An English birth certificate.

Er, he might be better than Victor Moses? Maybe. On a good day. Which clearly yesterday at Anfield wasn't. Worse than anonymous.

Pissed at Harold Kane. £12.5m of my Fantasy budget spent on him and he can't score against the Geordies, a weakened Chavs (though I guess it's debatable whether having Cahill suspended actually weakened them or helped Conte by forcing him to select a better defender!) or Burnley.... :thumbdown: Time for change, methinks. I may be leading this B.E. league, but I'm getting spanked in more competitive ones, can't afford any passengers...

Speaking of which, "Taxi for de Boer!" Idiots. Huddersfield (h), then Swansea (h), and you're thinking: umm, must get a couple of Palace players into the Fantasy team... right. Idiots. :thumbdown:

More rumours linking us with Tierney (Celtic left-back)... clearly Luke Shaw is still on the 'don't fancy him much' list at Chez Mourinho. :(

Another player that meet the 'home-grown' rule.

Pretty much. A UK birth certificate, parentage, or having been registered with an English, Welsh, Scots or NI club for the last 3 seasons are the requirements for being 'home-grown'.

Yep good call PB - your manger said he set out to make it a bitty game and he suceeded - we were lucky to get the points and you could easily have won.

I do note your club has withdrawn the accusation against Aguero and suspect you'll have one less lying thug of a steward next week ;)

Kane doesn't score in August. I thought that is well documented by now!

I just read that City are offering cash AND Sterling for Sanchez, that would be hilarious.

I didn't realise City had a player named Cash. When did that **** leave LA Galaxy?

Alexis Sanchez: Arsenal reject £50m from Manchester City for Chilean forward.


If Sanchez goes to Man City! :ohmy:

If Lukaku is worth £75 million, City can F R O if they think Sanchez is only worth £50, even if it's the last year of his contract.....

And because Sanchez has played for a British club for the last 3 seasons, he'd be regarded as a 'home-grown' player too.

Don't those 3 years have to be between the ages of 16 and 21?

Not sure. I'll have to re-read the rules again.
