  1. Mourinho quote about Gazzaniga

    “Magic Hands. My father played in this stadium and he was always telling me that a ‘keeper for a top team has to be different from the others, as you don’t have 10 saves to make per game but one,’ said Mourinho.

    ‘But when the one comes, the magic hand has to be there and Paulo did it for us in a difficult period at 1-1”

    Loving Gazzaniga’s spiderman form right and drive for rapid counter attacks. He’s playing at the highest level, highest pressure, and hes excelling. Really want to see him between the sticks. Enough fucking around, Scaloni! Call this man up.

  2. It’s official palacios is bayer leverkusen
    Player . I’m so happy he made this move
    Yet young arg midfielder move to top
    European league looking forward to him and Dominguez how they got on
    In thier respective leagues
    That shows how good super league is .
    Good complainant for the local league.

  3. Always love this crazy competition. It is at the highest level with the highest level of visibility and pressure. I do like more and more of our players playing in pressure situation, as I feel that is what we lack. Not skills or experiences.

    Some fun prediction:

    What I want
    Juve, Barca, PSG, Atletico, Spurs, Bayern, Valencia, City

    What will probably happen
    Juve, Napoli, PSG, Liverpool, Spurs, Bayern, Valencia, Real
