Re: Ashley statement about PPV

A fiver is the kind of pricepoint that I'd actually consider - got to imagine it would at least triple the sales.

Elsewhere people are pointing out that Ashley is continuing to take season ticket money and not giving refunds out any time soon.

Re: Wolves thread. interested but also terrified

No one made any attempt to go for the counter there. 9 players stood around our box watching ASM try to wriggle free, and Wilson alone up top.

Re: Wolves thread. interested but also terrified

In possession we seem to go to a 3-1-6, but with the 6 as far away from the ball as possible and no easy passing options <awe>

Liverpool and Man Utd plot new European Premier League

What a surprise! Sounds more like a Champions League than a domestic league replacement, but more money to the big clubs, their owners, and backers, of course.

Re: Coronavirus

The most annoying thing about the reactions of those who complain about the restrictions, the anti-maskers and the civil liberty complainants, is that they are the same ones who almost undoubtedly will shout the loudest that the Government hasn't done enough when they themselves feel the direct cos...

Re: Man United & Liverpool lead 18 club Prem Proposal

I still can't wrap my head around why Southampton and West Ham get to be "special status" clubs <laugh> Controversially, the new proposals would guarantee voting rights to the nine clubs that, at any given moment, have spent the longest extended period in the top flight. This would currently be the...

The Man Utd match has been moved to 8pm (Sat 17th) for this now. https://twitter.com/Zonal_Marking/status/1314564830507003905 Made me look up how many games we have televised domestically per season: 2018/19 - 19 televised 2017/18 - 17 televised So even in the "best" case there, that's £285 to see t...

Definitely a great idea for universities to have been allowed to restart, especially bringing first years on campus etc. All part of the government plan, they know it’s incredibly unli...
