  1. Ryan Fraser starts for Bournemouth.
  2. To me it just seems like a procession for the bigger teams through the group stages and round of 16. There are very few shocks and it only really gets interesting until the QF stage where the gaps between the teams get less. I don't find the group stage particularly interesting to watch unless there is a pretty big tie, even then that only really serves to decide who's going to top the group and who's going to finish 2nd. Even in the knockout stages the games can be boring because many teams put more emphasis on not losing rather than going to win the game.
  3. Watch most Scottish games and in terms of English football will watch Man Utd but nobody else really. The "big" games are always overhyped and turn out to be a disappointment. Will watch some of the bigger games from the Champions League, but i'll pick and choose the games. Europa League can sometimes be better to watch. Don't really watch much Spanish or German football although it can be better than the EPL. Got 2 young kids so i'm more focused on spending time with them at the weekend than watching football if truth be told. Before they were here I'd watch wall to wall football at the weekend but now i'll watch one or two games and even then it probably won't got my full attention for the 90m.
  4. I don't think it's something that is affecting us only either. In European football these days there really is a shortage of top class centre backs. Most if not all of the really top ones are at the end of their careers and there aren't many out there in their early 20's that you could easily pick out and say they will be stars.
  5. I quite like it, much better than the home kit anyway.
  6. I'd agree with that. Had a tough first season but showed glimpses of what he was capable of. At the beginning of last season he was outstanding until his injury and many United fans felt that losing him had a big effect on the rest of the season. He was building a really good relationship with Memphis who's form dropped considerably once Shaw was out of the team. If he can recover from the leg break and keep fit then he'll be a big player next season. Not worth what they paid for him at the time but if he goes on to play 10+ years for United then it won't be too bad of a deal.
  7. I'm sure I read somewhere that FIFA had effectively taken over the AFA. It happened around the Copa America Final and the subsequent announcement of Messi's retirement so seems to have been lost among that news. Think their FA is in a bit of a state.
  8. Yes and also Ukraine who had been WC quarter finalists.
  9. That was my impression. What I saw her say is that we're in uncharted waters with regards to Brexit and it was her job to ensure that the best interests of Scotland were looked after. She didn't commit to another Indy Ref but said that in the event that Independence would serve Scotland's needs better than remaining in the UK post Brexit then she wouldn't be doing her job if she didn't pursue it. As far as I remember she didn't say that it definitely would just that if it did, we should pursue it. I can't see anything wrong with what she's said really. Edited to add; I only saw one interview, so she may have said something different on another programme.
  10. Bring back the three foreigner rule and we'll be qualifying for world cups in no time
  11. I think it's horrific
  12. I think Thistle may increase their percentage over the next few years. More and more players are being promoted from the development squad and hopefully some of them can become first team regulars
  13. Yeah, mine too. Was like putting my specs on I have noticed that stv's pictures have been pretty poor. I had to check I was actually watching the HD channel
  14. Uefa also encouraged fans without tickets to head to Lille and watch it in the fan Park there.
