    Fuck off mate. A potentially jaw-breaking elbow = definite yellow.

    Having said that, they just stopped the game for about two minutes to decide on a definite red card and gave...a yellow card.
    From what I've seen the game clock keeps going which is nonsense. The ball is already only in play for about 60 minutes of a game because of referees getting too involved.

    Celtic: Lose 1-0 to Lincoln Red Imps but win 3-1 overall. Biggest embarrassment in European football.

    Rangers: Hold my beer.

    So as someone as barely follows Spanish football and rarely watches a game, Can someone with more insight tell me what the fuck has happened to Real Madrid?

    Sky have lost the rights to La Liga. 20 years they've had it.

    Eleven Sports have it from 2020, whoever they are.

    And so after winning his third Champions League as manager, Zidane steps down.

    Smart call on his part in my mind.

    Iker Casillas has had a heart attack, but is said to be stable. Yikes.

    Football might actually be coming home. The odds on England hosting 2022 have been slashed following Platini's arrest.

    We'll be lucky to have a professional league by 2022. The game is in real trouble down here.

    The broadcaster just posted a half billion dollar loss. They're cutting with a few hundred redundancies, they're defunding the FFA cup and won't broadcast after next year. They're trying to dump all football to other channels.

    Throw in the shambles that is a closed league system, arbitrary salary cap system and the massive focus on money making metrics FOR THE LEAGUE (not the clubs) and the whole thing is a massive shit show right now.

    Nah. The World Cup will create a massive revenue stream that goes into the pockets of a different bunch of corrupt wannabe politicians. All self interest here, won't ever change.

    Looks like a number of Turkey players and the federation as a whole may be in trouble for a military salute celebration made (I think its safe to infer) in support of action against te kurds.

    Take out any feelings on the issue and it's at best beyond stupid, Especially given what happened with the two Swiss players last year for a lesser 'crime'.
