Steve Kean in July 2011 after a few pints - calls Sam Allardyce a crook, and claims Rovers will finish in the top half of the Premier League table and win the Carling Cup

I agree with some of the comments that there's nothing really that bad about this video. Still worth a look for a laugh though

I've said it before, but for me, a great game of Football = a great game of AFL = a great game of League = a great game of Union. If the teams, in all codes, try to win, try to attack, then it's simply good viewing because they all have different skill sets that you can appreciate.

Don't get me wrong here, there are terrible games of Aussie rules played too.

Football tends to have more edge of your seat emotional intensity, but in general lacks the raw four quarters of gut running you get when two good sides face each other in the afl.

I like and watch both, but I'd still rather watch a poor game of Aussie rules than a game of football where both teams are happy with a point before they step onto the park.

It's about more than lack of goals, it's the lack of intent that shuts me.

Or the Eagles scuppering play in the Swans forward pocket in 2006, again, only a kick in it, 90 thousand people at the G: shit woulda got loud.


Yeh true probably in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney & Perth but they couldnt even sell those games out. 10 000 vacant seats in the 2005 GF. So obviously not to many neutral Melburnians gave a shit about Sydney & Perth being the centre of attention in there own backyard (77 000 only turned up to Port v Brisbane in 2004). Most people in Brisbane or overseas couldnt of given a rats either.

200 000 would of easily gone to see Citehh v QPR if the stadium could hold that.

& I highly doubt any AFL Games are watched by 1 billion people & i highly doubt it was the highlight story of the day on ESPN or BBC Sport like it was here on FoxSports.

When Citehh were down 2-1 in extra time you could just feel the pain the Citehh supporters were going to go through. It was another level of intensity. (i'm talkin destruction, chaos, slitting wrists, possible suicides). The cops would of been packing shit. The amount of destruction that would of been caused from 44 years of waiting would of been phenominal. Shit would of gone on for weeks. No Australian sport would ever get a reaction like that.

To see in the space of a few minutes the exact emotional opposite happen to the Citehh fans was brilliant. It was more than a sporting spectical. The way people would live there lives in Manchester if Citehh lost would of been totally different. It's something they would never get over & would always hurt.

Not to forget that QPR was also playing for its survival in the EPL.

That's proper intensity.

That shit is on another level to any Australian sport where we here would be pissed off for a few days, have a laugh & get over it.

You can't really compare which one is better to watch...everyone has their preference, hence, why we have different sports to play and watch and follow...If you talk about popularity, football is a world sport...hands down...nothing beats the Football World Cup...hands down.

the best thing about most of the crew in this forum is that they can see the good in both roundball and aussie rules. it is an inherently australian thing that you are only allowed to support 'footy' or 'soccah', and the two are supposed to hate each other. I love sport in general, and love each code for entirely different reasons.

Thats the thing

Imagine if all the countries that play the World Game played AFL Rugby or NRL.

We would be lucky to be ranked in the top 20 countries in the world. Chris Judd & Paul Gallen would be the equivalent to Tim Cahill (average to good players) compared to what the US Germans or Russians would dish up.

Soccer is the best of what the 7 billion inhabitants this planet can offer.

Its on another level.

Like it or not but the world just laughs when they see us play Convict Ball on a cricket ground in front of 100 000 bogans.

Athletic prowess is less important in football anyway. If it was the be all and end all theo Walcott would be the best player in the premier league.

I really like Football.

I don't care about other codes at all.

Stop talking about them, it makes me have to think about them when I could be using that time to think about Football.

After watching the Aguero goal in about 20 different languages, I think this commentator is my favourite. Norwegian I think. He goes off so hard he must have got a hernia from it... I love it

Strong rumours circulating that Kenny is goneski.

as much as I love him, cant say I would be too dsiappointed.

Another rumour going around that Jupp Heynckes would be his replacement.

Cool video. Really interesting to see what happens out of the usual cameras sights and the comradery between the teams. Skip past the beginning, not much interesting till later on.

I think i love Nasri srs

"I now hope the Arsenal fans can get on with their lives and forget me, they should celebrate their third-place achievement and I will focus on winning titles."

"If all that I was interested in was money, the easiest decision would have been to stay at Arsenal, picking up my money every week and walking into the team," he said.

Wow, you win the EPL and all you can talk about is your former team. Classless

Move on Nasri, move on

We scored more golas and finished a place higher without him in the team

It's over you BASTARDS!

I think good on him tbh , after all the shit and lack of class shown towards him i think it's only fair that he gives it back/

He really started playing well towards the end of the season imo.

There are many people doing this right now at Arsenal. I made the hard choice to come and fight for my place at a big club, where they never settle for second best, and I have proved it correct.

He is right though, we have plenty of players that seem to be there just to play, rather than actually win. Nasri is a douche but he isn't far off the mark.

It's just a fucking sport. I for one am glad Australian sport never causes these sorts of reactions.
