    Let's All Laugh At... Lets all laugh at Man City

    Probably just as good news for City too, the way Stones has been playing recently!

    Let's All Laugh At... Let's all laugh at Liverpool thread

    Well, here's a development no-one could have seen coming. Apparently Mo Salah's not enthusiastic about the introduction of VAR... :sneaky:

    Match Threads Man City vs Spurs - Match Thread

    The timing of that substitution will largely depend on how long it takes the ref to show Lamela a yellow... :)

    What the pundits & media are saying about us

    As in all branches of journalism, the football pundits earn their money by emphasising the problems without proposing any solutions. With high-end PL transfer fees now approaching £100 million, it's inevitable that the players and their agents are going to want to see more of this...

    Match Threads Man City vs Spurs - Match Thread

    Me too. For some reason, that was also the last time my Man City season-ticket holding mate invited me to join him at the match! :unsure:

    What the pundits & media are saying about us

    You're not missing much. A Times journo's probably been for liquid lunch with some prominent football agents and they've taken the opportunity to try to ramp up the pressure on all the PL clubs to increase players' wages to avoid them running down their contracts. There's nothing particularly...

    Let's All Laugh At... Let's all laugh at Liverpool thread

    The sports reporter on BBC Breakfast accepted that most people had never heard of it, but claimed that this was because British teams had rarely been involved. "Most years it had been fought out between 2 Spanish teams."

    Vertonghen and why his repeated 'clashes' with Pochettino at Spurs are no bad thing

    Remove some of the Daily Remove some of the Daily Mail's more excitable slant, and we're left with a quite credible scenario. Clearly, a 32 year old player who's not fully match-fit is at increased risk of sustaining muscle strains. If Poch was concerned at Jan's underlying levels of fitness...

    Tottenham face big call over Christian Eriksen

    Yo You haven't missed much. The narrative is simnply that Spurs were destined to lose the match until that magical moment when CE appeared, and that Spurs would be mad to sell him before they've and secured an adequate replacement. (The writer, Gary Jacob, admitted in the comments that the...

    Let's All Laugh At... Let's All Laugh At West Ham

    ...and Pellegrini's been very quick and vocal in drawing attention to Man City's tactical fouling to prevent opponents attacking them on the break. We can only hope that referees start to notice this and start brandishing yellow cards for what is obviously deliberate foul play. (I'm not holding...

    Let's All Laugh At... Let's all laugh at Liverpool thread

    ... and they must have been gutted that there was no opposition player with 10 metres when it happened. One of the joys of being a Liverpool fan is putting together an angry petition to get an opononent banned for life.:)

    What the pundits & media are saying about us

    He doesn't seem to realise or care how ridiculous he sounds, spouting off about how HK will have to leave Spurs to achieve something from his career. The points he makes lose all credibility when it's revealed that this "legend" is now having to prostitute himself as a "media ambasador" for a...

    Paulo Dybala

    In football, Image rights are effectively a tax avoidance vehicle, and are used to allow a proportion of a player's earnings to be taxed at a lower rate. However, after years of abuse within the PL, HMRC has clamped down on their use un the UK and now restricts the value of a players's Image...

    Player Watch: Giovani Lo Celso

    It's just the Sun reporting something that they've picked up from the Daily Record, but there certainly does seem to be a lot of momentum building up in support of this story. Here's hoping...
