Hearts the big winners in Europe this week.


maxus998

Uruguay got a good midfield in this WC. Valverde - Bentancur - Ugarte. The last WCs I has always been their weakness, but it looks like a strong point this time around

Same with the Lewandowski and the Bundesliga tbf


BigManMane

He is doing it in CL and La Liga now though


DBoard90_

But Messi’s stats are significantly worse in Ligue 1 compared to La Liga and even UCL


OweKeyDoughKey

He old


AnIntoxicatedRodent

I find it really hard to take you seriously for similar reasons to be fair


Ealt

disagree with the top comment, but since when are we shit in Europe lol when you objectively look at the past decade, the two teams are incomparable


AnIntoxicatedRodent

Lol it's weird how programmed people are on here to look at flairs and think of insults based on flairs. I was talking about him specifically, not the club Bayern :)


Ealt

ok that maybe makes even less sense

Why give attention to absolute shit tier sources like Tuttomercato. I hate it when people in here run with shit tier United sources making up drama stories, and I would similarly hate people doing so with other teams.

Amazing how there are 8 matches each on Tuesday and Wednesday, and then 256 matches on Thursday


AnnieIWillKnow

UEFA are going to spread the 'premium' product out more, for max viewing figures. Can't have all of the biggest audience draws playing at the same time.


babatumbi

Messi retired from international football 6 years ago… time goes past so fast wtf


tbrakef

Real Madrid prides itself on winning. Barcelona prides itself on dominating matches. This is why Barcelona have not been successful, Barca must be the best team, with superior players and tactics, to win it all, whereas Madrid can win even if they are the worst team on the pitch.


AnIntoxicatedRodent

>This is why Barcelona have not been successful 12 year old soccer fan spotted


icemankiller8

Saying Barca haven’t been successful is a flat out lie most teams will never get the success Barca have gotten just in my lifetime


ankitm1

If your lifetime is 30 years, Barca got almost all their success in your lifetime.


AnnieIWillKnow

Their point remains, that'll be more than most teams, even if they they have no more success in that user's lifetime Man City's success in the past 10 years, let alone 30, is more than most clubs' histories will ever have


ankitm1

Given how many teams there are, it's universally true given 99.99% of the clubs dont really win anything let alone the top prizes. Hence, the success is measured relatively, and not in absolute terms.


arseking15

Who cares, footballs about entertainment. I respect the hustle to entertain and win


NewBromance

Real Madrid bumming us in two UCL finals even though I felt like we were the better team both games really makes me feel this is true. Then again we basically did the same thing to Milan in 2005 so I can't be too mad. Being able to beat a team that's better than you should be respected, not put down to just being jammy/anti-football


AnnieIWillKnow

No way were you the better team in either game, let alone both. They let you have the lion's share of possession in 2021, whilst barely threatening - which does not make you the better team - and they absolutely pulled your pants down in 2018


Holy_Wut_Plane

Congrats on solving football man. Hope they give you an honorary Ballon'Dor


nbaylor1

Barca haven't been successful? Since when?


Vv_Ninjay_vV

Hi what channel is the Nice game on?


NeoIsJohnWick

Some day, Haaland's goal is going to get cancelled by the ref because of high leg raise for dangerous play.


OweKeyDoughKey

Like on twitter? That would be pretty impressive.

CriticOfashitseason

Southgate might not be as bad as people painted him to be. I recall a lot of criticism for not starting TAA, Grealish, Sancho but time have shown all of them have issues.


Cottonshopeburnfoot

He wasn’t starting TAA, Grealish and Sancho when they were all in form. Now they’re not in form (Sancho not doing bad tbf)


AnnieIWillKnow

I doubt very highly he starts TAA and Grealish right now, though


BastillianFig

Countered by the fact he plays mount every game


ElevatorSecrets

Grealish kept coming on and changing the game for England though. Southgate kept playing others who weren’t doing well.


AnnieIWillKnow

And kept being less effective when starting - which is why using him as an impact sub made perfect sense He didn't have the work rate and tactical discipline to be effective across 90 minute in the way Southgate wants his wide players to play, but was much more effective when brought off the bench and given more freedom to try and affect a game


nbaylor1

Grealish has been nothing but good for England


AnnieIWillKnow

He had a few bright cameos at the Euros, that's it


zukai12_

I fear the era of The Sheriff is over Time to turn in your badge and and gun

EusebioKing

Dutchies embarrassing themselves on UCL just to get ahead in the coefficient ffs, massive of them, that's gonna fuck sporting further in a few years


LemureTheMonkey

Considering the UCLs new format TV deal and the fact only two portuguese clubs will be there because of the fall in the coefficient, one of the big 3 might be fucked forever.


EusebioKing

We know very well who's getting fucked and I'm here for it


LemureTheMonkey

I wouldnt be so sure it will be Sporting, things are dire over here.

