Get in here lads, its that time of year where you pretend to be a lifelong supporter of Dover Athletic or Gateshead for your 5 minutes of fame on TV.
>First game is Wycombe vs Last year's runners up Aston Villa at 12:45
24 games at 3pm, ones to look out for:
>Holders Arsenal play Sunderland at the Emirates
>Birmingham host Bournemouth
>Everton welcome Dagenham and Redbridge
>Non league Eastleigh welcome struggling Bolton
>Doncaster host Stoke
>Norwich face the continually underwhelming Man City
>Saints vs Crystal Palace and Watford vs Newcastle in 2 all PL ties
>West Ham play Wolves at Upton Park
>Newport County host Blackburn Rovers
>Bury play Bradford in the coveted 'no one gives a shit about this fixture' match
All this building up to the 5:30 match where the even more underwhelming Man United host the giantkillers of Sheffield United at Old Trafford
Oh ye of little faith! Just wait for Mitrovic to score a perfect hat-trick with two tap-ins, with left and right and a scorching header from around penalty spot, smashing a defenders head in the process, blood everywhere and him, face streaking with red like on that Terry Butcher photo, holding his hands up screams in a adrenaline rush at Toon Army
Will 0-0 later be a cupset?
Will Manure play their first team? They don't have much strength in depth.
>Hull City Reserves vs Brighton Reserves
>going to be about 10,000 there because as part of our owner's assblasted plan, he's closed the physical ticket office, and only made it even more awkward to buy online with all sorts of random booking fees
Fucking hate how this club is run.
Also like a lot of modernised clubs, no cash turnstiles anymore, and buying a ticket on the day of the game is basically a lottery. Not to mention prices have gone up since we were relegated. Fucking Allam, it's like he doesn't want people to go anymore. He doesn't even go himself bow because of "abuse" to his precious ego. Twat.
Sounds like Hull really got a roar deal when this guy took over
They do, that was all a mess too. It's his daughter and son-in-law, the Forsters.
Told the players they were all free to go at the end of the season, so a few of their good players did, only for them to change their mind and want to carry on owning the club. A few of them came back, but they basically unloaded some top lads out of stupidity.
They were saying "we haven't found the commercial opportunities we expected" and it's like, you bought a literal village football team, what did you expect when about 4000 people live there?
Still, FA Trophy holders and 2nd in the Conference North with the smallest budget is mental for a village team.
>meant to be at united match later
>season ticket seat moved
>tickets shouldve been delivered to parent's house
>dad driving up here but not answering his phone
You have to buy CL tickets and FA cup tickets. Can opt out of Europa and Meme cup tickets. Don't see why people complain about this most people would always buy tickets for the former anyway
I half understand the rule but at the same tim if you're buying a season ticket it is literally for the premier league season.
You have no obligation to go to other competition matches. It's possible someone could only afford the season ticket.
It's all a bit silly if you ask me.
Post-war United are literally the biggest jews world football has ever seen. Their fans get uppity about Chelsea/Citeh getting new money to compete, when the only reason for it all is United being the first to aggressively commercialise their "brand" and repeatedly mug off their loyal supporters.
Nah mate. It permeates the entire thing. We felt it a couple of years ago. So bloody close.
fucking hate fans of championship teams acting like theyre lower league and acting like their 30k stadium is the same as gown down to watch a pub team play
atleast premiership fans know theyre plastic
I think he's officially been dropped from the league squad now cissokho is back so playing him is the equivelent of resting the [s]good[/s] [s]okay[/s] first team players
not that there's any point any more
it seems every week I have something in my Twitter/Facebook feed about Libor Kozak scoring for the Villa U21s
yet he can never get a fucking start in the first team. JUST PLAY HIM, you never know, you might like it
If you talk to Birmingham and West Brom fans they'll tell you villa fans are plastic because they don't support the smaller local teams despite still supporting their local team.
Villa park is the closest stadium I live to and I still get shit for being a "bandwaggoner"
inb4 he wins the europa league with celtic
RICHARDS RICHARDS RICHARDS RICHARDS RICHARDS RICHARDS RICHARDS RICHARDS RICHARDS RICHARDS RICHARDS RICHARDS RICHARDS RICHARDS RICHARDS RICHARDS RICHARDS RICHARDS RICHARDS RICHARDS RICHARDS RICHARDS RICHARDS RICHARDS
The BBC showed a game last night no way they would show another today
all the 'Too much sport' complainers would come out in force like they do at the world cup despite the BBC having pretty much nothing anymore
"Our" players don't score often m8. He must have forggoton what kicking the ball hard felt like
I don't really, but I get tagged in so many facebook statuses that it gets irritating. Although they do talk about villa more than their own teams
Genuinely made me laugh, does explain it
On the train up from London now guys - can't wait to watch United!
I should probably go to the next match if we win this one.
Not going to another fucking league match though. I'm not paying for championship football until we're in the championship/
Such comfy weather for soccer today, too bad it's the FA cup and not the PL
I'm not hating on the Cup, just the coverage. PL coverage here shows all the games either across all NBC networks or free streaming, but the FA Cup rights are exclusive to Fox who keeps some games behind their pay2stream scheme
"I’m hoping we get an away draw because I really enjoy those trips." Got to love Herrera
Give it some welly
Eastleigh v Bolton (15:00 GMT)
Mind have to lend a pair or two to the players...
Do they fucking proof read anything before chucking it out?
I reckon they hire dribblies because of equal opportunities.
> We 'wan't' to go as far as possible.
The furthest you will get is Round 3, mate. Gray needs to get his debut hat trick.
