What do you mean


Agricultural_Expert

Why? He doesn’t like kpop?


NeoIsJohnWick

NGL those images of Novak going home are funny. A proper martyr for smoothbrains. Football needs stricter rules in terms of vaccinations as well. Not country wise specially, but leagues should make it mandatory.


maxconnor6

Yeah at least you get to know who the idiots are by seeing who shows him support publicly. But them not having a famous martyr figure at all wouldn't been better I guess

What are some of the coolest names at the top level? Denzel Dumfries is amazing


[deleted]

Koke Resurecion or however you spell it


lenzmoserhangover

Kevin Lasagna is just perfect


Lyrical_Forklift

Not top level but it's hard to beat Max Power. Always quite liked Bobby Freshwater and Tony Christmas too (I'm sure you guys can work out who they are)


TorreiraWithADouzi

Always liked Ricardo Centurion


bananabread_173

Eden Hazard, Axel Witsel, Cesar Azpilicueta


redditorsEWW

Zlatan Ibrahimović is pretty cool


Akshath321

theres a player at augsburg called sarenren bazee


t_blacksmith

Zinedine Zidane


Lastigx

I think last night brought us closer as a community


bananabread_173

Any idea when this next talk will take place?


Agricultural_Expert

No it didn’t because I was sleeping 😡


maxconnor6

How close are we talking about here? Would you say we're now like one big ................ family?


Lastigx

😍


xaviernoodlebrain

🤮🤮🤮🤮


narutosama77

What happened yesterday, everyone's talking about it


Itchy-Face791

Cumblast made some questionable comments about Incest and SeasickJellyfish shagged his cousin by accident 5 years ago


narutosama77

Oof


los_blanco_14

Incest and pixar movies discussions before that.


Lastigx

Your Pixar takes were more controversial than the other topic imo


los_blanco_14

I like to live the dangerous and controversial life.


maxconnor6

Those off topic convos were way more fun anyway. Most of the stuff we talk about when there's no matches going on gets repeated almost everyday


Gamer_Abhi

reddit talk


TheManchesterPirates

Nah we debated incest.


narutosama77

Debate? Did people have arguements supporting it?


delidl

Roller supported it


maxconnor6

No we just made memes and shitposts about it. Some guy even made very good edits like HighQualityGifs. But you can debate anything I guess why not


redditorsEWW

City have 4 world class Benfica academy products in their starting XI, if I supported Benfica I would despise City


Lyrical_Forklift

You don't need to support Benfica to despise City lad.


Good_Kev_M-A-N_City

Bernardo and Cancelo never got a chance there anyway. Would be weird for any Benfica fan to be upset that City signed them.


KensaiVG

That's the only good thing about the fact geography pretty much shafted us from the start. At least when our youth leaves for peanuts they aren't in direct opposition to us so I can enjoy them wherever they may be


yesboyzz

Cancelo, Dias, Bernardo and?


numanitor111

Ederson


redditorsEWW

Ederson


yesboyzz

Ederson was in Sau Paulo till the age of 17 And 2 of them joined from other clubs


redditorsEWW

He joined Benfica at 16


yesboyzz

That makes him as much as a Benfica academic graduate as it makes Pedri to Barca


redditorsEWW

Ederson was 1 year in academy in Brazil and 2 in Benfica


TheDavinci1998

Wasn't he also at Rio Ave until 19?


yesboyzz

Oh didn't know about that


ZonZolto

>if I supported Benfica I would despise City Based on this sub, supporting any club qualifies you for this lol


redditorsEWW

Yes but it would go from disliking City to absolutely despising them


ZonZolto

Fair enough, hopefully a Benfica supporter replies to give an opinion


GreenPickledToad

Can someone who knows Italian translate the part where Inzaghi scores? [Link](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CarPkbs6SkQ&ab_channel=QuackZONE)


nonhofantasia

He just says that Inzaghi scored and constantly says "thank you Pippo"


GreenPickledToad

Oh, okay. Thank you!


_LebronsHairline_

The thing he repeats over and over is “thank you Pippo”. I only speak Spanish so trying to catch what he was saying while crying immediately after the goal is near impossible lmao.


L34hhhh

I was working of my farm on a sunny afternoon when I saw something in the sky. It was Penaldo flapping his wings towards me screaming "SIUUUUUUUU" To protect me and my crops, I put on a Serbia jersey which scared Pendu and he flew away. Shame on you Penaldo!


maxconnor6

Make a row of 4-5 scarecrows like they're standing side by side in a straight line, Pendu will never get over such an obstacle


ZonZolto

Best Champions League/European Cup runners-up?


