    Neymar is a spoilt idiot
  3. 30. David Luiz

    To me it looked like he was giving 100% and its one of those challenges where it looked like he was going for the ball, but no chance so studs were up. Reckless, but thought he was MOTM up until the red
  4. Chelsea - Arsenal

    The result rests firmly with Conte. The game needed changing from 25 mins in. Solid at the back. Morata isolated. It was screaming out for Hazard.
  5. The European Leagues & Competitions Thread V2

    The media love to attack the fans, the fact is it was an organisational fuck up. The stupid gooner twats that sold their tickets should have their memberships and STs revoked
  6. The European Leagues & Competitions Thread V2

    ARSENAL have attempted to sneak through their Europa League clash with FC Koln without anyone noticing them. The Gunners hoped to avoid being recognised by any other clubs as they suffered the humiliating fate of playing in the Aldi-standard European competition for the first time in 17 years. Striker Alexis Sanchez said: “If anyone found out, urgh. The shame. I’d never hear the end of it. “I told friends I was spending all night at lap-dancing clubs, just to stop me being embarrassed, and whenever the TV cameras were on me I pretended I was just a man out walking his dog who’d stumbled into this game of football.” A statement on Arsenal’s website insisted that the Emirates Stadium was closed for termite spraying on Thursday evening, but the presence of thousands of German fans gave the game away. Arsenal fan Stephen Malley said: “I sneaked into the stadium and it was like catching my parents going at it. “It was horrific to watch the team I love debasing themselves in that way. I know times have been tough but surely they didn’t have to resort to this grubby encounter on a wet Thursday evening.”

    Luckily it didn't explode properly, otherwise there would have been fatalities. Funny how Trump immediately said that the perpetrator(s) were known to British security. How amazing that he has psychic powers
  8. Oh well ...seem to be doing OK despite him atm
  9. The European Leagues & Competitions Thread V2

    20 000 Koln fans in London. Theyre now having punch ups with Arsenal stewards inside Emirates, and thousands of ticketless fans rucking with the cops outside.

    It's like Martin Samuel says when is a yid not a yid ?
  11. The English Football Thread

    Its ridiculous. Martin Samuel is spot on again, I don't know why he writes for the Nazi supporting Daily Mail Yid Army http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-4873734/Time-Tottenham-army-march-different-tune.html

    Borussia very unlucky tonight. Onside goal ruled off by ref, couple cleared off the line -and Vertongen what a dirty cunt. Yids flattered by that scoreline
  13. The FIFA Thread

    Out in a week or two, looking the ballacks http://hmv.com/hmvweb/displayProductDetail...&sku=722166
  14. Yeah, and we mustn't forget how mischievous the media is in stirring and exaggerating. Bottom line is whether the board will match what he wants, because theres fuck all loyalty to a club these days
  15. The Mourinho Thread

