If you have a quiet moment today, spare a thought for Chelsea boss little Tommy Tuchel, whom despite all the riches and opulence from his Epicurean club owner, has no strikers for the next few weeks :(

When the Polish scouts watch Villa next, make sure it is for Matt Cash - not Matt Targett - that they are checking the relevant ancestry :facepalm: That guy`s having the worst week.

The federation is talking with President Duda in order to speed up Cash's passport paperwork. They want him playing for the national team in November.

The last time I can remember that happening to Spurs was when Liverpool came to town at the arse end of the Villas-Boas era. :facepalm: indeed.

As I remember it, we played a really high defensive line and slow 43 year-old Friedel in goal. Liverpool kicked it over the defence and ran into the massive space in between, ad nauseum :rose:

This was the worst home defeat for Wisla since the 1993 6-0 loss to Legia, but that was a fixed game. The 'Neckties' had to win big in order to finish top of the table. Two weeks later, the title was taken away from them and awarded to the third place team. The runner-up was also cheating, you see.

The inherent flaw in Nuno`s "don`t shoot, don`t score" tactic is visible to the keen observer.

Zaglebie 1 Cracovia 1 :zzz:  Krakow men were looking for a goalless draw right from the first whistle. They didn't get their wish.

Wow, how awful would it be for that to happen at home! I wonder how that feels -- let's ask Man United, shall we? :dweez: :chickendance:

And also, both Wisla and MU played in the same colors. Not a good weekend for the red and white. :16ton:
