What?

It'd be a piece of piss to them.

The idea that Scholes, Le Tissier, Gerrard, Lampard, Rooney etc couldn't do that is laughable.

Guys like Foden, Grealish, Mount, Maddison etc could do that in their sleep.

There's semi pro footballers in England who could do that drill.
Im not talking about the most technically gifted of our generation. I’m talking about your average British Premier League footballer.
Maybe it was a bad drill to pick on but your average Brit footballer isn’t as technically skilled as your other nationalities and that is very apparent when you watch a premier team warm up.
I watched Monaco vs Spurs a few years ago in a pre season friendly and Monaco pissed all over the spurs players.
Edit that was in 2013. Seen enough of premier league and international teams since, live, to know I’m right.

You'd have to think that anything other than a win in the Manchester derby will be curtains for Ole.

Utd are becoming a mid table team, which is unprecedented in my lifetime. A disappointing result against city would be a pretty apt time to pull the trigger.
I've a feeling they might get some decent results against Spurs and City, they've raised their game for the better sides they've faced this season.

A quiz for football fans. No fucking cheating.

Harry Kane scored his first goal for Spurs in the same stadium that Cristiano Ronaldo made his Real Madrid Debut. Can you name that stadium?

The Tallaght Stadium. Ronald's debut for Real was against Shamrock Rovers in that ground.

Like Lineker said, if this was given to the best player, it would be Messi's every year. Different planet.
Must be the first time in a couple of years that it wasn't given on a sympathy vote to an aging player that performed better than expected or somebody that just happened to win the CL.

That was a very good performance from United. The way they played in the first 30 minutes or so was class, they were all over City and could have scored a few more. I thought they switched to a defensive game too soon but the way they defended was impressive, there's definitely something starting to click with them. Solskjaer will still have his doubters, I'm sure, but he tactically outclassed Guardiola early on and knew how to weather the impending storm.

Man City :lol:

They've certainly got some pondlife who follow that club, throwing objects at players, monkey chants, probably the odd song about Munich in there too.
