Messi has won a record 6th Ballon d'Or, his stats from last season were brilliant.

Classy as ever, Ronaldo didn't turn up to the awards ceremony as it was clear either Messi or Van Dijk would win it.

I didn't realise we only need to finish 3rd. 😮

Jesus - England really have no excuse for not progressing.

 

Still, I don't feel its a given we will beat either Czech Rep or Croatia. We will have to play well and keep mistakes to a minimum. Any complacency and they can still do us.

 

Finishing 2nd in the Group gives us a much easier path anyway 😉 

The winner of our Group D plays 2nd place from the insane Group F of Portugal, Germany and France. 

The 2nd place of our group plays the 2nd place of Group E of Spain, Sweden and Poland......

How come Sheff wed’s owner appears to be getting rodgered for selling the stadium to himself but it was declared ok for Derby? Not read into it but that’s how it looks on the face of it....

The Sheff Wed owner doesn’t sit on the EFL board. Mel Morris does/did

My own interpretation is that Derby bought their own stadium, and then spent the money.

Sheffield Wednesday spent the money, and then a year later bought their own stadium to try and cover up the shortfall, but recorded it as being sold the year before.

Both are dodgy to me, but Sheff Wed literally tried to con the EFL by fudging the books.

Yes I think this is it; I read it has something to do with the year they put the sale through their accounts, although I can't find the piece now.

Also Derby are being looked into again so that's not necessarily over.

I don’t think Derby, Reading and Aston Villa are out of the woods yet. Think they are anxiously looking at the Wednesday case.

"Bamford is roundly booed for his slightly over-the-top reaction." 😂

He just can't help himself, can he.

From the Huddersfield v Leeds game, which I'm not sure I actually want Leeds to win even if it helps us.

    • I think it's because they are rearranged games rather than part of a midweek fixture list as to why they arent on the red button this time. Although cant explain the other weeks.
    • I'm no lawyer or accountant or anything akin to that but this seems pretty important to me and in how I judge that, even should they be otherwise abiding by the laws, they are acting in a way to circumvent them to keep spending an unsustainable amount of money for an attempt at short-term advantage. The whole reason the rules exist is to stop clubs from doing that and it seems realistic to me to expect that even in the case where there is some loophole around the rules as they are written should be dealt with in the same way as they deal with people not abiding by the rules. The intent by clubs like Derby to record a reasonable income vs. their outgoings by selling their own stadium to themselves (and in the case of Birmingham, literally making a company called 'Birmingham City Stadium Ltd' to sell it to) is surely an attempt to bypass the mistakes they've made in not abiding by the rules to try and maintain whatever financial advantage they have over other clubs. The laws may not be written to the letter but the act of operating unsustainably needs to be able to be tackled regardless of how many ways the laws are worked around.

    • Why is it that we seem to be the only team that isnt on red button all the time, surely this should be equal?
    • Have we fallen out with Sky? We haven’t been on for quite a few games in a row on Tuesdays
