The team look liberated without him - playing with a bit of swagger and panache

And without Paqueta, which dosen't bode well for our relegation fight.
He certainly doesn’t look like a player who would relish a relegation scrap.

I'm not sure what he actually brings to the table
I'll give him until the summer then he's offski, Premiership or not.

He made one good pass which should have been an assist but Raphina tamely shot and ruined it and then one nice back heel in the box to Neymar, who himself should have made an assist. Pearls before swine.

He does exactly what he does for West Ham - being critical, one could say the lads contributions are a bit thin or he operates in a zone that the others around him are not able to see...

Watching Lucas Paquetá perform his rich repertoire of trcks and flicks, you can tell he enormously enjoys his work. You rarely see a sour expression cloud his contented demeanour.

At least he is a happy bunny and he didn't appear to be too miffed to be subbed either. Left the field after completing his nights work

In my book he's not even in the top 10.

In no particular order.
Messi
Fat boy Ronaldo
Ronaldo
Ronaldinho
Pele
Cruyff
Best
Maradonna
Romario
Platini
Zidane
Hagi
Stoichkov
Modric
Gascoigne
Pirlo.

I think he's an overatted role around the grass prick.

All the media are now sucking Brazil off.

Very similar to Portugal's Ronaldo whose being called 'phenomenon' and 'legend' after scoring a penalty against Ghana.

It gets worse. Two England fans were banned from entering the ground dressed as Crusaders because it's offensive to Muslims.

I never had any problem getting into the Bageldrome wearing my full SS kommandant outfit. Or Brammall Lane with a Peter Sutcliffe mask on.




Fucking snowflakes.

Is that why they would never let me in the Paxton when I was wearing my stripy PJ’s ?
Bring back Jonathon !
