Mirallas in the squad too

Reckon he'll always call him up but never actually play him.

Graeme Jones is assistant manager isn't he?

Jesus Christ.
Jeff: That's not the way to win.
Kathie: Is there a way to win?
Jeff: There's a way to lose more slowly.

Just shows you, if you're talented enough and you work really hard to prove yourself then you too can one day be an understudy to Graeme Jones

Well done Thierry, bravo
Simply simply lovely

You can just see a few of the Belgian stars turning up for the first international break, taking one look at Graeme Jones & thinking "Who the fuck are you, you fucking bell?"

Bet Lukaku can't wait to link up with Henry to tell him how great he is.
There are only two things I can't stand in this world. People who are intolerant of other people's cultures... and the Dutch.

About 35,000 Evertonians did that every fortnight.

Graeme Jones is the personification of the old saying "it's not what you know, it's who".

Although that doesn't explain Martinez's rise

Bet he'll teach Courtois a thing or two.

Apparently, Ralf Rangnick was one of the finalists for this job but Martinez beat him out.

Rangnick must sit around all day wondering what he has to do to get a job ahead of Martinez since this is the second time this has happened to him. I guess tactical nous doesn't count for much on the market.

Edit: I feel bad for Ralf because he kind of seems destined to be under-appreciated forever. He might not have gotten us in with Lukaku and Deulofeu, but I think he would have been a much better manager for us overall and he would have finally received some well-deserved appreciation outside of Germany.

He's probably not helped that you can't read his name in anything other than a Scooby Doo voice.
