Has anyone else noticed that the pitch at Fratton Park seems to have been built on top of a house?

It's only really visible in either of the penalty boxes, but there's a definite anomoly in the surface in the shape of ridge that runs from left to right all the way along the centre of the field which is noticably higher than the rest of the pitch.

Surely this can't be legal?

I think it's more from camera side going down towards the far stand. Other teams have sloped pitches too (though maybe not as much at that level), Welling in the Conference South have a one goal higher than the other.

Typical that as soon as we go down Portsmouth go and put a roof on the away stand. I've been there 3 times and we've won 3 times though, so can't complain too much

This thread has dropped quicker than Paris Hilton's kecks in front of a camcorder.

Does anyone really give a shite about the Premiership anymore?

I'm guessing the answer to the above is "No", but in an attempt to light the fuse...

Who should the next England manager be?


Personally, I would be very interested to see Capello take charge.

He could come in to the job without having any ties to an English team and therefore have an objective view of who the best English players really are rather than picking mainstay deadwood or players he managed at club level.

Also, Capello plays for results as his numerous titles points towards. We all want to be entertained when watching a game, but surely the time has come for England supporters to be assured of a solid three points and potential glory rather than high scoring epics where they lose to teams they should beating and demolish the 123rd best team in the world according to FIFA?

Capello would be the perfect choice. Fans will moan about his defensive football, but he gets results, and the reality is that this present England side isn't going to win by playing nice football, as it isn't good enough. Capello will utilise the defensive strength of the side (apart from the goalkeeper), and will get more out of the players than McClaren was capable of. He's by far the best option, well apart from Alan Shearer of course.

Gabriel Marcotti suggests that Capello isn't normally the sort of person to say 'please, giz a job', and suspects that the FA intend to engage his services in some form, either as manager or the experienced eminence gise for a younger coach (Coppell?).

If Capello really wants the job, then why not? Given a choice of Capello or 'Appy 'Arry Redknapp - you can guarantee that if he's appointed, he'll promptly lose his libel action against the BBC, even if all the evidence shows that the Panorama team made the entire thing up after a particularly heavy session in the Slug and Newsreader - I think Don Fabio would win. To be frank, if England start winning with dull, defensively oriented football, would England fans really care? And on top of that, the ITV punditry team would be thrown into a quandry (assuming they know what one of those is) as to what to say when Italian teams played.

'Dull and boring these, Italians. Play just like our wonderful England tea... Doh!'

Dave - as they say - great minds think alike.

Based on today's performances, Allardyce may have been wrong to rule himself out; he could be looking for a job shortly.


My only fear is that the FA will assume that as he was able to outwit Siralex, they should now go for Gary Megson....

While the short bits of Radio 5 I've heard obvioulsy aren't representative, there would seem to be quite a few people out there who've phoned in to suggest that as a manager who
(a) has even less tolerance for players with large egos that Sir Alex
(b) a record of winning things
(c) some idea of how to get players utilising something other than 4-4-2
(d) frankly doesn't give a hoot what the press think of him

is not only available but has said he'd like the job, the FA should get him.

Unhappy 'Arry

Harry Redknapp has been arrested as part of the ongoing investigations into football corruption, according to Portsmouth FC.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/7116823.stm

I suppose I ought to put my admin's sensible trousers on and remind posters that 'Arry is innocent until proven guilty and hasn't even been charged - so we'll have to remove any references along the lines of 'I know a bloke down the pub who knows someone who saw 'Arry being given a large bung in the form of a lorryload of Frosties at the Watford Gap services' to protect Myles' bank account...

Edit - and the same applies to any references to Milan Mandric, Amdy Faye who have also been named as amongst those chatting to Inspector Knacker

Community service for 'Arry. His plea bargain is that he will accept a two-year contract as England manager.

I've now seen Everton's Andy Johnson, Wigan's Marcus Bent and a few other Premiership players do the action that Titus Bramble is doing in this picture after scoring a goal:

What the fook's it all about?

They're demonstrating their pride at being part of 'The Footballers' Education Programme: The Alphabet' programme. A 26 week course which most of them manage to pass... Bramble has completed week 1 with flying colours.

Now if some bu&&er could teach him to defend, and that 'roasting' is something you do to a joint of beef....

Moot point thanks to Titus, but is 'Liverpool's Title Hopes' a legitimate entry for Totodeath?

It's not entirely implausible, though, is it?
