  1. Jesus. I forgot that. That's like holding the Winter Olympics in the summer, surely the first requirement for the host of a SUMMER event, is that it is capable of holding the event in the SUMMER.

    Paul Pogba 2017/18

    Hopefully Fred will allow Paul to play like he does for France. I am reading that Paul's agent has offered him to Barcelona however, so I wouldn't rule out a saga coming.
  3. Credit to Russia, they pulled off a great tournament - the football was good too. Now we have to see what Qatar can arrange in four years. I trousered £35 thanks to France as well. Result.

    Summer - 2018 Transfer Targets

    It's gonna kick off now, the tournament is over.

    Do you trust Mourinho?

    That would be the Fellaini that marked Neymar out of the game, yes?

    Daley Blind 2017/18

    Never felt we used him as much as we should have, wish him all the best back at Ajax.

    Transfer Window for PL - when does it close

    Premier League and Championship / FL clubs cannot sell to each other after August 9th. They cannot buy from anywhere after that date, but they can still sell.

    Luke Shaw 2017/18

    Well let's see what he looks like in LA, shall we? I mean fair play if he's in that shape.
  9. The thing is, expectations post tournament have been met. Most people would have said "Quarters" would have been a good tournament for us. However now this young team is carrying the pressure of the nation, but it seems to be in a positive way - a way of support and hope - rather than the "don't you let us down" pressure of past years. Again the last time I remember England being like that in a World cup in my lifetime was Italia 90. Hell the last time at all was Euro 96.
  10. To think on the Formula One grid that we only have one British driver and no Brazilian ones is strange indeed, given the history of both countries in motorsport. There is a new class of British drivers coming through, Lando Norris is highly thought of at McLaren, there's Alex Lynn, Jack Aitken as well. A lot of the younger drivers are going the Formula E route now, because the competition is a better showcase for drivers' ability. If you've got SkySports F1, then personally I'd recommend you check out Formula 2. The racing is much closer for a start.
  11. Yep. This weekend is also a good illustration why, SkySports F1 is acting like someone died because the Glorious Lewis Hamilton didn't win his home Grand Prix on this wonderful weekend. There are 21 other drivers, and they also have fans in this country too. Also please God someone make a shirt with that Kimi quote on the radio. "What, I'm not allowed to think anymore?" Please be on the grid next season, F1 needs you. He's up there with Liverpool, City and Arsenal...And approaching Jessica Ennis and Andy Murray.
  12. Yeah! What a weekend. Hamilton again shows his major flaw, mentally he's fragile - if things go against him in a race he still bitches and moans about it. He's got the talent and the experience by now to know to just make the best of it and keep his head down. But he's not the first, and won't be the last. Grand Prix drivers in general are prone to acting like children in the heat of battle.
  13. Given performances at the World Cup, I'm hoping we're going to get the benefit of several rejuvenated players - especially Victor Lindelof who has been immense. Romelu and Marouane have really hit their straps as well, pocketing Neymar isn't an easy trick for a start. Then there's the hope that Alexis will benefit from a break for the first time in years, he'll play in the US and be up to speed again for the kickoff. I'm still of course hoping that we're going to bring in another two "starting" players at least - and trim some extras off the squad too. Ideally I'd like another starting CB and a right sided attacker. We do need to solve the Martial issue as well.

    David De Gea 2017/18

    Some idiot in the MEN saying that the World Cup was a "reaction to the pressure of his Real Madrid dream dying".

    Summer - 2018 Transfer Targets

    I thought about that, but I'd really like to see Victor and Eric Bailly given a chance to forge a partnership, Maguire is probably at the stage where he needs to keep playing - we'd be using him as backup most likely. Plus after the World cup he's having, Leicester will be asking Van Dijk money - and I ain't talking about Dick.
