Lomachenko vs Rigondeaux
at 21:39 10 Oct 2017

The best fight that can be made in boxing right now, and it has been made.

Dec 9th in NYC. Wish i could go to this. Some serious talent in both these guys. Have to favour Lomachenko though.

So what do we think then?

Considering hes only been here a couple of days, looks pretty good. Sat in front of the defence and broke up play and kept it simple - will be vying with Leon for that spot.

Mesa and Caroll for one role, with Fer and Ki for the other spot.

Enough of the politics etc etc.

A genuinely top quality 50-50 fight this one. The undercard is decent too. Probably a full house at Brammall Lane so looking forward to this.

Who you got?

Boxing this weekend
at 20:57 27 Jan 2017

From Vegas - Looks a good card and am looking forward to this..

Carl Frampton v Leo Santa Cruz (WBA featherweight) - Quality fight - Frampton should win again though

Lee Selby v Jonathan Barros (IBF featherweight) - Tough test for Selby

Dejan Zlaticanin v Mikey Garcia (WBC lightweight) - Garcia is a great fighter to watch, can bang. Hope he stays injury free. Zlat is decent too

Josh Taylor v Alfonso Olvera (light-welterweight) - Taylor is a very very good Scottish prospect. Huge talent and big things expected

Heres one for you then.

If we still suck in January and we are pretty much nailed on to go down (lets be honest, its a possibility), would you sell in the transfer window to get top coin, or would you hold and take the risk of losing on the cheap?

Upsetting the Iranians..

"Iranian officials have complained after the captain of South Korea likened Tehran to a big prison.

Swansea midfielder Ki Sung-yueng also said some Iranian fans threw bottles and other missiles at his team-mates when they arrived in Tehran wearing air pollution face masks. "

The sale of Williams
at 11:13 19 Sep 2016

Apologies for bringing up an ex-player again (yes, fck him)

But for me, this is our biggest problem. Lets be honest, he was a leader on and off the pitch and in reality was the only screamer/shouter we had. NONE of our remaining players are like this - theyre all quiet little followers rather than a leader. Yes it was a good price, but are we now paying for that on the pitch with lower standards and lack of effort? For me we are..

FG is nicey nicey and there isnt anyone else (playing staff or back office) who is willing to say it as it is as far as im aware.

Personally was concerned when he left for this very reason and that there would be no hard edge about us, and that certainly seems the way. In other words, we have no backbone.

Thoughts?

Frampton v LSC
at 17:46 30 Jul 2016

Bit of a niche fight this and on in the early hours, but a very interesting one. A definite 50:50 pick 'em.

LSC is overrated for me but high workrate and size advantage may be enough. Frampton needs a huge performance to win this one.

Anyone?

Im watching the re-run of this game and im wondering who this guy at left back is? It certainly isnt the player who plays for us. I mean this guy gets forward, chucks in decent crosses and looks mildly creative.

OK. So as they normally do, they all go dressed up as some sort of character or person. Just like the Smurfs.

But this year they are going as Bob Marley and 'guidance' has been provided and that they should not 'black up' as it is offensive (much like the Bony incident.)

Now why is it offensive going dressed up as a famous black person? I just dont get it. Am i missing something?

Ok Garth, so you stick Gomis in your team of the week, but then you say...

"without the appalling decision by referee Andre Marriner to send Hull City's David Meyler off for what appears to be a run-of-the-mill tackle, the outcome for Bafetimbi Gomis and for Swansea City might have been very different."

Appalling decision? Are you fcking nuts? Did you see it from the angle of the ref Garth? Dick.

So this 'diamond' formation
at 20:03 21 Mar 2015

Is it a yay or nay?

Think we have played five games with it, won three, lost 2 and havent been outclassed in either of those.

We have looked solid on the whole but also as though we are unlikely to be prolific using it. It seems we control games better using the system, much like we used to, but at the expense of that flair and wing play.

Are the wingers poorly performing due to the system and coaching? Or is the form of the wingers a response by the coaches to look for alternatives?

This shape didnt really work for Rodgers and he changed it up. Is it something we should continue with or would you rather revert back to type with one of our previous incarnations?

Independence Day

Ok. So im watching Independence Day and its got me thinking. If something like this were to happen, and some aliens were to pop their ugly mugs in to Earth so we knew they existed, what do you think the religious folk amongst us would do? What would they say? What would they believe?

Would God have created them? Would all religions go in to meltdown? Would chaos ensue?

Just curious.

Shoot me, but..
at 21:36 11 Feb 2015

.. i really dont enjoy watching us play anymore. We arent attractive to watch. We look brittle, lack any creativity and movement and have very little energy. We barely pass for being 'workmanlike'.

Garry says hes happy with our attacking play as we're scoring goals - fair enough - but i think we havent got a clue.

I dont normally jump up and down and make noise about stuff as i appreciate where we are and where we've come from. Im realistic. Many people will point at our points total etc. But we are just dull.

Hate on. Sorry.

Close to getting back to fitness, if not there already. But will he get a decent amount of game time when he does?

Monk didnt seem shy to use him at the back end of last season and will arguably provide more going forward than Taylor - although defensively is a bit of a wang as we know.

No other real options either, does he deserve a run ahead of Taylor?

Our 'out' ball.
at 18:26 13 Sep 2014

Something all of our recent coaches have struggled with when teams figure out that by pressing us high closes down our game and forces us to make mistakes.

For the first half an hour today, we were finding that little straight ball out from the back and between their midfielders - and it was cutting them wide open every time. They closed down the space so we stopped trying it.

Wouldve been nice to have more than one option when doing that as its very effective when we do it properly
