There's literally nothing happening (with apologies to any fans of Corby or Solihull Motors who might post in here).
Not a thing.
Think you're after Solihull Moors (amalgamation of Solihull Borough and Moor Green, after the latter's ground got arsoned)
I was getting them muddled with Vauxhall Motors for some reason.
Meaning they are the shittest team who've played in the Conference for a good while.
26 games since a win or something like that.
if he doesn't get a new contract by saturday
Not convinced he's as vital to them as he once was, not playing one of the double pivot roles in a 4-2-3-1 anyway. If he's not played further forward he's pretty despensible. If Anzhi or PSG come calling, let him go.
Can bring drive and pace through the middle and there's not really anyone about to replace him with
Especially in the double pivot role.
you don't have to live on the same as the stadium to support a team. pathetic.
you gonna have a go at crazy fans in china loving man utd? whats the point? good luck to them.
I think it's less of 'a thing' now than in the past. In the pre-TV era supporting a team 200 miles away was always going to be a bit try-hard, dunno about that nowadays.
Or certainly not in such numbers that they charter a plane especially for them.
Anyway, its all a bit o bants innit.
and god forbid anyone should MOVE house or even worse TOWN and have to travel.
the world has changed. time to catch up.
But if you've just decided to support a team because 'they're the best', then its a bit, y'know...
Obviously its a bit different for Chinese and all that, as they don't have a local English team.
my point is, why do you have to support your local team? you dont have to do anything.
But you look like a bit of dickhead supporting a team hundreds of miles away simply because they win things.
but you will be judged for it
You're forgetting the strong United roots that all the non-Manchester domiciled United fans have but just aren't obvious because of our instant coffee/1 hour photo mega fast globalised world. They're victims, in a way.
It was ridiculously good.
The most hipster of formations.
I'm that much of a football hipster that i've got an Athletic Bilbao scarf and write #amf on the end of all my tweets
Goes in and out of fashion, but I love it.
Go 4-3-3 against it and it turns into a hugely negative 5-3-2
that quieroz tried to implement at madrid
3 CBs, 2CMs & 2 Wing-Backs, 1 AM, 2 Strikers like:
-------van der sar---------
with no one up front.
Like a lopsided 4-3-3-0 or something. Quieroz was a really good tactician in fairness despite how defensive his initial influence was.
Doing pretty well currently according to my Iranian mate.
I hear it's obsolete now.
dimituescu et al.
The defensive midfielder, the attacking midfielder, the side ones. Happier times.
basically two centre backs, wing backs and a DM, a CM and a kind of Hazard and Mata behind two out and out strikers situation up front. I just invented it.
Absolutely beasted League One. Who even needs wide players
It's a fucking football club.
What's the point really?
They do have a domestic team called Manchester United though...
And now over to Forza for a roundup of the Gibraltar Football League...
we'll be letting Jersey and Northern Cyprus join next.
Sark, Formentera, Lampedusa, Shetland, Kos and the Vatican City
Probably players out there that are just as Sealandish as Vinnie Jones is Welsh though so could come off.
They pay clubs to come and play a match against them to try and publicise the message of their quest to get recognised by UEFA. We lost 4-0 and signed one of their players to the first team.
Ripping the heart out of the Spanish squad.
