    And then la Liga was weak.. Son run from his own penalty area to the goal, and not one player challenged him for the ball - not a single challenge!

    If it wasn't Spurs and their bottling DNA when it matters, Jose could have a crack at CL. Maybe Jose is the man to stop the Spurs rotten luck/performances in big moments and they finally announce themselves to the world.

    They played Burnley if they play like that against the top 5 or 6 then you can start praising them like they won the league. Tow mugs who couldn’t get a job in any sport program in Britain working for American sport tv station who still calls it soccer, that should tell you how much they know about football. 🤦🏻‍♂️😆

      Nicol is one of the most versatile players that football has ever seen. He was a great defender as well as superb in attack. He scored some brilliant goals, showing off masterful finishes that would put most strikers to shame. He even lead the goalscoring charts at the beginning of the 1987-88 season, after scoring seven goals in his first seven games, including a superb hat-trick against Newcastle.

      Nicol's importance was officially recognised with a FWA player of the year award in 1988-89, after filling six different positions that season, including deputising for the injured Alan Hansen alongside Gary Ablett at centre half.

      @Kibanroi Shlem I disagree. I love son but he just 'ran' past 7-8 players, while Messi dribbles and completely outplays those defenders. Plus Messi has been doing it for many years.

      Because he 'ran past' and didn't 'dribble past'. He literally just used pace all the way. As a chelsea fan, i love son,but stop being so salty. J see that you want to jump on the bandwagon of hating on this channel,but use your brains once in a while. Messi did it for a decade and a half,son did it for the first time in his career

    Here after Man Utd beat City, having made them (City) look poor in the first half by being superb themselves. But I guarantee Nicol and the others on the panel will spin it instead as an awful performance by Man City, which made Man Utd look good. And I guarantee Nicol will have some nonsense spewing out of his mouth like he always does when United perform well.

    • Godzilla Do Re Mi Fa So La Ti Do

      At the moment , United have the advantage of being underestimated by the big teams owing to their inconsistent performance . Do not get your hopes high up. As of now United still struggles against teams that are in between , the Top 4 and the relegation zone.

      Awful performance when it comes to finishing and defending counter-attacks, overall they were way much better than Manchester United, they controlled almost the whole game, but as usual they don't score until they know that the game is in its final minutes, typical Man-chocks-eter City how I said a day ago in this channel.

      Chris Bautista Month ago

      Rizwan Islam Asia is huge continent. South Korea is only part of South Asia. There are countries in Asia that used to be part of the USSR. You have the Indian subcontinent and the Middle East. So you can’t expect asian journalists to vote for Son because he identifies as asian. Son would have to win the EPL, Champions League with Tottenham & the Asian Cup or World Cup with South Korea. To be even considered as a contender. Yet I doubt that isn’t even enough.
