    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.
  2. I see Vigoroux, Ex Liverpool 'player' and Leyton Orient keeper has stuck his oar in then been a bit of a cunt with a Liverpool fan. The club’s goalkeeper tweeted: “Interesting when we were in the same position before a Carabao Cup tie against Spurs last season?” Told by one Liverpool fan it saved Orient 'getting stuffed', Vigouroux responded:: “It probably did mate but it lost the club, tv money etc which for a club at this level is important… I see you’re from the Cotswolds mate maybe try supporting your local club and helping them out.” My take was at the time, that game shouldnt have been awarded to Spurs despite the fixture difficulty.

    I think there's built in performance bonuses such as avoiding relegation, finishing mid table next season etc built in!
  7. The Premier League has told its 20 clubs that their Covid-19 testing regime will no longer include twice-weekly PCR tests for players and staff, with a greater reliance on lateral flow tests (LFTs) to keep track of the changing picture of infections. The league’s chief executive Richard Masters wrote to clubs to tell them that, from Thursday, the focus will be on LFTs with players and staff undergoing them the day before matches and on all training days. Anyone returning a positive test will still have to take a laboratory-checked PCR test for confirmation. The switch is in line with the new government policy that will place less emphasis on PCR tests. The Premier League’s clinical oversight group believe that the most effective method of surveilling the infection among players is to use LFTs. The data has shown some PCRs returning positive cases long after the virus has cleared. The clubs were told that the twice-weekly PCRs were no longer providing the benefits they did at the start of the Omicron outbreak. The Telegraph has reported that across the public government health officials have drawn up plans to restrict PCR tests to those who display symptoms. Under those measures anyone who is asymptomatic - around 40 per cent of cases - will be able to return to work more swiftly. Premier League footballers and staff testing positive will still take a PCR, but will no longer be subject to the mandatory twice-weekly PCR tests. The Premier League is facing a backlog of games because of the postponements over the Christmas period, although for the time being the focus switches to the League Cup semi-finals and the FA Cup third-round weekend. The league fixture schedule does not resume until Tuesday. There are still 19 postponed games on the Premier League’s official fixture list which are yet to be designated a date. As things stand, 91 per cent of fixtures scheduled to date have been fulfilled. The Premier League is still in what it terms “emergency measures” implemented in mid-December which have seen a marked increase in the testing programme and greater restrictions placed on social mixing at training grounds and stadiums. The most recent cohort of 14,250 tests carried out in the period from Dec 27 to Sunday returned 94 new positive cases. That was the first fall in positive cases for eight weeks. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/football/2022/01/05/premier-league-end-twice-weekly-pcr-tests/
  8. All you'd need do was go down a shit farm with about 50 jam jars, wave them through the air then screw the lids on and sell 'em on fleabay at 50 quid a time.

    Good shout there Ronnie. Soz out of rep for the other thread but will be back when juiced up again!

    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    I didnt see anything about shouting for null and void the season as people were 'more important' though! It was more play on and be fucked!
  11. So true that Ronnie, lad. It's easy for some to say ignore it but that's how the 'wall pushers' and 'you murdered your own' shit grows if it's not called out. It grinds my fucking gears the shit that get hurled at us and the club. Doesnt matter what online comments section you go to, Mirror, Mail, Telegraph, you get the same stereotypical shit. AVFC making official tweets about a competition and game they arent even involved with. WTF's that all about and Stevie's manager there? Oh we cancelled the game because Mo, Sadio and even Keita fucked off to ACON? I dont think Mo and Sadio have played in the EFL Cup, Keita might. The game's rescheduled before their return and arsenal have got home advantage. Orient being kick out last season's been raised. That was an unbelievable decision by the EFL in my view.

    Mohamed Salah

    And had to be heavily convinced. But that's different to being at a club like Real who've been heavily linked to Mbappe and Haaland.

    Senegal reporting 9 covid positive cases in their camp ahead of ACON. Sadio not currently reported as being a positive.
  14. They can play their kids. You know, like they are saying we should despite having none available apparently. Fucking tough titty to them.
  15. Have Mo and Sadio played in the EFL Cup this season?! Anyone pointed this out to him yet?
  16. Aston Villa FC utter scum. Sort it out Stevie.

    Glad we agree!
  18. Amazing, isnt it? Villa fans, shite fans and mancs all chipping in. They seem to have gone myopic as well as amnesic that their own clubs recently pleaded for postponements. Well, united just said we arent playing for 2 weeks so the PL let them have their way.

    Mohamed Salah

    You're mistaking Guardiola's management style with Jurgen's. Im not a pessimist.
  20. Unrest amongst the players already? I reckon that pendnandez and ronaldo are real shit stirrers behind the scenes. As I keep saying, they are where we were after 1990.

    Mohamed Salah

    Real want Mbappe first, Haaland second. Im far from convinced Mo would be ok being third pick. And he'd just be another player there, he just needs to ask fatty Hazard. If he went to city, he's not starting every game and would probably be lucky to play 1 in 3. Personally, I dont think he'd consider another PL club but that's just my view.

    Mohamed Salah

    Personally, I take Mo's statement to mean he wants some kind of assurance Jurgen will still be manager for the duration (or best part of) his next contract. But, can Mo honestly think someone like Barcelona are going to win anything major in the next 4 years? He's intimated the money isnt the 'b' all so would he go to PSG to win things? He's played in Italy and knows the score there. Germany with Bayern, who knows? While players love winning things, is being nailed on Bundesliga Champions every season appealling to him?

    Utter bullshit. One doctor made those claims and was derided by his peers. He's now practicing in the US, what a surprise.
  24. I honestly dont think we're doing any different from other clubs if you looked at online articles about other clubs covid test results.
