#Atalanta so good to watch. So positive. And now leading #AtalantaPSG (without stray emoji).
#PSG answered those pre-match questions about their resilience. They had talent from the bench, expensive talent, but that determination to recover, that will to win imbued the whole side. Neymar gets stick but he never stopped showing and running here. #ATAPSG
Harry Maguire needs to issue swiftly a statement of contrition, regardless of any appeal. The quicker the proper apology, the sooner the rehabilitation begins (though it will take a while). Sad, embarrassing story.
“I remember the sound of my mum crying herself to sleep, having worked a 14-hour shift, unsure how she was going to make ends meet. Thankfully I had the talent to kick a ball about to pull us out of that situation. Many can’t find that way out.” They need help, Rashford urges MPs
Timely statement of genuine contrition from Phil Foden. He's been foolish, as he acknowledges.
Elite clubs going cap in hand to Government for reimbursements for non-playing staff placed on furlough is a bad look for the game when there's money at the elite end to cover it, when players could defer wages and there's more pressing need for the state's money elsewhere.
