even shared a trophy with them in 1981. Something my mum or my wife would think was 'quite sweet'.

My Dad was an Arsenal fan  ( He's not dead, I converted him ! ) and my brothers a West Ham fan, so it was engrained in me. Coming from the south, most kids who were dicks seemed to be Spurs fans growing up.

Really poor defending from Chelsea for that 3rd, I'll repeat, Chelsea are nowhere near good enough to challenge for the top 4 on this showing. Man U have been gifted the goals really, cheap penalty, poor hold-up play leading to a goal on the counter and piss poor defending against a fairly straightforward long straight pass.

Quite a few of us said Tammy wasnít ready or good enough for the Premier League. I have no doubt he will score his fair share of goals this season purely on the basis that Chelsea will create plenty of chances for him against lesser teams, but heís never going to be that forward to hold the ball up and create chances of his own at this level.

I guess what Iím saying is we donít know what happened behind the scenes after the playoff final. Itís possible we asked about him and Man U priced him higher than we wanted to pay or that they simply wanted to keep him. My guess would be if there was a chance of keeping him at a decent price we would have taken up on it. But I think with our intention to get deals done quickly we didnít want to wait and go back on forth and moved to alternative targets.

Comedian, presenter and gambler Lloyd Griffith did a very good programme on the subject which was on the BBC last week and is probably on iplayer. 'Can You Beat The Bookies'. He teamed up with a professional gambler. They were making money on obscure tennis matches in the middle of nowhere watched by one man and a dog by betting on points that had already been won but had not yet been officially registered by the umpires, most of whom were rather old and slow (they particularly targetted games where pro gambler knew the umpire was not lightning quick). Griffith was at home on his laptop linked to the gambler who was courtside wearing a hidden headset. They made a lot of money but had to operate incredibly quickly to pull it off. Plus their internet accounts were very quickly closed down when their betting patterns were monitored and sussed. Similarly several years ago people were 'buying money' by betting on 'arbs betting' or 'arbing'. That also involved internet betting and being very quick at spotting the opportunity. The simplest way of describing it is by imagining I have several internet accounts with different betting firms. Occasionally there is an anomaly whereby for example one betting company is offering 4/1 on Manchester United to beat Liverpool whilst another is offering 4/1 on Liverpool to beat Manchester United and another is offering 4/1 for the draw. So you can bet on all three outcomes and are guaranteed to win. Obviously that is an over simplification but it is the easiest way to describe it. I had a mate who was a stay at home Dad and he tried it over a six month period but with limited success as the window of opportunities are few and far between and even when they happen you have to be lightning quick to take advantage before the online bookies move the goalposts/change the odds.

Don't think they are. Don't remember a VAR check of any of the goals in our game.

And yes, at the risk of agreeing with Our Kid, was surprised we got away with the Kodjia handball. That looked far more of a penalty than some that were given in the Women's World Cup.

I think the Kodjia call was right, his hand was in front of his face which isn't unnatural when charging down a shot (and arms outside a natural position is the ghuideline for handball agaisnt defenders), the ref should've had a good view and didn't give anything so VAR couldn't overrule it. The flipside is the Wolves one where the rule is that any contact with the arm of an attacker that leads to a goal has to be disallowed and there were clearly grounds to overturn the goal.

The one that really doesn't work for me was the Jesus offside, when there's a couple of millimetres in it you can't say that the ref/lino has made a clear mistake in allowing the goal so that one should be "umpire's call", which i hope comes into this pretty soon.

I know, I've just spent 10 years working in live betting software applications *wink*

There's a delay built in before they'll take your bet anyway, so this seems massively over the top, unless the bookie isn't doing things properly.

I don't know if this ever bore fruit but I recall a few years ago, someone in the industry was developing a product which would listen to crowd noise and detect when a goal had been scored. Suspect it was vapourware.

Returning back to the original point, one of the reasons I'm glad I'm in the process of leaving the gambling industry is the endless fucking greed. It's not enough to absolutely coin it in with live betting, they're convinced there's more money to be added to their cash pile by getting people harassed like this.

That's precisely the attitude that has just obliterated the retail gambling (games) industry.

Defensive handball aren't always a foul. However, you cannot now score a goal if there was an attacking handball (even an accidental one) in the build up.

Hence the Wolves goal was correctly (and hilariously) ruled out :)

No golf umbrellas

Read that full thread BTW from the start, pretty chilling stuff.

