Great, so we're without our captain and top scorer heading up to the Christmas period, which we always do crap in...
Alternatively, our captain Ledley King may return to first team duties over the Christmas period and Robbie Keane, our top scorer and vice captain, gets a break before the busy Christmas schedule. A time of the year when he is usually just kicking into action goals wise. Berbatov, also being a late starter, should also hit form and Bent and Defoe’s opportunities increase with Keane’s abscene so they can stake their claim for a first team spot.

No doubt we hit a bit of a low last Sunday but we must look for positives or you’ll all be punching Auntie Mavis over the Christmas turkey when she accidently buys you an Arsenal scarf cos she knows you like football (soak it in brandy and throw a match on it instead, very Christmassy :up: ).

"Soooome things in life are bad,
they can really make you mad!
other things just make you swear and curse
When you're chewing on life's gristle
don't grumble! give a whistle!
and this'll help things turn out for the beeeest..."

Furthermore, could the FA also explain Uriah Rennie’s presence at the match? If Phil Dowd had for some unforeseen reason been unable to complete the match, then in that situation, Uriah Rennie would have filled in for him, yes? In that particular circumstance, the game would have been officiated by an unqualified referee. What is the justification for Uriah Rennie being anywhere near the match in an official capacity?
Erm not quite correct Rennie has got his badge back and has done for about two weeks. Although I agree he's crap, he is qualified. it was the twats on Sky Sports who got it wrong.......again.

Three games without Keane,

The other 3 amigos better show that they are capable of scoring goals, especially the two transfer candidates Defoe and Berbatov, or the League Cup will be gone and a European spot will slip further away.

We are living in interesting times....:think:.

Spurs write letter, that will get them worried!

Next time that tosser ref's our game we should do what Spanish fans did. They smuggled a baby pig into the ground with a referees kit on, then let him loose during the game... Thinking about it we can't even get a miniture brandy past the stewards these days.

The fact that he actually expressed more disappointment about losing the game than the red-card shows what kind of player he is.

Keane = Class

The FA = Clueless Morons

we need to organise a mass strike of all premier league matches and even football league too. leave the stadiums empty and force the clubs to tell the FA to buck up or fuck off, in which case the EPL can be bought by a private organisation or russian billionaire who can employ someone who can watch the sky replay then quickly inform the referee of the correct decision, each and every fucking game. common sense seems to apply to every aspect of life except the world of football. and tell UEFA/FIFA to fuck off as well

The rule that says on appeal a red card cannot be downgraded to a yellow card is just the biggest load of bollocks ever.

But then again what should I expect of an FA that hired MacClaren for the England job?????????????

won't work - the video ref has been discussed, but he'd be just as likely to make a bad call as a ref on the pitch, and would take even more of the already diluted fluidity out of the game.

The only way to approach this is to be much, much stricter on referees. I also think the FA needs a post-match review body. Head it up with Ray Clemence, create a commitee for each division and, at the end of each week, they sit and go over each and every game played in their respective league. This way we'd get the poor decisions properly reviewed and, in cases where things are missed by the ref, some actual decision making, rather than the pussying about the FA do now.

And we would still be overruled by FIFA, who decreed that national associations could not overrule or alter referees' decisions because doing so would undermine the authority of referees. So Captain Mainwaring and the Dad's Army at the FA are kowtowing to a bunch of corrupt spivs.

Blatter is strangely reminiscent of a late-Medieval Pope, and FIFA of the late-Medieval Catholic Church. We really need a Henry VIII to take on this bunch of crooks/****s.

What's Blatter going to do? Excommunicate us?
