    Ther reason for firing Rowett was ridiculous. Openly saying he wasn't a big enough name and hiring Zola, a big name but has continuously failed in management.

    New owners were ready to spend so Harry with his wheeling and dealing, contacts in the game etc seemed a sensible enough hiring.

    But Redknapp was moaning about signings near the end of the window, got bad resuts and moaned about injuries today. Just felt like he was done and not up to a new challenge.

    Ok, this is awkward - Paddy Power have offered 66/1 on Harry's replacement at Brum... Ugo Ehiogu :facepalm:

    Seems harsh to rate that funny. But God that's ridiculous

    Interesting talking point in the Brentford/Leeds game. As Brentford's Watkins was taking a penalty, a screwed up ball of paper was thrown in to the 6-yard box from the Leeds fans and he subsequently missed.

    He didn't appear to blame the object for his miss, but had the referee seen it should he have ordered the pen to be retaken regardless of whether it was a miss, save or a goal?

    Two goalkeeping howlers in the Brentford/Leeds game.

    Lost me 30 quid too.

    Tried to find any rules on this and couldn’t. Seems like the only refereeing rules concerning the fans are on pitch invasions, which seems mental.

    That beach ball goal against Liverpool was allowed to stand a few years ago, so I guess it’s just a free for all.

    Personally I would have had it retaken, but only because it was a miss against Leeds.

    The Darren Bent beech ball goal came in to my mind too, but then again that was from open play so I'd imagine that would be a far harder decision from the referee than a penalty retake.

    Thankfully Brentford won anyway.






    ...which fucked me off because I cashed in on my Liverpool/Bayern/Brentford to win acca at 1-1. Bastards!
