Don't know if anybody's watching Spanish football on the television, but Eibar are at home to Athletico Madrid and the conditions are terrible, after heavy rain the pitch is sodden, was towns pitchs any worse?! was it called off to early ? I didn't see Blundell Park, but cant help thinking the game has gone soft and perhaps we could've played because after it was called off it became dry and stayed dry for most of the afternoon

Got to take into account loads of things I guess. And am sure with it being a TV game swayed any decision  



“To put it in gentleman’s terms if you’ve been out for a night and you’re looking for a young lady and you pull one, some weeks they’re good looking and some weeks they’re not the best. Our performance today would have been not the best looking bird but at least we got her in the taxi. She weren’t the best looking lady we ended up taking home but she was very pleasant and very nice, so thanks very much, let’s have a coffee”

Every game's a tv game in Spain!

I think they called it off when they did in case it got worse. No-one wants to be the ref calling it off at 2.30. They'd rather get stick for it being called off too easily than waste thousands of journeys as opposed to the hundred or so.

In Spain the TV companies call the shots even more so than in the UK. And the money from those rights is shared much more inequatably.

And Spanish football is flipping boring to watch, asides from a select few matches. We might be behind on an international level but we have the most exciting and open league system in the world, and we shouldn't sacrifice that for anything. Even if it means not competing at international level, an exciting league is better than a series techincally good but boring 0-0 games until the 80th minute, AKA Italy or much of the Spanish matches.

This has nothing to do with the initial thread, I know. I just got back in and have had a few, and am missing the bueaty of the English game (I live in Spain). What happened last weekend with the FA cup could only have happened in a league strucute like ours: be proud of it!

It was so unpredictable  yesterday ,  someone had to call the shots . Maybe for the sake of Telford who were presumably  very near to Town when the final decision  was made rather annoying  .   The pitch would have been torn up and taken weeks to repair .  Just glad it was a home game . We now have to hope that Dover won't  go the same way on Tuesday , now that would be a long way for nothing .

Are teams compensated  in situations  like this ? Or is it a grin and bare it .

Dunno which spanish footie you watch but it ain't the footie I go and watch, which apart from tv, is mainly segunda or tercera division.
If having paid £20-25, watching 2 teams boot a long ball up the pitch with lots of chasing n tackling in the freezing cold with cr.ap food n drink then yeah England's the best. Myself I'd prefer to be in say, jaen, watching players who can actually control and pass a ball, in the warm sunshine, lovely stadium surrounded by mountains, nice jamon boccadillo all for 10 or 15 euros. But each to their own!

Load of rubbish forza. Yesterday I watched the top 2 teams in England play each other and the current league leaders played for a draw in the second half, not having a single shot on target and going to 5 at the back for the last 5/10 minutes despite being the home team. Now that was exciting stuff.
