really seems like the complete package, would be shocked if he was still a Leicester player next season tbh

pool have the team to compete in the big games but lack the individual quality(especially at striker) to grind out wins when teams play defensively

Re: English Football 2015-16

nah kloppool ghan skull bone the league, basically going to construct RAYO with better players

england aint got the technical ball playing defenders and tactical movement to beat presses and defenders dive bravely and englishly too often instead of hold positions when the ball is transitioned.

theres like 18 teams that do fairly typical stuff and a leicester that sorta try to win the ball up high since VARDS and KANTE and TRYHARDS. and then KLOPP that counterpresses systematically and uses firmino as a false 9 when appropriate

Lol worked fantastic against C.P

Agree with cashy, they'll win the big games - quite scary to see what they do against us tbh when we side/back pass it around with no pace. They are going to be all over us, way worse than Arsenal a couple of weeks back.

Bet that feature has been going for yonks as well!

Re: English Football 2015-16

lol fanny

Plops next games in the league are:-

Swansea, WBA, Watford (a), Leiester, Sunderland (a)

That's up until New Years day.

So you're fully expecting this switch to flick and get 15/15 points?

lol, am i meant to defend a position i never took

no while not impossible you are a decent dog to win 5 80/20 flips in a row or whatever the rough win probability is for pool wins which is obv less than 80% on average. you can only be good and play good and whatever happens happens.

in the same way that is unlikely that my scorepoint getters will keep getting own goals and red cards while ruining the CS bonus of my 2 bus utd defenders and that carzola falls on his arse so that my captain sanchez do not get a scorepoint, all this random stuff is exactly random. stuff happens and then this thread builds some narratives

Man United have found a whole new way to annoy me post-Fergie. It used to be refs and extra time, now it's ****ing Superman in goal.

yeah not sure why flamini is so box-to-box, was a perfectly sick top 5 DM allowing cesc to YOLO

milan just screwed up his career by asking him to do more than he's good at

Over 2.5 touched 1.04 in play (96% chance) at 0-0 between sides in 10th and 11th in the same division which is madness.

The away sides odds of 1.3 (around 77% chance) to be winning at HT were following a similar pattern in that they were shortening as time decayed. The market was saying that there was a 77% chance of the away side winning the first half with 11 mins to go with the scoreline at 0-0. That's clearly miles off. The away side were 7/1 underdogs pre match as well. You then notice that the home side are 1.68 (60%) to win the match despite the assumption that they're about to fall behind, again miles off. At this point it's becoming clear that the game has been rigged for the home side to fall behind before HT and to come back to win in the 2nd half. In fact the away sides odds to win at HT never went above evens and that was at 44 mins. Once the away side scored on the stroke of HT, that was the confirmation that something dodgy was taking place.

This wasn't top flight Greek football and there was large money piling on these events happening, that was probably the biggest giveaway.
Thanks for the write up impressive! Nj!


Right, how often do footballers go out on the lash iyo? (Average)...grealish got drunk Saturday and all villa fans are furious about it but I can't help but think who cares, every footballer does it

I would be very surprised if >5% of PL footballers go out on the piss each weekend.

why would you need a whole 2 spare defenders against lone striker systems, it was remarkable that leicester went the old 4-4-2 vs newcastle and even thats not a regular thing for them.

arsenal have better players so just play a similar line-up to the epl droogs

re alcohol, what are we talking about here? a glass of wine to go with their dinner or like tony adams?

Re: English Football 2015-16

i understand it would be a huge problem if they went out every weekend on the piss. but once a month or every other month surely is no problem wrt to fitness etc?

As more and more foreign players come to England, I'd expect the percentage that go out drinking heavily each weekend to reduce as well. They're professional athletes and he's almost certainly getting paid handsomely to play for a team that has five points after 13 games. I can understand why those that pay his wages might not be best pleased.

Re: English Football 2015-16

Not sure how often this happen but I suspect that footballers under 25 are going out and getting drunk a large % of the time if they have an off-day the following day. Sometimes you just got to relieve all this stress, drink some booze and be dared to smoke cigarettes by your friends

It wasn't that long ago that it was practically compulsory at West Ham to head down to China White after a game (the result of the game is immaterial), act like a **** and then spit roast some star(lol)struck slut after buying her a couple of Grey Goose and Coke. Whilst I have not seen any video evidence, I'd imagine that these tender moments of young love were often captured by one of the players (perhaps a more dependable, less flashy player like a centre-half or the guy that anchors the midfield) in glorious technicolour so that the moment could be relived at training next week.

You don't think Sturridge and Benteke are good enough to grind out wins at home when teams play defensively?