It's because of what's known as 'courtsiding' in tennis.

It basically works that i'm at a live event, so I know what's happened a X seconds before the betting companies do. I'm in constant contact with someone ready to place bets.

There was programme on BBC 1 last week that actually showed a guy doing this, going to random Tennis tournaments in America and telling a guy back in UK to quickly place a massive bet before umpire inputs the score.

I had a mate who was a stay at home Dad and he tried it over a six month period but with limited success as the window of opportunities are few and far between and even when they happen you have to be lightning quick to take advantage before the online bookies move the goalposts/change the odds.

The proper outfits will do it with software rather than relying on someone being quick enough to spot what's going on.

It'd actually be relatively straightforward to write something that did that.

Hmmm.

Add in bookies will just close down your account or massively limit your stake once they see your betting patterns.

The guinea pig (comedian Lloyd Griffiths) was basically being told to put 1000 quid on 1/8 odds.

Obviously the online companies can just close your account at their own discretion if you are what was known back in the day as 'an unprofitable customer'. Back in the nineties and early noughties when I was managing betting shops and when the betting industry was relatively behind the times and still very much a 'pen and paper' operation we had what was known as 'logged customers' (not that those customers knew it as we were under orders to keep it quiet). They were customers whose every bet had to be logged in a book either because they regularly staked big money or because they had a decent win percentage rate. In extreme circumstances the company would refuse any more custom from the 'unprofitable customer'. In over a decade in the industry I never even came close to having to refuse to take a bet from somebody because they were unprofitable to the company.

I should add that it was a decade ago when my mate tried and failed to beat the system and any chances of beating the system now would be many many times more unlikely.

I was underwhelmed to see SKY have gone for Salford v Leeds as the live cup game tomorrow night. Although having said that I have to admit that after looking at all the fixtures very few if any stand out.  I think about the best one for me would have been Wimbledon at home to MK Dons.

Wimbledon and MK Dons are in the same division and play each other on a regular basis.

I think they should have selected the live cup games before choosing the early live Football League games. That way they could have avoided showing Salford twice and Leeds three times in such a short space of time.

I think UEFA don't like it when matches are televised that clash with their games, in this case the European Super Cup Final. England will often ignore this rule later on in the season, but presumably didn't consider it worth doing so this early. Rather than arranging televised games on Tuesday and Wednesday they arranged them on successive Tuesdays.

Shearer could take a decent penalty.

I liked Barry taking them but as he often went high, which made them pretty much unsaveable, he did occasionally sky them Richardson style. I remember him missing one late on at Newcastle which would have given us a rare win, although I think he scored 2 in the Bowyer/Dyer game.

Didn't both Richardson and Teale miss at Selhurst Park in a shoot out? I think Vinnie Jones scored the winning penalty for Wimbledon in front of the Villa fans and gave it the big 'un.

No Teale almost burst the back of the net. Richardson missed in both the Wimbledon and Tranmere games. I think his Tranmere pen hit the North Stand executive boxes. Thank God he was subbed prior to the Inter shootout in 94.

Stan Lynn was one of my all time favourites one of the hardest shots I've seen. He with other villa players were playing in a cricket match at Perry Barr Park some of them including Stan came and sat watching the festival league game I was playing in during their break, happy days.

Personally I think Tammy was and would be an asset and given the fact that he will struggle to establish himself at Chelsea (wont be the first or last) he needs an arm round his shoulder and told some home truths in this regard.  i reckon we could then get him back in the next transfer window.

Figuring it was worth a Google, Cuauhtťmoc Blanco is statistically* the best, followed by Graham Alexander then Le Tissier

*so the list obviously omits anyone really old for whom data on missed penalties doesn't exist.

Think Graham Alexander missed a penalty during the 90 minutes against Blues, in their amazing playoff game against Preston.

Still the funniest game I've seen, just pipping Celta Vigo at the Hawthorns, with the mad ref.

Heard them all on Talk Sport this morning slagging him off and read yesterday about how no-one knows where the goals are coming from for Chelsea.  It's amazing how they can dismiss someone after just one Premier league game.

The media is so up the Premier league's arse that that they don't see how anything outside of it could possibly count, and so happily dismiss any evidence of his actual ability.  He's proven himself in the Championship, he needs a chance to prove himself in the Premier league.   It's a step up, it will be harder, but you don't go from scoring 25+ goals a season in the Championship to being completely shit.

