    In 2015, Tony Pulis said Serge Gnabry isn’t good enough to play for West Bromwich and told the club to terminate his loan contract from Arsenal.

    Today: Serge Gnabry has been voted as Bayern Munich’s player of the season. Bundesliga champion and part of Germany’s squad.

    San Siro is going to be knocked down. New ground next door.

    It's a leaky, rusting throwback but iconic all the same. Sad stuff.

    Such a shame considering they renovated it 3 years ago.

    Renovated?

    It's falling apart. The bogs aren't fit for purpose, it stinks and is rusty as fuck. Amazing looking stadium, but it needs gutting and starting again sadly.

    Think the "renovation" there was literally a lick of paint. It's basically untouched since 1990 and we all know standards have moved on since then.

    Saw a game there in 2017, place is crumbling and the toilets are awful. Iconic ground though so very glad I got to see a game there, hopefully it is not replaced by some soulless bowl. Wonder how long it will take, this is Italy after all.

    The planned project is rumoured to be something like the Mercedes Superdome in Atlanta but in regards to time they demolished and built the stadium for Juventus quite quickly (2 years)

    Marta is the all-time World Cup top scorer for both men and women, with 17 goals to her name across 19 matches.
    I wish they wouldn't do this, it's embarrassing. What is there to gain by insisting that the standard is the same? A part-time striker from Stourbridge would score more than her.

    He tried to get an opposition player booked for tackling a pitch invader too. He's not thick, he's just a cunt.

    Villa the latest club to sell their ground to their owners.

    Done the week before the play off final, which explains why they were always confident of FFP. Not part of the same holding group as the club though, which makes them fucked if the owners turn out to be bandits

    I'd be very wary of this kind of deal. All it takes is for the owners to get disillusioned with the whole project/fall out with the fans or whatever and suddenly they might put the club up for sale, not including the ground. Creates all kinds of mess and it's happened frequently in the past - Leeds took the best part of 20 years to sort out, Oxford still isn't sorted and probably never will be, Walsall have the bizarre situation where the owner is still there and charges them rent every year, there'll be other examples too.

    It's short term carpetbagging shite. If at any point they'd bothered building a proper squad in the Championship rather than putting expensive sticking plasters everywhere and hoping they could wing it, they wouldn't need this kind of manoeuvre which could easily turn sour down the line.

    Not that Fosun could do it even if they wanted as Wolves don't own the land.

    This loophole is bizarre and I hope Villa get punished for it long-term.

    They could sell themselves the leasehold to the stadium without owning the land it sits on. Think the Walsall situation is similar to that, didn't Bonser allow the club to gain ownership of the stadium but still owns the land it sits on so he can keep getting the ground rent.

    Yeah, but if you don't own the land, it isn't much of an asset to sell on later (if you were so minded) or even leverage any value out of if you sold the football club and retained that bit. It's just bricks and mortar.

    I think there's a covenant built into the lease to prevent this sort of thing happening. I remember something about Morgan not being able to move the club for this reason.

    EFL are bottlejobs for letting this type of thing happen. Easy enough to make the owners/ directors sign a PG on the club's debts.

    There is a 99 year covenant that the ground must be a sports ground. Totally ironclad

    That's not quite what I meant. I thought there was something in the lease to prevent 3rd party or sub-leasing the ground. As in Fosun couldn't split the lease from the club in a separate company.

    So all the crying from Gomes at Watford last season as every FA Cup game was his last game ever for Watford was for nothing as he signs a 1yr deal

    Pretty sure it was definitely proven that he was better than their #1 at dealing with people "lumping it into the box".
