KaisertheCoyote: Why doesn't Chelsea cut the shait and just make David Luiz a midfielder, or at least a defensive midfielder?


Because that would require AVB to admit he was wrong about something and he just can't do that, it seems. He comes off as massively stubborn to me.

"Come back as we talk about Manchester City as they face their ultimate test against Blackburn"

LOL @ Fox Soccer announcers

/yes, I can only hope he meant it as "final meeting of the season" but it sounded more like hype
 
2012-02-25 12:27:25 PM  
The lineups:

Man City: Hart, Zabaleta, Kompany, Lescott, Kolarov, De Jong, Toure Yaya, Silva, Aguero, Johnson, Balotelli. Subs: Pantilimon, Richards, Milner, Pizarro, Dzeko, Nasri, Clichy.

Blackburn: Robinson, Orr, Dann, Hanley, Martin Olsson, Pedersen, Petrovic, Hoilett, Formica, Marcus Olsson, Yakubu. Subs: Bunn, Modeste, Nzonzi, Rochina, Goodwillie, Vukcevic, Henley.

Yes, Mario's back.
 
2012-02-25 12:31:30 PM  
I've got a bad feeling that Ryo Miyaichi may be the Arsenal player of the week this week.
 
2012-02-25 12:31:44 PM  

desertgeek: Yes, Mario's back.


HOORAY! The potential entertainment value of this match has just gone up!

And he almost scores in the first minute.

Who's going to start for your front two? You can't leave Robinho out the form he's in, and Boateng has to be right behind him. Time to trust Pato or El Shaarawy? Maybe Muntari?
 
2012-02-25 01:08:11 PM  
It seems Hufflepuff is really holding their own against city.
 
2012-02-25 01:18:20 PM  
City should have about 5 right now. They are running this game.

I'm guessing Robinho and Pato, we also got Maxi Lopez who is doing ok so far, but don't see that as a starter, maybe a sub if needed
 
2012-02-25 01:42:04 PM  
SERGIO AGUERO makes it 2!!!!! Horrible mistake from Robinson, fell right into Kun's path.
 
2012-02-25 02:10:43 PM  
EDIN DZEKO makes it clear and safe for Manchester City to take a (albeit temporary) 5 point lead at the top of the table.

Welp, on to the next one it seems here.

For a very strange reason, no Kevin-Prince Boateng in the squad at all. He's replaced with Sulley Muntari, Robinho and Alexandre Pato up top.

FTFY.

The Merseyside Derby was supposed to be at Anfield today, but it looks like Everton doesn't play again until next week.

I step away for 10 mins to make myself scrambled eggs and Milan have scored. Typical.

ANTONIO NOCERINO gets a lucky deflection.

That was over the line, Muntari just got robbed.

midpoint: In other, other news, one of my dissertation students is called Craig Whyte, and has been getting death threats via Twitter and Facebook.

Link (new window)


That's absolutely farking disgraceful, and I am thoroughly angered and embarrassed at being associated with the kind of filth who are sending those threats. Somehow I'm not too surprised that the sort of fuds who send them can't be bothered to do their research either.

Banter is one thing, and I'll gladly sling abuse towards the huns, but violence and threats of violence are barbaric and completely unacceptable.
 
2012-02-25 03:31:39 PM  

Langston: Meanwhile, I'll hold my breath until tomorrow and keep my fingers crossed tightly. Very, very tough game at home for Arsenal tomorrow. And sometime last night, Arshavin went back to Russia on a loan, but I have a feeling there's an element of the loan that releases Arshavin permanently when the summer transfer window opens.


Holy shiat. Outstanding.
 
2012-02-25 03:47:04 PM  
30 seconds in is the replay ^ is the ref freaking blind?

That said, fun match, Milan look good, but this damm well should be 2 - nil

Supporters of clubs whose idea of a trophy cabinet is a little shelf they bought at ikea are best off not getting involved when the grownups are talking.

Also cmon Cardiff just because!

Buying or selling?

I've had a rare foray into a non-fitba thread: Link (new window)


Going for my masters in transportation engineering and this is my first university visit. Going pretty damn well so far.

Hmm really? That's too bad. Everyone I have met has been super nice and other than the cold/wind its been a great experience so far.
 
