>>>>>Even if it were truly accidental, he should have refrained from kissing his hand in the celebration, That was just crass>>>>>>

To be fair to the little cheat, he always kisses his wrist when he celebrates a goal, so I don't think that was done in any kind of tribute.

Bradford humble Aston Villa at the half-way stage of the Capital One Cup!!
90 minutes and a 2 goal cushion away from Wembley!
It would be great if they make it, unless you're a Villa fan wink

A fellow Brit who works for the same company as me, is a Villa fan. He says after this performance, they are a disgrace to the Midlands.
He’s not far wrong.

I've just seen the winning goal by Suarez on the news and that was dodgy! Looks like loads more bad press for our little saviour smile

Suarez will be getting a call from Thierry Henry to join his volleyball team...

Apparently the ref saw it but judged it accidental. Less embarrassing, I suppose, than admitting that none of the three officials saw it when everyone else in the ground did.

Even if it were truly accidental, he should have refrained from kissing his hand in the celebration, That was just crass.

And still not as bad as that cheating toe rag Henry.


I've seen it a few times, & it looks like the ugly little cheat taps it in with his hand, & even if the ref saw it & judged it accidental, as I understand it, a team shouldn't gain an advantage from an accidental hand ball, so the goal shouldn't have stood. I don't think the ref did see it. Football, there's just too much money tied up in it now for it to be just a game anymore.

Man Utd playing liverpool and this thread is floundering on page two!!!

If theres snow, no access to computer for a few days.

I think this thread is only being played by 5 or 6 people now!
Even Jim P has started to cut-down his posts about our beloved footie and he started it!!
It's generally a 4 way split between me and Thomas (The Red Men), T-Leeds-G and Bill de ammer! + a few passers-by. I'm amazed there are no Man U supporters around here (as they bloody pop up everywhere else!!).

I was away again this weekend (Llandudno this time) and once again missed the Reds game. I'll try and watch the highlights on MOTD2 tonight but it's hard when the mancs have beaten us frown

On the Suarez situation, obviously I think the guy is a Messi-like genius who is being unfairly vilified for doing things EVERY OTHER footballer has done or is doing.
I read an interesting piece in some newspaper highlighting the things he's done which have been unbelievably over egged and written about, while similar misdemeanours by Messi (punching the ball into the net against Espanyol and wheeling away in jubilation while the entire opposing team screamed for justice), Gareth Bale (being constantly booked for diving/simulation) and John Terry (a far bigger rascist bigot than Suarez could ever be) are allowed to settle down and blow away. Obviously I have some bias in his favour, but I do think his fantastic talent is being overshadowed by over amping things many others do and have done.

Pretty disappointed with the Liverpool performance on Sunday. Seemed to be content to stand off and defend deep in the first half, inviting the Mancs to attack them. Not sure about that tactic, I would have thought it would be just as easy to have a go against their dodgy defence. Rodgers decided to do that in the second half, by bringing Sturridge and Borini on. Too little too late unfortunately. I like the idea of playing a possession based game, but the results are going to have to start coming. Hard to believe we haven't beaten a time in the top half of the table!

Can anyone tell me the point of Wee Joe Allen? He was bloody awful, and just doesnt look up to it for me. He's supposed to link defence with midfield, but most of the time he just seems to be wandering around hardly passing the ball forward at all!!

I think patience is the key word at Anfield now.
I agree with some of your points about recent tactics and teams Thomas (Allen is beginning to look like he's not good enough, but I don't like jumping to rash conclusions about players after the turnaround that Lucas Leiva did a season or two ago) but we have to give Rodgers time to implement his ideas and really format his team. I'm sick of knee-jerk reactions and quick-fix solutions to our problems. We must never forget Fergie was a few games away from the bullet at Man Utd after a few seasons of misfires, before he got lucky with a cup win and the rest really is, as they say, history! frown

I wish oblicno was still lurking around here, his mighty Bolton Wanderers have just caused a big upset in the FA Cup tonight.

Hope your lot do some damage at the Theatre of Screams tomorrow night Bill. I could do with cheering up, footie-wise.

Oh, and well done TG, good comeback tonight and onto the next round int'cup! smile

Jim Phelps, have you given up on The Beautiful Game? wink

Thanks, Kevin - wonders never cease!

Your theory about Mr Suarez mirrors how I feel about the old tag of "Dirty Leeds". We were no angels but no worse than most other top teams of the day. What singled us out is that Revie was so far ahead of his time that it attracted ridicule. Dossiers, diet. Taking the ball into the corner when winning with five minutes to go. All stuff that even lower tier teams do now. And we were bloody good - most of the time!

I hear a lot about Liverpool at work - my Wakefield desk is inconsiderately near two scousers...

Not looking forward to game tonight.
Humiliation on prime time telly!!!

