    This was put out a while ago and people said it looks like a sweat top (and it does!)! Still not convinced this would have been next season's shirt.

     

    There would have been a few tweaks here and there but the basic design is what they'd have looked like. Porto are sponsored by NB and have just released their new kits, and they have the same collar and sleeve trim. It looks like NB were opting for just 2 collar designs, with the variety coming in the form of the print on the front of the shirts.

     

    I think Nike should do what they did for their international teams in 1998. Each team had their own different design, and that design was used for both home and away kits. The goalkeeper kits were the same across the board, but that's the case nowadays anyway.

    Some major dodgy shit in the Bundesliga.

     

    Werder Bremen started the day in the automatic relegation spot on 28 points, with Fortuna Dusseldorf starting the day 2 points above them in the table in the relegation/promotion play-off spot. Werder had a goal difference of -32 while Fortuna were on -28. Werder had to win big and hope Fortuna either lost or could only draw. So what happened today? Werder beat Koln 6-1 at home while Fortuna lost 3-0 at Union Berlin, thus sending Fortuna down and Werder living to fight another day. Koln were already safe from the drop and are historically one of Fortuna's local rivals. Oh, and Werder had only won 1 game at home all season before today!

     

    Gladbach have secured 4th spot and a place in next season's Champions League. It would be great if we could face them again. There's a camaraderie between the two sets of fans going back to the 1970s, and (assuming fans are allowed in again) the atmosphere would be electric.

     

     

     

    Werder Bremen beat Heidenheim on away goals in the promotion/relegation play-off to stay in the Bundesliga. A goalless draw at home at the weekend followed by a 2-2 draw tonight. Hamburg survived by the skin of their teeth on a few occasions before finally falling through the relegation trap door 3 years ago. They are still in the second tier. Werder will need to change something to try and ensure they aren't in this predicament next season. Incidentally, Hamburg are the German version of Aston Villa. The biggest club from the country's second biggest city, and a European Cup winner in the early 80s.


  3. In general, they are more open-minded than you might think over wear and tear, because they know the car is susceptible to the same wear and tear as a privately owned vehicle of the same type/age/usage. However, if it looks like it's had more dings than a Hong Kong taxi, they could enforce some of the penalty clauses that are in the fine print.

  4. Nous. Organisation. Liveliness. Grit. Bravado. Tenacity. Precision. Urgency. Nuisance-factor. Skill.

     

    I don't ask for much.

     

    Hypnotise our players into thinking it's not done and dusted if that's what it takes, so they approach this game with the same intensity and focus they did in the majority of our games prior to the lockdown. Brighton have got a bit of breathing space between them and the sides at the bottom, so I've no idea if they'd rest some of their main players to save them for games against teams they feel they are more likely to get points from. We just need to do our thing, and for some of our lads at least, that means not playing like they're distracted, half-arsed or drunk!

  5. Barcelona have had to postpone the release of their new kits because of colour run issues. They are apparently considering suing Nike for potential loss of revenue as they've had to return all their stock so haven't got any new kits to sell yet. Greedy bastards though the Catalan club are, it's worth keeping an eye on because it might indicate that Nike have production issues that could affect all their teams.


  6. The players are finding it difficult to get physically and mentally tuned in to the task at hand because, other than trying to set a new points record and completing a clean sweep at home, there isn't much left for them to play for. The main job has been done already. As a result, we are seeing disjointed performances like these.

     

    That doesn't excuse some of the individual calamities and cruising through games we've seen from a few of our players. Intensity is our identity, as the saying goes. That means intensity of application as well as intensity of focus. It's something the squad needs to learn and adapt to quickly. Doing it when you have a target to aim for is one thing, but keeping it going when a race has been won is the next challenge. Being able to do that means that slackness and thinking you've won it all will simply not do.

     

    Good goals from Sadio and Curtis. The latter opening his Premier League account a day after signing a new contract, just like Saka of Arsenal. Hopefully Curtis can get a few more appearances under his belt in the remaining games.

     

    The slapdicks in the VAR studio need to get off Netflix and start paying attention to the games. They've dropped quite a few clangers this week.
