Getting sick of the Wolves love-in, touting them like they're some kind of great white hope. Sure, they were good in the Championship (although Reading, Newcastle and Leicester all got promoted with more points and goals scored in the last ten years or so), but Fulham were much better over the second half of the season.
Lots of bitching last week about how unlucky they were to lose - when they hit the woodwork three times and conceded an unlucky own-goal - yet somehow they were tactical geniuses yesterday to get a draw against Man City yesterday - who hit the woodwork three times and conceded an unlucky goal that was handed into the net.
Still, I hear they're soon to be mixing it with the big clubs of Europe...
Clapton CFC away kit:
Shocking dive from the quaffered poser
This - they’ve been bought by a Chinese conglomerate but people are acting like they’re plucky promoted underdogs.
That’s football now: no money, no results.
Played 5-a-side on and off with an ex-Clapton player (not naming names, I don't think he was supposed to be ruining himself in the off-season, he's not listed in the current squad though) for the last few months. Stupidly hard shot (just like mine) although he managed his with almost zero backlift.
Amazing just how outclassed everyone else felt with him playing. The gulf in ability, even to a non-league amateur like him, was obvious; especially as he seemed to only bother to put in about 20%.
Brilliant to see us playing the way we are at this stage of the season, still a long way to go but I fucking love what I am seeing ... I, personally, think it was a peno, the elbow in the face on Giroud nullifies the Toon goal for me so we'll just call it 0-1 for the haters...
Libpool's to loose... #sic
I think at that level there's not a lot of control about what players do outside of their clubs.
There are a lot of players from the Isthmian League, ESL and other leagues at that level playing in Hackney Marshes on Sundays as well.
A couple of years ago I came up against Shomari Barnwell, who at that time had left Clapton for Dagenham and Redbridge, on a Sunday- he definitely shouldn't have been playing Sunday League!
Blimey - Lindelof is next level appalling. United are a shambles at the back.
Three games in, not even the end of August and United's title challenge is over. You can't ask for more than that. P45 in the morning...
ffs are United the new Arsenal,
well played Spurs though
After a close first half, we’ve put them to the sword. Couple of close shaves but Toby’s the best centre half out there with verthonghen close behind..
Moura’s been class. The pace, the close control and the finishing. “Like a new signing”
First time I’ve seen Fred. He’s an absolute liability.
Don’t think Spurs have been all that in all honesty. United have made them look good but much more to come from them.
Big Fat Sam waiting by the phone for the call from Woodward.
He'd probably turn him down.
FWIW I think they'll give Mourinho until next Sunday (away to Burnley), then sack him over the international break.
I know JJ rates Woodward, but he's a plum isn't he?
Who is really responsible for the signings?
Jose is responsible for the football obvs.
Mou as humble as ever...
What a nutcase... It's like seeing your ex outside a pub, pissed as a fart, shouting at passers by...
the only " good thing " about thrushy teams was their ability to defend and their solidity
he can't even park the bus these days
vvd > toby
Yep, the same ex everyone told you was a nutter when you were with her, but you wouldn’t listen...
The teams that finish above spurs each year then go into a decline (Leicester, then Arsenal, then Chelsea, then Man U, etc.), but Spurs keep finishing 3rd. Surely that’s impossible?
