OP: Please note, NSFW football confessions are at the bottom of the post after the news in tweets end. The break to these confessions is clearly displayed after the general football confessions. Please don't read if easily squicked or offended. This is an ONTD offshoot comm, so this is how we roll, but for the more sensitive ones out of us (or those reading this post in church), mind the gap.
Normal service will be resumed come Monday morning.

But will they play for Man City in the near future, though?

Klopp on Shaqiri: "That's not normal after 4 days - adapting so quickly to our style of play." #LFC— James Pearce (@JamesPearceEcho) July 28, 2018
Hmmm. I'm not convinced by this player, tbh.
Mourinho asked if Sanchez looks unhappy.— Neil Jones (@neiljonesgoal) July 28, 2018
"Look, do you want him to be very happy with the players he has around him? We are here just to survive and to have some not very ugly results. Alexis is the only striker we have. And the poor man is there trying his best." #LFC #MUFC
Mourinho needs a break from football, tbh

Colour me intrigued, OP
The French team are many things, but the best looking? Hmm.
They make a handsome pair in photos.
He's going to pay them, OP. Supposedly the Spanish tax man can storm into Italy and demand it from him if he doesn't.
He reminds me of Xabi Alonso in some ways, tbh. It can't just be me.
NSFW confessions start now. If you're easily offended, or squicked, TURN BACK NOW
> YOU STILL HERE?
>ALRIGHT THEN, BUT DON'T @ ME
He reminds me of the actor from 30 rock and Inception. Whatever his name is.
Well, gives another meaning to football's coming home.
I'll get my coat.
OP:Done. Sorry, the ICC matches are boring because the big stars are on holiday and there's only so much moaning from Mourinho that I am willing to take on this fine morning. These confessions irked/shocked and made me laugh, so I thought I'd share them with you. You're welcome, or, my apologies. Insert which reaction works for you.
