    Don't worry, it'll be all "COME ONE ENGLAND" on the front pages in a few weeks. Gotta get that traffic yo.

    What on earth does it matter to anyone what this guy chooses to legally tattoo on his body, especially when it has a deep meaning rooted in his father's killing. Yesterday he was meeting with disabled football supporters, but the media don't want to run that story, it's too dull, won't get enough clicks and doesn't suit their character assassination aim.
    There's a great thread on Twitter that goes through shit that the British tabloids have said about Sterling. It's ridiculous.

    https://twitter.com/adamkeyworth/sta...18545588502530

    This is a kid we should be celebrating. After having his dad killed, how many other kids would have grown into a life of crime and gang violence? Instead he's one of the best young footballers on the planet, and by all accounts a pretty chill guy. Glad to see that everyone (bar Piers Morgan) have condemned the Sun.

    I love that Piers is trying to get on his moral high horse for this issue. Being the guy most famous for hacking the phones of dead kids and all.

    The Sun is despicable and anyone that buys that rag is either ignorant or a complete piece of shit.

    That second and fourth one are completely ridiculous. He did absolutely nothing wrong (he didn't with any others either). No surprise at the English media producing utter crap.

    Piers really should never take the high ground on anything, but in this case it's hilarious given his fandom over 'the gunners'.

    Like Dave said, cannot believe number 16.

    I blame Order

    Re: General Football Discussion 2017-18

    Completely agree with what has been said tbh. Diabolical coverage from all on Sterling throughout his career. What I will say is it is the older generation on the paper side of things who seem to love these stories. Yesterday for example in my office which is the Star and Express all the paper wanted was to do follow up. Online quickly agreed it was a non-story and moved on to other things.

    Interesting to note how generational the media has become in recent years without most people probably even realising.

    David Beckham taking all the heat off of Sterling before the tournament. What a guy.

    Kenny Dalglish finally knighted.

    Not only is he the greatest Scottish footballer ever, he's an even greater human being and I'm so happy to see him honoured.

    Good to see Jermaine Defoe honoured as well.

    I watched the Kenny film earlier in the year and even though he's a miserable git, everything he did surrounding hillsborough was magnificent and the sign of a special person.

    Re: General Football Discussion 2017-18

    Knighthoods do absolutely nothing for me, but I’m onboard with Sir Kenny. My mum’s side of the family are from Liverpool and they talk about “Kenny” like he’s an uncle I haven’t met yet or something. It’s hard to describe the affection in Liverpool for him after Hillsborough.

    Re: General Football Discussion 2017-18

    I'm fine with Kenny getting a knighthood as it's mainly down to his efforts outside of his sporting achievements that's getting him this recognition. Anybody that does anything to help with charities, disasters and tragedies deserve a hell of a lot of recognition for what they do.

    The Premier League fixtures have been announced. The season kicks off on Saturday 11 August.


    Arsenal have a very difficult start to the season. Manchester City at home and Chelsea away for Unai Emery’s first two Arsenal Premier League games. Looking forward to it. Would rather have the tough games early, get them out of the way.


    Here are the opening weekend fixtures:
    A.F.C. Bournemouth v Cardiff City
    Arsenal v Manchester City
    Fulham v Crystal Palace
    Huddersfield Town v Chelsea
    Liverpool v West Ham United
    Manchester United v Leicester City
    Newcastle United v Tottenham Hotspur
    Southampton v Burnley
    Watford v Brighton
    Wolverhampton v Everton
