Jurassic Clarke's comments were prehistoric and his replacement must understand why. Comment piece @iPaperSport  on the downfall of FA chairman Greg Clarke and the search for his replacement 👇

Premier League clubs spending over £1bn on transfers yet claiming they can't/won't bailout lower league clubs facing financial ruin due to money lost from gate receipts is nothing short of obscene. A column @iPaperSport :

Vented some thoughts on Greg Clarke's appearance in front of the DCMS & why if he doesn't understand that as chairman of the FA it is his job to educate himself on the important issues of our times, the job really isn't for him.

Eng U21 coach Michael Johnson has practically given up on becoming a manager. How many interviews has he had at English clubs after 50+ job applications? None. He tells @theipaper  it is a familiar story for black former players.

Arsenal haven't scored a PL goal from open play in almost 8 hours & have scored their fewest goals from 9 games in 30+ years. Meanwhile, their most creative player able to link attack & defence is sat at home on the sofa tweeting about their games.

Spurs manager Jose Mourinho believes he has "10 to 15 years ahead" of him and could still be managing into his 70s. Full story @theipaper :


Mourinho: "I am humble" Mourinho five minutes later asked if he thinks losing the Champions League final affected the Spurs squad: "I don't know because I never lost a Champions League final" ?

Suggestion that Wolves supporters are starting up the fake Brighton goal celebrations at Anfield, setting off the rest of the stadium.

Man City fan walking past: "You need to put in your papers this competition is corrupt." I mean ??????

Love that. 3-1 up, 90th minute. Title already won. Liverpool forwards aren't pressing Brighton's defenders. Van Dijk: "C'mon boys you're getting f***ing lazy!"

Exclusive: Liverpool tried to trade mark “Allez Allez Allez” — words to a terrace chant that has been sung by at least six clubs before they adopted it. Story @iPaperSport : 

Exclusive: Police have taken a statement from a Bournemouth steward who alleges Sergio Aguero hit them. Full story @MailSport  shortly.

Highlights of Lionel Messi v Phil Jones at the Nou Camp:

I'm hearing one English fan is fighting for his life after suffering cardiac arrest when beaten by Russians.

The Premier League’s 20 clubs made record revenues of £4.827bn in 2017‑18, @david_conn  revealed last year. Two weeks after the Premier League suspends games, three clubs ask the taxpayer for a handout.
