Delph

England atm have no creative midfielders... Delph has had a couple of games for Man City recently, so that's enough.

Gareth probably hasn't noticed.. we know from previous campaigns that the England manager has to pick players from certain clubs. Man City is one such club.

They're one of a group of 6 who are now looking to shaft the other 14, over international TV rights, their line being you can't sell Stoke v Burnley in the Far East, but you can a Manc derby so why should they profit?  It follows their players must be internationals, whether they're any good or not.

I know this is a serious matter and this is in no way meant to be a joke but they could have picked a better word in this sentence.

"Despite the huge numbers housed in this system, currently 12,000 boys, the chinks of first-team opportunities have diminished every year since 1997."

Apparently, definitely not Martin Glenn. Nothing wrong with him at all, despite all the evidence.

This could go in the whats right thread, but found this one first and if Richarlinson is not charged then the is wrong as its just another case of the rules only actually being imposed on the lower leagues....

Although to be fair it shows commitment to the cause to not put your toddler down whilst lamping an opposition player....

I thought the Scousers were remarkably restrained.... I suppose that passes as responsible parenting on Merseyside.

It's remarkably "New Man" really - in the old days, he'd have hit the player with the kid.

Don't say that, come Saturday taking kids into grounds will be banned as they are offensive weapons, although to be honest the high pitched noise made by the kid heavy crowds at certain England games is often fairly offensive....

My kids have both proven themselves eminently capable of being both offensive and utter fucking weapons at times, so that seems quite reasonable to me. Although in fairness on the same criteria, I'd merit a lifetime ban too.

The CG would be pretty empty if that applied.