Will he be able to score 20 goals a season in the Prem?  I've no idea.  But he'll score more than a lot of strikers do in the top flight.  Maybe if Chelsea actually tried to introduce youth players he'd have had more experience and be able to hit the ground running now they're forced to play him.

Don't deserve to have him.

Have to say he does look slightly out of his depth at Chelsea. Totally understand why he feels like he needs to stay and take his chance for a place this season, but it does make me frustrated that he didn't want to try another season with us in the bottom half - which I'd say is his level at the moment.

I reckon Tammy will score goals for them if given a chance and a good run in the team. He was unlucky against Yanited but missed an easy one last night - he did have a habit of missing a sitter for every two or three he scored for us, and I think he'll need to cut that out in the PL.

Thought so. He doesn't deserve the abuse or to be written off after one and a bit games, but equally I didn't think he deserved to finish on the winning side yesterday.

Think Giroud plus Tammy rather than either OR could be a good partnership for Chelsea. Hopefully Lampard is too stubborn to try it, I'd quite like Chelsea to be crap and struggling when we play them.

Lampard Solskjaer nice guys I'm sure, but I hope they both fail spectacularly.

Shaun Teale and Steve Staunton took good penalties. Kevin Richardson by far the worst penalty taker I have ever seen at Villa.

Didn't both Richardson and Teale miss at Selhurst Park in a shoot out? I think Vinnie Jones scored the winning penalty for Wimbledon in front of the Villa fans and gave it the big 'un. I walked past his sponsored car on the way out and felt like keying it but I didn't. I do remember it was a big white BMW.
   1991?


I was thinking it was more like 1993.

Just checked it. 23/01/93 Villa Park 0-0 then the replay was Selhurst Park 03/02/93 0-0. Wimbledon won on penalties.

I remember him missing one against Newcastle when we'd come back from 2 down to 2-2, would have been the winner. Shaka Hislop was in goal for them and was a mate of Yorke's I think. Hislop dummied which way he was going to dive which meant Yorke's usual method of rolling it the other side was negated. To my mind Dwight was so shocked at a keeper saving it that he was on his heels and didn't get to the rebound quick enough. Still annoys me 22 years on!

I never felt confident when he took a penalty for Villa , he never hits them hard enough for my liking

I don't think Le Tissier used to particularly whack them, but he was probably the best penalty taker I can remember.

I think he only missed one and that was saved by his old team mate Tim Flowers who never let him forget it.

I think it was Crossley at Forest Damo. He also saved from Lineker in the 1991 cup final.

A Forest mate reckoned he had a very good penalty save ratio. I also recall reading a book on how to take penalties - it was the size of a Labybird book - and the author tested them on Crossley, who saved about 6-7 of them.

His record was truly abysmal, 1 win in 19.

I suspect the owners decided it was too harsh to judge him based on spankings in the PL when they were already all but down, so wanted to give him a chance to get things right in the second tier. For him to then get 1 point from the first 3 games and get knocked out of the cup by Lincoln.

In retrospect, they should have got rid of him before the summer.

Just an observation and not suggestive anything intentionally untoward but not often nowadays that you see an all white starting XI in a top league team but Burnley have managed it.

It's not the first time, L'Equipe accused them a couple of years back of racism but that was strongly denied.

Is that right? There really are some parts of the world I have less than no desire to visit. Burnley just sounds and feels unwelcoming.

Much like the rest of Lancashire.
Fuck all wrong with Lancashire, or Cumbria, for that matter.

I celebrated Luiz's goal yesterday, as did forty thousand Villa fans. Fans have always had a delayed reaction to celebrating dubious goal, you spend a couple of seconds looking over at the linesman or referee for the odd borderline goal, just as you will now with controversial looking goals.

I'm not a huge fan of the new offside rule, by would you have "felt sorry" for Rodriguez if his equaliser against Villa had been disallowed?

The difference with Rodriguez is that he punched the ball into the net.

The new rules around handball are not addressing that, they're addressing the build up to a goal.

To my mind, it is that rule which is the problem, not VAR.

The officials saw Rodriguez's handball. Wrongly, in my opinion, they judged that he hadn't handled it deliberately so saw no reason to disallow the goal. It would have been disallowed if the current handball rule was in place (regardless of whether VAR was also in place).

