Internazionale agree loan deal with Manchester United for Alexis Sánchez

Real shame that didn't work out for them.

Their attacking options behind Rashford and Martial are really awful; Lingard, Mata, Daniel James who had 4 goals in the Championship last year and 17-year old Mason Greenwood. Their only midfielder of any quality is Pogba. Not getting top 4 this year would quite honestly be a massive failure at this point.

Just had a house move fall through that was close to its final stages because the seller changed their mind. After several months and me racking up solicitors costs, chartered surveyors and mortgage fees not to mention wasting months of our time.

Has this ever happened to anyone ? Seems the process is out dated and in need of regulation.

Btw before anyone asks this was nothing to do with my comments about Bolton yesterday. If Margot Robbie turned up at my front door demanding that she milk me like a cow I’d still want Bolton to disappear from existence

My wife bought some Abbot and Costello CDs as a present for her father a few years ago. It wasn't clear from the website whether they shipped to Ireland so she sent an email to enquire. She received one back from someone called Costello so she wrote back to him to tell him that her Dad loved them and asked if he was a relation. Turned out it was Lou Costello's son and he was delighted that someone that far away was still enjoying his father's comedy.

Maybe you're having a bad day Top Gun, but I completely disagree with you here. A football club formed in 1874, founder members of the football league in 1888, a club with a long and rich history. It would be a great shame to see them go under.
Good luck to the club and their supporters in finding a solution to their current predicament.
Also very sad to hear another famous old club and past FA cup winners Bury have been expelled from the League.
With the obscene amounts of money flying around the top echelons of the game it is deeply depressing.

Must admit I share bromley’s (and others) attitudes towards Bolton and Bury. They’re both long-time clubs, and Bolton had Nat Lofthouse play for them. They mean a lot to their local communities. Good luck to them both.

Kind of a wash. He was a huge loss for us, even with his attitude and Mkhitaryan is pretty much of a waste. It's plainfully obvious why they were so eager to get rid of him.

Although the money they spent on Sanchez's wages and his lack of output was gratifying. Personally, I liked seeing Sanchez himself fail.

I'm always nervous before a NLD. Even during our Invincibles era. Anything can and does happen in a derby. That said, I expecting no less than a draw. I don't think we are at the stage where we should expect a win. During our invincible days, the derbies usually went 'win at home, draw away', once in a while 2 wins.

I always thought Arsenal fans were a more urbane and settled than a lot of other fans but this season makes me think a lot of fans are totally past the point of reason with this 'Emery out' sentiment I've seen on online articles in the comment section. That is nuts! Totally unrealistic to expect a turnaround given everything that Emery has gone through (new to a club and country and culture, inheriting a side that was in a downsprial, no money, etc.). Bonkers to expect after a season it should be all well and good. Especially going to a European final in many years. I'm tilting to the Old Man of Hoy view of things the more I see these comments.

This bit made me laugh

Inter will pay £175,000 of Sanchez’s £390,000 weekly salary

Less than half :1laughter: :1laughter:

You clearly dislike him enough to exaggerate the problems about him. He has had plenty of good games. Prone to bad errors, I accept that. But not as bad as you try make out.

Quite right. But it can be disappointing. I was hoping to be enlightened about the latest in the Brexit fiasco but ... nada. (American Gooner probably hasn't heard about it yet but even so ...)

No it will all go well. Take back the empire - instill a little bit of discipline into those bloody foreigners. Taking back India and Pakistan on 1 November is Boris’ aim. The rest will quietly comply. I think Hong Kong might take a while but Boris in the underground bunker, smoking cigars, making speeches on the radio and a cognac at night. Simple plan for a simple man.

I agree but staggeringly many people in the UK think this is good.

Just listened to a caller on James O’Brien who said he was happy that Boris was lying to the country about proroguing parliament.

My cousins mrs is sharing petitions on Facebook to stop parliament interfering with Johnson’s plan.

Many people think all this chaos is going to improve their lives. :8surprise:

Not the easiest of groups but we should get through it.

Eintracht Frankfurt
Standard Leige
Vitoria Guimaraes

Getting back to the final should be the main goal.

They don’t tell us what to do.

That’s the biggest lie about the whole thing.

If you think the government isn’t in charge of every single major aspect of our lives as it stands currently your kidding yourselves.

The "We don't want Brussels telling us what to do." iargument is deeply flawed. Britain was clearly one of the most influential members of the EU and when it comes to the big decisions it is down to individual governments. The Remain campaign failed miserably to deal with that issue during the referendum campaign.

I find the whole situation both worrying but also very sad. A hard Brexit seems inevitable and the fallout will be severe and long-lasting.

I think they did a bad campaign but I don’t think brexiteers care about facts, they are largely a xenophobic trope not interested in details. They have been sold a 20 year lie that everything wrong in their lives is because of immigration and they can’t see beyond it.

I’ve read the list of stuff we objected to and the EU forced on us and believe me if you listed them here us forumites all would have voted FOR all of them. For example we voted againest airline passengers getting compensation for delayed flights. I mean wtf

I find the subject immensely depressing and sad.

In my view, the whole Brexit agenda has been foisted upon us by an elite group of very rich and influential toffs, many of whose ancestors came over on the boat with Willie the Conq. This thing has been brewing for years. These are people who don't need Europe - indeed they need for nothing. They have never experienced deprivation in any form and they have no fear whatever of 'consequences'. They thrive on uncertainty; it's an engine of prosperity for those in a position of financial strength who can take advantage of the opportunities a broken economy will offer. All they fear is transparency in the form of what they see as unwarranted governmental intrusion into their financial dealings and holdings, for which the EU has been pressing for some time now.

As TG says, by subtly moving the focus over a number of years onto immigration, foreigners, austerity and what they term as a non-elected legislature - as if they themselves have ever been elected - they have shaped the debate, convincing vast areas of this island nation that the old enemy - Europe - is at the bottom of all our problems. They have fanned the flames to the point where it's now a curious alliance of the wealthy, the elderly, the under-educated and the under-privileged (brutal but in essence, true) who now carry the fight.

Sadly, I don't think this thing can be stopped. More worryingly, I can't see how the UK can be mended.

Apologies if I offend anyone with this view.
