I think we’d have seen a different outcome if there was anything on the lines for Leeds.
Bit of good press for the club after all that spying stuff earlier on in the season.

Realistically they weren’t going to win both games & Sheffield United lose & a goal difference swing of 13. They could (...and still can) only finish 3rd or 4th

I think it was shrewd work by Leeds. Had they beat Villa then the GD swing was still too much to get automatic promotion.

Now the anger has been deflected from Leeds ‘bottling’ promotion (which they have) to the sentiment of ‘everyone wants us to fail’ thus taking unneeded pressure off their players ahead of the Play-Offs

Is that Scott Brown for Celtic, the Rangers player should have just ignored the ball and landed a nutt on him!

While we are at it is still winds the fuck out of me when players get 'fouled' and then grab the ball forcing the ref to give something, I would give hand ball immediately everything!

Not sure if it should go in here but whats happened to Real Madrid?

They sell Ronaldo and it all goes to shit.

Recently found thet ITV4 has started showing La Liga games and managed to catch the Real Vs Genoa game last week. Real were awful, and were lucky to come out of the game with a 0-0 draw.
The this weekend i noticed they got beat by bottom side Rayo Vallecano.

Their whole season has been a shocker, they may be 3rd in La Liga but they are 18 points adrift of Barcelona and have lost 10 games this season, compared to Barcelona's 2.

It's what happens when you're over reliant on one player, and then you lose him.... Real do have other excellent players, but they're all going down rather than up... the same will happen to Barca when Messi goes... they could survive the loss of Xavi and Iniesta, but Messi is a different thing altogether.   

Real are obviously going to do a Wellens style rebuild in he summer, starting with Hazard, it will be interesting to see if he can carry them.... I don't think so.  He can't carry Chelsea, they're slide coincided with losing Diego Costa... an ideal Prem player.

Costa probably first came to prominence at Rayo... his style ideally suited to the Vallecas left wing mentality of the club, and their support of Podemos.   Rayo fans will be very happy beating the loathed Meringues, with their historic fascist connections.

Pretty good weekend for them in Spain, what with the Socialist Workers Party getting the most seats in the general election, thus being able to form a coalition to keep the fascists down.

Reg , Costa played about half a dozen games for Vallecano whilst on loan.

The fascists have always been beaten down since Franco, the only reason they got 10% of the vote was an anti Catalan thing

Costa got 10 in 16 for Rayo in 2012... that was when I first noticed him, so kept on eye on his progress.

Spain is one of those EU countries with a nasty relatively recent history of fascism.... with the current events within the EU politically it is important that they're kept down by democratic means rather than conflict.  Spain needs to be a beacon, now that UK is abrogating leadership.

Spurs medical staff allowing Jan The Tongan go back onto the pitch when clearly suffering a concussion only for a few minutes later to practically pass out and collapse.

Very odd, wasn't it. Especially since the ref came over and had a proper chat with them about it before allowing him back on. Raises the question whether there are sanctions for ignoring the UEFA guidance on head injuries, otherwise what's the point in having it? Unless of course they assessed him and saw no symptoms until after he came back on.

Thing is if it were Rugby or cycling the team would be dragged over the coals and absolutely slaughtered in the media and my the regulator for letting it happen, but in Football it still just basically ignored!

tbf, as soon as he did show symptoms he was taken off. I think it's a bit different from, say, the incident with Loris last season when he was clearly affected but they let him play the rest of the game. I'd agree in general though football is very lax.

Time to follow the Rugby approach - 5-10 minutes down the tunnel for a proper assessment to be undertaken, including allowing symptoms to develop in a safe environment.  Let the team put on a temp sub during that period so the team ins not disadvantaged.
