They could announce it at the semi stage. So the CL final could take place in Paris, handier for the last 4. That’d be 6 weeks in advance. World Cup play offs are arranged in less time.

The vast majority of CL semi-finalists are from England/Spain/Italy/Germany which means if you pick the host venue based on convenience for the teams then all the finals will be in western Europe.

Jesus! If you’re a club supporter and you want to watch your team in a club final, you’ll go! Anything else is bullshit
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

They’ll concentrate more on the league if that happens!

They were found guilty of an FFP breach previously, widely accepted as one of, if not the richest club in the world. They were fined.

Get the house of them being found guilty here and being asked to take part in the UCL qualification stages.

I guess Bale is leaving Real Madrid - Zidane today said he wouldn't play Bale even if they were allowed 4 subs - this after a 2-0 home defeat! Brutal & pretty nasty.

As much as I love Zidane I think he'll not be as successful 2nd time round.

Bale probably does not fit his vision or style. Some times you have to be nasty to force players to leave. There are not many players who want to leave Real. You leave Real you are taking a step down. You see players all the time who won't leave big clubs.

Although this is being reported everywhere, Zidane actually said that regardless of who he brought on, the same question (why not player X) would have been asked of him.

Don't believe everything the Brit press report. Pure BS translation

God the Camera angle of the Europa League final nearly shows the whole pitch. Are the pictures coming direct from a satellite?

Scrub that comment.  Looks like he's actually going to win a medal so wouldn't fit in at Loserpool! ;D

Strange atmosphere at it also, has the feel of a pre season friendly rather than a European Final.
