The FOOTBALL Thread (2007-2008)

Recommended Posts

It's that time of year again. The football is over (boo), but the new season just a few months away (hurrah!).

 

The Premiership fixtures for the coming season will be released today and posted below.

 

Predictions and useless footie talk in this new thread!

 

I think this next season it's going to be close. Liverpool will, WILL, be stronger in the league. Top 3 of Chelsea, Liverpool, United (in alphabetical order, hopefully in a different order come May).

 

-------------------------------

 

Tons of previous footie talk for the 06/07 season can be found here in "The FOOTBALL Thread (06/07)

What's your prediction for Norwich? Canaries is a name designed to instill fear into the mightiest opponents.

 

If they don't score the FA Cup, my hopes will rest with Liverpool.

The new season will see the rise once more of Arsenal (if we have enough players left to field a team that is lol.gif)

 

We need a bit more time to see who buys who. United seem to have bought some really exciting new young players. Whether they gel or not or "do a Veron" remains to be seen of course.

In todays something or other report

 

 Quote:
Mourinho told Chelsea's official magazine: "I think five teams will be fighting for the title.

 

"I put Tottenham there because they have a group of good players and I don't know why they don't belong to the fight. We are confident.

 

Now that is just silly.

Man City to be owned by Thailand and maybe run by Sven!!

"Prospective Manchester City owner Thaksin Shinawatra has confirmed he has held talks with Sven-Goran Eriksson about City's vacant manager's job.

 

It follows BBC Sport revealing on Wednesday that the former England coach has been offered the job providing the former Thai PM completes his takeover."

 

I'm just glad it's not my team. It will be fun to be able to ridicule Sven once more though when he has nothing to do with anything you care about ;\)

The deal would comfortably make Eriksson City's highest paid manager and equates to more than three times what his predecessor Stuart Pearce was earning at the club. It will also not escape the notice of the FA that the figures roughly equal the £6,500-a-day the Swede has recently been paid as part of his severance deal after leaving the England job last summer.


Question is, how on earth does he manage it?

Yes, dreaming.

He has this ability of being extremely boring, not very good at getting results, having scandals - and then getting huge pay offers. That is annoying but as you say it might be fun having him in the Premiership and shattering the dreams of all those City fans ;\)

Come on Sven! Be a rival to Sir Alex! Well you can try at least.

 

Did Eriksson ever get impressive results anywhere? It is all very strange that he can get these offers.
