Re: The 2019-2020 Football Thread

Still obsessed with Spurs I see. You should be celebrating winning a cup not looking up the league at us all the time and trying to think of disparaging posts. Oh well once a Gooner.

Re: Cost of living in southern ontario

The challenge now is the schedule.

Two back to back seasons and then an International tournament plus catching up on qualifiers for the World Cup the year after.
