Pista: Cyrene Valantion:

Southgate continues to stick with Maguire against all reason. He did a press conference this week which was basically 'I'm picking him for the World Cup so you'd better get behind him so he doesn't suck'.

I really don't understand Southgate. He's by no means a bad manager, but Maguire even struggles to get into the Manc team so how on earth he gets into the national team is a massive mystery.


When he took over the main thing he built that England had been lacking was a sense of team unity, he got the players behaving as a group working together rather than the allegedly very cliquey setup they had before.

I suspect he's now terrified that if he takes certain players out he'll lose all that. (Though from the outside it seems a lot of the team unity is down to Harry Kane not putting up with anyones crap).

Completely missed predicting the Norf Lahndahn derby because I forgot that actual football was back.

Oh, and during the week, the MIGHTY Oxford United FC changed from Thai ownership to Indonesian ownership. Oh and they've released a third kit that doesn't have a shirt sponsor, so it looks like a pretty classy polo shirt:

farking Man City. Impossible to compete with that now that Liverpool have collapsed in exhaustion. FFP is a joke. One horse league for years into the future.

If Jesus had scored there it would have been sensational.
That ball was almost glued to his foot

HugeMistake: Morning all. Once again I was up hours ago but completely forgot to put the game on. It sounds like I missed a pretty good first half.


I'm recording the game, was about to go up and watch and checked the BBC New front page. Damn it BBC keep the score off the headline if you are posting to News not Sport

Late, high, studs up, nowhere near the ball. Nailed on red card. I don't know what the NBC guy is seeing.

Cyrene Valantion: Spurs throwing in the towel with those changes, just trying to keep the score down.


When down a man and 2 goals, you may as well insure some people don't get hurt.

Especially ahead of the Frankfurt game on Tuesday


yarp...and amazingly, I got a perfect out of that, complete with bonus points.

As is traditional, whenever I have a dumpster fire set of predictions, my fantasy league team does well. I brought in Trossard this week.

Deathbymeteor: Pool needs to fix this ongoing issue of "Poor opening 30 minutes".  It's becoming damn near unacceptable.


It's beyond unacceptable. It's like they're not prepared to play and that's on everyone: players, coaches, and Klopp.

It's not so much that. That was a cracking goal. (Grrrrrrr)
It's that Thiago Silva was still on the pitch to set up the first.


I don't know how that wasn't a red card.

I am not sure Haaland would fit Gregg Berhalter's system


US fans are insufferable enough. The last thing they need is an actual farking good team. At least the women are going to get a reality check in the very near future, although I never run into supporters IRL now that I'm not behind a bar.
