Yeah a relatively comfortable away win in Europe with a clean sheet. Fred, Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Sancho all suddenly remembered how to play football. Weird.


Ah, so you only saw the last half an hour. Got it!

I couldn't care less honestly, not my club, enjoy it when they get humiliated, but the sight of them all crying their crocodile tears and getting their apologies out on social media whilst transparently putting in dogshit performances to get their manager sacked was pathetic.

:lol: calm down mate 

 

You’re going to shit bricks when you find out most of the players don’t actually post on Twitter themselves.

Sancho is a crime. People are feeling sorry for Ole, and he's held back one of England's brightest young stars.

 

Whacking Ronaldo in ahead of him shows invertebrate qualities rarely seen in a manager of a big club.

Frankie Burrows has died 😞

 

First stint as manager of Cardiff was just before my time, but his second stint with a promotion in 98/99 was when I was first living away from parents and me and my house mates travelled home and away that season and the one after starting long standing friendships and a lot of hangovers as well as working with some of the girlfriends of some of the City players around my age. One of the favourite periods of my life.

 

That 98/99 promotion season saw Robert Earnshaw start playing regularly, signing Andy Legg and giving game time to another local lad in Scott Young - all of whom would become core players in our eventual rise up the leagues to the Championship (and beating Leeds in the FA Cup).

 

In between his stints managing Cardiff, he also won the Autoglass Trophy with the Jacks so one of a rare breed of managers who had success with two hated rivals.

He was my first Swans manager.  We always played good football under him in the lower leagues.  I couldn't go to the Autoglass final as I was on a family holiday.  R.I.P Frankie Burrows.

We did a minutes applause last night in a half (and the rest) empty ground and then played like we did when we got relegated back to Division 3 (except that team looked like they wanted to stay up). Thanks for beating Barnsley!

That Man City Vs PSG game was good last night. I've not watched much TV football this year but enjoyed the ref letting things go. Weirdly, there were hardly any throw ins. 

Man City looked a different team with an actual striker up front. Pep doesn't seem desperate to sign one though.

I miss The Tuesday Club and do actually get quite annoyed they've not come back. They seemed to tire of it because it was the same old things but that was with Wenger. They've not done anything during Arteta's reign. 

 

Mirroring the manager, perhaps?

Has Gary Neville taken his eye off the ball?

 

'Enough', said Gary Neville this week as he (once again) attacked Boris Johnson. The ex-footballer is no stranger to attacking the Tories: in the past few months, the former England right-back has dubbed Johnson a 'liar', bizarrely suggested that the PM is a 'spaghetti bolognese of a man' and accused the Government of 'incompetency'. 

 

Neville is clearly a busy man: as well as his day job talking about football, he is listed as a director for 56 firms

Even football fans aren't safe from Neville's bit-part political punditry. During England’s Euro 2020 semi-final win this summer, when the whole country was (briefly) united for once, he interjected to suggest that Gareth Southgate, the England manager, had shown more leadership than the Prime Minister. But while Neville's career as a Tory attack dog appears to be taking off, is he in danger of taking his eye off the ball elsewhere?

 

Mr S only asks because one of the many, many companies which list Neville as a director has failed to file its accounts on time. As a result, the curiously-named 'The man behind the curtain (Leeds) limited' could soon be struck off as it passed its deadline at the end of September to file its accounts for the previous year. The firm lists Neville as one of two directors alongside chef Michael O'Hare, who runs Leeds' only Michelin-starred restaurant under the same name.

 

Neville is clearly a busy man: as well as his day job talking about football, he is listed as a director for 56 firms. Some are involved in hotels, developing building projects, education and management consultancy. Not all these firms remain active, but even so, having dozens of business interests is surely enough to keep Neville's hands full.

 

Perhaps it is time for Neville to take a break from burnishing his comradely credentials to get his own house in order?

 

hahahaha. I'm trying to comprehend anyone being apparently annoyed at an ex footballer (or really anyone) ripping into Boris. Just try making sense of that first paragraph, '(once again)', 'liar', ''bizarrely', 'incompetency'. The indignation. 

 

also...get a photo that makes Gary Neville look as much of a lunatic as possible will you.
