    Yes, in your opinion. What I'm asking is what's the basis for your/this opinion? Some examples would probably help me understand.
  4. Taking The Pee Out Of Liverpool (For Khobar)

    DANIEL STURRIDGE has denied gambling on football after he was charged by the FA for breaching betting rules. The Liverpool striker has been found guilty of misconduct for placing bets in January 2018 - after the winter transfer window had opened. According to reports, Sturridge has been stung for betting on transfers of players and managers and is believed to have used a third party. The 29-year-old could now face a fine and lengthy ban depending on the severity of the incident.

  6. Chelsea 0 Everton 0

    Reflecting on this afternoon’s 0-0 draw at home to Everton, Maurizio Sarri said he was pleased with the performance of his team for much of the game, but frustrated with another slow start. On a day when Sarri became the first Premier League manager to go through his opening 12 Premier League matches unbeaten, the Italian watched his side pass up a number of opportunities in the second half, having struggled to create too many in the opening 45 minutes. That, said Sarri, is a bit of a concern. ‘To be honest I didn’t like the first 25 minutes very much,’ said Sarri. ‘Like against Crystal Palace we started the game moving the ball very slowly so it was impossible for us to be dangerous and easy for Everton to defend. ‘Then we played a good match in the last part of the first half and for 40 minutes in the second half. We were a bit unlucky. I’m not happy of course but we are going the right way.’ Sarri was asked if his team are ruthless enough in attack ‘I don’t know. Usually, yes. Not in the last three matches because as I said to my players, we created few goal opportunities in relation to how much we played. So in this moment maybe it’s a little problem. We have to be careful because in the last three matches you are right. ‘I think we played very well for 65 minutes today. Maybe in this period we are not able to create for how much we played. For example in the last match in the Europa League we played 81 balls in the BATE box but created only four opportunities, and I think we can do better, but we are playing very well, just not at the beginning.’ Sarri also provided his thoughts on setting a new Premier League record for going unbeaten in his first 12 matches ‘On the record, what can I say? I’m very proud. I have to say thank you to the club because they gave me a very good team. I have to say than you to my players and also my staff. But today I would have preferred three points to the record.’

    Like you, I don't know for 100% certain, but reading what went on at the time, I doubt that it made any difference at all. Ruins a good 'dig' though, doesn't it?
  8. Tiemoue Bakayako

    Did he? I doubt that - didn't he want to go play for JM? I think so.
  9. Non Chelsea: Premier League

    Celebrate, would be my guess. Forget Mourinho, he's little more than a sideshow - it's about City not getting to run away with the PL.

    I think that you're going to get your wish, Bob.......:).

    So? It's Roman's money, and spending 10 mill of it is little more than RA shouting coffee and cake for his minions around the world. I'm quite sure that he's not losing sleep over it.

    Well, the lovely Marina must have seen something in him at the time to pay the asking price. 'What', I'm not sure, but 'something', surely?

    Yes. Everybody else saw it, but not you? What a surprise..... Surely you're being harsh on yourself.....

    Everyone and his dog, saw that. Well, one of you is, and I don't think that it's Ham....:).
