Yet another man of the match performance from the Rash after coming on as sub.... How can this lad be on the bench?

..ever been to Puerto Escondido, Jules? Between there and Zipolite for the most chilled area on the west coast.

I havent - the West Coast does look more like it. Was really disappointed with Mexico City - that stretch of slums from the airport to the city centre is bloody grim! Anyway, good time to go to Mex given the Peso so cheap. But give me Brazil anyday.

Two weeks in Mexico at the end of August. Ridiculously, it's cheaper to go there than Europe.

And there's a reason for that. The hotel I'm staying at is lovely, food and booze are great, but the main problem by some margin are the 30 and 40-something American couples who think they're on some kind of spring break - there is EDM and RnB being pumped out everywhere and the swim-up bar is a massive no-go area - leathered yanks shouting their fucking heads of about bollocks.

I've also convinced myself they're all Trump voters just so I can despise them more.

Cancun/playa del carmen? Fucking hell mate - could have told you it was full of trash - if only you asked

How Trump, an individual who has milked the establishment for all it's worth for decades, can be held up as some talismanic leader of the cause is quite beyond me.


Exactly Millsy - shows what a bunch of thickets his voters are.

I play one computer game every year or two given family and work commitments - Deus Ex is this year's game for me!

Ordered the new Deus Ex - weekend sorted

Yeah sorry for the repeat - dodgy phone. I spent a week in Chianti and week in Regello. Chianti has some of my favourite restaurants in the world.. Simple trattorias serving pasta, steak and the like. You can prob drive there in about an hour - prob worth doing so at least once imo - let me know if you want recs there. I know you dont to hear it but was underwhelmed with Regello (after Chianti). Went a couple of times into Florence... Main finding was a sandwich shop called panini toscani. Worth using tripadvisor while you're there - the app finds restaurants near you. At the end of the day its Italy and you cant go very wrong with restaurants - was there six weeks this summer and didnt have a bad meal.

Have just got back from Amsterdam and am off to Tuscany in September so having to give it a miss sadly.

Where you going in Tuscany Ed?

Regello.

Looking forward to it.

Was in Regello this summer - bit sparse on restaurant front though you can load up on cheap designer gear at the Mall. Osteria de Giusti and Archimedes my pick of the restaurants i went to - Chianti it is not though.

anyone care to tell me why when they've just spent a gazillion quid on Pogba they are playing Valencia in defence?

He's fast, strong and can cross so he should be a good full back. However it'll go wrong at some point - he's got no left foot and will get caught out when facing his own goal with the ball. Valencia's still a far better option than that Italian lad - he runs like jam.

Think it was a case of he played well in pre-season (when Darmian was on holiday after the Euros?). Darmian isnt a bad full back imo.

Cant help it Boring - am excited like a wild monkey right now.

I cannot believe the amount of cunts making ready reckoners of the season after just one fucking game. Yes you know who you are. And yes. You are cunts.

Still feels like a different season for United Derm....(as it should be after all the money spent)

Man Utd were struggling to beat the likes of Bournemouth last season - looking very encouraging for us Reds imo smile

Article on the upward spiral in salaries and fees...."The going rate apparently for a “top kid” in today’s climate is actually £40,000 a week and a four-year contract – around £8m in total."

First game of the season with a new manager and they still can't fill Maine Road.

Im a tad surprised City are such clear favourites - hardly impressed by their signings this summer (manager aside)

Buzious is brilliant an all.

Ah Buzios..... The times i had there. What a place that is.

Jericoacoara in the north of Brazil is my favourite beach in the world (was voted top beach in the world on Globe Trekker if you ever saw that).... The 4 hour drive from Fortaleza (the nearest big city) keeps the hoards at bay.

As much as I like Brazil (a lot), friend of mine was shot there a few months back - makes me very wary.

Wally, if you're making out that Copacabana is one big long stretch of process sticking out a leg, they have cleaned it up big time - should have seen it first time I went in 1999 lol.

The odds were that he would be in the team every game the following season. There was almost certainly more to it (i.e. greed) in my view.

Breaking news Jules, Santa Claus is not real. Just while we're on the subject.

Lol bugger off.

Ed, how many 17-18 year olds you seen who demand a first team place at one of the biggest clubs in the world, and threaten to leave otherwise. Big load of bollox. He was no Messi at that age.

Don't see how any young player with his head screwed on couldn't understand why he wouldn't be playing every game in his first season at the age of 17-18.

Ayew from Swansea to West Ham for 20.5m was one I found hilarious: 1) never heard of him, 2) he came to Swansea on a free transfer last summer, scored 12 goals and is now worth 20.5m hahaahaha.

Undoubtedly this is all going to end in tears.

On Pogba what I detest is the mercenary way he left United a few years - didnt show us a bit of loyalty.

Jules, please tell me your tongue is firmly in your cheek with that last statement.

You're right - its fucking laughable to expect any loyalty... He did same to Le Havre. Anyway, just how stupid was it of Pogba to allow this scumbag agent to include the clause giving the latter such a large percentage?
