Is this the bit where we do the league predictions so we can laugh at how shit we did in 9 months?

Yeah, I'll wait until we're closer to the start of the season. Can't be as bad as everyone saying Leicester to go down and them winning the league... .

(apparently) Ronaldo wants out of Madrid.

pls

Fuck signing Morata if we can potentially get Ronaldo to play up top. I'd love him to come back to United.
Manchester United

Can see PSG going mental and just offering like €400m to Real for him Some stupid (and similar) figures will come out of China too you'd imagine, but I think Man Utd will be favourites tbh

I'll need to check how I did on last year's predictions first.

I think I might've been one of the only people to suggest Arsenal would actually finish outside the top 4 for once? Or maybe I dreamt that.

>Release clauses are mandated in Spain
>Florentino doesn't like release clauses
>1 Billion release clause

Not that it matters though, I'm sure Ronaldo will have plenty of influence, should the rumors be true.

eh.. Was a pen to Russia there that the ref didnt give. He just played on after the incident and didnt use the video ref. The whole point of the video ref is for that situation and so they don't get them wrong.. dafuq

Two Australians in the premier league this season and every sports publication goes nuts. Barely watched the last half of last season and West Ham are most likely going to be shit again. Gonna be a ripper.

They need a dynamic midfielder to provide service to their many goal scorers . PL experience and has received an England call up (although I had to check and he was crocked so withdrew)

Everton signing that 21 y/o ex Barca player who scored loads at Malaga (I believe) last season for £5m.

They are certainly buying the right sorts of players imo, but inb4 they still falter abit in the Prem

A proposal to scrap 45-minute halves is to be looked at by football's lawmakers to deter time-wasting.

Instead, there could be two periods of 30 minutes with the clock stopped whenever the ball goes out of play.


no

Another proposal would see players not being allowed to follow up and score if a penalty is saved - if the spot-kick "is not successful", play would stop and a goal-kick awarded.


but why?

a new rule allowing players to effectively pass to themselves or dribble the ball when taking a free-kick.


wat

referees can only blow for half-time or full-time when the ball goes out of play


ok there's one I like

Highly rated by Roy Hodgson. A ringing endorsement if there ever was one.

I'm against the 30-minute halves (this ain't rugby bois), I'm for the full-time whistle thing. Other two I'm not really for but i don't mind
