So glad Lille mauled PSG 5-1 this morning after the commentator mentioned about 15 times how PSG only needed a draw to win the league lol.

Also, Mbappe scored 2 goals ruled out for offside and after the second he looked into the camera and shrugged as if to say he’s a great footballer. Pity that he plays in the biggest banter league in world football.

it's frightening how regular this is becoming.
it's only getting called out more because these wankers are on social media now so can get pulled up for it and the issue is being dealt with more seriously with actual consequences these days, i'm sure racism would have been far worse even 10 years ago, forget about 20+ years before that it would have just been a regular everyday occurance.
So Barton was pissed off at the Barnsley manager for “getting involved” when he was arguing the sending off with the refs. In the tunnel after the game he’s head butted him & grabbed him by the throat
barton is such a loose unit, if he didn't become a professional soccer player he would have been in and out of jail no doubt.

i think i meant moreso that im surprised it's still so prevalent in the days of everyone filming everything. knowing that your little ditty about jews or muslims or black people could be seen by the world, but still doing it.

United have won just 3 of their last 8, those 3 wins were 2 laboured and probably undeserved wins against Watford and West Ham, plus a game against PSG they should have lost but won on opposition errors which rarely happen in 3s.

Ole is drunk at the wheel.

United need a manager who can bring in youth the way Fergie did, and stay at the club for a number of years and return it to the culture it had before. Obviously they have cash to spend also but their real strength under Ferguson was combining home grown talent with big signings. This Ajax manager looks the real deal (I know it’s early days) and has built an exciting team based on youth. That’s the United of old all over

Has he built it though? He had Frankie de Jong and De Ligt already there. Dusan Tadic has been the difference maker from last year with 32 goals in 49 games in all comps. As has Daley Blind.. neither are youth.
