Haland and Sancho are awesome. Dortmund are going to make a killing when the sell them the next couple years. And then they can buy back Alex Isak.

Lol, so ridiculous. Barcelona were allowed to sign an emergency striker due to injury. They signed this guy for his release clause and the team that lost him (they are in a relegation battle) are not allowed to replace him.

La Liga continually bends over backwards for Real and Barca.

Too much sex: Club chief explains poor form in Romania

Gigi Becali, the flamboyant owner of Bucharest football club FCSB, formerly known as Steaua Bucharest, thinks he knows what is to blame for his team's recent poor run in the Romanian league: too much sex.

 

The 1986 European Cup winners, Romania's most successful club with 26 league titles, have failed to win their last three games, and Becali said after FCSB's 1-1 home draw against lowly Chindia Targoviste: "My players are making love with their girlfriends too often, that's why they aren't playing football so well lately."

The result left them fourth in the table, eight points behind leaders CFR Cluj...

Anyone follow bundesliga enough to explain why teams, especially the top teams like Dortmund and Bayern, have an issue with deitmar hopp spending his money to support his club?  Do they just not want the competition of another well funded club?  Who cares if tsg was a club team 20 years ago?

Bundesliga fans aren't big fans of teams that buy their way to success? Everyone there hates Leipzig with a passion.

Does Bayern not have a huge payroll?

Hopp was given permission to bypass the Bundesliga's 50+1 rule that is meant to keep teams locally owned and not run by billionaires. Theres a lot of people that don't see Chelsea, Man City, or PSG as great success stories for modern soccer. Also, Hoffenheim was in Germany's 5th tier not long ago. Pouring money in got them to where they are now.

This isn’t some random russian or longhorn billionaire buying man city or Chelsea. 
hopp was on the team or grew up in the area or both. And there’s 2 league teams already that had permission to be outside of the 50+1 rule. 
 

rules shouldn’t be such that small market teams cannot compete.

Well the Bundesliga has made it official and called off games this weekend, meaning the Big 5 are all on the shelf for sometime now.

So the way I see it:

EURO 2020 is now EURO 2021

The leagues will be able to finish up this season in the summer, in theory. And club play is good to go.

 

I gotta ask - assuming that, what the heck does that do to World Cup qualifying after this? That was supposed to be all of 2021. Now what?

Get rid of the fucking Nations League bullshit and 95% of friendlies. 
 

UEFA needs to fix their qualifiers anyway so teams aren’t playing year round perpetually to get into those two tournaments.

Update: The Will Grigg negotiations in episode 4 are one of the best sports documentary sequences I've ever seen. The level of access is, frankly, absurd. You can see why they're not making another season, the producers must feel completely snakebit.
