    I hope Man City for once actually perform in CL and knock juve out, because no way are Ajax beating them.

    On top of all, it was none other than Julione Cesar being Juve's good luck charm at the draw. Surely Dogen has a gif of this.

    Very predictable

    Ajax - Jube = Jube to semi's
    Liverpool - Porto = Liverpool
    Tottenham - Man City = Man City
    Man United - Barca = Barca

    Very intresting draw, the 4 best sides kept apart, IMO.

    I expected one all English tie, but as Spurs are involved it's not that interesting, any 2 of the other 3 English teams playing each other would've been a great tie.

    Predicting Rube, Liverpool, City & Barca to get through. 4 best teams left, can't see any upsets at this stage but that's why I love the CL, you just never know!

    Honestly I never thought they could knock out Real Madrid, but they seem to bite hard. It won't be an easy ride for Juve at least. They are absolute favourites to qualify but Ajax is there for a reason though.

    i'd say that the main difference compared tothe previous decades is that the biggest team can buy the best available for nearly every role. that was never the case in the pre-bosman era. not to mention that in the past no one was ever able to play in champions league every season.

    so of course a great forward will score and win much more than other great players of the past.
    My username has nothing to do with the player of liverpool fc, it is a reference to an Italian novel.

    ^Not only that, football has become softer aswell. It reminds me a little bit of modern day NBA.
    Scoring has become easier, fouls are given more easier etc...

    Remind yourself how Luis N. Ronaldo got butchered when he was in his prime compared to the featherweight of C. Ronaldo.

    Might be unpopular given Inter's current state, but Champions League should just be winners of each national league. Letting multiple teams from the same league concentrated money and players in just a few places.

    They say, "lucky at cards, unlucky in love".
    Julione did the opposite (Susana Werner, sorry Ronie), so we couldn't expect him to be a good luck charm in the CL draw. But you never know.
    Also, #fixed.

    Unfortunately I can't provide the good ol' gif, but I'll make up for it with a picture from the interview that the Dreamcatcher gave to Diletta Leotta (new Queen of Calcio, move aside Ilaria D'Amico and Sky Juve) and DAZN, a few days ago at San Siro.
    Talking about the Triplete:

    Marco Materazzi created a group chat for members of that team and Mourinho is one of the most active in it. He always makes jokes.
    He also answered to an Inter fan and confirmed that yes, Arnautovic is in the chat. But that should have been obvious

    I'm under the impression Diletta Leotta is actually younger than Ludovica Pagani(?) but I've always thought she looked much older. Personally, I'm still #teamNagajaBecaalossi #BUU

    This week’s secret Champions League talks you didn’t know about – and how they could change European football

    Europe’s top clubs met UEFA to discuss revamping the Champions League with relegation, promotion and weekend games. Should we be worried?

    This week, a meeting took place that could affect how you watch football, when it takes place and the success of your team. And you probably didn’t hear about it.

    That’s because it was, to all intents and purposes, a secret meeting. No press-released agenda, and no statement made afterwards.

    When the European Clubs Association met with UEFA in Switzerland on Tuesday, major reforms to the Champions League were on the agenda. This was the first formal meeting to discuss significant changes to European football that have long been mooted. While the ECA is the only representative of football clubs recognised by UEFA, in really just represents a number of elite clubs across Europe.

    Weekend kick-offs

    These superclubs were, according to the Wall Street Journal, gathering round a table to discuss moving Champions League matches to Saturdays and Sundays rather than weekday evenings, as well as plans to expand and reformat the competition to include relegation and promotion.

    These were only initial discussions, with no changes to come in until at least 2024. However, the dramatic moves on the agenda would start to put in place a supremacy of the European tournament over domestic leagues, and would be seen as the first steps towards a European Super League which could eventually take the top teams out of playing in the national leagues completely.

    Encouragingly, it seems there has been some pushback: Spain's Mundo Deportivo reports that Barcelona are against such moves, while the English clubs represented are also sceptical. These changes, then, won’t be happening soon.

    Three big problems

    But don’t think that’s the end of it – there are three major issues that remain.

    The first is that, realistically, the opposition to these changes is based on financial reasoning. The big clubs most pushing for more Champions League games, and at more prominent times, are reportedly Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain – sides that win their own leagues every season and are struggling to exploit them financially any further. Winning Ligue 1 delivers less prize money than being relegated from the Premier League.

    By contrast, La Liga has television deals that benefit Barcelona and Real Madrid quite nicely (if no one else), and the Premier League remains one of the most lucrative sports franchises in the world.

    No sensible chief executive is going to risk the benefits of these current set-ups – but if you think the people who run any of the top division’s big sides are making these decisions based on the good for English football, we've got a £265,000-a-week loan move for Radamel Falcao to sell you.

    The second problem is simple maths: six into four won’t go. The Premier League has six sides good enough (and, importantly, rich enough) to compete in the Champions League, but only four Champions League spots. If that sustains, they may well decide that the current system no longer works for them.

    Finally, these semi-secret meetings don't inspire confidence. A UEFA spokesperson confirmed the meeting was taking place once details had been leaked, but behind-closed-doors discussions such as these suggest only that the people attending would struggle to convince their clubs’ fans if the arguments were had in public. And this was only the first meeting down this route.
