    The Special Ones (manager talk)

    Either AS or Marca was attempting to make the case that, because Xavi promised the club that he would not be a problem, there is a chance that he would waive the buy-out that he and his staff are owed. Right...

    No Offense, But.... (The 2024 Summer Transfer Window Thread)

    It was also a mystery to me that Veiga chose Saudi Arabia. I mean, I assume it was a financial decision, but he grew up in what seems to be a small town close to Vigo and was at a growth point in his career, not a "move to get the money" phase.

    April 24. 2024 Beat the Heat

    I’ve watched like 10 minutes of the Celtics this year and I know Tatum is one of the top-10 players in the league but those two missed shots are really hard to understand.

    Return of the Galácticos? Spanish Fútbol 23-24

    @rguilmar Oviedo is likely going to lose today, which puts them out of the top 6 and makes the next six games basically must-win. Yikes.

    Still Not the Super League: Champions League 23/24

    @Zososoxfan — the writer for AS, Alfredo Relaño, who I suppose is the editor and at least writes the main recaps for the site/paper, names only one Atleti player for being bad or even very bad — Molina. He says that those who’ve watched Atlético for years can name at least a dozen better RBs.

    Still Not the Super League: Champions League 23/24

    The Atlético match played out how one would expect given Atleti’s horrible away form this year and that they started the old dudes - Azpilicueta (34), Koke (32), Griezmann (33), Morata (31), Witsel (35), Hermoso (28 but plays both like a kid and an old man), and Giménez (29 but his body is like...

    2024 Masters

    Why? I’m curious and not challenging. I’m not really paying attention to impact of LIV.

    Still Not the Super League: Champions League 23/24

    Agreed on Correa. Memphis being out was really bad for Atlético.

    Return of the Galácticos? Spanish Fútbol 23-24

    The final was incredibly exciting. Mallorca really competed hard throughout, but Athletic was able to find that extra gear in the second half and played excellent football. That said, Mallorca was really close to winning it -- it would have been an entirely different outcome had the Mallorca...

    Return of the Galácticos? Spanish Fútbol 23-24

    The next eight weeks/matches are going to be fun for Segunda. There are 11 teams competing for the top 6 positions, with only 11 points separating 1st (Leganes) and 11th (Burgos). Real Oviedo's next three matches are against teams currently in 17th (Mirandes), 16th (Cartagena), and 12th...

    2024 CONMEBOL Copa America tournament

    I honestly don't know what explains the dip in Molina's form. My very unsophisticated answer is that Molina simply seems off -- perhaps too tentative at times, perhaps too unsure at times, perhaps too inconsistent at times. As a result, Simeone has opted to use Llorente over Molina, which...

    Mike Hopkins is out at the University of Washington. He finished his time there just a bit over a .500 winning percentage.

    I had no idea that Michigan was so bad this year. When was the last time Michigan won only 8 games?

    I had Atletico and Dortmund as lowest ranked teams, so that gives me some encouragement that Atleti can advance.

    Still Not the Super League: Champions League 23/24

    Vaya partido! I agree with you that Atletico was impressive. What a relief to actually win in penalties this time!

    Return of the Galácticos? Spanish Fútbol 23-24

    It is indeed baffling -- and very frustrating -- that Atletico is so poor away from home. I know that el Metropolitano can be loud and the fans offer tons of energy, but there must be something else going on to explain why Atletico is so shit when on the road. Sigh. Griezmann is clearly so...

    Return of the Galácticos? Spanish Fútbol 23-24

    There's some truth to the statement about aging, especially within the defense. There's clearly a need to build the next generation of defenders and load up with players within the ages of like 22-26. - Gimenez is 29 and very often injured (he missed yesterday's game due to injury) -...

    I forgot that you’re also an Alteti fan. What is the problem right now? I can’t really figure it out.

    Another Athletic goal. Total ass-kicking. Fortunately, work has prevented me from watching this shit show.
