    I do feel bad for Sancho and Saka. Despite what goes on during practice, seems like poor judgement from Southgate's part to put those two on before more veteran players, even if the squad is super young overall. Pretty sure guys like Luke Shaw or Kalvin Phillips or Jack Grealish would've been able to take a kick. Is Henderson one of the players he took out to bring on Rashford and Sancho??

    Italy were pretty outstanding in the games I watched though. I applaud a bit of shithousery from time to time, when applied under the right circumstances, and Chiellini's tug really isn't that different from a standard tackle just to break up a play in the middle of the park, just more cartoonish.

    I feel bad for this generation of English players because they're all such class acts, there's no John Terry or Beckham in there to get angry at. Not sure how much my desire to keep laughing at the Brits outweighs my sympathy for the players, so here's hoping they at least win some meaningless trophy like the League of Nations at some point.

    Sorry to see the rat-faced weasel do the Samba Kings last weekend.  I think just too much shithousery in that game, nothing got started with the tactical fouling.  And I guess Messi deserves his International gong at long last.  He won't be around much anymore.

    Your time will come again.

    WHATCHALL KNOW 'BOUT (patois) BRENK-FORRDE? (/patois)

    My thoughts wander casually to the Fatnasty League and wonder if their Billion Dollar Brain (I understand their recruitment strategy is based on stats crunched by the owner's gambling businesses resources) has scouted some under-the-radar diamonds a la Bamford and such?

    Regarding the usual suspects, I think this Chelski incarnation are going to be tough to beat.  Looks like Tuchel is der real deal.  Can only see City 2nd, tops, this year.  Regardless of who (if anyone) City sign, TT has got Pep's number now.

    Might this be the year Manure pull it off? I think they got lucky and over-performed last season (plus penalties). Do Citeh need Grealish? Only if they sell Sterling IMO.

    Arse will be struggling for Europa league. Our best players are two 20 yr olds in attack and a left back who gets injured a lot… but not as often as Partey. If Arteta can’t coach something into this squad this season he’s for the door.

  • JimsterJimster Let go me ting, duppy, let go me hand 6,526 Posts
    I think Arteta will come good from what he learned under Pep.  He, like most others, just needs to get the players in to execute the method.

    Messi on a free?  City say they are not in for him (the year Barca need him off the payroll)

    Wild times right now. I would love to bring a little bit of ridiculous to the world like Messi to Aston Villa would be hilarious. Or to join Suárez at Atlético Madrid lol. But I know this will all end up more realistic. Good times.

    Messi > PSG sounds about right.
    Still fancy Chelsea for the PL.  Un*ted have a strong squad but OGS I still think is being carried by them, rather than him being some genius.
    Wake me up for the CL knockout stages, nice one ar kid.

    Messi anywhere but to the highest pay-cheque would be a nice surprise, but does look like he's going for the PSG money... and linking up with Neymar again. Chelsea? Hmmm. They're very good, but presently only got Harry Rednapp's grandmother Timo Werner up front? Giroud left, Lukaku wants back... they'll be up there. If Citeh get a striker (Kane or other*) and things click, they're still the top side IMO. Liverpool look like they need squad investment. That one injury to the admittedly brilliant and integral VVD derailed them, but if returns at the same level and Klopp gets a couple of extra options in I think they'll be back at it. Arse being out of it**, I'd like to see Leicester, and to a lesser extent Liverpool, maintain a top 4 presence but the spending of Man U, Citeh, and Chelski makes it hard to imagine. The only positives I can see about Grealish to Citeh & Jadon Sancho to Manure is that Southgate MIGHT TAKE THEM FUCKING SERIOUSLY IN FUTURE.


    * Grauniad had an article praising Ings as a wise investment, but no love for Bamford? I'd take him and sell Auba + Laca and free up some money for further squad investment. I'd also sell Willian + Pepe to buy Gunnarsaurus a new hat.
    ** I predict Arsenal will be 7th next May. Surprise me Arteta.

    is the strut doing a fatnasty league? A friend invited me to join his league, if I can put the same team on two leagues I'll do it

    You can put a team in as many leagues as you like.

    My own religious beliefs prevent me from fielding any Manchester Un*ted players and the re-jigged schedule-buster gameweeks around Christmas always catch me out.

    @Ocka won by one point last year, these Scandinavians obviously too much time on their hands 

  • ppadilhappadilha 2,092 Posts
    I have jizzoined that league. The other one I got roped into has some draft business going on and I'm getting worried it'll be a lot more work. I don't need another tamagotchi right now.

    150 million for 'Arold Klaim? Somebody sit Mansoor down in front of a screen and show him some Russia world cup and Euro 2020 footage.

    It's mad money for him.  He would improve the side though.

    Gut feel - I can see 'Arry coming, with some complex shuffling that makes Murdoch's tax affairs look simplistic.  It will mean people going.  Jesus or Bernardo looking likeley.  Raheem, I like him, but ... creates more than he can finish.  Massively frustrating to watch.  I can also see Pep offing him to Arteta.

  • DuderonomyDuderonomy Haut de la Garenne 7,538 Posts
    I've read Bernardo wants to live by the Med. I really don't want Sterling at Arsenal, and don't think we need him - plenty of cover in that position. Saka & ESR >

    Jesus I've never understood why they bought him. Too lightweight to play upfront in the Prem, not particularly fast, not particularly skillful. You'll sell him at a loss.

    If I was Pep, I'd offer Levy 75 for Son instead. Much more mobile, can sit on the defender's shoulder and stretch the field, opening up space for all his false 9s.


  • JimsterJimster Let go me ting, duppy, let go me hand 6,526 Posts
    Jesus is a star-shaped peg without a hole.  He'd excel somewhere that plays to his strong points.  Maybe if no strikers come in, we'll see him getting a bigger role.  Although Ferran Torres has had a lot of pre-season minutes.  Son would be 100 plus.  Son > Grealish but Spurs wise not to take that kind of hit.  Plus with Grealish, Foden, De Bruyne, Bernardo, Mahrez, Sterling, Meerkat and Silky Ilky all wanting a start, do we need more creative midfielders?

    Fuckin’ hell. Great start of the season. Feel bad for the arsenal fans. But happy for Brentford. Great debut.

    They came to play, deffo. I know Arsenal were without their heavy hitters but no arguments about the result. And the Brentford crowd applauded Saka coming on.
