You would have been mesmerized by Daniel James doing some fifa stuff. I'll go along with the people and say he will be fouled a lot. lol

Enjoy the shows.
There’s probably no bigger compliment in the English game lol. If you’re being hacked at, you’re a top player.

Hazard had that a lot, Man Utd used to put Herrera on him, he had no other role in the side but to be his shadow and hack him at every opportunity. Time for someone new to take up the position now he’s gone to Spain I guess :)

Thanks! I’ve got up early and seen the first set of the Wimbledon final, liking what I’m seeing so far.

I hope United pay whatever the price is. I'm worried about Ole's capabilities now. More and more it seems like he is talking more crap than The Beatles.

They better not do!

I want to see the slo-mo Jones face when Tammy Abraham gets his hat-trick on opening day.

I look forward to it. Obviously with a different outcome.

I was being a bit harsh there. Frustrated because real life isn't like football manager. All Ed Woodward gets to do in my game is renew contracts while I go and buy players I want. Back to reality. He sounds positive and optimistic so that is all good. 20 goals for Sanchez easy. :p But seriously, time for Ole to make his mark. I don't really care if other clubs laugh at the fee of Maguire if he comes and becomes the man at centre back.

I'm not sure what to make of Maguire. He's pretty good, but I think people are still judging him from the World Cup where he became a bit of a cult hero. It wouldn't be a huge surprise if he becomes the next Stones/Jones. A reputation for being talented, only a matter of time before they make a move to a big club etc.. But they don't really have the ceiling people expected them to have.

Maybe he'll work out, wherever he goes. I wouldn't be surprised if he turns out to be just a decent starter for a top 4 side though.

I thought this was amusing. Sky sports talking about Newcastle.

On Bruce replacing Benitez, YouTube fan show The Magpie Channel's Matthew Renton said: "We've gone from dining at a Michelin-starred restaurant to eating uncooked chips at a burger van.


Bloody hell.

''Barcelona have made a £90m offer plus two players for Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar, according to Sky in Germany.

Sky in Germany, eh.


The La Liga club have given PSG a list of six players that could be included in the deal, including Philippe Coutinho, Ousmane Dembele, Ivan Rakitic, Nelson Semedo, and Malcom.''


hmmmmm

When you think about the price paid for Coutinho and Dembele. Barca wants Neymar.

£90 Million and old man Rakitic+Malcolm?

Have a word with yourself, Barca. Bit like Arsenal bidding £50,000,001 for Suarez back in the day.

So, me and my mate were talking. Supposed to go to Spiderman with him and it has been cancelled 3 times now. lol We don't see each other much so randomly he said that we're going to see Man Utd vs Burnley in January. I was like, yeah, why not. I haven't been to a game since 2014 or maybe it was late 2013, the ugly City game, raining too. Can only hope United are worth a watch by the time we get there. I quite prefer this over an early season game. Hope we are competing and not fighting for top 10 position. (y)

lol Behave yourself. At least we got the grand piano introduction. The rest of them go and keep the ball up a few times. :p

*Forgive me. I read that as United and Sanchez. haha Must pay closer attention.

Not sure he’ll get much playing time this season. Maybe they can loan him to Chelsea, we’ll be lucky to get double digit goals by Christmas the way things are looking :cautious:
I think you're right about playing time next season. Usually it would be all signs point to the Coca Cola cup, providing we manage to stay in it next season. Now that Greenwood has scored a couple we can expect more charts telling us how we do better without Rashford in the starting 11.

Coca Cola Cup. Now that’s a blast from the past! I think that’s probably a trophy that will mean more for United next season. Liverpool and City are in another universe, and probably will be for at least a couple more years. The rest need to rebuild and retool so they’re in a position to take advantage when their standards slip.

Kind of like in F1 where teams are looking to 2021 when the rule changes come into effect. Same with the NFL with someone like the Dolphins looking to tank this season so they’re well stocked in a couple of years time when Brady will of probably retired.

Getting better is one thing, timing it right is the key.

Was at the Utd match the team that started looked so tentative and unsure of what to do when attacking, the subs really turned it on.

The football itch is running wild. Need new season action now. Let's say Greenwood scores in all remaining games, or gets another couple at least. I'm one of those good enough old enough kind of people, average age of team on Footy is always so young. But yeah, just getting ahead of myself with excitement over him scoring in pre-season.

Maguire is more or less done. According to somebody.

I still wonder where Bale is gonna end up. Made it clear he isn't part of the plans. ZZ saying best for everybody if he leaves. Rare to hear this sort of thing.

There’s Europa League qualifiers, if that’s your bag.

Wolves play Crusaders apparently. I was intrigued by the prospect of a couple of thousand Peaky Blinders from the Black Country turning up for a game in Jerusalem. Apparently the Crusaders are from N Ireland though? :unsure: That’s disappointing.

Not my bag unless United are involved. :p

Back in the day one of Crusaders strikers turned up at our boys brigade to run a penalty competition. Using five-a-side nets. So I faced some penalties from the (semi) pro. I just had a look there. This is the guy https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stephen_Baxter_(footballer)

Says he’s the manager! That’s impressive, sort of. Doesn’t everyone know each other in N Ireland? ;) Sounds like you must of put an end to his playing career, clearly couldn’t strike it like you :p although to be fair to him, I imagine it’s tough to do in full chain mail wielding a sword and shield. Whoever thought of that kit idea needs firing.

haha Yeah, always the chance you will bump into Rory McIlroy in the gym. Needs to get back in after his performance at the Open.

