  1. Arsenal aren't a diddy club but even if they were, so what? What's wrong with being a diddy club? They don't attract glory hunters for a start.
  2. It's not wishful thinking. I would rather that both teams could lose if that was possible. Klopp and Guardiola are both chequebook managers who wouldn't cope at a team like Newcastle or Crustal Palace, deprived of the ability to spend at will. But it seems a lot of people on here are unaware of the script that seems to be being played out in front of us. Like I say, we'll see.
  3. Well we'll have to see. But City have not been good recently despite 13 wins. They have been anything but convincing and I think it is in the script that they will end up with only the League Cup (which is worse than winning nothing for them).
  4. I think Liverpool are going to win the title. Do you really think they will lose or draw to Wolves after tonight? Of course not but I can see City failing to win t Brighton as they have been shit for weeks now.
  5. It looks as if City could end the season with only the embarrassing League Cup (on penalties at that), possibly supplemented by the FA Cup, as I think they will fall short in the League. If so, that should rate as a very poor season and by recent standards of management sackings, Guardiola should be looking for a new job soon. But the myth of 'Pep' will prevail and he'll be free to continue his big spending ways. How anyone sees anyone like that as a great manager is beyond me.
  6. A bit off topic, but why can't the fill the ground for their derby matches? The whole upstairs section of one of the stands was closed and that's not unusual for a Birmingham derby.
  7. You're probably thinking of Wigan, who won League and Cup doubles every year for seven years or something. Widnes had a good team at one time though and had a successful period, with a number of Wembley appearances. Those days aren't coming back for a long while.
  8. The thing is the media buy into this shit and the narrative is of pucky underdogs punching above their weight, restoring pride to a nation etc. The obvious points are never made and Rodgers is never challenged about this sort of crap.
  9. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/rugby-league/47319477 Widnes Vikings Rugby League team who I support are going into administration with a 12 point deduction. Sunday's match has already been cancelled. The club has suffered from terrible management with a CEO awarding himself massive bonuses for years of failure. It all sounds very familiar and is very depressing.
  10. This story seems to have died a death. Looks like it is bullshit.
  11. Northern Ireland football is real football. I went over with my daughter for the first Linfield home game against Institute. If it wasn't for the cost of flying over we'd come very week. You feel like you're with proper football fans, not the Sky TV Premisership Brigade.
  12. Do Zenit have to play behing closed doors? It looks like that, the stadium was empty.
  13. Whatever happens tomorrow night, this result was more important. Not just because of the financial consierations but becuase it has stoped the media love in of "these great European nights at celtic park" which are used to portray them as the biggest club in Glasgow, Scotland, Britain, Europe, the universe etc. The optics are important and for the first time in a while their image is suffering. And that is without the paedo stuff in the news.
  14. Liverpool were English champions in 1966, so the comparison doesn't work. City won it in in 1968.
