    Other than United-Milan, big 4 leagues all separated. Were there restrictions by country in this round?

    Tottenham Hotspur 20/21: Do we suck?

    The talk about weak CBs is fair, but misses the point. Everyone describes Mourinho as the ultimate pragmatist, but I don't think that's true this season and rather he's a stodgy defensive-minded manager. To wit, clubs ahead of Spurs in the table and a quick assessment of their CBs relative to...

    2021 NFL: QB Carousel

    Well shit, sure seems like I read the Philly situation wrong. It doesn't make logical sense to me, but mea culpa.

    2021 NFL: QB Carousel

    I disagree that Philly is in the QB market. They spent a 2nd round pick on Hurts and are likely encouraged enough by what they saw last year not to draft another QB. Much like the Pats, they have holes everywhere, especially OL (although that might've been injuries, but I digress). Miami has to...

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

    I had the same reaction. I'd seen a lot of his technique in the box before and his strength--OK, you have a Giroud prototype cool. Then yesterday he was blazing runs in behind and showing silky touch. Hot damn!

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

    It seems like Barca should've tried to get out 3-1 if they really wanted to compete in the 2nd leg. Instead, they threw numbers forward and got hit on a wide open counter for 4-1. Goodnight.

    He's much less of a problem than Busi. This is Pique's first match back in 2 months. He's not what he once was, but he's good enough to start for Barca in 75% of matches.

    lol now Koeman with the sub for Dest. 20 minutes too late. Also not all Dest's fault. Putting Dembele in front of him was never going to offer any help.

    And set piece defending now letting Barca down. 3-1 to Les Parisiennes. Phenomenal ball in by Paredes.

    Barca absolutely reeling at the moment. Would currently take this score line and try to turn it over in the away leg.

    Dest and Pique looking rusty there. Dest was behind his defensive line mates to keep the hockey assist onside, then Pique botched a clearance attempt. MATS also tried to intercept the cross and missed. PSG superior on the day.

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

    Jeez what a counter by PSG. Insane skill on display by 3-4 players, likely one pass too many.
