Dele’s performance against Vitesse isn’t talked about enough, literally one of the worst performances ever. 90 mins 0 goals 0 assits 0 key passes 0 shots on target 0 dribbles 0 tackles 0 interceptions 0 clearances 0 blocks 0 fouls won 0 crosses 0/1 long balls 0/8 ground duels won 1 aerial duel won 2 fouls commited


Jabari313

Fan is just lucky Cantona isn't Palace manager


alx69

Half volleying a prick screaming in your face should be legal


Cowdude179

I have a feeling Vieira will get punished for that


milesvtaylor

That's the playoffs then... Forest, Sunderland and Mansfield for me As for non-league... Wrexham, York, Dorking?

Dybala next season when he scores against Juve, "It was the saddest mask celebration in my career."


[deleted]

People adore to overrate PL managers, I swear. Heard so many plaudits about Vieira, Hassenhuttl and Potter when their teams are bang average. If Di Francesco managed Watford, PL fans would call him generational


crataywoo

Hassenhuttl hasn't been rated for a while and most of his hype came from his RB Leipzig days. Vieira's being credited for taking a team that was expected to finish around the relegation spots and making them look a comfortable PL team. Potter has been successful wherever he has been.


avolcando

Hasenhuttl stopped getting hype after the second 9-0 result


msf97

We remember the 7-1.


FloppedYaYa

They are seriously over achieving with those teams based off the quality of players lol, of course they're well rated


Cawn123

Everyone is giving Viera shit, but it's a lovely volley on the turn. Great technique.


saigool

Would be brilliant if he channels his inner Moyes when asked to explain himself.


delidl

You got to respect Viera for volleying that bloke. You can’t start screaming in somebody’s face and then be suprised someone puts you to the ground

Hope Pogba returns to Juve. Another diva luxury midfielder with massive wages. Would be a dream

He would fit well at Juve honestly


CoolstorySteve

Tradition merchants will tell you pitch invasions are great because “eh let the boys have a bit of fun” problem is people can’t behave themselves or handle their alcohol


BuffaloCorrect5080

The fan he will sit nicely in his seat and sing the merry song when commanded or he will get the teargas, the dog, the Viera and finally the dismissive reddit comment. Order must be maintained


darudewamstorm

Get a grip


narutosama77

Vieira is lucky the other fans didnt gang up on him. You are a famous person you have lifelong training of keeping your cool when rival fans rattle you lol how can you react like this?


saigool

I think it's to be unfair to be too dismissive of his reaction until we know more about what was said and what happened in the leadup to the event. The only thing people are basing their opinions on are a grainy 10 second video ffs


Cowdude179

Yeah, very poor from Vieira to act like that. Things could've gone south real quick


darudewamstorm

FA gonna be bedwetting about the pitch invasions for fake moral justice points, when you police the fans like criminals they act out


Cottonshopeburnfoot

Oh they’ll issue the strongest statement alright!


ManLikeNiz

Naah that Vieira video from the pitch invasion has me crying😭😭😭😭


MarvellousG

Which one?


ugotbaited

Pitch invasion during the game and attacking the other team's manager, that's worthy of a 4 points deduction in my humble opinion


[deleted]

Please, all I ask for is Lampard to start Dele on Sunday.


spacehiphopnerd

Which leagues do you believe are the most underrated (in terms of skill)? While I do not follow the league particularly closely, I honestly believe the MLS gets a disproportionate amount of hate. For example, some of my American friends said they would stream an English League Two match before they would give their local MLS team a chance. I have my issues with the league, but in terms of quality of play, I honestly do not think it is as bad as people make it out to be. By no means is it a top 10 league, but it has come a long way over the past 5-6 years.


[deleted]

[удалено]


spacehiphopnerd

This was exactly my point There is a reason I’m not that invested in MLS (mostly has to do with the structure of the league), but I seriously don’t think it is that bad haha


RomeoLavia

The problem with rating the MLS is that you will get some hipsters trying to claim it's the 12th best league in the world, and then in response to that you'll get people saying it's English conference quality. Neither are true but people fight extremes with extremes. I think that the second divisions of the top nations (Germany, Spain, France) are generally underrated. It's not really a rare thing to see fantastic players come from Ligue 2 for example. It's packed with talent despite the fact that the teams in it are generally in bad spots financially.


spacehiphopnerd

Agreed, my point was exactly this. I’m not going to pretend it is something it’s not. However, I feel the criticisms can be unfair at times.


