    Hearing very strong rumours that it’s coming home.

    Putin’s got the lads on some Ivan Drago, cybersoldier level juicing programmes, fair play to him.

    Think Xavi had gone by then hadn’t he? Or was in his final year. Obviously Busquets, Rakitic & a fading Iniesta is a good midfield but I don’t think it was the best in the world by any stretch, they played down the wings a lot more and generally just tried to get the ball to the forwards ASAP, rather than absolutely dominating the middle like Pep’s side did. I don’t mean to directly compare it to the shit show of this Argentina midfield, just to show that if the tactics are right and the forwards are good enough, you can still get by with deficiencies in the middle. Messi is still the best player I’ve ever seen despite Ronaldo’s Indian summer, but he seems like a pretty shit captain.

    I think Enrique’s Barça showed you can have great success without a top class midfield, as long as your forwards are good enough. This Argentina side though doesn’t seem to have any midfield to speak of. At all. And that does seem a bit of an error in hindsight.

    I’ve consulted lots of tactics experts over this, and have come to the conclusion that Argentina should have tried playing with some sort of ‘midfield’. Real shame Sampaoli seemingly didn’t consider this approach.

    The Bundesliga fans I know seem pretty unimpressed. Very inconsistent apparently. We’ll see.

    Arsenal

    He had a decent little spell of form around Christmas but it soon tailed off and physically he looked shot, often blowing out of his arse after 30 minutes. I understand the desire for people to see him succeed but it obviously wasn’t happening, and unfortunately people are simply kidding themselves if they think he looked like a first XI player for a club with top 4 aspirations.

    Wilshere has confirmed he’s leaving. It’s the right decision, he just wasn’t good enough anymore, but it’s very sad how it’s ended for a guy who’s been here since he was diddy and who at one time had a huge amount of promise.

    VAR has worked impeccably so far in this tournament from what I've seen, and we've had a bunch more goals because of it. Personally I thought the Griezmann foul was a penalty; he got a slight toe on the ball initially, but Griezmann could have regained possession had the defender not then kicked him on the leg afterwards.

    Can't believe how poor Kroos and Khedira were yesterday. It was like watching the old Lampard/Gerrard combo on a particularly irresponsible day.

    Still can’t believe France retained Deschamps after the Euros. He’s an absolute bum.
