Well done Rochdale. They have named a terminally ill five year old as a substitute in their next match.

It's great to see a football club that understands that the fans are the club.
To quote Joe Strummer "without people you are nothing".

Has he? I'd be curious to hear more about this perspective. Klinsmann has his faults, but I think he's largely doing what he was brought in to do for the US.

That said, it doesn't sound like he's a front-runner and I wouldn't see him being a good fit anyways.
I was referring to the 4th place at a weak Copa America last month on the back of 4th place at 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup. Missed opportunities? USA want shot of him too.
I told you it was coming

JB and he's going to sock it to ya!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pogba jumps over a foul and gets booked for diving.
3 days later and West Ham player jumps out of a foul that would have missed him by a clear foot and Rooney gets booked.
Rooney then gets kicked in the face causing injury whilst going for a standing header in the penalty box and it is not even a foul.
What with Valencia being rugby tackled by Arsenal in the penalty box for no foul I am not suprised Mourihno is a little annoyed.
What the fuck are all these referees and assistant referees actually paid to do :huh:

Plenty of silly decisions and inconsistencies. However Mourinho needs to be a bit smarter with his anger.

Yes I'm not condoning Mourinho's behaviour (and I don't approve of a lot of what he does and says but that is another issue) but I understand his frustration the inconsistencies in refereeing are ridiculous.

Q: What do you expect when you bring on a player who looks like a member of the hair bear bunch?

A: Cartoonish behaviour.

Fellani what a nightmare! By far Evertons best player on the pitch.

Jose can only blame himself. When will he learn that if you sit back and try and hold a lead, instead of carrying on playing the way that got you in the lead, is not a good idea.

A Liverpool fan walks into a travel agents and says "I'm looking for a small break away in England for the Christmas period, but I don't know where to go?" The travel agent replies "You can't beat Bournemouth this time of year".
