So what you are saying is Fellaini starting at the weekend and Pogba on the bench confirmed? :p
Pogba just joined the team on Tuesday. After having spent the last few weeks on vacation. I doubt he is in playing shape.

As for my own dear Crystal Palace, I will just quote another supporter from a 1-2 years ago: "That midtable mediocrity that we always wanted is finally here!"

Fantastic news. The future looks very bright with Shaw, TFM, Pogba, Martial, Rashford and hopefully Depay and Bailly.
Depay has some skills, but damn Mou needs to knock him into shape, this season, or he's bust.



Hopefully he was just a victim of LVG and his policing of freedom/showboating.

Do you think Mata is gonna stay?

Reports are suggesting that he is unhappy and we are close in buying him.
In the end I think is best for both parts that he leaves but I can definitely see Mourinho giving him a shot this weekend if Lingard isn't fit and then humiliate him once again when he fails to perform. It wouldn't be the first time Mourinho sacrifices an early game to publicly prove his point (if the board for some reason doesn't want to sell Mata for example).

Unless Mourinho changes his philosophy Mata doesn't fit with him at all. Mata needs to be free to create and he's known for drifting when trying to defend and that is a no-no under Mourinho's system. If only Man United hadn't sold Di Maria last year, he's the perfect winger in a Mourinho system (which is where Mata would play at United like he did under Mourinho at Chelsea).

Depay has some skills, but damn Mou needs to knock him into shape, this season, or he's bust.

Hopefully he was just a victim of LVG and his policing of freedom/showboating.
Mourinho doesn't mind showboating and freedom IF the same player shows the same desire to defend. Ozil was free to do everything he wanted at Real because he also helped to defend. Kevin De Bruyne on the other hand...

He needs to show his ability against a decent defence. He looks fine in matches against shit teams but that's not good enough.

We'll have to see how he gets on this season when given his chance. He also needs to be a little less greedy in front of goal.

I really hope Liverpool manage to break into the top 4 but years of seeing the team pick up a draw in a game we should otherwise be winning leads me to think 5th is more realistic

Letter sent to #charlton season ticket holder warning him about speaking badly of club on social media...



Disgusting, I would just take my ticket back.

Holy crap! That really is PC gone mad.

I mean does anyone know what the comments were? If they were death threats, racism or something seriously bad that should be handed to the police and the person banned from the stadium. If it is just someone blowing off steam, some vulgar language and upset then this letter is downright offensive and the club should be ashamed.

Provided that Rooney plays as little as possible, the league title is very likely :p

Have Leicester actually bought a DM to replace Kante? If they got someone, i'd bump them up.

They bought Mendy. He's a DM. Don't know how good he is though.

What did the guy actually say?
Apparently he had a go at the board/ owner for a few months. Nothing crazy like threats etc.

@Johncrossmirror
Charlton have put out a statement confirming they've written to the fan. Remarkable times.


Individual has constructive meeting with club regarding abusive behaviour
The club can confirm that they sent a letter to one supporter relating to their continued inappropriate behaviour towards members of staff on Charlton’s official social media accounts and foul and abusive language captured on stadium cameras.

No other letters have been sent to supporters. A letter was sent to this individual as it was relating to a particular set of circumstances.

I call bullshit on the camera thing.

Hmm...maybe it'll be like Konte again and he'll be great out of nowhere. I'd probably have gone for Lucas.

Well, it's Charlton and they've been behaving like knobs for a while now. Constant protests from the fans for the owners to sell up, and they bought Northampton's best player. Bastards.

Charlton met with the supporter and because 'he appeared sincere in his apology... he was not asked to sign an Agreed Behavioural Contract.'

Shooting themself in the foot atm.

Their phone lines have been down due to a 'technical issue', lol.
