    Mark Brights commentary is comical, makes loads of daft wee noises throughout the game. Penalty shootout with ivory coast and Algeria the now.

    Looking forward to the Madagascar Tunisia game at 8, Madagascar's first time in the competition and in the quarters

    So many clubs but always a handful on the pitch and just checked, 22 goals in 42 caps for England. Should have played far more and his scoring record says so. Seems like a decent big *. Funniest thing he said.....

    Very rarely see African teams keeping shape and tend to go Gung ho at times.

    Atalanta will play their home CL ties at SAN Siro because of work to their own ground. Inter and Milan fans Curva Sud and Curva Nord are going bonkers. I find that totally strange considering they share a stadium.:43:

    We really need to be signing a few of these Algeria players, Bounedjah and Belaili are cracking players and shouldn't cost much.

    Should see if Brendan will do us a solid and sell us Ndidi. Obviously tongue in cheek but I think he's a great player.

    Can't work out if Alex Iwobi is quality or garbage, such a mixed bag, rapid and a great athlete, but prone to being poor technically. Weird he plays central for Nigeria and wide for Arsenal too.

    Watched a wee video of him and other's saying about how the "freak" abuse proper got to him. Actually felt bad about it..

    Duisburg drew 1-1 with Stoke at home. Game finished with the whistle and Stoke manager Nathan Jones said they pulled a trophy out of nowhere and went for penalties. Something Jones said they knew nothing about and they were already running late for their flight home. So to save time Jack Butland took all 5 penalties, scoring 3, as did Duisburg. So to settle things Nathan Jones told Duisburg to keep the trophy because it would cost too much to book it on to the flight. I think this is brilliant and a great football story.:giggle1:

    The quality in this African nations final is * dire, remind me who was it that said an African nation would win the World Cup by a certain date?

    Watching Erik playing for Midtyyland (spelling) the now, he's their captain, always liked him and felt he was bombed out and let go too soon, not seeing anything I didn't already know with his lack of pace etc.
