Associated Press apparently.  He won't be visiting City's ground for a while or he'll end up spiking Guardiola with drugs and forcing him to torture Harris to within a millimetre of his life just so he can blackmail him.

I see Steve Clarke has been given the Scotland job. He's come across very bitter and angry in the last few months, not sure being Scotland boss will cheer him up!

By the time he screws that job up it’ll tie in nicely with the Ev looking for another manager.

 

He almost writes the Job Description for himself

No he has just reacted to a certain cunt of a club doing their best to cheat their way to 2nd. Its a brave move for him because his stock has risen after this season. He was on a decent wedge at Kilmarnock but he knows 3rd is as far as he is taking them. 

 

If he makes the Euro's with Scotland he will eventually end up at a lower table premier league side. He is a good man Steve Clarke, I like him. Didn't want particularly want him as Celtic manager when it was touted but wouldn't have been too gutted either. 

 

Villas-Boas is favourite to take the Celtic job now. 

 

Gerry Adams still 500/1

To be honest I'm seeing this as a massive relief, not only in terms of what he has achieved with Kilmarnock, but also because the Scottish F.A. haven't appointed Malky Makay which would have sent an amazing message out just prior to the womens teams getting to the world cup. I really wouldn't have put that past them.

Clarkes family are still based down south (from his Chelsea playing days) so I suppose the national team manager post is a bit of an easier sell with them as he won't have to be up in Ayrshire so often. Also I'd imagine Scotland will pay him more than the Killie job so that probably suits him, now he has to get a tune out of a squad of mainly peripheral premier league players with a smattering of Celtic and Championship first teamers.

 

The level of sectarian abuse he's been getting off Rangers fans is bizarre, I've never really looked into it but what is his actual link to Celtic? Or is it that he is a catholic?

I doubt he walks any time soon but he has tried to distance himself. He said something like “I believe in what my owner and my sporting director say, they tell me their is no problem and we are within the rules so I believe that”. When he said that I thought he was giving himself a bit of room to get off the hook with the “I’m only the coach” angle.

 

if it’s happening he knows. They either think they’re too clever for everyone or plan to bully their way out of it. The arrogance with which they’re handling themselves probably suggests both.

 

in some ways it’s a shame because they’re a good team on the field and his coaching and set up of them has been excellent. Helps when the dice are loaded granted 

Yeah, there’s surely no way he doesn’t know if that’s going on. Still, if the event they get rumbled and he leaves, brace yourself for the 'Pep as football savant man-child who has no concept of finance, living as he does in the realm of Pure Football' articles.

He grew up a Killie fan mate his brother played for them. Its because he is a Catholic and I think he turned them down not long ago.

Thanks for the info, that lot are just odd with their orange kits and BBC conspiracy theories. When I was growing up Sectarianism was reasonably rife and that was on the north east coast let alone Glasgow and the immediate vicinity, it does feel odd that it's locus is now almost entirely football related.

 

I'm in Islington and their London supporter club pub is on my road, load of Union jacks and Red Hands of ulster with the word 'Loyal' cropping up on the banners as much as possible, it's located in a really ethnically diverse community, it feels weird and I wonder what those without knowledge of the background make of it.

I was in Islington last week. Not far from Pentonville and I reckon Pentonville would be a much nicer experience than entering that pub.

Just lol at Chelsea. They hire Sarri with like 3 weeks left in preseason, the supporters cheer against him all season and now they'll sack him for Frank Lampard with a transfer ban looming even though he secured Champions League and a possible Europa League title. What a weird club.

Entertaining match, and Union deserved the result.

 

Return leg is Monday.

    • Great round up, I was either nodding in agreement or laughing at all of it!
    • Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is the latest Liverpool player to commit his future to the Reds by signing a long term deal.

      The decision to sign the midfielder from Arsenal in August 2017 raised some eyebrows at the time and he went through the usual acclimatising period when joining a new club.

      The start of 2018 saw the England international truly come into his own and his drive from midfield pushed the Reds to the next level especially when they came up against elite opposition such as Manchester City.

      Just when ‘Ox ’was becoming a indispensable part of the starting lineup, he was cruelly cut down by a very serious knee injury in the first leg of the semi final tie against Roma at Anfield.

      So began a year of blood, sweat, and tears in the rehabilitation room as the 26 year-old played the role that no footballer wants to be be - a spectator.

      The team evolved further in his absence, perhaps not as dynamic, but certainly more pragmatic as they found ways to win and displayed the resilience that Oxlade-Chamberlain was showing in his rehab.

      The popular member of the squad took his first steps back to first team football at the tail end of last season, but it has been in the early part of this campaign where he has become a starting member once again.   There was little doubt last season that the Reds missed his dynamism and drive from midfield, and speaking after signing the contract, Oxlade-Chamberlain was clearly looking forward to moving on the next phase of his career.  

      The Official site reported Oxlade-Chamberlain as saying:

      “I’m really, really excited - it’s been in the pipeline for a little while, so it’s nice to finally get it done and just extend my time here, which I am really looking forward to.

      “I feel like I missed out on a year, which I obviously did, so it’s really exciting for me to be able to sign. 

      “It’s something that I feel is an opportunity to give that year back and make up for lost time – and hopefully put in some good performances to make amends for not being around last year”

      “You’ve got to count your blessings every time you get an opportunity like this, you don’t get the chance to play for Liverpool Football Club every day. 

      “I am really excited to be able to extend my time here.”

      You get a sense that the hard times that the midfielder has experienced has made him want to make the best of every opportunity, as well as respecting those who put their hard earned money into the club. 

      “I can promise the supporters that I'll give them absolutely everything moving forward.

      “As a footballer, I think the least you can do is respect the fans, the club and who you play for and give them everything you can. 

      “When you get the support back that you do, you can't really have any complaints. 

      It's [Liverpool] a hard place not to embrace. It's such a full-on culture, so much passion from everyone that is associated with the club – it's really endearing.

      “There might be times where I have bad games and good games and moments where it's not so good, but I'll always work through those moments and give my everything to correct them and keep pushing this team for.

      Meanwhile, the manager was just as delighted to see Oxlade-Chamberlain commit to the club.

      “When I heard Ox had signed his new contract with us, I am sure my emotions were the same as every Liverpool fan hearing the news tonight – absolutely delighted.

      “We all know Alex’s story since he came to the club, and yes there have been disappointments as well as highs, but what has impressed me and everyone is his attitude to dealing with setbacks and his character.

      “That’s why none of us were ever in any doubt about him fighting his way back in the way he did. 

      “To see him play almost the whole game at Southampton on Saturday was such a positive moment for all of us, especially him.

      And Jurgen has a request for the fans in relation to Alex.

      “Maybe this is the season we hear the Kop sing an Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain song.   " I can tell you it would mean a lot to me and the boys to hear that, let alone him!”
