Got caught in the surge of Derby County fans heading south for the game. Was sort of scary to pull into Newport Pagnell services and find the joint surrounded by a huge crowd of bellowing fans. I know that the majority are just normal people out for the day but I found the whole situation kind of tense. Plenty of them drunk on the tube at 12am too.

real madrid third kit designed by yohji yamamoto. idk how to feel about the dragon. when inter had a dragon on their jerseys i thought it looked whack.

Image

this is how the letters and numbers are gonna look. i don't understand how people hated last seasons lettering on the jerseys but like these new ones. this looks way worse. looks kind of like some old school germany kits tbh. not feeling the pink line either. maybe i'll get more into it later.

I really hated last season's Real Madrid lettering. It looked like the crap number plates suburban rude boys put on their saxos to impress their friends revving in wickes car park

france is gonna surprise everyone. i see them making the final. just wish evra doesn't start. no merit what so ever and i just don't like him. dinge-sakho-varane-debuchy is solid with matuidi-cabaye-pogba ahead of them.

@Bhajz

idk about that without ribery


i think that the team could still do well without him. obviously he is a great player who can always have some great moments but last WC he was one of the few players who really let the nation down with their attitudes (along with nasri who's been left out of the squad - and some others). If the team can play together without many disagreements i think they could be strong. Maybe not quite final contenders but if they play to full potential i could definitely see semi-final for them. But they are quite an unpredictable team so i don't want to jinx anything! A dark horse for sure though.

Good to see lots of people/companies in positions of relative power in the football world standing up against Blatter and the FIFA corruption. About time really.

when it comes to football adverts this is the best


and in reply to bjhaz, ribery was shit this season so he would only be taking the starting spot from someone like Griezmann who was actually good this year and has a high workrate

Pretty sad that the first goal of the tournament was an OG by the home team...
