In all my years on this forum, I never realized there was a "European Football" thread. Awesome.

I am a Dortmund fan and actually got back from visiting Germany just over a month ago. A BVB game was a must, and it was simply amazing. Considering their current form, I got lucky with the game too as they beat Gladbach that night.

How short of a leash is Favre on? Drawing against league worst Paderborn was painful (despite the comeback to get the point) and any League title hopes are going to fade quickly if they drop any more points.

I'm so sick of Dortmund going to Munich and completely shitting the bed. I don't ever expect to win there, but they constantly get blasted by 4 or 5 goals. It's got to be in their head at this point.

I'm a BVB fan too and I'd love to watch a game at Signal Iduna Park one day!

Personally, I'm more interested in winning the Pokal than the league. Why? Because when it comes to championships we've already surpassed Schalke - we now have 8 titles and they have 7. But they still have one more Pokal than us!

Well he's the only one in the field who isn't a lazy overpaid jackass. Jadon Sancho wants to be the new Ousmane Dembélé apparently and fail just as badly. Julian Weigl could be outrun by my mom and even if he caught up he wouldn't bother tackling anyone. Manuel Akanji is amazing, great offensive midfielder for the opposing team. I could go on any name EVERYBODY but you get the idea.

Marco Reus has come out and defended Favre, which will probably buy him a little more time. We'll see how they do today against Barca...but if they drop more points this weekend to Hertha, it may not matter.

Well when Marco Reus made his breakthrough in Mönchengladbach, who was their manager? Yeah kinda obvious he'll defend him.

What do you know, even Astana is too tough an opponent for Manchester United these days.

It's not like they sent their best squad though...
https://www.uefa.com/uefaeuropaleague/s ... index.html

And they're still leading their group and have advanced to the playoffs.

Steve Harris being a West Ham fan is nothing new, but now the band and club have made a shirt together:

Tomorrow Gladbach vs Freiburg. If Freiburg wins, both Bayern and Dortmund are out of the Champions League ranks. If Gladbach wins, both Bayern and Dortmund are far removed from the title race.

My club have just appointed an Austrian manager named Gerhard Struber. The Austrians are way more German than the Germans these days.

So first Dortmund match after the winter break, against Augsburg, Haaland on the bench. Augsburg leads 3-1 after an hour, Haaland comes in, scores a hat trick. Sancho also got one in so now it's 3-5 with a few more minutes to go. Now that's a winning transfer.

He's already starting to suck, he only contributed two goals to today's 5-1 win.

Rumour has it that Newcastle United will be Manchester City on steroids, it says they were bought by Saudi Arabia. Not a private business from Saudi Arabia but literally Saudi Arabia.

Glorious day for Canadian soccer :D Christine Sinclair scores twice in an 11-0 (lol) win over St. Kitts & Nevis, to become the world’s all-time leading international goal scorer.
https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/49925779
Also, the rumours about Spanish help in bringing the Canadian Premier League to Ottawa have already come true! With the season set to start in just a couple months, Ottawa’s in. I like the sound of “Atletico Capital”.

A 2-1 at home isn't amazing but still Haaland and Emre Can were just incredible transfers. Haaland because he can score pretty much everything, Can because he's already holding everything together and is the perfect fit for the very different style of play of Axel Witsel.

My club just made the biggest transfer in its history, selling a soon to be 31 year old centre-back for 5 million Euros to Chinese club Dalian (coached by Rafa Benitez). Only Zlatan Ibrahimovic to Ajax and Alexander Isak to Dortmund have been bigger sales from Sweden.

Never been a fan of away goals as a tie-breaker in two-game series. And the CONCACAF Champions League Round of 16 between Montreal and Saprissa confirmed my dislike. Game 1 in Costa Rica ended 2-2, so all Montreal had to do at home was not lose... and that’s exactly how they played. Desperately dull, nothing happened. I’m happy Montreal advanced but dear lord that was a struggle to keep awake.
I say, if you’re tied after two games, play some overtime. No more letting teams be intentionally ass-useless to protect leads they don’t really have.

Yeah, the away-goal rule should be abolished.

Anyway, here are the round of 16 in the EL:

Istanbul Baseksehir-Copenhagen
Olympiacos-Wolverhampton
Rangers-Leverkusen
Wolfsburg-Shakhtar Donetsk
Inter-Getafe
Sevilla-Roma
Eintracht Frankfurt-Basel
LASK-Manchester U

Olympiacos eliminating Arsenal would under a normal season be a higher achievement than eliminating Wolverhampton, but this season, Wolverhampton are better than Arsenal in the Premier League as well...

Arsenal were total shite in that game. I wonder how those who hounded Wenger out of the club feel now?

I can actually see Wolves winning this competition and being in the Champion's League next season - four years after being a mid table championship club.

Yup, Wolves are definitely a tougher opponent than Arsenal. Although I am sure you realize how fucking epic it is to win the game at the 119th minute...

Fun fact, Wolves got our main right winger in January (Podence) and we did not get a replacement either.

Maybe this is more common in other countries but today FC Saarbrücken became the very first amateur club in history to make it to the semifinals of the DFB Cup (German equivalent to FA Cup.)

I could have posted this in the Corona Virus Thread, but I’ll put it here instead. Italy has banned fans from all sporting events for the next month:
https://www.cbc.ca/amp/1.5485930
I hope fans show up outside the stadiums and protest loudly enough that the team can hear them inside! “lo ho scelto subito la Reggina. E stata una scelta fatta con il cuore!”
