  1. 1927

    1927 Funnier than he thinks he is.

    Dawson and Healey in particular made complaining to the ref into an art form. AWJ isn’t in the same league!

    Gatland's comments this week have been very restrained by his usual, setting-the-bar-low standards.

    Perhaps he has learned that being an annoying gobshite just makes you look like an annoying gobshite rather than a genius of rugby psyops

    Ex ref, Jonathan Kaplan's take on Jones' gobblin off is very good (from the Torygraph) :

    I thought his comments on the next lions tour and eddie jones were very tongue in cheek

    Eddie Jones is a twat. Whats with him and his opinions on No 10s. I think Jones underneath it all is a bit rattled. On paper England will win-but he's concerned. And I would like to see that smug little round faced cunt for once be silenced. It gave me great pleasure when he was halted in his tracks by Ireland. Same again tomorrow please

    Meh, he's just picking fights. I've played cricket with and against enough aussies to know how this works. Get bored and pick a fight - Ferguson did it, Mourinho does it. It means nothing. Gatland can see him coming a mile off which is why he is ignoring him.

    Make it all about the opposition or about himself and get them thinking about that instead of the deficiencies in England's team. I doubt it'll work but he's giving it a go as some of the Welsh team are very green at this level.

    Yeah, he's just on a wind up, I'd rather he didn't, but reacting to it doesn't help either.

    Poking Wales seems unwise when, on paper, we should have enough on Saturday, especially if the weather turns.

    I can see a few yellows in the match, and maybe worse.

    TBH I dont give a shit why hes doing it. I thought Gatland was a twat when he was doing it and I think Eddies a twat doing it.

    He doesn't strike me as the kind of guy that lies awake at night worrying what people think of him. Its all bullshit anyway, if Patchell catches a cold on Saturday for whatever reason the press will make it all about the mind games but it won't be, but that's how you build mystique as a coach.

    Instead of mouthing off I just wish he'd find us a genuine number 7 to actually put some pressure on Patchell on the pitch rather than off it. Robshaw is a reliable pro but the ball will be in the hands of the Welsh back 3 before he even enters the same postal district as Patchell.

    Robshaw reliable pro.... If he'd spent less time doing telly adverts you might have got further in the World Cup

    Win or lose tomorrow....there'll never be a video like this made about the welsh. You know why? Because however you look at it, no matter how good England are/were....there'll NEVER ever be a moment like this so humiliating in rugby, than the sight of a host nation...being dumped out of their own world cup in front of a home crowd. And just like some English fans dine out of their world cup win...I'll never stop dining out on this humiliation.

    I'd swap that every day for winning a World Cup and so would you. Aim higher, stop thinking of yourself in relation to England. This is why you always get bummed by average SH sides because you're obsessing about the unimportant. Most English fans are far more concerned about NZ and Oz.

    Good luck to you tomorrow. If you win it'll be well earned.

    I agree with this. While there's always an extra frisson of excitement about playing and especially beating England I'd much rather be competitive with the SH than obsess about one game per year. Kinda bored of grand slams now as we've won so many over the last decade or so. Give me regular wins over Aus and SA and the odd one over NZ any day. We're too bloody parochial.

    Two aren't mutually exclusive. I'd love for Wales to have a good consistent record against the sh sides. But equally I'll take champions of the nh and beating England not far behind.

    Well when I said the only team I thought that caveat was obvious ;)

    England remain the only team in rwc history to be a host nation knocked out of the pool stages.

    No we aren't losing against the sh sides because we're 'obsessing' about the unimportant. We're losing against them because we simply aren't good enough for a multitude of reasons

    We actually haven't won that many. Two in last decade. Anyway. How can you be bored of being champions of the nh?

    Sound like my mate who is a ccfc supporter. He said to me after one season in the Premier league that he was finding it boring anyway. Ha ha

    No it's definitely an attitude problem. That Oz side that turned up in Autumn were very ordinary and got easily dispatched by other NH sides. SA are in a total mess at the moment. These sides are very beatable and Wales should be beating them, you're treading very close to being the personification of the problem. You don't believe you can win against SH sides.

    Last year Wales were a shit kick away from beating England, the same England side that went down to Oz and did them 3-0 in their own back yard. Tell me again why you aren't good enough?

    Fuck me this is getting like counseling.

    Wales are a very good team, can they match NZ yet? Probably not but no one can bar the Lions it would seem. But Wales should absolutely be matching and competing against every other side. Winning away is tough so tomorrow is a big ask but I bet they give it a damn good go.

    This. I know Wales have huge gaps in some areas in the squad but we've got some quality throughout the side. This side may not be capable of beating New Zealand, nor England tomorrow, but there's no reason why a Welsh team that hasn't been decimated by injury, with a squad picked on form, and a coach who isn't on a sabbatical with the Lions, can't beat any other of the elite teams.

    I'm sick of hearing the same old excuses every autumn, we have to have more belief and get past this inferiority complex.

    Also yeah Eddie Jones is a dick, a man who picked Hartley as captain can fuck righht off if he starts talking about saving the dignity of the game.

    The comments about Patch are also well out of order. His talent speaks for itself and I hope he has a blinder tomorrow.
