Chatter from the sidelines
- Serie A could overtake Premier League more than likely. Italy has been doing well in Europa - the English supporters would rather avoid Europa if they can't get into top four, worse if it's top three for England- Europa is seen as a problem no side wants (save Saints, the Jacks and West Ham, because they don't know the BALL ACHE that Europa can be- Spurs know and moan about it constantly- I think this is their fifth straight year in Europa). I think Juventus is the only Italian side in the CL right now?
- Guardiola says that he's responsible for defeat, not the doctor link in German, google translate powers, activate!
- Pep Guardiola: ‘Bayern doctor quitting changes nothing - I’m staying here’ Manchester City and Mansour snap their fingers and go, "Curses, foiled again." They really need to let go of getting Guardiola, and focus on moving on.
- David Luiz’s mother defends son on Instagram after humiliation by Luis Suárez D'aw and cringe in equal amounts
- Bring back Gareth Bale, the galáctico who can win you the Premier League I...really don't want Bale to come back to these shores
- Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli tops abused list on social media quelle surprise. Welbeck and Sturridge and Sterling are up there, too. But Sterling is more abused on his perceived sexual orientation more than anything else (I... what?)
- Belgium will surpass the Netherlands next year on the UEFA coefficient ranking the only constant is change
- Mathieu: "Luis Enrique is a special person. He doesn't talk a lot with us. We know what to do, but we don't really know what he thinks" [eq] Welp
- Man United's David De Gea 'says yes' to Real Madrid transfer, only agreement between clubs is lacking If true, his agent is advising him wrongly. Why leave Man United where you're first choice goalie to go to Madrid to sit on the bench. Have you seen what's happened to Navas? He's disappeared into a black hole and is never coming back out. In terms of club popularity, Man United is popular and high profiled too (as much as Real Madrid fans might say otherwise). Don't do it David, I don't care what your gf is telling you
- Bayern Munich must make plans for future without Philipp Lahm and Xabi Alonso before it is too late, warns Matthias Sammer
football is about finding and cultivating the future. I can understand why players in their mid 30s who've done and seen it all are ideal, but they're on the downward slide from here on in
- Jose Mourinho is Louis van Gaal's greatest achievement in football, says Gary Neville
I agree, respect should be given to Sir Bobby Robson too
- Transfer Watch: Fiorentina midfielder Alberto Aquilani reportedly targeting summer move to MLS oh?
Bringing this back, because when last has one seen a Kappa anything? They used to be a big brand for sports clothing back in the 1990s, early naughties. They seem to be less into football and more into ski wear and golf wear
I have no shame!
OP: done! Cheers, jeers and commentary pushback, you know the drill. I'm going out for a walk and I shan't be back until the evening. A question, can anyone recommend me a good jump rope? Mine is kinda well... ropey. Thanks!
