The entire MK Dons squad cost just £235,000 - less than what Wayne Rooney earns in one week.
+11
Is that transfer fees? That can't be the combined team salary. If so, wow that's low. They are still in the league I would expect they earn at least a living wage.
+1
didnt realize you need £235,000 a week to live a daily life...
Congratulation to MK Dons!!
+11
They were brilliant. Didnt let us have a moments rest and was clinical with every chance they got. It should have been 5-0. They had a penalty shout wrongfully turned down too.

Sir Alex Ferguson: The Great One

Arsene Wenger: The Invincible One

Jose Mourinho: The Special One

Carlo Ancelotti: The Decima One

David Moyes: The Chosen One

......

Van Gaal: The Pre-Season One

Oh Johny you never disappoint
More like Van Gaal: The Unlucky One. He'll have a hell of a time trying to transform that squad into world beaters.

This comparison make me curious.

From a neutral point of view, if you don't hate either club, what is more inspiring/legendary to you?

Manchester United's 1999 UCL victory over Bayern? or Liverpool's 2005 UCL Victory over AC Milan??

I would like to hear the communities opinion on this.
MK Dons.
+41
lol.
too soon, Mt...too soon...
I'll say Liverpool's is more inspiring, United's is more legendary.

Liverpool's is more inspiring because it was a 3 goal deficit, overturned that quickly. And against a Milan defense, who you would have thought would have it wrapped it up, but it just goes to show that anything is possible. After that, the game was tied until penalties, but it was a great comeback that got it there, and the win got them the trophy permanently.

United's is more legendary to me because of the way it was won in the final two minutes, with two scrappy goals from the corner. It was literally unbelievable and pretty much summed up our season that year. It also completed the only English Continental Treble ever, on the anniversary of the 68 European Cup Final, so I think that is more the stuff of legend.

Clearly positives to both, so hard to pick. And Mt may be right, MK Dons' run may surpass them both.

Frank Lampard retires from international footy

here is a stat to look back on his career

40 - Frank Lampard has hit more World Cup shots without being credited with a goal than any other player (1966-2014). Denied.

+3
Finally!!! Now with him and Gerrard gone, England might have a chance in international competitions.
+5
Eto'o has arrived for a medical with Everton
Englands future Begins with Henderson and Wilshere forming a solid understanding in midfield
+2
He should have had one goal >_> I think we all know which.
+1
It's cute that u guys think England has a future.
+6
Just for the lols

Best thing Lampard ever did for England was getting goal line technology brought in. -twitter trolls

+6
Impressive
Imagine if he wasn't injured all the time.
Impressive but why on earth is Kanu mentioned there? Why not anyone else(with a better or worse record)? Did he do something to piss OptaJoe off? :P
@Suraj, they had to find a comparison with 54 goals.
You should compare minutes played. Kanu came in as a sub most of the time.

Stats are often abused to make something look good or bad.

Here you go, he has the best mins per goal stats in the PL history:

Thanks Foooty. I was surprised to see Suarez at the bottom there
That show Henry and RVN is the best 9/15 diferent in mins per goal stats in the PL history, but impressive by Aguero tho
Based on the stats Henry is the absolute best striker to have graced the EPL in terms of strike rate for that crazy amount of goals. Aguero has a chance to overtake him. Will take a long long spell though, a lot of fitness and tenacity.

Can't imagine Henry has been banging in goals for several years in La Liga and MLS AFTER this mammoth haul. Legend.

They even use the stats to make the stories
it wasn't just the quantity or the strike rate, but also the quality of the goals that made Henry a legend. Some of his goals made you scratch your head and think 'how can he do that?'.

Every club has their king (Kenny, Cantona etc), Henry is ours. Terrifying combination of power, pace and intelligence on the pitch meant he could score against anyone, whenever he wanted.

well, the thing also you have to put in to consideration before whoever posted that tweet

1. Kanu was never a natural forward and was mostly used versatily on the pitch.. from CM, winger, supporting forward

2. Kanu also has always had injuries.. and Wenger never really let him play a full game becos of his heart condition

3. they obviously added his shitty periods in portsmouth; coupled with his age then

i think there should have been a better comparism with someone like V. nisterooy rather than Kanu
+2
looks like everton are about to sign eto'o on a two year deal.. wonder how long until lukaku submits a transfer request :P
+3
Lukaku and Etoo, thats scary!
+1
good move for Eto'o...didn't want him to go to the MLS yet...still has some mileage...
