Not a particularly well-played match? I thought both teams played very well, except PSG’s inexplicable carelessness in front of their own goal. Everybody played hard and there was constant end to end action. What more do you want?
Listen, Kevin, the people still think you suck.
You forgot to mention that Javier Tebas is an unabashed Real Madrid fan.
To be fair, Isco is better than James.
That’s what I was thinking, too. The dribbling and finishing is eerily similar. If anything, he’s doing a better imitation of Messi this year than Messi is doing.
God only knows what Salah would cost considering Barcelona paid 160m euros for maybe the third best player on the team.
Except he could have negotiated a reasonable release clause at the time. And he didn’t.
“Best passer/assist man in the league?” When did Arsenal sign DeBruyne or David Silva? Heck, I’d take Christian Eriksen over Ozil.
Hmm . . . I agree that Real Madrid are in shambles, but I think your analysis is off in key areas.
I would agree RM got a lot of fortunate CL draws the last couple years, but let’s not get carried away. They played Atleti twice and Juventus in their 3 CL finals in the last 4 years. Atleti knocked out Barcelona in 2016 and Juventus did the same in 2017. I wouldn’t call any of those teams easy matchups for the finals.
Worth every cent? There are no other realistic suitors, and certainly nobody else talking about a 100m+ transfer fee. Barcelona are bidding against themselves, like they did with the Dembele deal.
This comment thread was the best Deadspin coverage of the Lakers this season . . . until this dumb comment.
5’10”? ESPNFC lists him as 5’8”. And watching him on tv, I’d guess he was really 5’6”. And maybe 115 lbs. soaking wet.
You think it’s unbelievable that a guy would get a few inconsequential emails and go from rolling his eyes to feeling slightly harassed, and then tell his secretary to tell this reporter he was out of the office, and then when someone mistakenly let a call get through pretend to be someone else? This sounds as true as…
Is making movie theater style popcorn a selling point? Maybe it would be helpful to explain how coconut oil makes popcorn stale and artificial tasting.
You Billy haters are individually and collectively stupid.
He’s definitely nothing like Curry, other than the willingness to take long range shots that would have given every coach from the last century heart attacks. But he doesn’t have a scorer’s mentality. He’s a classic table-setter, always looking to get other guys involved.
The deceptive thing about Ball’s 73% 2-pt shooting in college is that he took virtually no midrange jumpers. Almost every shot he took in college was a step back 3, a pull up 3, a layup, or a dunk. There were legitimate questions towards the end of the year if he could shoot at all from midrange.
