    Marton Fulop - RIP

    Actually, it was a Greek team who came third in the Greek Super League. Unfortunately, Fulop had a tumor removed from his arm 9 months after the Arsenal game, and never played again after the surgery. He wasn't in the best shape for the Arsenal game and things only got worse after. Sad to say...

    Marton Fulop - RIP

    Whilst one could think that he threw the game, Fulop was playing for a new contract (which, of course, he didn't get) and thrown in the deep end for his one league game of the season. I am thus more inclined to believe Fulop's take (just before his sad early exit to cancer) on the whole sorry...

    Great Games: 1977 - Spurs 9 Bristol Rovers 0

    I remember a Peter Cook interview where he claimed every time he went to the toilet we'd scored against Bristol Rovers, so he just hung out at the toilets lighting up fags! Of course there was a twinkle in his eye, but I have not been able to find the interview so can't check the veracity of my...

    The Daily ITK Discussion Thread - The Tide Is High

    That's so good, and Harry Redknapp like, I had to look it up and watch Jose telling this story ('You tube' it) with an 'arry twinkle in the eye.... Turns out records show Mario got sent off in the 60th minute, but still, its the way 'arry/Jose tells 'em!

    The Mauricio Pochettino thread

    It may not be a miracle but he's done it in 4 consecutive seasons with a squad bought at minimal net spend and on a strict wage budget. It's really not easy getting top 4. Outside the so-called 'top 6' and Leicester's amazing season only Leeds (2000), Newcastle (2001/2002) and Everton (2005)...

    FIFA Women's World Cup 2019

    Oh come on, one of my best friends is American. And Rose Lavelle is probably my favourite player. But the USA were definitely the most 'professional' team and as such Morgan knows when to go down easily. I could find an example in every game. .

    the UFC thread

    Pretty crazy, huh? Masvidal and Askren seem to dislike each other a lot. That was Masvidal celebrating his win where you thought it was the guy who 'destroyed' Sage Northcutt's face. The guy who 'destroyed' Sage was Cosmo Alexandre. Cosmo whacked him very hard and again after he was out...

    FIFA Women's World Cup 2019

    Yes, I found it very ironic after being told how the women didn't dive, back chat and waste time as much as the men, that the eventual winners were clearly dabbling successfully in the dark arts.

    FIFA Women's World Cup 2019

    Morgan, as she has done throughout the tournament, went down easily. She went for the ball, knew a challenge was coming, closed her eyes, prodded the ball away and fell down. It is soft.

    The VAR Thread

    Just watched the Argentina penalty. Did the ball brush the hair on the Paraguayan's arm? Whatever happened to 'clear and obvious mistakes'? It seems to me that because 3 or 4 extra officials are being employed those officials want to be seen to be doing something and have decided to pull ****...

    Player of the Season

    Have to agree that Sissoko has been the most improved player. His form over the last two or three months has been great but I remember plenty of occasions earlier in the season when his technical ability let him down or he was one on one and he passed to the defender or something. I never...
