Re: Maguire Axed from England Squad

only problem would be definitively adjudging 'intent'....

Re: Maguire Axed from England Squad

Probably not, so whilst we don't know as we are not on the training ground, it's a fair conclusion to draw that the foreigners have taught those cheats to dive. love the contradiction....since you admit that you dont know whats happening on the training ground, it would be an UNFAIR conclusion to d...

Re: Maguire Axed from England Squad

Re: Maguire Axed from England Squad

nah.....still dont buy it... maybe the link is the: * increase in popularity of the First Division/EPL * greater access to televised games * etc etc Either way the notion that diving for penalties is a purely foreign import should be dismissed for the empty generalisation that it is.

Re: Under 14 Cup CC v NU

For my part, each club at each age group from U12+ should only have maximum of 2 teams per age group and we should do away with JPL and JSL. on the one hand youre concerned we lose players because of demoralising losses but on the other you want to place a quota on numbers at clubs....where do the ...
