I think the second 1 is more accurate.
Unbeliverpool !!!!!!! It's absolutely unbeliverpool !!
I don't get it.

@Zilch YOUUU'LLL NEVVVAA WALLLKK ALOOOONE(ALOONE) on this issue...i dont get it either
Sony not renewing its sponsorship contract with FIFA sighting lack of transparency. FIFA starting to lose its grip on Qatar.

So the only building standing in the way of Tottenham's new 400million ground has been ravaged by a fire. "The building belonged to the last remaining land owner on site next to White Hart Lane marked for re-development." The fire stopped shy of White Hart Lane. The police are already treating it as Suspicious.

Daniel Levy was in Barbados. Perhaps an alibi?? Who knows, but you can't deny that its a tad suspicious
+3
Yeah definitely looks suspicious..looks like Levy is Breaking Bad
+1
It's hilarious.(I'm going to hell) ;)
this commentator is on crack

I thought he just started crying after that goal. Very passionate guy!
+1
the German league has that guy and we have Gary Neville

http://youtu.be/d6RG6yxgeFE
i want what he's having
FIFA Pro World XI GK shortlist:
1. Claudio Bravo
2. Gianluigi buffon
3. Casillas
4. thibaut courtois
5. Manuel Neuer

LOL!! How did Casillas get into this list ?? I think Neuer or Courtois will make it anyways.
+2
casillas? lmao
+8
casillas? did he even play 20 games last season for real? k. navas is probably deserve the shortlist more with the season he had with levante and costa rica.
^ he played like all the game in every other competition except the domestic league i think.

but at the end of the day doesnt really matter as we all know who will win this one
diego lopez or whatever his name is got shafted.

where did bravo even play? how did he end up on this shortlist?
+1
how did David De Gea not make it
^ Maybe because did not win anything last season united and not a regular for national team as well.
@Sif real sociedad or whatever its spelt and chile
Where the hell is Samir Handanovic?!?!
+1
Where is the AS Roma GK Morgan Di Sanctis? Their defense was rock solid last year.
People are seriously idiots if they think Casillas is still world class quality. He hasn't been anything close to that for a few seasons now.
+1
Neuer is going to win or the only one who should win, I mean Bundesliga title, UCL semis, a world cup title, golden glove award.

What da hell did Bravo win last season? How was he even added?
+2
Neuer will win it by miles, just like his clearances from the middle of the pitch lol :P Pure sweeper keeper !
+2
^ https://pbs.twimg.com/media/B1tGQ1gIYAAE9PD.jpg:large
Casillas and Buffon got in because of reputation
lol i think they decided they needed a keeper from barca and madrid. i don't know how casillas and bravo got on this list, what the hell?

ok casillas won CL but he was pure s**t (dropped for league games basically permanently) and he actually almost cost them the title, mistakes at every corner (pun intended). even the goal atleti scored in the final was his mistake. he followed that up with an absolute nightmare of a world cup, with reaming/loss vs netherlands probably the nadir of his international career.
lol casillas, he was just dreadfull in the world cup
Ok, this is kind of irritating me, on MOTD, Sky and Bruce (Bruce i can understand) have all been harping on the fact that Vertonghen went down easily on Ramirez's challenge (which resulted in Ramirez getting a straight red and changed the game).

Here's the incident
http://tinyurl.com/pwbm7qb

MOTD especially, called Vertonghen an embarrassment for going down the way he did, and that he milked it, they also said it wasn't a red.

Firstly, I thought that was a red, you just can't hack at a player like that and get away with it, its fair game for the ref. Secondly, what the hell did Vertonghen do in the first place to deserve that? and how does he avoid not going down by that challenge? (it's essentially a scissor tackle). Also love the fact that they don't even recall the Barkley dive which imo was actually embarrassing. Learn something from your brother Phil, poor punditry imo (from both those guys).

