February Football Thread: Champions Elect


#1261

one of those things that someone who doesn’t care about football must look at and think everyone involved in football is completely off their heads


#1262

Definitely. There are only 5 of them, they’re in their late 40s and none of them are professional footballers.


#1263

that’s actually quite funny though and makes more sense than playing a team’s song at them


#1264

Enjoying the “Conte was an absolute fucking genius to get this bunch of shitarses to the top of the league and would have sorted them right out if given half a chance” angle.

Get constant joy from Chelsea’s churn of managers, as well as them selling off their best young players to become worldies elsewhere. And only mild annoyance when they win something.


#1265

Whilst I’m very reluctant to choose “post-match club music banter” as the hill to die on, I am pretty sure this is untrue and City have been playing One Step Beyond after beating us for a few years now.


#1266

Think this Paddy Power/Rhodri Giggs thing is surprisingly decent bants from them. Punching up and doing it in a relatively subtle way (for PP at least), with most of the bants implied without saying anything truly malicious (he can’t think of anyone he hates etc.). As the injured party, Rhodri is well and truly entitled to make a few quid from it IMO.

Flying elbow off the top of the stands.
Beyond the Mat style damage.


#1275

Game’s gone eh boys


#1276

Imagine how much Guendouzi would command.


#1277

Genuinely, good for him, hope it goes well for him


#1278

fucking hell, man.

I know they’re saving on the transfer fee, but I don’t wanna live in a world where Aaron Ramsey earns 400 thousand a week.


#1279

Called this trend when Neymar’s move happened. We’re in an era where transfer fees for players under contract are soooo high, that more and more players will simply sit out there contract and demand outrageous wages and signing on fees (see also, Alexis Sanchez). Clubs will be happy to pay them because the alternative is spending £100m on the player alone before taking their salary into account. I shit myself in ways I never used to when a player’s contract is running down now.


#1280

if 400 grand was the figure they settled on, imagine how much he was asking for.
