• Hello Guest. We are upgrading the server's XenForo versions. This has to be done in stages. 1.5.18 ---> 1.5.23 ---> 2.0.0 ---> 2.0.12 ---> 2.1.0. I will likely upgrade each one and leave it for a day or so to see if there's any kinks. When moving from 1.x to 2.x, our add-ons will cease to work. Much of the functionality of said add-ons is now native within XenForo 2.x, so I don't think we'll miss much if anything. IF we are, we can try out new 2.x XF add-ons.

Michigan Stadium has to be a terrible place to play soccer.
I have to admit, I was slightly underwhelmed when I went there in August. There really isn’t anything special about the place except that it holds a lot of people. From the outside it doesn’t look very big. I went to Notre Dame a couple of days later and that looked bigger from the outside. It was nice to see grass at Michigan Stadium again though.

They laid grass over the turf for the friendly? I'm still removing those fucking rubber pellets from ma'shoes when I was down on the field in June.

That Fortuna goal was beautiful. Union suck (despite beating Hertha...) but Steffen looks really solid for them too.

Why is Haaland even bothering with Bundesliga? I know one of his hattrick goals is a tap in that would even make Gabriel Jesus blush (@bruin @Yankee151), but he's still an absolute assassin in the box. His first goal was ridiculous.

He's going to need a work permit to come to England once Brexit happens. I don't think he has any senior national team appearances, does he?

I heard his father (who played in the EPL) didn't want him going there so early in his career. I wonder if Roy Keane has a kid playing somewhere and the younger Haaland gets some revenge.

Mexico should just go to 20 teams and get rid of relegation. Liga MX relegation is a joke.

Barcelona absolutely getting worked by Ibiza in the Copa del Rey. Somebody forgot to tell Barcelona the cup is now one leg.

Schalke look awful. Kenny is trash. They have zero midfield presence. Is Weston McKennie dead?

At least with those (to foreigners) no-names they don't have to move the cup final from Sevilla to Abu Dhabi or something

Kinda wish Ibiza beat Barcelona last round if it was gonna come down to this, tho

Atletico did it right. Although the way they’re playing I don’t think it was done on purpose.

Potential merger of the Dutch and Belgian leagues. Ajax vs. KOMPANY?

Would be weird but less weird than a Super League, I guess.
They've been talking about it for a while... at this point I don't think the clubs in the Netherlands have a choice. The league is so bad and there's so little money, they (along with other smaller leagues) have to start getting creative. They should keep the current set up of the Belgian League with playoffs. 16 teams with 30 match round-robin then top 6 into "final" group of 10 more matches.

The countries are tiny too. I drove from Amsterdam to the French border once in like 2.5 hours.

It would make sense for leagues like Sweden/Norway to combine.

IIRC there’s only 8 teams in Belgium’s second tier.

I’d like to see this step taken rather than a full blown super league.

I’d love to see how Benfica, Porto and Sporting do in La Liga or Celtic and Rangers in the Premier League.

Also LOL at Twente being mad at not being included in the Super League talks. These type of things tend to happen when you cheat and everyone in the Netherlands hates you.

Inter pick up the derby win today. 4 points ahead of Juve and they play on the 1st of March, maybe for the title, hermanos??

Pls tell me the Serie A nightmare is over...

Great, going to have to break out the three screens on March 1. Juventus-Internazionale, Real Madrid-Barcelona and Seattle-Chicago all on at around the same time.
