  1. With the introduction of the UEFA Conference League next year will this officially be the end of smaller nations and a quasi-super league? IIRC the Conference League will be for UEFA countries that are lower than 15th on the coefficient list. My question being, can countries who are below 15th on the list move up the next year while others drop down? And are the coefficients only factoring club success or failure, or does it go by international coefficient? Poland has a high coefficient for international level but their club level is complete crap, so what is it? I wish they'd bring back the CWC and just reduce the amount of clubs already in the EL. I think this time around clubs would take the CWC very seriously as they'd have a higher percentage chance of winning a European trophy over a dogfight in the EL.
  2. What are we guilty of? Financial irregularities or something? We haven't spent fk all the past 2 seasons or so, I have no idea what is going on.
  3. I remember an interview like that I think it was between Rio Ferdinand and Frank Lampard. After their playing days together at West Ham they basically stopped talking for like a decade because of the rivalry at club level. Crazy to think that considering Germany & Spain's success yet Barca/Real Madrid players still worked together at national level. Seems extremely petty in retrospect.
  4. Shearer's numbers speak for themselves. The beautiful thing about football is the tired (North American-centric) argument about "era adjusted" statistics don't translate well with football like other big sports here (NHL especially). I'll go back and watch France '98 videos as it was the first World Cup I ever watched and even though some of the tactics changed the quality of the players are still on par with the superstars of today. I watched a replay of Holland-Brazil in the semis and both squad were absolutely LOADED and their talents would be just as good today with the extra emphasis on nutrition and training techniques. Alan Shearer would absolutely be in that equation. His ability to score is unparalleled to and English striker I've seen in my lifetime. Which blows my mind how much depth the England squad had in the late 90s-mid 2000s and yet they couldn't muster up anything. England were a joke in Euro 2000 and it boggles my mind how they performed so poorly.
  5. Not enough TikTok videos being produced. 2 more weeks!!!
  6. Can't go wrong with a solid german pro, all business no fluff. Was really impressed by him on the his debut and hasn't disappointed all season. Great signing Mr. C!
  7. It was the first game after Pleat was sacked (surprise surprise), Shreeves was caretaker.
  8. Anyone know what to do in regards to ifollow support? For some reason the club website locks me out of my account, it doesn't even say my password is wrong (it's memorized to the site), it just says "contact customer support, or change password (click here)" and doesn't allow me to sign in to watch the games... If I ask to reset my password it never sends me an email to change it. I'm stuck in limbo...
  9. I would honestly just start with a players cap first. Cap squads to a max of 30 first team players, and the rest to u20s. Clubs like Chelsea have friggin' 50 first team players on the books, and at least half of those never even see the first team; they just keep getting loaned out 5-6 times and get released after they fail to pull up trees and ruin their development at a young age. I mean, look at Michael Hector. When clubs like Chelsea and Man City can't keep hoarding players so others just below them can have them then English player development will improve and top clubs will need to spend their money wisely. That doesn't prevent top clubs from paying their stars 400k a week or anything, but they can't have an extra 20 players at 50k-100k and keep them out of the hands of clubs like West Ham etc.
