The Tottenham has signed a young and promising left winger from Seville, Brian Gil, a player of the spanish team, very fast and good passer. He is playing in the olympic team right now, but he already had an excellent season in Liga and Eurocup.

I say it because I know there is a lot of spurs here

Thanks Piteas.

Spurs record of signing 'promising' players is pretty suspect. I hope we haven't ended Mr Gil's career early....

...one has to question how promising he is, if he's any good then why go to Spurs?

Maybe he is just "promising" to go to the Spurs because he has no other future in the sport?

a load of the traditional buying clubs are in a disastrous financial position. Barcelona are effectively bankrupt, don't think that Real Madrid are much better off, nor are Juventus. In effect its only the petro-clubs in a position to buy and I doubt he would have been a target for either PSG aor Man City. So in that sense Spurs may well have offered a chance for something new

yeah, can't see this ending well, esp given Levy's usual approach to these issues.

while it is traditional to note the early departure of Scottish clubs from European football, think its worth noting that St Johnstone seem to be taking things seriously. While obv Galatasaray are no longer the force they were a few years back, this is a pretty decent result ...

St Johnstone came to Eskişehir for a match in 2013, and from the video I see they have very friendly relations.

In the next match in Scotland both supporters in the same bus to a stadium.

If I was an employer and somebody did now want to show up for work, I would not want to pay them.

If I was an employer looking to hire someone, I would not want to hire someone who did not bother to show up for work at his previous employment.

aye, Perth is a small town on the south edge of the Highlands and the team and supporters are relaxed and friendly, so it should be a pleasant experience.

Then there was the communal singing between the two sets of supporters.

A big thank you to the ones inventing it.

Which makes me once more wonder if FFP is really a thing. Chelsea, PSG and City dodges stuff others do not.
Either FIFA needs to stump down on FFP, or abandon it I suppose, as right now it is a joke.

Mo Salah scored in his 5th season opening in a row, a record for the PL.
Liverpool is now also the 2nd team in the English league system to have scored 8000 goals.

To start with a win is always nice, especially against a weaker team (sorry Norwich fans).

Italy-Bulgaria 1-1

Italy is always at her worst in September, due to the late start of the Summer holidays for the players. Still, there was also a lot of unluck. Bulgaria scored on the only serious attempt they made while Italy wasn't able to finalise, among other things, 10-0 corner kicks (another indicator of how the game went).

Pity, because Italy, while still not firing all the cylinders, totally dominated the game. But Bulgaria erected a wall and was able to keep it up. Kudos to them.
