    Can't see them winning it to be honest.

    A question didn't age well?

    Happy they didn't in the end anyway.

    They weren't great, but there's gotta be more chance of them stopping City than Atalanta.

    On their day etc etc

    Perhaps Neymar might have a good night or two where he doesn't try to beat half the opposition before losing the ball and throwing his hands in the air in exasperation at his teammates.

    Pigs fly etc, but I can live in hope.

    Good win for RBL against Atletico, two very competitive teams with no quarter given. As Brucie would say, "good game, good game".

    Was a shame to see Atalanta knocked out.


    Hopefully anyone bar a business franchise ran by a sheikh with dodgy FFP, now.

    Barcelona then. It's owned by its members.

    Well, yes.

    Their first shirt sponsor, a few years ago, UNICEF, Barca paid them (1 mill a season) iirc.


    Now that's a club.

    They've blown that credibility pretty spectacularly since then, though.

    ^ like many UN orgs (home to droves of overpaid entitled civil servants), although Barca without Messi are fairly ordinary away from home.

    Sure, in the day and age of Qatar winter world cups, and FFP tribunals being held atop of the Burj Khalifa, there's little choice but to move on from guitar buskers in Las Ramblas to some degree.

    It's just been said on BT Sport that Barca have spent more than 800 million quid since Neymar left and they're still reliant on Messi bailing them out.

    Have you been moonlighting, Ed?

    There is a lot of money sloshing around chasing a lack of quality. Considering the economic backdrop we face its embarrassing looking at the continued transfer market - they don't seem to have understood in the top flight yet. They certainly do lower down where it won't surprise me if we see clubs decimated through lack of gate receipts. Sad times ahead i fear but perhaps a new dawn for supporter run clubs.

    We've been saying it for years, but maybe now the chickens really have come home to roost (Arsenal have been cutting costs recently albeit at the wrong end). Unfortunately, I think the big clubs (and City) will still try and fuck the fans to cover their costs.

    ^ yep although the scouts were probably overpaid like agents. Its still all about the owners, trouble is they are owned by people who can afford to own them as a hobby, no consideration for the little people who really are what it should be about. I truly wish we'd have a re-think but of course money speaks and its long past the time when football's elite cared about fans, they have recordings and can play them to cover the silence now.

    Well that's a whole lot different to the Athletico game - game on.

    There's quite a few players who do well when they leave Arse - well done Serge, was a grafter and looks great.

    If you think Messi has humiliated Setien and his staff in the past...



    ...stay tuned for the latest episode. It will most certainly be the last one.

    Fuck me

    Barca losing 8-2.

    Now where have we seen that score before?




    That's almost as embarrassing as Arsenal and Spurs not having one single European Cup between them.
