    Europe’s governing body wants yet another tournament so here are some modest proposals, from a Cup Losers’ Cup to a tournament only for Arsenal

      Football 365 on rejigging the European Club competitions. For what it's worth, I agree with them.
      Football365 - None of this will happen but John Nicholson has ideas. And they don't involve seeding or group stages...

        they need a cross country league for countries that have very bad leagues - like Ireland(North and South).

          Great to see a historic Cork venue full to the rafters with supporters, the best Irish players that every played the game of soccer on the pitch and all for a great cause.

          Anyone who thought his was a bad idea should hang their head.

          Kudos to Michael o Flynn for getting all this done.

            Man U were involved in two Penalty Shoot-Outs today. They won the first, in Páirc Uí Chaoimh, 3-2.

            However they lost the second, in Old Trafford, 7-8 to Derby.

                  Glen Hoddle had a heart attack yesterday. He's in a "serious condition" in Hospital.

                    Just after checking the Kick-off times for Lansdowne on Saturday. The Women's Final starts at 12:05 and the Men's at 15:40. Three hours, thurty five minutes between the matches. WTF?

                      Just saw the first goal Liverpool conceded tonight. A corner to Red Star and the only player on the line was the 'Pool 'keeper.

                      WTF?

                        Liverpool absolutely dire. Lallana is useless and always was. Salah has been found out and has become a liability. Cannot cope with tight marking. His game depends on subtle touches but defenders are now right on top of him and he simply gives the ball away time and time again. Liverpool actually had much better chances than Belgrade who took 2 out of 2 while the 'pool faffed around in the box. Attitude truly dire.

                          Liverpool are at their best counter attacking . last night they couldn't cope when they went a couple of goals down against a team who defended well enough by just doing the basics.
                          they need a proper winger or two up front at time to stretch the play, mane is good but he is not a winger, salah needs room ,it is always more difficult after having a good season you become a marked man.

                            Does this knob ever let go his dislike towards rugby. This situation makes international football look ridiculous but somehow he manages to link Cj Stander to the reasons why.

                                Pathetic blathering from MacKenna. Get real. The reason Rice hesitated was for only ONE reason: had he got a real chance of playing for England? it was a career choice and zilch to do with native loyalty.