Thoughts?
+5
Vertonghen kind of does provoke him. He could've just walked away from Ramirez but decided to try and go through him with his knee. It would've been very hard for the linesman to see that though, you need a replay. I don't think it should've been a red because I don't think there is any way you can call it violent conduct. Wilshere headbutted Fellaini yesterday and didn't even get a card. Very harsh on Hull.
+3
I find Vertonghen's actions kind of irritating but he's within his right to do it in my opinion. Gaston Ramirez mostly brought it on himself by being an idiot.
+1
Yes! Totally agree. I was getting really annoyed watching that with them calling him 'embarrassing.' What did he do apart from trip over which any one would do if they had their leg caught in scissor like tackle? Its not like he rolled around on the ground clutching his face. However, whilst MOTD was perfectly happy to call Vertonghen 'embarrassing' repeatedly, yesterday they spent about 10 seconds saying that Barkley's blatant, disgraceful dive was 'disappointing.' Seems like MOTD, and other english media, are intent on perpetuating this fallacy that English players don't dive and that european players are whinges and cheats. Very irresponsible punditry and very unfair on Vertonghen I thought.
+7
Wilshere headbutted Fellaini yesterday is a better case for Red card..But he is English and the referees have that soft-corner to mamma boys.
+2
Yh, but Wilshere should'v been showed a red card too, Fellaini actually saved him by not going down.

Lol, saw another angle and yes you are right, Vertonghen does give him a slight nudge with his knee. But i still think Ramirez hacks his foot at him too (even with his hand), it might look worse than it actually was, but i think the intent from Ramirez's part was violent enough to merit a red.

But more so then the actual incident i was more annoyed at the MOTD pundits as i thought they had a real unfair go at Vertonghen.
+3
It's a red card, Ramirez is a f*****g selfish idiot who should've walked away but through his own selfish negligence put himself before his team mates. They were coasting, well on top, wtf was he thinking? You can not defend actions like that on the pitch.
+1
These old school pundits don't seem to understand the concept of intent, at times.

As far as the actual incident is concerned, Vert did provoke him(even that wasn't enough to warrant that kind of reaction IMO) but honestly, there was no need for Gaston to petulantly kick out.
Calling Vert's reaction as embarrassing is hilarious.
I hope you guys recall last season's Europa league sending off against Dnipro, where Vert went down like he was shot. That was well and truly embarrassing.

We can probably list atleast 10 incidents every week where players try to make the most of an incident with far more embarrassing reactions.
+2
Pundits are embarrassing, they always disagree with the refs decision, I guarantee had Ramirez not got sent off they would be saying he's lucky to avoid the red card.

There is no consistency with pundits!
+2
Lashing out at a player off the ball is a red card offence all day long. Such display of temper has no place on a football pitch with all age groups watching.
There is boxing and other martial arts which is more appropriate for such behaviour.
+2
this just reminds of beckham red card against simeone
+1
When I was watching the game the pundits were saying it's likely not a red because you have to establish that the contact was

1) intentional (no qualms there)

2) dangerous or violent conduct (debateable)

The second one is tricky because you can push someone and not even get carded. The kick would have to be of sufficient force or placed in a dangerous area to establish it was violent conduct, or otherwise prove the intent was to harm.

I have to look at it again but point 2 might not have been met.
+1
@SIF: Same goes for headbutts and attempted headbutts. I am sure you must have been rooting for a Wilshere red card. :P

The rule allows for active ref intervention.

I agree w.r.t. point 2. The term 'violent conduct' does need to be replaced and there should be specificity(in definition and subsequent punishment for it) when it comes to such acts

Even the official Bundesliga YouTube channel acknowledges Lord Bendtner

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-gEf3SoEJCA
+1
Dear god, what a goal.
Is he number 3? Lol!
+2
"More goals in the Bundesliga than Ronaldo, Messi, Ibra, and Neymar combined"
"Haters might say that they never played in the bundesliga"
+3
I cant believe Arsenal sold him.
+6
he scores when he wants , he scores when he wants .... Lord Bendtner he scores when he wants
+1
#3 is for how many Ballon D'Ors he will win this year.
+5
Lord Bendtner using powers beyond messi or ronaldo to make the ball bounce of both defenders into his path..just out of this world
+4
I'm speechless at his talent!
Hmohammed Liverpool is not named Liverpool-City
He meant a match between Liverpool and Man City...

