In the Scum car park today, Luke Shaw reversed his (£100,000) Range Rover into Phil Jones' (£200,000) Bentley Continental.

I think that's a pretty poor state of affairs, to be honest because, with all the practice they get at 'parking the bus', I thought their vehicle handling skills would be better than that.

I blame Mourinho. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

"United will fight to keep Bogbrush"

Fantastic
Something could get pretty rotten in the state of Swampland. . . it could just turn out even better than a particularly gory episode of "I, Claudius".

Loved the headline LIVERPOOL LOOKING INTO SEVILLE POLICING you’d think the bbc wouldn’t run it, a fading force in football no trophy for years has ambitions to be an international policing body.
Probably a few scousers lighting candles in ano smoking area and got a good thumping by the Spanish cops.
When will they get the fact that no one gives a toss.

I've been looking at that for a few seconds and then it dawned on me.

Gold from The Beeb. Smalling is 'surprised' at Southgate's reasoning for leaving him out of the England squad...

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/42071986

Manchester United's Chris Smalling was "surprised" by the reason England boss Gareth Southgate gave for leaving him out of his last squad - but says he has not given up hope of a recall.

Southgate suggested an inability to play out from the back had cost central defender Smalling his place.

But the 27-year-old, capped 31 times, believes he has plenty to offer.

"I play for one of the biggest clubs and most successful managers in Jose [Mourinho]," he said.

"You don't play for one of the biggest clubs in the world for as long as I have and won most trophies bar the Champions League without being able to do everything that a top defender can do, be it playing or defending.

"Was I surprised? Yes."

'Your club form decides if you play at a World Cup'

Smalling, who moved to Old Trafford in 2010, has made 13 appearances this season, helping United keep eight clean sheets.

Team-mate Phil Jones, Chelsea's Gary Cahill, Leicester's Harry Maguire, Liverpool's Joe Gomez and John Stones of Manchester City were selected ahead of him for England's home friendlies against Germany and Brazil, both of which ended 0-0.

Asked about his decision, Southgate said: "I have huge respect for Chris. He's a player who's obviously playing at a big club.

"We want to play a certain way. The players we've brought in we want to see using the ball from the back and building up in a certain way. That's a style I want to have a look at.

"I know what Chris can do. We've picked young defenders who haven't got as many games under their belt so this is a great chance to look at them."

Smalling said: "This year, as a team, we have one of the best defensive records and have done for a number of years. I'm proud to be part of that.

"It is your club form that decides if you play at a World Cup because there aren't many England games throughout the season.

"While I'm here, as part of a successful team, that should show, come the summer, what is to be."

The subtext on this is that Southgate, after watching Englands youth teams sweep aside all before them this summer, wants to base the senior teams style of play on how City play as this is how our Academy is set up. Along with Chelsea's as well it should be noted

I saw that myself BA and had a good chuckle about it.

It would seem that Smalling's dinosaur route one distribution from the back has finally made him obsolete in international terms.....and not before time :lol: :lol:

I somehow doubt though that he'll be knocking on Mourinho's door, urging him to alter the Scum's playing style, as it's said that leopard's can't change their spots and getting the Swamp Stars to play football is doctrinally an impossibility.

Very much sounded to me like he is a Rag natural, getting into the squad via the team that they played for rather than how they played, and should be there on 'istree, not form.

Oh, just realised, that's how the FA usually works, parameters have changed.
