Diego Costa gives Spain a bad name. Can we send him back to Brazil?

How about that ManCity - West Ham match! Hammers really earned their paycheck, third giant down 😎 City was better tho.

Diego Costa is a cunt, but he's a great cunt when he plays for your team.
Not gonna lie, everything he does is dirty, but hey, if the man can score, I will look the other way.

Didn't expect West Ham to hold it.. At this rate its gonna be a great season in the premier league..

Classic instance of blaming the victim. That Gabriel fellow, his violent behavior toward poor Costa was shameful. It looked to me like Costa was just trying to be friendly.

PSV wins against Manchester United on Tuesday, lose to Heracles (14th last season) on Saturday #JustEredivisieThings
Moreno also injured another player, studs first right on the kneecap with no foul given.

Rodgers is doomed.. With the matches in order from mid october against Everton, Tottenham, Southampton, Chelsea, Crystal Palace and City.. I don't think he'll make christmas.. Or he lucks out and Sturridge is back to save his skin..

True, we won't stand a chance unless someone scores out of the blue in every match, i.e. Cutinho firing from outside the box , Benteke pulling a bicycle kick, Lallana or Sturridge's individual efforts. Forget it

Looks like I forgot to add "opponents mistakes" to the list of how Liverpool will score goals this season.

Seeing the manager (although I expect nothing but being a dick from him) and even pundits defend Costa over this weekend has been rather distasteful as a football fan. You don't hit people, you don't 'friendly' slap them in front of the ref, you don't knock them down. I hope the FA do something because his level of respect was non-existent.

Saints did okay today, I would say we lost the game, not that Man U won it. De Gea saved them, 2 great saves where other keepers might not have got. And Saints are fine, 3 draws away and we lost so far at home this season to Everton and Man U. Sure would have been nice to win but we lost to Man U at home last season, we won away.

 

EDIT: Mark Chapman (BBC presenter) asked earlier and now on MOTD2 is if the pundits would like it if Costa was part of their team, making out like they would happily have him at a certain team just because he's who he is. I wouldn't, there are more prolific goalscorers than Costa in the world that fit that role just as well, with people like Hazard and Fabragas behind them, those players would score as many if not more. He's just an very old looking 26 yr old.



Hmm, pie.

FA gives Costa a 3 match suspension.. But more importantly Eva Carneiro has left Chelsea.. C'mon Wenger.. Hire her just to spite Josť.. She did good work last season and looking at Arsenal they could use a better doctor
