Don't think Slovakia is part of the Balkans?

'The balkans' is a fairly contentious term anyway, Slovenia is considered by some/most as part of the balkans but Slovakia flat out isnt. Vladamir Beara was considered one of the best in the world at the time of Lev Yashin.

Why are left footers so much worse than right footers for being able to kick the ball on their bad foot?

Because being left footed is a novelty and you are valued for it. You don't need a right foot because being left footed is such an advantage. ( Biased left footed biglad here)

Is there any reason why there were so many non-televised FA Cup games played on Sunday this weekend? There were like 9 or something all kicking off at 2pm today.

Only thing I can think of is if teams were playing on Wednesday but they do that all the time then play Saturday don't they?

They've done that with the second round games for a couple of years now. Think it's to get a bit more TV exposure as BBC have that show where they show the goals as they go in, they can't do that on a Saturday.

Didn't know about that, I'd have definitely watched if I'd known it was on.

Tbh I'd prefer they were all played on the Saturday, but given that it's not (and it's unlikely to change based on my personal preference) I'd still have watched that program Wullie mentioned.

Suppose it shows how little I watch the beeb for anything these days that I was completely unaware of its existence until I read his post.

Not sure if its just at st james, but why do they stop the timers at 45 or 90 minutes? So the fans dont put loads of pressure on the ref to blow when the added time indicated is up?

Answered your own question there I think. :thup:

Imagine if the board was counting at 94:22 and a goal goes in? Even though 4 minutes would have been minimum there’d be hell on.

Presume its just because the pubs aren't open so it has to be cans to celebrate

Why are Real Madrid top of LaLiga when level in points with Barcelona, even though Barcelona have a better goal difference. Guessing La Liga goes by number of defeats first?

Think it goes off head-to-head with the team you're level on points with.

My opinionated father in law with a view on everything just came in and saw me watching this Arsenal match and said "nee wonder football is knackered, look how many fans are in that stadium!!"

I'm astounded how many people in this country walk around with their head firmly buried in sand.

Why can you never get our 93-95 home shirt with player names and numbers on the back? Were they strictly for the players only due to the way they were printed? Just you can buy the blue and green change kits from that era with name and number prints but never the home kit.
But...6 in a row. But...Calciopoli.

I reckon Haydn wears pure concentrated pheromones.
