  1. So I've just turned on midway through a penalty shootout between New York City and Orlando City... The Orlando goalkeeper has been sent off half way through the shootout and all sorts of other confusion. Amazing scenes. The tiny keeper makes the save and Orlando go through!
  2. As long as nobody kicks a ball at her she'll be fine.
  3. Well, a great weekend to see how not to take a penalty!
  4. After a headlock at one end looking like a soft penalty for United but the games too dire to even garner a laughable penalty decision.
  5. Well that escalated even more than anticipated.
  6. It's a return to form, Bale makes debut Spurs don't win for ages with him near the team.
  7. I'd expect little else, they can market it now as doing fans a favour while you can't get to games but as things return to normal, if the experiment were to work, they would certainly change that system and say "if people watch "lesser" fixtures at £15 a pop, they'll definitely pay for "must see" matches now that idea's out there"
  8. Has he blamed the EU for trying to force it through yet?
  9. While we love Blood Bowl at the local a new game seems to be taking over at the moment, Counter Attack. It's a strategic football game played in real time, it's playing really nicely and feels like a decent tabletop simulation of the sport. As we've played more games we've got used to getting through balls to work, clever set piece moves, off side traps played fairly well and we're finally adapting to playing a game without set turns in a conventional way. We're coming up to the end of the first season, two games left and I'm sitting in second place 5 points behind the leaders who are com
  10. It's hard to believe that this could have been even worse...
  11. Game broken, needs patching. Do not recommend.
  12. Well, that's been an interesting few minutes.
  13. It's ridiculous but it was it is. We saw the goal coming, the ridiculous fashion just adds to it. I'm not sure how the rules got so mental that "head the ball point blank into someones arm from behind" is given as a penalty but it is what people have to deal with now.
  14. nah, 85th minute equaliser, 93rd minute stupid penalty.
  15. He'll have days when things don't work but he's always working his arse off. On particularly shit games with Spurs he's normally at least trying to make things happen while the rest walk around and don't play him in when he makes runs.
  16. Following on from last seasons very late drama... Macclesfield Town have been wound up today. article here It was a certain inevitability from even before Covid hit but with this factor in I don't think it's going to be the last team to go before this all blows over. Southend are on the brink and they aren't alone in that.
  17. Nice preseason walkabout from Spurs there.
  18. Felt like it was coming that one, Leeds were getting deeper and deeper and stopped playing those easy balls over the top Liverpool kept struggling to cope with. Silly lazy challenge when you're up against it. Could still be room for more.
  19. You really shouldn't have praised him for that
  20. She's already been threatened with legal action for this one. I look forward to the sequel.
  21. If timing worked out, bagsy goblin barbarian
  22. Had a terrible season and got lucky on that one, hard to argue with the reasoning for the reprieve, in part due to the ridiculous way the season had to close but need to hope the signings do something to improve the side because will need to be a lot better to get away with it again. The situation at Macclesfield though is shit and I hope they're able to get their own financial reprieve and someone is able to come in and keep the club afloat, tell Campbell to fuck right off by not closing down completely.
  23. This was in the 1/100 times that the opposition did their research and waited for him to go wandering of course which, added to the hilarious late dive made it look a lot worse than if he'd been simply wrong footed. It's not the most bizarre goalkeeping we saw during the season but for it to happen then and in that game is going to be badly magnified.
  24. At 2-0 going into stoppage time I said that it'll be sods law Brentford get a goal back when it's too late to pressure them, especially when you get the inevitable tussle in the net for the ball taking up time. Anyone who's seen football before knew full well that would happen at that point should Brentford score. It's silly but it happens any time a team are trying to hold up a game to hang on at the end. We had pretty much a keeper time wasting full house by the end of the game.
