    It's different tho. Plus United are piss poor, the only reason they manage to still challenge for the title is Ferguson.
    And Brian Kerr is in tears.

    Some standards you have.

    They're still amongst the top 5 or 6 sides in Europe for me, with Barša, Madrid, Juve, Dortmund, and Bayern.

    Yes because of Ferguson, that was my point. City not ahead of them?

    I thought your point was that they were piss poor.

    City are an enigma if ever there was one, and Sheikh Mansour might come to see them as the white elephant they are sooner rather than later. Wouldn't be beyond the realms of possibility if all they end up having to show for their money is a solitary league title and one FA Cup. FFP will hit them harder than anyone else in the EPL.

    My point is that they have fairly average players (piss poor overstatement to emphasis that point) very average defenders (bar Vidic) average ageing midfield and good strikers.

    My point was with anyone else in charge they would probably be just challenging to get into the Champions League never mind going for the league title every year
    And Brian Kerr is in tears.

    We haven't played in the new stadium yet. We haven't played competitively in Athlone since 1996. Way too long

    As Benitez drove into Chelsea's training ground to take his first session this morning, there was a solitary Chelsea fan standing outside with a homemade 'Rafa Out' sign. That's surely a record?

    Brian Laws in a bit of erm 'trouble'.

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/foo...Holocaust.html

    Brian Laws said his team's defending was 'as bad as the Holocaust'

    Brian Laws has been forced to apologise after labelling his team's defending as 'as bad as the Holocaust'.
    The Scunthope United manager sparked a furious reaction from BBC radio listeners when he made the ill-thought remarks following Saturday's 4-0 defeat at Doncaster.
    Laws' comments come on the same weekend sections of West Ham's support at Tottenham were heard chanting the name of Adolf Hitler and making hissing noises in reference to the gas chambers.
    But speaking in a statement on the Iron's website, he said: 'I would like to apologise. The use of the word was not intended to cause offence and was used in the heat of the moment, in the frustration of the defeat.
    'It was a poor choice of language to define those emotions and wasn't meant in the true meaning of the word.'
    Laws' remarks and the actions of some at White Hart Lane has once again brought the issue of racism in football to the fore.
    And reaction to the sorry incidents has been condemned by Board of Deputies of British Jews.
    In a statement, they wrote: 'The Board of Deputies of British Jews utterly condemns and is dismayed by reports of antisemitic chanting by West Ham United fans at yesterday’s match against Tottenham Hotspur.
    'Antisemitism has no place in football or society in general. For football fans to use Holocaust imagery and chants glorifying Adolf Hitler is grossly offensive to the Jewish community and is a stain upon the character of British football.

    Thrashed: Scunthrope United were soundly beaten by Doncaster on Saturday


    'This in the same week that Tottenham fans were attacked in Rome in an apparently antisemitic attack.
    'Events at White Hart Lane yesterday and comments on Saturday by the Scunthorpe United manager describing his team’s defending as being "as bad as the Holocaust" confirm that this phenomenon is not confined to the Continent.
    'Clearly there is either a lack of understanding or a lack of compassion within some sections of the British football world about these issues; a lack of understanding or compassion which needs to be addressed.
    'We will be writing to the Football Association to urge them to punish those responsible for these chants and to take further steps to rid our national game of these slurs.'

    So, instead of going to football games. The folks over at Boards.ie play draft matches against each other, picking an 11 from the Premiership and outlining why they'd beat each other, etc.

    Here's one of there games. http://www.boards.ie/vbulletin/showt...p?t=2056817437

    Dunno whether to laugh or cry