Superb-Barracuda-924

I mean if the top league and premier football competetion of your country is comparable in skill level to English league two then I think the criticism is hardly undeserved


DuckBurner0000

MLS is on the level of lower Championship/upper League One


cheikhyourselfm8

As much as I’m happy to see Everton stay up, the air of deflation in the crowd when the second Palace goal went in, along with how fucking shit the defending was, was hilarious


efcdoyley

I’m crying Patrick Viera volleyed one of our fans hahahahahaha cheers for the 3 points lad


FIJIBOYFIJI

What a Manlet. I expect this behaviour from Brewster and McBurnie, but not big Patrick Vieira


[deleted]

[deleted]

Can't assault people like that, had that shit happened here Vieira wouldn't walk by himself today. Imagine assaulting a fan of a team while surrounded by a bunch of them he was massively lucky it didn't go south


efcdoyley

Didn’t have to volley him though like did he haha


Cowdude179

Arsenal DNA, Lampard just dunked on his head


BI01

waara 17th place finish


4dtakes

Imagine arteta at Everton instead of titanium mentality lamps, he would’ve absolutely crumbled under the pressure


BI01

rteta gets them relegated and makes them take 2 extra years in the championship just to get into the play offs.

If there's no MOTD for tonights games, whats the best site for comprehensive highlights (preferably with commentary)


sul01

There'll be short highlights, extended highlights and a full match replay of our game on our official website at some point within the next 24 hours Id imagine. Skysports should have some on YouTube now but they'll be shorter ones


Cottonshopeburnfoot

Sky Sports has free to watch highlights of at least the Everton match.

BuckFlackburn

Always liked Brentford. Never agreed with any of that infamous rant from that bitter Swansea fan. Thomas Frank is a b-tech Guardiola. Also think our club commentator was out of order for moaning as he did after our defeat at the Brentford Community Stadium, better team won on the day.


Mick4Audi

Clucasade is based but I’m willing to put that aside for a week for Burnley to stay up


reece0n

Phil Bird was just a bitter fan who just watched his team get outplayed for 90 minutes that day, we've all been there.


adamjamal2AD

Last time Real Madrid football and basketball were in their respective European final, both of them won it. I’m just saying…


moc360

Last 4 times we beat the defending champion we won CL. Last time we lost by 4 goals in a clasico we won cl there is also the Croatian thing. To be honest we won CL so often that those coincidences happens very often. So we will see


[deleted]

[удалено]


moc360

I don't believe in them , my point is those things mean nothing , till we win


bolah

And both times against Liverpool in football, both times against teams from Instanbul in basketball and both times the Euroleague final in Serbia. But no Doncic this year :(


Zidlicky3

Ffs they knocked Barça out, 83-86. Well, let’s hope they lose both


narutosama77

Regardless of that fact, I am pretty calm and happy about how things are about to turn out.


aj6787

Time for both to lose


ElevatorSecrets

More players assaulted in a playoff game. Fucking hell people are idiots


LS_Fast_Passenger

Should the Conference league winner also be given a pathway to CL qualification? I am not saying direct entry into group stage, but probably an early round of UCL play off qualifiers. If they lose them they are back in the Europa. PS: Not saying this because Utd are likely to be in it next year. Because the Conference League is after all another European trophy even if it is the 3rd tier. Direct qualification into Europa isn't such a great incentive for a team to push for it. For eg: Roma are already in the Europa based on their Serie A standings. Let us suppose Roma were fighting for top 4 this season for which they need to get a result on the final day of the season (assuming it is the coming Sunday). Would they prioritize the game on Sunday to seal top four and thereby ensure UCL qualification, or prioritize the UECL final a few days later, which would only guarantee them a Europa spot? Giving the UECL winner a shot at qualifying for next season's CL IMO would make the tournament more attractive.


