i actually thought it was funny and quite clever KGB, why you gotta be dat stricht?

jk, i know why, still..

So, this is how the transfer window works eh?

Men that's hilarious but unfortunately true
That's Goal.com, right?
SKY or BBC or ITV? which do you guys prefer for football coverage and why?
+1
BBC. As to why, I find ITV commentators too emotional. I'd rather watch those commentators who can keep their emotions completely in check. Almost monotonous is my preference. BBC comes closest to that imo.
+1
Sky my reasons are in the video below

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6lge8wx-9Vk
+1
Sky, because the have the one and only Gary Neville.
+1
BBC:MOTD
+5
Gary Nevile
BBC has the best highlights but awful punditry

Sky has decent highlights and the best punditry

Sky it is!
+5
^pretty much.

Bbc punditry is terrible
+1
I like Gary and MOTD on BBC, The highlights and interviews are great although they often have some terrible guest pundits e.g. Dion Dublin, Robbie Savage, Danny Mills.

Love G.Nev and King Henry on Sky althought Carra can sometimes be a bit annoying. Not a big fan of Souness, either.

ITV drive me mad with Adrian "knows sod all about football and has the personality of a damp cloth" Chiles.

Prefer Sky for coverage/analysis and BBC for highlights.
+1
I love BBC
Al Jazeera !
+2
@Deffyduck you will be glad to hear Adrian Chiles got sacked

MOTD is unsurpassable for me, it's just the tradition of waiting for it every year
+1
Sky for the commentary, BBC MOTD for the highlights
The wisdom that Gary Neville brought into his punditry made me seriously cry inside and kinda begs that he would replace Blatter.

He is a true professional.
New rule: If a player goes down holding his face and or clutching body part while crying and rolling on the floor because he's experiencing so much "pain" and gets right back up after the foul is settled, then that player should receive a yellow card for falsifying pain level, wasting the medics time as well as the fans time.
+15
Not a bad shout. You can tell when a player is hurt, and it usually involves grasping for the part of the body that is injured, which is usually not the face....
Also, on most serious injuries, you're going to be still (example from the game yesterday, a collision between Oscar and Henderson), not rolling around on the ground like a fish out of water.
+1
It's should be a rule. It's effectively simulation, time wasting and trying to get your opponent carded
+1
Should be ushered off field, like any player who requires treatment.
+3
Agree with Surajloks12345, remove them from the field.

Maybe in return, field a temporary substitute of maximum 5 minutes. If he really can't the field within 5 minutes, then replace him.

This game has become way too dramatic. Contact sport my ass, the level of the "Masculinity" of professional footballers on this sport has gone down to the point of women football team has shown much more sportsmanship.

The policy has became: "Simulation and creating minimal contact to earn short-cuts has been the way to go, either follow or be left behind".

We've fixed the goal-line issue, free-kick positioning, next should be this.. or maybe fix referring as a whole.
The irony of course is that many of these players come from countries where Machismo is very prevalent yet they will roll around crying for the world to see. Yet if you were to call them a girl or feminine they would try to tear your face off. Wish that machismo wasn't just for show and actually translated to the pitch.
+3
Also retrospective bans on players who dive in the box whether they receive penalty received a card or nothing happened.
Because FIFA allows diving, it has now literally become part of the game. Sh!t players who can't relay on their skills miss up the game for everyone. It is very sad to see teams/players resorting to this kind of pathetic method to win games.
+1
I just think about some of the tackles I receive on a weekly basis playing for my club and I'm no professional athlete. Bunch of drama queens, one arsehole raked his studs down my leg for "fun" while with blood dripping down my leg the ref waved play on and another ripped out my arm hairs to "distract me". I was blinded in 1 eye for 2 days from a ball to the eye socket(embarrassingly it was my own shot bouncing back off the keeper), had my hand stamped on and in general, had the s**t kicked out of me by big defenders almost every game, whether it be almighty swings at my foot to stop me shooting or elbows to the face for attempting to win the aerial ball. And that was just last season, my injury list could fill a book. Off the top of my head the worst ones are: 1 broken arm, 3 broken toes, 1 fractured foot, 1 damaged retina, 2 broken fingers, 2 ankle ligament tears(1 very bad) and a badly torn quad muscle.

