Equally, when Chelsea got stiffed by the referee in that home Champions League semi-final, second leg tie with Barcelona, what were they going to do – get through to that other Champions League final that was going on that year? I do feel, however, that even when the referee makes an error there will have been other points in the game when your destiny was in your hands, and maybe managers like Klopp and Bilic choose to look at those moments, too. Instead, we were palmed off with a shoddily edited collection of Rooney’s show-pony moments, intercut with stage-managed interviews. Forget the top four – how are they still the second best team in the city? The win took Chelsea back to fourth place, three points above Arsenal, who visit third-placed Manchester City on Sunday, while Huddersfield stay stuck in the basement, six points off second-bottom Fulham. The Welsh wizard left the Saints for Tottenham in 2007. Spent six years in north London before joining Real Madrid in a deal worth £85m. Madrid fans Fabino Mohino and Yago Saez said they spent about 750 euros ($875) apiece on flights and travelled for 20 hours through Barcelona. Happened at Chelsea, and now Manchester City, happened at AC Milan in the 1990s, at Barcelona and at Manchester United, too.
The Gabon striker has left for Barcelona on a free transfer after exactly four years at Emirates Stadium in which he scored 92 goals in 163 games and captained the club to their 14th FA Cup crown. They don’t need me, or anyone else, to point out that a bloke who scored 31 goals last season and has one less than Anthony Martial and Wayne Rooney combined this year, might be worth a place in their team. Liverpool FC boss Jurgen Klopp has gifted a signed jersey and heartfelt personal message to the old Cork club of Irish keeper, Caoimhin Kelleher, after the 23-year-old scored the penalty that won the Reds the Carabao Cup last month. I like the new managers in the league like Jurgen Klopp. Having come through the youth ranks with the Gunners, Cole signed a professional deal with the club in 1989, only to go on and make just one league appearance for the north London club. United’s next manager should make this his priority. Typical journalist – buy Harry Kane and Manchester United’s problems will disappear, forgetting that three parties need to agree before the deal can happen. So, one last time for those still seeing shadows: TOTTENHAM SHOULD NOT SELL KANE TO MANCHESTER UNITED.
Confirmed: evil does still exist. In fact, anybody who scores a goal. If Chelsea had offered £100m for John Stones, Everton would have sold him and no matter how good he turned out to be, I don’t think anybody would argue. How did that work out? From mandatory masks to social distancing, you can now see the measures major airlines are taking on their flights from Liverpool to Jersey to keep you safe. There are of course different fixes. Are we clear? And one more thing. Kane should stay put as Tottenham are going places for all the right reasons. Buy Kane when the midfield. Samuel is saying another big club should buy another player. I’m not saying that would matter to Kane, necessarily, but using your logic, an ambitious player should join Leicester, not Tottenham; and Watford, not Liverpool. Other notable players who have donned the No.11 shirt for Liverpool include Jamie Redknapp and Mohamed Salah. Other notable players who have donned the No.8 shirt for Liverpool include Ian Rush and Jan Molby. He is a lovely player who has worked very hard at his game, against others who may have been born with their gifts, and is all the more admirable for that.
Terry scores via an offside goal in the 98th minute of a 3-2 game, with seven minutes of injury time. Seven minutes is the minimum time to be played, not a limit. Remembered for his time at Arsenal, his time with France, and, of course, his hilariously bad penalty that he botched with team-mate Thierry Henry. Below is one of his many moments of glory – and, for those who just come here for the sport, arguably the best song about cycling ever written. Kane has shown no signs of wanting to leave and definitely not to Manchester United – even more so with the current manager or uncertainty over who they would bring in. We know Kane can thrive in English football. Regarding Kane this is frivolous and mischief making nonsense, and surprise, surprise I read Samuel is a West Ham fan. He’s really not that good – but Samuel was part of that fan club, too.
