    The Politics Thread

    Re: The Politics Thread Interesting points and whilst I would not disagree that the church has been very influential in the early development particularly of social norms and acceptable behaviours, I believe their purpose in shaping the morals and behaviour of future generations has ran its course. We are (seemingly) an educated society, we know and understand the rights and wrongs of life and how to live as a good human. Whilst I admit the church played a role in the initial development of what it takes to be a good person, parents, the education system and our society should and i believe generally are taking responsibility for raising what I deem a morally founded "good person". The Church does fantastic work with charitable causes no doubting that, but I believe religion to be so utterly corrupt and suppressive from its very source that no matter what good it may do I disagree with the concept of it. I dont expect anything from the church, they make continue to keep outdated opinions and views that were conceived in medieval times. I just dont take any notice of them. My original post was more of a statement how i believe the church is now redundant or could be made redundant when it comes to developing or promoting good values, morals etc. You dont need the church for that. If anything all the church does is scare you into being a good person

  4. Re: English Championship 7046 Discussion Thread Superb win tonight but the result is soured with the news of injuries to two key men. Andrey Arshavin and Maxi Lopez both look set to miss the remainder of the season. A real body blow as we enter the run in.

  6. Re: English Championship 7046 Discussion Thread Doncaster Rovers 0-3 Brighton & Hove Albion A Bacca brace and A rare Basta goal see my seagulls grab three points against a side currently in the play offs. Bacca has been on fire since joining with 12 goals and 3 assists hopefully he can keep up this form until the end of the season and we can push on towards the top half maybe even the play offs with 10 to play we only need to make up 10 points so you can never say never

    Official Arsenal Thread

    Re: Official Arsenal Thread I would be happy with Wenger spending +20 million for him. But I would certainly not want to lose Chambo, not even in a straight swap. I love the kid, he's got the potential to be one of England's best players, he's got all the attributes and he's developing nicely.

    The Little League

    Re: The Little League So, an incredible first season will come to an end on Thursday and there's still 3 sides in with a chance of becoming The Little League's first title winners. Any predictions on who's gonna come out on top? To help you decide, here's a few interesting stats on the 3 clubs. Barcelona -Despite the Nou Camp being one of the most feared grounds to visit in world football, The Catalan giants have won just half of their league matches at home this term averaging just over 1.5 goals a match there. -Barca are currently unbeaten in 4 games, picking up 10 points in the process. -They go into the game with a full squad to choose from, including Lionel Messi, who has been directly involved in 41% of his sides goals this season. -Barca beat Chelsea 3-1 at Stamford bridge earlier on this season. Chelsea -Chelsea have won 10 out of their 12 away games thus far, comfortably the best away record in the set-up. -Currently unbeaten in 5 games, winning 4 of those. -Hazard and RVP have been involved directly in 35 of Chelsea's goals this season combined. -David Luiz will miss the final game through injury. AC Milan -Need Barcelona to lose or draw to be in with a chance at the title. -Won 4 of their last 6 games. -They beat Arsenal 2-1 earlier this season. -Sergio Busquets has been directly involved in 20 of his sides goals this season yet 2 players have been involved in more (Eto'o and Villa). So.....who's it gonna be? Will be a predictions competition up for the final day by the way guys so get over there and win yourself some credits (it'll be up later).

  23. Re: Premier League Discussion Thread You had the momentum because we were playing on the counter. For the first time in yonks, we've got a robust enough defence to do that. You created nothing and frankly that's the end of it. What we did to you was what Ferguson had been doing to us. Most of the ball but nothing dangerous and hit em on the break.

  24. Re: Official Manchester City Thread I guess he could play the role that Silva's been playing thus far or as the deeper forward. Neither suit him perfectly though. Think we'd be better doing: Toure - Fern Navas - Silva - Jovetic Aguero Kun can always take an AM spot to allow Edin or Negredo to come in and we have plenty of other AM replacements too.

  27. Re: Official Manchester City Thread Even the United fans that I know thinks Moyes had turned United's transfer market in to a joke. He had no clue what players to buy at that level and in the end just resigned to signing 'Everton standard' players. Fellaini is a good player for a mid table team. He isn't the signing United needed. I'll take Fernandinho, Jesus Navas, Negredo, Jovetic and Demichelis over Fellaini any day.

