apparently with his goals last night, dzeko is now the first player to score 50 league goals in 3 of the big 5 leagues.
While that's nice, it's not really anything outstanding. Plenty of players could do that easily if they were to just move leagues.

Didn't even remember that Dzeko was at Wolfsburg. First memory of him was when City were running around with Aguero, Tevez, Jovetic, Dzeko, Balotelli and Negredo. (I'm sure at one point 4 or 5 of those 6 were in the same squad for 1 or 2 seasons.)

Dzeko was great at Wolfsburg! I actually used to watch the Bundesliga back then, him and Grafite was an unbelievable partnership.

Davide Astori has passed away suddenly at 31. Just tragic, just became a father too.

Reading that he passed away in his sleep while in the hotel room with his team mates preparing for todays game. It's tragic, and it's a monumental understatement to say how traumatic it must be for his team mates in the hotel, or if he was sharing a room with one of them.

Fiorentina confirmed that Marco Sportiello (the GK) was the last person to see him alive. You'd have to be a heartless wanker not to feel for him in circumstances like that.

martin glenn of the fa has been on a mad one today.

http://www.skysports.com/football/n...y-fa-chief-martin-glenn-over-political-symbol

We have re-written Law 4 of the game so that things like a poppy are okay but things that are going to be highly divisive, and that could be strong religious symbols, it could be the Star of David, it could the hammer and sickle, it could be a swastika, anything like Robert Mugabe on your shirt, these are the things we don't want.

"And, to be honest, and to be very clear, Pep Guardiola's yellow ribbon is a political symbol, it's a symbol of Catalan independence, and I can tell you there are many more Spaniards, non-Catalans, who are p****d off by it.

"All we are doing is even-handedly applying the laws of the game. Poppies are not political symbols, that yellow ribbon is. Where do you draw the line - should we have someone with a UKIP badge, someone with an ISIS badge?

"That's why you have to be pretty tough that local, regional, national party organisations cannot use football shirts to represent them.'

Things like the yellow ribbon don't belong in football. By all means go and make a political protest but don't use football as a vehicle to do that, especially when you are a spokesman for Qatar 2022 and employed by those who jailed the likes of Mohamed Al-Roken for 10 years when speaking out against human rights abuse in Abu Dhabi.

Isn’t that disease detected at birth?
Depends. I lost a friend at 36 to a congenital heart disease which sees men absorb cholesterol at 10 times the normal rate. It isn't an issue when you are a child and only becomes an issue usually around mid to late twenties.

Poppies are fair enough on the Remembrance weekend. We should honour those that fought to preserve our freedom.
Something that I think is still highly valued withing the United Kingdom.

Interesting, didn’t know that, but if his cholesterol was absorbing that quickly you’d think the club doctor would’ve noticed, these guys are always saving medical checks.
