    Is it the combination of Palace 10M bid rejected for Brady, and Leeds joining Brentford in race for Canos? Or has something else happened?

    Nothing in that looks too far out of order.
    But hey, if that's how it pans out, at least we'd be above Ipsquit
    and QPRcelona would drop down a division...again! :emoticon-0102-bigsm

    Maybe he'd buy out that lying, scheming bitch of an owner we have, who says
    one thing - and does the complete opposite?
    About time she wrote a new book.
    Instead of 'How to cheat at cooking' she's now perfectly qualified to publish "How to lie through your teeth and take the 'best fans in the world' to the cleaners and stitch them up like a kipper" <grr>

    @ChelseaFC just shows how the FA Cup is a joke.
    I'm a joint Chelsea and MUFC fan and teams of our
    quality should enter at quarter finals.

    And one for the road (she swears it's not a parody account :emoticon-0112-wonde!)

    Plus the possibility of an 'American-style' penalty shoot out so groups of 3 teams get a positive result in every match <doh> :emoticon-0127-lipss

    Of course it has, more countries involved means more backhanders and the FIFA lot can grow fatter off the poor abused football cash cow.

    Bah!

    All the more reason not to watch the early rounds and from what I heard on BBC Breakfast and confirmed by your link Cromer, this is the main reason - "A bigger finals tournament also means more money for FIFA. The governing body has projected a significant hike in revenue, saying that a 48-team tournament could deliver an estimated $640m more."

    I was going to give you a 'like' for that - but your short-term memory loss (NCFC 3 - 0 DCFC) disturbs me somewhat ;)
