Re: The Official Football Thread

I like Ligue 1 for the unpredictability. PSG might just screw that up so I'm pleased with the finish in France.

Re: The Official Football Thread

who would have thought three years ago (when french football was dominated by marseille, lyon, bordeaux) that we'd have a top three of montpellier, psg and lille

Re: The Official Football Thread

Liverpool are struggling to get high-profile managers to remain interested in the job.

How the "mighty" have fallen.

Re: The Official Football Thread

as an everton fan i will be delighted if liverpool sign martinez
Lol how sad that Liverfool are looking to sign a manager who had an average season with Wigan of all clubs. Are they attempting to become a mid-table club now? Seems that ever since they've not been able to taste any Champions League or Europa League football their goals have been lowered with each season. Next thing you know and they might chuck a West Ham or Newcastle and get relegated. :D

Re: The Official Football Thread

Hahaha so far Guardiola, Capello, Rodgers, De Boer, Klopp has turned them down. Pray they get martinez. At least they'll have experience when it comes to battling relegation that way

Do you have any decent youngsters on the fringe or in the Reserves?

Decent season review this by Sky Sports:

Re: The Official Football Thread

As a United fan I want Leighton Baines during this transfer window. He's such a classy player and since he's 27 he should be at his peak as a footballer. I'm sure Everton will let him go at a reasonable price :D

Great replacement for Evra at left back.

Re: The Official Football Thread

Glad to see Cabaye and Ben Arfa make the final 23 for the French in Euro 2012.

We're being heavily linked with Debuchy who is also in the squad.

Re: The Official Football Thread

gourcuff who was probably france's number 1 player at the last world cup is no longer able to make the euro squad
Not too difficult to be a good performer in that particular squad. 2010 was a disaster for France.
