Xabi Alonso's wife, swear Ed I bust out laughing at that part lol.

{Ed001's Note - I am glad you enjoyed mate, it is one of my favourite stories, though I never believed it was true until recently when Crouch admitted to it in his book.}

Thanks ed loved the crouch story. Wouldn't you get a backlog of guys waiting to use the new tv urinals if it was a drama filled game with users standing there wanting to not miss anything? Lol.

{Ed001's Note - I have no idea mate, I am trying not to think about it. Though it would only be like the Chelsea training room if so, as they have a backlog for their urinals amongst the players or did anyway, which led to them getting repeated warnings about leaving the dressing rooms late for games. It was because of a superstition started by Frank Lampard and John Terry. They both used one particular urinal and the team won, so they used it for the next game and so did one of the other players. After a run of games without losses, the whole team were just using that one urinal and so they had to queue up before each game to have a slash....}

Wait . The Chelsea story killed me. For real they were using one urinal beliving thy win cuz of that? LOL.

{Ed001's Note - footballers are very superstitious mate. I am no better, I stopped letting my friend come round to watch games as we never won while he was here and always won when he wasn't, until this weekend. These things matter, we once lost the league because my ex washed a gravy stain off my shirt. And that is a true story.}

'we once lost the league because my ex washed a gravy stain off my shirt. '

Hahahaha Ed that broke me, I needed that mate lol hilarious, well it's not but you know lol!

{Ed001's Note - it is not blooming funny! I will never ever forgive her for that. We were top of the league by a mile under Uncle Roy and running away with it, unbeaten since I spilt gravy on my shirt, so it was not getting washed, just wore the shirt for matches and put it away until the next game. Then one day I came home to find my then girlfriend decided to wash it because it was dirty. We were in a 2 horse race with Man Utd and ended up 6th all because of her. I could never get over it. What made it worse was they brought out a remake of that shirt, the green and white quarters, just recently, to remind me of it.}

Thanks Ed. I agree 100% on Rooney. It's rather embarassing really. Think they could bring Gerrard back for one more match? Have a great day.

{Ed001's Note - let's hope he has more self-respect than to do something like that. If they are going to give out caps for benefit matches like this then they are completely debasing the international scene.}

So Ed, here I am trying to enjoy a full English and your post almost made me choke to death on my hash brown, I've got the giggles big time now. You know when you get asked what's so funny and you can't answer lol that's what I've just gone through. I need to learn not to check the site when I'm out and about.

{Ed001's Note - glad you find my heartbreak and our losing the league so funny! You know I am not even sure we won another game that season after she washed the shirt.}

I know such thing exist ed, but its all in our minds, we belive stongly that those are the reasons we win, so we keep doing it. But still the urinal one is strange.

{Ed001's Note - in our minds???? Are you saying superstitions are not real?!?!?!? Surely not.}

i've never understood friendlies or now the UEFA Nations League (as if a name change will really change anything meaningfully) .

friendlies happen in the middle of the season, where players are in their peak conditions, so why do they need these matches? they'll play together for 1 - 2 matches to get 'acquainted' then it'll be weeks or months before the next time they play together again, so what effect can there be? and that is not including injuries, loss of form that might mean the squad is different the next time round. just stick to getting together for training then competitive matches that actually mean something. wouldn't that be better for the fans, TV, players, clubs?

The only time i see friendlies as essential are when one is playing for charity, testimonial, or a couple of warm up matches before major competitions (the real deal, not friendlies spread across 2 years before the tournament itself), the rest are quite pointless.

{Ed001's Note - spot on mate.}