  28. Re: Premier League Discussion Thread RE - Kirky, I agree about the mourinho factor and ever since he was appointed i predicted Chelsea will win the league and probably more, I disagree about bayern being the best in the world now though. Bayern are playing pretty nice football but not as good as last season Pep has changed it and they don't look as good, It will be all be about Chelsea this year me thinks.

  49. Re: English Championship 7777 - Discussion Thread GILLETTE SOCCER SATURDAY TURN10 - PREMIER LEAGUE Welcome to our first special addition of "Gillette Soccer Saturday", this will happen on some different occasions throughout the season giving a full report on how all of the clubs have performed throughout the day. We are presenting coverage from all 10 matches in Turn 10 in the Barclays Premier League. The main team of presenters are all here to give full commentary on how the games are going, they include in the studio: Charlie Nicholas, Matt Le Tissier, Paul Merson and Phil Thompson. And, around the other grounds in England for the Division 1 matches include: Bianca Westwood, Kammy, John Salako and Iain Dowie. All ten games can have factors which affect teams at the top and bottom of the table. Show Introduction Stelling: Welcome, there are some cracking games on offer today in the Barclays Premier League, all of which could have major effects at the top and bottom of the league. We have all the goal updates as they come in. Currently at the top of the table sees Plymouth going strong leading the chase ahead of Liverpool and Tottenham. Middlesbrough also are in 4th position and take the final Champions League place. But, struggling at the bottom of the table is North-West side Preston North End and are surrounded in the relegation places currently by Shorpe and Nottm Forest with Aston Villa just hovering over the relegation position. Here are the fixtures for the day... Presenters covering each game: Charlie Nicholas - Manchester United vs Everton Matt Le Tissier - Nottm Forest vs Manchester City Phil Thompson - Tottenham vs Leeds United Paul Merson - Aston Villa vs Plymouth Iain Dowie - West Brom vs Shorpe Bianca Westwood - West Ham vs C.Palace John Salako - Liverpool vs Preston Chris Kamara - Arsenal vs Sunderland Tony Cottee - Middlesborough vs Blackpool David Craig - Colchester vs Sheffield United Charlie Nicholas: Manchester United (14th) vs Everton (4th) This game has the potential to be a cracker, Manchester United have started the season poorly while Everton have surprised many as they have shot into the Champions League places and games like these tonight will really prove whether they are worth the money. Rick will venture into his 300th game as manager of Manchester United and will hope to pick up a big win at the Theatre Of Dreams. Success is the key for big teams like Manchester United but they will need big players like Gareth Bale, Rooney and Ibrahimovic will need to perform. SUPER 6 PREDICTIONS: Phil Thompson - M.United 2-0 Everton Paul Merson - M.United 3-1 Everton Matt Le Tissier - M.United 0-1 Everton Charlie Nicholas - M.United 1-2 Everton Jeff Stelling - M.United 3-0 Everton Matt Le Tissier: Nottm Forest (18th) vs Manchester City (12th) Nottingham Forest have had a slow start to the season, towards the end of last season Nottingham Forest were involved in a relegation battle and were hoping that they could start the season brightly and challenge for a Top 10 position but again they have found themselves in and around the relegtion positions unlike there Mancunian opponents who are currently 12 in the league but have been involved in a poor run of form only picking up 3 points out of a possible 18 points. Although on paper the results haven't been stellar for either side, there is the possibility that it could be a cracking game. SUPER 6 PREDICTIONS: Phil Thompson - Nottm Forest 0-1 Man City Paul Merson - Nottm Forest 2-0 Man City Matt Le Tissier - Nottm Forest 0-0 Man City Charlie Nicholas - Nottm Forest 1-1 Man City Jeff Stelling - Nottm Forest 0-1 Man City Phil Thompson: Tottenham (2nd) vs Leeds United (10th) Tottenham are expected to pick up a consecutive victory tonight against Leeds United and challenge for the top spot. You look at the performances from Tottenham and they have been fantastic and it will be a shock if they cannot emulate some of those performances