Chatter from the sidelines
- Mourinho: "It is not easy for kids to go to school wearing Chelsea shirt when the club is not winning games. Probably they are bullied." But why would you wear a Chelsea shirt to school though? Isn't that why the schools have uniforms?
- Sarri: Europa League as important as Serie A for Napoli I feel you. I feel you
- Andros Townsend likely to seek move away from Spurs in January Dunno who's been following this, but Townsend got into a tussle with the Spurs' fitness coach after Monday's match. He put his hands on the guy and shoved him. Pochettino has kicked him off the squad, saying that he will not play Thursday or Sunday, citing Townsend's lack of discipline (but says that Townsend can work his way back into good graces). In addition to that, he's been fined by the club. Pochettino doesn't play when it comes to player's attitudes. There's a reason why he was called 'The Sheriff of Murphy' in his days at Espanyol
- Steven Gerrard returns to Liverpool: LA Galaxy life not been bed of roses for former Anfield captain Gerrard has been surprised at the breadth of the travel, the artificial pitches and spending LESS time with his family than he did at LFC. He's coming back to LFC to train (NOT PLAY), and probably shadow Klopp re: coaching stuff. Idek.
Chelsea 2- 1 Dynamo Kiev
Chelsea supporters have been cheering on Jose Mourinho. #oneofus #InJoseWeTrust
Word has it that Mourinho was surprised and touched that he's been getting support from the supporters. The interview he gave he seemed near to tears
Mourinho's family came out to support him, which is pretty rare. (He prefers to keep his family away from the sport; his son plays for Fulham development as a goalie, iirc)
The game was pretty bog standard, but Willian did that. Beautiful free kick
Willian has been WORKING this season when others have been letting Mou down
Bayern Munich 5- 1 Arsenal
Didn't Arsenal think that Bayern would come out hunting for blood? Or nah?
SMH. I am not going to dwell on this
Cool illustration (not mine!)
Barcelona 3 - 0 BATE Borisov
Neymar is a star. With Messi out injured, Neymar and Suarez seem to be growing every game.
Suarez got in on the party
Ter Stegen had to do his footwork
What's with Neymar's stocking foot on his head?
OP: Done! Cheers, jeers, corrections and commentary pushback, you know the drill! I do need to get some stuff done, so corrections will have to wait.
