they'd get the guillotine
Haaland is such a beast.
Liverpool blows right now anyway.Since 2008 the UCL winners have been:
Real Madrid (2014, 2016-2018)
Barcelona (2009, 2011, 2015)
The team that knocked out Barcelona (2008, 2010, 2012, 2013, 2019, 2020)
Sorry Liverpool, Bayern, Dortmund, Porto and Manchester City, Chelsea, Atalanta, Lazio, Moenchengladbach and Atletico.
I think the pandemic really hurt Liverpool. I don’t think it’s sustainable to play their style when you’re playing 2 games in a week on a regular basis off a short summer break.Liverpool blows right now anyway.
Pandemic and injuries. Losing Van Dijk was a huge blow.I think the pandemic really hurt Liverpool. I don’t think it’s sustainable to play their style when you’re playing 2 games in a week on a regular basis.
Liverpool is kind of in the same situation Dortmund is in. They can’t afford to coast in the league as UCL qualification for next year is not guaranteed.
Started with a program called Olympiatoppen in the 80’s. That helped with the rise of Rosenborg and Norway’s national team in the 90’s. Like Belgium, the size of the country means you’re not producing World Class talent at the rate Spain does but you can produce a generation every 20 years or so.Pardon me if this is generally known, but why does Norway have a bunch of world class players just in the past couple years? Dedicated national program or something a la Spain/Belgium?
Yeah, I just think a European Super League is inevitable at this point or, at the very least, regionalized leagues.Why don’t they just make it EPL Champ, Bayern, Real Madrid, Barcelona, PSG, Serie A Champ, Random Champion #1 and Random Champion #2 make the Champions League and be done with it?
I don't think I've heard of the "Swiss System"
