Chatter from the sidelines
- English football: when women ruled the pitch The FA banned women playing in 1920 and didn't lift the ban until 1971
- Manchester City: Vincent Kompany defends fans over anthem booing What he said. The UEFA has some bloody nerve
- Astonishing, apparently well sourced quote on @5liveSport Sportsweek from unnamed CFC 1st teamer: "I'd rather lose than win for Mourinho." Wait... did Mourinho kill his dog, shag his woman or what? At the end of the day, the player's job is to win, surely?
- Sport | Pep Guardiola is close to signing a new 2-year deal with FC Bayern Well about time?
- The Barça players respond to reactions regarding their celebration of both the victory and their recent level of play, which coincided with Halloween I missed this? Video of the incident here
- PSG not interested in José Mourinho Real Madrid was the turning point in Mourinho's career for the worse, tbh. You can't deny his honours, but he seems to be poisoned goods now
- Tottenham U21 star plays match despite knowing his sister could die Zenon Stylianides's sister was suffering from blood cancer, and passed away 10 mins into the match
OP: done! Cheers, jeers, corrections and commentary pushback, you know the drill. Tomorrow service resumes as normal (I hope!)
