    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    For many of them the sentiment has been there all along, even if the language was tempered somewhat.

    Overturned. No red or pen. Allegedly stonewallers, in which case you’d need to check one or two VAR-related bank accounts.

    Hopefully we can stay in top four contention until January and Klopp really pressurises FSG. We’re unlikely to see a positive end to the season if we don’t spend big on a top class midfielder at the beginning of the next window.

    Fucking hilarious to hear it being touted as a massive achievement prior to the goal.

It looks like they reduced his ankle [put it back in place] there and then, which is what you need to do because the longer the ankle remains dislocated the more problems there will be for the soft tissue and that then queers your pitch for when you need to fix them.” Just what we needed with the on-going controversy over offensive chants.

    Salah not overly impressed by Oxlade-Chamberlain today.

    He should stick to something he knows, like talking shit about houses.

    Going to have to lavish a lot of money on players in January.

    Well yes, that is basically what it would have to be. A Super League with the much lower quality of football synonymous with the international game.

    Given UEFA have said they’ll boycott it, at the very least major concessions would be required to placate them and the European clubs who’ll hate the idea. A key thing, I think, would be nixing the vast majority of qualifiers (and mid-season internationals in general), which will require giving automatic places to countries with leagues that accommodate a substantial number of top-tier players. I think you’d need a cast of 20-24 major teams as permanent fixtures in the tournament, with the remaining slots up for grabs via a qualification path.

    That’s Messi. It wouldn’t take much for international retirement clauses to become standard, especially where young players are concerned.

    In which case I’d hope the biggest clubs in Europe use their weight to effectively bar players in their leagues from international football. Those who allegedly love representing their country above all else would just have to decide whether to continue being paid 100k + per week by their clubs or instead switch to whatever fee the local FA can cobble together on a per-game basis.
