The Football Ramble Forum The Football Ramble Forum en Copyright 2018 2018-07-22T07:43:28+00:00 British players abroad thread <p>Everyone likes to see Premier League clubs be made to look like twats, and what greater example of that is there than Ademola Lookman getting the winner for Leipzig while Everton get battered at Arsenal? Now we’ve got a good number of players fleeing these shores for pastures new I thought it might be a nice idea to have a place to keep track of them. </p> 2018-02-03T20:36:17+00:00 The TV Thread <p>I couldn’t see the old TV Thread, assuming that it belonged to someone who got kicked or something. So here’s a new one.</p> <p>I wanted to ask if any one had watched Romanzo Criminale, and, if so, is it worth watching? Looks pretty stylish and I’ve got it on Sky Player. </p> 2011-10-15T23:38:05+00:00 The OFFICIAL Liverpool Thread <p>Okay here goes!</p> <p>We all know the current situation that one of Britain’s most successful football teams currently finds itself in - they need shot of their owners one way or the other and it seems that after several years of rumour and conjecture (it is now approaching 2 years since The Guardian proclaimed they would almost certainly be sold by the end of the week), this may finally come to pass.</p> <p>What I would like to know is, what do people feel is likely to be the long term outcome of all this?<br /> Do you think that they are liable to be bought by someone in the Sheik Mansoor/Roman Abramovitch bracket who will put them back up with the big boys?<br /> Do you think they will get bought be a mid level player like Randy Lerner who, whilst not exactly scrimping, isn’t throwing oceans of cash at Villa, keeping them competing between mid and upper table?<br /> Or do you think that the next owners are gonna be as bad or worse than the current lot, able to buy a big club on the cheap and run it further into the ground?</p> <p>My gut feeling as a fan is something akin to option 2, with a bit of 3.</p> <p>Answers on a postcard… </p> 2010-09-14T04:57:00+00:00 The International Football Thread <p>Apologies if there is already a general thread for international football - I searched but couldn’t find one.</p> <p>I am watching Mexico absolutely running rings around Brazil. Mexico are winning 2-0 with an hour gone, and they are lining up chance after chance after chance.</p> <p>This must be painful viewing for a lot of Brazil fans. Despite playing on one of the worst surfaces I have ever seen (an artificial American football pitch covered in weird ridges, bumps and holes in the turf), Mexico are pinging the ball about and threading passes through the tiniest holes in the Brazilian defence, whereas Brazil are just trying (and failing) to brute force their way through the Mexican back line. </p> <p>Now that Mexico have a decent striker in Javier Hernandez (and, to a lesser extent, Aldo De Nigris), they could really be a team to watch. </p> <p>Mano Menezes, on the other hand, has his work cut out for him… </p> 2012-06-03T21:38:14+00:00 Training and generally ‘getting fitter’ <p>SO I figure that a lot of us having new years resolutions that in some way shape or form relate to getting fitter. A single thread where we can keep track of how each other is going might serve as a motivational tool for each of us. It’s worked well on another site, between myself and the other 2 administrators when we all three got rather overweight.</p> <p>I’ve started some pre-season training today. Went for an 8km ride on the pushbike (completed in 22mins) and spent about 45mins doing some yoga and stretching when I got home. I can definitely feel that I’ve not done anything in a while…normally I’d ride double that distance and feel the way I did when I got home :S</p> <p>So…how are you going with your training/fitness/losing weight etc? </p> 2013-01-04T01:58:37+00:00 The OFFICIAL Transfer Rumour Thread <p>As requested by BigDan83, get all your transfer tittle-tattle here <img src="" width="25" height="24" alt="top hat" style="border:0;" /> </p> 2011-01-13T17:55:54+00:00 Premier League 2018/19 <p>Time for a new thread for the upcoming season. </p> <p>So there will be a winter break in the Premier League from 2019/20 in February is that not bad timing with the CL round of 16s being in February, I know teams will get a rest but they will also have no match practice for 2 weeks? </p> 2018-06-08T12:22:23+00:00 The OFFICIAL Film/Movie Thread <p>There doesn’t appear to be a ‘proper’ film/movie thread where general film/movie chit-chat occurs, just the occasional little one. Thought it could have the same treatment as the ‘OFFICIAL Music Thread’ &amp; have a thread of it’s own.</p> <p>Any aspiring film buffs out there? Any movie nerds shuffling about?</p> <p>New films. Trips to the cinema. Any films coming up on t’box we should check it out. Favourites. Stinkers. Yadda yadda yadda.</p> <p>Let’s kick it off with the basics, favourite film everybody.</p> <p>Has to be City of God for me. Incredible film.</p> <p> </p> 2011-01-13T13:05:13+00:00 THE NON-LEAGUE THREAD <p>Just so me and Welwyn don’t bore you all with tales of Conference obscurity.</p> <p><br /> I’ll start you off with the highlights of yesterday’s Cambridge v Halifax match, including a funny incident when Halifax captain is sent off.</p> <p><a href=""></a> </p> 2013-08-12T11:42:11+00:00 ROBBIE KEANE WORLD CUP - NICKPERSON!
