I'm a little late, but I'll start a new one for the new year.

Right now, as I type this, we have El Clasico in a Spanish Super Cup semifinal on big ESPN, and Juve v. Inter for the Supercoppa Italiana on CBS Sports Network.  Weston with the start.

Good soccer watching on a rando Wednesday afternoon.

This opening was bad ass. I really want to see a game at the San Siro  

 

Seems kind of similar to Buenos Aires and River v Boca…

Only the old world Italians are not as passionate as the New World ones.

How else can you de-nazify Britain unless you move the football back to Russia?  Think about it...DUH!

Saw an interesting stat today: Ancelotti became the 1st manager to win top flight titles in Europe’s top 5 leagues: Italy, England, France, Germany, and now Spain. Also he’s in the semis of the Champions League/European Cup for the 5th consecutive decade as player and manager.

Pretty impressive.

WOMEN’S Champions League Final is this Saturday on some [WTF?] YouTube channel. 

Lyon (or Lille) has kicked ass over the last decade and they are playing Barcelona femenino/a 

A team that hasn’t lost this season. 
And they haven’t tied either. 👀

@ 12pm CDT

Lyon 3 Barca 1 early in the 2nd half

 

This is some . . .

Holy Fucking Shit!!! 
 

Barça Chicas hadn’t lost or tied all year and then they got their shit packed in the first half by the Lyonesses.

An all-time team in women’s or men’s fútbol and they fumbled at the one yard line!

I am going to post this across a few threads, because it should be widely seen, read:

https://www.theguardian.com/football/2022/jun/07/uefa-safety-consultant-quit-expressed-concerns-february-steve-frosdick

Revealed: Uefa safety consultant quit and expressed concerns in February

This wasn't just a little guy, but a high ranking consultant within UEFA. He had his role diminished since Aleksandr Ceferin took over as UEFA President and installed Zeljko Pavlica as the head of UEFA security. Pavlica and Ceferin are close friends with Ceferin being Pavlica's best man at his wedding in 2018.

Steve Frosdick is the career security guy that quit earlier this year, former cop turned career stadium security official (2-3 decades of experience). He had expressed concerns over the direction that Pavlica had taken security:

Quote

He is said to have become seriously unhappy with the direction of the department which since last year has been headed by Zeljko Pavlica, a close friend of the Uefa president, Aleksandr Ceferin. Frosdick is said to have believed that Uefa’s professionalism, expertise and development were being undermined, and he rejected a proposal to revise his contract, that would have downgraded his role.

Four months after he quit the Europa and Champions League finals occurred each with their own issues. The Champions League issues are well known. Europa saw issues like a lack of water at the venue, despite the temperatures. 

 

The main point here though is that it continues to appear UEFA ineptitude and not fan behavior was the cause of the issues surrounding these finals.
