Highest ever Eridivise scoreline, beating their own record of 12-1 set in 1972.

^9 goals in the last 37 minutes. :shock:

Ansu Fati is now the youngest scorer in Barca, La Liga, Spain and El Clasico history. Also the youngest in 40 years to be sent off.

The scoreline isn't the funniest thing about the game either when you look at the name of the player red carded.

The match is a stain on VVV's history.

Bartomeu quits Barca. A victory for Messi there.

In his resignation speech he says

“The Board of Directors has approved the acceptance of the requirements to participate in a future European Super League of Football Clubs, a project promoted by the big clubs in Europe.”

:? :o

Rangers have had a terrific start to the season. 16 wins and 2 draws, undefeated, 43 goals scored and just 4 conceded*. :shock:

*and one of those was an own goal.

And Milan back to winning ways behind a (okay, slightly ropey) bicycle kick from a 39 year old. :lol:

He needs to start acting his age.

Good win at Napoli for everyone's new favourite second team, Sassuolo, who move up to 2nd.

Seven years in the top flight in their history - they only made it to the third tier in 2007, and out of the regional system in 1998.

Here's a good stat, inspired by Liverpool's 7-2 defeat at Villa and their topping the table (for now). The biggest margin of defeat in a season by a team that subsequently wins the league is six goals - a joint record held by Benfica - who lost 7-1 to Sporting in 86-87 but went on to win the league, and our Reading the prior season, where our 0-6 defeat at Walsall was the start of a patchy run of form from February, but didn't stop us taking the Third Division title.

Patchy run indeed. Our record at the end of 1985 was P24 W 20 D2 L2. After that, a more prosaic P22 W9 D5 L8.

Norwich lost 7-1 at home to Colchester in 2009, before going on to win the league.

Ha, so they did. First game of the season as well. Proving to be as predictive as our opening day defeat to Plymouth in 05-06.

I seem to remember one of their supporters going down to the touchline and throwing their ST at the manager.

Yes, that was it. Bryan Gunn was sacked, and Paul Lambert was hired, from Colchester, having just masterminded the thrashing.

Yep, I couldn't remember the managers involved, thought it was Hughton for some reason, but Gunn and Lambert are right :D

Just noticed how well Cove Rangers are doing in Scotland.

I previously noticed them when they went into the play offs to try and get into the Scottish football league for the first time 2 years ago but having looked back on it I see they beat Berwick 7-0 to get into the league, then won League 2 last season and now sit top of League 1.

Hope they don't turn into another Gretna. I remember they used to utterly dick teams back in the 2000s and had a player called Kenny Deucher who was a doctor and part time player who scored a stoooooooooooopid amount of goals.
