transfer window closes today



Chatter from the sidelines
OP: The transfer window closes today, so keep an eye or ear out for surprises


Pictures
Southampton 0 -1 Swansea City

Shelvy, back from a four match suspension, was on the field.

Southampton had about 86% possession, seven corners, and pressured the visitors

Kyle Naughton, formerly of Spurs, is now with Swansea City for first team minutes. Elia played a good game, NGL. Everyone is expecting him to go off the rails like he's done since 2010, but he's been on his best behaviour on and off pitch (Southampton lad with the perm)

Ashely Williams (Swansea City skipper) was a beast. Defended like woah. Blocked an attempt by Mane at goal when the goalie was so far out of his box

Betrand got a red card for a reckless challenge. Then he went over to the sidelines and started to berate Gary Monk, the Swansea City manager. Then Koeman got in on the press conference whinging (like the Dutch coaches do over here, whinge) about the fact that it wasn't a red card. Dude, two footed, studs up, the lad had to be stretchered off. What would you call it?

Shelvy launched a screamer past the goalie. This picture doesn't do it justice. He was a little outside the box, and clattered it in the back of the net

Arsenal 5- 0 Aston Villa

Didn't watch the game b/c I knew it would be a mauling. Villa hasn't scored in the last ten hours of open play, so no one expected differently here. Ozil scored, got man of the match

Walcot scored

Alexis Sanchez wishes he were there so he could have scored

Giroud scored

Did this lad Hector score? Yeah, it was that kind of a match. It sounded like a mauling to me

Santi scored

He speaks English? And can write it? Well done

La Liga

I used to only watch Spanish commentary on La Liga, but now, I listen to Ray Hudson. His lyrics about Messi and Neymar are as descriptive as the best fanfic out there

According to Ray, Messi has more moves than a grand chessmaster, and he and Neymar make beautiful music together. I just... yeah

“Neymar and Messi are like Lennon and McCartney, and well Rafinha is George Harrison in this play” - Ray Hudson

Suarez did some excellent assists, made space for the other lads to score. So he's not the goal scoring machine, but he helps in other ways

That being said, Villareal weren't mugs. They brought it for this match. They were fast paced, good tackling, etc

This reminds me, I need to get one of these strips before they bring in the hoops next season. I really dig this strip, one of the better Barca designed ones.

Serie A
Even with the big clubs, it's really hard to get pictures of Serie A matches. When they say it's like tap water they aren't kidding

Sussuolo 3- 1 Intermilan

That being said, the Inter kits are some of the best around this season. Mercy

Interesting gossip around Shaqiri- Bayern supposedly sent him to Inter 'as a favor'. No, I don't know what that means

Juventus drew. They didn't extend their lead
