That's... that's a really long way.

Maritimo are on an Island a ways off the coast of Portugal. Vladivostok is on the bit of Russia that snakes down the side of Korea.

Yep!

 

I live for the day this draw, or something like it, happens.

 

SKA Khabarovsk (a little further north than Vladivostok, but still very much Far East) were in the Russian Premier League last season, with the next most easterly club being in Yekaterinburg. It's hardly surprising they finished rock bottom and picked up three points on the road.

On the other news of the day - never let that sour faced fucker near football again, please. 

 

He certainly won't manage in England again I don't think. Not unless one of the mid/lower table clubs gets a cash injection and become the new City.

Maritimo could do with sending a full team over there a week before the game and playing their upcoming domestic games with an entirely different 11.

All the talk of replacing Jose is one thing, but it would appear Utd need to keep up with the times in terms of the broader leadership at the club, the days of signing a manager who does everything have long gone, especially for somewhere as big as Utd. 

 

Arsenal spent a couple of years before Wenger went putting in a structure behind the scenes so that the new man was primarily a coach (which is how most big clubs are run now), Liverpool did it very effectively when Fenway came in, and City have long had this in place.

The Club World Cup is on. Of course, you wouldn't know it from glancing at the television, because nobody's covering it, and the coverage on RTE is unfortunately blocked.

 

Last Wednesday, Team Wellington raced into a 3-0 lead against Al Ain of the UAE, who qualified as the host nation's champion. The Wellington lot might just be kicking themselves, because Al Ain came back to win that on penalties and have just qualified for the final, first knocking out Espérance de Tunis 3-0 in the quarter final, and today beating River Plate on penalties after a 2-2 draw. They're the second host side to make the final after Raja Casablanca's efforts in 2013.

 

Real Madrid play Kashima Antlers tomorrow, the Japanese having overcome Chivas 3-2. The final's on Saturday, and you can watch it if you can find it.

He looks like the ball is stalking him.

 

Like it's just rung his doorbell at 3am and rolled away.

Hard to tell if Arsenal look tired or if it's been the usual slow start. Look better as the half went on, probably deserve to be level.

I can't see Arsenal not scoring if it goes on like this. We really need a second goal.

 

is that enough?

It's a bit of a shame for Arsenal fans, really, because they've been bigging up that 4-2 win and if they hadn't drawn us here they could have milked that until the reverse league fixture. Oh, well.

Shame to lose to your rivals, especially at home, but I don’t think any Arsenal fans will lose sleep. We were poor, no complaints. Spurs time wasting was a bit embarrassing mind.

Arsenal fans throwing a water bottle at Dele Alli. They must have really meant that as a bottle of water costs about £10 at Highbury.

 

His goal was absolute quality.

Whoever did that is a fucking idiot.

 

Is throwing shit as much of a problem in other sports as it is in football? Or is it just this sport that brings out the inner toddler in grown men?

Spectacular.

 

Reminds me of P.E. lessons, when all the kids that didn't really want to play football played in defence and just hung around the goal chatting for the most part. Then when the ball actually came into their area you would see stuff like this.

 

For the first few seconds the play was fairly tidy and I was expecting some kind of beautiful passing move. Great comment from the Reddit thread:
