serie a has the potential to rise. just like the BL.

juve are like manu back in the 90s or even city now, way ahead of anyone else domestically but fall so far short in europe. the difference - the manager. just look at how chelsea are handling things.

klopp needs to stay where he is and continue to prove his brilliance. how many teams could lose the players, 1st team players, as in players on the starting 11 every week, and still cope as well as bvb have. and blood new players all the time to back fill some of the biggest names. and they do not seem to find it daunting which is the measure of the talent bvb find. the experience of the manager is showing in eruope, the radical changes in the team sheet is starting to take its toll. they'll make top four.

if serie a becomes popular again, it'll be when the clubs start owning their own stadium. juve are not only the biggest club, but most of the others either rent or share their grounds. lots are moving towards building new ones, but it'll take a while and some will probably fuck it up.

and juve in europe was never a result of the manager; conte is a great coach. far better than allegri. but they just weren't as good as the other teams. pogba and tevez now should be able to make them a lot better, but they've still not got the financial muscle to get the biggest players in.

the snow thing vs gala last year was a bit of a fluke, but they were underperforming anyway.

also, inter/milan isn't the eternal derby, it's the derby della madonnina. don't think there's an eternal derby in italy, but i guess it'd be in rome if it was.

2! was referring to the croatian match, as it's considered to be the eternal derby.

Klopp won't transfer into the italian league. He was interviewed and explained that due to his lingual comprehension limitations, he'd only consider an english club for future collaborations.
Before he went to Dortmund, he worked at Mainz for about seven years and now he's at BVB for another six years, so far. Whenever he sets a cut to his current work, he can't see his next station for him to be a holding spot of a similar span. Most likely a two/three year contract, i bet.

It's Reus' sixth injury this year. He's out and hopefully back in the 2nd half of this season. Guy didn't even get red-carded. Props to Paderborn on the other hand for an amazing season with a terribly small budget.
Watched pieces of Dortmund's general meeting and basically they all try holding their players after this season's done.
Just let the guy do his job.

The 1-1 between Milan and Inter didn't really impress me. But with all their young players Niang,Mastour,Icardi and il professore, next generation is ready.
Just praying Roma will do nice and they will never have to face Buyern again.

people expecting klopp to have an instant impact, but i reckon it'd take at least a second for him to get to grips with a new league/the players to get what he wants to do.

the press will hound him though, which he'll love at first and then get more and more annoyed as results aren't quite going his way.

he's good enough to succeed, but he's been at dortmund so long, the transition will have an impact.

Lucky, lucky City.

Aguero is phenomenal.

Messi is on another planet, all-time top scorer in La Liga, Barcelona all-time top scorer, all-time top scorer in European football, top scorer in El Clasico's, most goals in a La Liga season, most consecutive La Liga matches scored in, most goals in a season, most goals in a single European Cup game (joint), Most La Liga hattricks in a season, most goals in a calendar year...

He's 27.
