Fun very very fun fact:Fabregas has assisted 50 goals in his last 104 PL appearances.
What is so funny about it ?
+1
Wanna hear a funny fact?
Fabregas has made in one game more assists than carrick, cleverly, young and valencia combined in a whole season.
+2
Cannot believe Arsenal passed on him. I don't care if you have a player in his position, you buy him anyway. Guy has become seriously underrated since moving to Barca.
He said fun fact, and whats with the hostility and an uncalled for potshot?
+1
@Bluff , excatly ! i want to know funny bit out of that fact , maybe i am missing something ?

@LyverBird , no need to provide me a reason to grab another bucket full of popcorn's
Fun fact: I wanted to eat some bread today, but I forgot to buy some this week so I had to eat cornflakes instead.

- James Milner
+3
Lyverbird, what was the that? Had nothing to do with the post lol

But since we're talking about funny facts, Cleverley, Young and Valencia all have more PL titles than Stevie G
Who are the next possible 3 managers to be sacked?

1. West Fat Sam United
2. Louis Van GONE
3. Sean Douche
Found this and West Fat Sam United is on top lol:

Van Gaal won't be sacked.

I think it could be Pardew, and that's not necessarily anything to do with Newcastle's performances. He'll punch Mike Ashley in a meeting or something and he'll be off, but not before doing his usual interview routine.

"Well uhh, I can only apologize, what can I say, it's unacceptable behavior and I can only apologize for my actions, so sorry, I can only apologize, I can only apologize, I can only...apologize..."

Yes Alan we get it, you can only apologize. This is now the fifth time you "can only apologize".
+2
^yeah you may be right about Pardew, I was thinking very highly of him until he called Pellegrini a “f------ old c---” on the touchline last year, plus he had several other incidents, like pushing that player...
The names are SO mature.....

Agree with Dougie.
+2
^^I didn't come up with them, but thank you for your SO mature contribution...
I hate it when they sack big sam...his one of the managers am too used to seeing in this league..It's like the EPL is missing something without him..such a huge character..I think it will be Padrew
Haha! Dougie's funny post makes me wish it would happen. I don't like Pardew either, I hope his ridiculous 8-year contract will be broken because of another punch or some uncalled for abusive nonsense of his.
+1
1. Allardyce
2. Irvine
3. Jose xD
+1
Alladyce to get sacked after he loses to Palace, and then joins Palace. lol
Miranda and Godin, one of the best CB pairing in Europe. Even looking at them separately and the way they defend, its amazing. Still amazes me that Big Phil went with Dante and Luiz instead of Miranda despite him helping Atletico win La Liga and go to CL finals.
+1
It's quite amazing that even the top teams only really have one top CB, and finding two top ones who can partner each other seems nearly impossible.

Chelsea have Cahill, Terry is obviously a long serving pro but he's a little past it. City have Kompany who's been off form for a while and Mangala has just come in, but you wouldn't say they have a world class CB pairing and with Demechelis in the situation, they suffer a little bit.

Mertesacker and Koscielny are an excellent pair but really, Kos is a level ahead. He has more assets in total. United and Liverpool don't have a top CB of note, just good players. Lovren and Skrtel are good pros but you wouldn't say they are at the top of the game.

I don't think there's a team in the world that has that perfect pairing. PSG obviously would've thought they had a great pair before the World Cup, but David Luiz will never reach that level that some people think he will for some reason. He's a big name because of his hair and his goofiness, rather than his performances.
When exactly was Kompany off form?
+4
^I would like to know that too KingLucas...we had the best defense for the past several years with him and last year with his injuries, new manager, change of style of play, and other issues with the defense (demichelis's start that cost us both the CL and the FA Cup), we still managed to finish as the second best defense in the league behind Chelsea.
+1
Tbh , Sakho is better than koscielny , and Lovren is one of the best ball playing CB's. They can form a formidable partnership .
I think most people would disagree with you there Ashup. Koscielny is better than Sakho IMHO, though he's often too aggressive, resulting in clumsy mistakes or needless cards.
+1
Probably just my opinion and the French National Team Manager.
+1
Hummels and Subo are great pair too , when both fit they're just amazing to watch :')
+2
@Dougie, you havn't watched Lovren play if you think he's not up there with the best CB's. I'll grant you Skrtel is not but Lovren absolutely is a top 20 CB in the world atm.
+1
Mate maybe off form is the wrong way of describing it, but the Kompany of 2014 has not been the Kompany of 2012. Little mistakes have crept into his game, like clearing the ball straight to Coutinho to give Liverpool the winning goal last season. That would've lost them the title right there if they didn't get outside help afterwards.

