Football thread 2015/16 season.

I don't think we should be surprised, he was obviously a difficult employee to handle.

All those betting on Rodgers to get the sack first must be gutted! ;-)

Season hasn't started yet. :coffee:

A difficult employee to handle? Nah. His job was to keep Leicster up and he worked a miracle and did it. Total madness to bin him.

Very surprised about Pearson - sure, he was antagonistic, grumpy and often inappropriate, but he did a really good job not only to keep them up but had them playing some good stuff even when results went against them.

Baffling decision, he done a brilliant job of keeping the club up last season.

I wonder if this is linked with his son getting sacked from the club.

Hopefully they have a manager in mind & can get someone in quick for pre-season & the transfer window. They just need to stay away from Harry.

Oh yeah, total madness indeed, but this is football, clubs do nuts things all time!

Depending on who they get in they could be in trouble next season.

Directly linked to his son if various papers are to be believed, which they probably aren't.

Awful refereeing in the USA Germany semi final. Bottled sending the USA defender off when she was the last defender and then game USA a penalty that was outside the box. Is is justice for how soft the Germany penalty was against France I suppose.

Yeah, but Germany just looked all over the place for that last goal, and the yanks pretty much dominated the last third.

Great result.

The better team won. Could have been different if Sasic had scored her penalty, or Lloyd's was given as a free kick instead, but there can be few arguments left.

Means the final is either going to have a massive underdog in England, or be a repeat of the last one, so plenty of story potential. Germany also miss the chance to hold both World Cups at the same time, as well as the Women's Euros, which would have made next year's men's event pretty darn big for them.

Properly hideous.

You watch, I'm gonna say 2 seasons from now, everyone will be wearing black boots and the balls will be white.

Well, it's not for a shot at the league title or Champions League participation. Maybe he just really likes the accent?

ps. It's always quite strange that you neg my posts and then reply. Why bother? I mean, either just neg or just respond. Doing both seems a bit odd.

He's taking a big step up, that's for sure. He'll be challenging for a cups and a Champions League place, playing in Europe regularly, and joining a club with a global fan base, the likes of which he could only dream about at Southampton.

Oh, and sorry...I didn't realise I wasn't allowed to neg posts I don't agree with? Perhaps you should get on the PMs again and get your forum buddys to come and neg all my posts. You're obsessed, and certainly not the boss of me.

Considering Liverpool spent the second half of last season doing their very best to not have to be in the Europa League it seems odd to be using this as a selling point.

"Why did you choose to make the move to Liverpool, Nathaniel?"

"Oh, well, global fanbase innit?"

Anyway, I have no problem with negging posts you don't agree with, but if you are replying anyway why not verbalise it in that way at the same time?

It seems a strange move for Clyne. His stock was pretty high after last season, and at least one of the Champions League teams were looking for a decent right back. United don't really have a right back at all, and Zabaleta is a fading force. If he'd bided his time a bit he might have ended up at one of those clubs, and been in a team challenging for the league in a season or two. Instead he's gone to a club who haven't been serious contenders for decades, aren't in the Champions League, and appear to be in a bit of a state of disarray at the moment.

The LDF won't like this, and will point to two semi finals last season, plus the spectacular anomaly that was 2013-2014. You might say that United are in a pretty poor state too, and City always seem seconds away from the bubble bursting, and may have a point with both those things. I just think Clyne has sold himself a bit short, and I don't see what he gains by moving to a team that generally hovers around the same region of the league as his previous club.
