The only way to solve this problem in Jurassic Park is to improve education of these dinosaur coaches, fitness clowns & scientific cowboys.

It's been a tough week to be a Wolves fan.

The revulsion towards the behaviour of a significant section of Wolves supporters has been widespread – and the criticism has been coming from all angles.

Barry Glendenning of the Guardian called the fans "clowns", ESPN's Daniel Pountney suggested they "grow up" and the WSC message boards were alive with the hot topic: "Are Wolves fans fickle?

Samir Nasri, Its A Shame

Wrighty7 at related • 0 views
For me, there is no way back now for Samir Nasri.

As soon as he had a little pop at us Gooners that was it.

His Arsenal career is as dead as the dead-leg I received at football training last night.

Cast yourself back six months. Could you imagine feeling like this towards Samir?

As a lifelong football fan who has watched the sport at almost every level of the game for the last 40+ years, I have developed some dyed in the wool attitudes about many things, not least of which is my utter contempt for the vast majority of the people who run our sport, from the owners and directors of the clubs to the crooks and clowns who administrate our game.

Players have got it pretty good in the Premier League nowadays.

Thankfully, such killjoy measures have clearly not quite made it to the J-League in Japan just yet.

Roy Has Shown Arsene The Way

Watching England's performances in Euro 2012, and against Italy in particular, got me thinking about the best way of using Theo Walcott.

Seeing the inept James Milner huff and puff to zero effect and lose the ball every time he got it; and watching the useless Ashley Young fail to beat his marker once in the entire game, I started from a position of outright fury.

Olympiacos 3 – 1 Arsenal: Match Thoughts And Individual Analysis

Arsene surprised and to an extent disappointed with the selection of Vermaelen and Santos in the starting eleven. In fairness though, the performance of the team showed it was a necessary evil because the manager's tactical blindspots created a vulnerable mishmash of talented but inexperienced players and seasoned professionals lacking match sharpness/form.

That was bizarre. Not just clown showing up at a bachelor party bizarre, but a clown shows up a bachelor party and is really the thought to be dead ex-wife of the groom bizarre.

Toronto and D.C. played to a 3-3 draw that may have been the strangest game at RFK ever. After 90 minutes, a butt-load of stoppage time, and 6 goals, I'm not even sure what happened.

What a hot mess that was on Saturday night at Robertson Stadium. More offensive struggles, two straight red cards and lots and lots of angry Dynamo fans who let official Kevin Stott have it in full force. It's exactly how the fans should react in the stadium and the heat of the moment, but after taking a look at the replays on both calls, Stott got both red cards right.

I can't believe I came on here yesterday writing with optimism about our new defensive tactics. I really should have known better to expect Wenger to be able to pull it off, however a good idea it may be.

The guy can't coach defence. Time and time again we see decent players come to the club and immediately look like clowns.

I didn't see most of the knockout round games the USA played at the Women's World Cup. As much as I love Abby Wambach and friends, there are at least two other people in this world who trump their athletic exploits. And so I spent the Brazil match in a car. I spent the France match . . . also in a car.

Post-Match Chalkboard: Improvement In Possession

Hot Time In Old Town at related • 0 views

I recently read somewhere (I wish I could remember where so that I could link to it) that OPTA uses the amount of passes in a game to determine possession. This surprised me. Basing possession on passing has the potential to produce some skewed results. The most obvious argument against this is that a team that uses the short passing game is going to have a larger portion of possession regardless of the actual amount of time that they truly have possession.

Never Mind "Oh When The Spurs". "Send in the Clowns" Is Perfect
