Re: Football Season 2016/2017

first two Barca goals, very jammy, 1st penalty iffy, 2nd a blatant dive, still PSG had two one on ones with the keeper in the second half and fluffed them both.

Re: Football Season 2016/2017

They score 5 legitimately fine goals. The first penalty is brutally harsh but it's got to be given. The second is a pretty blatant flop. He should never put his hand on him though, there's never any solid contact to send him flying but the ref see's his hand on him and there's no way he can measure that the way we can on the TV.

I'm not bothered though. No penalty and extra time would make sense if they scrapped the ridiculous away goals rule. Can't believe we still allow teams to go out without actually losing anything.

Re: Football Season 2016/2017

Whilst I agree that the first two goals where legitimate I certainly wouldn't class either of them as 'fine' both lucky/scrappy. The free kick and the winning goal would rank as fine, top class ones in my book.

Re: Football Season 2016/2017

Is Jose parking the bus? Five across the back line. Pitch is a real shocker, shouldn't be allowed in the comp if you can't provide a decent surface these days.

UEFA won't do diddly squat about these substandard pitches sadly Jim.

Re: Football Season 2016/2017

All the non league pitches I have seen in the FA Cup this season have been miles better than this.
Away goal will do nicely for a start though.

As usual MU's defending leaves a lot to be desired.

As usual? A very well taken goal but they haven't conceded anywhere near as much as one or two others.

12 less than your mob in the league for a start.

Re: Football Season 2016/2017

Did United actually play in Rostov's base? I remember playing Anzhi a few seasons ago and being lumped with Moscow's fake turf.

Re: Football Season 2016/2017

Apparently Rostov are moving to a new ground next season, an artificial pitch would have been better than that, thankfully no injuries.

Watching Lyon v Roma after seeing the Windies hammered. Thankfully at least one of these teams won't be in the next round.

BTW Den, the goal that United conceded was the first in this competition for 443 minutes.

I see the team that knocked Spurs out lost 5-2 at home to another Belgian side who are one place below them in their league.

When under pressure attack your most hated rivals.

Maybe for some people but I don't hate anyone, certainly not other football teams. I don't even mildly dislike Liverpool for that matter.

I just thought that as it was the first goal they had conceded in this competition for 443 minutes, and United have the second best defensive record in the Premiership which is far superior to Liverpools that your throw away line 'As usual' was way off the mark.

Lets call it friendly banter Jim and yes you are right in that MU's defence has improved and is considerably better then ours currently.

A bit like one of my close friends who is a Bradford fan and utterly despises them.
