    I despise Real Madrid. Always have. Always will.

    I love Barcelona. They are my second favourite club.

    Barcelona pretty much destroyed Real last season without Messi. They will be fine without Messi and Iniesta. Maybe their next decade won't be as good as the last though.

    Depends on how good are their replacements and how their rivals do as well. Their next decade will almost definitely be less successful but it's no surprise, there aren't many clubs in football that had such dominant periods like Barcelona have recently.

    Only team I ever had hate for was funnily enough, run by GOAT Arsene Wenger. The invincibles. Hated them so much I was cheering when Chelsea knocked them out of Europe. Now I don't have the same passion, I guess. Too old to hate. :p

    Started when RVN missed the Penalty that would have changed history, no unbeaten season or 49 for Arsenal. Just what happened after the penalty, I can understand joy at keeping a penalty out, but we had Jens Lehmann, Martin Keown and co getting in his face afterwards. It just rubbed me the wrong way. I was like, you bleep bleep bleep.

    All the pushing and screaming in his face from most of Arsenal players was really disgusting to see. Wish they never had that golden season.

    I guess it was fitting that RVN and Wazza ended their unbeaten run when they returned to Old Trafford.

    One thing they never did was back to back UCL titles. Shame.

    Barcelona were a big club before 2006 and will be forever. They aren't like Chelsea or Manchester City.

    Some teams were closer to achieving that. ;)

    They always will be, yes. But they won't be always so superior like they have been recently.

    Yes and no! If the rumours are true, it looks like we'll of purchased a failed Bolton left back for £25 Million and David Luiz will of returned :eek:

    Two weeks to see how that turns out whilst England are playing Slovakia? Not so much fun :p

    Why force Scholes to return for the n-th time and teach them that when we have The Dab King now? ;)

    Don't forget Jose knows to use Simeone tactics as well, and Simeone's team haven't been easy for you in the Champions League, have they? ;)

    We're just fortunate we got hold of Rijkaard Barcelona when we won in 2008. :p

    Somebody trolled me last night, almost had me convinced that Jack Wilshere was joining the Glens. lol

    Joe Hart joins Torino on a season loan.

    Doubt my hope is as ridiculous as chickens flying.

    hahah All I was seeing on my facebook page was people complaining about him. 2 minutes into the matches, ''where are their balls?'' And a lot of other stuff. Had to unfollow a few on my friend list because I was bored getting these angry Glentoran updates.

    Looking like David Luiz back to Chelsea could actually happen, crazy stuff.

    I'll always remember him and Cahill playing 120 minutes in Munich, on one leg each. It was a heroic effort from him, plus his on field personality is like what Conte displays on the touchline. So it makes sense.

    Fingers crossed we can get it done in time.

    It's nice not being linked with any player on a transfer deadline day. Business was done a while ago.

    It's great drama if you're involved in deadline day, but I agree, getting business done early usually works out best.

    United are still linked with Fabinho, but I wouldn't expect it. That was priority number one for King Jose. Have all the transfer done, not being in a catch up position, not feeling the Moyes with David or LVG. Special indeed.

    Wilshere on loan to Bournemouth.

    If it wasn't for that beautiful goal against Norwich, I would have probably had to look up who the guy is. :D That's how much he has disappeared.

    Loaned to Bournemouth. How embarrassing for the next Hoodle, Gascoigne, Robson, etc, etc. The next reject on the breadline more like. :p

    Ross Barkley to buck his ideas up or he will be the next Jack Wilshere.

    Getting loaned isn't really the embarrassing part. it is not what I would have expected at this stage of his career. Just with all the hype he used to get. You know what they say, don't believe the hype. You can only blame injury problems for so long.

    I could be wrong and he could be starting for England soon enough. He might rebuild himself here.

    He will have to wait. Wasn't selected in the latest squad.

    Leicester City have spent a club record 30 million on bringing the Algerian striker Islam Slimani from Sporting Clube de Portugal.

    That's a big goalscoring source that the Portuguese giants sold. 27 goals in 33 league appearances last season.

    Schweinsteiger retires from international football. The reception from the German crowd really touched him.

    Emotional scenes.

    I turned my ps4 on for the first time in months. I'm downloading the PES17 demo. Trying to play a football game at my post prime stage and with a ps4 controller. I'm sure I will have to take a few beatings before I get a win. Starting at the hardest level is the only way to play. Hopefully I can do United vs Barca.

    Excite.

    Sissoko snubs Everton and moves to Spurs. @TheMuzziah will love that.

    We'll miss Super Sli.:( I've never seen a player "growing" so much in so little time. He isn't the most technically evolved player, but he's relentless. I wish him the best and I hope Leicester fans will embrace him with the same passion we did.

    Having said that, we have Bas Dost, Castaignos, André and Joel Campbell in our team now. I think we'll be ok. :p

    (Kudos for using our real name, by the way)

    He's young enough to rebuild his career. Not like he's Balotellied it or anything. Think it could be an amazing signing for Bournemouth potentially. Some of the hype was probably excessive (isn't it always?) but I still expect him to have a good career as a top player.

    Yeah, I just had a look.

    Arsenal are available. Barcelona, France, Germany, Boca, River Plate, Corinthians and Flameng.

    I'll just have to cheese and use Barcelona. At least there is a choice. I remember old games when you only had 2 teams.

    I don't follow Primeira Liga much, but I saw him score in his last match when you played Porto. He looked quite emotional. Looks like he really enjoyed his time as well.

    Dost? That guy scored a lot of goals for Wolfsburg, good addition you got there.

    Well you corrected me recently. ;) Sporting CP is also fine I assume?

    Yes, I remember that... But most people end up making the same mistake again and you didn't. So you deserve kudos for that.
    Sporting CP is perfectly fine.

    We like all of our players, but some of them are a little more special on our eyes, like the players who developed at our academy in Alcochete (Rui Patrício, William Carvalho and so on) or players like Sli, who showed true grit and professionalism all the time. Besides that, he's a cool guy, well liked by everyone at the club.

    Yeah, I don't quite believe it yet. But it is, without a doubt, one of our best recent signings.

    Had one match. 1-1 vs Arsenal. Neymar for me in the first half, then Busquets got sent off and I could feel the heat. Have to relax on those slide tackles. Arsenal scored and I was lucky to hang on at the end. Mascherano got a man of the match 7. woohoo.

    Yeah, still only 24. I was thinking he was 26 for some reason. You never know, he could end up being one of the players of the season, if things go well for him. We'll see.

    haha classic Everton that, they are raging. Apparently everything was agreed, private jet sorted to take him to Liverpool and he didn't turn up. Lol. Kept refusing Koemans calls as well.



    You can always rely on Everton to give you a good laugh. :D :p

    GOAT laugh Klopp it has to be said. It's infectious.

    Probably would've been a better move to Everton though to be fair. He's not good enough to get into Spurs Midfield on a regular basis. Surprised that they've gone in for him. A Good Euro 2016 does not make him an amazing player.
