I wish futbol would publicly post the results of the calls of a game. Grade the referees like baseball does. Grade their accuracy. The cream will rise to the top. The others will be publicly shamed. This is neutral to teams.
Replying to epl money comments, It hasn’t done much has It? No chance of 2 English teams in the Champions final, Italians maybe.
Chelsea have spent £539m this season and won’t even play in Europe next season.
That must be a record.
Thanks for the kind invitation. I’m not living in Cordoba anymore or any place close anymore so it might be a while but if I happen to go there that would awesome
Best news of the week.
Mendilibar rules out Jordán, with tendon problems, for several games.
So I talked to Diego tonight and asked him the question…Sevillista o Betico? He said he was a Sevillista when he was younger, but then played for the :poop: Cantera and was forced to “pull” for them. He said now he is indifferent towards the rivalry and will watch all teams.
I told Diego about your comments and he smiled. Outside of the top 1%, old football players kinda fade away and become forgotten.
Thank you for asking.
Just placing this here:
We can add one more thing to our objectives pending for this season: make sure Joaquín doesn’t get his final wish as a bético. Use our derbi with them to ensure they don’t climb up to Champions positions.
Am I wrong to be vindictive?
Rayo must be having the most ‘avarage’ or ‘balanced’ season of all time right now. They take as much as they can give, hahaha.
Damn - Girona all over Real Madrid 2-0 in the 27’.
2-1 - I hate Vini. He’s such a Neymar
damn - 4-1 Girona 65’
Castellanos with four today! Girona should build the statue tomorrow.
Monchi posted on Twitter, and my best summary/paraphrase of part of his Tweet:
‘THE NIGHT IS YOUNG. WHY NOT KEEP DREAMING’
Let’s dream of cosas chingonas
Who’s ready for some math!?
Here’s how we sit after MD 33.
- We can no longer finish any higher than 5th, so we cannot qualify for Champions League through league play.
- Beating Real Valladolid in MD 34 could see us climb as high 7th. (This would put us tied for 7th with Girona and Athletic Club.)
- If Real Madrid wins the Copa Del Rey, 7th will get us into the Conference League next year.
All of that is moot if we win our next three games in the Europa League. If we come out playing like we did at the RSP against Man United, we have a very good shot at this. Anything can happen in cup competitions.
Subbing in for Ryan, FiveThirtyEight has us at about 9% chance of finishing top 7… and qualifying for EL Conference. that’s a long shot but not zero. And still worth some effort.
By contrast It has us at 20% chance of winning EL and qualifying for CHAMPIONS LEAGUE.
If you go with that, we should absolutely prioritize EL, but don’t give up of liga either.
Let’s just fucking vamos and win all our games. But especially those in the EL.
I’d you believe their team ratings, we were actually fortunate to draw Juventus despite the bigger name recognition.
They have us at a basically even 47% chance of making the final.
Oh, I agree with that. Juventus is a bigger name, but they’re a shell of their former self.
Juventus is 3rd in Serie A. Above Roma (7th) AND Champions League half finalists AC Milan (6th) and Inter Milan (4th). Yeah, they might be less than what we are used to see of them, but still a tough as nails team. I cannot get myself to agree with those stats. But we shall see.
I see they were given their points back too.