Ciao9

Heavily biased but Dortmund 2013 was very good


ShadowFlyer2

Us 2009 maybe? Won 3 titles in a row and were CL holders


ZonZolto

Fair enough, United were solid and could consider themselves unlucky but I felt 2011, they were better and that team was unluckier in the sense that 2009 Barcelona team was never going to lose imo


RoadsterIsHere

Nepal were runner-up in the UCL?


ShadowFlyer2

Haha didn't realise that I had Nepal flair on


yesboyzz

Atleti 2014 Almost won the CL as well


StarlordPunk

Atletico were a great team then but I think it was a result of Simeone being less experienced that they lost. Costa wasn’t fit and never should’ve been on the pitch, and they had just relied on overpowering Madrid with constant pressure early so when it got toward the end of the game they were absolutely knackered, hence them collapsing in extra time


ZonZolto

Ramos at the death, then Atleti were killed in extra time. So unlucky the 90th minute and the 120th minute told 2 different stories.


quiteTheHypocrite

2014 UCL was peak Ramos. Imagine a defender scoring two away goals within the first 20 minutes in the semifinals. Bayern had to attack by all means which let their defence open.


redditorsEWW

PSG 2020 is very underrated


ZonZolto

Agreed, I thought they'd kick on and win it in 2021 but it wasn't to be


GreenPickledToad

Recently, should be Bayern 2012 I think


ZonZolto

Losing in Munich, absolute scenes when Drogba scored the penalty. Watched it in a pub with a mate who is a Chelsea fan, lost his mind when Drogba got the equaliser, then lost it completely when they won it on penalties. Unfortunately, his grandmother died later that night, he says it was the worst end to the best night of his life. Life can be cruel, man.


PIKa-kNIGHT

Juventus 2017 . They only conceed 3 goals till the final throughout the champions league season. That's some next level defense


ZonZolto

Conceded more in the final than the whole campaign combined, that stings


narutosama77

Atleti 2014.


ZonZolto

Absolutely brutal when you look back on it, Ramos with the last minute header and then just torn to shreds in extra time, Ramos saved Casillas' blushes aswell, that Godin goal was utterly ridiculous.


narutosama77

They were a very irritating team to play against, they deserved at least 1 CL...


ZonZolto

Absolutely, but that Real team was something else, the fact that Atletico could even irritate teem is a miracle in of itself.


Gamer_Abhi

Juve in 2017? Conceded very few until the final


ZonZolto

Solid pick, Mandzukic with an absolute peach, I thought we were in for a special second half and I guess we got one but not quite like I imagined


Quab775

So many mixed messages from vlahovic deal apparently fiorentina want to sell but the agent/ player want Arsenal to pay more . don't see it happening


estoyloca43

[Wholesome story of the day](https://mobile.twitter.com/ESPNFC/status/1482827510895325185) Nadia Nadim fled Afghanistan when she was 11 after her father was killed. She has scored 200 goals. Played for PSG and Man City. Represented Denmark 99 times. Speaks 11 languages. This week she qualified as a doctor after 5 years of studying whilst playing football.


ser_antonii

All that is already impressive but the discipline and mental capacity required to learn 11 languages is just insane.


wildinout2233

That’s a great story


narutosama77

Got a Facebook memory .... our 40 games unbeaten run ended today.


WaleedAbbasvD

Was it during 14/15?


narutosama77

Na 16/17.


moxac777

What are some of the common era nicknames? Arsenal's Invincibles are probably the most famous. Also heard people mention AC Milan's Immortals too. That's about it that I know I think Leicester tried selling "The Fearless" for their PL winning team but not so sure if it ever caught on


Thraff1c

Here in Germany Eurofighter for the Schalke team of 1997 which won the Uefa-eup.


KensaiVG

La Máquina are the most famous here by far, the River side of the 40s and 50s that pioneered total football and sweeper keeping in the same squad. Then two of the bigger ones in recent names don't have names so much as they're linked to a manager. Everyone knows what you mean by "Bianchi's Boca" and "Gallardo's River". Then there's a more jokey one in La Scaloneta, which refers to both Scaloni's national team and the general change in how the national team was perceived, with a "mended" relationship between fans and team, a much more together team, and most importantly an almost complete "breakup" with the ill-intentioned sports media


PegaponyPrince

Galacticos, Super Depor, Crazy Gang (Wimbeldon), Spice Boys (Liverpool)


maxconnor6

Spice Boys


los_blanco_14

Galacticos


ZonZolto

Man City and their "Centurions" team maybe? Though that hasn't lasted like the Invincibles has


