4 minutes of extra time and they score half way through the 95th.
Then Sir Cunt has a right good laugh with the 4th official.

Suddenly Mark Hughes is complaining about the amount of added time being played at Old Trafford, eh? It didn't seem to bother him that much when he played there under Ferguson.  :wink:

In more important news, Leeds are top of the league.

Curiously, Leeds United are yet to lose a game this season in any competition. They have played fifteen games, won nine and drawn six.

On Tuesday night they face Liverpool in the Carling Cup. Obviously Leeds are now two divisions below Liverpool but they have a young, improbably determined team looking for a Premiership scalp to cap an incredible start to the season. I tried to get a ticket to see the match at Elland Road but it's completely sold out, which means that there will be forty thousand people there to see an unbeaten League One team take on an opposition who may well field a team containing several of the best players in the world. There could be a real upset.

The game is being shown on Sky, I will post links to streams on Tuesday. Could genuinely go either way.

The first time I saw this match in person was in 1992 for the Charity Shield match at the old Wembley stadium. Leeds won 4-3 and the fabled Eric Cantona scored a dramatic hat-trick. I remember in the last five minutes of the game the Leeds fans started to rather cheekily sing the classic Liverpool anthem 'You'll Never Walk Alone'. Undeterred, the Scousers joined in and the game finished with all 80,000 people singing the song at the top of their lungs. Probably one of the most memorable experiences of my life.

My most memorable football memory was also at the old wembley.
Division Two playoff final, one match for all the marbles (the marbles being promotion into division 1).
If City lost they could possibly sink into obscurity as players lose faith.
Gillingham score in the 81st minute and then again in 85th.
Bloody hell!
Dispondant fans begin to trapse out grumbling things like "typical city".
City score in the 88th minute, a few people caught on the stairs return to their seats, this could be interesting.
5 minutes of injury time on the board, Blue Moon starts to get louder as a few fans start to believe that tying this thing up isn't impossible.
90+3 and big boot football never looked so good, from the long ball the Mighty Goat lays it neatly in the path of Dickov who scores an amazing finish, 2-2.
Extra time was innocous so here comes the lottery of the penalty shootout
City score their first, Weaver saves!
City hit both posts with their second, Gillingham blast it over the bar
The next two are both comfortably scored, 2-1
Edgehill scores his penalty setting it up for some heroics for the young Nicky Weaver
He palms the Gillingham penalty around the post and sets of running.
YOU BEAUTY!
What a game.

I suppose I should preface this by stating that I am a Crewe Alexandra fan. As a Crewe fan growing up in Glasgow, opportunities for making it to matches are few and far between. When I was 13 or 14 my parents graciously decided to take a detour on the drive back home from holiday so that a family friend could take me to see a game. It was an FA Cup 3rd round tie. I didn't care that it was only against Telford United (a non-league non-entity), I was going to see My Team. I would have watched them play anyone.

We kicked off, and passed the ball about for the first couple of minutes, looking pretty comfortable until out centre back gave the ball away. Telfrod broke and won a corner. Our defence proceeded to stand still as a 5 foot 6 winger nodded the ball in at the near post. It didn't really seem like it mattered, they were only non-league. We'd comfortably win it regardless.

We played them off the park for the remaining 87 minutes, but every chance seemed to fall to our back-up centre forward, Michael Higdon. Every single chance seemed to end up a dozen yards over the bar. I have never forgiven Higdon for making that 90 minutes one of the least enjoyable of my sporting life.

That is my most memorable sporting memory. Sometimes I wish I'd taken the easy way out and just become an Auld Firm fan.

Well, my parents both hate football, so I first got into it when a family friend who lives in Crewe took me to a game while we were visiting. I was only 5 or 6, and I just got the bug I guess. I don't think they were expecting me to get into things quite so much and still seem bewildered whenever I visit and they find I still follow them.

That first game I saw them play, they lost 2-0 to Swindon. No idea why I thought supporting them would be a good idea.

Because soccer is a ridiculous sport where one or two lucky goals or unfortunate fuck-ups- things that happen in a matter of seconds-  can be the difference in the entire 90+ minute match?

