  1. Reports that Burnley are in talks with Vincent Kompany to take over as manager.
  2. The truth. It's already done. Villa officially confirmed the signing yesterday. Reports are that they are going to attempt to sign Bissouma as well.
  3. Milan wrap up the Scudetto. Very comfortable game for Milan. Pioli has done a fantastic job.
  4. That was nail-biting. Great finish to the season at the top and bottom. We owe Brighton big time for gifting us a EL place. Our season ends in thorough embarrassment with yet another piss poor showing from a spineless team with a clueless fraud as manager. We didn't deserve to finish 6th. Worst United side in my lifetime in terms of attitude and commitment. Good riddance to Burnley.
  5. Solskjaer>Rangnick Only Man United could sack Solskjaer and somehow hire an even worse manager. Rangnick is the biggest fraud in football.
  6. PSG have confirmed that Mbappe has extended to 2025. But wait....the saga is not over. LaLiga has announced that they intend to file a complaint against PSG with UEFA, French administrative and tax authorities as well as the relevant bodies of the EU. In their statement they say that they find it to be scandalous that PSG, which last season lost more than €220m after having accumulated losses of €700m in recent seasons (even declaring income from sponsorships of a very dubious amount) and with a wage bill of €650m for this season, can still be allowed to reach an agreement of this financial magnitude. Goes on to criticise the behaviour of Nasser Al-Khelaifi and says that he does not respect nor want to respect the economic rules and represents as great a threat to European football as the Super League.
  7. Lyon have once again shown that they are the gold standard when it comes to women's football in Europe.
  8. Turning out to be pretty one sided with Lyon running away with it. 3-0 up already.
  9. Yep. There's also reports that PSG are in negotiations with Zidane. Leonardo could be out the door as well with reports claiming that Luis Campos is the favourite replace him as sporting director.
  10. There's a number of rumours but coming from poor sources. Yes, one of them was that Mbappe would have a big say in the sporting project. Other reports are claiming a signing bonus ranging from €100-300m in addition to a salary of €50-100m net per year.
  11. Looked like Mbappe to Real Madrid was a foregone conclusion but reports of him deciding to extend his contract with PSG are gathering steam (and from reliable journalists too like Di Marzio and Molina). The financials being reported are eye watering (although those are coming from much less reliable sources).
  12. Yep. According to Opta, this was the 75th time in the PL that Everton have been two or more goals down at half-time. Their record in this scenario - 1 win, 5 draws, 69 losses.
  13. Apparently tonight was the first time in the Premier League era that Everton have come back from being two goals down at half-time to win a game. Great time to do it.
  14. Everton safe. Rorschach can breathe.
  15. Are you referring to those rumours about Messi going to Inter Miami as player and part owner? His agents have denied that there is any agreement place. I expect Messi will see out his contract with PSG (which ends after next season anyway) before deciding whether he goes to the MLS or back to Newell's Old Boys.
  16. Samba was great in the shootout. Made up for his poor goalkeeping which gifted Sheffield United two goals (Sander Berge in the 1st leg and Fleck in the 2nd leg).
  17. Don't forget about Leicester. They've had a bit of a disaster this season too but will likely be competing once again those EL places at least.
  18. There's no point comparing it to pre season expectations given that Arsenal were coming off a season where the team underperformed and finished 8th again so there was a lot of pessimism around the club. The fact of the matter is that Arsenal were in a commanding position to finish 4th but now need Norwich to do them a favour when they really should have had top 4 wrapped up with a game or two to spare. So the season could still end up being a successful one depending on the final day results or end up being a decent enough if not ultimately disappointing season given the position that was squandered.
  19. I wouldn't call it a successful season for Arsenal. It was decent but at the end of the day they were in the drivers seat for 4th place and bottled it in the home stretch. Soon to be 6 straight seasons failing to qualify for the CL unless Spurs pull a Spurs against the worst side in the league. I wouldn't put any stock at all into BBC's transfer gossip section. Unless one of their football journalists puts his name to a transfer report, i wouldn't consider the report to be reliable at all. Besides, this Mourinho rumour looks to be originating from the Spanish tabloids.
  20. Mbappe is more versatile though. He's class anywhere across the front 3 positions. In the last few seasons he's played primarily at either CF or LW but he's class on the RW as well as he showed when he played for Monaco, the first couple of seasons at PSG and France's WC win.
