    Meh I have a Robinho jersey and I don't feel the need to burn it.
    The one, the only CW Black
    Code:
    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    Might feel differently if he went to play for ManUre tho, I bet.

    It's not the leaving (no issues with Vieira, Petit, Overmars, Cesc or Terence for instance), it's who they leave for. Applies to managers too.

    One year my fanstasy team's name was George Graham's Dead To Me.
    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
    - Barney Ronay on Mario Balotelli

    Yeah but he bad-mouthed the club and said the fans were **** when he left, so it wasn't a very classy exit. I probably wouldn't be so forgiving if he went to the scum though, I guess. I like players and tend to like them no matter what though, so I guess I'm a bit different. Plus you're old and English, don't think it's possible to be more bitter than that

    Again tho, if Torres went to play for ManUre I imagine it'd be different.

    Might just be an embittered Englishman thang, but did genuinely think it was more universal than that. It's kinda like being dumped and then your ex starting to shag a bloke who's an absolute cock.

    Think Smitteh has me mixed up with someone else, have never had my own name on a shirt. The only time I ever got anything on the back was in 04 when I vowed I get Roberts 3 if he signed a new contract. He did so I did, an he left in 06 but it's well known that he'd have loved to stay but the club offered him a pay cut and he had championship offers. He still comes to watch us as well, when he's not playing.

    Agree with Brumby though; if he'd gone to Bolton or Wrexham or something then build a bonfire

    AVB watch: asking the Spuds fans for "patience" after three league games.

    This comedy will run and run.

    Incidentally, after Falcao's masterclass versus his former English employers on Friday and the same side sniffing around Hulk for a reported 35m (neither of who were purchased by the hapless Mourinho wannabe) I think even dedicated Portuguese football non-watchers like me have worked out how Porto did so well during his brief reign.

    TBF they were both there the season before when Porto won nothing, and Hulk hardly played under AVB. Plus he worked wonders with the club he was in charge of before. Some truth in what you say though. Appaz the Portuguese folk at Chelsea liked him well enough, so language barriers could explain a lot of the absurd disparity in man-management skills. It's as if he's on a one-man crusade to prove to stupid people that they were right all along.

    Not that I'm a fan or anything. The whole "it's not him it's the players' fault!" was especially cringeworthy- it's his ****ing job to get on with the players. But despite his general rubbishness I kinda feel inclined to defend him because criticism of him often takes an anti-intellectual tone.

    No one going to argue with that.

    Not bought a Football shirt in years, only one I ever got my name on the back was a fake Lazio one that I got on holiday in Italy with Salas on the back, were very much the team I suppported most at the time (was not aware of the whole Nazi thing.)

    No real desire to get a Bees one but do kind of want a Rayo Vellecano shirt, they are just so good.

    His wiki page (usual health warnings apply) suggests he was the Portuguese league's top scorer in 2010/11. Impressive for someone who hardly played.

    Oh, Stevie, Stevie, Stevie...

    Superb movement from the Arse on the counter to punish the error and lovely finish from Podders.

    Lukas Podolski scores when he wants, does he?
