It's strange that Andy Townsend doesn't seem to have a problem with James McClean, Darron Gibson, Marc Wilson and Shane Duffy doing pretty much the same thing for Northern Ireland, then switching allegiances to The Republic. 

Funny that.....

His point is correct, if you play for the senior team, even in a friendly, you shouldn't be allowed to change country. None of the players you mention played senior for Northern Ireland. 

Anyway, I have no issue personally with Rice picking England. He was born there so he made the correct call. I am sure plenty of other players we had over the years, maybe even Townsend included, would have chosen England if they were good enough. Having said that, he was a great servant. Best of luck to Rice. He looks a real talent. We could have done with him.

Sickening reading that article. Can’t help but imagine the cries of “get your tin foil hats out” at some of those from certain posters on here. Billy Davies’ cousin in charge when he got a new deal at Forest!

Cardiff have also reportedly questioned Willie McKay’s practice of trying to inflate transfer fees by fabricating interest in players from clubs.

“It was us who put in the media about other clubs wanting you — West Ham, Everton etc — to create an interest on you that’s what we do,” Willie McKay wrote in a letter to Sala that has now been made public.

Frightening performance form Messi today. 650th goal, 50th hattrick, 36th goal in 35 games vs Sevilla his weak foot would be Barcelona's 18th top goalscorer ever, his left foot has 251 MORE GOALS than the second highest goalscorer ever... and the technique for that first goal is raw, natural ability.

32 games this season, 33 goals, 15 assists in a league as technically gifted as La Liga. Showing just how farcical the Ballon d'or has become, FIFTH PLACE?!?! If it was on ability alone, as it should be for player of the year, he'd have a clean sweep of them since he was 19.

Every passing game I watch him I become more and more convinced he's the best there's ever been.

Nail-head.

It's not even a debate anymore for me

Great post. He’s a freak of nature. Showing absolutely zero signs of slowing down. Me and some friends are off to barca in a couple of weeks just to watch him live as it’s been on my bucket list for some time.

That will be amazing and something you can look back on and tell the grandkids about.

I got to see him play at the Etihad when they lost to city but I'm jealous of you.

Have a good time pal.

Me neither. 

Some will still try and compare him to Ronaldo. Ronaldo has the stats that can rival, although Messi is still ahead, and anyone who's ever watched the 2 for a full match and not a highlights show knows there is no comparison.

I was lucky enough to see him, Neymar and Suarez all score in a 5-0 victory 4 years ago. Hope you have as good a night. Keep your phone and wallet safe though, bloody pickpockets are as good at what they do as Messi is at what he does!!