I know, but the confusing thing with the example of yesterday's Man City non-goal was that the handball was in the build up, and from another player - that's the change in rules for this season which is creating the absurd situation yesterday where the player 'scores', we have plenty of celebrating, only for it to be disallowed - after quite a while - for a handball from another player in the build up.

VAR plays a part of it, yes, but it's the rule tweak in this place which has dragged it to absurd levels of introspection and the daft delay.

Talking of new rules, the awarding of a drop ball when the ball changes possession as a result of hitting the referee is probably sensible. Surely the rule should also apply when the ball changes possession because the useless fucker prevents someone getting the ball by obstructing them, like that idiot Twatkinson yesterday.

Shite result for us, that. Don't think Palace will be near the drop so could have done without Sheff United winning.

Shows how fast things can turn around. Chelsea looked all over the place vs Man U and got battered. Looked better vs Liverpool but still ended up losing. And now against Leicester who are very decent have started really well and are leading. Outside of some poor individual errors which we will cut out over the season weíve looked pretty good a lot of the time vs Spurs and Bournemouth. We will be better against vs Everton as the team comes together.

Once you set the rules itís the refs discretion what they use to make a decision. But in reality they wouldnít go to it all the time anyway. Like I said in the NFL the ref really only goes to replay on challenge or when he needs some help. But the vast majority of things are called the old fashioned way.

Im probably setting him up to score a hat-trick when we play them but I have never seen anything in Lingard, I think he's absolutely crap.

He scored six goals in 13 appearances on  loan to Small Heath. That is a better record than their 'Hall Of Famer' Christophe Dugarry.

How that penalty was not overturned is a mystery. Pretty clear that what contact there was, Pogba made sure of by moving his foot deliberately into the defender.

Alan Smith called as a foul on the basis The defenderís leg was out there to prevent Pogbaís stride And stated that there doesnít have to be contact in that situation for a foul to be awarded. Heís correct too. If there isnít an outstretched leg Pogba has a clear run at goal.

In fairness, I only saw it from on angle, but it looked pretty much like Pogba was already on his way down, and moved his foot to ensure contact.

Solskjaer reckons Manchester United have two designated penalty takers in Pogba and Rashford and he leaves it to them to decide amongst themselves. The problem was they couldn't seem to decide between themselves and then another two players joined in seeming to be trying and failing to help them to decide.

Isn't it worst conversion percentage he has for players that took at least X amount? Shearer failed to score with the most I think, but he took a lot more than JPA so had a better conversion rate.

2-0 Small Heath. Juicy Bits and Alvaro with the goals. A poor game contested by two sides who for me will certainly be in the bottom half of the table come the end of the season, quite possibly bottom six.

I remember being in the pub for the England v Croatia game and when the team was announced I couldn't believe he had thrown a young keeper in for his debut in such a crucial qualifying game we needed to get something out of. We weren't exactly spoilt for choice at the time but I think David James was on the bench and he had been our keeper in the previous tournament and would have been far less of a gamble. Carson had looked decent for us until that game but he never really recovered from it. Same as Enckelman after the two Small Heath games and the Southampton game in 2002-2003.

Southampton snatched their first away of the season as Gordon Strachan's side narrowly beat 10-man Aston Villa.

The struggling Midlands side had to play most of the second half without goalkeeper Peter Enckelman.

Just 11 seconds after the restart Enckelman was sent-off after giving away a penalty that was converted by James Beattie.

The win saw Southampton move up one place into twelfth spot as Gordon Strachan's side won on their travels for the first time since March.

After a muted first half the game exploded into life as Enckelman again took centre stage in a Monday night game of football.

Just over a month ago the Villa goalkeeper was adjuged to have touched Olof Melberg's throw-in on its way to goal as Graham Taylor's side lost 3-0 to Birmingham.

This time the Finn was involved in a mix-up with Alpay, which saw Brett Ormerord sandwiched between the two Villa players.

Referee Steve Bennett immediately red-carded the goalkeeper.

Television replays suggested that it was Alpay - the transfer-listed defender who was returning to the Villa team after a five-week interlude - who should have been dismissed.

On came Stefan Postma to make his Premiership debut, but the Dutch goalkeeper's first task was to pick the ball out of the net after Beattie crashed his shot low into the corner.

The pity for Enckleman was that he had had a solid game up to that point.