Still waiting patiently for the next season of Peaky Blinders.

Baxter had a good run at Linfield as well. Can sort of remember back then because we did have some Crusaders supports in school. He was hot stuff. Local celeb coming tonight. WOOHOO Thinking of the Boys Brigade again. haha Some good memories. I always dreaded being called up to raise or lower the flag. The easiest task ever but I always had this thought in my head that I'd f it up. End up ripping it. :p

Oh I can believe that. The bumping into Rory McIlroy part anyway, you at the gym is pushing it a bit :p but yeah, snooker pals with Patrick Kielty, quick chat with Jimmy Nesbitt when you're both doing with your big shop. Classic Northern Ireland :)

I'm hearing conflicting reports about Peaky Blinders. Some people are saying it's starting in a week or so's time, others are saying Autumn. Watch this space!

Boys Brigade is like Scouts i'm guessing? We never had any famous people come and give us a visit, not that there are any round here. Stan Collymore lives in my village, but we don't see much of him. I think he only comes out at night, and even then he tends to stick to the forested areas :giggle:

Hope Bale goes back to Tottenham

China are the only rumours i've heard.

I think Real Madrid have handled it so badly. For a club who live off signing the very best players in the world, it's strange. The next big name they sign now knows they'll be frozen out, sent to China etc.. if they fall out of favour. James Rodriguez has been messed around too and years later he's still in limbo.

Not really the precedent you want to be setting if you're a club who's life blood is vulturing elite players from clubs. There will come a point where players will start to think twice, especially if they're so elite that they have their pick of clubs.

Paul Ince was having a go. And this time I agree with everything, darling. o_O

''We've got Marcus Rashford who scored 11 goals last year and gets a new contract.

Jesse Lingard was diabolical last year, he really, really was. Then there’s Alexis Sanchez. They got nothing out of Sanchez whatsoever. ‘So as much as we’re talking about the defence and Chris Smalling and Harry Maguire, surely we’ve got to be looking at who’s going to be playing up top. ‘We need to be looking at that because attacking-wise they’re not great. ‘Martial? He’s a fizzy drink. He pops now and then. One moment he’s great, one moment he’s not.''

Really hard not to say spot on. The fizzy drink comparison is so true, darling.

It's very interesting reading about Real Madrid and Gareth Bale. He signed that deal until 2022 at 550k a week and won't leave unless it is right for the family.

All player power shows are not created equal. I'm quite enjoying this one because it seems like there is a lack of appreciation for what Bale has done for Real Madrid.

China offering 1 million a week. That's like Eric Cantona's transfer fee. lol Wowzers. The world of today.

Team Bale ftw.

Bale again. Was reading a positive report about United for once. It says we may finally be learning from mistakes. No helicopter this time, we just offered Bale a black taxi ride and that just won't do. Nah, it keeps on target with what Ole was saying about future signings. He wants the young up and coming hungry tigers. Sancho is still his dream signing apparently but that is a dream.

Newcastle break their transfer record for the second time this year. 40m for Joelinton.

Chelsea under 11’s 2-1 Barcelona Griezmann’s

Hard to really judge as we always beat Barcelona. Abraham, Mount and Pulisic all had rave reviews though.
It says you looked good. Too early to say if Lord Lampard is a success. Guess that will be answered on first day. :p

Really interested to see how USA golden boy Pulisic does in the premier league.

I’ve been impressed so far. Hard to tell what the football will look like, but there seems to be a clear vision and message at multiple levels (the young players being signed to long term contracts, they know they have a real chance to play key roles this season etc..). I think that’s what’s been needed for years and the fans have been desperate for it, so pointing in the right direction at last is a good feeling.

As for Pulisic, I’d heard he’s a great leader and mentally excellent. Not heard great things about him as a player though. From what I’ve seen from a limited preseason and his time with USA this summer, he’s looked incredible. Mount has been the stand out though, and Barkley has impressed. Shame they all play the same position.

But yeah, with how preseason has gone, that Man Utd v Chelsea game on opening weekend could have a couple of interesting lineups!

Haven't been following transfer news much this summer. Is there any true in the Maguire and Fernandes links, are the transfers likely to happen?

In other news Atletico want to block Griezmann's La Liga registration for Barcelona. @Tiki-Taka what say you? Yes or no? :p

Been hearing the Fernandes links are mainly from Portugal and there is more chance of Maradona returning to the Argentina starting 11. Still hearing about Longstaff. He seems like the number one target.

It is all quiet on the western front with Maguire at the minute. Leicester have come out and said they don't have to sell blah blah blah. Ole talked about patience. I'd say there is a chance. Another number one target. Just imagine that for a minute. That would be 4 this summer. But not getting ahead of myself. Don't think the window is done with 2, so we just gotta wait. The usual.

Savic has been a bit of a footy legend the last few years. Says his agent (Kezman, yo) is over to finalize a deal but then it says it relies on what Pogba is doing. Also, it said Real have cooled their interest.

No Chinese club will ever offer 1m per week , There’s an 100% tax on the rich , So for the Chinese to pay him that , They have to pay 2 million , 1 million to Bale and the rest to the state

Bale and Zidane with bad romance. Could end up becoming foobtall lovers.

It's the only news I've heard today so forgive me. Lukaku wanted by Juventus and Dybala would be part of the deal.