    On R 5 last night - ''I want to return to Chelsea one day, thats for sure'' Here are the highlights of that interview: SPOONY: I'm used to calling the top man at a football club 'the manager', but you're head coach at Real Madrid. Do you like being a manager or do you prefer to be called coach? MOURINHO: In my relationship with my players I had everything. I had the traditional Portuguese 'Mr', I had 'the guv', I had 'the boss', 'coach' and 'Jose'. SPOONY: Which is your favourite? MOURINHO: You know, 'the guv' was the one I took. I think it was Damien Duff, the first one to call me that, and I took a few weeks to understand the dimension. What matters for me is that it remains forever. Even today Frank Lampard and John Terry call me 'boss' and I'm not the boss anymore. SPOONY: When we see you on the touchline or in a press conference, it would very much appear that those things don't matter to you. But sitting here speaking to you now, you hold these things very dear and close to you. MOURINHO: These are the things that matter for me. I read a book from one of the most important coaches in the history of university sports, John Wooden, a basketball coach at UCLA (University of California, Los Angeles), and one of the things he says is that the most important thing in all of this is 'the man'. The human relation. The best coach is the one who puts in everything. SPOONY: Is winning everything? MOURINHO: No, winning is not everything. But winning is more important than any one of us. Sometimes you have the feeling during the match that a player cannot improve, and you can read the situation - he didn't start well, but he has the conditions to finish well - but sometimes you feel immediately the team started bad, the players are bad, and you have to make some changes. If the result goes completely against you, you have to take some decisions and some risks and everyone's afraid of that. SPOONY: You hold Sir Alex Ferguson in very high regard? Sir Alex on Mourinho in 2009 "I got on very well with him at Chelsea and I think it was a loss to the game when he went. I actually enjoyed watching him on the television. I thought he was good. He was cocky and confident but it was good for the game. Right away he came in and said, 'I'm the Special One', and we all thought, 'Who is this?' and his team thought, 'We'd better win here'. He came to Chelsea and made that declaration himself. Don't forget he was self-anointed. People then sat up but his achievements are there to be recognised." MOURINHO: Of course. My first contact with him was not one to forget because Porto beat Manchester United in the Champions League. After the match he was knocking on our dressing room door with Gary Neville, and they wanted to congratulate our dressing room. So that was a moment when I understood that when the win is deserved, you have to respect the winners and you have to know to enjoy a little bit the happiness of the others. It happened with Bayern Munich last season when we (Real Madrid) lost the semi-final on penalties, and at the end of the match it was not a drama for me. I was also in their dressing room. I remember that day of Porto-Man United, and it was the start of my relationship with the greatest manager of British football. SPOONY: Would you go back to Chelsea? MOURINHO: I will go where people really want me. But I have to repeat always this: I'm with Real Madrid, I very much want to be, I have a new contract, I'm not thinking about leaving. The day I leave is when I want to go. But yes, I want to go back one day, that's for sure. SPOONY: People always say Barcelona are the greatest club side that we've ever seen in this generation, yet Real Madrid won La Liga. You must be proud? MOURINHO: We won, and we won with nine points difference. They didn't win, and they didn't win because they had a bad season, because sometimes big teams have a bad season where they lose points. They had 91 points, and with 91 points you are the champion of every Liga. The point is, Real Madrid had 100 points. We beat every record in the league in Spain and so we won because we were tremendous, because we've had an incredible season. SPOONY: What drives you? What keeps you so motivated? MOURINHO: The club above everything. When I go to a club, I wear the shirt, I feel the shirt like my first one or my last one, I feel the fans as part of myself, I create internal links with fans. I become immediately one of them, and I feel that I am one of them with a privileged position to fight for the club and to try to bring to all of them happiness. SPOONY: Is this what happens when there's a potential problem between yourself and an owner, in that they don't always see it from the fans' point of view? MOURINHO: You go through my career since day one until now and I've never had problems with clubs and owners. At Chelsea, I didn't want to stay and let things go into a direction where we were all feeling it was not the best direction. We felt that was the best decision, because in this moment we are friends. There are no problems between me and Roman (Abramovich, Chelsea owner). Mourinho's trophy haul Porto (2002-04): Primera Liga (2003, 2004), Champions League (2004), Uefa Cup (2003), Portuguese Cup (2003), Portuguese Super Cup (2003). Chelsea (2004-07): Premier League (2005, 2006), FA Cup (2007), League Cup (2005, 2007), Community Shield (2005). Inter (2008-10): Serie A (2009, 2010), Champions League (2010), Coppa Italia (2010), Italian Super Cup (2008). Real Madrid (2010 to date): La Liga (2012), Copa del Rey (2011). When people know me they understand that if sometimes I'm not an easy person to work with it's because I fight for my people, for the best conditions for the players and I fight for the club and I fight for the fans, and I become a fan. SPOONY: Sir Bobby Robson is a national treasure in the UK and you were his right-hand man. How much did you learn from him? MOURINHO: I was lucky. I was lucky because he took me in when I was really young. I spent something like five years with Sir Bobby, and of course he was very important for me. But again, if you ask me to say the most important things with Sir Bobby and why did I learn a lot, I keep the person. I forget everything about football and I keep the person. SPOONY: You've signed a new contract until 2016 at Real Madrid, but the accusation in the past is that you're just about winning trophies, and not bothered about young players coming through. So what is your master plan for Real Madrid? MOURINHO: You know, first of all the challenge was to come here and to win, and to stop that domination of Barcelona in the Spanish league. We did it, and I could say 'job done', but we want not to win in an isolated way - we want to keep winning. Real Madrid was the biggest club of the last century because of results, and we want Real Madrid to go in the same direction in the 21st century. SPOONY: And just before I let you go, do you see yourself one day managing an international side? Would you manage an international side that wasn't Portugal? MOURINHO: In this moment I don't see it because it's a completely different kind of job. In the club we play 60 matches a season, in an international team we play maybe 10, so it's a job I don't want to have in this moment. But it's a job that makes people full of pride, especially if you do it with your own country, and I will do it with Portugal because I think Portuguese people wouldn't understand if I do it with another country. I don't imagine myself in the World Cup playing against Portugal. SPOONY: Managing England against Portugal in the semi-finals MOURINHO: It would be dramatic
  16. Its not like our whole away end were inciting racial hatred. Why are Spurs not facing bans every week? Nothing sung on Saturday was meant as an insult, we were just using the word Spurs refer to themselves as as it rhymed.
  17. The General Football Thread

    1) Man City have the most expensive squad in history -£775m 2)_ PSG - £772m 3) Redshite Utd -£712m Not surprising the top 2 are owned by countries. 4) Chelsea £584m
  18. Ross Barkley

    Same old, same old wasn't it. Sail through the qualifying then watch us bomb out in Russia. Ox Cham all huff and bluster with the finesse of a dyspraxic John Merrick
  19. Ross Barkley

    I thought we dodged a bullet missing out on Stones. After watching England v Slovakia I think we dodged a whole fucking fusillade missing out Barkley and Ox Chamberlain
  20. The Mourinho Thread

    He played for the Grenfell fire victims
  21. 6. Danny Drinkwater

    Passing and tackling is very good. CL experience and won the PL -ex Utd Manc so play him against Mourinhos Mercenaries
  22. ''Ross, just touch your toes....'' ''I can't''
  23. Deadline Day!

    Alright mate don't shoot the messenger about the Drinkwater situation btw that same source says theres friction between Marina whatsherfuckingname and Conte simmering The reality is there is something odd if six players don't want to play for the Champions.
  24. Deadline Day!
