February Football Thread: Champions Elect


#1

So the transfer window banged shut yesterday. Count how many times you hear that said. Truth is it simply whimpered.


January Football Thread: Cups and Spurs Magic
#2

Leicester did a loan so that’s nice.

Have a feeling we’re gonna dick Fergie’s United at the weekend, and I can’t wait.


#3

Youri Tielemans signing for Leicester on loan is weird. Thought he was guaranteed to be at a squid by 21


#4

Fulham had a glimmer of a hope of survival but now the bats man has signed for Roy’s tyranid army and we have been relegated


#5

Been playing every game for Monaco, though they’ve been awful. The whole Adrien Silva thing was weird eh


#6

One of the classic small enjoyments of the transfer window is sifting through and finding out who still technically plays for Chelsea. Baba Rahman, this time.


#7

Lucas Paizon was on the bench last week!


#8

No longer when you look up Newcastle’s record transfer fee will it say “Michael Owen”, thank the lord


#9

Got Lazar Markovic and his bewildering eyebrows though.


#10

Where is Janet jazzy jazz jam nowadays???

(England’s great hope)


#11

Really hope Miguel Almiron doesn’t flop, he’s a silky player to watch.


#12

Beyond even Dream Team level stuff.


#13

Respectable mid table La Liga career, unfortunately. Looked like he’d either be a Utd starter or playing in the Finnish 2nd league a couple years ago


#14

Thought we were talking about Bebe here


#15

I did hope the next word in the headline was going to be Tart when I clicked on it


#16

I’ll hopefully be seeing Rayo Vallecano in late March when i head to Madrid. Immensely excited about seeing him and Gael Kakuta in the same team.


#17

Doncaster are only charging £10 for the cup game. Trains and hotel booked. I’m really looking forward to this.


#18

Barca and Madrid drawn against each other in the Copa semis. Nice surprise treat. that. First leg next Wednesday or Thursday


#19

Marco van Ginkel aa well


#20

I’ll also be seeing vallecano in March (in Barcelona). I’ve already seen gael kakuta play live though (we all remember his glittering loan spell at Fulham, of course)
