    Just when it looks like Man U has the match in the bag, Sturridge puts one in....

    Some of the games I went to worked like this; if there weren't enough breaks in play for commercials, the officials on the field would halt play for a "commercial time out" and the players would stand around waiting for the refs to start play again.

    Well guys, I am still disappointed and sad how it all ended for the Packers.
    I agree what PackerFan71 wrote - the 49ers were the better team but I still cant believe that we were unable to stop that "One-Trick-Pony" Kaepernick. :mad:
    The same play, again, again and again....we did not a have a Defense on the field and I dont know if it was terrible playcalling by Capers, bad execution by our Defense or both :rolleyes:
    When we talk about playing time - there is a possibility to watch the "condensed" game with my game pass. That means every single play without commercials. Every game is about half an hour, thats it.;)
    All the commercials are a mess, and I agree with PackerFan71 again.
    Its a cultural thing and one of the main reasons why Amercian Football wont find more than a small niche in soccer-dominated countries over here in Europe.
    Aaah - Arsenal against City now, I should switch on my TV ! ;)

    Yeah i think we all are Nessie to score 31 points on the road in the playoffs and still lose says everything about our QB and the Defence. One of them is Elite the other is somewhat less than. Its funny because alot on the Niners board were really worried about the game thinking it was time for some payback from game one.:rolleyes: Not good enough really, i think there will be a fair amount of changes in the post season.
    Kapernick for me is really unusual, some say hes just an accident waiting to happen or he's a game changer i'm not so sure as yet time will tell.
    Yeah time for some Footy up the Arse!;)

    World Cup ive almost forgotten what that is.;) I think the team is better than the results suggest, its a double edged sword for the fans. If he gets a decent run together it wouldnt suprise me if hed be away to the next big team in need of a manager like Smith and Mcleish did.

    "...forget that 110 % nonsense..." :D - I like him!
    Seems to be a a nice guy and he definitely knows what he is talking about. His career speaks for itself ! :tup:

    Well, modern football with media, lots of money and all the expectations very often put too much pressure on young players.
    Not all of them can stand it, do you remember Sebastian Deisler, ever heard of him ? Highly talented, played for Bayern Munich and the German National Team. He couldnt stand the pressure and his injuries anymore, developed a depression and finished his career.
    Other young players try to escape by going out and drinking alcohol and therefore waste their talent. Clubs should give young players more time to develop. And sometimes I think a salary cap for young players could help as well to keep them down to earth.

    Hope for Chelsea ? :eek:;)

    Thats the thing i like about Strachan hes honest and does not BS you, the Tartan Army love him always have done so i hope it goes well for him. He also nearly played in Germany, Cologne signed on a pre contract when he was with Aberdeen. Then Maure stepped in and grabbed him. Remember this one from the Group of Death 86?

    A young unadvised kid kicking a football about for £25,000 per week is madness. And an accident just waiting. Young players should be educated better by teams and not paid anywhere near that amount of money. What i call pressure is an out of work man with three kids and a wife to feed and a rent to pay that's pressure. Most Footballers don't know how lucky and spoiled they are, the real world does not exist for them. Seb Deisler yes that name rings a bell shame he was good from what i remember.
    I live in hope Jose returns to the Bridge well i can dream.;)

    Sometimes dreams come true, I am sure Chelsea will be his No. 1 option if he returns to England.
    I guess Abramovich still has his mobile phone number !? ;)

    Have you heard the latest about Rangers? due to league reconstruction they could face another season in Division 3 (they are leading by a mile) so their crazy owner now apparently wants out and to join the English league at the lowest level. Hes either mad or a genius.
