So no subs during injury time? so actual injuries can not be replaced? You'll have the player welfare nuts coming on then saying that the players will be forced to play when injured and so on..

You have to have subs and its a break in play, same as a player going down and holding his head, they are all using it to slow play, the ref aint a doctor and that's a medic's call tbf

Is that not the case when a team uses up all their subs anyway? You just have to deal with it and go a man down?

On Colm Parkinson's podcast the idea was floated of following Premier League sub rules in that you can only make subs at 3 distinct points in a match. Would there be many drawbacks to that?

I don't think it is 3 distinct points it is you can only make them on 3 occasions during a game.

Yea sorry that's what I meant. Not constricted to a point in the game but only on 3 occassions.

good in theory but what if someone gets injured and you've already used your 3 sub occasions?

Well that's my point above - you carry on with 14. The same that would happen if all subs were used by the 50th minute today. I think the PL operates that way too - down to 10 men and it's a case of hard luck.

That's if they have no subs left, if they do they can replace them whenever and if a player goes off with a head injury he also can be replaced with a temp sub

That's my point, the risk of not replacing an injured player is already there and does happen under the current rules. Don't think there's too much noise around player welfare in that regard at the minute. Not that I'm in agreement with no subs in injury time but its on average 2-3mins of time added (be interesting to know how much of that is actual playing time) so can't see the issue around player welfare. If you're injured you go off and go a man down - same as when all your subs are used currently.

So McEntee got two yellows and stayed on the pitch and Cross won the final.. but I suppose that was before Twitter

No its because Cross won comfortably, Crokes didn't and no one will ever know the outcome in that last period without that extra player they had, who was standing on the goal line.

It was a draw at the time of the sending off - no one will ever know the outcome in that last 10 minutes without the extra player Cross had, who was arguably their best forward.

For those that are saying the additional player didnít matter, have a look at the last seconds of the semi against Kerinís OíRahillyís, Kerinís needed a last second goal to win (or maybe it was to equalise), high ball dropped into the box was flicked on and who was on the goal line to catch the ball and prevent the goal, only the boul Mullin.

So what youíre saying is that in the dying minutes of the game when a ďflakyĒ Kilmacud where under pressure to keep out a last gasp goal, they learnt from their defeat against Kilcoo and did so with 15 players in the pitch and thus would have be capable of the same again against Glen?

Think youíve kind of contradicted yourself in proving they could defend last minute goal threats without the extra player.
But they didnítÖ

In the semi final they did. But there appears to be references to conceding in last years final as the reason the 16th man made a material difference but the more recently evidence overlooked.

Too young to remember anything pre Euro 96, so for me this was the best international tournament I've watched for excitement, surprises and pure entertainment. The final round of group stage matches was great fun. The final a fitting end to the tournament - I don't think I've enjoyed a match as much before and certainly was the best final I can ever remember from any tournament.

Argentina certainly got the rub of the green at various points in the tournament but don't think anyone could argue they didn't deserve to win it. Messi certainly deserved the golden ball this tournament and nice to see him finally get land the big one.

Some are still fixated on England?? England are beaten, gone home  after having achieved a bit part in the history of WC2022.

I heard some reported comments that the players want to go on and win the cup for Messi. Thatís sentimental nonsense, rather itís about time that Messi and the other players win it for Argentina. Thatís honor enough. Messi has underperformed in previous WC tournaments.

He won the golden Ball in 2014 hardly underperforming now

He wasn't even Argentina's best player that competition. Di Maria was. It was given to Messi because he is Messi.

AgreedÖhe was no where near his Barca formÖheís been much better this tournament

This is his best wc showing, Iíd have him down as the player of the tournament thus far

Yea, canít think of anyone really who has had as much influence.

Lol explains all the "Who is Ralf Ragnick?" articles at the time. If we're being honest, outside of Germany very few would have.


Did i say something even mildly humorous? Rangnick has been coaching in one of the top leagues in Europe for 4 decades and managed in the Champions league also. Would want to be living under a rock to have never heard of him before.

Good man  ;D

Read it how you want Mr. Freud but if you took it with an hilarious edge you'd be closer to the mark than anger. Don't support any soccer club but follow most sports keenly.

Rooney asked for a transfer as is his right under any free market. I found the outrage over this OTT. He was fully entitled to move companies if that was his wish. Never did he down tools or renege on his word. Ronaldo signed an eye watering contract and now refuses to do the job he's paid to do. Refused to come on in a game and called in sick at Fulham when he found out he wasn't starting. And has the added neck to run to Morgan and cry victim. I actually find it incredulous how anyone could side with him.

Your expletive laden rant would suggest otherwise  ;D ;D


I can imagine plenty especially for the work he did in Germany. Ronaldo said he's not even a coach even though Rangnick has been coaching or managing for 40 years.

Lol explains all the "Who is Ralf Ragnick?" articles at the time. If we're being honest, outside of Germany very few would have.

Few people have said it here.. It is just a complete lack of class and professionalism.

Yea that's it. His PR team have had a shocker. Surprised he hasn't been let go already.

It has been said here before on these interviews.

