Re: OGS.....

We have the second best record in the league over the past ten games, behind Liverpool. We've got 21 points out of 30, 6-3-1, so it's been a good but not a great run. Surprisingly, Arsenal is next with 20 points. Then there are a bunch with 18 points or so. We also have the best goal difference, +14...

Re: Not just a shit beer: Corona and football

Hi all. I haven’t paid much attention to the football yet since it started. Finding it hard to get that engaged with it, for various reasons. I hope we manage to sneak over the line into the CL though. The way things are going, I think next season will be fucked by covid as well. So far every place ...

Re: Angel Gomes - The next Iniesta

I can’t say he ever looked ready when I saw him, so I’m not that bothered right now, but maybe he just needs more time and opportunities.

Re: Unrealistic summer transfer wankfest III

Chelsea have signed Werner. He should be ace for them, he's a real goal machine in Germany.

Sounds like Pogba is staying with us. Looks like we're not buying a striker. Basically Sancho or bust for us then is it?

Re: Coronavirus

He doesn't seem bothered by the fuss or inclined to resign. It's like the Trump White House, the old rules of politics don't apply. There's no concept of resigning as a point of principle. You can do or say what you want, apparently. The fact that they made the scientist Ferguson resign makes the hy...

Re: Not just a shit beer: Corona and football

Re: Not just a shit beer: Corona and football

Healthcare workers, supermarket workers, bus drivers all have to go to work. Young millionaire professional athletes too scared to play football don’t. They have a fair point, but just goes to show how fucked it is that the people whose jobs actually matter get paid buttons while some lads good at k...
