to the great José Fonte on winning his third major trophy.
He could still add a 4th one to that and win his 50th cap for Portugal as he's in their squad for the European Championship Finals this summer.
Crystal Palace F.C.
Congratulations to José Fonte on the Ligue 1 title with
Jose Fonte ❤️ he is the champ

|The best fans' return|
at 23:50 19 May 2021
Has to be Lincoln City. Great support, emotion and brilliant scenes with the background of flares from the fans outside the ground. If you've ever been to Lincoln, you'll know it just doesn't feel like a football city. In fact, it doesn't even feel like a city. It just goes to show that success breeds passion. As Sky Sports News said, "Listen to that noise!"
As a side note, Michael Appleton, the Lincoln manager, one of the best young managers in the country, was once manager of Little Pompey before moving on to better things.

Is our defence better without him? In the 11 Premier League & FA Cup games he has missed this season, we have kept 6 clean sheets, and last night, we hardly missed him when he went off. Admittedly he missed the Man United debacle.
I think he flatters to deceive. He is good at passing the ball forwards but defensively he is too slow and covers very little ground. If, as is rumoured, we are going to get a big offer from Spurs for him in the summer, I'd take it and use the money to strengthen the squad.
Salisu looks a much better player.

|Saints' new owner?|

TIF Thoughts on Southampton’s takeover…
"Southampton fans may be slightly concerned over Lopez’s suitability to take over the Premier League side, considering how things ended in Lille.
According to reports, the 49-year-old borrowed from US creditors JP Morgan and Elliott Management during his tenure and left with the club owing just over half – £107 million (US$150 million) – of the £195.7 million (US$276 million) he acquired."
It sounds like he is only offering half of Gao's asking price for the club. That's all he could borrow after he failed to pay back all of the loan he took out to buy Lille.
On the plus side, Lille were very successful on the pitch when he was owner and still are now.
What happened at Lille:
