The premiership should scrap the points system and allocate positions in the table on goal difference.
and as the career of Zdenek Zeman shows, even when you play with essentially 6 strikers you'll still have a shite goal difference as you'll let in 3 for every 4 you score if you're lucky.
no point in starting another football thread:
most underrated player ever?
No one ever remembers Enzo Francescoli, but he was Zidane's favourite player amongst other things. He was fantastic on the ball, great from dead ball situations, brilliant shooting and passing and good in the air too. I'd say he was like Rivaldo, but miles better. Shame he never played for any really big teams as he was at River Plate for a good while, and then Marseille, Torino and Cagliari.
I only ever saw him play like 5 or 6 times ever (including in the flesh in his one season for Marseille) but it was quite obvious he was a very classy player.
what a class act :D
i like the seemingly random footage of him making a typically uruguayan tackle near the end of that clip.
i only ever saw him on football italia as a nipper and on transworld sport as well and i basically just remembered his name as he was always absolutely fantastic whenever i saw him play.
He was one of the players in the 'greats' section of the Italia 90 sticker book/binder. I always thought he looked hard and had a cool name. Great player too.
that uruguay 90 team was 10 cloggers and him if i remember correctly. i was four, but i remember seeing gazza crying back then :D
i love football.
And Paolo Maldini.
Man i love Paolo Maldini.
how do you know? surely there's no footage so you can tell?
I just know...
The greatest pleasure in the premiership is seeing the stricken looks on the faces of fans of relegation threatened teams as they concede another goal to go 3-2 down...
it would stop good teams playing for 1-0 wins away from home. every minute of every game would count. when chelsea came up against a portsmouth or west brom or sunderland they'd have to exploit the opportunity to win 8-0. It'd be fantastic.
