So, for at least once this year, the craven vulgarians grubby greed takes a back seat to civilised culture."A merry Christmas, uncle! God save you!" (Scrooges nephew.)~CCV
"Manager Jose Mourinho has held talks with Manchester United about a new contract but is in no rush to sign a new deal. (ESPN)"Sounds like there is a pay cut in there...
Are we supposed to genuflect to the TV companies because just for once they haven't treated the travelling football supporter with the contempt that they usually do?
Leeds beat Man U 3:1..Oh them good old days..
Merry Xmas everybody
#KEEP BRITAIN TIDY. Football should be played every day. It will get the football thugs...I mean football fans off the streets. All thanks to those carefully built prisons...I mean stadiums.Come on FA/FIFA/UEFA start increasing the amount of games. It would at least benefit us if MU had to play every day. Nothing better than keeping those fans behind closed doors 😂
This is for the common man who's club is a part of the fabric of his life. He attends his clubs matches, with his children, like his father/grandfather etc. With Remembrance Day nearly upon us, it's worth, not just remembering the events in our lives that tied us to our loved ones, but keeping them alive. We keep our parents/grandparents alive with these ties that bind.Christmas not xmas~CXCIX
From an organisation riddled with controversy, we get even further stupidity.World cup approaching, players break needed.Onward with four games in ten days.SACK THE ENTIRE FA.............Gary Neville.........a man who just doesn't know when to shut up.
Great news. Had planned City away as the Xmas social....trying not to think about the result, but that's not the point ;-)
I suppose it was probably good to have games on xmas day back then because you couldn't play with a lump of coal all day!
This football being played at xmas thing isn't about the footballers, its about the fans. Not every footie fan drives and/or can afford taxis. Public transport ends eaely on xmas eve so most fans would struggle to travel to/from the games. Sky have every right to show a late game on xmas eve but its great that theyve reconsidered.
A victory for common sense!It makes a change!
@189 You're not showing much intelligence yourself.Yes lots of business are open xmas eve (it's where they make most money for the year), but this is sport. It's not about the players/managers, it's about people who don't sit on their arse at home or in a pub to watch a game of football & think they know everything per what the commentator said, but who go & see the game & use their own eyes
There's no way they would have stuck on a Mourinho team at Christmas Eve anyway. It's meant to be a joyous time not a miserable boring one.
Now need another excuse to get out of the last minute shopping - help!
