The football discussion thread

As the response to the idea was fairly positive let's give it a go. Think of it as the Alfaowner equivalent of the 606 phone in on Radio 5.

As a starting point i'd like to mention Nemanja Vidic. He's managed to damage not just one but three knee ligaments and is out for the season and possibly longer. I know he's a dirty red and I'm not but I reckon he's the second best defender in the EPL (after Kompany obviously) and I wouldn't wish such a career threatening injury on anyone. I hope he gets back to his best as soon as possible.

That said, it's open to the group. Who's your team's best player? Is your manager a ****? Who should you sign? Should Bobby Ball be the England manager?

I'm a fan of Tony O'shea, got carried away at a exhibition match charity auction and paid 65 for his England shirt it was for a good cause though. Anyway he's a all round nice guy so like to see him do well.

Anyway back to football I can't believe my Tractor boys actually won today

Paul Jewel good manager or not?

Just thought I'd better check in after all the shameless self-promotion links I keep seeing around the place!

Very decent comment kb. Misguided about Kompany, naturally, although he's very good.

Our best player ought to be Rooney, flashes at the weekend but he needs more service and better quality around him. On recent form, I'd have to say Nani.

I'm gullible, Gibbo. I thought it was advertised on the label.

Yaya Toure a very lucky boy to stay on the pitch? Not once but twice? Wonder if video evidence will get him?

There wasn't much to the first one, but if Rooney had done it - he'd definitely be off and it'd be all over the papers about his ill-discipline and lack of control.

Oh be'ave yourself Jim, Rooney has got away with all sorts in the past. He's a dirty little scrote and always will be.
