    Townsend single handedly carried England to one of the tournaments back in his day. In a turgid England squad he was the only player willing to attack and run at people and impact the scoreline. Seem to remember he got badly injured and then Poch came to spurs and didn't fancy him for some reason. Never really the same player again.

    what do you make of it so far Tim? I have to say I'm not a fan of the style yet am happy to throw my hat in the ring of 'swarm ball'. The pressing was impressive early on but the refining of Howard wilkinsons route 1 into route 0.75 leaves me thinking i may not be handing over money too often this season.
    went to the arsenal cup game hoping to see a real good dust up. got caught in a traffic jam, missed the opening 15 mins. sat down and immediately arsenal scored. went to the vine after 70 mins. absolute shocker.

    what we have heard over the last few days though is fans of the big six continually heaping praise on themselves for uniting and saving football because they just love those cold wet Tuesday night games at stoke and want to play in a league that gives clubs like west brom a chance to win trophies and live the dream while completely forgetting that their clubs have been making sure the whole set up benefits them and gives all the other clubs little to no chance of ever succeeding if we cant find our own billionaire despots or Arab absolute monarch who wants to promote hic country for the post oil future. I haven't heard anybody suggesting a Cl with more slots for Romania or Czech republic and a reduction in places for the English or the Italians. I havemt heard any fans asking for Sky TV deal money to be distributed more equally. I think the other 86 footlball clubs in this country missed a big opportunity to get rid of the bent 6 and prosper without them.

    surely now we can get rid of Allardyce?! club is going to be in a desperate position next season wondering why it wasted money on him and his loan players while looking for a manager in the Bilic category. A man that could work wonders with little budget and average squad players. You cant make this shit up

    most players just want to protect their wages. All those players at the non big six clubs would be shitting themselves that they would be losing the big wages if TV deals collapsed or were rewritten at lower prices. Most of the players at the big six clubs would happily play in a ESL if the fans hadn't come out against it.