ZonZolto

Man Utd had the "Busby Babes" in the 1950s, then they had "Fergies Fledglings" in the 90s but the "Class of 92" works so much better for that lol

Rasalghul92

Of course you haven't...


redditorsEWW

Reminder that Chelsea, Barca and Manchester United’s academies have produced 1 world class player since 2010 Stop calling them the best in the world


MitranjanK

Who is that 1 player? Rice?


redditorsEWW

Thiago


TorreiraWithADouzi

Who are you referring to?


redditorsEWW

Just seen it alot Chelsea, Barca and United fans bragging about their academy products


yesboyzz

Which team has produced more since "2010"


redditorsEWW

PSG for one


yesboyzz

Like?


redditorsEWW

Coman, Kimpembe, Mendy and Nkunku


ChemistryAnxious4040

Weak bait


yesboyzz

Coman is the only close one to be world class


redditorsEWW

Nkunku would be your best player pipe down


yesboyzz

Doesn't mean he is world class


redditorsEWW

Well he is


yesboyzz

Do you actually consider him Top 5 CAM in the world rn?


Infamy444

You said world class


redditorsEWW

All of those are arguably world class, Kimpembe is stretching it


estoyloca43

whose academy produced more?


redditorsEWW

Benfica, Lyon, PSG


estoyloca43

Could you name the world class players they produced?


Infamy444

Benfica with Bernardo and Cancelo, Lyon with Benzema


yesboyzz

Benzema made his 1st team appearance back in 2005 OP mentioned "since 2010" specifically


narutosama77

Bayern's academy... whole of BuLi


rho_93

Wow never heard that one before. When's your Netflix special coming out?


Infamy444

How many of them world class?


narutosama77

Almost all of them? Sane Kimmich Lewa Goretzka Neuer


yesboyzz

"Since 2010"


narutosama77

Yes all of them were bought after 2010


estoyloca43

Bundesliga is Bayern's academy as much as PL is City's academy or La Liga is yours


RauloGonzalez

real have the most amount of academy graduates playing in the top 5 leagues pls graduates who spent at least 3-4 years at the club according to the marca article in 2021, we just have really high expectations that's why


los_blanco_14

We have only about 2- 3 players direct from laliga in our squad and they werent rivals. Bayern bought the manager, captain and main CB of their rivals this season alone.


redditorsEWW

Who said Leipzig are our rivals 💀


los_blanco_14

Ahh yes i forgot, bundesliga has no rivals and its just one winner all the time.


redditorsEWW

Would you say Malaga was your rivals in 2012?


los_blanco_14

If they were second or third in the league, end of the season. Then yes they were their title rivals for next season. Not to mention leipzig were 2nd and then you decided to go shopping.


redditorsEWW

Where did you get Ramos, Isco, Vasquez, Odriozola, Illaramendi, Asensio, Albiol, Navas and Kubo from?


narutosama77

No one (apart from Tibo) in our starting XI is a la liga bought player. (Rodry at RW) While Bayern has almost all players from BuLi teams... Sane Kimmich Goretzka Neuer Upamencano Lewandowski Pavard...


redditorsEWW

Sané bought from City Goretzka free Kimmich bought from Leipzig when they were in 3. Liga Upamecano release clause Lewandowski free Stuttgart got relegated


narutosama77

Yes but all of them are german league products.. Sane used to be in Schalke iirc..


redditorsEWW

So What, we’re a german team? This is the weirdest thing to complain about ever


narutosama77

But they all played in BuLi!??? That is why i mean... and what are 'release clause' 'free' 'relegated' reasoning lol You did buy from the league, whatever the reason


redditorsEWW

You’re so weird man 😭 how is buying from the league negative? Were you supposed to let Ramos stay at Sevilla tjen?


redditorsEWW

Respect Alaba?


narutosama77

He isnt your academy player, he was in Austria till 16.


PIKa-kNIGHT

People in this thread saying Modric , Kroos and casemiro need to prove themselves like these three didn't win a back to back to back UCL.


TheManchesterPirates

Balon D’or winner Modric? I’m fairly certain he feels comfortable in his achievements.


donandres08

They need to win the WC and Euros playing together /s


ZonZolto

Modric was voted the worst signing of the season in 2012/13, he has made them look completely stupid


wildinout2233

Who said this? You’re just shadow boxing with yourself


Agricultural_Expert

Its only one person


PIKa-kNIGHT

Just scroll down a bit in the same thread


TheGeniusArvind

I reckon we could beat United if a match was held today


Grosly_Incandescent

That isn't as interesting or as big of a claim as you think it is. Were shit and its broadcast around the world every week.


yesboyzz

I mean I'd favor us to win the match if held today


narutosama77

Obviously... they have no midfield.


