Baseless prediction - Mourinho.
Totally baseless prediction- Allegri. It won’t happen but I guarantee someone in the Italian press at some point will claim it’s a done deal.

With the two biggest Italian jobs likely vacant, the Italian press is going to have an awesome time with the rumors and headlines.

On a more somber note (but sticking to Italy), today is the 34th anniversary of the Heysel Disaster. On that day 39 Juventus fans went to a football match and didn't come home. One of the great tragedies of world football, and one that is too often forgotten.

Ronaldo's hat trick leads Portugal past Switzerland and into the Nation's League final; his last goal being the best of the bunch:

Ronaldo finished that as smoothly as he pays off women who accuse him of sexual assault to stay quiet.

I think she's filing in federal court from what I'd last read.

If CR7 actually said this as is claimed by Der Spiegel I don't see how it can be considered anything else...

I fucked her from the side. She made herself available. She was lying on her side, in bed, and I entered her from behind. It was rough. We didn't change position. 5/7 minutes. She said that she didn't want to, but she made herself available. The whole time it was rough, I turned her onto her side, and it was fast. Maybe she got some bruises when I grabbed her. (...) She didn't want to 'give it to me,' instead she jerked me off. I don't know any more exactly what she said when she was jerking me off. But she kept saying no. 'Don't do it' -- 'I'm not like the others.' I apologized afterwards.

Good game in the other semi-final; Rashford converted a penalty in the first half to put England up 1-0, but de Light answered for Netherlands in the 73' to tie it. On top of that, a Lingard goal was just overturned by VAR that would have likely been the winner for England.

In just a classic England move; Jon Stones has an inexplicable give away in extra time, leading to a break away for the Netherlands, but Pickford makes an amazing save, only to have Kyle Walker put it into the back of the net on an errant clearance.

Lol, Barkley, I bet @OilCanShotTupac liked that one.

Netherlands have been the better side for the entire game; England really didn't start the A squad here and was clearly hampered by important players having played in that CL final, but this looked like the England of old and not the spunky team that made the WC semi-finals.

Even bigger yikes from Stones to Barkley to... Depay there. Sets up Promes for the 3-1.

Walker's giveaway to Depay to spring Wijnaldum set up the situation deep in England's half to begin with

Lol, Sterling looked like a cornerback trying to lay-out Gronk on that collision with VVD.

England really is the gift that keeps on giving. It doesn't hurt that I ball with a bunch of Brits and they absolutely-ironically yelled 'It's coming home!' repeatedly throughout last summer's WC.

Yeah well I'm sure they note there is no shortage of failures on your end either.

Isn't Zoso spanish or portuguese or something? Either way he's got something on both the Brits and us.
