It sounds like their squad is filled with unprofessional pricks who don't really care how they do as long as they enjoy themselves and get paid. They've turned into us from the 90s. I doubt any footballers carry coins around with them these days but they probably have some equally ridiculous game they play amongst themselves during matches rather than concentrating on the actual football.

Pass the emoji.

Bet Ronaldo doesn't get a mention.

Good I hope it stays like that for another year. the longer their fans & former players don't find any issue with him playing the better.

Rashford clearly tries 100 %, his confidence is fucked at the moment. Cavani has been good for them too, but played by Ralf in a stupid position on Sunday. Giraffe lip clearly on the beak again.

Senegal reporting 9 covid positive cases in their camp ahead of ACON. Sadio not currently reported as being a positive.

Super spreader Mane trying to come home early.  Good lad.

Trippier become newcastle's first signing under the Saudi regime.

12m?

 

They paid 20m for him and he was under contract for another couple years. Seems a strange deal for a club that is still in the CL with a real fight in the league to qualify for next season.

Sure I read they were wanting 25-30m only a couple of weeks back. Seems very strange, especially knowing the money Newcastle now have.

Trippier is 31 , so I can't see 25/30m being realistic for a full back.

I think there's built in performance bonuses such as avoiding relegation, finishing mid table next season etc built in!

A change of manager can certainly help when you get the right one in.

 

The distance covered bit is the most telling obviously.

I’m loathe to put too much stock in a new manager’s first couple of months, but if they keep that up until the end of the season and invest in the summer, they’ll be real challengers for second place next year.

I like Conte and think he's a decent bloke. But he stayed, what, 2 seasons at chelsea then threw his toys out the pram when Abramovich wouldnt buy him the players he wanted?

 

There's a big question mark whether Levy will open the purse as much as Conte would want or, cash in on Kane if city come back and doesnt put all of that money to player purchases.
