Apparently David de Gea likes Slayer!

Anyway, thought we should move on, though there is a specific Euro 2020 thread.

He's just taken his doppelgängers out with classic Kane assault and distract (pointing at some other 'incident' so the ref doesn't spot his blatant red card thuggery)

Fucking hell. Can't we check if the Zagreb manager is out of prison yet before appointing Fonesca?

5th place in the league and a Europa League semi final the following year.

Perfect Spurs manager.

The bloke who was recently replaced by the guy they just fired. Interesting choice!

Xhaka to Roma for 15mil apparently a done deal. SEEYA

Mike Parry is mad about Everton's possible new manager:

Quote
If Rafa Benitez is appointed Everton manager I'm out of there. As a 60 years Evertonian season-ticket holder I will not accept a reject Liverpool manager at Goodison. It's a joke. The legends Bill Shankly and Harry Catterick will be sharing a glass of bemused whisky tonight...

Steve Bruce played both sides three times. Did Newcastle fans ragequit when he joined them because he'd managed Sunderland? Did Villa fans because he'd managed Birmingham? I thought changing your team was the ultimate taboo? Besides, every season Everton fans say they're going to quit supporting us because it's the WORST SEASON EVER. They never do.

PS Martinez is not coming back, it's clickbait. There is no rational reason why he would.

Thanks to Spurs for making Celtic's managerial recruitment look competent by comparison. As it happens, both clubs are effectively owned by reclusive billionaires and run by deluded egomaniacs. Who cares about a new RB, all I want is professional governance.

Rafa's a great manager.
When he's given time he ALWAYS makes teams better.

Everton don't deserve him.

They deserve Tony Pulis at best.

So many footballs it's hard to know if we've already had this tragic dream-like own goal from the Haiti goalie:

I will walk away from Everton if they appoint Rafa.

Some things are more important than some Eurasian paedophiles wanting to feel like a big man.

Every time I log on to the Spurs forum I look at the news has somehow got even worse.

Crap manager and a massive cunt. I'll accept one, but not both!

They're getting a long way down that wishlist.
Christian Gross will be up next.

Just think, there were some IDIOTS* on here who confidently predicted that they already had the new guy in place when they binned Mourinho.

Yeah, he already ruined one of my teams. I don't want that cunt ruining another one. Of course, if Steve Bruce hadn't left, that would never have happened, so fuck Steve Bruce.

Anyway, he hasn't been confirmed, Everton are still managerless, so placate your mammaries.
