Barcelona are in an odd situation.
They still have a great group of players but for some reason they aren't playing at the level most would expect at the moment.

Maybe the fans may need to lower their ludicrous expectations for a few years and not expect to win the league and get to the champions league final all the time.

I'm not playing if it's super sunny though and I reserve the right to score own goals if we play Luton Town.


You would get £2.5m for singing YNWA?


Crisp has the voice of an angel, he's worth far more than £25k a week.

I read somewhere that tonight's Bayern first eleven players are worth £80m altogether. :shock:

Also, Lewandowski, Muller and Gnabry. All three have scored over 90+ goals together this season.

I assume you mean they cost that much? Lewandowski Would cost more than that alone right now.

I really enjoyed my time as thread host for the 18/19 season so would be happy to take on the responsibility again, but if someone else wants a go that hasn't before then they should go for it :D

Happy enough for Dowbo to continue.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

Looks like we're getting Shane Duffy, it's as if my rant about him being an awful person was picked up by Celtic's antennae and they thought "Yep, we'll go with that one."

Away against West Ham gives me hope Newcastle can get a win and start off the season brightly although the festive season fixtures looking bad with matches against man city liverpool and leicester.

Derby County: EFL charges over spending rules dismissed

Derby County have had charges relating to a breach of English Football League spending rules dismissed.

The findings mean Derby will avoid a points deduction and fine, which would have come into play for 2020-21 Championship season.


Right outcome and a massive own goal for the EFL.