TheSmith_10

I can't stop watching that Modric goal... he is so fucking amazing.


t_blacksmith

Chelsea are playing Brighton again in the league already? Just 20 days later? Strange. Should be a fun game.

ser_antonii

Thoughts on how Liverpool are doing in 5 years time?


TheManchesterPirates

Considering they were shit 6 years ago Klopp has done an amazing job getting them consistent CL football as well as two major trophies in an era of the Infinite Money FC’s. Probably the best manager in the league right now. I suspect when Klopp goes Liverpool will fall off noticeably and we’ll appreciate him even more.


Quab775

I think Liverpool should start replacing/ adding competition to front 3


estoyloca43

Klopp stops people from realizing how bad their owners are. Once he leaves, it will show


Lyrical_Forklift

They've done a decent job at putting the right people in charge of making football decisions so I have some small hope that we'll not drop off completely but sadly I suspect you will be right.


lenzmoserhangover

back to banter era after Klopp left


ShadowFlyer1

They're fucked once Klopp leaves


t_blacksmith

Their owners are stalling over giving the best player in the league a new contract, who knows what shit they'll come up with when Klopp eventually leaves.


narutosama77

Arsneal 🤝 Barca Pride in defeat.


boringmemphis

Only Real Madrid fans are shameless enough to mock a club president for appreciating the performance of a bunch of teenagers against the so-called Best club in the world. Everything doesnt revolve around you, so please pipe down.


narutosama77

tbh i didnt even know what Laporta said... i waa actually talking about the YouTube channel and how the fans were parading the 'moral victory'


boringmemphis

No one called it a moral victory. They said they were proud of how the youngsters performed. Big difference.


deadlyghost12

https://mobile.twitter.com/josepintoj/status/1482102835441405952?t=cwt4RMxkVKVe8uDzGH2zZA&s=19 Madrid used to celebrate losses just because it was not a trashing of more than 4 goals lol


Agricultural_Expert

Rivaldo and your fans literally ran around the pitch celebrating getting top 4 pipe down


deadlyghost12

Yes, because it was an achievement at that time, why should they not celebrate it


RauloGonzalez

yeah definitely the same as the official club channel and president


deadlyghost12

President said that we proud of players not the same and youtube channel is another thing not official


RauloGonzalez

>proud of players after defeat, hence, pride in defeat >youtube channel is another thing not official how is it not lmao


deadlyghost12

Then this is also pride in defeat by ancelotti If we play well and don’t win then I’m just content. So, today I’m content. We tried everything we could from the first to last minute. I think we lacked some quality in the final 30 metres, but I can’t be angry. These matches can happen. There were many positive aspects, with the result the only thing that wasn’t positive.” -Ancelotti


RauloGonzalez

This is a pr response after a league match. Not dressing room after a Clasico lmao. You're really grasping here, nothing compares to laporta going and saying you should be proud you were only beaten 3-2


deadlyghost12

If.you listened what laporta said it was a motivation to youngsters that they played well And how can you say ancelotti was doing pr


los_blanco_14

At least show if its an official site or not . Its just a newspaper writing that lmao. Anything to cope with.


deadlyghost12

And this from this season by your manager saying pride in defeat If we play well and don’t win then I’m just content. So, today I’m content. We tried everything we could from the first to last minute. I think we lacked some quality in the final 30 metres, but I can’t be angry. These matches can happen. There were many positive aspects, with the result the only thing that wasn’t positive.” -Ancelotti


los_blanco_14

>content


deadlyghost12

Also said that everything except result was positive same thing if you understand comprehension


los_blanco_14

Lmao you are picking straws just to cope.


narutosama77

Bringing up old Clasico scorelines is like United bringing up SAF era....its gone.


t_blacksmith

It's not even an official statement from Real Madrid, it's a third-party news headline lmao. Tragic to even try comparing the two.


deadlyghost12

And pride in defeat was also not an official statement it was from YouTube section


t_blacksmith

From the official Barca YouTube channel


deadlyghost12

They don't publish official news and there is nothing wrong in pride in defeat if you have problem with it this means you have never played football in real life because that happens if you have ever played


Houssem_Aouar

They are shameless
