Any African Cup action or anything?
(great 'playing dead' response though)
I want to be allowed to still like him.
so I am declaring it a Dead Duck
but also: fucking hell the atmosphere at African matches
Selfie sticks have been banned and the Barbour brigade have long since given up on waiting for us to get good and been replaced by Japanese tourists in SuperDry
Sounds like fighting words.

This could be Mourinho's Eileen Dury moment
I wonder how little Liverpool are going to pay for one of the most exciting players since Redmond or Mutch started banging them in for the u15s. I think I suggested about £1m in this thread a few months back probably end up less.
Rumoured to be on 80 grand a week.
I suppose he could save up for a really good lawyer for when he inevitably sues his dad.
I mean, after he's bought every single games console going - and a car and a house.
Send his Dad on a cruise?
set up a foundation
how on earth can they play on that pitch
South Korea need extra time to beat Uzbekistan in quarter finals.
Australia 2-0 up against China with 15 minutes to go.
The big Iraq-Iran local derby tomorrow morning.
Arsenal bagging Newcastle’s Sissoko in a bargain deal, while Chelsea glovesman Petr Cech joins Chelsea...'
just for bants, like
but everyone's too lazy to make it happen.
Worth watching if you want to see Gary Lineker wearing an astonishing jacket, and Cantona doing his Seagull speech soundtracked by post-rock:
I've still never seen anything like it. Not even Zidane's headbutt or Suarez bites come close in terms of players disgracing the game, I don't think.
he was *not* persuaded that this was *not* a case where a *non*-custodial sentence could *not* be justified
Trying to work that part out.
- Zidane's headbutt was enjoyed by all
Even Suarez biting people had some entertainment value too.
Although my favourite thing about the whole business was that interview a couple of years ago when he was asked what his career high point was and he said "When I kicked the hooligan." :D
*"I have a lot of good moments but the one I prefer is when I kicked the hooligan."
as Stevie G's violent love for Phil Collins.
(i.e. the wig that fell off)
but there's still something a little funny bizarre about the idea of Suarez deciding that he's going to have a little gnaw on a shoulder.
The bloke was clearly a colossal dickhead (got arrested a few years ago for assaulting someone at a kids' match) and fully deserved it.
Suarez/Zidane incidents really weren't that bad either, but there's way more hysteria around football these days (and one was during the World Cup Final tbf)
Possibly his highlight of a tournament where he more-or-less dragged France to the final by being increasingly brilliant with each match.
Imagine if the Zidane film had been based on that world cup final: it would have won oscars...
dunno what that means.
knows what they're doing.
a football fan, from Manchester, buy their club's kit through SportsDirect? I could understand it if you were, say, a United fan living in the Midlands or something, but if your own club had a huge megastore, and your club sold through JD, the Nike shops, etc...just don't know how it'd come about.
the bit where Mendes says anything could change at, like, any time, that seems more significant than him saying Dave will probably sign, yeah.
wish it was a wig that could fall off.
He said: "I know all the stats. I read the stats. I know that we have won more with 4-4-2 in a diamond.
"But when you analyse the game then we have twitched our ass on the bench.
"I said to my players I was squeezing my ass but it was the wrong expression, I have twitched my ass on the bench because we were out of balance.
"We lost the game against Leicester City 5-3. That was undeserved. The referee gave a penalty for nothing. At that time the result was 3-2, no problem. Then you are a great club. But we lost 5-3.
"All the matches when we play 4-4-2, like against West Ham United it was always twitching your ass. I don't like that.
"We have won nine or 10 in a row then we lose one match and then the discussion about the system is coming. It is ridiculous.
"Now I have answered your question in a very good way."
