- Soccerball Goooaaaaal! 2018/19 season
Forlan was a fantastic player but he was very much a continental player. In Italy and Spain, the forwards often work on set moves/plays, which are orchestrated in advance on the training field, whereas for some reason this isn’t a part of the English game. In such a set-up Forlan’s movement became more impactful and he could be a deadly finisher.Posted 3 months ago
But I think Suarez has surpassed him as the best Uruguayan striker now as he has more versatility.
and some fun from Photoshop with England and Sunderland’s Number 1

Honestly Binners I still reckon your lot are worth a fiver at this stage.
When I got back from the Bournmouth game (Ole’s 3rd match in charge, I think) I thought I’d check out our odds of us winning the CL. It was 40/1 so I thought it had to be worth a fiver.
But we’ve not got a good record against Barca. I remember watching in awe as they took us apart in the 2009 final at Wembley. It was a lesson in tactical attacking football. Its the only time I’ve seen Fergie stood staring and not knowing what on earth to do about it. He had no answers. The United fans all applauded the Barca players off at the end. It was a masterclass!
They did it to us again 2 years later
The present Barca squad isn’t up there with that one, but its fair to say I’m not confidentPosted 3 months ago
I don’t know, I think Barca would have preferred just about anyone else in the draw, City included.
Very hard to prepare for OGS’s United, I would have thought. They have absolutely nothing to lose here, he seems to be bringing out some very unexpected performances, and is likely to show them very little respect.Posted 3 months ago
True Martin. Nobody thought we had a chance against PSG either. That’s the joy of knockout competitions. It doesn’t matter who you are, have a bad day at the office and you’re out. As Real we’re just reminded
I stuck a fiver on us winning the FA Cup at the same time. Ever the optimist, me
Should be a good match against Wolves later. I really rate them and they’re great to watch. Lightning quick on the counter. They were bloody unlucky not to beat Chelski last week. Going to be a tough gamePosted 3 months ago
Yeah, had e=my eye on the Newcastle one as Ireland ruined the party, a Newcastle team finding it’s feet again (along with some comedy defending and a couple of naps at the back) for his work rate great to see Richie get the equaliser with a screamer. And before my fellow geordie comes back saying he is no good the stat last weekend
came up, most crosses in the premier league this season
Looking forward to a shorter MoTD tonight 3 games 40 mins, highest placed team 9th 🙂Posted 3 months agoCletusMember
City were very lucky with the questionable penalty, rebound off the keeper and offside third but that’s the way things go sometimes and City have had more than their share of bad luck in the past.
Credit to Swansea – their second goal was a thing of beauty and it is great that Celina finished it so well after his penalty mis-kick in the week.
Fabian Delph must be the most relieved man in Wales this evening as his mistake could have contributed hugely to City going out of the cup to a Championshio side for the second successive season.Posted 3 months ago
