  1. Levy only sells big players who force a move, he's never flogged someone off purely to make a quick buck.
  2. Don't think the attack has been this strong since Berbatov, Keane, Defoe and Bent were all at the club.
  3. Sounds like Lenglet on a long term loan is close now, apparently he's really struggled at Barca but if I was to bet on any manager to significantly improve a CB it's Conte.
  4. Deal done Along with Bentancur, Skipp & Hojbjerg the centre of midfield is looking extremely strong.
  5. He's barely willing to use the Force at all and spent the last decade hiding in a cave with his lightsaber buried in the desert, he's as far from his peak as he's probably been his entire life. Have you not noticed that he's been almost scared to even ignite his lightsaber?
  6. I've been playing it on an Xbox pad since it went Early access, all works great IMO.
  7. Noticed this today: Could it be...
  8. Feels like for the first time since probably Arnesen & Jol that the DoF and head coach are totally on the same page and Levy is just happy to sit back and let them get on with it. I imagine he'll still want to be involved with more significant contract negotiations *cough*Kane*cough*, hopefully that'll be enough to keep him occupied!
  9. As far as I understand it the purchase price did cover what Abramovich was owed, but he's committed to using it to aid Ukrainian refugees or rebuilding efforts or something, and the money will be held in a frozen account by the government until that is set-up. I'm sure he'll find a way to get money back from that, but it gives them a way around the sanctions in the short term.
  10. Yeah Kulusevski is a loanee for another year, I'm sure there's some accounting trickery that makes a deal like that beneficial for both parties somehow. I'd not be surprised if Paratici went back to Juve and made a similar deal for Weston McKennie.
  11. So then, ENIC is putting in £150m and there's talk about deals already being done or close to (Forster, Spence), what on earth has Paratici been dosing Daniel Levy with?!
  12. I've only been on in the last 6 weeks or so to pick up cosmetics, but that new trailer has me interested again.
  13. 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).
  14. They'd better not be serving goddamn lasagne the night before!
  15. It's going to be an epic battle of Antonio Conte's sheer force of will vs Spurs' inherent Spursiness.
  16. Also the Adidas shoulder stripes and the geometric ones really clash, and what's with the super shiny Jeep logo with lightning bolts?!
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. He has now died - https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/61259954
  21. 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.
  22. Two of the most perfect passes you'll ever see:
  23. 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.
