    Football: Remain in Europe

    No chance: as I know us, we are gonna raise Young, Smalling and Jones. Not sure what Martial & Pereira are gonna do considering their small playing time. Should Mourinho stay, I'm not even sure they'll trigger their one year extension. Shaw has to renew but again I have doubts. As for the others, I care little. Considering how crucial DDG has been for us in recent years we are definitely gonna offer him a new contract, it would be so dumb to see him leave for free. Especially when looking how much goalkeepers cost nowadays...

    What a hell of a game Spurs v Barça was. Weird to think that Spurs might be on their road to EL at the moment. Also awkward to figure that they could have conceded 6 yesterday, with Messi hitting the post twice... on similar situations for what it matters. Over the last seasons, Spurs were a reference when it comes to defensive abilities, but now they appear to concede much more chances. Vertonghen is still one of the very best CB in the league, but Alder appears to decline, Walker departed, and albeit they stil have plenty of quality FBs, Lloris sometimes has his moments of idiocy (where was he going on that Coutinho goal ? u_u) But in total fairness, playing Barcelona without Dembele, Eriksen and Dele, was tough. Especially in a stadium which is not totally theirs. An issue is that this Wembley situation is gonna last for a few months again.

    Hard night for Marseille fans, as they trip in Lyon ends up in a 4-2 win in favor of the hosts. Fair play to Lyon, their squad is just so loathed with talents. One can expect many of them to land in PL someday. Fekir, Traore, Aouar, Ndombele, would all deserve a top 6 PL squad. Considering our need for a RW, I'd sign Traore in a heartbeat. No doubt he'd be better than Lingard /Mata there.

    Yup, good overall game from the team, which we hadn't been exactly used to. Usually we pull on a good half /50min only to bend ourselves in our 15 yards for the rest of the game. For once, we were quite positive and aggressive in our play for more than an hour of football, which is great. Lukaku and Rashford are probably the only negative points from tonight. While the former did make good runs, created plenty of spaces and worked hard for the team, the latter just couldn't make any decision right. But that's not the 1st time we are disappointed from Rashford when playing RW. We desesperately need someone at RW, and he's only short term "solution". And it has to be said: Chris Smalling is having a good season start. Albeit he only shown up against weak /average teams so far. Glad to see Dalot making such a debut. Shaw and Lindelof solid too.

    Football: Sarri state of affairs

    Yup, and the cherry on the cake is that Welbeck still thought the funniest thing to do after robbing such an equaliser was to joyfully celebrate it. Not sure if the guy even has half a brain. Concerning England in general, I would like to point out: Where are the goddamn box-to-box in this team ? It's ironical because at some point, England managers were concerned because they could not play all of Scholes, Lampard, and Gerrard in their team. Despite all of them being world class, they simply could not play together. Now it looks like this kind of player has disappeared. A midfield of Henderson, Dele and Lingard looks well-balanced on paper, but, as @Philokles said, offer very little control /composure. Which brings me to ask: what are the likes of Barkley, Oxlade, Winks.. doing with themselves ? Don't you think they are the box-to-box midfielders that England definitely lack ?

    Better Call Saul -- Season 4 Better Get Emmy

    At some point, I felt like this show was painfully divided into 2 storylines: the Mike one and the Jimmy one. Now, it appears that there are actually at least 3 independent plots: Mike, Jimmy and Nacho/Gus. I am aware they are not totally independent, as there are ties between Mike, Gus and Nacho. But still, my feeling is that Jimmy & Kim do not evolve in the same show than Gus, Mike and others. I am not saying there are 2 shows in one, but 2 kind of environment are perceptible. Which is a concern, considering we are getting near BCS's end (we are season 4, BB had 6 seasons, may a spin-off have more season than the main show?). IMHO, things should be way more shaped and coherent in BCS plot.

    I fear yesterday's defeat is gonna have more impact on Utd mood that, say, your 5-0 defeat with 10 men at City had. Not only did we lost by a 3 goals margin at home, but our players actually shew good behaviors and a fine tactical shape overall. Individual defensive mistakes cost us.

    Fred was one of the very few sunrays on United side today. Luke Shaw also had a decent game. Every other player was mediocre, especially Pogba whom I suspect to not totally be match fit. Same for Lukaku. They are not in their season yet. Bailly is an awesome dude but today wasn't his day. 3 goals is a hard cost to pay for a bad day, a pity that Lindelof isn't yet abe to take things in control when this kinda situations happen. We miss Matic & Valencia, also.

    Man, this sounds just so fucking familiar. Did those players actually have holidays ? I feel like there was no break between the lost FA Cup final and now lol. If any positive thing has to be pointed out: Andreas Pereira, Luke Shaw and Eric Bailly all look sharp and solid so far. This statement has to be highlighted because it probably won't be often repeated this season lol.

    As much as you were probably quite unhappy with Lyon's broken fax machine. :> (on a serious note, what happened with that Fekir transfer ? Were those pictures of him in a Pool shirt fanmade or..?)
  12. If I recall, the Rains of Castamere song appears in ASOS. I was just wandering who decided that it shall be sung this way and not another ? Was the tune solely maked by Game of Thrones composer Ramin Djawadi, or did GRRM have his word on it ? Really, it may be only a detail, but I find it interesting... The same question could actually be asked about any song that appears in both books and show, e.g the Bear & Maiden fair song. PS: If this topic doesn't have its place here (or doesn't deserve to exist at all u_u), feel free to clearly tell me it, rather than deleting it…

    Well, Dalot's gonna be a good back-up /contender for Valencia's job, and Fred's the exact piece we were needing to build our 3-man midifielder: a dynamic left-footed box-to-box midfielder. Plus, we sold Blind. (Cared so little about the dude that I Don't event know how much we got for him) On the dark side of the board, we gave Marouane Fellaini a new contract, and we are still lacking wingers. Not to mention Ashley Young is still presumably our starting LB. So, could be better. But could be worse.

    The Final & 3rd Place - FRA v. CRO / BEL v. ENG

    As for the Golden Glove, today will tell us if Subasic deserves it more than Lloris, which I doubt so. Lloris was instrumental for France from the very beginning of the tournament, until the KO matches. Otherwise, it turns out that if France win today (the most likely result IMO), that will be a CL+WC double for Raphael Varane. Are we gonna have a defender on the Ballon d'Or podium for the first time since Cannavaro in 2006 ? Having said that, depending on what happens today, Modric could also genuinely win the Ballon d'Or, which would make him the first ever Croatian player to do it.

    The Final & 3rd Place - FRA v. CRO / BEL v. ENG

    Is Harry Kane the most Under-performing top-scorer in WCs recent history ? Dude has almost disappeared for the whole Knock-out stage, and still he's gonna grab the Golden boot award. Massive disappointment.
