  1. Re: Fed Up With Glory Supporters! For me, football is about moments. I love that I was there to see the Albion lift our first divisional trophy in donkeys years and a ton of other similar stuff. But equally I've got cracking memories from the day we got promoted for the first time in 20-odd years, when I was just down the pub with mates, just like anyone else who couldn't be there has. I'm sure the people who were there for Utd's ridiculous CL win over Bayern will remember it as long as they live, but people who watched it on the box or at a pub or whatever will make their own memories. I'm just amazed at the snobbery some people have about it. It's not how you stumbled across the club, it's as you alluded to how much you care.

  4. Re: English Championship 106 - Transfer/Gossip thread I wouldn't Sell em a Virus Blackburn manager Akash labeled Liverpool manager Tom Field a joke and claimed he wouldn't sell him a virus. "If he thinks he can sign Lassana Diarra after he pulls of a stunt like this then hes in dreamland. On second thoughts I might sell him Diarra in exchange for Essien. And it's quite clear to everyone with a brain that Tom is feeling the strains of managing such a big club. He had enough games in which to keep them up but his inept approach relegated Liverpool. In fact I'm surprised hes still in the job. Obviously the Liverpool owners see something in him that none of us do. His poor transfer policy has left them with no depth and I can see Liverpool finishing comfortably in midtable."

  5. Re: Bundesliga Analysis & Predictions 2008/2009 Yes' date=' he is a regular, and he's already an important player in the Stuttgart squad. Many Stuttgart fans rate him as highly as Hitzelsperger, some even above him. They form a very solid partnership in front of their defense, keeping away a lot of trouble for them. Offensively, he's even a bit more dangerous than his partner. He's now also been capped for Germany, after injuries and important games for the youth teams (e.g. the U21-Euros) delayed his debut. Last time I talked about him I wasn't convinced he'd get a rise, but so far this season, he has impressed, and a rise is becoming more likely the more I think about him. Both are good and definitely talented, but I don't see them getting regular games at their respective clubs for now. Sven at Dortmund has Kehl, who definitely plays when fit, Tinga, Hummels, Feulner and Sahin ahead of him, who all play/can play in his position, and is playing for the reserves in the 3. Liga currently. Lars, who moved to Leverkusen today already, probably won't play much as well as Rolfes, Vidal and maybe even Reinartz are preferred over him in the DM position. They seemed like must-buys a year ago, but for now, I rather see them dropping than rising tbh, but long-term, I'm still convinced that they can hit 90+ some day.

  6. Re: English Championship 106 - Transfer/Gossip thread OXFORD UTD 2-1 QPR Oxford Utd entertained QPR here today at the Kassam Stadium on their home return to the Third Division, and they didn't disappoint their fans with an awesome display against a stronger QPR side. On their opening two matches of the new season, a league fixture and a friendly against Crewe Alexandra, they gave up an early goal in both games but today it was Oxford Utd's turn to hit the net early with a superb strike from Reinaldo in the 7th minute to set the home team on their way to victory. 1-0 Darel Russell was once again instrumental in the heart of the Oxford Utd midfield and orchestrated the game from the outset with a display of sheer genius which resulted in him being named man of the match. Tomasz Hajto marshalled the home defence effectively but once again his wild side came through and he was booked in the 28th minute for dangerous play. Both teams probed for an opening but just as the first half was winding down, Nicolas Lodeiro went close for Oxford Utd with a header in the 40th minute, before Santos Weldon side stepped his marker to curve a beautiful shot from all of 25 yards into the QPR net in the 42nd minute to put Oxford Utd 2-0 up at half time. HT 2-0. Reinaldo picked up the second yellow card of the match for violent conduct just after the break and Oxford Utd manager David Belkevitz wisely substituted the striker for Gary Glen in the 60th minute, along with man of the match Darel Russell, no doubt to protect his star midfielder, Matthew Spring was the replacement. Andy Reid struck in the 63rd minute as Oxford Utd tried to re adjust their formation after the double substitution, much to the delight of the travelling fans. 2-1. Oxford Utd were not about to capitulate and pushed forward in an attempt to put the game out of reach for the visitors. Full back Edgar and Weldon both going close. Oxford Utd looked comfortable at the back and looked the more likely team to score as they ran out 2-1 winners in a hard fought match. FT 2-1. The Oxford Utd manager was on hand to talk with an SM reporter after the match saying, " This was a great result today for us. We knew QPR had a strong squad and used a mixture of caution and power to try and un-nerve them, and I think we succeeded in breaking up the play and not allowing them a foothold in the game. Really pleased with the whole team performance, especially Weldon and Reinaldo up front, both getting on the scoresheet and special praise to Darel Russell who was outstanding today."

