It's called accepting your history (and the grandeur that goes with it). You should know that in southern Germany...

Hah, trolling failed. Southern Bohemia or Western Hungary would be more accurate for Vienna.

Geez, Moyes. Just because you replaced Fergie doesn't mean you have to start whinging like him!

I remember good starts that ended in nothing, our next two fixtures are toughies in the league but after that we have a run of very winnable games, if we win most or all of them I will be very willing to believe in a automatic promotion run. I have no desire for a playoff spot as we possibly have one the worst playoff records in football league history...

1 leg win, 2 leg draws, 5 leg defeats

0 overall tie wins

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

I don't think anything will ever top that Yeovil tie in terms of hilarity!

Top 4 in the PL this season;

Man Utd
Man City
Chelsea
Tottenham

No idea which order they'll finish in.

Be interesting to see whether Arsenal finally splash some £££ before the window closes. If not, I fear for them.....

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

So guess the name of the team who can have the ball 77% of the time, 38 shots and only one goal at the 86th minute (Cavani). Final result : 1-1 with Ajaccio scoring with their only shot after 9 minutes.

Ici c'est Paris, this can't be a normal team

I saw that game, or at least I was dipping in and out of it. Every time I checked back PSG were hitting the bar, or having a shot cleared off the line!

To be fair, their keeper made some great saves. Didn't realize that Ravanelli had gotten himself a job over there.

Ravanelli visiting the Parc des Princes, it's like a criminal visiting the crime place 16 years later

Europa League group phase once again - yeah.

If we couldn't be the worst team in the tournament this time, that'd be great.

Re: (UEFA) Football Thread - Football not Soccer

The club from my hometown (Rijeka, Croatia) just eliminated VfB Stuttgart in the playoff round of the UEFA Europa League and made it to the group stages for the first time in club history. There they will face Lyon, Real Betis and Vitoria Guimaraes.

I was at the home game (the stadium is located literally half a mile from where I live), and here's a taste of the atmosphere:

Congratulations. Nice video too.

However, I have a question about Dinamo, how is it possible that they are so shit? Every year they sell young players for like 20 million € or something and they never do anything with that money or with that obvious potential they have in talented players (on the European level anyway) - are the club's officials just that corrupt or total morons?
