Valencia is also the goat team, too.

Jack Grealish and Ollie Watkins are definitely not Ballon D’Or quality, let alone Premier League Player of the Year quality just yet. It’s the same bandwagon who jump on Kanté just because he did well in the last stages of the champions league.
Forget about Edouard Mende and Kai Havertz.

The English media loves to hype up players who scores more than one goal against any random opponent. Then they throw in random transfer rumors like Grealish to Barcelona simply to drive online engagement. It's not just tabloids like Daily Mail that do it, but the mainstream like Sky Sports.

Apparently Man City are gonna go for Grealish to replace Bernardo if he leaves
Lot of ifs there for a quality CAM
and there seem to be a fair few of these rumours going on.
People base all of these off the fact Grealish can play CAM
He’s a Left Winger, with his best role as Left Winger
Replace gold digger sterling lol

Apparently there are Sterling to Arsenal rumors. Like Arsenal's going to ever get him, and if they are, that's like the millionth winger bought in recent times.

He’ll probably flop like Willian.
I doubt he’s going to Arsenal either—why would they actually invest in a good player?

If Kroneke will invest in Sterling, he may as well turn into another Nicolas Pepe.

Pepe was a one-season wonder, Sterling ain't a one-season wonder lol although he'll probably become unnoticed like Auba and Lacazette

Given that they'll be in Artetaball's system, it's not going to end well. Of course with Kroneke at the reins, Arteta will never get sacked.

Madristas have long hated Bale because he doesn't speak Spanish and plays golf. His car often got vandalized during his time there because Madristas love to blame him when they lose and solely him.

Maybe they’ll actually play him when he gets back.
Mbappe Benzema Bale would be a pretty good attack.

To be fair Ancelotti is the manager and not Zidane. Oh boy Zidane never rated him highly and would often relegate him to the bench despite seeing his qualities.

Since 1997 Olympiacos have won the title in all but four seasons. In the near 100 year history of the Panhellenic championship, the longest Olympiacos have gone without winning it is just 7 seasons. It's an absurd record.

It’s ironic because Tiraspol is part of a breakaway state in Moldova
Are we really surprised by RB Salzburg, though? What have they done for us except be part of Red Bull’s large entourage of football clubs dotted around the world.

What happens with the Europa Conference League qualification spot in LaLiga since Villarreal won the Europa League? Does it go to Celta Vigo?

No it doesn't - Villareal were not automatic qualifiers, they would've gone into the play-off round - it promotes some teams to the qualifying round above where they'd normally enter and there's a bye for a team that enters via losing in the UCL qualifiers. It's confusing.

It would be much simpler if UEFA just went around saying:
YOU GET A EUROPEAN SPOT! YOU GET A EUROPEAN SPOT! YOU ALL GET EUROPEAN SPOTS!!! Instead of making some prolonged rant about association 17 and the Swiss domestic cup

I just call it the EL2. Makes it much more complicated for what it's worth. Soon UEFA will change the CL to a crappy Swiss model that is even more complicated to figure out.
