Football: pool in to the Final Spur of the season

Recommended Posts

Just now, Philokles said:

Shame Union didn’t make it. Hopefully they become the first 2. Liga side to win in the playoff for what seems an eternity.

For the record. Last second tier team to win their play-off game.

Düsseldorf 2013 against (Hertha) Berlin.

But honestly speaking neither Union nor Paderborn actually deserved to win promotion. The race for promotion alongside Köln has been so utterly pathetic this year, this was really a lower quality version of the EPL race for the CL spots (alongside Liverpool and City).

I am just happy mordor did not luck out and have to stay down for another year. Hopefully they'll feel the cuts to their budget.

Matt Law is also reporting that Chelsea won't stand in the way of Sarri joining Juventus so long as a £5m compensation can be agreed. If the Juve links are accurate then that would be a great move and a step up for Sarri.

Romano has reported  that Conte is favourite to take over at Inter.

Mkhitaryan not participating in the Europa League final due to security concerns for himself and the Arsenal delegation. So fucking stupid.

Fun fact. In Chess they had to move a candidates tournament a few years ago (2010 I think), because Levon Aronian had similar concerns and said he would not play there. So they moved it to Kazan.

Ofc Lev has paritcipated in other tournaments there since (2015 World Cup).

Put it down as trivia, or as Mkhitaryan not really wanting to go there for security being not really surprising.
