#2

Vardy to stay on with Leicester. Clever work getting Arsenal interested so he could get himself a more lucrative deal.


#3

Think Liverpool have requested one of their early games at Anfield (West Brom maybe) to be played away as well as the new bit of a stand won’t be ready yet.


#4

The Burnley match was moved. No home games until Leicester on the 10th of Sept.


#5

Enda McNulty is following in the footsteps of Celtic performance consultant Jim McGuinness and is working for Manchester United in developing the “mental skills” of Academy players.


#6

That’s mad …

Just heard Mourinho’s first interview. As modest and unassuming as ever. I can see Bobby Charlton losing his hair before long …


#7

Christ that’s mental, he spoke at a conference I was at a few years ago and was horrendous, lots of buzz words and stuff he read out of book, absolutely nothing interesting or insightful about him


#8

Definitely is, seems you took a lot away from that conference :grin:


#9

Not the PL but new Brentford signing, John Egan, scored both goals in their Championship victory on Saturday over Big Mick’s Ipswich. This John Egan lad has a famous father.


#10

A good Cork man, young Egan.


#11

His da was one of the best goal poachers in Gaelic Football.


#12

Jaysus the way the English go on about ‘poor’ Joe Harte. A bloody ordinary keeper who has a reputation way above its true worth.

The only time he was head and shoulders above anyone else was doing dandruff ads.


#13

David Seaman has been the best keeper they’ve had, I reckon, since their last world-class keeper, Peter Shilton. To be fair, Hart seems to have gone about his business without kicking up a fuss in public - probably because Man City will make up any shortfall in his wages after a loan move elsewhere (Napoli?). The English media will use this against Pep at their first opportunity.


#14

Wilshere looking at possible loan move to Palace, Watford or Bournemouth …


#15

He’d be more at home with Swindon?

Another dislikable, overrated twat, in my view.


#16

It’s becoming a bit of a pattern with English players. Maybe it’s all these bloody foreign managers - bah! So Sterling, Stones, Wilshere are not the next world superstars after all?? Sure Iceland already know that …


#17

I’d have thought that Sideshow Bob rejoining Chelsea would be enough to tell you everything that is wrong about professional football…

But then again…


#18

Very impressive looking new stand at Anfield. Were any ressers present?


#19

Not the first time Mata has done this. Really seems like a sound guy.

Good on Francis Benali. An average player who probably made a comfortable living for himself out of football, giving something back.
