Four more goals for Haaland today. He's going to need his own thread at this rate.

Aye, fair point, I maybe got carried away with my Christmas statement. I seem to be in denial that it's only a few weeks away.

What I was trying to communicate was that now they have Aguero and Jesus back, coinciding with their fixture swing, they are more than capable of going on a long unbeaten run, which I don't feel the same about with any of our other rivals.

On current form, Chelsea look the best of the bunch and certainly have the players to challenge, but I still think Lampard will be found out. Spurs are grinding out some decent results, but I just don't think they are good enough.

Coote is either corrupt or incompetent. Or a bit of both.

But no matter what, he shouldn't be a Premier league referee

There hasn’t been a striker like him for years - big, strong and quick as well as being a clinical finisher. Christian Vieri anyone.......

Decent shout but I don't remember vieri being very quick. But it was a few years ago. I think he's a fairly unique beast to be honest. He looks awkward when he runs, I've seen him miss plenty due to being off balance and ungainly. He's played in two extremely helpful leagues although I think he's benefitting massively in the current climate of bad defending. Proper defending is a thing of the past. Everything is weighed massively in favour of attackers. He'd score loads over here too, I've no doubt. I just don't think he's technically as good as players that have gone before him, the games just different now. Good luck to him. Unless he goes to Utd and then I hope he snaps in two.

kinell Joaquin is still playing for Betis. He must be nearly 40 now?

I was absolutely desperate for Ged to sign him for the RW around 01/02.

We all laughed at the stories of him breastfeeding until he was 8 or something. But its turned him into ironman

Why football is facing major change, despite 'toxicity' of Project Big Picture plan

When Premier League chief executive Richard Masters addressed a parliamentary hearing on 10 November, he delivered a line all English football could agree on, despite the fierce opposition that followed Project Big Picture's unexpected unveiling a month before.

"Change is coming."

Masters was talking about the situation in Europe, where negotiations around the expansion of Uefa's club competitions have been taking place for 17 months now.

However, if England's so-called 'big six' clubs have their way, that "change" will be far more extensive than what appears set to happen on the continent - an expanded format for all European club competitions, including the Champions League group stage.

An 18-team Premier League, no more EFL Cup or Community Shield, B teams, the scrapping of FA Cup replays. All these were mentioned within the Project Big Picture proposals, which became public ahead of schedule at the beginning of October when they were leaked to the Daily Telegraph.

Sounds like the assistant, when asked to identify who should be sent to the stands, said something equivalent to 'the black guy' in Romanian. Black be negru in Romanian. Could be a contentious one this, although the above is obviously unclear at this stage. Race as an identifier is not necessarily racial abuse.

Surely wouldn't be too hard for a mic to pickup exactly what was said considering the lack of crowd, game coverage etc

I don't think what was said is really in question, but I could be wrong. It was an n word, but not the n word as we know it.

This kind of incident is difficult, it can fuel resentment both ways. Personally, based on is being reported, I don't think leaving the field was the right response

True, but the offended lad is clearly saying it was the 'n word'......that can be picked up quite clearly in all the kerfuffle, so surely the initial incident must be ?

I dunno


Game back on soon apparently

Good on them to walk out. This sort of shit needs to stop. No football game until this crap is kicked out of the game.

Demba Ba was saying the 4th official said ďthe black guyĒ. Itís unacceptable.

It's on mic that Ba is asking him why he said negro, the officials are telling him 'romanian language' ie negru for black.

Now whether it is appropriate to use skin colour as a differentiator is highly questionable, especially when you could walk up and point or something, but to abandon a game over, hmm not sure about that.

Easy to say, but you have to define 'this', and then what's proportional to it.

There are no ifs, buts or nuances in this. This sort of stuff should be eradicated from the game or there is no football. Glad the players took a stance.

There absolutely is. 'This sort of stuff" is not good enough. Identifying someone by their race is a long way off racially abusing someone, to deny that is willfully ignorant. Neither should happen, but the response to both does not need to be the same, and I think it would be unhelpful if it were.

Referring to someone by their skin colour is not acceptable. Itís not abuse but itís not acceptable. Itís easy to get caught by the semantics but it would be helpful not to have them in the first place and not allow that sort of language.

Using black as a descriptive is not racist, surely? Unless said with venom or animosity, but in this instance I don't think it was. Just a simple way of singling out the culprit?
