  1. Looked fantastic again today against Manchester United. What a beast.
  2. Zouma's reaction to Matic's wonder goal was so adorable!!
  3. Nice article on Cesar https://www.theguardian.com/football/2017/mar/31/cesar-azpilicueta-linked-barcelona-loved-chelsea I have a huge crush on the guy. Handsome, dedicated, talented, hard working, well mannered, loyal There is no one I'd leave my husband for...I think.
  4. There's a thread on redcafe citing an article saying that Roman's relationship with Conte isn't great. The article doesn't seem to have much meat to it thankfully. http://www.redcafe.net/threads/sportwitness-conte-and-abramovich-relationship-is-strained.427587/
  5. Apparently Buffon interrupted a half time talk by asking about the players' bonus, and Conte went ballistic on him. I can't see any managers responding well to that, and it was dickish on Buffon's part regardless of the fact that they had already won the league. Half time talks are no place to ask about monetary bonuses. That makes a lot of sense. I sure hope you're right.
  6. If Costa is even considering a move to China, then I'm disappointed, surprised, and disgusted. Perhaps I'm naive. I genuinely thought Costa is someone who plays with passion for the game, not someone who would bugger off to a meaningless league purely for the money. Seriously, what could he buy with a higher salary that can't can't afford on his current salary? This is heartbreaking if true even if it doesn't come to fruition.
  7. Probably smug as sh*t because he (Wenger) was also sent off for kicking a water bottle, but instead of a ban he got an apology. http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/football/eng_prem/8229352.stm The FA are a joke.
  8. I wasn't aware that his father is ill. That is certainly a big stressor that puts people into a bad mood. If that's the reason behind his personal displays recently, then perhaps he needs to take a break and tend to his family.
  9. I'm far from a Mourinho fan, but the referees and FA have been treating him so unfairly. He gets sent to the stands, fined, suspended, etc. for any little nitpicking they can think of. Other managers have been allowed to get away with running on in the middle of a game and pushing an opposition player. I actually feel sorry for Mourinho, words unthinkable at times in the past.
  10. Maybe I'm getting soft. I don't feel anything negative toward Rafa at the moment. In fact I give him props for sticking with Newcastle and taking the risk of being humiliated in the Championship. I wish him well there. I've always been critical about Jose and stand by my previous criticisms, but I also feel sympathetic toward him now. After Burnley, I really do think he's being unfairly targeted by the FA, and people are taking a "blame the victim" approach with this specific issue. Consider this. Pochettino ran on during the middle of a game and pushed Willian. He was trying to break up a fight started by Danny Rose, and instead of pushing Rose away, he pushed Willian. Nothing happened to Pochettino. He wasn't sent to the stands, wasn't banned from a subsequent game, wasn't fined. Can you imagine if Jose had done that? He's been sent to the stands and fined for some frustrated words that were arguably true, for goodness sake. The FA would have him jailed for assault if he did what Pochettino did. Yet because it's Jose, it would be laudable and smugly amusing to punish him like that.
  11. In fairness I do think he's been treated unfairly by the FA in terms of these and other comments. There are aspects of the FA that really do deserve criticism. Sometimes referees really are sh*t. The FA refuses to answer where all the fine money goes. As long as there is no accountability, they can continue to mete out punishments in arbitrary fashion. For them Jose is an easy target for the punishments because he's known as an unpleasant person. I don't think it's a campaign against him and his team, but I do think that there's discrimination against him as an individual within the FA.
  12. Dear cancer, F**k you. Sincerely, Everybody
  13. Very sad news. Willian's mother has passed away from brain cancer. http://weaintgotnohistory.sbnation.com/2016/10/13/13265548/chelsea-willian-mother-passes-away
  14. When I watched the England squad at Euros, with so many young players in their first tournament, I thought, they sure could use someone like JT to guide them through the stress of the experience. No one has more genuine passion and interest in mentoring young players. Maybe that's what Allardyce is thinking, having JT as a bench player whose primary purpose would be to lead and mentor.
  15. This article, the greatest piece of sports journalism in the history of the written word, is a treasure trove of brilliant pictures. http://www.slate.com/blogs/the_spot/2014/07/03/world_cup_player_introductions_a_deep_analysis_of_how_soccer_players_fold.html Be sure as well to watch the video at the top. England would have won by a landslide if not for Sterling ruining it at the end. I couldn't get the video to play on my phone, so you might need to be on a regular computer to see it.