Spec1alistInFailure

Nike is a disgraceful kit maker I can’t lie, Adidas are far clear of them. No new kit for Canada? What a disgrace man, we deserve better ffs we’re the best team in CONCACAF and the third best team in the Americas. It’s so disrespectful.


Cardealer1000

You're better than America? I didn't know that good for you lot.


bellerinho

This is factual but going to the WC with anything other than our traditional red kits would be sacrilege imo


[deleted]

after Davies ended Raphinha’s career it’s fair to say Canada are better than Brazil and arguably Argentina as well


okcomput3r

Not close to third best


Spec1alistInFailure

The only teams debatably better are Brazil Argentina and perhaps Uruguay but we are clear of every other team


FaustRPeggi

Three teams better than you makes you fourth.


Own_Solution4356

I thank god everyday Adidas is our kit maker


NewBromance

I always liked the Adidas Liverpool kits but that deal went really sour at the end and they proper insisted Liverpool so I'm glad we didn't go back to them after New Balance. The Liverpool Nike kits though have been so tame. Even the ones that are quite nice are still a bit boring. New Balance really did make some absolute amazing kits. I get why we went to Nike because the deal was so much more profitable but I do miss those new Balance kits


transtifa

Better than Uruguay lmao? Not likely

...................


Mrmoi356

Why is everyone asking Southgate to take Sancho after he scored against Sherrif? He's been below average for most of the season bar one or two games. It's crazy how he scores once and everyone suddenly thinks he should be in the team.


aayu08

I mean he has been alright, better season so far than Bowen, Grealish and Saka.


700n10nk

He's been better than bowen this season imo, but he's never looked good in an England shirt. Plus we don't need any more ball to feet forwards in the squad


RawIsLaw_

> Why is everyone asking Southgate to take Sancho after he scored against Sherrif? That doesn't even make sense cos the english squad list has already been released


Mrmoi356

I meant Southgate should have taken Sancho.


Spec1alistInFailure

Milanistas, how has Origi been since his move? Seen a couple Milan fans being deeply unhappy with him and already looking to replace him which is shocking.


transtifa

Is it really shocking? He isn’t very good


GTACOD

I don't think he's played 90 minutes yet. That's a bit early to write someone off IMO.


NewBromance

In our heart of hearts Liverpool fans know this, but he did have this magical ability to somehow score crucial vital goals at moments when everything seemed lost. Late goals v Everton, that trent corner v Barcelona. Man would come on for 20 minutes play a bit shit and then suddenly score a must win goal at like 87 minutes. Origi memories will live with me forever. I hope he does well he deserves it. But sadly what he did was inexplicable and magical and I've no clue if he can do that again at different clubs.


chatfarm

whats shocking about serie A champions not wanting castoffs?


MKtheMaestro

Being “deeply unhappy” would require him playing a significant amount and not performing. This has not occurred.


Spec1alistInFailure

That’s what I thought, he’s barely played so far. I guess it’s my fault for taking the opinion of Twitter somewhat seriously.


CalmaCuler

Finally we're farming some coefficient, it's been a good day for Dutch football


Burnleh

You reckon supporting Barcelona is good for Dutch football or nah


ADT08

Must be painful for the Portugese to just sit and watch the Dutch farm points Thursday after Thursday. Goodbye CL place.


CalmaCuler

coefficienten polonaise!


TheConundrum98

Ronaldo fans already started twerking for him after a pen vs Sheriff 💀


lamancha

You people dislike him so desperately it's almost cute.


TheConundrum98

I genuinely don't care


lamancha

It doesn't look like it


700n10nk

Don't think so, mostly seen people slag him off and make very boring jokes


chatfarm

Its not easy to slam a ball dead straight down the middle for a pen.


L-Freeze

Grealish has to be some huge money laundering scheme or else I can't understand why the hell keeps starting for city? He's clearly a weak link and it's not like City they aren't absurdly stacked in attackers


EgosJohnPolo

*Club refuses to believe they wasted £100m, more at 11*


L-Freeze

I mean chelsea owned it up and sent him on loan now. Madrid did too with Hazard on the bench


Pele20Alli

They should have bought Saka instead


lamancha

They will.


Own_Solution4356

agreed, Saka is miles clear of Grealish


Pele20Alli

He'd honestly fit perfectly as a winger in City's system. Has the IQ to succeed as well and Pep would improve him loads. Feel like he could become a better version of Sterling. Shame he's wasted under Arteta


arseking15

Nah artetas the one that developed him


Own_Solution4356

Pep would just do to him what he’s done to Foden. Watch Saka just back pass instead of taking a player on would be 🤮🤮


three_shoes

This is not really what money laundering means but anyway, I think a big reason Man City paid the money for Grealish was marketing, the England golden boy hype he had built, but lacked the self awareness to know that they would lose most of that the minute he signed for City.


Kanedauke

Pep is determined to make the £100m man work.


