I don't even know who to #****Out any more.


At the moment it looks like it'll be #NewcastleOut of the PL. 

Didn't even watch today's game, just waited until 4 and watched Paris instead.
Just depressing watching a team that know they can't really compete, managed by a manager who knows that they can't compete, while the owner sits in the stand and laughs when the fans chant for him to leave.

He's completely aware that the club could be run better and needs more but he's absolutely fine with leaving it hamstrung until someone meets his valuation.

In all honesty there's little point in watching us this season, we're not going to play entertaining football and it's unlikely we'll get many positive results. Would rather watch an entertaining team (i.e. City, PSG, Chelsea etc.) and then the Newcastle highlights (if there are any) until the club puts together something worth watching. 

Liverpool vs Chelsea better be decent after watching the shitshow that is Newcastle United

you were doing so well until here

He had very little actual impact against England and was invisible against France in the final. If Özil had a similar performance he’d get torn to shreds, Modric got nothing though.

He’s obviously world class but he just doesn’t perform to the same individual level as Ronaldo and it’s silly to suggest he should win the award.
Literally a goal that Robben/Messi score weekly and not even Salah’s best, never mind the best in an entire year.

The World XI looks like a pisstske, especially with neither Salah or Courtois being in it but then featuring elsewhere.

Modric winning yet another ‘Best’ award after the WC and UEFA awards is ridiculous considering he really shouldn’t have won either and is just on a hype train.

Only things they actually got right were the coach and young player awards.

The overall best player was so fucked that Mbappe actually received more votes than Messi, which regardless of how much I like him, is fucked.

first proper team they play lel

Nice of you to ignore the Trophee des Champions where they beat Monaco 4-0
Quote by Trowzaa I mean it's also English bias because we're in England and English people don't support PSG

Liverpool bias and desperation to mention them in literally any game, regardless of whether it's relevant. 

Fed up of all these twats bumming Klopp's Liverpool when they've won nothing at all under him, meanwhile Mourinho's Utd have won domestic and European titles and they get shit all day long.

It's honestly draining when you turn on a match and hear a Scouse accent, realising that you're going to be stuck with the outdated bile they all spout when it's clear they've not watched a single foreign team (outside of them playing English teams in the CL) in the last decade. Carragher is the only decent one and even then you can see his true colours the second he gets baited.
Fuck Klopp, fuck that ref, fuck Neymar, fuck the bias in English football, fuck Liverpool.

Should have put a clause in Neymar's contract that if he plays 60+ mins and they team doesn't win then he loses 75% of his salary for that week. If he wants to be in the same rank as Messi and Ronaldo then he needs to show up cause they do every single game and he doesn't.

He's going to be in Mbappe's shadow at this rate (if he isn't already)
Would love it if they just ban anyone over 50 from punditry, can’t stand the Liverpool bias
Wouldn’t even mind the internationals if Sky hadn’t completely monopolised the Nations League thing so that it isn’t possible to watch unless you pay £40 a month.

It actually means I get to see even less football than when it used to be pointless friendlies
Imagine your group chat banter being so shit than you have to quit your job and move to Norway

What a shite draw that'd be Bayern/Napoli/Liverpool might be fun, that's about it. Hopefully it's better than that

Group A in that looks like it could be decent too tbf
Quote by sam b
the fuck are Stoke doing

What red and white striped teams do, get relegated.
The defence and wings need sorting so bad. 

It's almost as if Jose spent an entire summer telling the board this and then they ignored him. 
Should be forced to play Sissoko for 90 minutes in 3 games, would be more of a punishment
Quote by Cadj
The NBC stream has shown Salah's goal with an offside line about 5 times now despite the goal being absolutely clearly onside.

Best bit is when they show the line across the defence even though the ball is about 6 foot ahead of everyone so he could be well ahead of them and still comfortably onside.

Declan Rice is giving it a really good go for worst player of the season, bringing all his momentum in from last season. He's truly awful.

Anderson looks a bit lightweight too so far but it's still early days.

buying for £20m isnt a loan m8

Thought Trouser's comment was from this page
Joe Bryan's passed a medical, taken pictures with the shirt and signed his contract at Villa and then sped off down to London to join Fulham instead with his agent saying the contract doesn't stand
We can't loan any more players from English clubs so anyone linking us with that sort of thing is bullshitting
Quote by Death_switch
Would’ve been interesting to see a cash + Courtois offer. Piss off Real and force Courtois to lose face if he didn’t accept the move.

