    Can't see it. Why do it now and have to spend money, when you can do it in May for nothing. They won't sack him.
  3. Football 17/18

    Yes, it's very good I agree.
  4. Football 17/18

    Do two teams often play their best football against each other in the same game?
  5. Football 17/18

    Very unlikely I would guess. Do you read what you post?
  6. Football 17/18

    Really? A few seasons ago, "at our best" we did the double over Man Utd and Arsenal. We finished 15th. They finished 1st and 4th respectively. We were of better quality that season than Man Utd and Arsenal?
  7. Football 17/18

    When comparing two teams quality against each other what's of greater importance - their results against each other or the league table?
  8. Football 17/18

    Are they?
  9. Football 17/18

    The difference about that England side compared to virtually any England team since was they just never knew when they were beaten. We were second best for the majority of the games against Belgium and Cameroon but you just knew they would get the job done.

    Which one would that be? Hartlepool? Clarifying your bollocks statement even further now?!
  11. Football 17/18

    Fine, but that's not what you said. What? Other teams regularly use it, particularly against the top teams away from home.

    Groves v Eubank is a fight I am looking forward to.
  13. Football 17/18

    Not true at all.
  14. General News Discussion

    You haven't offended me.
  15. General News Discussion

    Call it what you like, I really don't care. The important bit is your mass generalisation of both parties is simply not true. There are many examples of Tory infighting when towing the party line would be more favourable with regard to gaining or maintaining power. Similarly there are many examples when the opposite is true. The same is true of the Labour Party. Politics isn't as black and white as some left leaning voters like to make out.

    Don't you? Very much sounds like you do.

    Of which most are qualified to play for Wales through their great uncle's cousin's pet rabbit no? Let's hope not!
  18. Football 17/18

    Careful, keep on like that and you'll get a response that includes the words 'arrogant' and 'English'.
  19. General News Discussion

    This is often the reason Tory voters can't have a sensible discussion with labour voters - many left leaning voters simply have no idea about politics and blindly vote left because left = principled and right = ruthless. To put it plainly, your view is bollocks.

    If you ignore fans and particularly ones that do away trips, which of course all football organisations already do, the obvious answer is non seeded, non-regionalised World Cup qualifying groups...

    The rules are the rules are the rules. Unfortunately, the member FA's continually choose to back FIFA rather than do something about them. They had the biggest opportunity in a generation to do something about them with the whole Blatter stuff and they chose to brush it under the carpet. I wonder why.... To then bitch and moan about something as trivial as seeding introduced by FIFA seems a bit worthless to me.
  22. Football 17/18

    Didn't realise you were such a pup !
  23. Football 17/18

    Except you would be making it fairer possibly? I think there are plenty of worse rules I'd change first given the chance.
  24. Football 17/18

    The rules are the rules are the rules. If they're not, then I suggest there's plenty of other things to question. For example, there is an argument that there shouldn't be teams that miss out that are far stronger than teams that qualify, solely because the countries in question happen to be from strong/weak 'continents'.

    Ireland are a Martin O'Neill team.
