POF's Recent Activity

  1. POF replied to the thread Phil Jones | 2017/18 Performances.

    Based on Southgate's post game comments that he was "fine" and "no worse than before the game" it was obvious he was in arse covering mode and knew he'd messed up. It was a scandalous decision to play an injured player in a friendly, injections...

  2. POF replied to the thread SAF's worst signings.

    I agree. This team could have dominated Europe and it's such a shame it failed to work. The main reason in my opinion is losing Stam in the same summer. Veron obviously wasn't very disciplined defensively but played best in a central midfield...

  3. POF replied to the thread Zlatan or Rooney?.

    Very interesting question because they are such different characters. Rooney burst onto the scene at a very young age, didn't improve a lot with experience and tailed off very early in his career. Zlatan, while also an incredibly talented kid,...

  4. POF replied to the thread Official unofficial Republic Of Ireland thread - the giant Danish turnover.

    The "giving it a lash, nothing to lose mentality" was the second half vs Denmark. How did that work out?

  6. POF replied to the thread Official unofficial Republic Of Ireland thread - the giant Danish turnover.

    Besides Eriksen it was 1-1 going into the last few minutes. Ireland opened up in this game, gave a quality opposition player time and space and got absolutely murdered. Changing to a more offensive approach at half time was a mistake in my...

  7. POF replied to the thread Luke Shaw nearer to Manchester United exit [The Times].

    For a variety of reasons it has been a disastrous signing. If United get a £20m offer for him they should think it's Christmas Day.

  8. POF replied to the thread Official unofficial Republic Of Ireland thread - the giant Danish turnover.

    Re Clark, it's not really disingenuous now he has lost his place in the starting line up. It's a big worry for the future if he can't get back in the Newcastle team. Saying Denmark only have Eriksen is what is really disingenuous. He is head and...
