You wouldn't believe what goes on here. Ultra groups traffic drugs and guns, people get killed and the government does nothing.


Wow that's terrible. I didn't know at all there was such problems in your country.

my team the no 4 team historically speaking of the netherlands fc twente got relegated. I blame the semi panicky coach switch early this season combined with a bloated selection of too many players reliant on skill and lacking real fighters.


My team were relegated too. We finished third bottom of the Championship with just 41 points from 46 games.

We didn't have any players with skill or fight. Well, we had one but he was on loan from Swansea City.

Sometimes football is just really really shite.

Juventus have bought Cristiano Ronaldo for 100 million euro plus some other fees, making it the fourth most expensive transfer in football history.

Maurizio Sarri is the new manager of Chelsea, which will be very interesting. And from Napoli, which since some time is managed by Carlo Ancelotti, he brings with him the midfielder Jorginho.

Juventus cannot lose with signing Ronaldo. Higuain will leave.

Nabil Fekir deal to Liverpool seems to be back on. I'd like to see us pick up a goalkeeper also, but it looks like it won't happen.

I was really pleasantly surprised by Atletico's performance last night. Never quite thought of following them.

So Mandžukić, Ćorluka and Subašić are retiring from Croatia's national team and there are rumours Modrić and Rakitić will do the same later on this week. Wonder what the younger players will be like under Dalić but I don't have high hopes, still.

Hehe, various European clubs were represented on a tifo painting from my club's victorious derby two days ago. It refers to their (Hammarby's) eagerness to establish "friendships" with other teams supporters:

I'm a big fan of Man Utl. Romelu Lukaku is just incredible. He just cannot stop scoring. I'm planning to visit old trafford manchester in the near future. It's gonna be unforgettable journey. Want to see some major attractions including The National Football Museum, Town Hall Manchester and Museum of Science.

Speaking of scoring... In case anyone have missed the astonishing goal by Fabio Quagliarella for Sampdoria against Napoli some weeks ago, it's one of the sickest goals I've seen. And I've seen alot of goals in my life as a football nerd.

Youtube: show


Also, what's upp with Schalke? They are in the Champions League, but in the Bundesliga they have zero points after five games...

Germany will host the UEFA Euro 2024. A bit boring with a country that's already hosted big tournaments in the past, like the World Cup 2006.

Speaking of yesterday, something very unusual happened: both Barcelona and Real Madrid lost, to Leganés and Sevilla respectively.

I know, but still it's boring that no other, more possible country was a candidate. Then again, if FIFA can place a WC in Qatar, then Turkey could have hosted the Euro.

So Barcelona without Messi defeated Real Madrid in El Clasico with 5-1 after a hattrick by Suarez. This means that after ten games, Real Madrid are down on 9th place!

And Leicester's owner, Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, died in a helicopter crash after their last game.

And it seems Lopetegui will be sacked. Apparently Conti will be his replacement.

It's not going well for Thierry Henry in his first attempt as manager. His Monaco keep going bad in the league, and in the two games against Club Brügge in the CL, they only got 1-1 away before losing at home yesterday with 0-4!

Another surprising result yesterday was Red Star defeating Liverpool with 2-0. Liverpool left Xherdan Shaqiri at home due to not wanting to stir up political emotions if he were to play in Serbia, since he and Granit Xhaka did some Albanian eagle gesture when celebrating goals in the World Cup this Summer.

Anyone been following the Man City and PSG leaks of late? Absolute disgraces of clubs they are. I've only been closely looking at Man City, but they've clearly been rorting the system and then bullied UEFA over it. Things like Ethiad only contributing £8m of a £68m "Ethiad" deal and setting up a company that would buy player image rights for £30m. Who was pumping the money into the new company? Abu Dhabi. They should both be punished heavily like banned from Champions League for 2 or 3 years because no monetary fine is going to do anything to them.

Yeah, sadly I don't think anything will be done either. They'll follow up on their threats of taking UEFA to court if they try to impose any punishment. It's a complete farce, the rules were implemented for a reason and Man City as well as PSG are unashamedly exploiting it any way they can. They're definitely not interested in acting in good faith. Although would it surprise anyone since City are openly associating themselves with a company that exploits human rights that involves slave labour?

UEFA still cannot get anything done. I've been out of touch a little, but how legitimate are the leaks?

Also USA sucks. Pulisic is a stud. We have some below average young players, that is cool to imagine one day being good. That's it. We were lucky we didn't get killed by England in that game. 3-0 could have been a lot worse.

I doubt it. Nations League is still a competition where it's a bit uncertain how motivated the teams are in various games. And one game don't mean much regardless. The Netherlands squad is far from the quality it used to have, and the Dutch clubs don't perform as well in the European cups as they used to.

I think the quality is there but the squad is mostly too young to be a consistent top rate team. I also think that the problem we had the past 4 was not the quality of the individual players but not having the right balance in the team and with some new (young) players the balance has been found.

Wantage Town’s match vs Almondsbury today in the Floodlit Cup* was postponed due to heavy rain! Which I thought was ironic :lol:

*For those who don’t keep up with the myriad of really, really semi-professional leagues lower down on the pyramid; the Floodlit Cup is open to leagues at Level 9, and some of the better teams at Level 10.

Since I discovered my paternal grandmother’s family came from Wantage, I’ve tried to follow their local team. Would be nice if there was some broadcasting of the lower leagues; but until then, many thanks to Youtuber “On the sidelines” for live streaming the Freds’ games!

I support my local team called PAOK .

Image

Here are our Ultras!!!


Image.

Sadly along with the atmosphere there is a lot of mumbo jumbo going with football in Greece. Hooligans, riots, open fights with the police damages to stadiums etc. I could go on like forever with how many idiots exisit within ALL football clubs. Sadly there is no exception in no team.

This year though we seem the best candidate for the championship -sadly it will only make us have 3 which compared to teams like Olympiakos who has like 45 championships or
AEK which has 12 or something. But oh well I do not support my team for titles or something just for the fans and the people who really love the team.



AGAIN WE ESCAPED FROM THE ASYLUM OH PAOK THE DOCTORS DON'T KNOW
AND WE SHALL COME AGAIN
FOR SINCE WE WERE KIDS
YOUR BLACK AND WHITE HAD DRIVEN US CRAZY

Prijovic is in a sick form right now! He is probably the sole reason we have gone undefeated in both the championship and the national cup until now. Even at times when we played awfully bad he just took the one chance he had to score! Truly an amazing player!

Well since you live in Portugal, where teams like Benfica and Port have a great history, it is of course more natural for the fans to want results from their teams. Here in Greece as I briefly explained people support their teams as ultras and hooligans. For PAOK playing in the CL is a dream.

Well, there's nothing wrong with supporting clubs like Porto or Benfica, I just think it's sad when fans of those clubs find it illogical to support other clubs just because they have less titles. You should support a club because you like the club, not because of its titles. :)

Bloody right mate! I don't think that you choose a club over logic or titles or whatever but because you like it. I for example also support the mighty Arsenal. Why? Because in 2004 my little brain got astonished by Tierry Henry and his boys and their star-level football!
