Hi

Bayern 2 v Man City 3

This was a great game - highly entertaining but sometimes for the wrong reasons.
City started the game in their usual attacking mode and That consistant striker Aguero put them in front after a horrific mix up by the hosts....... Game over we all thought. Not a bit of it. The referee was handing out Yellow cards like The Salvation Army handing out the War Cry.

A decision for hands in the penalty area took 4 Minutes to award the penalty. The penalty put Bayern level and after this the physical Germans dictated the game with some good counter attacking but they could not score. Then another penalty for a push in the area gave them another penalty which again was converted.

From then on it looked all over when City had a player sent off.

But a crucial substitution brought on Mane ( who used to play for Beyern ). A stunning free kick levelled the score against the run of
play and in injury time Sterling tapped in a winning goal.

Job done.

Highly entertaining fare.

Cheers

Mike

Hi

Liverpool 0 v Bayern 0

By no means a classic. Liverpool were held to a goalless draw in an uninteresting game. Liverpool did create a few half chances none of which was converted by the usually prolific strikers. Mane was the major culprit. Salah was shackled by a very experienced defence.

The game became one where both sides had settled to a tactic of spoiling.

I believe the 2 legged matches create a more technical game where the home side has to try to defeat teams that purely try to stop the away side from scoring what is known as a valuable thing to take for the home leg.

hi raggy

Yes United played well after their slip-up against PSG in Euro Championship.

Pogba and Rashford carved huge holes in Chesea's defence. Second half they played a defensive game - they did so well that although Chelsea was allowed over 80% of the possession United's Keeper did not have one shot to save.

We have been drawn away v Wolves ( Yes yet another away to Premier league sides. I watched Wolves over the weekend. They are a good side.
And they have a manager who can out-sprint Clopp !!!!! lol

Just off to watch Liverpool play Bayern.....Should be a cracker.

We didn’t get to many games but I think our late one was at Molinieux. A big roar from the crowd as we entered the stadium which we assumed was a goal but, no, Trevor Hockey had got sent off. He didn’t play that many games for Norwich and memory is a bit foggy but I seem to remember him as being a bit of a liability.

Mind you, I think Norwich’s regular centre half could pick up a few bookings. Though I liked him and he gave many years good service for the club both as a player and later on the staff. Last I heard of him, reported on local tv, he was in a nursing home with Alzheimers. I guess it can strike anyone but he was another of the players where the impact of frequent heading of the ball was questioned. Apparently before the illness struck, he would pride himself on being able to listen to the football scores read out and recite them all accurately.

Only local interest I suppose but he was popular and a one time “hero” of mine though if I could have emulated anyone, it would have been Kevin Keelan, a goalkeeper with quick reactions and capable of quite instinctive saves.

Unlike Steve’s (jesting) “I could have been someone” (to which a Pogues line could come to mind…), I don’t think I’d have gone anywhere in sport. I did play in goal in primary school and 1st and 2nd year secondary school but lost confidence after heavy defeats against both Caernarfon and Aberconwy. I might have tried to pick up again when we moved to Kent but the school was one season hockey and one rugby union (neither of which I liked at the time, never got on with hockey and being left handed or then saw a point in rugby) but would never have made the grade, plus most goalies seem to be over six foot and I never grew that big.

Cricket. I suppose in my dreams, I could have batted like Viv Richards or bowled like Michael Holding – WI had loads of talented players when I started to take an interest in test cricket in the 70s but, realistically, the only thing I was reasonably able at was catching a ball. Even then, not that marvellous – I’ve seen plenty where I can wonder just how in the hell the fielder even got to the ball – others where I may feel that Boycott’s granny as well as me couldn’t possibly have made such a hash of things.

In me student days on one occasion we drove in my mate's Standard Eight from London to Reading to see them play Bury. We got stuck in an almighty traffic jam just outside the ground. With windows wound down we heard three almighty cheers and one weaker cheer from inside the ground. We got in ten minutes late to find that the score was already Reading 3 Bury 1. There was only one other goal in the game, a Reading penalty. Buggeration.

Hi Raggy

I think that NOTLOB will disappear from the League. They are in a terrible state and have huge money problems.

It is a great shame that one of the best teams almost since since the formation of the league are in this horrible state.

I remember the Nat Lofthouse days. What a great footballer and model for many players but most clould not reach his standard.

I hope I am wrong.

Aye, Notlob it always was. Nat Lofthouse was their glory boy, though not with Man U supporters after he'd bundled their goalie into the net then got away with it. As for Preston, well they had the Preston Plumber, the greatest of the greats, the sublime Tom Finney. And when I was fourteen we played Preston Catholic College and I got Thornleigh's second highest score of the cricket season. AND I ran one of their lads out with a spectacular throw at one stump, a direct hit, from the square leg boundary. I got a mention in Thornleigh College school magazine for my exploits in that match. My life's been downhill ever since. If only my mum had forced me to wear my ugly NHS specs, I'd have been up there with Botham, no messing.

