    Most Shocking Celebrity Stories

    Not while making that fappening video I hope.
  3. Last season was certainly more intense. Going all the way in the CL and only missing out on winning the league by a gnat's chuff following a record points haul was exceptional. This year, the fact that we surged ahead in the league and won it ridiculously early, coupled with an early exit from the CL, has meant this season hasn't had last season's intensity. The lockdown eased much of the footballing tension, and clinching the title just a couple of games after returning has taken all the pressure off. These two years have certainly been the most incredible and rewarding in all my time following the club. That it has been achieved with basically the same squad only highlights what an outstanding job they've done.

    Man City - the new bitters?

    Questions for Pep: How much do you earn monthly for coaching Manchester City? How much do you earn monthly in consultancy fees for services provided to the City Football Group? Since you offer all this consultancy advice, what can you tell us about the other clubs in the CFG stable, such as Girona or NYC or Melbourne? Why are you so personally defensive when all the UEFA allegations concern a period before you even arrived at the club? Does it not seem strange to you that Manchester City's commercial reach is on a par with your former club Barcelona, what with the Catalan club's famous history and attractiveness for players from allover the world? Why do you wear the same extremely shit clothes as sported by tech billionaires like Zuckerberg and Jobs? Why do you wear the same extremely shit clothes as sported by tech billionaires like Zuckerberg and Jobs? How many times did I ask that last question?

    Racism in football - is there a problem?

    Racism does indeed exist in every country. I doubt it could ever be truly eradicated because human history has been marked by discrimination of one form or another from the very beginning. Where we are at an advantage today is that we have that wealth of history to look back on and learn from. We can educate the collective mindset. This disadvantage is that there are many people with influence who are looking back on that same history, taking the very worst aspects and using them to fuel hatred and division today. These people are very loud and very visible. There are people in power today actively encouraging the sort of behaviour and thinking that leads to a 12 year old spouting racist abuse on social media.

    Summer 2020 Transfer Thread

    Is this extention contingent upon whether or not he leaves in this transfer window? As in, if he and the club agree a deal with another club for a transfer, then there's no need to sign a contract extention. If a transfer doesn't materialise, then the club can trigger a one-year extention to protect his value on the books. Unfortunately for us, the leagues he would do well in, like Serie A or the Turkish Superlig, are populated by clubs who pretend to be paupers, always looking for a loan with an option to buy (which is never taken up) and the parent club paying the majority (or all) of the wages.

    Man City - the new bitters?

    The German newspaper Der Spiegel published a series of findings and irregularities in late 2018 after getting hold of email communications among the City hierarchy. These publishings related to dodgy dealing dating from 2013 and earlier, where City needed to cook the books and mask direct owner investment as corporate sponsorship in order to meet FFP guidelines. It's because UEFA's investigation was at least 5 years after the event (and based on Der Spiegel's findings) that so many of the findings were deemed to be time-barred by CAS. I don't know how Der Spiegel got hold of their info but it's clear that the vast majority of it had been hidden from UEFA by City when UEFA were investigating their irregularities around 2014-ish. UEFA themselves made a point of saying this when they handed down the 2-year ban to City. Still, whatever irregularities UEFA did find back then were serious enough to hand down a hefty fine (not far short of 50 million Euros IIRC).

    Man City - the new bitters?

    The CAS ruling says that many of City's breaches were time-barred. Not all of them, but many. Which means there are some breaches which CAS is clearly aware of, yet has done nothing about. They've only fined City a pittance for not co-operating with UEFA's investigation by dragging it out and shutting up shop, not for any financial breaches. But dragging it out and shutting up shop is how these breaches became time-barred in the first place!

    Guess I didn't factor in Rodgers' team going all "Liverpool at Stoke" in that second half. Since that 9-0 thrashing of Saints, those two teams have racked up roughly the same number of points in the 25 games since.

    Other Football - 2019/20

    Leicester are 1-0 up at half time thanks to a Vardy goal following a comedy of errors at the back for Bournemouth. Bournemouth are brutally bad. Totally toothless up front with the likes of Solanke, a lot of pointless 'hard work' in midfield from the likes of Gosling and Lerma (who are too slow to track runners), and slapdick defending from the likes of Kelly. And Ake has had to go off injured with a groin strain caused by having to defend a Jamie Vardy shot after Bournemouth's Danjuma passed the ball back towards his own penalty area without looking.

    I don't know who you're talking about here but I'm going to guess Aurier and Pepe. The former especially is very much a window-licking jamook.

    Standard protocol from the two-wrongs-make-a-right-and-make-shit-up-as-you-go-along PGMOL handbook. They fucked up against Villa in midweek so they are doing them a favour today. Ergo, there are no fuck-ups and nothing to be held accountable for.
  20. I hope the Arsenal players jib off the guard of honour thing. It isn't necessary for every team to do it. City were the first to do it (sort of!) but that's because it was our first game after the title was confirmed, and City just so happened to have been the dethroned champions. Our players have a humility about them which shows as they walk through the guard of honour whereas when they walk out side by side with their opponents like usual, the players look hungry, focused and ready to be ruthless. I have a strong suspicion that Klopp would agree.

  22. We might lack sharpness in the early part of the season but I'd expect things to be back on track after the first month or so. We just need to make sure we are still right in the mix if/when others start to tail off from the lack of a proper break later in the year. The lockdown has had an impact for sure, but our current lack of edge having sewn up the league early is the same problem that has befallen the likes of PSG, Bayern and Juventus in recent years. All have suffered a dip in performance at the business end of the Champions League campaign because they've not had to sustain the level of intensity. We aren't in it ourselves, but had we got past Atletico we might have suffered a similar fate against our next opponents.
