I just keep thinking "put it in 'H'" when I read about "levers". Maybe it's an Inter symptom and wanting to manage risk.

Was just wondering if Laporta is working pro bono for the love of the club 😉

I can't weigh in on the veracity of Italian media, especially regarding football but in Spain there are leaks/rumours and then there is propaganda. It's tough to get scooped these days with how controlled everything is. I would absolutely not describe Gerrard as a journalist - he is a mouthpiece so he isn't scooping, he is dishing what he's being fed. Under Barto, he was being fed BS. Under Laporta, he is being fed only what they want to share - yet when it comes to targets/strategy, he has yet to be wrong

I don't really follow capital topics so I couldn't weigh in on Madrid journalists. There are some good ones in Spain for football. Ramon Besa is someone I like along with Ruben Uria. For Barcelona matters, I have always had supreme confidence in Oriol Domenech - he's a footballer, Catalan and speaks honestly

The difference between one league having strict FFP rules and other league being pretty relaxed plus a massive tv deal.
And Nottingham Forest is a money laundering haven.

I knew it! The Sheriff and King John are still up to no good. Where's Robin, Little John and Friar Tuck when you need them.

Well, Sheriff (Tiraspol) is also quite similar.
And the Robinhood app is shit.

So there's that.

Does their owner also own a major Greek team? I think I heard the commentator say that when I watched a bit of their game.
Yes, he owns something that makes Juventus' history sound like a girl scout fairytale story.

Yeah. He also owns Olympiacos. Their owner is basically a mix of Agnelli, Berlusconi and Moggi to put it in Serie A terms.
