    [Football] EFL Cup Final - The Thread

    Fingers crossed this happens. It won't though.

    [Cricket] Test Series- England in India- January & February 2024

    And now he's out, having wasted the past hour scratching around for about 12 runs. Pointless stuff.

    [Cricket] Test Series- England in India- January & February 2024

    That strategy is all fine when you're five or six down, but we're 8 down here. We won't last more than two hours (horribly optimistically!) regardless of tactics. It'll make no discernable difference to the state of the pitch IMO.

    [Cricket] Test Series- England in India- January & February 2024

    Foakes has just about go away with that. But why is he patting the ball about now anyway? He should be looking for runs and taking risks. Adding 10 runs with two bunnies is not going to make the difference. A quick fire 30 or so in boundaries might though.

    [Cricket] Test Series- England in India- January & February 2024

    So what would be a challenging score here? I guess we need to be 270 ahead to have a chance of winning. To be fair, some of the balls that have got our batsmen have been shockers, and if England bowl well they might have similar luck.

    [Albion] Pascal Groß the raumdeuter

    Our greatest value signing ever puts one onto the head of one of the all-time club legends. Standard. What a time to be alive. These two will be talked about for decades to come.

    Chelsea will win just because we need Liverpool to for Europe qualification purposes.

    [Albion] What has been the most frustrating home draw against a shit team this season (thus far)?

    I'm not sure why Everton is even in this conversation. Dyche has got our number and Everton had one cleared off the line and the one where they blazed over when well set. If anything, going a man down and then equalising at the death in the face of blatant unpunished time wasting shit-housery...

    [Albion] Are Roma any good ?

    Sparta Prague have impressed in this tournament so far and they took Galatasary apart last night. I'm really hoping that Liverpool use squad rotation and rest key players for their game against Sparta. If they do, hopefully they'll get turned over. Liverpool and Leverkusen are the only two...

    [Albion] Are Roma any good ?

    Well Ajax are absolutely shit. How they won last night is a mystery - the Norwegian team hit the goal frame about 6 times, oh and it's the middle of their winter break so they're not even playing regularly. Sadly, Villa will hammer them. As for Roma, they're 6th in the table so not unlike our...

    [Albion] How are you getting to Rome?

    Ah yes. Still, I'll be going from a proper airport where you don't have to walk across a field, close to Brighton and where the flight will be full of Albion.

    [Albion] Brighton v Roma

    But despite the kerfuffle and panic, I reckon Rome will be far easier to get to. If what you say is right about Leicester and we do receive more tickets after 3,500 have gone, well maybe we have a chance.

    [Albion] How are you getting to Rome?

    Not by me you're not. But then again, I've got miles better flights than you and I paid less than you. 10:10 from Gatwick, returning at 18:50 - £123 all in. :thumbsup:

    [Albion] Brighton v Roma

    No chance. I'm Albion+ but we will easily sell 3,500 before it gets to us. As such, I've pinged an ex colleague (who was a member at Roma when I knew him 7 or 8 years ago) to see if he can snag me a ticket in the home end if required.

    Looks a bit "Palacey"

    10:10 on Wizzair from Gatwick :vuvu:

    [Football] Dani Alves, 36

    Only last night I watched a bit of the Inter Miami game and thought to myself that Dani Alves was a glaring omission from the Inter Miami team sheet, which is chock full of ex-Barca galaticos past their sell by date but still excellent. Now I know why. What an absolute tosser.

    [Albion] Europa League - Away game tickets.

    I really want to travel if we play in Hamburg. Quick question for anyone who might know: why are we only likely to get 2850 tickets? There were plenty of empty seats when Shakhtar Donetsk played Marseille last week. Would we get more if we requested them? (I doubt they'll qualify anyway...

    [Albion] Gus Poyet on Sky Sports News

    Never say never. He was a good coach to be fair. He'll need to ditch the self importance though and accept that these days, the coach is a coach and only a small part of the club in the grand scheme of things. Stropping off whinging about ceilings and budgets is a non-starter. If he does get...
