One last note on the Arsenal loss - now the President of Rwanda is weighing in!

 

Quote

Just when Arsenal thought it couldn’t get any worse after their season-opener humbling, Rwanda president and Gunners fan Paul Kagame has stuck the boot in.

 

President Kagame vented after Premier League new boys Brentford – absent from the top flight for 74 years – waltzed to a 2-0 victory

 

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta admitted his team were awful. And President Kagame agreed.

 

“We just must NOT excuse or Accept mediocrity,” he raged after Friday night’s game. “A team has to be built with purpose to win win win.”

“I am sure we all know on whose shoulders the heaviest burden rests.”

Oh my...

 

Champions League should be a walk in the park for PSG this year...

Might only be for 1 season rumors Mbappe wants out and a mega transfer to Real Madrid could be in the cards for him.

 

Also crazy rumors that Cristiano Ronaldo yes CR7  himself is lookijgnto join PSG next offseason on a free transfer!

 

That would be historic for tge sport to have the top 2 players in the world of the last decade plus on the same team after being rivals in La Liga and the Champions League for so many years.

Quick question; is the financial fairplay not active for PSG because they were all free transfers?

Seems odd City weren't allowed to play CL football one year (even though they spend ridiculous amounts), but that this iteration of PSG are (considering the overall worth of the team is far superior than that of City when they get suspended)

FFP is only partly about transfers, it’s about the overall ability of a club to generate revenue vs it’s expenditure. However there are ways around it which PSG and Man City use where they are effectively sponsored by their owners to class it as revenue

So how did Man City get the 1 year ban from European championships? Or did it get overruled?
