Thanks for the reminder, NOT! I have tried to wipe such risk averse football from my mind.

Re: Euro 2024

The tactics from England are so safety first, it is unbelievable, In the last three games I have been counting the number of passes back to the keeper in the first minute of possession. Slovenia - 4 Solvakia - 4 Switzerland - 3 How negative can you be! They only attacked with purpose once they were ...

Re: General Election 2024

40% of the British public didn't even vote so they have no right to any opinions, hereafter. I'm surprised at you, though, Mal: using turnout figures in that way is like admitting that only 25% of the British people voted to leave the EU...

Re: Euro 2024

Scotland should have been awarded a penalty. I was amazed that it was never referred to VAR. They have been referred and given them for a lot less than that.

Re: Euro 2024

I read that Southgate blamed a lack of energy for the second half performance. If that were true, then why only make 3 subs and not 5. Another poor tactical call from him.

Re: Euro 2024

Not impressed at all. They were hanging onto a 1-0 lead at the end. Typical Gareth Southgate tactics. Has he not learnt anything from Euros Final of three years ago? He was lucky to get away with it last night but against better teams, it won't work.

Re: WHO SAYS CHEATS NEVER PROSPER?

Football always seems to favour the cheats. One rule for some, another rule for others. Look at Man City compared to Nottingham Forest and Everton. Reading's treatment as compared to Bury.

Re: Shrewsbury big loss

Sadly, I disagree with your last viewpoint on the health of the English game.... ... Agents demands are slowly destroying the financial viability of many Clubs below the Premier League, and those who manage a brief spell in the top tier. Sorry but Agents fees are just another cost of doing business...
