Okay, trying to get this thread back on thread, I'll talk about the match I went to today.
Umm, it was a point I suppose
Do I contradict myself?
Very well then I contradict myself,

Yer Scousers fail to win again.
A Liverpool supporting chum of mine is clinging onto the fact it took the Swans 6 games to register a victory last year. Which is all well and groovy if matching Swansea's creditable 11th is the limit of Liverpool's ambitions.
If it is then something truly is rotten in the state of Scouseland.

I see there was some handshake drama in the Prem today, groan

RIP Craigos. A true CW legend. You will be missed.
Just saw Podders's free kick on MOTD. Magic ping from the big Pole/German.
On an unrelated note, Alan Hansen is such a dick. Happy to say "Arsenal could be capable of something special this year", now that they've won two games, conveniently forgetting that he totally wrote them off after the first game of the season. No doubt he'll be the first to put the boot in as soon as they lose few games as well. WAC.
Whites still top of League One. Sensational.

The Rat booked for diving again. Really can't stand him.
Desperate for Reading to get a result against Spurs today. Read this morning that AVB apparently has 3 games to save his job, which is pretty funny. Will be interesting to see how he deals with the Lloris/Friedel situation. Seems like he's deploying the same "I don't give a **** who I piss off, I'm doing things my way" approach that got him the chop at Chelsea.
But I just can't see how he keeps getting hired. Before he even got the Porto job he apparently applied for the Burnley manager's seat, according to The Independent. The Clarets' then chief executive basically dismisses him as a BS artist:
So if little Burnley could see he was all mouth and no trousers, why can't other clubs?Originally Posted by Paul Fletcher
Paul Scholes eh, long described as an under-rated player. Can we please put that to bed now, every time he has a good performance, the Iniesta, Xavi, Charlton, Messi quotes are rolled out.
Yes he's good we get it, everybody gets it.
I sometimes think he is underrated. He's always tied in with Giggs these days, so when Giggs has another **** game it's "how long can they go on??". And you get United fans moaning about how "our best midfielder is a 38 year old", which is just disingenuous because he'd still be the best midfielder at almost any top club.