Rather cynically I would prefer to finish in the CL places and keep most if not all of our young, exciting squad (and Lloris) intact for at least another season, and aim even higher next year or the year after that
Who /getting out the thermals/ here? Fucking freezing out.
>supporting a different club to your dad
I can't even comprehend that. Sure you get bants, but do you go to separate games on a Saturday if you go at all?
Or are you "his wife's son"?
Because that's how it's pronounced.
Because it's our language and we pronounce things the way we fucking want to
we never pretended english was a purely phonetic language, purely phonetic languages are full pleb anyway
I went to a Birmingham City match with him for his birthday.
My mom and two uncles are Villa fans and my dad , brother and one uncle are Birmingham fans. Like I said I don't remember choosing a team.
If you want to call it Wickham (which at this point I don't know how to say), why not simply write it Wickham?
You now realise how MON basically made his name by dragging Wycombe single-handedly into being a Football League club.
Thanks, I try really hard to gain approval in this community, and the reward is to read comments like this. Please enjoy the (You) I am returning.
Nope, people were complaining about Delph for example a few years ago but look at him now. MON is a very good manager, the money you get for being Europa League and finishing 5th was more than he was spending. You're just quoting casuals like Phil from Kent.
>My mom and two uncles are Villa fans and my dad , brother and one uncle are Birmingham fans. Like I said I don't remember choosing a team.
But you are fully aware that you aren't his favourite son, right?
Not the Brumfag, but my dad is a fucking cunt m8.
He hit my mum in the mouth 2 Christmases ago after verbally abusing her for about 12 hours and I kicked the fuck out of him. He spent 3 weeks in hospital. I'd have killed him if it wasn't for the police dragging me off.
I guess you have a loving, caring father but you should remember that's not the case for everyone.
Sunderland XI v Arsenal: Pickford, van Aanholt, Cattermole, O'Shea (c), Lens, Graham, Toivonen, Coates, Fletcher, Yedlin, Watmore.
Subs: Mannone, Jones, Borini, Defoe, M'Vila, Mavrias, Beadling.
i wouldn't say mediocre is the right word, but i definitely get what you mean
i expected him to have scored maybe 3-4 BLOOTERS by this stage but overall he's been a very good player
it's the little things he does, off the ball too that go unnoticed. it's like he's playing a game of FIFA on the pitch, he controls other players around him, tells them where to run and where to pass to.
as midfielders go, there aren't many better than him lad, i mean would you rather have matic? fabregas? toure? wilshere? i don't fuckin fink so m8.
i'd say he's been 8.5/10 when i expected 10/10, but then again, it's not fair to judge him after 6 months in a new league when he's played in germany his whole career.....
also, how many united players have played to their full potential under LvG? i'd say 0, maybe de Gea but that doesn't count
no, he literally starts arguments with everyone, it's like his hobby
he starts shit, provokes others and then gets aggressive and butthurt when he gets BTFO
he's basically a poster from /sp/
>tfw my hat came in last night, Arsenal play this morning, and he NFL playoffs start this afternoon
great start to the weekend
Close. The one win was his first game as well.
Bear in mind this was with one of the favourites for promotion.
In America maybe. Also I can't hear Waldo without thinking of that Chastity Lynn video.
He's called Walter in German. But I've always thought 'Wo ist Walter?' sounds more like a demand from an angry SS officer, than a children's book.
What's with these yank adverts looking like they're from 1997?
Doubt it desu, I guess there will be a few upsets but if not I've pissed away £25
i saw this too. holy shit.
i can assure you the parts of america that actually matter (west coast, northeast) are not like this.
I can only assume Bayonne is in some backwoods flyover state like louisiana
>mfw I actually believed the world was going to be connected and you could do anything that happened anywhere
cmon United! go out with a fight so you can focus on getting back to the Championship
though an FA Cup would be nice to see at Bramall Lane it's not that important compared to the promotion push

Mock us now, but just remember that we've won the last 5 (FIVE) FA Cup tournaments and we're not going to let a nobody like Blunderland take us down.
You can only post in this thread if your club has won the FA Cup.
>that O is just straight up the symbol of an islamic terror organisation
>tfw you have to resort to following the game on fucking twitter
North End. Pompey nativefag. Enjoy your stay
>mfw all these plastic wankers who support Liverpool, United, Arsenal etc. but now have a sudden surge of loyalty towards their hometown team because they're in the spotlight and have a chance to make a name for the town
bit of a blog here but i remember watching this cunt vs liverpool in the fa cup 3 years ago, he was by far the best player on the pitch, and had recently got an italy cap at 22 years old, i was like this guy is gonna be GOAT in a couple years. and now hes still in the championship 3 years later. not saying hes shit just i expected him to push on a lot more
dunno 2bh i've only ever been to a few premier league games and those tickets were always handed to me for free but they were definitely designated seat tickets
different in lower leagues of course, my local team in the 6th tier you just buy per section
Lad, I've said this for years.
I'm a Manchester United fan and I know that getting shit about glory hunting is part and parcel of the game, but it grinds my gears when you have pricks who claim to support their 'local team' when the reality is very different.
What they mean is they support their 'local' well established professional club. Even if they do pass 20 pub teams, 10 semi-pro clubs, and a conference side or two on the way to their 18,000 capacity all seater stadia to watch their 'local' players who have signed for millions and are paid £20k a week....
The thing is, it's not even banter, they genuinely believe they are superior fans because their club isn't as big as United.
Pissing annoying to go down 1-0 again but hnnng that instant reply
Have a krypton lel
these fucking memesters on American TV
