or, sort of.

Just gave a rather large fistpump for Mirallas' goal just then.

Funny how you have hidden allegiances. Although Big Sam is a twonk, obviously.

FIFA is a joke.

Why is Hodgson voting for Mascherano?! Is he an idiot?!

Has everyone with Player been picking their favourite Murph goal so far?
at 15:24 7 Jan 2015

Gotta be the 1st Forest goal (what a first touch), or the Blackpool goal (more for Bishop's run being its assist really...)

Honourable mentions for the Cardiff goal (obviously), the header vs Bournemouth and the 2nd Brentford goal.

Scored some corkers, I only counted 4 tap ins.

Gerrard

This is the type of story I usually don't give a flying fvck about, but I've not seen it mentioned. He doesn't want to be a squad player at Liverpool - "It simply came down to the fact that the idea of becoming a squad player didn't excite me or motivate me." So he goes to the MLS, where, yes, he will probably play as often as he wants. But why would that motivate you more than playing, say, 70% games at Liverpool?

I mean, the money angle is obvious, but not one article I've read has wondered why he hasn't moved to Europe. Surely there's a whole range of good clubs that would take him and consider him an important player? Just seems like he's getting off very lightly for what is an obvious money-spinner.

Seems to have a genuine unalloyed affection for the club, which is endearing.

Surprised this hasn't been posted already given how closely it's watched on here

but this is interesting-ish from the Guardian, on Brentford. Sounds like quite the project.

http://www.theguardian.com/football/blog/2014/dec/27/brentford-buzz-bee-mark-war

Suggests they're trying some Moneyball-style approach, rather vague on details. Suppose that's just the standard in football recruitment now, everyone will need to catch up. But there's always going to be a place for just knowing good players and characters and knowing they'll fill a role - seems to be how Mick recruits.
