wow see this thread is not nearly as busy as it used to be. Watched an incredible game today between Juve and Olympiacos. Pogba getting better by the game. Man U made an awful mistake giving up on this kid

Whats up with Liverpool playing no one today. Just giving up only concerned about Chelsea this up coming weekend. Guess they don't want to play both events.

fascinating season in the prem!

i've started realising that, just like basketball, chemistry and confidence are SO important. Tactics and coaching players is very important, but getting players confident and enjoying playing together, understanding their roles is more important imo.

i don't think koeman is a great coach, and i don't think southampton has particularly great players, but clearly koeman came in, stabilised things, got everyone playing together in a system they understand and they rolled with the early momentum.

likewise, with my team, liverpool, we weren't as amazing as we got credit for last season, and we weren't as bad as all the criticism at the start of the season. Last year, i think rodgers kind of stumbled upon gold-dust and just went with it. Keeping things going requires a good manager, for sure, but yeah not sure he expected it to go so well, obv.

This season, he tried to maintain last year, same system, different players, and it wasn't working. We got way too much criticism, especially the signings; young players, no experience in the prem, and after 3 months labelled as "failures." Rodgers showed his adaptability, changed the formation, suiting the players better, solidifying and gradually some impressive performances started coming out. i LOVE Can! he's my favourite signing since xabi i think, or maybe torres. Markovic is so skilled, he'll come good i reckon. And what an exciting couple of showings from Ibe! Sell sterling for 60mill to Real and get Ibe in the team! :P

everything is so short-term, in terms of hype, and in terms of pressure on managers/players. Every game is hyped up to be "season-defining," and afterwards, every little detail is poured over and conclusions drawn for the WHOLE reast of the season!

the fight for 3rd and 4th is going to be so intense! Nobody knows what will happen with southampton, unknown quantity, they've had injuries and gone from impressive to grinding out results, but nothing suggests they'll drop off; man utd so unimpressive, yet 1 defeat in 18!? spurs coming good under pochettino- harry kane is great, but another example of a player benefiting from fitting a system and feeling confident imo; arsenal probably the most impressive of the teams up there, but always drop in the shit performance! so unpredictable, (therefore NOT the most impressive i guess! )

Very few people interested in soccer.

Anyways, didn't catch the Juve game, but did Pirlo play? They were so much better without him in the first leg and he looked so out of place.

Arsenal were well Arsenal. Bayern are still concerning me - Guardiola while may be a genius is slowly annoying me.

That said, I think I'm in love with the Athletico team. Simeone is just a bad ass, Griezmann is just so damn good.

And the EPL remains and overrated league ...

Pirlo didn't play. I agree they now have enough quality to play well without him. Tevez was unbelievable that night.

Honestly just glad to see juve back winning trophies and contending in ucl. Serie A took a huge step back though

won't change much, sad to say. Blatter needs to go, but I doubt how much of an effect even that would have.