There's early days and early days, Sen. Even if Norwich were to lose all remaining games and Ipswich were to win every one of theirs, Norwich would still finish above Ipswich.

I'm afraid both Ipswich and Bolton are involved in the battle for safety down the bottom. A good run of form could still see either achieve this but (and maybe it's just me) I'd be particularly doubtful about Ipswich achieving this.

I think the Norwich result was a great recovery from the 3-0 loss against Preston mid week. Leeds still have a game in hand and could go top but Norwich are still in there.

hi Steve

I have finally ( I Hope ) got sorted out with my phones, Broadband etc.

So I was able to watch the whole match on my big TV.

You are right , the first half looked grim for Sours but the second half was completely different. Spurs took the game to Dortmund and attacked them having pressed them into making mistakes.

They were worthy of the score and they don't appear to have missed "Arry" or or Deli the belly flop merchant!!

I am licking my wounds from United's performance on Tuesday. We knew we hadn't a hope of winning the Euro Championship, but going out like that !!! without a whimper was more than disappointing.

We'l have to see how we go on against Chelsea in the FA Cup.

Hi Steve

I have have only just been able to use broadband and my landline since last Tuesday so have not been able to get any football on tv.

I was at Old Trafford last night and saw United overcome by a much more superior team. We really knew that this had to come sometime. Most of my United pals were prepared for it. We did not think they would be able to stand up to the top teams in Europe.

Philosophically perhaps last night will be a guide to our weaknesses.

Chelsea next then then Liverpool ( I think). We will have to play better than what I saw last night.

Like you Jon,I reckon 'banter' and a bit of piss-taking are quite all right and can be funny.

Usually Norwich supporters are reasonably well-behaved and manageable.
There are only a few extra Police officers stationed around Carrow Road when there's a big match on.

But I believe some clubs have notoriously rumbustious supporters and a few who are downright nasty, which spoils the Game and brings it into disrepute.

Mocking opposing fans about the tragic death of a young man in an air accident is nothing short of evil though. Ignorant louts.

Things I can't understand either Sen. A couple that stick in my mind were.

A trip to Millwall back when we lived in Kent and in the bad old days. The guy probably was an idiot being dressed in green and yellow (or at least my parents had none of us with anything identifiable) and the scene was a massive crowd chasing one person with police on horseback coming in to split things up.

Another was a Stoke supporter who seemed to thing it quite clever to nick the bobble hat from my probably about 7 tear old brother's head...


On the other hand (they won), Spurs vs Norwich league cup final where we bumped into a lot of Spurs fans on our way home was very friendly. Also and later (I didn't get to this one but other family did), Sunderland vs Norwich actually led to "The Friendship Trophy"

It can all be a bit of a mixed bag, I suppose. Once in a blue moon, I used to like going to a particular pub in a Welsh village to watch a football match. You could guarantee a lot of "piss taking" from supporters of different clubs but could be sure everything was in good fun.

Yes, if the Canaries move up, my husband will be at Carrow Road at every opportunity to watch the top teams play against us.

Still a fair way to go Sen and say the top 10 in the Championship are pretty competitive. Sheffield United (playing one more game) took pole position last evening, being 3 goals up against Villa but Villa pulled 3 goals back in the last 8 minutes (plus extra time).

If they do go up, the next challenge would be to stay up. Since I moved to Norfolk I think they went up under Nigel Worthington (to be ended by a disastrous last game when Norwich gave up against Fulham) and under Paul Lambert.

It seems a long while since they had better stability up there. Their best seasons were in the early days of the Premiership. They did finish 3rd one year and the next, become the first English team to beat Bayern Munich on their ground in the UEFA cup but then things went wrong (and there were a few questions over the then chairman, Robert Chase and his spending policy/the clubs finances). I doubt we’ll see those days again.

As said before, on off following with me but I've often at least kept an eye on things.

Hi

I have not been able to watch this week's matches due to a problem with my Broadband. I think the comments on refereeing are fairly common.

In my experience in playing Rugby ( both Union and League),and Cricket
Any bad decisions that tend to go to the top sides. In RU certainly their was quite a lot of politics involved as the refs were pressured to favour the top teams.

Regarding the current football situation the top 6 teams are in a tight scramble for the top positions . Any poor decisions become more important.

I was able to get to the Etiad to watch Man City comfortably beat Everton to enable them to ( temporarly ???) take top spot. Liverpool
have a game in hand to re-take the top.

