After being left out by Puel,  Fonte finally got his chance to play in the San Siro and captained his Lille team to a 3-0 victory over AC Milan: the first time Milan have conceded 3 goals at home in a European game since 2011.

Unfortunately also played for Portugal and lost at home !

Reading the comments from their fans under this tweet is interesting. They mostly seem very excited by the signing even though WBA and Saints fans are telling them he can't run and is overweight.

He was obviously a bit of a hero for them in the past but it seems unlikely he'd have much of an impact now.

Ralph Kreuger's Buffalo Sabres are currently on an 11-game losing streak, they've failed to score in as many games they have won (which is astounding for an Ice Hockey team).

Their squad is full of over-paid, under-performing players that they can't dispose of as nobody will take on the contracts they gave them so are stuck in a ruck.

Sound familiar?

This is what happens when you put a proper soccer person like Kreuger in charge of a team from a completely different sport.

It was never going to work.

Got TalkSport on in background.

Club v country row over Van Dickhead brewing.

I can see a massive fall out on the horizon ending in tears with him refusing to train or play and shithouse his way out of the club. Haha.

Let's hope so.

Cedric marking at the back post on an injury time corner costs Arsenal an away goal in the Europa League...

Arsenal fans loving him on their forums.

He is proper average. Always was, and I was never upset to see him go. We've got a much better player now

I think it just says a lot about Arsenal and where they are now TBH. It's the twilight of the season and they're in the top half on goal difference, in a nothing fight over 9-11th with Leeds and Villa.

Just seen that Richard Dryden has been sacked as assistant coach at Forest Green along with their manager today.

Not sure of the connection but the article says their U18's manager Jimmy Ball has taken over. Wasn't Alan Ball's son, Jimmy ? Wonder if this is his son, seem to remember he a junior player some years (25-30) ago

Yes he is a Jimmy. Red haired too. He was in the same class as our daughter at Hiltingbury Juniors and used to sit next to her.

Just been reading through all the comments from Villa fans on Twitter, sounds like he’s had a really decent season for them, fair play to him proving his doubters like Ralph wrong.

Unfortunate timing that it coincides with being the same day we hear another of our LB prospects McQueen is unlikely to play football again. All the while we get to watch Bertrand looking largely disinterested jogging up and down the wing with no competition to push him for a place in the team.

Really pleased for him! Seems a better option than Bertrand at the moment!

At the moment yes because Bertrand is on his last legs, but he hasn’t been previously and I think the club were probably right in letting him go, for the good of both us and him. Similar situation to Harry Reed. 

The issue is we never really replaced him as a backup.

Wish we bought players that would have put RB as the backup..I guess financially not viable for us. 😄

Those days are long gone. Young ‘rough diamonds’, I.e cheap, is our business model. 

It’s one of the reasons losing Ings is going to be such a hit for us. A proven PL goal scorer aren’t easy to come by, especially for 10-15m

Glad he's doing well, he'd have been a decent player for us this year. I can see why he was sold though. We needed more up front and he was the only viable option we had to raise cash, so from that point it had to happen sadly. I'm sure he also wanted to play regular.

Ideally we'd have kept him around and he would probably have been first choice by now, it was just at the point we sold him Bertrand was still much better and £15-17m for a backup was just too good for a club in our position to say no to.

And, according to the Guardian, Pochettino is in talks to return to Spurs.

Honestly, in any other business, Daniel Levy would be out of a job.

It's all over the news now, BBC, Sky etc now. Obviously something in it.

Apparently Levy has admitted sacking Poch was the biggest mistake in his career. 

I reckon he'll end back up there, by all accounts he's not too happy at PSG.

Comment on the BBC article:

Quote

BBC Sport understands there has been no contact between Tottenham and PSG, who have held talks with Pochettino about their plans for next season.

Levy speaking to the manager before contacting his club. Can anyone believe it of him ?

Man ffs. I've always had a little soft spot for Wrexham and was thinking i'd start following them (as my lower league team - along with Bristol Rovers) under Deadpool's stewardship.

Is there no escaping Les F'ing Reed?
