We’ve emerged from hibernation for a new episode of #BehindClosedDoors  with @prodnose . It’s as randomly bonkers as ever. You can hear it here: here: or . Hope you enjoy it. 👍🏻 @Spotify 

Look at the positives: Less chance of being caught offside.

You still seem to think it’s accurate. I’m bemused by that.

It’s still a human eye that decides. 🤣

Yep, I’m all for freeze frame and the line. It’s obvious when someone’s offside, Matt. If it ain’t it’s level.

That’s exactly my point. Thanks for making it so clearly. 👍🏻

@mattletiss7  I think you’re totally misunderstanding me. You think I want rid of it? No, I just want it used sensibly. Anyway I’ve got some Champions League football to cover. 👍🏻👍🏻

Loving tonight’s match programme with Greavsie on the front. 👌🏻

Give Lloris the man of the match award now.


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. ?

Erling Haaland this season. 37 goals. 6 hattricks. For Dortmund: 11 goals in 7 games. In the Champions League: 10 goals in 7 games. He’s 19. 😳
