    Yeah, when they stop blowing 4-0 leads....then we can talk top tier.

    PSG isn't a second tier team, they've been doing well in international competition for a long time

    Matches against Barca excluded, of course.

    Ref assist. But Barca are Barca. They've consistently been the best team in the world. It's wrong to say hey because you're not the Patriots you're not a great side

    To me they're in the same league as Manchester City and Dortmund. Great talent, but if you can't attach some results to that....

    I watch it when I can if it's on TV. Or when the Sounders play I'll try to stream it.

    Though they've become the Leicester City of MLS the way they disgrace the idea of "defending champs" by being shit this year.

    I live in Australia. I think you need satellite t.v for the local versions of those

    The club better use these next 2 years to form an exit strategy, we need a replacement competent enough to able to hit the ground running, not do a Man U and hire someone who'd be in way over their head like Moyes.

    The market for Champions league football managers is pretty bare. Look at West Ham. They've been on the cusp of the Champions League for years but are still stuck paying Slaven Bilic because what other options are there.

    There was talk a while back of Celtic and Rangers joining the EPL in an expansion fashion but it didn't happen. There are a couple of Welsh clubs in the EPL currently and even a Scottish team playing Div 4 or something.

    Who's winning UCL tomorrow? Zidane's my second dad but I would love to see the trophy outside of spain.
    I think RM will win but Juve are great this season.

    Like most neutrals, I don't want Real to retain the cup.

    Back to back CL trophies... Happy for Zidane but it's time for the likes of Bayern, Chelsea, Man United etc to reach that level again.
    Cuadrado just got one of the dumbest red cards ever here.

    In my opinion pre-season means nothing.

    USWNT just lost to Australia for the first time ever. Fairly proud of our women's team. Most women here play Netball but other sports like Cricket, AFL and Rugby have followings. Soccer often gets forgotten about.

    Apparently PSG are paying a third of a billion dollars to trigger Neymar's release clause from Barca. They're signing him to a roughly 40 million plus endorsements contract on top of it.

    I think only the two Manchester clubs would be able to afford him and even then they would probably have to do some book balancing.

    lol who gives a fuck about PSG? Why doesn't he go to a top 3 PL team?

    Because Wenger would just misuse him on their way to another disappointing season before they loan Neymar to PSG anyway.

    When you're one of the best in the world you don't care about domestic titles. PSG are competitive in the Champions League and the easier domestic schedule will help him stay fresh and pad his stats. He wants golden balls and he doesn't want to be under Messi's shadow any more.

    As for the PL you need that Arab Oil mega-billionaire money for that sort of thing. Only Man City really have that currently.

    Yeah Ronaldo is in big trouble.

    He should know better by now that the spotlight is on him and you can't do that shit.
