    The England World Cup Thread

    I came in this thread simply to post something along the same lines. Gary Taphouse (sky commentator) has retweeted one guy who seems to be obsessed with the captaincy issue: https://twitter.com/triggs35/status/1010955536941158400?s=21...

    New Stadium Details And Discussions

    Think they had Bergkamp's testimonial which was essentially a friendly between the first team and a Bergkamp XI - we can't do that due to the season already starting by the time we'll be holding the test event(s).

    New Stadium Details And Discussions

    The problem for that is the time of year - bang in the school summer holidays. Lots of adults (particularly Dads) would snap up the tickets (presuming they'll be cheap) and subsequently realise they're in the Canary Islands that weekend or have got some other plans already with the whole family...

    What our opponents' fans are saying about us 17/18

    Took a while to find the first post-England brace example of the expected Manc attitude of, "He needs to move to a bigger club", but I found it.

    Spurs join hunt for James Maddison

    Think one of those tweets specifically said he hates Spurs as well. From what I've heard (albeit from an Ipswich fan) he's got a reputation for being a knob off the pitch, so not sure he'd fit in with the 'no dickheads' policy that Eric Dier recently talked about.

    New Stadium Details And Discussions

    Spurs Ladies is exactly what I was thinking - would be a great way for the club to boost interest in the ladies team as I'm sure lots of folk who aren't usually interested in them would be keen to access the test event. I'm also quite sure once the TV fixtures are announced the 2/3/4th events...

    What our opponents' fans are saying about us 17/18

    It does make me chuckle to see how much it touches a nerve when you liken the present-day City fans to their rivals from across Manchester. What is funniest is how when they try to explain how they're still different and somehow superior to the stereotypical Man Utd fans they just end up...

    Player Jack Grealish

    This is all I’ll say about it here as it’s the wrong thread for it, but I’d argue the usual media cycle of hype, nostalgia (66 and all that) and then scapegoating has played as big a part in the general apathy felt towards England by many fans as anything that’s happened (or hasn’t happened) on...

    Player Jack Grealish

    Thats just the feeling of some posters on here, who probably had very similar views on Dele Alli when we signed him. Poch might well see it differently and be giving the kid reason to believe he'll get plenty of minutes across both domestic and European competition. If we have another good year...

    The managerial merry go round discussion

    Can see Zidane taking a lot more than just a year and basically waiting for either Juve or PSG to come calling. If he were to retire with 3 Champions Leagues in 3 seasons thats a hell of a legacy in management.

    Champions League 2017-18

    Gutting for Salah. Could even rule him out of Russia. I think that injury has broken Twitter!

    Let's All Laugh At... Let's all laugh at Liverpool thread

    Seen lots of people (mostly Liverpool fans) saying this - would like one of them to post any quotes from Kane himself or any other evidence of this 'hissy fit'. Truth is that some of Liverpool's players, their weirdly insular fans, and some of the press pack who are known to write bullshit made...

    Let's All Laugh At... Let's all laugh at Liverpool thread

    According to the Liverpool Echo, Henderson has been robbed of the chance to become only the 2nd person ever to captain a European Cup winning team and a World Cup winning team in the same year. Not getting ahead of themselves are they.

    Even Football 365 is going full Mark Lawrenson and rewriting history to present Liverpool as all-conquering. http://www.football365.com/news/unai-emery-statistics-to-worry-and-encourage-arsenal According to Football 365, soon-to-be Arsenal manager Unai Emery has only ever beaten one English...