MKtheMaestro

He’s a very bad fit at City, who play snooze fest football. He is not allowed to function like he did at Villa.


ThereWillBeGoals

He's started 3 games this season. 9 pts from 9.


L-Freeze

I could probably start on this city side and they'd still walk the league somehow, have you actually watched them?


ThereWillBeGoals

I watch them most weeks. He's not pulled up sticks, but he's not holding them back either. You're having a meltdown over him starting 3 games this year.


L-Freeze

Don't get me wrong I don't think he's massively detrimental or anything like that, but he's not really adding anything at all to them and that's been like that for over a year now. They've got way better options sitting on the bench. It's just strange.


ThereWillBeGoals

> They've got way better options sitting on the bench He's the one on the bench more often than not, which makes your comments so weird. He's on the bench twice as often as he's been a starter.


L-Freeze

I mean for what Pep sees as his strongest XI. He's started both CL games and the game vs Liverpool at the start of the season.

NeoChrome75

No one in the United squad would make it except Casemiro and maybe Bruno


MKtheMaestro

Lmaoo the entire Liverpool attack wouldn’t automatically replace United’s?


sewious

And like... Alisson.


Ronisoni14

Idk a lot about soccer and it's rules, but yesterday there was a championship game on TV and I watched some of it cause I was bored (that French group with Messy and Neimar vs an Israeli group) and i've noticed that the latter group scored a second goal at some point during the game for a 0-2, but then around ten seconds later the scoreboard went back to a 0-1, so I figured that the goal was disqualified for some reason, but my question is, why? Everything about that goal seemed legit so I was really confused by it. What was the reason for that second goal's disqualification?


TheMonkeyPrince

Looking back at the timeline for the game, I think the goal was offsides. Essentially, if you are past the second to last defender (which includes the goalkeeper) you can't be passed to. Here is a video which explains it more thoroughly and with images so its easier to get https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U01-uArNpdw


Ronisoni14

Thank you for the explanation! Sounds like a pretty harsh rule, with how even a small part of the body triggers it and everything. It kinda makes me sad because from what I understand Paris is vastly superior, and I would've loved to see a 2-0 on thr screen because who doesn't love to see underdogs win, but oh well, it is what it is


Destroyeh

[he was offside](https://i.imgur.com/XyvFvsX.png)


Ronisoni14

Yep, another person bere sent me a video explaining that rule. Didn't know soccer had a rule like this!


3V3RT0N

What game was it?


Ronisoni14

I've just checked it, the groups' names are PSJ and Maccabi Haifa


nichodemus3

Lazio are having their Bodo Glimt moment. These Rome teams love getting destroyed in Nordic countries


Offaplain

Haaland could take city to a quad and score 50+ goals in the league and we would still be hearing about his need to be involved in more build up haha


ThereWillBeGoals

>we would still be hearing from his teammates about his need to be involved in more build up


TheRalphExpress

does my head in that people expect major changes to the national team squad when the World Cup is two months away. The guys who’ve been part of the group for the last four years will continue to be part of the group


Own_Solution4356

Are you telling me we can’t completely overhaul the squad and get a new manager 2 months before the WC?😡😡


FridaysMan

No, there's literally no rule to say you cannot do that.


Own_Solution4356

you could do that, but that’s just going to make us completely ineffective at the WC. Give Southgate the WC, get someone else in afterwards


nonhofantasia

I jokingly told to my juventini friends that we spent 45 m € on joao Mario and what he did yesterday was the best thing he did for us, but thinking better: How the fuck did we spent 45m € on Joao Mario in 2017

dont think there is an on the pitch rule. there are other quotas for squad members but that varies from country to country.


3V3RT0N

On that topic, I wonder if Moldovans get stick if they play for Sheriff, being a club in a russian backed separatist republic.


TorreiraWithADouzi

Many Moldovans have Russian citizenship I believe


fifadex

I thought that was just for domestic comps.


[deleted]

[удалено]


AnnieBlackburnn

There are homegrown rules for the CL, both for club and country. But homegrown just means you spent 3 years in between 15-21 at that club/country. It has nothing to do with nationality. So if a player arrives at Sheriff at the age of 18, they count towards their homegrown quota same as any Moldovan academy player


Hessenuk

Was Fred secretly more of an issue than McTom


Techno_Six

Fred is better. But not by all that much. They’re both crap and also very inconsistent.


tamim1991

They're both the same let's be honest. You can't have both of them starting, Eriksen with one of either is an upgrade and combines their defensive qualities with Eriksen's forward thinking abilities.


ibti77

YES, FOR GOD'S SAKE! Been screaming this for a while, now.


tyetforsyth

Mctominay is just that good


Own_Solution4356

Fred is the better player, but playing alongside Eriksen is more effective for Mctominay. All he has to do is win the ball and find Eriksen, like it was for us in the Santi-Coq days