That 2012 campaign, he dominated attacks the entire season. He hasn't done that consistently for a while, there's no denying that.

@Colinmc I'm not talking about top 20, I maybe wouldn't disagree with that. He's the best CB at one of the top clubs, but he isn't up there with the likes of Hummels, Ramos, Cahill, Godin etc.
Milner nominated BORING Milner for ice bucket challenge. LMAO :D
+4
Hahaha...I honestly think it's either Richards or Lescott behind it...
+1
Wouldn't that be fun, Footy. A fellow footballer running a parody account of his slightly more successful/accomplished (ex)team-mate

For those who haven't seen the texts Malky Mackay sent, treat yourself to them here.

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Bvg6Mf2IYAAp3A_.jpg:large

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Bvg6MhSIQAIegib.jpg:large

Seems like Tan had a good reason to fire him after all. Clearly he knew about these messages and very deviously kept them in reserve until Mackay was in the running for another job, and as soon as Palace came calling this week, Tan pulled the trigger.

It's definitely not nice to have your private stuff read by the public, and obviously everyone keeps things private for a reason, but I doubt Mackay will ever get a job at the top again after this. Some of these texts are way over the top. One incident might be forgivable, but it seems like this was constant in these conversations. He does seem like a real c*nt.

As for his comments: "I'm no racist, sexist, homophobe or anti-Semite".

Seems as if you covered all of those quite well in your messages Malky. It's a little ridiculous having to apologize for every type of discrimination in the book.
Suddenly, I have sympathy for Tan. Yes, that's how low Mackay is right now in my opinion.
Wow!
Yeah... I'm not a racist, sexist, homophobe or anti-Semite, but I'd also never sent say stuff like that (even in private), let alone send texts like that. Even if those texts were under stress or made jokingly, the idea of them can only come from a person who's at least a bit of everything he claims not to be.
Behind the scenes at Match of the Day:

http://www.bbc.com/sport/0/football/28875172

Just a 3 minute video, but it's fun to see what's going on before the episode starts. I've been a big fan of the show for years, even though some of the punditry can be questionable (then again, who are we to consider us better pundits than them) at times.
+5
I agree when the pundits are actually knowledgeable its a good show.
Monday Night Football with jamie nd gary is 10 times better. Motd is good for highlights tho
+1
^ this

Jamie is slowly growing on me, huge improvement from last year, you could see the man knew his football but saying what he thought didn't go quite smoothly (especially with the giant highlight tablet). Miles better last Monday, punditry at its finest, cannot wait for City Liv.
I'm a Lineker fan though. He was born for that job, but also happened to be a pretty damn good footballer by accident. I also like MNF, especially Neville's bits, but I don't have *that* much spare time; I spend about 2 hours a day reading about football and watching it at least; too much for a late-night hobby as it is.
Gary Neville is the best pundit of all time. I'm not being funny.

No favoritism, total honesty and above all else, he's intelligent and treats the audience like they're as "football smart" as he is, and let's face it, a lot of idiots watch the show. I haven't seen anyone criticize his punditry, so clearly he's made a great impression on everyone. He should stay in the studio though, match commentary isn't his forte.

I don't mind Graeme Souness either, he always says what's pretty obvious but he rarely says something stupid. Carragher says stupid s**t all the time, but that's maybe because I can't understand him at all.
i rate Carragher way higher than Souness, also special shout out to Pat Nevin ;) love that guy
Lineker is great, his analysis is pretty "meh", but he seems like a personable guy who can really get conversation going.
Gary is the best, Lineker is good as well in my opinion. Between Souness and Carragher, I prefer Souness.
Lol Joey, you do realize Lineker is also called Gary? :) I like Alan as well. But which one? :P
@Dougie27 - C'mon... Carragher isn't hard to understand at all. Especially for those that live in western multicultural nations.

