  1. Re: Official Liverpool Thread Insinuating that you took any of yours when in reality you didn't. You didn't 'take' any of your chances and your player got rewarded for dithering and getting tackled. It was just an unintentional fluke deflection. Unless you are willing to call all tackles on attacking players 'chances', which they clearly aren't your point doesn't make any sense. I'd love to see your reaction if it was Man United who got the win in that exact fashion against us. The tune would soon be different.
  2. Re: Official Chelsea FC Thread Under which football law was it a penalty? Enlighten me.
  3. Re: Official Chelsea FC Thread Mike Dean just extremely poor. The penalty he gave was completely wrong. The one he didn't give on Ivanovic was another poor decision. If he doesn't give the penalty then he has to book Ivanovic for diving. It's inexcusable officiating. Matic should have went but that decision came far later in the game. I don't like referees influencing games in this manner. Performance has nothing to do with the referee being incapable of applying the laws of the game. How 'well' are Southampton really doing if they are 2-0 down in half an hour? We'll never know will we.
  4. Re: Official Chelsea FC Thread As well as Southampton played, Mike Dean was the only reason Chelsea didn't take all 3 points.
  5. Re: Official Arsenal Thread Personally think a better keeper than Szczesny might have saved Rooney's header.
  6. Re: Official Liverpool Thread Liverpool 100% win ratio in the league this season when Gerrard hasn't played.
  7. Re: Official Manchester City Thread Fantastic all season. Big game player. Only 2 poor performances. If you say so.. :o
  8. Re: Official Manchester City Thread He's been more disappointing than Ozil. Why he doesn't get labelled a flop is beyond me because that's exactly what he's been. All he does is hide behind the bigger stars in the team. What does he actually do to keep Milner out of the team? 3 goals all season? He starts giving it loud to Chelsea because he got his usual score glossing goal against Stoke but then soon reverts back to his usual anonymous self. He rarely changes a game. When he does score it's usually when City are already winning. I think he's only in the team to whip corners in. He is a coward and I still can't get over the complaints about him being dropped at the World Cup because France clearly didn't miss his sideways passes and ineffectiveness. All I remember from him today is Coutinho skipping past him to power that shot into the top corner. Vintage Nasri performance.
  9. Re: Official Premier League Discussion Thread 40 points reached. On course to overtake 47 which was our highest Premier League tally. Enjoying snatching points in tricky games. 2 games in a row we've done it now.
  10. Re: Official Manchester City Thread 0-2 isn't even flattering either. 2 up top is suicide against this Barca midfield.
  11. Re: Official Premier League Discussion Thread The FA lost the plot when they decided not to ban Barnes on the basis that 'the referee seen the incident'. If he did see it, then he should be demoted to the Championship for being unable to correctly apply the laws of the game. If he didn't see it then retrospective action comes into play and Barnes gets a ban. It's one or the other.
  12. Re: Official Premier League Discussion Thread What amazes me the most is the fine margins and the tightrope walk; how close the club came to going under. Compared to where it is now, truly an unheard of turnaround. A bag of money in a Tesco bag. Couldn't make it up.
  13. Re: Official Premier League Discussion Thread I actually seen a comment on the Sky Sports Facebook page claiming Barnes' tackle wasn't even a foul. Some people don't deserve football. They really don't. Must football fans be blinded by their pure hatred of Chelsea and Mourinho to even defend disgusting acts of thuggery on the pitch? The FA is also woefully incompetent. It is a disgrace how childish acts on the pitch such as: name calling, light pushes in the face & other small innocuous incidents are penalised to the highest degree whereas blatant acts of injury threatening violence are ignored.
  14. Re: Official Premier League Discussion Thread More-so than the 2nd Southampton penalty incident. Are you on drugs?
  15. Re: Official Premier League Discussion Thread Daylight robbery that. Fluke first goal. Never a penalty. Fluke 2nd goal.
  16. Re: Official FA Cup Thread Do feel for Sunderland. Just because they were the big dogs it doesn't mean Bradford City should be allowed to violate the laws of the game with no refereeing punishment.
  17. Re: Official Premier League Discussion Thread Shelvey doing exactly what we needed to redeem himself with the fans. Deserved the luck as we shouldn't have lost to them at home.
  18. Re: Official Arsenal Thread What like Arsenal did with Ramsey in midfield?
  19. Re: Premier League Discussion Thread Olsson is a full international and is a regular first team footballer. Naughton doesn't even play and is nowhere near the terrible England team not even earning a cap, or being able to displace many average Tottenham defenders. It's clear as day who offers more on a football pitch. The summer is where you make big changes to the squad anyway. January signings only incur inflated transfer fees for mediocre players. I'd look to Spain for a cheap loan signing like Montoya or a reasonable bid for Oscar De Marcos who are clearly significantly better players than Naughton and actually offer something needed to a team looking at the top 10 places. Otherwise what was the point in selling Bony? We need to re-invest the money in quality, not dross.
  20. Re: Premier League Discussion Thread In terms of who I'd prefer: Martin Olsson is actually a full international and usually a regular so he'd be up the pecking order. Hector Bellerin would have been great on loan if Arsenal didn't lose Debuchy. Montoya from Barcelona would get valuable game time with us and I think would have been a great option for another loan coup since the guy barely plays. Getting teams to sell players in January is usually difficult so it's more important to bring in cover. Edit: Caulker has been awful true but I call that the 'QPR effect' or the 'Playing next to Ferdinand' effect.
  21. Re: Premier League Discussion Thread The difference being Sigurdsson was always a good player as proven by his time at Hoffenheim and his first spell with us; he wasn't just some Tottenham chump. Caulker is another who is currently leagues ahead of Naughton and has actually had good games over the course of a season to prove his worth. Naughton is a relegation standard player at best. He never forced his way into that terrible Tottenham defence during his 6 year spell for a reason. Because he is atrocious. Calling him better than Rangel is baseless.
  22. Re: Premier League Discussion Thread We should have learned from the N'Gog signing. Kyle Naughton is not good enough for Swansea City. 4 million is an absolute rip off. Comments from Tottenham fans go along the lines of: "I'll drive him there myself" "Levy is a genius if this deal goes through" Says it all really :o
  23. Re: Premier League Discussion Thread Linked with Kyle Naughton - 4 million. :o He is such an incompetent footballer it's untrue.
