Re: English Football 2015-16

It is literally a cold, rainy Tuesday night in Stoke. Not happening.

I said I'd be ok losing 7-0 if no one got hurt....4-0 with 2 injuries seems to be splitting the difference.

Might be able to add a bit to this.

Brisbane up until about 2013 were the standard bearers of the Australian league. Big crowds, financially sound, by far the best team on the pitch.

They got bought out by the Indonesian Bakrie group which has run the club into the ground, not paid players, staff etc... Club is a rabble off the pitch

Brattan appealed for and got a release from his contract to become a free agent because of unpaid superannuation. He was definitely a a required player in the eyes of Brisbane, and actually has a bit of talent.

He is obviously never going to make it at City long term, but a career at Championship level seems pretty attainable. Manchester City have feeder clubs in the USA and in Australia, so these types of signings are going to be pretty common going forward using the loan system as a source of revenue long term.

Not sure where he will fit in at Bolton but I can't see him being that far out of place relative to a talent like Massimo Luongo in the league. Hope he does well.

Such a great moment. So much mouth from the jug eared bastard, then cowers like a girl as soon as Di Canio moves an inch towards him.

Joel Campbell, Chambers, Debuchy, Gibbs, Iwobi, Bielik, Flamini and a couple more youngsters

Can't watch the game live, but I hope I can get a spoiler free place to download the game from. Prolly rojadirecta
Here's hoping

I think it's just like a really good gif or vine. It doesn't matter how much you watch it, it's still awesome.
