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

    I hope common sense prevails and they play the final at Wembley. Turkey is a mess right now with Covid and according to the Times, they are expecting 25,000 fans. It makes no sense to hold it in Turkey.

    New Euro Super league to be announced Sunday

    Well this is what Pep had to say, he didn't understand it either: "It is not a sport where the relation between effort and success does not exist. It is not a sport where success is already guaranteed or it doesn't matter where you lose. It's not fair when one team fight, fight, fight at the...

    New Euro Super league to be announced Sunday

    FIFA is corrupt , UEFA is corrupt, I think that's why I'm disappointed this was all over before it started. The hypocrisy is astounding . I wanted it to drag on longer, you even had Boris interrupting his Covid briefings telling people he won't let the English teams join. It was fun while it...

    New Euro Super league to be announced Sunday

    I find the idea that an Oligarch with questionable ties to Russian mafia and oil rich arabs who have been proping up City being dragged into anything pretty amusing. But he is right about one thing, Liverpool ownership were absolutely spineless in letting Klopp have to field questions about the...

    Scottish Fitba 2020-21: What's the Point?

    I'll wait until it's formally announced. He seems to have a good footballing philosophy.I just don't trust the Celtic board. They stuck with a manager for over a year that I wouldn't delegate to put out cones for morning drills. And everyone knew it ...but them.

    It's the international break. Game thread.

    The ref looked like Dracula . But a pale imitation of Ray Reardon. That’s all I have as far as analytics ... it’s just better this way . Why bother getting into the nuts and bolts . It’s hard to watch .

    Scottish Fitba 2020-21: What's the Point?

    Meh, to be honest, I don't blame them. It was expected. I mean, St. Johnstone fans were out in "force" in Perth after they won the league cup. And if we want to get all scientific, there's no evidence, anecdotal or otherwise, that shows spikes in Covid due to out door gatherings. At least none...

    2020/21 UEFA Europa League: Galloping to Gdansk

    Just a general question, has there been any evidence that lack of home crowds, because of Covid, has neutralized "home field advantage" statisically?

    I just saw the Rangers result. Impressive. Genuinely hoping they do well. Keep this up, and I may have to resubcribe to CBS .

    Scottish Fitba 2020-21: What's the Point?

    I'm sure he does his best to be a good father and dog walker, but he was way out of his depth being a manager. The writing was on the wall early. I think as fans, it's easy to say "for a man that loves the club so much he should have walked away, the damage he's doing is irreparable". For me...

    Scottish Fitba 2020-21: What's the Point?

    Dignity? Maybe my sarcasm meter is broken, aye, that must be it. If the man had an ounce of dignity he would have resigned 6 months ago as the car crash unfolded. His arrogance and ego were beyond belief. His lack of football management skills were there for all to see. He lucked into the job a...

    2020 PGA Tour

    I met Peter for the first time when I was a kid at Turnberry, early 80's. The BBC were doing the pro-am. He took me under his wing and introduced me to Seve and Lee Travino. He was just so nice to me. I'm sure there are things that have been brought up after the fact about his views on women's...

    Scottish Fitba 2020-21: What's the Point?

    I signed up for ESPN+ about 10 days ago to watch the Scotland games, I went with the monthly plan rather than yearly because I thought the SPL deal was dead. Now I regret not doing entire year to save a few bucks. If ESPN+ had been more transparent or had the ink dry on the contract I would...

    Scottish Fitba 2020-21: What's the Point?

    Yeah , I looked as soon as I saw TB's post and saw it on the schedule. I looked at this article yesterday:https://worldsoccertalk.com/2020/08/28/espn-acquires-scottish-premiership-rights-for-next-5-years/ UPDATE: In August 2020, it appeared that ESPN had acquired the U.S. rights to the...

    Scottish Fitba 2020-21: What's the Point?

    Holy shit. Thanks for that. I checked the ESPN+ schedule yesterday and no sign of it. I read an update yesterday that said the deal fell through. What is really odd, about a month ago someone from ESPN+ called me on a Sunday evening to let me know the deal was done. The following day...

    Scottish Fitba 2020-21: What's the Point?

    So the ESPN+ deal fell through, at least for this season. Signed up for Celtic TV....first time user. No idea about the quality. Signed up for " up to HD" , monthly ( in case it's crap) . Charged $28.66. I guess it will be used for the first time tomorrow morning.

    Given your minister is a man of the cloth, he probably believes in miracles because that was the only thing that was going to save Hearts from relegation last season. They were absolute garbage from the way the club was run to the product on the field. Making Levein both Director of Football...

    Scottish Fitba 2020-21: What's the Point?

    What's the point? You don't have to be a season ticket holder at the Nou Camp to watch scintillating football ( well, not so much this season) . Instead, you could be sunning yourself at palatial Rugby Park ( if there wasn't a pandemic) watching free flowing, counter attacking football with...