It's part of the game, in the good old days they used to just get on with it, the game and players are becoming too precious.
+2
and then you've got this guy....

http://www.badassoftheweek.com/shelford.html

the story might be completely fabricated but I have seen rugby players get stitches on the sidelines and have dislocated digits/limbs popped back in so they can continue playing.
Mate rugby players, holy s**t. Here in Aus there was one bloke who played the entire 80 minutes of the grand final after fracturing his cheekbone in the first 5 minutes. Another hero during the season ran back on and played out the match with what was later diagnosed as a broken leg. That same nutcase played for the next 3 matches on that fractured leg. Some of the injuries they play through are insane.

In other news, that's a bloody brilliant article, worth a read, minus the excessively colourful language lol.
+1
yeah the language makes me wonder if it is real or not. I will have a look when I get home haha.

I do remember watching the international tests and an Aussie rugby player (cannot remember his friggin name!) got a nasty gash/laceration at the corner of his mouth. He had it stitched up and carried on playing, what a man....
Off topic. Anyone here follow AFL? I've only watched a few games but the things they allow is crazy...

http://youtu.be/QyFlnudTGg8

Edit:
This second vid is even crazier...

http://youtu.be/pdy_PcC_VCY
Yeh I watch it, it's a bit nuts. Watched both vids, they do worse stuff than that mate. Have you seen them take a really good mark? They take a running leap and climb up the guys back in studded boots sometimes. They're supposed to land their knees or legs on their back or shoulders which is also crazy lol, imagine that weight on your neck.. :/

The crowds for this sport are huge too, over 100,000 in some games.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ERTcZV7uTFU

^ That is perfectly legal and considered a brilliant catch rather than dangerous.

Rewind to the 1970s to 1990s and you'd find a very minor difference in football tackles and rugby tackles. Face it, our players have regressed into a bunch of babies. Though, with Stoke in the picture, I can hardly blame the players.
+1
^it is brilliant to watch, to be fair :D

but those brutal hits are ridiculous. There must surely be a higher fatality rate in AFL? There are elbows being thrown and clothesline arms being levelled at peoples necks and, with the speed these guys play at, people must get seriously and/or permanently injured?
Deffy, all head high tackles are heavily punished with fines and suspensions. These guys are massive mountains of flesh running at another musclebound meat head. Their bodies are braced for the impacts and therefore less likely to be injured badly, unlike football where the impact often comes out of nowhere and leaves you sprawled on the ground. They are often bruised and bloody but that's part of the game, my football coach used to say if you aren't bleeding from somewhere, you haven't put in enough effort lol. These rugby blokes wear the injuries and blood like a badge of honour.

There's been maybe 2 or 3 blokes in over 10 years of AFL and NRL that have suffered terrible injuries like spinal damage, being paralysed etc. Some of the players wear neck braces and head gear due to previous damage, it's just part of the rough and tumble nature of the game and every player accepts that.

To be honest they get more fines for what they do when they go out after playing. A few recent examples are fighting security guards, paying for hookers and let's not forget the idiot who took a piss on the side of a police car while drunk. Great role models that lot.
Well , considering the injuries, Zilch is correctly following Arsenal .lol :P

The best solution to diving would be , if the referee doesn't spot it , a 2-3 match ban . That should do well to start things off.
+1
Costa has been charged by the FA. and faces three match ban for his actions yesterday

Thank God. As much as I am sad that he will miss city match I am (for once) very happy that the FA was sensible in this situation. He just can't go around being as violent as this, in my opinion it is an utter disgrace the way he does this(Costa). It happens a occasionally but Costa crosses/d the line way too often for my liking. I'm also very happy this has happened now and not later where it might impact us much more. He needs to learn.
+9
FA was sensible in this situation only because he is a foreign player..The same applied for Suarez & Balo as well.

charlie adam is showing his rugby skills game after game without even getting a card or caution.
+2
Charlie Adam, good example lol. Did he get any punishment for strangling Alexis?
+2
Think he got a yellow, that's why there was no retro-active ban.

