Anyone else trying to get a football fix watching the Confederation cup? Anyone else wishing they hadn't bothered?

You know it must be a serious competition when they cancel Coronation St & Emmerdale Farm for it.

Maybe they're following our old 'boring, boring Arsenal' ways. If you don't concede, you can win by scoring only one goal.

Worst attempt yet.

I hope we do buy Kane. I hope we buy him for £200m. And then send him out on loan to Grasshoppers or Lincoln. Just because we can.

We don't need him anyway. We've got Lingard.
