    MOTD

    I genuinely think it's getting embarrassing how insanely bias towards Spurs Jenas is.
  2. The BBC seem to be obsessing over the fact they had a goal incorrectly ruled out. Did they not have one incorrectly given like two minutes before? The love in for London teams is just bonkers sometimes.
  3. What's very possible to be fair is that Ajax will make enough money off De Jong, De Ligt and Ziyech (probably the three most likely to stay) that they can say no to any more sales this summer. They're clearly not going to want to lose an entire team are they? As good as Neres, VdBeek, Tagliafico etc have been, if they drop off a little in form next year they'll drop off the radar. Buying up Ajax team now would be a bit like buying up players who have a good world cup, it's just flavour of the month excitement. It'll fade if they don't move this summer and they go out in the group stage again next year.
  4. Monaco > Ajax don't be daft. Monaco has wealthy owners, is a tax haven, plays in a stronger league. Ajax don't have the resources to hold on to their players and all the stars of this team will leave. Just not to us.
  5. "This Sheffield United team are most dangerous when their backs are against the wall" What? At home against Forest with ten men?
  6. Definitely to be honest. Ref definitely not a Leeds fan
  7. I thought it was a pretty stonewall pen tbh, not sure why Hinchcliffe is so passionate that's a dive. I hate, hate, hate seeing fouls given when there's like the tiniest bit of physical contact and the player uses it as an excuse to jump on the floor. A dive is a dive regardless of whether there's technically contact. But I thought he was legitimately tripped. Can't believe its not only given but he's been booked. Might need to watch it again slowed down and I might change my mind but eh.
  8. A day late, a dollar short.
  9. Like most of those are literally two, three, four sizes too big for those kids and the sponsors always look stupid on junior kits because they don't scale the size properly. They'll look perfectly fine on a proper adult when they're actually released. I get people not liking the pink one but the blue and grey ones are just going to look like a whole bunch of other blue and grey kits we've had over the last couple years. They'll be pretty average and inoffensive. People going way overboard tbh.
  10. Everyone stressing about the fits, they're on kids and a couple random models. They're blatantly going to fit like every other kit Adidas make.
  11. I'm a big Pep fan, I think he's frankly a genius in footballing terms. As a manager he's much like he was as a player, he reads space just sensationally well. But one thing that's really struck me over his time at City is him constantly criticising the club and the squad when it comes to Europe. I think in his own mind he's perhaps trying to lower expectations because he wants to take pressure off them. But all he's really doing is hyping up the difference between Europe and the Prem, telling them they're basically not good enough. I'd shrug and say he knows best (he almost certainly knows a lot more than we do!) except for the fact they consistently fail to deliver in Europe. They almost seem to panic against teams they should be beating. The champions league is insanely over hyped, its much easier than the Premier League is at the moment. This year, to win the league, City have to play Liverpool, Chelsea, United, Tottenham and Arsenal all twice each, all of whom would expect to get to the knock out stages of Europe. Even your Burnleys and Brighton are infinitely better than the muck you get in the group stage. It always confused me people honestly thought Leicester would struggle to get out of a group containing Brugge and FCK. They're like ****ing Championship teams at absolute best. The FA Cup is harder than the earlier stages of Europe. You'd absolutely never get Mourinho doing this in the early stages of his career, he'd never have gone to Porto and Inter and told his players they were never going to win it because they're not mature enough as a club. He'd have gone there, told his team they were invincible, built up a solid, winning, killer mentality. Pep's telling his boys they're all weak. I think it's genuinely significant that as good as he is at domestic management, he's only won the thing as the overwhelming favourite.
  12. Ugh. Please god don't let Tottenham get to a CL final.
  13. You can see from the movement of his arm after impact it clearly hits it.
  14. 13th time they've scored 4+ in a game this season