into todays game and win the game against Leeds easily... (Paul Merson during this preview, described these comments about Leeds as "harsh", Phil reacted to this by saying..) I personally think Leeds will have to get there tactics spot on to pick a victory. Benzema for Tottenham has been in sublime form and he should pick up his 10th goal in the league today, under the belief that he starts. But, in fairness to Leeds they have performed well this year and with a few victories they can easily find themselves up there with some of the best. SUPER 6 PREDICTIONS: Phil Thompson - Tottenham 3-0 Leeds Paul Merson - Tottenham 1-0 Leeds Matt Le Tissier - Tottenham 2-1 Leeds Charlie Nicholas - Tottenham 1-1 Leeds Jeff Stelling - Tottenham 0-1 Leeds Paul Merson: Aston Villa (17th) vs Plymouth (1st) Plymouth have shown all the top teams in this division that they are the team to watch this year and that they should be feared, Plymouth have had an amazing start to the season and it is expected that they will pick up another 3 points against a relegation threatened Aston Villa side. Villa have had an unfortunate start to the season but there are many teams around them that could possibly fall into the relegation spots if they are able to pick up some wins. SUPER 6 PREDICTIONS: Phil Thompson - Aston Villa 0-2 Plymouth Paul Merson - Aston Villa 0-3 Plymouth Matt Le Tissier - Aston Villa 1-3 Plymouth Charlie Nicholas - Aston Villa 0-1 Plymouth Jeff Stelling - Aston Villa 0-1 Plymouth ---------------------------------------------------------------- 8:00 PM - ALL GAMES KICK OFF 8:15 PM Stelling: And we're off to Anfield, we hear there is a goal and it's come from a certain German starlet? John Salako: Yes, Andre Schurrle has put Liverpool ahead and infact scored the first goal of the evening in Division 1, Andre linked up brilliantly with his companion in midfield Aaron Hunt who is also from Germany and Schurrle cut onto the outside and tried his luck with the outside of his boot and struck a curling strike in the right corner of the net and the keeper had no chance! 15 minutes gone. Liverpool 1-0 Preston North End rOgdLQWM03M 8:20 PM Stelling: Currently a silent evening in Division 1 for the football, many teams coming close but a lot struggling to pick out that final goal at the moment. All games currently except at Anfield all still goalless. 8:25PM Stelling: Finally! Another goal tonight, this time we go to The Hawthorns, reporting for us tonight at West Brom is Iain Dowie, who's got on the scoresheet Iain? Iain Dowie: It's Luis Suarez, the man who has made 155 appearances for this club has scored his 37th goal, the goal came from a free-kick, Joel Matip brought down the Swiss international Inler, this lead to Gonzalo Castro placing in a lovely cross which Suarez latched onto and headed into the net. 25 minutes on the clock. West Brom 1-0 Shorpe 8:26PM Stelling: Now the goals are starting to come in, we're off to Old Trafford now. Come on Charlie, tell us who's found the net. Charlie Nicholas: Oooooh it's the main man again! Zlatan Ibrahimovic, what a star, what a footballer. He is Mr consistent! (the whole Gilette Soccer Saturday team laugh in hysterics) Paul Merson: Mr Consistent??!!! Charlie Nicholas: "7 goals in 11 games now for Man United, that's consistent. The goal came after Bale danced around the defence before he placed a fantastic ball into the box and Ibra powerfully headed in! United 1-0 up against Everton!" 8:28 - 8:32PM *GOAL UPDATES* WEST BROM 1-1 SHORPE (M. DIAME 28) LIVERPOOL 2-0 PRESTON (L.MESSI 30) MANCHESTER UNITED 2-0 EVERTON (M.HUMMELS 32) 8:36PM Stelling: Most of the goals have gone into the net in the North-West of England with Liverpool and Manchester United both netting 2 goals each at the moment but we now go to the North-East as we're hearing there has been a goal at Middlesborough, but Tony Cottee, who has gone ahead in this game. Tony Cottee: It's been a tightly contested affair here at the moment between Middlesborough and Blackpool but it's Middlesborough here who have broke the deadlock here through Dirk Kuyt whose shot luckily deflects off the Blackpool defender and he has put Middlesborough ahead 1-0! Middlesborough 1-0 Blackpool 8:45 PM - HALFTIME 9:00PM SECOND HALF STARTS: 9:02PM Stelling: We're now off to Old Trafford again, is it Game Over or Game On. Charlie Nicholas, we come