I'm annoyed i find myself wanting Wolves to do badly.

I've never really minded them, quite liked them in fact, but so many of their fans have become absolute bell ends since they finished above us for the first time in thousands and thousands of years, I want them to lose.

I remember being in the pub for the England v Croatia game and when the team was announced I couldn't believe he had thrown a young keeper in for his debut in such a crucial qualifying game we needed to get something out of. We weren't exactly spoilt for choice at the time but I think David James was on the bench and he had been our keeper in the previous tournament and would have been far less of a gamble. Carson had looked decent for us until that game but he never really recovered from it. Same as Enckelman after the two Small Heath games and the Southampton game in 2002-2003. All live Monday night games.

I completely agree re Carson and your comment re James, Damo.

For Enckelman, I almost agree but I think he played his best ever game for us away at West Ham in April 2003 in a 2-2. He had an absolute stormer in the 2nd half that saved us from certain defeat. Bit that was a blip in his general demise following the two games against Them.

It was still a big call and it backfired. It reminded me of Ferguson dropping Jim Leighton for Les Sealey for the FA Cup final, except on that occasion the gamble payed off. I think one of Robinson's cock ups had been a mix up between him and Gary Neville that resulted in a bad goal conceded but I can't remember who it was against (possibly Croatia away?) or who was most at fault out of the two of them.

Robinson was finished from the moment that backpass bobbled as he was about to kick it away. Not really his fault but not the sort of goal you concede you can easily live down.

Edit: Yeah it was Croatia away game, surprised it was actually over a year before the infamous Wembley game so Robinson played many of the games after that.

From their regular 11 they actually rested Ruben Neves and Jonny who were both on the bench. Matt Doherty who had a great season last year was injured tonight.

It's still not the biggest squad but they do have a few more options to rotate in midfield.

I couldn't understand his complaining either, I think he complained just for the sake of it having been caught.  The interesting thing will be to see the if the next person that does it will be penalised in the same way.  Consistency innit?

I can't believe Solksjaer will last the season, having just watched their match.

They were absolutely awful. De Gea should never be beaten from where he was for Palace's second.

I watched the second half and Man U applied a lot of pressure with absolutely no final ball. Their goal was a deflection. Watching the look of disbelief on their fans' faces, amongst acres of empty seats, after Palace went back into the lead deep into injury time was hilarious. They've been spoiled for far too long.

How are you watching the match. Cry me a river if you would please

Been reading a bunch of Stoke stuff and it sounds so eerily like us at various stages from when RDM came in and the Bruce era. They have a load of players on a lot of money who in many cases donít want to be there. Results are poor and getting worse. They took a punt on a manager without a lot of experience and it hasnít worked out. Itís become a toxic environment and you can just see whatís coming with the parachute payments coming down and being lumbered with financial commitments they cannot escape combined with FFP restrictions.

And as we found out itís not only about how much you actually have or donít have it as much about how much you can or cannot spend under the restrictions. They have players they cannot shift easily. They banked on keeping their best asset, their goalie to get them up and heís had a complete nightmare.

Yes. Only one win in our last thirteen away matches against Palace. Benteke got our winner in 2014.

During that spell we did beat Charlton at Selhurst Park once and gained two victories there against Wimbledon, including that famous Dalian goal.

Conversely, we have a fairly decent home record against Palace, we even beat them during our season horribilus.

Jesus Iíve only been to Selhurst twice, I was there for Dalians Goal of the Century and then for Bentekes pick pocket act. I never realised the record was that bad.

On the flip side of that luck Iíve only seen us win once at the Riverside in about 8 trips, a place we regularly seem to smash in 4 goals when I donít go.

Good stat nicked from another forum...

The last Liverpool home league defeat - April '17, v Crystal Palace.

The last Man City home league defeat - December '18, v Crystal Palace.

The last Arsenal home league defeat - April '19, v Crystal Palace.

As hard as it is to break down 9 men behind the ball, Spurs were utter gash today.  No pace or movement, and always trying to get a shot off with a Newcastle player in front of them.  Rubbish.

