Ah it’s okay. I didn’t think we were bad first half, but we were bad for five minutes of the second half and that was that.

Apparently my coat was briefly visible on the telly :smiley:

You don’t remember Diego as manager

With two matches remaining in the qualification tournament for the 2010 World Cup, Argentina was in fifth place and faced the possibility of failing to qualify, but victory in the last two matches secured qualification for the finals.[250][251] After Argentina’s qualification, Maradona used abusive language at the live post-game press conference, telling members of the media to “suck it and keep on sucking it”.

Wrong thread

This interview with De Bruyne’s the dryest, most pathetic thing I’ve read in ages. A very boring man, and that’s sort of fine, but the way they gloss over the auld issues around the politics of the owners in one paragraph in the middle’s a cop-out.

Don’t even think they need to have a big debate about that every time, but given the focus of the World Cup the Guardian should do better than that sort of puff piece from a fawning fanboy journo, imho.

Sort of nice to hear from his wife, but overall its such a bad, dull, nothing piece.

Are there any long term caretaker managers who’ve been given the job permanently and not immediately turned to absolute shit.
