Flashback Friday

According to the reliably informed Steve Wyss, Newcastle failed to push through a deal for Ngolo Kante because the Magpies did not reach Caen’s evaluation of €4m. They had two bids rejected worth €2m and then €2.75m. Kante incidentally had a man of the match performance this evening.

Some things don't change. At least we didn't write this article though:

So depressing. I get people hated Carr but I do think he got shafted basically, scouted a lot of good players we didn't get.
:lol: I dunno. I'm starting to think it was us.

Tbf with that Spurs one, the bloke writing it probably didn't write the heading and the article itself isn't that bad

Except from describing/alluding to Kante as an attacking player and judging him on his attacking stats. Aye, proper well informed that. Clearly had never ever watched him. It's pretty poor, let's not not pretend.
Not sure if he was playing further forward at that stage but I think I read that he did used to play further forward at one stage

Tbf I did read a Guardian article about Kante with insight from his former team-mates at Caen who said he was box-to-box as they had a dedicated DM which allowed Kante to roam a little as he was clearly far more talented than the players around him (they say). Still though, the guy writing that article clearly hadn't watched him imo, it's sounds like someone who has looked at stats, international appearances and injury records and feigned knowledge. Probs accounts for a large portion of internet journalism/journalists mind.

Betfair have started doing an HQ-type quiz and it's all football related (don't know if just for the WC or will go on in that vein).

Who was the first England player to be sent off? Ray Wilkins. The host then goes on to inform us that he's currently a TV pundit.. :facepalm:

if we'd signed kante he'd have been playing in the turkish 3rd division now
So raise your fists and march around
Dont dare take what you need
I'll jail and bury those committed
And smother the rest in greed
Crawl with me into tomorrow
Or i'll drag you to your grave
I'm deep inside your children
They'll betray you in my name

:lol: Exactly. Wouldn't have changed the fact that Pardew was the manager. He'd have tried to turn him into a CAM.

One of the players from that Zaire team, Ricky Mavuba, fled the country later on and lived in Angola. There, he maried an Angolan woman. When the Angolan civil war broke out, him and his pregnant wife escaped on a boat, where she gave birth. The family gained refugee status in France. When the child was 2 his mom died and when he was 14 Ricky Mavuba passed away. This pushed the child to dedicate himself fully to football as a coping mechanism. In 2014, Rio Mavuba played for France at the World Cup, 40 years after his father played for Zaire.

Incredible. Knew he was born on a boat but didn't know the story behind it.
"What is a club in any case?
Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses, marketing departments or executive boxes. It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city.
It’s a small boy clambering up stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his father’s hand, gawping at that hallowed stretch of turf beneath him and, without being able to do a thing about it, falling in love." – Sir Bobby Robson

Gigi Buffon did not have the ideal Paris Saint-Germain debut, giving away a penalty and conceding two goals in a defeat to Chambly (from the 3rd tier).

The 40-year-old goalkeeper started the friendly match and within five minutes had brought down a player to give away a penalty, which was then converted.

He conceded again before making way at half-time and PSG eventually lost 4-2.
