weekend's other games 8-16/17/18/19

Post by Cuenca 'ammer » Fri Aug 16, 2019 8:01 pm

La Liga kicks off today..

they have put a block on Monday games though - Fridays got the okay.

Athletic Bilbao* vs. Barca

Fizzy game:

Huddersfield vs. Fulham two of last season's relegated teams....

seemingly reports coming out Coutinho to Bayern....loan I think they said....

what a complete waste here...excellent at the Mickey Mouser's but did nothing at Barca

Bayern losing at home 1-2 to Hertha

just found this out via the commentary:

In the late 19th century, Bilbao was a leading industrial town and attracted many migrant workers, including miners from the north-east of England, and shipyard workers from Southampton, Portsmouth and Sunderland. They brought with them the game of football, and came together to form Bilbao Football Club. Meanwhile, sons of the Basque educated classes went to Britain to complete their studies, developed an interest in football and on their return began to arrange games with British workers. In 1898, students founded the Athletic Club, using the English spelling.

no score at Bilbao but Williams had a great shot saved, Barca have hit the post twice

Bayern have equalized and it's 1-1 in the Fizzy....

I know it hasn't been that for ages, but when I was coaching the u-littles the best players performing skills were Champions League, the next tier were Premier League and the worst were the Fizzy Pop league. they absolutely loved it and laughed like drains. in fact some tried to get into the "Fizzy" on purpose. so it will always be the Fizzy to me.....

Fulham get their noses in front..........1-2

still 0-0 in Bilbao...

Bilbao sub comes on and with his first touch, overhead bicycle kick

GOLAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAZOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

1-0 what a bloody goal !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Gareth Bale-esque......

Nor our 5-3 win against Herta. They went on to smash Palace 4-0, and now have forced Bayern to come from behind to claim a 2-2 draw.

Let's hope the rigged scheduling for our opening games - for the 6th year in a row - doesn't dent our confidence too badly. There should be enough quality in our squad for us to be more than comfortable this season.

Ceballos looking good for Arsenal. Don't know if we were ever actually close to signing him but looks like it coulda been a good one.

Modric sent off via VAR after the ref has a look.....

tad harsh although it wasn't a great "tackle" - came down on Denis Suarez heel.....

I reckon Kyle Walker needs to take a drug test...

blew past Cresswell last week, gave Sanchez a 5 yard start and blew past him as well

VAR not giving Man City a stonewall penalty.

This where it’s a slippery slope as there should probably be a penalty every game at corners.

We held out a minute longer than Spurs did, against City.

Those pulls from set pieces will always be subjective for refs and therefore fair play to the VAR man if that’s what he thought. Can’t put that into ‘clear and obvious’ category

They score the same goal over and over again - ball goes wide, they knock it back to the passer/crosser with the opposition defence trying to hold a line with an offside CF, and the wide runner beats the trap.

1-1 really questionable goalkeeping
