God I felt bad about the cathro era. Really didn't want brainless fitba men to be vindicated, a successful cathro could've precipitated some new thinking in Scottish fitba.

Stevie May's back in the spfl with Aberdeen, he's done fuck all/been injured since he left but could see him bring a good signing for the dandy dons.

Hello! And yes, positively Cantona-esque from Pedro. Not quite in the same league as Mad Vlad, but everyone's got to start somewhere.

Another easy Champions League group for Celtic, I see. And more opportunities to hate on Neymar and Dani Alves. And Arjen Robben.

this is an actual proverb weirdly enough. it rung a bell so i gave it a wee google. it's arabic, referenced in the title of a truman capote book (he apparently got it from andre gide), and jose mourinho has previously used it in a press conference a couple years ago, so maybe it's more popular in portugal

Barnes was officially named as manager of Tranmere Rovers on 15 June 2009, with Jason McAteer assisting him.[41] He got off to a disastrous start, with Tranmere only winning three of their first fourteen games. During their time at Tranmere, Barnes and McAteer were allegedly dubbed "Dumb and Dumber" by the Tranmere players.[42] On 9 October 2009, Barnes was sacked by the club six days after a 5–0 defeat at Millwall and a run of just two wins from eleven league games.[43] He has since applied to become the manager of the Rwandan national team with Stephen Garside as his Youth Team Coach.[44]
