How is it an anomaly? You are talking about easily half of world sport with just those - rugby has a cap, Formula One is going to a cap as well. 

Maybe your comment is about the USA more than the cap.

One of the biggest anomalies that. A country so rooted in capitalism and chasing the money has gone to great lengths to ensure a more even spread of wealth and resource distribution in its top tier sports. I suppose not having relegation helps quite a bit though.

It sounds like even wealth and resource distribution until you realise the team owners and billionaires and the system is established in a way to make the continually much, much richer

It makes a mockery of the league. We should have the same ball all season. Changing the ball halfway through the league totally ruins the integrity of the competition and this season's title winners should have a big asterisk next to their name. 

 

Null and void. 

Unbelievable, the fuckin' ball for chrissake, I couldn't read anymore after it said it'll reflect the intensity of the end of the season, how that happens fuck knows

Why isn't it just white or orange or like the boss red and white continental casey I had as a kid,with fuck all on it? 

Beyond ridiculous.

Nothing to do with a healthy amount of the top earners in US sport being African American while owners are almost exclusively rich(obviously)and white?

I liked the Liverpool page on Facebook as it seemed a good place to get the starting 11.

 

Now, every time Liverpool post anything, the first comment is some lad fro Africa or Asia saying how shit we are and how Liverpool are shit, with some shit pun/put down in garbled English. Im not against foreigners, but these are bad cunts. 

That last sentence made me spit my tea out.

As it’s Jimmy Greaves birthday here’s his debut goal for West Ham...Shame they don’t still occasionally have pitches like this anymore ....

Used to be great playing on these when you were a kid and coming in caked in shite while your mum went utterly ballistic

Fans. The Internet on the modern football fan. The amount of hate, bile and bullshit surrounding football on even the most mundane topic. I won't talk football with other people anymore in person, it's like talking politics or to a flat earther, it's a no win situation people are just completely blinded. 

 

I think its more me, the more I get exposed to other people's opinions the less I think of people. I hope the vaccine makes us all sterile and the species disappears with a whimper.

Hopefully just as Everton are about to lift their first title in 117 years

It’s like the aunty you always liked as a kid posting racist, Tory, Brexit little Englander shit on a daily basis to the point you start to think actually she’s a cunt. Just one of the reasons for coming off Facebook.

That's right, a good sliding tackle in the mud. There wasn't much that could stop you having a game of footy

A German and English club playing both legs of a European tie against each other in Bucharest and nobody seems arsed about it 

If they were playing in Romania then maybe they would. Instead of Budapest in Hungary.

    • I remember he said something about his dad laying into his mum. These sort of things can be passed down if you get what I mean.
    • I take both points.   Is our relationship with the CL greater than it was with the Football League trophy before 1992?   If we’re playing Barca, Real, Milan etc every season, then the excitement of playing them like we currently infrequently do, will certainly reduce.   I think the proposal for the ESL was massively flawed and I don’t think the format of the new CL is much better. I didn’t and don't necessarily have an issue with leaving the UEFA umbrella.         
    • Why do we need to play more games though? We shouldn't be embarking on any madcap scheme without a review of the entire fixture calendar. And with that I mean domestic cups and leagues, European and FIFA with whatever fucked up WCC plans they've got around the corner. And then internationals. Players need guaranteed rest. It shouldn't be at the expense of the clubs. Stupid shit like the Olympics needs to be sorted - it's U23s or it isn't. Personally I wouldn't allow any players to take part, football is just a distraction to the Olympics and is another way to damage key players.    We need to find ways to to level the playing field or at least close the gaps. Creating the CL as it is has made a situation you have to be in it or you're fucked. If it was a smaller league of just champions, the EL or whatever replaced it could be a great competition again. The same is true of the PL. That idea you fail for 1 season, fall off a cliff and your club collapses, is just fucking mad. It's fine teams can go down, but it shouldn't be to eternal detriment like it is now.    Instead of randoms running around doing their own thing and in their own interests, there needs to be a more considered approach. And cunts like angelli who one the one hand is representing 250 clubs across Europe while embarking on a project like this? It's just incredible.    Football is rotten - it's not just the top of the game here, just look at all the FIFA stuff from a few years ago. There corruption and dishonesty  everywhere. In a time it is so easy to track finances electronically, we should be thinking about a new governance process that ensures there is clarity around football finances and activities. 
    • I’ve never been less interested in a game that still actually has an affect on our season. Our players looking like shadows of their former selves.. Lack of fans coupled with the VAR disaster has left me disenfranchised. The ESL betrayal was the final straw.  I won’t be watching. I hope I get my enthusiasm back one day. It’s hard to still love a club that clearly holds me with such contempt.
    • You know the "I wish I knew how to quit you." line from Brokeback Mountain.    Aaron's wish finally came true.
