Not a bad World Cup draw. Albania and England both got decent groups :D

Big shock, England normally get such difficult groups...

Anyway, Torres scored today! Yay for him!

Oh god. The season starts in a week. Oh god.

I'm going to have to physically watch Tranmere Rovers again. I'm compelled to even though I just can't be arsed with it at the moment. Sad but True as Metallica would sing.

As shit as we are we're still better than most nations, so it's hardly shocking we get a decent seeding and an easy group. And apart from Spain and Germany all the other big nations (Brazil, Argentina, France, Italy) have been equally embarrassing.

IT'S COMING HOME! IT'S COMING HOME.... its..... coming ... :'(.

Stay stong. This is a state of mind most League 1 fans go through before the start of the season.

You never know, Latics might win a game this season, AND still exist by the end of it.

The best thing the England team has done is be responsible for those two songs being created.

And I include the '66 England team in that.

Aye. We've reached the stage in football where all we hope is for everyone to still exist come May.

Great win for Manchester United last night. 2-1 over a strong Barcelona squad.

Barcelona had six starting players from the Champion's League final.
Manchester United had three.

Or is that just the case in FM?

The players aren't getting paid, so don't want to risk injury as it'd scupper a move somewhere else if the club goes under basically. I can totally see it from their point of view.

Its been a successful tour but Rafael is crocked Hernadez and Valencia are also injured we have cover but its hardly ideal preparation 2 weeks before the start of the new Prem season

De Gaea looks like he needs to put on at least 20 pounds Oh and LEARN TO CATCH THE FUCKIN' BALL !!

Beat Inter Milan 3-0.

City are going to win the League with Dzeko on form.

Plus they had it in the net twice, with Dzeko's being given offside wrongly.

All my mates reckon he's shit and wasn't worth the £27m, but imo he's gonna be a beast this season
