THE OFFICIAL PROPER FOOTBALL THREAD 2019/20

Recommended Posts

For some reason I find amusing images of lacrimose football fans after their team flops. Doesn't matter the team (although Chelsea and Man U are preferable).

Can we please play Celtic at Ibrox every week? What a game, what a team performance. Two excellent goals. A great day out.

Did Rangers acknowledge Celtics title win at all on the day? I thought all week the best thing would be to give them some applause before the game as difficult as it would be, show a bit of class and not appear petty but then make damn sure to beat them in the match.

I'd have given them a guard of honour and just had done with it, but that's my personal opinion from my own set of values. The Rangers board decided not to.

They have to be wearing the club strip aswell. Bonus points if they have their kid with them and he's bawling aswell

I prefer the relegation ones because you know they're at rock bottom 😁. Couldn't properly enjoy the Liverpool fans crying today or Barcelona fans the other night because it's ultimately all gonna be ok for them.

There are some images of Celtic's manager looking distinctly unchuffed today:

Pissing in the wind mate never gonna happen. Im not really sure why football fans need to prove how much they hate each other. I can watch Newport Dragons v Cardiff Blues on Boxing day fans all mingling together taking the piss. Drink a beer together on the terraces and behave normally. For some reason that couldn't happen in football.

Of course he’s upset. He’s ginger and the sun’s out. He’s going to have a stage 4 melanoma by breakfast. :lol:

This is why I love NFL. Been to see my team in New Orleans a few times and you can get hammered in the stands with the opposing fans for four hours and nobody tries to kill each other. They leave that to the gangs as soon as you leave the stadium. :lol:

You can actually do that in every sport in England except football.

The second City went ahead vs Liverpool in that game, they weren't letting it go. Pep would never let them.

Fair enough but I defy you to name anywhere in England with a better nightlife than New Orleans. Gangland murders aside. :lol:

Americans don't really drink though. They have to be 40 years old and their beer is urine. They don't have a macho liver destroying drinking culture like we do.

They don’t even have full pints but they do have this.

It just looks a bit strange. Sober people dancing!

And dad dancing I might add.

As far as the seasons LFC almost did it, this was probably the closest. But my favorites will always be Rafa's facts and Slippy G seasons.

That slip will never be forgotten and that's a fact

I don't even understand why it is worth getting so upset about getting relegated anyhow. Most of the teams - the bigger sort that is - who get relegated from the Premiership end up having a brilliant season in tier two (and bounce immediately back). Newcastle have done this twice recently, in 2009-10 and 2016-17. In cricket, when Durham were relegated, through punitive and corrupt administrative boards and not onfield defeat, I merely saw it as a chance to see some cricket grounds I had never seen, your idyllic Cheltenham, Chesterfield and Arundel.