No one is shocked by what he has said about the club in general, the lack of investment behind the scenes, the lack of forward progress/ planning. All Utd fans knew these were issues and have been for a long time and part of the reasons the success has dried up. So there is absolutely no issue on him calling the club out on these things and in fact most fans would have been happy to hear this.

However when he went after ETH he crossed the line, it comes across as sour grapes because he doesnt fit into the plans of the current manager. Fans are finally seeing a structure and plan from the manager and more inclined to back him over a player who hasn't shown any kind of form this season.

Time for him to move on, shame the way it has ended but that's life at times.
Agree 100%. Slamming ETH was unforgivable, the rest was fair enough.
Had a cheap shot at Rangnick. Same with Rooney- only reason Utd's record goal scorer commented was because he's fat and ugly and jealous of the beautiful Ron, but of course he'd never say that wink wink. Pundits same- nothing to do with the fact it being their job to comment on football stories, no they comment on me me me me me me to become famous because I'm the most famous person ever blah blah blah. The interview , bits I've seen anyway are an embarrassment and show a total lack of class.

How many people had heard of him before he was appointed?

Really don't understand the outrage over the Rooney & Neville comments. If someone was telling others I wasn't great at my job and should be sidelined, I'd want to have my say too. Rooney the man who held the club over a barrel twice saying he was moving to City to get 350k.
He came in as a stop gap to be TD a year ago, didn't work out. Absolutely nothing to do with what's going on now. Cheap shot bringing him into it. Current manager not 5 minutes into the job so residual issues absolutely nothing to do with him either.

He refused to come on in a game, walked out of the stadium. Everyone is going to have an opinion on that (regardless of who you are) especially pundits and past players. Big difference between professional criticism and personal insults. Petty and complete lack of lass.

He would have been well aware of the training facilities etc before signing his £28m/year 2-3 year contract. Absolute BS it's suddenly an issue. I bet if he were playing every game with Maguire and Jones also starting central defence there wouldn't be a boo out of him.
 It's very simple, he's not near as valuable to the team as he thinks he is. Manager has enough cop on to know this too. So he has two choices, be happy to have a bit part or take a wage cut and f**k off elsewhere. But to still demand his 500k a week, refuse to play when he doesn't get his way, refuse to move if the money and "project" doesn't suit, and go running to Pier Morgan of all people to air his grievances. I'm sorry but the man is a tr**p.

I don't think it's comparable to what other players have done in the past. Keane did a pretty brutal punditry on his Utd team mates but it was genuine in that he felt Utd standards were not as they should be. I doubt Ronaldo gives a f**k who is on the team as long as he's first name. Looks like he's making up a whole load of excuses to explain his bad behaviour and total lack of professionalism.

Yes he scored 18 goals last year out of a total of 57. Utd's worst return in a long time. So yes he brings goals but it's not so straight forward and absolutely no way are these extra goals he brought. Utd would have got them from elsewhere had he not been around. That is beyond doubt, otherwise a Utd less Ronaldo are a 39 goals per season team. Utd being managed by Stevie G doing his best to sabotage them would score that in their sleep.

You seem very worked up and angry over this whole thing, much like the English media.

Multimillionaire Portuguese footballer with a huge ego comes out with an egotistical interview and, with the exception of the Ten Haag comments, says things most people agree with and people get massively angry and worked up over it. What else did anyone expect from Ronaldo? To quietly accept a role on the bench? It's Ronaldo. You've said yourself, it's all about him. So why the anger?

Did you have the same outrage at Rooney when he demanded to move to City because he didn't like Ferguson's transfer strategy and direction the club was going?

Rising interests rates to quell inflation that is caused by an energy crisis. You wonder how these people get the jobs and positions that they have.

OK then, tell us how they should dampen inflation. Maybe give Ukraine to Putin?
Do you think the war in Ukraine really has that much impact on inflation/ energy prices? Or is it companies taking the piss?

Prices started rising before the whole Ukraine scenario: https://www.ons.gov.uk/economy/inflationandpriceindices/articles/energypricesandtheireffectonhouseholds/2022-02-01

Tax the complete balls out of the energy companies (89m in profit a day - somehow I think they can afford to lower prices) and use the revenue to subsidise customers on a sliding scale, with lowest earning families more heavily subsidised than those at the top.

How does rasingin rates and therefore increasing the price of mortgages, credit cards, loans etc benefit those struggling with soaring energy costs?
It's not supposed to.
Rates are jacked up to slow down the economy and put a halt to the gallop of inflation which seems to be driven by a mix of the money supply , the supply chain effects of the war and the impact of resource constraints in the case of oil and gas.

In economic textbooks, which assume there are no other factors at play and that inflation is demand driven, that may be true. However, this is real world and inflation isnt driven by the like's of a house extension or office cabin that contributed to building material inflation during Covid. Raising interest rates to encourage borrowing and less spending doesn't dampen energy costs. People need are already cutting back and can barely afford heat or electricity yet record breaking profit after record breaking profit are being made by the energy firms.

As pointed out above, the rise in energy prices was happening before the war and the price cap removal was before the war.

It's pure price gauging from the energy companies and they are laughing all the way to the bank. Raising rates isn't going to do much for energy prices and most likely will further drive the wealth gap wider.
