Irish media saying Katie due in ring at 11.30ish and it looks to me like there are 4 or 5 fights between her and the main event so I'm guessing 3.30 to 4am?

Funny how the commentators kept says City were only going on top temporarily. They are really desperate for Liverpool to win it..

Hard to see him troubling Canelo in all honesty. Genuinely didn't know Katie was on the card until I just read it on rte.ie, wonder what kind of purse she makes at this stage?

I don't think he was sacked for having the affair more that he put her husband, the club physio, in charge of the reserve team so he could shack up with her when your man was away  ;D Brilliant plan in fairness.

Evans, O Shea and Keane are pretty much in the same category as Smalling and Jones, good decent pros but a level below the best.

I'm pretty sure if you go back in this thread Evans and OShea would have got plenty of stick for not being good enough either

Decent pro is Jones, never really fulfilled his early promise (Duncan Edwards was mentioned at one stage :o), not worthy of a starting place but good enough squad player. All those great United defenders you mention would have played with centre halves of similiar ability at various stages as very few teams would have the luxury of 4 world class centre backs

I'd imagine when Bailly- and Lindelof- were bought they were hardly Mourinhos 1st choice defenders but were bought with a view to competing with Rojo and a senior centre half who was to be bought later but never materialized for the two available slots. Smalling and Jones would be shipped on as they became senior pros and expensive to keep in contract. United have had deals to sell both but the wages were the stumbling block

Got underway this evening, from a quality point of view way too long nowadays at nearly 3 weeks and having 96 entrants. But from a light entertainment when theres feck else on perspective it's brilliant.

1st of the ladies, Lisa Ashton plays tonight.

Martial and Shaw have both gone off injured recently but I think they're in contention for the weekend. Strange game with absolutely nothing to play for (unless Juve fail to beat Young Boys) so both sides will probably be understrength. Hopefully one or both of the young lads gets 15/20 mins.

De Gea, Shaw, Dalot, Smalling, Matic and Martial haven't travelled to Valencia.

I don't think he's admitted he's overweight, has he not said he's too muscular?

Benny put the case for I think MAY have happened. It was a banana skin not a banana that'd mean it was probably bought for eating not throwing. It wouldn't be that unusual for things to pegged at a player in a high emotion game like that, maybe the lad just had it in his hand and lobbed it. Doesn't stop him from being a dick though, he's been charged but I'd say it be hard to make racial element, if there is any, stick.

One good thing the Sterling thing has done is make the papers squirm they are at the root of most of the hate in my opinion. Over the years they treated people like Beckham, Graham Taylor, Gazza, Rooney plus many more appallingly

After the recent rugby trial thread on this board - I would have thought that innocent until proven guilty would have been drilled into even the most bloodthirsty here.

Not to stand up for a Chelsea fan, guilty or not - which is to be decided, ultimately the only person knows are the immediate vicinity witnesses and Sterling himself but there isn't a game played in the Premier League which a player doesn't get a load of it when he goes to take a corner. The amount of shock at this like it's a one off (again, assuming verbal abuse only) is beyond absurd. It happens every week, in every game. I'm not saying it's ok by any means, but Christ, some need to catch a grip here. Talk about jumping on a bandwagon.

I also find it quite insane how a Banana can be thrown at a black player just 7 days prior and there's not one post on it in this thread yet there's men out to hang people with what could be racist abuse / might not be - there is reasonable doubt (right now). This seems to be a more sticking the boot into Chelsea / Chelsea fans than actually caring about the subject from some here - which is really petty.

Anyway, if it was racial abuse - Raheem Sterling should be absolutely lauded for his reaction and restraint. Remarkable from the young man who people have said before is a bit of target for most kinds of abuse.

Who/where are all these people sticking the boot into Chelsea?

The banana skin incident mightn't have been racial either..

Agreed, if there is racist abuse..

But what I'm driving at is that is abuse like this every weekend minus the alleged racial element but that seems to be ok?
