Decided to watch some more European football/soccer after enjoying the women's Euro final. ESPN+ carries La Liga and Bundesliga matches. I went with Schalke 04 v Borussia Monchengladbach today. Pretty fun.
Ole Gunnar Solskjær not looking too shabby anymore.

What are (North) Americans doing to football? Besides elevating the women's game, I mean. I was at the opening match of the 1999 Women's World Cup in New York, incidentally. Nosebleed seats, but hey, I wasn't made out of money. I wanted to go to the final too, but that was in California and, again, money.Good man though as always as I hear someone in NA is enjoying football I get a bit scared as the less they like football the better the game is/will be. I generally hope US would get a mental block on football and completely ignore it. Canadians are far less dangerous.
Not that US is the only one messing stih up. I think Yakuza & Colombian cartels are the only ones of international philantropists who don't own a team in EPL .
Sportwise pretty much everything - you can take a closer look at the former NASL rules for example when they were sort of free to mess up the rulesanyway they liked. Or you can take look at the other two popular sports were NA league is dominant - icehockey & basketball. Nobody knows who'll play in next Continental champs, World champs, Olympics or in tournaments for access in those games or which rules are used in any stage of any given games - in short it's a massive ef up due to the most profitable league using their own rules rather than following common consensus for most everyone's benefit. In athletics the short live sport series wasn't exactly the standard bearer of anti-doping measures in the 70s and so on.What are (North) Americans doing to football?

p.s. Looking solely at per-game average attendance, I think Mexico is top-5 in the world, and MLS is in the top 10. iirc, Atlanta and Seattle get 40-50,000 per game. I think at one point, MLS was averaging more fans per game than Serie A.
Ah, so you're a Mourinho who prefers winning 1-0 oer a 6-3 romp.
Oh, hey, ESPN+ is showing Union Berlin v Bayern on Saturday morning. That might be worth watching.
It's what he said back when he was at Chelski in his last (so far) spell. Even if the first tiebreaker is goal difference so it's better to win by 3 than by 1.Not even the current Special One like mourinhoball/bus but 6-3 isn't necessarily more entertaining than 1-0.
Well, a Mexican club from Sinaloa once incorporated Maradona as their head coach.I don't think FC Escobar is very likely but in case it'd be under consideration EPL's opposition to it would be equally unlikely; hey why not more global representation. I'm not at all aware who owns Mexican teams but I assume the Mexican teams are far more likely subjects.
To me he'll always be Bullet-tooth Tony.Grendeldef said:Every time Vinnie is mentioned Clarkson's introduction of him in TG pops into my mind - it's one of the greatest short introductions ever and yes, these Gunners aren't looking like Invincible, yet anyway.
