i’m off to see second division spanish football tonight, so no problems with me.
Tenis galicia look strong this season.
Think I’ll be at the pub. As is tradition
Ross McCormack hugging Usain Bolt after scoring on his debut in Australia is a weird sentence
Back to a earlier news story; Jardim. Let’s have a meaningless prediction of his next job:
- Man U
- Tottenham (after Poch goes to Real/Man U)
- Other (specify)
Thanks so much for posting this it was a lovely read.
Finally received the phone call from the Palace box office. Just confirmed what I already knew.
I’m in a poll-y mood. Okay, so for these ones, pick the 3 clubs you have a spot for in the 4 big European leagues (excluding the PL). Trying to get a consensus of the most universally liked clubs. If your from one of these countries maybe abstain from voting.
- Real Madrid
- Real Sociedad
- Eintracht Frankfurt
- Fortuna Dusseldorf
- Hertha Berlin
- RB Leipzig
- Werder Bremen
- Saint Etienne
@Aggpass always torn on Athletic, tbh. Can’t tell if they’re admirable or a bit problematic?
Probably a bit of both.
Most of my votes are based on familial links, nice kits and a couple of good players in my formative years rather than politics.
Athletic are mainly there for that joyous europa league tie against United a few years ago
Athletic Bilbao are great. shoot themselves in the foot a bit when it comes to recruitment, but they’re fantastic for the region because they pour so much into youth, have a great stadium, great fans, and have had lots of success in the past.
I would have voted for Depor had wonton not had the cheek to omit them from the poll:
New San mames looks mint. Might try a visit at some point
Heeeeeeeeeyyyyy La Coruña
Nobody has strong feelings about any French club beyond generalised antagonistic ones towards PSG. Stop lying.
Bordeaux - lovely kit
Lyon - enjoyable outsiders for the champos during the mid 00s
Had to draw the line somewhere, so I chose top flight teams. Would have picked Depor instead of Atleti if I gave myself the option.
Enjoyed Bordeaux winning the league to wrestle it off Lyon about 10 years ago.
When discussing foreign clubs
- Pure brexit pronunciations all round
- Hammy foreign accent. Dates and numbers in the language of the club
- Somewhere in the middle
