1 BAYERN BOSS IT A night to forget for Tottenham in the UCL! WE KNOW SPURS have been out of form, but we never expected the 7-2 home thrashing they suffered at the hands of boss-level Bayern Munich. Saying that, the Bundesliga champs have quietly rebuilt a five-star squad which can beat anyone in the world. The standout star? Ex-Arsenal forward Serge Gnabry, who scored FOUR on the night. He was buzzing! FAB FOUR! After his four goals, Gnabry now has more from open play than Harry Kane at Spurs’ new stadium – all in less than 30 minutes! The last player to score four goals against an English team in the Champions League was Lionel Messi v Arsenal in 2010! DID YOU KNOW? Tottenham’s defeat was the biggest EVER home loss by an English team in…

what united need!

THE STAR SIGNINGS SANCHO & MADDISON United are in desperate need of some superstar signings, like when Paul Pogba joined in 2016. Bringing in Sanch and Mads would 100% lift the club! THE MANAGER UPGRADE MAURICIO POCHETTINO Mauricio Pochettino is a ready-made replacement who would relish a new challenge with young and hungry players. Sorry, OGS – your time is up! THE NEW SKIPPER HARRY MAGUIRE A team like Man. United needs a solid leader on the pitch because, let’s face it, Ashley Young doesn’t cut it any more. Give Harry the armband! THE TACTICAL TWEAK ATTACK, ATTACK, ATTACK! Fast counter-attacking play used to be the United way. But now? They’re slow, out of ideas and totally lacking confidence. This useful set-up below will help them move mad. Pace to burn!…

matchday 2 in the champions league

LIVERPOOL 4-3 RB SALZBURG ANFIELD, WEDNESDAY 2 OCTOBER THE REDS HELD off an epic Salzburg comeback that could’ve been the talk of the round. Liverpool led 3-0 after 36 minutes, but by the hour it was 3-3. Salzburg's 19-year-old striker Erling Haaland tapped in with his first touch having started on the bench because of illness. Luckily for Jurgen Klopp, Mo Salah restored order with 20 minutes left – phew! BARCELONA 2-1 INTER MILAN NOU CAMP, WEDNESDAY 2 OCTOBER A BEAUTIFUL BRACE from Luis Suarez kept Barcelona on track, but it wasn’t a straightforward night. Inter silenced the Nou Camp after just two minutes and could’ve gone 2-0 up but for a brilliant Marc-Andre Ter Stegen save. Suarez hit a stunning 20-yard volley to level it, before the returning Lionel Messi set him up for…
