i'll leave THAT to the silly people ...
meanwhile what a game at ibrox tonight, in the second leg of the europa league last32 between rangers and royal antwerp the glasgow side were already 4-3 winners in the away leg, and they stormed into the last 16 with an added FIVE-TWO stomping, to win 9-5 on aggregate!
also ARSENAL won too, a 3-2 second leg victory to go through 4-3 over benfica!
NAPOLI go OUT though, even though winning their home leg 2-1, it wasn't enough to overturn the tie and lost out 3-2 to GRANADA
AJAX, SHAKHTAR DONEKST, MOLDE and VILLAREAL all win through
eight more matches coming up tonight, including LEICESTER CITY and MANCHESTER UNITED

Watching Rangers vs Antwerp is like the football equivalent of the fight forever chant you see in wrestling
Having seen VAR in use again though I do have to wonder how it’s been made such a pigs ear of in English football however. Takes a few seconds in Europe and decision made no fuss, no armpit lines draw etc
It’s not perfect but you can at least see the benefit of it overall
A lot has been said about Liverpool’s injury record and obviously that has been a massive factor but I wonder how much no fans being in Anfield has affected them. 5 home losses in a row is huge after 3 years or whatever without one.
Liverpool also were quite exciting to watch when in full flow and if there’s one thing about this bad run it’s that Liverpool are not great to watch right now.

I’m seeing a lot of people getting pissed off with the Liverpool owners right now because they didn’t spend the money last summer. I actually think they’ve been pretty smart. In a few years from now, there will be a lot of teams in serious shit as they’ve spent a fortune one way or another and they’ve gone a whole season with a massive drop in their revenue down to empty stadiums. The Financial Fair Play people will be sniffing around as well, asking clubs why they spent so much money on players when they were unsure of how long the lockdowns would last. Spurs in particular are going to have a tough next five years or so, They have an amazing new stadium but they need to sell out every game they play to be able to pay off their debts. They’ve now had a year with zero revenue from tickets and concessions there. They’re going to find it difficult to find any money to spend at all unless they cash in on some of their stars. Barcelona are f***ed. United’s debt, which was always the biggest in the Premier League just got much bigger. Roma are in serious shit.
And that’s just talking about the bigger clubs in countries. The real damage will be done to the lower league teams who don’t have the massive revenue streams like other clubs do and rely on their ticket sales to survive.
So I’d be willing to accept a season of being financially tighter than a gnat’s chuff.