2012-02-25 04:29:36 PM  
Welp, saw that coming.

ALESSANDRO MATRI levels the scores.

Momentum has been going Juventus' way for the last 15 mins, well deserved goal.
Milan have to turn up the heat, or they're going to lose this one.
 
2012-02-25 04:40:30 PM  
bleh a 1-1 draw, that was clearly a 2-1 win, Juve marches on unbeaten as the draw masters
 
2012-02-25 04:40:30 PM  
Milan didn't win, but they didn't lose either, so a wash as far as the match goes.

ScouserDuck: Supporters of clubs whose idea of a trophy cabinet is a little shelf they bought at ikea are best off not getting involved when the grownups are talking.

Ah, look at the daft Liverpool supporter, thinking his team is in the elite any more.

Fine, Everton are mid-table mediocrities, but they've still won 9 League titles (4th behind Man Yoo, the shiate and Arsenal), the last a mere three years (1986-87) before Liverpool's 22 year title drought began, they've won 5 FA Cups to the Red shiate's 7 and they've been in the top flight longer than any other team.

Liverpool's spent how many millions (hundreds of millions?) of pounds in the last 22 years and they still play in an antiquated stadium, have had their bitter rivals Manchester United lap them for most titles won and, like Everton, will probably be sitting home next season while other teams play European football. Jeebus, Moyes should get a Knighthood for keeping Everton in the top flight when they've been a selling club since at least the late 90's, in part because they can't get the funding for a new stadium (=more revenue).

Go ahead, wave minor trophies like the Charity Shield, the UEFA Super Cup (!!) and the like around, it just points out what a mediocre bunch the red side of Liverpool has become.

Well that's quite the analysis in response to simple football rivalry ribbing.

First off, laping is not the same as passing. ManU has 1 more league title than us.
Secondly, I'll have you know that next year will be our year. We've been on a bidecade rebuilding plan. City will win the league this year and well be tied with the mancs at 19 in 2013.
Third, hopefully we can win the carling cup tomorrow and keep our tournament form up an win the FA cup as well bringing home 2 trophies in a year that Manu, Chelsea, and Arsenal might fail to bring home 1. (if you remember we had to beat both Manu and city to remain in the competitions)

Finally, Liverpool > Everton.

Christ, I've been a 'pool supporter for 35 years and even I think this is optimism bordering on delusion. We would need a huge amount of investment, a new stadium,a complete overhaul of the squad and likely a new manager to attract top tier international talent. Without Champion's League, players and agents would want to see Man City levels of spending before commiting to a mid table team. No, we'll continue to buy overpriced homegrown talent, stretch our squad to the breaking point if we do win the FA and sneak into the Europa, and finish between 6th and 10th again.

Kickoff is in five hours!
I am hammered!
In my current state, my first touch is still probably better than Walcott's!
Will RVP care?
Will Gervinho's forehead reflecting the sunlight have any effect on Friedel's field vision?
Will Adebayor be subbed out in the second half to tweet at angry Arsenal fans?
Is any water bottle safe from the wrath of Wenger?
Will Wenger try to sub in Henry accidentally?
Will Rosicky get rid of that awful haircut?
Will Alex Song get a yellow card, or rather, what minute will Alex Song get a yellow card?
Will someone do something about Modric's teeth?

IT'S NORTH LONDON DERBY DAY, FOLKS, LET'S STAY DRUNK. GUNS UP!

/someone should really take my compy away when I've been drinking so much


Noooooo don't let them do it Billy that post was hilarious. My two favorite laffs reading through it were Gervinho's forehead (personally I'd nominate him as having fivehead) affecting Friedel's field vision and Wenger trying to sub Henry in accidentally. That was high quality. Also, IMO Rosicky is just a goofy looking dude regardless of haircut and now Arsenal don't have the Human Meerkat so he just stands out that much more as someone to make fun of. Well at least until you look over to City and Joleon Lescott's hairline and forehead. Seriously, did that guy's forehead get mangled in a car accident or something? I'm endlessly curious about that, just kind of a weird morbid curiosity though.

I'm gonna try to get as wasted as you and watch the hell out of these games.
