Okay, maybe the United-Gooners match wasn't to your liking, but you simply must repeatedly put your hands together for the way Manchester City was defeated at the Stadium of Light today! This Sunderland side reminds me of Wolverhampton from a few years ago; they were strictly bottom-dwellers but nevertheless fought hard in nearly every single match. As for City, they should have saved a couple of goals for this week, the chumps!

good on sunderland, jim, but those mutineering gutless slags in their dressing room needed to give some effort back to their fans at some point. Theyve gone missing most of the season for the old manager and interim one apart from newcastl game. Never saw it but heard they played well, although city without Silva and kompany denies them their rudder and their heart.

Better reply before the usual deluge of d the m topics come flooding forth...

Sunderland have played hard in every match I've seen them in this season so I have to disagree with you there, Bill. Di Canio was a managerial train wreck, though I loved watching/listening to the guy. He also wore a suit well; even when he wasn't sliding on his knees in one. big grin They have some players of real quality, too. (Altidore, Fletcher, Giaccherini; two of whom didn't play today).

As for the Arsenal match, did you see your all-time favorite Nicklas Bendtner with his pretty chignon hairdo? He had a couple of chances to equalize for the Gunners, but chose to under perform, as usual. It's always strange to see him among the "new" face of the team. I don't think Arsenal have won anything during the entire time he's been there (or on loan, for that matter).

i saw the bendtner miss!! classic. No change there.

di canio is di canio - they knew what they were getting when they brought him in.
Scary for me is that half the dressing room who gave up were players he brought in!

Zlatan 2 Ronaldo 3.

Great game. Ronaldo never ceases to amaze me. Incredible player (and that's from a Liverpool Supporter).

It amuses me to watch Ronaldo and then see the English Media get excited by Andros Townsend. Standards.

I thoroughly enjoyed Sweden-Portugal. Love the touch Ronaldo had on the second goal, righting the ball with his thigh and setting up his strike. The first strike was power incarnate. wink Has Lionel Messi ever come to the aid of his country's football team like this? Nope.

Both matches (France-Ukraine) were excellent. Glad to see Les Bleus in, as well.

Do any of you football/film music geniuses know which piece of music plays over this Shakespeare thing by Brian Blessed from the Beeb's 2010 World Cup coverage? The music begins at 0:27:



I'll bump an unloved thread on the other side if none of you boys know the answer. smile

ooh lets see? ethnic heavy drums?? relentless string repetition?? Lets narrow it down.
Something by Zimmer in the last ten years or one of the many copycats, of which that is too many to list.

as for the football, we have a thread which didnt even mention eng v germany result!!
i was in italy for 2 days so came back without knowing how their B team fared against our A team.
Italian tv was full of the sardinia floods.

as for this weekend, lets get our chelsea defeat out of the way quick and plunge headlong into the bottom 3.
A disasterous season made of our own blunders. We are less likely to score than Tall Guy at a single lapdancing dwarves convention.

Disappointed we let a lead slip twice, Bill. Not to worry, Brendy says it was a 'wonderful', 'heart stopper' game. That Toffee chap should have been sent off, and Joe Allen is a waste of space. The Welsh Xavi, according to Brendy. Calm down now.

Start blowing bubbles...

Week Twelve November 22-23, 2013

Everton 3 Liverpool 3- The Battle of the Setpieces ends in a draw as The Reds strike late courtesy of a Daniel "I Body Pop for Thomas and Kv" Sturridge.

West Ham 0 Chelsea 3- Frank Lampard scores twice--and kisses the Chelsea shield on his shirt in a symbolic backhand to his former side as The Blues roll 0-3. Tepid play from The Hammers--I watched this one--and the supporters let them know how bad they were with all the booing. West Ham had no energy. No passing and seemingly no game plan other than two throw in two subs before the half. The Aussie broadcasters I listened to on this depressed the hell out of me. Does Australia have a sizable West Ham supporter contingent?

English Championship

Leeds 2 Middlesbrough- The Ross McCormack Show goes into its third BIG week as he scores yet again. TG, you'll have to send me a Ross McCormack Leeds United shirt. Leeds moves to sixth in the table!

Should Cardiff defeat Manchester United tomorrow they shall receive the "Who Dares Wins" award.

Funny, but I did once go out with an unfeasibly short girl. I was nuts over her.

Back to proper footie this weekend, as I remarked to our old friend Oblicno. No matter that England tried to experiment and got beaten twice in a row at home for the first time since the 70s. No matter that the England rugby league team were seconds away from a world-shattering (in context) win over the Kiwis in the RLWC semi but lost as a direct result of a silly neck-high tackle. No matter that the England cricket team got their bails handed to them in the first test by the Aussies - whose manager, by the way, deserves to win the Ashes just for the nature of his character. The fact is, Leeds got three points so all the above matter not a jot.

I really enjoyed the Mersey Derby, which was unusual as they are usually terrible games with bad fouls, nervous players, too much tension and no quality football.
This one was different, with both managers favouring a more attractive passing style and willingness to create and attack. It ebbed and flowed like a Cup tie and had lots of incident and chances. The one nasty moment was the very bad challenge on Suarez by Mirrallas which should have been a sending off. I'm not going to say we would have won the game if that had happened, cos we didn't beat Newcastle a few weeks ago when they had a player sent off, but there's always that doubt and consideration.
I'm enjoying the season so far and it's good to see LFC at least back in the mix of things and if we are there or thereabouts come April, I will be one happy Kopite!
Things don't look so good for your Hammers Bill. If Sunderland and Crystal Palace start picking up points with their new managers in the coming months, you could be doomed frown
Meanwhile, Leeds look to be getting stronger and are now in the play-offs, so who knows what could happen there. Leeds back in the Prem..imagine that wink

Yeah -imagine that!

I saw the last part of the Merseyside derby, Kev - the part I saw was spectacular, and it sounds as if it was like that from start to finish. I'm afraid I can't agree about Suarez, though. I think he dived. wink

as you may recall i said we would be in bottom 3 weeks ago.
we are just awful.
no strikers and fat sam continues with this mad 6 man midfield system which even the players seem to be totally destroyed by. Ive played football and there is nothing more soul destroying than seeing all your hardwork get wasted coz the wanker up front is useless and chances go begging until in the end you lose heart.
How much worse must it be when you have no striker and when you bring on your strikers they are worse than no strikers.
Yep plenty of booing, always a contentious subject but if you pay good money to watch cack you are entitled to tell manager and owners what you think.
Equally upsetting is that all of this mess is self inflicted from mad club decisions.


Pleased to see tottscum lose to city by 3 more goals than west ham did!!

Terrific.

good result for cardiff. They deserve jims Roy budd award.

Ryan Giggs turns 40 today.

He's a role model for the Man Utd players, apparently. However, no mention of his affairs with that Welsh TV babe and his sister in law, or of that court injunction he took out. Classy...

Actually, Aston Villa would be more deserving since they pulled back level away at The Hawthornes this Monday after conceding two goals in the opening ten minutes. Exciting match that was. Still, no one receives my "prestigious" award for week twelve. smile

...and for God's sake Bill, will your side please beat Fulham this week?

we have two 6 pointers this week, palace tuesday. doubt we will get any points!

if you are martin jol and u needa team to play tosave your job - nobody better than the worst west ham team since the last one that went down.
we look like a team that has lost hope and doesnt believe inthe mad system fat sam playing.
I think the fans have had enough of his over indulgence of nolan, who has done nuffin this term and serves no purpose when he doesnt have someone else ahead of him creating scraps.
And worse, carlton cole is back. the tree.
