A lot of moaning about time added on today (oddly from a fair few United fans). 

 

I want to see an experiment at some point. At a stadium run two clocks

 

1. Constant never stops for each half like normal. 

 

2. Stops only for injuries, subs. Indicated by the a referee signal the clock is stopped. 

 

Have this linked to the referee's watches. 

 

Those in the stadium can then see where the time comes from. 

 

Trial it at somewhere like Tottenham ever they are sure to have the tech to cover it. Do it without public display for a few games, then look to trial it public facing. 

 

Hopefully stop all the conspiracy theories. Also stops refs being able to hide. Liverpool fans are terrible for the whining with this too.

Lots are complaining that Forest are signing alot of players and whilst it has been a bit OTT they've basically had to build a new squad

 

The owner is highly questionable and haven't they bought at least one player only to loan them straight to Olympiakos? Who are owned by the same dodgy bloke.

 

Edit : I suppose nobody is questioning Newcastle or City, who also have dodgy owners.

He sounds beyond awful

Dendoncker to Villa confirmed. Decent signing.

Not convinced. None of my Wolves mates are sad to see him go.

 

In fairness, we could have signed Mbappe and Gerard would make play him out of position and make him look shit.

He's a solid DM with some presence. We need to firm up the midfield and he offers that. I don't think he's incredible but he's decent, so long as we accept he's best at very specific things.

I feel like people question City and Newcastle all the time? All are awful. Bad money ruins football.

Are Leicester in danger of being only the second Premier League era champions to be relegated. They look woeful.

 

I don't like this 'Premier League era' stuff in stats, it really doesn't make sense. Leeds don't count cos they won it the year before it got rebranded? not picking on you, just I see it loads and I don't get the arbitrary distinction other than feeding into the branding. so like, someone like Rush was shit cos he was old when the league rebranded?

 

at least with the CL they don't pretend it's a separate competition after rebranding, even though you could argue the format has changed so much it's almost a different competition to the European Cup.

I think this year a couple of names could drop out of the league with Forest and Fulham having a go.  Aside from Bournemouth there are no obvious nailed on ones like Watford or Burnley were last year.  Could Everton or Leicester go?  How about Villa?

Mate, just a bit of fun. Since the Premier League was formed only one of its winners had been relegated. I found it an interesting stat. I know football existed before 1992. I feel I am one of a small minority that refer to the European Cup as the European Cup and the UEFA Cup as the UEFA Cup. 

 

It's why I added 'era' to my comment.

Does the transfer window apply to fans? 
 

Vardy woefully out of form, Maddison evidently not fit, Ndidi as a CB, half of our 10 outfield players are CM, desperately in need of a RM/RW as Barnes seems our only attacking threat and a keeper who is the 2nd worst performing GK in the league behind Travers (on PSxG). 
 

Evidently Soyuncu is now behind three CM in the CB pecking order. And Vestergard is even further behind - a £15m panic buy which has been an utter disaster.

He's fucking horrible, but I'm happy for Nottingham as a city benefiting from Forest being promoted. And like you say, no one really gives two shits where other teams get their money unless they want to use it as a stick to beat other fans with. One day these owners will be gone, just like Abromavich, and all that will be remembered is a statistic stating if the club won something during that time.

Can offer you a large serving of Scouse Pie and a packet of decent crisps to come to Liverpool 😛

I also do this.

 

And then I refer to the Champions League as the Champions League and the Europa League as the Europa League.

 

Come at me, bro!

You can make a credible argument we're the worst side in the league at the moment. We're in real trouble.
