It's Ozilmost time!
Ozil, Eriksen, Willian etc etc
I'm usually lurking y'know.
"In a few years many clubs will follow and change their names to something more interesting and I will have proved I am a leader – remember this discussion. City, Town, County: these are meaningless. In marketing the shorter the name the more powerful - think of Coca Cola, Twitter, Apple. By next year I will change the name to Hull Tigers. If I were the owner of Manchester City I would change the name to Manchester Hunter – you need power. In time I would suggest names for all the clubs called City, but I do not have the time."
Totally agree Assem. Is there any way we contribute money towards making this Manchester Hunter thing actually happen?
What kills hunters? AND DON'T SAY TIGERS.
The Madrid Slave Traders
it's ozil pieces in the press.
He's gonna start and play 90 minutes. Wilshere will come off at half time and be replaced by gnabry
It would've been Arsenal before they bought Ozil, but happily now looks like being either Sunderland (signing loads of numpties, managed by a Nazi) or Newcastle (Joe Kinnear).
because they're basically still a premier league top half nobhead club and their fans are kind of asking for it.
have they done anything stupid lately though? they're top of the league
but neither has anyone else (I guess the whole £40m+1 thing was stupid, but it felt like it was meant to be funny). At least compared to Liverpool's recent form.
I like that they're top of the league after 3 games though, going to make them finishing 6th that much funnier.
and that's speaking as a fan hoping for the best.
Also, nothing recently because Suarez has been unavailable. Give it time.
Joe Kinnear didn't bother going to any international matches to scout players this week.
I reckon Moses will smash a hatrick (or Shelvey win score the winner)
FC Luzern owner Bernhard Alpstaeg has proposed that strippers should be employed before kick-off to draw the crowds in. The Swiss FA however, isn't too keen on the idea. Something about rules and regulations.
(and don't forget to vote)
Okay, I'm biased. But this really is quite brilliant.
Verbal would have seen the Freedman one which I think he enjoyed, these just get better.
yeah fuck that, much more looking forward to Spurs tomorrow/Thundercat on my bday
first game in ages, looking forward to it.
it was a lot fun (even though it was a fairly dull 0-0) but i'm really looking forward to WHL tomorrow. Also, that game is on TV.
Only game in PL history to go an entire half without a foul.
so much banter
Fucked up when they went on sale to ST holders on Monday, managed to convince a few members to let me use their details so will hopefully snag a pair this coming Monday
particularly when we're more expensive to say, Man City or Newcastle.
With Kompany, Richards, Clichy and Demichelis out, conceding is likely. Garcia or Lescott alongside Nastasic seems to be only choice that needs to be made.
Think it's time for Negredo to come in for Dzeko as well. He's got a bastardly edge about him that means he'll be able to give as good as he gets from Huth and Shawcross.
Jovetic should hopefully start. Which might be a blessing. Or it will put an end to the argument that City need two proper wide men to break down organised teams.
(plus he'll probably just instruct his players to boot the ball out to you on a throw-in again and let you score.)
will be Lescott and Nastastic, shirely? perhaps Negredo and Jovetic as a front two to give a bit of bite?
A front four of Jovetic, Aguero, Navas; Negredo would good, if Aguero isn't too knackered from playing in Paraguay midweek.
As Stoke don't really have any pace going forward, Nastasic and Lescott might not be a disaster again. We'll have to see.
good to see zidane getting some air-time too.
but ronaldo looks fucking pissed off there
more like gaol machine amirite?
