    Replace Tottenham with Leeds and it still works



    Money, the FA still have contractual obligations which they're fulfilling

    Right, but UEFA and/or FIFA should've stepped in and cancelled useless events like friendlies and the Nation's League. I'm amazed clubs haven't kicked up more of a fuss.

    I agree with Mus. And it has nothing to do with injuries, **** happens.

    but sending players all over the world during this global pandemic is nothing short of stupid.

    Yeah it's ridiculous.

    Most of the Covid incidents seem to happen on international duty, because players break the club team bubble.

    Which is basically ruling out a player for 2 weeks. And that's a problem with this season's hectic schedule

    Totally agree that friendlies.should have been binned

    Competitive matches fair.enough, even this silly new one though if it disappeared I wouldn't care

    Liverpool having a tough time.

    Down two CBs & CDM, now minus their main goalscorer for 2 weeks

    Not worried about upfront. It’s one game or so for Salah and there is always Jota, Minamino and Origi. Defence is grim, though.

    thank god its over, give me back my timo.

    chilwell getting hurt is hopefully the extent of our damage, although he's been our best player this year.

    Surely it's time for Germany to move on from Löw.

    He failed spectacularly here, as he did when they didn't get out of the group stage at 2018 WC.

    Dear God... I've been a little out of touch with the lower-than-a-worm's-belly UK press, but if half of what I see in this vid is true, than I see absolutely nothing has changed since I've been away:



    Irrespective of which club these young players play for, they are hardly going to turn in consistent performances under this kind of pressure, FFS...

    good on brighton. also good on var, thwarting michael oliver from ****ing the game away in stoppage time. brighton red should easily be overturned on appeal.

    city/spurs should be good.

    Hopefully overnight if City claw this back. Jury's out for me on both the 2nd Yellow (won't be overturned as it was a yellow card, not a red) and the penalty. Was a cracking game though.

    2nd Yellow was given for 3 reasons. 1) He'd not long already been booked. Should have been more wary. 2) Grealish is consistently fouled. 3) Tempers at that point in the game were very fraught.

    As for the penalty, were it anywhere else on the pitch it would be given without a doubt. Saying it's not a penalty is the equivalent of saying Pickford's challenge on Van Dijk was fair. Momentarily touched the ball before the tackle.

    Another draw for Barrow with ANOTHER goal in the last 5 mins condemning us to a draw.

    Dunn is pleasing me so far, we're playing good football and look threatening, we're still too naive at the back though and need to get this sorted ASAP

    Mata starting again?
    I really don't get it.

    Greenwood or VDB could play in his place.

    Lindelof I thought was injured, I hope playing him won't backfire when we could just play Tuanzebe

    At least Matic starts ahead of McTominay.

    Teams that sit deep are not what United like to play.
    Especially with two holding midfielders.

    This will be much tougher than the Everton game I think.
    As will Instanbul again.
