Radio 650 guys saying that even though we win our group we will be in the bottom two groups in the Big Cup.  And the US and Mexico, even though we finished higher will get into the top two groups.  Seems like soccer is stupid in how it qualifies teams.  We should be better than team we just finished high than, shouldn’t we?

I can't stand the Portuguese pretty boy and I hope for him to lose, either when he pulls on the sweater of his club team or his national team, but this is just awful news....

Football legend Cristiano Ronaldo and his partner, Georgina Rodriguez, announced on social media Monday their baby son has died.

Ronaldo and Rodriguez said, "It is with our deepest sadness we have to announce that our baby boy has passed away. It is the greatest pain that any parents can feel."
The Manchester United and Portugal star had announced in October he and Rodriguez were expecting twins. In December, they announced they were expecting a boy and a girl.
Ronaldo and Rodriguez wrote Monday on social media, "Only the birth of our baby girl gives us the strength to live this moment with some hope and happiness. We would like to thank the doctors and nurses for all their expert care and support. We are all devastated at this loss and we kindly ask for privacy at this very difficult time.

 

No-one should ever have to bury their child....:sadno:

Arsenal lose 2-0 Today at Newcastle

And Tottenham beat Burnley 1-0 on Sunday.

 

Which means Arsenal has to beat Everton in their last game of the season and Tottenham has to lose to last place Norwich for Arsenal to finish in the final four and make it to the Champions League next season.

 

And good luck with that.   :sadno:

Got rid of the guaranteed contracts that the women had and moved to entirely performance based.   Prize money is pooled and then divided.

Premier League approves Chelsea sale to Boehly consortium

 

LONDON — The Premier League has approved the proposed sale of Chelsea to a consortium fronted by Los Angeles Dodgers part-owner Todd Boehly, although the British government still needs to sign off on the deal before it can be completed.

Boehly has already agreed to buy the club for 2.5 billion pounds ($3.1 billion) — the highest price ever for a sports team — with Roman Abramovich’s ownership tenure poised to end after 19 years.

The Premier League said in a statement Tuesday that its board “has today approved the proposed takeover of Chelsea Football Club by the Todd Boehly/Clearlake Consortium.”

It added that “the purchase remains subject to the government issuing the required sale licence and the satisfactory completion of the final stages of the transaction.”

The deal has dragged out as the British government makes sure that Abramovich, who was sanctioned over his links to Russian President Vladimir Putin, does not profit from the enforced sale of the club.

Chelsea has been operating under a government license since Abramovich’s assets were frozen in March and it expires on May 31.
