The Champions League thread

429 replies • Last post
Click to show this thread's original post ▼

We've got a premier league one so how about a Champion's League thread?

I was just about to post "what a goal Suarez" but just now who else but Thomas Muller has popped up 6 yards out to head in an equaliser for Bayern against Juventus. Juve decided to park the bus after a good first half and they have paid the price. It is hard to see Bayern not going on and winning this tie in extra time now.

Yeah a salary cap can definitely make leagues more interesting and varied. But the problem is getting everyone to do the same. If the premier league brought one in for example, all the players would move to Spain or Germany or wherever else didn't have one. I'm not sure how you can solve that one.

I don't know. Maybe they could look at splitting up the sponsorship money between all the teams in the champions league or premier league evenly instead of giving more to the ones that win. The teams that have the most money mostly win and they get more money which reinforces the advantage over the lower teams. That will probably never happen either, it's too socialist for the guys who all own the big teams. Plus it's pretty clear from the stupid ideas coming from the likes of Agnelli that actual sporting competition is very low on their list of priorities.

I was going to post a rant about how stupid and greedy this European super league idea is.. then it all collapsed as quickly as it appeared. Thank goodness.

But in all the fuss it seems to have been missed that UEFA approved the idiotic expansion to the champions league that Agnelli and co were after. Maybe the super league was all a big smokescreen and bargaining tactic to draw attention away from that while they got what they wanted anyway.

Do you think so Ed!?

When I think about it you could be right...not sure, haven't been following the news lately but even I heard of this...in fact it's already gone before I even heard of the Superleague idea probably🙂

It is hard to say. I mean at first I thought surely they could not be that greedy, presumptuous, and stupid at the same time. They surely could not have thought that all the fans and other clubs would go along with their mad scheme. So I thought maybe it was a bargaining tactic.

But the more I have read about it and the things said by the organisers, it seems they really were serious and really were that far detached from reality. It goes to show how far the game has gone away from the principles of sport towards just money, money, money over everything else.

If that was to be shown on TV..it would be the only reason I'd regret not sawing the game😉

Is Pep cursed...or City..?!😉

Probably Tuchel thought the same thing about himself before this one...and now I think it's the PSG & City teams who are cursed...but I have nothing to do with that...I swear...ops I meant sware😎

I think Chelsea deserve this victory, the players were perfectly organized and were able to resist Manchester City's offensive will.
