  1. The journalist who has come up with the story has really good contacts at Championship level and below, and is usually on the money. I don't think he's got any stories remotely correct about Man Utd though so I don't think there is any truth to this. There is more noise from reliable journos surrounding United going for Longstaff at Newcastle, and the suggestion is that he would be cheaper than the figure being quoted for McGinn.
  2. The biggest issue is referees, players and fans getting to grips with the amended laws that have come into force at the beginning of this tournament. The use of the VAR to try and get these decisions right makes it look like its a VAR issue when it's not. The other big issue is that handball is still such a grey area, and the changes they have made have only made it tougher. Two people can look at one incident and have completely different opinions, which is why we see some inconsistency in referees applying the laws.
  3. The big difference in the final third of that game was the Argentina coach made changes that swung the game in their favour and Kerr didn't react to that at all. The players were absolutely shattered and she should have made her subs earlier.
  4. It's going to be a really difficult game, we'll do very well to win it. That being said, we've had our fair share of bad/hard luck in the first two games so hopefully that turns in our favour tomorrow night.
  5. Certainly an interesting statement Celtic have released about Turnbull 😳
  6. Well Hampden is paired with Wembley so assuming that England qualify, they would be in the group. The other two teams will be made up of countries excluding other hosts so the likes of Italy, Germany, Ireland, Spain, Holland, Russia, Romania, Hungary and Denmark won't be in our group. Toss of a coin who the other teams would be.
  7. That can't be true. The website won't let you apply for tickets for more than one game on any given day so it may be that they have applied for tickets for every single day that the tournament is on, but not every game.
  8. No Robertson or Fraser tonight. Ffs.
  9. Yeah I saw some of the second half, neither team looked great. On the basis of that game I don't think Scotland should be fearing either team. Hopefully we can get a decent result on Friday. As you say though, knowing our luck Japan will come out all guns blazing.
  10. It's also a vicious circle in England at the moment. The TV deal they have means that teams like Palace no longer need to sell their best players and can play hard ball with anyone wanting to buy. They also know when they look to buy to replace the player they have sold, the other team will be doing the same because they don't need to sell either. Even English clubs buying from abroad have problems as other clubs just look at them as a cash cow that can be milked. They brag about how much money is in their game, but this is the result.
  11. Will be in town earlyish, not sure what time. I can meet up with you if there is an overlap.
  12. Whats your plans for before the game next week?
  13. As per his press conference, Dyer will be his assistant. Steven Reid will join the coaching staff, Stevie Woods will be the GK coach but can't join the squad until the Belgium game. Billy Thompson will help out in the meantime.
  14. Im working on the basis that Fletcher has chucked it. Clarke, when talking about available strikers, didn't say he was unavailable through injury. When he was interviewed by Si Ferry on the Open Goal podcast, I didn't get the impression that he was desperate to be involved anyway.