  14. Re: English Championship 3951 - Transfer/Gossip thread Guti saves Villa with last gasp strike Tonight, Rhys Hunt took charge ofhis first Premiership game with Aston Villa when they came up against Portsmouth at Fratton Park. This was always going to be a tough game for Hunt and Villa as they came up against a fairly strong Portsmouth team and their experienced French manager Bail Gaudin. 1-1 Aston Villa created the first chance of the game when Agbonlahor made English veteran keeper, David James pull off a smart save. Portsmouth Belgian striker, Moussa Dembele threatened the Villa goal on numerous occasions and that finally paid off when on the 16th minute, Dembele rounds Brad Friedel and slides the ball into the empty net to make it 1-0 to Portsmouth. The game was fairly even all the way up to half-time but there wasn't another goal. At half-time the score was Portsmouth 1-0 Aston Villa. Portsmouth started the second-half the best with Brad Friedel being sprung into action on numerous occasions to prevent a Portsmouth second goal. Villa's young striker Nathan Delfouneso and Spanish winger Luis Garcia came closest to getting the equaliser for Aston Villa. Villa were piling on the pressure onto the Portsmouth defence and it was getting late to bag a goal, but in the 89th minute, Villa captain, Jose Maria Guti capatilised on a poor back pass to slot home to make it 1-1 and Hunt followed suit of Jose Mourinho's celebration running down the touchline to celebrate with his players, the Portsmouth bench were heartbroken. At the full-time whistle the score was Portsmouth 1-1 Aston Villa. Aston Villa had much more possesion than Portsmouth but they dominated with attempts on goal but it was a very fiercely contested match with both sides going for the win. Aston Villa manager Rhys Hunt spoke to SMTV after the game and had this to say: "We didnt give up and the lads deserve credit for that". Villa's next game comes against Liverpool at Villa Park, which is sure to be a very tough game for Hunts men. Guti (left) bagged a last minute equaliser tonight for Villa

  16. Re: Players already potentially looking for a rise in England Very good thread mate. Nice to see some players outside the premier league mentioned for a change!! With regards to Peter Hartley he started all first team friendlies for Hartlepool and has slotted in at left back for the first 4 games (playing very well against Coventry in the CC win). With no other left backs in our squad 75/76 should easily be achieved.

  24. Re: Gold Championship 4 Transfers / Match reports Thread Harvey Prepares For 50th Game In Charge Of The Mariners! vs Tonight, Jack Harvey will take charge of his 50th game for the Mariners as they host Crystal Palace at Blundell Park. Grimsby's second longest manager has already taken them up from Division 3 to Division 2, and as things stand they could well be in with a shout of a dream promotion to the Premier League. Tonight's opponents, Crystal Palace, are one place above Grimsby on goal difference alone, and a win tonight for the home side could see them go as high as 1st depending on other results. Grimsby have lost just one in fourteen games, the loss coming away at Fulham a week ago. After Saturday's 4-0 demolition of Nottingham Forest, confidence is high in the Grimsby camp and Harvey's side fear nobody in their current form. Crystal Palace hosted the Mariners earlier on in the season and won 1-0, but Harvey says his men are now a much better team and have got used to life in the Coca Cola Championship. When asked if he thought Grimsby had a realistic chance of promotion, Harvey said "I don't see why not. If we keep playing like we have been doing then we have a good chance. We're under no illusions and we know how difficult this league is to get out of, never mind how difficult the premier league would be." Grimsby's first promotion came five seasons ago under Nathaniel Wimbledon, when they won Division 4. Grimsby then had trouble escaping from the third tier of English football, and neither Wimbledon nor Oliver Snell could manage it. Harvey came in early in the season, and took the Mariners from mid-table mediocrity to 2nd place, a position they achieved by the skin of their teeth on the last game of the season, thanks to two of their other rivals slipping up. Grimsby never looked back from there and have come on leaps and bounds, adding some youth to the squad as well as valuable experience. UP THE MARINERS!

