Re: English Football 2015-16

pretty surprised no bigger club has come for Coutinho yet. Chelsea for instance could use him.

I bet he will be one of the favourites for the spurs job once Poch inevitably gets fired.

Sad thing is, I can't really be bothered to care either way at the moment. I just miss the days when spurs were at least entertaining.

Same for me with liverpool. That 2nd place suarez season was the most exciting football I've ever watched and the most fun I've ever had watching football. This team and last year are just back to being terrible to watch.

Noble decision shocking.

Coutinho decision seemed harsh as well. Just mistimed a tackle with no intent. Can't just hand out yellows every time that happens

Re: English Football 2015-16

Hoopie: Give me a history lesson here - when was the last time we've had 2 dribblers as good as Payet and Lanzini in the side at the same time? I don't know about anything pre-2007 (mediocrity hunting wanker)

I legit got out of my seat at least 3 times today just from dribbling .... Payet had one in traffic in the middle of the pitch where he clowned their entire midfield

Just hope we make some good depth signings ..... Matri is not the answer. Just go get more hungry young players who can run

Sinclair and Di Canio, definitely. Before that, probably plenty, but Ward and Devonshire stand out.

I thought both red cards were ridiculous. There was nothing in Coutinho's tackle for me.

DiCanio and Trevor Sinclair weren't bad. Scored one of the best goals I've ever seen between the two of them.

Re: English Football 2015-16

So Huth is a bit of a thug.

Very nasty from him on Wilson.

Re: English Football 2015-16

yeah it's pretty boggling that Huth got a yellow for that hoof into Wilson's face. Either the ref saw it, and it's a clear red, or he didn't and it's nothing.

Re: English Football 2015-16

Palace look really good, I'm very impressed. Like from both a physical and "we can hang with you in a passing game" way. So which club is Pardew going to jump to next? You know he has the wanderlust.

CP could do with getting a better striker though.

I don't think Sp*rs should be that worried actually, they'll be fine when they can get both Son and Eriksen into the lineup. I do wonder if it's time for Kyle Runner to step aside though.

Re: English Football 2015-16

We never win when Kevin Friend or Lee Mason ref us. It is known.

Dejan Lovren might be the worst player at any of the Top 6 clubs.

Re: English Football 2015-16

I am so down: (
Completely over the thought of a successful season.
Usually it takes around 4 months, but today was backbreaking.
See no point in doing anything but to completely tank this season to rebuild the club's football foundation a-la NBA style. Potty we don't have a draft and a salary cap (discussion for another day).
Congrats to whoever is gonna get 2nd place.

The real joke is that next season it'll probably happen again.
