Had a scandinavian feel about it this match. Ole is Norwegian  Lindelof Swedish Ericsson Danish Spurs can't Finnish.

How good is the Maguire, Lindelof pairing....    

Ole's at the wheel

   Wasnt the word used "Negrito" ?

 

 

Indeed but once translated from Spanish doesn't it mean the same? It must do if previous examples of players using it have meant punishment

Are you saying "lost in translation" ?

Mate... think about it. The 'n' word which you refer to, that has changed form, originated from a derogatory word. It was flipped on its head and used as a way of showing solidarity or strength.

 

This word literally comes straight from the word for the colour. It doesn't originate from a word which was used for oppression.

 

Make sense?

I know what the origin is and the "justification" for using it as it has been used as a defense previously. Do you think the FA will buy it this time because I don't think they've bought it in the past

As Champers said, I don't have much faith in the FA.

If only you were there to argue for Suarez.

I concur with all of that and that was the rationale used against Silva. The only part I disagree with is the last bit as for some reason Silva only got 1 match ban.

The 3 match minimum ban is a new FA rule, brought in after the Silva episode. I read it on the BBC Sport website yesterday. BLM, taking a knee etc, etc might have had some impact on the rule.

What do you think, Jonny Evans back to United 75% say no 

During Maguire's bad patch people were saying he is no better than Evans. Now it is OK to say Maguire is a decent player without being lynched, I would make the point that Evans is no better than Maguire! 

 

Comon CB... let's have your predicted 11 for tonight... not who you want to play, but who you think Ole will play....
