I mean, you're the one asked me questions and said you're interested. Whatever.
What's not conductive to a discussion is getting offended at harmless things.
It's just baffling. Like, a few pages ago y'all were complaining of America…
The way people use the phrase "well it's just your opinion" as if it adds anything to a conversation. Well yes, of course it is my opinion, what else could it be? I have my opinion, you have yours, we are debating them. Declaring …
That is not what I wrote, but I think it's telling that this is what you chose to read into it
The "apery" comment refers not to any particular "it", but to the idea of copying another format without accounting f…
Like, see how I wrote "league competition"? MLS is not one, it's an American sportertainment format, that exists outside of a traditional league/cup paradigm. In fact I am baffled at the existence of a US Cup, it makes no sense, like NHL a…
Closed leagues with conferences and playoffs vs promotion/relegation is mostly a matter of sports as entertainment and commerce in the States vs sport as culture and community and local pride everywhere else.
Different origins, different objectives,…
Sorry for digging up a month-old comment, but I only now saw it, and there is a need to set the record straight.
It was I who said De Ligt's loss is more important. Danimal5981, in fact, had the opposite view:(Quote)
That's exactly what the rift was, some players not feeling up to working with this manager. Yes, it happens and it can be dealt with. You either change the players or change the coach. Spurs did neither and just let the conflict brew. Wheth…
I mean the whole ****show is the consequence of years of executive mismanagement and there's not exactly much that can be done, but like, not making things worse by ignoring a dressing room rift would be a start.
To start off, signed a defender. Or two. Or four. Or just more fresh blood in general.
Wanyama is a write-off at this point, he isn't relevant really.
I don't believe for a second that no one wanted to sign Rose or Alderweireld. More like no…
Levy really dropped the ball this year. Poch squeezed the last juice out of this squad last season, but Levy refused to dish out some cash to sort out the unsettled players. Now guess what, he'll have to spend twice as much on Mou's salary AND still…
There's no way that everyone can be happy.
Some people want a thorough review, others want a quick "looks kinda on, eh, will do", these are by definition impossible at the same time.
Then there's people who look at the same pictur…
The plans are to maybe buy it closer to Christmas, if I have some spare moneys. I am not sick of this one yet, Pep probably has a couple more seasons in him, there's still UCL to win. Not sure if I'm going to keep writing it out though.

Braga back on best form, methodically dismantling the opposition. Two goals in the first half, and then saving energy for the upcoming cup game.
2-0 (Singh, Trincao)
Portuguese Cup, SF, game 2. Desportivo Aves (A)
Another youth player has signed the professional contract — Carlos Feijo is an extremely talented fullback.
MD 24. Feirense (A)
Yet another easy and confident win. Two goals in 5 minutes at about half-hour mark, and a third at t…
Portuguese Cup, QF. Benfica (A)
Benfica applied constant pressure and while it yielded some attaching chances (that Sa dealt with), it also left them open at the back and vulnerable to counters. And as you may know, we love those. So we a…
MD 13. Vitoria Setubal (A)
Not our best performance, but we made best of the chances we had. Singh seems utterly incapable of not scoring. Trincao picked up an injury and will be out for three weeks.
2-1 (Novais, Singh — Cadiz)
MD 14. (I…
I absolutely love it when Salzburg is doing great, as kind of an up-yours to the corporate energy drink overlords who have basically turned the team into a farm for their more prestigious team-toy from Leipzig. Especially while Leipzig loses to an u…
MD 7. Moreirense (A)
Great game for Braga, the opponents were absolutely destroyed. Again not a single chance allowed and tons created, we could have scored even more than we did. And that last goal is something.
4-0 (Luis, Esgaio-2, Pedr…
The CL/ EL glitch can end up a good thing in fact, because otherwise EA would have never gotten around to properly fixing the European qualification. And it needs to be reworked completely. It's been stupid for years, and each new tweak has only mad…
First time in a few seasons that Pep doesn’t have a European competition to play in. Wonder if that’ll make the domestic stuff any easier.

MD 1. Sporting CP (H)
The word "position" is redundant, I think everyone knows what those letters stand for. To reduce empty space, you could organize the text into single lines where possible. Where not, a possible solution is to align the lines diffe…