It will be really quite interesting to see if Chelsea can win the league considering the fact that they aren't allowed to sign any new players, including I think loan players, for violating the rules during an attempt to sign a young player from Lens. If Didier Drogba is in fact injured, they might have to adjust a bit. With Joe Cole coming back and Yuri Zhirkov nearing fitness, it shouldn't be too much of an issue. My guess is they will play Joe Cole off Nicolas Anelka or utilise Salomon Kalou. I hope they win the league, I like Carlo Ancelotti.

I remember last season I saw Leeds versus Crewe at Elland Road. The game was pretty much even aside from Leeds scoring in the first half. It ended up being 5-2, which flattered Leeds somewhat given the performance. Later in the season, Crewe almost recovered from another at Gresty Road, the game ending 2-3 to Leeds. Here's hoping Crewe are back in League One next year anyway.

My guess is they will play Joe Cole off Nicolas Anelka or utilise Salomon Kalou. I hope they win the league, I like Carlo Ancelotti.

They played an 18-year old Italian from the Academy whose name I can't remember recently in Europe, and they have Sturridge is it, from Man City.  Assuming the transfer ban holds, and they have to operate as if it will until proven otherwise, I think they're going to be a bit more adventurous than most EPL clubs at blooding youngsters all of a sudden. They've got plenty of options up front, as do all the big teams, just most are largely unproven.   As you said though their default plan B will almost certainly be a 4-4-2 with Anelka and Kalou up top.

The crunch time for Chelsea is going to be the ACN. At the moment they look casual and they've got enough of a squad to get by without signing anyone in January, so the only major factors for them regarding this season are losing their African players for 4-5 games, and any long term injuries. Agreed about Carlo too; I never thought I'd say this but if anyone wins the league this year that isn't us, I'd like it to be Chelsea.

Next season is another situation altogether.

Sturridge is nowhere near as good as he thinks he is.
He needs somebody to take them under his wing and tell him to shut up. Terry or Lampard could do the trick I guess.

It depresses me that none of the Americans on the forum really give a crap about tackle football. I mean, normally, such a thing wouldn't really bother me, but my local NFL team (the Minnesota Vikings) has a man who can be referred to as Purple Jesus on national television without anyone really feeling put out. He's pretty good.

Hey, my best friend of 5 years is a hardcore Vikings fan (actually, her whole family is). I myself, being originally from Chicago, am a diehard Bear. High-five for both our teams having awesome quarterbacks (Favre, Cutler) and halfbacks (Peterson, Forte) for once.

I love how Bears and Vikings fans can come together in mutual distaste for cheeseheads. That's why I thought it was kinda funny when when some idiot writer at ESPN said that the only thing that could have been worse than Favre going to the Vikings would have been if Favre went to the Bears. Clearly, he doesn't understand the midwest. I know that Bears-Packers is the oldest rivalry in football and all, but at the same time, at least the Packers fans tend to have a grudging respect for Chicago due to their shared history. I think if Favre had gone to the Bears somehow, Packers fans would have been super depressed and secretly worried about how the season would play out.

But Favre going to the Vikings? I know Packer fans who reacted like they found out their mom just hooked up with Ron Jeremy. It's just disgust and horror.

You know, it's telling that I have no problem implying that the Minnesota Vikings are the sleazy washed up pornstar of the NFL. But between Randy Moss, the Love Boat, StarCaps, Brad Childress's pedo-stache, the Whizzinator incident, and the 1998 season all happening within my lifetime, I feel like it's justified.


Consider that our continued NFL success hinges in part on this man remaining sober:

Hell yeah, 2-0. Both against division teams, too. And we're playing the Rams twice, so that's two automatic wins at the very least. Minnesota next week will be a tough game though, Adrian Peterson is a fucking monster.

It wasn't even fucking close, either. Seattle had one decent drive the entire game, capped off by that lame little 1-yard TD flip. I fucking love Patrick Willis, hands-down the best thing to come out of the Nolan era. Not that he had a whole lot of competition, but hey.

Seattle needs to revamp themselves, seriously. They've got no one anymore, especially since Hasselbeck has what, a fractured rib now? I live here, and I can't wait to wear my Bears colors around next weekend when Cutler/Forte/Knox come to town and destroy babies.

