OFFICIAL EUROPEAN FOOTBALL THREAD
« on: August 16, 2019, 10:54:00 PM »
Sorry if there is already a thread for European football, however having searched I can’t find one.

La Liga and Bundesliga’s 2019-20 season’s started tonight. Barcelona lost to A.Bilbao in the dying minutes as 38 year old Aritz Aduriz, in his final season scored an over head kick.

Over in Germany, Union Berlin, who’s club colours I often see abroad, start their first season in the Bundesliga tomorrow. Really hope they can stay up as East German sides have struggled since the fall of the wall.

Bayern drew 2-2 vs Hertha Berlin tonight. Dode Lukebakio became only the third player to score 4 goals at the Allianz Arerna vs Bayern (not in the same game I should add).

Trivia time - Christiano Ronaldo was the second player to reach that “landmark”. Which WBA reject was the first?

No second guesses needed.

Saw it on Twitter. Made me chuckle.

Great story over in Belfast, where David Healy's Linfield beat Azerbajani money bags Qarabag 3-2. A late Qarabag penalty probably kills Linfield's chances of reaching the group stages as they probably needed the 2 goal cushion, but it's still a great night for NI club football and Shamrock Rovers did get past Partizan around a decade ago to reach the groups.

On a more general point, it is a shame the 2 Irish leagues aren't joined together. I know itnis impossible for a number of reasons but I think it would become a half decent league, potentially on a par with Scotland.

Read somewhere he's banged in either five or six in all competitions for them so far this season.
It doesn't matter how many resources you have.
If you don't know how to use them, they will never be enough.
Oh, and always remember to defecate on those Vile chaps in claret and spew.

Martin Braithwaite: Why have Barcelona signed a Middlesbrough flop?

Barcelona taking full advantage of the rules once again!

Source: https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/51576625

Footnote
"La Liga strugglers Leganes are furious Barcelona were allowed to sign Denmark forward Martin Braithwaite, 28, outside the transfer window, and hope they will be granted the same permission to sign a striker"

Am I missing something here? Leganes accepted an offer of €18 million for a 28 year old journeyman forward who they paid a rumoured €5 million for 6 months ago (likely less), and they are “furious”. Why did they accept the offer then?

I think this is theatrics by Leganes in the hope they get to spend some of the money they have received.

They didn't accept the offer it was his buyout clause so they couldn't refuse.

I believe in Spain a player has to have a buy out, which is why you hear of 300-400m euro buyout clauses.

They absolutely should be able to spend as Barca have just transferred the problem to them. However they potentially pass on the issue again so where does it end.

I love watching Barca, but it was their problem and shouldn’t have been allowed to sign anyone. Keepers aside you should have to field a kid if you don’t have a senior pro.

Not surprised, he is a class act. We just didn’t know how to use him to his strengths
What have we done?
And what have we become
In this distance from our Mother
From the gates of late Eden?

Ahh fair enough, makes more sense. Even so, secretly they must be quite happy getting such a huge sum for a player like Braithwaite. If La Liga/FIFA allow them to make a new signing (as they should) then Leganes are the winners

If it had happened when the window is open then yes but they are saying because the windows closed what are they meant to do now? They are bottom but one.

Barcelona have been given approval to pass their problem onto someone else and that party has then been denied the chance to do the same.

The money isn't much use to Leganes if the terms of payment are in line with Barcelona's usual 'manyana' plan though.

Man City beat Real Madrid at the Bernabeu. I quietly fancy City to win the champs league this year. Nothing to play for now in the league, no European football next year but still one of the best teams in the world. Perfect storm.
