The problem is that if Real Madrid offer you the job you've kinda got to take it.  Opportunity knocks and all that. It's not very often big club jobs come up at ideal times, something has usually gone wrong in order for the job to be available.  Real are in an odd spot right now because a lot of key players are coming to the end but fans expectations are gonna be high. There should be money available though, Real Madrid to tend to back their manager and as they've not spent much of late I'm sure there is plenty in the bank.  

 

I'd love to see Wenger go there and win the League and Champions League double just for the lulz.   As for Zidane?  Summer off, take the France job when Deschamps is inevitably hounded out after the World Cup.

Wenger would actually make sense for this Real Madrid side on a short-term basis. He's not an elite tactician, but Zidane has shown that you don't need to be with this Real squad, and it's more about handling the egos and letting them play with a degree of freedom.

True, that's a good point.

It just dawned on me that for some reason people have a big problem with rich footballers. More so than musicians or actors or business people. I suppose football was the working peoples sport and until late 90s it still was but now the distance between Prem or Championship football and its fans is bigger than almost any sport. At least American sports have fan appreciation days and stuff like that.

Yeah, I mean that's been building for quite a long time now. It used to be pretty rare for fans to boo their own teams but now that shit happens every week. They get paid a fortune, you have to pay a fortune to watch them so you feel entitled to a certain level of effort or performance.. It's a breeding ground for resentment which now comes to the surface at the drop of a hat.

That Dive from sterling is the exact same as the Kane one against Liverpool Knock the ball away from the keeper and then fall into him. Strange how all the commentators are clear this one wasn’t  but the Kane one was...

Football analysis on TV is completely results oriented. If England were given a penalty Sterling would have been clever, especially if it happened in an important game.

Go to about 38 seconds. This was in a big game and it is a dive - doesn't matter to anyone though as it "won" a penalty and we beat Argentina 1-0.

Bonus points for a young Spurs manager conceding the penalty.
