I'd rather not know and be us than know and be them at the moment.  Interestingly I think it was 9 clubs who don't produce full accounts in this league, including us of course.  It's an area the FL could insist upon as a regulator - full financial disclosure if you want the Golden Share.

The ball being returned to the team in possession after an injury stoppage is good, very sporting and sometimes gets applauded.

Having it hoofed back to the goalkeeper by the opposition after maybe being in a threatening position is not so good.

Why not just have an uncontested drop ball from the ref, at the spot where last possession was prior to the game being stopped.
At least then it's up to the team gaining possession, if 20 passes later the ball ends up back with the goalkeeper anyway.

In the Premier League era, so in the last 24 and a half seasons only 24 penalties have been awarded to away teams at Old Trafford and of those only 17 have been scored, including one by Paul Bodin!

Not so much what's wrong with football, more what's wrong with Russia.

It's Brazil. To them this is probably no different to when Luke McCormick started playing again

Kit manufacturers having more say in the colour/design of kits than the clubs or national associations that wear the fucking things:

I started to read it, not sure why to be honest, but was forced to stop by this mind-melting bollocks:

Quote from: Nike
Extensively tested by the England squad, Nike AeroSwift technology represents Nike’s most advanced apparel innovation with enhanced fit, superior breathability and reduced weight.

Designed to facilitate football at top speed, the shirt’s engineered knit zones create a geometric pattern that enhances fit for the athlete in motion.

Seriously? What cunt writes this guff.

As far as guff goes, that's very top speed.

Just seen a photo of the tackle on Seamus Coleman last night.
Nasty. Hope he can make a full recovery from that.

Did you see the Bale one on John O'Shea? Very lucky indeed

I like it. Basic but smart. I don't think it hurts to have a break from tradition (although as I type this I immediately think Southgate V Germany in 96). We've been shit in red for 40 years, maybe it's time to retire it? (ooh, controversial)

Isn't Cullum the one that always gets wheeled out? And wee Willie of course. Oh, and Ivo Graham.
