Is the future of Italian club soccer something like La Ligue? Worse?
Edit: I mean Ligue 1, of course.
I think the Bundesliga is a better comp for Italy than Ligue 1. There's the big bad wolf at the top, who can muscle everyone around, and every other team is going to get picked over by scavengers in a hurry.
Any DC United/76er fans with any insight?
Lambert must be great at sweet talk.
I'm disappointed as a Spurs fan
I never know what the #### Paul Lambert is saying.
While it is true that they gleefully dominate the strongest economic region in the country, it isn't as if there isn't money elsewhere in Germany. What is true is that many of those affluent rivals have been saddled with hopelessly run football clubs in recent decades (I'm looking at you, HSV, Eintracht Frankfurt, Koeln, even Duesseldorf). Add to that clubs like Dortmund and Schalke, and you have a group of contenders that is at least as strong as their Italian counterparts (especially given the fact that the Germans all benefit from stadia that the Italians can only dream about). The question is whether any of the clubs can put together the combination of investment and management that would be needed to wipe out Bayern's current advantage. That's more difficult, in part because the 50+1 rule effectively eliminates the oligarch "solution".
Replacing Villanova with Tony Pulis would be an interesting scientific experiment.
Dark horse Tony Pulis isn't on the board yet.
If Barca called, would Sven listen?
Of course AVB leaves. I mean the opportunity to coach Messi and Neymar and Bale for the rest of their careers?
Newcastle needed some health luck to do so, but they did go down to the wire for a CL spot in the not too distant past.
The US back line is obviously the weakest link, but I think that's mostly down to a lack of talent. You'd think that the US would produce more decent CBs given the emphasis on size and speed here.
Size and speed are less the issue than positioning and distribution out of the back.
