I think something happened to set him off. He was silently stood clapping their goal from the penalty on the touchline, then suddenly enraged. I feel someone must've done something for that kind of change in reaction.

He's a hot-headed little cock at the best of times. Someone could have looked at him in a funny way and he'd likely have gone mad. Gneville was completely unsurprised by it.

It was rough seeing that Bale goal go in.

I mean, I'm happy for him. But I wanted to be happy for him for shit he did for us.

apparently Varane made a gesture at him which sounds plausible to me as Varane seems a bit of a prick (like most of the Real team do really). Still It's not surprising, Simeone's always had an aggressive streak.

So he'll drop 30 million on Luke Shaw and everything will be fine right? Right?

Confirmed. Pochettino has dumped Southampton and joined Spurs.
Wonder if he'll bother to learn how to speak English now.

With the number of players from various nationalities struggled to settle at Spurs it's an interesting appointment regarding languages.

5 year deal as well.

Levy isn't exactly known for patience.

Lalana and Shaw won't go to Spurs when they can both likely get a Champions League team.

Schniederlan to replace Sandro wouldn't be a bad shout though.



Looked at results of mine and my Dadas annual pre season predictions last night. Got none of the Premiership bottom 3 right and both had Wigan to win the Championship.

also both thought with our hearts instead of our heads and both tipped Brentford beating Wolves to the title.

Bugger!

He knew the whole time, he just wasn't confident because of being very wary of the twisting of our media. Months and months ago I remember Kammy saying on Soccer Saturday he'd had a chat with him off camera and he spoke English very well.

But yeah, it is confirmed he will be speaking English from now.

That paragon of British truth, The Star, has us linked with Lallana, even going as far to say he's already sure he's moving in the summer.

Southampton don't wanna sell to be fair so £25 million at least for him.

The papers will link Spurs with all the Saints players potentially on the move now.

Despite apparently having a £130 million pound loss Cardiff have made their fourth signing for next season already.

Adam Le Fondre from Reading joins Federico Macheda up front for next season.

Just saw that.

Pretty sure it's his son (sons?) who've been mostly involved with United though so shouldn't change too much.