Adam just seems to get away with this kind of stuff.
+2
Well, obviously a yellow card is enough for attempted murder.. right lads?
+3
LOL There Will Be Trollers (There will be haters parody) Ft. Torres, Suarez, Pepe, Balotelli, Terry

Mi Collection es muy grande mi amigos!

BTW - big respect for most chelsea fans condemning the stamps. These look expensive and exquisite.


+11





+15
rotfl Costa Pops!
+3
He starts s**t up with players then falls rolling on the ground like the sissy bitch he is at the minor reaction from them. Way to act like a tough guy.
+5
Tell me when has he gone to the ground easily? He has been properly fouled on most occasions and has been unfairly labelled a diver when there have been far worse dives. If you can't take what he dishes out don't instigate him, Skrtel is no saint either my friend.

As for the stamp, don't you worry he'll get the punishment, Jamie Redknapp has personally called the FA to voice his concern. But of course the brilliant refereeing will continue to go unnoticed.
+11
Easily one of the top strikers defenders don't want to have to defend.
+1
Honestly, if you see the post match, Costa usually shares a hug/handshake with the opposition defenders (Shawcross, Ramos, Skrtel etc.) cause he respects the battle they gave him and they also know of the battle that Costa gave them.
+8
That punch from Fazio......
+1
Costa tries to act like the tough guy, but if someone who isn't afraid of him IE Henderson, Skrtel, stands up to him he doesn't do a damn thing.
+1
@ScouserDan, what do you want him to do? Bite Henderson and Skrtel?
+5
^Because he's not a fool. He knows once theres a scuffle, its over. Hit the reset button and back to the game. Taking it any further would result in suspensions. Everybody knows this, its why you don't see bench clearing brawls in football.

The man plays with emotion. Something most English players leave at the door. Which results in passionless games all the time. You can't blame Costa for being spirited. Defenders play with a hand on his shirt all the time. And he's pulled and grabbed every game. And as soon as he does it back, the whistle blows and he's booked. Yeah, thats fair...
+5
Costa is a fighter. I would go as far as to say that he is a thug on the pitch, but he treats everyone equally. Nothing personal, purely professional.

I don't think he acts like a sissy tbh. When was the last time he backed out of a fight?
+1
Costa is one of those rare breed players that will go that step to far for his team and have no problem doing it. Suarez, Terry, Gattuso, Keane etc. If they play for your team you love them and everyone else hates them. Wish we had one at Tottenham.

+5
@TheBokiya I would never want that, he could just fling big strings of snot at them.. oh wait he's already done that before in Spain.
+2
ScouserDan - "If someone who isn't afraid of him IE Henderson, Skrtel, stands up to him he doesn't do a damn thing"

Are you sure he dint do a damn thing to Skrtel?? :p And do you think he dint do a damn thing to Henderson because he was scared of him?? LOL! ok.
+2
Can someone embed this beautiful video for fellow liverpool fans

https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=788412541195643
Lol wtf Scouserdan, Costa backs down from no one, the complete opposite of what your saying. He doesn't do anything because hes not allowed to do anything but he sure as hell doesn't back off but gets right into their face
I hope Costa doesn't read your comment saying he backs down because he would probably try to purposely prove you wrong in the next match, haha it wpuldnt be pretty
Bazinga, Kaiba, Eeegay: i think Dan was referring to this awesome video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6C7dz1o55vw

and Bazinga, i dunno that you'll find many liverpool fans defending suarez's antics, we've taken off those red-tinted glasses cause he's not on the team anymore, just like you've got your blue-tinted ones cause costa plays for your team.
+1
So Bazinga are you trying to justify Costa's actions then because of previous stupid acts of Suarez?