Nut-King-Call

Yes, straight to the Groups. I will not elaborate.


michaelirishred

Yep 100% and I was having the same conversation with people during the week. They should be put into the final playoff league route of the qualifiers. This means their europa league status is secured but still gives them a fair whack at the big prize. I think if you win a competition with 32+8 teams you deserve it


[deleted]

[удалено]


LS_Fast_Passenger

I think that would be unfair - they would be playing less number of games compared to others in the tournament.


pervertedwatcher

Yeah, i think they should. As you said, it would make the Conference league that more valuable and that more prestigious if the ultimate prize was a chance at CL football.


LS_Fast_Passenger

Exactly. I think it would give a great boost to the tournament, just like how it gave the Europa.


pervertedwatcher

Agreed

Are there any Americans who dislike when it is called 'soccer' instead of 'football' or are they accustomed to it?

We dont like 'soccer' so I thought you wouldnt either.

Bring him back CumBlast, I know you have contacts.

Nope- not us. Admins by the looks of it.

I just PM’d him, usually he react pretty quickly to my PM’s

How? His profile doesn’t even come up.


delidl

Me and Elyas already talked a lot in PM’s. I simply went to my chats and can still PM him


[deleted]

Really? That’s interesting but according to Reddit he doesn’t exist


ManLikeNiz

Yeah his account completely disappeared, I can't even DM him

Probably got doxxed/hacked.

100%, it’s very fishy indeed, yet the usual trolls never get banned.

There's some very obvious people who've had multiple accounts banned already, but they won't get touched for some reason.


LordVelaryon

eh, you should better than most that those very obvious people *actually tend to be punished*. Those that aren't it in most cases is because they are legit and gave proof about it.


Raikuun

I know about some, sure. But there is some very obvious ones you guys aren't getting for some reason. I could provide some solid proof but cba tbh.

Mbappe is staying to become a sporting director.


aj6787

He’s gonna be the head of the caliphate soon.


OnePieceAce

I'll give Lampard credit for how he got the Everton defense to stop conceding 3 goals a game. Changed his tactics. Richarlison and home fans deserve much more credit tho imo


Cowdude179

How he nullified City and Liverpool shows how good of a manager he is


aj6787

Anyone can play park the bus tactics.

Reece James one less goal contribution than Generational talent TAA despite missing 3 months I’m hearing


FirminosShinyTeeth

Trent is miles clear of the 3atb merchant.


genk41

if only he track back and help christensen against madrid in ucl


the_studge

This the same guy that lost 3 FA Cup finals in a row?


Nuri__Sahin

It's weird how they compare Reece to a player they don't rate at all a lot. Well, it's weird until you see who is posting. If not him, it's the lad who's been on here for 12 years. Constant baiting and shitposting. 24/7. Edit - not 10 years.. 12!


nosmigon

Same guy that won the champions League with us yes?


narutosama77

Trent will have lost 2 CL finals in 10 days time.


addictedToArSocca

best RB itw. hopefully he joins City so he can win the PL


narutosama77

Walker is better but yes top 5 imo.


oscarpaterson

You started off so well


msf97

He’s a wing back. Has played 4 less in all comps, has 7 less G/A.

MrVegosh

You proved him right lol


msf97

So Trent plays deeper, and gets more goals and assists? That’s what your showing here Trent’s red bits go back to just before the corner flag, Reece’s don’t even touch the edge of the 18 yard box.

Lyrical_Forklift

> Nah you’re just talking shite at this point Liverpool is quite literally your most used word on this site


Seanxprt

More like his footballing ability gives him license to contribute offensively, or does that only count for Trent?


nbaylor1

Functionally, so is trent. Trent is actually given more offensive freedom than reece.


_LebronsHairline_

Functionally on the ball, Trent’s positioning is more like Kimmich whereas Reece James’ is more like Coman. Yea ofc neither of them play like proper fullbacks but Reece James is genuinely a part of Chelsea’s front line of attack in possession


msf97

Not at all. An attacking fullback yes. A wing back, no.