I wonder what Clopp will try to take an advantage....don't think he will get away with clearing the pitch !!!!

Looking forward to both the rugby and football matches coming up. There are some mouthwatering ones as the European Championship matches start after the recent brake.

The linesman was watching the byline tussle involving Lallana and a couple of West Ham players in case of a tight throw-in call, so he missed the offside. Later on, Salah was called offside when he was almost through on goal when he was clearly onside. It just happens, though I hear that Liverpool are accused of gaining more than they lose over a period. Dunno. Liverpool were nervy again, and they need to keep Lallana, Keita and Matip on tbe bench and get Hendo and Gini in the midfield. Let's hope the Ox gets a game or three this season and that Joe Gomez gets well soon. West Ham did park the bus brilliantly for long stretches. A draw seemed fair in the end.

A mediocre display from Liverpool tonight. West Ham (a team I hate, they ruined my 9th Birthday and I've never forgiven them) could have been 3-0 up at half time.

I say 3-0 because Liverpool's goal was offside by a country mile.

If they continue to play like that they've not a cat in hell chance of winning the title and you may not believe this Steve I would like them to.

Leicester 0 V Man 1 United

Another win for Ole and his push for the top. United won ugly after scoring early on the decided to sit on the lead and trust to create break-away goals. Unfortunately Leicester did the same until almost the end. Still , this is a good win after all Liverpool could only draw with them last week and L.Pool were at home and we were away.

I watched City 3-0 but not a good performance from City.

Liver Liverpool I think they are getting nervous ..... what Fergie used to call " Itchy Bum Time. !!!

Wales were great and never gave up after being 16 - nil down. They are going to be hard to beat.

The Scotland game was not convincing as they allowed Italy to get three late tries.

The England v Ireland game was great as England pulled off a great win against the favourites to win the title.

Husband has just hollered through from the study that Norwich City are winning 2 - 0 against Leeds, with only 15 mins to go! Pukki has scored, and also Vrancec.
Excellent news! We're still hopeful Norwich may go up at the end of the season, but there's a long way to go yet of course.

A clear foul in the penalty area is a stonewall penalty, Mike. There is nothing in the laws of the game that says the bar is set higher for fouls inside the box. And a very clear foul it was. As for fouling the last man In a clear goal-scoring opportunity, the key word is "opportunity," not "dead cert.".

hi Steve

I would'nt describe it as " Stone Wall Penalty and certainly not a sending off. The player had lost control of the ball and it was not certain that he would have recovered enough to have scored.

Penalty yes red card not for me.

Cheers

Mike

A stonewall penalty denied and a stonewall sending-off denied. But a draw seemed fair once those two outrages are taken off the table.

Hi

Liverpool 1 - Leicester 1'

I watched the full game on TV. Almost like the night before ( Man City ) Liverpool shot out of their traps and scored very early on. After that Liverpool appeared to ease up. The game de-generated into a boring game with poor passing and little or no pace, surprisingly, especially for Liverpool. Their defence appeared disorganised. And just before the interval Leicester in the shape of harry McGuire stole a goal from a hesitant Liverpool defence.

Second half was Liverpool trying to pierce a stubborn Leicester defence. Leicester made several breaks and created some havoc in the liverpool team. They more than earned their draw.

Liverpool had a penalty turned down which seemed to have demoralised them.

They still have a 5 point lead but will have to play better than this to win the League.

Cheers

Mike

PS Chelsea got flattened 4-0 to make the chase for top 4 interesting.

hi Steve

I know that your " tribal" moans are you just getting us going.

I do not know why Ole picked that side. Perhaps he's trying to give some of the younger players a chance for him to see what they can do.

It nearly rebounded on him as Some blunders were made by a couple of his introductions.

Burnley have always had a place in my heart. I used to love the Jimmy Mc.ilroy era. As you say....top man both on and off the field.

We have had a number of battles with recent teams and they have

Become one of our bogie teams.

I watched the City game....They scored in 25 seconds and after that they played a lot of rubbish.

So there you are it's wide open for you. I will be watching tonight. I am sure they will win if they play anything like their top form.

Cheers

Mike

Howdydoo, Mike. I've been enjoying watching Man U's revival under Ole (see, I'm not as tribal as you thought!), but he made some strange picks tonight. Why did he leave Herrera out? And Lukaku is a definite bench man in my book. I felt a bit sorry for Burnley, me boyhood team (hail Jimmy Mac, one of the greatest men ever to grace a football pitch), as Man U did one of Fergie's late escape acts (as Ole would know!). Anyway, cheers to Rafa for the favour tonight, and let's hope Liverpool can do the job tomorrow. I have BT Sport Mobile and I'll be watching!
