Incredible really, you look at the area around the crash, it could have come down anywhere and only killed the pilot, but came down exactly where there were a bunch of cars sitting in traffic.

And the pilot is still alive! How is that even possible?

Alli showed Mason exactly how to be a goal-scoring midfielder by getting beyond the striker. Mason and Dier huffed and puffed, but with no Eriksen to link the play it felt like their was always a 20 yard gap between the midfield and forwards.

Not sure Wanyama is the answer, and certainly not for 20m+. Lamela's confidence looks completely shot, and if we can get 15-20m we should snap.

Can't believe how much i'm looking forward to the EL so Carroll, Pritchard, Alli (and to a lesser extent Trippier and Bentaleb - what is going on there??) get a chance to stake their claims for a first team spot. Given how long it took Poch to give Kane his chance last season, i'm not holding my breath any of them will see serious first team action this side of Christmas.....

Yeah it's redic, literally for miles around there are just fields and he crashes on the road... Apparently there are tons of missing people who could of been sitting roadside and caught up in the fireball

i dunno we kept selling people and bringing people in who arent as good. we're poor man's arsenal 2005-12.

im hopeful that the coffers are not bare and that provisions were made for this when we were bringing in PL money. should be able to spend ourselves out of league 1 at any rate.

Leeds had some pretty horrible "fans" of their own there. The drinking started around 8am when the tournament kicked off and went all day. Singing nonstop. If I hear Super Leeds United one more sign I'm gonna lose it.

Tied Arsenal 2-2 in the semi's and won on PKs. Lost to Leeds 1-0 in a good final.

Real winners were Cosmos and Real Madrid who combined forces to start drinking early upon realizing their teams were ****, and signing their heads off and going on in Spanish about a song that says they're crazy in the head and they smoke marijuana. The latter could certainly be smelled during the semi's and final.

Real real top day out. My 3rd year doing it and always a great day. If any of you are in NYC find your local supporters club and ask to play next year


Looks like the Dirty Leeds tag also applies to their supporters then.

Owner stops putting money in, people of Wigan go back to watching rugby, football club returns to the obscurity from where it came.

Yup and has a history of using them as well, his medical people will just be 1 or 2 step ahead of the testers.