In fairness it would be some result if Newcastle win at Spurs. And it would superb if Burnley win at Wolves. And as I said yesterday the results this weekend shows just how important our win was on Friday.
I agree TV......we can't rely on other teams results ...who would have put money on Spurs losing at home - it's vital that we beat those who are likely to  be vying with us to stay out of the relegation mix which is why the Bournemouth result was so galling. Home form is going to be key. Any away victories are going to be a big bonus

I have no doubt that an unexpected away win at Spurs will be balanced out by plenty of abject performances home and away. They have Watford up next at home looking for their first points of the season so it wonít be an easy game for Newcastle, and then a very tricky run of fixtures in October and November. Theyíll be in the relegation places for sure...well, there or there abouts.

The difference between our match one and this one was Tootingham were not given a gift. Stats were pretty much even, up to the 70 minute mark, then we gift them the first and the flood gates opened (with other gifts). I reckon if the VAR penalty was given, Spurs would have run out winners again.

For whatever reason Mr L decided to Google Steve Bruce today. He was pretty surprised to discover Bruce is 58 years old, in that he thought he looks/was older than that. Shallow, yes, hey ho. On a serious note though, and hope I'm wrong, he looks like he's on the fast track for ill health (SB that is).

Honestly, there's been a lot of talk about top 3, top 6, best of the rest etc, but the early evidence suggests that on this league there's basically a top 2 and a bottom 18. Obviously I still expect Spurs to do better than, say, Palace, but game to game only Liverpool and City look obviously better than their opponents - everyone else looks like they have a chance.
Title: Re: Other Games - 2019/20
Post by: KRS on August 25, 2019, 10:32:52 PM
Apart from the likes of Man City and Liverpool, itís far too early to tell how the league will shape up after 3 games...you need at least 10-15 games. There are teams that are fast/slow starters, teams bedding in new players, newly promoted teams playing above their level, and teams desperate to get points on the board so there are always a few shock results in the first few weeks (Spurs losing today being a perfect example). Weíll soon start seeing the genuine top 6 contenders emerge, and both the middle and lower tier teams falling away.

Surely that reflects well on Newcastle though?  That they didn't give Spurs any gifts whereas we did.

I was aiming it more at Spurs being the same for both matches at home, 70 odd percent possession in both matches but barely any clean cut chances. When they scored their first against us, that was literally the second shot on target from them. After that the stats skewed mightily in their favour as they gained confidence, we lost ours and we made more mistakes. In this case if the VAR penalty had been given, and I can't see why it wasn't if an accidental handball can now cause one, then I think we would have seen a similar result.

A good defensive display by Brucetoon to be fair, but Spurs looked devoid of attacking ideas and creativity.  Despite constant pressure they got a little lucky against us with a couple of deflections.  That kind of thing didn't fall for them yesterday.  Re the penalty I reckon anywhere else on the pitch a foul is given.

I hope so.

I suppose you have to give him a small amount of credit for the Spurs result, but I'd honestly rather lose as we did having given it a go, than have 9 men behind the ball for 90% of the match.

They've got a little bit more belief than us, and are more physical in midfield. But for all the rambling on about world class players, and minding various gaps, I saw a lot of anti football type long throws (which is always the sign of a team of wankers) and hopeful hoofing.

I don't think they'll be breaking into any top 6's any time soon. I'm sure their fans will console themselves with the road to Gdansk and Champions League football next season. And winning Euro 2020 and Olympic 100m gold in Tokyo next summer.

What do the Wales fans think of Ryan Giggs being in charge after his piss poor attendance record for Wales in international friendlies as a player? I know a lot of it was down to Ferguson but personally I thought Giggs took the piss out of Wales and the Welsh fans. Having said that he has impressed me in his time as Welsh manager. He seems to be getting a tune out of what is a fairly average Welsh squad in general.

Hard to say. I reckon it's better than Portugal 2016, with Ronaldo off injured, Denmark 1992 and, just about, Germany 1996, as well as being about a million times better than Greece 2004.

I'm not counting Spain 2012 as their midfield was so good it made up for the lack of a top striker.

And hoping not good enough v the Villa next Monday !

A half decent team would really have the beating of England here.

What's new?
And current more than decent national teams
Portugal , Belgium, Netherlands, Spain and France would enjoy playing against such defending and a midfield .

The front line attack is quite something however it's not enough to win any Euro Champs.

Hard to say. I reckon it's better than Portugal 2016, with Ronaldo off injured, Denmark 1992 and, just about, Germany 1996, as well as being about a million times better than Greece 2004.

I'm not counting Spain 2012 as their midfield was so good it made up for the lack of a top striker.

