- England's attempts to secure international future of Arsenal star Alex Iwobi rebuffed as Gunners teenager commits to Nigeria Too bad. But Jay Jay Okocha is his uncle, so I can see the bond there. Besides, Nigeria is a big side. But Af Con every two years, brah?

Torres celebrated his birthday the other day. So here's him, fresh faced in his first stint at Atleti
Premier League Fixtures
Newcastle 1- 1 Sunderland
Sunderland drew first blood. Defoe always, always gets goals. Why did he leave Canada though?
Newcastle fought back in the second half
A Newcastle supporter ran out on the pitch to celebrate with Mitrovic (why do people do this?). But at the end, it's Norwich who's benefited.
Heyyyyy, Rafa! He's having to spin some straw into goal. What is this alchemy?
Southampton 3- 2 Liverpool
Joe Flanagan got named captain yesterday! Nice to see a local lad leading the line
Studge and Couts got a goal
Southampton stormed back in the second half. Pele showed up...
Mane (not pictured) was the MOTM for me. People are moaning about LFC not getting into Champions League - not with the squad that we have. It amazes me how the former manager spent so much, so badly. Klopp has a lot of work to do on a LOT of things before LFC can chirp about CL. We might not even get back into Europa after this season!
I can see why Southampton refuse to think of Mane leaving - he makes the difference. Spurs are supposedly in for him and he supposedly is interested, but Southampton has blocked his path for a while
Tottenham Hotspur 3- 0 Bournemouth
Spurs got the first goal 45 seconds into the match. Goddamn
Alli provided Harry Kane's assist for the second
Eriksen slotted in the third. Spurs are still five points behind Leicester, so here's hoping none of their players are injured on international break!
Manchester City 0- 1 Manchester United
Marcus Rashford strikes again! He's having a fairytale moment
The game was a damp squib, though. The action was off the field and in the stands
LvG is crowing about Champions League qualification. Let's not get too crazy there, sunshine
Hart and Sterling were carried off due to muscle injuries and will be out for a month. Re: Joe Hart, Forster and Butland, over to you! Word has it that Guardiola wants a different goalkeeper, so Hart might not be at Man City for much longer
Real Madrid 4- 0 Sevilla
Bale has broken Gary Lineker's record for highest scoring British player in La Liga
Damn it, Sevilla!</b>
Valencia 0- 2 Celta Vig0
Uh... for a guy who played as a defender, Valencia doesn't seem to have a defence. How, Neville?
Anyway, Neville will not be showing up for the England friendlies re: the NT. He has to do something re: Valencia, stat
Ausburg 1- 3 Borussia Dortmund
Dortmund were down one goal. I remember looking at the result in Fotmob and saying, "Enjoy it, Ausburg, you'll pay for it. And Bam, so said, so done
I'm a ball watcher, I'm a ball watcher, don't know why, why, why, why...
I cannot pronounce that guy's name. Vowels, what are they good for, eh?
OP: done! Cheers, jeers, corrections and commentary pushback, you know the drill! I mightn't be around much for international break, because running and stuff!
