Would prefer they spend more to get all La Liga games live but that is highly doubtful as no one gives a toss about La Liga outside of Real and Barca.

Big London grudge match on Friday morning in the EPL

Irons v Spurs

Or as the Forum will know them Happy's Hammers v Hobbos' Hotspurs

COYI

Lets hope Spurs don't get an illegal goal through an offside like they did this morning and West Ham score the winner in the last minute of extra time like they did this morning

Hopefully if what is being reported is true in regards WBA's Jake Livermore they find and ban the West Ham fan involved for life

Disgraceful ,taking a potshot at a player over the death of his baby is well and truly below the belt

There is good natured sledging and there is this , really crossed the line imo

Never thought West Ham and the Wests Tigers would have something in common

At the Tigers you hop on the bus and West Ham have parked the bus with a 9-0-1 attacking formation

Dirty Spurs as usual , WHU player goes down with a serious injury and is accepted you play the ball out of play so player can get looked at , Spurs decide to go score

No faking injury , he was immediately replaced

Hobbo 1 v Happy 1 , both goals absolute screamers Obiang's goal must be from about 30 metres out

I can only guess that Hobbo's tears have wrecked his keyboard

That combined with the 5th Test and he might be stuck in the foetal position :lol:

Moyes is a confusing beast , says he wants to concentrate on the EPL yet instead of losing the FA Cup game , gets a draw and adds a game to a squad that is already undermanned and battling to avoid relegation

Soccer Australia and the next coach must be concerned with the Tim Cahill situation

If he can't find a new club in the next 3-4 weeks I can't see how Australia can take him to the World Cup

And Australia without Tim Cahill better find a goal scorer real quick

VAR has taken another step towards being used at the 2018 World Cup , it was used for some games during the last round of the FA Cup and officials were impressed supposedly

But how crazy is this , why use it at some FA Cup games and not others ??

And people thought the ARL commission were useless as tits on a bull

With the new manager being a short term proposition I can see Cahill going. I doubt BVM will care what happens after he leaves and will select the best 23 players for now. I think Cahill will fit in with the physical style of football he will look to play. Apart from his goal scoring, Cahill's next best attribute is how hard he likes to go into a challenge.

Apart from a couple of good years as the Dutch coach he has been very underwhelming as a coach in Europe

Most Australian will read he has coached a side that made a WC final and think he is the bees knees

Far from it in my opinion , couldn't tie Guus's shoes in my humble opinion

Turned the Saudis around. Points for that.

Ensured direct qualification from the same federation as us. Does that mean he is at least a step up from what we had?

There were other candidates around, however he would have 1st hand knowledge of the national side (as opposition coach)if not the players below, and probably was not asking as much as some of the big names.

Unless he takes Australia deep into the knockout phase, he is in a no win situation.