Tbh meaning to say that the team as a whole wouldn't be enough to win Euros if persist with a Rice , Barkley , Hendo midfield .
Suspect defense too.

Exciting going forward  none the less

End of the day England have won another game comfortably, are winning the group comfortably and scoring for fun. Saturday's game was barely competitive, tonight's has been a laugh. Yet still people moan and moan. Honestly I don't know what people want from England to not slag them off.

They could get shot of the fuckin' band, that would make watching the national team infinitely more enjoyable.

I don't understand Rice's elevation to the England team.  He's okay but nothing more and is another one who does something good and then follows it with something bad. Henderson I don't get at all, for me he's bang average.  With Ross Barkley who hasn't showed anything of note in the team and against weak opposition. I'd say overall the midfield for England is a worry especially up against decent opposition.

I said exactly the same last night Bren'd...I don't get Barkley at all when Maddison, Mount and maybe in time our Jack could do a real job in that midfield. As for Rice all the Wet Sham season ticket holders in my village are saying what a really good player he is....after successfully breaking up play his passing was particulary poor in my opinion.

I think Jack has his work cut out to make the England team in the near future, when you consider Southgate went with Henderson and Barkley in the attacking midfield role for these games and would still probably call upon Mount, Maddison, Alli, Winks, Oxlade-Chamberlain and Foden before Jack, as things stand.

I know we rightly lambasted Bruce for going into last season with no CB cover, but when you have the finances that most nations on the planet would be jealous it's scandalous that with Laporte gone they have nothing in reserve at that position. And John Stones is utter garbage.

For his third goal he didn't really celebrate because he thought he was offside and that VAR would overturn it. The replay showed that while he had got past his defender, he was behind the ball so onside. He enjoyed it once it was announced that it would stand.

Now, you'll hear everyone say "well Villa aren't pulling up any trees are they?". And they would be right but the crucial difference is that, in the main we have kept our feet on the ground following our promotion. I don't blame some of the Wolves fans for getting a bit carried away, their 7th placed finish wasn't a surprise, they were still on the crest of wave. However, some of the gobbing off was quite ridiculous, veering into fantasy really and for all the hype about being back in Europe, the competition is a dog and I hope we don't get anywhere near it at any stage. I'd rather finish just outside the qualification places if we have a good season, or above them in a Wolves-like fantasy land.

Thursday/Sunday games, interminable group games, and while you may gain access to the CL if you win it, recovering from the effort in doing so might bollocks that campaign up as well.

Howe never really settled at Burnley. I seem to remember he had some family issues and needed to move back down south, and it was in everyone's interests for him to return to Bournemouth when he did. I reckon he'd take a bigger job if it came along now. He's still only about 12.

Re Eddie Howe he truly is a club legend at Bournemouth and can justifiably feel immensely proud of what's he's done there over more than a decade now (Burnley hiatus apart).

I know itís massively obvious but we really do need greater forward options. Weíre not going to get a Harry Kane but we can certainly find our own Pukki type player. Unless Wesley gets up to speed quickly or we find a way to attack as a 4 or 5 man unit in support of him we are going to be under immense pressure to keep the score down. And we are hugely fortunate in that regard to have an outstanding keeper and two brilliant CBís. But it puts us under pressure every game when you can barely score more than once.

The winning goal from Maddison for Leicester is precisely what Jack needs to do. He gets in great positions and he needs to start pulling the trigger. Jack is too hesitant and at PL level everything closes down so much faster. For us to be a threat up front it will all start from midfield and we need our star player to become it at this level.

Absolutely classic Bruce set up.

Brighton at home, 9 deep and one up front, let opposition dictate the game. Newcastle fans not happy. Shame.

If anybody has been playing the Andy Carroll drinking game and taking a swig every time the SKY commentator has mentioned his name they will be falling over drunk by now. I have never known a player not on the pitch get talked about so much.

Todays attendance at Newcastle is their lowest in the league in nine years. The stayaways aren't missing much.

Andy Carroll coming on for the last ten minutes.

Villa are a better side than Newcastle and Brighton.

Not sure I agree, Brucecastle have got a decent squad with lots of PL experience, they just have a shit manager.
Brighton are another Bournemouth,well organized and physicaly strong.
We have not shown enough to make that statement.

He's doing a great job.

Was very complimentary of us in the play off final coverage, too. I hope he continues to do well.
