The Winter Break is almost over and that means the return of our Behind Closed Doors podcast with the boy @prodnose . Any questions, however bizarre, would be much appreciated. Please use #BehindClosedDoors  Cheers 👍🏻

Blimey. @ManCity  banned for 2 years from UEFA competitions. 😳

Wondering if Premier League will still have 4 teams in the Champions League? As @ManCity  will clearly be in top 4 will 5th get the spot or will we just have 3 clubs in the competition? @RobHarris  @danroan  @david_conn 

Brilliant stuff from @TC59  to win it for @englandcricket . Well played.

What fresh heel is this? That’s from a @LCFC  fan.

Where there’s a goalscorer there’s hope...and @Aubameyang7  is one hell of a goalscorer.

Did you just say I dare you? 🤣


After all that Claudio Ranieri has done for Leicester City, to sack him now is inexplicable, unforgivable and gut-wrenchingly sad.

The worst defeat in our history. England beaten by a country with more volcanoes than professional footballers. Well played Iceland.

Football is a simple game, 22 men chase the ball for 82 minutes and the Germans get a player sent off so 21 men chase the ball for 13 minutes and at the end the Germans somehow fucking win.

Terrific movement from The Queen here. Gets behind the defender, goes one way then cuts back inside. Regal attacking play.

Dear non English football fans. Football’s coming home is a fun song highlighting the lack of success of our football team for decades. No one really thought we’d win it. I totally get why you might think it was arrogance, but it’s more our self deprecatory sense of humour. ??

Does anyone really genuinely think there has ever been a better footballer than Lionel Messi? I mean seriously?

There. Is Nothing. Like. Football.

Stick to anything but football. Ronaldo is a wonderful footballer, but Messi’s numbers this year are superior. His play is on another level. He too won a double. Just because you interviewed him doesn’t make him better. ?

Oh Neymar, there is only one direction to go from @FCBarcelona  and that's backwards.
