re: Sterling won't talk new contract until summer - crazy4lsu
[quote]Liverpool came out and said they aren't selling him this summer even if he refuses to sign the contract. [/quote] Which basically forces their hand. The longer Sterling draws this out the more likely it is he will get what he wants. City need English players, and I think they will target...

[quote]If referees are going to continue to book players for nothing challenges where a player dives and rolls around like Neymar is so good at then what incentive do they have to not get the most out of their challenges? [/quote] I'll concede this is a fair point, but the game has generally mov...

re: Neymar has no one to blame but himself - crazy4lsu
As a fan, you have every right to hate him. I don't like divers in the same way I dislike dirty players. Contextualized within the psychological sphere of the game, I completely get it. It's all about besting your opponent, using any means necessary. It's up to the referee to judge the game fairly a...

re: Neymar has no one to blame but himself - crazy4lsu
[quote]I have no problem in any sport with a certain team targeting the opposing team's best player. [/quote] No one does. But there is a clear difference between tactical fouling to prevent dribbles and what Chile was doing to Neymar. [quote]The issue here is that he thinks diving is going t...

re: Neymar has no one to blame but himself - crazy4lsu
[quote]Like he's ever needed any incentive. [/quote] Regardless, my point is that diving isn't going to be stopped by not calling absolutely clear instances of when a player is being targeted. In that sense, Neymar's reputation might precede itself, but in this game, it was absolutely clear from...

re: Neymar has no one to blame but himself - crazy4lsu
In this instance, Neymar's reaction was understandable. I know people hate him, but it's not like he dove. He got stamped on fairly clearly and was kicked all game. If the referee can't protect him in clear instances where he is being targeted, then what incentive does he have not to dive at the fir...

re: Neymar has no one to blame but himself - crazy4lsu
[quote]It's ridiculous but nowhere near as ridiculous as diving. [/quote] Agree to disagree. Diving has always been a part of the game, and technical differences will always result in smaller, technical players embellishing contact at the first opportunity. The lack of respect for the referee ma...

re: Neymar has no one to blame but himself - crazy4lsu
[quote]As do all other players like him.[/quote] Basically all players dive or at the very minimum, embellish contact. And there will always be diving as long as there are differences between players with regards to size, speed, strength and technique. It's up to the referee to spot these instanc...

re: Neymar has no one to blame but himself - crazy4lsu
You're defense doesn't make sense in this particular context. Whether Neymar dives a lot has nothing to do with Medal's stamp. Chile very clearly targeted Neymar from the beginning, and basically kicked the shite out of him the whole game. The fact that the ref didn't protect Neymar (I mean, it wa...

re: EPL clubs as a whole turn record profit - crazy4lsu
While I agree that FFP basically cements the large clubs, it is the culmination of movements like G-14, which basically involved the biggest clubs in Europe. Europe's precarious financial position basically forces the hand of FFP, in my estimation, as it is similar to imposed austerity efforts t...

re: Arsenal 2014/15 Season Long Thread - crazy4lsu
I've said it from the beginning. Chambers never really convinced me at RB, and I would have liked Jenkinson back when Debuchy went down the first time. Chambers is superb with the ball at his feet, but he's not the best athlete and I really love when the players who run without the ball (namely Walc...

[quote]This guy is the future, though. [/quote] I'd really like Jenkinson back while Bellerin goes out on loan. If Bellerin develops into something I could easily see him going back to Barca. Though Jenkinson can't really dribble, he runs, and can deliver a good cross. ...