Re: World Championship 6592 Real Madrid News World Championship 6592 After completing the signings of Cristiano Ronaldo, Kaka, Karim Benzema, Raul Albiol, Xabi Alonso, Alvaro Arbeloa, Alexandre Pato & Franck Ribery you would of thought that would of been it for Madrid this summer. But how wrong you'd be. In the past few moment Real Madrid have confirmed another signing; Italian international centre back Giorgio Chiellini from Juventus. Chiellini signs for a fee of £20m with Alvaro Negredo going in the opposite direction and it is likely that Chiellini will go straight into the team for tonights game against Sevilla. Both Franck Ribery and now Giorgio will now be introduced to fans before the game tonight. Giorgio told the clubs website: "Sono felice oltre le parole. Questo è un movimento che ho sognato di poiché ero bambino. Sebbene amo Juventus e la città di Torino non potrei rifiutare appena questo movimento. Sono felice di gareggiare per il mio luogo nel lato e non vedo l'ora di Madrid di helpng domina il mondo di football."

  31. Re: Searching for a talented CB Hi Tim, For once I agree Ivanovic is a good shout, albeit a RB/CB on SM at present. I think Vermaelen will rise faster this season, and I could imagine a rise to 90 if Arsenal have a great season in the EPL and CL. Johnny Evans would be another good prospect, although he's only 87 and therefore unlikley to rise above 89 for now, I really like the way he plays. With Rio and Vidic injured quite often in preseason, I'm expecting the young irishman to get plenty of opportunities and minutes on the pitch. Stay away from Agger, although a good talent his constant back injuries are really beginning to worry me. Herby

  40. Re: East Anglia - Transfer/Match Reports Thread Division 1 Match Result Sunday 16th August 2009 Carrow Road (24,287 Attendance) Referee: Philippe Kalt Norwich City 0-1 Watford Giovinco (80) Sebastien Giovinco, celebrating the lone goal that gained Watford an important 3-points at Carrow Road. This game proved to be an enormous game for Chris Benton's Watford, as they managed to beat the league leaders, away from home and keep a clean sheet... which ticked all of Chris Benton's boxes. The game started off lively for Watford, with Edinaldo Grafite getting a chance to score straight away, but failing to capitalise. It then got equal between the sides as both players found themselves in great positions, and both goalkeepers having to work to keep their team in it. However, the half time whistle blew at a stalemate. The 2nd half picked up exactly from where the game left off, with both teams getting plenty of goal-scoring oppertunities. Norwich City keeper Edwin Van Der Sar made several top-class saves to keep his side on level-par with Watford. However, their luck fell short on the 80th minute, when Sebastien Giovinco was aloud far too much space by the Norwich defence and made no mistake by slotting it home from 10 yards out to put Watford 1-0 up. After the goal the game died down, which meant the final whistle blew at 1-0 Watford, a tremendous upset for the Norwich team and fans. Norwich City Starting XI (Formation 4-4-2)Van Der Sar Helveg --- Bordon --- Doherty --- Roberto Carlos Daley --- Gill --- Fotheringham --- Ze Roberto Cort --- Heskey Watford Starting XI (Formation 4-2-2-2) Loach Luizinho --- Welton Felipe --- Sakho --- Braafheid Motta ---- Airton Wilshere ------------ Giovinco Berg --- Grafite Transfer News "Out With The Old... In With The New!" The Old Scott Loach, latest player to leave Watford in Chris Benton's "make-over" of the club. Scott Loach has departed Watford, for a sum of £3.5M. Watford manager Chris Benton said he "had another player in mind" so therefore was willing to let Loach go. The New Shuichi Gonda, Benton's replacement for the departing Scott Loach. Shuichi Gonda, arrived at Vicarage Road immediately after Scott Loach's departure as an instant replacement. The player arrived from FC Tokyo for a fee of £1.4M and Right Back Gavin Hoyte will be joining Tokyo as part of the deal, due to not being included in Benton's plans for the club. Mysterious Arrival! Watford manager Chris Benton has also stated that there has been another bid accepted for a player which he did not state, and is only hours away from completion. However he did state that the fee accepted was in a region of £5M to £6M. It also includes Watford youngster Jordan Parkes departing Watford. More will be revealed in the next few hours.
