    2020/21 UEFA Champions League: The Road to Istanbul (Not Constantinople)

    Which sets up a (probable) Battle of the Petro Dollars .. I think City are going to be in for a bit of a shock.

    2021 Trade Deadline

    CBJ picked up half of Foligno’s remaining cap hit - which probably accounts for the overpayment. I guess we’ll see how much Veteran Presence, Grit and Veteran Know How helps in the playoffs. As a long suffering Leafs fan I’d have preferred actual goals and assists instead of the intangibles...

    So .. if Spurs beat City to win the League Cup .. or City wins (in the CL) .. then Spurs are in the Europa Conference? ( and they don’t finish 5th or 6th)

    Guessing the worst possible European placing would be the new Europa Conference (Or whatever it’s called) . Not much prize money, no path to the CL .. and tons of useless fixture congestion.

    Which is why they aren’t going to make Top Four.

    Bringing Bale on now is an admission Mou views preserving a tie was more important than going for a win.

    The Athletic had a really good article on the Kane-Spurs relationship and how difficult it will be for a Harry to force a move. The primary obstacle being Haaland Mbappe also being on the market. They are years younger and far more attractive to the two or three teams that could conceivably...

    And in a perfect world neither would be VARed because it wouldn’t exist.

    That was my thinking as well. But , given Pogba got away with a similar but far worse offence it wasn’t happening.

    Well, FFP has been a disaster because it’s more or less unenforceable at the super club level. And one could argue it has been a success given its real purpose was to prevent another Chelsea or City joining the ranks. I don’t see a salary cap doing much , if anything to suppress the spending of...

    Big Big Big win for Newcastle. Very bad news for Fulham .. and maybe even Burnley

    Wow .. Alan Saint-Maximin taking over the game after coming on as a sub .. an assist and a terrific dribble for Newcastle’s second.

    Burnley vs Newcastle featured another VAR abomination where Burnley’s Tarkowski should have been sent off for a red card for dangerous play , not to mention a PEN in the Burnley box. If anything qualified as a Clear and Obvious Error this would be exhibit #1 But nooooooo .. VAR ruled Tarkowski...

    Well .. much better second half .. now they have a chance, if not a good one.
