Soft teams like Madrid Barca and Atletico ;D ;D

Soft teams like Eibar - stadium with a capacity of 7,000- and Leganes with a stadium capacity of 10,000. La Liga money is hoovered up by the big two and to a lesser extent by Atletico. They don't have anything close to the resources the bottom half of the EPL can call upon every single year.

I'd say DT has the banner there already.

Leicester City unlucky they didn't get something out of that game. A good watchable game helped along with some awful defending.

Both teams have in common that both are past PL winners without a chance in hell of winning it any time again soon!

Enjoy the overpaid egos while you can. The funding model for TV sport is banjaxed

Maybe everything goes in circles and we will end up with Sports Stadium 2.0

I wouldn't have expected their fans to be ecstatic but the champions getting booed off at ht in the opening game just about sums up modern day football fans.

Was it the team or the ref they were booing though?

Just catching up with yesterdays action this morning, delighted to see Rooney score on his homecoming. I will never have the warm fuzzy feeling about him I have for other former Utd players but I don't have the hate for him that some seem to possess  :-\

Tthe Spuds players get paid far less than other teams. Max per week is exceeded by what galactico teams like Crystal palace pay. It could be a big theme this season.

Good start for all the big money new strikers, I think they all got off the mark?

Spurs will struggle to attract top player due to their wage structure and are a few top players short of what's needed to win the EPL.
