Re: Rovers v Manchester United, Sat 4th Oct, 17:30

... and Derbyshire is wasted out wide. He played in behind Santa Cruz rather than out wide :foot: Well he spent most of his time out on the flank. He looked more effective when he moved in beside Roberts towards the end of the second half. He worked both flanks, just like Santa Cruz did. Personally...

Re: Rovers v Manchester United, Sat 4th Oct, 17:30

Anyone who was down at the game today can't deny that Man U deserved their win, but yet again, the manner in which they got their first goal leaves a bitter taste in the mouth. And the real thing I am disappointed in, is that we were really in the game until that goal went in. When Derbyshire chose ...

Re: Dear Ethiaa

We were together for a year at uni, and we've both graduated now and gone back to our own homes. We did think about ending it but decided to stay together and see if we could make it work. It can work mate - i met my wife in the final year of Uni, and we stayed together even though we lived 100 mil...

Re: Thegreatglobalwarmingswindle

All natural explanations, be it the sun spot theory or the change in axis theory have all been countered. You do realise that sunspot activity isn't the only indicator of solar activity don't you? I love the way that as soon as some media whore of a scientist proclaims something as fact, some gulli...

Re: Croatia Vs England

If your saying Puyol is Better as a defender than Terry or Ferdinand, you obviously dont watch much champions League football. Puyol is a great defender, dont get me wrong. But Terry and Ferdinand are the best in the game You're severely deluded then. I watch a lot of Spanish football and Champions...

Re: Croatia Vs England

...but the thing is, at an International level your opponents also have a better quality of midfield, meaning that your attacking minded midfielders don't really cut it the same defending against their attack minded midfielders. Hence why the holding player is ever more important the higher the lev...

Re: Croatia Vs England

I think a truely brilliant midfielder should be able to attack and defend - otherwise what you are really talking about is a truely brilliant attacker. In all seriousnesss, i can totally see your point about having a holding player. Freeing up a central midfielder to just concentrate on attacking d...

Re: Croatia Vs England

Why is international level any different to PL level? PL should surely be higher because you're not limited on nationality and can build a team around ALL the best players in the world. That is assuming you are able to buy ALL the best players in the world :scratch: And who said I think PL teams sh...
