    I say, tit for tat. His club is extremely unprofessional in all honesty. Forcing out a player, under contract, privately and publicly. Not to mention openly tampering with other clubs players (LM10), doing totally unethical signings (braithwaite, griezmann)...and the list goes on and on.

    Yeah but like it or not this is shit clubs do when they’re trying to force out a player or tamper with another clubs player. BArca are just a lot more flagrant with it then most clubs and for whatever reason they get away it it “more than a club” I guess. However denying him training would be more in line with the level of unprofessionalism shown here. They are still paying him so he should show up for training then he can do the cursory fuck you interview like Joao Mario does every summer.

    Well, as others have pointed out, Barca managed the case in a shitty and borderline illegal way, so I sympathize with Arthur, too. He probably shouldn't push it too far though, and I don't think he will.

    My username has nothing to do with the player of liverpool fc, it is a reference to an Italian novel.

    PSG is a mess. Tuchel is a straight up retard. I really hope Atalanta has their players fit and rested so they can whoop them. Hopefully they can get Illicic back for the second leg.

    All I care about the Champions League is that I can see juve fail again. The sooner the better and sweeter. But however I don't think Lyon has capacity to knock them out, so I'm putting all my faith on one of ManCity or Real Madrid.

    How the fuck Kuban Kransodar has same ranking as us, or Celtic, or the likes of Viktoria Plzen..fuck this

    Apparently the only way for us to move to the 3rd seed, not even 2nd, is if we make EL Final.

    Because we've tanked in Europe for years. We haven't won matches. The coefficients are calculated from the past 5 seasons and we have two ZERO point euro seasons during that time and one 4p season, that's why our ranking is so low.

    For the next 3 years, if we just give good Euro season ever year, our ranking will go up tremendously because those 0-4p seasons are the ones dropping out of the ranking first one by one (next CL draw, all those 3 are still in the ranking but after next season, first 0p drops off and so on). We should rack up those 20p-ish seasons from now on to be the stable factor in CL group draw again.

    I said this in EL thread already, by getting to the final we will finish this season with at least 26 co-eff points and by winning it we will end up with 28 points (now 17).

    Here's the ranking: https://kassiesa.net/uefa/data/method5/trank2020.html

    And I think we will be 3rd seeded. This season we were 46th ranked and got to the 3rd pot. It's a bit about luck which clubs ahead of us will make it to the CL. But let's just get to AT LEAST the semis by winning in reg/extra time, that would get us past PSV and Gent in the ranking (+4 points). Getting to final (winning in reg/extra) and another +4p, that would get us to 32th spot at the best case.

    Seed 3 or 4 doesn't make that much difference though, still group of death. When we were 4-seeded we got Barca, Tottenham and PSV. When we were 3-seeded again Barca, Dortmund, Slavia.

    We need seed 2 or 1 to be any easier.

    On the other hand, we will have a better team than the past 3 seasons and might just be ready for a group of death.

    The flip side to that argument is that being a 2 or a 1 doesn't safeguard you against drawing a tough 3-seed, though. In general, I feel this topic is a little bit blown out of proportion. You can get a tough draw as a 1 or a 2, or you could end up like Atalanta and get a manageable draw as a 4. And there's nothing anyone can do about it.
