There was a text poll in the telegraph sport paper, words to the effect, if you offered a free ticket to the england hungary game would you go? I think it was roughly 75% said no.

Im going to a mates house, who likes football, so it wouldn't surprise me if he has it on in the background.

If he can get a bit of form going, could be a good signing. I remember him looking pretty good when he first went to sunderland.

Gerrard's goals last night were a bit good. Hope he remembers how to play like that on Sunday.

Happy with Spurs performance, disappointed about the result. But when we should've been 2/3-0 up in the first 20 minutes if it weren't for Hart's wondersaves, guess I can't complain too much :lol:

Score doesn't reflect the game for the reds *facepalm* Horrible Reina mistake and Joe Cole sent off with a 3 match ban, typical shitty start of the season for Liverpool as is the tradition :lol:

I hate Football Manager :(. My Valencia team can't defend for shit, Villa is either injured or underperforming and Zigic is a goal machine one game and a useless twat the next.

I couldn't get into FM2010 after playing 09 to death. Maybe I'll manage to do more with the next one.
