  1. Champions League: Game 1, Man Utd vs FC Basel

    You sound just like my physio.
  2. Champions League: Game 1, Man Utd vs FC Basel

    I ran Dublin marathon in 2013 with a pulled calf muscle. Not recommended.
  3. Champions League: Game 1, Man Utd vs FC Basel

    Can't wait to sell him and that useless cunt Mkhi.
  4. Champions League: Game 1, Man Utd vs FC Basel

    Been one of our best players. You are truly cringeworthy.
  5. PL Matchday 4: Stoke City vs Man Utd

    Mourinho (with a straight face): I think probably it is a fair result, one team wanted to win, another team wanted to draw and they defended a lot and it is becoming quite trendy in the Premier League, this way of defending.
  6. Serie A Thread 17/18

    An entertaining match, even if it wasn't the result I hoped for. I suppose it's better than the 7-1 spanking from last season. Really brilliantly organised defending for an hour, then everything fell apart when Napoli were able to bring on fresh midfielders. Diawara is amazing. It's disappointing to see him get so few minutes at Napoli, because he was immense at Bologna and would play every minute of every game there. He's like a cross between Yaya and Busquets - always in the right position, great first touch, knows the best pass every time, and unstoppable going forward. He will be a monster in a few years, and he'll be eligible for Italy pretty soon too. Napoli have such a clever midfield. Allan and Jorginho are perfect together, stringing passes and moves across the field, with Callejon and Insigne always willing to drop in and offer a ball, and Mertens wandering across the forward line. Their movement is absolutely outstanding, and the way they transition as soon as they draw the opposition defence is so impressive. Zielinski was amazing when he came on too.
  7. Manager Sack Watch Frank de Boer: Crystal Palace sack manager after five games in charge Frank de Boer has been sacked as Crystal Palace manager after five games and 77 days in charge. Former England boss Roy Hodgson will replace him, BBC Sport understands. The Eagles are 19th in the Premier League after losing 1-0 at Burnley on Sunday - and failed to score in their four league matches under De Boer. Former Ajax boss De Boer, 47, only took over this summer, succeeding Sam Allardyce, who left after helping Palace avoid relegation last season.
  8. Serie A Thread 17/18

    Bologna are about to host Napoli. Will be a good test. I always love watching Jorginho play, it's absolutely scandalous that he hasn't been called up for Italy whent they're crying out for a regista.
  9. FA Premier League 2017/18

    For some reason I've captained Lukaku instead of Kane, so big Rom had better hit a hat trick later.
  10. FA Premier League 2017/18

    Eyes were on the ball, ref!
  11. FA Premier League 2017/18

    Spending all that money on attacking midfielders instead of defenders was a great idea, obviously. Klopp is a genius.
  12. FA Premier League 2017/18

    Some pass that.
  13. FA Premier League 2017/18

    Chamberlain on the bench, naturally.
  14. Republic of Ireland

    Really crying out for a consistent striker. I've watched four of the Republic's qualifiers, and seen you score one goal, with two shutouts against ten men. It's a shame. I thought O'Neill would be good at putting together a squad that was better than the sum of its parts. There are the makings of a decent, if unspectacular, side there.
