Ultimately, English players playing more matches in a season than their international counterparts is something to bear in mind every 2 years when we expect them to go out and play a summer tournament after a gruelling long season.


True but considering that many of the top foreign players play in the Premier League, they seem to manage.


Well, who won the last two World Cups?
Not that many Germans playing outside of Germany, and not that many Spaniards outside of Spain (especially not in 2010).

Maybe a better option would be to say to the clubs in the European competitions that they can drop out of the League Cup. The little clubs can get a decent payday from playing the likes of Man Utd, Liverpool etc in the FA Cup. Especiallyat the big stadiums.

Ha, just as I predicted.

No action taken against Man Utd fans singing at Anfield, but Liverpool charged for their role in what happened at Old Trafford:

Classic UEFA.

Terrible news. He was probably the best player to play at a World Cup Finals not to win the trophy.

RIP

That's a huge shout! Best, Ronaldo, Messi...

He was one of the all time greats though.

Edit: Apparently Best didn't play in a World Cup. I could have sworn he did! I guess I probably wasn't watching much TV back then.

Liverpool and Dortmund fans have been singing You'll Never Walk Alone together in Liverpool City Centre today, and other football fans are absolutely furious about it on Twitter.

In Scotland, Old Firm game tomorrow. Chance for Rangers to see how far we've come and maybe put down a marker for next season. Should be a belter at Hampdon.

Hats off to Leicester City. One of, if not the greatest, shocks in history. Not sure why Spurs played like it was 1970.
