Arsenal haven’t played a match since the transfer window closed.

A manager will only ever rotate a goalkeeper during a cup game and never a league game. If you a reserve goalkeeper at a top club you have more chance of playing in the Champions League then against a bottom on the table league side you will beat easily.

Every team has a physio who's male, around 40 years old with shaved head and slightly below average height.

Even after the final round of fixtures and the season drawing to a close, Everton will still have a game in hand.

Goalkeeper tips long range effort round the post = great save
Goalkeeper actually holds onto it = save for the cameras

it’s not as much a feeling but more of a prediction, with next 2 transfer windows, ETH will get rid of either the Portuguese gang or English gang, with Portuguese looking more likely. I would love Bruno to stay at United for long.

He'll get rid of both and then replaces it with the Dutch contingent.

Three minutes is the only acceptable amount of added time at the end of a match. Anything more or less is met with a strong reaction by the crowd/commentators

Despite the reputations of Super Agents like Raiola and Mendes, whenever you hear of an incredible contract being negotiated for a player it is almost always done by the players parents.

Like Ezequiel Garey, Nicolas Gaitan, and Oliver Torres before him, Sven Botman is an imaginary footballer created by journalists to pad out their transfer rumour mill reports.

Whenever a GK makes an incredible world class save resulting in a goalmouth scramble. The attacking team player will completely mis-kick the ball in the follow up and the defending team will clear it

Morata scored a hattrick in the game between Juventus and Atletico yesterday but no one knows for what team

Any United player who selects a shirt number above 25 is guaranteed to flop

A team promoted to the PL after having been absent for a long time is guaranteed to win their first home game back.

Scoring more than the opponent guarantees you victory, not dribbling more, not passing more. Scoring more does
That's because while all these greats excelled at dribbling forwards, Hazard's superpower was dribbling backwards. Not his fault that the opponent's goal is the other way
I think his point is that a dribbling is only worth as much as the purpose it serves. In German there is an phrase called "breadless art", meaning something fancy looking, but ultimately without (much) profit and it immediately comes to mind when you for example watch the WC videos that were linked here to show off Hazard's greatness. Countless dribblings, but most of them in no mans land / away from goal / followed by a back pass that reset the tension or taking on one too many and very little in terms of genuinely advancing the attacking move in a crucial way.
My weird football feeling for today is that Germans don't have a sense of Hazard.

These guys are all pretty knowledgeable about football (maybe not so much Kaiser :wenger:), but these takes are just bad, both misunderstanding the nature of the actions involved and the context of the teams he was playing in. It seems like the staple German view of Hazard.

At Chelsea, players are loaned to progressively worse clubs/leagues from age 18-26 until they eventually leave on a free, never to be heard from again.

I had no idea that Cavani’s name is EdiNson and not Edison until the other day. Say it out loud (both first and surname)…it does not even roll off the tongue smoothly!
