The grey areas are for UEFA interests.

The Spurs fans are in meltdown. LOL. So is Mourinho because supposedly he's already bought a house in Hale (posh area in Manchester). It would be sad to see Pochettino go give that he's half way through a project. It would be like if Klopp left LFC right now. The deflation would be real.

West Ham 3- 2 Manchester United

What was in the air at West Ham last night? I know the stadium is being demolished, but the club wanted to flog those chairs

Earlier in the day you had smoke bombs...

Police protecting the Manchester United bus

The Manchester United players were on the floor of the bus. They were pretty shaken and I can't blame them

Smashed the bus. The West Ham chairman blamed Manchester United (!!!) because they were running late. Have you ever driven around London? At all? (I avoid doing so if I don't have to)

More scenes

West Ham has a song about bubbles, hence the bubbles. This is its mascot

Awesome picture!

The match was exciting, but I think the Manchester players had been pretty unsettled

Manchester United's defence was switched off and shocking. DeGea is good, but not a miracle worker

Right, so my rant. Yesterday, when I was listening to sport radio, I heard West Ham's chairman boasting (again) about the conditions in how West Ham got the new stadium. So, here my question/rant/observation.

With the new stadium, it appears that there won't be any overtures of engagement from the club to the wider community, because that supposedly got 'covered' by the stadium being built, yadda yadda, the mandate from way back when.

But that was back in 2012, and the club is going to be in that community for a long time, so why not engage in the community around it? I'm not saying that you are going to go to the (great) extreme of Manchester City where they've revitalised that community to the tune of multimillion pounds, but by God, most football clubs contribute to the community that they're a part of.

With West Ham's new stadium, they've boasted that they have sold all their season ticket allotment, the biggest in London (about 53k - only second to Manchester United), they won't have to pay for policing, stadium upkeep, stadium staff, will get a good cut of food services. Their subsidised stadium costs now makes the West Ham chairman boast that they can afford to spend GOOD money on strikers (word has it that Benteke is their sights) and after all of that, they aren't bothered with engaging in the community that they've carpetbagged themselves into. Sod off, West Ham. All right, I'm DONE!

Memes/Social Media

And that is the gospel truth

Hummels translated statement explaining why he decided to leave for Bayern.
