    Liverpool got lucky tonight, Zlatan wasn't available for Milan.

    PSG having Neymar, Messi & Mbappe up front and failing to beat Bruges is almost as bad as United's result.
    Almost.

    Pep is going to literally eat Pochettino alive at this rate. We'll all be watching, horrified at the act of cannibalism occurring on the sidelines during what's supposed to be a routine group stage matchup for an innocent sporting event. "Somebody do something!" will be the cry as Guardiola begins to bite into the still-beating heart. Distraught at having been party to facilitating such macabre events, Grealish will request a £50 million raise.

    ANGRY RANT:

    So sick of the Ole out brigade- there’s a reason why most often the fans who grew up watching United in the 80’s want Ole to stay…

    I swear this FIFA mentality is the absolute worst thing of the modern football fan. GET OFF MY LAWN!

    goretzka extended his contract with bayern through 2026. world class talent, never a chance he'd go elsewhere.

    When your Czech club beats your main club's derby opposition that considers your club rivals but your club does not consider any clubs rivals due to quirks of historical circumstances and also the entire thing is in the ECL which no one can decide on the importance of and also that's only possible because your Czech club got screwed out of the Europa league and the maybe-rival club dramatically outperformed your club last season despite only recently being promoted.

    Way to go, Slavia? :p

    Because he's a club legend.

    It's perfectly understandable why some fans would be angry.
    Ole has brought in one of the world's best CBs, a world class Winger & one of the best to ever play the game as a centre forward, yet he still seems keen to play the same side to side long ball defensive slow counter attacking football we saw last season.
    With the creative & attacking talent the team now has available, they should be playing like Liverpool & City do instead of trying to park the bus against minor teams to defend a 1-0 lead.

    No more excuses with this squad, win something this season or get the boot.
    It's too good to fail, unless the coaches aren't up to it.

    I don’t know what shift Dárdai made in terms of his dealings with the squad but you can honestly feel the better attitude from Hertha after the international break. This is much more like the club I fell in love with. “Yeah we suck. But **** you we’re going to try to win anyway.”

    Warms my bitter old heart.

    Edit: Hah, even the boss just got a yellow. You, um, love to see it?

    You love to see it-

    Pep asking the fans to come fill up the Emptyhad only to get his own fanbase riled up against him- Goes to the press and says “If I am a problem with my fans then maybe I will step aside”. Then today, draws Southampton 0-0 with only ONE SHOT ON TARGET. Shocking to say the least- could this be the season Pep walks out? One sure hopes so- nothing would delight me more than see CITEH crumble.

    Yes, and then that would leave the top of the table wide open for West Ham United, who are definitely the number two contenders in the EPL, once they get the rest of Slavia’s starting 11 in the winter transfer window.

    61% possession
    17 shots
    10 on target
    11 corners

    you were all over them


    "yeah but player X did something stupid which totally invalidates the performance"


    Honestly, I reckon if I looked back, there would be a critical post after the 9-0 drubbing you gave Southampton last year.

    At least De Gea actually saved a penalty.

    Beautiful goal from Kante. Right in the corner, off the post. A perfect strike.

    Three missed penalties in your game alone.

    Walkers red card and pen not a clear and obvious error so should have stood .

    Poor reffing standards again mainly driven by VAR at the weekend.

    0-1 at the half at Camp Nou against Granada?

    Granada.

    I'm not exactly a Koeman apologist but surely even ol' Ronnie can turn this around with a weakened squad. ... Surely.