Lol

dude... really?

EPIC FAIL level 9000 !

....awaiting for him to post one thread regarding this^

After watching Crystal Palace - Liverpool match I can point out things that you can see only in Premier League.

- Team spirit/atmosphere on stadium - The fans cheering for their team for the whole match, regardless if they're loosing or not, that is amazing thing that never gets boring. To describe it more: Allen after challenge with Bollasie had blood all over his back and neck - he wouldn't notice that if referee wouldn't call him to change the shirt. Here you can see that the players are absolutely concentrated on game - giving 100% or more effort.

- The result isn't decided until the final whistle. In many matches in PL a loosing team was able to fight back when they were behind and eventually they got the win.

+2
Really?
+2
This is not exclusive to the epl. The German league also have these characteristics. If not for Bayern, they would also be the most competitive league.
+3
Palace have amazing fans, I could feel the atmosphere just watching it on my lap-top, it was that good. haven't felt that way since Liverpool-City back in april.
+6
I honestly think the English teams (the big ones, anyway) have arguably some of the worst crowd atmospheres in Europe. You compare it to the crowds in Germany, etc and it's just not as impressive imho.

Even yesterday against United, towards the end, half the Arsenal fans had left. And this isn't a dig at Arsenal, I've seen it happen at Old Trafford too. I feel like the Top teams have horrible home crowds. Their away crowds are a different story though.
+9
Yes, actually, the best atmosphere is on small teams stadiums. I've seen somewhere that Tottenham has the most quiet crowd, and that is IMO still one of the better teams. But really, I've seen a few matches where fans were cheering for their team even when they didn't play well, lol.
Two or three seasons ago, there was a match where fans almost manage to lead their team to a draw, but in final minutes the opponents, who were playing better the whole time, scored. I dont know if the atmosphere on stadiums changed to worse since that time.
+1
I think the difference stems largely, or at least to some significant degree, from ticket prices and the respective nations' economy.

I imagine Spain's poor showing can be attributed to the country's terrible economy. Not many Spaniards can find the means to attend their local football matches, at least when compared to the English or German leagues.

Ticket prices aren't always reasonable either. People rather spend what they have to provide for their families than to attend a football match they can very well watch from the comfort of their own homes.

As for the apparent lack of boisterous support among the top clubs, namely the ones in England and Spain, that can be attributed to a number of reasons.

I believe fan expectation and youth unemployment play the biggest roles.

Many fans who come to the (insert prestigious venue here) to watch their team play do so with the expectation that their team will put on a show (i.e. good football, high score-line, and lots of star service). They come to enjoy a show, not to be an actively engaged participant, hoping that their lively support will propel the team forward against a difficult rival. Most of the crowd, away fans being an exception at times, are rather subdued. For them it's simply entertainment, a way to kill some time.

Another reason for the uneventful scenes is probably related to youth unemployment. In Spain, for example, the level of youth unemployment is catastrophic. The youth are generally the one's who emit the most energy. They are the most animated, engaged, and spirited. How are they going to fill the stands if they don't have the means to attend the matches? Like I mentioned previously, ticket prices aren't exactly cheap for the more prestigious clubs either.

Obviously my latter assumption could be false. Age demographics from attendances would need to be collected to be sure, and it might vary between and within countries.

The Bundesliga has a healthy model though. Without going into too much detail, the Bundesliga has effectively created a sense of belonging among its fans, and they have reasonable ticket prices as well. The youth are able to afford them, and I imagine they're the one's making the atmosphere in Germany very lively.
true,
arsenal, chelsea, united, city, we all have plastic fans. liverpool is still the real deal though.
+1
doesn't it cost more to go to a english championsihp game than a bundesliga one?
I think that standard ticket for a PL match costs 27£ - that is a hell lot of money converted to my country's currency.

Well other thing is that here is different economic situation than how is it in UK so ... you tell me if 27 pounds is too much money spent for seeing your favourite PL team or not.
