Sure, but for a long campaign or a big tournament you might still draft in Trippier for cover.

One of the things England has been sorely lacking over the last several tournaments is International Experience.

Most players from other countries branch out and play abroad and learn new styles and techniques whereas English players were largely England based and then their clubs would fill their positions with purchased continental talent.

Semi PL related, it looks like the athletic is poaching all the major English football writers they can

So far they have announced some big names like ornstein, oliver kay, daniel taylor and more are expected before the season

Sweet Jebus. I thought the PL would have had the foresight to have regulations to prevent things like this.

Or is it an one off publicity stunt?

I saw those in two different places. I would hope it's a publicity stunt, but all I can say is I'm never complaining about Spurs shirts again after seeing that abomination.

EPL and Huddersfield aside, how does someone at PaddyPower not step in and say "no, this makes our company look like a ####ing cartoon"

No, why would I follow a betting company on twitter? I'm not a degenerate gambler.

They have some pretty funny posts, but it's pretty clear that looking like clowns is also part of their plan.

It's a genius move from PaddyPower.
Not so smart from Huddersfield.

Man U beat Leeds 4-0 in Perth last night. It was the first time the teams had met since 2011. Unexpectedly there was a brawl between opposing fans.

stuff like that Huddersfield kit really pisses me off. Sports betting companies are the worst, and if you need further proof, just take a quick look at how they make profits from fake transfer news: http://sportwitness.co.uk/odds-wolve...th-overlooked/

and while I absolutely hate every single betting company, seeing the crappiest of the bunch being plastered all over a football jersey makes me sick to my stomach. Sports betting just needs to die, too bad it never will.

Good times for Robbie.


Iíve been a member since the scheme was introduced. I had Silver membership which was better than having a season ticket. You were pretty much guaranteed to get to any game you wanted (even when demand was through the roof) without having to commit to all the games.

Last year I considered letting the membership lapse but decided against it because it would take well over a decade to get back to Silver membership.

This year, Iíve had enough. I let the membership lapse. I canít stomach parting with another penny only for it to contribute towards Kroenkeís investment vehicle.

The money saved is being spent on One Soccer where the vast majority involved in the game are there because they love it and want to grow it.

Yeah. I think that's the only way to do it.

Might take the supporters running the club into the ground in order to get desired change. And it wouldn't be a case of abandoning the club. Simply action for change.

Looks like the kit was part of a campaign to promote kits without ads

The real kit released today. Too lazy to post. Going back to bed. Google it.

Aston Villa now over 120 million pounds in signings this summer as they get ready for the premier league again. I'm so pumped to be able to watch them not on a crappy stream on my computer again, and for people to finally realize how good Jack Grealish is.

Almost time to sign up for DAZN. I guess I should maximize the free month and wait another week.

I would wait until the day you want to watch a game!

On the DAZN topic, I've posted here about some of my trials and tribulations with them. The best I've found so far is the Amazon Fire Stick with DAZN. You can get it as HD or 4K, and the streaming and such seems really good there.
