  1. Football Season 2009/2010

    You may have seen a quote I haven't but this is one thing he said: "I'm the first to say that it doesn't look like a penalty but it's another thing to say that he went down with intent." Doesn't sound like he's claiming a foul. He is unhappy with the inconsistency in the case, having seen people cheat against his team with no repercussions, sometimes in more important circumstances than this (See my earlier Babel example that directly knocked Arsenal out the CL, as opposed to this where you take it away and Arsenal still win 4-1). Read this and try to understand what he is saying: "I've fought my whole life against cheating and I've seen some obvious cases where Uefa didn't intervene. On and off the pitch things have happened where no action was taken. "But now the existing rules of football have been changed just for one case so we will from now on challenge every single decision that is made in Europe by the referees. "This is the first time since I've been in football that the judgement made by the referee is not accepted by the football bodies."

    Wasn't the last one in 2007? You can't pick and choose when to enforce rules, it cannot be at random, it has to be all the time or none of the time. What is the occasional ban going to achieve? I thought UEFA were totally unable to overturn referee's decisions, even when they are proved wrong? Remind me why Fletcher wasn't allowed to play in the CL final?

    I have no problem with them starting to do something about it, but you and I both know this is not a long term commitment. If they want to do something about it, you announce it first, you don't pick a single incident as the only one to get punished. Will they be enforcing this dive = 2 match ban for all games in UEFA competitons? of course not, look at Ashley Young's dive yesterday: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2BWRDOjfz9c#t=0m26s Will he be banned? no. If a big name player dives in the Quarters or Semis of the knockout stages, and would miss the final, will Platini and Blatter hand out the same punishment? On a cold day in hell.

    Eduardo might be banned for 2 games. This is utterly ridiculous. Don't get me wrong, I think its great they've decided to do something about diving, but you can't just start to make it up as you go along. There are so many dives across Europe every year, but all of a sudden they've decided this is the most important one of the last 20 years? Where were UEFA when Ronaldo dived against England? Where were UEFA when Babel cheated a penalty against Arsenal in the last 5 minutes of a CL quarter final? (And that was a penalty that actually meant something, not one that you could remove and still turn up the same result) Where have UEFA been for the entire of Ronaldo's career? UEFA proving once again that they are a joke.
  5. Xbox Live Arcade/PSN Thread

    I know this isn't about 'Xbox Originals', more about Original Xbox Games, but still. I took this earlier today. Some 4 year old Xbox sports games for £22? Bargain, good job Asda. Fifa 2005 (Asda: £22/Amazon £0.01) Uefa Champions League 2004/5 (Asda: £22/Amazon £0.50) Total Club Manager 2005 (Asda: £22/Amazon £0.54) Rugby 2005 (Asda: £22/Amazon £0.95)

    link Some people here said they missed the goal, but for me, it cut back before the goal went in, just as the ball was played into the box. I'm in the West Midlands on Virgin Cable TV, just wondering what happened for you others.

    Ramar, if you were buying one player for Arsenal this transfer window who would you get? I reckon I'd go for Torsten Frings, always been impressed with how he plays for Germany, and he's the kind of player we need. Oh and Shearer on MotD: I know its after the watershed, but really..
  9. Clay pigeon shooting

    Quality, thats awesome. Went perfectly with the start of 'Losing Streak' by Eels which came on my itunes.
  10. Football Season 2008/2009

    So do Arsenal really need Arshavin? They say a deal is going through in the next 48 hours. To be honest, I think we need a quality Defensive midfielder, not an attacking flair player..

    Here we go Burnley, here we go uh-uh!

    Actually 1 more gets them extra time and then a win, not penalties.
  13. Windows 7

    Anyone know any good dedicated Windows 7 communities or forums? I feel like I'm missing a load of things, and also can't work some things out.
  14. Windows 7

    I'm torrenting the .ISO, and I'll just use the official key I get. With my wireless network its not likely to stay up for the 7 hours its going to take to download.

    You legend! Still, I can't help but think my internet is going to disconnect while I try to download this..
