    yep.
    he's officially a Leicester player, but is not allowed to play for us till January. Which sucks since we sold Drinkwater and can't replace him till Jan

    That moment when you lose 4-0, transfer to the winning team and then lose 5-0.

    The Ox effect.

    Would probably have lost too even without that red card. The way we approached the 2nd half was horrific.

    Arsenal back to being title favorites. Amazing display.

    Chelsea next victim.






    3-0 Chelsea win incoming. 100%.

    I'm running out of words for Messi, when I quit football it will be painful. It will leave a big gap with a lot of history.

    Didn't expect a tie vs Atletico, but I'll take it. Don't see us advancing anyway, but it's nice to see we can keep up with them (like we did vs Barcelona a few years back, only to get fisted in the second leg).

    The 'Bentancur effect' is already harming Juventus.

    Really, Allegri said he's going to be one of the biggest surprises in this season's Calcio. But the surprise will be that he is actually playing in Europe.

    I'm not familiar with Bentacur...I'm going to assume he's a future prospect that isn't quite what he's made out to be

    He's 20 and has played less than 5 official games with Juventus... give the guy a break. When Marcelo signed for Real Madrid 10 years ago he was awful for more than a year, but just look how good Marcelo is now.

    Man City and Man Utd have been seriously impressive in the PL so far. Still early days of course but those two looks like the team to beat this season.
