Cause it can get much worse,  Clinton Morrison! It’s should not be in no way at all, getting a job just to balance out the different races, it should be on merit, 

I agree with what you’re saying on merit. I don’t really wanna get into the ins and outs of race as I generally get slated so will avoid it.

looks like arsenal are selling bellerin found by the scout they have just sacked after years.

 

that means soares will start for them, adding to luiz gabriel, willian and co that's quite the portuguese speaking quartet arsenal are building there this year. I am sure a certain agent there is delighted at events.

Some people go on about "merit" as if it is a non-subjective concept! 

Pretty sure they did not just grab some dude off the streets supposedly to "balance out the different races".

Think Everton really always will remain where they currently are as a club with their recruitment policies. James Rodriguez literally still lives off the 2014 world Cup - he's a decent player but another ego to add to Everton's squad of past it, overhyped and hard to manage players. Even big Dunc would struggle with these lot.

bet you soares will start instead

 

maitland niles has never enjoyed playing there and the club were almost willing to sell him last week before a turnaround in opinion.

Maybe ... I mean I love watching four well off (maybe not merse) middle aged white men talk nonsense as much as the rest. But why shouldn’t women or BAME pundits be afforded the opportunity to have a go? I mean it can’t get much worse then what it actually is at the minute. There is a need to provide opportunities across society and football should be showing the way. Not having a dig at you btw mate 

I agree with what you're saying but why are we using "middle aged white men" as this slur so often now, just because of a far wider problem in the world. And i dont think anyone you ever watch on that show will be anything other than "well off".

 

Providing opportunities is exactly what i have seen sky doing more and more over the last year. Some have been good, some have been poor. Doing things like getting rid of 3 blokes just because they're old and white is counter productive and hypocritical. 

 

Phasing them out would have been a much more respectful way of doing things, and would have avoided the backlash from those on the right who will always use these scenarios to play us off against each other.

I just hope they hold firm. if this five sub things stay say goodbye to any semblance of competition. 

Agree. I dont understand why they did it in the first place.  

Further... I dont line the competitions where theres an extra dib for extra time.   The idea is that the game gets stretched and mistakes are made.  

I used to like watching cup finals in et with player getting cramp

I think it made sense when the season restarted as teams were playing every 3 or 4 days for a 1 to 2 month period. However, now that the season is back to normal length (albeit a slight shortening), I don't see why 5 subs are needed. The likes of Burnley are playing one game a week with the odd midweek games scheduled.

Where on earth do Everton get their wedge from? They haven't sold anyone of note since Lukaku about 4 years ago and yet they blow so much bunce it's incredible. Turnover is likely to be higher than ours but not by much, maybe £50m or so?

Moshiri spends and Usmanov who used to be part owner of Arsenal is getting increasingly involved too. I’d imagine they must have been close to FFP trouble before it was relaxed

Will they be still having the drinks/tactical break during matches? 

Hopefully not but wouldn't surprise me, not really the same need for a drinks break at Burnley in November.

I hope not. Again, like the extra subs,  it was an understandable measure after the restart, expecting matches in higher summer temperatures and players needing extra hydration when getting back to fitness.

 

Absolutely no need in October.
