Gundo getting a hard time from German fans

Ilkay Gundogan was booed by Germany fans as the team avoided a late scare to beat Saudi Arabia in their final World Cup warm-up game, in Leverkusen.

What's that all about? Have I missed something? Traditional number 8 players rarely get booed for no reason.
Sometimes we're good and sometimes we're bad but when we're good, at least we're much better than we used to be and when we are bad we're just as bad as we always used to be, so that's got to be good hasn't it?

Possibly something to do with his recent gift to the Turkish president.

I suppose calling the Turkish president "my president" can't have gone down too well in Germany

No . He wasn't on the field. Sat the game out with a strained earlobe

How very Arsenal of him:

Former Arsenal defender Tony Adams has told the Sun that Tottenham Hotspur players do not know how to win and that he fears England's chances at the World Cup will be affected by their lack of success.

Five Tottenham players -- captain Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Danny Rose, Eric Dier and Kieran Trippier -- are in the England squad, and Adams, who captained the side for several years in the 1990s, said their inability to win a trophy at club level means they do not possess a winning mentality.

"You must be able to handle winning emotionally and mentally and if they don't know how to win it, they aren't going to win it," Adams said.

"I'm really worried about these Tottenham players. I don't think they know how to win. They're very good players, but at certain points in seasons and tournaments, you have to step up. There's a psyche [that] players must have."
I'm not really a City fan. I'm just here for attention.

Pretty sure Beckham said the same thing about us in 2012 when we eventually went on to win the league.

Do we do a Fantasy league for the WC?

I can set it up. I suggest https://fantasy.fifa.com/. It's free of charge and works pretty much like the official Premier League fantasy competition.

The BBC is so fucked. From dumbing down to gender pay gaps and corrupt pay arrangements, political bias and inept management. Another UK institution with crumbling foundations
