And I wonder if Fergie just told Phil Jones to get out there and kick everyone in sight?
I'm listening to the Men in Blazers podcast now
And Raul Meireles has just been given a red card.
The one thing that I really don't understand is pairing Gus with Warren Barton. The entire point of the Gus experiment is to create an American voice for soccer. So you pair him with a Brit? That makes zero sense to me. And that's ignoring the fact that Barton has zero insight to offer in the studio and he's seemed to be even worse having to offer color from the booth. Why not Wynalda or McBride?
But in terms of offering actual analysis, I think he's way ahead of either McBride or Wynalda.
So Spurs are resting the CD and keeper but putting in the first team everywhere else (with Adebayor forced because of Defoe)? Don't you need to rotate your midfielders more than your center defenders?
Gareth Bale's free kicks are getting Beckham-like. Holy crap.
Wondergoal from Umtiti to equalize at WHL
If Real ever signs Bale (I have a vague hope that Modric has scared them away from paying big for Tottenham players), it'll be fun watching him and Ronaldo fight over free kicks.
Previously unimaginable that an Australian would be considered for such a role, Magrone – who in his former life as a player agent took teenagers Massimo Luongo and Giancarlo Gallifuoco to Spurs and others to Ipswich Town, Derby County and West Ham United – has now joined White Hart Lane himself.
Magrone, 39, was highly recommended by Spurs football director Tim Sherwood for a position that could see him play a significant part in sculpting the long-term on-field future of the leading London club.
Having also forged close ties with Ajax and its coach Frank De Boer during his numerous years in Europe, Magrone slipped through the net in Australia after being technical director at Premier league St George and Apia Leichhardt.
It was a bit disconcerting to watch RB play for Lyon against Tottenham last night, I have to say.
To be a football hipster, it's crucial to stay ahead of the trend. In a way, this fixture may have marked the end of Borussia Dortmund's status as a cult favourite. Led by Jurgen Klopp, a lower-league player who fought his way up the ranks, they have three key attributes. They have a large natural support, they play nice football and they boast extremely talented yet relatively unknown players.
But like Ned's Atomic Dustbin's appearance on Top of the Pops in 1991, this Champions League run may be the moment when the hipsters feel the tug of the mainstream, shudder and strike out for less tumultuous waters. Besides, everyone knows who Mario Gotze is now. It's no fun anymore. As we speak, hipsters around the world are seeking out new objects of affection. Word to the wise: Nuremburg's Hiroshi Kiyotake is where it's at.
@robbierogers Brave men like you will make it so that one day there's no need for an announcement.That day can't arrive soon enough.#Support
@Joey7Barton: Can I just say well done to @robbierogers .Takes enormous amounts of courage to do what he's done. Fair play.
Great tweet from Eddie Pope
Atletico Madrid gives up an injury time goal to Rubin Kazan after their keeper comes up for a free kick at the death, and now have to overcome a 0-2 deficit in the away leg.
That's how quiet it is here at the Emirates, you can hear every song. Thankfully, that was a clean one ...
