OT: January 2016 Soccer Thread

Who will end Chelsea’s run? Will Real Madrid’s brand of super-star-driven conventional football keep the rest of La Liga at bay? Is this the year Big Sam finally gets relegated? Do Bundesliga fans prefer their corporate overlords Razenballsport or T-Mobile flavored? Whither Swansea? Does Pep need a pick-me-up?

These and other important questions answered in the second half of the season!

OTP: 26 December 2016: Sport, politics and ‘Russia’s aggression’

Germany’s national football team will monitor human rights in Russia during World Cup 2018, German sports officials said. We have heard similar statements before the Olympic Games in Sochi in 2014. Is it deja vu?
According to German national football team manager Oliver Bierhoff, “we will definitely not turn a blind eye on violations of human rights in Russia.” “We” stands for both the German Football Association and the national football team.
In general, the remarks from the German official appear to be another attack on Russian athletes in particular and Russia in general. The campaign lasts for more than a year virtually without interruption.
The topic to deprive Russia of the right to host the World Cup 2018 has surfaced again. This initiative came from US and British officials, who explain their anti-Russian stance with Russia’s “aggressive behavior.”

Little is happening in the baseball/politics offseason, so here’s some soccer politics to get us through the winter – courtesy of Pravda.

I’m too lazy to pick out matches of note, so you’ll have to keep track of schedules all by yourself.
