Yeah making it to the CL is a big deal. Too bad this happened this year, because i'm liking a lot how Athletic de Bilbao is playing with the 2 Williams brothers up-front plus Sancet, those make a super nice trio with super intense high pressure, i don't think anyone can win at San Mames. Best team they had in last 25 years and would be in CL spot if it wasn't because of Girona.

David Alaba tore his ACL today. That means Real has 3 players this season with ACL tears. Courtois and Militao being the other two.

Looks like they will be signing a CB in January.

Atletico lead 3-1 with 10 men, just to get fucked by Getafe in the last 5 minutes and they got a tie.

Anyway, this atletico team is nothing special. Their defense is not as good as it once was.

Trippier has been shit for the last two weeks. Other than that, Atletico is having a good season.

Sorry, my brain went bzzzz, because Newcastle is also having a drop in performances. Savić has been an idiot lately.

Salzburg and Leipzig were in the same group at one time, right?

Girona can easily play.

FC Barcelona may be kicked off the UEFA Champions League over financial fairplay, per report​

The sanction could be two to three years for violation of UEFA's financial regulations

FC Barcelona's permanence in the UEFA Champions League is currently under review after having violated the league's financial regulations after they reported an income of 304 million Euros, ($334 Million). The German newspaper Die Welt published on Saturday an investigation in which it concludes that there is a real threat that Barcelona could be expelled from the Champions League 2024-25 tournament.

FC Barcelona's sanction could be two to three years for violation of UEFA's financial regulations​


Barcelona reported last September earnings of $334 million, however, as far as UEFA's financial regulations are concerned, only sales that can be directly attributed to the soccer business are decisive. The heavily indebted club's latest annual report also reported significant cash receipts, for example from the sale of future TV and marketing rights, as well as from other sports.

Expenses do not match ordinary income. They are all extraordinary. The process that was opened at the time by UEFA against Barça was never closed. It is still pending resolution.

According to the German media, this income does not influence UEFA's assessment. Die Welt, assures that UEFA members have even commented that the club's balance sheet was "a disaster". The possible sanction that could be imposed on the Azulgrana team could be a suspension "for two or three years" without participating in the Champions League. "The greater the loss, the greater the penalty," sources from the European body told Die Welt.

Barcelona was already fined half a million euros for misdeclaring its profits from the disposal of intangible assets in the 2022 financial year.

Negreira case
The Financial Fair Play issue is not the only problem Barcelona has with UEFA. Last summer, there was speculation that the 'Negreira case' would take its toll on the team in the form of a sanction this season. Finally, it was not so, but the file in the offices of Nyon for the alleged purchase of matches is still on the table.

What the fuck?

UEFA should abolish these ownership situations to begin with.
I agree, i often fantasize about being one of the worlds richest and owning clubs in top leagues

also i liked the idea PIF buying Inter along with Marseille joining Newcastle as richest club possibly breaking transfer records once again

I wonder how much we can press on Witsel, Simeone has done quite well to cover him with 3 CBs playing low and near each others.

It's January 10, 2024, and Atletico have already had games that ended 4-3 (lost) and 5-3 (lost AET)...they're actually legit vulnerable defensively right now, too bad the first leg isn't for another month.
