champions league tonight, everton match decent last night
And rebooked hotels, currently pencilled in for the Saturday evening game so I shouldn't need to change flights again hopefully.
Messi is gonna fucking miss it now though and seeing him in the flesh was about 60% of the motivation for it all :(
It's perfectly possible to recover from that type of injury in 8 weeks, and he is such a trooper- I am quite hopeful for you but can totally appreciate why you don't want to get your hopes up.
In all honesty my hopes are pretty rock bottom as it is, the whole thing has been a shambles. Fully, fully expecting to turn up and have bought a fake ticket and not get in.
Was never injured. Grew very fond of him.
argentina are already not ruling him out for the internationals preceding... which is and isn't a good sign. If he recovers in 6ish weeks but doesn't travel for the international break, that would be best
rather than doping. Like when they got Al Capone.
Got a gig to go to. Tell me it'll be a shit game DiS.
Literally no chance in hell that it won't be shit
That's just what I needed. (To quote The Cars.)
but it might actually be a newt!
there's nothing happening is there.
I think the conciseness of the rabbit one is pretty ideal for the format of a t-shirt though. No context required or anything like that.
Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone,
Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone.
Silence the pianos and with muffled drum
Bring out the coffin, let the mourners come.
Let aeroplanes circle moaning overhead
Scribbling on the sky the message He is Dead,
Put crépe bows round the white necks of the public doves,
Let the traffic policemen wear black cotton gloves.
He was my North, my South, my East and West,
My working week and my Sunday rest,
My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song,
I thought that love would last forever: I was wrong
The stars are not wanted now, put out every one;
Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun;
Pour away the ocean and sweep up the wood.
For nothing now can ever come to any good.
he's been saving himself by not wasting time with any goals or assists or form in the lower leagues. 20+
Would have been nice to see if we could stay in this league on our merits and not be hacked down by injuries to key players in the first few weeks.
just but £500 on Ritchie's leg to fall off next week at 7/2
take on the despicable, cheaty Olympiacos. Basically must-win (in terms of dodging the Europa, not actually winning the thing obvs) thanks to us bollocksing up in Zagreb and with back to back games against Bayern coming up.
We've also got United on Sunday, so fully expect a disastrous injury tonight, probably Coquelin being rushed back and breaking again.
take on the plucky, fan owned Wolfsburg. Basically must-win (in terms of dodging the Europa, not actually winning the thing obvs) thanks to us bollocksing up in Eindhovan and with back to back games against CSKA coming up.
We've also got Arsenal on Sunday, so fully expect a disastrous injury tonight, probably Jones being rushed back and breaking again.
How far we done fallen
(as did Carrick, Herrera and Rojo)
Varela trained with the first team though which means maybe, just maybe we won't see Jones at RB tomorrow night
Hopefully Valencia's assist for Welbz in the cup last year marked a permanent change in fortunes after previously taking over from Park's 'bit rubbish but always has a blinder against Arsenal' role
not sure there is another club that gets so many injuries in between games (arsenal get as many in general but they're mostly knocks in the game it feels like)
Nah, we can just diagnose injuries others can't thanks to the Toshiba Medical Centre (TM) at the AON Training Complex (TM)
and how they adversely affected you in your last league game.
a couple more injuries before we're sweating it
Jordan Henderson - £24m
Romelu Lukaku - £28m
Anthony Martial - £85m
i was sat in my local last night. me, Everton, and one old West Brom fan. we had a nice chat. he was quite excited after the Dawson goal. but, by Lukaku's winner, he was inconsolable, he could barely speak. i felt so bad to the point where i couldn't even celebrate. football is tough. cool story.
"waahhh it's got girls in it" :D
An own goal and a decidedly offside looking German Denis winner. Up to 8th! The Orobici look rejuvenated this season.
one gripe with BT is that the majority of games / red button isn't HD.
Might genuinely just watch that hectic goals thing from the football weekly lot. Perfectly suited for half-an-eye on the laptop type job, but there's nothing on tonight that enticing; arsenal olympiakos might be the least enticing fixture in the history of the european cup
I believe it to be the first time that the two sides have met and therefore a guaranteed humdinger.

none of that arty-farty shite

Arsenal aren't exactly a big bunch of lads but that is a team of lightweight tiddlers if ever there was one :/
That's all i've got, sorry, been feeling very disenfranchised with humanity since we lost to Spurs (at football).
Dunno why, i watch a fair bit o' the old Best League in the World and they're not even one of the standout sides.
We're never going to win it anyway so fuck it. Knockout games ars much more watchable without the partisan commentary, and IMAGINE how great it would be if the #championsleagueplaces went from four to three. There'd be some insane short-termist pant-shitting.
Keown should be kept away from Arsenal games.
if they missed out after finishing 4th this season
for Germany. What a waste.
Fucking hell, dreadful results.
Get it right round Chelsea though :)
that Ospina own goal didn't cross the line did it? How is it that the EPL has goal line technology but the Champions League doesn't? We've shown over here that it only has benefits and it is instantaneous.
and it'd have to be installed in places like Astana and BATE
Didn't have goal line technology
and we as an english people. must. TAKE. A STAND.
Best league doesn't equal best teams. It simply means the most competitive.
