    Did you know my town has never been beaten by Barcelona or Real Madrid. Never played them but still something to brag about.



    This new stat that i see on MOTD about expected goals to be scored in a match by each team. Most important stat is the actual score.

    Corners won, possession in the last ten minutes or how many times a player said f*ck off to the ref are boring.

    Football has truly come to something grim when youth teamers with a handful of first-team appearances are publishing leaving statements like they've been there 10+ years, club legend or such bollocks. F**k off.

    Yup, I couldn't care less about that expected goals bollocks.

    A year or two back on twitter, I even saw an xT 'expected trophies' of something like 1.6 for Arsenal. I'm hoping it was a pisstake, but I genuinely don't know.

    This is just an example and not a dig at City as this happens everywhere. Its got worse this season I am sure of it. Too many fans on their phones rather than just enjoying being at the match.

    Does my head in.

    Does my head in too but it's not just football, seems everything you do now only exists if you're looking at it through a tiny shitty screen.

    I was amazed at how many ppl did it when we lifted the title. I wanted to see it with my own eyes not through a camera.

    How times have changed, i used to take a pocket radio to games and pass on latest scores to the lads i went to the match with. At full time and on the way out i would have strangers close to me trying to catch the final scores. The good old days.

    One club players? This is what you hate about modern football? That there aren't enough of this special players anymore or what? I love one club players.
    I don't like mercenaries who don't give a **** about the club they're playing for and are leaving as soon as there is more money available at another club.

    I hate the thing that there aren't much players to consider as one club player.

    Classic local breweries being dropped from shirt sponsorship because of moral outrage, only to be replaced by Chinese casinos, gambling sites and payday loan companies.

    Not necessarily modern football, but I hate fans moaning that the referee never gives their club anything. It's not for him to give you anything f**kwits.

    Imagine how shit your team must be to become so reliant on a single impartial person awarding you a set piece, rather than going out and trying to win the game off your own effort.
