Great last minute goal for QPR at Derby.  Crap game but lovely goal from Andre Gray, is he a former Birmingham player?

How does Barkley get into their squad?

Is there still that rule about having a certain number of English players in the match day squad?

Messi wins the Ballon d’Or. How boring should have gone to Lewandowski.

Not questioning his quality, but what has he done to deserve that?

Good game. Feel sorry for Derby. But my main impression is how much Wayne Rooney is beginning to resemble Tony Soprano.

Did anybody watch the actual Ballon d'Or ceremony ? Christ, if they're short of material in whatever has replaced Guantanamo Bay as the CIA dark site of choice, sitting through hours of Didier Drogba and some woman whom I assume might have once been a pro footballer "banter" with other football players (a group renowned for their insightful commentary) in a hodge-podge of languages for hours on end would have me admitting to anything just to get away.

Argentina winning the Copa maybe? Agree that it was a chance to give it to someone else. Lewandowski good shout

Always think the Ballon d'OR is the equivalent of the Mercury music prize. Just a load of journo  fanboys voting for their favourites. Hence the winners

It's a load of bollocks. pparently one of the criteria is "whole career to date" and not just that year's activities which means he'll probably win it until he retires.

Yes. "Some woman" (although I know that some struggle with the notion of what a woman is) who appeared to be completely random as I didn't recognise her as either a celebrity of renown, nor a female footballer (not that I have an encyclopaedic knowledge of the women's game, but I'd suspect I recognise more than the average viewer).

Again, always a delight when a poster chooses the worst possible interpretation and has the moral courage to say so by insinuation rather than actually saying what they think.

Edit : the "some woman" in question is apparently freelance journalist Sandy Héribert, the majority of whose work would appear to be on the French equivalent of Freeview channels that nobody watches, with occasional forays on "proper" TV channels for the big sporting events such as the Olympics.

If it helps, I will add that if it were a male in the same position I'd have equally said "some bloke", and I'll leave it to you to decide if you would have made a "Some Bloke?" post.

I don't think so, Demarai Gray is at Everton though.

Think Andre is the homophobic former Watford striker