Gary and Carragher get my vote for favourite pundits.
hey guys sorry for bothering again. i need a help in getting the ticket to arsenal vs city this september and all of them from the official website are sold out. so any of you from london/manchester with extra ticket or know how to get one a.s.a.p. please hit me on my wall. thanks.
most expensive player on DF? Leo messi 25.0m ronaldo 25.0m but they aren't the most expensive. Ogbonna sits at a staggering 75.0m.... wo.
+2
His 3 times the player..hence 3 times the price, starts as a defender, but scores every time he attacks..Build a team around him and everyone else will crumble:)
+2
He's my star defender. Expecting big things from him
+4
hahaha with messi/ronaldo's current transfer cost around 200m that means that ogbonna in real life should cost 600m, hot damn.
Messi is actually rated at over €350m. PSG were willing to pay that a year or two ago when Barça were after T.Silva. When you know how much Lionel Messi increased Barça's popularity (and therefore revenue), it's safe to say he's worth more than that, even regardless of his skill.
HE'S BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACK

+36
Facing Man utd in Liverpool red...that boy was born to be a thorn in their side
+11
So scared he is going to make our team implode. But besides that awww yeah.
There are like 5 people pulling on him but he is not giving a single f***.
+15
Balo's face lmao, it's like Bowser and his minions trying to stop Super Mario, it can't happen and Mario knows it. Ohh Balo I have missed you.

The Ironic thing is, there is a badge right on Balotelli's sleeve saying 'Respect' LOL.
Those people wanted his shirt so badly, they should just ask.
+9
The nonchalance in his look. Haha welcome back Super Mario!
+1
Super Mario welcome to Anfield!
+1
cant wait to see him do his "why always me" celebration at OT again ;)
+2
The thing I like about this picture is that you can clearly see the "Respect" badge on Balo's shirt. What irony lol
+1
Best pic lol
+1
I think Liverpool made a smart move by getting him. He will back in Champions league too which is great
His about to s**t on everyone all over again! Glad to have Balotelli back, the English media must be throwing a party somewhere:)
+3
Lol he's always in his own world. he looks a million miles away from the situation

welcome back bibotelli. great talent but not sure if he will be sticking around. seems to drift a lot. he's what 24? already played for inter, ac milan, city and now liverpool.
+1
Taking bets for when he'll leave Liverpool here! Also taking bets for how long it'll take before he'll set his house on fire, crash a car or fight with his teammates or his coach.

I think the guy is great for all teams who don't have him since he brings entertainment. But what makes him different from a guy like Ibra, who's also a crazy mofo, is that Ibra always tries hard and is SO good he's actually worth taking the risk he'll destroy the team. Ibra makes teams a lot better 75% of the time, Balo has never made any team better in the long term.
+1
Got that famous assist to set up Aguero for City's maiden title. Historic moment....

I guess Liverpool didn't like the peace and quiet :P
+1
Ibra is the best, of course, but I disagree Balo does not improve a team. Italy were never going to make 2nd place in the Euros without him, Milan were never going to make CL before his transfer. He scored enough goals for City and was part of that title victory
Getting consistency out of him is the problem
Oh, and since people compare him and Ibra, when aged 24 Ibra was coming from inconsistent times at Ajax, he was not the player he has become later
+1
He scored one goal every four games for City, more than half of them were penalties. And Italy has always had much better strikers than him IMO. Next tournament I expect Immobile instead of him, but Italian managers are insanely bad when it comes to scouting talent. They constantly 'forgot' about Totti, Del Piero and Di Natale too.
Liverpool in talks to sign Balotelli (BBC). They must have got a real taste for troubled strikers.
+1
http://i.imgur.com/3E9FcpQ.jpg

Official with Ayre!

Yeah, this signing is questionable.
+1
Liverpool always have the best strikers, from Rush then Fowler then Owen then Morientes then Torres then Suarez then Sturridge and now we got Balotelli. Hopefully he is as successful as our previous strikers :D
+1
Morientes? I'd actually put him in the El Hadji Diouf, Carrol, N'Gog category

How could you leave out Crouchy? He was pretty good for you guys (except at the beginning) and ofcourse Babel the social networking, photoshopping, Howard Webb loving, genius
+5
I quite liked Morientes at Liverpool tbh, wasn't as big a hit as the others but still was a solid player. Btw Babel was a winger ;)
+2
I think you forgot a few prior to Ian Rush...
^Yeah I skipped Dalglish, Ian St John etc. but I thought i'd only do the PL era :)
