Past reputations. I watched Spurs v Liverpool the other week. Royal was honking, then they brought on Doherty who was even worse. Both players well past their best.
Conte is not playing him because he's not his signing.
Migrant labourers would be treated the same whether they were constructing stadia or new skyscrapers/shopping malls for the state wealth funds. So to me the state funds' involvement in football as a whole is something you oppose, otherwise don't act all shocked when the World Cup ends up in...
If you have a strong opinion against Qatar hosting this tournament, then the same opinion must follow against human rights abusing Arab states buying football clubs. Newcastle, PSG, City.
Otherwise you're a hypocrite of the highest order (hello BBC pundits).
Docherty and Royal are absolutely shyte at that level too though. Spence at least showed promise with displays for Forest in the FA Cup against Arsenal and Liverpool. If he'd had a few games you never know.
