Now there's a man who would have the balls to tell Levy what's what!! Loved him as a player, but as a manger it's a big no thank you. Looks like it's going to be Italians from here thanks to Paratici, talking of which I am loving the Azzurri in the Euros....Forza Italia!

I don't think you have to worry about Gigi, as soon as he gets an answer he doesn't like (which is sure to be in the first month with Levy) he'll be on his bike.

Why are Spurs having such a hard time getting someone to take the job? Is it perhaps because they are basically broke paying for this new stadium and are probably selling their best player this summer?

Looking at the Boxing Day and New Year's fixtures, the PL has once again missed an opportunity to reduce the distance travelled by fans on dates where public transport is usually much-reduced....

Why can't these dates become the traditional dates for derby matches or playing other teams closer to home to make it a little easier for travelling fans?

But then the FA, PL and EFL aren't there for the fans, are they?

At least all the PL fixtures on those dates are 3pm kick offs so it means not being stuck in a shithole like London overnight because the last train home has already left. There again the networks haven't decided what time the actual kick offs will be as weekend games are all showing 3pm kick offs and midweek games as 7.45pm. Also Boxing Day is on a Sunday so probably even less options for public transport.

Bring back the football specials

Yup.. The current system limits public transport options for travel to non-derby games.

And that's before tv has picked their 12:15, 14:00, 16:00, 18:00 and 20:00 kickoffs....

I thought they did that normally?

Unfortunately, very difficult for us being the only decent team in the whole South of England.

We usually get Palace though to be fair, West Ham this time so let’s hope I can get back for Xmas and take Dad.

So seems like Blue Scouse don't want Rafa so would he be a good fit at Spurs? Shame they didn't build the cheese shop as some might think Rafa would have been more suitable to managing that.
Proof that Covid affects brain cells as Atletico want 30 million for Trippier.
Nice to see our Scottish cousins in London obeying the pandemic rules and singing songs about how much they love England.
I wonder how many English fans will take note of the letter written to them by the FA asking them to behave and not boo the Scottish National Anthem or the taking of the knee. Perhaps the person that signed the letter was previously employed as a cat herder.

Hey pal, congrats on the league win. Well deserved. Can’t say the same for last season

I see this website is still horribly non-user friendly. Think it was coded and built by people who’ve never had to use it.
