feck I loved seeing sideshow bob embarrass himself
Oh, sorry. Wasn't looking that much into Schalke. Thanks for the info
Last Sunday really brought back memories
And then collected his fourth runners-up medal in the World Cup a month or so later though he couldn't play in the final.
Are you a Brazilian still in denial?
A better way to put it is: At his peak, Bob Paisley was more dominant than Sir Alex Ferguson
Norway had never lost a football match against Brazil(4 matches, DWWD)
Yes, or Paisley was more prolific
Ups. Of course
Until that day may statment was true.
Sergio Ramos has more goals at club level and for Spain than Iniesta.
New Zealand were the only undefeated team in the 2010 World Cup ... but still went out after the group stage
Oleg Salenko has scored as many world cup goals as Lionel Messi.
False. Conte retained his job during the whole season of 2017/2018.
Pellergrini lasted 2 full seasons as well after winning it in 13/14
How did you forget that one ??
Christ, I knew we were on a roll at the end of 2002/03 and carried it into 2003/04 but I didn't realise that up until Rio's ban, we had 50 points in the league. The was 12th January and we'd played 21 games. We got 25 points from the next 17 league games.
What's this , make up wrong fun fact thread ? Some absolute howlers in the last pages.
2018 was the first final since 1982 without a Bayern player on the pitch, I’d reckon.
Jari Limanen’s the only player that played international games in four different decades. He made his debut for the finish NT in 1989 and retired in 2010.
Bergomi played in 4 world cups, without playing a single match in the qualifiers for any of these tournaments.
Balotelli only has one assist in the premier league: the championship winning goal of Aguero.
Prior to SAF, Aston Villa was more successful than Man Utd...
Casual win I guess
Acutally no idea how to forget that. Most likely the most memerable win in world cup history.
Josef Bican scored 395 goals in 217 games for Slavia Prague.
I think Tolisso came off the bench though in the second half, so the same thing applies to them as well i guess.
Maybe I should have posted in this in the weird feelings of football thread!
Balotelli is the only italian player to win the premier league
I had to check this one out thinking Chelsea must've had at least one, but it seems the famous Italians played for them just before the PL domination era.
Forgot that we sent Taibi out on loan less than 6 months after signing him too.
I thought Carlo Cudicini must have done, but presumably didn't make enough appearances to get a medal.
Kenny Dalglish signed Henning Berg, largely because a Norwegian national team doctor, thought England was leading 1-0 when it was 0-0
England vs Norway, 20 minutes in, Norwegian RB lays down after a heading duel. when getting checked on, he's being asked what is the score as a test question. RB answer correctly 0-0, but the doctor thinks its 1-0, and forces him off the field. Inn comes Henning Berg, and plays a really solid game, Impressing the present Dalglish enough to offer a trial, which led to a contract.
Carlo Cudicini and Federico Macheda both won Premier League titles. Fabio Borini also made a few sub appearances for Chelsea in 2009-10.
Barcelona defender Samuel Okunowo played against United in the 3-3 at Camp Nou in the 98/99 season, alongside Xavi, Rivaldo and Figo.
By the time he was 29, he was playing for non-league Waltham Forest in the 6th tier of the English football league.
Casemiro has never been sent off in his entire career. He does however have 82 yellow cards.
Imagine playing against the Brazil midfield of fernandinho and casemiro. One doesn't get yellow cards, other doesn't get red cards.
You are correct, forgot about him...
Alexis Sanchez and Federico Macheda have the exact same number of appearances and goals for United. (And thus the exact same games to goals ratio for us).
No Belgian player has ever been on the pitch in a CL final for the winning side in the modern version (so starting 1992).
in 2005 a 21-year-old Adam Greene played for Fulham, trying to stop Ronaldo at two different times in 2005, from his fullback position.
In 2009 he failed to get a contract with a Norwegian third level side, while on a trial there.
None of these players got medals
Willy Boly and Saul Bamber are actually the same player playing for two clubs.
Is that true? I genuinely didn't think Macheda scored or played that much for us.
Madagascan League side Stade Olympique L'Emyrne scored 149 own goals in a single game against AS Adema in 2002.
Incredibly, Sanchez coming on as a sub against PSG actually made his games to goals ratio slightly worse than Macheda's.
Macheda - 36 apps, 5 goals
Sanchez - 37 apps, 5 goals
Here are my sources:
Good lord. Our worst ever signing?
