    EPL I predict Newcaste to stay up with Norwich and Sunderland joining Aston Villa going down. Championship promotion will be interesting with Burnley (+33gd) in first and Middlesbrough (+30gd) in second and Brighton (+28gd) in third and all on 87 points with two games remaining. Burnley plays at home to Queens Park and on the Road at Charlton. QPR have been better since the coaching change, but Burnley should beat them and Charlton. Boro play at Birmingham for the next match which could be a tough game for Boro to take all three points. Brighton play their next game at home to Derby which will also be tricky for Brighton to win. The final game for Boro and Brighton will be against each other at Middlesborough, so either one, or both will drop points. So, I think Burnley will win the league and one of the unlucky others are headed to the playoffs. The playoffs in the championship will be either Middlesborough, or Brighton against either Derby, Shef Wed, or Cardiff. Hull will play either Derby, or Shef Wed.

    Says the man with the name that sounds like Strange glove. ANYHOW, I just watched on netflix and I liked it.
  3. Not sure if the split numbers support this, but Loup seemed a bit better than Tepera near the end of the season. I know for the season as a whole Tepera had much better numbers, but I guess the 4 lefty Rangers bats numbers may reflect Gibbons decision for Loup vs Tepera.

    Solid MLS officiating.

    Well I am stuck with the unfortunate lineage to have my family from Arbroath and Gairloch in Scotland and Hemel Hempstead, Puckeridge, and Stalybridge in England and Sligo in Ireland. I started to cheer for Scotland and have no interest to cheer for England, or Ireland. I just can't and wouldn't choose another national team, even though I joke about it. The results are also somewhat misleading under Colin Miller too. He played guys that should never play at the national team level and the results show. With Floro it was nothing more than a training camp with friendlies I do agree.

    I say we will give 'em a good go at least. I expect we will need at least 1 point out of it. Scotland drop to 63 on Fifa ranking (generous, but Croatia and Skopje help) and Canada goes to all time low of 106 after super rich nations in the Americas like Haiti (78) and Cuba (84).

    I am going to start cheering for Spain and Brazil I swear to god! Our last 365 days as a national team supporter in Canada: Floro starting out 0-1-1 against 151st ranked nation according to Fifa... excellent!

    Funny how I thought Willan and Eden Hazard were probably two of the best players out of the top four leagues in Europe in recent years and now they both play for Chelsea. I look forward to seeing the load of new talent in the EPL.

    I agree with your picks other than Porto for Zenit. Very tough group for Celtic, but they all look rather hard to be honest. Shaktar warned about the goat thing too... I won't comment... So, don't know a lot about the Pukki dude, other than he should be a good scorer at least in domestic competition. I really hope the new signings start doing something. The team is just not the same without Wanyama, Wilson and Hooper. Also, my league prediction for the top four in the BPL: Man Citeh, U, Tottenham, Chelsea. I think the bottom four is harder to choose. Also, if Bale is being sold and Citeh and Chelsea have all this cash why not go for him? For me Bale-Negredo-Navas would be a nice front three!!

    Yeah, I come and read sometimes. Just not much to add. Thankfully the second leg of the Celtic SKG is on SNET. Interesting reading up a bit on Kazakhstan (I will admit I got side tracked and started reading about Azerbaijan and Uzbekistan too). League cup tie tomorrow between Villa-Rotherham is a replay of the first ever league cup finale. Free tickets for anyone who saw the match live! (1961)

    They did Borat proud. Side note Mouyokolo sucks dogs balls.

    They both need to live in the country for five years before they can represent Canada at official Fifa games. So, for our next WCQ they will be ready if they stay in the country and Floro gives them the call.

    First Koffie gets his Canadian citizenship now Camillo. With Benito Floro taking over it can only be an improvement over Hart for our national program and hopefully a couple of nice additions if these guys end up donning the red and white.
