I can see why, but it feels a bit forced to me, in a sort of Jack Wilshere or Joey Barton way.

Aye, come back to me once he’s inevitably gone to shit and I’ll start going on about “pointing does not equal leadership” or some bollocks. For not though, I’m loving him. Much needed injection of someone with some fucking standards.

Sure every club is getting plenty during the break

Yeah seemingly. Kaka and Rivaldo have definitely been quite vocal about it.

Romario’s some kind of centrist
Vincent Kompany’s dad’s a mayor

I know Socrates was left-wing, that’s about the only one I can think of who isnt/wasn’t.

Oh yeah, some notable Italian footballers/managers love fascists - Buffon, Capello, Di Canio, maybe there’s more?

think the guy was a bit of a nutcase at sporting too, so probably legit.

Feel like I remember Wijnaldum being pro-Corbyn, but can’t find evidence from a quick google. Seems like a nice lad though, so I’m gonna believe it.

Also saw my first ever rating of 2 during a match! Young Italian goalkeeper who conceded 6 in a CL game against me

Did the decent thing and signed him instantly as it turns out he’s quite good?
