    Its calander year totals. 2011 - 2013 was his most prolific time period, 73 and 60 total goals scored in those two seasons. Amazing to think that since 2007/8 when he scored a piddly 38, he has never dipped below 40 in a season since.

    Surely Hazard is on his way out?
    Saying Madrid are the best club in the world, he's always dreamt of playing for them and feels he only has one big move left in his career.
    He's just trying to let the chavs down gently.

    I'd say it's a bit similar to the Ronaldo to Real deal, he'll go after one last season.

    Be surprised if he went in January but you never know, definitely come & get me comments on his behalf.

    Have to admit I didn't even know what that was, I had to look it up. What a weird name, it makes no sense whatsoever.

    It's actually a breeding ground for the vision they're selling when you think about it, there's obviously a lot of highly successful people who follow football too but there is a huge working class base of disenfranchised people there who would love nothing more than to believe that all of their problems are caused by immigration. I've often been amazed how seemingly rational people can absolutely lose their minds over football (all sports in truth but football seems to be the most tribal), it's barely believable how different some people can become. If these guys can tap into that same emotion to get them supporting political causes you've got a very motivated and dangerous support base.

    Loki is doing a great job with Arsenal.

    Their first two games were as tough as they come and they've been impressive ever since those 2 losses, they should have taken points off Chelsea too.

    Watched ManU/Juve the other night and it never even occurred to me that Emre Can plays for Juventus now,it's mad how quickly he's gone out of people's minds. I assume he's injured because he wasn't on the bench but he's not getting into their best 11 when everyone's fit. He's not on the same level as Becantur and Pjanic.

    I think Bentancur had his best game for Juve this season again the Mancs. Can is injured and was starting to get game time, he played v Napoli and Bentancur came on for him and he gave Napoli a few chances. Can gives them even more solidity in midfield. If Bernadeschi is fit he tends to keep Dybala in the subs and you could argue he has been Juve's best player this season but he was poor when he came on V the Mancs.
    Pjanic is excellent and runs games

    I thought Bentancur was the best player on the pitch mate.Has Bernadeschi been keeping Dybala out of the team? Interesting

    Agree Bentancur was class but hasn't been doing it this season until Tuesday. Allegri has a bit of a strange relationship with Dybala, he dropped him last season and he then picked up an injury with Allegri then keeping on the bench for games that were crying out for his bit of creativity. With Ronaldo arriving he kept him as a sub quite a bit with Bernadeschi getting in and playing brilliantly, his defensive work is exceptional and he got important goals or assists. Ronaldo was not firing fully so he brought Dybala back into the team and he has shown his quality.
