    our biggest rivals are playing AC Milan in the Europa League tonight and it's very funny that one of the biggest games in the club's history has to be played behind closed doors

    there's a lot of "i hope they win for the good of the league" sentiment going around that I'm morally opposed to. I genuinely hope Zlatan kicks their shit in

    I don't think that's something you'll need to hope too hard for.

    rovers did better than expected, which is obviously disappointing

    Calhanoglu and Hernandez were impressive i thought but overall you could tell Milan were in pre-season mode

    No coverage here so I had to follow match updates and social media.

    it was your usual david vs goliath, rovers had ten men behind the ball and let milan do their thing. The first goal came from a defensive mistake, the second was a cracker. Donnarumma was forced into two good saves but overall it was men against boys even though Milan never really shifted out of second gear

    We’ve apparently flogged Jota to Liverpool for three or four times what we paid for him.

    Hmmmm. He was pretty good but seemed to score a hat trick and then nowt for ages.

    My own 2020 season came to a belated close today, with the season start delayed owing to lockdown at the start of the season.

    Scored a goal and later chipped two teeth when I got leveled on the ball, so I'd say I got to experience the full gamut of the on field experience today. Now I have the worst part of football... the offseason.

    6 months off and counting here.

    They offered some 7v7 outdoor with masks on recently but, like, no.

    Wolves are close to signing the Barcelona defender Nélson Semedo, having made a bid of €38m (£34.8m) for the Portugal international.

    Portuguese, you say?

    If you want to know who Wolves will sign, just look at Jorge Mendes' client list and throw a dart.

    Mesut Ozil: 'Very difficult' for Arsenal midfielder to get back into squad, says Mikel Arteta

    Mikel Arteta had admitted that it is "very difficult" for Mesut Ozil to break back into his Arsenal side after leaving the midfielder out of a fourth successive matchday squad.

    Mesut shrugs, and then smiles thinking about all the zeros on the payslip Arsenal gave him this week and every week.

    Yup, hopefully we can clear out the chaff in the next 2 years.

    Surely they’re going to change this handball rule. It’s utterly ludicrous.

    Never change Spurs - should have put the game to bed so much earlier.

    Trying not to be a whingebag but surely it's a higher % chance now to aim for players arms in the box to win a pen than it is to try and score?

    Basketball has the three second rule. Perhaps they should introduce that one here?

    I have a marvelous knack for picking lads that will bag at least 10 points and leaving them on the bench
    Last week - Pereira
    This week - Mahrez

    Thanks to this stellar decision making, I'm seven points off bottom, with only Firmino left to play, and the guy in last place has van Dijk, Tierney, Ceballos, and Aubameyang to play.

    Whelp.....

    God I loved Delap-era Stoke, and the consternation they wrought amongst those with ideas about football 'should' be played.

    Didn't realise Darren Fletcher had moved into punditry, thought he was very good last night.