If he wants to go to live in Madrid so badly and still loves Atletico so much then he'd have to accept or admit that he just wants the Real move
Surprised Chelsea haven’t made a serious move for Oblak. I’d assume they put out feelers and realised it was impossible
Quote by Acϵ♠
if juventus never had to play against real again i would be okay with that

You'll have Ronaldo soon though
Nkunku is going to be mad good this season
Doesn't feel like the Community Shield is tomorrow, strange that the league is so close already
Bordeaux had announced they had reached a deal with Roma and that Malcolm would travel for a medical.

Roma announced they were signing him and that he was on his way.

Barca made an offer as he was travelling to the airport in Bordeaux.

Bordeaux rang Roma and told them the deal was off unless they matched Barca’s offer

Roma matched Barca’s offer and reached a second agreement with Bordeaux the next day.

Barca offered double the wages that Roma were offering so Malcolm forces a transfer to them.

Roma be mad at Bordeaux, Barca and Malcolm and decide to figure out who they can sue for it
3 Richarlisons or 1 Mbappe.

Tough decision there
Surely Puel will be the first sacked? He’s lost Mahrez so that’ll hamstring him and they’ve supposedly been one game away from sacking him multiple times. The owners sacked Ranieri after he won the league so they’ve got previous in that sort of thing too.

Can see them having a slow start and booting him pretty quick.
Think the fantasy football thing is up and running already btw

It is really hard when it's been a decade of this ownership. 

Loads of other teams have had shit owners but generally it all falls apart quickly enough and they fuck off (See AC Milan etc.), rare that they have to sit through 10 years that looks like it could go on for another 10 without anything changing.

It makes us awful to follow too because despite the emotional attachment there's no progress, no ambition, no entertainment. Just a constant stagnation and determination to stamp out any form of hope for anything better. I don't even follow our transfer rumours now because even if we attempt to sign someone and actually achieve it then it'll be some third rate cast-off from a relegation team or a lucky hand-out on loan from a big club that we'll never pay the going rate for if they turn out to be decent.

I'm barely even excited to see us again this season because I know it'll be Rafa trying his best to stop us losing/conceding whilst working with a patchwork squad, and then at the end of it we'll finish somewhere in the bottom half, having gone out of both cups early on, before Benitez says that unfortunately he feels it's time for him to move on.
Fucking hell

'European Premier League'
'His greatest asset is his powerful right leg'
'Rooney has scored more than 200 career goals with his right leg'
'Unleashing his heavy shot'
'Finessing shots'
'Slight stature' (just a lol cause it's Rooney)
I took half a shift as holiday so I could watch it and it's all I've looked forward to all day
France, parce que Mbappe est le meilleur joueur en tout du monde, et aussi parce qu'il agaçait Megano28, le plus grande admirateur de Croatia.
Quote by megano28
Because in terms of Media coverage, the Croatians weren't thinking about what kit they'd wear in the final after progressing to the round of 16

Thank fuck you're a Croatian in Croatia reading and watching all the Croatian media so you can say this.

Also, how dare a country be excited, everyone should know their place and the finals should only ever be Germany/Spain/Argentina/Brazil. If anyone else ever dares to advance they should immediately cede their place to one of those four and hang their heads in shame.

Germany had to beat Mexico/South Korea/Sweden and instead managed to finish bottom of their group.
Argentina scraped through their group and fell at the first hurdle.
Spain scraped through their group and then lost to the lowest ranked team in the competition
Portugal did similar and then fell at the first hurdle.

Was England meant to petition FIFA and demand that we play all the 'good' teams that went out?

We could only play what we were drawn against and we did well against them, unlike those mentioned above, as it stands this world cup may still be our second greatest result ever and our greatest in 52 years. 

If delusion is celebrating that then that's fine. No-one is under the impression that we did beat the aforementioned teams or teams of similar quality, but as it is we did do better than all of them and that's nothing to be ashamed of.
Why's no-one said anything about Croatia's draw?

They had Denmark and then Russia (the lowest rated team), went to penalties against both and then scraped past England via the virtue of extra-time for the third game running, hardly the groundbreaking run people are somehow now making it out to be...
Shaqiri to Liverpool
Ritchie to Stoke
Townsend to Newcastle
Antonio to Palace
Anderson to West Ham

Dat chain.
Saw him linked to Fenerbahce and thought we may as well try to take him on loan.

We need someone in his position, he knows the club, and given time under Rafa might even perform in away games.
Can't really see why wouldn't at least see if it could happen, only thing is if bigger clubs that play in Europe come in for him from abroad.
Something something le foot c'est retourner la maison
