SOCCER - WINTER 2020

Recommended Posts

Mario Balotelli apparently got subbed on in the 74th, got yellow carded in the 80th for a Foul, and then got sent off in the 81st for complaining...sb got that "why always me?!" pic on standby? Gotta love that guy.

Christian Eriksen to Internazionale is happening. Also, in clear indicator of their current ambition level, Manchester United are attempting to get Islam Slimani on loan from Leicester.

Only in soccer: Coventry, forced to play their home matches 40 miles out of town at Birmingham City after getting kicked out of the Ricoh, are "hosting" Birmingham City today in the FA Cup. What up @Sky Blue Sam?

Anybody else wanting West Ham United down like me? For me it's because of the owners, the owners and the Hammers losing Upton Park for the London Stadium.

If you think about it losing out on the bidding for the Olympic Stadium was probably just about the best thing that has ever happened to Spurs.

It's just not right, when sports teams are funded by the taxpayer. Supposed to be a level playing field, financially.

When you have teams owned by nation states and oligarchs, harder to have competitive balance.

Soccer hasn't been a level playing field financially in any of our lifetimes. The rich get richer, and the smaller clubs are lucky if they can qualify for Europen competitions.

I would say never, when you had the factory owners/robber barons owning teams in Victorian times and all the shenanigans involving importing and paying players, etc.

Yeah, but that stuff all falls under Evils Of Capitalism. Getting a free stadium off the Government that taxpayers paid for is well dodgy.

Dodgy is probably expected when dealing with the pornographers. 😉

Very strange day, albeit probably more strange for the Birmingham fans forced to sit in the away end. It made for quite an enjoyable atmosphere in the end, and 21,000 is comfortably our biggest attendance this season. Of course, the game ended up a draw, so now we have the replay this time as the away team.

It's probably the single best advertisement for scrapping replays. What a joke.
