news round up



Chatter from the sidelines


Pictures
sorry about the minimal news round up, but not many things interested me today.


Men's new kit for Mexican football first team
There's been the controversy re: the Mexican shirts and Adidas? For the men, they are totally black with green highlights, for the women, green and black. People aren't happy, I've read?

Ha! This is how I know that Steven Gerrard is a father, because this is #dadjokes to a T

Match pics
In no particular order, yeah? I have less an hour to do this, so it won't be to the usual curated standards, my bad

Dortmund 3- 0 Schalke

Neer neer neer neer, Batman! (and robin). Nice to see so are we shipping this now? I'll take this over him and Götze, tbh

Someone over Bleacher report is all, "Put the games away, Dortmund, you can't play with Juventus" and I'm like, "CAN'T A TEAM LIVE?!" GDI

I can't get over how good Reus wears them knee highs. I do it, and my legs look like sausages in a too tight case

Yayyy, we're moving on up!

I'm putting up pictures around the match (before and after) because the match wasn't that great. Oh, it was? I'll get my coat

Also, the resolution of Dortmund's pictures hurt my feelings. Like they're shot with hipster lighting, aka grainy and you can't see a thing. High resolution for me, bb!

Premier League
Manchester United 2 - 0 Sunderland
Again, pictures in no particular order, and I'll post the scores if I remember them

One of Sunderland's men got sent off- but they sent off the wrong guy! To be fair to the referee, he was speaking to the linesman to make the right call, but the linesman was out to lunch, obvs

Rooney scored. It's too early in the morning for me to look at his face willingly. So we'll go with this. Yes

Yayy for Janzuaj- how do you spell/pronounce his name?

Blint and Herrara had more passes than the entire Sunderland team COMBINED. Thanks, Squawka!

Falcao played well, drew a penalty for Manchester United - and van Gaal called him off the pitch before he took it. The supporters clapped him warmly.
Burnley 0 - 1 Swans

Burnley got an OG- own goal not original gansta- hah, I kill me. Seriously I do

That being said, I do have big respect for the Swans. They went from a League 1 outfit in 2003, to Championship and then PL, and then going from 14th place finish to 8th (where they stand now). They've had Roberto Martinez and now Garry Monk, former players who managed the club and have done right (mostly) by the club in terms of their management.

Swans have a lot of former players from Southampton, Spurs and Arsenal on their books (who come to the Jacks) because of lack of first team opportunities at their former clubs. I respect how Monk (their manager) makes it seem like a plus. That you can come to Swans, use it as either a spring board to your career, or make it a 2.0 remodelling. Yeah, that's all I have to say about the Jacks- but you go. I don't mind Welsh teams in the PL at all if they'll all be like the Jacks

West Ham 1- 3 Crystal Palace

I won't lie, the match was interesting, when I got to watch it. I was knitting and writing a story while the match was in the background

Today's letters are O and G- because own goals were the name of the game yesterday. Tragic!

I'm distinctly meh on Crystal Palace. They have the loudest supporters which is awesome- but their cheerleaders and American eagle makes me go, "Eh?"

West Brom 1- 0 Southamptom

West Brom drew first blood in seconds of the opening whistle

Schneiderlin was working. I do hope that the Saints can keep him

That Pullis magic was just too strong for the Saints yesterday

La Liga

Suarez found his goals

Beez in the trap, beez beez in the trap

The trident of Barcelona being hardened.

Barcelona all smiles as they are now in the hunt for the title. The Barca supporters are trophiless- and hungry

Almería 0 -0 Deportivo la Coruna


Nil all, y'all

OP: right, I gotta dash. Have walks to go on before the Spurs vs Chelsea final at Wembley - academy talent vs polished imports! It's going to be fun. As usual, any broken links, pushback and whatnot leave in the comments. I have to finish a story, do a couple of projects today, so I won't be around much. Speak when we do!
