Great stat! 

Today’s win at Salford City means Swindon Town are the only team in the Football League to have beaten all 91 fellow members of the top four tiers. ?

I like that one!

I've checked - because I'm that sad - and if Bromley and Barrow come up then you're fine because you've played and beaten them. Halifax Town you can pretend are the same as the old Halifax Town. But you've never played Solihull Moors and they're third at the minute...

There's a really quick link on 11v11 so it's not actually that hard when you're only checking the teams at the top of the division below.

But, yes, also that.

Had a quick look at the Euro play off structure . Now my head hurts . Deary me how to make things as unintelligible as possible ... And Scotland already had a play off through beating Albania and Israel in the nations league ( you may have missed those games ) . So I’m thinking what’s the point of playing a year of qualifiers then ? Im sure I’m thick and it’s all been superbly worked out but boy they don’t help themselves in how people perceive it ! And then we get to the laudable initiative of spreading games round in the tournament itself , but my brain cell couldn’t absorb how that works in the same thinking session

….........… and Pochettino goes. Pathetic.

I doubt he'll be short of offers. In fact, he'll probably do better out of this daft decision than Spurs will.

This appointment says more about Mourinho than Tottenham. His people must have put feelers out about Bayern, Real or other potential giants, and got nothing back. His reputation definitely damaged after United, despite winning two mediocre trophies. So now Tottenham is his best bet. If he waited a month or so I think Emery might be gone, and that would be better for him.

That euro group draw looks  kind ... or it did until they let it be known our pair up for the knockouts is with the group of death 

It won't be a problem. They'll all be dead. ?

Does anyone at Arsenal really know what they are doing ? Still got Brighton half time/full time so  thanks once again . Didn`t even know Ozil was playing until i noticed him walking off the pitch at the end , after pocketing  another few hundred thousand  for very little .

United found form at last , Fergie with a delighted grin.

Nah, just City being magnanimous and helping out the less fortunate at Christmas.?????
