Zitto Zampe is me - although as a Saints fan it's not been the greatest of seasons... Two home wins in the league all year and the only high point being the win against City in the Carabao cup.I'll slink back off to lurking now... The Mack, Pap Day, Stark Reality, Thriller etc etc
See you in another 16 years!
"In a mere fifteen short years, you too could simply buy your Champions League title."
Never in doubt, eh Jimster?
It's been a few hours after the final whistle and I am still expecting City to throw it away. Even after the extra extra time, they came close.
But despite us fielding a team of Pele, Mbappe, Zico, Maradonna, CR7, Messi and any other player we want (because no-one else has money), Brentford did the double over us. They are therefore the benchmark of the beautiful game.
If I may co-opt the yute vernacular….lukaku did a madness last night
Man's a wastemans is it.
Evenin', slags. I trust we're all prevailing?Is there going to be an FF league again this season. There's a wooden spoon I need to retain.
Indeedy. I didn't realise it was already almost upon us again.Eyarrrr : https://fantasy.premierleague.com/leagues/auto-join/k44016Not a bad year for City, I guess... Despite ruining all of football and being 100 points clear after one (1) game, we somehow had to battle in the finals (I know, right?) and just about overhauled Arsenal whose eternal Achilles heel - squad depth - got them at the end. But Arteta should be proud. Hopefully he gets this fixed. Rice is good, City were in for him, but I dunno about £105M good, either. Seems a bit strong. But sure, a good move for the lad. CL football.Couple of departures will hurt. No Gundo, no cry. Well, a little bit. He made it look simple but turns out he was another Kaiser and not sure we have a direct replacement - Foden better out wide, Kalvin Phillips not a goalscorer, maybe Mateo Kovačić but he's got to learn the system and stay fit. Foden will get more time and that's good, because him and Grealish are going to feed the Striking Viking even more this season. He's just learning, remember. Good news on the horizon for the rest of the PL, though : City being relegated into the Phantom Zone for cooking the books etc. So every cloud, and all that.
Speaking of persona-non-grata owners - So nice to see the wheels fall of Chelsea. And I thought comrade Abramovich was over-interfering...
At least he didn't come with the bone-saws though. Can you imagine them calls if they underperform? "Eddie, the boss would like you to come over for a chat. Would you mind shaving your head and pulling out all your teeth before you get on the plane?" Ahh, but are they allowed to keep pigs? Hmmm - might save him.
But listen, them nice Al Saud lads, salt of the earth they are. They prop up our defence industry too. Litterally our BAEs. Call it "Bomber washing". Has a nice ring, no? No? They also have their fingers in the ownership pie/lasagne-layers of other overseas clubs, so y'know, Newcastle selling their squad castoffs to Saudi clubs for bizarrely-overinflated sums will be "Totally legit sources of income, m'lud. Whatabout City, anyway?"
I'd like to see good news come out of Kloppa Castle too. Sadio Mane was doing some heavy lifting there, right? It's a good squad, perhaps getting a few greys in the beard but Jurgen usually gets it right. I heard Mbappe was on the radar? That would make things interesting.Good luck to everyone onboard this year!
Anyone watch the Dele interview? Fuckin' hell. Heartbreaking stuff.
Read it earlier. Grim times. I don't like to see people waste their talent or be robbed of it, so good luck to him. Hope the terrace morons give him respect for opening up.
After gorging on fan reaction vids, I’ve just heard that after the game a Gooner approached Roy Keane and head-butted him!
I can't like, per se, common assault but Roy did sow these seeds back in the day.
