I'm the furthest thing from a football purist you could get. Never saw the enjoyment in Barca's tiki taka days and passing the ball for no real reason.

I'm not a big football purist but I don't think you can say the majority of Pep's Barcelona was passing the ball with no reason.

Exactly. Pep once famously said 'I hate all this tiki taka for no reason'. Barca's style was purposeful. Prod and probe to find a way through by passing it, if there is no way through, go back through the team and try again. Plus, it knackered the opposition out by constantly chasing shadows.

As for Arsenal's 'pass pass pass' game around the same time...

Ironic, given that The IT Crowd is the fourth funniest thing that prick has written.

There's a fine line between mesmerizing and boring. Barca usually had enough invention and imagination in the final third to stay on the good side. Spain OTOH, was like watching a Lance Storm vs Zack Sabre Jr iron man match in black and white.

Exactly. I was thinking of that exact same example. Remember that Spain vs Chile world cup match where it was just Spain knocking it about for the last 40 minutes? Fuck me, give me Stoke shit housing and hoofing it any day.

I'm with you there. Spain when they won the Euros in 2012 were unbearable to watch (in contrast to the 2008 side and to a lesser degree the 2010 side), well apart from the final. Del Bosque managed to suck the joy out of them and make them functional.

Mourinho has been caught training with 3 players on Barnet Common.

Honestly, Spurs can fuck off at the moment.

Where's my Brentford shirt?

You couldn't make it up could you. He hates him so much that he wants him to catch a fucking virus by making him do extra training during isolation. Somewhere Luke Shaw is gulping a sigh of relief.

Sounds like somebody wants a way out of the club to save face...

I hope he goes tomorrow, the fucking cunt.