I love how Bears and Vikings fans can come together in mutual distaste for cheeseheads. That's why I thought it was kinda funny when when some idiot writer at ESPN said that the only thing that could have been worse than Favre going to the Vikings would have been if Favre went to the Bears.

But Favre going to the Vikings? I know Packer fans who reacted like they found out their mom just hooked up with Ron Jeremy. It's just disgust and horror.

That's true. The rivalries are very different, between all the teams in our division really. Packers-Bears are two of the oldest teams in the league and have an epic, heartbreaking, riot-enducing rivalry to match. The Bears/Vikings rivalry is more like two brothers duking it out for funsies. Ffrom what I know, whereas Bears fans respect the Packers, Vikings fans just outright hate them. And I think that sparks a lot of mutual bad feelings between both those teams, and could lead to more ill-feeling about their ex-star QB going over to them.

That being said, when I was watching the Bears-Packers season opener last weekend, I saw a helluva lot of cheese heads wearing the number "4," so who knows. It could be a very vocal minority that is horrified by the purple Favre is wearing, and the rest of the fans could just not care / had been desensitized by the Jets thing.

It's a tough call, really. To me, the Vikings-Ron Jeremy comparison still seems a bit more apt. They're both fairly harmless and rather embarrassing as opposed to being criminals and both are technically successful in their fields (the Vikings are top 10 by win percentage) yet have never actually accomplished a damned thing worth mentioning. Whereas the Bengals are just kind of well, the Bengals.

From what I know, whereas Bears fans respect the Packers, Vikings fans just outright hate them. And I think that sparks a lot of mutual bad feelings between both those teams, and could lead to more ill-feeling about their ex-star QB going over to them.

Oh, definitely. Vikings fans love to antagonize the Packers. Plus, remember that I compared the Packers to someone who found out their mom is sleeping with Ron Jeremy, not to say, a betrayed spouse. Most Packer fans I know still love Brett Favre and aren't about to disown him. They just realize that they will never, ever hear the end of this if the Vikings continue to do well under Favre and there's no real comeback because Vikings fans are completely shameless. Also consider that I mostly know Packer fans who have the misfortune of living in Minnesota right now. There is no escape.

on a side note I think it would be great if there was a team called the aristocrats.

It's a tough call, really. To me, the Vikings-Ron Jeremy comparison still seems a bit more apt. They're both just rather embarrassing rather than criminals and both are technically successful in their fields (the Vikings are top 10 by win percentage) yet have never actually accomplished a damned thing worth mentioning. Whereas the Bengals are just kind of well, the Bengals.

I think the Vikings are the only team that could pull off having Daunte Culpepper (pre-injury), Cris Carter, and Randy Moss all starting and not win any championship game.

So, I grew up near DC.  That's right, I had the Orioles, the Bullets (now the Wizards), the Capitals, United and the Redskins.  Now I have the Nationals.  I thought it would be tough to improve on the Orioles, but I was wrong.  But the Redskins...  Jason Campbell is not playing well, despite the fact that we now have an offensive line (not a great one, but we actually have people playing the positions they are supposed to play).  Jim Zorn is not calling plays well, despite the fact that he insists nothing is wrong with the play calling.  Also, what the fuck happened to my goddamned awesome secondary?  I have a good team, I just need a quarterback and a head coach.

I like how we lost to the Falcons due to Gary Anderson's only miss of the year. That was when we had Cunningham instead of Daunte, granted, but people forget how good he was.


And we're playing the Rams twice, so that's two automatic wins at the very least.

In a related story, when I did my fantasy draft I skipped wasting a pick on a defense. Instead, I've been scooping up whoever plays against the Rams off the waiver wire. Not a great sign for the good people of St. Louis.

The Rams are so fucking terrible. They make the goddamn Raiders look competent by comparison, and the Raiders beat the Chiefs by a last minute field goal in a game that I have nicknamed the Futility Bowl.

That game wasn't nearly as bad as the UW - WSU failbowl last year.

I'll give you a hint: they were both 0-10
