    World football thread.

    Ronaldo's header for Juve yesterday (the Dybala finish ain't three bad either).



    I reckon he's got a future in the game.

    To think 11+ years ago he he was doing that in the CL final.


    I said it before and I'll say it again, when he eventually retires at age 45, they'll test his DNA and see it comes up as part cyborg, part European Cup.

    I'm currently watching Milan get absolutely battered at Atalanta.

    Atalanta 5-0 Milan at the moment with 10 to go. It should be more and the Rossoneri have been absolutely rotten.

    How the mighty have fallen.

    Can still name out their team from the mid 00's.

    Gattuso, Pirlo, Kaka and Seedorf in midfield, Shevplanko and Inzaghi up front, Maldini, Nesta, Stam and Cafu in front of Dida.

    Never mind their teams of the 80's and 90's.


    Would struggle to rattle off 3 of their players today.

    I supported Inter Milan, my brother liked Milan.

    But this at the weekend...

    I'd like to see what morning looks like
    Don't wanna drink pint after pint
    I wanna wake up without feeling sick
    But I can't cuz I'm a drug-abusing alcoholic

    Barca looking distinctly average against Granada TV in La Liga.

    It's all set for City or Liverpool to win the CL this year, innit?

    Oh. Joy.

    People wonder why Diego Simeone stays at Athletico Madrid...


    Most paid managers in Europe's top 5 leagues in 2020, per L'Équipe (per year):


    1 | Diego Simeone (Atletico Madrid) - €43.6m
    2 | Pep Guardiola (Man City) - €23.28m
    3 | José Mourinho (Tottenham) & Jürgen Klopp (Liverpool)
    - €17.52m
    4 | Zinedine Zidane (Real Madrid) - €16.8m

    That's a massive salary although Atleti are getting a decent return on their investment with CL football every season and occasional semi and final appearances; I would imagine a large proportion of his wage is dependent on this.

    A few hundred miles east and there's some bloodletting going on at Barca. It will be very interesting to see how this one pans out in the coming months.

    Lazio v Inter now.

    Lukaku (23 goals in 30 appearances this season) and Young both start for Inter.

    If Inter win they go back above Juve on goal difference.

    Lazio 0-1 Inter at HT with a goal from Young that he helped to create and then finish.

    I reckon Andreas Pereira would cut the mustard in Serie A.

    Lazio 2-1 Inter at FT. Good game and tight at the top in Serie A for once in a while.

    Eriksen came on for Inter, as did Sanchez, and both did nada.

    Both a pair of cheating clubs who've been assisted by a state. Admittedly, Real's collusion with the Spanish government goes back further, but you've got no history and are just a modern version of cheating.

    Tinpot club, you are.
