(Sorry :oops: )

Decent strike, but the reaction was definitely OTT

No, it's okay :lol: I knew I was more than likely writing it incorrectly. (That and I just wanted to type goalasso.)

Fans of Inverting the Pyramid (or just really old football) may be interested by the formation Argentina are playing in tomorrow:

Isn't that just basically a 4-3-3? His formations for Chile were like the too, they were great to watch in the last World Cup. Can imagine the massive headfuck he'd cause for all the thick pundits if he was managing in the premier league. Last season they acted like they'd never seen three at the back before so god knows what he'd do to them.

well, it depends on what the manager draws up.

most teams have various actual formations, depending on the phase of play (e.g. 441 when defending/424 when attacking) but what the manager sets up, and the heatmaps are what tell the 'true' story.

will be interesting to see the game.

Shame he only stayed at Sevilla for a season.

Glad to see United are bringing in Lindelof, hopefully it'll signal the end of the line for Smalling and/or Jones.

Sky Sports football viewing figures going well http://www.football365.com/news/sky-suf ... prem-games

The TV rights fees are absolutely mental.

Don't forget all the money they spunk up the wall on their punditry team - Henry is on £4m a year!

You mean apart from the bit where he hand balls it then hits the defender in the face with his hand?

Other than that though, you were robbed.

Sunderland fans - Jordan Pickford worth the fee?

Think it's hard to judge a keeper who makes lots of saves for a team fighting relegation - people don't tend to dwell on any mistakes they make as much as when it's a keeper that hasn't had much to do.

He's great. He's a leader and a character, an ace shot stopper and has great distribution. Look for his long ball assist for England u21's on YouTube for an example.

Obviously it's hard to value players in this market but his best years are definitely ahead of him, so it could be a decent investment for the fee.

Goalkeeper is the one position we've generally been pretty well stocked in over the last decade or so and in a short time playing for us he's managed to really stand out.
