    football-Italia thinks an announcement by UEFA might be made Tuesday. No guarantee that thought goes into such an announcement.

    Sky and BT will not be providing refunds on subscriptions, as the suspension is only short. If the suspension is lengthened, they will come up with some other excuse.

    Just interesting and fun to read the piece of the Guardian about Sp*rs and Boorinho.
    In german they call what I feel ‘Schadenfreude’, basically joy of damage (to others).
    This says it all…..

    OT: FC Halifax 0 1 Ebbsfleet United

    Guess what? Mike Dean was NOT the referee! 2154 fans in attendance, including 52 for the away team. And the game was on TV.

    Was there a streaker with Tesco tatoo’ed on his back at this game? 🙂

    I think there was an article out about the EPL possibly losing 700 million (pounds) (maybe it was 750). Later yesterday or the day before, I pointed out to an article which talked about LaLiga I think losing 700 million Euro. Today, there is an article out of Italy about Serie A losing 700 million Euro. All these leagues are the same “size”? Why does everyone mention the 7? Is there something special about 7?

    I guess they are just numbers. Now I see an article which puts the EPL losses at 10 billion (pounds). We could have tons of articles, all saying the same thing except for the number being different.

    Tony, can you imagine the chaos at BTSport if goal-average were still in use? Their “team” weren’t even able to add goals scored to points totals at the Emirates Cup. Savage or McManaman “doing” long division. What a thought.

    Good article.
    My memory is that the idea of 3 points was to stop teams playing for a draw, or games petering out, as one or both settled for a draw. Not to stop draws as such. If this is right, then the move to 3 points for a win has I believed worked. Games tend to intensify towards a climax (as entertainment would want) in the last 20 minutes or so as one or both teams push for 3 points.
