Update - I'd rather go to NY or Miami than Baku or Beijing 8)

I'm not sure what will happen to the current Euro competitions but I'd hazard a guess that it will be a crock of shit. The ropey cup should cut it's numbers and get rid of the group stage which would liven it up a bit. In it's current format if it was a dog you'd probably just put it down.

That’s a good point. I don’t agree with allowing American teams in but no worse than allowing in teams from Azerbaijan, Armenia etc

Article on the BBC site stating that uefa are planning on a 3rd European club competition that will increase the number of teams from 80 to 96

This is how the crooked committee make their cash and bonuses, long fucking drawn out competitions which really fuck players up through fatigue ( excluding the likes of Ozil of course 8)
I am a firm believer of quality over quantity, but these bastard European Conquistadors would rather dilute the quality to fill their coffers, bit like the Franco German European Federal dream.... :wink: :lol:

See how we are getting closer to a Euro League, which will decimate the National game, and you will be watching Championship games at Pub Football Prices, mark my words....

I won't be watching a European league. Football would be dead to me at that point.

I think the next decade will have the likes of Man city and psg dominate Europe.

With ladyboy gone and Messi getting older now, I think they will hoover up the next generation of superstars . It already feels like you have to spend £250 million a year now in the premier League to stay a relavent title threat, and how many clubs can keep doing this.

Olympiakos.......Olympi-fucking-akos :shock:

SteveO....SteveO wherefore art thou SteveO?? We’re off to fucking Athens again you beautiful bastard.

That quaint B&B in the dodgy part of town, the battered old bed with the noisey springs, you in full gimp attire, me running a bubble bath encircled with lavender scented candles, the passionate love making, the screaming, the ecstasy, the explosion of love juice all performed under the backdrop of the sensual tones of my Barry White LP.

The good times.....they’re fucking BACK baby :barscarf:

Love to get Celtic and slam those B'stards.
Galatasary for old cunting off the cunting murderers.
Olympiacos for the YAWN.
