Just seen my local side Mansfield lose unfairly 2-1 to Liverpool, all over them 2nd half and it took the enternal cheat Suarez to handball the winner.

Fancy that, Liverpool stealing something ey

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

Couple of penalty claims for Mansfield too, I think? Shame they couldn't at least get a replay - would have been great to see three Conference teams in the hat for the next round, along with Luton and Macclesfield (nice of us to let them go through by playing a complete shadow side!)

Speaking of cup upsets I see Lyon have been dumped out of the Coppe de France by third division Epinal. Great stuff.

What was that earlier about McCleish teams knowing how to defend?!

Yeps

And Paris won against Arras (5th division) 4-3. With a B team, of course
They can't say that we didn't respect Arras laying without Ibra, Thiago Silva, Thiago Motta and Sirigu but with Bodmer is like playing with 10 players against 12.

Funniest comment of the weekend was from my friend the Villa supporter on Facebook:

Forest fans, welcome to the McRelegator

Do people give a shit about the cup in France? As far as I know Spanish and Italian fans (and clubs) basically don't.

It's still somewhat popular (less than it used to be) and the interest for it depends of the results in the league and the expectations for your team.
I don't care if the PSG lose the cup because we are after bigger fishes but it's more prestigious to win the cup and the Ligue 1 the same year so if there is a possibility to do that, I'm all for it
It's also interesting for teams who want to be sure to play the Europa League.
Of course, it's totally different if you support an amateur club.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

I thought the Copa del Rey was quite well regarded in Spain. And don't they, Italy, Germany and France also seed their draws so that the top sides play smaller teams (over two legs in Spain I think)?

Only the 1st round for the Ligue 1 teams. There are 4 groups with approximatively the same number of team from each divisions and a team can only play another team from the same group. The next rounds are random.
The next team for the PSg is a Ligue 1 team (Toulouse FC). I don't expect exactly the same team that played against Arras

So Pep Guardiola has taken the Bayern job. Who will Abramovitch turn to now when he sacks Rafa in about 10 games time?

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

So yesterday the PSG won their match in the cup with a B team (half by choice and half by necessity). That was one of their most pleasant match of the season. To the point that trolls said that the team is better without the stars
