    Gotta start bragging while we're still ahead.

    Anyway, prem news will continue.


    On to CL, its currently the play-off stages for the last ten spots in the UEFA Champions League group stage. Nothing much to comment on there, except for Liverpool.


    Group stage draw is on 24/08/17


    Kyiv's NSK Olimpiyskyi
    has been selected to host the 2018 UEFA Champions League final, the first European Cup decider to be held in Ukraine.

    More on that: here


    Will update the thread with the group stage match-ups once the draw ends on the 24th of this month.

    Beşiktaş have got a decent squad. Quaresma, Negredo, Medel, Talisca, Babel, Pepe (till he cans it and gets a red) and am hearing good things about Oğuzhan Özyakup as well.

    Pepe actually gave a penalty to Konyaspor at 90+ in a cup match, but we don't hate him for that and actually think he's a great player despite being so rough.

    Our line-up is good, but our keeper is so frickin' bad, Lyon match got ruined by him. Thank god our coach is going to let play Tolga Zengin on next week's match.

    Gotta say though, Neymar looks like he's having a blast, French Ligue or not. Let's see how he can carry the team going into CL.

    Group H the obvious end-all with Real, Dortmund and Tottenham. On paper we got an easy pass with only Benfica being an obvious problem.

    Wished we'd end up in E but G doesn't look so bad for us, we can at best finish the group as second.

    Lel Dembele moves to Barca for 2nd highest transfer fee. Also seems like there'll be some late Mbappe transfer drama. The transfer money went bollocks this season. I don't rate Dembele that much but will be keeping a close eye on his time in Barca.

    It's on tonight. Will try switching in between the Juve vs Barca and Basel vs United match. But will mostly be watching Pogba and co.

    Lukaku going strong even in the CL. Hope he continues this way. Messi ripped Buffon a new one with that performance. Also let's not talk about PSG right now. They're looking pretty scary. Pastore, Moura and Di Maria not even getting a looksy in the team right now.

    Yeah Tosun blasted that shit through the net. Liverpool's defence let them down even though they ran the show most of the match.
