Re: Generic clubs in financial crisis Thread

Former owner of Wigan (now in administration) has waived £36m in loans. https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/53851995

This is absolutely not money laundering.

Colin's back!

Boro have sacked Woodgate, and appointed Colin....who undoubtedly only took the job as it was a lifelong ambition.

Re: LOLiverpooLOL - Next Season

Had to chuckle last night in the pub- bloke (think he's an Arsenal fan ftr) claiming if this virus thing gets worse, then the rest of the football season would be cancelled and Liverpool wouldn't win the title.

Almost worth putting that level of stupidity on Twitter to see how many you could hook.

Re: The Manager Sack Race/Merry-go-Round

Vaguely interested/intrigued - Victor Sanchez has been sacked as manager of Malaga because of some video doing the rounds....BBC report said he claimed he was being blackmailed ahead of its release...what is it? Just another sex tape, or is there something juicy?

Yeah, triple Ballon d'Or winning Michel 'not a footballer' Platini. Corrupt as fvck though which is a disappointment.

Agree it is disappointing.

Re: The Playoffs 2018/19 edition

The only reason I could possibly want Leeds to go up would be that it would mean there would be more variety on Sky (relegation might also achieve this, although that's not 100%) Maybe it would also be nice to LOL at them having a mare in the prem but hopefully we'll get that from FLDC Can you imag...

Danny Drinkwater: 20 month driving ban, and despite preferring a fine to a community order- 70 hours of community work.

Re: Champions League & Europa League 2018/19

I actively dislike Chelsea. I would always want the other team to beat them. Except when they play West Ham, obviously.

I have never met anyone who knows a Chelsea fan who isn't a complete pcunt.

Re: The footballer gets arrested thread

His defence barrister was pleading that he often does the school run- his children will miss out.

I'd say, if he has form for using his phone while driving, banning him from driving his kids around does them a massive favour.