to you again. Charlie Nicholas: It is Game On! Everton have found new life after half time and the goal comes from one of there backup strikers, Kevin Gameiro, they were awarded a penalty after he was brought down by Pique, Kevin struck it and it blasted into the back of then net, Man United 2-1 Everton. Stelling: If he can keep up these performances he might be in with a shout of making a few more appearances this year for Everton, he has struggled to pick up a first team place with Dzeko and Ba chosen ahead of him. Manchester United 2-1 Everton 9:05 PM: Stelling: And now we're seeing a shock result come to order here, Phil, tell us more about it. Phil Thompson: This has really surprised me, Leeds have took the lead here after Marco Reus dribbled past the 3 "rocks" at the back in Alves and Bonucci. Marco, who I have been a big fan of has been in fantastic form this season and if anyone was going to score first today it would be him! The German attacking midfielder has put Leeds 1-0 ahead! Reus celebrates in fantastic fashion shushing the North London crowd. 9:08 - 9:17PM *GOAL UPDATES* MANCHESTER UNITED 3-1 SHORPE (G.BALE 53) ARSENAL 0-1 SUNDERLAND (A.SZALAI 62) WEST BROM 1-2 SHORPE (DIEGO MILITO 62) 9:21-9:22PM Stelling: Woah. Just as we've returned from a game in the Championship, I think my ears are unable to think after hearing Phil Thompson screaming as I'm hearing that 2 goals in 2 minutes have gone in?! Phil Thompson: Just as Lavezzi pulled back an equaliser for Tottenham Hotspurs after a lovely wonderstrike, James Rodriguez goes down the other end, the attack just after the goal and nets one into the bottom right hand corner of the goal after some lovely teamwork with his Colombian team-mate Falcao. TOTTENHAM 1-2 LEEDS 9:23PM: Stelling: Just as we thought there could have been a possible comeback before for Everton, it really is GAME OVER now. A typical Gareth Bale wonder-strike Charlie? Charlie Nicholas: It certainly is. This boy loves to strike it from a distance and boy has he done it again! He's got his second goal of the day but I'm sure he'll favour this goal to his previous goal as this was fantastic. Here it is now! Oooooft. Brilliant. ipyVUBRJwBc 9:29 - 9:33PM Stelling: It's not been an exciting evening of football has it Bianca until now? Bianca Westwood: I don't know where these two goals have just instantly arrived from Jeff? In the first half, both teams were really struggling to get any chances on goal and in the 2nd half we have slowly started to see the potential of both sides, especially West Ham and that has been known now as Rakitisky and Lukaku have both found the net after heading in goals to pick up the 3 points for West Ham. The fans have been waiting to cheer all evening and now they have there opportunity to, just 12minutes left of the 90 to go, it's West Ham 2-0 Crystal Palace. 9:36 - 9:43 Stelling: And Liverpool have gone from strength to strength in this game and really found there feet haven't they John? John Salako: Magical Messi. He just dances around the defence, it is lovely to watch and wait, GOOOOOAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLLL It is now 4-0 for Liverpool, Thomas Muller has latched onto the cross from Messi and helped the crowd still here at Anfield to roar in jubilation. This will now put them 2nd in the league and will certainly help there goal difference, they have been brilliant today. (Everyone in the studio laughs at John's sudden roar as the 4th goal went in) Liverpool 4-0 Preston North End 9:45PM: FULL TIME. Final Scores: Tottenham Hotspur 1-2 Leeds United Aston Villa 0-1 Plymouth Argyle Arsenal 0-2 Sunderland Nottm Forest 0-0 Manchester City West Brom 1-2 Shorpe Man United 4-1 Everton Colchester 0-0 Sheffield United Middlesborough 2-0 Blackpool Liverpool 4-0 Preston North End West Ham 2-0 Crystal Palace League Table 1 Plymouth Argyle, 31 (+5) 2 Liverpool, 28 (+4) 3 Middlesborough, 28 (+3) 4 Tottenham Hotspur, 27 (+11) 5 Sunderland, 26 (+12) 6 Blackpool, 25 (+8) 7 Everton, 25 (+2) 8 Crystal Palace, 24 (+3) 9 Leeds United, 23 (+11) 10 Arsenal, 22 (+8) 11 Sheffield United, 21 (-3) 12 Manchester United, 20 (-2) 13 Manchester City, 19 (+6) 14 West Ham United, 18 (-5) 15 West Brom, 17 (-6) 16 Colchester United, 16 (-8) 17 Nottingham Forest, 14 (-10) 18 Aston Villa, 13 (-4) 19 Shorpe United, 13 (-14) 20 Preston North End, 8 (-21)
