In two minds if this is wrong of not. Whilst he has a valid point, he shouldn't be questioning the manager.

Hi pressure situation, wrong way to deal with it but one of those things blown out of proportion.

Chris Smalling’s comments on not being in the England squad. The level of arrogance from an incredibly limited footballer is hilarious.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/42071986

Quote from: Chris Smalling
“I play for one of the biggest clubs and most successful managers in Jose [Mourinho]," he said.

"You don't play for one of the biggest clubs in the world for as long as I have and won most trophies bar the Champions League without being able to do everything that a top defender can do, be it playing or defending.

"Was I surprised? Yes."

He has rather failed to even address the reason Southgate gave for not picking him in that interview, I suspect as deep down he knows his limitations. Must be sore when even your injured team mate (with a stupid face) gets picked above you  Cheesy

Tony Cascarino said in the Times today he gets unfair criticism because he plays for Utd.

Just in case anyone didn't know already that almost everything Cascarino says is a load of shite.

Back to that Shearer-presented documentary about brain damage, did any of the older TEF-ers see the bit about Matt Tees and his wife? Heartbreaking, he has no knowledge now of his life as a legendary goalscorer, something like 150+ goals in 350-odd games. He was one of those lower league players who’d be in the Sunday paper goal scoring list week after week, which is how I knew of him, and loved wherever he played.

Saw this quote in the Grimsby Fishy forum:

“And remarkably he looked nothing like a professional footballer! Love this extract from McMenemy's book:

"I took a deep breath and entered the dressing room. I thought a sea mist had swept in. It wasn't unusual on the coast but in this case I looked toward the corner of the dressing room and saw one of my new players smoking a pipe. It turned out the player was Matt Tees. He was a Scot, a scrawny, skinny sort, a pipe-smoker who looked like a puff of wind would blow him over."

I know the word legend gets overused these days, but this man will forever be in our hearts - and deservedly so.”

Quite rightly known as ‘Sir Matt’ by Grimsby fans, in the style of Sir Don.

I've never heard any Town fans say Sir Don. The Don yes.

Whats wrong with football?

People referring to Manchester United as just 'Utd' ignoring the plethora of other Uniteds in the game!

Apologies its a bug bear of mine, commentators often do it when Man U are even playing another team with Utd in their name.....

All kicked off in the El Glosico yesterday. Some loud chanting and a smoke bomb from the Cheltenham boys!

 TBF to Sam, Everton were paying Koeman £6 mill pa.  They spoke to him before and offered less...to use the Brexit zeitgeist, he told them "go whistle"

 So 9 mill over 18 months is just their going rate.

I thought that meant they would pay him £57bn???

He's a solid manager. Alleged dodgy past aside. Safe pair of hands.
Not sure what people's expectations of Everton are. Mid table with a chance of top 6 would be mine. He can surely achieve that.

If you are talking style of football, or his 'past' then yeah, maybe that's not so hot!
