    In the Pitch Howlers... Al Abbas hands FC Bundesbiers another defeat. But it appears both teams will advance to another round in the Cup.

    One could argue that he is the best central defender in the Premiership... (if not all of football).

    Hehehe. The first red card was a little harsh against stoke. Not quite sure it deserved a 2nd yellow for a red. The 2nd red card was definitely deserved. And then Remy missed the PK, crap, it could have been 6-1. We have Arsenal this weekend at home. Hope for a good showing.

    Good for Sunderland. But that was a little crazy with the other teams in/near the drop zone also picked up points. Fulham was the one that surprised me the most.

    An interesting stat. Of all of the entries in the Pitch Howlers, most of the teams qualified for the Cup and only two were eliminated in round one. Resusitation FC and nada nuevo... (who unfortunately lost by a single point).

    Ha, another EPL football afternoon on my sofa ahead of me on Sunday :tup:
    They air Newcastle - Arsenal and Chelsea against Liverpool. :)
    I was surprised to read that Spurs gave Tim Sherwood a 2 year contract extension as their headcoach.
    Have to admit never heard of him before, any opinons of him ? Can he handle the job ? :cautious:

    He was a good solid player as i remember, but this quote made me laugh. ''During his time at Blackburn Kenny Dalglish was told by his chairman "Why do you want to sign Zidane and Dugarry when we have Tim Sherwood?" :roflmao:

    Malky McKay relieved of his duties by a foreign owner whos football kmowledge you could write on the back of a stamp. Who allows these idiots to buy their clubs? The guy has changed the BLUEbirds shirts to RED, changed their badge, and now sacked the best manager they've had... probably ever.

    Rumour has it last season he actually asked Malky why David Marshall had failed to score... Marshall is a goalkeeper.

    One of your Clubs legends Derek Duggan wrote a book, it had a chapter called what Chairmen know about Football it was a blank empty page.

    Ahh 'The Doug', I cant imagine how much he would be worth in todays market, speed to frighten defenders, shooting to frighten goalkeepers and a face to frighten the kids in the crowd.

    Vincent Tan is an idiot. I had a feeling Malkey new it was coming. It would have been funny had he told the players to put on the blue jerseys in that last game. Vincent would have had a heart attack.

    Thrilling opening game this morning. 3 goals in like 5 minutes.

    So far the opening half of the next games are a bit slow.

    I had money on Hull. I was breathing easy after the 2nd goal.

    Do doubt. That was a good choice. Much safer than betting on Schalke.

    Absolutely. I hope those players form some sort of protest and put on their blue jerseys, at least during pregame warmups. Just to make a point.
