    Coutinho off to Barcelona took longer than expected and was inevitable. Just when Liverpool seemed to have their attack sorted they will have to go back to square one as usual.

    He was one of many expected to leave the Premier League and it cannot be long until Eden Hazard is snapped up from a very under performing Chelsea side.

    Harry Kane off to Real Madrid looks a certainty but not in January of course.

    Congratulations to Charlie Cheswick on his Forest side knocking the defending champions and record holders Arsenal out of the FA Cup, United in the next round?

    We'll find out tomorrow!

    Forest and that ground of theirs should always host Premier League football in my view. Time for Arsenal to realise that they held onto Wenger for too long (but please let him stay).

    Don't talk nonsense. The rags will be at home to Newport or some other division 4 side. Nailed on.

    Meanwhile, City will get another Premier League side. They are warming the balls as I type.

    Hahaha, every football fan says that but you know full well that rule only applies to Chelsea.
    When was the last time they had a tricky away game in any of the cups?
    Glad you survived New Years!

    Brighton-Palace FA Cup game tonight will try the new camera technique where the referee can watch situations on a screen placed by the pitch.

    Great game between the two City's, Manchester and Bristol in the "league cup". Return leg might be a classic cause at 2-1 to the mancs the tie is far from over.

    Championship sides showing once again how football should be played and what can happen if you dare go for it.

    I was half asleep during the Chelsea-Arsenal game tonight and those two sides sure can pass the ball about without ever creating anything worth watching.

    Those Chelsea fans really look stuck in time and a swedish journo wondered towards the end of last year if it's not about time they grow up cause they were the saddest middle aged men he had ever seen.

    During the game it was obvious that a small number of fans are singing and the rest are just sat there looking miserable and if the quiet ones are those the grew up perhaps the game need more fans that never did.

    Thank you! Only just seen this, last weekend was the first time in about three years when it wasn't completely shit to support Forest. We've got our shiny new manager starting today, I think he'll do well.

    So City failed to remain unbeaten all season like Arsenal did so they will have to do with the trophy on the right and not the one on the left:


    The Liverpool defence is more leaky than the Titanic but did what few other sides have done this season, turned up against City.

    Chelsea goalless yet again and Arsenal losing yet again.

    Dubbed the greatest game ever and shown again in 2009 on swedish tv to celebrate 40 years of english football on swedish televison, this more than anything is a great tribute to Cyrille Regis:

    The greatest game ever? By whom. You?

    URBANUS Guest

    It has been called that for ages here in Sweden and abroad. For some reason it became a game everyone who was around then remembered and made a reference to.

    Of the Saturday games shown abroad from the english league this one remained in the memory of a lot of people from people that watched it on tv to journalists.

    This is the thing with some of you football fans that you have no respect for the game and other clubs and are so completely soaked up by who you support that you cannot even listen to other fans and actually learn something.

    If you had googled the game it would have actually come up as "the greatest game ever" but of course with a question marks cause that was the view of the people back then and still to this day many still consider it the best game ever from the english league.

    I know what you're gonna say about a link to DM but that's just an example and the reason for the article is that the game just stuck in a lot of peoples minds all over Europe and of course in England as well.

    It is a sorry state of affairs when football fans of today cannot look outside of their own little insecure box and just take it for what it is, a sentiment shared from way back when a game happened to entertain a lot of people and create a long lasting memory which was why swedish tv showed it in 2009 when they celebrated 40 years of a show called "Tipsextra" who showed live games from England since 1969 and Wolverhampton-Sunderland 1-0 was the first of those games.

    Interesting post that. Thanks
    The previous question was genuine x

    URBANUS Guest


    As stated in a previous post they celebrated 40 years of english football on swedish television and not 40 years of "Tipsextra" cause with time that state tv run show lost the rights as commercial channels took over.

    URBANUS Guest

    Oh ok, I take your word for it.

    You're obviously not one of those fans then!

    URBANUS Guest

    A very safe ride to 3 points tonight for United and the break and rest in Dubai had done them a world of good.
