Don't forget we have Penaldez (Bruno) and I must admit I was impressed with Maguire's penalty against Italy. Wonder if he got billed for the camera he took out.

Mmmm hard to decipher if
(a) You think it will be a sell out
(b) The club sent everybody in the local area a ticket on the off chance that you might turn up for the game

Well whatever it will be nice to see people back in the grounds be it limited or full capacity.

It's a preseason friendly.

The club have been told up to 8,200 home fans can attend, and no away fans.

Well if any away fans did travel then I guess they would end up being deported like these goats

If they want footballers to keep out of politics, politicians also need to stop with this shit.

UK Government should overrule Welsh FA and create Great Britain team says Conservative editor


He also called for a united British Super League to replace the separate Welsh, Scottish and English premier leagues.“This would fit well with other measures reportedly being considered by the Government, such as trying to create a ‘British Super League’ by allowing top-flight Scottish teams to join their Welsh counterparts in the Premier League and the FA Cup,” he said.

Which of you lot is missing a 31 year old player in the Greater Manchester area then?

This is a strange one. He was arrested by GMP, but then Everton put out a statement saying he was one of their 1st team players. I assume the individual must play for Everton (geographically covered by Merseyside Police) but live in GMPs area.

Would you live in Merseyside :lol: Cant be that good of a player or well known as most seem to live in Cheshire. I am sure his name will be released soon.

That explains why it took me a while to find out then. I only ever use Twitter to find out if there's an ISP outage etc as people seem to complain on there before the support staff even know there's an issue.

I guess you could, but as I understand it, no UK media publication has made the name public yet. I suspect the accused's solicitor will be watching very closely for anything that prejudices their client's right to a fair trial. The Irish Mirror says he was arrested Friday.

And arrested isn't guilty yet. It just makes it easier to take statements. Has he been charged?

Interesting one, the name is easy to find, because British law isn't International law, but should we respect this British law, because, as you say it attempts to protects people who have not been charged, never mind found guilty of a terrible crime.

For me, it's a matter of personal choice. If people want the name, they'll find it.

It's unlikely any of us would ever see any consequences of naming the guy, but as a UK resident, I personally am holding off naming the player until the Police or UK media name him.

According to one report I read he has been arrested but released on bail pending investigation. Normally the media won't release a name until charges laid as then it is a public record unless the court issues a media ban. As for naming him on a website such as this then I don't see a problem as this is not a media outlet.

I agree. It's my personal choice not to.

Whether it's acceptable for here, that's not my problem.

Personally I don't think news of someone being arrested for something like this should even be released until they're found guilty. Regardless of whether he's innocent or not now the mud will stick for the rest of his life much like Michael Jackson.

And that is definitely a very good point. Though sometimes, the name being released when they're charged can help other victims come forward. But there has to be a line drawn somewhere, and it definitely shouldn't be before charges are brought.

But in the age of the internet and social media, once the name is out there outside of the UK, it's impossible to stop with one of those super-injunctions, which in themselves makes people wonder what the person has to hide. The accused can't win either way.

And I can understand Everton has to be seen to be doing something by suspending him.

On the same day they release that kit there's rumours City are prepared to offer players plus cash for Kane with Sterling, Sliva, Jesus or Mahrez mentioned. Which of them would seriously consider moving to Spurs to be on less money, have less chance of winning anything and wear that kit?

Sancho deal confirmed:

https://www.theguardian.com/football...-from-dortmund

Apparently the Verane deal is on the verge of collapse because United want to pay $40 rather than $50m. I don't really understand why they waste so much time doing this, squabbling over what is a relatively small percentage of a transfer fee. We could have got Sancho last year for exactly the same reason.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side handed wake-up call ahead of new season.

FFS Sky it was a friendly. Now lets see who wasn't playing. Neither DeGea or Henderson in goal. No Luke Shaw, Pogba, Maguire, Fernandez, Rashford, Sancho, Lindelof, Bailly, Fred, James, McTominay, Van Der Bench Warmer, Cavani & Martial.
Anyway OGS won't be that bothered seeing he has just signed a new 3 year contract with the option for another year and the reported 25 million will feed his kids for a couple of weeks.

As a Spurs fan, I don't see us getting anyone in - this is ridiculous but nothing new to us unfortunately. Glad Son decided to sign a new contract (for some bizarre reason, he really loves us!)

That new away kit - are we getting ready for some Space League now the billionaires are exploring space? Might be our only chance to win a trophy, some sort of intergalactic premier league (with just us in it to make sure we actually win it, and even then we will still somehow come second).

You've just signed a spanish winger and got rid of Lamela so that's all of the players you signed with the Bale money gone. Time to sell Kane and spaff that money up the wall too.

Supposed to give the manager a look at the fringe players to see if kept or sold, gets fitness levels up, cheaper tickets for the less fortunate so they can attend a game and producing 3 cracking goals like tonights friendly.