Perhaps TG, Kev, Thomas (even Jimbo) if your watching, could you keep count how many times Joe Cole's opposite number arrives unmarked in the box to cause problems and in the corner of your screen Cole is either jogging back oblivious to the danger or standing with his hands on his hips on the halfway line - and also how many times gentle giant Carlton "blancmange" Cole gets beaten to a good cross or pass because he hasnt got the sense to get the correct side of the midget defender marking him.

Muggings, murders, slaughterings, outrageous liberties in a public fareway...And I thought Ripper street was grim viewing.....

With any luck you'll be here tomorrow marvelling at how many times Joe Cole cleared off his own line...

And you can take some heart from the fact that the supporters of 91 English teams want you to win.

To be honest TG, with injuries already and first-eleven not available, we are weak in several positions, and because of that we are on the cusp of problems and getting sucked into the bottom 5 or 6, especially with QPR Reading Wigan, Sunderland, Newcastle all still in there fighting and nicking the odd win so the last thing we could do with is energy sapping cup games and more injuries.

Happy to go out with pride intact by 1 goal but just coulda done without a replay. And a morale crushing 4 or 5 nil.

They may surprise me - but I doubt it!

Add edit. dreary game. 1-0. United looked like they all had money on a 1-0 win as Rooney missed a penalty and they skied all their chances!
At least we're out of both cups!!! no more distractions and no more excuses.

Decent weekend for our boys! I wish we could play Norwich every week smile

Sturridge seems to have made an immediate impact and taken some of the pressure off Suarez. I just wish we hadn't been so stand-offish for the first hour last week at Mould Trafford. The last half hour was too-little, too late frown

I also think the return of Lucas Leiva has helped the team click together a bit more. He certainly helps Gerrard step up a few notches.
After Suarez's foolish public admission this week about his diving in a game earlier in the season, I honestly think he loves the attention and bad press now and promotes it!

...and then waste a spot in european competition next year and come home after their first match against the second best team in cyprus!! ha ha.

yeah let em enjoy their day in the sun!

Suspect, as you say, the arrival of Sturridge and the return of Lucas could be a bit of a turning point for you, kev and thomas.
dont get me wrong, youre still shite (not as total shite as the hammers obviously) but you might just be battling for 5th place with everton and arsenal.

Hammers go to highbury tonight. groan.

wont be pretty.

Will be expecting some poor marking as usual, and, like last time, stupidly stepping up in a schoolboy attempt to play off-side at the wrong time allowing a full-speed walcott to run through un-opposed and look like England material.

And if Joe cole or Tomkins is trying to track him, he will probably get a hat-trick.

Meanwhile, up front, the tree from Lord of the rings misses chance after chance or lumbers about not really close to getting near anything played up to him.

But then I think Sam is wise to how rubbish Carlton Cole is and may play Chamahk against his old club instead. (oops, he cant play due to terms of his loan - damn!)

Get well soon andy carroll.

5-1. oops.

We were all over the place. Defenders jogging about, bit of token jockeying, running in different directions but not actually doing much.

Thought the days of giving up mid-match and complete capitulation were over under Allardyce.

When we are bad, we're shocking.

Good to see your Hammers didn't let you down on your prediction last night, Billwink

How about Eden Hazard assaulting that ballboy in the League Cup Semi! Silly thing to do, but the ballboy didn't help himself, wasting time and falling on the ball. And he's 17 apparently!!

Still, he was unfortunate it wasn't Torres, he probably would have missed himsmile

Also, what is Alain Pardieu doing at Newchateaux? 4 more Frenchmen expected to sign this month? That brings to about 10 French players they have signed in the past 18 months! Do they not have scouts in any other countries?!!

Sorry about the drubbing at the new library, Bill.

Delighted for Bradford City, and glad that Swansea made it through as it gives my near neighbours a chance to win their first cup since 1911! (Not sure if the West Riding Cup counts, nor even if Leeds ever let them win it!)

As for that ridiculous matter with Hazard and the ballboy, the whole thing smells very badly. The boy - and what's he doing in that capacity at his age? - apparently tweeted his intention to delay play whenever possible. He then took a dive and lay on the ball, which would have earned a yellow card if he were a player. Hazard at that point should have brought it to the ref's attention, who would have added 30 seconds on at the end, as is customary. Instead - and under the circumstances, I'd probably have done the same - he tried to kick the ball out, making no contact as far as I could see with the lad, who then started to roll around as if shot.

Apportioning blame: ballboy 90%, Hazard 10%; Rescind the red card, ban the kid from that job and move on.

Hazard should never have been booked and sent off....the ball boy was clearly a MILE Offside ! big grin

I've only just found out about the result, which makes me happy as I don't like Chelsea, but I am on Hazard's side, that silly little sod asked for it, & it looks like he's been studing the way footballers act after the slightest foul, the way he was rolling around in agony smile
