    Liverpool 2020-2021: John Henry Walks Alone

    Well then, ok that makes more sense. In the Super League thread I asked whether the 5% “European” revenue penalty only applies to CL/EL play. If Liverpool doesn’t qualify for a European spot, they would avoid the the penalty for attempting to join the league (other than the token amount for...

    Liverpool 2020-2021: John Henry Walks Alone

    Sorry if I'm wrong here, but doesn't Liverpool get at least a wild card spot in the new UCL setup pretty much regardless of where they finish? I thought they didn't have to worry about the remainder of the season based on their previous success, but I could very well be misunderstanding the way...

    New Euro Super league to be announced Sunday

    Does 5% of European revenue mean only from Champions League and Europa League play, or also from domestic leagues? Because that seems awfully light, especially for the handful of teams that won’t be playing in those leagues next year.

    Gameweek 35: Money for nothing & relegation-free

    Just watched the Sheffield United - Palace game and am thrilled that CP has clinched their 9th consecutive season in the Premier League. I was not confident of that before the start of the season, so am super happy about that. Since Palace and Union Berlin can’t seem to win in the same week...

    Gameweek 33: Not Super, Just Regular Leagues

    When fucking Peacock put up that graphic about Palace being 20-4-0 in their last 24 games when leading at halftime, this was a foregone conclusion.

    Gameweek 33: Not Super, Just Regular Leagues

    Union Berlin is up 2-0 3-0 on Werder Bremen after two quick goals a hat trick from Pohjanpalo. This sets up a very interesting final run for the upstarts. They're sitting 1 point behind Leverkuesen for 6th if this holds. Leverkusen plays 4th place Frankfurt still tonight. Union's final three...

    Gameweek 33: Not Super, Just Regular Leagues

    I'm watching Union Berlin and Werder Bremen. They announced that Union is spending 3 weeks in quarantine as a team, which started just after their last match at Dortmund. It's not clear to me if this is precautionary, especially after cross-town Hertha having 3 consecutive games postponed due to...

    EPL...educate me & help me pick a team

    As a fan of a team that has feared relegation every year since I've paid attention, this was not particularly nice.

    EPL...educate me & help me pick a team

    That's fair...but those fuckers want out and the feeling is quite mutual. I used to cover Apollo back in my previous life, and I want them out too. I hope that they dropped millions into the team, and don't get it out. We'd like a free stadium though ;)

    EPL...educate me & help me pick a team

    I'll put out my lonely request for Crystal Palace, again. I've probably told the story, but I went to London to see the 49ers play, and decided to go see an EPL game while there. I wanted to see a "big" club. The only way I could get tickets was to become a member of Crystal Palace, who were...

    New Euro Super league to be announced Sunday

    Well I think it was specifically about denying visas for the players to come and play in the league. Which would be one way for governments to squash this and score some major political points in the process.

    Tottenham Hotspur 20/21: José se foi.

    Joking/not joking that Mourinho might be managing Crystal Palace next season.
