  1. Good article in The Athletic on the past 7 months of Conte's reign and just how he's changing things: https://theathletic.com/3324914/2022/05/22/shock-therapy-and-a-sprint-finish-how-antonio-conte-took-spurs-back-into-the-champions-league/?source=twitteruk Reminds me a lot of the early days of Pochettino, but with the dial turned up to 11. Edit: Also, I think my favourite part of yesterday was when Kulusevski curled that peach into the top corner after the Norwich fans were giving it large after the missed chance (which he was clearly looking to square to Son).
  2. They'd better not be serving goddamn lasagne the night before!
  3. It's going to be an epic battle of Antonio Conte's sheer force of will vs Spurs' inherent Spursiness.
  4. Also the Adidas shoulder stripes and the geometric ones really clash, and what's with the super shiny Jeep logo with lightning bolts?!
  5. Getting a strong rugby league vibe from those shoulder stripes. Here's Roma's new kit: Reminds me of a richly upholstered armchair next to a huge fireplace, which isn't something I'd associate with a football kit usually.
  6. You can play something like 3 games or fewer now and still switch, it used to be something a player could appeal to do (I think that's what Zaha did?) but they implemented an rule on it not too far back. Steven Caulker, for example, plays for Sierra Leone now.
  7. He was in hospital last night, so I think the reports of him passing were probably just a bit premature. Edit - Oh no, he died yesterday, so that must have been Thursday night.
  8. He has now died - https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/61259954
  9. It's a sting at the business end of the season but better he got the proper treatment now (which it seems he has) and recovered properly rather than trust the medical team to "manage" it and have it develop into a long-term problem that cuts his career short.
  10. Two of the most perfect passes you'll ever see:
  11. I think Uncle Harry told him that it was a good idea. Maybe if Lampard had some of the man management ability Harry has then it would have been.
  12. So it isn't the club or even the owners, but the investment firm that owns their landlords who have also been fucking them around the club since 2018 (they want the land). Looks like trying to drive a football club out of existence is extremely low down on their list of crimes, though! :s Oh god I've just realised they're the baddies from an 80s sports movie.
  13. Love this story about Defoe, told by another striker you may have heard of:
  14. Same Hamstring again, he probably needs an extended rest to let it properly heal rather than getting rushed back.
  15. Unrelenting should make it really good for survivability given how potent the poison burst is, although It would have been nice if that had got a little size buff too.
  16. There are a number of mods on your helmet which control getting orbs from weapons, dependent on the element you have equipped or the element of the armour.
  17. Scoring 4 goals is great and all, but it makes me pretty darn sad that it's the result that finally gets Bielsa sacked.
  18. Losing Dier from the back has thrown the balance off, which really shows how much better he's been since Conte arrived. That midfield was odd though, can only imagine that Hojbjerg was also nursing a knock as throwing Winks in there with a still adjusting Bentancur was always going to be a problem.
  19. I wouldn't be so quick to replace him, especially short-term. He may not be the absolute best but he offers a degree of leadership there that nobody else really does, and that's an important element. It is unfortunate for Skipp as he's done nothing really wrong, though.
  20. A few people in the comments suggesting that him dropping down to this kind of film & needing an earpiece for lines is due to progressing dementia, which would be pretty damn sad if accurate.
  21. I would imagine people will miss Dele as he's been there for so long and was good mates with a number of players, I saw somewhere Lo Celso was pretty unpopular though.
  22. As long as Villareal can clear a squad spot it looks like he's also off.
  23. Seems both Kulusevski and Betancur are now close, that'd be 2/3 of the supposed targeted positions filled for the window. Of Paratici can pull a RWB out of somewhere too then the results of the window suddenly look quite good.
