    COVID-19 — Coronavirus

    I used to go to Scotland regularly for work, I'm still in touch with a few colleagues, most of whom didn't rate her before the pandemic but think very highly of her now. Like you say she's demonstrated actual leadership and her compassion has really come across. Her presence at the daily...

    Nathan Aké - 2020/21 Performances

    He's going to be a great player for us. Always impressed me when I've seen him play and hoped we would go in for him at some point. Sounds like he has a good attitude, wants to play and knows it won't always be at Centre Back. He's got all the makings of being a great signing for the squad.

    Nicolas Otamendi

    Big fan of how random Inter's transfers are. They love signing a player who is past their best. They remind me of playing champ man back in the day. Just waiting for them to sign Tarribo West on a free...

    It's Quiet thread 14 - 'do one' edition

    For conspiracy theorists like myself, if this is Bartomeu up to his usual tricks of leaking info to the media, this could be seen as Barca paving the way for accepting a large fee for Messi in order to get them out of financial difficulties... Bartomeu didn't let Messi go for free and it was...

    Kickback Podcast With Nedum Onuoha & Vinny

    Just started listening to the Man City podcasts on the official site, I've only listened to the one with Franny Lee so far, which mainly covers his time as Chairman. I'm a bit sceptical about some of his versions of events, but it's an interesting listen and not just a PR exercise, the...

    Love this reference. 'You're here...'

    The Messi Mambo 2020

    Interesting RE the time it would have taken for the case to be heard, that makes sense. I hadn't picked up on Bartomeu's commments... that's unbelievable. Hardly going to make Messi want to stay!

    The Messi Mambo 2020

    I have a similar take on it mate... In a transfer like this, involving a player who has been with one club for his entire career, making that break is a big part of it. A lot of thought goes in to how it is positioned to the fans... Messi's video has already prepared them for his departure, in...

    Keyboard issue on Android

    My issue seems to have resolved itself now, hopefully the same for the others as well. Thanks to Ric et al for the suggestions for temporary fixes!

    Jadon Sancho

    I agree. He's young and English so he's going to be expensive but I've not seen enough from him to justify that sort of fee. It seems like a lot of the hype is based on potential, which can go either way. I don't see him going there and improving them and it doesn't seem a position that they...

    COVID-19 — Coronavirus

    This is so true. Especially as the temperatures get lower and people are less likely to meet outdoors anyway. Also have to laugh that it's fine to sit in a pub full of strangers as long as your group is no bigger than 5 people...

    Keyboard issue on Android

    Ric suggested I use Firefox as an interim fix and that is working well so it's definitely worth doing, but I'm hoping Chrome sort it soon as I much prefer it to the other browsers.

    It's Quiet thread 14 - 'do one' edition

    Aside from the 'leaked' document being weird and clearly faked, it also doesn't make any sense as to why we would have bid for a player who at that time was disputing that he was even under contract at Barca? Also with all the leaks to the media during the Messi saga, I'm sure it would have been...

    It's Quiet thread 14 - 'do one' edition

    Funniest thing I've seen in a long time. Someone's been playing too much FIFA! My personal favourite is the reference to two payments, one payable 'now'. Genuine LOL.

    It's Quiet thread 14 - 'do one' edition

    Completely agree. Chelsea look to have made some great signings but they may take time to settle so it's likely to be a transitional season for them and the others haven't really done anything of note. In an ideal world we'd have all the signings in for pre-season and hit the ground running...

    And Messi's biggest ally in all of this seems to have been Suarez, who has also fallen out with Barca spectacularly and is leaving...

    It's Quiet thread 14 - 'do one' edition

    My take on it is that I think Koeman's approach with Messi will determine if City bid for him this summer. If the two of them get off to a bad start, I'm sure the media will be all over it and it's going to play out in public, which won't be good for anyone and might make them more willing to...

    It's Quiet thread 14 - 'do one' edition

    It'd be a shame if Messi had a falling out with Koeman or a high profile player in training when he starts back. It might make his position there untenable...

    Ian Brown

    I had similar interactions with him. Brown was a regular customer at a shop I worked in as a student, he was always friendly to the staff and seemed down to earth. If other customers went up for a picture he'd always oblige and have a chat. I don't agree with his tweets, I'm not sure what he's...

    It's Quiet thread 14 - 'do one' edition

    I thought it was interesting that he listed their last three European failings in the interview. His resentments have clearly been building for a long time! Like you say, he wants to at least be challenging and he clearly doesn't feel that's going to happen at Barca.
