i’m kind of glad he’s gone tbh. after seeing that horrific injury he sustained in 2016, I find it quite difficult to watch him play.


#482

The Southampton manager looks like he is going for a shift in Sainsbury’s chilled section after the match is over.


#483

He looks like the never spotted milliband brother


#484

Locked in the attic.


#485

Weird vibe in here again


#486

He’s well good too


#487

Enjoyed yesterday’s match at the Bridge despite the result. Ref got everything right in the first half and very little right in the second, although he was right to bin off Fabregas.

MOTD highlights severely misrepresent the shape and incidents of the game.

I rescind my upthread worries about Morata - he’ll be fine.


#488

‘Expected goals’. The stat no one needs or wanted.


#489

put all your @bugduv inspired beer tokens on newcastle - spurs to draw later please


#490

My cursed spurs mate decided not to go to this at the last minute so Spurs odds of getting a result have gone from 0% to 0.1‰


#491

Not a lot of banter from Batshuayi twitter today :disappointed:


#492

Friendship Cup today!


#493

This has done me


#494

All trains cancelled thanks to a fatality at Milton Keynes. Armchair red status restored :disappointed:


#495

Ah that sucks (for you and, well, the reason you’re not going). I’ve still only been to one game at OT :confused:


#496

Got plenty more lined up this season so it’s not the end of the world (beyond the cash being a bit galling) feel dead bad for some kids that were sat on the train pre-cancellation though. They were devastated :disappointed:


#497

I like the metric when you put it against goals scored to see how prolific a striker actually is tbf


#498

Oh no! I’m so sorry mate :slightly_frowning_face:


#499

Gutted tbh


#500

Cheers, friends. Could be worse though, could be in a position where throwing yourself in front of a train seems like an option. Poor bastard. As I’m sure you can imagine there were some extremely sensitive and considered opinions flying around the carriage. One charming bloke said “he’d offer to kill them himself”. Twats.
